Breaded Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2003
I've made these twice now, and tonight I slightly altered the recipe. I used regular milk instead of buttermilk and added 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice. I also made 1 1/2 times the bread crumb mixture. Then I poured off the milk mixture into a separate bowl, dipped the chicken strips in the bread crumb mixture, back into the milk and then back into the bread crumbs, and finally into the oil. This made a nice thick crust on the chicken fingers.

Cornbread Muffins I

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2002
These are very tasty corn muffins, and my daughter's favorite! I used freshly ground corn and soft wheat, making them come out a little more dense, but delicious and hearty. I also subsituted canned for frozen corn with great results. The recipe takes exactly one regular sized can of corn. This is definitely a keeper.

Russian Tea

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2006
This is the age old recipe I grew up with. It is a staple at our house, especially around cold and flu season as the cloves in the mixture, soothe sore throats. Instead of the 3 oz. package of lemondade, we just use the smaller .23 ounce sugarless lemonde mix.

Cheese Quesadillas

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2006
Boy these are quick and easy! I brushed melted butter on the outsides of the tortillas and then put them under the broiler. Keep your eyes on them because they're done in a flash! I served these for supper with taco salad.

Chocolate Oil Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2006
This is a good basic chocolate cake. It's easy to put together with ingredients usually on hand. I frosted my cake with a jumbo Hershey's bar. I broke it into sections and placed evenly over the hot cake and allowed it to melt. Then I smoothed it over the entire cake.

Mocha Punch

Reviewed: May 3, 2008
This was delicious. I used a combination of vanilla and chocolate ice cream. Make sure you combine ingredients about 30 minutes ahead of serving so the ice cream has a chance to melt a little. Also, try not to use big scoops of ice cream. It makes it a little difficult to serve.

Chocolate Revel Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2002
These were delicious. I took them to an outing and everyone loved them. I did make one mistake that ended up making them taste even better. I accidentally put about 1/4 cup of the sweetened condensed milk in the cookie layer part. It ended up making them very chewy and good. I'll probably make this mistake again!

Chocolate Sheet Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
This is a very good, easy recipe. May I strongly recommend that you use butter and not margarine. Also, for the frosting, you don't need to measure the 3/4 cup of sweetened condensed milk. Just go ahead and use the rest of the can. I'd like to try it again without the cinnamon.

Betsy's Poppy Seed Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
This is a favorite in our family. I have made it numerous times, always with superb results. The crunchy poppy seeds and the cracker topping make this a real winner. So easy and so good!

Seafood Chowder

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
I wish I could give this 4.5 stars. It is a very good, easy recipe. Like another reviewer I added more potatoes. I also cooked the whitefish in the soup at the end. Next time I'm going to be sure to use only organic, cream based soups as the "name brand" soups have msg in them. It was quite easy, and very good.

GrannyLin's Barbeque Ribs Made Easy

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Really, really good. I was going to finish them off on the grill, but it rained. So even right out of the crockpot they were delicious. And truly, you couldn't get any easier.

No-Mayonnaise Ranch Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
I think this is very good. Just as good as the famous Ranch on the grocery store shelves. The best part is no MSG. Did you know every creamy grocery item on the shelves has MSG. Do you have headaches? It very well may be MSG. I avoid all msg products like the plague.

Cranberry Swirl Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2003
This is a very good coffee cake that makes a beautiful presentation. I baked it in a rose shaped bundt pan and sprinkled it with powdered sugar.

Rocky Mountain Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2002
My family loved this recipe. It tastes very similar to a famous brand of canned stew, but improved because it isn't as greasy. I made a few changes: just dumped the ingredients in a crockpot and cooked it all day, omitted the oil, flour and peas. It came out thick and tasty!

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2002
This is a delicious, tender, sweet cornbread. I made it into muffins and used freshly ground corn. They came out perfect...a little crispy on the outside and tender and moist on the inside. They are lighter in texture than other cornbread muffins I have tried.

Moroccan Meat Cigars

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
I made these tonight for dinner and followed the recipe exactly. My husband and I both thought they were a little bland. This isn't a difficult recipe and I think worth another try. Next time I will add salt and include a dipping sauce of some type. Surprisingly with the variety of spices, the "cigar" itself is bland. I also think brushing the phyllo with butter would add more flavor.

Beer Batter for Fish

Reviewed: May 11, 2004
This batter was very close to a famous fast food seafood restaurant chain. I did make a few alterations. I added seasoned salt to taste and about 1/4 cup of sugar. I also ended up using the whole can of beer. I patted the fish dry and had great success with the batter staying on the fish. I was able to fry 6 pieces of fish and had plenty of batter left over for onion rings which I dredged first in flour, then the batter. The onion rings in this batter were the best I've ever had anywhere.

Buttery Pan Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2003
These were just so so. They didn't have the rich buttery taste I expected, nor were they very tender.

Ultimate Double Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2002
This truly is a chocolate lovers cookie! It held its shape beautifully. I rolled the dough into balls and froze them. They cooked up beautifully in about 10 minutes. My whole family loved them!
