Mrs. Sigg's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
These cookies were delicious. Exactly what my husband and I were looking for. I was trying to decide between this recipe and a couple other ones that were rated highly. I didn't use shortening because I didn't have any but they turned out great. I followed the recipe exactly as written. I actually didn't use peanut butter but substituted Sunflower butter because my daughter has allergies. I cooked them for 8 minutes and let them sit on the tray and then transferred them to a cooling rack. I let them sit out overnight to cool and when I woke up they were still soft in the middle. The 'peanut butter' taste was really good too. This is going to be my husband's new favorite recipe.

Best Strawberry Daiquiri

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
I found this while looking for something else and I'm in love! I love this recipe. I thought it would be too much ice but it turned out perfect. I put a couple extra strawberries in but the lemon and lime contrast is perfect. Mine was a little thick to pour at first but I highly recommend this recipe. Thanks!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
I read all the reviews and I looked at the pictures and they looked AMAZING! I always make cookies with creamed butter and I was amazed that you could melt the butter and the cookies could look big and fat. So I followed the recipe exactly as written. They turned out just as was stated big, fat, and chewy. The only reason I didn't give them a 5 is the taste. They taste just OK. The ratio of brown sugar to regular sugar gives it a weird taste. Not really to my liking. I think I'll keep looking. Thanks for the idea of melted butter. I'm going to try it with my normal recipe.

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
I've never had sweet potatoes like this. I loved this recipe. I peeled and chopped a bunch of sweet potatoes in the oven until soft. Then I mashed them up and started the recipe. I only used 1/2 cup of sugar and added a bit of Myer's Dark rum. It really added a niec flavor to it. I added the topping and cooked it according the recipe. My husband said he loves this recipe.

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
I made this recipe with blueberries the first time and it turned out great. The entire office went gaga over it. I used frozen blueberries and coated them with flour before adding them. They still bled a little bit from mixing but it it was great. The second time I made it with cranberries and it was EVEN BETTER. I loved it so much I've made 4 more already since I first tried it. I only use 1 cup of sugar and I've tried swirling the pecan/sugar mixture into the batter but it never quite turns out the way I want it too. The batter is very thick and my baking time varies each time I make it. The first time it was done in 30 minutes and the other times it took about 45 minutes. I think the issue is with the amount of berries you add and how much liquid they contain. This is a great recipe! I'll definitely keep making it.

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2007
I absolutely love soup and read all the great reviews for this soup. It defintely didn't let me down. I did make some minor alterations based on the reviews. I used 5 cloves of garlic, 8 cups of chicken broth (instead of water), and 3/4 cup red wine, and the whole bag of baby spinach. I didn't add the kidney beans until the last 10 minutes so they wouldn't fall apart. I cooked the pasta separately and then added it. I used more then a half a cup because I like to see the pasta in my soup. It was a very thick soup even with the addition of all that chicken broth. I cooked it for about 1 hour give or take a little bit. I did think that addition of the parmesan cheese gave the soup great taste. I highly recommend this soup. All the great reviews are right, this soup is great.

Best Spinach Dip Ever

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2006
I made this recipe for a job that I was catering and multiplied the recipe times three. But doing it just for one it just as good. This got rave reviews. I used only 3/4 cup mayonnaise and the whole package of spinach. I usually let the spinach thaw completely and then wring it out in a kitchen towel. The leek soup mix is the key to it. It taste so much better then the Knorr Vegetable soup mix. I would definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2006
I saw this recipe was so highly rated that I just had to try it. My husband doesn't eat red meat so I made for my co-workers. I cut up 2 small onions, carrots and small red potatoes. I used everything the recipe states except swapped beef broth for the liquid and added 2 minced garlic cloves. I used a 3 pound roast. I would have never been able to fit a 5 pound in my crock pot. I filled the crock pot as follows: onions first, some carrots, some potatoes, some of the sauce, roast, the rest of the sauce, then some carrots and potatoes on the top. I put it on low for about nine hours. The meat just fell apart. It was wonderful. I added some potatoes and carrots about 3 hours or half way mark and they were just right. The ones I had put in there when I started the roast were flavorful and a little mushy but still good. The gravy was just right. I even had some cornstarch ready to make it thicker but it didn't need it. It really does make it's own gravy. I would recommended adding ground pepper. If you leave it in there too long it turns into more of a beef stew. Which isn't a bad alternative. Now only if I could get my husband to eat it. Needless to say everyone in the office loved it. They said it was the best they ever tasted and wanted to recipe. Thanks.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
I stumbled across this recipe and I thought I'd give it a try. I thought these cookies were great. I baked them for a cookie swap and my husband brought all of them to work. He said these were the big hit. I cooked them on a baking stone and the first batch I cooked them a little bit longer (10-12 minutes). But after the first batch 8-9 minutes was sufficient. The cookies won't look completely cooked but they turn out nice and crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. If these cookies are cooked to long they are still really good but they will be really hard and crunchy. So watch the time and it will be worth it. These are one of the best recipes I've ever tried. I will definitely be making these again.

French Onion Soup I

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2005
I stumbled upon this recipe and decided to give it a try. I altered the recipe according to previous reviewers. I used 1/2 cup butter. I added about 2 tsp of white sugar. I used three cups of sliced onions. Mostly yellow cooking onions and one red onion. I've read that using Vidalia onions are the best because they are sweet, so you might be able to omit the sugar if you use them. I cooked the onions on medium heat in the butter until they sweated down and were carmelized. That took a while but the taste it worth it. I used about 2 TBS of flour. Then I used 4 cans of beef broth, 1/2 cup wine, 1 TBS of worcestire sauce, some fresh thyme (the whole sprig's thrown in), 2 bay leaves, salt and pepper. I left that boil and then simmered on low for 20 minutes. At first it tasted like red wine but after simmering it had great flavor. Thanks so much for this recipe. I will be making this one again.

Spanish Potato Omelet

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2005
I thought this recipe was great. I even made it the night before for breakfast because my husband gets up early. It was definitely better when it was hot. I made some adjustments based on what other reviews stated. I personally didn't use as much olive oil because it started to splatter all over. I cubed the potatoes and cooked them in the microwave with a little bit of water. I diced the onion and added red pepper when I added the onion. I used 6 eggs instead of 4. And I skipped the tomatoes and the green onions. This recipe is actually really easy and really good. Be sure to use enough salt and pepper to flavor it. Thanks!

Whipped Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2004
I thought this recipe was really good. I used Confectioner's sugar first and it tasted powdery. So I used regular sugar and it tasted great. I think next time I'll use a little less vanilla andd use 2 tablespoons of regular sugar. This is definitely a "keeper" recipe. It is so easy to make and my husband loved it. We'll never buy Coolwhip again.

Tofu Keema

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2004
I thought this recipe was great. My husband does not like tomatoes so I added a little vegetable broth. I would have like to thicken the vegetable broth with a little cornstarch. I would definitely make this dish again.
