Chocolate Mint Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2006
Wonderful recipe! These cookies remind me a little of Girls Scout Thin Mints. They were very easy to make and freeze well. I followed the recipe exactly except I was 2 Andes candies short, so I used chocolate chips on top for the last few cookies. I plan on taking them to a cookie exchange next week. Thanks for a great recipe!

Holiday Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
This is one of the best chicken salads I've ever had! The mayo is not overpowering and the combination of spices is just right. I cut the recipe in half and substituted walnuts for the pecans. Definitely a keeper!

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2008
Excellent recipe and very easy, too! I followed it exactly and had plenty of marinade leftover. It would easily have been enough for 8 chicken breasts. Next time, I might try marinating overnight.

Pat's Award Winning Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2007
I have to agree with the other reviewers that this cake was fantastic! I made it for my mother-in-law's birthday and it was a hit! It's definitely one of the easiest carrot cakes I've ever made. I skipped the frosting & gave it a light dusting of powdered sugar instead. It was still plenty sweet, moist and delicious. Thanks for a great recipe!

Linguine with Peppers and Sausage

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2007
Wow! What a wonderfully easy & delicious meal! I followed the recipe pretty closely, except I used turkey sausage, 1 green pepper & a 2 oz jar of sliced pimientos. I also used freshly grated parmesan, which does make a difference in taste. The wine added a nice subtle flavor. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for a great recipe!

Betsy's Mandarin Orange Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
What a great salad! I made it yesterday for the Super Bowl and my mother-in-law commented that it was one of the best salads she's had in a long time. I especially liked the flavor combination of the caramelized almonds and oranges. I did use clementines instead of canned. I also cut back on the red onion. I only used about 1/4 of the onion because I think using the whole onion would have been too overpowering. I'll definitely be making this again.

Pasta with Hot Sausage Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2007
This is a wonderfully easy, delicious recipe! I followed it pretty closely, except I used turkey sausage to reduce fat and I left out the capers, because I didn't have any. I drained the whole tomatoes and then mashed them before adding to the sausage. I reduced the pepper(s) to 1/8 tsp. each because my husband is not a fan of spicy food, but the wine & spices still added plenty of flavor. I let it simmer for about an hour and it made a thick, rich sauce. I'll definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2006
This is a wonderfully easy recipe! I followed it exactly, except I removed the chicken from the pan at the end and let the sauce cook down for another 10 minutes, which made it a little thicker. It was delicious and even rivalled the Chicken Marsala at our favorite Italian restaurant! I'll definitely be making this again!

Orange Pecan French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2006
Wow!! What a great recipe! It's so convenient to prepare it the night before and pop it in the oven the next morning. The combination of orange, brown sugar & pecans was really unique and delicious. I followed the recipe exactly, except I used Italian bread instead of French. I wouldn't change anything else!

Almond Maple Granola

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2006
This recipe went over really well with my family when they came to visit for Christmas. Everyone loved it! It's not too sweet and really delicious! I did cut back on the coconut and only used a 7 oz. package, which was still plenty. I wouldn't change anything else. Thanks for a great recipe!

Broccoli and Cheddar Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2006
This soup was delicious and very easy to make! My husband isn't usually a fan of broccoli-cheddar soup, but even he liked it. I followed the recipe exactly, except I used reduced-fat butter and it was still very rich & creamy. The sharp cheddar really adds a nice flavor. Thanks for a great recipe!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2006
This soup was absolutely delicious - very rich, creamy & flavorful! It's more like a chowder than a soup. I followed the recipe exactly except I used turkey kielbasa instead of ham. My husband enjoyed it, too. I'll definitely be making it again! Thanks for sharing!

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2006
This was absolutely delicious!! I used 2% milk instead of cream and it was still very thick & hearty. I also used light butter instead of regular and it didn't seem to make any difference. I will definitely be making this again!

Garlic Cheese Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2006
Wow! These were truly excellent! Very light & tasty and easy to make! I used Heart Healthy Bisquick and added 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder to the mix before baking, as others suggested. Instead of butter, I used Smart Balance and added 1/4 tsp. of garlic powder instead of 1/2 tsp. I will definitely be making these again!

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
This bread is delicious! I made it exactly as written, except I used a little more flour to make the dough come together. This one's definitely a keeper. Thanks for a great recipe!

Red, White and Blue Ambrosia

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2007
Wow! This was so good I couldn't stop eating it! I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious! Maybe next time, I'll use light cream instead of heavy cream to lower the fat content. I wouldn't change anything else! Update: I tried it with light cream and it just didn't have the same thick texture needed for this recipe. That's ok - it's definitely worth the calories!

Slow Cooker Chicken with Mushroom Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2006
Excellent recipe! I followed it exactly and cooked it on low for 5 1/2 hrs. It was just right. I have had trouble in the past using chicken breast in the slow cooker because it would become tough and dry but this was delicious. I will definitely make this one again!

Wild Rice Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2006
This was delicious! I couldn't stop eating it! As suggested by another reviewer, I sauteed the onion before adding to the rice mixture to give it a more subtle flavor. I used Cream of Chicken soup instead of Cream of Mushroom because of personal preference and I added some chopped broccoli. This was so easy to make, but it's nice enough for company, too. Thanks for a great recipe!

Apple Bacon Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2006
This soup has a very unique flavor. I made it exactly as written except I used turkey bacon instead of regular to lower the fat content and I used kidney beans instead of pinto. This recipe wasn't my favorite and my husband wasn't crazy about it, but I enjoyed it overall.
