No Bake Cookies V

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2007
These turned out absolutely perfect! Don't be afraid to use whole oats if you don't have quick oats....doesn't make a difference. I made it EXACTLY as stated. I have made no bakes in the past and had them either set up to fast, or never set up. I would say the directions to this recipe are perfectly on target!

Slow Cooker Venison Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2005
Awesome - and it smelled so good when I walked in the door! I agree, I could barely tell it was venison. Even my son - who does not want anything to do with mushrooms loved it! I made french fries to go with the gravy and he poured the gravy all over his fries and venison! I will definitely make this again. One change I would make - I would use reduced sodium soup and garlic powder instead of salt. The onion soup mix has enough salt in it and I don't feel you need to add more. I did use liquid aminos since I was out of soy sauce, but there isn't much difference in taste there anyway.

Chicken Biscuit Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2005
This was pretty good. I think the temp of the oven was too high though. 450 over browned the biscuits on top and left them slightly gooey on bottom. I had to put back in the oven after the suggested amount of time. Would probably lower the temp to 350 and bake longer.

Whole Wheat Oatmeal Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
I did not have dry milk powder so I subbed non fat milk for the water - kept all other ingredients the same. I only used the dough setting - did not bake the loaf in the bread machine. My son was here and had a sandwich made with the bread and he could not stop commenting on how good it was!

Busy Day Deer

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
I didn't have a green pepper so I used fresh mushrooms but green pepper would probably taste good also. This is what I did: First of all, I did not use the olive oil. When I told Grumpy it called for olive oil he told me not to do it, that you should always use butter when cooking venison. (Yeah, he's my venison "expert" so I have to listen to him!)I sauteed the mushrooms(would have done the same if I had peppers). When they were cooked down I removed the mushrooms from the pan and sauteed the venison. I added the mushrooms back to the pan when the venison was cooked, mixed in the soup mix with 3 cups of the water. I mixed the other 1/2 cup of water with 2 TBSP flour. I found this was not enough flour to thicken this to gravy, so I added a little less than 2 TBSP more flour with just enough water to make it smooth. You should always mix the flour with the cold liquid you are going to add to the hot boilng liquid in your pan to prevent lumps. Thanks for the recipe! It is great for a night when you don't have a lot of time!

Venison Fajitas

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
UPDATE** I made these tonight and without the mistake! This is an awesome recipe I will keep on using. The venison was so tender and the heat was perfect. I did add mushrooms to the pepper and onion mixture. I will make these again, but I will be more careful when measuring! I made a mistake and used too much cayenne. My sons were able to eat it, but the oldest mouth was burning! Grumpy "grumped" because he hates that "mexican food" but he ate it anyway. These get 5 stars because I loved them and my youngest son loved them - even with too much heat! My oldest son would have liked them more if I hadn't messed up the cayenne....

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
I made this exactly as stated and found it had WAY too much baking powder in this recipe. We like the fluffy pancake recipe much better. I will not make this again. On another note, I still cannot understand WHY someone gives a recipe a 5 star rating after they have made all kinds of changes to the recipe.

Toad In a Hole

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
I tried this because it reminded me that my dad would butter and fry bread when I was young and we were on camping trips. I buttered both sides of the bread then cut out the circle. Put the egg in the hole and salted and peppered some. Because I don't like my eggs runny, I covered the pan with a lid to help cook the top of the egg some. After the bottom was browned I flipped the bread over, placed the cheese on top and covered the pan again to help melt the cheese. It wasn't bad at all! The crispy fried bread really is what makes it taste better than just egg and toast.

Chunky Monkey Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
The batter was a bit too think for me so I ended up adding an extra 1/3 cup of flour, then it seemed perfect. My first two pancakes I put on the griddle without the extra flour were very flat, after the flour, puffy and nice! I loved them, Grumpy said he could do without the chocolate....but he's picky anyway! Great recipe. :)

Eggplant with Garlic Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
This is a great recipe to start with. I like to use fresh garlic over dried - and when making Asian sauces I tend to go with brown sugar instead of white. I also switched from soy to tamari - however, as written I'm sure the original is great too! I loved this dish and am very happy to have found it. I've craved Eggplant with Garlic sauce many times over the years and now when the craving hits I have the perfect recipe! Thank you!

Curry-Coconut Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2007
1/2 cup of coconut milk was not enough and I did NOT need to use the cornstartch. If I had, then it would have been way too thick. This tasted good...just not made exactly as written. UPDATE: I made this tonight and the general consensus is there needs to be more sauce. I used 2 tsp of sugar instead to suit our taste, hubby thought it was too spicy I thought it was just right. Next time I will cut the red pepper and double the sauce.

Crab Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
I waited until this morning to rate as I wanted to give time for the flavors to blend. I will admit I was worried about how sweet it would be because of the sugar. DO put it in! It is not sweet at all. I think the Old Bay is what makes this recipe. I wouldn't leave it out. If you don't have it - go get it! This is definetly a keeper.

Lemon Garlic Hummus

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2012
I had to make several changes after I got started. I used two 15 oz cans of chickpeas. I couldn't see having 1/2 cup left over (2 cups was 1-1/2 cans). I ended up using 3 tablespoons sesame butter (asian style with a little heat), 1/3 cup olive oil and 1-1/2 large lemons (came to 7 tablespoons). I sprinkled with a little cayenne for a little added kick and really upped the garlic just for my own taste. I feel if I had made this as written, it would not have been smooth enough for my taste. Made the way I made it, I would give it 5 stars, thought it was awesome. I feel it needs more oil than the recipe stated, but it could just be personal preference in liking a less chunky hummus.

Moist Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
This was a good basic recipe. I like many others here don't care to use so much oil so i used 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup of apple butter. I reduced the sugar to 1-1/2 cups and omitted the walnuts and coconut from the cupcake. I made a coconut flavored cream cheese frosting and toasted some unsweetened coconut to decorate.

Peach Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
These were great. I didn't have enough sour cream so I used some vanilla yogurt to make up the 1/2 cup.

Rosemary Zucchini Sticks

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
I cannot believe in all the years I have made breaded zucchini that I never baked it. How much more healthier is this! Loved it. I didn't use the rosemary, I thought it might clash with my seasoned breadcrumbs. Maybe I was wrong, but we didn't seem to need it anyway. I served these with marinara and ranch dressing. Yum!

Grands!® Monkey Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2013
It was an awful lot of sugar and butter and I actually ended up throwing some of the mixture away because after my 10 minute cool time, when I turned it out onto a platter, a lot of brown sugar mixture was still in the pan. I wouldn't use as much next time - I'd probably use half the sugar and butter. However, that said, this is a yummy treat to have once and a while.

Crunchy Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
Very good but be very careful cooking the corn with the syrup in the microwave. Stir it every few seconds (~10 seconds). Too long and it will burn. A quick and easy fix for a caramel corn craving!

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
My not so red velvet turned out very delicious. After I started to make these I realized I only had pink food color. I used that but didn't get that "red" look. I will definitely make these again and have some red color! This cupcake is different from others I have tried. It has a heavier texture but isn't heavy (weight wise). I absolutely love it and it is a definite keeper for me.
