Fluffy Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
We made some biscuits from "Joy of cooking" and they were awful and we threw them away. we tried these and we followed this recipe to the T. They turned out VERY fluffy and yummy. I would agree that the outside had a little bit of a flour taste from when you rolled it on the floured counter, but what do you expect, you just rolled it on a floured counter! These were VERY fluffy, and were great. we will probably use this recipe again. At 3/4" thickness it only made 7 1/2 biscuits.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
as far as taste goes, AWESOME! This really has a great taste and I am certain I will be making this again and again. My only issue is the brown sugar/ketchup mixture on the bottom of the pan hardens in some places and becomes chewy and hard to eat or even get off your spoon/fork. I used ground beef b/c it was all I had and I knew it would create more grease so I added extra bread crumbs and it turned out great. VERY EASY To make as well!

Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: May 27, 2008
We kept back 3 cups of water and the soup is a little runny for our taste, so we just thickened it up with some flour and it was pretty darn good. It will be a repeat in our house for sure! Other than thickening it was good JUST AS IT WAS!

Grilled Venison Backstrap

Reviewed: May 2, 2008
WOW, this does taste just like stake. no game taste at all. We will be using this recipe again and again. I did it JUST as it said. Unfortunately some of our meat had a lot of tendons on it and of course that was very chewy, but that had more to do with how we cut the meat off the deer. The meat was AWESOME though!

Easy Chicken Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
This was a Very easy and good recipe. we added mushrooms but you don't have to. We did add some shredded cheddar cheese inside the pasta mixture and I feel like it MADE this taste just like a tetrazzini. We also added extra cheese on top and then some bread crumbs on the very top. It was fabulous! We will be keeping this recipe.

Simply Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2007
Great recipe. There is NO WAY there was enough ricotta cheese mixture to make that dish. I added one more 15 ounce can of ricotta and am VERY happy I did. When setting the pasta in there it looks like there isn't enough because of the gaps, but three pieces IS ENOUGH! I Promise. The Pasta expands A LOT! This recipe makes thin layers, and my family likes thick layers so we weren't able to make the required amount of layers, but this REALLY turned out great. If you double the ricotta cheese put a cookie sheet under the pan in the oven b/c the sauce overflowed just a little.

Bacon Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
I used rosemarry instead of thyme since I didn't have any on hand and I really liked the flavor. I also added 1/4 onion, 2 cloves of garlic and a 1/4 cup of rosemarry inside the chicken with the carrots. super easy. remember if you have more than a 4lb chicken to cook it 18 to 25 minutes per pound! It must reach an internal temp of 180. I went to 185 and it was still very moist. this meal was GREAT and the bacon was awesome. However, Leaving the bacon on the top the whole time did not allow the skin to brown. we will be making this again for sure.

Tortilla Pinwheels

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2007
It was GREAT! I saw that several reviewers were trying to boost the taste. I made the first tortilla by the recipe, and agreed that it needed some extra taste. I realized if I spread the olives across the WHOLE tortilla and not just down the middle it helped A LOT! I also used more olives than the recipe called for. Using about 1/2 a cup or slightly more was PERFECT! My last name is olive, but that doesn't mean I LOVE olives! If you find the original recipe lacking a little, just make one tortilla this way, and see what you think. it is a great recipe though!
