Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2014
I haven't made this particular recipe, but I can say that using fresh chicken breast is a MUST, I usually fry some up in a pan in a small amount of butter and then cut it up when it's JUST done (it will bake for 30 minutes, you don't want dry chicken). I also use buffalo wing sauce, Chef John's Buffalo Wing Sauce on this website is pretty awesome, but you could buy buffalo wing sauce too. I generally keep all the other ingredient amounts listed...some people like blue cheese, but I personally wouldn't do blue cheese dressing, crumbles instead :) I mix it all up, and put it in a baking dish and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Can't imagine buffalo chicken dip can get any better than that! Oh, and I like it with tortilla chips. 4 stars since I never made the recipe that's listed...but doing it the way I just stated...gains it 6 stars!!!

Pumpkin Maple Pie Supreme

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
Best pumpkin pie I have ever tasted! I would go for a homemade crust next time though... and yes I bought the real maple syrup...too afraid to try something else because it tasted SO good!

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
Very delicious!! I followed the advice of other reviewers and added vanilla to the caramel sauce and cinnamon to the apples. The only thing I wish I would have done differently was an egg white wash on the bottom of crust to keep from getting a soggy crust, and to mix the apples with most of the caramel and then spread the rest on top of the lattice...my sauce was WAY to thick to pour over top, I had to break the lattice work. Still tasted great though!

Pineapple Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
I rated this recipe based on the outcome I had with my changes. I followed the advice of other reviewers and doubled the bread slices. I made a double batch of this and it fit in ( i think) an 11x15 pan. So in all I used 20 slices of bread, 1 cup of BUTTER (plus i greased the pan with butter), 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 20 oz cans of crushed pineapple not DRAINED, and 8 eggs. It came out PERFECT!!! I personally could have added about 1/4-1/2 cup more sugar but it was fine with just 1 cup total for a double batch. I baked it covered for the first half hour and then uncovered it for the last half hour. Then it sat for about an hour in a warm place while I cooked everything else. Went VERY well with ham and everyone that ate it loved it!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2012
Wonderful pancakes with outstanding flavor! I did let my batter sit for awhile. I served these with blueberry sauce (from this site) and a homemade whipped cream.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: May 2, 2012
I'm not sure what exactly it was that I did wrong... but the dough was very hard to work with and was very sticky. I read reviews before making this, so I did make changes but it seems like it worked for other people. I used all purpose instead of bread (which i read would be fine.. maybe that was the problem) and I used 1/2 cup white wheat. I added garlic powder to the flour and let the dough rest for 30 min... oh and I didn't use a mixer, just stirred. The end result wasn't bad, but i had to pretty much spread it on a pizza stone. Next time, I think I would want to follow directions exactly the way they are written if I'm not familier with that type of dish.

Asiago Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2012
I thought the dish was amazing, with just a slight few changes.... I tried to lighten it up a bit (but since it was my first time making, didn't want to alter too much) I used 3/4 cup 2% milk and 2 1/2 cups heavy cream... I did double the garlic, and used a little over 1/2 cup asiago in the sauce and omitted the green onion. When I made the sauce I first sauteed the onions in 2.5 tbsp butter, then added garlic and then the cream, bouillon, cheese, cornstarch mix, tomatoes, and fresh parsley. I let that simmer while I cooked the chicken in the bacon pan (after draining almost all the grease), added some garlic, and chicken broth to that pan and cooked till done... Cut up chicken, added to sauce, added the cooked and crumble bacon (I have found it easiest to cut up bacon into pieces with kitchen shears and then fry it and drain it in a strainer) and then tossed it with the pasta...added extra asiago on top. After all that, it was still missing something, I think it needs red peper flakes or cayanne...definitely some salt... my husband said it was kind of bland. Flavor was excellent... just needs a little boost. I know that my version is not quite the orignal, but I found this to work best and easiest for prep and taste.

Homemade Maple Syrup

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
This was pretty good... if you are used to pure maple syrup you will be dissappointed if you expect it to taste like that. By itself it's not very good but when eaten on our french toast it was good. I'd say better than what you'd get with aunt jemima or mrs butters worth. I think next time I will add a bit of butter to the syrup.

Blueberry Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2012
I can't believe how good this is! I followed the recipe as it's written and absolutely love it. I could just eat it by itself (and i have)! I made it last night to go with crepes, and then used my leftovers for pancakes (Fluffy Pancakes) with whipped cream! If you eat this sauce with whipped cream, which i highly recommend, then make the whipped cream yourself... you'll be glad you did.

Crepes

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2012
These turned out great! It was helpful to watch the video on this site as well. I appreciate the reviewer (it might be the one right before me, the french chef) adding in the bit about the butter and egg. I was not brave enough to do the one egg yolk... but i will try it like that next time. 1/2 tbsp of butter was perfect instead of 1 1/2 tsp oil. I was making dessert crepes, so i added ( i think) 3 tbsp of sugar to the batter. If the pan was not hot enough when the batter was poured in, i found that my crepe likely would break when i flipped it. I made a cream cheese filling for the inside, then drizzled a homemade caramel or chocolate sauce on top then topped it with homemade whipped cream. YUMMM!
