Peanut Butter Chip Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: May 31, 2014
Good (I believe) as written. As always I tinkered w/original. Sub 1/2 C oatmeal flour for 1/2 of ap flour, added 1/2 c peanuts, increased salt to 3/4 t, increased vanilla to 1T. Dirtbiking boys and dads approved. I agree with other positive reviewers that the basic chocolate dough is very well balanced and suitable to infinite variation.

Balsamic Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2013
This is awesome, although I agree with many other reviewers; either pre-cook the carrots or be prepared have to cook them in the oil a lot longer than 10 minutes. I like them parboiled in a 1/4 c of water, with 1t ea dried parsley and rosemary. The herbs stick when the carrots are drained and compliment the flavors of balsamic vinegar and sugar. Shallots sauteed in the olive oil added before that sugar, are nice too, if you have them.

Mom's Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
Lovely recipe. 'Using cavatappi (spiral maccaroni) pasta & bone-in, skin on, thighs cuz it's what I have on hand. I've substituted 2 stalks of sliced celery for the bell pepper, and simmered the mushrooms for the whole 40 min.,out of consideration to my finickey 10 y.o. Sauce is beautifully balanced thanks to the many reviewers notes about thorough browning. No wine, used a 1/4 c of rice wine vinegar in 1/2 c chicken stock. Tangy and complex. Thankx Mom.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
Whoa! these were so simple to make using the melted butter step, AND they had wonderful flavor, very nice texture; a generally excellent chocolate chip batch! I cut the quantity in half, because my guys are princesses who won't eat a three-day old cookie, and I substituted a tablespoon of stevia power for the white sugar. STILL a great cookie! LOVE this recipe!

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
Thank you for sharing this recipe. It would seem that Idaho has been out of the loop on this dessert. 'First time anybody in my fam has encountered cake balls. My first batch went to my son's AWANA Happy B'Day Jesus party and not a single ball made it back alive. Even my dessert-wary husband loves them. I'll be taking another batch, made with Nutella instead of canned frosting, to my MIL's for Christmas. Thanks so much.

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
I've reviewed Aunt Teen's fudge before. But I have to pay homage once more. It is the most dependable, rewarding fudge recipe I've ever used. Cooking the marshmallow creme makes a much richer, more finished taste, less raw than fudge made by adding marshmallow creme after cooking the sugar and evaporated milk. Moreover, from this recipe was born my own embarrassingly well received Maple Walnut fudge. To make it, substitute white chocolate chips for milk and semi sweet chocolate chips, substitute dark brown sugar for white sugar, increase the salt to 1/2 t. Add a T or so of Mapleine (imitation maple flavoring, or other maple essence of your choice) instead of vanilla. Add a cup of chopped walnuts. It is to die for if I do say so myself.

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
These mixes were a blessing to my Christmas season in so many ways: inexpensive and satisfying to assemble and give, beautiful in their jars on my counter decorated ready to be given, delicious baked, flattering when the rave reviews poured in after they were received and eaten...I can't praise them too highly. I'm gathering jars and formatting the recipe labels for this Christmas. It gives me a rich feeling just knowing I have this gift already picked out for so many on my list.

Sour Cream Apple Pie Deluxe

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2011
Wicked good! Used a little Pecan Maple granola in the and 1 c chopped walnuts in the crumb topping with 1/2 t of ginger, a dash of clove, and 1 t of cinnamon. Spiked the sour cream mix with another 1/2 t of nutmeg & pored over 1 c golden raisins and 4 c of chunked Granny Smiths. I hate it when I love my own cooking this much. It's just not modest, but this pie, even while it is still warm, is fabulous. I love whoever it was that originally posted this one. 'Can't wait to take one to church for Sunday-before-Thanksgiving feast. I will OWN all my sister-in-Christ's dessert contributions. It's wrong for me to look forward to that, I know, but...

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
Amazing, I would never have expected this to be so popular with my finicky family. Aside from substituting Elk cut into the 1/4 x 2 inch strips, marinated for 1 hour in a 4/1 water-balsamic vinegar, 1T sugar, dried thyme, bay leaf mixture I would not dare change anything. Mustard who would EVER have thought that could make such a tasty difference. Thanks Donna, your recipe has helped me immeasurably.

Love Soup Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
This will be a part of our gift giving again this Christmas. I customised it for my husband's men's bible study partners last year and remained it Brotherly Love soup. It made a great gift. Try processing dried tomatos with the seasoning in a food processor. The resulting seasoning mix can be pressed into a circular cake and used as a layer in the jar. This year I plan to further modify the seasoning mix to include freeze-dried refried beans and "tex/mex-ify" the herb blend. I'll add dehydrated corn and black beans to the dried lentils etc. My hope is to turn out a southwest chili-style version and rename the outcome Sopa Agape Noche Buena (Holy night brotherly love soup) or something like that.

Cranberry Streusel Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
Top notch! Even my husband who doesn't approve of high-calorie desserts succumbe to this pie. I cut the sugar in half, substituting a 1/8 of a cut of Nu-Stevia, in both the cranberry filling and the steusel topping. Used pecans instead of walnuts. This is a KEEPER!

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
I love this recipe. Of course, I have messed with it, and will continue to do so. In general however it's good as it is. If you are shooting for greater healthiness, replace the oil with applesauce, and use 20 drops of stevia extract to replace 1 c of sugar. Still bakes up moist and dense, without the extra fat and sugar. If you are a lover of spicy gingerbread increase the ginger to 1 1/2 T and cinnamon up to 1/4 c, add more nutmeg and clove, also a shot of coriander, a bit of mace. As some other reviewers have suggested it can hardly be gingerbread without subbing in molasses for some of the sugar. I've done so with good results, although as long as you use brown sugar the difference is negligible. I plan to try it with a 2/3 c of Chai tea instead of the water this time. Baking time warning, using two loaf pans, it takes much longer to bake than the instruction suggest, almost an hour and a half. Maybe this is just an indictment of my oven's calibration.

Michell Jenny's Challah

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
A wonderful dough; I confess I subverted it to the making of sweet rolls pinwheeled with raisins and nuts, cinnamon and brown sugar. It performed beautifully as a vehicle for all that tinkering. Thank you! Next time I'll restore it to its proper function as a braided loaf. 'Soon!

Easy Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
As published, it's a 4 star recipe, pretty good & ridiculously easy. Once the numerous reviewer recommendations are incorporated, it's a 5+ star delight. What I did: coarsely shredded rind of 1 lemon added to crust mixture. 1/4 c sliced almonds added to reserved top crust mixture. Combined 1/4 c fresh lemon juice w/ low fat cream cheese, 4 oz tub of lemon yogurt, 11 drops of NuStevia extract to filling. Bake as directed.

Sweet Sausage 'n' Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
Long ago I had a check-out paperback crock pot cookbook. There was a version of this in it which was truly the best...but this is not bad at all. Cut the sugar, add cubed ham and/or bacon lightly fried. Pre-cook whole baby carrots. Cook this in the crockpot for a nice change of pace. Makes a fine summer meal with a salad, since it doesn't require much heat in the kitchen.

Asparagus and Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
Quite good. Tends to be a little too bland, but it has lovely textures. The fresh asparagus stayed crisp even after the 40 minutes it took for the breast meat to be cooked through. 'Thinking it will be better with more cheese than the 1/4 cup called for and possibly a little something creamy spread over the asparagus before cooking. 'Even a good quality Ranch dressing might work.
