Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 16, 2014
I made this to use up the chicken from a leftover roasted chicken. I didn't have high expectations, because I new this was a quick weekday meal, as described. Even after my husband and I had mixed up all the ingredients in the bowl, we thought, "well at least it'll fill up our bellies." I am pleasantly surprised to say how well this turned out. It didn't taste close to what our "taste test" was before it was put together and baked. My family loved this and I'll be making this monthly. It was very satisfying. I'd put this up there with Mac n' Cheese comfort food. ** I added 10 minutes to the baking time.

White Bread For The Bread Machine

Reviewed: May 8, 2014
I have made this recipe (unaltered) twice this week already. It is a keeper. Beautiful, the best I have ever made in my machine. This recipe is 5 stars. **Suggestions and comments.. I have also altered this recipe. However, my rating is on the unaltered version. I also made this with all purpose flour. It did not rise as well. In fact it was about 30 percent smaller. Of course, that made it dense. But, it was still yummy. I also made this with olive oil instead of vegetable oil. It was a tiny bit smaller, but the taste was even better. I read some reviews that suggested decreasing the amount of salt for taste. I realize that salt adds flavor. It also governs the power of the yeast. Without salt your bread will have a coarser quality because it rose too fast. Too little salt will make the dough rise fast that it will fall before it is done baking. Too much salt will kill the yeast. Salt also helps the bread from getting stale to fast.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2007
Awesome recipe. I've made it many times. The whole family loves it. I bake it in my cast iron pancake griddle. Also, I use all-purpose flour, because that's what I always have on hand. The bad review that said it "poured out" when they used all-purpose flour.... doesn't make any sense. I'm thinking they might have gotten distracted and altered the recipe by mistake. I wish they would try it again. I highly recommend this recipe.

Pineapple Chicken Delight

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2007
I hate to be the one to say this. But I feel that it's necessary. My entire family did not care for this. I fought with my children to eat this, and my husband said "well at least our stomachs will be full". I think I'm a pretty good cook, but it just tastes like cooked chicken and potatoes with a bottle of barbeque sauce dumped on it. That's it. No offense to the seemingly nice lady who submitted the recipe. It just did not suit our taste. P.S. I followed the directions as is and did not make any alterations.

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2006
You absolutely do not need to change anything in this recipe. Just remember to let your butter softened a little bit before you begin. Remember always to mix butter and sugar first, then Peanut butter, egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, salt and oatmeal. Add to wet ingredients. When dropping by spoonfuls on the sheet, I pressed mine down a little bit. This recipe is perfect just the way it is. I had to kick my family out the the kitchen! We needed to save some for SANTA!

Sweet Potato Souffle I

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2006
I made this souffle for Thanksgiving. My entire extended family loved it. I especially liked it because it had coconut. I wasn't able to make it with nuts because of a particular guest. The coconut was a nice addition instead of just the butter and sugar. I have a request to prepare this with our Christmas Ham dinner. Super easy to make.

Jam Filled Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2006
I can't believe how easy this recipe was. I followed it to a T and didn't change a thing. Some others explained that you'll need less flour. I did not. Nor was it crumbly when I rolled it into balls. It was a perfect texture. If I were to make a guess, I'd say they didn't let their butter sit out before they used it. I let mine out for about an hour before I made the cookie dough. Then I mixed it very well with the sugar. They will be a must on my list for Christmas cookies from now on.

Pizza Pan Oatmeal Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2006
Great recipe. I doubled the recipe and spread the batter in a 13 inch (throw away) aluminum foil pizza pan. I decorated it with icing for My daughter's birthday and sent it to school. Young children aren't always fond of cake in school. But they always love chocolate chip cookies! The teacher told me that it was alot less mess for her too. Great recipe. ** Update, this pizza pan cookie isn't really something I'd take to work... it really is just "good kid food."
