Gourmet Cream of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
I followed the recipe but with some changes, such as, onion powder instead of onions because I didn't have any on hand. I also added carrot to the soup. Instead of heavy cream I used 1% milk. It's all I had. I used a potato masher to keep the soup chunky. It was a bit thin, but good any way. Great for a rainy day like today.

Caramel Shortbread Squares

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
Okay, so I followed the recipe and read the reviews after.. Oops. For starters, I pressed the shortbread into a square pan, lined with parchment paper. I baked it for about 5-6 minutes. It had a touch of golden brown on the outer edges. I did not poke the shortbread at all. Meanwhile I cooked the caramel mixture on the stove. I had the temp. at medium. It came to a boil and I did not touch it. That's my assumption from reading the recipe. After only 3 minutes I stirred the mixture. It started to darken, but not burn. I immediately took the mixture off the burner and began stirring for 3 minutes. I then took the shortbread from the oven, and poured the hot caramel over it. I placed the squares in the freezer for an hour. Once the caramel was hard I took them out of the freezer and removed the parchment paper. I didn't have any chocolate chips so I used some hot fudge sauce I had in the fridge. No, it won't harden, but that's okay, I'm keeping them in the fridge. I did taste them, and the cookie was a little crumbly, not it was not a huge mess like others suggested. The caramel was so soft and delicious. The hot fudge complemented the not so sweet cookie wonderfully. I just might make this caramel again only as a sauce for ice cream. Yum!

Oven Fried Chicken III

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
Tasted alot like the other bread, and baked chicken. I used skinless, boneless chicken breasts. For 2 breasts, I only needed 1/3 of a cup of mayo. I did as others suggested and baked the chicken in a 375 degree oven. It did stay a little mushy on top, but not enough to complain about. The rest was crunchy and good. We only had two small pieces as leftovers.(They were good the second day, cold.) The flavor wasn't bad, it just needed a dipping sauce. I served Ginger Sauce out of a jar.

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
I liked this recipe. However, I could have done without the cheese. I used bacon bits because it's all I had. I used some already made honey mustard, and added it to the mayo and onion. I would make this again, but my husband wouldn't eat it.

Brazilian Lemonade

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I sliced the limes into wedges and squeezed them into a pitcher. I added the sweetened condensed milk, and then the sugar. I mixed them a little, then added the water. I stirred everything together, leaving the pulp from the squeezed limes. We thought it was a little on the sweet side, but other than that, it was really good!

Amazing Mussels

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
This recipe tastes A LOT like the Chicken Milano from this site. The only difference is the fresh tomatoes rather than sun dried tomatoes. I didn't care for that recipe, I think it was the sun dried tomatoes. I followed the recipe only adding shrimp along with the mussels. It was all right, but I won't make it again.

Baked Chicken on the Grill

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
It tasted bland to me. I put cranberry sauce with mine, and for my husband, BBQ sauce. I'd make this again but with a cream sauce of some sort.

Cheddar Bacon Hamburgers

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
I used mayo horseradish, which worked just the same. I didn't put the cheese in the hamburger. Instead we put it on top. The buns were "Simple Whole Wheat Bread" from this website.

Cheddar Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
I put all of the dry ingredients in the same bowl. It was easier that way, and it worked just fine. I didn't have any rice cereal, so as you can see from my picture, I used Cheerios. I thought the chicken smelled better than it taste. My husband thought it was just okay.

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
I had some fresh cherries, and instead of eating them the way they are, I wanted a recipe. These scones are great! Better than that espresso place where I used to buy them. I added about 5 cherries, half, pitted and quartered. I put them in half the dough. The other half of dough is waiting in the fridge for some Reese's Pieces that my husband picked up. Should be great, and I will make these again!

Seafood Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
I warmed the sauce on the stove, (3 on my stove), a low heat. The sauce did not curdle. However, in the oven, it did, due to the high temperature. If I were to make it again, I wouldn't add the sauce until the enchiladas came out of the oven. My husband and I didn't like this recipe, so I won't be making this again.

Empanadas

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
In my opinion, the dough needed some sugar. And my husband thought the empanadas needed to be fried. I won't make these again.

Vanilla Ice Cream V

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
I changed the serving to 12. Instead of heavy cream, I used whipping cream. I have an old stove, and put the temperature on 3. I didn't let the creams boil or even simmer, just let the sugar dissolve. I tasted the ice cream as a liquid, and also had my husband try it. We agreed it was pretty darn good. I found it to be too sweet since I was going to make Kahlua (homemade, and non alcoholic.) flavor. I added in another cup of half and half, and another quarter cup of the whipping cream. I added about a an 1/8 of a cup of the Kahlua mix. The ice cream did come out with an icy texture, but it was still good, and my husband actually prefers it that way. We both agreed to keep this base, and make chocolate next time.

Marinade for Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
The chicken was marinaded over night. It was full of flavor, but for us it tasted too much like vinegar, and mustard. We purchased some mini premade pizzas and I put Bull's Eye Sweet and Sticky BBQ sauce, then cut up the chicken, sliced a button mushroom, and added marble cheddar cheese. It was great on my version of a BBQ Chicken Pizza.

Cream of Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
I didn't have poultry seasoning, so I used salt, pepper, and rosemary. I didn't add any milk to the soup. I thought the recipe was okay, but my husband didn't like it. I won't be making this again.

Flavored Latte

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
I don't have an espresso machine. I used instant coffee, and I warmed the milk up on the stove. I made a simple syrup and added a bit of vanilla to it. I also added some white chocolate, and marshmallows. I let them dissolve into the coffee. It's yummy! I'll make it again on another cold, and rainy day.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
The first time I made this I liked it. I dunno why though. This time around I felt that something was missing. Where's the sugar?! I added about 3/4 of a teaspoon of sugar. Yummy!

Sticky Monkey Brains

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
I didn't have any refridgerator biscuits so I made some with pancake mix and milk. I skipped out on the peacans because I didn't have any of those either. I made Sticky Monkey Brain Muffins instead of using a bunt pan. I found that I didn't have enough of the butter/brown sugar mixture, but they turned out yummy anyways. I'll definitely make these again.
