Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
I love this recipe. If I'm out of chili sauce, I mix ketchup and sriracha to taste- I like it spicy!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
Pretty good. I added more spices to pump up the flavor, and soaked my raisins in advance in warm water.

Three Cheese Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
Great recipe! I sliced the potatoes and boiled them in water, garlic clove, and a cup of heavy milk for about 7 minutes to start the cooking process. It cooked very well. Next time, I'll use white cheddar for a better look and experiment with different toppings. Thanks!

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
I seasoned it with garlic powder, parsley and a couple of tablespoons of honey and it was delicious! BUT, I'm glad I was watching it, as it was falling off the bone and done by 2 hours on high and 1 1/2 hours on low! (I used a 4.8lb chicken) Great recipe idea! Thanks!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
The sauce was great! I used garlic and herb flavored bread crumbs for added oomph and baked the remainder of the meatballs for subs the next day. I think next time I'll stick with baking all but a few of the meatballs in the oven, as I enjoyed the slightly firmer texture those had. Thank you!

Naan

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2008
This is simple for even someone (like me!) who never makes dough recipes for fear of messing up :) When proofing, add a spoonful of sugar to activate the yeast. Also, I brushed the sides with a mixture of melted margarine and garlic powder while cooking. I made it on the stovetop and it bubbled up perfectly and cooked evenly. Thanks for the recipe!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
I also used two cups of white sugar, one cup of brown and added vanilla to the mix. It definitely needs a day to sit, and then is absolutely delicious. I baked in 2 9x5 pans for about 1 hour, 10 minutes and covered with a mix of melted butter, cinnamon, and a lot of powdered sugar cooked on the stovetop.

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2008
This worked rather well with the additions of other readers: Before browning, I seasoned the roast (I used round steak) with flour, garlic salt, pepper, paprika. I added about 1 tbspn of Worcest. sauce, along with about 2 tbspns of minced garlic. I used a 2.75 pound roast, and still had to cut it in half for my small crockpot. It had a little bit of a processed flavor- I think next time I'll use seasonings I have rather than the french onion soup mix. Just a note for everyone confused about timing for smaller roasts- if you use a small sized crockpot it WILL cook faster than 8 hours. Mine was flaking apart and delicious by a little over 6 hours, any more would have made it dry. Thanks for the post!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2008
I added 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1 tsp vanilla along with a brown sugar mixture to the top. It cooked for about 75 minutes total. It's good, but still needs more flavor, and is just really, really heavy. I think I prefer a lighter bread, but for a dense bread, this is pretty good.

S'mores

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2008
Yum! I halved the recipe and used an 8 x 8 pan. Since there was so much talk about the amount of topping, I used about 2 cups for the halved recipe, and only about a 1/2 cup of melted butter. This prevented any greasiness, and I didn't have to prebake the bottom. I did bake it for about 20 minutes, but my oven is a bit outdated anyways :) Overall, yummy for those who like s'mores!

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2008
This was good! I added Worces. sauce while cooking the meat as well, and additional spices: garlic powder, onion powder, red paper flakes. I also used much, much more cheese to the potatoes. I didn't have carrots, but I think their addition plus a can of corn will make this even better next time! Thanks :)

Roasted Turkey Legs

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
Yum. Great, easy recipe. I'm a huge onion fan, so I sliced up a white onion and inserted the pieces into slices throughout the drumsticks. It worked really well. I roasted them for about 45 minutes covered, basting regularly, then uncovered them and turned every 20 minutes afterwards. Total time was about an hour and 45 minutes. Thanks for the post!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
This was a good basic pot pie recipe, very easily manipulated into something to your personal preference. I made extra sauce, put in more onions, creamed corn, a diced potato and added garlic salt, poultry seasoning, and some paprika. I think next time I'll leave out the celery and also bake the chicken, rather than boiling it. That way I can season it well and it won't get terribly dry while boiling. Thanks for the submission and all the reviews and advice! :)

Smooth and Creamy Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2008
This was great! I added more peanut butter and decorated the top with reese's and chocolate sauce. Oh, and my grocery store only had graham cracker crust, so I melted chocolate chips and smoothed it over the crust and hardened it in the fridge before filling.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
This was good, I doubled the sauce and marinated the chicken for 24 hours. I also added some pineapple chunks before baking. This added great flavor, but thinned out the sauce a bit, so I reduced the sauce after the chicken was cooked. Definitely worth it for the amount of ingredients involved, thanks!

Sweet Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
I really, really enjoyed this. I made about triple the amount of sauce (but just one large onion) and I think next time I'll make even more. I used boneless pork chops and cooked for about 45 minutes in a 350 degree oven, basting every 15 minutes and turning once halfway through cooking. Great submission, thank you! Oh, and no raisins for me. Update: EVEN BETTER the next day. Next time I'll marinate the pork in the sauce overnight first.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
This was a good basic recipe.. it wasn't anything special, and I hate to disagree with the other reviewers but I'm not sure it was THAT much different than store bought applesauce. But if you have extra apples, go for it!

Herb Butter

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
Good, I used it under the skin of a turkey.. was too strong for use with just bread, in my opinion.

French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
It just didn't have the depth I wanted out of a french onion soup. It was good, but not what I was looking for.
