Maple Pecan Granola

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
Awesome! Added a half cup shredded coconut and subbed coconut oil for canola oil and vanilla for maple extract. This is a definite keeper! Oh I don't like cinnamon in my granola so I left it out. Thanks!

Hearty Maple Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
I have made this now at least half a dozen times and it does not disappoint! So versatile! I have made it with and without bacon, polish and kielbasa sausage, and even leftover ham. I omit one of the cans of beans and double the meat, but I am sure it is good either way. We use a can of Baked Beans and a can of Pinto beans. I have even reduced the maple syrup and still loved the results. It is one of my husbands favorite meals. I use apple cider vinegar and have tried adding 1-2 tablespoons BBQ sauce. Truth be told I have never baked it, I either make it in the skillet and simmer on the stove for 20-30 minutes or most of the time I toss it all in the crock pot and cook it on low for 4 hours. I love to prepare this and bring it camping. Just put it in pot and reheat out in the woods!

Cabbage Beef Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
Pulled this together with what I had on hand. Used one 15 oz. can tomato sauce and chopped 3 plum tomatoes, 1 can pinto and 1 can black (our favorites), substituted beef broth for the water and bouillon. Used a whole onion. Followed previous suggestions and cut the cumin down to 1t, used 1t of garlic powder, and chopped a whole head of cabbage. Looking at some similar recipes I added 3T apple cider vinegar and 2T sugar at the end to improve the flavor. Last thing, I would definitely put the cabbage in at the very beginning. It cooks perfectly and melts in your mouth! Yummy.

Apple Spice Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
This was a hit at home and at work! I added 3 T of oil because I was worried it wouldn't be moist enough, it came out lovely. Made 18 cupcakes! Used Caramel Frosting I also from this site. Prepared the frosting and dipped the tops of the cupcakes into it. The flavors were excellent together. My 4 year-old says they are his favorite cupcake and he wants them for his upcoming Birthday. Try this recipe, you won't be disappointed.

Man Loaf (Variation of the Meatloaf)

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
Well this is great! and my husband did love it! I made some adjustments based on what I had on hand and a few by choice. I only had 12 oz. bacon and I baked it since I find it turns out more evenly cooked. I added some Worcestershire sauce to the meat mix maybe a couple teaspoons. I used 1.5 lbs ground turkey and 0.5 lbs beef. I subbed crushed saltines for bread crumbs and shredded cheddar/jack/mozzarella mix for cheddar. For the glaze I used our usual meatloaf glaze since my husband really likes it (1/2 cup ketchup, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1 T lemon juice, and 2 teaspoons mustard). For prep I recommend reading the instructions on the Cheeseburger meatloaf recipe to get a more detailed outline of the "jelly roll" technique. Mine was really sticky and I was so glad I had the wax paper to help with the rolling. I baked it in a 9x13 glass dish, put it in for 30 min and then glazed and placed the bacon on top and returned for 30 min. I used a thermometer to time it (beeps when it gets to an internal temp of 160 and that happened almost exactly at an hour). I did not top with cheese and I am glad I put the bacon in earlier since it was not quite done at the end and I so I broiled it for a couple minutes to crisp up. To be honest I don't think it needs the bacon on top, especially after all the bacon inside. I would definitely make this again! Next time I will try to keep some of the cheese away for the edges so to cut down on leakage (even with the pinching of sides).

Graham Streusel Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
Wow, I made this with gingersnaps since I had them on hand and I used a box of golden butter cake (next time I will try vanilla, I avoid yellow cake mix since it really taste like box mix to me). I followed previous suggestions and used a full 2 teaspoons of cinnamon and I left out the glaze since I ran out of time. I brought this to work and everyone raved, it was gone in minutes.

Campbell's Kitchen Chicken Broccoli Divan

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
A little bland! Next time I will steam the broccoli for a bit first since my husband likes it a bit softer then the final product. Also I doubled the bread crumbs (not butter) and next time I will double the cheese.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
Great! I used apple cider vinegar because that was all I had on hand and it was fine. I replaced a 1/4 cup of the flour with flax meal to boost the nutrition and added a teaspoon of vanilla for flavor. We loved them plain, I tossed some chocolate chips on top while cooking for my kids. Delicious! a definite keeper!

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
Put this together with what I had on hand. I doubled the recipe, but only had a 16 oz. cottage cheese container so that is what I used. It looked a bit dry, so after stirring it in the pan I poured a little under a cup of milk over it before adding the topping. For the topping I used crushed saltines instead of bread crumbs, it was crunchy and yummy. I will make this again.

Apple-Cranberry Crisp

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
Wow, this was great. I doubled the filling (generous with the apples), and tripled the topping, then used a 9x13 pan. I am not a big fan of nutmeg, so I substituted Pumpkin Pie Spice (might also try dried ginger next time). Also, I used half brown sugar in the filling. This is a keeper, soon to be a holiday favorite in our home!

Shiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
Wow, yummy, shiny, and easy. I cut the recipe in half for 24 cupcakes. I used half semi-sweet chocolate chips and 2 1oz. bars of unsweetened chocolate since that is what I had on hand. Even though I halfed the recipe since I used some unsweetened chocolate I used a whole tablespoon of honey and I melted the whole thing in a pyrex dish in the microwave. I heated it for 20 seconds and then stirred and repeated until it was smooth (about 70 seconds total). I will definitely use this again and again.

BAKER'S Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2009
One word "addictive", don't make these unless you have extreme self control. I am not a big sweet eater, but my son and I made these today and I can't stop grabbing at them. Followed the recipe exactly, but flatten the cookies a tiny bit before baking and turned the oven temp down a tad because they seemed to cook a little too fast. I hope I can avoid eating them all, so I can share them at work tomorrow.

My Kid's Favorite Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
This was pretty good, I used bud light because that was all we had on hand. Added a bit of Worcestershire sauce based on previous reviews and made my Montreal Steak Seasoning from scratch since I don't have any on hand from a recipe on chow.com The pork chops were not as tender as I would like, but I think it was the cut and not the recipe. Next time I will try thick bone-in chops.

Coconut Chocolate Dream Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2009
Can't give this 5 stars because I changed it so much, but it is definitely 5 stars with my modifications! I found a similar recipe online by Alton Brown and I merged the two and ended up with following changes. Used the Graham Cracker Crust I recipe from this site. Substituted Cream of coconut (from the alcoholic beverage aisle) for the orange juice concentrate and the maple syrup. Used a 1/4 cup rice milk and 1/4 cup chocolate liquor (creme de cocoa, could use any liquor i.e. coffee, orange, etc). Lastly, I increased the chocolate chips to 1.5 cups and tofu to 12 oz. Filled the crust perfectly, and set very nicely, very creamy and very flavorful!

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
This was good, but I usually use the Lisa's Chocolate Chocolate Chip cake recipe also on this website and I think I prefer it. I didn't have coffee liquor, so I used Creme de Cocoa liquor. Everyone at work liked it. Made 24 cupcakes, baked for 18-20 minutes. Topped with Whipped Cream Cheese frosting also from this site.

Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies (Cookie Mix)

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
Yummy, I made a lemon version. I added 1t lemon extract to the cookie batter and then I used lemon marmalade (curd would also work) for the filling and then drizzled with citrus glaze (1 cup sifted powdered sugar and a 4 teaspoons orange juice/or lemon juice).

Baked Lemon Chicken with Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
Wow, this is great with a few changes (most as previously suggested). I marinated the chicken (I used tenders, 2 lbs) in a T olive oil, the juice of 1 lemon, 1t italian seasoning, and 1/2 t old bay (or poultry) seasoning for 2 hours, flipping over at one hour. Then I sprayed a bit of olive oil spray in my skillet and poured the chicken and juice into the pan to brown on each side and then I covered with a lid and cooked each side 7 minutes until no longer pink on medium heat. I took the chicken out of the pan to keep warm in a 200 degree oven while I used the same skillet for the gravy. I cut the butter down to 2 T and added a chopped shallot along with salt and pepper with the mushrooms (used a 10 oz. container of sliced mushrooms). After adding the flour I added the chicken broth a little at a time until I had the right consistency to call it gravy. It was darn yummy. Thanks

Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
I just love this recipe! We make them once a month. I always use all-natural peanut butter (sometimes smooth, sometimes crunchy) and I usually split the sugar with 1/2 brown sugar. I love that these are gluten free, so we can share them with our friend that avoid wheat products. This is the best ever!

Vegan Red Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
Followed previous suggestions and used a whole can of light coconut milk, 2 cups vegetable broth and one cup water. Plus added some shitake mushrooms. Didn't have peanut oil, so I used canola. Great dish, but still a bit thick with the extra liquid. Great fall food!

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2008
Wow, I have been looking for a recipe like this for years! I used butter instead of margarine, and whole wheat pastry flour instead of all-purpose. For flavor I used 3 heaping tablespoons of cocoa, but chopped pecans instead of chocolate chips (my 2 year-old doesn't need the extra chocolate) and put the whole thing together with a toddler to help. Fast, easy, and delicious. Don't skip the cinnamon! YUMMY. Next time I might add some flaked coconut!
