Chicken Plum Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2014
I made this for dinner last night. We liked it very much; however, we thought it was very heavily chicken and puff pastry. It needed something else. Next time I will try adding some veggies, especially some cubed pre-roasted butternut squash which we usually have on hand(I think this will blend well with the sweetness of the plums). But overall, this is a great idea. The sweetness from the plums and the savory of the seasonings and chicken really go well together. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Mom's Chocolate Zucchini Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2013
These are excellent and exactly what I was looking for to use up some zucchini! I read several other reviews which stated there was too much "spice" from the cloves and cinnamon, and since I was looking for a chocolate chip or a chocolate-chocolate chip cookie, I decided to leave out the cloves and only used 1/2 the cinnamon (we really like cinnamon, so I thought that would be a nice background touch). I also increased the amount of chocolate chips by about a 1/2 cup to make them more of a chocolate chip cookie. And like another review said, I was worried they weren't done after 10 or 11 minutes, but once they sit for a few minutes, they are absolutely perfect! I will definitely try the original recipe with cloves soon. Thanks so much for sharing!

Honey Glazed Carrots and Pears

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2013
Very good; I'm just not sure why the pears are needed... I don't like pears, so I left them out, and followed the rest of the ingredients. Also, I don't have a steamer, and I like my carrots cooked through, so I just boiled some carrot slices for about 7 minutes, drained them and set the carrots aside. Then I mixed the rest of the ingredients together in the melted butter - once it was all combined well, I added back in the carrots until they were well-coated. They were fantastic, and very close to what I was looking for, but I'm only giving this 4 stars because, like another reviewer, I thought the directions were much too complicated for something that didn't need to be. Thanks for sharing!

Spicy Strawberry Kiwi Peach Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2013
This was very good! I knew I liked peach salsa, so this was totally up my alley. I don't like jalapenos at all, so I left them out. I also had to leave out the kiwi since I didn't have any and didn't want to run to the store for just kiwi. But I made due with homemade canned peaches and fresh strawberries, cilantro, and mint from the garden, and the lime juice. The pinch of salt really helps to bring the flavors all together, as I had forgotten it at the first taste and then added it after re-reading the recipe. This was the perfect light lunch, as I was looking for something light and cool on this hot day, and wanted a new way to use up some of our strawberries. I'm about to make a second batch for later! Thank you for sharing!

The Perfect Cinnamon Roll Icing

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2013
Oh my goodness! Like other reviewers have said, the recipe title is completely appropriate. I made strawberry rolls today (like cinnamon rolls, but with strawberries), but I am always unhappy with the cream cheese icing that is included in that recipe. I found this... and I must say, I now have a perfect match. My only problem was I thought I had 12 large rolls, but they must be medium-sized (3-4 inches across). I had a little too much icing, so I will do 3/4 of the recipe next time.

Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 31, 2013
I was looking for a muffin recipe that used oats. The only change I made was I substituted fresh strawberries for the blueberries, since that's what is in season right now, and I sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top. I'm making them to take to a friend, but I wanted to try one out of the oven to see how they turned out. It was so good, I had to have a second. Thanks for sharing!

Classic Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: May 22, 2013
Made tonight according to directions, except I added a little bit of chopped up carrot (because I like carrots in my rice pilaf). I cooked the carrot pieces with the onion. I was really excited, because I have been disappointed by bland rice pilaf before. This was good, but it didn't blow me away. The rice was a perfect texture and the amount of cooking liquid seems to be perfect. However, it seemed to be still lacking something. I used homemade chicken stock, which I have found to be less salty, so perhaps I need more salt or seasonings. I've only ever made rice on the stove before; this was convenient because I was already using the oven for the meat. I will only make this again if I need the convenience of not having something on the stove.

Blueberry Oat Waffles

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2013
This is the only waffle recipe I use for ANY waffles. I have made it exactly as the recipe states, but I have also substituted whole-wheat flour for the white flour, and substituted applesauce for the vegetable oil (leave in 1 Tbsp of oil + 1/4 cup applesauce). We have also substituted strawberries or a mix of berries. Just tonight, I added 1 tsp cinnamon and substituted about 2/3 of chopped apple. This recipe is excellent and versatile! I have come to figure out that this mix makes exactly 2 full waffles (2 rounds in the waffle iron). Thank you so much for sharing!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
As other reviewers have stated, this soup was excellent. I have tried several different adequate potato soup recipes over the years and will no longer need to "try something new". The only change I made to the recipe was I only added 1 1/2 Tbsp chicken bouillon - and I'm glad I didn't add any more, as the soup was too salty. However, next time (and there WILL be a next time) I will only add 1 Tbsp and I expect that to be pretty close to what we like. I will also probably cut back on the pepper next time as well. I also added a chopped carrot when I added the potatoes, and it was a nice touch. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2012
These are AMAZING. I've made them three times so far, and I will never EVER make brownies from a box mix again - especially after freezing lots of shredded zucchini this summer. I have even substituted 1/4 cup applesause and 1/4 cup vegetable oil for the 1/2 cup oil, and used half regular flour and half whole wheat flour. The icing is also phenomenal - not like butter cream, not like whipped icing, not like cream cheese icing - totally its own thing and a perfect match for the brownie. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!

Tomato Vodka Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
Wow. This sauce is MARVELOUS! I actually used my own homemade tomato sauce, which I had canned in the summer, which took away most of the simmering & thickening time. I used this sauce to go with the "Easy Butternut Squash Ravioli" recipe also found on this site, and it was a perfect combination. Thanks so much for sharing!

Easy Butternut Squash Ravioli

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
WOW!!! This was an easy (though a little time-conuming) homemade ravioli recipe, and I was more than pleased with the outcome! I did not want to buy mascarpone cheese because it seemed expensive at my store, so I substituted cream cheese, and the outcome was still amazing. I froze the extra ravioli as another viewer suggested. I combined this recipe with the Tomato Vodka Sauce on this site... so, so good. Thank you for sharing!

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
I have made this several times and find it is wonderful every time! The only things I change are: 1. When we don't have fresh herbs, dried work fine, and 2. We like our meat medium-well to well done, so we cook our chops 5-6 minutes on each side, depending on their size. I also save any leftover sauce to use as a steak sauce... it is fabulous! Thank you so much for sharing.

Kyle's Favorite Beef Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
This beef stew rivals Mom's. I could never recreate hers; I have found my beef stew recipe. My husband and I don't like mushrooms, so I left them out, but did add the wine to the pan to get up the onion drippings and heat it up just a little before adding it to the crockpot. (I just used the red wine I had on hand and it gave it a great flavor!) Next time I might add some peppers or green beans since hubby likes them, but this recipes is great as is. Thanks so much for posting! This one's going into the real recipe box!

Deep Dish Alfredo Pizza

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
This was PERFECT. I had a ready-made pizza crust and was looking for a white sauce recipe, and this was the taste I've been looking for for a few years now! I even had to substitute with milk, since I didn't have cream on hand, and I just used a little less to keep the consistency consistent. I added fresh basil and sauteed onions, since we like them. Thanks so much for sharing!

Fabulous Zucchini Grinders

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
I made this for lunch because it sounded so yummy and I just had to try it before dinner time. I followed the recipe, except for adding a little onion and garlic for more flavor. It tasted like pizza on a roll with zucchini. Very disappointing. Two stars. However, I find it is worth 4 stars because I tweaked it for our tastes. I combined this recipe with our classic Philly cheesesteak recipe. After sauteeing the zucchini, 1/4 onion, 2 cloves minced garlic, basil to taste, and a sprinkle of montreal steak seasoning, I set it aside and cooked my frozen steak sandwich meat. The secret ingredient to a Philly cheesesteak is adding cheesewhiz to the steakmeat. I then added the sauce to the meat, and piled it all on the roll with some shredded mozzerella cheese, and baked it in the oven as directed. I also lightly toasted the roll, as another reviewer suggested, to keep teh roll from getting soggy. Those flavors really worked well together. It might have been the best steak sandwich I've ever eaten. I served with sweet potato fries and a salad. I will definitely be making this again.

Shrimp Creole

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2011
This was the perfect recipe for us, since I wanted to use up some shrimp and leftover tomato sauce. I noticed another reviewer used cream of celery soup, and since I like creamier sauces, I thought I'd give it a try. I used everything the recipe called for (plus some dried oregano and basil), except adding the can of cream of celery soup diluted with about 1/4 cup milk. I mixed it in slowly to the tomato mixture. I cooked the medium-sized shrimp for about 2 minutes on each side, until they were pink throughout. This made a wonderful, thick, creamy tomato sauce to top the shrimp and rice. My version may not be anything like true shrimp creole, and it did not have any hot kick, but both husband and I loved it and will definitely make again!

Skillet Zucchini

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
I give this 5 stars because it is yet another delicious way to use up these unceasing zucchini. Our tomatoes weren't quite ready, so I used up some leftover speghetti sauce. I added garlic and thyme, and had to cook the zucchini a little longer until it was to our liking, but otherwise I followed the recipe. Delicious! Thanks for sharing!
