Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
This was just ok for me. I probably wouldn't make it again. If you make the chicken like the recipe call for and don't use frozen nuggets, this seemed like it was actually more work than just making Chicken Cordon Bleu. I would rather stick with the real thing. If I could think of one thing that would make it better for me would be to use something other than bread crumbs to coat the chicken. Maybe more of a traditional flour based breading would have made a difference.

Perfect Apple Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
Two thumbs up! This was super yummy. I didn't have any nutmeg and since it would have added 5 or 6 dollars to the cost I skipped it. I did add half a cup of brown sugar though. I bet the nutmeg would have gone nicely with the pie. I found that 5 large granny smith apples was about 7 cups, however I feel like I could only fit about 5 cups in the deep dish pie crust I bought. I piled the apples about as high as I could have and couldn't use all 7 cups. It did leak all over my oven so I recommend putting some aluminum foil underneath to catch any drippings. Next time I will add the nutmeg...

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
I really like the chicken pot pie. It tasted just like the frozen pot pies you get in the store but better because of the fresh ingredients. I thought the sauce was plenty and it wasn't dry. I think that if you didn't want the consistency to be so dry you should just cook the sauce less time so that it is a little more fluid. I don't know what having twice the amount of sauce would do since I don't feel like I could fit any more in the pie. I didn't have celery seed so I excluded that. Not sure if it would have made any difference. I also added some diced potatoes to the pot when I boiled the chicken and carrots mixture. I really liked this and will make it again.

Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
This was pretty good. I think the biggest advantage is that you could make it for a bunch of people at one time. I changed some stuff around like many people did. I added some bacon and chives to the mix. I think I wouldn't have minded just a little sour cream on top when I served it either. Didn't have any on hand so I will try it for next time. It is hard to see this really being on a healthy menu but it is very yummy. I will make this again for sure.

Banana Pancakes with Berries

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
I really like these A LOT. I didn't have buttermilk and pretty much never cook with it. The store only had half gallons so I ended up just using some plain old milk and it tasted great to me and my girlfriend. I pretty much followed the recipe just as it was written otherwise. Some have reported problems with the banana's getting too brown but I didn't find that to be true. I kept the heat around medium and just dropped them in after I put the batter in the pan. For a little extra something I made a little heart with the whip cream and then put the strawberries inside. That was a winner too!
