Peach Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
Giving this a 5 star rating even though I made changes. The changes were not because of the recipe, but due to lack of ingredients needed. Because of other reviews, I scaled the recipe down to 8 (1/2 recipe) and still made 12 muffins. This is going to sound crazy...but the muffins came out AWESOME! I substituted the oil with melted butter (equal measure). I used cornstarch in place of the eggs (2 Tbsp per egg). I used a 15 oz. can of Lite peaches in pear juice in place of the fresh peaches and I did add some of the juice since the mixture was dry (I didn't measure, just poured). I also subbed 1/2 of the sugar with brown sugar. The muffins came out awesome! Some type of topping would be good but not needed. Definitely a "keeper". Thanks for sharing!

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
We loved this pudding. It was easy to make with ingredients I always have on hand. I made it exactly as directed and it turned out awesome! Will definitely make this again.

Wheat Crackers

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2010
Excellent recipe! I only made 1/2 a batch to try them, but it made lots of crackers. It totally filled a 13 1/2 X 15 1/2 flat baking sheet. I rolled them out right on the baking sheet. Easy to mix, easy to roll and while I think they need a bit more salt, they were excellent! The salt thing is my fault, I usually think store bought crackers have way too much salt on top, so I opted to leave it off. Next time I will either add more salt to the dough or actually sprinkle some on top as the recipe indicates. Will definitely make these again and the field is wide open for lots of different flavors, depending on what you want that day.

Hot Fudge Pudding Cake II

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
This is a good recipe, but very sweet. Not a flavorful sweet, but a Sugar sweet. Does that make sense? Not the one I'm looking for. Also...DEFINETLY use a 9x9 pan as stated!! I only had an 8x8 pan and it overflowed and I'm now cleaning my oven! That is my fault...the recipe says to use a 9x9 pan.

Hot Fudge Ice Cream Bar Dessert

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
Although I haven't prepared this recipe exactly as written, I will give it 5 stars! As a test, before serving to a dinner party, I made a 'one serving' sample using one ice cream sandwich cut in half, (& ingredients on hand...)Hershey's Chocolate Syrup, Smucker's Caramel Syrup, Cool Whip, Heath Toffee Bits. Using my own ingredients, I followed the recipe for assembly. This was AWESOME!! When the 'sample' passed, I chose to make this dessert for my dinner party using the exact ingredients that I used in my sample. It was a HUGE HIT, very rich and very good! I suggest cutting very small pieces OR...next time I make this (and I will make this again!) I might make it a one layer dessert. While two layers are awesome for presentation and makes it a 'bigger' dessert...the top layer seem to slide around when cutting, serving and eating. This dessert is so good and so rich, I believe one layer would be just as good and you wouldn't have the 'slippage' you do with 2 layers. I don't know though...this was just AWESOME prepared as instructed!

Cornbread and Sausage Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
I made a half recipe to test it before taking it to our Thanksgiving Dinner. We loved it! I always make a 9x13 pan of stuffing for Thanksgiving and usually bring home at least half of that. This year I wanted something different from the stuffing we've had every year for the last 42 years! This year was different...I made a 9x13 pan of this recipe and only had 1 small serving left. We nibbled on that while doing the dishes. This is a keeper in our family and will probably be made for the next 42 years LOL.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2008
Simple and yummy! My 4 yo grandson still thinks I'm teasing when I told him Grammy cooked this rice. He thinks I bought it at our favorite mexican restaurant, brought it home and put it in a pan to make everyone think I cooked it! I'll take that as a compliment. :-)

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
These are AWESOME!! The only changes I made were suggestions of other reviewers...I used 3 tsp. salt and 1/2 chicken broth, 1/2 water. I did cook them on low and it took about 12 hours but I was afraid to leave it on high while I was gone because my crock pot cooks a little hot on high. I was concerned about the halved onion...to remove or not to remove...it cooked up really soft and mixed in just fine with the beans (I used a hand mixer). I did end up draining off about 4 cups of 'broth' that I haven't been able to bring myself to throw away (it's really good). I think I will use it in place of the chicken broth in another recipe I'm going to try from this site (Mexican Rice II) and see what happens with that. If it works, I'll make this recipe again and again :-) with the recommended amount of liquid and use the broth in other dishes. If my 'bean broth' idea is a flop, then next time, I will reduce the liquid to 2 cans chicken broth and 2 cans water (about 7 cups). Cooking the beans on high would most likely require 9 cups liquid, but I cooked on low. A word of caution…after smelling these beans cooking, I got a little anxious to taste them and immediately started dipping out of the crock pot after mashing the beans…they are hot and will burn the roof of your mouth LOL…no matter how good they smell, take a moment to blow on that first bite to cool it off LOL.

Ground Beef Curly Noodle

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
I followed this recipe exactly as written and was surprised to find that it was really good. Served with strawberry muffins, we all enjoyed it. It's definitely kid friendly and budget friendly, not to mention quick and easy. It's a keeper in our house.

General Tsao's Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
We all enjoyed this recipe with a few minor changes. I used regular white vinegar because that's all I had and I used a full can of chicken broth no MSG. I also used chicken thighs and added broccoli to the sauce. Next time I may cut down on the sugar a little but we will definitely have this again.

Tortillas I

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2006
As many said, the servings were off, but maybe it's just the 'idea' of a serving that's off. I crave tortillas sometimes and can't always run to the store to buy them. Store bought tortillas are great if I have them, but these were really good. The dough is easy to work with, it rolled out well. The taste was good too. Maybe a touch more salt next time. I did like the fresh taste and the fact that they were quick and easy. I can roll them however thick/thin I want & whatever size I want. The recipe is in my box as a keeper.

Black Beans with Bacon

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2006
I've never had black beans before, but this was good. The carrots were a bit crunchy, I might try matchstick (julienned) carrots next time. The flavor was great and I think even better the next day. I cooked some rice, mixed it in and wrapped it all in a tortilla for lunch the next day. That was awesome except for the 'soggy' bacon. My DS, 13 & very picky, wouldn't even taste it because he doesn't think beans should be black (we usually eat pinto, navy, kidney & green beans) but our rule is "You have to take at least one 'real' bite before you can judge the food--good or bad". I later caught him sneaking a bite, not once, but 3 times!! lol I'll try this recipe again if for no other reason than the fact that I liked it & my DD 4 liked it and it made an awesome lunch the next day! I'm guessing DS13 might even put some on his plate next time.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2006
This was very good and easy too! We couldn't taste the garlic (I used the minced garlic in the little glass jar from the store) but we loved the chicken anyway. I'm a garlic fan and use that garlic all the time with good results, maybe it's because it was the bottom of the jar. Who knows, next time I'll either use fresh garlic or I'll crush it a little with a fork to release the flavor. Maybe I just didn't heat the mixture long enough. Loved the recipe anyway and will definetly be making it again...garlic flavor will only add a star to an already awesome recipe! Thanks Carol! BTW--I was going to give it 4 stars due to the garlic thing, but my VERY finicky 22 yo ate with us and said, "Hey Momma, I forgot you could cook so good." That was the 5th star for me!! If I get it right next time and taste the garlic--It will be a 6 star recipe at my house.

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: May 24, 2006
AWESOME!!!!! I don't know what else to say. I even screwed up the directions and they were so good. I was distracted and mixed all the sauce ingredients along with the chicken (which I had shredded) before setting the 1/4 aside. So we had shredded chicken in the sauce on top too. Oh well, we loved them and will do it right next time! :)
