Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2004
These are wonderful and they went over great at a recent party I threw (50 ppl). I used mini loaves of rye bread which made it quicker to prepare (I made a lot of them!). Everything else was exact to the recipe. Will use this again and again. Note: Don't be fooled into thinking these are too "dainty" for men as these babies were mostly devoured by men. When it comes to great eats, there are no gender issues. Use fresh dill and if you toast, toast lightly. Thanks for sharing.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2004
Great and easy. Didn't have paper liners. Just sprayed a teflon muffin tin and after an hour in the freezer, they popped right out. Thanks.

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2004
At my party of 60 people of mixed ages last weekend, this punch scored a big hit. My punchbowl is large and holds the entire recipe in one round. I made 5 "rounds" for this party, and 3 were gone in the first 90 minutes, and the next two shortly there after. I used sugar-free Jello, and Diet Sierra Mist soda to offset the high sugar content a little, and I placed a bottle of vodka next to the punchbowl as an option. One hint: using Ziploc bags is a perfect idea, but don't use a cheap knockoff. I had an explosion in my freezer! This recipe was highly requested and is reason enough to regret selling your punchbowl in a yardsale!

Bourbon Whiskey BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2004
I prepared this sauce, scaled to a half-gallon, for a party last weekend. I used it with the Slow Cooker Barbeque recipe submitted by Brandy on this site. As in my review for that recipe, this was the most requested recipe of all time for me. I was repeatedly asked "what kind of sauce did you use?". 30 copies of the recipe disappeared quickly. I used Jim Bean and oh, the smell in the house while cooking should be made into a Yankee Candle! Tweak to your preference, but wonderful as is. Thanks Kevin ... great recipe.

Slow Cooker Barbeque

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2004
This recipe, was a HUGE hit with everone (60 ppl) at my party recently, and was the most requested recipe of all time for me. For absolute success, I have two tips: USE EYE ROUND ROAST! It's leaness allows the meat to slow cook for 8 hours without diluting the BBQ sauce with liquids from fat. After the meat is cooked and cooled, slice it thin and return it to the crockpot on low. I used (4) 4 lb roasts cut in half. (Remember, 60 people and 4 crockpots!). Half way through cooking time, I turned the sections over to allow them to cook evenly in the sauce. Second, if you haven't spotted the Bourbon Whiskey BBQ Sauce recipe submitted by Kevin on this site yet, you should. It's better than great. This combination made the dish to die for. All I could hear in the crowd was "the barbeque beef is sooooo good". If you really want your cooking to please, this combo does the job. Thanks!

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: May 31, 2004
I love this recipe and use it often, and I don't change a thing except that I use whatever chicken pieces I have, not a whole. Removing the skin (and all that fat) and still yielding wonderfully tender and tasty chicken is why this one's at the top of my list for chicken. Thanks Kathy, for updating my former recipe with a healthier version.

Chicken Alfredo Pizza

Reviewed: May 22, 2004
I've made this pizza several times - with company. It is always a pleasant surprise because each time, I top it with whatever fresh veggies I have on hand. The only consistent issue I have is that the sauce needs nearly twice as much liquid to make it "spreadable", which is fine, and the crust does not taste "cooked" in 20 minutes. I made this again yesterday and I find that when the crust is "lightly browned" it's not enough cooking for the crust beneath the toppings. When I reheated the leftovers for 20 more minutes @350, the crust became the perfect texture. I love this recipe though, so make it your own.

Port And Mushroom Sauce Chicken

Reviewed: May 11, 2004
I had two split chicken breasts on hand (for two), no shallots, used onions, no fresh mushrooms, used a 4-oz can, but kept all ingredients proportioned the same. I had to come up with something quick. This was so good with all the substitutions, I can only imagine how wonderful it will be when I make it again with the ingredients as written. I added about 2 tablespoons of half and half mixed with a teaspoon of corn starch at the end. Just a preference for a creamier gravy. This was very good, easy and ready in 30 minutes.

Dynamite

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2004
This is as good a recipe for dynamite as I've seen. I double the amount of onions and peppers and add a large can of chopped tomatoes. Just my preference. I like the veggies cut into 1" pieces for a chunkier sandwich. After browning the meat, I put everything into a crock pot and cook on high until very tender. At the end, taste for heat and adjust (slowly) with Red Hot Sauce! Make a pot full and watch it get devoured during halftime! Thanks!

Old-Fashioned Rice Pudding II

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2004
This IS old-fashioned rice puddng, and it IS suppose to be rice cooked in sweetened milk - exactly what my mom and grandmother use to make. I love it, and I use Splenda! Thanks for bringing it back.

Burger or Hot Dog Buns

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2004
These are very good, but a little heavier than I like for burger buns. Nice for some certain other sandwiches though.

Bread Machine Bagels

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2004
This was my first attempt at bagels. Thanks to a great recipe and helpful tips from reviewers, I'm a believer! Awesome. I added 2 teas cinnamon and 1/2 cup of raisins, sprayed the baking sheet before sprinkling cornmeal, made the holes large enough, let them rise at least 30 minutes after shaping and boiled a full minute each side. Thanks all around. 5 stars easy.

Chicken and Mushroom Chowder

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2004
I'm not sure why but I decided to take a reviewer's suggestion and slow cook the chicken. I didn't like the meat shredded. Also, I would have preferred the carrots sliced rather than chopped. The sauteed fresh mushrooms MAKE this dish. The flavor was wonderful, and I used fat-free broth and 1% milk. Make again? Maybe.

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2004
I made 2 of these for Easter. I baked the yams (450 for an hour). Then, pureed them in my food processor. I used 1/2 brown sugar, 1/2 Splenda, a little flour and lemon extract as recommended by other reviewers. My family couldn't believe how good these tasted. My brother brought a delicious italian whipped cream cake from his favorite bakery and they went for this one more, hands down. Even sweet potato haters loved this! Thanks!

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2004
Made these yesterday, refrigerated overnight, brought back to room temp this morning and heated at 350 for 30 minutes. What I learned is that the potatoes must be gently mashed together with the other ingredients, and a bit stiff when you spoon it back into the shell. The cheese and such in the mix adds wetness. Watch how much milk you add. My next batch will be perfect. The flavor is awesome, and I followed this recipe exactly. Thanks.

Beets

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2004
Beets and apples go perfectly together. This was good, but nothing to crow about. Predictable and fine for everyday fare.

Cream of Fresh Asparagus Soup II

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2004
I made this today, scaled to 10, for Easter Dinner tomorrow. I followed the recipe exactly, but used reduced-fat sour cream and whole milk. I snipped the tips off the asparagus, boiled them for a few minutes to use as garnish (Thanks for the tip other reviewer). Well, I snuck a small bowl of it when it was finished. I can't wait to hear the oooos and ahhhs tomorrow. What a perfect Easter (or Spring dinner) appetizer. What a perfect soup! Thanks! P.S. Buy nearly twice as much asparagus as the recipe calls for ... you have to remove the woody ends.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2004
This is the only recipe I've used for years. I use my bread machine to prepare. I scale it to 8 servings for a perfect standard-size, 12 inch pizza. I cut the amount of water slightly as I found I had to add too much flour to make it a workable ball of dough. Also, after the second rise when the crust is nice and full, it "deflates" after I top it so I'm going to try baking it for 8-10 minutes before topping. Still, this is the best and easiest recipe.

Easy Pizza Sauce I

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2004
This took five minutes to put together. I simmered it for a few minutes instead of waiting. I used half the oil a little less water as recommended, and I loved the results. Perfect. Thanks!
