Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
Tasty and simple. I have made this a variety of ways and everyone says it has a "restaurant flavor". Sometimes I use turkey sausauge, or hamburger meat. I also puree twice the amount of garlic in my food processor, we love the flavor of garlic. I have also used a 26 oz. jar of pasta sauce instead of the canned tomatoes. It always turns out well.

Greek Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
Very nice, light flavor. I used 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts instead of a chicken quartered. I also grated 5 cloves of garlic instead of 3 chopped. Simple and versatile, I serve this with brocolli or over a salad for a light dinner.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
First of all this chicken is great hot in a wrap or even cold in a packed lunch. You can serve this so many ways. When I make sandwiches I leave the chicken breasts whole and add ranch dressing on the top. For the wraps I actually shred the chicken after cooking it in the skillet. This is great when it is cooked on the grill or on the stovetop.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
Yummy! These are my personal favorite kind of cookie! I did not change anything about the proportions of the ingredients, except I doubled the sugar/cinnamon mixture and used butter flavored shortening. I actually more than doubled the size of the cookies (servings size of 18) and changed the baking time to 13 minutes and they were perfect! Thank you!

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
With a few changes this is a five star recipe. I used cream of chicken soup instead of cream of mushroom, added 1 Tablespoon of chili powder, pinch of cayenne, 1 tsp of garlic powder, 1/2 cup of salsa to the filling and 3/4 cup of salsa to the topping. Rotisserie chicken would be great, shredded up in the filling, or I just cooked 3 breasts in some oil and sprinkled them with garlic powder, chili powder, salt, and pepper. This made 8, filled, 6 inch tortillas. I used the salsa instead of the steps with the green onions and can of green chilis.

Kentucky Butter Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
This was a good cake, but the glaze was a too sweet. I think that next time I would just put a chocolate glaze on top because the actual cake had nice texture and taste. I did not make any changes. Note that I never seem to have buttermilk on hand, so I just added 1 Tablespoon of white vinegar to 1 cup of milk.

Easy Cream Cheese Danish

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
Wow these are good and pretty easy to make!! As everyone has said, I reduced the cream cheese to one 8oz. brick and the sugar to a 1/2 cup. I have made this a couple of ways, sometimes I add 2 tsp. of cinnamon(to taste) and omit the lemon juice. Wow! Very good! I also will do the plain cream cheese filling or add 1/4 cup of jelly/jam. Also, I do not do the top and bottom layer, but rather I place one crescent on the baking sheet, add the filling generously over it and then place another crescent on top and pinch the edges together. Perfection!

Pizza Pinwheels

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
These are addicting. Fairly easy once you get the hang of it, definitely take the advice of others and freeze these before cutting up. I diced the pepperoni slices, probably used less than a cup of cheese, but almost 45 slices of pepperoni. Very good, mine took a lot longer to bake, not sure why. I will be making these again, big hit.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies III

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
Very good and very easy...I love that this recipe uses quick oats because I usually have those on hand. This made about 8 sandwich cookies so 16 individuals cookies, but they were very large. The frosting is so good and if you don't have heavy whipping cream, I have used milk before and it tastes just as good!

Chicken Cordon Bleu I

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
So good!! It would be even better with a cream sauce to go on top. The only change I made was to roll the chicken in the bread crumbs and sprinkle them on top! Very easy to make!

Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Orzo

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
This is a very good side dish, not a ton of flavor but still tasty. I made a few changes, doubled the amount of sun-dried tomatoes, increased the parmesan cheese to 1 cup, doubled the amount of olive oil...to your taste, and added 1 tsp. of garlic powder and an extra 2 cloves of garlic. Good with a chicken dish!

Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2008
Super easy to make and my friends and family cannot get enough of it. Make sure to put this in the fridge over night to set up. I made a couple of other changes including using a total of 6 eggs, and 1 tsp. of dried minced onion and a pinch of black pepper. I have made it without the mustard powder and it is just as good.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2008
Good and pretty easy, does take longer than 90 minutes, more like 2 hours, still, if you do not have a bread machine this is perfect. I followed the directions exactly, except I added a cream cheese frosting. The frosting is 4 oz. of cream cheese, 1/4 cup of softened butter, 2 cups of powdered sugar, 1/2 tsp. of vanilla, pinch of salt, 1-2 tablespoons of milk depending on desired consistency.

Texas Sheet Cake V

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2008
Always a hit!! I did not change a thing, except I used a 9x13 pan and I cooked it for 27-30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. I prepare the frosting in the last five minutes that the cake is cooking and make sure to pour it over warm cake!

Antipasto Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2008
Very good, people always ask me for the recipe. I use spiral pasta instead of seashell. I use a 7 oz. package of pepperoni slices instead of hte deli salami and pepperoni sausage...I cut the slices in half. I also used cubed mozzarella or colby jack, also chopped in half. Instaed of the bell pepper, I use a 10 oz. jar of artichokes, also chopped. I use whole cherry tomatoes and 2 packages of the dressing mix, reserving half of one for the actually dressing. Yum!

Hot Onion Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2008
Wow! Everyone went crazy over this and I had person after person asking me for this recipe. I reduced the amount of cream cheese down to 2 8oz. packages, I used 2 cups of shredded Italian cheese mixture, I also sprinkled in 1 tsp. of onion powder. The most important thing is to saute the onion in 2-3 tablespoons of butte for 10-15 minutes. So delicious. I serve with a toasted french bagette bread.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2008
I made this for a BBQ dinner party and everyone went crazy over it, people were even putting it on their burgers!! I made a few changes that make all the difference. First off, I did not use canned chicken, instead I sprinkled 1 lb. of chicken tenders with garlic powder, salt, and pepper and cooked in a little bit of vegetable oil. Once the chicken cooled, I shredded it into a pot and cooked with Frank's Buffalo sauce. I would suggest 1/2 c. ranch and 1/2 cup of blue cheese dressing and no cheddar cheese because it makes the dip oily. Also, instead of cooking this in the crockpot, I transferred the dip to a baking dish and baked for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. I served with celery stick and tortilla chips.

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2008
Wow!! I love making everything homemade and this frosting is my favorite for chocolate. I did not change a thing. I scaled the recipe to a serving size of 8, and that was perfect for 12 cupcakes. Very easy and delicious!

Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2008
The only reason I am giving this 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the difficulty in having the bacon and hamburger cooked fully at the same time. This burger is great without the bacon actually, great cheese flavor. The only thing I changed was adding a tablespoon of dried minced onion instead of fresh and a 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder and I omitted the egg. Overall had great flavor.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2008
These are delicious, I made them for family and everyone insisted I give them the recipe. Someone actually said they wanted to eat a huge bowl of these as their entire dinner! I made a couple of changes, I added salt and pepper to the sauce before stirring it in with the potatoes and onions. I also sauteed the onions, cut into smaller pieces, with a couple tablespoons of butter to cut down on the raw onion flavor. I would also suggest mixing the onions, potatoes, and sauce all together and definitely uncover these for the last 20 minutes. Great recipe!
