Teriyaki Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
Very good. I don't keep cooking sherry around, so I subbed 2 tbsp chicken broth and 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar (I think you could use any "sweet" vinegar). Very good as a marinade for chicken. We make this all the time - it's our "go to" meal (usually put on chicken) when we are craving Chinese type food.

Cincinnati Chili I

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2007
This is without a doubt one of my all time favorite recipes from this site. I have adapted it to our tastes - no chopped onion while cooking (use onion powder for the smooth texture), and I cook the ground beef in an additional cup or two of broth then drain to remove the extra fat - I also have added more broth and just simmered until it all reduces and gets beautiful and smooth and thick. Also I add just a touch of molasses (maybe a tsp or two). Freezes beautifully, if you ever have any left - we never seem to. This has been a big hit at family gatherings, and we also like to serve it on hot dogs as a change from serving over spaghetti (sacrilege, I know, but it's GOOD! LOL).

Onion Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
This will be going into our regular meal rotation! I used a yellow onion (all I had - I rarely buy red) and sauteed it in half butter, half olive oil, and cut back on the pepper, to 1/4-1/2 tsp (I just grind it in). Delicious! It's a very flexible recipe provided you stay within the 1:2 rice:water ratio. We also like to add a bit of minced garlic just before adding the broth. Editing to add sometimes it takes a little longer than 20 minutes (I find it takes 25-30). Using equal portions of onion and rice (ie. 1 cup of raw onion, 1 cup of uncooked rice) seems to offer the perfect ratio (for us). Also very good if you let the onions turn translucent prior to adding the rice so they brown a bit while you "toast" the rice.

One Bowl Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
These were yummy and came out perfect! I did change a couple of things (always do) - used 3/4 cup cocoa and 1/4 canola oil whisked until smooth (no baking chocolate) and added 1/2 tsp almond extract but otherwise followed the directions. We will definitely be making these again. They are insanely sticky, though; I will definitely try the foil trick next time.

Meaty Thick Man Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2007
Dh loves this! Made it tonight thanks to the cooler weather and it was a big hit - as per the other reviews, I used 2.5-3 lbs hamburger, 2 15-oz cans of tomato sauce, then filled one of the cans full of water (about 1 3/4 cups), and cut back on the chili powder (I can't imagine 3/4 of a cup) . Also added in a couple of beef bouillon cubes. Yum! I look forward to seeing how it is the second day.

Parmesan Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2007
This is absolutely fantastic. One of the best recipes we've tried from this site. My husband loved it and already put in a request to make it again - soon. I did have to change some things based on what I had in the house. I used a cannister romano/parmesan blend (all I had) so I used less (3/4 cup) and omitted the salt since romano is so salty. I added a can of drained corn since I didn't have cream corn in the house, and also (as a result) used less of the roux (2 tbsp each butter and flour) since there was less liquid from the cream corn. I also tossed in a clove of minced garlic when I simmered the vegetables and added some dried thyme and parsley (about 1/2-1 tsp of each) to serve. I don't believe that the changes I made detract at all from the quality of the recipe - I only made them to accommodate what I had in my pantry. Hopefully my review help someone else to know what changes can be made without hurting the recipe - it's wonderful and I highly recommend it.

Peaches 'N Cream Banana Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
Very good. Have made both as written (very good) but also skipping the ice, with half a frozen banana and 1/2 cup sliced chilled peaches (I like less banana). Very filling and very good flavor! Look forward to playing around with different flavors of the various ingredients - the proportions are great, I would just skip the ice - freeze the banana instead.

Sweet Summer Smoothie

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2012
Very good - love that it uses greek yogurt! No extra sweeteners needed. The only change I made was I used blueberry instead of vanilla. Very filling ... feels like I'm eating dessert. :)

Burly Burger

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
Yum. One of my eldest ds' favorite sandwiches - I enjoy it too but rarely indulge. :) I prefer mine on a roll but it's good on toasted bread, too.

Pumpkin Oatmeal

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
Yum. Made with vanilla soy milk, pumpkin pie spice (instead of just cinnamon) and used splenda instead of the honey. Can't believe how creamy the pumpkin makes it!

Peanut Butter Treats™

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2010
These are a family favorite - my mom always made them this way and so do I. :) Only thing I change is to use 5 1/2 cups rice krispies instead of 6 or we find them too firm.

Pasta Deli Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
Proportions are just right! We skipped the onions (don't like them raw, IMO they get overwhelming in dishes like this) and used celery instead of the green pepper. Also good with Ken's Greek dressing instead of Italian with a handful or two of chopped black olives tossed in. This is going into our regular summer rotation! Thanks!

Banana Split Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
Even better the second day. I do have to confess to using milk chocolate chips (prefer them) and we added 1/2 cup chopped maraschino cherries (to make it more "banana split" like). I actually wasn't too enamored with it the first day but this morning the flavors were fabulous! Will make again.

School Day Biscuits

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
Delicious. The perfect quick treat! I used two 7.5 ounce packages (the ones that have 10 biscuits in them) because that was what I had on hand and had plenty of the butter and the sugar mixture to do all 20 biscuits. Used parchment paper to avoid the sticking issues - worked perfectly.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
Oh my. This northern gal has always been terrified of making biscuits ... no more. I cheated the first time and skipped the rolling/cutting and just did drop biscuits - they are SO GOOD! Especially with fresh butter and honey. Mmmm definitely going in the make again pile!!!

Green Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
Delicious. Can't taste the kale flavor at all! Only change I made was to freeze the kale, too. Have also made it with coconut milk instead of milk and it's yummy that way, too.

Elbows and Ground Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
As other reviewers suggested, we used jarred spaghetti sauce instead of the tomato sauce for more flavor (and I agree, the tomato sauce alone would would have been rather bland). Delicious, wonderful comfort food. Will definitely make again. Editing to add: The leftovers are even better. :)

Freeze-Easy Chocolate Shake

As per the other reviews I used half the milk and got a big thumbs up from my kids. Will definitely be making this again - simple is sometimes best. :)

Easy Mexican Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
This was a big hit with my Junior troop (girl scouts). They had a blast guessing the "secret" ingredient (chili powder). Only complaint was that after sitting it seems to separate and there is a rather unappetizing sludge at the bottom - I think this is one drink that has to be drunk immediately, not allowed to sit (ours was made ahead of time and kept warm in a crockpot for about 45 minutes). Even whisking it back together to serve didn't eliminate the eventual sludge. I would make it again, definitely, but to drink right away.

Jazzy Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2007
This was pretty good. We didn't "love" it but it was a nice change from the standard green been casserole - and I can definitely see using other veggies in it. The only thing I did differently was use onion powder instead of the minced onion.
