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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

Pistachio Fruit Salad

Reviewed: May 9, 2009
mmmm! just like I remember. :) I didn't have sugar free pistachio pudding, so I used regular and it worked out fine. I also like marshmallows & coconut in mine, but didn't add them because hubby prefers it w/o. ;)

Belle's Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
These were so easy to make and turned out delicious! They do make a slightly more dense bun, but not what I would consider too heavy. I used my KitchenAid to knead the dough and only did so for about 6 minutes. Next time I'll knead it for a little less to see if it yields a lighter bun. The taste was fabulous and I'll never go back to store bought again!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
This recipe is wonderful! It tastes just as good, if not better, than Manwich and is cheaper to make. I don't always have the store bought on hand, but always have these ingredients! I used ground turkey and followed the recipe exactly. I covered it while "simmering", allthough I don't believe simmering is the word I would use. There isn't enough liquid for that...perfect though. We thought it had a similar sweetness to Manwich and I wouldn't change a thing! Thanks for the great recipe!! :)

Never Fail Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
Great biscuits! Mine didn't rise quite as big as I hoped they would, but this could be due to the fact that I have a terrible eye for measurements. I think I rolled the dough a bit thinner than 3/4". Otherwise, I was very pleased and for once I didn't serve my family hockey pucks for dinner! Thanks for the great recipe. This will be a regular in my house!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
This could not have been easier! I didn't make the dumpling s because I didn't have any biscuits, so I made the Never Fail Biscuits from this site and baked them seperatly. I used 2 cans cream of chicken and 1 can cream of celery as I had quite alot of chicken and veggies to cover. I also used 1 can of chicken broth. Next time I think I'll add water instead of the broth because it was slightly salty...but not too bad. This recipe was extremely convenient using frozen chicken breasts. I used 1 chopped onion, 1 bag of steamfresh fozen corn and 1 bag s.f. frozen peas along w/ cut fresh baby carrots. I added this to the bottom of my crock first and topped w/ 2 cloves garlic minced, dry parsley, pepper, & a bit of sage. Topped this w/ the frozen chicken and poured the soups and broth that I had mixed up before hand over the chicken. Cooked on low for about 8-9 hours and then shredded the chicken w/ 2 forks right in the crock! Too easy! What a wonderful, hearty stew for cool autumn days, which is what it was like today! :)

Chocolate Velvet Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
This ice cream was great! I did add some really good quality white chocolate that I chopped up as well and it's fabulous! I also added 1/2 tsp vanilla, but I think next time I'll leave it out. It really doesn't need it. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
What a wonderful recipe! I cut down the sugar by half becuase I wanted a less sweet bread for sandwiches. It's amazing. The texture is fabulous and still has a nice very slight sweetness in the background. Thanks to all who recommended this one!!

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. :)

Melt-In-Your-Mouth Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
I wasn't sure how good this would be since it seemed very moist when I put it in the crock. But, it was very good! I could have used a leaner ground beef, but all I had was 80% (which is what I normally use for hamburgers). That being said, it was still really good. Next time I make it I'll use a lean ground beef to cut down on the fat. ;)

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
SOOO good! I wish I could say mine came out as pretty as the picture, but I didn't take them out when I should have (busy w/ the kids) and they were a bit dark. But still, amazing! I frosted them w/ cream cheese frosting. Mine took longer to rise (about 50 min) but that's ok. Will be making these again for sure!

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2009
I"m giving this 5 stars because my son went back for 3rds...and my hubby continuously said it was good. I liked it as well, I just wish it looked better on the plate. Totally tastes better than it looks. So don't be scared when you take it out of the oven and think to yourself "Oh boy...do I want to try it?" ;) Try it, you'll be happy you did.
