Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
These are the best chocolate chip cookies ever. This is the recipe I have been looking for for years. I did add more vanilla. I also added a combination of semi-sweet chips, milk chocolate chips and chocolate chunks, and I added more than the recipe calls for...alot more like a bag of each of the chips and a half bag of the chunks, plus chopped walnuts. My family can't get enough of them. Everyone wants the recipe. I love how they don't spread out. They are great.

Penne with Chicken and Pesto

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
We just had this for dinner tonight and all I can say is YUM! Even my 2 year old son LOVED it. The only thing I would do differently next time is double the sauce because it was just a tad dry and we like things more saucy. Other than that it was fantastic. My hubby said this was a definate keeper and it is.

French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
This casserole was DELICIOUS! I did make it in a 11x7 baking dish, followed the recipe except I added the teaspoon of cinnamon to the egg mixture along with about 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, poured it over the bread and tossed to coat. While that was sitting for 10 mins. I made a simple praline topping of 1/2c. butter, 1/2c. packed brown sugar, 1/2c. chopped pecans, 1 tbsp. light corn syrup, a heaping 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg-combine all in a small saucepan, bring to a boil and remove from heat, spread evenly over soaked bread. It only took about 35 mins. to bake, but my oven is really hot. Anyway, fantastic base recipe and very delicious results. My 2 year old son loved it. Will be making this again!!

Hamburger Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
I have been making these for years. I usually make them for an outdoor gathering or Fourth of July celebrations. The only thing I do differently is that I do not put them into the oven, I use colored chocolate for the "ketchup" and "mustard" and allow to dry, (this acts as a glue to hold everything together). I put the yellow chocolate on the bottom for the "mustard" (to adhere the vanilla wafer to the peppermint patty), and Red chocolater on the top for the "ketchup" (to hold all of the "lettuce" and top of "bun" together. Also, instead of brushing the tops w/ water I use corn syrup, sprinkle on the sesame seeds and allow to dry. The tops get a shiny look to them, and they look more authentic to me that way.

Proper English Cottage Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
I make this every year for our St Patty's Day feast. I do not add the cinnamon, use ketchup instead of tomato paste and use a box of frozen peas and carrots. After I put on the mashed potatoes, I sprinkle with cheddar cheese. My family really enjoys this meal.

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
I make this every year for St. Patty's Day. I put onions, potatoes, carrots and cabbage wedges in bottom of the crockpot and then place the corned beef on top. I pack the brown sugar all over the meat and then pour on the Guinness. I also add about 1 cup of water. I cook on low for 10 hours. This is the best corned beef meal I have ever had!

Italian Rice Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE!!! I make these rice balls all the time, but a little differently. I add about 1/4-1/2 cup finely chopped onion, about 1/2 tsp. garlic powder and 1-8oz. can tomato sauce, along w/ the other ingredients.If the mixture is a little too wet I add some extra parmesan cheese or breadcrumbs. I form them into balls and stuff a cube of mozzarella cheese into the center,sealing it completely inside, then fry until golden. FANTASTIC!

Sauteed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
I thought these turned out really good! I halved the recipe b/c I only had 1/2 pound of mushrooms. I melted the butter and added the mushrooms to begin to cook, then I sprinkled the ranch mix over and sauteed until tender. I think the time may be a little off in the recipe though, b/c it did not take 30 min. to cook maybe more like 15. Could be b/c I halved the recipe.Anyways, they went great w/ our grilled steaks and I would make these again.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Sushi Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
Anytime I make my 2 year old sandwiches he pulls them apart and makes a huge mess. I was looking for something different, and stumbled onto this recipe. I made it for him for lunch today and OMG! he LOVED it! He didn't pull it apart at all, he just sat and ate it. What a great recipe! I would have never thought to do that. I may try to do a ham and cheese w/ mustard sushi roll next time, b/c that's his favorite. Will DEFINATELY be making this for him again!

Basic Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
I thought this was a really tasty chicken salad. I did add some chopped sweet onion, because I like onion in chicken salad. Also, I chopped my chicken and veggies really fine, because I like a smoother texture, but kept the almonds in the regular size pieces. This added great texture to the salad. Great recipe!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
I thought this cormbread was wonderful! Just as cornbread should be, dense, moist and delicious. Didn't have any buttermilk, so I made my own with 1 tbsp. white vinegar and enough milk to equal 1 cup. Turned out perfect.
