Pork Fried Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
Very good! I left out the broccoli (personal preference) but kep everything else the same. I would like a little stronger flavor so next time I'll add maybe 1/4 more of the soy sauce, ginger, and garlic. Overall though, really nice. It got better as it sat. :)

Texas Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
This was so good! I reduced the recipe for 1 serving and grilled the chicken on my George Forman grill, then sliced it. Cooked the onions as suggested accept I used cooking spray in place of the olive oil. Mixed the bbq sauce (Sweet Baby Rays) w/ the chicken in a bowl then layered as directed on tthe tortilla that I cut in half. Then, I grilled the whole thing lightly on my foreman again (sprayed w/ cooking spray). OH! It was so good! And only 5 points for weight watchers! Will be making again and again!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
These were really good! I followed the recipe and also added 1 tsp of Creme Bouquet (a flavoring you can find online which has citrus, almond, and vanilla notes). They were fabulous! I got tired of rolling and cutting shapes, so I refrigerated the rest of the dough. A few days later, I rolled it into balls and pressed down w/ a glass moistened slightly w/ water and dipped in cinnamon sugar. When cooled, I drizzled them w/ sugar cookie icing that was flavored w/ maple extract and cinnamon. YUM!!!

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
First of all, this icing tastes much bett on th cookie than it does on your finger..or spoon. Something happens when it hits that cookies and sets. I needed ot make 4 batches of this for different colors for the sugar cookies. One batch I kept white and used maple extract in and a little cinnamon for maple flavored icing. So good! I did need a little more milk than called for, but it's really a personal preference on desired consistency.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
Oh wow! I never like homemade chocolate frosting becuase it's just not chocolaty enough. This was sooo good! I used Ghirardelli Premium Baking Cocoa and only made 1/2 the batch for my cupcakes. I didn't use quite the full amount of milk since I wanted to decorate w/ it. I also added 1/4 cup of Mocha Almond Fudge International Delight liquid creamer. (I've made it w/o and it's just as good!)OH my goodness! The more you beat this, the creamier it gets and also increases in volume. This is also a nice crusting recipe. (Forms a crust when left out to sit but stays soft on the inside.) Cover when not using to prevent a crust from forming. :)

Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
These were fabulous!! I've never made onion rings at home like this! I didn't have a deep fryer, so I just put 2" or so of oil in my pot and used my digital probe thermometer to test the temp of the oil on the stove top. Crisp and crunchy and well worth the effort! :)

Cranberry Orange Loaf

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
This was so good! I didn't have pecans, so I used walnuts and I left out the orange peel becuase, well, I didn't have any fresh oranges. It was still great! I was surprised that it didn't call for any spices, but it doesn't need it. The tartness of the cranberry's were complimented nicely by the sweetness of the bread. Not too sweet though. :) I baked mine in my pampered chef mini loaf stoneware pan that has 4 loaves in one pan. It took about 40 min and I had to cover it w/ foil the last 10 to prevent over browning. YUMMM! Hubby tood one of the loaves for breakfast...that's right, thw whole mini loaf. :)

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
This was pretty good. I can't say that I was wowed by it, but it was certainly tasty enough for me to want more. I'll surely make it again. I think it might be even better if the chicken were pounded thin and then fried. (Let's face it, w/ all that butter in this recipe it really doesn't matter if it's baked or fried). Unfortunalty, I hate pounding chicken, so I'll leave that to someone who doesn't mind the effort. :)

Banana Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
I'm sort of up in the air as to how many stars to give this recipe. I went w/ 5 because when it comes down to it, I probably could have eaten half the pan and I like that the recipe only calls for one banana...unlike banana bread which usually calls for at least 3.It is a great alternative when you don't have that many around. I didn't make the frosting since I was out of bananas and the bars themselves taste pretty much like banana bread, only a little sweater. I did add about 1 tsp of banana extract along w/ the vanilla. Otherwise, I stayed true to the recipe. Very good!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
Okay..Im giving this 4 stars because it was super hot! I'm VERY sure that I must have measured wrong w/ the peppers though...my 10 yr old son was reading them off to me (my big mistake!). So, I will definitly make this again when I'm less distracted. I mean we're talking lip burning hotter than hot hot!...but I have to admit..I kept picking at it. ;)

Apple Toast

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2008
I made this for a snack today and lightened it up by using light butter and splenda w/ the cinnamon. I drizzled it w/ maple syrup (just a smidge...not enough to add any major calories). All in all it was good. I could have sliced my apples thinner though as mine didn't get as soft as I would have liked.

Apple Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
My kids loved this and so did I!...even my hubby had a hard time NOT eating this! I don't know why I waited so long to try this super easy recipe. It was the first recipe I ever added to my box...so glad we tried this one!

Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
This is just really yummy. The steaks are tender and not too salty in my opinion. I didn't have cream o chicken, so I used 1 can cream o mushroom and 1 can cream o celery (both fat free). I used a fattier 80% lean ground beef cause it's all I had and it turned out great. I'm sure w/ the leaner meat it would be even better! Made nice gravy too! Will definitely make again!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
These were simply wonderful! An extremely comforting...and addicting cookie! Lovely w/ a cup of tea and so soft! I couldn't "roll" mine into balls. The batter is just to soft. So I shaped mine into ball-like mounds and then dampened the bottom of a glass w/ water and dipped in sugar and pressed them down slightly..not too thin. Then I sprinkile w/ just a touch more sugar and popped them in the oven. I had to stop myself from eating them! For a girl on WW, 3 pts per cookie is alot when you've had 3 cookies in one shot! ;)

Biscotti

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2008
I've never made biscotti before this and I truly had no clue what I was doing. While I was making it, I thought I would give this recipe 4 stars because it's not really a firm dough...so I wouldn't say you can form it into a log shape. I didn't divide the dough either and just piled it up on my cookie sheet on parchment and shaped it into a reasonable shape and patted it down w/ damp hands (thanks to the reviewer who suggested wetting your hands!). I added slivered almonds and was making this as a gift to go in a basket fullof other homemade goodies. I was praying it would turn out! Well, it did! I had some really good size biscotti in the end and the taste is amazing! I also omitted the anise (didn't have any) and replaced it w/ 3/4 Tbsp almond extract and 1/4 Tbsp vanilla. I cut w/ a pizza cutter while still warm (almost hot) and while I was cutting, I put my hand at the opposite end of the slab of biscotti and pushed my fingers against it to prevent the end pieces from braking off when the pizza cutter passed through. It worked great! Thanks for the great recipe! I'll be making it again very soon!

Hot Cocoa Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
Not bad. I think I would prefer it a tad sweeter. It's creamy enough. I measured out all my ingredients in a bowl then sifted it all together, combining well. I have some lumps on the bottom of my mug which don't seem to want to stir out. Not sure why. I'll be keeping this mix for home and not giving as gifts though. I think it needs a bit more tweaking first.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
Scrumptious! I love the crumbly topping to the top and bottom of this dish! Who doesn't like that stuff? ;)I did doubel the curmb mixture because I didn't think that 1/2 was enough to cover the bottom of a 13 x 9. Even I have to admit though that doubling the crumble means you should have enough apples to stand up to it...otherwise it was fabulous!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
This was my first attempt at apple pie and over all I'm pleased. The taste is very nice and I love the way the top crust gets kind of crunchy from the glaze! My biggest problem was that my bottom crust was soggy. :( I'm very disappointed in this. I'm not sur what caused it and I"m sure it's more my fault than the actual recipe. I will certainly be trying again very soon!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
Oh. I'm speechless. This was...sooo good! First of all, my children loved it (including my 12 month old who reapeatiedly said "mmmmm" with every bite). I didn't have chicken boullion granules and was conscerned about the amount of sodium if I used cubes, so I substituted chicken broth for the water in the same amounts and it was fabulous! Used the same amount of salt (kosher) as called for and added 1 bag of pre-cooked steam fresh corn per hubbies request (and a great request it was). I also used 1% milk because it's all I had and my conscerns of it not being thick or creamy enough were shot down completely! I bet you could use skim milk and it would still taste heavenly. It took my milk and flour/butter/flour mixture about 10 min to thicken instead of the 4-5 that the recipe states, but that was ok by me. I used about 4 cup potatoes cause that's what it worked out to be and about 2 cups of ham ( I think I'll add more next time...which will be tomorrow)! Thanks for the delicious, wonderful, too good for words soup!
