Fabulous Fargozas

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
Very flavorful, moist and tender. I took the advice of another reviewer and sauteed the onion (I used a sweet onion) and garlic before mixing in. I used fontina, gruyere and parmesan cheeses. For the second batch, I substituted green chili instead of rosemary for added spice -- it was wonderful and I highly recommend! I want to add all sorts of things to these, maybe bacon since we have been eating them with scrambled eggs. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Sweet Potato Bread I

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
This bread is awesome. I took the advice of other reviewers and decreased the sugar to 3/4 cup white and 1/8 cup brown. I substituted pumpkin butter for oil like other reviewers suggested. For the flour, I used 3/4 cup wheat, 3/4 cup white and 1/4 cup oat. I baked this in square silicone baking cups and it came out cute, like little mini loaves. I thought this would be too similar to pumpkin bread, but it's different enough to stand out.

Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
These muffins are wonderful! I made a few tweaks to the recipe to suit my own taste: cut sugar back to 1 cup, will probably cut it a bit more next time as these tasted very sweet to me even with 1 cup, and omitted raisins because I forgot! I will add them next time. I sprinkled the tops with rolled oats instead of nuts and wheat germ. They are moist and filling. I can see they are going to disappear quickly, so I'm going to make a second batch to freeze!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Made with one and a half cups dark brown sugar and one half cup white sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of cream of tartar (both suggestions from other reviewers). These came out awesome: chewy insides, crispier outsides, spread out just right and taste wonderful. This will be my only chocolate chip recipe from now on.

Chicken Gruyere with Sauteed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
I love this dish. Have made it twice and it was a snap both times, yet tasted like I had slaved over the stove. I did not, and would not, change a thing.

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
I made this recipe exactly as written and the whole family loved it. I have made it twice this week, because it is so easy and makes a perfect quick lunch or dinner.

Kentucky Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
I was on the fence about whether to give these 4 or 5 stars, but my kids said to give them 5. These were really easy to make and came out very good, but they do need more salt in my opinion and the kneading time should be cut down. Like other reviewers, I knead my biscuit dough only 12 times, or until the dough holds together. I made these Christmas morning as the dough for pigs in blanket, instead of crescent rolls. They were a good, fast substitute (they were about 1/4 the work of crescent rolls).

Butter Icing for Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
I love this icing because it is so easy to make and it stays nice and soft on the inside while hardening enough to stack the cookies. I used it to ice the Nauvoo Gingerbread Cookies from this site. As some have pointed out, the icing is not totally white because of the vanilla, but it is not an unpleasant color. It looked perfect with the dark gingerbread cookies.

Nauvoo Gingerbread Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
These cookies taste wonderful, have a great texture, but best of all, the dough was easy to work with. I chilled it for exactly an hour, and it rolled out perfectly. I iced these using Butter Icing For Cookies, from this site. They were heavenly!

Beef Bourguignon II

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
This is a delicious, easy recipe. I didn't change much, I omitted the canned onions because it didn't appeal to me, and used a frozen baby peas and carrots mix instead of adding carrots. I used buffalo steak cut into cubes and it came out perfectly tender. I served this with the crescent rolls from this site: blue ribbon overnight rolls. This is the ultimate comfort food, yet fancy enough to serve at a nice dinner. I'm making it again for the family Christmas dinner.

Barbeque Beef Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
I agree that with some changes, this is a very good dish. I misread the recipe when I made it, and only used ONE 9 ounce box of cornbread, which was the perfect amount for a 9x13 casserole dish. I also used a full cup of barbecue sauce at the suggestion of other reviewers. My family loved it and ate the whole thing.

Soy Sauce Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
This was a good, tasty recipe that was easy to prepare. I used the leftover Thanksgiving turkey instead of chicken and it was great. Prepare as written, don't increase the rice or it will be too dry. 1/2 cup seems like not very much rice, but this makes a good size casserole that fed my family of 4 with generous portions.

Blue Ribbon Overnight Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
This was a great, easy recipe. I made some dough this morning for dinner, and those rolls were so good, I made two more batches before bed: one for cinnamon rolls in the morning, the other for pigs in blankets for lunch. I took the advice of others and cut the sugar slightly (to a scant 1/3 cup), used only 2 teaspoons of yeast instead of a whole envelope, plus I used a thermometer to make sure the milk was just the right temperature for the yeast. This dough was so easy to make and easy to work with, it will definitely be added to my regular line up. I love the fact that you can make it in advance and NO KNEADING!
