Overnight Apple Cinnamon French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2005
This was the 1st French Toast casserole recipe I have tried that didn't come out soggy. I scaled the recipe down to 7.5 servings. The kids wouldn't touch it, but they are extremely fussy. Husband thought it was good. I thought it was a bit sweet. I did use half and half instead of milk as others have suggested. I did make a mess flipping it though!!

Rita's Sweet Holiday Baked Ham

Reviewed: May 29, 2005
This was my 2nd attempt at making a ham dinner. (The 1st try, I won't even discuss!) If I had only found this recipe sooner! This was so moist. (And wonderful presentation too!) I didn't change a thing, other than the size of the ham. I used an 8lb semi bone-in ham. I still left the cook time for 2 hours though. Some reviews stated that it didn't taste as sweet as they expected. I used a smoked ham, and quite enjoy the flavor of the ham itself. I was glad that this didn't over power that taste of the smoked ham, it kept it moist while cooking. I did serve the juice as an "Au juice" as suggested, and it was wonderful as well. I will use this recipe every time I have to prepare a ham! Thank you!!

Chicken Broccoli Ca - Unieng's Style

Reviewed: May 24, 2005
This is very tasty and easy to make! Exactly what a busy mom needs! The only change to the ingredients I did was I used light soy sauce, because that is all I have. I didn't get much of a sauce at the end of the cooking time. I think this can be fixed by cooking the chicken on high for only 5 minutes in order to sear it, then reducing it to med-high for the rest of the cook time. I had cooked it on high for the full 10 minutes per the recipe. I noticed that some reviews stated that there was too much pepper. I did not reduce the amount of pepper at all, but I had combined the sugar, water and pepper in a bowl first. A lot of the pepper stuck to the sides of the bowl, so maybe that's why I didn't think there was too much! This recipe is a definate keeper! I will make this again and again!

Ricotta Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2005
My Grandmother used to make a lucious Ricotta Pie every Easter. Unfortunatley, never had anything written down, as the recipe was in her head. This recipe is very, very close to what she made. She never put the chocolate in her pie, but a lot of the other Italian ladies did. We just omit the chocolate, and it's just like Grandma used to make! Thank you so much for this recipe!!! One beloved tradtion will continue through many more generations.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2004
Oh--my--gosh!! These are the best c.c. cookies I have ever made! The trick is (with almost all cookies, really) is to take them out before they look done. They will continue to cook on the cookie sheet while cooling. (especially if you use stonewear,like I do) Stonewear takes a little longer, I was baking each batch about 18 minutes. I did follow the suggestion to cool the dough in the fridge, but I found that this makes the dough hard to manage. I ended up rolling the dough into walnut-sized balls because I couldn't get a spoon into it! Not huge cookies, just right! These were a hit last night. They definaltey rival the c.c. cookies from our local bakery! They had a slightly crunchy outside, and gooey middle! Perfect! Thank you!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2004
I'm changing my rating to a 2 star. I hadn't made these cookies in a while, and I forgot about my notes in my first review below. I didn't add the extra flour and baking powder this last time and this cookies ran like crazy! I now understand why some where so disappointed. The extra flour REALLY makes the difference. Without this alteration, the original recipe is not good. Hope this helps! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In an attempt to make "perfect" cookies the first try, I read many of the reviews here. Guess what! It worked! These cookies are fantastic. I did soak the raisins by putting them in a colander, placing the colander in a saucepan and running hot tap water over them enough to cover them. I let them soak while preparing the dough. Another concern expressed in other reviews was that these cookies came out flat and ran into each other. To try and avoid this happening, I used 1/4 cup more flour and added 1/2 tsp. baking powder. These did not run at all, and are slightly poofy.

Easter Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2004
YUMMY!!! I followed the other suggestions and put the hash browns in first instead of mixing it. I added a couple of shakes of salt and pepper on top of the hash browns and I baked them in the oven for about 10 minutes before pouring the egg mixture over the top. I didn't put quite the amount of milk this recipe called for. I only put 1 cup in, if that. 2 cups just sounded too much, and would be very runny. I also added a few shakes of salt and pepper to the egg mixture because of some comments that the dish was a little bland. This was smelled great while cooking and tasted just as wonderful! Delicious!! Thank you Stephanie! This is definatley a keeper!

Chicken Piccata I

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2004
This was a great base recipe. I didn't use the butter/veg. oil combo, I just used Olive oil and browned some crushed garlic in it before browining the chicken. I followed other reviewers' suggestions and added one cup of chicken broth to the drippings, wine and lemon juice. I then put the browned chicken back in the pan, covered it and let is steam for about 8 minutes. I think next time, I may add some grated cheese to the bread crumb mixture. (Romano cheese would be my choice!) Very tasty chicken dish!

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2004
I have never had Spanish Rice before, but I was going to have a Pampered Chef party with a Mexican food theme. So, I cooked this up, not really knowing what to expect. It was very tasty!! Everyone loved it at the party. The only thing different I did from the recipe was I didn't saute the rice until it was brown. I did it for maybe 5 minutes. It came great!

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: May 17, 2003
I should have followed the other reviewer's suggestion and lowered the oven temp!! I checked on them just as they were starting to burn! They were still good tho! I used 3 bananas and had a little over a cup, so i also ended up with about 4 more muffins than I was supposed to. The last 4, I lowered the temp to 350 and baked for the recommended time and they came out perfect!

Texas Eggs

Reviewed: May 10, 2003
This was really easy and smelled wonderful as it was cooking! My husband doesn't like sausage so I used bacon instead. The bread was a little mushy for my taste, but everyone else loved it. The next time I make this, I may toast the bread before putting it in the caserole.

Fruit Pizza

Reviewed: May 3, 2003
I have made this several times now and always get raves and many recipe requests! It's so easy to make! My favorite way to create it is with strawberries and blueberries and make the American Flag with the fruit. Any fruit combination is fun and tasty. Bananas are tricky though. They tend to turn brown, even after the lemon trick! This recipe is a definate keeper!

Awesome Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 3, 2003
Ya know, I never thought I would stop and actually read a recipe for a grilled cheese sandwich! My curiosity got the best of me and I am sure glad it did!! I've always made grilled cheese in the frying pan...NO MORE! Although I love the gooiness of a grilled cheese sandwich, mine were always too gooey and floppy! This recipe makes a wonderful crunchy outside and a glorious gooey inside! Thank you so much! I did follow the other tips below and buttered the bread heavier on the edges and hardly at all in the middle. This worked out perfect. I also only set the oven for 400 degrees, put the rack on the bottom position and baked for about 8 min on the first side and only 6 mins after flipping. Two slices of American cheese was my choice for the sandwiches this time, but looking forward to adding other goodies such as tomato, ham, or even trying a tuna melt....Thanks for this idea!!!!

Cupid's Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2002
I did not like the flavor at all. I was expecting a "peppermint patty" type flavor, but it wasn't at all.

Melt In Your Mouth Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2001
This really was "melt-in-your-mouth" quality! It was a tad on the salty side, and I used low fat/low sodium teriyaki sauce. I also added two tablespoons of honey. It was quite good.

Beer Cooked Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2001
I saw other reviews saying this was bland and doctored it up a bit. I sauteed the mushrooms with garlic and onions, added salt and pepper, dusted the chicken breasts with garlic powder and then when it was simmering I added a chicken boullion cube. It was still a little bland. I also used pecorino/romano cheese instead of parmesan. That flavored it a little more. It was just okay.

Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2001
This turned out to be a hit at the family picnic. I wasn't quite sure on how much broccoli "Two heads" were. I bought two rubber banded bunches at the grocery store and actually had to double the dressing so it wasn't too dry. I didn't put quite as much pepper as it said and also added rasins! It was very yummy!
