Jen's Microwave Doggie Donuts

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
This recipe is dangerous. A cheap paper towel can't last 10 minutes in the micro and no paper towel on the planet could go in twice. My paper towel didn't catch on fire, but my cookies did after about 9 minutes. Even the non-burnt bits were hard as a rock. The only consolation is that my dog really wanted them. Too bad they were too hard for him to crunch them up.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2008
1T of butter is plenty. Use 1 can cream of chicken and 1 can cream of celery. Use 3 cups of chicken broth instead of water. Use the low sodium version of all of these (it will still come out salty). After 3 hours, pull the chicken out, shred it and throw it back in with 1/2-1 bag of frozen vegetables and whatever spices you want (I personally left out the onion and only put in pepper and garlic powder). Here is the thing with the biscuits- you can't CUT them, you have to TEAR them (in at least 4 pieces) and most importantly, you have to set them on top, not dunk them in- so in most cases, only 1 can will fit. Chances are, your crockpot will boil around the sides so after 1.5 hours, go in and move the center biscuits to the outside and the outside ones to the center. Cook for another 1.5 hours for a total of 6 and it should come out perfect. This is a really tasty and really easy recipe. As it is written, I would deduct one star for lack of clarity on the biscuits and one for lack of flavor and unnecessary sodium content, but with modifications, it's a winner, so I'm splitting the difference and calling it 4 stars.

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2008
Refrigerate often, work fast, and don't worry if they aren't perfectly round. No one will care. No matter what you do to them, people will eat and love them, but I found the ones dipped in white chocolate and rolled in macadamia nuts to be the biggest hit. Use 2 cups of sugar and chips and 1/2t of vanilla. The more fillings and toppings you use, the more complicated it gets. I'd recommend sticking to either one filling or one topping and switching out the other one. I piped leftover choc over the tops of mine. It looks pretty, but falls off easily. Ones coated in cocoa powder are really messy for people to eat so they gravitate toward other ones.

Persimmon Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
Made as written. Too cakey. Not really a cookie at all. No one liked them.

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
Do not cut them much larger than a regular french fry from a fast food restaurant. Dunk them in ice water to get them very stiff. Bake at 400 for 30 mins then crank it up to 500 for another 5 mins or so to get them really crispy. The seasonings are perfect just the way they are!

Spaghetti With Peanut Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
I used lo mein because I didn't have spaghetti. Likewise, I also used heavy whipped cream out of a spray can, reduced fat peanut butter, and regular soy sauce. Even with all the forced changes, it was still really good. It definitely needed some crushed peanuts, though. Thanks for the easy (and forgiving) recipe!

Incredibly Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
I followed the recipe exactly, but all my cheese seeped through the top and bottom so there wasn't much inside. I'm not sure what I did wrong. I thought it was great, though. My husband gave it a 3 and I thought it was a 5, so I split the difference and gave it a 4.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2008
I was nervous about my first attempt at making a lasagna for my new husband, who is Italian, but it was a big success! I made it exactly as directed except I used mild Italian sausage because I couldn't find the sweet one, and the refrigerated parsley paste that comes in a tube because I had no use for an enormous bunch of fresh parsley. As a previous reviewer mentioned, it makes about twice as much sauce as you need, but it works out great because you can save it for a spaghetti dinner!

Chicken Suiza Cornbread Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2008
As other reviewers have said, definitely cut the margarine and sour cream in half and add at least 3/4 can of cream of chicken soup and a jalapeƱo. I shredded my chicken instead of cubing it. DO keep the mixture an inch from the edge. Go ahead and use the low-fat or fat-free versions of everything (something I would normally never do)- it still tastes amazing. This dish is absolutely fantastic.

Banana Crepes

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2008
Overall, I personally found this recipe to be more trouble than it was worth. If I did it a second time, even though it would be even more work, I would cream the banana mixture. The solid banana just seems to be too heavy for what is supposed to be a very light dish. I won't be making it again, but if you love crepes and bananas and don't mind a little work, you'd probably like this dish.

Better with age. Would have preferred chicken that wasn't on the bone. Otherwise, just wonderful. Thanks!

Bourbon Whiskey BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
We weren't that fond of this sauce. There was nothing bad tasting about it, so I gave it a 4- we just prefer Sweet Baby Rays, which comes in a bottle and is easier, cheaper, tastes better (to us anyway), and doesn't waste my whiskey!

Fast and Friendly Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2008
Super easy. Much better with the additional ingredients suggested by others. My Italian husband gives them a 3; I think they're a 5. We're splitting the difference and calling it a 4.

Thai Sweet Sticky Rice With Mango (Khao Neeo Mamuang)

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
It is best to cool this by spreading it in a thin layer on a cookie sheet and then covering it. It cools faster and gets real sticky. My family found this too sweet so next time I'll reduce the sugar by quite a bit, but otherwise it was fantastic! Even my non-coconut eaters loved it!

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
Stellar even before you add (fat free) cream cheese and (98% reduced) condensed soup! I'm so glad I came across this one otherwise I would never have known you could cook chicken in the crockpot like this without using any liquid. It's amazing! I can't believe I made something relatively low fat that tastes this good and I'm amazed at how brown and tender the chicken is. Bravo!

Creamiest Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
This stuff is great. I do it in the crock pot because I'm lazy; I can only imagine how wonderful it is if you prepare it the way it states. I don't think the kind of milk you use matters at all. I've used whole, 2 percent, skim, and even vanilla soy. Without the eggs you can even cut back on the sugar. This recipe is really versatile and nearly impossible to mess up. It makes a surprisingly enormous batch and gets gobbled up lightning quick!

Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
Mine did not turn out light and flaky like the picture. They barely rose at all! They were very dense and flour tasting. If they had fluffed up they might have been good. I'll give it another try, but for now all I can give it is 2 stars.
