Quick Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2006
I followed this recipe exactly and was very disappointed with the outcome. I agree with the other person who said they were so peanut buttery she had to drink a whole glass of water after eating one. Eating one of these cookies was the equivalent to eating a spoon of peanut butter!!! They were also dry and crumbly.. I won't make this recipe again. I am a peanut butter cookie connoisseur and would much rather take a little extra time and make a cookie that tastes great..

Grandpa's Classic Coney Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
This was not great to me. I was very hopeful based on the reviews but my kids didn't care for it and neither did I. I will not be making this recipe again. I am not sure if it was the celery seed or the mustard but the flavors didn't mesh well for me. I agree with other reviewers in that it tasted very similar to sloppy joes but I just didn't care for this recipe. I made the recipe exactly as written. Thanks anyway, different strokes for different folks! :)

Awesome Roast Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
I loved this recipe and so did my kids! I made it exactly as written except I seasoned my meat with onion powder, garlic powder and pepper and I mixed the cream of mushroom soup and beef broth up in a bowl before pouring it over the roast. This was the best roast I have ever made! It was very moist, tender and flavorful! Thanks for a great recipe.

Specials

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2007
I made this recipe but substituted a combo of onion salt and onion powder for the onion (because my kids don't like onion) and used cheddar jack cheese (because that's what I had on hand). It was very delicious. The burgers were very juicy with a hint of cheese melted in them. I will make it again. My daughter didn't think it tasted any different from my regular burgers but I could tell the difference in the juiciness and even a slight hint of cheese taste and she ate over half of her burger this time which is unusual for her.

Marinated Spicy Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
Delish! I decreased the soy sauce to 1/4 cup and added 1/4 cup of worcestershire sauce. Couldn't locate my chili sauce so I used dried crushed red pepper and cayenne pepper. Also used extra brown sugar and added a few squirts of dijon mustard as well as ginger powder, onion powder, chili powder. I used boneless pork chops and marinated it for about 3 hours and then broiled it for 5 minutes on each side. It turned out delicious! I also took the marinade and boiled it and added cornstarch to make a thick sauce to dip the meat in. Yummy!!

Oven Roasted Parmesan Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2013
These were amazing!! I used white potatoes, sprayed the cookie sheet with cooking spray, put one tablespoon of cooking oil on the cookie sheet, sliced my potatoes (I used 4 potatoes) in quarter slices, drizzled them with the cooking oil, and then instead of tossing the seasoning/cheese mix with them in the bowl, I spooned a about a 1/2 teaspoon of the mixture directly on the cut side of the potato and spread it around before placing them cut side down on the cookie sheet. For me this was a lot easier and ensured that they had a nice thick coating on them because when I tried tossing it with them in the bowl the mixture didn't stick well. I roasted them in the oven at 400 for 20 minutes and flipped them and cooked them for another 15 minutes. They turned out beautifully browned and crispy and soft and delicious on the inside. Next time I will decrease the salt a bit because they were a tad bit too salty but the sour cream that we dipped them in helped out with that problem. Oh and I also doubled the seasoning/cheese mixture since the amount in the recipe was not enough probably since my potatoes were quartered instead of just cut in half. I will make this recipe again and again. My kids loved them and my son was disappointed when he saw that there weren't any leftovers. Thank you for a wonderful recipe Bellepepper!! :)

Sauteed Cherry Tomatoes with Garlic and Basil

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
Can you say delicious!?? I made this recipe using grape tomatoes and since I was short on time I used garlic powder instead of minced garlic cloves. I added a little salt and pepper and a little onion powder. I cut my grape tomatoes in half and sauteed them in the olive oil. I didn't have any fresh basil so I didn't stir in basil or extra olive oil, I just ate them straight from the pan and they were delicious! I ate them with a sauteed chicken breast that I cooked in the same pan. I can't wait to try them again with the fresh basil. Thank you for a wonderul and healthy recipe!

Easy Honey Mustard Mozzarella Chicken

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
I really enjoyed this recipe! I cooked 6 slices of bacon in the oven, drained the slices and crumbled them when cool and set aside. I used 4 very thin boneless chicken breast halves. I only had a 1/2 a cup of honey so that is what I used with 1/2 a cup of prepared regular yellow mustard and I also added a few squirts of store bought honey mustard to the mixture. I spooned the mixture over the chicken breasts, sprinkled them with lemon pepper and put them in the oven at 375 for 15 minutes then I took them out, turned them over put more of the honey mustard mixture over them and put them back in the oven for another 10 minutes and then took them out and turned them over again and put more sauce over them with more lemon pepper and baked them for another 5 minutes. I then took them out and topped them with the crumbled, cooked bacon I had prepared ahead of time and with the shredded mozzarella cheese and put them back in the oven for another 10 minutes. They were delicious!! My daughter didn't care for them because she thought they were too sweet but I really enjoyed this recipe.

Scottish Shortbread II

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
I made this recipe using Imperial margarine in place of butter because that is what I had. Overall it was very good! I will make this recipe again. My kids and their friends enjoyed it! I mixed the dough together with my hands and pressed it into a buttered pie plate, pricked holes in the top with a fork and baked it for about 35 minutes total at 350 degrees. I think next time I will use a bigger dish to press the dough in so that it will be thinner and more crisp as a result. Mine was not cooked in the center despite putting it back in the oven twice, maybe this is because I used margarine instead of butter? I sprinkled sugar over the top after it was done cooking. I will use this recipe again and try it with butter and maybe a little more sugar and some vanilla flavoring.

Buckeye Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
Delicious! I used Imperial Margarine instead of butter because that is what I had on hand. I used 3 1/2 cups of confectioners sugar and I just realized while writing this that I somehow missed the 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract but don't feel that it needed it because they were delicious without it. I softened the margarine a bit in the microwave before mixing it with the sugar and peanut butter and it all mixed together well. It was firm so I found it easier to mix it all together with my hands, kneeding it like dough. Immediately after mixing it, I rolled it into 1 inch balls and placed them on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper then put them in the fridge for 1 hour. I used Nestle milk chocolate morsels instead of semisweet and I used my double boiler to melt the chocolate chips and shortening and stuck a toothpick in the balls and dipped them in the chocolate. It was a bit of a pain to get rid of the holes the toothpicks made but all in all this was a very easy recipe and the end results were excellent! I didn't have any problems with my balls crumbling or falling apart. My daughter said they taste like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups only way better!! Thank you for this wonderful recipe! :)

Sheryl's Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2011
I made this recipe using very small potatoes because that was all that I had. I sliced the potatoes thinner than in the first picture, and sprinkled them with salt, pepper, a no salt seasoning blend, a little seasoning salt, onion powder and garlic powder and then drizzled them with butter. I baked them 10 minutes less than the recipe called for because they were so small. After baking them for 40 minutes, I took t hem from the oven and sprinkled them with parmesan cheese only because I was out of cheddar cheese and baked them again for another 10 minutes. They were very good but I only wish that the seasonings, butter and cheese had gotten more into the cracks because the inside of the potato was lacking flavor. I will make this recipe again and next time try to fan the potatoes out more maybe by cutting them a little deeper so that the butter, cheese and spices can get inside of the potato.

Blackened Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
I made this recipe almost exactly as written with the exception of cutting the cayenne pepper in 1/2 and I didn't add the white pepper or dried basil because I didn't have any. I also added a little bit of garlic powder and chili powder. I brushed the butter on my fillets on one side and sprinkled the seasoning and melted a little butter in a skillet on medium high heat and placed the fillets in the skillet to cook seasoning side down for 4 minutes. While they were cooking, I brushed them with the butter and sprinkled them with the seasoning and flipped them after the 4 minutes. This fish was very delicious! My daughter doesn't like fish at all and she ate a whole fillet and said she wants me to make it again! I served it with rice pilaf and sweet potatoes with brown sugar and butter. It was a very delicious combination of spicy, sweet and savory. I will start using this as my go-to recipe for salmon from now on.

Mom's Best Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2012
I made these pork chops tonight for dinner and they were fabulous! I used five boneless center cut pork chops that were about an inch thick and followed the recipe exactly. I used a rolling pin to crush the saltines finely and I added a little salt, garlic powder, onion powder and pepper to the crushed saltines. I also added the garlic powder and onion powder to the beaten eggs as well. I ended up having to use a little more than 3 tbsp of oil when browning them and I only baked them in the oven for 20 minutes. They were perfectly juicy, moist on the inside and crispy on the outside. This will be my fried pork chop recipe from now on. I had them with the balsamic glazed carrots (also from this site), lima beans and fettucinne pasta.

Way Easy Pizza Sauce/Bread Stick Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
Delish! I followed the recipe with exception that I added 1 teaspoon of sugar instead of 1/4 teaspoon and I didn't have a garlic clove so I used garlic powder instead of minced garlic. I also didn't have any minced fresh parsley so I omitted that. This was delish! I was making homemade pizza and realized I that the jar sauce I usually use had gone bad so I used this recipe. Two thumbs up from my kids and I. We used it to dip garlic toast in while waiting for the pizza's to cook and it was so yummy!!! Thank you for a wonderful and easy recipe. I will no longer buy jarred pizza sauce!

Oven Fried Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
I made this recipe using thin boneless chicken breasts that I cut into tenders because my daughter prefers tenders. I put the garlic and the butter in a dish and microwaved them together to melt the butter, this made the butter more garlic flavored. I also used italian bread crumbs so I only added a little salt and pepper and no parsley since the breadcrumbs already had dried parsley in them and I mixed in the shredded parmesan cheese. I cooked it at 350 for 35 minutes and for the last few minutes I turned on the broiler to try to crisp it up a bit. This chicken turned out ok but wasn't anything special. The flavor was pretty good but the bread crumbs were kind of powdery like and not really crispy. I was hoping this would be a good subsitition for the fried chicken tenders I make that my kids love but unfortunately it didn't fit the bill. I gave it four stars because it wasn't bad at all just not as wonderful as a lot of the reviews led me to believe. It was good for a quick dinner which is what I needed because I was short on time.

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
I really enjoyed this lemonade recipe! I followed the recipe exactly as written but I only had 4 lemons which only produced about a half of a cup of lemon juice so I had to substitute with Real Lemon. It was still very delicious and I will make it again and again.

Oven Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
I really enjoyed this recipe. I have made it many times following the recipe exactly and it is great as is. Last night I made it to go with Maxwell St. style polish sausage sandwiches and I tweaked the recipe a bit and I actually enjoyed it more than before. I used 2 sweet potatoes, 4 russet potatoes, 2 teaspoons of olive oil, a good sprinkle of Lawry's seasoning salt, 1 tablespoon of white sugar, a nice sprinkle of cayenne pepper, put them on a cookie sheet coated with canola cooking spray, baked them at 450 for about 20 minutes, flipped them and baked them another 20 minutes, when I took them out to flip them I sprinkled them with kosher salt. They were delicious! I actually enjoyed the sweet potato fries more than I did the russet potatoes and so did my kids who usually don't like sweet potato fries. Yum! Thank you for a wonderful recipe that can be used as is or modified to your individual tastes.

Giant Crisp Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
I made this recipe exactly as written and I didn't care for this recipe. When the cookies cooled they were hard. My 13 year old daughter said they tasted like sugar cookies with chocolate chips and I am going to have to agree with her. They didn't taste like any chocolate chip cookies I have ever tasted. I'm sorry but I won't be making this recipe again.

Ashley's Chicken Katsu with Tonkatsu Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
I made the Tonkatsu sauce from this recipe and another Chicken Katsu recipe from this site. The sauce had an unusual taste that kind of grew on me. I am not sure that I would make it again. Surprisingly though my 18 year old son liked the sauce. If I do make it again I may use the suggestion of other reviewers and add some brown sugar and maybe a little less Worcestershire sauce. I could taste the Worcestershire sauce a bit too much.
