Uncle Mac's Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2013
These cookies are good. They are tasty and very easy to make. I like that you can get creative with different jam flavors as well. Here are the revisions I made on my first try at these and they turned out great. Some came from you guys here (thank you so much) and a couple of my own. 1. Definately cut the sugar in half. I didn't even attempt to make it with what the recipe calls for per someone's suggestion and I'm glad, because while I enjoy "sweet" too much can ruin it. They were the perfect amount of sweetness with half the sugar. 2. I sprayed the fork with cooking spray and as someone else mentioned DON'T flatten these cookies with the fork, whatever you use to make the "filling hole" or otherwise. An 1/8 teaspoon works for the indentation. Press just enough to make a slight dip in the center so the filling won't run over. 3. DEFINATELY mix the jelly or jam before you drop it on the cookies. Much less mess and easier to control. 4. I doubled the recipe as well per other suggestions and I had a ton of cookies, which was fine because they are smaller, but it seems the original amount would yeild a good amount of cookies. 5. BAKE TIME: You guys are right! 8 minutes is PERFECT. 6. Finally, I added good pinches of cinnamon and nutmeg. They turned out great! Thank you for sharing the recipe and thank you to all the others who shared their own revisions. What a great team we all make on here :D! Lol.

Beef Stewganoff

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
I LOVE this recipe. It was the first time I ever made a stew and my boy friend, who loves stew really enjoyed it and said it was a "keeper". I served it with warm crusty bread and garlic, parmesean, buttered noodles, then we made mashed potatoes to go with it the next night. You can eat it just as a soup too. The only change I made was coating the beef in flour and searing it before adding it. This thickened it up a bit and made the beef more tender. I chose to omit the peas because I don't like them, so I only simmered it for 45 minutes, but I had also cut the recipe in half. I will definately make this as a cold winter night comfort food dish again! Thank you for sharing your recipe.

Drop Biscuits and Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
Very easy and tasy! The only things I did differently was add shredded cheddar cheese to the biscuit mix, which meant I had to add a bit more milk and melted butter until I got the right consistancy. As far as the gravy went, I added onion powder and a couple of dashes of red pepper for a bit more flavor. I also was liberal with the salt and the crushed black pepper. Thank you of sharing!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
Sooooo good. I didn't use tabasco for those that don't like it too spicy. I figured they could add it if they wanted. I also found a "basic beer cheese bread" recipe that I made and it complimented your chili very nicely. Thank you for sharing this, but I have to tell you as a University of Michigan Grad, we play you guys next Saturday and we will beat you while eating your delicious chili. LOL Seriously though. Loved this recipe :)

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
Thank you for sharing this recipe. I made it last night for the first time! It was delicious. I made the following modifications for fun: I used 1/2 beef and 1/2 Italian sausage (which gave it an extra kick). I also used fresh, chopped mushrooms and real onion and garlic instead of powder. 5 minutes before it was done I sprinkled the tops with colby jack cheese. Yummy...

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
Wow! Thank you for this recipe! It was fantastic and easy. I made a few changes: The night before I had made a beef roast for dinner and cooked it to rare, so I used the left over from that as the beef. I was a bit nervous that the beef would be too tough so I only simmered it for about a half-hour and you could still cut it with a fork. Also, I didn't have canned mushrooms on hand so I used fresh mushrooms and sliced them and threw them in with the green onion. FANTASTIC! Anyone who loves beef stroganoff should definately try this recipe :)
