Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
These were very good but I didn't find that they were "sensational." I wouldn't throw away my good ol' reliable Tollhouse recipe in favor of this, but these were nice for a change, and people liked them. I didn't care much for the "processed" aftertaste (the pudding, I'm guessing), but we don't eat much processed food, so I think it stood out to me more than most. Very sweet, even with sugar reduced (that was my only change). Next time, I think I will try making a homemade pudding mix and putting that in instead. Thanks for a good recipe!

Grandma's Iron Skillet Apple Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2010
Awesome pie! I took it to a construction day out at my cousin's place and the guys just gobbled it up! I cut the sugar back (3/4 c. brown sugar on the bottom, and a scant 1/2 c. for the filling). I also tossed my filling together rather than just sprinkling the sugar on top. In the filling I added 2 T. flour and a sprinkle of nutmeg. I was unable to serve this right away since I was taking out to the guys, so my pan was one sticky caked-on rock-hard mess! To clean the cast iron, fill 3/4 with water, add a couple of squirts of DISHWASHER soap (not dish soap), and boil on the stove for 10-20 min. Turn off and let sit overnight. The gunk will slide right off the pan in the morning.

Butter Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
These are so good that I've been craving them ever since I first made them. Our only issue with these was that "burger" is kind of a stretch... we tried to eat these on buns with all the burger fixins and they just squished out the side of the bun every bite we took. The taste was incredible though! It was a good knife and fork "burger," but next time I'll probably go bun-less! :) I might try half beans half lentils to see if that firms them up a little more. Update: Cooked down some dried lima beans and also cooked some lentils. So I made half and half burgers. YUM! I also froze the leftover burgers and today we got them out of the freezer and put them right in the hot oil. I actually burned them a little bit because I was afraid the middle wouldn't defrost, but they came out with a nice crispy cornmeal crust and hot insides. Super quick and easy if you make them ahead and go freezer-to-frying-pan! Update #2: I've played around with these so much and I've decided they're pretty much fool-proof. My favorite add-in is cooked brown rice. They give these some texture and stick-to-your-ribs-ness that is really good. I've never omitted the cheese, but I can't really taste it, so I think you could save yourself some calories and fat by taking it out. I simply love these burgers. It's a shame my husband doesn't feel the same way.

Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookie Logs

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
Easy, quick, and got devoured in an instant. I'm glad I tried one of these BEFORE I left home, because I came back with an empty plate! Tons of compliments.

Southwestern Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
Wonderful! I didn't have quite enough chicken and it seemed to me that there was a LOT of sauce in the filling, so I put some leftover cooked rice (1-2 c. maybe?) in to kind of bulk up the filling. I also added a can of chopped green chiles, and instead of layering the mozzarella, I just put it in with the filling. This made quite a LOT of filling with the addition of the rice, so I made one 8x8 casserole and froze another. This got an A+ from Hubby and kids! I'll definitely make it again.

Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
Super yum! I doubled the recipe and used applesauce instead of oil, 2 c. white flour and 3 c. wheat, subbed about 1 1/2 c. honey for the sugar, and also added about 3/4 c. splenda (this was PLENTY sweet. I only added the splenda because I had some lying around that really needed to be used up). I didn't quite have enough apple but I added some extra applesauce and it was great! Will make again for sure!

Butternut Squash and Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
Good. My biggest disappointment was that the squash wasn't more of a dominant taste. We love butternut squash but could barely taste it in the chili - it tasted basically just like regular chili. I think that tomato paste would have been a better fit than sauce, but overall the flavor was good. I upped the spices, added red pepper, oregano, and sage. I also diced and roasted the squash first, hoping that the nice caramelized flavor would come through in the chili, but like I said, it disappeared among the beans and meat. However, a good way to use up extra squash, particularly for non-squash eaters! I would definitely make this again, but not waste all the time caramelizing the squash.

Squash Braid

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2010
I found this recipe when I was looking for a way to use up half of a leftover butternut squash. Unfortunately, I also found about five other delicious sounding recipes. I still wanted to try this bread, so I subbed pumpkin for the butternut, because I have a lot of pumpkin in my freezer. I also replaced the 1/4 c. of butter with 1/4 c. applesauce, used 2 c. of whole wheat and 1 c. of white flour. Even without any shortening and using mostly whole wheat, this was a deliciously soft bread. A little too "pumpkin-y" for my tastes but that's my fault. Butternut would have MADE this bread. Next time I'll use the real deal!

Ken's Perfect Hard Boiled Egg (And I Mean Perfect)

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2010
Ok... I came into this pretty skeptical. I've always had mixed results with boiled eggs. The best tip I ever got was the ice water bath after boiling, but that still didn't solve the problem of how long to cook, or eliminate that green ring around the yolk. As I made these, I kept thinking to myself "I can't believe I'm actually dirtying measuring cups for boiled eggs!" I have no clue what role the vinegar or salt plays in this, but it creates perfect, and I mean PERFECT eggs. I only had one tiny crack in one egg. Beautiful. Now I'm not afraid to bring deviled eggs to a party anymore! Thanks Ken.

Bacon and Tomato Cups

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2010
Really yummy! I used homemade biscuit dough and lined the muffin cups with dough, then filled with the mayo mixture. I used turkey bacon and light mayo, skipped the onion (hubby doesn't like), and I just added enough mayo to really hold the ingredients together. I also didn't have swiss cheese so I used a cheddar blend and it was fantastic! Thanks for a great idea!

Soft Sandwich Buns

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
Awesome! My go-to recipe has always been Vienna Rolls (from the Joy of Cooking), but I think I've just been converted! My husband asked me to find a recipe for sandwich buns that were softer than the Vienna Rolls tend to be. This was the first recipe I came across and I will look no further! I used part whole wheat and just regular all-purpose flour, as I didn't have any bread flour. I also don't have a bread machine so just did these by hand. Delicious! Thank you so much for a great recipe!

Honey Oatmeal Bread II

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
I have been making this bread for about 3 years now. Every time I try a new bread recipe, I always end up coming back to this one again! I do not use any shortening -- I use applesauce instead, and can never taste the difference. I also 1.5 this recipe and it makes 2 very nice size loaves. As is, my loaves always turned out very small. My only complaint about this recipe is that the dough is so sticky that it's very difficult to work with. But, it's our favorite bread, so we soldier through the sticky mess! :)

Tasty Lentil Tacos

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
These were good. I can't have any dairy right now, so I had to skip the sour cream and cheese, and I think that's what would have made these tacos! Still, a nice healthy meal that I plan on making again!

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
Very good banana bread! I am trying to lose my baby weight, so I made the following changes: halved the recipe, skipped the cinn/sugar sprinkling on the pan, used only 2 T. margarine and 1/4 c. applesauce. Cut the sugar down to 1/2 c. sugar, 1/2 c. honey. Used only 1 egg, subbed fat-free plain yogurt for the sour cream (but that was just because that's what I had on hand), used almost all whole wheat flour (except for 1/4 c., which I used white). Even with ALL these healthy changes, this yielded a sweet, hearty banana bread which the whole family loved! I baked this in an 8x8 pan and just cut into squares.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
These disappear in a flash every time I make them! Although most people (myself included) tend to think they taste more like a molasses cookie, not gingerbread, they're still delicious! This is a go-to recipe when I need to take cookies somewhere. Update: I'm notorious for trying to "healthify" any recipe, so I tried these with doing the applesauce/margarine sub (and that's all I did!). I did 1/2 applesauce, 1/2 margarine, and all I have to say is, DON'T. Let these cookies be your guilty indulgence. Make anything else healthy, but leave these as is, they are simply unbeatable.

Teriyaki Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
Soooo yummy! Hubby is an onion hater so that was the only thing I left off, but next time I think I'm going to put them on half because just thinking about this pizza with some caramelized onions on it has me drooling... :) Delicious! This will definitely go on our Friday night pizza rotation.

Slow Cooker Swiss Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
I was excited to try this since it has such high reviews, but we didn't end up caring for this at all. Tasted just like Mom's after-church pot roast: boring and bland. The steak never did get that tender and I left it in the crockpot for nearly 10 hours. I don't know if I did something wrong or if this just tasted bad to us because we don't care for pot roast! Sorry. Suffered through a couple of meals of it and tossed the rest. :(

WWII Oatmeal Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
Tasty, quick cookie. I subbed applesauce for 1/2 c. of the shortening, and just used 1/4 c. regular shortening. I also used half whole wheat and half white flour and cut the sugar to 3/4 c. and it was plenty sweet for us! My one year old couldn't stuff his face fast enough!

Six Week Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
These were good, but I should have paid more attention to how much batter this makes! I cut it in half, cooked about 18 muffins, and STILL had enough batter to fill a gallon pitcher (which I really don't have room for in my fridge... sigh). That said, these are tasty muffins, although to me they just taste exactly like bran cereal... in muffin form. Nothing exceptional. Since I love bran cereal, that's good for me. My husband was less thrilled but still eats them. With kids, I like the covenience of being able to keep the batter on hand, although next time I will not make so much! I also cut the sugar waaay back (by a few cups), added one cup of honey, and these were plenty sweet. Used some applesauce and some shortening, and part whole wheat/part white flour. Like I said, nothing to rave about, but a good standard muffin that definitely keeps well!

Moroccan Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
This was so good! It reminded me of Indian/Nepali lentils, so I served it with rice and a dollop of plain yogurt. Hubby kept saying "no, it's good, it's good..." but I think it was more of a 3.5-4 stars for him. Since this tasted so much like what I ate growing up in Asia, I gobbled it. I probably won't make it too often, just since the fam wasn't crazy about it, but it's definitely a yum on my charts! I used red and green bell pepper instead of onion (hubby won't eat), celery, and carrot (didn't have either). I also upped the spices a bit.
