Caramel Banana Cake Roll

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
I hardly know how to do a recipe EXACTLY how it says, because I always have to adjust according to the ingredients I actually have--and to taste. The changes I made were fairly irrelevant: doubled the banana and did not use the lemon peel (didn't have any). Used about a 1/4 tsp cinnamon instead. For filling, I doubled cream cheese instead of using cr. cheese+cool whip. I got some raves on it and loved it myself, even when I am no keen fan of banana anything.

Oven Fried Chicken III

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
I skipped the thyme but used all the other seasonings. My children don't think I can make good fried chicken, but they loved this recipe! I never buy mayo but had Miracle Whip so I dumped about a cup in a big pan, whisked it with milk to a less "gloppy" consistency, then coated each piece of chicken. I let them "marinate" like that in the same pan for about an hour. I then rolled them in the seasoned breadcrumbs and baked for 1 hr 20 min @375. The coating was crispy & delicious and the chicken was juicy and moist. I will be relying on this recipe for the future. (I made 9lbs of chicken pieces so I tripled the recipe for crumbs, salt & paprika but only doubled the garlic and black pepper. For the garlic powder I used 1 tsp garlic powder & 1 tsp onion powder since I prefer the milder flavor of onion.)

got an enthusiastic thumbs up from my kids who ate them 5 minutes out of the oven. The only change I made was using regular salt instead of kosher. This was super easy and quick to make and with 6 kids hungry all the time, it will be nice to make these in about 30 minutes.

Thanksgiving Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
For those of us in this house who like onion/green pepper, this was a fabulous dish! The flavor and texture are wonderful, especially the crispy edges! Not having creamed corn, I pureed a can of whole corn, drained, and I doubt it made much flavor/texture difference. I will be making this dish again.

Cranberry Salad II

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
I loved this recipe and will make it for future Thanksgiving feasts. This is how I adjusted it: I used 2 clementines in place of the orange (that was all I had). I used 3/4 of a fuji apple in place of the celery and walnuts. I used 3/4 c. sugar and cranberry gelatin (I am not sure you would need any extra sugar at all. I will experiment). I shared some of this with a bachelor friend who REALLY liked it. My children weren't crazy about it. Now I get to eat it ALL. Yum.

Cream of Broccoli Soup III

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
I used this recipe as a guide, because I needed to make my soup bigger for a big family, and adjust it for taste and ingredients on hand. My soup turned out so good all 5 of my older children ate it right up! I prefer smaller pieces of carrot so I shredded them (I used about 4 small) and then began sauteeing them in 1/4 c. butter while I chopped the (green) onion, garlic, and celery. After adding them, I poured in 4 c. potato water (reserved from the day before cause I hate wasting vegetable water!) and then added 1 TBSP chicken buillion. Added 3 small potatoes diced small along with about 6 c. chopped broccoli (including stem) and let it simmer for 20 minutes. I did not puree--just made sure everything was chopped tiny. I used 3/4 c. cream, 2 c. half/half, 1 1/4 c 2% milk. Heated that slowly and threw in a couple handfuls of shredded cheese. I sprinkled seasoned salt and black pepper lightly over top then stirred it all up. Even my pickiest eaters loved it. I have found THE recipe I needed. Thanks!

Beef Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2013
This has become a favorite in my family. The first time I made it I made it close as I could to "as written" and it was fabulous. Since then, I follow it "loosely" (tonight I didn't have sherry but I did have cooking red wine so I used that) and we enjoy it with whatever ingredients I have on hand. Highly recommend!

Monkey Bread V

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
I like monkey bread but not this recipe. I would change it to rolling the bolls in melted butter first, then the cinnamon/sugar mix. And then pour the remainder of the mix on top with no added extra white sugar. This recipe was both too sweet and too buttery.
