Chicken Lasagna with White Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2013
After reading a couple of reviews I changed the recipe slightly: 1 cup of whole milk, 15oz whole milk ricotta, sauteed chicken breast with onions and minced garlic, added salt pepper to sautee and to sauce. I also precooked the "oven ready" noodles because my husband HATES hard noodles. The lasagna is now warming up the trash barrel and I'm hanging my head in shame. It was practically flavorless even with the addition of onions and minced garlic! My kitchen was almost devoid of dinner aroma. The icing on the cake - it was so soupy that it was almost impossible to eat with a fork. I don't know what to recommend for a firmer end result other than precook the noodles and omit milk and canned soup entirely.

Bloody Broken Glass Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2013
I made these for my husband's birthday. He was floored! Awesome. The only thing I would suggest would be to omit the blue coloring in the blood if you use professional food coloring gel, a squeeze of red should do it. Also, adding a little of blue or green to the glass would make it look more authentic.

Real Homemade Bagels

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2013
Very easy to follow recipe. Dough took more than 30 minutes to knead with my KitchenAid stand mixer but I didn't have bread flour on hand, only regular flour which may have been the culprit. I also substituted coconut oil for vegetable oil which I do for all my recipes. I baked them on no-stick Reynold's Wrap since my parchment paper is only rated for a max temp of 350. I also didn't bring water to a rolling boil, just a rapid simmer; from previous experience, the rolling boil splashes up too much and disfigures the unboiled side of the bagels. I will definitely use this recipe again!

Crisp Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2013
I used coconut oil instead of shortning (I NEVER use shortning or vegetable oil, always butter, lard or coconut oil). They turned out okay but they are so flat. There's absolutely no body to them. Maybe the dough needs to be refrigerated? Maybe they need more oats? More flour? Thankfully my husband loves flat, overcooked crisp cookies. ;)

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
My husband LOVED the honey mustard flavor and asked for a version of the sauce for dipping the very next night. Excellent.

Chicken and Cheese Crescents

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
Thank goodness my husband is the sweetest, most gracious man alive! This was not good. The soup prevented the crescents from cooking on the bottom making a big, hot, raw soupy dough MESS. If I dare try this again [BIG IF] I will take the advice of another user and cook the crescents with the chicken before adding any sauce on top.

Boiled Bagels

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
I have made close to 30 batches using this recipe and LOVE them! I started using the broil-then-boil-then-bake technique but found that boiling-then-baking turns out much better. I make 8 extra large bagels per batch (my husband likes to use them for sandwiches), add gluten and even a little pinch extra of active yeast per batch. A bread baking tip in case you were a novice like myself, make sure you allow the bagels to rise in a VERY warm environment. I read that turning on an oven to 300 degrees for a minute or so will make a perfect environment for bread rising (80-90 degrees); it will make your bagels MUCH bigger!

Alice Chicken

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
Excellent recipe! I omitted the mushrooms, substituted turkey bacon and broiled on low for 10 mins each side to accomodate my boyfriend's particular tastes. He LOVED it and after finishing everything on his plate, asked if there was more!

Absolutely the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2001
My measurements were inaccurate, I mixed everything togeather, butter took the place of shortning and I'm NOT the domestic type. Despite all odds against me the cookies turned out great. Crispy outside, chewy inside. I placed MOUNDING tablespoons on the ungreased cookie sheet and baked them for 15 minutes. A couple of these cookies are as good as it gets while my boyfriend is out of town!
