Easy Fruited Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 11, 2015
Made it as directed, husband and I loved it, Kid (who doesn't really care about chicken salad one way or the other) thought it was pretty good. Thanks!

Lemon Ginger Shrimp

Reviewed: May 2, 2015
Great marinade, super easy to prepare, and very tasty! I made it without changing anything (except I used dried cilantro and I used a mini food chopper to chop the onion and garlic really fine--no blender involved), and divided it in half, split between shrimp and chicken kabobs. Everyone loved it, no leftovers!

Quick Crispy Parmesan Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2015
Pretty darn good! I used chicken tenders, so the cook-time was even shorter, and everyone liked them! Definitely a do-again!

Hungarian Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2014
I've never really been a fan of cucumber salads, but I really do like cucumber. (Normally I put them on a platter as part of the crudites, or slice them in tossed green salad.) But my husband does like cuke salad, and his health demands that he eat a lot more vegetables, so I tried this for dinner this evening. It was a big hit! Son's girlfriend loved the dill, hubby had thirds, and once I found the right balance of salt to vinegar, I had seconds! Well done, and thanks for sharing it!

Maple Glazed Chicken with Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2014
I've made this about 5x since I first saw it. I always double it. I don't generally have chicken tenderloins, so I cut regular boneless-skinless breasts into large chunks. One of my daughters suggested adding pecan pieces to the maple, but I don't know how that will go with the onion. One time I started it before realizing we didn't have maple syrup, so I used butter, brown sugar, and a little water. It was still yummy. It's so good. We have a big family meeting tonight, and I'm making this because everyone loves it and it puts us all in a good mood! Thanks for a good 'un!

Moroccan Tagine

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2014
We love this. I'm making it again tonight. My kids don't like ethnic food, really, so the fact that they love this is kind of amazing. Thanks so much!

Sauteed Garlic Asparagus

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2014
Made this to go with a turkey dinner, and it was very good. Next time I'll add some white wine, that sounds extra-yummy! We might not have let it go the full ten minutes, and next time I'll make sure to go at least 12, because I like my asparagus less than crunchy.

Pan Fried Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2014
Really good! I liked doing these on the cooktop, because my oven was busy with Chicken Parmesan Bake (Chef John!), and I needed to use the Brussels Sprouts before I had to throw them away. I did them in cast iron, and I put the garlic in at the same time as the sprouts so I didn't burn it. I used the trick with the water and the lid because the onions were burning and the sprouts weren't cooking very fast, and that evened things out nicely! My daughter's boyfriend had never had them before, and said they were delicious. I thought so too!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2012
The only way I'd ever eaten brussels sprouts was swimming in cheese sauce. Alas, health needs have dictated that we find another way to enjoy them! So I thought this would be a nice beginning place, and it was! My oven was too hot, so the outer leaves got too toasted, but inside, yummy! We'll do this again, because there was no bitterness, just good flavor! I might add some other spices or herbs to it next time, for variation. But I'm really shocked that someone would give a bad review without trying it first. Not cool.

Easy Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2012
I made this tonight for my family, using fresh green beans, and I added some lemon juice as another reviewer suggested. My kid who dislikes all vegetables had thirds and then picked at the dish after dinner was over and we were sitting around the table. Everyone had at least once serving, most people had two. While I was only mildly pleased with it, everyone else at the table thought they were fabulous. So well done!

Apple Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
Yum! Took the advice of many reviewers, added lemon peel and orange peel, extra apple, brown sugar in part. The teenagers ate almost all of them before I could get to them. Thanks for the great recipe!

Pecan-Crusted Pork with Pumpkin Butter

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
I made this for a dear friend's birthday supper. I was quite skeptical about the pumpkin butter, but it was a hit! My kids are squabbling about who is taking the leftovers for lunch to work (I hit a sale on pork chops, so I made nine). I could not find pumpkin puree at the grocery (apparently it's seasonal, or else no one cooks with it anymore), so I used pumpkin pie filling, omitted all the spices and sugar, and just used the apple juice. Also, because I wanted the breading to really stick, I dipped the chops in beaten egg. Yum, lots of thumbs up at my house. Thanks for making me look good!

Penne with Chicken and Pesto

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2011
Yum! The pesto I had to make first took much more effort than this--it was so easy! I used farfalle because it's what I had, and also had to use evaporated milk because I don't keep cream on hand, but that single substitution makes this a go-to meal--I have all the ingredients on hand all the time! Well done, and thanks for sharing!

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2011
My husband recalculated the recipe for 20 people and served it to the teenagers in the youth group of our church. There weren't any leftovers. Yummy recipe!

Cider Vinegar Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
It smelled good at the end of the baking time, but the vinegar was too strong for everyone in the family.

Apple Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
I think the apples you use can make or break this recipe. I made it with Jonamacs, and it doesn't seem very flavorful. And the texture is a little mushy. I'm going to try it again in a few weeks with Jazz, if I can still find them. So my pie turned out...nice, pleasant, but forgettable. But I don't think it's the fault of the recipe. I learned my lesson about trusting what the sign at the grocery tells me is a good cooking apple.

Best Ever Pie Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
I confess I have never made pie crust before. But I make scones, so I understand not overworking the dough, etc. I thought I would try this crust. It seems similar to the one my mother made when I was a kid. I thought it was a lot of shortening, but I used it. I used self-rising flour, so I left out the salt. I did add about 1/4 cup more flour as I worked in the shortening, and I used ice water, only adding as much as it took to hold it all together, which was nearly 1/2 cup. I chilled it 15 min in freezer, then 15 in fridge. The first half was sticky and a little hard to handle. The second half, that extra five minutes in the fridge made it very easy. I made apple pie filling, which would have been excellent with different apples (Jonamac doesn't have enough flavor and the texture is mushy). Bottom line: the crust was the best part of my pie. I had good luck with this recipe. Thanks!

English Royalty Chocolate Chip Scones

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
Yum! LOVE them! I use self-rising flour usually, so I don't add salt or baking powder, and they taste and rise just fine. I increased the butter to 8 T, and didn't have orange juice so I used milk, and they still taste fabulous. My children, who have never liked scones before, now squabble over these.

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
We loved them! They taste good, they aren't enormously unhealthy, and there aren't a million ingredients! I used the whole cup of butter and just gave the oatmeal some extra time heating to help absorb it, and I think it did keep the dough from falling apart. Next time I'm adding chopped pecans to the oat mix!
