Zucchini Quiche

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2009
I loved the flavor of this recipe, but I would like it better if it was like a traditional quiche. Like another reviewer stated, it is like zucchini stuck in bread.

Navy Bean Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
Good recipe, but make sure your beans are fresh! I made the mistake of grabbing a bag of beans from the back of my cupboard. Stale beans will never soften no matter how long you cook them. I ate it even though the beans were dry and the skins were tough, but my husband and daughter had chicken nuggets. I'll have to try again after I've given my husband enough time to forget about this mishap. I gave it 4 stars because of what it could have been =(

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
I've made this twice. I made it the first time exactly as written (well I did add some cinnamon and almond extract). The second time I made rice for dinner using 2 cups of rice instead of one. Whatever was leftover I used for the rice pudding. There was more rice than the recipe calls for, but all it needed was a bit more sugar. I used medium grain (Calrose) rice and that makes it so creamy and yummy! If you add some of the hot rice mixture to the egg and milk before mixing it into the pot you won't get scrambled eggs in your rice pudding.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
When I saw how many reviews there were I thought "I've gotta try this". But I've got to tell you these are nothing special. They weren't chewy and the taste was just average. And as soon as they cooled down they were hard, but then they're good for dipping in milk. Unfortunately, I'd rather have a good chewy cookie. I guess I'll have to keep looking. I did follow the recipe exactly and I used parchment paper. They look like the picture, but I was disappointed in the taste and texture.

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
For all of those who don't like the too sweetness of this recipe, I've been making this for years and I use chocolate cake instead of brownies and chocolate pudding made the regular way with milk. It always gets raves and requests for the recipe. I like using real whipped cream and toffee bits. Yum!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2007
This chili is awesome! My husband won our church chili cookoff last Sat. night. (with a little help from me ;))We didn't use the celery. Celerly in chili? We used 4 cans chili beans, no spicy ones, 4 cans Hunt's tomatoes Fireroasted with Garlic, and that gave me the idea to grill the veggies with the 1 lb skirt steak he put in. Next time will reduce ground chuck to 1 lb and add more skirt steak. That really made it great. We're Mormon, so we didn't put in the beer and didn't put in any tabasco or cayenne pepper. The heat was subtle, just right for our crowd. We used a large red jalepeno and let the whole thing simmer overnight on low heat. In the morning I put the chili in the fridge and reheated it just before leaving for the cook off. We got so many compliments! I'm not a chili lover and I loved this chili and will only make this recipe from now on. Thanks for a great recipe!

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2007
Wonderful alfredo sauce! I added extra garlic anda freshly grated nutmeg and that made a huge difference. Yummy! To those who have a problem with graininess, buy the wedge of parmesan cheese and grate it at home. A litte bit of effort makes a big difference. You won't have any problems with your cheese not melting.

Banana Bread I

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2007
I loved this recipe! I used 4 bananas, whole wheat pastry flour, ground raw sugar, and I added chocolate chips. Because this bread is so moist, no one detected the wheat flour. It was fantastic right out of the oven. I bought extra bananas so I could make it again. I hope I can wait until they're brown!

Honey Wheat Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2007
I've made this bread three times. The second time I made it I forgot to read the instructions. Since I've been making bread for so long I just made it the way I always do. BIG MISTAKE! Letting the mixture sit for 15 minutes (I got busy the first time and it sat for over an hour. In fact I think the longer time made it even better) and putting the pan of water in the oven while baking are key to this bread turning out so wonderful. The only thing I changed about the ingredients was increasing the salt to 1 tablespoon. This will be my standard recipe for wheat bread from now on. I will stock up on canned milk so I will always have what I need when the mood strikes to have bread right out of the oven smeared with butter. YYuuuummmmmm!

Chicken Enchilada Soup III

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2006
I made this soup once before using the processed cheese, exactly as written in another recipe. Everything is exactly the same except for the cheese and it was great. This time I did as others suggested and used the whole 28 oz can of enchilada sauce and it was way too overpowering. I used the cheddar cheese and it wasn't as good as velveeta. It didn't incorporate into the soup as well. Will have to throw it out and start over.

Chili I

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2006
Like others have said, the recipe in the orginal form left something to be desired. I put it in the crockpot overnight and then put it in the fridge all day to let the flavors develop. After heating it up I added an extra tsp. of garlic salt, about a 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin, a tablespoon oregano and 2 tbsp cocoa. I left out the sugar altogether and the cayenne because I don't like really spicy food, also added an extra can of tomato paste oh, and a pound of sausage at the beginning. I think next time I would use more sirloin. And I used chili beans instead of kidney. NOW I have a winner! Going to a chili cookoff tonight-wish me luck!

Brisket with BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2005
I made this for Sunday dinner when the kids and spouses come for dinner. Like a previous review, they ate it and didn't say anything. The sauce wasn't anything to write home about. However, it was my first time cooking a brisket and the cooking method was great: tender and flavorful. I halved the onion salt and made up the difference with Pappy's seasoning. My husband loved the taste before the sauce. After letting it cool about half an hour he cut thick slices with and electric knife and didn't have any problems. I will try it again with a different sauce or maybe even gravy.

Chicken Piccata II

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2005
Absolutely fabulous! Great flavor~my husband said it was better than a restaurant. I added mushrooms and capers as suggested and it was wonderful. I also pounded the breasts flat and they were really tender. I also added seasoned bread crumbs to the flour to give the coating a little texture. I doubled the sauce and after removing the breasts to a serving plate and scooping the mushrooms over I poured the remaining sauce over angel hair pasta. Just delicious! Will serve it again and again!

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2003
This recipe is so easy my handicapped daughter can make it by herself. I keep a big jar of spaghetti sauce and a big bag of mozzarella cheese from Costco in the fridge so she can make it whenever she wants. She makes the best pizza!

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2002
These cookies are fantastic! I made some and took them to work and everyone raved about them. One gal said they were like the kind you buy at the mall. My 22 year old son took one bit and said, "Wow!" I made the jars as gifts using macadamia nuts and they were beautiful. A wonderful Christmas gift. Will make them again and again.

Hurricane's Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2002
I sort of made this recipe. I had a lot of leftovers from Thanksgiving, so I used leftover stuffing (I make it dry because my husband likes to put gravy on it). I put in big chunks of turkey. I didn't have cream of celery, so I used cream of mushroom instead and added a small can of mushrooms. I had whipping cream leftover, so a put that in. It's looking really good, now! I put in some frozen peas, freshly ground pepper, and some dehydrated onion. I sprinkled a little more stuffing on before adding the french fried onions. My family ate the whole 9x13 inch casserole in one sitting. That's a first for us!

Apple Enchiladas

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2002
Yuk! I tried this recipe just the way it is written and the tortillas were really tough. Next, I tried it with uncooked tortillas and, although they weren't tough, it just didn't taste very good. I give up. I won't try it again.

French Apple Pie Icing

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2002
This recipe did not work! You can't have the same amount of butter and milk in a frosting recipe unless you WANT it to look like cottage cheese. If you want traditional frosting, only a little milk should be used. If you want it more like a glazed, reduce the amount of butter. What a waste of ingredients! I scooped some of the messed into another bowl, added more powdered sugar and made a glazed to drizzle on the pie. The rest of the "cottage cheese" went down the sink :(

Baked Potato Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2001
I made a few changes worth trying. First, I used diced baked potatoes (peel after baking). I sauted the onions and celery in the butter with some minced garlic. Then, I added about 1 1/2 cups chicken broth and the potatoes. I mashed the potatoes slightly and added the half and half. I cooked and stirred it until it started to thicken and then added the soup. The seasonings always have to be adjusted in a recipe like this, and I added garlic salt, pepper, and chicken bouillon crystals to make it just right. It was simply wonderful, and my family loved it! It was creamy and cheesey to the max!
