Pumpkin Pie Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
This was really good! I only have one loaf pan, so I halved the recipe. The only change I made was using brown sugar in place of some of the white sugar. Oh, and I snuck in a little extra pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. It turned out super moist and dense and flavorful. Perfect for these chilly Autumn days. :-) Thanks Tanja!

Chicken a la Creme

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
This was incredibly delicious for something so quick and simple! I used two smaller chicken breasts instead of the tenderloins, and I added a bit of parmesan cheese and some garlic powder to the cream. I served the sauce over the chicken on a bed of brown rice and broccoli - it was delicious! My husband and I all but licked our plates clean. If you're serving more than two or three people, I'd suggest doubling the sauce. Yes, it's that yummy. :-) Thanks, Patty!

Quick and Easy Chicken, Broccoli and Brown Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
In order to avoid undercooked rice, I changed up the preparation a little - I cooked the rice in chicken broth before adding it to the soup mixture in my skillet. I should have pre-cooked the broccoli too - it took a while to cook through in the sauce mixture. I used a little bit of chicken broth instead of water in the sauce mix, and I seasoned the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and garlic powder before cooking in garlic-infused olive oil (yum!). The overall result was pretty good. I'd do this again because it certainly was quick & easy, but I'll have to play around with the prep a little more.

Yankee-Doodle Sirloin Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2011
I agree with another reviewer: I wouldn't waste this wonderful marinade on a sirloin roast. I'd use it for a better and smaller cut of meat. It honestly just tasted like regular pot roast to me - and I even marinated it for almost two whole days hoping the flavors would penetrate more. Maybe it's because I made it in the crock pot instead of the oven? I didn't think it would make too much of a difference...oh well.

Marshmallow Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
Delicious! These were soft, gooey, moist, sweet, and so yummy. The butterscotch flavor wasn't too overwhelming and the marshmallows added that extra sticky sweet touch. I took a shortcut by microwaving the butterscotch chips and the butter in my mixing bowl rather than on the stove. I had a hard time combining them that way, but they ended up melting and combined with the dry ingredients just fine. I would definitely make these again!

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
Absolutely delicious! I made fresh breadcrumbs in my food processor and pulsed in the parmesan. The only change I made was adding some Italian seasonings, salt, and pepper to jazz up the breadcrumbs. I baked two lean breasts at 400 for 30 minutes and they were perfect. The breading was so delicious and perfectly golden. The chicken, despite being very lean, turned out extremely tender and juicy. It didn't taste greasy at all. This recipe is DEFINITELY a keeper! Thanks Carol!

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
This was good, but not great. I added a little nutmeg and extra vanilla, and I subbed brown sugar for white. The flavor was good, but it turned out dense and kind of soggy in the middle. I was only able to get 8 pieces of regular toast. If I try this recipe again, I will use thicker bread and just dip it in the batter instead of soaking it.

Jennie's Heavenly Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
Yummy! This was excellent. Couldn't find chive cream cheese, so I cooked onions and garlic in the butter before adding the salad dressing mix. Didn't have any wine, so I used a whole can of chicken broth. I poured the sauce over six chicken breast halves and still ended up with plenty of sauce to be had. I let it cook for about 8 hours on low. It was delicious and the chicken fell apart in your mouth. I served over rice and the sauce with it was fantastic! I'll try pasta next time. My husband cleaned his plate twice. You HAVE to try this recipe - you won't be disappointed!

Chili Con Queso Dip II

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
This was yummy! I just threw the cheese and chili together into a glass bowl and microwaved and stirred it in cycles until the cheese was completely melted. The only thing is that it develops a skin quickly after it sits out. I think this would probably be best served in a dip crock or warmer and that might fix that problem. Also, I halved the recipe, and it made a ton. I can't imagine how much 2 lbs of cheese would have yielded! I served with scoop chips, which worked perfectly.

Breaded Center Cut Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2010
My fiancee gave this rave reviews. He loved the breading. I only had plain bread crumbs and used garlic pepper seasoning instead of lemon pepper. I halved the recipe for 3 chops, but I also double-breaded each of them, so I had about the right amount of breading. I had way too much flour left over though, so don't use as much of that. These didn't come out as moist - maybe because they were in the oven too long? And when we were cutting into them, the breading kept slipping off the chops. My fiancee liked that, but I didn't. I would definitely use this recipe again because of my fiancee, but I'll probably try cooking them a little differently to improve the moisture.

Sweet Polish Sausage

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
This was pretty yummy. We used a pre-cooked polish sausage, so we only needed to boil it for about 10 minutes. The sausage came out super tender and juicy. We served it over rice. My fiancee thought it was a tad bit too sweet for polish sausage, but I thought the sweetness was nice and subtle when paired with the flavor of the Worcestershire sauce.

Hash Brown Casserole II

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
This was truly yummy with a couple small changes: I used cream of potato soup instead of cream of chicken, used seasoned salt instead of plain salt, and added an additional cup of corn flakes on top. Could have used a bit more salt though. Beware: this recipe makes a HUGE casserole! It was filled to the brim of my largest mixing bowl, so it was a little hard to combine the ingredients well enough, but I managed. We ended up with enough for three different meals. By the way, it reheats very well.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
This was really good! Cooked it on high for about 6 hours and no burning at all. We substituted 1/2 cup of beef broth with red wine, but I think it needs a little more flavor in general, maybe some more spices. I ended up having to add salt. I served it with place-and-bake crescents and they were awesome with the gravy. Overall, good comfort food for a chilly autumn day.

Pecan Pie Bars II

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
These were delicious. Made them exactly as directed. Brought them to work and everyone gobbled them up and complimented me incessantly. A few tips: 1. Grease your pan really well - sides and bottom. 2. Pat the dough into the pan with a rubber spatula - it doesn't stick to the dough. 3. Let the cake part cool for at least 10-15 minutes before pouring on the gooey mixture. 3. When you take it out of the oven, the middle will still be liquidy. You cannot serve immediately. If you let it cool overnight, it'll be a little more solid (still gooey) and ready to cut in the morning. Wonderful Autumn treat. Thanks!

Green Grog

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
This was yummy! So easy to put together and fun-looking! Everyone who tried it loved it and all the reviewers are right - you can't taste the rum at all.

Pumpkin Spiced and Iced Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
These were so moist and soft and yummy! The chocolate chips and pumpkin complimented each other nicely! They almost have the consistency of a muffin....wonderful! I substituted half of the white sugar for brown sugar and omitted the nuts. I didn't have time to make the icing and they were still really tasty! Watch out - they barely spread at all in the oven, so don't make them too tall.

Chunky Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
Oh. My. God. Sooooo good. Perfect comfort food for the first cool day of the season. I've never made soup from scratch before and this was easier than I expected. Took a little while, but totally worth it. Reheats well too!

Cheddar Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
These were amazing and super easy! I only had pancake and waffle mix on hand, not all-purpose baking mix, and I was so surprised at how great they still tasted. I can only imagine how awesome they will be when I use the proper ingredient! I used fancy shredded cheese instead of regular, which I think helped the consistency. Can't wait to make these again!

Coconut Cream Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
My fiancee, the coconut lover, gives this five stars. This turned out beautiful: incredibly moist with a lovely light coconut flavor, but not too sweet. It baked perfectly in the oven in 30 minutes. I also had the dillema of not being able to find coconut cream, so I mixed together half a can of the sweetened condensed milk and a full can of coconut milk for the cream, and I made sure I only poked holes halfway through the cake. It took me a long time to whip the cream to the right consistency, but the end result was worth it. Added a bit of coconut extract to it and only half the sugar. I made it on a Wednesday night and it sat in the refrigerator until Friday night when I made the frosting, so everyone is right about it being better eating it cold and after letting it sit for a day or two before eating. Thanks for the great recipe!

5-Minute Guacamole

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
Fantastic guac! I like it smooth and simple and this was perfect. The only change I made was adding some lime juice. This will be my go-to guac recipe from now on! Thanks!!! Tip: if you add a dollop of sour cream into the mix, it keeps it from going brown.
