Peanut Butter Vegetable Chicken Soup

Awesome recipe! Great unique taste! Thank you very much for the inspiration. I followed the recipe but ended up changing quite a few things including adding a little cayenne to mine. Will definitely make this one again!

Ham and Swiss Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
My family all enjoyed this dish. I could easily see how frozen peas would taste great in it also or even celery bits. I enjoyed the texture and flavor of the onions and green peppers that is what made this even more flavorful for me. I would definitely make this again. It was easy and a family pleaser. (The only thing I changed was I added cheddar cheese to the dish as well as I'm not a Swiss Cheese fan) Thanks to the Creator of this recipe.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
Very good. I did as suggested and layered instead of mixed it altogether but then ultimately just ended up mixing it altogether anyway and it's just as good either way IMO. We're taking this for a thanksgiving dip tomorrow. Yum! Thanks much!

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
Ok I'm not a huge spinach dip fan but I was creating this for my family since they love it. I made it and decided to sample it and it is good even for me :) Thanks for a great recipe. I know my husband will love it as will his family.

Uncle Bill's Sweet and Sour Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
I altered this a bit due to other reviewers. I added 1/2 cup vinegar instead of 1 cup and still next time I think I'd use a little less than 1/2 cup. I tasted the vinegar and my husband hates vinegar taste lol so I added more sugar and he says it was the perfect amount of sweet/sour. I would say that I added an extra 1/3 cup of sugar to mine. My husband and children loved it. It's not like my all time favorite restaurant's sauce but it isn't meant to be so it's definitely a good and easy sauce to make. I would make it again. Thank you so much for sharing it.

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
Very flavorful. My family enjoyed it and the only thing we did was cut the pepper in 1/2 and added a little more soy sauce (our preference). Thank you so much for a great tasting meal. I have my own recipe was too lazy to make it and wanted an easier one. :) I think this makes more than 3 servings also. I have a family of 6 and I'd say it'd for sure feed 4 to 6 people depending on portions. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Golden Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
Excellent Soup! I loved the combination of flavors. It was perfect for a nice cold day. MMM MMM comfort food :) Thank you so much for the recipe. I adjusted it to feed 4 since my other kids are at school during our lunch time. The only thing that I did differently was add 2 slices of American Cheese and about a cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese &thyme instead of parsley as that was what I had on hand. I also used 1 TSP of chicken bouillon granules instead of cubes. Will definitely make this again.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
I seem to be the odd woman out on this recipe. It was edible and ok but honestly I've tasted better brownies. I was not in the least impressed and will not make again. I followed the directions and am not a novice so I'm not sure if it's personal preference or what. I ate one piece and hated the icing so I scraped that off. I even followed the suggestions of cutting 1/2 the powdered sugar. I didn't think it had enough sweet flavor or something (the brownie that is) I am not sure what was missing for me but something definitely wasn't there that I was looking for in my brownie.

Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
Very Good Recipe! My husband really enjoyed the flavor that the marinade created and said he's going to request this be made again soon. FYI: I didn't have any Sherry so Instead I used Pineapple Juice and added Pineapples to my marinade. It turned out wonderfully. The only thing I plan on doing next time is just doubling the recipe to cover the meat more. I soaked mine in the marinade for 48 hrs. Thank You for Posting this recipe :)

Pasta e Olio

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
This recipe was really simple and tasty. I didn't have the parsley and I'm sure I was missing some real flavor but even without it I'd recommend it. I used a different shaped pasta and added about 1/2 cup of Parmesean Cheese to it. Very tasty. I may even add more cayenne next time. Thanks for the recipe :)

Portuguese Sweet Bread I

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
Wonderful recipe! Perfect amount of sweetness as stated before. I am so happy to have this recipe thank you for sharing. It's simple and easy to follow even without a breadmaker. I used my kitchen aid dough hook and mixed all ingredients and allowed to rise for 1 hr and then punched down and shaped into rolls and let rise for another 15 minutes. They were wonderful. My family all enjoyed them and they were gone quick. Thanks to previous reviewers as well for tips on using the kitchen aid,making rolls and using all purpose flour(as a substitute). I can't wait to do more with the recipe. Thanks so much for sharing. Update: 12/15/08 I made these again last night and have made them numerous times. We love these rolls. I have made the dough in the bread machine and in the mixer with dough hook and both work great. The mixer is quick and easy. Just Warm the Milk add the yeast and sugar and allow to proof until foamy (10 mins or so) and then throw in the rest of the ingredients and mix and form into rolls or bread loaf. Allow to rise for about 30 mins-1hr and then Bake at 350 F for about 20 minutes or until lightly browned. I usually butter the tops also. My husband says these would be great with Jelly the next morning. This recipe makes 12 rolls.

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
A great alternative to regular chocolate chip cookies. We really enjoyed them and especially love that they do not spread out like some cookies do. I am more of a cookie lover of the crisp outside but soft/chewy inside but still enjoyed the cookie and would definitely make again. After sitting the cookie gets a little crispy but I would imagine if you threw in a slice of bread in a sealed container with the cookies that it'd help with that issue. We only have a few left lol so I am not concerned. I am just thankful for the great recipe.

Easter Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
Very good! My family of 6 gobbled it right up. Thanks so much. The only thing that I did differently was add salt,pepper,garlic powder,1/2 cup of sour cream,tabasco sauce & I did precook and crumble the bacon and shredded my own potatoes and salt/peppered it and threw in oven prior to adding the mixture to the dish. Thanks to previous posters whom mentioned to cook the bacon and potatoes first and layer the potatoes on the bottom. Everything came out perfectly. The only thing that I'd change is the name of this casserole :)

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
Our family loved these and I have to say I used 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast in place of the instant yeast packet and that seemed to do the trick thankfully. I was skeptical but I'm glad I did it anyway. I also used my kitchenaid mixer which was a nice help. Afer making these last night I decided to only bake 4 of them to see how they'd come out (because of the yeast alteration) they spread apart too much and didn't hold together in shape well but the others I left in the freezer overnight in the pan covered in plastic wrap and pulled out and put directly in the oven for 30 minutes and they came out perfect. I let the rest as someone else suggested for a few minutes to cool/firm up. They were absolutely great and perfect in flavor. Thanks so much for an excellent/easy recipe. I would imagine that pecans would be great on these.

Sunday Chicken Supper

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
I thought this recipe was simple,easy and very good. I did make a couple of extra additions/substitutions however. I did use boneless/skinless chicken breasts,shredded carrots,french green beans,russet potatoes,onions,celery & garlic powder,salt,pepper,basil&thyme seasonings. I ended up doubling the water amount and bouillon and ultimately thought I'd like a sauce of some kind so I used leftover bacon drippings and added flour,1/2 milk & 1/2 remaining chicken broth from the crockpot (after it was complete)as well as some salt and it was a very good gravy to go over the vegetables. My husband and 4 children all enjoyed it. Thanks for the great recipe and the inspiration for the gravy :)

The Best Double Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
Wow! Fresh out of the oven and slightly cripsy and ooey gooey chewy on the inside. I just loved this cookie. I could only eat 2 and I am a sweet food junkie most days so that's saying alot lol. They are rich and delicious. I may put a few less chips in next time but not sure as they were just wonderful even still. The only thing different that I did was add 1/2 tsp salt to the butter mixture and 1/2 tsp baking powder to the flour mixture. These cookies were the pefect thickness (not too thin or thick) and they did not spread even without freezing or flash freezing the dough. That's a great benefit as well. I froze 3 small logs (enough for each to make 12 cookies) and ate 1 log fresh. Thanks for a wonderful recipe that I'll continue to use. My family loved them. Update: 2/18/08: I made these for a chocolate fellowship at church last night and the recipe allowed me to yeild 60 cookies total and they were all gone quickly. Still one of my favorite recipes.
