Omelet in a Mug

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2012
This was Good. Not great. Certainly works for a quickie breakfast. My son is a Welder who lives on the road in hotels. Must tell him about this. Per other reviewers - I used a splash of milk two 2 whole eggs - whisked them good with a fork. I then added bacon and cilantro. Quick mix again. Cooked in a 2 Cup Glass Measuring Cup sprayed with butter spray, for 1 minute. Stirred with a knife, added the cheese and hot sauce and nuked for 45 more seconds. Good. Not fantastic, but would do it again if I needed a quickie breakfast.

Extra Easy Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2012
These are just like the other reviewers described. Muffin Tops. Added Chocolate Chips and baked for 12 minutes in my gas oven. 14 year old gives them five stars. 17 year old said 4 stars. They smell good. Would be better as muffins.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012

Graham Streusel Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
Made this last weekend and took the advise of other reviewers. Tweaker alert: Added 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon to the coffee cake batter. Another reviewer said 1 1/3 c. graham cracker crumbs=1 sleeve graham crackers.(Thanks for that!) Added a splash of vanilla. Up'd oil to 1/3 cup. Added 1/2 tsp. salt to Streusel. Did not make the icing. It didn't need it and the teenagers 14-19 years old LOVED IT! Made the house smell amazing!

Bacon Cheese Frittata

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
I printed a recipe on 2/19/2012 called; Bacon Cheese Frittata. Just made it this morning for the 1st time. This recipe for a Bacon Cheese Frittata is exactly like the one from 2/19/12, which is not on AR anymore?? Regardless, this is the exact recipe submitted by someone else and it was delish! Easy and fast and DH loved it. I used Costco Precooked Bacon and used about 10 pieces. Nuked for 1.20 seconds on paper towels. Let cool and then crumpled. Stirred all ingredients in the pie dish once I had added them all. Will make this again!

S'more Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
Used Ghiradelli Brownie Mix - 2 bags for a 13 X 9 Batch. (Costco) It has chocolate chips in the mix. Baked per box directions for 45 min. Last 7 min. added the s'mores mixture. Used 2 heaping handfuls of mini marshmellos, a 10 oz bag of milk chocolate chips and 6 graham crackers that I put in a baggie to "smish". Topped Brownies in the last 7 minutes of baking and put back in the oven. Perfect! Teenagers rated it 5 stars and said; "So BOMB!" Looked like a cavity to me, but smells amazing!

Chef John's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
Tweaker alert. I used the basic recipe but changed the seasonings due to my "NON-Gourmet" children who will never eat Thyme flavored anything. The sauce recipe works fantastic & I was quite proud of myself for pulling this off. You should not leave the stove during the sauce whisking portion. The reviews talked a lot about sauce vs. pasta amounts. My men like sauce. I used a 16 oz large elbow macaroni package. I "sort of" doubled the sauce. It was perfect. I am writing this up because I use other people's suggestions all the time. Hope this helps someone! I used: 1/2 c. butter, 1/2 cup flour, 1 T. Chili Powder (think chili), 1/4 + teaspoon of Red Chili Flakes, 5 cups of 2% milk, 1 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce, 3 tsp. Kosher Salt, 5 good handfuls of already grated Cheddar/Jack Mix (Costco), 1 good squirt of Dijon. Followed the sequence of directions, but changed the seasoning & amounts. For the crust - I discovered I DID NOT have the Panko Break Crumbs I thought I had. I used 2 T. Butter with 1/2 cup Italian Bread Crumbs + 1/4 c. Crunchy Onions (think green bean casserole), mixed well, sprinkled on top & baked in a 10 X 15 - greased. Wonderful - my men ate 1/2 of the tray last night & I am sure the rest will be gone today! Thanks Chef John for the basic recipe! Update: I still do what I wrote in my original "tweak" of this recipe, but if this is for an adult buffet, I have added jarred Jalapeno slices at the very last stage of putting it in the pan. It gets rave reviews!

Classic Hash Browns

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2012
I watched Chef John's video on this recipe & realized that my fresh taters always turned brown. I had given up on using fresh potatoes for hash browns & had turned to frozen. I used my food processor to grate an entire big yellow onion. Next I grated 8 russets & added that to the onion. Yum - I kept flipping these to make sure all of it turned brown & yummy! Rinsing potatoes in cold water, like rice. Who knew! Love that I learn something new all the time on this site!

Chili Seasoning Mix II

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
Per other reviewers who said it did not need flour. Did not add the flour or sugar. It does not need sugar if it is slow cooked. I used 4 full rounded tsp. of chili powder, 1 level teaspoon of chili flakes & everything else was according to the recipe. I used 5 T. of this Seasoning for 1+ pound of each of the following: Ground Sirloin, Ground Chicken & Ground Pork, all mixed together in one pot! Cooked the "meats" with 2 diced onions, drained fat. Used four regular sized cans of chopped stewed tomatoes and 1 can Hunts Garlic & Herb Tomato Sauce (big). Sorry for the lack of measurements. This is great seasoning for "Family Friendly" Chili. Pouring rain outside, fire in the fire place, everyone fed! 5 stars! Everyone liked it. Will probably be in even better tomorrow!

Fiber One® Chocolate-Peanut Butter Haystacks

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
I used Natural Peanut Butter & Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips. The whole house smelled like Peanut Butter. I used my double boiler to do the melting segment. I thought that would give me more control. Kids are taking them to a gathering tonight. I added little white chocolate chips to 1/2 the batch, & Coconut to the other 1/2 of the batch. Not in love. They are fine.

TABASCO® Grilled Peppers and Onions

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
Why have I not done this before? So simple & so good. I added a HEAPING Tablespoon of jarred, crushed Garlic (Garlic is our thing!) and did not add the Sugar (not our thing). The peppers & onions slow cooked & were sweet and delicious. Used Red & Yellow Peppers because that is what I had. This would be amazing with additional veggies tossed into the mix. Seriously good & it was great comfort food! The Tabasco added just the perfect amount of twang, not heat! Dinner was great! Thanks for the recipe!

Chocolate Banana Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
3 large mashed bananas, yellow cake mix, 1/3 cup cocoa (to make it chocolate), 1/3 cup water & the 3 eggs & 1/3 c. oil as directed in this recipe. Added 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips per other reviewers. Baked in a Bundt pan for 38 minutes till toothpick ready. Cooled & covered in Chocolate Ganache from this site. Teenagers comment: "This is so Bomb!" Have not tasted it yet, but 17 year old was calling his friends to come over here to taste it! Conversation overheard; "Dude, You need to come over & taste this Bomb Cake My Mom Made!"

Awesome Italian Hoagie Spread

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
I made this as written first....eyeballed it & thought that it would be gone is 10 seconds with my house of men. Tasted it. It was very good. 5 stars! The only sub I made on the original recipe was to use the package of mini heirloom tomatoes (I cut them in big pieces) because that was what I had on hand. Tweaked it because after I made it - it would not feed 15, which seems to be how many I cook for. Doubled everything except the mayo & added 1/2 cup (chopped them) fire roasted peppers (Trader Joe's Jar), Red Onion (chopped) Granulated Garlic - 2 heaping teaspoons) 1 tsp. Italian Seasoning, 1 can chopped stewed tomatoes with liquid (lower fat than adding more mayo). Let the whole thing sit in the fridge for an hour before the Menfolk found it & started eating it. Let's just say it should have fed 15 when made. Huge Bowl! There is about 1 1/2 cups left 3 hours later. Good Man Food & I liked it too!

Creamy Italian Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
There are 4 hungry Man/Boys (ages 17-22) at my table inhaling this. I asked; "How many stars?" They said; "Ten!" I would give this a 4 - kinda reminds me of cafeteria food. Not my thing. The man/boys are happy! I cooked this with 3 large frozen chicken breasts & knew I would be gone all day at work. It got 7 hours in the crock pot on low & I shredded the chicken instead of cubing it because it started out frozen. Added almost 1/2 tsp. of red pepper flakes & some black pepper because that is our thing. It tastes good - I would tweak it with veggies & onions next time. Good base! Thanks!

Easy Gourmet Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
There is (was?) a wonderful Vegetarian Restaurant in Los Angeles called "Inn of the 7th Ray". DH took me there when we were dating & hated the meal. I loved it. This soup tastes like something wonderful from that Restaurant. Very Gourmet. Very Vegetarian. I give it 5 stars. The Curry adds a bite/zing that I loved. DH (Meat & Taters Guy) gave it a 4 Star rating & proceeded to put handfuls of Fishy Crackers in it so he could eat it. This would be wonderful for a Fall Meal, Cold Night. Good comfort food. I was thinking it also could be used over some kind of pasta with other Veggies. I could be a Vegetarian. DH - Not so much. It tastes very creamy - without the cream. I did not toast the pumpkin seeds (not our thing) & did not have Pumpkin Seed Oil. Delish without it.

Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
DH's question: "Was someone drinking when they came up with this?" Don't care - it is amazing! I cringed when I read about all the "Packages" of pantry treasures that were going into this.....but....this morning, while trying to throw dinner into the Crock Pot before work, it was a "What the heck!" 8 hours in the Crock Pot on Low. Added (Tweaker Alert) 1/4 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes and 3/4 cup of water & Celery & Granulated Garlic. (Not too tweaked - I hope)! This was delicious and I will suffer my rings not fitting tomorrow. Really good! Teenager's attacked it when they showed up after 9pm. Gone. 5 lbs. of chuck roast, whole bag of baby carrots, gone. They got hamburger buns out of the cabinet & were dipping the buns into the left over gravy. It is that good. Next time, will probably stick to the 1/2 cup of water instead of bumping it up to 3/4 cup water. Totally will add this to the Recipe Box! More than 5 stars!

Crescent Wrapped Brie

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2011
Tweaker Alert....add a couple of tablespoons of chopped sun dried tomatoes in oil and/or some fresh pesto and some roasted garlic on top of the brie. Seal up tight in the crescent rolls. Cook a couple of hours before you need it. The brie melts when freshly cooked and if you cut into it straight out of the oven, the brie oozes like molten lava (HOT). If you let it sit for at least 1 hour - you have warm cheese that doesn't pour out when cut! Enjoy!

Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2011
I wanted something that was different from my constant Banana Bread & my Pumpkin Bread! THIS IS IT! Made a double batch in a 13X9 Glass Pyrex. Recipe calls for 1 cup milk. (Tweaker that I am) I did 1 1/2 cups 2% milk and 1/2 cup Buttermilk that I wanted to use up. I put 1/2 of the batter in and covered it with 1/2 of the cinn/sugar topping and then added the rest of the batter on top. Added rest of the topping and swirled with a knife. A M A Z I N G ! 13X9 gone in a day from my teenagers & their friends. This is so good I am going to make it again today per their request. I think I will add 1/3 cup Lt. Brown Sugar to the topping today. New favorite! 10 stars and it makes your house smell amazing!

Foolproof Rib Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
Even better if you pack the roast the day before in Montreal Steak Seasoning - pack it completely! Drop to room temperature and cook! YUM!
