Delicious Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
I made this recipe per the directions except instead of cooking chicken breasts, I used a purchased roasted chicken. Therefore, since I didn't have chicken stock from the chicken breasts, I used canned chicken stock. I did half the cracker topping and it still covered the casserole. My grandchildren and I each had two servings. My teenage grandaughter thought it was a little too creamy for her liking, but I thought it was perfect. Will definitely make this again. Oh, after reading reviews, I used 1 1/2 cups of rice.

Microwave Popcorn

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
This popcorn is just as good as what we cook in our stove top popcorn popper. I gave it only 4 stars because there are a lot of kernels that do not pop. Quick and easy though.

Coffee Shake

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
I love this drink. I made this exactly as written but used skim milk instead of whole, splenda instead of sugar and sugar free chocolate syrup. You can have this drink for a little less than 70 calories!! This is great for those of us watching our weight.

Made these for my 7 year old grandson, he said he would give them 80 stars if he could. Made exactly as recipe stated. I thought they were very good as well. Very easy to make.

Vicki's Hush Puppies

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
I loved these hush puppies! There is a little restaurant near our home called the "Catfish Hole", they made the best hush puppies in the world, NOW I CAN. I did add a very small amount of buttermilk to the mixture because it was very dry. They were crunchy on the outside and soft in the center. Delicious!

Soft Sandwich Buns

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
Love these sandwich buns. My husband eats them as a roll with butter. My favorite way to eat them is with a hamburger patty, pepperjack cheese and chipolte mayonnaise. You could also add a little red onion and lettuce, but doesn't need it. They are also easy to make, the hardest part is waiting for them to rise.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
I made this cake exactly as written as I wanted to review this recipe with no alterations. It is not a true review if changes are made. I made this cake following the directions exactly. The cake never rose in the center. After all the time I spent shredding the carrots, etc. I was extremely dissappointed. I had to question if my baking soda and baking powder were good, even though the expiration dates were 2012. I baked another cake tonight (chocolate) using my bp and bs and it turned out great, so that was not the problem. I did taste this cake, and it was very oily. The other reviewers are probably right when they cut the oil down or substituted applesauce. I will not be making this recipe again. I have made Sam's Carrot Cake from this site and it is delicious.

Easy Spicy Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2010
Made these for lunch today. They looked so delicious after cooking. I followed recipe exact except for cutting down the garlic powder a smidgeon My husband and I both loved them. Put cheese on half and left it off the other half. We both agreed we could take the cheese or leave it. It is a very tasty attractive dish and a keeper for my family. Will definitely make again.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
OMG...these were delicious while they were still warm, I was ready to give them 10 stars. However, the next day, they just didn't have that same texture. It could have been my fault though. Instead of using butter, I used the butter flavored Crisco and I didn't have the regular instant vanilla pudding so I substituted the Sugar Free. This is an excellent recipe though and it definitely deserves 5 stars.

BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
I spent 3 hours in the kitchen this morning so I would have the perfect BBQ Chicken Sandwich. I started with the homemade buns, and then worked on the BBQ Chicken and then I used Paula Deen's Coleslaw Recipe for the topping. The sandwich looked like a 5 star sandwich when I was finished with it. It was good too, but was way to sweet for me. It just boils down to personal preference, and I like BBQ spicy and not too sweet. If you prefer a sweet BBQ sauce you will really enjoy this recipe.

Pillow-Soft Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
May daughter talked me into making these because she said they would make a good sandwich roll. I made them according to recipe and as far as a sandwich roll goes, they held up well. Not what I am looking for though. There is a little sandwich shop in our town that make homemade bread for their sandwiches and it is the best ever. I am still searching for that perfect recipe, and they refuse to share their secret. Anyway, my husband had these with butter and said they were very good, but I will stick with my ole standby for homemade rolls.

Bake Sale Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
These were okay, but I will not make them again. I did made them exactly by the recipe. I do agree that 375 is too high to cook these. The crust was okay but a little chewy around the edges, and the filling was fine, but browned very quickly. I sat the timer for 20 minutes and they were very brown on top when I took them out. As far as flavor, I did not think that they were too sweet, but would have liked them a little more tart, maybe they just needed more lemon juice. They are good, just not one of my favorite recipes.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
Oh what a disaster I had with these. I decided to do the dough in my bread machine and followed the recipe exact. When the dough cycle was over, the dough was so wet that I could pour it out of the pan, and the yeast was still setting on top. So, I poured it into a bowl and added flour to get it to a thicker consistency and also to blend in the yeast. Believe it or not, they actually turned out pretty good and my husband actually had 5 of them for lunch. I will stick with my old faithful recipe though and continue to mix my rolls by hand.

Spicy Honey Mustard Pork Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
It may not be fair to rate this recipe because I used Pork Chops instead of the pork roast. (I was thinking about doing a pork roast for Easter and wanted to try the sauce before springing it on my family.) I also substituted the Dijon mustard with spicy brown mustard, so that may have made a difference in the flavor of the sauce. Also, the recipe called for 2 Tablespoons of black pepper and I thought that was too much and I used only 2 Teaspoons of the black pepper. Now I know that 2 T was too much. I did not care for this recipe and out of 3 I tried, this was my least favorite.

Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
I followed the recipe exactly except that I used pork chops instead of the pork loin so I could see if I liked the flavor of the sauce (I was thinking about doing a pork roast for Easter). First of all, I didn't have enough rub for the pork chops, much less a roast, so I would definitely double the rub if making a roast. I did like the flavor of the sauce, but the recipe is not good enough that I would make it again.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
Delicious. I bake this bread at least once a week and it is so easy to make. I do mash the bananas instead of slicing them and I use pecans instead of the walnuts. My daughters are always wanting me to make them a loaf but most of the time my little 87 year old Dad gets it. Again, this recipe is perfect.

Meringue II

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
This is an excellent meringue recipe. I will definitely use it for my next cream pie recipe. Stiff peaks and NO weeping. Thanks for the recipe.

Bev's Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
I thought this pie was delicious and so did my family. The filling is much like a Chocolate Chess Pie recipe that I have, but adding the meringue on top, took it up another notch. Also, I have so much trouble making cream pies because the pie crust shrinks up on me when baked first. Baking the filling in the unbaked pie crust worked perfectly. I did not use the meringue recipe attached to this recipe, but substituted it with the Meringue II recipe from this site, which is an excellent recipe too.

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
This recipe is delicious. However, we do not put the cheese on it and put it under the broiler. We love the Bruschetta cold served on toasted baguette slices, etc.
