Best Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2013
These were really dense and lacked the sweetness I expect from brownies. Definitely more of a cake bar that tastes bitter instead of the chewy, chocolatey brownies that I love. I'll go back to my old brownie recipe.

Banana and Vanilla Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2012
These are fabulous! Moist, with a great banana and vanilla flavor. I made two very minor tweaks: I used cake flour instead of AP flour, and I mashed up the bananas and blended them in before I added the dry ingredients. I probably got slightly more than 1 tsp vanilla, but that never hurt anybody. I topped them with peanut butter and chocolate chips. A huge hit with the family and coworkers!

Mary's Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
I made some mild changes, such as using bread crumbs instead of using cubed bread. I also cut up green pepper and sauteed it with the onion, fresh garlic and a pinch of dried rosemary. My kids asked for seconds, and they're not really big beef eaters. I second whoever put the sauce on with about an hour left to cook. It didn't burn that way.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
Made it as-is, minus the pickled ginger and it was fabulous. We'll definitely be making it again!

Flat Iron Steak with Three Pepper Rub

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
We absolutely LOVE this steak rub! I used sirloin tip steak and it was amazing. Served with cheese/sour cream/green chile mashed potatoes. I made up a second package of thin-cut sirloin tip for burritos this week, using the rest of the green chiles for a cheese sauce. Thanks for giving me another easy dish to add to my files!

Mama's Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
We thought this dressing was fabulous, but made a couple of minor tweaks. We felt the vinegar and mustard were competing with each other too much, so I toned it down with about 1Tbsp of honey. I also added a dash of onion powder. A good hard shake in the container and it was perfect!

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2008
Like a few others I was skeptical about destroying the chicken without having any real liquid in the crockpot for so long. I was so glad to find out my fears were unfounded. This is one of the best things I've tasted in a long time! Great comfort food!

Butter Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2008
I tweaked this a lot and it was fantastic. I seasoned the beef with salt, pepper and garlic powder, then tossed with the melted butter and soup mix. I then put in a small sliced onion and 1/2 cup beef broth. Let that cook for about 5 hours and then tossed in baby carrots, cornstarch and a dash of worcestershire sauce and let it sit for another hour. Absolutely delish! I really don't think the beef needs to be browned before going in the crockpot. It browned nicely on its own and was so moist and falling apart when cut with a fork.
