Chicken Pot Pie VIII

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2006
Wow!! This pot pie is AWESOME!! So easy and delicious! I used a premade crust, added a little extra onion and used 3 cups water plus 3 chicken boullion cubes in place of the broth, but the flavor was still supurb! I didn't have a pie tin, so I used a deep square baking dish and make mine "deep dish" style, which works pretty well and keeps the crust from overriding the flavor of the filling. My guests, husband, and children all wolf this down -- its perfect!!

Mini Sour Cream Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
WOW! These are great! So easy and really delicious! My family loved them! Instead of 12 mini biscuits, I made 6 regular-sized ones (didn't have a mini pan), and they still turned out perfect. Also, I lined the muffin tin with cupcake wrappers to save on clean-up and that worked great. Very yummy and easy - I will definitely be making these again!!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
I had given up on Chicken Cordon Bleu a few years ago. I hated the nightmare of the rolling and browning, and I found the results less than impressive. But, I was in a school-night dinner pinch and needed to use up some sliced ham, so I decided to give it a go. This turned out great!! I did change up the cooking method a bit - like I said, I hate the rolling. So instead, I coated the chicken with the flour and paprika and browned it in the skillet, then transfered to a baking dish, layered the ham and cheese on top, and baked at 375 for about 20 mins. Meanwhile, I made the sauce separately. Dinner was made - start to finish - in about 30 mins! This was so easy, fast (with my cooking method), and delicious! The sauce was out of this world! I'm making Cordon Bleu again!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
These are amazing in every way! They are soooo easy and fast to make, and are delicious! I made these for my daughter's preschool teacher who has Celiac disease as a present for Teacher Appreciation Week, and she, and the other parents she shared them with (including me), thought they were amazing. She even asked me for the recipe. :)

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
This soup is sooooo good!! And its really easy to make (provided your potatoes are pre-baked). I went ahead and left the potato skins on, and subbed red pepper flakes for the hot pepper sauce, but otherwise followed the recipe and it turned out amazing. I am 7 months pregnant and had a major craving for potato soup today, and this totally hit the spot!! And, the icing on the cake - my kids loved it too! I'm making this one again, for sure!

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: May 29, 2008
Wow, it stands up to its name! These really are "actually delicious turkey burgers"! I hadn't made turkey burgers in years, but was in the mood for burgers and our store had a ground turkey 2 for 1 sale, so I decided I would give it one more try. Glad I did because these were delicious!! Half the ingredients and prep of my old recipe, and MUCH tastier! I did leave out the parsley and onion (didn't have any), and had no egg (which I was a bit worried about), but they still held together great and had flavor. I broiled mine on a wire rack over a baking sheet to cut down on fat, and they turned out perfect! Pretty much fool-proof, I'd say. Thanks for this recipe - its easy and delicious!

Rhubarb Strawberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
This is reeeaaally good!! I didn't have quite enough strawberries (not even 1 whole cup - my daughter ate them), but even with mostly rhubarb, this was sweet and tasty. I love how easy the crust was too - I hate making crusts because they are usually so tedious. I did take another's suggestion and didn't use oil in the crust. Instead, I used 1/2 c melted butter and 1/2 c water. It made for very pliable, moist dough, so I didn't need to roll out or put the milk wash on the dough before baking; I just stretched the dough by hand and sprinkled the sugar directly on the dough. I was worried with my modifications and not having enough strawberries that it may not taste right, but it is delicious!! Definitely a great treat!

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
YUM! I was pleasantly surprised by this dressing. I made a simple salad of baby mixed greens, black olives, tomato, and cucumber and wanted a complimentary dressing, and this was fabulous! I scaled the vinegar back a little, per hubby's request, but other than that, stuck to the recipe, and it was perfect - very flavorful and light. I will be making it again, for sure!

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
Yum!! This is fantastic frosting! I added about 1/2 c raspberry juice (raspberries and water put in a blender then strained) into mine because I wanted it to taste like raspberry, and it turned out great! Very light, airy, fluffy, and delicious, but yet the right consistency for piping onto my cupcakes. I recommend, though, to others who may want to add a different flavor to scale back on the vanilla. Its a little much if you're going for any flavor other than vanilla.

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
This is a great sauce! Not only is it delicious, it is super easy and fast to make. I made this for my daughter's birthday, then again to top eggplant parmesan, and both times got good reviews. So no matter what you use the sauce for, it works great! Like others, I added some brown sugar to neutralize the acidity of all the tomato products, which I think is important. And I upped the amount of garlic to 2 cloves the second time because the first time it seemed just a hair bland. I will say though, this is the first, and only, sauce recipe I have ever made twice -- no others quite compare. Very yummy and worth making over and over again!

Teriyaki Tuna Steaks

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2008
This is awesome!! We all were raving about it, and even my 4 and 6 1/2 year olds LOVED it! I didn't have pineapple juice, and we added about 1 tsp of wasabi (which I think was a good move - it gave it some extra spunk). Also, instead of grilling, we pan-seared then baked it, and it was amazingly good. Not one complaint out of us!

Beer Batter Fish Made Great

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2008
YUM! These are great! I used fresh tuna my sister-in-law caught, and it was awesome! Very flavorful, and I didn't find it over-seasoned or too salty at all. I did follow others' advice and dipped in flour before putting in the hot oil, and it definitely helped because my batter was super runny for some reason. I try and stay away from fried food for the most part, but these are awesome and we'll be having them again!

Peach Cobbler Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
This is SO GOOD!! I've made this about half a dozen times now, and it has always turned out superb! Like someone else suggested, I added a little cinnamon (1 tsp...maybe a little more? I didn't measure), and double the almond extract. Also, I had no pecans (don't really care for them anyway), so I left them out. I absolutely loved the flavor and it was so soft, moist, and sweet. The kids and hubby LOVE this, and I even took it to my daughter's preschool for snack and most of the kids loved it (and all their moms wanted the recipe)! Definitely a keeper!

Herbed Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
Very yummy! I love that it can be made with very little, its pretty healthy, and quick! I added some carrot, a minced clove of garlic, and a dash of red pepper flakes, and like a few others, used chicken broth in place of the water. I think the rosemary and thyme could be scaled back just a tad, but maybe that is just a personal preference. I also think it tastes better with half milk and half cream/half-and-half. With just milk, it lacks the creaminess. But regardless, the outcome is a quick, easy, tasty soup - just what I was looking for! Also, one time I tossed in about 2 cups of leek to make a potato-leek soup, and it turned out AMAZING!! So not only is this delicious on its own, its also great as a base for potato-leek soup - very versatile and essentially foolproof! Thanks for this recipe, its been added to our rotation.

Maple Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
This got rave reviews at Thanksgiving dinner! I had never made cranberry sauce before, and was shocked to see how easy it was. I picked this recipe because it looked unique and sweet, and it was both. The maple didn't overpower the sauce, and I thought it was the perfect balance of tart and sweet. And the maple gave it a really unique undertone. I thought this was great, and plan to make it often for holiday meals. I suggest though, using a higher quality syrup. I have made it with 3 different kinds of syrup, and the better the syrup quality, the better the sauce has turned out. Cheap syrup doesn't do it justice.

Pauline Werner's Beef Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
This is a great stew recipe as is, but I made some modifications, and its now a staple at our house. I don't dredge the beef in flour before browning, and I omitted the bay leaf and barley (my hubby isn't a fan of either in his stew). My hubby snuck in the kitchen and spiked it with half a packet of beef stew seasoning once -- I was horrified at first! -- but it gave it some oomph. Also, I added some (about a Tbs, maybe?) worchestershire sauce and a dash of crushed red pepper for some zing. At the very end of cooking (the last 3-5 minutes), I stir in about a cup of frozen peas. In my opinion, it makes the stew. But even without all the modifying, I have to say, its a great recipe as-is!

Summer Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
This was awesome!! I was in the mood for something filling without the meat, and this was perfect! I love that it is full of veggies and not overly-heavy on the beans or spices - a nice change of pace from traditional chili! This one is getting added to the rotation, for sure!! Very yummy! :)

French Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
Everything about this recipe is a winner! I made this for a potluck alongside bruschetta, and everyone was raving about it. When I first got there, someone even commented that it looked like it was a fresh bakery baguette. I made the dough in the bread machine, but otherwise followed the instructions to a T. I love that this recipe has the directions on how to shape the loaf; I have never been able to figure that out on my own. This recipe was so straight-forward, easy, pretty, and delicious!!! Definitely a winner!!
