Portuguese Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
I personally did not care for the ketchup, even though I only used 1 cup instead of 2. Maybe if I didnt know it was in there, I might've liked it better. Hubby didnt know and liked the soup very much! I used apple cider vinegar and I'd recommend using that. Makes a LOT of soup. Next time I'll use a bigger pot.

Peanut Butter Vegetable Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
This is a wonderful & welcome change from the usual chicken & vegetable soup. The pb adds a very subtle, sophisticated flavor. To quote my husband, "this is as good as soup gets." He did not know there was pb in it, and still loved it after I told him. I used Adams natural pb (creamy, but I bet chunky would be great!) The only change I made was no salt. It didn't need it. Thanks for a great recipe!

Home-Made Cream of Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
I was very excited to make my own cream of chicken soup for other recipes because I prefer to not buy canned foods. I took other reviewers' advice and used 2 cups of milk w/ 2 cups of chicken stock. I omitted the sugar, garlic powder & salt; added chopped parsley for color. It turned out great. FYI: This recipe makes the equivalent of about 4 cans. I put some in a jar to give to friend as a gift.

American Girl's Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
Highly recommend! Made this because I had the ingredients on hand. Substituted fresh peaches for canned, used Whole Wheat flour and added nutmeg. Cut the sugar in half and was perfect. Like other reviewers, baking time was much longer in my glass pan. Very good! DH loved it!!

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
I chose this recipe because it looked easy, healthy and I had all the ingredients on hand. Husband gave it 5 stars but I gave it 4. I think this is a good standard recipe, but I'll probably try another the next time I'm looking for wow factor.

Mushroom Slow Cooker Roast Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
Husband and I gave this 4 stars, but only because I made adjustments that didn't work. I don't normally buy packaged foods, so I made the onion soup mix (a recipe on another website)from scratch using beef bouillon granules, dried minced onion, garlic powder, and pepper. I used no salt in the total recipe, but the bouillon still made the pot roast too salty for our taste. Maybe this wouldnt have happened if I had used Lipton's. Otherwise, this was delicious with the mushrooms and beer. I used a bottle of Anchor Steam which gave it exceptional taste, and served with roasted red potatoes and fresh green beans. Yum.

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
5 stars = The Best! I get cravings for this soup at least once a week, I can bribe husband to cross off his honey-do list with this soup! I make as is with no adjustments, except I double, even triple the recipe!!

Fluffy White Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
I didn't care for the flavor, thought it tasted eggy, so I added just a pinch invisible strawberry-kiwi koolaid mix. I did follow all the advice, let the sugar mixure cook to "soft thread" stage and beat the egg white to firmer than soft peaks. I beat it with a hand mixer on high for at least 10 minutes, but it never quite set up. However, the glossy sheen worked on the racecar cake I decorated. Will try again.

My Favorite Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
I thought this was a very nice dough that resulted in a delicate flavored cookie. I followed other reviewer advice and used 3 cups of flour. Also, I mixed in the order of traditional cookie recipes. I used plain yogurt in place of milk and almond extract in place of vanilla. I also mixed in the zest of one lemon. Thanks for the recipe!

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies I

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
I gave these 4 stars because I think they have a great flavor and would probably have a better texture had I followed the recipe to the letter. I was wanting to make a healthy cookie, so I made the following changes: 1c. whole wheat flour & 1/2c. all-purpose. For sweetness I used 1/3c. brown sugar, 1/3c.sucanat & 1/3c. honey. Added 1 tsp. cinnamon, increased raisins to 1c. and omitted chocolate chips & nuts. The dropped cookies of the 1st batch didn't spread out when baked, so I pushed them down with the back of a spoon for the remaining batches, but that made them too crumbly. The 1st batch actually held together better. I will try this again!

Beer Batter Fish Made Great

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
We made this with sturgeon caught yesterday. It was awesome! I did not read the reviews first and followed the recipe exactly except using egg substitute. The flavor and texture is perfect. Next time I will dredge the fish with flour first to get the batter to stick better and use a little less salt, just because it didn't need it. Thanks!!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
The texture and flavor of these are fantastic! The only problem I had was that I used my little 1-oz scoop -I use for all my cookies- these didn't spread out all, but remained tasty little cookie balls. Still very good, though. Next time I will add a pinch of salt, as some reviewers suggested.

Michael's Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
I dont know what I did wrong, but this turned out really spicy. My husband loved it, but it was too hot for me. I used the vinegar as called for and added garlic powder and honey. I cooked the sauce down for about 30 minutes until it was almost syrupy. The texture and color is beautiful, but next time I'll reduce the cayenne & chili sauce. Served with steamed white rice.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
This was great! So easy and turned out delicious. I used Newcastle Ale and Lawry's taco seasoning. Didn't alter a thing. Will be one of my staple recipes. Thank you! UPDATE: I've made this several more times using the seasoning blend recipe. It just keeps getting better!

Sweet-and-Sour Coleslaw

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
I used 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon of stevia. It was too spicy for me with the jalapeno. My husband like the spiciness, but thought it was too sweet. Was great for taking on a picnic, though. Held up all day! Thanks!

Amish Slaw

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
This was yummy. I cut way back on the sugar and used apple cider vinegar. I used shredded cole slaw mix, but next time I am going to use chunkier chopped cabbage.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
I made this twice. The first time following the recipe's measurements (except I used all fresh veggies). The 2nd time, I made 2 9-inch shells, doubled the veggies, but kept the egg mixture the same and made 2 quiches. We all liked it much better. This is 1st time I've used soft cheese in a quiche and it was great!

The Best Meatballs You'll Ever Have

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
I liked this meatball recipe very much. I increased the portions and used half ground pork, half ground beef. I also didn't use the red pepper flakes this time because I was making them for a large party, thought I'd err on the side caution. They turned out well and got a few compliments. Thanks!
