Turkey Breast with Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
Amazingly delicious! I made this for Sunday dinner today with my in-laws over, and it turned out perfectly! The seasoning rub and veggies in the cavity gave this so much flavor, and I cooked until my meat thermometer read 175- which was perfect. Very moist and yummy. The only thing I did not do was follow the directions for gravy. I have a foolproof gravy recipe I always use. Skim the fat off of the pan drippings, and then add them to a saucepan. Mix in a quarter cup of flour with a whisk until smooth, and then cook over medium-low heat until it turns into a thick roux. This happens fast, so don't walk away. Then add chicken broth a little at a time to your desired consistency. This always makes perfect gravy- no matter what type of roast you have made. I will definitely make this turkey again!

Red and Sweet Potato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
This is delicious! Now, I know some of you will hate this, but I did make a few changes, only because it is a cool fall day and I wanted this to taste like it! I changed the milk out for apple cider, used half mayo and half sour cream, and added a handful of dried craisins. Made it a bit different and very yummy! Basic recipe would have been a winner all on its own.

Dutch Potatoes

Delicious! I loved this and I can't wait to use the leftovers for pierogi filling, which it would be perfect for! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Chicken and Red Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
This was good, but not as good as I was hoping. I did take other reviewers' advice and I cut back the sugar and the wine a bit. The sauce was very yummy and my family loved it- especially my kids. It tastes a little bit like a teriyaki sauce because of the brown sugar. I don't know that the cooking method and time was quite right. I questioned it initially because it seemed long for chicken breasts, but then decided to follow the recipe and so I ended up with fairly dry chicken. If I do this again I will give the chicken a quick sear, then make the sauce and add the chicken back to the pan for a couple minutes.

Three Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2010
Very good- also got the kid seal of approval from my 5 and 8 year-olds! I used fresh beans from my garden, both green and yellow, so I blanched them for a few minutes in boiling water. I also threw the sliced onion in for about the last 30 seconds, just to soften them a bit, then I plunged all the veggies into an ice bath. I used celery salt rather than seed, and that was only because I discovered I was out of celery seed, and I also cut back on the sugar some (probably to about 1/2 cup). This was very good- my whole family enjoyed it.

Pork Tenderloin with Pineapple Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2010
I did not use the basting sauce for the meat with this, but instead grilled the pork tenderloin and then basted it with teriyaki sauce during the last couple minutes. I did, however, make the salsa, and it was soooooooo good! I will be making the salsa again and again, both with pork and just for a light summer snack. I know, I know, I gave it 5 stars and didn't follow the recipe exactly (and that drives everyone on here crazy), but this salsa is too good to pass up, and served over pork it was amazing!

Glazed Cinnamon Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
I made these this morning for breakfast and they received rave reviews from my family! So delicious! For those looking for a quick cinnamon roll recipe, you will be very pleased so long as you realize that these ARE biscuits, not true cinnamon rolls. The texture is a little bit different than your average cinnamon roll, but the flavor of these is delicious. Don't follow the reviewers who say to bake these at 350 rather than 450. Biscuits, which these are, should baked at very high heat as a rule. I followed this recipe to the letter and it came out wonderfully! Thanks for sharing these!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2009
De-lish recipe! I healthied things up by subbing some whole wheat flour, and by using oil in place of the butter in the batter, and added 1 t. vanilla. Yummy muffins!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
I never make white bread, as I am a health nut and usually prefer to make whole grain bread, but since I was making BLTs for dinner last night, I figured white bread would be nice for a change. It turned out very well and everyone enjoyed it. I made this completely by hand instead of using my mixer as I normally do, and I'm glad I did. I think making it by hand is what gives it the right texture. After all, the Amish do not use electric appliances. I used the full amount of sugar and unlike many reviewers I did not find it to be too sweet. In fact, it reminds me a great deal of Wegmans Farmhouse White bread from their bakery, which is a heartier white bread also. I will definitely make this again if white bread is ever required, and I see no need for changes!

Mexican-Style Taco Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
Very good! I made as is except used a can of chili beans instead of plain kidney beans. Topped our salads with tomatoes, olives, yellow peppers, and green onions, then served at the table with extra salsa and sour cream. I will definitely be making this again!

Tender Breaded Turkey Cutlets

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
The flavor of this was great, and I had no problems at all with my breading falling off or sticking. I did find them to be dry, hence only giving them 4 stars, but that is probably my own fault rather than that of the recipe.

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
Some of the reviews for this recipe surprise me, such as the last one. My bread rose perfectly and was as far from a "hockey puck" as you can get. It was light, delicious, and flavorful bread, and it doesn't matter to me whether or not traditional focaccia has milk or water if the recipe bakes up well. I've made a number of different focaccia breads, my usual being Michael's focaccia from this site, and this was a slightly quicker, and still VERY yummy alternative, perfect for a Friday after work to serve my family with homemade soup! I followed this to the letter, except added fresh rosemary and sea salt to the top of the bread.

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
I followed the recipe exactly, which I NEVER do, but did this time, since I was making this to put out for Bunco night, and gatherings like that require full-fat goodies. Well, they taste delicious, but I found them to be a bit dry, so next time I will use oil instead of butter and moisten them up a little more with some applesauce! Good recipe, just not the ultimate- Yet!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
This was delicious! Not the best cheesecake I have ever had (hence the four stars) but very very good regardless. I followed the recipe exactly and then topped the finished product with local raspberries my kids and I picked and a raspberry coulis I made from a few more of the berries! Took it to dinner at some friends' and it was a big hit!

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
All I can say is "Yum"! Our steak was delicious, tender, and so good! I changed only one thing, and that was adding some onion powder as well as the garlic. I highly reccommend this marinade!

Tangy Barbecue Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2009
This is a great sauce, and I've made it twice now and intend to make it my regular! Like others, I've added a couple of my own "secret ingredients", but the base sauce is amazing by itself also! Thanks Jenine for this sauce!

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
I've now made these twice and I absolutely love them! They taste a lot like the seasoned frozen ones I used to buy all the time- only BETTER! The seasonings are perfect and I didn't find the bake time too far off. If you cut your potatoes into nice thick wedges the way I like to, they do take almost 45 minutes. I shake the potatoes and seasonings in a plastic bag with the oil so it is all well coated, then pour out onto a baking sheet layered with parchment. This makes the taters bake up great with NO sticking! Great recipe!

Fiesta Stuffed Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
Delicious turkey burgers! Yum! I made as is except for adding one egg white to help moisten and bind all ingredients together, and I topped with the pepper jack cheese instead of stuffing them. Grilled outside on the gas grill, but laid down foil over the grate, since I've had lots of trouble with turkey burgers (especially moist ones) sticking before, even when sprayed with Pam. Perfect solution! I served these on homemade onion rolls (yum) with spicy ketchup! Will make these again for sure.
