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.

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.

Italian Riboletta Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2010
I've made this a few times and my husband raves about it every time. I use leftover homemade bread to make croutons to put the on top on the soup followed by grated parm. I have yet to try the layering, I'm a little wary of the sogginess. Other than that, I follow the minestrone recipe exactly and its a wonderfully flavored meal!

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!

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.

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!!

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.

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!

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.

Fast and Friendly Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
I used crushed cheetos instead of bread crumbs because I was trying to get my kids to eat them. They loved them! I added a splash of beef broth and olive oil to the meat because I was worried they wouldn't be moist enough. They turned out awesome. Can't wait to make them again for the grown ups!

Four Egg Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
First of all, I'm giving it 5 stars because it's made from scratch and anything NOT out of a box with Betty's name is good in my book. 2nd, I really like this recipe. I followed advice and mixed very well in between ingredient additions. I made cupcakes with this batter and they rose very well, then flattened on top. Maybe non-risers have stale baking powder? Note: The cupcakes were very difficult to remove from the papers, next time I'll grease and flour instead.

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.

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!!

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2013
Not sure if I did something wrong, but this turned out very dry for me. The flavor was good, and I actually preferred the texture over a traditional gooey pecan pie. I could eat it while holding the pie piece, rather than with a fork, so it was more like a bar. Followed the cooking advice of other reviewers: start at 350, reducing to 300. Worked out great.

Italian Bread Bowls

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
I've made these a few times. The first time I realized that corn meal and egg white are a mess, so now I just bake on a silpat mat and brush with a light egg white wash. I dont care for the flavor of the bread, but the texture of the crust is good for cleaning out the "bowls" and for holding soup. I'll keep using this one until I find something better.

Butter Cream Frosting II

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
best and easiest frosting I've tried yet. Had to use a little extra vanilla to detract from the shortening taste, but that's very minor. Hardens when not kept covered.

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!

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!
