Paula's Bread Sticks

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
These couldn't have been better. I halved the recipe but kept it the same otherwise. I threw the ingredients in my bread machine, took out the dough when it was done, rolled it out and cut the sticks with a pizza cutter, as someone else suggested. I twisted them lightly so they were prettier and let them rest for a few minutes before baking, but I don't know if that was necessary. I baked them for 10 minutes, taking them out just as the tops were starting to brown. They rose perfectly. Then, I brushed them with melted butter and sprinkled them with Parmesan cheese and garlic salt. They were so soft and delicious and were amazingly quick and easy to make! I know I'll be making them again frequently. Thanks, Paula for the keeper!

Polish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
Wow, this soup was delicious! My husband said it was even better than his famous chicken noodle soup recipe. I've never made Chicken and Dumplings before, so I wasn't sure to expect and a little nervous about the dumplings. But, I thought homemade, noodle-like dumplings sounded much better than biscuit dough, and boy, were they! I followed the recipe exactly except for a few small changes, based on other reviews. I used chicken broth instead of water, for the dumplings, and I ended up adding almost an extra cup of flour to the dumplings. I had read that dumpling batter needs to be sticky, stickier than bread dough, even, but mine was very runny without the extra flour, and too difficult to cut into the soup. Even still, that was a bit messy and time consuming. But, very much worth it! The dumplings turned out so much better than I expected. Some of them were still too large, so I cut them in half in the pot after they cooked. I also added about a cup of sour cream to thicken up the soup even more. I was worried about it being overly seasoned at first, but it wasn't at all. The broth was very good, although I did a bit of celery salt, paprika and parsley. I think it's key to add enough water, so use a big pot and fill it up. And, do add the chicken after the dumplings have cooked, so there's more room in the pot. I reversed those, and I should have paid more attention. The dumpling mix makes a lot of dumplings, too many really. This was total comfort food. Excellent recipe.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
This soup was delicious! I did make some small changes, but even without those, I think it would have been wonderful. I added about 1/2 cup of carrots, because my family likes those. Incidentally, I also used about 4 cups of potatoes, instead of 3-1/2, simply because I accidentally chopped too many. But, I didn't add any extra liquid, and it was the perfect consistency. I also added a handful of shredded cheese to the white sauce, and instead of using 2 cups of milk, I used 1 cup milk and 1 cup half and half. Wow! It was so tasty! I will definitely be making this often.

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
These tasted great. My husband loved them so much he wanted another batch made after we finished the first. I followed the recipe exactly, except for a few changes. I left out the nuts since I didn't have any on hand and I sprinkled the chocolate chips throughout the batter, as well as on top. I used milk chocoate chips instead of semi-sweet, and they turned out fine - not too sweet, like I feared. I also doubled the recipe, which made it fit perfectly in a 9x13 dish. The only reason I don't give this recipe 5 stars is because they were pretty gooey the first day. They still tasted yummy, but they were much more manageable on the second day. I think if I was serving these to other people, I'd actually bake them the night before.

Watergate Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
This salad is so easy to make and it tastes incredible. My son loves it, and it's also perfect for church potlucks and funerals. I always leave the nuts out.
