Kelsandra's Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2012
These are good, but it's missing salt. I noticed these as I was making them and added a tiny bit but the end result needed more. The only other change I made was using heavy cream instead of evaporated milk, because I didn't have any. These are definitely good and a fun version to use for the fall!

Spaghetti Pie III

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
Yummy! I ate a whole plateful!! Only minor changes based on reviews and what my guys like. I added smoked sausage with the beef and 2 cans of sauce. I added a little grated parmesan to the sour cream/cream cheese mixture and mixed directly with noodles. I also layered mine, putting half the pasta on the bottom, then half the sauce, a little cheddar, then the other half of the pasta, sauce, then the remaining cheddar (I used less cheddar cause it was extra sharp- great for dieters who still want cheese). Baked according to directions and it was great! Will definitely make again because plain spaghetti gets so boring!

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
Very good! I followed other reviewers and baked mine. Next time I will probably double to sauce recipe cause I'm a dipper.

Whole Wheat, Oatmeal, and Banana Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2012
Yummy! Adjusted a thing or 2 to suit my weight loss needs. I used only whole wheat flour and added a dash of cinnamon. After everything was mixed, the batter seemed really thick, so I added a bit (less than 1/8 C) more milk. Taste tested one topped with a thin spread of mixed berry cream cheese and it was wonderful. Will be a great grab and go healthy breakfast.

Piggies (Sugar and Cinnamon Pie Dough Cookies)

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2012
Love them, especially right out of the oven. They are quick and easy to fix even late at night when you're craving something sweet. I use unsalted butter instead of shortening and add 1/2 teaspoon of sugar to the dough. I use my Ninja to combine the flour and butter, works like a charm and is super quick and easy.

Nutty Quick Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2012
Yummy! This is a great bread and reminds me a lot of bran muffins. I did as others suggested and used half white and half brown sugar and added a bit of cinnamon.

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
Great pie crusts! I doubled the recipe for a chicken pot pie and used the tip about using a food processor to cut in butter (which I used because I didn't have shortening). Then poured crumbs into a bowl to add ice water. This worked great!

Crispy and Creamy Doughnuts

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
Great recipe! I used unsalted butter instead of shortening because I didn't have any and needed 6 cups of flour before the dough pulled away from the sides. The dough is very fragile and will deflate at the slightest touch but still tastes great!

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: May 15, 2012
Yummy! Just made this and it is now chilling in the fridge but I HAD to sneak a taste. So good, I can't wait to taste it tomorrow once all the flavors mingle. The only thing I did different was adding lime and lemon zest, like other reviewers, and cutting the salt in half (I have a hard time putting a full tablespoon in anything on the first go). Thanks for the recipe!

Chicken Enchilada Casserole II

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2012
Just made this for supper and it got rave reviews! I had to make a few substitutions based on what I had but still turned out great and slightly healthier. I used plain greek yogurt instead of sour cream and black beans instead of chili beans. (By the way, the cream mixture would make a great chip dip!) I also seasoned the chicken breasts with taco seasoning while they were cooking. All my guys in the house went back for seconds.

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
Yummy! Made without a bread machine but proofing the yeast with water and brown sugar for 20 minutes, then added the rest of the ingredients. I used my dough hooks on my hand mixer to blend ingredients and knead. I also used half white wheat flour and half AP flour for extra grains! Already have many requests for more!

Super moist and chewy oatmeal cookie

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2012
These are great! I did make a few modifications based on a wonderfully chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe I have. I melted no salt butter and allowed it to brown slightly to enhance the nutty flavor. I decreased the overall amount of sugar to 1 3/4 cup and used 1 1/4 cup of light brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar, using more brown sugar than white also increases chewiness. I whisked the butter and sugars together until well combined and added the eggs and vanilla. I whisked for 30 seconds and allowed to rest for 3 minutes, repeating this 2 more times, this allows the sugars to fully dissolve. I also added a pinch of ground cloves and nutmeg to dry ingredients. Adhered to the directions from this point on and got rave reviews from my taste testers. They are so addictive. WOW! I've made these cookies probably about 4 times in the last week, tweaking each time a bit, and they keep getting better. I definitely recommend melting and slightly brown the butter, reducing the sugar to 1 1/3 cup total (1/2 cup white sugar and the rest brown), reducing the flour to 1 3/4 cup (I used 3/4 of whole wheat flour on my last batch and they were awesome and a little healthier). I use a heavy teaspoon of cinnamon, plus ginger, nutmeg, and ground cloves, 1/2 t each. SO SO GOOD!

Peachy Moist Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
These are really good! Great alternative to blueberry. Followed the recipe except for a few changes, replaced 1/2 c of AP flour with 1/2 c whole wheat, added 1/2 t of salt to dry ingredients (was afraid it would be too bland without) and used sour cream instead of yogurt cause I didn't have any. Will definitely be making these again!

Crusty French Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2012
Yummy and oh so easy!!! Followed the directions except I didn't have cornmeal but it didn't matter. I also cheated with the kneading and let my dough hooks do the work but it still turned out fantastic. I'm going to be teaching my ESE students this recipe tomorrow and many teachers have requested a loaf.

Flat Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
Different strokes for different folks! I LOVE these dumplings! I like my dumplings thick and heavy, I just don't care for dumplings that are like bread floating in broth. For my hungry guys (2 teenage boys & 1 husband), I doubled this recipe, used milk instead of chicken broth (they were going to be cooked in chicken broth), used only 1 egg, 1/2 cup more flour, less parsley, and no onions. I used the dough hook to mix the dry and wet ingredients, with the extra flour it wasn't sticky at all. I built up some muscles kneading and rolling out but it was totally worth it- ended up with my perfect dumpling AND burned a few calories. I made sure to cut them small and added a few more minutes of cook time. YUMMY!
