Mom's Apple Fritters

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2014
I was pretty disappointed how these turned out after all the work I put into them. They were soggy and bland. I tasted as I fried and kept trying to make adjustments. I made a couple super tiny ones - think the size of a quarter - that turned out fairly crisp. And as I fried I added cinnamon and more sugar to the batter and those were much more flavorful. I kept checking the oil temp to ensure it was hot enough. The original recipe tastes more like a soggy apple quick bread than a fritter.

Bayou Chewy Honey Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2014
Very yummy! Mine aren't quite sticking together perfectly but they will probably harden more. It's only been 45 minutes. They are quite sweet, which I like. Very easy to make. I subbed cashews for peanuts since that's all I had. Love the crunch from the rice cereal!

Pecan Turtle Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2013
I regret finding this recipe because they are so addictive! (And so easy) They are delicious and perfect as written - light, crisp, buttery, a salty sweet delight! Make sure you don't overcook the caramel - and I did mine in a non-stick saute pan rather than a sauce pan. I was very concerned when the crust was so crumbly - almost powdery - but once I poured on the caramel it mixed with the crust and nuts and created a wonderful treat.

Reuben Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
I liked this. I will use low sodium broths in the future as the saltiness from the broths and the corned beef made it a little too salty for my guests. I added a little caraway seed too, since you often find that on rye bread. It didn't quite taste like a reuben, I missed the sweetness of the 1000 island dressing, but was a good soup overall. I also may use more beef and less vegetable broth in the future as I prefer the beefy flavor.

Asian Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
I wasn't too thrilled with the flavor. Probably would have been better with some honey or more sweetness. Good heat though. Will try again with more sweetness.

Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
Great recipe for cake decorating. I made my son's Spongebob birthday cake with this and it worked beautifully. I used the butter flavored Crisco in the can, andI was out of vanilla and used almond extract instead and it was still delicious!

Shrimp Garden Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
Yum! Great salad idea with ingredients I always seem to have around. I did use red bell pepper instead of celery though, and some 26/30 shrimp we grilled last night. Tossed with a light buttermilk ranch dressing. Will add this to my regular rotation!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
Awesome! Made it half a dozen times or so, added some cinnamon or apple pie spice a couple times. Even won a local baking contest with it! You should be very proud!

Parmesan Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
Tasted OK, but some of the breading fell off. Chop was a little dry. I do love sage. NOt sure if I"ll make again.

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
Pretty good. Found it slightly dry. I wanted more dressing I guess. I also threw in grape tomatoes, cucumbers and skipped the chicken. The quinoa is plenty of protein for a meal in itself.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2010
After we ate I said, that was good, same as usual, but I didn't think it was as good as the grocery store. My husband said, I thought you got it from the grocery store. So I guess I'm my worst critic and it was better than usual. It only took me 4 hours to bake, I cut back on the cayenne and added sage. We love sage paired with poultry. I also only marinated it for four hours. Next time I will do overnight. Totally worth the time it takes. Don't forget to use the drippings for an awesome gravy!

Adzuki Bean Mango Stir Fry with Cilantro Lime Coconut Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2010
I feel badly giving such a negative review, but I thought the flavors were strange, they didn't meld well, and the sauce was too thin. I really don't know what I would do to improve upon this. I did execute exactly as written, except my aduki beans were dry so I soaked them overnight before cooking. Maybe this just wasn't suited to my tastes.

Peanut Butter and Fudge Swirl Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
Delish! I used all light products and it still felt very full flavored to me. I had everything on hand but the crust which I bought pre-made. Otherwise I used reduced fat cream cheese, peanut butter, cool whip and sugar substitute. It eliminated about 150 calories per serving. I had to try it after about an hour (couldn't wait four hours!) and I loved it. I'm sure it will be even better tomorrow!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2010
Very delicious recipe. Reminds me of General Tso's chicken. It was too spicy for me. To get an idea of my tolerance, I usually eat medium heat salsa. The second time I made this I doubled the sauce and marinated the chicken cubes in it for about five hours. Then I discarded the marinade and cooked the chicken in the remaining sauce. I ate the leftovers on a salad for lunch today. It was even better the next day. Thanks for the great recipe!

Peanut Butter Logs

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2010
I love that this is one of the quickest treats I've ever done. When I added the sugar, the dough became fairly dry and I had a little difficulty mixing in the cereal and getting the nuts to stick. Maybe just add the sugar a little at a time till the dough seems to be of a good consistency. The contrast of the salty peanuts is wonderful against the sweet crispy peanut butter mixture.

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
I roasted my own peppers which were delicious. The flavor was better the longer it sat. The only problem with this recipe is the nutrition facts are wrong. I used Spark recipes calculator and it came out to 94 calories per serving. Still not bad, just a big difference if you're watching your weight.

Clams Casino

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
I have made this twice and perfected it to my family's tastes. I changed two things. Rather than chop the clams and mix them in, I simply loosened them from their shell and put the filling on top of them. I also cut the amount of bread crumbs down to about 1/3 cup. That said the flavors and spice mixture of this recipe are perfection! Thanks for the great recipe!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
Delicious! The dough will be moister than regular chocolate chip cookie dough, but it's supposed to be. The only changes I made were I cut the chocolate chips down to 1 1/3 cups and lined my baking sheets with silicone baking sheets. They turned out better than any chocolate chip cookie I've ever made. I will use this recipe every time I make them! Thanks!!

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2008
Awesome recipe! I love that I always have the prescribed ingredients on hand. I also recently invested in a silicone whisk, so I now make this recipe in a nonstick sautee pan. Thanks! It's perfect!
