Excellent Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2006
These were nice oatmeal cookies, but not excellent. My husband really liked them but I thought they felt like they wanted to crumble when you picked them up. I also substituted 1 c raisins for the nuts.

Zucchini Parmesan

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2006
WOW - this was delicious!! We just added a little asiago cheese to the mozzarella. Great way to get your veggies and use up some zucchini. It was a little watery after baking - may saute the zucchini next time in hopes of reducing the water content.

Fried Egg Sandwich

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2006
This goes back to my childhood - it's an easy and yummy meal - I don't use ketchup and like a little Miracle Whip instead of mayo.

Oriental Cold Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2006
Nice, easy recipe but I think it would be a lot simpler to break the noodles into 3" pieces than cut them after they are cooked! I'd try this recipe again with maybe some green onions for color. UPDATE: I made this again with cold whole wheat spaghetti and it worked great. Also added some peas and grilled chicken to make it a whole meal. Yum!

Strawberry Pie II

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2006
I thought this was a little on the sweet side - the crushed berry filling tasted like strawberry jam. I guess I was expecting something more light and berry tasting. I'll try again and cut back on the sugar a bit.

Graham Cracker Crust II

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2006
Shame on me for not reading the reviews before making this crust! I always get confused about what makes up "1" cracker - I guessed wrong and figured 2 crackers per sheet and had WAY too many crumbs and a crust that fell apart. Otherwise, this is a nice, simple graham cracker crust recipe.

Sour Cream-Rhubarb Squares

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2006
This was rather disappointing the first night but did taste better the next day. I put in a little more rhubarb and I'm glad I did. It felt like something was missing.

Irish Boiled Dinner (Corned Beef)

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2006
My husband made this for dinner and everyone LOVED it. Since they have all been to Ireland, I guess you can say this tastes authentic!

Cali's Sinful Creme Brulee

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2006
Very good - I loved the twist the chocolate added. Simple but decadent! The vanilla was a bit too much, however. Next time I'll use my own favorite creme brulee recipe and just coat the dishes with melted chocolate. Also I used whole milk (lactaid) with pretty good results - two of them set up well and the other two were a little loose, but still tasted good.

Cheese Fondue

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2006
This was very good - for some reason the cheese started to separate, so it had a layer of oil. Maybe because we cooked it too long? We bought a good Gruyere, but used leftover sliced swiss cheese from the deli - it tasted great!

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2006
WOW!! I didn't know cauliflower could taste this good! We love garlic - others may find it to be too much in this dish. If only all veggies tasted this good!

Blue Cheese Dip II

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
This was good, but too much mayo and the dip felt SO heavy. Probably will not make again or maybe substitute Miracle Whip for the mayo.

Cheesy French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2006
This was tasty, but a little on the greasy side. We used a mini baguette and served them bite-sized.

Real French Onion Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2006
The wine was way too overpowering. I couldn't even finish my bowl. It also didn't have the nice richness that makes a good French Onion soup.

Brown-Eyed Susan Sweet Potato Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2006
Yum! These were delicious - better after standing overnight. Didn't even need the frosting but it IS delicious! When using the icing I reduced the white sugar in the batter to 1/2 c. I substituted 1/2 c unsweetened applesauce for 1/2 of the oil with excellent results. Also, I was able to easily make 24 cupcakes instead of sheet cake and 1/2 a batch of icing will frost all 24 cupcakes. I made 1/2 with the chocolate chips and 1/2 without and both tasted great. This seems like a recipe that would freeze well, so I froze a few too. I will update my review when they thaw. UPDATE: they tasted GREAT after having been frozen - just let them thaw in the fridge and they were as moist and yummy as fresh baked.

Slow Cooker Chili II

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2006
I made this for a set of new parents - froze half and left half in their fridge. They thought it tasted great, but my hubby thought it would have used more seasoning (hence the 4 stars). It was very easy to make in the crock pot. I used 1 1/3 lbs of ground beef, 28 oz can of whole tomatoes (ran a knife around in the can to rough chop them up) and pinto beans instead of cannelini beans (didn't think cannelini beans were in the true spirit of chili!)

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2005
These were delicious! I gave them as gifts with a jar of organic jam and people loved it. They taste like big, sweet flaky biscuits - so they also taste great with honey! In the days after I made them I put them in the microwave for 10-15 sec to warm them up before eating. Also, I stored them in a paper bag so they wouldn't get soft. UPDATE: on my second try I used 3/4 c of sugar and they were still nicely sweet. I also split the dough in half and left half plain and the other half with 1/2 c semi sweet chocolate chips. Since Starbucks doesn't carry their chocolate chunk scones anymore these will more than do!! Also, I ran out of cream of tartar but they still tasted good, just didn't rise as much - don't know if that was a coincidence or not.

Cinnamon-Roasted Almonds

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2005
DELICIOUS!! I used raw almonds and 3/4 t of cinnamon and I think they turned out perfect. Someone mentioned using roasted almonds, but since you are roasting them youself for 1 hour that seems like they would taste kind of burned.

Caramel Pretzel Nut Popcorn

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2005
Yum! This is very tasty and really pretty easy (and cheap!) to make - the paper bag trick is a good idea but there is so much popcorn in there and the caramel coating kind of made a big puddle in the middle and the bag was almost too heavy to shake very much! So I shook it but also had to stir it w/ a long wooden spoon, then spread it out on waxed paper to let it dry and get crisp again. The stuff that I did leave in the bag stuck pretty badly, so I wouldn't recommend leaving the coated popcorn in there. I also used unsalted dry roasted peanuts and unsalted butter.

Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2005
We LOVED these, but never having made candy before I thought the instructions seemed a little too simple! After making these and finding somethings out the hard way I have a couple of modifications: make the peanut butter filling first and let it cool while painting the cups. I also melted the chips in two batches, otherwise the chocolate hardens before you get to use it for the top layer. If using stovetop watch carefully – if the chocolate gets too hot it will seize and not melt!! I melted 1 c chips and 1 T shortening in microwave for 1 minute, stirred and microwaved for additional 30 seconds or until melted and smooth. After painting the cups I let them chill and then formed the cooled peanut butter filling into 30 little discs the size of quarters. The filing was kind of hard and crumbly, but just warm it up in your had for a second and it gets easy to work with. (I also had enough filling to make 60 cups, not just 30!) I put a disc in each cup then placed the cups in a jelly roll pan (or something w/ sides), melted the 2nd half of the chocolate chips, spooned about ½ t melted chocolate on top of the filling and then after finishing every 4 or 5 cups I tapped the pan on the table to even the chocolate out and remove air bubbles - this gave it a perfectly smooth finish and professional look!
