Easy Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2013
I make this recipe regularly since it's my husband's favorite ice cream and now my kids'. First of all, I often change the 2% for Winder Farms skim milk and turns out wonderful. I've also done just heavy cream and half and half and that works too, just creamier. It's a forgiving recipe plus you can play around until you find the consistency you like most. I've done the mini chocolate chips and I don't like it as much as buying blocks of dark chocolate and chopping it up finely. We also add about half a teaspoon more of mint since we love mint!

simplylo's Oven-Baked Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
Excellent! I didn't have dry sherry so I just substituted white wine. I marinated the chicken for about 5 hours and breaded the chicken with the same recipe but since I didn't have wheat germ I used panko (I had it on hand and you can't get more Asian than that!) instead. It was delicious. I think I even cooked it too long and still came out juicy. Yum. Can't wait to make it again.

Watermelon and Strawberry Lemonade

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
I have a huge watermelon and felt like a watermelon drink would quench the thirst this hot summer day in Vegas. I reduced the sugar to half and used a little less water and it was perfect. I added a splash of vodka to mine and this will be my summer drink of choice now.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
I normally make Banana Nut and Ginger Bread but didn't have a dark beer on hand so I made this instead. I thought it had a great flavor and enjoyed the sugar dusting on the pan, but I'm still partial to the other recipe. I changed the temp to 350 and cooked for just over an hour.

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
I followed the reviewer by microwaving the sugar syrup in the microwave. Then I added ice to water to make up the last 7 cups. I ended up adding an extra half cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice to make it more lemony. My daughter loved making this with me.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
Like most people, I've made many brownies throughout my life so far; boxed and from scratch. These were tasty and easy to make. Like another reviewer, I did as little stirring as possible (counted 20 strokes) so they wouldn't end up like cake. That meant I beat my eggs before adding them to the saucepan to make sure they were well mixed in. They weren't too dense or crumbly like some end up either. I did add coarsely chopped walnuts because we love them with nuts. I didn't make the frosting, it doesn't need it. It's rich enough without it. This is going to be my regular brownie recipe now. Thanks!

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
I cooked them at 400 degrees as recommended and they came out perfect. My daughter who doesn't eat home made fries normally even ate these. I'll be using this as our regular fry recipe.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
Impressed! One reviewer commented on how skimpy it was so I kept everything the same except decreased the noodle amount to 6 and put it into an 8x8 dish. I used only 8oz homemade veggie stock, I used non-marinated artichoke hearts, added chopped fresh basil, dried rosemary, and thyme to the mixture, 7oz of fresh spinach, and regular feta (added a little basil, oregano, garlic powder to it). It was wonderful! My 2.5 year old had 4 servings at dinner then the next day for lunch had 2 servings. I think this will become our regular lasagna dish from here on out. Others suggested alfredo sauce instead, it doesn't need it! Just think of all the extra calories you save by using a tomato based sauce!

Rosemary Slices

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
What an interesting cookie. Followed the recipe as written and thought it was good. You really have to have tea or coffee with this cookie. One of my daughters took a bite and wouldn't have another. I froze one log for about a week and didn't taste as good as the first batch, so I wouldn't recommend freezing any portion of it.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
My husband and I really liked this dish! I followed the recipe except I only had half a can of coconut milk so I opened a can of coconut cream and used half of that as well. I did drain the can of tomatoes as another reviewer suggested. It was great! Not too hot, a subtle coconut flavor leaning more towards curry. I'll make this again.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
I scaled this down to 3 servings since I had just over 1 lb of stew meat. I did as one reviewer suggested by adding the flour and seasoned salt in a bag, toss the meat, then brown before adding to crock pot. I used homemade veggie stock (instead of beef) and a little sherry to the sauce. Kept everything the same and turned out good. I felt like there was something missing from the dish but my husband and I were very satisfied with the dish. My kids wouldn't eat it though.

Banana Oatmeal Cookie

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
These just came out of the oven and are wonderful. Here's what I did. I only had 1/2 cup shortening so I added 1/4 soft butter. I had three small frozen bananas I thawed and used juices as well. I used half white half brown sugar. Half whole wheat half all purpose flour. I didn't have nutmeg and increased cinnamon to 1tsp. I left out the nuts and did one tray plain and the rest with 1/3 cup mini choc chips. The banana flavor is great (not weak, not too over powering) and I can see leaving out the chips and nuts all together. A keeper recipe! I'll be freezing the majority of the dough so I have my fingers crossed that they freeze well too.

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2009
This was pretty good. We aren't huge caper fans but had some left over from another recipe and wanted to find a way to use them up. We'll make this again.

Macadamia Nut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2009
I reduced the white chips to 1cup and that was perfect for us. I didn't grease the pan and I was careful to not let the cookie get too brown otherwise they were pretty crispy. Pull them out when the edges just begin to brown, let them sit on the pan for another minute so they won't be too soft on the cooling rack. Wonderful cookie, I'll be sure to use this recipe again.

Dol Sot Bi Bim Bap

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
Made this last night for the first time. My husband lived in Korea for a year and this was one of his favorite dishes to order. I scaled it down to four and made as directed (even the raw egg which my husband insisted on). It was great but way too sweet. Once we added a spoon full of kuchujang to each of our bowls, it was perfect. My husband has requested me to make it again. Next time I'll reduce the marinade a little so it's not overly sweet and my kids can eat it without the kochujang. Also, skip the drizzle of sesame oil on the finished product (doesn't need it).

Sausage and Sun-Dried Tomato Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
This turned out excellent. Only difference is I used spicy sausage since that's all I had on hand. I was slightly concerned about the spiciness but it was perfect. I used the sun dried tomatoes packed in oil. While baking I tented with foil because I was worried it would brown too much. I prepared this the night before and heated it up the following morning. Great. Will make again!

Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
We really liked this recipe! Only thing I did different was added a can of rinsed black beans. Served it to guests and they never said anything about noticing something different about the chili and we never told them what was in it. Will make again. Great way to add a little more veggie to your chili!

Frozen Coconut Caramel Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
This was wonderful. I had to make several changes based on what I can actually buy here in Japan. I whipped cream instead of using Cool Whip and I made my own caramel sauce (used grandma ople's apple pie caramel sauce recipe halved). I served it as dessert with friends and everyone thought it was great. Next time I will dry toast the nuts to omit the butter. I think it will still taste great with a fewer calories.
