Hand Held Hashbrown Casseroles

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
These were awesome! Made a few changes just based on personal taste...I left out the sausage completely, used fresh grated potatoes instead frozen hash browns, and used a mix of green pepper, mushrooms, onion and black olive instead of just the green pepper. Mine were done a few minutes early, and they were amazing! My boyfriend said he wanted to eat them everyday for breakfast :) Update...We have become obsessed with these and eat them at least once a week! We use whatever veggies we have on hand, sometimes use ham, sometimes no meat at all. They are fabulous every way! We like them cooked until they are a bit crispy. I even experimented with freezing them for busy mornings. I just wrapped them individually in foil and pop them into the toaster oven when I want to use them....you would think they were baked that morning, they froze beautifully!

Egg Breakfast Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
This recipe was great! I changed a few things to my taste...I didn't pre-cook the crust (I use rustic crust and they don't require it). I halved everything (except the eggs, I used 8) and only made 1 pizza. I scrambled the eggs, milk, s&p, green pepper, onion and a pinch of jalepeno until it was starting to set but not fully cooked. I spread a thin layer of cream of mushroom on the crust, followed by a thin layer of hot salsa. Put the egg mix on top of that and topped it with sliced tomatoes and a sliced pre-cooked sausage link (didn't have any bulk sausage). Topped all that with cheese and baked about 10 minutes...which I probably could have let it cook a couple more. I thought it was excellent and my boyfriend loved it as well!

Buckeyes I

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
I had a nightmare with these, but it was not the recipes fault! I have never made anything like this before, and never dipped anything in chocolate. I melted mine in the crockpot because it seemed so easy...however, apparently if you get even 1 drop of water in melted chocolate it will "seize" and get really solid and change the texture of the chocolate. So that was my problem. I ended up making it work and even saved the recipe and they turned out pretty good considering the texture of the chocolate is a little funky. They have a great flavor and are super easy to make....just make sure you don't get any water in you melting chocolate! If you haven't done it before you might "google" it for some tips before you do it, what I should have done : ) Will make again and learn from my mistakes!

Turkey Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
Really great soup! I made a few alterations based on personal preference, and because I didn't have a gravy packet. I used turkey broth made from the turkey carcass, and then added in leftover gravy made from the drippings. I also added in garlic, Italian seasoning, and oregano. I used dry egg noodles and boiled them separately. Then I just threw everything together in a big pot and boiled for about 20 minutes or so. It was quite plain until I added in the gravy drippings, it made a huge difference. It was really great and full of flavor!

Oven Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
Great recipe! I cut it in half (only 2 of us) and cooked it in an 8x8 pan. I think next time I'll use a larger pan to get a thinner result (better for sandwiches). The first day we had these I used them for breakfast burritos (sauteed peppers, onions and mushrooms separately). The second day we ate them I made breakfast paninis with cheese, ham and baby spinach. Both were really great. I think you could definitely reduce the amount of butter used if you want to, I will next time. This is a super great, easy way to make eggs either for a crowd or to have throughout the week.

Festive Cracker Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2011
This was great! I'm even not a huge fan of green olives, but I quite enjoyed it! I used my food processor as another reviewer suggested...chopped the veggies then through in the cream cheese and cheese and let it do all the work. It was awesome. My boyfriend loved it! It went great as an appetizer after having bloody mary's with our breakfast : )

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
I wish I could give this soup 172 stars! It is amazing, amazing, amazing! I have never made anything like this, but have been having and increasing appetite for curry lately. This did not disappoint! I will make this all the time! I doubled the recipe as others suggested and added extra curry and cayenne as others suggested. I also added a bit extra rice, just because I love rice! This is an awesome soup! Thank you so much for sharing!!!!!

Homemade Bagels

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
These are awesome! Very easy to make, and oh so delicious! I've been making big batches of different varieties and freezing them individually in foil. Then, when I don't have time to cook breakfast I just stick the bagel in the foil in my toaster oven, fry up an egg, throw a little cheese on it, and it makes a super delicious, quick and easy breakfast!

A Simply Perfect Roast Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
This was my first time cooking a turkey and it turned out fabulous! I didn't use stuffing inside, instead I used garlic, onion, carrots, and celery. It was great! I basted about every 45 minutes and it was very juicy! I also put rosemary and thyme in the pan. I still found the white meat dry, but I've never had white meat turkey that wasn't dry, just the way it is I think! My boyfriend said it was the juiciest turkey he had ever seen! He couldn't get enough of the dark meat! I'm using bones to make turkey stock today! Thanks for making my first Thanksgiving turkey excellent!

Drop Biscuits and Gravy

Reviewed: May 2, 2012
These were delicious! I made the biscuit recipe exactly as stated except tripled it so we would have some leftovers. I made the gravy exactly as stated except left out the sausage (we don't eat much meat) and it was really great. I have tried several different gravy recipes and none of them turned out very good, but finally, this one did! I sort of understand people's comments about it being a little plain...but it's biscuits and gravy...to me, this is how it's suppose to taste!

THE Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
I had to whip up a really quick lunch with very limited ingredients so I altered this recipe more than I would normally, but it still came out great. I left out the eggs, ham, and peas (no time to dethaw or cook the eggs) and the green onions (didn't have any). I added green peppers, mushrooms, and snap peas in the pod. I made the dressing as stated but used slightly less mayo (ran out) and slightly more sour cream to make up. I also used cheddar cheese instead of swiss. I was afraid it would be bad with all my changes, but it was great and we ate it all up! I will try it again without all the changes...but would still probably add additional veggies. We love veggies and it seems to me it would be a bit heavy without veggies.

Vanilla Granola

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
Great recipe! Makes a great snack! I think you could alter this according to your personal tastes, I stuck with the basic recipe though and it was great! We ate it as a snack and with milk for cereal.

French Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2011
Love this recipe! I followed it to a T except adding the 1 tbsp of sugar in the first step as other reviewers suggested. I am new to making bread, so I approach each new recipe nervously. I found this recipe easy to follow and very easy. I served this with the "warm mushroom spread" on AR and it was awesome together. I'm serving the other loaf tomorrow with Christmas dinner. Thanks for such an awesome recipe!

Warm Mushroom Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2011
Followed this recipe to a T and we loved it! It was just what I expected and did not disappoint. My boyfriend really liked it also. Served this with homemade French bread (from AR) and it made a great appetizer for Christmas Eve!

Cinnamon Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
This cake is the most moist cake I've ever had! It was so delicious! It's not overly chocolaty, with such a nice touch of cinnamon! I made a few adjustments based on other reviews; I cut the sugar to 1.5 cups (it was still plenty sweet), used heaping teaspoons for the cinnamon and a heaping fourth cup of cocoa. I used regular milk because I didn't have any buttermilk. It was awesome! I didn't make the icing, but I'm sure it would be delicious too :) I will definitely make this again and again!

Ghirardelli® Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
This didn't turn out great, but I think a lot of it has to do with me and not the recipe. It's exceptionally sweet. It's so rich it's hard to eat a whole piece. Those first few bites are amazing though!

Overnight Cinnamon Rolls I

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
I wish I could give this more than 5 stars! These are the most amazing cinnamon rolls I have ever had!!! I get nervous working with yeast because I don't have the best track record...but these turned out great! The key I think is to make sure you leave them in a really warm space to rise! Regular room temperature just isn't enough. The only things I changed with the recipe was to leave out the raisins and I didn't use the suggested glaze (my own preference - I don't like corn syrup). I used the glaze from the "Savory Cinnamon Rolls" recipe on this site. I cut the glaze in half and it was plenty for these rolls. I can't say thank you enough for posting this recipe! It is amazing!!!!

Spicy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
This is a good soup! I used slightly more than a pound of beans, only 4 cups broth and it was still more runny than I'd like. It's spicy, but for me, just the right amount. It is good and easy to make!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
Great biscuits! My boyfriend (who doesn't cook much) made these for me when I had a craving. He says the directions and recipe was "precise, clear and wonderful". They were delicious and we'll definitely make them again. We used butter instead of shortening...and (accidentally)used salted butter. I'd recommend using unsalted but ours weren't overly salty by any means.

Berry Good Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2012
Amazing! This came out so great! I made a couple of small changes. I used Greek Gods honey/strawberry yogurt (all I had) and I left out the almonds (didn't have any). My pan was also a little large, so I wasn't able to layer in the raspberries. I just put them on top and swirled them around a bit and it came out super great. I haven't made the glaze yet (waiting until the morning to make it), so I don't know about that, but the coffee cake is excellent!
