Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2011
I don't use canned chicken; opted for rotisserie instead. We dipped celery, crackers, meatballs, and pita bread into this. My husband's exact words: "Never stop making this EVER."

Beef Meatballs and Picante Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2011
These were really tasty, and we enjoyed dipping them into the "Buffalo Chicken Dip" here on AR. I found this recipe did not need the egg as after adding the sauce and jelly, the mixture was very moist. An egg would have done more harm than good, so I opted to leave it out. The meatballs formed and stuck together great. I did add salt and pepper. Bonus points for ease!

Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2011
I'm torn about how to rate this recipe. I love the simplicity of ingredients and after they sit for a day or two, they taste great. However, they crack ferociously when you put on the kiss - I lost about a quarter of my cookies during this process. They are worth making again, but next time I'll add flour to see if that helps with breaking.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2011
These are bland. Now I know why some reviewers added up to a cup of sugar (although I don't recommend that!) I guess if you decorate with a lot of frosting the flavor of the cookie won't matter as much, but I would definitely double the vanilla or add almond extract if I made again. The dough is easy to work with, but they're not the "best" ever.

Caramelized Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
LOVE the "caramelizing" cooking method here. The wings were so tender, and the stove top left a nice, crispiness in places. Sesame seeds and peanut butter together? Awesome.

Balinese Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
These were awesome. They're our new favorite chicken wing style. The baking leaves them the perfect tenderness. Everyone, even the kids, loved these!

Sweet Spicy Wings

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
Since I don't grill out in December, I drenched the wings in the sauce and then baked them for 30 minutes. When they were finished, I poured the remaining sauce over them. Perfectly tender and not offensively spicy.

Penne Tuscana with Spinach

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
The flavor in this dish is fantastic and deep. Other than using dried parsley rather than fresh, I followed the recipe exactly. More spinach than 3oz is definitely needed, so you might want to plan ahead for that if you make this. I went ahead and added about 9oz and it was great. Bonus points for this recipe being fast and easy!

Ruth's Red Lentil and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2011
We loved the latin flavor palate in this soup. Unfortunately my grocery store doesn't carry red lentils so we used "regular" dry lentils (the brownish-green kind.) I don't know if it tasted differently than it was intended, but it was good! Very earthy and satisfying. (I omitted the file powder.)

Double Chocolate Mocha Trifle

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
Can't complain! The ingredients are simple and instant, so although it's not '5 star restaurant' quality, it's a fun crowd pleaser, especially for kids. Needed a quick dessert and this fit the bill. Economical, too!

Pear and Almond French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
This was enjoyed by all the morning after Thanksgiving. Next time I will increase the pears so there is a solid layer of them; as is, they are too far between, and you're only likely to get one every other bite. I went ahead and put on the almonds before baking. It was easier and didn't have any adverse effect. The sourdough and almond extract make this a special french toast. A definite keeper~

Polenta and Wild Rice Burgers

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
I always enter into a recipe assuming I might have to adjust the seasonings to my preference, so giving this recipe a low score b/c some might find it bland seems unfair to what is a GREAT idea for veggie burgers. I've made veggie burgers with just about everything, and we were so pleased with how the polenta held up. A good alternative to this recipe is to use the tubed polenta rather than dry. We used brown rice, & I added an egg and 1/2 c wheat germ to get to a good point of sticky as not to fall apart while cooking, which so often happens to veggies. These cooked beautifully. Rather than add in cheddar, we put on provolone while "frying", which we did in just a bit of evoo. Thanks for a wonderful idea! Polenta veggie burgers are definitely making the rounds.

Mashed Maple Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
If you leave out the eggs there's no reason to put this back in the oven. Beat the potatoes while they're hot with the other ingredients and take the dish straight to the table. I used milk rather than cream, as it was what I had on hand. The maple flavor really comes through!

Rustic Multi-Grain Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
I was looking for a multi-grain bread with all the "stuff" in it and while I can't find a good one already listed on AR, this recipe is a GREAT base for the additions! So, I did just that: added sunflower seeds, flax, wheat germ and oatmeal. Since I took the previous reviewers' suggestions to omit the sugar and use half molasses, half honey instead, the extra dry ingredients I added afforded a PERFECT consistency to balancing out that wetness. The recipe made (2) 12 inch loaves, which were done baking in 30 minutes. Oh, I also heated all the wet ingredients, including the sweet stuff, in the microwave together, and used shortening rather than oil. SO WONDERFUL. Served with "Swanson® Roasted Tomato and Barley Soup" but this bread would be perfect alongside any soup!

Cream of Chicken with Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
I quadrupled this recipe and it worked great. Upon reading other reviews of it being on the bland side, I went ahead and used chicken broth instead of water. As it cooked and I tasted, I also found it necessary to add about twice the indicated salt and pepper, and garlic as well. It is very creamy and delicious!
