Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2014
recipe was so simple and easy from start to finish. My kids really enjoyed this very much. I added about 1/2 cup of walnuts to the batter and then when baked I drizzled a little quick glaze on top with a walnut half. They looked absolutely beautiful and were nice, moist and light, not dense. Will make again. TY

Peachy Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2014
LOOOOOOVED!!! this. My grocery store didn't have peach pie filling, so I took the juice from 2 24oz cans of sliced peaches and thickened up the juice with cornstarch and cooked until really thick. (Don't ask exact measurement, because I winged this part in desperation, LOL) However, followed the rest of the salad with an additional 1/2 cup more of grapes and added 1 cup of fresh strawberries...oh holy cow was it fantastic. Better then any canned fruit cocktail and now going to be on many feasts and family gatherings from now on!!! TY so much suesee ;-) it's the bomb!

Cindy's Awesome Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2014
Easy recipe tasted really good, it was well liked. However, I'm going to leave off the potato skins the next time as, it was something I found that I preferred after making the recipe. And I'm more of a person that likes a more intense clam/seafood flavor, so I'll be using seafood stock or more clam juice in place of the water addition in step 2. However, will be on rotation for the family as they liked it very much.

Creamy White Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2014
Recipe was totally enjoyable and tasty. Simple to assemble and I always keep all these ingredients on hand, made nice for a partly dreary day in Southern Oregon. I will have to say, it was very runny for a chili. I will make again but I think I'll leave the heavy whipping cream as I feel was the reason the chili was runny. My family really loved the recipe very much.

Crab Rangoon I

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2014
really easy filling, good recipe and was a hit with the family that loves seafood. However, my only gripe is, because I'm so thorough. Is that 1 tsp didn't look like it was enough to fill with, so I used 1 1/2 tsp (or 1/2 TBSP...equals the same conversion) However, in doing that I used just over 2 14oz packages of wonton wrappers...90 wontons to be exact. The filling makes a lot. Mid-way through I was looking at the amount I had so far and then looking at how much filling was in the bowl and was thankful that I purchased 3 packages of wonton wrappers. And trust me when I say, I used a measuring spoon to measure out the filling, I seriously did. I'll make these again because they were totally good but I'll have to freeze more then half the batch.

Mama's Lasagna Scramble

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2014
This recipe sounded soo good, still does. However, 2 ingredients over powered this dish to where it should have been 5 star rating. I questioned myself first and then should have listened and gone with my instinct, but there is way to much black pepper and dried thyme in the recipe. And it's all we could taste above everything else. They both were totally overwhelming. The thyme sat on the tongue above the flavors while the black pepper did a party in the back of the throat and wasn't fun. My youngest had the most difficulties with this issue and this momma felt horribly bad. I'd ONLY try this again with taking my instinct like I should have done and reduce the black pepper to 1/4 to 1/2 tsp verses 1 1/2tsp total as well as the same with the thyme. I did top the recipe with 1/2cup shredded cheese mixed with 1/4 cup of shredded parm and a sprinkling of home grown dried basil before placing in the oven.

Chop Suey Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2014
While this recipe had a great flavor, I'm on the fence with this. Batter was easy and simple and while it had a great flavor, from a piece I could taste. I couldn't believe how the batter soaked up the non stick spray I used to keep the cake from sticking to the pan as it cooked, totally went out the window and glued to the pan like I didn't use anything. I couldn't pry this out of the pan. No subtle way or approach worked to get a nice piece out of the pan. I looked like Lucille Ball from I Love Lucy involved in a comedy skit. By the time I tried, the cake was all over me and the countertop and it looked like a bomb exploded in my kitchen. Needless to say, a 2nd attempt was made and same thing happened, so I gave up after I had a few chuckles from my kids at my mess. There won't be a 3rd attempt but again what I could taste was nice.

Biscotti Dessert Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2014
Followed to a T. The batter was nice and formed into logs quite easily, however, not that flavorful for a biscotti cookie, rather bland and didn't have that sweetness either. Sorry I won't be making again.

Bishop's Bread II

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2014
Talk about a chunky monkey colossal of a bread. It's thick, dense, sturdy and full. We liked the bread but felt I could have decreased the amount of chocolate chips by 1/2 that it calls for. Loved the fact of mixing the milk, baking soda, vanilla and juice from the maraschino cherries together....what a neat science trick in the kitchen to show my youngest when it grew and foamed up. She thought that was pretty amazing. I will make again but would totally decrease the chocolate chips. Not that I don't love chocolate but the amount with all the other additions was so chunky that in spots where the chips settled, the bread fell apart and hands were covered in chocolate. Tastes great with a pat of butter smeared on to the slices when served. TY Another note, I used 3 smaller loaf pans. But will note, don't use large loaf pans...the batter wont' bake all the way through and will burn on the outside before it gets completely done. Smaller loaf pans and or muffin tins are better.

Chocolate Kahlua® Brownies With Coffee

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2014
This recipe isn't a brownie. It's not even a brownie cake. It's a cake. I followed the recipe to a T. Do not understand why the butter had to be partially frozen at all because when the ingredients are mixed together thoroughly, the butter was a lumpy and still almost solid in the mixture. It didn't even incorporate fully with the rest of the ingredients. As simple as the recipe is. I didn't sub any ingredients nor make any changes and being that I love Kahlua baked into recipes because of it's lingering flavor and the overall richness it adds, there was way to much in this recipe for 1/4 of a cup to be utilized. It was pungent and overwhelming nor could you even taste even the coffee flavor either. There was not enough cocoa powder to even taste it's presence as well, let alone be a chocolate or a blonde style brownie. I am sorry, truly and utterly sorry for even having to review and rate it a one star. My apologies to the submitter.

Crisp Pickled Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2014
I have used this recipe quite a few times with fresh green beans. My family loves how they turn out. I leave the garlic in the recipe to marinate with the pickling mixture and find that pickled garlic is a favorite of mine. This recipe is simple and nice and my kids love it when I use the pickling mixture with pickling cucumbers. Thank you, this is a delightful and easy recipe that I will experiment with, with other veggies ;-)

New England Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2014
really easy to put together, a little too much Old Bay for my liking but however, my oldest and my husband ate all but the one I hade. I used a large ice cream size scooper and it made a total of 7 1/2, I ate the half during the morning when I was forming them as a test run. ;-) I could see using less Old Bay and some fresh dill, green onions and pimentos in it the next time. But I can see making these again. Thanks.

Porcupine Meatballs in Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2014
The end result in my house as it was delish. I found that you need to use good judgment on the size of the onion. Use too much chopped onion results in a not so formed or held together meatball. That's just a heads up with some advice. If you have to much, just throw it in the tomato sauce and let it cook with it. However, recipe simple, easy and fast to whip together. I was worried about no spice or proper seasoning in the beginning but when it was all said and done, reminded me of the filling to cabbage rolls without the cabbage. I served over cheesy garlic mashed potatoes and called it a day. Will make again as my family said it was worthy as a repeat offender. TY

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2014
While this recipe was the 2nd time to be a repeat offender in my house. I waited to see results. Both times this recipe was made, I liked, but I didn't like the over abundance of the vanilla. 2 teaspoons is way to much, you can taste it above the chocolate flavor and just under the peanut butter chips. However, the 1st time they were made as a cookie and were thick and fluffy and were more like a cakey cookie. I suggested that we try on the next go around to place in a mini cupcake/muffin pan and see what they do. And to my thinking, they did exactly as predicted...they were more a muffin style recipe verses a cookie. This recipe was good like I said but should be renamed as a muffin recipe, not a cookie recipe. And as a muffin recipe, they were perfect little morsels.

Baked Ham and Cheese Party Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2014
My self and my moonkid 1st had this recipe at the PNW Round-Up at Candice's. They were so good. However, less messy then the recipe calls for because Candice was gracious as to put the onion poppy seed mixture inside the sandwiches for better serving to us. They were perfect. So I had been meaning to make them at home for my family since. I followed as close to the recipe as possible but utilized a large fresh bakery French bread and made one long sub for my family. Oh how that was perfect. The presentation was absolutely amazing and the looks on my family's faces was priceless. Turned out soo well and I did top the onion poppy seed mixture on the outside as suggested. The mixture was soo flavorful. I did prepare another batch of the mixture and place in the frig for another batch of these yummy sandwiches for the freezer, but placed the mixture for these, inside the sandwiches for quick toss on a baking sheet and in the oven on the go for my kids. Perfect all the way around. The recipe is so forgiving if you want a Rye bread or even a soft pumpernickel and roast beef style sandwich. Will totally be a repeat offender in my household...TY!

Chocolate Wontons

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2014
My GOSH! YUM. sooo delicious. An easy and simple recipe. I found it easier after about the 4th wonton, to chop the remaining strawberries and toss over the chocolate chips. What a versatile recipe for sure. Reese's Butter Chips and chopped strawberries is the BOMB!! Will totally make again and again. Thank you sooo much!

Awesome Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2014
my sweet little moonkid wanted eggrolls and this was the recipe she picked. I helped along the way to show her how easy it was to put things together from start to finish. The recipe is very versatile. We normally don't carry can shrimp on hand (because of personal preferences) so used ground chicken and made sure IT was well seasoned and cooked prior to mixing all the ingredients together and we used 2 bags of cabbage/carrot mix to equal the amount of cabbage, carrot and celery written in this recipe. From start to finish rather easy. The wetness to the recipe was very good. As you do NOT want overly wet filling in an eggroll recipe, will make your wrappers extremely weak and will cause the wrappers tear and burst in the frying process. As someone that has made lumpia and eggrolls most of my life, this is a simple recipe for those beginners wanting to make them on their own.

Caroline's Firecrackers

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2014
Who says that Flamin' Hot Cheetos(R) don't pair well with white chocolate?! Certainly not me. Because man are these good. And what a pretty color of pink that the Cheetos(R) give the almond bark. Addictively sweet and spicy, the sweetness hits 1st and then POW! You get nailed with an explosive ending. Will make again because my kiddos totally like them. These are simple, quick and down right a crazy combination that will be a "repeat offender" in my house! TY
