Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies III

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2006
Oh my goodness these are delicious! I have never tried the GS cookies but I made them last night and brought them to work and many people say they taste just like them...and the whole batch was wiped out by 8:30 am! I reduced the sugar in the cookies to 1/3 c. each white and brown sugar because another reviewer remarked that they were a little sweet. Too late, I realized I had only "old-fashioned" oats rather than "quick cooking" but the texture was great, crispy but chewy. I didn't even bother pressing them down with a fork...I just used my fingertips to "tamp" down the cookies and give them uniform round edges. Just about everyone asked for the recipe. DO make a double-batch. I didn't and wish I had. Thanks Joanne! You are a genius!

Ultimate Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2006
This is a good recipe. I used red potatoes and substituted minced scallions for the chopped onion. I upped the pepper to 1 tsp. (we love pepper) and will most likely add more next time. I also added 2 cloves of minced garlic, about 2 oz. of minced pimento and a dash of cayenne. I also took other reviewers suggestion and lightened it up (but not too much) by using only 2 c. half and half and 2 c. lowfat milk. Next time I will probably use milk only as it was still very rich and I don't think that we would miss those extra calories. Thanks Chrisee!

Stuffed Chicken with Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2006
Nice and simple recipe. I sprinkled my chicken breasts with cajun spice & took WHATS HIS FACE's advice and browned the chicken before stuffing them. I skipped the scalloped potatoes entirely and used remaining stuffing in it's place (I used only two chicken breasts). I used Mrs. Cubbinson's Cornbread Stuffing, adding sauteed onion and celery. While the chicken was baking, I reduced 1/3 c. plum jam and 1/3 c. water and glazed the chicken with it about 35 minutes into baking (I baked for 40 min.) This created a nice sweet/savory flavor. The chicken was very tender and juicy. Thanks Helen!

Ham 'N' Cheese Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2006
Simple and delicious recipe. I used turkey instead of ham and added about 1/2 c. drained green chile. I also used about 1/4 c. shaved parmesan. Thanks Christena!

Marinara Sauce II

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2006
Good recipe, though needs a bit more seasoning. I used two cans crushed tomatoes, added extra onion & garlic and used brown sugar rather than white sugar. I wish I had read others reviews and would have added even more flavor, like oregano or fennel. Good & easy recipe, though. Thanks Andrea!

Fresh Semolina and Egg Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2006
I wanted to experiment with my new pasta machine and couldn't pass up this recipe as I LOVE products with semolina. In retrospect, I should have rolled the dough thinner as my pasta came out too thick for my taste, and I'll do just that with the remaining pasta dough that I wrapped up and put in the refrigerator. Warning: this recipe is messy, time-consuming & FUN! There's nothing like making pasta from scratch! Thanks, Gino, on an excellent recipe!

Lemon Pasta Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2006
Great sauce, Holly. I used fat-free "half & half" (will use cream next time as there was an odd coagulation going on with the fat-free 1/2 & 1/2) and also added 1 tsp. black pepper. Based on other reviews, I added about 2 cloves minced garlic with the butter. It was a little bit salty & the appearance was somewhat similar to gravy so I think that I'll omit the broth next time and gently simmer the sauce, covered, so that it doesn't reduce (unsalted butter would help w/the saltiness, as well). I topped each serving with some grated pecorino romano and toasted hazel nuts. Thanks for the submission!

Chipotle Mayo

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2006
Very good. I took BN61079's advice and added garlic and lime juice. It was delicious on a sandwich with some sliced avocado!

Open-Faced Broiled Roast Beef Sandwich

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2006
Tasty sandwich! Used with some Peppercini Beef and Chipotle Mayo recipes, both from this site. Added sliced peppercini peppers, sliced avocado and olives as well with the tomato and onion. After broiling I topped with shredded lettuce. Delicious...and filling! Thank you!

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2006
Nice & tender & very flavorful. I salted & peppered my beef before placing in the slow cooker & also added 1/2 of a red onion, sliced. It was delicious on warm bread w/provolone cheese, extra pepper, lettuce & tomato. Thanks Joyce!

Manicotti Shells

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2006
These were the bomb! Tender and sooo much better than store-bought shells. I cut the recipe in half and it made 8 shells. No modifications needed on this recipe. Thank you Diane!

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2006
I LOVE this recipe! Thick but not too thick with a fabulous flavor. I used 1 1/2 tsp. dried parsley, omitted the salt since I was serving it with manicotti (all that cheese has a lot of salt!) added 1 tsp. dried basil based on TNFRENCH's recommendation and about 2 tsp. brown sugar based on TUNISIANSWIFE review. I used red onion and reduced the olive oil to 3 tbsp (will most likely use even less next time). Thanks Jackie for a great marinara sauce.

Stuffed Shells III

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2006
Delicious! I used this filling with the manicotti shells recipe from this site. I used pecorino romano cheese in place of the parmesan and replaced the parsley with fennel seed. Thank you Renee!

Easy Ham and Cheese Appetizer Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2006
Very good. Used black forest ham, omitted the poppy seeds as I used sesame seed rolls, and rather than using the 1 c. butter, I used 2 tbsp light mayo & 2 tbsp butter (and still had left-over spread). We like onion, though, so went with about 3/4 c. grated onion. I used Havarti rather than Swiss, and took the advice of others and wrapped the sandwiches in foil and then baked for about 15 minutes. Easy to prepare and not your typical "Ham and Cheese". Next time I'll be a more generous with the sandwich spread as it is delish! Thanks Doreen!

Baby BLT

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2006
Based on other reviews, I used pre-cooked bacon bit, about 1 1/2 oz. (will probably use only 1 oz. next time) and used 1 txp. dried parsley in lieu of fresh. Thanks to PEGNMIL for her thoughts on adding some cheese. I cut the mayo back to 1/4 c. and added 1/4 c. shredded sharp cheddar cheese. It was time consuming, though, so when I felt I could not stuff another tomato, I decided to chop the remaining tomatoes (after removing the pulp) and add that to the filling. I think it will make for a great sandwich spread tomorrow. I may even add some pimento...yum. Thanks Angela!

Spicy Indian (Gujarati) Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2006
Hmmm...I had to try this as I love all the ingredients. However, I did decide to nix the sugar but this was very good. I used frozen green beans and steamed just until they were warm. Instead of 1/4 c. oil I used 2 tbsp. canola (will try olive oil next time) and 2 tbsp. of butter. After that I tossed in the green beans until nice and warm. I love how the green beans were nice and crisp & the kick of the pepper added a nice touch. Thanks CeesHouse! It's nice to see a green bean recipe that doesn't call for canned cream soup for a change of pace!

Sorta Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2006
I really like this recipe, since I'm not a mushroom fan, since it doesn't call for mushrooms, plus it's easy to make with cube steaks rather than combining ground meat with egg, etc. I add 1/2 tsp. each of salt and pepper to the flour. I didn't have much liquid left after cooking so I added only a few tbsp. of reserved flour and some milk to create a nice gravy. Near the end I added an additional 1 tsp. worstershire sauce just for personal preference, though I'm sure it would have been fine without. I ended up with a little extra gravy but when has that ever been a problem? Very good, very simple, very inexpensive. Thanks Nanci!

Honey Butter

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2006
I've made honey butter but usually just "eyeball" the amounts so this recipe is nice to have...I reduced the honey by 1 tbsp. and added 2 tbsp. of orange juice. Yum! And not too sweet. Thanks Shannon, and, by the way, I love your name!

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2006
I have always wanted to replicate the garlic-cheese biscuits from one of my favorit restaurants and now I can! I followed other reviewers advice and doubled the cheese (about 1 cup) as well as adding 1 tsp. of garlic, 1/4 tsp. onion powder and about 1/2 tsp. of dried parsley to the biscuit batter. In the butter, I added the called for amounts of garlic and onion powder, increased the parsley to 1/2 tsp (love the color and flavor) and omitted the salt. I used baking spray rather than parchment paper and took advice from another reviewer and brushed the biscuits with the butter and popped them back in the oven for a few minutes. Next time I will most likely increase the amount of garlic a bit and maybe make 1/2 a batch as these are hard to resist (I don't believe it's very kind to my waist line!) Thanks Cookie...and also, would you happen to have the restaurant recipe for the blackened fish spice blend??? Yummy!

Creamy Spiced Coleslaw

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2006
Very good. I used broccoli slaw and added a little extra black pepper (I think it could have used even more). Quick and easy & it went great with the ribs I made last night. Thanks for the submission!
