Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2014
This is the chocolate chip recipe I have been looking for. Soft and chewy even the next day! I followed the recipe exactly, except I made a half batch. Oh, and I added 1/2 tsp. of salt. I have tried many chocolate chip recipes and this is by far the best. Thank you, thank you!

Tart Lemon Triangles

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2014
These were great! I made as directed, except for using 1/2 cup butter (since other reviewers mentioned the crust was a bit crumbly), and a bit extra lemon juice (I used juice and zest from 3 lemons since others noted they liked them more sour.) Oh, and I also added a pinch of salt to the crust and the filling. I used a pastry blender for the crust, just like making a pie crust, which I would recommend. It's easy and less messy than using a food processor since you can just toss it in the dishwasher. I cooked them a little bit longer, just until the filling was set. They were absolutely delicious. I did not let them cool completely because I was impatient, and they were good warm last night, and also great cold from the fridge today. Thanks for a yummy recipe!

Fresh Asparagus Soup

Reviewed: May 20, 2014
Wow, this is a REALLY good soup. I made this using asparagus from my mom's garden — she brought me a bunch and I was not sure what to do with it. Like other reviewers, I used regular milk (2%) and chicken broth, because that is what I had on hand. It is so amazing. I am on my second bowl. P.S. My mom showed me that if you peel the lower portion of the asparagus with a vegetable peeler (just the last couple of inches or so), it won't be stringy. Works for plain asparagus, and also a good tip for the soup. Thanks for a delicious recipe!!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2014
Thanks for a tasty and easy recipe! I'm giving it a 4 because I loved it, but my hubby said it was good but a little too sweet. I agree, and think that's maybe a function of the BBQ sauce we used + the root beer. ( I tasted it before the BBQ and it was kinda sweet.) We used Sweet Baby Ray's, and we did drain all the root beer. When I say too sweet, I mean just a little. I do think the flavor mostly comes from the sauce and I am pretty inexperienced in BBQ. My husband suggested Stubbs BBQ sauce next time, so we will try is again for sure!

Teriyaki Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2014
Wow. This was sooo good! I just finished the leftovers and wanted to say thank you for sharing your amazing recipe. I marinated the chicken on a Sunday night, poking it several times with a fork to make sure it soaked up the marinade. The next day I turned the pieces over a couple of times to keep them evenly coated. Then Monday night I cooked them on my George Foreman grill. Like other reviewers, I used a can of sliced pineapple for the juice, and grilled the pineapple slices too, to serve with the chicken. Served with white rice and steamed broccoli. Just, flavorful and delicious. I cut a few of the pieces in half to make them thinner so that the insides would get done without drying out. Even cold out of e fridge, the leftovers tasted great. This would be really good over a salad, too.

Grilled Delmonico Steaks

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2014
I left out the salt, steak seasoning and steak sauce, and cut the soy sauce in half, and this was perfect. Very good marinade for steak.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2013
I screwed these up due to my own mistakes. First problem was that I did not know how to prepare the mashed sweet potatoes from raw ones. second part, my fault entirely, was that I decided to lower the quantity based on one can of beans and 2 sweet potatoes. But I did not remember to reduce the amount of onion. And one whole onion was too much, spoiling the texture and flavor. They might have been good if I lowered the ratio of onion,.

Pizza Pinwheels

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2013
Wow, these were great! I forgot the pizza sauce, but they still came out really good. I did not chop the pepperoni and didn't really measure anything; just put some pepperoni and cheese on each piece and rolled them up. Secured with toothpicks. I used Immaculate crescent rolls, which don't have trans fat. They were delicious. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2013
These were delicious! But I did not use the taco seasoning, and I cooked them for much shorter time. Mine were done at 40 minutes, but I cooked five minutes longer to make them crunchy and ended up burning quite a few. So next time 40 minutes will be all. I sliced them fairly thin and seasoned with Tony Chachere's, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. They were soooo good.

Runzas (Bierocks)

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2013
OK, the four star rating is probably my failure, not the recipe maker's... but I could not make this recipe work, even though the results were delicious anyway! I went to two grocery stores and could not find frozen bread dough. I found of course Pillsbury croissants, biscuits, pizza dough, etc. but no frozen uncooked dough. I ended up getting what I thought were frozen rolls but when I opened the bag, I saw that they were pre-cooked vs. dough. So I ended up making sliders basically, but they were still good. Also I have never cooked cabbage and I only had room in my saucepan for half a head, and had to use another pan for the meat! So I have leftovers. Maybe I will try making my own bread dough... but I would love to find a recipe for these that includes bread instructions because I don't know what time to start making them and prep ahead. Thanks for the yummy recipe; maybe one day I'll figure out how to make it for real!

Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2013
Wonderful! I didn't have apple butter so I used applesauce, and I left out the raisins, but other than that, I followed the recipe and they came out great! Wait, I did one thing differently. I stirred in the wheat germ and nuts because I did not read the recipe very carefully. Still thought they were great, and my picky 18-month-old liked them, too. Always a relief to get him to eat some veggies somehow. Next time, I might tweak and reduce the sugar, and add more whole wheat flour / less white flour, as they were plenty sweet enough. Will take another reviewer's advice if I do and add more liquid so they don't get too heavy or dry. Might try adding mashed banana too instead of the oil, but 1/4 cup is really not bad at all for a recipe like this. Thank you so much for sharing!

Shrimp and Asparagus

Reviewed: May 11, 2013
This was really good! I get sick if I eat too much butter so I cut it down to about 3 tablespoons. That was plenty! I also added green onions to the garlic when sautéing and used bowtie pasta. I boiled the asparagus with the pasta, separated by a steaming basket, which timed perfectly and improved the simplicity. After one bite, my husband said, "This is good! Make it again sometime!" Which is a huge compliment from a picky eater. Thanks for a delicious recipe!

Quinoa Salad with Mint, Almonds and Cranberries

Reviewed: May 9, 2013
Wow! This was amazing! So good! I am impressed that someone so young has such a refined palate. It was a bit of trouble to cut up and add so many ingredients, but well worth it. I used Inca red quinoa and Roma tomatoes because that is what I had. Thanks for sharing your fantastic recipe.

Sauteed Carrots and Leeks

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
Yummy! Thanks for sharing this tasty way to prepare leeks. I was looking for a use besides soup, and these were great. Next time I'll use half the sugar, to suit my personal taste as this was a bit sweet, but the flavor was lovely.

Rosemary Sherry Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
These were amazing! I followed the recipe exactly, and they were so delicious. My husband requested them for next week, as well. I used very thick pork chops, which came out tender and juicy, and even the onions were yummy. Thanks for a great recipe!

Beef Tips and Noodles

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
This was delicious! I accidentally bought a family size cream of chicken soup, so used 2/3 of it anyway just not to waste it, and it was all good. It was a little salty, but I just used more noodles and scooped less sauce on them. My husband liked this, and he is a picky eater. I left out the mushrooms because he doesn't like them, but I'd rather have had them in!

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
I love the originality of these and at first the crunch was great, but then I got a bite that was somewhere between a crunch and a squeak -- odd texture that made my teeth hurt and a sensation like scraping nails on a chalkboard...but probably just my own hang up. I say try the recipe anyway. It's low cal, healthy and unique.

Tangy Pork Chops with Vegetables

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2013
Delicious! I always try to make these as close to original as I can first time. Glad I did. Note here is only for others like me who might not have all ingredients on hand. I used 2 green bell peppers and did not have banana peppers. I used lemon but didn't have lime. And I used red wine vinegar because that's what I had. I did sprinkle a little Cajun seasoning in the chops too but it was probably not needed. They were really flavorful, and the veggies were too. I added about a tablespoon or two of butter at the end, a small pat on each chop, to keep them from going dry and add flavor. I really loved this recipe. Thank you so much for sharing.!!
