Simple Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
This is a really good simple and CHEAP chili to make. I took some to a pot luck last week and everyone ate it up. Tastes extra good with some sharp cheddar, red onion and a dallop of sour cream on top with corn bread on the side.

Extra Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2007
This is really good hummus. I did reduce the cumin down closer to 1-1.5 teaspoons. I added 3 cloves of garlic and a good helping of lemon. Very tasty. This would be a great hummus to "dress up" with roasted bell peppers, sundried tomatos or fresh herbs.

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
This was so good! I also tossed the beef cubes (I used a kosher brisket, which I cut up myself) with flour, salt and pepper. I used Better then Bouilion, vegetable base rather then cubes. I also was using left over relish tray veggies, so I had baby carrots (which I cut into thirds) and celery sticks (which I chopped). I was using small white potatoes and onions so I had to estimate sizes. Once I had added the veggies, I realized that I needed more broth so I added 4 more cups of water and four more teaspoons of BTB. I used 6 teaspoons of cornstarch, which thickened the broth a tiny bit but not a lot. If you want a very thick stew, I would double or triple the amount for sure. All in all, extremely tasty. I served mine with cheese biscuits (recipie in the Fanny Farmer cookbook).

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2007
This is a very good recipe, although I did make some changes. I used nonfat plain yogurt instead of sour cream. I also cooked everything using a little chicken broth rather then oil. I softened the veggies and garlic before adding the chicken and other ingrediants. I didn't use any water because it seemed watery enough. When I made the actual enchiladas, I used a straining spoon to get the chicken and veggies into the tortillas. I reserved the sauce and added 12 oz of enchilada sauce. I put this on top of the enchiladas. Very tasty!

Banana Nut Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2007
This is one of the best frostings I have EVER had! So delicious! I used it on fresh bananna cake with a vanilla custard filling. Thank you! I think this would also be delicious on a butter cookie or chocolate cake. It's almost like a bannana version of the frosting used for german chocolate cake.

Ginger Beef Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
This was very yummy! I think next time I will use more sauce. I also added one mandarin orange. Very tasty. This could easily be made with chicken or shrimp too.

Green Tomato Relish

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
This is an awesome recipe! I think I may have used a bit more tomatoes then called for...I didn't count because I had a lot of very little ones. I also did not drain the juices, I used them and everything seemed to come out fine. This recipe made 17 one pint jars for me. My DF who normally does not like relish piled this high on his hot dog. I am grateful for this recipe so all those end of the season tomatoes don't go to waste! Thank you!

Creole Gumbo

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2006
The gumbo was great but I changed a lot about the recipe to get it that way which is why I rate this 3 stars. I did boil the chicken with the onion, bell pepper and salted water. However, I only used two large chicken breast halves with the skin. I only boiled it for about twenty minutes. I took out the chicken, pulled off skin and bones. I put the skin and bones back into the pot and allowed to boil for another 20 minutes. I shredded the chicken. Then I drained the broth but reserved it (its chicken broth, I'm not throwing it away!) I made the roux and let it turn a deep reddish brown. I then added the chicken, sausage, onions & bell peppers and I used the broth I had made instead of water. This got and thick. I then added the shrimp, seasonings and I added a ton of Old Bay Seasoning! Its very good, I'm eating right now on top of steamed rice!

Wine Jelly

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2006
The flavor of this recipe is great but the consistency is not right for a jelly. It is more like a sauce. Taking warning from the other posters, I used 3 oz of liquid pectin and it is still not jelly consistency. I think I would use about 6 oz to get it to gel correctly. The flavor is very tasty though. I the leftovers of 3 bottles of wine I had around. Since I made 7 (8 oz) jars intended for gifts, I am going to market it as "wine sauce" to be used as topping for cheesecake, ice cream or chocolate cake. Or as a dipping sauce or marinade for chicken or shrimp. If you want to make this as a jelly, I would use 6 oz of liquid pectin.

Fish Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2006
This was very good. I used a little more chicken broth and butter then called for. I served this with homemade biscuits and my DF gobbled it up!

Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2006
I only used 1/2 a cup of sugar but I think that really messed up the consistency. Mine it very watery but good. Maybe next time I will add some cornstarch to thicken it up.

Canned Apple Pie Filling

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2006
This is a pretty good recipe. I cut the number of servings down to 14 because I didn't have a lot of apples on hand. It made 3 jars for me. I added more spices, including allspice and ginger. I think next time I would use less sugar. I used a pressure cooker to cook mine. It will be nice at Thanksgiving when I can just dump this into a crust but still call it homemade from scratch. Thanks for the recipe.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2006
This was SOOOO good! DF and I both had second helpings. I just used 2 1/2 cups of frozen mixed veggies rather then measure out and buy all of the veggies separately. I also used poultry seasoning in place of celery seed. I boiled the veggies and chicken in chicken broth and used that to make the gravy. I also made my own whole wheat pie crust. YUM-YUM!

Persimmon Bread II

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2006
This bread is delicious! Perfect for a brisk fall morning. I did make some adjustments to the recipe. First of all I cut it in half because it seemed like a lot. I was glad I did this because I still ended up with two normal sized loafs. Also, I added 1/4 teaspoon of ginger powder and 1 tsp of vanilla. I substituted almonds for walnuts and added 1/2 cup of chopped up prunes. I will definitely make this again! Thank you!

Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2006
This was a good recipe. I used homemade chicken broth and added 1/2 of a sweet potato. I recommend cooking the squash beforehand and scrapping out the contents rather then trying to peel it uncooked.
