Soft, Moist and Gooey Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
My very first time at making cinnamon buns and it was a hit! I was a little scared by the part that said you have to knead it once it comes out of the bread machine, as I am very new to working with dough, but I set the timer while I kneaded and it turned out fine. The only "problem" I had was that I had too many cinammon rolls to fit in the pan (I used a Pampered Chef pan). I tried to squeeze them all in there anyway, and they were a little squished but still tasted very good. Some of the squished ones were almost not cooked enough in the middle (and I cooked for 20 minutes since I was using stoneware). Next time I will either make them bigger or use a bigger pan. I also used the frosting recipe from Clone of a Cinnabon, rather than the glaze in this recipe. That frosting is very good, but these buns are so good that they almost didn't need all that frosting, so next time I am going to stick to the entire recipe and use the glaze that comes with it. I highly recommend this recipe, and for those of you who are scared of working with dough like I am, try this recipe, I found it very forgiving and easy to work with. A+++++++

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2007
Great loaf of bread! I used the overnight setting on my bread machine and was pleasantly surprised. The bread was soft, fresh, and tasty, and the crust is perfect. I did not stray from the recipe other than using butter instead of margarine. Next time I too will be trying it with a little added honey. Thanks for the great recipe! Update: I just made this again with the other reviewers suggestion of adding honey, I added 2 tbsp to the wet ingredients. It was really good, the kids loved it and polished it off in no time! I personally like it either way, as written, and with honey added for something different. I highly recommend this recipe.

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
This will be replacing my regular French Toast recipe. I wouldn't say fluffy either, but it does have the perfect texture, just like a restaurants, wouldn't change a thing. Definitely whisk batter between dipping bread slices, like the other reviewers recommend. Thanks for the recipe! Update: Here's a tip: add the cinnamon in with the flour in the first step rather than adding later...I did this and the cinammon mixed WAY better into the liquid mixture.

Candied Carrots

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
I'd actually rate this 3.5, kids loved them and adults thought they were too sweet. I guess that's why they're called "candied carrots" though! Update: I changed my rating to 5 - I cut the sugar down by half and it was perfect. Great way to get kids to eat their veggies! I'm glad I gave this recipe another try.

Daddy's Popcorn

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2007
This is how popcorn was made while I was growing up. It really is so much better than microwave, and doesn't have all the preservatives. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2007
These were kind of a disaster for me but I am still rating them 4 stars for taste as the disaster was my fault! First of all, I think I made them too big, I wasn't sure of the definition of a small scoop so they really puffed up and it took longer than 12 minutes for them to turn brown. Second, I used my Pampered Chef baking stone, which was fine, but when I followed the advice of other reviewers to put the butter on and bake them for a few more minutes, the butter dripped off my baking stone and smoked up my oven! Lastly, I put my biscuts too close together and some stuck to each other. I followed the advice of others and put in extra cheese and seasonings into the dough (omitting salt) which was fine, but I think there was too much butter topping. I tried to use it all and it made my biscuits soggy. It really is a good recipe, but I will have to try it again and not be in such a hurry! Thanks for the recipe.

Pat's Mushroom Saute

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
Thank you so much for giving me that ever elusive recipe for restaurant style mushrooms! I agree with the other posters, they do not need to be cooked that long. Don't be scared of the oregano, I almost didn't add it but I think that's what gives it that restaurant taste (along with the vinegar). Next time I am going to add some onions. Thanks again for the five star recipe.

Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2007
My original review was 3 stars and my comment was that I didn't like the Italian Seasoning taste in the butter. I decided to give this recipe another try and am glad I did. I am Canadian, and we have a spice mix called "Italiano" (made by Club House). It is ground up finer than traditional Italian Seasoning and tastes way milder. The rest of the recipe was the same except for I used 1 tsp of garlic salt rather than 1 tbsp. I also whipped it a bit with my hand blender (due to another person's comments about not liking the texture of the parmesan cheese). It was awesome, tasted restaurant quality, but rating it 4 stars as even with the reduced garlic salt, it definitely was still a bit too salty. Next time I will use garlic powder and unsalted butter. Other than that, this recipe is a keeper.

Garlic Bread Mama Rita's Way!

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2007
I would like this much better if it had a different spice than basil. I halved it and it was still way too strong, tastes more like Basil Bread than Garlic Bread. I think next time I'll use Italian Seasoning or even just parsley. Otherwise, a good portion size for a meal (I've seen some recipes on here that use a whole cup of butter!) I used hot dog buns instead of hoagie rolls as I needed to use them up and they actually looked really cute and were a perfect serving size. Thanks for the recipe, I'll need to tweak it though before I make it again.

Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
Awesome. Just what I was looking for, definitely restaurant quality. Time consuming and messy, but worth it! Followed recipe exactly, don't feel it needs any extra seasoning. Served with homemade Honey Mustard Dressing from this site.

Sharktooth Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
I realized while making this recipe that I had no cream of chicken soup, so I just used cream of mushroom. It was really good! Went over well with my 14 year old and with my 15 month old both. Thanks for the quick and easy lunch recipe. Update: I just made this as written (with the cream of chicken soup) and my family didn't like it (like another reviewer mentioned, tasted like a TV dinner). I will stick to making it with mushroom soup.

Chicken Broth in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
Way, way too much basil. I will cut down drastically or eliminate next time. To be honest, the smell of the chicken cooking really grossed me out. But it works like a charm, it was super easy. Because I was so grossed out the broth sat in my fridge for a bit before I used it, which was OK as I was able to skim off the fat. I did not reuse the chicken from it as it tasted weird from the basil. Next time I make this I am going to freeze it so I have time to get over the smell :) Thanks for the recipe!

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
This is so cool! I can't believe that they taste like regular potato chips! I even tried them with purple potatoes, my MIL always dumps a batch on me every year and I never know what to do with them. It's hard to tell when the purple ones are done as they don't turn brown but I used the same time I did for my batch of regular potatoes. I sprayed my dish with Pam liberally and had no problems with sticking. I did have a few overlap though and they stuck together. I also tried with just olive oil spray instead of regular oil and they worked, but not as tasty. If I had a Pampered Chef oil sprayer I would do it that way next time, much easier than putting them in a bag. Thanks for the recipe!

Fried Pork Chop

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2007
This is good, I've had trouble before getting chops to fry without being dried out. One secret is to get them cut thinner, and the second secret is this recipe, although I did also knock off a star for too much oil. I used 3/4 cup and even that was still plenty. Thanks for the recipe!

Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2007
I've been making a version of this for awhile now. I usually make too much spaghetti and have some meat sauce left over so I make this recipe with the leftovers and freeze it for another day. When we unthaw it and bake it, it almost tastes better than the original meal!

Creamed Cucumber Slices

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2007
I am not a cucumber fan but the rest of my family is. My mother-in-law makes a version of this recipe and I would ask her how to do it but she eyeballs everything, so I wasn't able to duplicate it. I did an ingredient search on here and found this recipe. Let me tell you, my husband likes this recipe BETTER than his own mother's! It is definitely thicker than hers, and I did read the reviews about there being too much dressing so I just added more sliced cucumbers, was an easy fix. I did taste the dressing and I must admit it is good. My husband and family thank you for this recipe.

Maple Dill Carrots

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
Awesome recipe, just what I was looking for. Far better than the other recipe I tried on here that used lemon juice. I used freeze dried dill and boiled the carrots and strained them instead of boiling them down. I used to make my carrots by adding a little sugar to the water I boiled them in to make them sweet - I think this way is MUCH better! Also, coming from a fellow Canadian, perhaps she called this Maple Carrots because we have the maple leaf on our flag, and she is from BC? Just a thought :) This is my new carrot recipe from now on, thanks so much!

Iced Mochas

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2007
OMG OMG OMG! I am so excited! I love Tim Horton's ice caps and the closed one is 1 hr away from us. I followed the review of the person who said to use 1 cup of milk and sub in caramel syrup for chocolate. It really does taste like an Ice Cap! The only thing is, I think next time I'll use less sugar, the caramel syrup has plenty of sugar in it on it's own. I liked the fact that it was thick so I think I will keep on using just one cup of milk. Thanks so much for the TO DIE FOR recipe! (even though I made it a little differently!)

Carla's Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2007
Pleasant tasting - not the absolute best but still very addictive! I was bad though and drizzled caramel ice cream topping on top as a garnish. It was a nice touch but still good on its own. Thanks for the recipe! Update: I tried this with strawberry cream cheese and it is also good.
