Chocolate Cherry Drops

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2002
I didn't use the exact recipe. Because I'm allergic to walnuts, I added almonds instead (sliced almonds broken into tinier pieces) and also substituted a tiny bit of the vanilla extract for almond extract, which worked out nicely. Would make these again.

Chicken and Broccoli Braid

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2002
This recipe was a huge hit with company! Since I'm not a dill weed fan, I was going to bypass using it. Instead, I only added 1 tsp., and I'm glad I did. It wouldn't have tasted as good without the dill. Easy recipe to make substitutions to the filling (ham and cheese, vegetarian, etc).

Pepperoni Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2002
This always goes over well at my parties - there's never any left over. I usually use Pillsbury French Loaf instead of the frozen bread dough (it takes less time to cook), and I have substituted turkey pepperoni for the regular. I actually like the turkey pepperoni better, because it make the pepperoni bread less greasy. My most finicky eaters never knew the difference.

Bacon Chicken II

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2002
It was easy to make and pretty good. Not the best dish ever, but I'll probably use the recipe again when I need something in a hurry. If you need an easy, no fuss recipe, try this one. The disappointing part was that none of the bacon got crispy. I suggest putting the bacon on top instead of the remaining sauce.

Chicken Slop

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2002
It was OK - good for when you're in a hurry. I suggest using garlic flavored croutons in this recipe.

Chocolate Toffee Crunch Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2002
I just LOVE this recipe!!! I make these anytime I have to take a dessert someplace. I've never met a single person who didn't like these toffee bars. It's worth the pain of stirring the toffee forever when you hear all of the rave reviews. BIG HINT: I use sliced almonds on top instead of walnuts - it makes the cookies look beautiful! Many people thought I had bought them from a bakery - they looked professionally done with the almonds on top.

Original Nestle® Toll House® Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2002
Of course they're great - but also equally as good without the nuts. Try substituting a portion of the chocolate chips with butterscotch chips. Yummy!

Tequila Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2002
Made the dish as exactly specified in the recipe, and wasn't that fond of it -- basically because the tequila flavor was way too overpowering. I would definitely try the recipe again, though, with some moderations.

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2002
This was a great recipe - we spiced it up a bit, but it was easy and well received.

Bob's Stuffed Banana Peppers

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2002
These peppers were pretty good. We had to all some additional seasonings to the recipe to give a little boost.

Slow Cooker Scalloped Potatoes with Ham

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2002
Not sure what I did wrong with this recipe, but I had to leave it in the slow cooker for an extra 45 minutes in order to fully cook the potatoes. This recipe was OK, but not tops on our family's list.

Baked Spaghetti Corn

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2002
I used linguine noodles because I didn't have spaghetti at the time. My husband looked at the dish and announced that he was going to hate it. Although he'd rather die that admit when he's wrong, he still went back for seconds. As he as a very picky eater, guess this means the recipe's a keeper. As recommended by other reviewers, I used less margarine and covered mine, cooking it for 50 minutes. In addition, I took it out of the oven twice while it was cooking to stir -- which I highly recommend -- that kept from having sections of undercooked, crunchy noodles.

Apple Maple Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2002
Make this recipe one evening to take to work the next day. I doubled it and put it in a 9x13 pan. The only change I made to the recipe is the addition of a dash of both cinnamon and nutmeg to the topping (just enough to taste a hint of each). Warmed it in the microwave (uncovered) when I got it to work, and the topping was amazingly still crunchy and crisp like it had come right out of the oven. Everyone loved it - it all went really quickly. Great recipe in the autumn when you have lots of apples to use up!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies VIII

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2002
Tested one while I was baking them and discovered that they are not sweet at all, so I made some icing as suggested to brush on top of them. That helped quite a bit in terms of favor. I've never made "special diet" treats before, so I'm not sure if there might be a better recipe out there.

Chocolate Chip Cookies for Special Diets

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2002
From reading other reviews, I guess that these cookies were supposed to end up spongy and soft. I thought maybe I hadn't cooked them enough. The taste is very good - just don't expect them to be similar to regular chocolate chip cookies. (They also didn't come off the baking sheet very easily without falling apart a bit on the bottom. I will try greasing the sheet next time.)

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2003
We made they cookies with some slight alterations. We wrapped the cookie dough all the way around the p.b. cup before cooking. This made for a less messy cookie, as there was no chocolate to ooze all over, but it made less cookies this way and took a bit longer to prepare.

Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2003
This went over well, but some who tried it felt it needed more of a sauce to it (they thought it was too dry), so they added some BBQ sauce to theirs. Perhaps I used too much beef.

Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2003
I felt the recipe as written was just OK. After making some changes, we liked it much better. Added sauted onions, garlic powder, & parsley flakes. I also sprinkled some beef boullion crystals into soup mixture to give it more of a beefy flavor. Had to substitute cr. of chicken for the celery, but tasted just as good. Added some cubed potatoes to the mixture before mashing the rest, which we liked. But I definitely recommend using instant potatoes instead - cuts the prep time in more than half. If you really like the cubes added to the beef mixture, you can always throw in some frozen hash browns - same result.

Pan Fried Catfish Filets

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2003
This recipe was good. As always when frying, be sure the oil is hot enough before adding your fish. Otherwise, you'll end up with a not-so-tasty disaster (which I did the on my first attempt at this recipe).

Apple Walnut Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2003
Good recipe. I used only all-purpose flour, as I didn't have wheat flour, and it turned out fine. Baked mini-loaves instead of two regular sized. If you do that, you'll need to cut baking time from 70 minutes to about 40 minutes or so. Keep checking frequently once you've hit 35 minutes to make sure the sides don't burn.
