French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2014
Absolutely excellent and very multi-purpose!!! I've been trying to figure out a way to be able to make just enough rolls for my husband and I, since we never eat the leftovers of a fully batch. I had an idea from frozen rolls my father-in-law had used, but I still wanted the from-scratch rolls I knew I could make. OH. MY. GOODNESS. These are exactly what I've been looking for! I decided to just risk it the first time and made a double batch, and it made about 30 rolls. I shaped all the dough, put two trays of a dozen each in the freezer and cooked the rest right away. We had the fresh ones with baked potatoes and turkey loaf, then the next day I thawed a few more to eat with soup and they came out perfectly (thawed for about an hour, I put them in the oven on warm and they rise nicely). As delicious as they are plain, the one that completely sold me was this morning when I decided to try a version of monkey bread in a muffin tin. I need to tweak the cooking time and portions per muffin, but it is SO YUMMY! and I'm ecstatic that I can make monkey bread in small amounts!!

Tater Tot Casserole III

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2014
just made this, it's really good but I gave it 4 stars because of the things I changed. I left out all the butter, only had about 8oz of sour cream on hand and a cup of grated cheese. I was surprised that there was no actual meat in the recipe so I boiled 2 large chicken breasts and shredded them up to add with the tots. I also sauteed the onion and added cayenne instead of paprika since my husband likes things spicy. He loves it, and the spice is not too bad for me (I'm a wimp). I topped it off with more grated cheese that hubby brought home, threw it under the broiler, and huzzah! Totally making this again. It's really good, I like it with a bit of ketchup, and I would probably add some bacon and call it a breakfast casserole :)

Chicken Cordon Bleu Sandwich

Reviewed: May 11, 2014
So, this is going to sound a little weird, but I just made this into a casserole. My kitchen is almost bare, but I had chicken breasts and my husband loves chicken cordon bleu, so I decided to try and cobble something together. Hubby gave it a "very good" so I thought I'd share! I followed the directions, for the most part, but I only had Buddig ham sandwich meat and some Irish cheddar or something (the wrapper is gone, so I'm not sure. It was just a very sharp cheese!). I doubled the recipe and used panko bread crumbs with the butter as a base in a 7x11 glass pan, chopped chicken next, and then my crazy ham & cheese mixture. As I said, I followed the directions, but didn't have Dijon so I mixed some yellow mustard with a bit of dry mustard. I poured/spooned the mix over the chicken and topped it off with another layer of panko, and in the oven it went! I like it fairly well myself, but I have a low spice tolerance so I'd probably do a little less mustard next time, and I admittedly went a little crazy with the panko XD but overall it's a success, more than just edible, and I definitely want to have it with french bread and "real" ham sometime!!!

Batter White Bread

Reviewed: May 8, 2014
I was so glad to find this recipe, it is such a blessing! I have no mixer, no bread machine, and needed to work with very limited ingredients. This fit the bill perfectly. I followed the recipe, but I think I rushed it a bit and it could have risen a touch longer. As some other reviewers mentioned, my bread browned very quickly and I actually turned the oven off for the last ten minutes. I cut into a warm loaf and had a couple slices with butter and honey: awesome! I want to try using oil and less salt, as some reviews mentioned, and I might try wheat flour too. Overall I'm thinking this will replace store-bought bread for my family :)

Michelle's Marvelous Mini Meat Loaves

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2014
Just made this! I made a few changes: I sauteed the onion, and and added some minced garlic too. I put a couple dashes of soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce, and put the loaves in a muffin tin :) I'm really, really happy with the results! The only problem I had was that I put a little too much of the sauce on top of the first tin load, so there wasn't enough for all of them. But they taste amaaaaaazing!!

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2013
My first try at making scones, and it went great! I used the beckygentile variation because I had chocolate chips, and more sour cream and sugar sounded good to me! I doubled the batch and just used a whole bag of regular chips instead of minis. I didn't need to flour the surface I put the dough on, and actually had a little pile of flour left over in the bowl, so I'll probably do scant cups next time. The texture was amazing with the extra sour cream and I can't wait to make them again!

Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
very yummy, I made a double batch and got 4 dozen muffins. only problem I had was running out of the streusel about halfway through, but that usually happens with me and streusel :) the only thing I changed was that I added some quick oats to the streusel (about 1/2 cup, more or less). this was an attempt to make it go further, but it also made a yummy little crunch! oh, and I added a few dashes of cinnamon into the batter, too :) om nom nom....

Bev's Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2012
I thought this was great, very simple and it turned out well for me. I'm not a huge fan of chocolate, but even with adding an extra tbsp of cocoa (after consulting with my 5y.o. niece) it wasn't too strong or too sweet. I didn't feel like making a pie crust so I used a simple shortbread crust and it complimented it nicely. Not having to roll out dough is always a plus :) Otherwise I followed the directions exactly, and the texture was awesome, very smooth and creamy, but not a pudding. Due to my own inexperience I had some problems with the meringue, but I've done my research and I know what I did wrong, and I'll definitely be making this again!
