Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
Everyone loves these cookies! I make them as large cookies, which makes fewer per batch, but is totally worth it. I have tried chocolate chips and chocolate chunks but thought the chocolate chips tasted better. Also, I have tried to leave the dough in the fridge for an hour, and I have also tried them without chilling the dough, and I thought they came out better without chilling them. Just writing about them is causing me to consider making them right now.

Just an easy, basic recipe w/ a nice flavor and lots of color. I love the smell of this cooking as it wafts through my home. And it's delicious too! I served this on kaiser rolls.

Sweet and Spicy Salmon with Grapefruit Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2014
My husband and I loved this dish. The flavors in the rub were fantastic, and I’ll be trying the rub on other meats because it’s just that good! The salsa was unique and refreshing; it would be perfect for a summer dinner. The jalapeño gives it a nice kick. We’ll definitely be trying this meal again.

Easy Lemon and Herb Blackened Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2014
The flavors were good - lemon was prominent but not overpowering, and the seasoning tasted good with the lemon. These came out moist and tender. The only changes I made were to marinate it in a freezer ziplock bag, because I feel that coats the chicken better and to use garlic-infused grape seed oil in the marinade because I ran out of olive oil. This is a simple recipe, perfect for a quick weeknight dinner. I threw the chicken in the marinade before the gym and cooked chicken for 10 minutes after the gym. I could have maybe cooked it another minute on each side for an even darker color, but it was still very tasty! Served with a side of Thin Spaghetti with Garlic, Red Pepper, and Olive Oil (see other recipe from AR). I will definitely make this chicken again soon!

Polish Kielbasa and Pierogies

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2014
We enjoyed this recipe very much! Delish! We made no changes except to serve with a brown butter/beer/apple cider/dijon mustard sauce. Will try this again soon!

Honey Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
This fruit salad was delicious. I left out the poppy seeds and added sliced nectarines and green grapes to the bananas, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries. They worked well together.

Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
We used these as place settings in place of the decorated dyed-eggs that we usually use for place settings on Easter. I dipped the eggs in Bakers dipping chocolate, and then I piped on dyed frosting to write a name on each of the eggs. They were very cute, and most people enjoyed the taste.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
I make this often, as it is so good. Definitely follow the advice of others about using the shoulder cut and shredding it in BBQ sauce about 2 hours before it is done.

Mini Lemon Meringue Pies

Reviewed: May 7, 2013
These are so good! I doubled the recipe, and they were gone soon after I put them out! I didn't make any changes except to use the Cream Cheese Tart Shells recipe from this site (prebaked for 10 minutes). I made the filling and put it in the shells overnight. The next day, I reheated the pies so that the filling was very hot and piped the meringue onto it. I made a raspberry sauce garnish of raspberries mixed w/ a little sugar and blended until smooth (strained out the seeds with my flour sifter).

Raspberry Pain au Chocolat (Raspberry Chocolate Croissants)

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
I cannot rave enough about this easy and yummy dessert! I made these for guests who each ate 3 or 4 in an hour. They just couldn't stop eating them. I was hoping to have quite a few as leftovers, but there were only 2 left. I made several changes as others suggested: I didn't worry about exact measurements for rolling the pastry, I just kept a general rectangle shape; I didn't measure the nutella or the jam (I used raspberry and strawberry preserves, but the raspberry was the best.); I crimped the edges with a fork; used an egg wash on them before putting them in the oven; used parchment paper on the pan; and checked them after 13 minutes. One or two of them were a little messy on the parchment paper, but it didn't matter, because they tasted so good that people ate them anyways. Definitely serve these with coffee and on plates with forks, because they are messy!

Skillet Green Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
This is an easy recipe. I had never eaten green beans with sour cream, but it tasted good. I served it with Tender Italian Baked Chicken from this site.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2012
Wow, this tastes just like a jalapeno popper! I mixed in some shredded cheddar cheese and topped with a mixture of Panko crumbs and shredded cheddar cheese, rather than the parmesan cheese. Baked in the oven on 400 for 20 minutes and toasted a thinly sliced baguette under the broiler. This was delicious! Next time, I will add more jalapenos for an extra kick.

Betty's Famous Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2012
This is a good recipe for cinnamon rolls. I left out the pecans and maple extract, because I didn't have any, and I accidentally rolled the dough the wrong way, so I came out with 10 giant rolls, but I just cut them in half to serve. :) The bread part came out fluffy, and the taste was sweet, but not too sweet. My glaze was too thick to drizzle, but (since I didn't have a lot of time to continue adding butter), I just smeared it thinly with a spoon, and it melted a bit. I would use this recipe again.

Swiss Chicken Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
We loved this recipe! I made a few changes: 1) I cut the chicken breasts in half lengthwise, so that it would cook faster. To compensate, I doubled the soup, milk, and butter. I used two 6oz boxes of herb-seasoned stuffing mix and added a dash of white wine (Moscato) to the soup/milk mixture. I layered frozen broccoli florets after the Swiss cheese and put down the stuffing mix before generously spooning the soup mixture and the butter over the crumbs. I cooked this on 375 degrees for 50 minutes, which came out perfect. Oh, and I sprinkled the chicken with the following seasonings: fresh ground sea salt & black pepper, whole oregano, parsley, celery seed, basil, garlic powder, rosemary, and a little Garden Veggie Dip Mix (Tastefully Simple brand which is basically flakes of red bell pepper, garlic, onion, spinach, carrot, leek, salt, crushed red pepper, oregano, parsley, basil, thyme, & rosemary). So good!

Mom's Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2013
This recipe is delicious as long as you double the sauce and add the cream cheese mixture to the noodles before layering. I used Johnsonville mild Italian sausages (casings removed) instead of beef which gave it a nice flavor and only used half an onion. This is not the shortest dinner, but it is very good!

Bar-B-Que Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2013
The flavors of this BBQ sauce are wonderful. Much better than store-bought. The only change I made was to add onion powder and minced garlic instead of garlic powder. Served this with the Grilled Chicken and Herbs recipe from this site. Delicious!

This is a basic burger recipe. I enjoyed it, but may add some bacon next time, b/c who doesn't love bacon, right?!

Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Gravy

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
Delicious! I only changed two things. I used 1 cup of Half and Half, rather than the whipping cream, and I did not measure out the blue cheese. I just added a handful or two of the crumbled blue cheese, because I was not sure how many ounces I had. It came out fantastic! I would definitely make this again!
