Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2006
this mix came along just in the nick of time. i usually buy at it sam's, but they stopped carrying it. i can't get over how great this is, and i find it much more flavorful than the canned stuff. i mixed it up in my food processor and i couldn't be happier with the results. thanks for a great recipe and a wondeful gift idea.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
i thought this was fantastic. unfortunately, it was too mas for my DH and 18 month old. not sure if using less would have made a difference, but i thought it was perfect.

Award Winning Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
my husband has made this several times; this was my first foray and it was delish. the only thing i didn't have was cilantro, but it was still good. i also didn't have any chili seasoning packets, so i (mostly) used the chili seasoning mix II from this site. mmmmm-good.

Asparagus with Sliced Almonds and Parmesan Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
yummy! i usually cook the out of my asparagus, but i followed this recipe exactly, so it was nice and crisp for a change. and i didn't mind my pan getting all gooped up - it was worth it for the wonderful melding of flavors. will make this again.

Spaghetti with White Clam Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
this was surprisingly fantastic. i say this because the inside of a can of clams isn't that appealing. when i told my husband what i was making he said, 'i don't think i like that.' well, he gobbled it right up, along with my 21-month-old. i couldn't believe it. i only used 1/2 a pound of spaghetti, so i cut the oil down to 1/8 cup, 2 TBSP butter, 4 cloves of garlic, 1 15 oz can of chopped clams, and about half the juice, along w/half of the spices. awesome. next time, i'll include some bread to sop up all the juicy goodness.

Chunky Banana Nut Chip Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
there's no denying this ice cream is delicious as is. i just enjoyed another bowl last night with a little chocolate syrup. it was the perfect recipe for me because i had a bunch of bananas that were getting very ripe and i just couldn't bear making (and eating) another loaf of banana bread. the only thing i really did differently was use about 3 cups of heavy cream and 1 cup of half and half because i'm cheap and wanted to make another ice cream from this site, blueberry cheesecake (fabulous!) and didn't want to buy two quarts of expensive heavy cream. while this recipe isn't nearly as rich as the blueberry one, it's still fantastic. nuts, chocolate, chips, bananas...what's not to love?

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
no matter where this recipe came from, i'm glad it was posted and featured in a newsletter. holy cow, i'm on my second square hot out of the oven and i can't get over how delicious (and easy to prepare) they are. made as instructed, including walnuts, and added mini choc chips and drizzled with caramel before cooking. used an 8 x 8 pan, forgot it would take 30 minutes, checked them every 5 from 20, took them out at 32. and thanks to the engineering geniuses at kraft, i was able to squirt an ample amount of cool whip in a can onto this delectable treat. fantastic!

Chicken Alfredo

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
my husband called this restaurant quality; i'm presuming he meant a good restaurant by the way he wolfed it down. didn't have any red pepper, so i used carrots instead. it was very tasty even tho it seemed kind of odd not to use any fresh onions or garlic. and i, too, had a problem w/the melding of the cream cheese and butter but just went ahead and added the milk which smoothed it right out. b/c i forgot to read any reviews until i was almost done, i threw the veggies in w/the pasta about 2.5 minutes before it was done, as another reviewer suggested, then scooped them out and into the sauce to finish cooking. next time, i might add a little red pepper flakes to spice it up a bit as another reviewer suggested. overall, very tasty, very easy and pretty quick.

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
for whatever reason, i've never been able to make iced tea that was drinkable, until now. not sure if it's because i was using one family sized tea bag for every 2 called for in previous recipes (thanks, heather, for straightening me out), or because i wasn't yet privy to the baking soda trick. but i'm cured now. this turned out perfect and was enjoyed by some pretty serious sweet tea enthusiasts.

Storm of the Century Hurricane

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
made this for a small mardi gras soiree following dawn's recipe (2/27/06) for a punch bowl's worth. it was tasty but definitely potent and one of those drinks that goes down waaaay too easy. everyone loved it but were thankfully responsible (except for me - but i wasn't going anywhere). would definitely make again, tho possibly add more OJ and a little less booze just so people could enjoy more of it.

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
this was really good and had a nice kick to it. made it for a small mardi gras soiree and everyone loved it. i cooked it on high for 4 hours, added 2 cups of uncooked rice and switched it over to low. next time, i'll add an extra cup of broth since some of the rice was a little crunchy. super delicious and very easy to make. thanks for a great recipe!

Asian Style Country Ribs

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
this was really delicious. the only changes i made were using 1 TBS sriracha sauce (you can find this is the international section of any grocery store) as other reviewers suggested, 1/4 total of oil - i didn't have enough sesame so just made up the difference with olive – and cooking the ribs in the marinade - i like a little gravy on my rice. the gravy was a little oily, which i don't blame the recipe for since it called for discarding the marinade. i think next time i may make a small side batch of marinade with maybe just a TBS of sesame oil for the gravy. i was so tempted to add the honey as other reviewers suggested, but wanted to be as true to the recipe as possible. i can only imagine that would make it even more tasty. but as is, delicious. my mouth is watering just writing about it...

Asian Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
I made it exactly as directed and it was delicious. Perfect complement to the Asian Style Country Ribs from this site (thanks, Raffaelo, for suggesting this rice). I completely over-ate. Ahhhh...I am intrigued by the almond accents suggestion...may have to try that next time.

Asparagus Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2011
This was really tasty. I basically used all the ingredients from this recipe, but altered the prep a bit. For instance, I sauteed the asparagus (not sure exactly how much I had - I started with a huge bunch from Sam's that I had already taken from once), onion and celery in 5.5 TBS of butter. I just think sauteed veggies taste better. At first, I had set the tips aside as suggested on another recipe for garnish at the end, then just decided to throw them all in. I think next time I'll saute them for a few, then set them aside to top individual bowls. Anyway, after cooking veggies til tender, I used my stick blender to cream it all. Then I added the flour, milk and cream mixture. As I was pouring it in, I thought I probably didn't need to do this as the blending made it pretty thick on its own, but I was already committed. You could probably skip it without doing any damage. Wound up adding more pepper to my bowl and a couple of splashes of Tabasco, ate it with some fresh, buttered French bread and it was heavenly. Bacon and cheese are always good adds. Wish I had remembered to add a little garlic per other reviews, but it was still pretty darned tasty.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
holy cow, was that easy and delicious. had grand plans to make it exactly as written as i believed i had all the ingredients on hand - you hardly need any. but alas, it wasn't meant to be. used 1 can cream of chicken and one cream of mushroom only to find i actually did have 2 cream of chix. then i realized the biscuits i intended to use expired over 7 months ago. i did actually pop the can just to be sure, but no dice. so thanks, headmeister, for the idea to use bisquick drop biscuits. other than that, basically followed the directions. used 4 chicken breasts from sam's so you know those ladies were well-endowed. also used 2 cups of water w/two chicken bouillon cubes dissolved in them plus a little extra water. didn't want to entirely cover chicken since it was all clumped together in a rock-hard frozen block and i knew would break up over time. next time, i'd use the same amount of water but only one cube as it was a bit salty. did still season said block w/some salt, pepper and a garlic pepper blend i had on hand. 4 hours in, i shredded the chix (totally cooked by then, btw) and dropped in the biscuits. the biscuits kind of made a wall-o-dumplins on top but once i dished it out an hour and a half later, they spread out and it was all good. next time i'll probably add some peas and carrots just to get some veggies in there - i know it's not very authentic. ;) delicious and so easy. awesome! thanks for the great recipe.

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
This bread is so delicious it's beyond words. I have never made nor eaten such a fabulous loaf. It looked fantastic, smelled divine and tasted even better. Nice, crispy crust and the softest insides - I wanted to lay on it. Not the super dense bread I usually associate with Irish Soda Bread. I left out the raisins and caraway seeds and I have no idea how long I cooked it because the timer went off while I was in the shower and my husband didn't remember hearing it go off. My slits did not really do much - I even tried the old dip your knife in the flour trick, but that didn't help. Will take another reviewer's suggestion to slice it 15 minutes into cook time next time. And I only sprinkled a pinch of flour on top but will probably skip in the future - it just kinda sits there; doesn't really bake into it; you can just tap it off the slice. Otherwise, perfection! My guests ate it up - they couldn't stop. I was afraid there wouldn't be enough left over for French toast this morning - thanks to Nikki for this incredible idea (I use Alton Brown's French Toast recipe, in case you're interested). I can't wait to make this bread again. So good. So easy. So amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this fantastic recipe, Penguin Lady. Bread bliss!

Creamy Horseradish Garlic Spread

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
Wow. So tasty. Made it to go w/corned beef and cabbage last night as suggested by a reviewer of the corned beef. So glad I did. Fabulous, easy, quick. And it was all gone by the end of dinner. Ever since, I've been fantasizing about slathering it on a roast beef sandwich. Heavenly. Thanks for a great recipe.

Quick and Easy Sauteed Spinach

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2012
This was so good I can't even stop thinking about it. Sauteed two cloves of minced garlic in the heated oil, after a minute I added about 8 oz spinach (about half of a big container from Sam's), a few turns each of freshly ground pepper and sea salt, covered for 5 minutes as directed, tossed around, covered and cooked for another five minutes and then sprinkled some shaved parm on there. So. Freaking. Good. This amount was enough for my husband, 4 year old (who took one bite, said it was delicious and didn't touch it again) and me. After dinner, I scraped all the crispy little pieces of spinach stuck to the pan and ate them - fantastic! If only I could figure out a way to get it all crisped up like that. As it is, still delicious. Thanks for a great, easy recipe.

Fruit Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2012
So good, so easy. I wanted to make 'personal' pizzas for an in-home party, so just sliced two cookie logs to make individual cookies (got 16 per log) and even they were kinda big. Only made one batch of the spread and didn't even use all of it. Chopped up strawberries, kiwi and pineapple and mixed with blueberries before sprinkling on top of the cookies prepped with the spread. Any fruit combination would be divine. Thanks!
