Oatmeal Pancakes II

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
Flavor and texture was great. On the runny side (even for pancakes). Didn't change a thing though and they turned out OK. My kids enjoyed them.

D's Famous Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2009
Great salsa. Can't wait to try with fresh tomatoes, but until then this one is a great and QUICK salsa recipe. I usually throw in 3 jalapenos (with seeds) if I am gong to serve only adults with this one. Add a dash or two of chili pepper and it is perfect for me.

Chocolate Brittle Surprise

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
Great and easy. I used what I had and I think this recipe is great because you CAN improvise. I used: graham crackers and I didn't have enough choc. chips so I used 1/2 white and 1/2 choc. chips - it turned out looking great. I also read reviews and kept nuking and stirring the brown sugar and butter until it bubbled and wasn't separating any more. Mine actually tasted better after it had set in the frig for a day.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
Needed a quick, last minute recipe for pancakes one morning and due to it's high reviews I chose this one. The reviews don't lie. If you remember not to overmix the pancake batter you will get very light and fluffy pancakes.

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
Love the flavor. Divided it up for Christmas. For the adult one I added chopped jalapenos.

Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
First time I had no candy thermometer - terrible. I cooked it too long and by the time I got to mixing the PB it was solidifying on me. SOO...got a candy thermometer the next time. I also read from another fudge review about mixing up the PB and Marshmellow cream and this also worked like a charm. This time - creamy goodness!!! I will never try to make fudge again without a candy thermometer. I also like lining the pan with foil instead of greasing it up.

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2008
**GET A CANDY THERMOMETER**I made fudge yesterday without a candy thermometer - ruined...flaky and gritty. Picked one up today and made another batch - smooth and creamy. Ingredients are too expensive to screw up an entire batch. I think the candy thermometer was less than $3. Just a note: It was about 6 1/2 min. into a rolling boil until my fudge reached 235.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2008
This is my favorite cookie recipe on allrecipes.com. I am not a chocolate fan (while everyone else in my family is). I can make these and then my little kids stick m-n-m's on top before I throw them in the oven. I have taken suggestions: Add 1tsp Van., use 1 3/4 c. flour, use 2 c. oatmeal, 1c. chunky PB and 1/2 c. creamy. They also taste incredible with white chocolate chips added. I cook them with convection at 325 for 9 min. and they are perfect. they look under cooked when I first take them out, but the firm up pretty quick on a cooling rack.

Spinach Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
The taste was pretty good, but no other family member wanted them. They smelled great cooking, but definitely cooled off too quickly for my little ones. They wouldn't touch them unless they were warm. I tried them because I needed some vegetarian apt. for Thanksgiving...will keep looking.

Megan's Granola

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
I have been making this granola for the past few years. It is a great base and I have tried it with all sorts of nuts and dried fruit. I do like cooking it on convection at 200 for about 50 min. It takes three cookie sheets and with convection and/or a low temp you don't have to fear burning the granola. My favorite addition is coconut and using dried blueberries for the fruit. I usually even heat the oil and honey in a cup in the microwave. I don't think you could screw this up...except by burning it of course!! YUM!! Thank you for the recipe Megan.

Crispy Orange Beef

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
The entire family enjoyed this from 2yrs old and up. The frying was a little painful (to my kitchen and my arm), but the sauce was great. I did double the sauce and cut the sugar in half. After simmering the sauce (right before adding the meat back in) I noticed it could be a little thicker so I kept adding cornstarch until I got the right consistency. I served orange slices for desert. The entire meal was excellent!

Pecan Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
I want to give it less, but the taste is great. I just think that calling them squares is misleading. My husband said, "this is the best pecan goo". I even cooked it for 50 min. using convection to ensure everything came out evenly cooked. The top definitely formed an almost creme brulee crispy top, but once I tried to cut into it (after cooling for about an hour) it just fell apart. I am taking the outside pieces to a pot luck tonight, but I am afraid the inside cuts just aren't "squares". UPDATE: after 24 hours the top seemed to firm up considerably - I think next time I will put the dish in the frig for about an hour to see if this solves the "goo" problem I am having.

Teddy Bear Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
Great idea! I am always looking for a quick breakfast that my 3 and 6 yr. old will eat without arguing. They both gobbled these up. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to sprinkle all of the cinn./sugar mixture, but I did use it all and they turned out perfect

Fettuccini Carbonara

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
Easy to make. I diced everything before hand and cooked the bacon previously so when I got home from work it went even faster. I can't wait to try it with proscuitta and maybe even peas. Did it this first time exactly how the recipe is...great!!! My 3 year old and 6 year old ate an entire plate!!

Morning Glory Muffins II

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
LOVED these. I was looking for a good carrot muffin as my kids love them...this is it!! I made all mini-muffins and froze half of them. The next morning I had to defrost them because my kids had already eaten the first half. I am going to double the recipe next time. I did use a blender for the apples and carrots...much faster!!!

Awesome Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
Great recipe. I did use the "better than bullion" that was suggested and found that I needed to add salt because of that. The whole family loved it. I did know ahead of time that I was going to freeze the leftovers for another time.

Banana Coconut Loaf

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
I was looking for something to make with my bananas besides the "same old banana bread". This was a great choice. I did read the reviews and took ya'lls advice. I didn't have applesauce so I chopped up a little apple to add the moisture many of you thought it needed. Also, didn't have any cherries so I added dried cranberries...yum!!!

Jeff's Chili Con Queso

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2008
Great adaptable chili con queso recipe. With little kids I actually made two different batches. One bowl I used the velveeta MX mix and just threw everything in it to melt. The second pot I used a Hot Salsa and added jalapenos. My kids were happy and so were me and my hubby. 5 stars!!!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
Great chewy cookie. I read all the reviews and tweaked it so: -added 2 tsp. baking powder, added 1/2 tsp. salt, upped the vanilla. I also rinsed my cookie sheet in cold water between batches and my cookie did not fall on the edges. I also used convection on my oven so I cooked @325 for about 8min. 45 seconds. Luckily I read that they cookie may seem undercooked when you take it out, but since it cooks a little more this time was perfect for me. YUM!!!
