Delicious Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
YUM! These were soft and chewy. I took the advice of others and substituted butter for shortening, lowered the temp to 350 for 10-11 minutes, and also added peanut butter chips. I like mine a little underdone, and these were perfect!

Country-Style Ribs

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
Good, but of course I made some changes: 1. I used tomato sauce instead of ketchup (I didn't have enough). 2. I didn't have cloves or allspice, so I omitted them. Instead, I used a few pinches of Chinese 5-spice. 3. I used red wine vinegar instead of cider (again, no cider vinegar). 4. I added two tablespoons of Dijon mustard. 5. I added a 1T honey to the sauce. I normally don't make this many changes, but I think the results were outstanding! I'm very particular about my barbecue sauce.

Easy Grape Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
This is the best grape salad!! It's so easy and delicious. It's better if you use toasted nuts in the salad. I make this whenever grapes are on sale!

Seven Layer Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
I just love this salad. I've had many other salads like it that end up too sweet. I think this one is perfect. However, I always omit the peas and increase some of the other ingredients. It's pretty easy to just throw in whatever veggies you like.

Cookie Salad I

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
This makes such an easy and delicious salad! I like to add more fruit to make it more like a fruit salad. It's good even without the cookies. You can also experiment with different types of pudding. I've made this many times and it's always a big hit.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2008
The first time I made these they just turned out ok. However, the next time we tried they were WONDERFUL!! I cut back on some of the chips, as I think they're a little too chocolate-y (which I never thought could be true). YUMMO!

Pork Roast With The World's Best Pork Loin Rub

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
Nice blend of sweet and savory. And I've even got some leftover rub for my next pork loin. I used 1/4 less sugar and more garlic to make it more to my taste. I will definitely use it again!

Bolognese Stuffed Bell Peppers

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
Wow! My partner and I thought these were the best stuffed peppers we'd ever eaten. I didn't have any pancetta, so I used bacon instead. Also, I substituted onions for the carrots and celery. As others reported, it was only enough to fill four green peppers, but that was fine with us! This one is DEFINITELY a keeper!!

This was a delicious and easy stuffing to make. I really appreciate how little time it took to make. It will definitely be a keeper for me. Generally, I don't like stuffing, but this was delicious!!

Cream Corn Like No Other

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
Not bad, but not quite what I expected. Next time it might need some changes.

Praline Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
This will be the third year I've made these sweet potatoes. Every year my family demands that I bring them. However, I felt the potatoes were a little lacking. This year I added about some five spice powder and fresh ground nutmeg (just enough to add a little bit of flavor). I think it gives the potatoes a little extra something.

Creamy Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2006
A moist and creamy banana bread for sure! I took some suggestions of reviewers and added extra banana. I also substituted walnuts for pecans and ground them in the food processor to make a fine paste and swirled through half of the bread. YUM! I think I may tweak it a little more next time, but this was really a delicious, simple recipe.

Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2006
I was suprised that this made very good chai. I didn't have any cardamom, so I left it out. Still, it was quite delicious, but I think next time I'll have to be sure I have all the spices.

Party Pinwheels

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2006

Spicy Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2006
Took this to a party for a co-worker. It was a HUGE hit! I wasn't sure how it would turn out at first, but I could not stop eating it the whole night! It made a lot, so be prepared to have a lot of it. This one will be made again and again.

Hummus III

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2006
This hummus was good, but I used only 3/4 of the tahini, as I thought the taste would come out too strong. It was fine without all the tahini. My friends complimented me on the wonderful appetizer.

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2006
I've made this recipe several times, and here are a few things I've noted when I make it. One, there is not enough garlic. I always double it. Then again, I REALLY like garlic. Second, there's not enough red pepper either. I also increase the red pepper a little more. I usually buy the 11-12 oz jar and use at least half. The downfall of this is that using the garbanzo beans as they are does not leave a smooth hummus like store bought. I've often substituted white beans for a can of the chickpeas when I make a double batch. It doesn't affect the taste much and makes it a little smoother. You could shuck all the skins off the garbanzo beans, but that's a lot of effort. I also sometimes add crumbled feta, which makes it even better. I usually serve this with carrots, celery and drizzle olive oil and garlic over cut pitas to toast my own pita chips. Yum!

Chili I

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2006
Wow! This is the BEST chili I've ever had. I received many compliments when I made it for friends. I substituted sausage for the sirloin, since that was all I had. I also used a variety of bean in the chili to add different levels of color. I'm making my second pot right now for my friends tomorrow, and I can hardly wait!

Sesame Seared Tuna

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2006
This was very good. I think it could have soaked in the sauce a little more. I also used light soy sauce, which did not add quite enough soy flavor. Still, it was quite tasty. I cooked it closer to one minute to get it medium rare (it looked a little too rare the first time). This one is definitely a keeper!
