Rugelach

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
Yummy. My first batch didn't cook all that well, so I upped the temp to 375 degrees and cooked in 2nd to top shelf only. Worked well. I baked in a confection gas oven in case it makes a difference. Really yummy though. Look impressive enough to give for gifts.

Cabbage Beef Soup

Reviewed: May 19, 2007
Wondeful and healthy. I used pinto instead of kidney beans as I've read pintos have more nutritional value. I used diced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce and added two teaspoons of diced garlic. I cut the cumin to avoid the "chili" comments a few had shared. I also used chicken broth instead of water. I served this over brown rice, again because it's a whole grain, and it was so yummy. Great recipe that you can throw together in a few minutes and allow to cook all day. I did 8 hours on low and then it was on warm for about 2 hours. It was perfect.

Savory Crescent Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
Delicious. The only thing I changed was that I used reduced fat cream cheese. Still turned out wonderful and you couldn't tell the difference. I also didn't put the croutons on top. Wonderful and great reviews from my kids too. Thanks for the recipe.

Portuguese Sweet Bread I

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2008
Beautiful loaf of bread with a great texture. I made it exactly as the recipe called for and won't change a thing next time I make it again. Because I will definitely make this again.

Crispy Chicken Strips

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
Really good and really easy. My kids loved these. I used garlic potato flakes because that's what I had on hand and also dipped in regular eggs because I didn't have the egg substitute. We dipped in ranch, ketchup and sweet and sour sauce. I served it an asian pasta salad. Definitely a keeper.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2007
5 stars and then some. This was so good. My kids gave it 5 stars too. I did make a few changes though based on what I had on hand. I also decided to add a little liquid while cooking the chicken as I noticed it looked like it was getting dry quickly. Here are my changes/additions: - added @ 1/2 cup chicken broth with chicken and butter - used a packet of stroganoff mix in place of italian dressing - added another @ 1/2 cup chicken broth after chicken was cooked - used reduced fat cream cheese Turned out great!

Anna's Amazing Easy Pleasy Meatballs over Buttered Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
Really, really good and really, really easy. I made the meatballs from scratch. I used about 1.5 pounds of ground beef, 3/4 of a diced onion, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup bread crumbs, @ 3 teaspoons of diced garlic, 1 teaspoon italian seasoning, salt, pepper, a little onion powder and a little seasoning salt. I baked them for 25 mins on a broiler pan so the fat would drip off. Once I added the meatballs to the sauce (I originally made a half batch of sauce since I only made 1.5 lbs of meat) I decided I wanted more sauce so added another can of cream of celery and then added 2 beef bullion cubes and about half a packet of dry onion soup mix since I didn't have any more canned onion soup. I also added one soup can full of water. I cooked the whole pot on high for about 3.5 hours on high and it was really delicious. The only thing we felt it needed was more salt. We'll most definitely have this again.

Awesome Bow Tie Pasta

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
I thought this was delicious. As suggested by others, I used white balsamic vinegar to avoid turning the pasta brown. I used grape/cherry tomatoes sliced in half and mediterranean flavored feta cheese. I made it to serve tomorrow so mixed up extra dressing in case it needs it. It was delicious today, so can't imagine that it will be even better tomorrow. Yummy!

Mini Crescent Dogs

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
I make these almost every Christmas Eve and they are always a hit and are never around for long. I'm not sure where I learned this, but I serve them with a mayo mustard dip. I take maybe a cup of mayonaise and just stir in maybe 1/4 (total est.) and stir it. I add the mustard in small batches until I achieve the taste I'm looking for where you can taste the mustard, but it's not overwhelming. The dip always goes over really well too. My sister likes Miracle Whip instead of mayo so we make a batch using it in place of the mayo too. Always a hit!

Blueberry French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
Oh my word! This is so good. It's reasonably easy to prepare, and very impressive. The blueberry sauce adds just the right touch, although the kids preferred it with regular maple syrup. We enjoyed this for our Christmas morning brunch and I will definitely make it a staple for our future Christmas brunches.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2008
Really tasty and very simple. I didn't have beef broth so used I boullion cube disolved in water. The flour is critical to this recipe as it gives the meat a creamier and wonderful texture. My kids loved it too. Definitely a keeper.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
Decadent and oh so sinful. So good. I couldn't quite get them to rise after rolling them out, so I preheated my oven to 200 degress, shut it off, and then put the rolls in the oven with a towel over them while the oven cooled down. It worked perfectly and they rose beautifully. I also used just regular flour because I didn't have bread flour and they turned out just fine. I'll definitely be making these again and again and again. Thanks for the recipe! ONE LAST THING..... Since there's no way we could eat these at once, I made the icing and save it in a plastic container and then we heated the rolls as we ate them and then spread the icing on after we heated each. So good! UPDATE!!!! Just made these again. Heavenly. Turned out perfect again. Letting them rise in a semi warm (definitely not hot) is definitely the way to go.

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
These were really good and flavorful. i didn't tell my teenager they were baked and not fried until after we ate. I did blow it by not spraying the pan before banking. Sort of a "duh" kinda thing, but I guess I was thinking they wouldn't stick because of the olive oil. We also all added salt to them at the table although I still won't add more salt when I cook them because salting to each person's own taste is easy enough to do at the table. Really good, inexpensive and easy recipe. A definite keeper. Served with Philly cheesesteak sandwiches with garlic mayo from this site. Outstanding meal.

Apricot Barbecued Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
Definitely a keeper. This was so easy and so tasty. My daughters gave it 5 stars each too. I did follow the advice of others and double the sauce and also added a bit more apricot jam than it called for because I was looking for more of a fruity taste. Delicious. We'll be making this one again and again. Served with steamed rice and a side of broccoli.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2008
How can I not give this one 5 stars. The bread is heavenly. I added 1 tsp of vanilla as others have suggested, and cut the recipe in half and made one large loaf. I also sprinkled some chopped walnuts on top and sprinkled it with a little sugar before baking. It turned out wonderful. What a great recipe. Thanks for the post.

Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
Wow! This is a wonderfully simple easy with awesome results. I cooked mine in a wok and didn't have a single burnt piece and almost every kernal popped. I'll never do popcorn any other way. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

Busy Day Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
This couldn't have been easier and the outcome was wonderful. My kids are off of school for the holidays so I am trying to keep some interesting things on hand for them to eat. I had a whole chicken, which I've never cooked one before, and was looking for something super easy that they would like. Totally scored with this one. I used a K.C. Masterpiece's brown sugar BBQ sauce. I didn't even measure it, I totally eyeballed it and viola, it turned out amazing. I think it took about 1 minute total to prepare including rinsing chiken. Thanks for the recipe.

Single Crust Peach Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
I'm no pie expert, but with all the input on this one, I couldn't miss. I actually used frozen peaches that I thawed and drained. I tossed the peaches with flour as others suggested, and added a little brown sugar to the peaches too. They just weren't very sweet. Then I doubled the crumble recipe as other suggested and added both cinamon and nutmeg. I had plenty of crumble left to completely cover the pie. I cooked it 450 for 10 mins then 350 for 40 mins and it was perfect. I used the middle rack in my oven and wrapped the edges of the crust with foil until about ten mins before it was done. Oh yeah, this recipe is a keeper especially since I found a way to use frozen peaches. thanks for the recipe.
