Waikiki Meatballs

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
I enjoyed this. I followed the recipe for the most part. Just kicked up the sauce and meatballs with a little hot sauce. I baked the meatballs as others did rather than putting them in a pan. I served them over rice. I think the hot sauce is necessary to balance out the sweetness.

Snickerdoodles I

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
Easy recipe that made a nice, crunchy cookie. The only things I changed were to add a teaspoon of vanilla, and my shortening was butter-flavored. They turned out great! Just the right amount of sweetness.

Eggplant Tomato Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
I switched up the cheeses a bit, but otherwise followed this closely... Loved it! My husband said it is one of his favorite things I have ever made. I served it over angel hair with focaccia. :)

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
Great recipe. Sweet, but not overwhelming. I decorated them with purple buttercream frosting and Easter sprinkles. One thing I would note is that they do not change shape/expand much, so make sure they are in the nice pretty shapes you want before you bake them. I had an ugly first batch. ;)

Easy Italian Herb Focaccia

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
This turned out great! I served it with an eggplant bake. We dipped it in olive oil with parm cheese and Italian seasoning in it. I might add a little garlic to the dough next time, but it was great as it was! Nice change from ordinary bread.

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
I altered it a bit by having equal parts milk chocolate, semi-sweet, and butterscotch chips. It was only my second time making fudge, but it turned out delicious and perfect! I took some to work, and it was gone by lunch! It was very easy, and I highly recommend it for that and how good it tastes. :)

Candy Bar Cookie Squares

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2009
I made these for a co-worker's birthday, and they turned out great! I followed the recipe exactly They're very sweet, but what do you expect with the ingredients? :) The dough was easy to work with, and they baked up perfectly with a nice, chewy texture. They were gone before noon! Next time, I think I will try chocolate cake mix. :)

Baked Oatmeal Squares

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
Well, I changed things because I can't seem to make anything without changing it. :) I did 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 white sugar. I added a mashed up banana. I still did the egg; I just thought the banana would be good. :) Instead of just raisins, I used a "berry medley" that had raisins, cranberries, blueberries, and cherries. I also added a dash of vanilla, more cinnamon, and allspice. It turned out to be quite tasty! I would probably do more spices next time. It crumbled some, but nothing major. Delicious warm!

Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
This was a good base, as others have said. I had to increase the number of eggs, the amount of milk, and the slices of bread. I think I ended up using 6 eggs, 2 cups of milk, and 3 slices of bread. I also added a little hot sauce and sauteed peppers and onions. Yum! A good base to jazz up your own way.

Broccoli and Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
Very tasty, very easy recipe. I made this for a potluck at work, and it was almost all gone. I didn't use bacon because of some vegetarian co-workers, but otherwise, I followed the recipe pretty closely. I used frozen tortellini and blanched the broccoli in the pot with the tortellini for about 30 seconds before pulling it off the stove. Worked very well. My only complaint would be that this was a little on the sweet side for my tastes. I might add a touch more vinegar next time.

Cream of Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
Excellent with some changes... I can never make a recipe without changing it. :) I used low sodium chicken broth and evaporated milk. I upped the spices a lot, and added cayenne pepper and cloves. It would be bland as written, but delicious when you spice it more to your tastes. The croutons are a definite must!

Applesauce Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
My grandfather used to make applesauce cake when I was a kid. I don't have his recipe, so I tried this one... Pretty close! I used half brown sugar and half white sugar, margarine instead of butter, and pecans instead of walnuts (since that's what I had). Delicious! Will make this again!

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2008
This was a great recipe. I changed a few things about it. I added more vanilla because I am a vanilla freak. I also added cinnamon and ground cloves for a bit of spice. I did half brown sugar/half white sugar and added a little more baking soda to compensate for that. I didn't have chocolate chips, so I took some Hershey's Kisses and Hugs from my candy dish and chopped those up. It worked well! I used the KitchenAid to mix everything up. The bread was moist and delicious, but it is quite dense. I could taste the bananas and the chocolate, and I thought the flavors blended together nicely. Tastes great with a little cream cheese!

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2007
Great, flavorful recipe. I used fresh basil and added a couple of splashes of white wine. I think the wine made a great difference in the taste.

Family-Style French Toast

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2007
This is a great recipe! I was craving French toast, but I hate the messy frying. The other recipes required overnight soaking, but this one didn't. I was so glad to find this recipe. I used Texas Toast instead of French bread, and Eggbeaters instead of real eggs. Puffed up nicely, and looked pretty on the bottom where the brown sugar was. Convenient, as the syrup is built in. :) Be warned that it is a bit sticky. :) Will definitely make it again.

Peppermint Patties

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2006
A bit difficult to dip, but taste great! Just like the real thing. I added vanilla extract and red food coloring to mine. I did half in dark chocolate and the other half in milk chocolate. Milk chocolate seemed to be a little smoother to work with.

Eggnog Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
These were pretty good, with some alterations. I used lowfat eggnog, and added about 1/2 cup of skim milk to thin it out. I "sorta" clarified the butter. Didn't have a problem with them burning. They were slightly dense, but had great eggnog flavor. I'd make this again.

Easy Beer and Ketchup Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2006
I took off a star because I think 2 bottles of beer would be far too watery, and I think the meatballs need jazz. However, with one bottle of beer and my own meatball recipe (which has more spices than this one), this was excellent.
