Garbanzo Tomato Pasta Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
I followed Wilemon's advice exactly, and the resulting soup was fresh and tasty--but not nearly as flavorful as I would like. I added a few drops of Sriracha sauce to the bowl, and my bland soup became one of the best soups that I have ever had!

Aloo Matar

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
Easy and tasty with a few minor modifications. I used 1 C of tomato puree & nearly doubled the seasonings. I also used far less oil--about 2 tablespoons rather than 1/4 cup to reduce the amount of saturated fat. When the potatoes started to stick, I just added a bit of water to help them steam. I do like my aloo mattar on the "soupy" side, and this recipe was quite thick even with the additional tomato puree. That said, this dish is delicious served with naan or roti and a little tamarind chutney. Even my picky boyfriend loved it!

Fluffy White Filling

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
This icing recipe is marginal at best. The taste of shortening was overwhelmingly strong in the final product. I attempted to rectify this by adding more sugar, but it didn't seem to make a dfference.

Ham and Potatoes Au Gratin

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
This recipe was delicious, but it took MUCH longer than 35 minutes to soften up the potatoes as they were still raw at that point. When I made this recipe, I had to bake the dish for 90 minutes to get the right texture. The dish is a bit greasy, but that was easily mitigated by draining off the excess oil as it pools on top. Because the dish is a bit bland, I like to season it before serving with extra salt and pepper or creole seasoning.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2008
Wow, this soup is fantastic. I cooked the broth, onion, celery, and meat in a slow cooker for 6 hours. I did not have any ham on hand, so I used two small smoked pork shanks instead. After slow cooking, the meat fell right off the bone. This substitution gave the soup a wonderful smoked ham flavor. I finished the soup as directed, adding a few slices of velveeta for a cheesy finish. To thicken the soup, I simply took the lid off the pot and let it reduce naturally. Yum!!!!

Lemon Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2008
I found it to be too sweet and too thick, so I added a bit of softened light cream cheese. I then used this to ice a lemon cake, but I feel it would be better suited as a lemon cookie or sugar cookie frosting since it is so sweet and thick.

Easy Cheesy Chicken I

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
What comfort food--the chicken was so tender! I followed this recipe as directed. While I did enjoy the results, I agree that the recipe was a bit bland. Next time, I will add more garlic powder, onion powder, salt and black pepper. To call this recipe "cheesy chicken" is a bit of a misnomer. Creamy chicken would be a better descriptor, as the cheese flavor of the soup was lost among the cream of mushroom, cream of chicken and sour cream.

Creamy Hot Cocoa

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
Fantastic! So rich! I made this with 1/2 C white sugar, which was more than enough. The 3/4 C white sugar called for in the recipe would be far too sweet. I used skim milk, and I substituted the half-and-half with heavy cream because it is all I had on hand. Wonderful!

Quick Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
I opted to add 1 tsp of curry powder to this recipe per the recommendation of fellow reviewers. I did not enjoy the flavor of the curry powder in this recipe at all. Using both cream of mushroom and cream of chicken soups, the flavor of the broccoli was completely lost. I would recommend using cream of broccoli in place of one of these soups. I would also recommend that you partially precook this frozen broccoli before baking. I have had other recipes for Chicken Divan that I have enjoyed much more than this one.

Apple Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
I made this recipe with American Neufchatel cheese, rather than full-fat cream cheese. It was still creamy and flavorful. 1/2 cup of brown sugar was ideal for this recipe. It was quite sweet, but complemented the tart apples perfectly.

All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
Very tasty. I used fresh picked Golden Delicious apples from a local apple orchard. Instead of using 4 C white sugar, I used 1 C white sugar and 1 C brown sugar. This was still quite sweet with the reduced sugar quantity. I slow cooked this for 16 hours lid on, 2 hours lid off. I recommend preserving this recipe, because you will want to enjoy it all year long!
