Waffles I

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
Yum!!! I've been looking for a yeast free recipe for quite some time. Little did I know that just typing in "waffle" on allrecipes.com would find the perfect one. I did double the vanilla and sugar, and beat the egg whites per the suggestions. I am so glad I did!!! I made these for a evening snack and served with powdered sugar, blackberry compote, and whipped cream. I imagined I'd have batter for the morning, but I was wrong lol!!!!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
I followed AMERETTE's advice of making more sauce, and am glad I did. I first made it per the recipe, and it was a bit dry (hence the 4 stars), so I doubled the sauce ingredients. It came out wonderfully. No more Mannwich in this house!!!

Pan Dulces

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
I found this recipe when helping my son with a project. They were a huge hit at home and school. I've started making them for the family. The changes I made was to add a tsp of vanilla to the topping to make it pasty, and to make 32 smaller buns rather then 16 large buns. These were still the size of a regular bagel so that was fine by me. As a tip make the topping first, spoon it onto plastic wrap, roll it into a log and chill while making the dough. Then slice into small rounds with a hot, wet knife and place them onto the buns before baking. Saves a lot of time this way...

Asian Fire Meat

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
This was quick and easy to prepare but wasn't hot at all. Apart from that it was quite salty. Perhaps subbing some of the soy sauce with stock, using reduced sodium soy sauce or perhaps both would be helpful...

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
I made these for a dinner party and everyone loved them! I was so surprised at just how good they were. Like others I used 1 c. white sugar and 1/2 c. brown sugar. Melted the butter, added sugars and cinnamon and then cooked down into a thick syrup. Spooned over dumplings, that had been sitting in fridge for 3 hours, added Mountain Dew and then baked for about 40 minutes. May try to bake without the sauce once to get a crisper dumpling for those who like that but I love the chewy and crispy textures together. Wonderful recipe that is oh so easy!!!

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
I didn't have poppy seeds so I subbed celery seeds and used mayo instead of miracle whip as that's what we buy. Kept everything else the same and the whole family loved it. Will be making this for years to come...

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
I wanted to make pizza at home for the first time and was looking for an easy, but good, recipe for pizza dough. Well I found it in this one! My entire family loved it and wants pizza more than ever. I was able to make two, 12" pizzas which was more than enough for our family.

Marinade for Steak I

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
This marinade was pretty good. I cut it down to 10 servings as I wasn't sure of how much meat 20 would marinate. I let the meat (top sirloin) sit for about 24 hours and it was tender and juicy. I did tenderize it prior though. I subbed honey dijon as it was what I had and used onion powder instead of fresh onions since my 5 year old will only eat them if he doesn't know they are there. Overall good but seems like too much oil...

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2008
I love greek food and this dressing makes for a great salad. I scaled it down to eight servings and made it in my italian dressing carafe. I used honey dijon mustard as it's what had on hand. I dumped all the dry ingredients in first followed by the oil and vinegar. A good shake was all that was needed. Even my 12 month old loved it. I'll def be keeping this on hand...

Butter Beef

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2008
I gave this four stars because it was really good but I did have to make some changes. I browned the beef in batches with garlic powder and cracked pepper. I then carmelized 1 small onion sliced into rings and melted the rest of the butter with it before adding it to the beef and onion soup. I'll be reducing the butter to probably 1/3 c next time. Also I was curious to see if this could be made in the oven as well so I baked it in a TIGHTLY covered baking dish for 3 1/2 hours at 300 degrees and it was moist and tender. Great easy recipe.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
These are great and oh so easy. I've been making them for months now and they come out perfect with red or white potatoes. One change I made is using 2 t. of italian seasoning blend in place of the herbs. I keep the salt, garlic, parsley and red pepper the same. I also roast them for an hour in a 400 degree oven stirring every 15 minutes...

Mrs. Sigg's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2008
I've had better cookies than these but figured I'd review them anyway. On behalf of the recipe I did follow other reviews and made a few changes. I halved the recipe (still made 40 cookies) and used 1/2 c of butter, 3/4 c of peanut butter and 1 1/2 c of flour. I added mini chocolate chips to half of them. These didn't have a strong peanut butter flavor despite adding extra pb. I'll still be looking for my go-to recipe...

Spicy Crispy Beef

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2008
I have to say I was a sceptic as I'd never deep fried beef strips before but man oh man was this good. I'm not a huge fan of bell pepper so I used match stick carrots instead. Also I only had rice vinegar on hand so I used that for both the wine and vinegar. I served this with steamed rice, cucumber sunomono and kimchi. Kids loved it...

Crushed Pineapple Sour Cream Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
I found this while looking for a way to use up crushed pineapple. After reading the reviews and seeing how little 8 oz of pineapple was, I decided to double the recipe. I used a 20 oz can of pineapple, kept the sugar the same and doubled the pudding and sour cream. It came out nice and thick and I only had about 1/2 c left over after filling a ready made graham crust. Which by the way is good by itsself. Not a fancy pie but it tastes great :)

Fried Okra

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
Just what I was looking for. I'm from the south so fried okra is near and dear to me. I followed the review for using frozen okra and it came out great. I didn't have cornmeal on hand so I used 1 c of jiffy mix and 1 c of flour for the breading. I gave this recipe 4 stars only because of the changes I had to make otherwise it would have gotten a 5.

Tzatziki Sauce II

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
Yummy! We're overseas so authentic greek food is very common but every once in a while I prefer to have it at home. This recipe is very close to what they serve at the restaurant nearby. I use an english cucumber, to avoid seeds, and German plain whole-milk yogurt becuase it is a bit thicker. To cut down on the waiting time I layer paper towels and gently squeeze out the moisture. I also use minced garlic and add a drizzle of olive oil. Great recipe...

Cucumber Sunomono

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
Great recipe! I decided to use this when I was in a rush and needed a recipe that was faster than my usual. I used 1 large european cucumber to avoid the seeds and kept everything else at the listed amount. Served with asian fire meat, steamed rice and kimchee. Will be making this often!
