The Perfect Cinnamon Roll Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
I love this simple recipe...my kids are lactose intolerant so I substituted the cream cheese with Tofutti cream cheese and used lactose free milk. I halved the recipe since I used it to frost the gingerbread cookies I made, which only makes about 16 cookies. (recipe on allrecipes...the roll out ones). Tasted delicious and so easy to make.

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
Loved it, easy, had everything on hand, we enjoyed for dinner, so the serving size of 6 was really hopeful, maybe for small servings like at a buffet...

Veal Marsala

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
Love the simplicity of this recipe. Since veal is so expensive, I usually make it a chicken marsala...and use any red wine that I have, not necessarily marsala. Always comes out great. I make this regularly and it is one of hubby's favorite

Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
Loved how easy these were to make and how delicious they were. Great roll out recipe. I made them to make in my daughter's preschool. Made 4 batches the night before and refrigerated. Came out fantastic. They do grow quite a bit unlike real gingerbread, but I am not a huge fan of molasses, these were fantastic. Got many many comments from the other parents about how good they were.

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
Delicious soup. Will make again. I did add carrots and celery and sauteed with the onion. I only used two small red potatoes as we are low carb. Next time I will use, as others have suggested, cauliflower to replace the potatoes but did not have any on hand. I used one sweet Italian sausage and 3 jimmy dean breakfast sausages, since that is all I had. The sausage gave this soup an extra depth that I never had when making a potato soup with just bacon.

Braised Skirt Steak with Artichoke

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
I made this almost as written. I did not have the pickled carrots, so I sliced some carrots and cooked in beef broth in the microwave until soft. I also used canned artichoke hears and canned jalapeno peppers, since that is what I had on hand. I was super excited to try this recipe, as I was trying to find something to make with the beef I had and the ingredients in my pantry that was different than the old stand by stroganoff or beef stew. While this was easy to make, I found it quiet sour and the boiled beef, eh. I am not sure the pickeled carrots would have improved the flavor, as the sourness from the capers and the artichokes was in of themselves, strong. I like that most of the time, but I did pair this with some green beans cooked with bacon and onions and that seems to help...maybe add some bacon??? I may make again, but not likely.

Frogmore Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
Delicious...I made just a few changes based on other reviews and personal taste. I added an onion, chopped celery, one clove of garlic, and 2 bay leaves to the boiling water. I used a polish keilbasa, as my kids do not like spicy food. Used half a beer while cooking. The corn was the absolute best! Will make again.

Cajun Crawfish and Shrimp Etouffe

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
A good dish. I didn't have any fish stock or anything to make my own...so I used the water drained from a can of tuna to get about 1/2 a cup and then used Veggie stock for the other 1/2 cup. Used Sirracha for our hot sauce....and I added Tofu, since we eat low carb. Turned out yummy. My 2 year old ate the tofu up..

Italian Chicken Sausage Risotto

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
I found this recipe to be a great change, I usually just make plain risotto...nothing fancy. Upon reading other reviews, some people had trouble with the consistency of the risotto. One thing I have learned in making risotto, is that you need to take it slow, add only about a cup of liquid at a time at a low simmer. When that cup is almost fully absorbed, taste and then add another...continue taste before adding more liquid to test the "doneness" (not a word I know) of the rice. Stir often, and add liquid until the rice is nice and soft. I think the only problem with this recipe is that for novice risotto makers, they may find themselves with mush or partially done rice. I basically followed the recipe...although I am not sure how much broth I ended up putting in, as like I said, I taste and add accordingly. I did use frozen peas and carrots, as I didn't have just the peas...used a cup of cooking sherry for the wine. I am sure this would be great with mushrooms added too. Hubby and Kids (2 & 4) loved it

Refreshing Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
I love the simplicity of this recipe. However, I suggest you peel the cucumbers and cube them and the tomatoes instead of slicing them. I make sure to chop the onion finely. I have made this into a pasta salad by adding red bell pepper, and pasta

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
I love this recipe. Like other's suggested, I placed a pan of water underneath. I love making fresh homemade bread, and I love that I made this for guests and they loved it. Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside with enough taste.

Grandma Covington's Cheese Apple Pie Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
Made as written. This crust is not my cup of tea. First, I did not like the texture of the cornmeal at all. It was crunchy, which I find odd in a pie crust. Second, it was difficult to keep together. I did what someone else suggested and refridgerated for over an hour and still it fell apart. I had to make a crosshatched pattern because one simply can not roll this dough out. I did push it down on the bottom of the pan. It browned nicely and fluffed up. Lastly, I did not like the taste. I think I would prefer something more buttery

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: May 14, 2010
This frosting is sooo good that I can't stop eating it. I want to make a bowl just to scoop and eat like ice cream. Gross I know. My daughter is lactose intolerant so I used the base of this recipe to also make this without real cream cheese using Toffutti Cream Cheese. Tastes just as good. Thanks sooo much. Now my DD wants cupcakes all the time. And it is easy to use to create.

Cake Mixes from Scratch and Variations

Reviewed: May 14, 2010
Love this recipe. Made the white cake for my hubby and daughter and they raved about it. I love that it would be a great recipe for me to use to cut and create a great cake for my daughter's birthday. It is sugary and sweet.

Lemon Velvet Chicken Rice Soup

Reviewed: May 14, 2010
Different but very good. Better the next day. I can only give this a four because frankly, I have better chicken soup recipes that I'd rather make. But this was light and refreshing.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: May 14, 2010
Awesome! I did not want to take out my bread maker, so I followed what another review did and mixed in my mixer and let rise an hour, punched down, separated into balls and let rise about 1/2 hour....turned out soft, and yummy. I did make two changes, as I had some buttermilk that needed to be used, so substituted that for the milk and I ended up using about 3/4 cups of whole wheat flour because I ran out of allpurpose. Still exellent. Thanks for the great recipe

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
I have tried bread recipe after bread recipe, and they have all ended up coming out like rocks. This recipe is divine. I did reduce the sugar to 1/4 cup as suggested by others and found the bread to be perfectly sweet. As this recipe makes two loaves, I made one with no alterations other than the sugar and the other I added dried cranberries and flax seed meal. Yummy...the bread came out fluffy and sweet. Can not wait to make sandwiches with it. This is a keeper

Carrot Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
This is delicious. I have been looking for something to spice up our rice, since I am tired of plain white or brown and I abhor using the packaged rice. I ended up using Jasmine rice and powdered ginger,as that is what I had on hand. I also omitted the cayenne, as I have a 3 year old, but overall the taste was flavorful. Husband really enjoyed it and said it had a nice Thai flavor. While this rice took a couple steps, it was fairly easy to make and the directions were clear. Will make again and again.

Spicy Three Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
Way too spicy for us and we like spice. My husband is Korean and grew up with spicy food. This was too overpowering

Shrimp Scampi III

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
This is really really easy to make and good. I did take the shrimp(used frozen) and I marinated in Italian dressing for an hour in the fridge with 1 tbsp of olive oil and 2 minced garlic cloves. Then I sauteed the shrimp with the marinade and 1 tbsp of butter, added the white wine, then the bread crumbs. Yummy
