Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
Made just like recipe said. I used 5 whole chicken breasts cut in half lengthwise. They turned out very good, moist on the inside and crisp on the outside. Didn't take long to put together and made a nice presentation. Had plenty of breading. Good recipe. Nice to be able to just do in oven and not have to bother with browning in fry-pan first.

Famous Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2010
These were pretty good but not sensational. I made them just like the recipe said to, except uncovered them the last 20 min. You couldn't taste the Ritz crackers in the crust, like you'd like to. The bottom was soggy, but not awful. Don't think I'd make them again.

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
This was the recipe I'd been looking for. I did 1 1/2 times the topping, and it was almost too much, but not quite--go figure. Added 1/2 cup flour to the sugar and peaches to thicken the juice, and it was just right. Next time I would increase the peaches just a little and still 1 1/2 times the topping. Was delicious warm with vanilla ice cream!!

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
My husband said this was "luscious". I thought it was very good, but quite rich and needed the whipped cream to soften the impact just a bit. It set up very well and was easy to cut and looked pretty on the plates. I would serve it for company, with quite a dollop of whipped cream on top and a little grated lime rind to top it off. Update: I tried it with just the two cans Eagle Brand and about 3/4 cup sour cream and used bottled organic lime juice. Flavor was softened a bit, could taste the sour cream just a little more, and was a little better than the original recipe, I thought. Next time would go back to the 1/2 cup sour cream, still use just the 2 cans Eagle Brand, and if I'm in a hurry, still go with the bottled lime juice, as it was very good.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
This was very good as most banana breads are. Had that little tang of sour cream, though, which made it good. Was best when first made. Over time, the sour cream taste became stronger and took away from the really great flavor.

Beefy Corn Bread Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
This was really good. My very picky granddaughter really liked it. A true comfort food. Left out the jalapeno peppers for kids and family, but would be good for my husband who loves hot peppers. Next time will make half with peppers and half without.

Rhubarb Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
This cake was pretty bland without much flavor of the rhubarb coming through. Next time I'd try about 4 cups rhubarb. I'd use brown sugar, too, to give the cake more flavor and moistness.

Scrambled Egg Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
These turned out good and 2 of them made a nice breakfast entree. I added a little mayo and water as one reviewer suggested to make them puff up, which was fun. Overall very good. Would make them again, as they are kind of a novelty, too.

Layered Chicken and Black Bean Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: May 29, 2010
My husband said this was the best casserole I'd ever made. I made it pretty much like the recipe except used flour tortillas (because I had them on hand), more chicken, more sour cream, more green chilies, and more enchilada sauce. I guess I just 11/2 timed the recipe. Anyway, it was delicious. Will definitely make it again.

Surprise Apple Salad

Reviewed: May 29, 2010
I made this with Golden Delicious apples, thinking the really tart Granny Smiths would be too tart. But I think they would have been better. It was quite good, but not fabulous. One thing I learned is not to crush the Snickers Bars too long before you're ready to mix them into the apples. They tend to glob together into lumps which don't mix in as well. Also, because I decided the apples were not tart enough, I added a little lemon juice to the apples (also to keep them from browning). I don't know if that's what made the whipped topping curdle or not, but it did. The appearance was then not as appetizing. I think I'll make it again, but try to correct my mistakes.

Autumn Apple Salad

Reviewed: May 20, 2010
This turned out to be a delicious salad. When first making it, I thought it tasted a little too strongly lemon flavored, but after chilling, it was just great. It is a robust salad with the celery, nuts, apples, and pineapple--lots of good nutrition. Good for any time of year--not just Autumn! Very luscious salad.

Maple Bacon Pancake

Reviewed: May 20, 2010
Baked this for our daughter, who was visiting for a few days. She loved it, and so did husband and I. Was moist and sweet. Put bacon into batter and a little on top with a little cheese. I loved the combination of the sweet coffee cake and bacon. Couldn't taste the cheese at all, but added to the moistness. I wanted to use some buttermilk I had, and didn't have any baking mix, so used 1 cup flour, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp soda, 1/4 tsp salt, and cut 1/4 cup butter into the dry ingredients. Then used buttermilk instead of milk. Overall, was delicious and will make it again for us or even company.

Easter Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: May 19, 2010
This was a really delicious breakfast casserole. I used potatoes O''brien and baked them 20 min. before adding the rest of the ingredients. Will definitely make this again for company or special occasion.

Mushroom Sauce Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 19, 2010
This dish was quite good. I sliced potatoes quite thin, and baked them about 20 min. before adding pork chops and finishing baking. They still were not overly done. Used the low salt-low fat version of mushroom soup, and that really diminished the overall flavor and quality of the dish, I think. Think this recipe has lots of potential. Will try it again using regular mushroom soup.

German Pancake with Buttermilk Sauce

Reviewed: May 19, 2010
My family thought this was delicious. The sauce made it really good, as the pancake itself had very little flavor. I diced an apple, sprinkled on the bottom with the melted butter, and baked about 15 minutes to soften before adding the pancake batter and baking. That added to the interest and flavor. The caramel and apple went well together. Should have sprinkled a little sugar over the apples, though. Next time. Overall was quite good and fun to watch it baking, as the sides puffed up. I'll make it again, for company or a special occasion. Presentation was quite nice. Sauce was good enough to eat by itself.

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
Sweet potato casserole that is not quite as sweet as some others. A little more of the sweet potato taste rather than sugar comes through. The topping is delicious on these and makes up for less sweetness in the sweet potatoes. Very good casserole.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
I had to make this without salt, as husband and father-in-law are on low salt diets. Of course it turned out rather bland. Added about 4 times the catsup in meat layer, but still think it could have used a little perking up. Maybe with some fresh, chopped tomatoes, mushrooms. Added partially cooked mixed vegetables in between carrot and potato layer. That turned out good. Potato layer was rather lifeless, too, though. Should have used milk to mash with potatoes, rather than water. Low-salt diet isn't that much fun--you don't realize how much you do love that salt. Update: Tried this with salt substitute added and was much better--thus five stars. Still added the mixed vegetable layer and mashed the potatoes with some added milk. Is very colorful with the mashed carrot layer and the vegetables. A meal in itself.

Feta Cheese with Basil Salad

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
I was trying to decide between two kinds of Greek-sounding salads and ended up combining them. Used this recipe and just added about 2 1/2 cups cooked orzo. Gave the salad more volume and blended nicely with other salad ingredients. Think I would do it this way again. The fresh basil tasted wonderful with this dish.

Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
These were really moist (I added a little more carrot than recipe). They were very good--maybe just a little sweet--might decrease sugar to 1 cup. Used brown sugar, as I almost always do if there's an opportunity to. Second batch of muffins I baked on higher rack in oven, and they browned better. Made 24 muffins. Were very good, but not just wonderful--so 4 stars. Didn't look like picture at all. Were kind of flat on top. Maybe I did something wrong?? Kind of out of practice at making muffins. Update: I got a new box of baking soda and what a difference. The muffins were lighter, rose higher, and tasted wonderful. Would give 5 stars.

Christmas Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
Changed the recipe a quite a bit, but was a great base recipe. Very easy to substitute ingredients to your liking. Used 9 eggs, potatoes O'brien, 1/2 cup chopped jalapeno pepper, 1/2 cup cup-up tomato, 1 lb sausage, and about 3/4 lb chopped ham. Left out the salt. Left out the onion and mushrooms, as was in too much of a hurry to prepare and cook them. Did add some dry onion to the egg mixture. Layered it as suggested by a reviewer--1/2 potatoes on the bottom, covered with the cheese, meat, vegetable mixture, and topped with the rest of the potatoes. Baked it the same day. Then sprinkled about 3/4 cup shredded cheese on top, 10 minutes before it was done. Looked very nice when cut with the layers. Very presentable with the cheese topping. Very filling and delicious.
