Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
I made this tonight, as a practice run for thanksgiving. Obviously, I made it outside of the turkey. I did not have turkey liver. I used chicken stock instead of turkey stock. I also used a granny smith apple. Everyone loved it, but I thought that maybe there were too many cranberries. I think I will cut it down. Since I was cooking it in the oven, I did it at 300, because it will probably share the oven with the ham, and I wanted to see if it worked on a cooler oven than others are using. I cooked it for about 90 mins with foil. Then I took the foil off to dry it out a bit - for about 2 hours total. I used 1 cup stock, and it was plenty. I did not have to add any more liquids. It was a big hit. Thank you!

Slow Cooker Thanksgiving Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
This was wonderful! I was thinking of doing it for TG, but wanted a trail run. I got a 3.5 breast, and a 2 lb thigh, because my husband likes dark meat. I left the skin on, because I think it would make it moister. I had a 16 ounce carton of gravy, so I saved the extra and later, mixed it all together to make the gravy. I also added 1/2 of broth. I used half the Worcester sauce, because my mom is watching her sodium. I also made the crockpot stuffing found on this site, and used some of the gravy to improve the taste of the stuffing. I am ready for the holidays!!

Honey Glazed Pea Pods and Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
Very easy to make. I used baby carrots, because I am lazy. I steamed the veggies. I thought it was a tad too sweet, but everyone assured me it was just fine. They certainly disappeared! I used unsalted butter. Next time I will use salted. Thanks!

Tortillas I

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
These were wonderful! I cut the recipe to 24 and got half that (which is what I was expecting) so golf balls and tortillas must be smaller elsewhere. Here is how I rolled them out. I made the balls, and then flattened them a bit between two cutting boards. They were about 2 inches across. Then I rolled them out, stacking them up as I went. At the end, I inverted the stack so the oldest one was one top. Then I rolled one out again - by allowing the dough to relax, I got it thinner. As each one cooked, I rolled out the next one. I am going to get a tortilla press to make it a little easier, but it really was pretty easy.

Shrimp Francesca

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
Delish! The store only had 13 ounce cans of artichokes, but I love them, so that was not a problem. I also used half a lemon, and also half butter/ half olive oil. I served it over angel hair pasta, which I did not butter, thinking the sauce would be enough (and it was). I will definitely be making this again! Thank you for such a great and easy recipe.

New Orleans Barbeque Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
Delicious. I did make some changes - no beer, so I used red wine. Also had no onion powder, so I used green onions. I cute the butter to 1/3 cup, based on other people's comments.

Oranged Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
This has a lovely taste - I am not a fan of traditional cranberries. I do what I always do when I want a thicker sauce: when the cranberries are soft enough, I take a spoon and smush some of them against the side of the pan, then stir and continue cooking.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
This was WONDERFUL. I read through quite a few recipes on this site, but rejected any that use canned soups. Following other people's advice I doubled the sauce, and ended up not using it all. Next time I will go with 50% more. I used a deep dish pie pan. I also cooked the pie crust for 6 minutes before adding the filling. I cooked the veggies in the broth. And, I added some garlic. So easy, so good!!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2011
Great! I just wanted to try this out, so I went with a 1/4th recipe. I followed the recipe and but did not bother with the toothpicks or Styrofoam - I just put it on parchment paper. I also dipped dried fruit. My son is home from college and this is a big favorite for him. It is nice to be able to do it, without buying the special melting chocolate - some of which is not great quality. I melted it to just melting (still has some small lumps), and then took it off the stove, but left it in the double boiler, which kept the chocolate noce and soft.

Cindy's Awesome Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
Excellent! The only change I made was to use a pint of half-and-half and a pint of lowfat milk. It still came out thick and creamy, but cut calories. I also used a bit less bacon, since the package was 12 ounces, and i just cut it in half. I do wish someone would give a weight to the potatoes!

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
This actually took less than 45 mins, as opposed to the hour that instructions say. I left out mushrooms, swapped the tomato for broccoli (which my kids will eat), used nonfat milk for both the milk and half-and-half. I used at least twice the garlic. It was great! Thanks!

Pad See Ew (Thai Noodles with Beef and Broccoli)

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
Since some people were doubling the sauce, and others felt it was too much, I added 50% more sauce - and 1 tablespoon rice vinegar. I used chicken instead of beef. Wonderful! Some day I hope to get to the Asian market to by Chinese broccoli. Thanks!

Fresh Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: May 22, 2010
Delicious. I always have problems with recipes that have chopped ingredients by volume instead of weight, because it will really depend on how it packs into the measuring cup. I think I used more than 4 cups, which makes it less sweet, and I wanted that. I hadnt had rhubarb pie since i was a small child. Thanks!

Fruity Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2013
This is a wonderful and easy recipe. Feel free to make substitutions. Also, if you want a vegetarian option, or just less meat, use maftoul couscous (this is the larger couscous - about the size of small pearls)
