Busy Night Turkey Taco Soup with Avocado Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2007
This soup is wonderful. I used two packages of the pre-cooked chunk chicken (southwestern flavor) and added some crushed tortilla chips. EVERYONE loved this, including my Mom who is a very good cook! Thanks for the recipe!

Cheesecake Supreme

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2007
I finally found the b-e-s-t cheesecake recipe!! Thank you Muffy! I make sure to let cream cheese, eggs, egg yolks and whipping cream come to room temperature before beginning. I also added 2 t. vanilla. I made this for my husband for his birthday. He loved it - and, he is quite picky about his cheesecake.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2007
This recipe is really good with mashed potatoes. I double the soup, milk and wine to make more gravy.

Fortune Cookies I

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2007
These cookies taste wonderful! I added 2T water to the mix and they made perfect thin circles. I followed the high altitude suggestion and baked at 375 for 7 minutes. I followed another reviewer's suggestion and removed with a well sprayed spatula. I did not turn the cookies over before folding the paper in and found that this helped make them look more authentic; this also seemed to make the cookies more crunchy. They are awesome and my kids keep asking for more! Thanks for the recipe.

Chicken Alfredo Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2007
I thought that this pizza was good. I did have to bake it for almost double the time indicated. The crust came out nice, even at high altitude. I have made this twice, and everyone liked it both times. Next time, I'll add red onions, some roasted red peppers and some quartered artichoke hearts for a little more excitement.

Bread Machine Bagels

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2007
These bagels are just as good as Panera or Einstein. I make 8 and let them rise more like 20 minutes. My first topping choice was a combo of onion flakes, coarse salt, sesame seeds and poppy seeds. We added 2t of cinnamon to our second batch and topped with cinnamon sugar. We're going to try mocha chocolate chip next. I may never have a reason to go to the bagel shop again! Thanks for publishing this one!

Bavarian Mints

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2007
These came out really good! I dipped half in dark chocolate and half in milk chocolate. Next time I'll cut one row, then dip in chocolate, then cut some more, and dip, etc. I cut them all at once. The last mints that I dipped in chocolate dried just a bit on the sides (Denver is dry...) I recommend pure belgian chocolate for dipping, making the finished product look very smooth and professional. I put each one in it's own little mini paper cup, just like the candy factory does. The family LOVED them!!! I was asked, "You made these?!?!!!?" more than once. Thanks for the recipe! :-)

Apple Cartwheels

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2007
I filled cored apples as directed. My girls thought this was really fun, but the juice from the apples made the peanut butter want to fall out. So, the second time, I just mixed the peanut butter, honey and mini-chocolate chips in a small bowl and let them dip wedges in it. I highly recommend that instead, minus the raisins.

Scalloped Potatoes II

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2007
These were pretty good, but they didn't get the "Wow!" that I was hoping for. I did add salt, pepper, garlic powder and seasoning salt in between layers. I mixed half of the milk with the flour and stirred halfway through, as others recommended. The consistency was great. Next time, I think I'll add more spices and/or some cheese to achieve a more flavorful result.

Amazing Banana Sorbet

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2007
My family won't eat bananas once they are two hours past ripe! So, I've been looking for recipes that call for ripe bananas. This tasted pretty good, but I wouldn't call it sorbet. It did not have the lightness that comes with sorbet. It was more like frozen sweetened mashed bananas. I did cut back to 3/4 cup sugar based upon others' recommendations. So, it didn't taste too sweet. But, we all concluded that we'd rather just eat a banana, or even a frozen banana. Perhaps it would be more sorbet like if you let chunks of banana flavor the syrup, then strain out half of the banana before mixing and freezing? Sorry. I really wanted to like this one.

Amber's Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
Before you try this recipe, smell the Chinese Five Spice. It has a prominent effect on the flavor of this dish. Neither my husband nor I liked this, unfortunately. We both love the sweet Sesame Chicken that you get in Chinese restaurants. This was not in the same league. Sorry.

Arizona Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
This dish was wonderful! It tasted just like the "Arroz con Pollo" dish that we used to get an old favorite Mexican restaurant, "La Fiesta". I made a few minor changes: I used 4 whole chicken breasts, pounded flat and cut in thirds. Once I browned the chicken, I did not add any more oil to my frying pan. So, only 2T, not 1/4 cup. The onions were just fine without additional oil. I added a half a red pepper, sliced, with the onions, and 4 crushed cloves of fresh garlic (I later omitted the 2t garlic powder). I used chicken broth instead of water. When I returned the chicken to the pan, I added 1/2 cup of white wine and some saffron threads and simmered it covered, not uncovered. This kept all the wonderful juices from evaporating. I omitted the mushrooms as well since I'm not a big fan. I served this over spanish rice. In a pinch, I cook two boxes of Rice-a-Roni - one chicken flavored and one mexican style. These blended together make a nice subtle spanish rice that blended perfectly with this dish. Thanks so much for this recipe! I'll make it again and again.

Chinese Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
This pork was wonderful. I increased the brown sugar and garlic and eliminated the five-spice. I let the pork marinade in a freezer bag for two days as another reviewer suggested. I baked it and allowed it to cool. Then I used it in the "Authentic Chinese Egg Rolls" recipe also available through this web site. The pork was wonderful! My kids kept eating it while I was slicing it for the egg rolls. Thanks for the recipe!

Authentic Chinese Egg Rolls (from a Chinese person)

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
Awesome, awesome, awesome!! I used the "Chinese Pork Tenderloin" recipe also available on this website for the Chinese barbequed pork. I used a whole carrot and eliminated the mushrooms (not a big fan). I will never try another egg roll recipe. These were great! Thank you for the recipe!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2007
This is just as good as the packaged taco mix and much more cost effective. I used only 1 teaspoon cumin, and used a heaping tablespoon of chili powder. I used all of the mix for one package of meat (about 1 1/4 lbs.) Thanks for the recipe!!

Zesty Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2007
These were just okay. I was looking for the more standard sloppy joe flavor that has a bit of sweetness. These were a bit flat for my taste.

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2007
These were very good. The classic sloppy joe taste. I just used a bit of the cloves. Next time I'll double the recipe. It went fast! Thanks for the recipe. No more manwiches for us! :-)
