Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
Ok, here it is! The cookies themselves tasted good, however, the cookies were a disaster. As a reviewer mentioned, they came out like a flat crumbly disk. I thought I had overmixed the butter. So, for the second batch, I placed the batter in the fridge for 1 hr. No change! They reminded me of Queen Anne's Lace Cookies not oatmeal cookies. A reviewer before me stated it was not the fault of the recipe, however, she had to make adjusts. So, I am sure if followed the recipe as written as I did, she would have had the same experience! I am a very experienced cook, baker & culinary graduate. I don't mind adjusting recipes to my taste but I don't like fixing a broken recipe!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
Good recipe! Always make lasagna when having friends over for dinner on a weekday. I have always used no-boil lasagna noodles so I was a little nervous about this! I followed many reviewers who suggested prepared it the day before. I guess the hot sauce will partially cook the noodles. Hubby thought this was delicious (5 stars). My 5 guests did not rave, they raved about the store bought bread and salad but hey, I think hubby is more a conoisseur of food than they were!

Easy Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
We absolutely loved this! I also used taco seasoning, which I made from this website, Taco Seasoning I. I had no problems with soggy chips but I also used Pace thick and chunky salsa that didn't have a lot of juice. The salsa and beef mixture did not even have to simmer to long! In fact, the chips were crispy!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2009
Spot on! Perfect mix of spices and since I don't like cumin too much, I was able to control the amount to my liking!

Tail Burner Firehouse French Fries

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
The flavors did not blend well! The lemon pepper was too much and I used only 1 1/2 tbsp! I also used only 1 tsp crushed red pepper, 2 tbsp butter and was still not impressed! To modify a recipe as much as I did, is not worth keeping!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2009
These are so delicious! I have been making snickerdoodles for years and this is, by far, hands down, the best recipe I have come across! For Christmas, I jazz these up with red and green sugar crystals-Betty Crocker brand. Just recently, for our son's adoption party, I used the larger baby blue sugar crystals you buy at speciality store and placed three in a cellophane bag with a ribbon and mini-rattle for favors.

Zippy Summer Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
Liked how easy and delicious this dish is! Used crushed garlic and onl 1/2 tsp of pepper flakes...still zippy enough! Wish I had fresh basil, I think it would have even been better!

Baked Pesto Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
So easy! Hubby really loved this. I liked a lot but found the pesto flavor very overwhelming. I love pesto but I guess in smaller amounts. I will make with provolone cheese next time!

Banana Split Cake II

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
WOW! Sooo yummy! We used 2 9-inches disposable pie plates instead of one cake pan and froze the second cake. I hope it unfreezes okay! I will definitely make again, maybe top with peanuts next time!

Quick and Easy Sauteed Spinach

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
Lacking in flavor, in my opinion. Could have used fresh garlic and a little lemon juice.

Shiitake Angel Hair Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
I could not wait to try this recipe and was slightly discouraged when my supermarket did not carry shitakes! I substituted portabellas other than that followed recipe exactly. Can't wait to try shitakes for a more woodsy and earthy taste! Ate with AR's Flat-iron Steak with Balsamic Reduction

Flat Iron Steak with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
This was outstanding! I experienced no complaints with a too vinegary tasting reduction. If cooked properly, this should be exactly as desribed in KMOMMYZ's description, "a sweet & savory syrup". The key is to reduce it to a thick syrup consistency. I also used only 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar.

Sesame Green Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2009
Something different! Hubby really liked. While making these I realized I was out of chicken broth so I did the unthinkable... I strained a can of condensed chicken noodle soup, ugh! I am ashamed to admit that! Oh well, it worked!

Rosemary Chicken with Orange-Maple Glaze

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2009
I am in love with this glaze! I was tempted to lick my plate. I followed the recipe exactly and would not change a thing. I like to sear my chicken and get it nice & brown, then add the liquid to deglaze the pan, picking up all the tasty bits! Maybe try this with pork!

Zucchini Pineapple Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2009
What a delicious bread! Would have been 5-star worthy except I felt it needed more spices and a tad more sweetness. I will definitely make this again. Next time, I will add some chopped walnuts, add a bit of brown sugar, dash of clove and 1 tsp more of cinnamon.

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
A good basic recipe definitely needs more flavor. I added 2 cloves fresh garlic and still was lacking a kick. Hubby liked it a lot. Maybe I will make for him and my son!

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
What a great way to cook bacon! No frying! I had to turn my oven up to 400 degrees. When everything was done, you have a nice crispy flat piece of bacon.

A Very Popular BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
This is a good sauce! Very easy! A different bbq sauce than we are used to but it served the purpose. We would make again.
