Whipped Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
Wow! These are awesome! I didnt change anything except that we used colored sugar to decorate as I had no cherries. Definately the key was in the whipping. I whipped the butter first for about 3 or 4 minutes then slowly added the icing sugar over the course of a minute and whipped that for about 3 minutes. Then added flour a half cup at a time taking at least 3 min for each half then whipped for about another 4 or 5 minutes and wow...they are fantastic! I used a piping bag and made very small cookies about the size of a Canadian Toonie and because they were so small they needed only about 8 minutes in oven to get golden. First batch I over cooked slightly and they are still amazing! Thanks, this is a keeper!

Melt-In-Your-Mouth Short Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
I had to change it somewhat but the concept was wonderful. The grocery store had no short ribs so I settled with stewing beef. They also did not have the condensed soup that the recipe called for so I used a can of Campbells Cream of Mushroom and 1/2 package dry onion soup mix. Used all the rest of ingredients as listed in recipe. Cooked for 5 hrs on high and served over egg noodles. Was VERY tasty. Will make again.

Mom's Secret Recipe Beef Stew

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
Made this last night and my family LOVED it...I however think I will cut down on the stewed tomatoes by about 8 oz and increase the broth as I found it a bit too much tomato for a stew (hopefully my husband doesnt notice :) ) Also I added celery and to the flour I added Montreal Steak Spice for some extra flavor. Will definately be making again and will add fresh mushrooms next time as well (with the little adjustment).

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
Very good, everyone loved it. I used Golden Crisco in place of shortening and a splash of vanilla. Also noted to expect a very thick batter. I didnt think it would turn out but they were great, very fluffy. Would make again.

Chocolate Zucchini Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2006
I used 2 cup zuchinni, 1/2 cup butter, and 2 1/8 cup flour like a previous reader suggested and they were AMAZING! HOWEVER!, I highly recommend using the fine grate on your grater, I used the regular size and it didnt look appetizing. I told my daughter it was apple shreds or else she wouldnt have tried it and she love it. I have left over frozen shredded zucchinni that i wil put in my chopper to make small for the next batch. These will be a regular cookie for us. Thank you!

Stuffed Mushrooms I

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2006
This is an easy recipe if you like things on the bland side. I made this twice, first time by the recipe and it was rather dry and tasteless. The second time I omitted the garlic salt and used fresh garlic and salt and pepper. Then a dash of parsley, about a Tbsp+ of mayo, 1/4 cup shredded parmesan, ALL of the mushroom stems minced up, and about 1 Tbsp lemon juice and with all the additions it increases the size of recipe so you need more mushrooms. Now the next time I make it I will try doing just what I said but will omit the parmesan and increase the crab. Nevertheless now its a great recipe!! thanks for the base you offered to start with but definately needs a kick.

Mexican Layered Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2006
It was ok, I used lite sour cream and the left over turned very watery by the next morning. Next time would use reg sour cream. Also, wont use a whole pkg of taco mixnext time. It was wayyyy to strong and we like spicy foods. Will try again and I'm sure that will be more than 3 *'s.

Parmesan Spinach Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2004
AWESOME! Made it for a staff party and gave out the recipe to everyone! I did add a heaping tbsp of chopped garlic though for an extra kick and used a regular 'seasoned' stuffing mix rather than Italian and threw in a dash of Italian seasoning. Froze excellant too! Thanks for the great recipe. Am making it again for tonites New Years party by request!

Mediterranean Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2004
My husband loved it. I used a whole cut up chicken and I think using just the legs and thighs would have been best. They turned out better than the breast and back.

Buttery Cooked Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2004
They were nice for a change but definetly not something to make every time carrots are on the menu. My family didnt rave about them. Very easy prep though!

Krazy Garlic Trout

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2004
It was okay. It was quite lemony. I think I just prefer fish to be prepared anyway except baked.

French Toast I

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2004
I just made it and found it to be an ordinary recipe. I added a couple pinches of sugar. Maybe would have been better served with whipped cream and berries. Overall it was okay. May use the recipe again, not sure.

Autumn Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2004
This was FANTASTIC!! Great for fall and would make a great Christmas season desert as well. I made it as 1 1/2 recipe in the 9" springform pan and used light cream cheese for a lower fat version. I will definitely be keeping this one!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2004
Wow! That was great! It wasn't too crispy and yet it was by no means soggy! The only thing I may do differently next time is to use a smaller pan. I thought it was a bit thin in the 9x13 and I like a bit thicker crust. Also, after I covered the bottom with apples, I sprinkled the apples a little with cinnamon before putting on the saucepan mixture. AWESOME, will definetly be making this again.
