Sweet and Spicy Stir Fry with Chicken and Broccoli

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2014
I wanted to make chicken and broccoli today but didn't have chicken so I subbed pork, and I put it all in the crock pot. I quadrupled the sauce but kept the chili paste to one tablespoon thinking it would be plenty, and it was. I cooked the pork in the sauce, then tossed in baby carrots, then tossed in the broccoli. Once everything was done and the pork was completely falling apart, I mixed in about 6 teaspoons of cornstarch to thicken the sauce, then served over rice. It was spicy but not too spicy, and pretty tasty. This recipe clearly modifies well and using the slow cooker made it a breeze. Thanks for the recipe!

Molasses Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2014
These cookies take a bit of arm strength to mix. ;) then again, I'm used to my KA mixer so I haven't mixed cookies by hand in a long time! The dough was still wet after 6 cups of flour, so it probably is one of those cookie recipes that need more flour if you are going to make roll out cookies as suggested. I'm not a fan of roll out cookies--I admit, I'm too lazy for them, so I made drop cookies instead. I tried flattening with a glass bottom with cinnamon sugar but then resorted to rolling them in sugar and flattening with my hands, which worked better for me. The sugar kind of melts into the cookie as it bakes, so I wonder if a coarser sugar like Turbinado would not melt in. Regardless, these cookies don't spread much (I used margarine due to intolerances--butter may spread more) but they do puff up then flatten slightly as they cool. So, you can put them pretty close together on your cookie sheet. They have a very sweet, molasses flavor. I'd add more ginger and maybe a few other spices if I made these again. thanks for the recipe!

Chocolate Chip Pistachio Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2014
Not bad. I didn't separate the dough either and just made a batch of cookies without the nuts and chocolate chips. I put in a cup of white chocolate chips instead and thought the dough was a tad dry; the cookies seemed somewhat dry to me as well, so next time I might increase the milk a bit--maybe to a 1/4 cup--to see if that helps. I do taste the pistachio and thought they had some nice flavor. They are only slightly tinged green, which makes sense. :) All in all, decent cookies that don't spread much. I used a medium cookie scoop and it yielded almost 4 dozen. thanks for the recipe!

Raisin Honey Chews

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2014
I accidentally added more honey than called for; glad I lowered the sugar content a bit. Unlike others, I did notice the honey flavor and didn't notice the orange peel as much. Perhaps because I used more honey and used dried orange peel? At any rate, these are a nice little cookie that are very sweet. They flatten pretty well but with small cookies you can put several on a cookie sheet; just space them apart. They are chewy yet a bit crisp all at the same time. Thanks for the recipe!

Oatmeal Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2014
These do taste like sugar cookies--more on the sugar cookie spectrum than on the oatmeal cookie spectrum. they are good and spread a lot, but I did bake at 8 minutes instead of 10 minutes. I've learned through years of cookie baking to decrease the suggested time by 2 minutes--but I also know my oven. Some ovens run hot, some run cold, so it helps to know what you are working with. I don't feel this made a ton of cookies, but it was a decent sized batch. Thanks for the recipe.

Aunt Sally Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2014
This recipe is only for the cookie, not the icing since I didn't make it along with the cookies. Nice cookies, although I don't think a half hour is enough to chill this dough. I made the dough around 5:30 am and went to bake the cookies around 8 or 8:30 am and it was difficult to work with as cutouts, so I ended up doing only a pan of cutouts and the rest as drop cookies which I smooshed with some sugar and the bottom of a glass. I then had hubs try to see if he felt they needed the frosting and he didn't think they needed it. I agree; they are sweet enough and if you like gingerbread cookies, you will love these. They make a ton and my mixer was straining a bit with this mix. Thanks for the recipe!

Italian Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2014
These certainly are not the prettiest cookies I've ever made, nor are they my favorite. I halved it and it still was difficult for my KA to deal with this dough. I did add a couple of eggs and only put them in for 10 minutes each batch. I didn't really want biscotti type cookies; maybe that's what these are supposed to be, but I didn't want that. Hubs thought they didn't have enough sugar; I agree. They aren't very sweet, and they do look like little meatballs. Not really my thing but thank you for the recipe! Glad I could try.

Mamaw's Devils Food Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2014
The first time I made this, I forgot to put in the eggs. Oops. It made a huge mess in my oven and was a crumbly mess in the pan . . .although the crumbs were tasty. I tried this again today and yep, you need the eggs. ;) Much better with them! I did halve the spices and it does taste like devil's food to me. I originally was going to make the frosting but after the debacle with the eggs I gave up, so I can't speak to that, but this is an easy from scratch devil's food cake. Thanks for the recipe!

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2014
LOL . . .all hilarity aside, I like my grilled cheese on whole grain bread with a bit of brown mustard spread on the inside and with sliced tomatoes as a compliment to the cheese. Otherwise, carry on. ;) thanks for the recipe.

Jill's Vegetable Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2014
Yummy chili. I did add more cumin and chili powder--couldn't resist, and added more beans by putting in chickpeas as well, and dumped in picante sauce I had in the fridge just because I didn't have canned diced tomatoes (thought I did, but apparently not). I almost completely forgot the corn and added that in at the last minute. This makes for a lot of chili--or I just added a lot of stuff--but hubs and I really enjoyed it. I did decide to plop it all in the slow cooker and let it simmer all day, which I'm glad I did. Only issue is that the slow cooker made it watery, but I kept the lid off for the last hour or so of cooking which helped it thicken. All in all, I did add some things but I think it's a versatile recipe that allows you to do it, and it turned out well. thanks for the recipe1

Buttermilk Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2014
Lovely bread. A tad crumbly, but it could've been my wheat flour. I didn't add in the preservatives--didn't have them, and didn't feel like searching the stores for them. It still turned out really well. I mixed the dough in my bread machine for convenience and baked at 350 for 40 minutes. Delicious. Thanks for the recipe!

Perfect Mississippi Mud Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2014
Very nice cake. I decided to make cupcakes, as I was taking this to work, and ended up with a lot of cupcakes, so bear that in mind if you want cupcakes as well! I didn't make the frosting as I tend to believe most cake is sweet enough, and I felt this to be true with this cake. I did top about half the cupcakes with marshmallows, which kind of ended up making for a melted, crusty, gooey type top. Kind of interesting . . .I must say, though, that there was one cupcake left out of all the ones I took to work by the end of the day. Not bad at all, especially considering I also had on the tray a coffee cake. I count these as a success, and they were incredibly easy to make. Thanks for the recipe!

Nacho Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2014
Fun little recipe. I made this more into a main dish by adding beans and some chopped Boca burgers. Husband was a bit unsure about this but I probably should've served with sour cream (which I forgot about) and salsa. It is rather filling and I think would also be a good base for a taco salad. Thanks for the recipe!

Blender White Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2014
I doubled this to make a loaf of bread and rolls. Very easy bread, and makes a very basic white bread. Good as rolls or sandwich bread. Bakes up beautifully as well. I baked the rolls for 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven and they browned perfectly; the bread was done in 40 minutes at the same temperature. Thanks for the recipe!

Mexican Potato Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2014
Not a bad casserole. I didn't feel like topping with tomato and instead used a Pace picante sauce in the eggs themselves. Worked well, but this took forever to bake. However, might have been my fault since I added more eggs. Otherwise, pretty good--my only thought is that perhaps the potatoes could be fried up beforehand to decrease baking time and to make them crispier. Otherwise, nice casserole. Thanks for the recipe.

Christmas Breakfast Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2014
Nice breakfast casserole. I wanted something simple for a work breakfast and this fit the bill. Two things, though: I thought this needed more crust, so I used two packages of crescent roll dough instead of one, and I didn't understand why it needed to chill overnight. I didn't have the time to do that anyway, so I just baked. It was almost gone by the end of the day, and I really enjoyed it, so I think it was a hit. thanks for the recipe!

Easy Slow Cooker Baked Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2014
I decided to do everything in this recipe except the hamburger meat since I was serving them today with hamburgers. I went to the cupboard to pull everything out and didn't have a can of pork and beans. I guess I should have known . . .I don't always keep those on hand. I forged ahead anyway and used more bacon than called for but added maple syrup and a sweet peach salsa instead of the white sugar to the mix to add more liquid. I also added garlic to this and put everything on high for about 4 hours. This worked out really well and my company loved it; next time I'll try with actual pork and beans. I love that this goes in the slow cooker; makes it super easy. Thanks for the recipe!

Wheat Bread in Resealable Bag

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2014
Nice bread. I just mixed it up in the bread machine and baked in a pan in the oven for 40 minutes at 350. Turned out really well and was soft, so hubs gobbled it up just as well as he does other breads. Thansk for the recipe!

Oven-Fried Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2014
Very good and easy. I didn't use the egg and added Parmesan cheese just because. Turned out well, and these bake up quickly. They aren't my favorite pork chop recipe, but for a basic breaded pork chop they work well. I served with baked broccoli. Thanks for the recipe!

BLT Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2014
Very yummy deviled eggs. I added mustard and pickles, then sprinkled with paprika because I just cannot do deviled eggs without those ingredients, but I am sure they would be lovely without. Hubs requested deviled eggs and gobbled them down. thanks for the recipe!
