Miss Betty's Super Quick Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2014
Quick & Simple!! :-) To make self rising flour: 1 cup flour, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt. I used butter & not mayonnaise, Im out of mayo for some reason & its my favorite condiment. I substituted butter & it turned out great but a little salty, I have to try it with mayo too though. I'm making more now, minus the salt & dont forget to roll them or they turn out clumpy, there is no scooping involved.

Curried Tofu Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2014
I made the sauce exactly as written. I didn't have any of the other ingredients except the carrots & tofu. I was just trying to figure out how to cook my tofu & get rid of some carrots, instead of cooking tofu the way I always do. The sauce was really good over the baked tofu & shredded carrots. I'll have to add other ingredients next time I make this. I baked the tofu 10 minutes longer to make it a bit crunchy.

Simple Roasted Chickpea Snack

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2014
I doubled this recipe & instead of using a can of chick peas. I boiled dry chick peas & dried them. I was snacking on them just like that & really enjoying them. I cooked these exactly as written & they were crunchy how a lot of people wanted. I really didnt like them with the seasoning or crunchy. Im missing my raw cooked chick peas :-( Hopefully my husband likes them roasted, cause he wouldnt touch them raw cooked. I think these would be really good with wasabi powder, but not roasted.

Grandma's English Muffin Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2014
I made this with out a bread maker. Mixed all the dry ingredients - except the yeast. Mixed the milk & water in a small bowl & put it in the micro for 2 minutes, put the yeast in & let that sit for about 10 minutes. Then put the yeast mixture in the dry ingredients & mixed it with a spoon & then with my hands. I covered it & let it rise for 1 hour. This dough was really fluffy. I do eventually want to try this in a coffee can, but I rolled it out & it made it 6 english muffins to my suprise & I made the rest of the dough into a loaf. Let everything rise some more while the oven pre heated. Put them in the oven at 400° for 8 minutes & flipped for 6 minutes. & well that was too much time for the muffins. I left the loaf in for 5 more minutes. These were really fluffy & I got the crevases in the bread, but it lacks the english muffin flavor. I have made the recipe called English Muffins countless times & although Ive never gotten the crevases, its got that good flavor of english muffins. I think I will try adding a bit of baking powder to my go to english muffin recipe & maybe get those crevases we're shooting for. I love the texture of these though. After making this recipe, I give them each a 4. & I dont have time to change the other review so Im giving a 5.

Creamed Eggs on Toast

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2014
I never had this before, it was really good, kinda a twist on egg salad. I liked the chicken bouillon in it. I think I already memorized the recipe I liked this so much.

Sweet Pea and Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2014
This was so good that I couldn't put it down to write a review till I finished my whole bowl. I only had spiral noodles on hand, but will make this again with shell pasta & make a "green pearl pasta" sounds so cute! I used chopped red bell pepper cause I love them. Didnt have any onion so I used some dashes of dried onion flakes. Some more dashes of chilli powder, cause I like chilli powder in dishes that use mayo. Omitted the hot pepper sauce. Some salt & pepper. Also only used 8 oz of noodles & a little over 10 oz sweet peas, I liked that ratio, it would have been too much noodles had I used 12 oz. I would love to try this with cooked ham sliced in tiny cubes the size of the peas.

Amazing Slow Cooker Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
This cake is addicting, It's in the crock pot for the 3rd time this week. It's fluffy & moist, so delicious. Today I added 1 cup of crushed walnuts to make it a bit healthier & Im craving walnuts. Also used 3/4 wheat flour. Would have used apple sauce for veggi oil but none on hand. I am completely addicted to this cake, the recipe written as is & also the healthy version. I used 3/4 wheat flour the 2nd time I made this & I couldn't tell the difference.

Dad's Simple Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2013
I used this as a base recipe. Replaced veggi oil with olive oil, red wine with beef broth. Omitted the garlic. Added a dash of garlic powder, onion powder, celery salt & lemon pepper. We'll see how it comes out tomarrow. I really cant rate it cause I changed it so much. The recipe sounds great & I will have to try it as is sometime. I didn't have red wine & really didnt want to chop garlic right before going to sleep & I dont like veggi oil with meat, just tastes weird to me. I already have this recipe memorized though.

Carrot Cake Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2013
This was my first attempt at making any type of carrot cake or cookies & I'm making these for everyone for Easter. These tasted like cake because they're so fluffy & soft, but are a cookies. I made a lot of changes because I didn't have a lot of the ingredients plus personal preference & I've always thought the pineapple in all the carrot cake recipes was weird so I never tried. Here are my changes, I 1/2 the recipes because I never make a full batch the 1st time I make anything. I omitted the pineapple, raisins, nuts. Added 1 cup carrots & snuck in 1/4 of sweetened shredded coconut I love coconut but others dont, also added 1/8 nutmeg. 1 cup reg flour, 1/2 cup wheat flour. All butter, no shortening. & everything else the same for the cookie dough. Frosting I created my own & used confectioners sugar, I slowly added heavy whipping cream & a dash of vanilla. I frosted the tops of all the cookies & I absolutely looooved these. I know I cant rate the recipe off of my changes, but thank you for the recipe & thanks to the4taals because without that review I'd have been lost with too many carrots on my hands.

BLT Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2013
This was good but the recipe calls for 2 tomatoes & I used 7 roma tomatoes. An entire onion was waay too much, I used less than 1/2 but I probably wont put any next time I make this, it tasted too much of onion. I made some ranch dip mix & used about 1 1/2 cups. The crumbling the bacon was a pain & I might use precooked bacon bits next time. I did the crumbling over each serving, the problem with that is everyone wants to eat the bacon, without the salad. I tried mixing some in a single serving & stuck it in the fridge over night, I dont see why the recipe doesn't just call for the bacon to be mixed in it. I also added cabbage, but I really want to try this with cucumbers & olive, no cabbage.

Peppermint Lace Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2013
I really loved these cookies. It alarmed me though when I first starting preping them that there's so much butter, I will cut back the butter by 1/2 & I think maybe get the same results. These are really yummy though, I made some to give to the leasing office tomarrow for Christmas Eve, I ate 8 to myself when they came out the oven. You dont need to keep them 3 inches apart though, 1 inch is enough room. There's no baking powder or soda they dont rise, they stay the same size as you plop them on there. I did 1 cup white flour & 1/4 cup wheat flour to make them healthier & no one can tell :-) Wonderful Christmas cookie I will make these years to come I love them.

Chicken and Red Bell Pepper Salad Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2013
I love this. I have been craving red bell peppers & I've always loved canned chicken instead of tuna. So I used canned chicken. This was fabulous, add bell peppers & heavy whipping cream to my regular sandwich :))))) awesome. Chili powder is good also, but the red bell peppers tops that. Im going to try it in a tortilla with some cabbage, going a bit along with another review only I dont have lettuce. Yaaay I love it.

Gingerbread Whoopie Pies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2013
The gingerbread didnt rise. I used a scoop & these were 2x the size they should be. The filling was too liquidy & I tried to save it with more powdered sugar but I didn't want to use the rest of my powdered sugar. It was some what better after sticking it in the fridge for a bit. These were a disaster & no one ate a complete cookie but me. Everyone took a few bites & didn't like them, lucky to my sweet tooth I ate the entire batch. I'm going to try another gingerbread recipe & frosting, I'll stay away from gingerbread whoopie pies. I didn't read till later to weigh the flour & it would have been an option but I'll pass, thanks anyway.

Cream-Braised Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2013
These were really good. I made them with frozen brussel sprouts. Next time I wont let the heavy whipping cream reduce so much, or put more. I really liked the sauce. I added pepper when I put them in the butter & with the salt. Where there's lemon, there needs to be pepper. I will make these again.

Kyle's Favorite Beef Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2013
I will cut back by 1/2 of the onion soup mix. Omit the mushrooms & wine, replace wine with beef broth. Add celery & use whole baby potatoes & whole baby carrots, only use 1/2 c onion chopped in cm pieces. I will make this again, with my changes & might try with non alcoholic wine sometime but not mushrooms, Ive never had stew with mushrooms & dont plan to start. I just changed this up a bit to what my vision of the perfect beef stew is. soo good.

Coconut Cream Cake I

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2013
I could not make these work as cup cakes, I worked my way around it & was able to make it semi-okay. Pouring the sweetened condensed milk & coconut mixture over the cupcakes is what made me unable to hand these out to people. I ended up peeling the wrapper off all of them out of the oven & poured the mixture over each cupcake, I will try making this as a cake if I like the cup cakes, they're chilling now & waiting for frosting. I used my favorite white cake recipe the "Simple White Cake" from this site & then just followed along from there. This recipe is great, just not a cupcake recipe. Ive been craving coconut flakes, so excited to try these tomarrow morning.

Southern Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2013
I made these for Thanksgiving & they're soo yummy. It looked like too little butter & too much sugar but it was perfect & I also used 1/2 as much nutmeg. I used fresh sweet potatoes & Im going to make this again only put it in a casserole dish & melt mini marshmallows on top. Yesterday I made it completely on the stove & had no marshmallows anyway.

Wedding Cake Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2013
I never use shortening, only butter. This tasted way too much of butter & it was too watery. I found this out after I had put it in the pipeing bag or I'd have added more sugar to it to thicken it up, I iced my cup cakes anyway & put them in the fridge hoping that will do the trick. I chose this recipe because it had no egg, Im saving my last egg for another recipe. I wont be using this recipe again.
