Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2014
This was indeed very good, but as others mentioned, this is on the salty side. Next time I will use reduced-sodium soy sauce. I used Sriracha sauce for the hot sauce, which added a nice heat. There were also a couple of reviewers who remarked the sauce was thin, and that was my initial reaction, but I turned up the heat to allow the sauce to come to a nice bubbly boil, and soon enough the sauce thickened nicely. I was hesitant to serve this to my sweetheart as he is spice shy, but surprise, he loved it and actually went back for seconds. I will definitely be making this again!

Curried Chicken Tea Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2013
Truly a lovely, elegant chicken salad. I made this for a party and I overhead the hostess tell one of her guests, "She's like a gourmet cook or something." That's far from the truth, but it's nice to be able to take the mundane and make it extraordinary. Lots of texture from chicken, to the mayo, to the dried cranberries, as well as a nice crunch due to the apples and pecans. The curry, which I had doubts about as I'm not a curry fan, it added a nice subtle flavor that makes you go, "hmmmm, what is that?" and I now wouldn't even begin to consider omitting it. So okay, you probably won't want to serve this to a bunch of burly guys watching the Super Bowl, but it's perfect for those occasions when you need something elegant and delicious. Take the time to find some beautiful tea rolls and put these out on a gorgeous platter. I think this would be nice without the lettuce and served in prebaked phyllo shells.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2013
Pretty darned good! Tender, flavorful, and a good way to cook turkey when it's too hot to turn on the oven. I took the terrific advice of other reviewers and added some celery, onion and carrot to the bottom of the crockpot. Smeared butter over the turkey and sprinkled the onion soup over and inside the turkey breast. Added a generous splash of chicken broth that I had on hand. Made gravy with the juices and served the vegetables on the side. Greeted my sweetheart after a long trip away and flight with the delicious aromas of this filling the kitchen as he walked in, fatigued, just wanting the comforts of being home again.He took in a deep breath, smiled broadly and said "No place smells or tastes as delicious as home!"

Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
The sauce was runny and the flavor was bland. I had high hopes for this recipe as I am a great fan of chicken cordon bleu, but I found this recipe to be a disappointment considering the amount of work involved. I will not be making this again

Condensed Soup Mix

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
I tried this, and it was just okay with me. I'm not sure what herb it is that ruined it for me, probably the basil, but when I used this to make my favorite hash brown casserole, the flavor was way off and the casserole virtually ruined. This mix may be okay with some casseroles but is not really a substitute for the canned.

Kris' Amazing Shredded Mexican Beef

Reviewed: May 5, 2013
I made the recipe as written and found it just a tad too picante for us, but still very good. There's only the two of us, so I used a 2 lb bottom round roast and took the author's advice about the spices. We're glad for the leftovers. This made delicious burritos!

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2013
Don't even think of trying another frosting recipe--this one is perfect! Thanks to the hint of other reviewers I used half real butter and half shortening, and I think it's the addition of cream that makes this frosting tops. This frosting handles beautifully, takes like a dream. It DOES make a boatload, but it can be covered in an airtight container and the remainder used in a couple of days. You won't want to waste this. I received tons of compliments on this and when paired with my favorite cakes, well just let me say, happiness abounds. The addition of butter and the use of real vanilla extract brings this from a bright white to an antique white color, but I much prefer the flavor.

Bacon and Date Appetizer

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2012
Made these for a wedding reception that was finger foods only, and these went down a complete storm! Delicious combination of sweet and salty. Make more than you think you'll need; people can't stay away from them.

Microwave Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
I had this at a friend's house and have been enamored of it ever since. She, and now I, peels back the husk, remove the corn silk, rinse under cold water rubbing off any stray bits of silk, and bring the husk back up over the cob. Put on a plate (or not) and microwave for 2-3 mnutes. All that wonderful corn flavor is retained, not boiled away in a pot of water. Just delicious/!!

Amish Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
Moist, sweet, raisin-y goodness. The cookie part tastes like chocolate chip cookie, but the raisins lend their own chewy texture and sweetness. I love that these are made with pantry items and the recipe is simple. In a lightly covered container, these beauties stayed moist for several days. My sweetie couldn't keep his hands out of the cookie jar. Thanks, Marcia. These cookies will be enjoyed and shared many times. A keeper recipe!!

Oatmeal Scotchies in a Pan

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2012
Very sweet but VERY good! These wonderful cookies scream for milk, smiles. We couldn't stay away from them, even enjoying them for breakfast the next morning. Really, how bad can they be with oatmeal as a main ingredient, smiles. This will be made again and again. THANK YOU!

Early American Eggnog

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2011
Smooth flavors; the liquors seem to quite disappear in all that luscious cream and milk, and except for the whiff of brandy and sherry (the two scents most discernible to me), one might be lead to believe that there was no alcohol at all. If anything, this eggnog is a tad too milky for me, hence the 4 star rating.

Amazing Spinach Artichoke Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2011
This was a delicious addition to our Thanksgiving table. I took the advice of another reviewer and reduced the amount of spinach, but in the future, I think I will follow the recipe as this dish was VERY rich with all that gorgeous cream and parmesan cheese. This will be a repeat for those special occasion meals when calories don't count! Thank you for sharing this.

Octoberfest Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
My Sweetie-Pi was all aglow with this, saying over and over again that it was a keeper, as he served himself multiple helpings. I cooked this in the slow cooker for about 3.5 hrs, and the roast was fork tender. Served with mashed potatoes and honey glazed carrots. Made a beautiful presentation. Personally, I thought the gravy lacked flavor except for the sharp flavor of the ale I used (and as someone else pointed out, each beer adds its own unique flavor), as well as the strong mustard flavor. I felt it needed another spice or herb to balance out the flavors, perhaps rosemary or ginger? I wish I were better with herbs and how to combine them. Anyway, I used my old standby, Gravy Master, to deep the color and flavor, and it helped considerably. Perhaps some Better Than Boullion would have been a good addition. As another reviewer mentioned, the onions layered on top of the roast did little for them. Those that cooked in the broth flavored the gravy and gave the onions an appealing, appetizing color. Also, 1 tablespoon cornstarch and water was not enough to thicken the gravy to my taste, so I added more. To me, this recipe is a 3, my Sweetie-Pi thinks it's a 5, hence the 4 star rating.

Slow Cooker Spare Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2011
This recipe was my very first attempt at making BBQ ribs and it was met with resounding success. I used a commercial BBQ sauce for convenience as some others did but now know I prefer my own homemade sauce. Brilliant idea to parboil these first. The aroma while cooking was virtually irresistible. The meat was fall off the bone tender, rich and deep BBQ flavor, not just a glaze. In a family of known picky eaters, there was not left. Thank you, Claton, for sharing this excellent recipe so that we may all enjoy the benefit of your success.

Diane's Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2011
In my imagination, this recipe was created by a frugal housewife, who during the bleak and barren days of winter, combined the remaining vegetables stored in her root cellar to feed her family something filling and delicious. In days of greater abundance this recipe is still satisfying, comforting, and delicious. I made it exactly as written and my beloved and I enjoyed every bite. This will be made many, many times. thank you Diane. This is a keeper!!

Slow Cooker Chicken Parisienne

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2011
Sorry, this recipe was a disappointment to us. I found this recipe to be lacking in flavor, even after adding a bit of sherry, parmesan, and extra mushrooms. The gravy looked curdled but I fixed that by whisking it smooth. I really wanted to like this after reading all the flattering reviews, but would not make this again.

Bill Clinton's Lemon Chess Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
This is my first ever chess pie, after having only read about them, and I was glad I tried this as I'm a huge lemon fan. This will not replace my fav, lemon meringue, but for those who enjoy lemony things, this is a delight.
