Beer Batter Waffles

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
Surprisingly good! The recipe was so interesting I had to try it. I used two cups all purpose flour so I added 1 Tb baking powder and 1 tsp salt to make it self rising. Otherwise I followed the directions exactly. I used miller light since it's the cheapest stuff we have on hand. They turned out nicely golden and lightly crisp, we loved it. Especially since our George Forman waffle grill has a hard time cooking waffles well. Very easy recipe and will try it again.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
My husband and I love the bold flavors of the pizza sauce. However, my three year old and one year old aren't the biggest fans. The three year old won't eat it at all and my one year old eats very little. we cut back the red pepper and then it's too sweet. We've cut back on both and then it's a little too dull for us. We're going to keep making it as written in hopes the girls will change their minds eventually.

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
Made this tonight and it's pretty good. Scaled it down to a half recipe but still used the full can of stewed tomatoes. I added a green and yellow bell pepper plus some dissolved cornstarch in water 45 minutes before dinner time. Turned out pretty good. we served it over either egg noodles or rice (I have picky kids) and we agreed that the rice was better. I'll make this again and add a few things to the sauce to make it a little more flavorful.

Meatball Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
I made a half recipe tonight and turned out pretty yummy. I have to agree with a couple reviewers that it isn't very saucy. If you like more sauce to your lasagna then you may need to increase the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, and water. I thought the meatballs added a great flavor to the lasagna and is very convenient if you have them on hand. We'll probably make this again.

Asian Salmon Wrap

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
Hmm, could be better. Will try again with these changes: shredded daikon (very common in Japan), use fresh salmon (maybe even the salted kind), and toasted sesame seeds. I thought overall the flavor was good, but the canned salmon turned me off. I used toasted seeds because that's what I have on hand. Since this is an asian inspired wrap, I found it odd being on a flour tortilla. Next time I'll try wrapping it in lettuce. It will highlight the flavors of everything else and be lower in calories.

Rita's Sweet Holiday Baked Ham

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
This was the first full sized ham I had ever cooked and came out great. The only difference is I used sugar free maple syrup because that's what I use. Great flavor and everyone went back for seconds and even thirds. I'll be making this again for Christmas.

Mom's Best Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
Followed directions to a T but put it on a warm cookie sheet at the end. The brittle easily spread over the sheet and cooled perfectly. It didn't last long in this house so if you want to share with friends you need to easily double the recipe. If you really like peanuts I would recommend adding another 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup to the recipe. Oh, I did use a candy thermometer and it took awhile for it to reach 300 degrees. still did the water test to make sure, but it took about 7 minutes of boiling to reach the right temp.

Chicken Chimichangas with Green Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
We really liked the chimis, but I have to admit that the fillings are quite skimpy. I weigh all of my ingredients so I can keep track of how much I'm eating and their wasn't much to fill my tortillas. So, next time I'm going to either increase the filling amount of decrease the number of tortillas. The green sauce however was excellent and has to be made for this recipe. Overall, good stuff.

French Toast Stars

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
Our search for a french toast recipe is now over! We don't cut them into stars so we can get 5 thick pieces of white bread with the amount of liquid the recipe makes. We've used cream, half and half, and even 2% milk and all of them have great end results. We use less butter, about 1 tbsp for each round of french toast (3). Make this about once a week!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
This was delicious, I did make several changes. We live in Japan and can't get granny smith apples so I used 4 large local sweet eating apples and it was actually to much. When making the sauce it says to form a paste, but it shouldn't with the amount of butter to flour ratio. I added more flour to make a paste which in turn made the filling too thick then had to add water to make it the right consistency. So, follow the ingredient amount and don't cook it took long or it will be too thick. Also, add a tsp of cinnamon! I added the mixture to the apples then put the crust on it. I saved a little liquid to drizzle on top. It has to be one of the best apple pies I've eaten. I served it to a Japanese couple and they said they've never had any apple pie taste that good! I've also made a single serving of this pie in a large ramekin with left over crust when making several pies. I scale the ingredients to 2 and use one large apple. Yummy!

Gone with the Wind Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
I liked this recipes since it didn't require so many egg whites. I don't think I would make this if I didn't have my kitchenaid, it really cut the time and the workload. I don't have a tube pan so I used three little loaf pans. They turned out great. We used one loaf for chocolate fondue and gave the other two to friends who also said they loved it. Not too sweet and a lovely flavor. We'll be making this one again.

Hot Apple Cider

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2008
Yummy, I made some alterations based on what I have. I used regular apple juice since I can't find cider here in Japan yet. I didn't have cheese cloth so I used a coffee filter and put the sticks, cloves, mikan (japanese clementine)rind, and sugar free maple syrup. It was great and got lots of compliments!

Rosie's Bok Choy Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2008
I dry toast my nuts and seeds so decided to cut out the butter/margarine on this one. It came out perfect. I also used baby bock choy since that's all I can find here in Japan. Wow, it is an amazing salad. My husband was in love and had thirds! From now on I'm going to serve the ramen, nuts, and seeds on the side. Just in case there are left overs (which there was) it remains crunchy. We'll serve this often while Bok Choy is in season here.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
I don't think I'll ever go back to normal chocolate chip cookies again. I've made this recipe twice and both times have been excellent, just needs several minutes than suggested. Recently I did a flour mix: 1/3 all purpose, 1/3 wheat, 1/3 wheat germ and no one could tell the difference (not even the 5 kids that ate them). Thanks for the recipe, will make regularly.

Yellow Dhal - Sweet Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
I was sadly dissapointed in this recipe. Followed instructions and the end result was quite bland and that was including the three jalepenos. I had it for left overs for lunch and it still lacked flavor. Not sure if I'd bother with this recipe again.

Kookie Brittle

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
This is a very simple recipe with nice end results. I used half whole wheat and half all purpose flour. I used salted buter and should have adjusted the amount of salt because it was a little too salty for me. so, if you use salted butter either reduce or skip the salt in the recipe. I used toasted pecans and it was wonderful. I think I'll make this again with unsalted butter and possibly try almonds or walnuts to see which I like more.

Southern Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
Yummy, and we forgot the vanilla at the end. I scaled it down to four servings and decreased the sugar a little. I also used half regular and half brown. It came out just as described in the directions. We'll make it again.

Basic Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
I usually do this in a crock pot starting late morning. I follow the recipe as follows but add a dash of hot sauce near the end. It's something my dad has done to his ham and bean soup to give it a little kick which we really like. Pretty good basic soup.

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
A new favorite of ours. The first time I made this I didn't have tomato sauce so I used paste and watered it down...it worked! I now use just tomato sauce and it's easier than watering down the paste. It smells so good in the house while making this. My hubby absolutely loves it and it tastes great with naan bread too. What a great and quick meal.

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
Excellent and easy. Everyone comments on how they can't believe it's a homemade dressing. I just happened to have everything on hand to make it and now we love having it. I even use this to toss pasta and veggies in for a quick dish.
