Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
These were the best pumpkin cookies I've ever tried. I did change a few things though: I used fresh not canned pumpkin that I baked and pureed. I also added some ginger, nutmeg, and cloves to the spices. These cookies didn't make it 12 hours in our house and I already have requests for more.

Simple Swiss Chard

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2007
Pretty good overall. Not sure if I didn't like because of the chard or not. This was the first time I'd tried swiss chard.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
Very easy to make. I took previous comments and used herbs in the dough I used for the pizza. I used plain dough for the breadsticks. Overall amoung the best pizza dough I've made myself.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
A little too sweet but perfect. Next time I think I'll use half the honey.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: May 30, 2007
Really quite tasty. I didn't add the garlic until the last five minutes as previous posters suggested. I also mixed the garlic with about a tablespoon of the oil and let it set while the cauliflower roasted.

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: May 30, 2007
This was pretty good. I use bold and spicy mustard because I didn't have dijon. I also used worchestire sauce instead of steak sauce. I marinated the chicken for 3 hours as previous posters suggested. My kids ate it all and loved it. My husband thought it was too mustardy. I thought it was okay. Not sure if I'd make it again but like I said the kids really loved it.

Pasta e Fagioli I

Reviewed: May 25, 2007
Not too bad. I added ground beef so it would be a little more like Olive Garden's soup. I really liked this soup but there was a spice missing and I still haven't figured out what. I think I'll keep trying this until I figure out what's missing.

Sorta Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: May 25, 2007
This was an okay dish. Everyone ate all their food but it was missing something. I added extra worchestire sauce but it was still bland. Next time I think I'll take the advice of others and season the steak before coating it in flour. I also think I'll add mushrooms to the dish. Another thing I'd probably add is an envelope of dried onion soup mix to add just a little more flavor. Not bad for a starting recipe but you need to tweak it a bit.

Elbows and Ground Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2007
Pretty good recipe although I felt it was missing something. I added some garlic to help with the flavoring but it was still missing something.

Enchilada-Style Burritos

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
Made the sauce to use with my own homemade burritos and it was really good. Much better tasting than canned sauce. I added a little more chili powder and cumin than was listed and used garlic salt instead of regular salt.

Boston Baked Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
I only use this recipe now. I use bacon ends and pieces instead of bacon slices and just start to cook them before adding them to the bean mixture.

Simmered Swiss Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
This was okay. It was lacking something but I haven't figured out what else it needed. We served it over rice and I thickened the tomato's up so it was likea gravy.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2007
Love this recipe. I think I make this at least 2 times a month. I make extra sauce so I can mix it in with rice.

Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2007
This was an okay recipe. I didn't have tomatoes so I used a red pepper. I also added green onions. My husband who dislikes ranch dressing really liked this dish.

Black-Eyed Pea and Bacon Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2006
Not a fan of black eyed peas but my husband loves them. This recipe was tasty enough for me to really enjoy and even my picky hubby liked it too. Next time I'll use peppered bacon just to give it a bit more kick.
