Chocolate Yule Log

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
I've never made a yule log before, but this recipe was easy enough for me to follow and have good results. The cake looked great - I decorated with marzipan mushrooms and mint leaves and cherries that resembled holly. However, the mocha flavor wasn't my favorite even though I usually like mocha. I will try a different recipe next time.

Golden Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
My family really liked this soup. I used cheddar in place of the American cheese and bacon instead of ham. A great comfort food!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
My family really liked the taste of this soup, and I liked how easy it was to make! I used the meat from a store-bought roaster instead of raw chicken. Even easier!

Terrific Turkey Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
My entire family ate this dish w/o complaint, which is a good thing! I bought one of those prepackaged 3 lb. tubes of ground turkey and tripled the recipe to make two meatloaves (one for the freezer). I omitted the black olives and used Lawry's season salt in place of celery salt, and I also used oatmeal instead of oat bran. Since I eyeballed the ingredients rather than measuring them, I'm not sure how many oats I used, but I know it was a lot more than called for since the mixture seemed runny. My family thought there was something a little odd about the flavor - couldn't decide if it was the Worcestershire or the peppers - so we will probably play around with those amounts next time to make it more to our taste. I topped the meatloaf with ketchup about 10 minutes before removing it from the oven. Even so, my family still ate it with extra ketchup.

Chicken Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
My family loved this recipe, but I did change it up a bit to suit our tastes and make it easier to prepare. First, I added cooked onion, peas & carrots and substituted cream of chicken soup for the mushroom soup. I also used an entire bag of egg noodles and a full sleeve of crackers, which I crushed before opening. Oh, and I just threw in a couple cups of chicken that I pulled off a rotisserie chicken rather than boiling the breasts.

Garlic Alfredo Tilapia

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
We have a winner! My family is not big on seafood, but they will grudgingly eat tilapia. My husband and oldest son really liked this recipe and even went back for seconds. I accidentally used the whole jar of Alfredo rather than just a cup, so I've frozen the extra to use another time. We'll see how well it freezes....

Ground Turkey Noodle Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
This recipe was a big hit, especially with the kids. Since we like our food flavorful, I incorporated some of the other reviewers' suggestions and also more-than-doubled to make the recipe easier. I used an entire bag of egg noodles, 10 oz. cream cheese, 2 c. fresh milk (not dry + water), and about 1-1/2 jars of spaghetti sauce in lieu of the tomato sauce. I also increased the parsley and Italian seasoning, and I added some seasoned salt (a white variety) to the noodle mixture. It just fit into a 9x13 pan. Oh, and I sprinkled shredded parmesan on top of the mozzarella. I will definitely make again.

Peas and Macaroni Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2010
My family thought this recipe was just OK - nobody complained, but nobody raved, either. Even with the different seasonings, I tasted only canned peas. We don't have a strong need to make it again.

Fortune Cookies III

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
I have made fortune cookies before, and they always taste better than those you get in the restaurant. This recipe was very good. Since I didn't have cream on hand, I substituted buttermilk with no adverse effect on the flavor. I found it easier to laminate the fortunes (or cover them with clear contact) and then wrap them inside the cookies rather than trying to thread them through afterward. It also helps to have an empty egg carton available to hold the fortunes after folding so they don't lose their shape while cooling.

Fast and Friendly Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
Fast and kid-friendly, as advertised. I did add some seasoning salt that contained onion and garlic; I think the recipe would have been bland without it. Next time I will try adding some shredded parmesan, too. I lined a baking sheet with non-stick foil and skipped the oil, and the meatballs baked up fine.

Thanksgiving Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
I thought this recipe was excellent. I had turkey gravy on the side for those who must drown their meatloaf in something but otherwise made it as directed. I made homemade poultry seasoning - 3/4 t. sage, 1/4 t. thyme, 1/4 t. marjoram, 1/8 t. black pepper, dash of ground cloves. Yum!

Cranberry Orange Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
This bread was absolutely delicious - very moist, with a terrific flavor. I substituted Craisins, which I first plumped in the microwave with a little water and patted dry. Since Craisins are sweeter than fresh cranberries, I reduced the sugar in the recipe to 1-1/2 cups. Definitely a "keeper!" I can't wait to serve this bread on Christmas morning.

Chicken Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
I found this recipe very tasty. I didn't have time to cut carrots and celery, so I substituted frozen peas and carrots and also used thyme instead of savory. The family loved it! Definitely a comfort food.

Sausage Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
I made this soup for a party, and it was a success! I tried to make the recipe as directed but was confused about the sausage. The ingredients say fully cooked links, but the directions say to crumble (which sounds like bulk sausage) and brown. I ended up browning some breakfast sausage links and then cutting them up. I also substituted a few dashes of cayenne pepper for the hot sauce.

French Apple Tart (Tarte de Pommes a la Normande)

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
Wow - well worth the effort! I made this tart as directed and ended up with a stunning dessert that tasted as good as it looked. The recipe is definitely a keeper!

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
My family is not big on fish, but I'm trying to go healthy and serve more. This dish was a good start. It was not "fishy" tasting at all, and it was very tender. I accidentally used honey mustard instead of dijon mustard, so it was pretty sweet, but I think the kids liked that about it. I would make this recipe again.

Easy Strata and Variations

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2009
Well, I found out the hard way that my "9x13" pan is actually a little short - I am now cleaning my oven because of the boiled over milk and egg mixture. I did like the versatility of this dish and the fact that it did not need to refrigerate overnight. I used a combination of bulk breakfast sausage, onions, peppers, and zucchini. The flavor was good, but I think dry mustard would add a nice little zing to it. I actually tried this recipe as a way to use up some sour milk, and that substitution was successful.

Marinade for Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
I cut the recipe in half and still had more than enough. Next time, I'd probably make the directed amount and then freeze a portion for another use. At any rate, I would give this recipe five stars for tenderness - I marinated the chicken breasts for about four hours before grilling, and they were super-moist! The flavor, however, was just OK for my family.

Hearty Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
I'm always looking for good recipes to use up leftover ham, and this one fit the bill. The sauce came out a bit runny but was still quite tasty. I didn't have Velveeta on hand, so I used cheddar. Next time, I may try adding some dry mustard to the sauce for a little zing.

Drupey Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
I used my mom's crust recipe and a crumb topping, but the fruit flavor was terrific. I think I will call the pie by a different name, though, since "Drupey" sounds so unappealing.
