Butterfinger Chunkies

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
This was a good and VERY rich cookie with all that peanut butter and butterfinger filling in there. For a candy bar cookie, I think I prefer the Caramel Nougat Bar Peanut Butter Cookies ones from A.R. but if you're a butterfinger fan I am SURE these are for you!! They were fairly greasy, so I refrigerated the dough between batches to help it hold its shape when forming the dough balls. I rolled them thoroughly and tried to make sure the dough coated most of the candy pieces. I didn't have any issues with burning. I let them cool at least a few minutes on the sheets before moving them to the cooling rack. 11 minutes baking time was just right for me. I used fun size bars, 18 of them, and diced each one into 4-5 pieces so I had pretty good sized pieces. For me this made 24 large cookies.

Beer Cheese Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
This was pretty good! I thought the flavor came out fairly bland prior to adding s&p, but I used half reduced sodium chicken broth which probably affected the flavor somewhat. I used extra sharp cheddar and Yeungling Black & Tan for the beer. The texture is nice and I particularly like the cauliflower in this! We served with a loaf of beer bread from Tastefully Simple and it went great together. :)

Beef Loaf Deluxe

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
This was a very nice meal!! Not so pretty in the presentation department, but really really tasty! My son really enjoyed the meatloaf. It was my first time cooking zucchini and he was NOT a fan of that but personally I loved it. The salt & pepper and tomato sauce were just a nice light touch of flavor to complement the yummy potatoes and veggie mix. I would cut the onion and peppers in larger chunks next time, they sort of got lost since I diced them in smallish pieces. The roasted potatoes were my favorite part - perfectly cooked and many had a nice crust on them. I pre-diced my onions, pepper and tomato the night before and it was super easy to throw that in the roasting pan in the oven and while that was cooking for its first 20 minutes I was able to dice the zucchini and prep the meatloaf so it was quick and easy for dinner prep on a work night.

Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
This is TERRIFIC on the French Baguettes from this site. So great together! The green onion in this recipe gives it a nice bite.

Caramel Nougat Bar Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
These are so good! My son said "best cookies EVER"!! The dough itself is really nice, and complements the candy bar pieces very well. I refrigerated the dough between batches since it was fairly soft and greasy with all the pb and butter, and it helped when shaping it around the mini size bars (very important to use mini NOT fun size). I used a bag of mixed snickers (regular, dark chocolate and almond) which was fun so they'd all be a little different. Also make sure to bake only 13 minutes the first batch and check, 13 minutes was PERFECT for my oven, lightly browned and they firmed up while they cooled on the cookie sheet - I did my first batch at 15 minutes and they were crunchy when they cooled and browner than I wanted. The interesting thing I noted between the 2 batches is that 15 minutes the candy bars melt completely into the cookie, at 13 minutes some of the candy bars still held their shape so the cookies were more lumpy and have more solid candy bar pieces in them when cooled. Neither way is necessarily better, I just thought that was interesting to note. These are super yummy and fun to make and eat, will definitely use again!!

Banana Blast II

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
This was "ok" for flavor - definitely easy to throw together, but it was sort of boring in the taste department. The brown sugar did give it a little something "different" but it was that and a watered down banana taste. I would try this again but would replace the water with pineapple or orange juice for some more flavor! :)

Stef's Super Cheesy Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
This was FANTASTIC!! I made it with French Baguettes from this site; perfect together! I was a little worried when I was mixing it all together - thought it would be way too rich and too much topping too, but the flavor was really terrific, a very good mix and the broiling was the perfect touch, and it spread on thick but thins out when it bakes, yummy! :)

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
I followed the ingredients exactly as written, but I did cut off about 20 minutes from the sauce simmering because we were hungry and it was getting late!! :) I really enjoyed this dish - this was a nice mild sauce with a nice mild meatball, it was simplistic in terms of flavor, not too much and not too little. I really enjoyed it and would definitely use this again! It was great with some thin wheat spaghetti noodles and Stef's Super Cheesy Garlic Bread from this site... mmm!! :)

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
Very creamy, and even for a somewhat novice pie baker easy to make and well recieved! Very pretty to look at. :) Made with Pie Crust IV from A.R. I think replacing half of the 1/2 & 1/2 with coconut milk is a great idea for more of that coconut flavor and if I make this again I will follow that advice. The custard was very nice, very creamy.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
This was great! Really enjoyed the chewiness, and the ease of working with the dough. I replaced about half the a.p. flour with whole wheat for a heartier flavor (and I prefer a wheat crust with BBQ chicken pizza in particular.) Used with Barbecued Chicken Pizza from this site.

Strawberry Banana Shakes

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
This was SO easy to throw together in the blender, and it came out beautifully. Super thick with a great mix of strawberry & banana (we used Blue Bell Strawberry icecream). I would probably throw another half to whole banana in there next time, for a stronger banana flavor. My son gobbled his down in no time. Great sweet treat!

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
This was fantastic! I tripled it for 2 pies I was making (a double crust and a single), and had no problems with it. Very easy to work with, very soft dough. It came out so beautifully, light and flaky and very tasty! I will definitely use this again. I made it for Grandma Ople's Apple Pie and Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie. I really like using the butter flavored crisco in this too - gives it an extra rich buttery flavor!

Perfectly Moist Irish Wheaten Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
This was great! I followed the recipe as written and baked it in a loaf pan (I like being able to cut off slices and pop them in the toaster)! :) It was very easy to make, and the texture is wonderful. So dense but still very moist, and the crust is fantastic. As soon as this had mostly cooled I cut a piece put some Smart Balance on it and a couple slices of extra sharp cheddar and I was a happy camper!

Super Scrambled Eggs Number One

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
This was ok, but for our personal taste there was way too much onion and the onion was really crunchy since they weren't sauteed first. I like the idea of adding onion for some different flavor, but if I made this again I would definitely sautee them before adding the rest of the ingredients to the pan. I also agree that the cheese flavor melds in and gets lost, and would suggest either adding it all closer to the end or reserving half to sprinkle on top to melt when the eggs are done cooking. We used half real eggs and half egg-stirs to make it a little healthier. For me this was just 'ok' because of how much the onion just overpowered everything else, and I even added less than called for.

Mom's Warm Milk

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
My son has been having a hard time with sleeping and his ped recommended warm milk before bed, we've been adding a little sugar free chocolate and strawberry syrup to it, but I wanted to try this one out to see what he'd think. It was a little too sweet for him and I think the nutmeg was a little "weird" for him. I used a little less nutmeg than called for and used Splenda instead of sugar and I thought it was a very nice bedtime drink, but think it didn't need as much sweetener and would stick with about 1/8 tsp of nutmeg so its not overpowering.

Barbecued Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
This is a great and simple BBQ Chicken pizza, I don't think it would be nearly as tasty without a home made pizza crust (I used Jay's Signature Pizza Crust). I diced my red and green bell pepper instead of julienne slicing (my son isn't a fan, and if they're in smaller pieces he doesn't seem to notice them much). We used Kraft Honey BBQ sauce and followed the directions and ingredents. It was very tasty and easy! I boiled and shredded my chicken and diced the veggies and sauteed them while my pizza dough was rising and it worked out well.

Easy Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2009
I made the recipe as written and thought it was "ok". Much too bland for my taste. I love easy dishes like this for a change of pace from tacos/fajitas/burritos though and think it could definitely be changed up to be a great recipe with some personalization. Next time I would use nacho cheese doritos for the chip layer, add another layer of cheese over the meat & bean layer and definitely more seasonings (a taco packet or similar) and finely diced onion to the meat while its cooking.

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2009
I cannot WAIT for our next family get together so I can bake and bring this pie. It is BEAUTIFUL to look at with the gorgeous rich brown color from the sauce on the pastry. I followed the recipe exactly as written and am thrilled with the results. I used Pie Crust IV (which was a wonderful pie crust recipe) and was really, really happy with the results. The taste is absolutely terrific, creamy sauce, and perfectly flavored tender apples. Lovely! :)

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
Oh my gosh!! After reading some of the reviews and all the changes/additions, etc. I wondered what this would actually taste like all by itself. I found out. It's GOOD stuff. Pure and simple comfort food! I made this just as written, but I halved it and I put it on low heat for 11 hours while I was at work (I prepared it the night before and put it in the fridge, when I got up I plugged in the crockpot just before I left the house and set it on low). When I got home, I rolled out the biscuits so they were nice and thin and used a pizza cutter to cut each one into 5-6 strips and threw them into the pot; I stirred it well to make sure they all were covered in liquid and would cook completely. I turned the heat up to high and set a timer for 60 minutes. I checked at 45 and they were cooked through and beautifully soft and doughy on the outside still. I went ahead and added a drained can of mixed peas & carrots after turning the heat off, and mixed it a couple times to break up the chicken chunks and warm the veggies then served. YUMMY. This is awesome just as its written, it is a lot of dumplings for the amount of chicken/liquid - but I liked it that way. :) Thanks for a GREAT and easy work night recipe!!

Bacon 'N' Egg Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
My son and I love quick egg sandwiches for weekend breakfasts! Great with homemade biscuits (AR's J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits are great)! I usually add s&p to my scrambled eggs when cooking, and usually some water or milk to them as well. We use FF american cheese. Quick, easy and yummy - great breakfast!
