Croutons

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
Easy recipe for garlic croutons. I used day-old bread, which made even crispier croutons. Used them in a casserole and it worked out great for me. EDITED: You can make this to suit any kind of salad or recipe you need it for. I like to use homemade seasoning mixes to season these croutons, anything from italian seasoning to cajun seasoning. If you cool them and throw them in your food processor and grind them down, you instantly have homemade breadcrumbs that are excellent in meat loaf or meat balls!

Rosemary Cheddar Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
I used my Kitchen Aid from beginning to end with this bread. I proofed the yeast in my mixer bowl with the warm water and sugar for ten minutes, then added the oil and last, the dry ingredients. The dough seemed a bit dry, but kneaded up nicely. I set it to rise on my warm oven in a large, greased bowl covered with saran wrap for an hour. After, I formed it into a loaf and set it in a loaf pan and covered it again with saran wrap and let it rise again. This made one monster loaf. Very flavorful. Most wonderful. One of the most tender loaves I've eaten. And the smell while baking was insane. I served this with Slow Cooker Creamy Potato Soup. Nice combination. I'll make this again for sure.

Layered Mousse Bites

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
Grandma made this dessert when I was growing up, only she made it in parfait glasses. My favorites are either strawberry or orange. Grandma sometimes would make it with fruit juice or 7-UP and add chopped fruit. This is extremely comforting for most anyone, especially when you've got a flu/cold/sore throat.

Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
I can't give more than five stars. If I could, I doubt I'd ever stop. The ham was wonderful on it's own, but the glaze really took it over the top. This will be my new ham recipe from now on. Bravo, Connie. Even my picky husband couldn't stop raving about this. Sorry, no pics. My camera died this morning.

Savory Biscuit Bites

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
These are pretty good. I did add a bit of garlic powder. I served these with Pioneer Woman's Lasagne. Everyone gobbled them up. Be sure to watch these closely, they will scorch easily.

Oat-N-Honey Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
I don't have a bread machine but I do have a Kitchen Aid. I warmed the water and buttermilk together until the right temp, then set it to proof the yeast in the mixer bowl for ten minutes. When the yeast was ready, I added the remaining wet ingredients, then all the dry which I'd run a wisk through before slowly adding it into the mixer bowl. I did have to add a couple healthy spoonfuls of flour to the bread dough to get it to come together and jump on the bread hook. I let the hook knead the bread for five minutes, then set it to rise in my largest bowl,which I greased and covered with saran wrap, for an hour. After it doubled, I formed it into a loaf and set it in the loaf pan and covered it again and let it double again. This took about a half hour to bake @350. And the smell was so wonderful, not to mention the taste. I like the texture that the oatmeal lends to the bread and the flavor of the buttermilk with the honey and wheat. This bread is out of this world. I served it with Slow Cooker Creamy Potato Soup. This recipe's a keeper. NOTE: You don't need a bread machine for most bread recipes. If you have a stand mixer, you can do just about anything you could with a bread machine.

Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
I omitted the sugar and salt, but kept everything else the same. (We're not big on sweet, mayonnaise-y salads and the salad would be salty enough with the bacon, cheese and mayo.) When I served it for lunch, I sprinkled chow mein noodles over the top. We all loved this. The red wine vinegar really made a typical broccoli salad better. My oldest son had two big helpings! Very good. This one's a keeper.

Chocolate Covered Marshmallows

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
My kids and I were looking for something fun to do with Kraft's new Vanilla-Caramel marshmallows. This was an incredibly simple cooking project we could all do together to make everyone happy. We doubled the recipe easily and dipped the chocolate-covered marshmallows in chopped peanuts. The kids are WAY happy and think I'm a total rockstar. All with minimal ingredients. Thanks!

Multi-Grain Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
I made this the night before. I switched the yogurt and milk amounts and used buttermilk. I also added 1 tsp. of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp. nutmeg. These puffed up nicely and were quite filling. I served them with Cinnamon Cream Syrup also from this site. Very good. We all liked these pancakes and the yogurt gave it a nice twang. I bet these would be good with blueberries. I'm glad I decided to switch the yogurt and milk amounts. I'm afraid the might not have been as good. This made 15 medium pancakes. NOTE: 1/3 c. of oatmeal is just what's in an envelope of instant oatmeal. If you are like me and buy it in bulk when it's on sale, you can use one of those.

Risotto with Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
Hey, Sunny! I did it! This recipe was pretty straightforward, which I was thankful for. I used the broth from my ham that I boiled up and froze earlier that week and ham bits that I strained out of the broth. I followed the instructions completely, only omitting any extra salt because I knew my ham broth would be salty enough on it's own. I had no issues, this turned out wonderfully. I was SO proud because this was my first ever risotto. And the combo of the ham and the asparagus was out of sight. This one's a keeper. (And the husband ate grilled cheese last night. He dosen't like asparagus, so this was all mine. *evil laugh*) I DID IT. Thank you for this recipe.

Orange Pops

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
I make these during the summer a lot, though I do make them a little different. I omit the sugar and use cold orange juice or 7-UP. Grandma made these same popsicles when I was growing up. The neighborhood kids know I make these and once they see my kids rockin' these, they ask for some, too. So, for all you other mothers......make extra! ;) NOTE: You can make these easily using dixie cups and popcicle sticks. Just let them firm up well enough so the sticks don't fall over or come out wonky.

Herbed Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
I used my Kitchen Aid from beginning to end. I proofed the yeast in the mixer bowl with the sugar and warm water for ten minutes. After that, I added the butter and the dry ingredients all together. I did double the spices. I had a hard time getting the dough to jump on the hook as it was so sticky, but I added a bit more flour and it came together. I kneaded it with the bread hook for five minutes, then set it to rise on my warm oven in my largest bowl, covered with saran wrap for an hour. After it doubled, I formed it into a loaf and set it in a loaf pan, covered it and let it rise for another half hour on my warm stove. This bread dough both raised and baked up beautifully. And the smell, woo-eeee. And the flavor is in-sane. I plan on making this again for sure. I might add a 1/4 c. of parmesan cheese next time. EXCELLENT BREAD.

Kielbasa with Peppers and Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
This is one of my favorite breakfast foods. And I can usually find most of the ingredients on the cheap at my local discount grocery store. I suggest that you make a homemade salsa and scrambled eggs and wrap the mixture up in tortillas with a little cheese and sour cream. Filling, cheap and oh....so....good.

Classic Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
I wish my camera wasn't broken. This bread looks SO pretty. I used FF plain yogurt instead of sour cream and added a tsp. of vanilla. I seperated the batter between two greased loaf pans, which made them about half full. I didn't need to cover them halfway through and I didn't have any issues with the bread cooking too quickly on the outside. Very simple bread and the yogurt lends a nice tang. I'll make this again.

Cookies 'N' Cream Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
My husband loves anything thing Oreo-ish. I made my own chocolate cookie crust out of Walmart-brand faux-reos, fat free whipped topping and SF pudding. I tasted the filling and it's really good. I can only imagine how my husband would like it. And it only took a matter of minutes. (My husband loved this. Thank you.)

Watermelon and Strawberry Lemonade

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
I needed a few recipes today to keep my mind off my troubles. This is one of them. Took a bit of work (and I strained the heck out of this) but when all was said and done, the end product is incredible. (I'm so happy I live in an area where the Farmers Markets are so wonderful and have such fresh ingredients.) I suggest you do what I did and buy a seedless watermelon. I can't wait to share it with my family for dinner! A+++++++!

Banana Nut Bread I

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
For some reason, the bananas I've been buying lately have been ripening quicker than my family can eat them. This is the third recipe I've made in two days. Only change I made was adding a 1/2 tsp. of butter flavoring. The batter was incredibly fluffy when I poured it into the pans. This made two big loaves. I plan on giving it to my mother in law, so I'll update when she's had a chance to enjoy it.

Rangpur Rickey

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
I'm not normally a gin drinker. Vodka is my poison. But, I liked this. Very refreshing. Very tart. Not overly sweet. I've had two so far and I like it the more I drink it. YUM. (Scotdog, I think you might like this one.)
