Beefy Chinese Dumplings

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
These were awesome!!! One thing I noticed was, you should wait till the water is boiling to drop the dumplings in, so they take a solid shape and don't fall apart. The first half of my batch of dumplings broke apart because I put them in before the water had boiled. This dish was delish!!

Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
Delicious! Got an 8lb spiral cut honey cured bone-in ham, covered the bottom in brown sugar, covered the ham in brown sugar, as per the instructions. Added a can of pineapple slices all over the ham, poured in the remaining pineapple juice, set the crockpot to low for 4 hours. Alas, bone-in made it impossible to cover in my slow cooker, so I followed someone else's advice and just covered the whole thing in foil for the duration of the cook. When the ham was done, I threw some maraschino cherries on top and called it done. It was beautiful, smelled wonderful, TASTED fantastic, didn't take up any room in my already full oven, and served as a great last minute addition to our Thanksgiving feast! Will definitely make it again next year!

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2013
Finally succeeded in making bread! The first time I followed this, the bread was great except for an unfortunate raw spot in the top that just wouldn't cook away. After reading a few reviews, this was what I did. Followed the recipe, except I made buttermilk from milk and lemon juice. Combined all ingredients, kneaded in a large handful of raisins, and set on a floured pizza stone. Cooked at 350 degrees for an hour, took it out half an hour in and braised with milk and butter and returned it to the oven for the remaining half hour. After it hour was up, I took it out and immediately wrapped it in foil and a dish towel in room temperature, until it cooled. It cooked completely through and is moist, fluffy, and delicious. Win!

Easy Pork and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
I made this for my husband's birthday. This is a HUGE hit!!! Exchanged the pork roast for bratwurst sausages, that I cut up into 1 inch chunks. Also, couldn't find dry mustard, used a few squirts of regular mustard. This came out delicious, and everyone kept going back for more. I will definitely make this again!

Beef Stew V

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
We were snowed in when we made this, so we just pulled together what we had. We added a little extra red wine and a bay leaf in the beginning, didn't have any celery or pearl onions. We ran out of flour after working on the meat, so we thickened the stew with bread crumbs and half and half milk. Also, after adding the vegetables, we only cooked an additional 45 minutes. The vegetables retained a slight outer firmness but were soft inside, the beef was tender and absorbed a wonderful flavor, the stew was rich and delicious. We enjoyed it with sweet Challah bread, and will DEFINITELY make it again! UPDATE: Made this again and had to make a few small changes. Being pregnant, I decided to avoid using the wine, so I replaced with 1 more cup of water and 1 more beef bouillion. Also doubled the garlic, and unfortunately forgot to pick up pearl onions for this. Had to cook an extra 5 minutes to soften the potatoes a little more. YUM!! This came out absolutely DELICIOUS and will continue to be a repeat, with and without wine.

Orange Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
This came out GREAT! Changed things a bit according to other people's reviews. I covered the carrots in orange juice and set them to boil. Meanwhile, made the brown sugar melted butter glaze, and added a pinch of nutmeg and a little cinnamon. Once the carrots had boiled and became tender, we combined the orange juice carrots and the glaze. Realized the glaze was too liquidy, so we put it back on the stove and thickened it with some flour and water. Got the glaze to a nice syrupy consistency, covered the carrots, powdered the whole dish with a little additional cinnamon. Served and was a big hit. It was delicious, and we'll make this again next Thanksgiving!

Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
I used every bit of left over in my fridge to make this soup in an effort not to leave the house. Lemon Garlic and Herb Shake and Bake chicken, potatoes and carrots from the Guinness Corned Beef recipe I found on this site, some fresh celery, and some left over spaghetti. Best soup I've ever made!!!

Miso Soup

While the ingredients were a little difficult to find, this miso soup recipe was absolutely delicious! As though I had bought it in a store ready made. It was wonderful!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2014
This came out great. I used ground chicken, and put a little milk into the meat mix and it was moist and delicious. I ended up just throwing the ground meat right into the sauce without forming the meatballs. Mixed into spaghetti, this meal was delicious!

Apple and Brown Sugar Corned Beef

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
I've always gone to this recipe for corned beef. I've only ever made it in the crock pot though, and there wasn't any room for the vegetables and the meat wouldn't be completely covered. Now, I've tried this in a stock pot on the stove (40 min per lb) and doubled the broth ingredients. This was the best it ever came out, absolutely delicious and moist. I will never go back to the crock pot.

Irish Cream Creme Brulee

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
This recipe was delicious! Do try to caramelize the sugar with a blow torch, I followed someone's advice by putting these under a broiler, and it just didn't work out.

Miss Betty's Super Quick Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2013
I followed a few suggestions for making self-rising dough from (flour, baking powder, and salt). I also threw in some garlic powder into the mix, sprinkled fresh rosemary on top of the rolls, which I'd set on a greased cookie sheet, and glazed with melted butter. In a convection oven, I baked for about 20 minutes, until the fork I used to test with came out of one of the rolls clean. They came out moist, flaky, and delicious! Thank you for the great base recipe!

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2007
Looks like it would've been good, but like the other person said, dried thyme and rosemary will ruin this dish. I don't know how it was supposed to taste, I just know the dried spices drastically overpowered the vegetables. I'm willing to try it again though, it sounds like it would've been very good.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2014
Absolutely delicious, even with all the substitutions I made. Didn't have Dijon mustard, used Spicy Brown instead. Didn't have pecans, so I left them out. Didn't have fresh parsley, used dried instead. The sweet, tangy bread topping compliments a rich, buttery fish very nicely. I served with lemon basmati rice (recipe also found on this site), and steamed broccoli in salted butter. We'll definitely be making this again.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2014
Absolutely delicious! Hubby asked for me to make this again the next day. I followed the recipe to a tee, except I baked for 22 minutes in 400 degrees. The thighs came out perfectly cooked, moist, and the sauce is just too good!

Turkey Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2013
This was excellent! We changed a little to suit our tastes. Used about 6 medium Idaho potatoes, added milk and salted butter to taste until it was thick and creamy. For the meat mixture, we put in 2 carrots, 2 celery ribs, no mushrooms (hubby won't touch em), 1 tsp dried parsley, and about 3 cloves of garlic. Everything else was the same for ingredients. When cooking we also didn't drain the turkey meat once it was cooked because I was afraid of the layer becoming dry. We also covered the potato in a layer of a shredded blend of 4 italian cheeses, and baked for only 20 minutes. Came out DELICIOUS!! We'll definitely repeat it.

Ziti Chicken and Broccoli

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
Husband was found hastily licking the sauce from the pan, and exclaimed "this was terrible. Never make this again." So this will be a repeat. The amendments we made were we seasoned and baked chicken breasts for about 30 minutes in 400 degrees, used half and half instead of heavy cream, and went heavy on the garlic and parmesan. The sauce thickened beautifully once corn starch (mixed into a half cup of cool water to eliminate clumping) was added. Also we left out the artichoke hearts, and used 3 heads of broccoli. Next time, I'll use 4 heads of broccoli, only 4 chicken breasts will be enough, and make extra sauce. This was delicious!
