Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2014
Took the advice to add an extra cup of oats, made some small additions(I'll mention below) and voila! Oatmeal cookie heaven! I'm so tempted to make another batch asap. You know those oatmeal cookies that sort of melt in your mouth? This recipe gives you that kind of cookie. I scaled recipe back to 2 dozen instead of original 3. Additions: I added some water at the end of mixing, 1-2 TBSP(the extra added oats made the dough seem a bit on the dry side) 2/3 cup chocolate chips 3/4 cup shredded coconut 2 tsp vanilla

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2014
This has become a "sometimes" go to meal for me. There's a reason there's so many positive reviews! I think it's a great idea for a burrito, tasty, and glad somebody shared their idea. It's good as is and a little avocado doesn't hurt. I will note my SO was not as big of a fan as I was.

Janine's Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2013
Finally found the banana bread I was searching for! I followed some of the alternations from other comments- 2 eggs instead of 1, 2/3 cup of sugar instead of a whole cup. I added extra butter because it wasn't creaming very well so that became 1/4 cup butter to 1/2 cup. Also added 1/3 cup dried dates(presoaked in hot water, very sugary if you don't)into wet mix before adding dry ingredients. I got delicious, thick, moist banana bread! This is the kind of banana bread that when I think "banana bread" I want! Great taste and texture. The only issue I found was the banana flavor slightly lacked to me and my family. Should I make it again I will probubly add an extra mashed banana to the mix. No issues in my oven doing 350 for 1 hour.

Vegetarian Chickpea Curry with Turnips

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2013
Very tasty. A had a big turnip so automatically doubled the recipe. My only tip might be, don't go too crazy on the spice. Maybe do half of what's called for, taste, then add more if you like. Very spicy according to what's called for of the recipe itself. Still very good, can see myself making it again(with less curry powder), so for that 5 stars! The small changes I made were mostly to try to bring down the heat some. A drizzle of maple syrup, 1/2 cup milk, cornstarch and 1/3 cup rich to soak up extra liquid. Took about an hour and a half for me.

Microwave Mochi

Reviewed: May 18, 2013
Good basic starting point recipe. I fiddled with it a lot to try to mimic the bakery fresh coconut mochi I tried and fell in love with. Super similar texture. This recipe made about 12 medium large filled mochi balls. I only used 1/3 cup of sugar with good results. I also substituted 1/2 cup of water that the recipe called for with canned coconut cream as well as added 2 tbsp of dried coconut milk powder with the rice flour.I rolled the balls in finely shredded coconut. This saves me a 50 mile or so trip to the bakery that actually makes mochi so for that, I'll call it a sucess! +1 on less sugar than called for. Mochi is traditionally not THAT sweet. +1 on Cooking in 2 minute increments & Only cooking the mochi in the microwave for 6 minutes. I have a 900 watt microwave.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2013
This stuff is just great. Not only wonderful for most fish, but also makes quinoa very tasty! I wanted it a bit thicker so I added some cornstarch(about 1-2tsp. Keep in mind, by doing this leftover Ginger Glaze gets a bit "jelly" like.

Unbelievable Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2013
Basically, Cream of Chicken(or any other cream) makes almost anything taste great. Pretty good recipe. I really liked it. Tasty way to serve up your squash! I didn't use any sour cream as I just didn't have it but I found the casserole rich enough without it. Added 2 cups of chopped carrots. I also took the advice to add half of the breaded stuffing in with the casserole. All of it on top would of been too much. This goes into it might make again category.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2013
Slightly changed the recipe a little. Eased up on the flour and sugar it wanted. Only used 1/3 cup white, 3/4 cup brown, and 3/4 cup flour. Added a little extra quick oats. Same amount of butter. I used mostly Empire and threw in 3 Macintosh Apples. Wow. Became like an oatmeal cookie on top! Yummy and a smidgen less calories than original recipe. Apples are so sweet on their own don't be afraid to cut back on the sugar! Still comes out great. Everyone in my house loved it.

Bacon Spaghetti

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
My family has made this for years. Beloved "Nana Noodles" as we called them and still do. The reason some people are finding it dry is: DO NOT DRAIN BACON OIL, ADD IT TO PASTA. Maybe not all the oil, but I personally add most of the bacon grease. It will be great day of serving. A little dry maybe the day after. That's when you add a little olive oil. This recipe isn't for anybody counting calories. Have no shame in sprinked parmigian cheese on this.

Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2012
Just an update. This Fudge was a HIT. I have to now make more because everyone loved it so much. I also added a half cup, not 1/4 a cup butter. Does get soft at room temp for too long. Better served right out of fridge. I don't care if it's not snob "real" fudge. This stuff is GREAT!!!

Boyfriend Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2012
Fudgetastic. Out of the oven quite moist, gooey, make you want to chug a glass a milk. +1 on 13x9 pan. I can't imagine these really fitting in a 9x9. If you love fudgey brownies this is an excellent recipe. Very very sweet. One cup of sugar is probably enough for this recipe. Fudgey after they cool as well, but not as overwhelmingly thick as fresh out of oven. My recipe alterations: 1/2 tsp baking powder. Instead of adding another bag of chips at the end to fold in, I added about 1/2-2/3 a cup of chips. I also chopped a Crunch Bar into the batter. That didn't work as I'd hoped. No crispies survived. 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. Added 3 TBSP of unsweetened cocoa powder in flour mixture.Instead of 1.5 cups of white sugar I used 1 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Next time I'll probably cut down the sugar to 1 cup. I also omitted nuts.

German Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2012
Listen to what others have said, add additional liquid. I added a full box of chicken broth/stock(4cups), then filled it with water and added that water. Later on when lentils plumped it needed additional water(I also used a whole bag, 2.5 cups of lentils). I did not use caraway seed as I did not have it. Used semi-low sodium broth +1 on advice to use a low sodium version. Added 6 teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce. I always adjust recipes I make just slightly. Also added 2 cups potatoes. There's just not words how good this recipe is. If you really love lentils, this soup hits the spot. Better than I expected. The best soup I've made so far in my cooking journey. I can see myself defiantly making this again in the winter or maybe sooner. Really excellent flavor after melding all day together.
