Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
This was the first pot pie I've ever made and was a GREAT way to use up leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. I only had a 9" pie pan and used only one medium sized potato. I also didn't have celery but added some frozen peas instead. With these changes, it turned out PERFECT. I will definitely be using this recipe after Thanksgiving again.

Sausage Crescent Rolls

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
I made a mistake and bought plain ground turkey instead of turkey sausage, so I added some garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper and sage when browning the turkey. I also finely diced one medium onion and sauteed it along with the turkey. After adding the onion (which was an excellent addition) and the cream cheese, I found that the mixture was a bit too thick so I just poured in about 1/8 or 1/4 cup milk which made it perfect. It was easier for me to lay out half the crescent dough onto the cookie sheet, put the meat mixture in the middle of it in the shape of a log, and then place the other unrolled half of the dough on top of it and close all the seams. I didn't have poppy seeds but these turned out golden and delicious! My husband liked them too. Even though they were great with plain ground turkey, next time I will definitely try turkey sausage. I think it will be even better.

Louisiana Sweet Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
I overdosed on these they were so good. Except I already had sweet potato puree on hand so I didn't have to boil the potatoes. I cut the amount of nutmeg in half and added 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Also, I had to put the stove heat at 4 (medium low) at medium high they would have burnt to a crisp. Ate the pancakes with butter and powdered sugar on top - YUM!

Chicken Fiesta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
This was an excellent salad! However, for my preferences the quantities in this recipe were way off. I used 3 chicken breast halves, a little less than 15 oz can beans (maybe 3/4 the can) I didn't use corn since I didn't have it and don't like canned corn (but I didn't miss it at all) and I used almost 1 cup salsa. I threw the chopped onion in along with the beans and salsa and taco seasoning. Then I did everything else according to recipe, and topped it with shredded monterrey jack and a little ranch dressing.

Fresh Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
Awesome recipe, tastes like my mothers because I couldn't find her recipe. I omitted the butter though because I felt it uneccessary and I didn't even miss it. Otherwise, everything else was spot on!

Barbeque Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
I was impressed by this recipe - delicious! Taste was on point, but only thing I did different was double the sauce (for 8 chicken thighs) and omit the water. I did, however, add about 1/8 cup water mixed with cornstarch to the sauce to thicken it. I poured about half the sauce over the chicken to begin with, and during the last 15 minutes of baking, (when the cover is off), I basted the chicken with the rest of the sauce. This gave it the PERFECT touch and was a crucial step to having great BBQ chicken. I will definitely make this again!

Garlic-Ginger Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2012
This is how I fitted the recipe to our liking. I used 15 unseparated wings, doused them with cayenne pepper along with the salt, black pepper, oil and hot sauce. Then I added a ton of garlic powder to the flour when shaking the wings. I generously sprayed the aluminum foil-lined baking sheet with nonstick spray and cooked them for 22 minutes. Then I turned them over and cooked another 22 minutes. I then dipped each wing in the sauce and returned it to the baking sheet and the oven for another 5 minutes. Otherwise these would be overcooked and dry if cooked for an hour. For the sauce, I added another clove of garlic and used dried ginger. I decreased the vinegar to 1/3 cup and used regular white vinegar. These changes made the wings spectacular for me and my husband.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2008
This is the only dessert recipe I've come across that I actually had to do nothing to make it taste better. My husband and guests and I LOVED it. The only thing I changed (because I didn't have regular oats on hand) was I substituted in two of those individual serving caramel apple flavored oatmeal packets. I don't know if it made much of a difference, but this turned out superb. (and it was my first time making an apple crisp recipe ever.)

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
I didn't change anything except for omitting the white pepper (I never use that) and increasing the garlic powder to 1 tsp. I wrapped tightly in cling wrap and marinated overnight. WOW these were really good! Perfect for company. Oh yes - and basting with the juices halfway through cooking and at the end is a must.

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
Outstanding recipe. I used some advice from previous reviewers and marinated the chicken in some worcteshire and lime juice - it turned out great and my husband loved it too. Only problem was I ran out of chicken and people wanted more!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I cut down the sugar to 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup white sugar. I used all whole wheat flour instead of white and put in a few sliced almonds. Everybody loved them.

Extreme Banana Nut Bread 'EBNB'

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
this is the only banana bread recipe I will use from now on! I used half white flour and half whole wheat flour. I added another teaspoon of baking powder, used butter flavored shortening instead of butter, and added half a teaspoon of vanilla. I also sprinkled sliced almonds on top while baking. These loaves came out absolutely perfect.

Egyptian Koshari

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2009
This was delicious after the alterations I made. Can't give any real quantities because I just eyeballed it, but I added lots of cumin, salt, pepper and cilantro to the onions and garlic while they were sauteeing. I also added a small can of tomato paste. Blended that all up to make the sauce smooth and I couldn't stop myself from second and third helpings.

Cranberry Salad II

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
I love this recipe but next time I will definitely use half the water. It was too runny for my taste. But the flavor was excellent!

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
I also bought a 21 lb bird and found the advice of BMDSINGLE very helpful as far as the cooking time. I started out roasting it for an hour under 375 degrees, then cut back the temp to 350 and roasted for another 5 hours until internal temp reached 165. Since I don't make homemade gravy I wouldn't use nearly as much chicken broth, and I also sprinkled salt and pepper in addition to the other seasonings. I lightly covered the turkey in foil for the whole time up until the last 40 minutes when I removed it to let it brown. This turkey was my first ever and it was a huge success!! Thank you so much for the recipe!!

Almond-Tipped Shortbread Fingers

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
I only give this recipe five stars because they would be perfect with white sugar instead of brown. I'm not sure if that was just a mistake in the recipe or what...but they will only be white if you use white granulated sugar.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
Very, very yummy with these changes: Double sauce. (even with small amount of skinless chicken pieces, i.e. drumsticks or thighs) Here's my own take on the sauce: 2 T cornstarch, 2 T water, little less than 1/2 cup white sugar, little less than 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup regular vinegar, 1 full tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp ground ginger, 1/2 tsp black pepper. Pour half the sauce on the chicken and cover and bake half an hour. Uncover, pour rest of sauce on chicken, bake 15 min, then baste chicken with sauce in bottom of pan and bake 15 more minutes. Comes out PERFECT this way! Can use chicken breasts and bake at 400 for half an hour.

Fruity Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
whoa, people were right when they said this tastes awesome after spending 24 hours in the fridge!! I used purple raisins because I didn't have any golden ones. Also left out the celery and nuts because I didn't have them. I used finely diced vidalia onion instead of green onions and this was freakin delicious! All the flavors of the fruit, chicken, curry and onion go so well together.
