Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2005
Very easy to make, with soft, chewy results. I made slightly larger cookies, ending up with 35, so they took a little longer to bake, about 12 minutes. I took these to work and within 4 hours, they were nearly gone, and everyone went on about how fantastic they were. I'll definately be making these again.

Pan Pierogies

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
This is pretty good! I used real potatoes (leftover mashed, seasoned with onion powder), added cheese directly to the potatoes, and cut the serving size down to 2. The butter was already in the potatoes, so no need to add more. I used two single-serving sized souffle cups sprayed with non-stick spray and carefully layered pieces of lasagna noodles with my cheesy potatoes. I topped it with some more cheese and bacon bits. Sooo tasty!

Dale's Lamb

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2012
I used chunks of lamb leg in this marinade for lamb kebabs and it was WONDERFUL. My boyfriend's biggest complaint was not having enough lamb. Will definitely be making again!

Simple Chicken Brine

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
Easy and made my little game hens turn out super moist and delicious. I cut the game hens in half and only left them in the brine about 3 hours, then rinsed them when they came out. They weren't too salty (and I think most things are too salty) and they grilled up perfectly.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2012
I have a new go-to pizza crust recipe. Crusty on the outside but soft and chewy inside. Good flavor, easy to work with, and baked up quickly and evenly.

Cinco de Chili Chocolate Cupcakes with Chili Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: May 4, 2012
Easy and delicious! I'm diabetic so I made a couple changes to suit my diet needs, using a no-sugar-added cake mix (Pilsbury brand) and cutting the confections sugar in the icing in half. They're still fantastic and you'd never know they were lower sugar. That being said, I imagine adding the full 4 cups of confectioner's sugar would make the icing even better (it was darn good with half!). I did think the heat was a little mild and added just a bit more ancho and cayenne to the mix. I don't think I'm brave enough to add chopped bits of pepper though. Definitely making these again, and definitely going to go eat another right now!

Bada Bing Bada Banged Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
My boyfriend refers to these as "The tasty smashed potatoes" and is always very pleased to see them on the dinner table. I've made them with parm and cheddar cheeses (depending on what I've got) and both were delicious.

Perfect Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2012
First time I made this I made it exactly as directed and it was delicious! The second time I made it with a slightly thicker batter (2 extra tbs of flour), a little less sugar, and a little more vinegar (I used rice wine vinegar). I also made twice as much sauce to make sure we had plenty for blanched broccoli and more rice the next day. Make sure your oil is screaming hot and drop each piece in slowly to help keep it from sticking to your fry pan. I like to lower mine in piece by piece with tongs - it takes longer, but it's worth it not to have to scrub the pan later. Overall: I'm pretty sure my boyfriend is going to require me to make this at least once a week. I'm totally ok with that. Superb.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2012
Pretty much all I have to say is YUM! I do think the flour could be cut back a bit, I had to add quite a bit of water to my dough to work it all in. Everything else was spot on, and they were a huge hit!

Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
I halved this recipe to use in the little pot of chicken soup I made for myself. They were delicious and this is now my go-to dumpling recipe. Very easy, fast, and wonderful. I couldn't ask for more than that!

Brazilian Chicken with Coconut Milk

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2013
We really loved this, but I must say, it's an Indian curry, not a South American anything. It did have a bit of a kick to it, so if you can't handle heat, cut back on the cayenne pepper. Serving it with rice really tamed it down. I also thought it served more than 4. We cut the chicken into 1 inch chunks and then divided it into 6 servings and found it to be very filling (with rice). Next time I think I will try using regular coconut milk to get a bit more coconut flavor, and maybe topping it with toasted coconut flakes. And there will definitely be a next time. This was delicious and easy!

Yummy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2013
I keep some of this in the fridge at all times. It's good the day you make it, but it really is better the next day. I usually add a little more yellow mustard to it because we prefer it that way.

Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Almonds

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
I'm one of those horrible grown ups who won't eat vegetables. And I ate these. And I liked them. My boyfriend said these were the highlight of his dinner. They really were that good. I used a mandolin slicer to shave them and it was very easy and they looked great. We will definitely be having these again, soon!

Oven Roasted Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2013
I made this recipe with cut up boneless chicken breast and boneless skinless thighs. The smaller pieces meant the chicken only had to be cooked about 7 minutes per side at 425F, which made it a super quick and delicious meal. I also used half brown sugar and half Splenda, and used a low sodium soy sauce to keep the saltiness at bay. Highly recommended and we'll be making this again. Serve it with steamed rice and broccoli for a healthy fast meal.

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
I made this for a family get together and it was a huge hit. I put it on to cook in my crock pot before I went to work, and by the time I got home my whole apartment smelled like a delicious meaty heaven. Super, super wonderful.

Scott's Buffalo Wing Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
First let me admit that I'm a total wuss when it comes to spicy things. I was a bit hesitant about making buffalo wings at all, but my boyfriend loves them, so I decided to try and find something I could easily make less spicy for me. The other reviewers are correct. This sauce is pretty mild. As-is, I could happily eat it. Since my boyfriend likes spicier things, we divided the sauce in half and added more hot sauce to his and more honey to mine. It turned out great (both his and mine) and we'll definitely be making boneless buffalo wings again in the near future.

Bar-B-Que Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
This is a very tasty BBQ sauce! It's mild, but you could easily kick the heat up or down with more or less hot sauce. I had to make a few changes to the recipe because I didn't have everything: 1 small fresh garlic clove instead of the garlic powder, 1 tablespoon prepared mustard for the mustard powder, and rice vinegar instead of cider vinegar. I also added a dash of crushed red pepper flakes and some onion powder. I'll definitely be making this again!

Fettuccini Carbonara

My boyfriend's review said it all: "You made me a believer in cream sauces!" Very good, very easy, and something I make regularly now.

Feta and Bacon Stuffed Chicken with Onion Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2012
First I would like to make the disclaimer that I did make a few changes in this recipe due to personal taste. The chicken: I used panko breadcrumbs instead of regular (for more texture) and added about 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning to them for flavor. My boyfriend and I decided to cut a bit of fat and skipped the frying of the chicken, instead baking it in the oven completely. I felt the mashed potatoes were a bit dry so I added 2-3 tablespoons of milk. With these changes, I will DEFINITELY make this again. I think even made as-is the recipe would still be five star, though maybe only four for the potatoes.

Fabulous French Loaves

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
Not too difficult, very tasty. I ended up making three loaves because I wanted them to be a little skinnier for subs. The third loaf I spread butter and olive oil with herbs and garlic before I rolled the loaf. It turned out fantastic. The leftover plain bread made excellent French toast a couple days later.
