Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
First of all, I read most of the reviews, the good and bad. I read how people said it was basically the same recipe off the Quaker box, so I figured it would be fool proof. To me, the success of a recipe depends on how fool proof it is. This was my first time making oatmeal cookies, but I was short a few ingredients and had to do a couple of substitutions. I felt there wasn't a lot of spice or even sweetness. It was a little bit bland for me. I'm not ready to give up on this yet! I am definitely going to try this again and make sure I have all the right ingredients and no substitutions. I believe it was my own fault for this recipe not fulfilling it's full potential. I think if you make this one time and don't like it, it's definitely worth another try.

Cheesy Potato Soup II

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2006
Alright, I took the advice of using half water half broth. I did not have slice cheese on hand, or enough cheese. I grated half a one pound block of cheese, and maybe 6-7 deli slices of swiss cheese. I must not have melted the cheese correctly, because it started to ball up. So, what I did do is I added a packet of "just add hot water!" potato flakes, cheese flavor. I also added chopped broccoli and a handful of baby carrots. As you can imagine, my soup is more like mashed potatoes, and it tastes great. I'm sure I can add water or more broth to make it more soup like. I definitely agree that this recipe has great potential. This was also my first time making soup!

Tim's Green Bean Casserole Extraordinaire

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2006
Since Thanksgiving of last year, I've already made this recipe 6 times! My family can't get enough of it and request it every holiday - so much I have to make two pans of it! I did not have to tweak any of the recipe. If you follow it correctly, no one will have to [unless it's to add your own touch].
