Croutons

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
Used a whole french baguette for this recipe. I used half for croutons and the smashed up the other half for seasoned bread crumbs. Stored in ziplock bags. This was eassy! Thanks!

Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
A picky eater loved it. I substituted crushed bread crumbs for parmesan cheese simply because I didn't have it on hand at the time. Incredibly easy to make. Mine was ready in 8 minutes @ 450 degrees. Thankkkks!

Ultimate Maple Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
For the coating, I could not find "Maple Sugar" at the local grocery store, so with substituted with 1/4 cup white sugar + 1/2 tsp Imitation Maple Extract and mixed it together until all the globs were broken up, and then added the extra 1/4 cup of white sugar (instead of the 1/2 cup suggested) & it made plenty for the coating. Don't worry about the balls being too sticky, they're easy to work with once coated. Since I don't like getting my hands all sticky, I dipped a 1/2 TBSP measurement spoon into flour each time before scooping up that amount of dough, then tossed it in the sugar coat mix. I practically scraped the bowl, and to my surprise, yielded exactly 36. I baked for exactly 10 minutes, no more & no less, and I let it cool on stone plates. They are very soft when you bring them out, but once cool, they're so soft on the inside! I & the roomies loved them! I've baked only a handful of times & these came out so wonderful! Thank you, thank you, thank you for the great recipe!

Pretty Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
Delicious! So easy to make. I just used 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce (not a big fan of sodium), substituted orange juice for the lemon juice, and marinaded for two hours. Followed everything else accordingly though and it came out so flavorful! Slapped it on the grill and continuously brushed with the excess marinade until fully cooked. :) We had none left on our plates! Thanks for this awesome marinade recipe! Will definitely be using again.

Hot Apple Cider

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
The boyfriend is sick and I wanted to give him something other than hot tea. Followed directions to a tittle and we both liked it very much. Thank you! Will be making this again.

Beer Batter Waffles

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2011
INCREDIBLY EASY & TASTY! Self-rising flour can be made on your own. For every CUP of flour, add 1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder + 1/2 tsp salt - and just whisk together well in a separate bowl. If you're concerned about the rise, for every cup, take out 2 tsp of the finished mixture. This was my first time "beating eggs until stiff white peaks form" and I was successful! It does make a difference in the recipe as it gives it that extra "oomph". For the egg whites, make sure they are at room temperature, & mix them specifically in a glass or copper bowl (egg whites for white peaks form better this way). Make sure the glass/copper bowl you are using is absolutely clear of any oils or any water as it will be difficult to form these peaks! To help with the process in the beginning, you can use a pinch of salt to strengthen those proteins, and whisk away quickly! This might take some time, but you should notice many bubbles forming, and it'll actually start to turn white. About half way through mixing, add only a drop or two of some sort of acid, such as lemon juice or vinegar will do. Keep whisking. Look for photos of "egg whites stiff white peaks". It should almost begin to look like whip cream. This was slightly tiresome as I did this by hand, my electric hand mixer was too loud to use in the morning. Lastly, I used "Pyramid Haywire Hefeweizen" beer. I poured it in slowly and it immediately begin to bubble, but that's normal. when pouring into flour I suppose. Everything was great!

Chicken Encilantrada

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
I was skeptical about trying out this recipe, especially when I put everything together in the pan. I thought I had cilantro, but I really only had GREEN ONIONS - which you can imagine is what I used as a substitution. Though, that was my ONLY change! I had marinated some chicken that I had frozen, so before I left for work I stuck it in the fridge to thaw it out. Cooked the chicken, set it aside and followed directions accordingly. I used "HERDEZ SALSA VERDE" for the green salsa and measured exactly 7 oz. We made our own chips with just flour tortilla and vegetable oil. Served it over jasmine rice seasoned with black pepper. A dish you MUST SERVE HOT! Despite that I didn't have cilantro and used green onions instead, it was still soo delicious!! Boyfriend and I loved it and both had fun making it! I'll be sure to use cilantro next time! I think for those who feel that this is lacking flavor, definitely marinate your chicken and make sure to serve hot! Thanks so much for the recipe!!

Big Smokey Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
Sooo delicious! Cut the recipe down to make 4 servings. I made my own grill seasoning since I didn't want to spend the 5 bucks for it. I couldn't find the canned chipotle peppers at the local grocer, so I used 1/4 cup apricot+mango chipotle sauce (it was all that I could find that would even come close?). I was afraid of using the real garlic, but went ahead anyways - couldn't taste it AND gets rid of that gross meat smell, I'm glad I did it. Topped them with mild cheddar or provolone slices, and ate them with wheat buns. We might try them "california western" style next time, you know, with onion rings and some sort of bbq sauce. Looove it! Thanks for the recipe!

Pebber Nodder (Danish Christmas Cookies)

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
Easy to make, followed the recipe exactly, I just cut it in half. I forgot when I left it in to bake, so I think I had it in for 5 minutes too long. They're soft & crunchy and still delicious! You can't tell if they're cooked or not just by looking at the top so definitely check the bottom of the cookie at 10 minutes. I powdered with sugar afterwards and it's scrumptious! It seems like it'll go well with tea, coffee or milk. Mmm mm.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
Muah! These are delicious!! I'm a novice with baking (I know that sounds ridiculous, but the whole whisking task is just difficult for me) and I was able to make these so fast and everyone loved them! I cut the recipe in half because it was only for about 4 people including myself. I yielded about 10, but a couple of them were pretty big scoops. I followed this the almost to the tittle! I just forgot to add salt! I brushed it with the butter mixture before the oven and afterwards. Lastly, someone suggested to warm them up the day after (I did about 20 seconds per biscuit) and they are indeed a good breakfast snack.

Beef Yakitori

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
Yum yum!! We loved it! I followed the suggestions of other reviewers for fear of it being too salty. I used only 1 TBSP of sugar, 1/4 cup soy sauce + 1/4 water, & I substituted red wine vinegar for the lemon juice (I didn't have lemons). Everyone else thought it was perfect and had seconds. I personally thought it was a bit "salty" for my taste, but I also lack sodium in my diet, so my taste buds aren't used to it much, but the fact that a picky 8 year old wanted more (this little boy hates ice cream) was enough for me to give it 5 stars! I just might use low sodium soy sauce next time. Very flavorful & definitely a staple in the rotation now.
