Blue Cheese Burgers

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
Nice - but if you like blue cheese flavor add a bit more or you won't really taste it. I mixed 2 lbs (80/20) hamburger with 1 lb ground turkey. Worked great - grilled nicely.

Slider-Style Mini Burgers

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
It was a bit funky - certainly not a terrific meal by any means. I followed directions - wish I would have halved it - now I have all this meat that no one will eat.

Beer Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
Ok - I will have to admit, I did not make this recipe with beer and I used a box pancake mix (the kind you just add water to). I followed the advice of some and used root beer. My kids were in love. I have to admit - they are pretty good. Nice and fluffy with just a hint of root beer flavor.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
Nice recipe. I only had 3 bananas so I halved the recipe and it turned out fine. I wish I would have had one more banana for a little more flavor. My husband loved the crust - I also sprinkled sugar on top of the batter before baking and it made a terrific top crust. The bread was very dense and moist. I probably could have cooked it 10 minutes longer - but it was a hit. I also baked it in one large bread pan at 325. Thanks, I've found my new banana bread recipe.

Easy Chocolate Covered Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
These were ok - my family liked them better when not dipped in chocolate. They were nice and moist - I could taste the flour though.

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2010
This recipe was 4.5 stars. The chicken ended up being kind of loose - Maybe decreasing the water would help. My kids thought it was too spicy and didn't eat much. Nice flavor though - and if you don't like spicy food you could modify the recipe some. Update: I made these the other night and somehow forgot to add the cream of chicken soup and sour cream - they were awesome!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
This was a pretty good recipe. I ended up using 2 tsp of baking powder in place of the cream of tartar because that is all I had. I am not sure if that made a difference in the final product. And I just realized that I did not even add the baking soda - oops! My cookies came out a little crispy around the edges and nice and soft in the middle. They spread out nicely and puffed up a little. The recipe is worth making again. Be sure to not over bake these.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
These pancakes were very dense and disappointing regarding flavor. The pumpkin did not shine as I had hoped. The trick to getting them cooked properly is not having the pan too hot and spreading out the batter a little. Mine cooked through but the end result tasted a bit doughy / wet. My boys liked them but everyone else wasn't as excited. I would love to find a similar recipe that is a little lighter in texture and maybe more pumpkin tasting.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
This recipe was ok - it was easy enough but kind of bland and tomato sauce tasting. It is better with a flavorful mexican dish but not that great on it's own

Easy Canned Venison

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
In the past I have done something similar but only used kosher salt. The minced garlic and onion add to it. I love having the meat canned - it is super easy to make deer and noodles or stews/soups

Magic Cookie Bars II

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
This recipe was good but the bottom "crust" was very soggy and unappealing. The flavor was good though. Good enough to warrant making it again with some modification to the gram cracker and margarine components. I followed the recipe except added an extra 1/2 cup of gram crackers and used pecans instead of walnuts.

Out of this World Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
This was my first time cooking a whole turkey - and my first time using a brine. I had a 22lb turkey and I brined it in my old water cooler that didn't have a lid. kept it in my spare fridge for 24 hours. Patted it dry and rubbed with butter. When the bird first started cooking I could smell Worcestershire - very strong - and I panicked thinking I was going to have a turkey that tasted like Worcestershire. I kept the turkey uncovered for the first half of the cooking time until the skin was nice and brown then tented with foil. Took 4 hours at 325. Absolutely the best turkey I have ever eaten. Nice and moist with a lot of flavor. Don't hesitate to try this recipe - it's a keeper. After I already had it in the brine someone told me I should not have brined because my turkey was already injected with some sort of solution. I was told I was going to have a salt lick. But it turned out great... Not salty at all.

Sesame Beef

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
This recipe was not anything spectacular. I finished it off with some broccoli and mushrooms. Our big problem with it was that the meat was on the sweet side - not appealing at all

Mini Pineapple Upside-Down Cakes

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
Great recipe. Tasted just like the original. I did not have jumbo muffin tins though - so make sure you put tin foil or something under the pan - it ran over a little and made a stinky mess in my oven. I did 12 regular cupcake sized ones. I cut out one section of the pineapple rings and they fit perfectly. With the remainder of the batter chopped the pineapple and put them in my mini muffin pans - worked great. Just make sure you flip them out as soon as they come out of the oven.

Yummy Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
While this was cooking I started having serious doubts anticipating what the end result would be like. My whole house smelled like sauerkraut. In fact my husband and kids were certain that was what I was cooking. But the end result was very good and tasted nothing like I was thinking would. It was simple and quick and I liked that it had very few ingredients. I only had about a cup of italian dressing on hand so I used that and maybe a little under an 1/8 Cup of light soy sauce. It worked out fine - i just flipped the chops every 5 minutes or so until done.

Chocolate Brittle Surprise

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
My grandma gave me this recipe - she called it Christmas Bark. You would never guess that the crackers are the base of this. You do have to watch it when cooking - there is a fine line between not cooked enough and overcooked.

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
Great soup. The only thing I did differently was to use reduced sodium chicken broth in place of the water and bullion cubes. I did not add the salt either. I think in the future I will add more beans and corn - it makes a whole lot of soup and I ended up with a lot of broth left over after everyone scooped the goodies out of the bottom.
