Ranch Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2009
This is a great salad, a nice change from the Italian dressing salad. I always use bow tie pasta! I add peas, tomatoes, broccoli flowers, cucumbers, chopped red and yellow peppers, along with some fresh garlic. Best prepared the night before! I always start out with a half of a bottle of ranch (use a good brand)and add as needed every few hours until the right consistency! I leave out the bacon and ham. Great base of a recipe!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: May 27, 2009
I used my Kitchen Aid mixer and thought it was super easy! I did mix the butter and cinnamon/sugar together to help prevent the cinnamon and sugar from falling out. I also added more cinnamon and sugar just because I like my rolls really gooey! My son wantes them again so I'm going to try making them at night and baking them in the morning. Thanks for the great recipe!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
Man, I really wanted to love this dish! It was a total flop. It was way too salty...even using low sodium soups. It tasted like school cafeteria food processed to the hilt. We added celery and peas and only one can of biscuits. Even after cooking the biscuits for 1.5 hours, it was still a gooey mess. Our family of five couldn't eat it. What a bummer. I'll just stick to the old fashioned way!

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
This is a great recipe, I've been using a very similar one for almost 17 years. I use 3 cloves of fresh minced garlic, a few red pepper flakes, and add the peppers two hours before the dish is finished. Instead of sugar, I have always used dark molasses. It adds a great depth to the dish as well as serves as a thickening agent!

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
These were the best peanut butter cookies I have made! I only put 1 tblsp of milk and I rolled the cookies in sugar before criss crossing them with the fork tines. 7 minutes was the perfect time in the oven to keep them nice and chewy. Thanks for the great recipe!

Bacon Mushroom Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2006
This was GREAT, but we did make some changes to it.First I marinated boneless skinless breasts in white wine, garlic, and pepper for a few hours. Then I cooked the bacon for a little bit. Using the grease from the bacon, I sauteed garlic, onions, and triple the mushrooms. Placed the marinated chicken in a dish and covered with the mushroom mixture. I baked at 325 for 35 minutes. For the sauce I used the drippings from the pan and used triple the amount of heavy cream and 1/2 cup of white wine.Simmered and thickened with a little cornstarch. Served over bow tie pasta.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2006
This is soooooo good.I totally agree with the reviews on the salt. I love salt and I added NO salt in the entire dish. I t seemed perfect without any. For the marinade I also added minced garlic and cilantro. For the sauce i doubled the tomato sauce and cream (used 1 cup whipping cream and 1 cup of coconut milk). I love onions so I sauteed onions with the garlic and jalepenos. Served with basmatti rice and naan. Sooooo great!

Naan

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2006
These were fabulous! We omitted the garlic and just brushed it on with the melted butter. I lef the garlic out of some altogether and my son put butter and honey on it. Very versatile, definitely not just for Indian food! Thanks so much!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2006
This is really good. The first time we made this it was sooooo greasy!! DEFINITELY cut the butter and oil in half. The second time we made it we added more mushrooms, onion, minced garlic, half the oil and butter, and cream at the end. Fantastic!

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2006
This is better than any other recipe I have tried! TRULY restaurant quality...maybe even better! I used jarred alfredo sauce, marinated hearts, the entire block of cream cheese, 6 cloves of garlic, and fresh parmesan cheese. Instead of just mozzerella, I used an Italian blend of cheese.For extra zing I put in about 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper. My husband and I can make a meal of this! THANKS SO MUCH!!!

Orange Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2006
This is a great, refreshing cake!!! I took the advice of some of the other reviewers and used an orange cake mix, vanilla pudding, and orange zest. Then, for some unknown reason, I had it in my mind that the recipe called for 8 ounces of sour cream. After I dumped it into the batter I gasped!!! I figured I would just let it ride and see how it panned out!!! AWESOME!!! I think the sour cream made the cake denser than it would have turned out. I plan on making it with the sour cream every time now. Sometimes mix ups make for great discoveries,lol!I made glaze using powdered sugar and orange juice, but it truly didn't need it. A dollop of whipped topping is great!!

Florentine Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2004
This dip was AWESOME!!!! I made it with 1- 8 oz package of cream cheese and 8 oz of sour cream. I added the parmesan cheese and also 1/2 cup of monterry jack. After the dip came out of the oven and I tasted it, I felt like it was still needing something. I added some crushed red pepper and a can of crabmeat and stuck it back into the oven for a few more minutes.That totally did the trick! The dinner guests devoured it in no time!!! Thanks for the great recipe.
