Melt-In-Your-Mouth Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
I've never been much of a meat loaf fan, so when someone in the family requests it, I always try a different recipe, looking for that perfect one I'll actually enjoy myself. I think I've finally found it. I had Italian-seasoned bread crumbs, so I left out the sage, added a little fresh ground pepper, but otherwise stuck to the recipe. It was nice and moist and flavorful, but simple and classic. I had some organic beef fresh ground at the little corner market, and I know that made it even better, too.

Chicken with Pineapple Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
We really enjoyed this! I'm always looking for easy, healthy, kid-friendly recipes for busy weeknights, and this fit the bill on all fronts. I ended up using a little larger pan, because the 9" square was kind of a tight squeeze, and I wanted all the chicken to have contact with the sauce as it baked. Also, I was pretty lazy about basting, and it was still moist and lovely. Very good served over rice!

Garlic Chicken Fried Brown Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2010
We really enjoyed this quick dish! This is a great way to reimagine leftovers. I doubled the recipe, added 1 tablespoon of sesame oil and some finely chopped leftover carrots. My green onions were extremely strong, so I only used 1/2 the amount called for and added a little chopped sweet onion that was also leftover from another recipe. I like that this uses brown rice, and we'll definitely be making this again.

Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
Really nice salsa/relish to complement our grilled fish. I ate the rest with my favorite blue corn tortilla chips. The only change I made was to add a tiny bit of sea salt, which helps balance and round out the flavors.

Chicken Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
This was excellent! I left out the shallots, because the onion was so strong, I was afraid to add anything more along that line, and that turned out to be a good decision. I used about 3 tablespoons of dehydrated potato flakes to thicken the chowder a little (which I keep on hand for this very purpose), because I thought it was a bit too thin. I threw in a couple of whole garlic cloves with the chicken, and added a tiny bit of celery salt to the soup at the end. Easy, tasty comfort food!

Dill Veggie Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
Made this without the cucumber (just didn't sound good) and about 1/2-3/4 the dressing called for (personal preference on most salads), and it was very good. Of course, I love dill, so it was to be expected! I also added a little extra pasta to use up the rest of a box. My daughter asked for the leftovers to pack in her school lunch box today, so I'm sure we'll be making this again and again.

Cranberry Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
I keep cranberries in the freezer nearly all year. I thought I'd do a practice run for the holidays with this recipe, and I loved it. I will definitely be making this again then. Moist and sweet/tart, it is a lovely winter dessert. The brown sugar sauce finishes it perfectly. It did take less than 40 minutes to bake, but that could just be my oven. BTW, Janet is right, this is a bread pudding type-dessert, not a creamy pudding.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
Simple, traditional and lovely! Made two large loaves this afternoon, and it's almost all gone already. This is the kind of bread where you skip making the sandwiches you intended to use it for, slice it warm, slather with butter and eat it right up.

Butter Rich Spritz Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
Quick cookies to satisfy a sweet tooth! The dough was a bit thick for the cookie press, so I thinned it with a little milk. They had a nice delicate flavor, perfect with a cup of tea, but they were a tad on the dry side. Still a good cookie, though!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2010
I almost never make sloppy joes because I hate the pre-made sauce you buy in the store. I've never tried to make my own, but I bought some organic beef on sale, and the kids wanted sloppy joes. Not being a ketchup fan, I almost passed over this recipe, but I'm so glad I didn't. This is much better than pre-made, and the kids really liked it. Super easy, too, for a busy weeknight.

Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
I made a big batch of this to freeze for school lunches and the kids loved it! I didn't realize I was out of marjoram, so I just used Italian seasoning in place of that and the thyme. I also used a dried country-style noodle, and they were excellent in this. We'll definitely make this again.

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
Added some mini marshmallows to make "rocky road" blondies for the kids. The only thing I questioned was why there was baking powder and soda if there was no acid to activate the soda. So I subbed buttermilk for the milk. Great after school treat.

Sweet Vanilla Cupcakes

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
Excellent! My daughter needed cupcakes for school and asked me to make these. All the comments made before me are dead on. Simply lovely! I'm sure I'll be making these many times. Thanks for sharing!

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
This was very good and brought back memories. Nice crumb, not too sweet, light and moist, this was a lovely and easy dessert. It would be great with other fruit, such as peaches or apples, or even another berry. Perfect served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
I used this on cupcakes my daughter needed for school, and love how easy it is to make and use. I generally make my chocolate frosting just like this, but without a recipe.

Chicken Scampi II

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
I've made this several times, but am just now getting around to rating it. This is an easy, quick, flavorful dish. I have used Italian seasoning when I was out of the dried parsley and basil, and I always use more chicken and lemon juice than called for in the recipe. I add black pepper, as well, and sometimes chopped onion (which I like even better). I usually cook some pasta noodles and toss with this and then add a vegetable for a very fast dinner on a busy night. My kids enjoy it, and there are never any leftovers!

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
This turned out beautifully. I used butter-flavored shortening and replaced 1/2 cup of the shortening with butter, because I love that buttery taste in a pie crust. I don't think it really needs 3 T of sugar if you are making a very sweet filling, but it's fine for most fruit pies. Be sure to chill your crust in the refrigerator, because it makes a huge difference in ease of handling, as well as the flakiness of the finished crust.

Pioneer Woman's Onion Strings

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
These are so good. I've been making them for a while now and the family loves them. Thanks for posting them here. This way, I can see all my favs right here at AR. I use a mandolin to slice my onion, as it's quicker and they're all the same thickness. My daughter just looked over my shoulder and said, "Yum! Can you make those today, Mom?"

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
It's so hot here in the summer (108 yesterday) that I try to use my slow cooker on the patio whenever I can to keep from heating up the house. I tried this yesterday with a couple of changes - chicken broth rather than beer and extra diced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce (too hot to drive to the store). Thought it needed a little extra flavor, so added cumin, some fresh chopped cilantro and squeezed a couple of small limes into it at the end. Garnished with sliced green onions and served with warm flour tortillas. Had some extra jalapeno jack cheese, so I set that out, too, and everyone thought it was perfect with the soup. This is pretty healthy, too, if you don't overdo the toppings.

Cranberry Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
I love cranberries, so I buy a few extra bags during winter when they're in the stores and freeze them. This looked interesting and different, so I decided to try it. It was a little too sweet, and although it definitely had a good flavor, it was overwhelming. The jalapeno, cranberries, onions and sugar are all strong flavors and it needs something to mellow it a bit. I think I am going to try another reviewer's idea to mix some of it with cream cheese. There is a lot of possibility here, and I love that it is an unusual use of cranberries.
