Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
Very yummy! We halved the recipe but made no other changes as far as ingredients. When it came to the baking soda bath, I followed a review from another recipe here and actually boiled the pretzels in the bath for about 15 seconds. I found that the longer they boiled, the darker the crust gets when baked (I miss timed the first one or two!). This also made them tougher. So if you prefer softer, stick with 15-20 seconds. We then brushed with butter and sprinkled with the kosher salt. Baked at a lower temp, 425 degrees, for 8 minutes (per another review). They cam out wonderfully! Will definitely make these again for snacks sometime!

Herbed Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
We really enjoy this recipe. The only change I made was to use brown rice instead of white rice. This has significant changes to the cooking. The first time I made this recipe I used brown rice and baked it. It took almost 2 hours to bake. This last time I followed the recipe until the step to bake. Instead of baking I simmered the rice as directed on the package. Simmering the brown rice usually takes 45-50 minutes so there was plenty of time for all of the flavors to meld! Wonderful!

Creole Tuna

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2010
We enjoy this recipe because it is simple! I also added a little onion while sautéing the peppers. I used a can of tomatoes (in juices) and followed the rue recipe and found that it was not too thick with the addition of the tomatoes. I also used two cans of tuna to make it heartier and will add more seasoning next time, as this time it was not terribly spicy.

Angela's Easy Breaded Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2010
This was wonderful! I also added parmesan cheese to the bread crumbs and I used an italian dressing mix with olive oil and water. I baked the breasts in my toaster oven which allowed them to sit closer to the coil. It didn't take more than 20 minutes to bake them (only two) and they were wonderfully crisp!
