Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2012
This was fantastic! I, like others, doubled the cheese and broccoli and used 1/2 & 1/2 in place of milk. I mixed the cornstarch with the last can of chicken broth instead of using water. I honestly think you could get away w/ 1/4 cup of cornstarch though and I plan on doing so next time. As much as I LOVE the taste w/ all that velveeta, I might try 1/2 velveeta 1/2 cheddar next time. After it finished cooking, I took my handy stick/wand blender thingy and pureed it until almost smooth. This reheated beautifully the next day and it reminds me very much of 99 Restaurant's broccoli & cheese soup. I have 6 children, and over half of them liked this so I call that a win!

Summer Grilled Cabbage

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
This was so good! Like others, I wrapped mine individually in foil and grilled w/o the pan over indirect heat. Fantastic! Both hubby and myself said we'll make it this way from now on. :)

Crazy Good Stuffing and Baked Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2010
I'm the submitter of this recipe and I'd like to note that when you stir in the mushroom soup and the stuffing into the "creamy gravy"...you cannot simmer this. Just cook it for a few min. I wish I had more control over the editing process of my father's recipe as some things have been changed (like words and time). This really is a recipe that you just eye ball as it cooks. For example, it may take less than 10 min for your pan drippings to reduce by half. ;) Otherwise, a big thanks to the AR staff for publishing my father's recipe!! :D

Scrambled Eggs Done Right

Reviewed: May 20, 2010
This is the way scrambled eggs should be! I increased the recipe for 8 servings and used Miracle Whip. I did add the water and the s & p before cooking. I know it says not to, but I personally like salting during cooking and think it tastes better that way. Awesome recipe! Fluffy, perfectly cooked scrambled eggs. All of my 5 children (including my most picky 4 yr old) LOVED them and wanted more!

Healthy Fruit & Oat Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
These were surprisingly good. They're what I would consider a breakfast cookie and naturally ...and lightly, sweet. Like others, I replaced the oil w/ unsweetened applesauce, used about 1/3 rainins/craisins in place of dates as well as adding 1 sm apple chopped. In addition, I added about 1/4 cup chocolate chips. I wasn't sure they would hold their shape, but w/ a bit of pressing together, they did. Baked at 325F for 15 min. They were soft, chewy...and my chldren LOVED them. Yay! a healthy cookie that they'll eat! They're moist, so I wouldn't let them sit in a container for more than a few days or I suspect they'll mold. However, mine didn't last more than 24 hrs. ;) Will definitley make mulitiple times over. :)

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
This stuff is AWESOME! My first time making caramel and it was easy. :) However, "drizzling it slowly" wasn't. It was somewhat difficult to mix in the big bowl while pouring the caramel at the same time. Would have been easier w/ a helper. Next time I think I'll lay the popcorn out on cookie sheets and try it that way first. I followed the recipe exactly...only cooked it for 45 min though. I was clumsy and dropped one of the pans on the floor...so I didn't have as much as I wanted. I'll be making more this weekend. ;) Would be excellent in cute little cellophane bags tied w/ a ribbon as gifts. :)

You've got to try this Spinach Pie!

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
I love this spinach pie recipe. It's really one of the only ways I eat spinach. My MIL just tried it subbing 1/2 lb cooked chopped bacon for the sausage and she said it was even better! I can't even imagine! It's on my to do list now. ;)

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
These were really good! I needed something quick and not too involved to bring to a family function..and this was perfect! I left out the nuts due to allergies and added 1/2 cup of toffee chips. I also cut the recipe in 1/2 and used one 9 x 13" pyrex dish to bake. It took a total of 23 min to bake. They were soft, chewy, and very sweet, but so good! I'l be making these again for sure!

No Roll Pie Crust II

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
I think for a fast pie crust w/o the worry of rolling, it's really good. I was concerned it would be too oily, but it turned out quite nice. Had a nice flavor and was flaky. I did add 1/2 tsp of butter flavor to it, but otherwise followed it exactly. I used this for apple pie since I failed miserably rolling out a traditional crust! I'll use this one again :)

Barbeque Pork Two Ways

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
This was very moist and flavorful. I had a 7 1/2 lb pork shoulder picnic (bone in) that I used. I put the whole thing in the slow cooker. I wouldn't recommend this specific cut of meat as it was quite time consuming shredding it and yeilds a lot less meat than I thought it would. That said, it worked in a pinch and the taste was great! I had to add a about a cup of Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce cause I didn't have quite enough ketchup for the amount of pork I had. It's very good and flavorful once you add the sauce back to the shredded pork. I still have alot of sauce left over. :)

Garden Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
I had trouble w/ the carrots cooking in the amount of time the recipe called for. It took at least 40 min for them to be tender, and I chopped them fairly small. I would recommend dicing them instead. I would also recommend not adding the flour to the veggies first. Next time I make this, I'll add the stock (I used stock in place of boullion & water) to the veggies and simmer till tender. Then, stir the flour into the milk and add that to the soup along w/ the cheese. This will allow more time if needed for the veggies to cook w/o affecting the texture, as I noticed the soup was slightly grainy from having to cook it too long. Otherwise, the taste was lovely and my children went back for seconds. :) ETA: I also thought 2/3 cup of flour was alot. It could probably be cut back to 1/3 cup w/ success. :)

Graham Cracker Crust

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
Excellent, simple, basic graham cracker crust. I used this for the Toll House Pie I recipe here and it was perfect. I didn't prebake as my pie had to bake anyway. So I just popped it in the fridge for 30 min before filling. OH! Fabulous!

Toll House Pie I

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
So I've made this twice. The first time there was just way too much butter. Hubby and I use to get toll house pie at a restaurant we would go to frequently when we were dating & first married. I wanted something less gooey. The taste was there... but the texture was off from all that butter. Also, the pie we're use to had a graham cracker crust. So the next time I made it I cut the butter down to 1/2 cup and didn't melt it. I softened it (It was very soft..some of it melted). I made Graham Cracker Crust from this site first and pressed that in my pie plate and let it sit in the fridge for 30 min before I filled it. Baked for about 55 min (last 10 cover w/ foil) and it was perfect! Still nice & moist. With these modifications, it's a 5 star recipe..but as is, 4 stars.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2009
I so wish I could have given this 4 1/2 stars! I really think it deserves more than 4, but I just couldn't give it 5. See, the thing is, I love salt. But even for me this was a bit too salty. I would cut back on the salt definitely. Also, I prefer more ricotta in my lasagna. Otherwise, super tasty and will certainly make again w/ those modifications. :-)

Chip Chicken Lollipops

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2009
This was ok, but I was expecting better considering the rating. I even dipped it in italian dressing before coating it and although it helped add flavor, the chicken wasn't crispy which turned us off a bit. If I'm going to eat something that obviously not healthy, I want it to be worth my while. ;) sorry!

Crispy Fried Chicken

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
This was pretty good, definitly crispy! I still think the recipe could use some tweaking as it was a bit bland. I fried my drumsticks in my deep fryer @ 375 degrees for about 14 min and they were done perfectly. :)

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: May 13, 2009
Wow! This is some tasty crust! It was nice and chewy, not tough at all. I doubled the recipe for my large family and used rapid rise yeast. I added about 2 tsp italian seasoning and 1 tsp garlic powder to the oil before adding it to the dough. The smell was fabulous and just what we were looking for in a homemade pizza dough. Hubby usually leaves the crust behind, but he ate every bit this time and said he could eat more...if there were any left. ;)

Easy Pizza Sauce III

Reviewed: May 13, 2009
Awsome sauce! It's thick enough to stand up to your toppings and has really nice flavor. I added 1 tsp of sugar and was out of paprika so I didn't add that. (I couldn't believe I was out!!) Super quick..took like 2 min and I have plenty to freeze for at least 2 more pizzas..maybe more. :) I"ll be making this from now on.

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
These were very good! I've never had a turkey burger I liked, but I'm sold on these. Even my VERY picky 3 yr old ate it! It was so nice to sit at the dinner table w/ my 5 children and hubby and not hear one complaint! That's worth more than 5 stars in my book! I only had 1/2 the turkey, and I actually forgot about this while I was making them and ended up adding the same amount of ingredients to it. oops! I also ran out of bread crumbs (grrr!) so I seasoned some panko crumbs and used those instead. Then I coated the outside of the formed burgers in the seasoned panko crumbs. Delicious!! A keeper for sure. My hubby said he enjoyed these just as much, if not more, than regular burgers! Oh yeah...I took the advice of others and added a few dashes of low sodium soy sauce and worcestershire sauce. :)
