Jay's Hearty Breakfast Skillet

Reviewed: May 23, 2006
Great recipe. Enough for 6-8. I saved time by microwaving the potatoes. Browned them in the pan AFTER pouring out excess bacon grease. Added a tablespoon of garlic with the vegetables (you can never have enough garlic!). After adding the bacon to the cooked vegetables, I poured eight beaten eggs over the top, covered and cooked on medium-low about 10 minutes until almost firm. Then I topped with sliced tomatoes and grated cheese, and continued to cook, uncovered, until the cheese was melted. Had enough leftovers to serve the next day rolled up in flour tortillas!

Double Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 23, 2006
Oh my!!! These are fantastic. I've made them with all types of ice cream and frozen yogurt - so far, chocolate mint has proven the favorite! When using chocolate ice cream, spread peanut butter on the cookies for a great variation. I accidently burned a batch of the cookies, used them anyway, and they were great - they softened up nicely in the freezer after a day. A 1/2 gallon of ice cream allows for about 1/2 cup per sandwich. Make sure it is soft or you may break the cookies. Since I now keep a constant supply of these in the freezer for a quick dessert, I make them just a bit smaller and get 20 sandwiches out of a recipe (1/3 cup ice cream each). No one except my waist really notices the size difference and my children and husband love me!!!

Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2006
This is now my family's favorite pizza! Like others, I precook my pizza dough 6 minutes, add my toppings, and then finish cooking about 8 more minutes. I find a 9x13 pizza only needs about half the bottle of dressing, with the rest available for dipping. I use about 1 lb of chicken with only about 1 oz of hot sauce (my husband and kids don't have the Cajun gene). Great pizza - thanks for sharing!!!

Greek Vegetarian Pizza

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2006
Most excellent! One of three pizzas I made for Pizza Night. Minor changes: made my own crust and did not pre-cook it; rather than oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, used dehydrated ones plumped in hot water; added sliced black olives and diced marinated artichoke hearts; sprinkled with 6 oz of mozzarella (just the feta seemed a bit light to me); skipped the oil/Parmesan cheese (actually forgot it; didn't seem a loss). Rave reviews from adult guests (young kids preferred the pepperoni; teenagers liked the Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza the best). Will be making this again in the near future. Thanks for the recipe!

Easy No Bake Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2006
I found this recipe on a day when it was 100 degrees and our air conditioner was broken - "no bake" seemed like a good idea, and it was! Like others, I decreased the sugar to 1 cup and boiled the mixture for 3 minutes. Also, I store them in the refrigerator - they are very refreshing that way. I've made them with chocolate, butterscotch, lemon and pistachio pudding. All were great, but the pistachio were a green/gray color - next time I'll add green food color.

Dee's Roast Pork for Tacos

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2006
Wonderful! I've made this several time, both wrapped in foil and in the slow cooker. I like to freeze it in smaller portions for sandwiches. My whole family loves this recipe. Thanks so much!! Makes great enchilada, using the sauce from this recipe: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/enchilada-style-burritos/detail.aspx

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2006
So easy and delicious. As did others, I added Worchestershire sauce, mushrooms and garlic, and used just one can of soup and half a can of water. Made plenty of gravy (the first time I made it, I followed the recipe and ended up swimming in gravy).

Hot Fudge Ice Cream Bar Dessert

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2006
Wow! This is ridiculously simple and delicious. Rave reviews from all my guests. I used Jiffy extra-crunchy peanut butter and omitted the peanuts. 24 Publix brand ice cream sandwiches fitted my pan perfectly. Make sure you use a deep lasagna pan and place it on a cookie sheet to catch any drips. STRONGLY recommend freezing over night.

Cucumber Sandwich

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2006
Oh my goodness! This may be the best sandwich I have ever had. I followed the recipe exactly. Everyone loved it, although my 15 year old decided she could pass on the alfalfa. Next time I'll try it on a croissant and maybe sneak in a little roast beef if no one is looking!!

Moist Banana Raisin Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2006
What a great recipe! A good use of that last, lonely banana.... Instead of adding peanuts, I just used cruchy peanut butter. The first time I made this bread, I used raisins. Very good. The second time, I substituted chocolate chips. A whole new experience! Kinda like peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, only better for you.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2006
We really enjoy these. I find 1 cup of milk to be too much - start with 3/4 cup and add more as needed. I get 4 - 6 biscuits out of this recipe.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2006
Wow! These are great! I took the advise of others and rolled them out on an oiled surface instead of floured - worked so well! Also, I formed them the night before and covered the pan with plastic wrap. Next morning, allowed them to warm up to room temperature for about 45 minutes and then baked them. Terrific! Guess what we will be having next Christmas morning....

Turkey Taco Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2006
A big hit with my family, including the teenagers. As suggested by others, browned turkey with taco seasoning and garlic salt, substituted chickpeas for kidney beans, salsa for taco sauce, and skipped the pickles. Since everyone was hungry, I only allowed the turkey mixture to cool about 20 minutes. I didn't mix in the lettuce until just before we ate. For the four of us, I halved the recipe but used 1.3lb turkey meat (that was the smallest package at our grocery store!). Needless to say, we had plenty, but with my husband and son, not too much.... We will be enjoying this recipe for years to come. Thank you!

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2006
This was a real hit with adults and children. Followed suggestions of others by adding taco seasoning to browning meat, using medium taco sauce and skipping the canned green chili, using one pack of large tortilla shells, and cooking in a greased 9x13. This would be a great dish for a pot luck.

Simple Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2006
This was good, but not great. The spinach flavor was a bit more pronounced than I expected - the six-year-old bravely ate half of his serving before I took pity on him. However, the flavor had mellowed nicely the next day when I heated the leftovers. Oh, and I found that I needed to use all of a 16oz box of noodles.

Pasta Salad with Shrimp and Basil

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
This is delightful. I prepared it the night before and served it for a luncheon. For four people I halved everything except for the shrimp, served it up on a bed of lettuce, and still had some leftovers. "Soft Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks" submitted by Andi Flanagan on this website complimented the salad very nicely.

Soft Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
These are loved and adored in our home. Wonderful flavor - I think fresh garlic is a key. Also, I had better result just sprinkling on (generously) the grated cheese for the "green can" rather than using freshly grated cheese (it browned up a bit too much - maybe just use it for the broil step). I prepare the dough in my bread machine set on "manual" and use Bread Machine Yeast. After I shape them, I lay them out on the pan so that, when they rise, they touch each other. I think that may be why mine have always stayed soft. In my oven, they are done after 15 minutes, so I suggest you start keeping an eye on them around 12. Also, I skip the last broil step, just opting to slather on some more melted butter and serving them up.

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
I am soooo happy to have found this recipe. I've never been able to duplicate the dressing at my favorite pizza place and now I can! Using the automatic scaling feature I scale it down to 10 servings. Depending on what is in my cupboard, I have successfully substituted apple cider and/or balsamic vinegar for red wine vinegar.

Dirt Cake II

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
This is a great fun dessert. It may not be the greatest culinary delight of your life, but it will earn you giggles from everyone. Make the night before so it is good and cold. I put the worms in before sprinkling the crumbs on top so it looked more like they were burrowing. I made this to delight the kids - the fact that it tastes great is an added bonus!!!
