Chicken Stew 'Fricot'

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
Very good. I skinned the chicken before browning, substituted seasoned garlic salt and dried parsley for summer savory, and chicken broth in place of water. Also thickened up the broth with a flour/water paste before serving. Tasty.

Pumpkin Date Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
Mmmmmm good! Only made two changes--an extra tsp of cinnamon in the batter and two cups of chopped dates (just like them). Smells heavenly, too!

Praline Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
Very good. Followed the suggestion of underbaking the cake before topping with the praline mixture and it came out perfect.

Spiced Tea Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
This is so good! I received it as a gift and had to make some of my own. I keep a tin at work, and it's been wonderful to have a hot cup at my desk on those cold wintery days.

Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
Let's face it--it's all in the broth when you're ready to serve. I simmered in beef broth, added extra garlic, almost all the seasonings others had suggested (celery, a little cumin, basil), and it turned out "biscuit-soppin'" good.

Frozen Pineapple Pie

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
Quick, easy recipe. I used grated lemon peel and beat 8 oz cream cheese with the sw. condensed milk as others suggested before adding the whipped topping and it was delicious. I used the "Easy Pie Crust" recipe on this site and it made a wonderful hot weather dessert.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
This is delicious! I modified according to other suggestions by adding a handful of cheddar, but won't do it next time because it really doesn't need it; besides, the cheddar tends to separate from the rest of the creamier ingredients. Very, very good!

Next time I will double the recipe (just as it is). These disappear in a hurry. Delicious!

Quick Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
My homemade biscuit attempts over the years have usually resulted in substitutes for hockey pucks---not these! Very tender. I added a tsp of sugar and a little extra cream as it seemed too dry, also kneaded only five or six times. Very good.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
Not a fan of the dumplings, but the chicken was very good. I may try it again with a different dumpling recipe.

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
A bit too sweet and artificial tasting for me. Husband didn't care for it, either. I had leftovers I eventually threw away.

Oven Fresh Seasoned Potato Wedges

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
Uncomplicated and very good, this recipe is a good alternative to a baked potato. I've made this recipe a number of times, and don't change a thing.

Date Drop Cookies I

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
I baked these cookies for my Grandma's 102nd birthday--she loves dates. Following instructions exactly, I thought the cookies were a little bland. So I sprinkled subsequent batches with a sugar/cinnamon mixture before baking and they were very good. Next time I'll use more dates and nuts. (Have to admit that the first thing I reached for all week when I walked in the door from work was one of these cookies. They stay soft to the last crumb!) And Grandma loved them, too.

Oreo™ Cookie Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2014
It's sheer simplicity. and who doesn't like Oreos? I only had a small sample before packaging it all up for gifts, but it was really tasty, and oh so quick to prepare. Very easy. I did spread it thin and there were some holes, but it broke into pieces easily. (Just got feedback from the recipients--this one's a winner!)

Sweet Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2014
I am not a big pasta salad fan, but my husband is and he liked it very much--I quite liked it too! I left out the cup of sugar and found it to be plenty sweet enough and very tasty. Took a big bowl to a company luncheon and two of the GUYS liked it so much they requested the recipe (a GUY?--never happened before). So I believe it deserves a true five-star review!

Pecan Pie Bars I

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2014
Prepared these exactly according to the recipe and they are addictive. Made them at Christmas instead of pecan pie; servings were smaller than a slice of pie and perfect for sampling when there are so many dessert choices. Perfect as written, wouldn't change a single ingredient.
