Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2007
I ended up adding a tbsp vanilla and cinnamon, as well as chocolate chips and crushed walnuts. I then made muffins and baked them at 325 degrees for 25-30 minutes. They are dense but very good. Great little snack if you are on the go in the morning.

Pumpkin Cookies I

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2007
I started off by mixing all dry ingredients and then realized the sugar was supposed to get creamed with the shortening. I also used raisins vs the butterscotch chips. I should note that I made my cookies a bit bigger and they needed to cook 20 minutes + at 350. Great treat for the fall!!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2007
Of all the recipes I've tried, this is the one I continue to go back to and love it. The only change I make is to add a tbsp of vanilla. Also, right after the pancake is poured, I will either add banana slices, chocolate chips, or blueberries to the top.

Haddock Bubbly Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
I will say it's easy to make and it offers a nice alternative to the typical New England style Baked Haddock dishes. I do suggest covering with foil as to not burn the cheese and brocoli. I will probably make this again and next time, will add some shrimp to the dish for variety. I served it with a side or risotto and it was very good.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
These were excellent. I made some with craisins, and others with chocolate chips. Great texture and just the right density for a scone.

Cafeteria Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
I made this as instructed minus the hot sauce. I also bought parmesan croutons and crushed them up vs using plain old bread crumbs. It added a better crunch and flavor to it. As for baking, the broiling at the end is great as it gives it the top the extra crunchy texture. Overall, I am giving it a 4 as I don't think I'm done tweaking the recipe or searching for something better. Maybe it was the Worcestershire sauce...don't know yet, but not bad for an easy meal.

Garlic Prime Rib

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
I made this for Christmas and it was awesome. The seasoning was great although I may cut back a little on the pepper to suit my taste. The thyme works very well with the garlic. I pulled the 7 lb roast out at 135-138 (can't tell as the lowest reading on my thermometer goes to 140) and it did continue to cook and jump to 142 F. I would remove the roast sooner in the future for a little closer to rare.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Following a few recommendations, I increased the flour to 1/3 C and also added a 1/2 C wine. I wasn't blown away by the taste and maybe that had to do with the 1/2 Tspn of salt. I ended up adding extra to improve the taste. I also think next time, I will eliminate the wine and go for a tomato paste addition. But I definitely stayed away from browning meat as the slow cooker is made to keep things easy and the meat turned out perfect.

Fabulous French Loaves

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
This is a great recipe. If I had more time each weekend, I'd never buy bread again. I ended up making the 2 loaves and coated one with sesame and salt, and the other with garlic powder. I'm looking forward to adding different herbs to the mix in the future. Update: I've made several loaves and one thing I've learned is when letting the dough rise, put it in the oven with a cup of boiling water. This creates an ideal warm and humid environment. Another great tip is to premix any dry ingredients in with the flour ahead of time. Lately, I've taken 1 or 2 tbsp of rosemary and garlic powder and added it to the flour ahead of time. Next on my list - shredded asiago cheese....i love this recipe!

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
Like the recipe. Easy to make and prep ahead of time, then just heat and serve. I don't know if I would use as much sour cream next time, but that's just's my own taste. Everyone loved them.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
I made these last night without a bread machine. The dough didn't rise as much as I thought it would and maybe that was because I used a dough hook. I may try mixing by hand next time to avoid overworking the dough. But the taste and texture were great. Added garlic to top them off. Will use an egg wash next time to brown them a bit more.

Bolognese Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
I ended up browning the meat and cooking the bacon and tossing everything in a slow cooker. I also used 1/3 C red wine vs white and tomato paste vs the sauce and skipped the celery for personal taste. Makes a hearty sauce for pasta, but will continue to look for something else.

Baked Pork Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2008
These are excellent and I will add them to my favorites. I chopped shrimp vs using the pork as my wife is vegetarian. I probably will play with the filling next time too, and add bean sprouts and maybe mushrooms. Definitely many combinations out there, so try them out. Of course, I will also do a 1/2 batch using pork for myself!!

Baked Ziti II

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
Made this last night and it was very good. I ended up browning 1 lb sausage, as well as sauteeing some mushrooms with garlic. Added those into the mixture with ziti, ricotta, and mozz. Put the mixture into a pan lined w/ sauce and dumped more sauce on top. Covered with mozz and then foil and baked for 30-35 minutes. I took the foil off for an additional 10 minutes to brown the top and it was awesome. Keep in mind that if you add extras in like I did, make sure to add extra sauce as it soaks up quickly!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
This is a keeper for me. I did go on a couple of recommendations from others and add 2 tsp of baking powder and the 2 Tbsp of vanilla. I only made half the recipe, and in doing so, used 2 C of flour vs the suggested 2 1/4. The mix just looked like it was ready and I was hoping to avoid getting too much flour in there as some reviews had mentioned the recipe was too cake like. Mine wasn't. One lesson I found out through baking is to keep the cookies small as they will get a nice crisp on the outside, but stay super soft in the middle as the recipes says. If you use a larger spoonful of mix, then 12 minutes will get you one soft cookie all around. A keeper for me!!! thanks!

Baked Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
Considering I used an egg wash vs the butter, I probably am doing the original author a dis-service by rating it a 4, but maybe next time, I'll sneak in a bit of butter for a few of the nuggets. Other than that, I would reduce the amount of basil or completely eliminate it. The rest of the mix seemed great. Perfect for dunking in BBQ sauce, honey, or whatever you prefer...

House Fried Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
Using the 3 Tbsp of sesame oil is what makes this recipe work. I ended up also buying a bag of mized frozen vegetables, heated them up in boiling water, and then drained them. Used all shrimp and if I did this over, I would use 2 eggs vs 1. It's still not as good as the fried rice I've had in China (their's is super light and fluffy), but this recipe is my go to in the US.

Feta Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
Great recipe. Made this last night and used plain feta, fresh basil and diced tomatoes. I also added some garlic seasoning to the chicken before adding the bread crumbs. But I will say that drizzling a little butter over the stuffed chicken prior to baking adds a ton of flavor. Just don't over do it!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
It's a very tasty soup and great for a winter night. I eliminated the water and used a total of 4 cups chicken broth. In the future, I would substitute a can of diced tomatoes vs the whole to make the prep easier. Top with some shredded cheddar and good to go. Update - made again and used diced tomatoes and also added some red beans.
