Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
I changed it by using 1 lb ground beef, 1 lb hot turkey sausage, 1 lb mild Italian sausage, and used real bacon. I couldnt find the 1 can of hot chili beans so I just substituted with 1 can of kidney beans. I also messed up a ton and forgot the beef bouilion, and the spicy green peppers! But even with all these crazy alterations it somehow still turned out great and everyone still raved about it!

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2008
I think this is good but just too fancy for my family. I think I will stick with non-fruit stuffings in the future.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2008
This recipe is almost identical to the quaker oats recipe so I am not sure what all the fuss is about. To be honest with my end results I can't tell the difference between the two recipes except for maybe the addition of the cloves in this one. But anyway, it is a good recipe. If you have tried the quaker recipe and like that one you will most likely like this one too.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2008
I have made this several times and always have great results. Usually I decrease oil to 1/2 cup and add 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce. Also, I decrease the sugar to 2 cups and can't tell the difference from when I used the full 3 cups of sugar. It is plenty sweet enough with just 2 cups of sugar for me and my family.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2008
This was a tasty recipe and so super easy it definitely deserves a high rating. However, the dumplings are hard to get right. The refrigerator biscuits don't work that well even when cut into thin strips. I think the next time I try this recipe it will be worth it to try the more traditional drop biscuit dough using bisquick mix and just forget using the refrigerated biscuit dough altogether.

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
I guess I am in the very small minority of people who did not like this pie. I followed the recipe exactly and I ended up with a pie that was too tart and the sauce was too runny. If I were to make it again I would use some of the suggestions that others have made. I would mix 1/2 Granny smith with 1/2 other sweeter apples; I would add cinnamon to the sauce mixture; and instead of pouring all the sauce over the top I would incorporate some of the sauce to apples themselves. In addition, 8 apples was just too much (maybe that is why my sauce was too runny) 6 would probably do just fine. I will say though that I did use a pie crust from this site "Ruth's Grandma's pie crust" and that was absolutely delicious. Because of all the positive reviews I may give this a try again in the future... but my first attempt sure was a disaster!

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
I am giving these 5 stars because they are great for kids, tasty and moist and really easy to make! I used others advice and cut back on the butter and replaced the difference with applesauce. I also froze my mini muffins in tiny zip lock snack bags (like "cookin mommi" suggested) so I can pop in my kids lunch bags for school snack.... because the mini muffins do thaw by snack time - which is soooooo great! And my kids just love them!

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: May 29, 2007
Who knew making falafel could be so easy! My falafels stayed together nicely and the flavor was good. Next time though I will cut back a little on the salt and parsley, and definitely cut back on the amount of oil. Or maybe I will bake them in the oven as others have suggested. It was just too greasy cooked in an inch of oil. As for the sauce, I really liked the mild cool cucumber flavor. My husband however missed the tahini sauce often served with falafel. I will definitely make again... I will just have to make a few minor modifications and I may even try adding a little tahini to the cucumber sauce.

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: May 16, 2007
Great flaky crust! My husband is quite picky when it comes to pie crusts but this one he had nothing but good things to say about it. This will be the recipe I use from now on! Thank you!

Chewy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
Okay, I have tried a ton of granola bar recipes lately. And like the many other recipes I have tried this one fell apart and crumbled too much. However, the taste was good and I think with a little tweaking it may have a lot of potential. It may not be the healthiest bar recipe but at least we will probably eat all of these where as the others I have tried just went to the trash can. If I try it again I will mix the wet ingedients in a sauce pan and then add it too the oat mixture just to combine the ingredients better. The softened butter just didn't incorporate well with the oats as written. I will also consider adding more honey or maybe an egg white to hold it together better.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
This recipe is one of my husband's and kids favorite. They gobble it up each time I make it. To vary it a bit I sometimes substitute italian sausage for the ground beef ... but both are good! I too think it is best when the pasta layer is mixed with a little of the sauce. It does make a lot so if you are not good at eating leftovers you may one to cut the recipe in half.

Cranberry Chicken I

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2006
I have tried this recipe a couple times and I am a little unsure about it. It definitely gets points from me because of how easy it is to prepare. I think it was better with whole cranberry sauce. I also cut back on the onion soup mix to 1 package, which was more than enough. My husband liked it but my kids didn't care for it much. I liked the cranberry flavor and think it has potential. If I try it again I may try adding orange zest and cutting back on the onion soup even more. With the cranberry and french dressing though it does have quite a high sugar content!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2006
I thought these were fantastic. I liked them because they were light and fluffy and a nice change from the usual dense banana bread I would usually make with overly rippened bananas.

Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: May 25, 2006
Excellent! My husband preferred this recipe over our favorite BBQ joint. I used pork instead of beef and used 3/4 cup of our favorite BBQ sauce with 3/4 cup ketchup (since some reviews complained of too much of a ketchup flavor). I did cut out all the fat that I could from the meat before putting it in the slow cooker. I did not have any problems with my sauce being greasy. My husband can't stop raving about how good it tastes. These are leftovers that will definitely not be going to waste!

Cream Cheese Pie

Reviewed: May 11, 2006
My family and I have been making a similar recipe ever since I was a child. The main difference to our recipe is that we add 1 teaspoon of lemon juice or lemon zest to the cream cheese mixture. We love it and bake several each Christmas. To answer a previous reviewer's question: this is how my family bakes it - after baking cream cheese layer let it cool slightly, then top with sourcream mixture and bake again for 5 minutes. Remove from oven, cool and for best results let it refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours. We think it is best when served cold or room temperature.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: May 11, 2006
Amazing cookies! I followed the recipe exactly. The second time I made these I used a 1/4 cup ice cream scoop to scoop out the cookie dough and it worked even better. I have used the "Award Winning CC Cookie" recipe from this site and thought those were good. But this recipe far surpases that one in my mind. Thanks for the recipe Elizabeth!
