Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2004
After throughly researching peach cobbler recipes, this one was the winner! I read each of the reviews and decided to try it on my own. I did add a teaspoon more of the cornstarch in the peach batter to make sure it wasn't too runny. It worked out perfectly! It was my first time making a dessert from scratch and I entered it in a contest and won. I've already gotten requests from family members to make them their own batches.

Prize-Winning Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2005
This recipe was great. It did make a little more than 4 dozen cookies. It made about 6 for me. Also, I made an iced lemon glaze to brush over the cookies because they really didn't have a distinctive taste. I just mixed 1 tsp of lemon juice, 2 tsps of water and 1/2 cup of powdered sugar together and brushed over the cookies once they were done. My husband really doesn't like lemon desserts, but loved these cookies.

Shrimp Fried Rice I

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
nice light flavor compared to heavy oil taste from restaurants. did use more sesame oil. cooked rice in programmable rice cooker (to save time), cooked eggs in sesame oil, then cooked shrimp in the sesame oil, then mixed all together in the skillet with more sesame oil and soy sauce for color. Family liked. will make again.

Fresh Semolina and Egg Pasta

Reviewed: May 28, 2011
I agree with many other commentators. This was a great recipe. No concerns with the recipe itself, but if you don't have a pasta machine, the preparation time from rolling out the dough and beyond is imense. It took my husband and I 1 hour to roll out all of the dough and make ravioli (with all other ingredients prepped). The thicker the pasta, the longer it takes to cook. I ended up making basic noodles after my pound of ground turkey was gone.

Summer Squash Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2011
Delicious! Did take the advise of making sure to squeeze out all liquid from squash, then let dry for about 6 hours on paper towels in the sun. Edges were crispier than the center, but wonderful flavor. May even make this into breadsticks next time. I'm collecting squash from my gardener friends to make more of these!

Zucchini Spice Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
Wonderful Recipe! Great way to use up the rest of my applesauce excess. My neighbors loved it as well and requested the recipe.

Cheddar Chicken Spaghetti

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
Great meal. Sort of tastes like chicken noodle soup in a casserole style. Everyone ate it and very little leftovers. I did omit the pimentos and substituted 1c of mozzerella and 1c of cheddar because that's what i had on hand. Served it with dinner rolls and a side salad.

Squash-Apple Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
Really sweet. My husband said that it tasted like the inside of a peach cobbler. I did double the sauce ingredients to ensure vege/fruit coverage. Will definitely make this dish again. It was served with salmon and rice. It was more like a sauce/ chutney. It was terrific over the salmon and actually made the entire meal taste much better. It was also an added bonus to scent the house.

Just okay. Not the best to us. It was a pretty basic dish.

Lasagna Toss

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
Was ok. Maybe next time I'll add garlic to the skillet before cooking the meat. Once it was done, it missed the garlic flavoring per my husband. Quick and easy dish though. Served with salad and toasted bread with butter.

Jerk Grilled Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
We made these for New Years to go with our Caribbean themed meal. They turned out okay. Not too spicy. More like a very seasoned chicken wing. We also baked them in the oven due to the extreme temperatures in WI this time of year. I thought the wings would be dry in the oven, but the marinade bakes off and they were perfected moist with a slightly crisp skin. The sauce left in the pan went WONDERFULLY with the cilantro lime rice from this website. To get more of a kick, i may add a little more jalepeno next time (i must admit that we only used 2 jalepeno peppers without the seeds due to us have small kids around). Overall, very tasty.

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
Good food! I agree with the comment about the cornstratch and water ratio being off as the sauce thickened fairly quickly and was too thick to be a sauce over our rice. However, it was tasty. Even my ultra picky 2 year old had a 3rd helping.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2012
I've been searching for a great pancake recipe for a long time and this one is definitely a winner in my house! First couple of cakes were thinner than the rest. But after that batch, they were great. My 5 year old ate 3 by himself! Fluffy, but will the crispy edges like we like. Wonderful flavor. I ate mine without anything on them.

Simple Maple Syrup

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
This was pretty good. I did use 1/2 brown and 1/2 white sugar and used vanilla instead of maple flavoring. My husband thought it wasn't as sweet as maple, so he liked it. I make some fried sweet potatoes around the holidays and the syrup was exactly the same as what the sweet potatoes are cooked in.

Cheesy Baked Eggs

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2012
Very Yummy for my family! I used triple cheddar and mozzarella cheese in place of the pepper-jack and just sprayed the dish with olive oil instead of melted butter. Really cheesy. Didn't quite take the full hour, more like 40 minutes and it was perfectly browned. I will try other variation in the future like added spinach and bacon to the dish to make it a one dish meal.

Corn Tortilla Chips

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
Based on the feedback, I decided to give baking a try. Yummy and healthy! I baked some old corn tortillas (cut in to chip size wedgest) at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Prior to baking, I sprayed olive oil spray on them and seasoned them liberally with salt, pepper, onion powder, chili powder. Surprisingly, they were crispy like chips. To reheat, just pop into a paper bag in the microwave for 15 minute increments until heated to your liking.

Chicken with Peas and Quinoa

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2012
Alright. Was first time cooking quinoa and I think it went well. Didn't have chicken broth, so subbed beef broth. Omitted peas (family doesn't like them) and used some basic spaghetti sauce from the cabinet. Didn't take long at all to cook. Accidently cooked my chicken all the way through in the first step, but did allow a little time for the chicken to simmer with the quinoa.

Creamy Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
Was okay. Seemed like it was missing something. I did double the spices and baked 2 pies, but even my hubby said that it needed butter or sugar. Wasn't sure which. Maybe next time, i'll add it and update my comment.
