Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2013
YES! I've been trying to make good cornbread for months now, with mixed success. This recipe hit a home run. I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup and the baking soda to 2 tsp. I sprayed a muffin tin with non-stick spray and the batter filled the 12 cups exactly. After 17 minutes the corn muffins were nicely browned on the bottom, with a crisp exterior and a chewy interior. PERFECT. I resisted making other changes to the recipe, but I want to try other sweeteners (like agave or honey) and maybe adding some corn to the batter. But since it turned out so delicious, maybe I should just leave well enough alone! Thank you for this recipe.

Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2013
I added a few more veggies (to clean out my fridge) and used panko instead of flour to coat, but otherwise followed the recipe. The taste was pretty good - better than I was expecting, actually! I wish the texture had been a little crunchier - my burgers turned out mushy on the inside. Next time I might chop my veggies more coarsely. I used my food processor and I think it shredded everything too fine. I worried my husband wouldn't like them, but he said they were "delicious"! Oh, I did add some salt when I was sauteing the veggies, and I mixed some garlic powder, onion powder and dried parsley in with the panko to coat them. I cooked them on a cast iron frying pan over medium-low heat, and they held together well.

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2013
I guess this was easy, but it was also quite bland. The other reviewers had warned me, and I meant to add in some more spices but forgot. The consistency was good. I left the brown sugar out of the sauce, and it was just sweet enough (ketchup is already pretty sweet). I will probably try to make this again, but I will add in some onion soup mix, dried parsley, and more worcestershire sauce.

Rich and Creamy Potatoes Au Gratin

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2013
Everything about this recipe was perfect, except that the final result was much too rich for my taste. Next time I try this, I'll use whole milk and see how it turns out. I was surprised that the potatoes didn't turn to mush - I cut them maybe 1/8-1/4" thick and boiled them for about 3-4 minutes. They were nearly done when I moved them to the casserole, so I thought they were going to dissolve into mashed potatoes during the baking, but they turned out with the perfect "bite" to them. The Gruyère melted and browned nicely, too. 54 minutes in the oven was just right.

Mom's Breakfast Strata

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2012
Pretty good! Sauteed the veggies first, which prolonged the prep. Added garlic salt. Halved the recipe (eggs, bread, milk - kept veggies the same) and baked in 8x8 dish. Mine looked gorgeously puffy when it came out of the oven, but then "fell" 5 minutes later. Any tips for how to avoid this?

Quick and Easy Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2012
This was not our favorite. I think the taste came out the way it was supposed to, but it's just not a sauce that we care for. Oh well!

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
Five stars for ease! We've tried lots of pizza crusts - Boboli, Freschetta, a premade crust from an independent store, the Trader Joe's pizza dough that you roll out at home... None is quite right. The Trader Joe's crust was especially frustrating, since it would always start shrinking back when we tried to roll it out. I threw the ingredients for this crust together and had it rolled out in 15 minutes. I did mix the yeast and warm water first and let it sit while I got the rest of the ingredients out. I kneaded just enough to bring the ingredients together, and I was able to roll it out fairly thinly (the way we like it) to fill a cookie sheet with no snap-back problems. I prebaked for 10 minutes at 400, put on toppings, then baked another 15 minutes. It turned out crispy at the edges and chewy in the middle... just the way we like it! My husband is VERY particular about his pizza, and he loved this crust. Thanks for the recipe! UPDATE: I've made this four times now and it's been just as easy every time. Love it!! I've been wondering if I need the yeast, since I don't allow the dough to rise at all. Also, my daughter (7 months old) loves this pizza, and it makes a great teething biscuit (when prepared without salt) because it doesn't crumble in her mouth. I usually use 1 c whole wheat flour and 2 c all-purpose and top with the sauce from World's Best Lasagna (on this site).

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2011
I followed Brown Sugar Girl's changes to add some more veggies and cut the fat (though with 6 tablespoons of butter left in, this wasn't exactly health food!). This was very hearty and delicious. My husband, who is not a soup person, also enjoyed it. I used store-bought rotisserie chicken, which made the prep that much easier.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
I took all the previous reviewers' suggestions. Next time I'm going to reduce the amount of butter and boil the vegetables less (since the chicken I added was already cooked). But the end result was delicious!

Fast Chicken Soup Base

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
Delish! Added shredded chicken and egg noodles for a hearty chicken soup. Even my soup-indifferent husband liked it!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
Didn't have green pepper, but still delicious! Quicker and less messy than making burgers on the indoor grill.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
So easy. Sifted flour 2x. Forgot baking powder, salt and sugar and added them after I'd already mixed in half the wet ingredients with the flour, and the results were still delicious. Kept cooked pancakes warm in oven at 175. Cooked on a cast-iron crepe pan with heat at 3-4 (med-low).

Easter Bread Ring

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2010
I'm excited to try this again next Easter. My bread turned out a little dry and the icing was too watery, but I think I just need to practice. Making the dough and twisting it into a ring was pretty easy, and inserting the eggs in the ring also went well. My dad was very impressed, since his family always bought their Easter Bread.

Yummy Strawberry Shake

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2010
Other reviewers are right that this recipe needs to be halved, at least, to serve two people. This filled two 16 oz. glasses with more left over. When I make it again I'll add less ice - mine turned out less creamy and more icy.

Roasted Cajun Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
What am I doing wrong? I baked these once at 350 (had meatloaf in the oven as well), and they turned out OK but all shriveled up. Then tonight I made them at 450 and they burned after 35 minutes but were still kind of greasy, too. Is it because I'm using russet potatoes? Slicing them too thin?

Turkey Tetrazzini II

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
Delicious! Sauteed the onion with some garlic first. Halved the butter. Would probably be even better with some mushrooms and peas.

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
My first turkey, and it turned out beautifully! Thanks for the easy recipe. I did add more broth halfway through so I could continue basting the turkey.

Easy Chicken Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
Did as others recommended and used cream of chicken soup and cream of mushroom, added can of peas and jar of mushrooms, used water & bouillon as recipe does, used only about 2 tbsp of butter. Seasoned chicken with garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper and paprika before cooking. Mixed everything together and topped with shredded italian cheese blend, grated parmesan, and bread crumbs. Very filling!

Baked Oatmeal I

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2006
Fabulous recipe, and very easy. Scaled down to 6 servings and it fit nicely in a pie dish. Made it last night and refrigerated overnight, then put started in a cold oven and baked at 350 for half an hour. Made a few substitutions/additions following others' reviews: applesauce in place of oil, added a diced fresh peach. Has a muffin-y texture. Ate some with milk, but I think I'll eat it plain next time. Delicious!

Kellogg's® Rice Krispies Treats® Original

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2005
Pressing the squares into the dish with waxed paper is an ingenious idea. I took a hint from the recipe on the marshmallow bag and added a teaspoon of vanilla to the melted marshmallows. This takes me back to middle school...
