Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
I dont normally crave pancakes but this morning i did and of course was out of box mix, so when i found this recipe and thankfully had all the ingredients i got to cooking. Simple, fast, and delicious!! Im sitting here staring at my last 1/4 of 2 stacked pancakes trying to eat it because they're so good, but im incredibly full!! It's a keeper and goes in my binder! Thank you!

Granola Bars III

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2010
I will give this recipe 5 stars even though i tweaked it a bit because of my liking and forgetfulness because this recipe is really versatile so anyone can mold this into their favorite recipe. My first personal mistake was forgetting the oats. I have cinnamon raisin granola on hand so thats what i used. Instead of raisins i used blueberry craisins(a plus for this recipe!), my store didnt have wheat germ so i just skipped that all together, and lastely i used coctail peanuts with sea salt because we dont like walnuts. I baked it on a 11x13 baking sheet(with a edge to it) and to keep the thickness i wanted i had about 3 1/2 inches left on one side. That empty space spread that edge thinner and made that very edge crunchy(not a big deal, thats what i munched on while packing these up). Overall this is a very good recipe considering my substitutions. My 4 and 1 year old kept wanting more and more! Thanks for this recipe. Oh and i'll mention that i guesstimated on the brown sugar part which was ABOUT 2/3 cups and it wasn't too sweet at all, just right.

Pecan Praline Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
How disappointing! The only thing i did differently was use ritz crackers instead of graham. I ended up with a big gooey mess :( The flavor was good but there was no way i was getting them out of the pan. My husband used a spoon to scoop out the goo. Did i miss a step in the boiling process? This recipe has potential but i dont know how i for once screwed up. I dont think i will be making this again.

Never Fail Biscuits

Reviewed: May 19, 2010
These were actually the best biscuits i've made. I only gave them a 4 instead of a 5 cause it seemed to be lacking something, not sure what, but being that i topped them with gravy for breakfast they were awesome. It made 9 biscuits for me that i cut out with a drinking glass. I baked them for 3 minutes longer than the recipe said just for extra browness to suit my liking. Overall, this gets put in my binder and the old recipe gets tossed out. TY!

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
I used a 8lb. Smithfield ham for this. Used very little ground cloves, about 1/4 cup dark corn syrup, 1/2 brown sugar, 8tbsps butter and about 1/4 cup honey. I baked in the oven for about 5 hours with a lid on at 325. I basted as often as i coculd remember and by hour 5 the Ham was so soft and tender! Flavor wise was good! Not too sweet and just the right amount of saltyness from the ham. Will be keeping this recipe!

Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Onions

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
I cook alot but had yet to actually taste sweet potatoes. They were just one of those things i never tried but always wanted to. I didn't use the amaretto or almonds in my recipe. I personally thought they turned out pretty good! Husband said the potatoes took on too much of the onion flavor and he was used to a more sweeter sweet potato. Kids weren't a big fan, but kids are kids right? Thats not to say they werent good. Overall good recipe, but im left wondering what the amaretto would of done to them.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
This recipe was good. I wouldn't call it "world's best" but pretty good, probably the best i've made before. i think the only thing i did differently was avoid the fennel seeds, and only because i didnt have any on hand. I did like how the lasagna kept together like it should! I ended up using the ricotta mxture, mozzarella shredded cheese(out of a package), fresh mozzarella balls(bocconcini i believe), and fresh parmesan. I think the thing that kept it from being excellent for me might have been the noodles(my fault). I did use a off brand noodle so the texture of them was weird. I par-boiled my noodles and let them finish cooking in the oven. So i do suggest not using off brand and stick with a good brand you know and like. Overall this is a keeper recipe for me!

MMMMM... Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
Very good brownies!! They were very easy to make and turned out better than i expected since they were so easy. I only had 1/2 cup choc. chips on hand, so i chopped up 3 sqaures of bitter sweet chocolate and they worked just fine. And yes! temper the eggs!!! I'm not big into brownies, but have since eaten 3! When i asked my husband if they were good, he said MMMMmm Hmmmm!

Spinach Bacon Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2008
This was my first attempt at ever making a quiche. I made it for my mommy friends coming over for a playdate. They LOVED it! As did i! Funny thing is that i dont even like spinach. I am a very picky eater, so i for sure didnt think i would like this but turns out im the one eating most of it. Even a 4 yr old from the playdate loved this. I did make a few minor changes: I used sausage links cut up instead of bacon(approx.8), i grated my onion and cooked it with the sausage, i cut the milk down to 1 1/2 cups only, i cooked my spinach in butter until hot, and i omitted the mustard completely and lastly, its good to know that this recipe makes-2- pies. It could easily make 1 deep dish though. Overall this was great! I will for sure be making this again! Thanks!

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
I made these last night. I followed the exact directions, except i made them in a regular sized cupcake pan. As i was making the second batch, looked at the back of the package of peanut butter cups and there was this recipe! They are called Peanut Butter Temptations!! Everything is exact(including some wordng) except for i think the flour measurements and the time, which the time on the bag works better. Overall they were really good and easy cookies, and i will be making them again!!

Yeast Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2007
WOW! These were delicious! The only thing i did different was that I used 1 package of yeast because that was all I had. Worked out fine. I used a laddle to measure the size of all the pancakes. I ended up having extra batter. Theres only 2 adults and 2 kids, so 5 pancakes and 1 baby one was enough. Maybe next time I'll cut the recipe in half. Thank you sooo much for the recipe. It's going in my recipe book, its a keeper!!

Blueberry Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2007
These really were great, but not the type of muffins i was looking for. It was more dense and almost bread like, instead of moist. My son is scarffing them down as i'm typing, as a matter of fact hes licking his plate. Like i said, they really were yummy, just not what i expected. I did have to add more milk because it just would of been way too thick. It made 12 muffins perfectly. Could of used a little more strusel topping but that was fine. Over all good!

Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2007
As for this recipe i wasnt to fond of it. My husband and four year old did like it though. Maybe not creamy enough or not cheesy enough for me but it lacked something. Toward the end i put it in a baking dish with bread crumbs on top but it still didnt do anything for the flavor of it. Maybe i'd skip the evaporated milk and use real milk next time and maybe use a different cheese.

Meatloaf that Doesn't Crumble

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2007
Me and my husband absolutely loved this recipe! This was my second attempt at making meatloaf and it was a success!! I think the only thing i did different was that i grated the onion, bell pepper, and celery. I dont have a food processor, and i dont like to bite into the pieces of vegetables, so i grated them instead. I also used just ground beef, and i think i made more than 2 pounds because it didnt fit in my loaf pan. Luckily i had a larger aluminum one that it fit perfect in. I also had to increase cooking time because mine wasnt done in 1 1/2 hours. This recipe is definately a keeper!

Maple Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2007
This was an o.k. recipe. I needed a quick recipe since i planned on making pancakes and found i didnt have any mix. Very simple to make but a little more dense than i would of liked. A little syrup on them and they taste like every other pancake out there. Over all o.k., Thanks

Campfire Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2007
I think this was a good recipe, but they were a little bland. I tried them for the first time last night, and they were o.k. You do get the taste of the worstershire sauce and alot of the onion flavor but it really lacked salt or a little something extra. I think if i try this again i might just go with different seasonings, but stick with the chicken broth and maybe do half an onion. But if you are an onion lover for for a whole onion!
