Caramel Frosting VI

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2013
Great recipe- but I had the opposite problem that other commenters did: It set up REALLY fast, and was much more of a frosting than a glaze. Didn't make enough to frost a 3 layer cake, and was too thick to spread down the sides. However, just used it on the top- and it was Amazing! Put it on the Pecan Pie cake from Pintrest. I think maybe I beat it too long, and that might be why it got so much thicker.

Chicken Salad Panini

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
Really tasty! Added a smidge of chopped red onion to the salad, and omitted the pecans. Good hot or cold! Used thick slices of french bread, buttering the outsides- will make again!

Turkey Avocado Panini

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2012
Even the kids LOVED it! Did add bacon and thinly sliced red onion, and had to use white american cheese. Also sprinkled with some season-all jus to add a little extra spice. WONDERFUL!

Shrimp Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
Followed the recipe pretty close, with a few changes. For veggies, I shredded some carrots, added edamame and chopped yellow bell pepper. The only other change I made was cooking the egg in a bit of oil in a seperate pan- the pan was so full I just couldn't fit it! Added it in at the end with the sauce already cooked- VERY GOOD! I did not add the extra salt, either, and didn't miss it at all.

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
I used 3 cans of 7.5 oz biscuits, instead of the larger ones. Halved the remaining ingredients, because I didn't need as much sugar/cin mix or sauce. Only took 30 min. to cook in the bundt pan- wonderful!! This will be a new family favorite!

Clark's Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2008
Did 2 9" pies in deep dish pie shells. I also did some leftover diced chicken instead of the ham, because I didn't have any ham. EXCELLENT recipe! I did layer, according to the directions, but I think it would work as well with just mixing it all together.

Pork Chops with Sour Cream and Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
I made a few changes, and this was fantastic! First, I heated 1 tbsp. EVOO with one clove pressed fresh garlic in the pan until it was golden and fragrent. I then added some dried rosemary, salt and pepper, and some dried onions. I let all that simmer together for about 3 min. Next, I mixed some Nature's seasoning (or any season all you like) with the flour- it was pretty heavily seasoned. I then seasoned both sides of the chops with the Nature's seasoning before dredging in the flour. Before adding the chops to the browning pan, I added 1 tbsp. of butter to the oil mixture and stirred everything up. Then I browned the chops for about 5 min. on both sides. Once done, I mixed the soup and sour cream together, adding some garlic salt and a pinch more rosemary to the soup mix. I put that on top of the chops, covered, and lowered the temp. to "low" and let it simmer for about 50 min. I turned them every 15 min, as suggested. Served over rice- WONDERFUL!

French Ham Cheese and Egg Fondue Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
Tasted good, but didn't fluff up as much as I'd hoped. Next time, I think I'll use regular white bread rather than the day-old french bread loaf. Also- cooking time is short- I added an egg only, and it wasn't done after an hour- needs probably an hour 15. Tasty thought- I'd like to try it again!

Egg Drop Soup II

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2008
good start- I did add a couple of drops of sesame oil to it. Would even be good with a bit of cabbage or carrots in it.

Banana Crepes

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2008
I'd give this one 10 stars if it was an option! This is one of the best recipes on this site. I made it this morning as a special valentine's breakfast for the family- served it with fresh fruit on the side. SOOOO GOOD! It was so easy- this is our new company/special occasion breakfast- more fun that tne traditional breakfast casserole, and less effort!

Easy Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
Awesome! I didn't have any ham, so I used chopped chicken instead- very good with the broccoli! My kids also helped with this one, it's a great one for "kids in the kitchen". I'll be making it often, varying the ingredients for a different taste. Maybe bacon, mushroom, and tomato!

Quiche (Southern Egg Pie)

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
I let my kids help make this one- they loved it! Very easy, I didn't have any ham, though- so I subbed some chopped chicken. Really good- my whole kitchen smells awesome! I also just made it in a square glass baking dish, and it worked fine. Temp & cooking time was right on. I'll be using this again and varying the ingredients for fun.

Orange Cream Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2007
this was good- used it for a little girl's tea party. It's very rich for a fruit salad, though- a little goes a long way! I used pineapple, blueberries, banana, strawberries, and mandarine oranges. Doesn't last more than one day- not good leftovers.

Smushed Apples and Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: May 26, 2007
this was good, but very different. We liked having a change of pace on side dishes, but I wouldn't fix it too often.
