No-Cook Eggnog Ice Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2013
We love this! It is our standard ice-cream recipe. When we don't have eggnog, we use 2 cups of whole milk and a packet of instant pudding in place of the eggnog (just measure 2 cups of milk, add the pudding mix and whisk to blend, then add the 2 cups of cream). We do sometimes skip the vanilla depending on the flavor we've chosen. Right now we have strawberry in the maker and didn't use the vanilla. This also freezes perfectly - you cannot tell it was made without a cooked custard! Just like store-bought but so much better!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2012
I use the filling and frosting recipe from here and it is fabulous! A tip so that the filling does not run all over is to add 2 tsp. corn starch or xanthan gum to the brown sugar/cinnamon. It makes it gooey and it will stay inside the dough better.

Hunts® Chicken with Mediterranean Vegetables

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2012
I know so many dislike when a recipe is reviewed that wasn't followed, but with some tweaks, this was amazing! I heeded the comment that said the original recipe lacked flavor. I used the garlic salt on the chicken breasts as stated and added some Greek Seasoning to them as well. After cooking the breasts and taking them out of the pan, I added the onion and 2 small zucchini along with 6 sliced, fresh roma tomatoes to the pan. I sprinkled the whole thing with sea salt and some rosemary and cooked as directed. When I added the breasts back to the skillet, the breasts had let go of some juice and I poured that into the skillet, too. I cooked it all covered until the chicken was done. It made a lot of liquid! I maybe would thicken the liquid next time. We ate the veggies and some of the "juice" on barley and the chicken on the side. It was sooooo goood!

French Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
Got rave reviews! Easy to make and bakes up so wonderful and yummy. I followed the suggestion to add a tablespoon of olive oil and the bread was still so soft and moist the next day. I also followed the suggestion to toss ice-cubes in the oven when baking the bread (only I put the ice-cubes into a shallow pan on the bottom rack of my oven). This is going to be a regular in our household! UPDATE: I make this every week! We stopped buying bread. I don't split the dough, I just bake it as one huge loaf. Makes great sandwich bread as well as french toast. I cannot get over this wonderful bread!

Spelt Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
These are the first biscuits I've ever been successful at making! These are soooo good! Who knew spelt flour would lend itself to such perfect biscuits? I halved the recipe and it was perfect for our family of four. The texture is wonderful, the taste wonderful (I did cut the salt in half), and so easy! This is my biscuit recipe from now on!

Kay's Spaghetti and Lasagna Sauce

Reviewed: May 26, 2011
Perfect! I've been looking for this recipe forever and am so glad the search is over. Only "tweak" I made was halving the recipe except for the beef and garlic, using stevia in place of the sugar, and then added 1/2 tsp. marjoram. Love, love, LOVE this! Won't be buying canned or jarred sauce anymore.

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
Out of this world yummy!! We cooked exactly as directed but instead of shredding and serving on hoagie rolls, we shredded the meat and ate it in tortillas with fresh salsa and sour cream. Wow! Even my uber-picky son ate TWO. We also served it with a southwestern salad I made up. This is without a doubt going on our monthly rotation. I just can't rate it high enough - so so so yummy!

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2011
Love this! The only changes I made were to use ground turkey because that is what I had and I did not add any sugar (we try not to add sugar to anything ever because there is already plenty sugar in most things - even canned beans!). This was so fast, simple and fabulous!! It is going into the rotation of meals. Such a perfect comfort food for a snowy spring day.

Mocha Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
VERY yummy right out of the oven! IF any survive until tomorrow, I'll have to update how they are a day old. I did have to pour the batter into a bowl before adding the flour, salt, soda, and powder because my food processor was too small, but the consistency of the muffins was still absolutely lovely! I made two changes for family preference - I used 1 cup of whole wheat flour in place of 1 cup of all purpose white flour and I added chopped pecans. I LOVED using the food processor to mix the first 7 ingredients because I could use cold butter and it still made excellent batter. I think this is my favorite muffin recipe because it is so easy! Well done, Shelley!

Mom's Goulash in the Microwave

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
Very good! I made it on the stove like other viewers and it was still just as easy. LOVE the paprika - it's what so many other recipes are missing. I also omitted the caraway seed - no one in our family is a fan. Can't wait to eat leftovers.

Magical Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
If you love balsamic and are a fan of sweet vinaigrettes you will love this! I was looking for a dressing to go with greens, mandarin oranges, and pecans - this was perfect!! I was skeptical when I tasted the dressing alone, but on the salad it was fantastic!! I even ate a salad for breakfast because I just craved this dressing. I did make one change - I used sukonot (granulated whole sugar cane) instead of the brown sugar.

Chicken Pot Pie III

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
This was fantastic!! I gave it 4 stars because we REALLY didn't like the thyme, but I am definitely going to make this again and use a different seasoning (maybe a poultry seasoning?). I used the pre-rolled refrigerated crusts, canned chicken, frozen veggies thawed in the micro, and the full two cans of cream soups. Couldn't be easier or more perfect for a winter supper. Love it!

Beef Curry Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
Fabulous!! The recipe title states "SOUP" - it is not meant to be thick like stew - that is why it is SOUP. I used left over roast beef cut into cubes and omitted the vinegar. Other than that I followed the recipe and it was soooooooo good!! JUST the right amount of spice. I did not find it bland in the least, but the left roast was a heavily seasoned roast and maybe that had something to do with it? My family didn't like it, but they don't like curry. I love curry and I am LOVING this perfect soup!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
The taste if wonderful, but I can't get these off the cookie sheet as a cookie!! I have a ton of wonderful tasting crumbs. I refrigerated the dough thinking maybe I had let the butter get too soft, but that hasn't helped. UPDATE: I found success! IF YOUR COOKIES CRUMBLE: I finally finished off the dough by dropping the chilled dough by a scant tablespoon into mini-petite no-stick muffin tins (the ones that each cup holds about a tablespoon of batter). I baked them the recommended time and they came out as mini-petite muffins.

Egg and Cheese Puffs

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
These are wonderful! You can adjust the recipe to be just about whatever you want it to be. I hate making breakfast (and even eating it) but know it is so important. I made a batch of these substituting thawed, squeezed, chopped spinach and sauteed onions. They are perfect! They don't come out of the papers well, even though I sprayed the papers with non-stick cooking spray. Next time I will try making them in a well-seasoned stoneware muffin pan (without papers) and see if that helps.

BREAKSTONE'S Creamy Layered Enchilada Bake

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
This was incredible! I followed the directions exactly with the exception of using my own homemade Italian dressing and homemade taco seasoning. Even my picky eater ate it! This will definitely make its way into our regular rotation. Next time I will make it in the crockpot - I don't think it will change it much except the cheese won't be browned.

Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
I would give this more stars if I could!! The only change we make is using olive oil instead of vegetable and balsamic vinegar in place of the red wine. I have even used this with chicken. I've also cooked a roast in the slow cooker with this. I am addicted to it!

Best Greek Stuffed Turkey

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
This was okay. It wasn't what I had expected, but it was still okay. I added garlic because we just can't have anything without garlic. The broth from the pan was outstanding!! THE best I have ever tasted. I will make this again just for the broth!!

Grilled Sausage with Potatoes and Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2008
This was okay. It is a good, basic meal. Nothing bad about it, but also nothing Wow, either. It fit my son's tastes - he doesn't like fancy, spicy, or casseroles. I will do this again sometime because it is fun, but I will work with the flavors a bit more - maybe add Italian dressing like someone mentioned.

Good for You Greek Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2008
We love this! I actually have been making it on my own for months before seeing this recipe. The only difference with mine is that we toss this all with lettuce - not so Greek, I know, but we like it. We also omit the oregano quite often. My kids even love this salad. We top our Greek tacos with this. This is especially good with fresh produce from your own garden!
