Chicken Pot Pie II

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
Very much enjoyed this pie. I had left-over turkey from our holiday meal so I substituted that for the chicken. I also cut the recipe in half, using only one potato. But this wound up being a little to dry so I added 1/2 c. more broth to 1/2 TBS. flour and added it to the turkey and vegetable mix. This recipe will be one of my repeats!

Apple Walnut Salad with Cranberry Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
This salad is wonderfully easy to put together. I served it with a homemade turkey pot pie and they went well together. I left the dressing a little chunky. It was more appealing visually and it was nice to get an occasional bit of cranberry.

This was a very easy soup to prepare and as another reviewer said, it's even better the next day

Prego® Now and Later Baked Ziti

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
We enjoyed this easy dish. I used "Traditional" Prego sauce and doctored it up a bit with oregano and basil. Hubby likes "casserole" type dishes and its nice that we have a second dinner waiting for us in the fridge!

Amazingly Good Eggnog

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
We really enjoyed this. It takes a bit of time but its far better than all the stuff in the store-bought brands.

English Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
These turned out really good, which surprises me because I made a couple of errors. I misread the instruction and activated the yeast in only 1/4 c. water. Then, when adding the extra flour the dough became so dry (I only added 1.25 cups) that I began kneading and forgot to add the salt! So I kneaded in the salt and said, "Que sera, que sera." Well the dough rose just fine and I continued on with the instruction. I only got 11 muffins but hey, I'm happy with that. I'll be trying this recipe again. And maybe it's better that I not try cooking at 6 in the morning!

Lemon Thyme Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2010
I did not find the flavor of this dish appetizing at all. Also, using only 14.5 oz. of liquid leaves the rice firm and the thyme (I used only 1 tsp. dried) overwhelmed any lemon flavor.

Easy Lovely Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2010
I'm giving this 2 stars for tenderness but the flavor was nothing worth making this again. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and covered for 45 min. (they were partially frozen) then uncovered for about 10 min. They sliced wonderfully. Maybe if I'd thickened the juices to make a sauce it would have been better.

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
I used Paul Newman's Alfredo sauce and no-cook noodles to cut down on the prep time and it turned out delicious. At dinner I told my husband that I thought this was good and he responded, "it's very good." That makes it a keeper.

Betsy's Mandarin Orange Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
Nice salad, light flavor so it doesn't overwhelm the flavors of your main dish. The dressing was more than we used.

Harvest Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
This salad was delicious! The walnut oil is wonderful. I'm going to have to find more uses for it.

Orange Herb Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
This was very tender and moist! I cut the amount of butter way back to 1/4 c. total. I put 2 Tbs. cut in pieces under the skin and drizzled another 2 Tbs. over chicken before roasting. The left over meat I used to make a chicken pie. Will be making this again.

Gourmet Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
This was my first time making homemade pizza and it was a flop. Mostly because the crust burned. After I put the crust in the oven to bake (the second time) I suspected I would have a problem when I compared the cooking time of the pizza crust on the package (13 - 17 min.) and that required in the recipe (27 - 32 min. total). I had to take it out of the oven as soon as the cheese melted rather than when it was "melted and bubbly". Should I have baked it on the top rack (gas oven)? Overall the flavor was OK and I might make it again for a Friday night quick meal if I can learn how to save the crust.

Chicken In Basil Cream

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
This was a delicious and simple recipe. I left out the pimento since we're not big fans of that flavor. In hindsight I wish I had heeded the reviewers who recommended doubling the sauce. I will definitely be making this again.

Mom's Best Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2011
I made this tonight and we enjoyed the flavor. I followed some of the reviews and added seasoning to the crushed crackers rather than with the egg. My chops were a little thicker than the "thin cut" that I usually get so I cooked them in the oven for 30 min. and they still came out a bit dry. Next time I'll check them after about 20 min.

Old Fashioned Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
This is a very good, grown-up mac 'n cheese! Good-bye boxed stuff. I cut the recipe in half since there are only two of us. I followed the recipe ingredients however I need more flour to make a paste for the white sauce. I also did a short cut and added the onion, salt, pepper and cheeses to the white sauce and then added the elbow macaroni; mixed it all together and baked for 30 min. Yumm.

Easy Honey Mustard Mozzarella Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
These were just OK to us, nothing to rave about. The flavor of the sauce did not carry over into the chicken. Maybe if I marinaded them for a few hours first? I cut the recipe in half since it's just the two of us. I forgot the lemon pepper but I know that was not a make or break ingredient. With so many recipes that we do like I doubt I will give this one a second chance.

Impossible French Apple Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
This pie doesn't really come out like a pie. It is more like an apple bread pudding or something along that line. The ingredients made enough to fill one 9" pie dish and one of my 6" pie dishes. The presentation is so-so but the flavor is good. I will continue to look for a better french apple pie recipe.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
Made these today for a weekend gathering. A bit messy to make and unfortunately the all crowns fell before the cupcakes were done. :( They turned out very moist though. I thought the frosting was too sweet and the powdered sugar overwhelmed the cream cheese flavor even though I used only about 13 oz. of the sugar. Probably won't make these again.

Grandma Gudgel's Black Bottom Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
These are delicious! The cupcake was moist and the cream cheese filling was just right although the recipe makes way too much of it. I will probably cut the cream cheese recipe in half the next time I make these.
