Tarragon-Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
Very tasty and simple. I had ground chicken on-hand, and it turned out just fine. I froze half the batch, and it was even better the second time around!

Cold Oven Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
Perfect heavy, thick and moist pound cake. I added chocolate chips, but the plain cake is excellent too!

Sunshine Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
Really tasty! I had a whole chicken, and did this in the crockpot (an almost 6lb chicken, cooked all day coated in this sauce). I doubled all the ingedients except the corn syrup, and added 2 Tbsp of worschestershire sauce.

Tomato Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
We liked this a lot. I used a tuscan frozen veggie mix (broccoli, onion, mushrooms and peppers). I served it on ramen noodles (actually, added the cooked noodles to the meat/veg/sauce), and added one ramen seasoning packet to the mix.

English Muffin Loaves

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
This was very yummy. For those complaining it was tasteless, you need to remember it's english muffin bread...it has very little flavor when untoasted and without butter or jam. You have to get it hot and toasted to be good!

Drop Biscuits and Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
Very easy and tasty. I doubled the gravy recipe and quadrupled the biscuit portion to feed my family, though.

Burger or Hot Dog Buns

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
Nope. Flat, dense and heavy. They just didn't really rise (and I primed my yeast, too). While the flavor was okay, they just weren't buns. Also, the number of servings is way off, unless you like tiny buns. Just didn't work for me at all.

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
This is a perfect pumpkin bread. I couldn't bring myself to use so much oil, so I subbed in 1C unsweetened applesauce (with 1/2C canola oil). I'll probably work my way to using only a tiny bit of oil. Other than that, it makes a huge quantity of bread, which I love during the holiday season. It's simple, uses ingredients I usually have on-hand, and smells amazing. I also used the entire 28oz can of pumpkin, rather than measuring out 3C, and it came out perfect.

Naan

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
Mmmm. My Indian husband tasted one and said that the flavor was spot on. I thought these were even better than what I've had in restaurants, and they were easy. I had no issues with the dough rising, but I primed the yeast (add a tbsp of sugar to the warm water and yeast and wait for it to get foamy).

Grilled Chicken Thighs Tandoori

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
Excellent, excellent, excellent!! My husband's Indian, but tandoori chicken isn't among the recipes I've inherited from his mom. This was fabulous. After marinating, I briefly placed the thighs on my stovetop grill pan to partially blacken it and get the grill marks. I then baked it in the oven on a rack in a roasting pan for about 40 minutes at 375. The whole family loved them.

English Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
Incredible! I will never buy store english muffins again. They're so easy and tasty. Very chewy, and a thousand times better than any I've had before. My family ate all of them over the course of a weekend, so I know they're worth the time it takes to make them.

Aji de Gallina

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
I used only a third of a loaf of bread, and a full loaf would be WAY too much. I also substituted regular black olives for kalamata, which I think would be too strong in this. Having followed the recipe this time, next time I'd just use my own chicken stock, and add cooked chicken to it, followed by the other steps. It was a long, unnecessary step for me to boil the meat and veggies to make stock, when I always keep homemade stock on-hand, anyway. You could also use canned stock. It'd be a good recipe if you have leftover chicken to use up.

Cinnamon Rolls I

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
Mmmmmmmmmmmmm. Perfect cinnamon rolls that my family inhaled. I started the night before, and once they were rolled and cut, I put them in a baking pan (I needed a 9x13, and it was crowded) and covered in the fridge. In the morning, I let them rise for about 45 min, then baked. I made buttercream frosting, and they were to die for.

Authentic Mexican Tortillas

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
These are wonderful! I'll never buy tortillas at the store again! I used a canola and butter, since I didn't have shortening on-hand, and they came out awesome! I agree that you should cut back on the salt a little, these were pretty salty. I think the tricks are...you need very, very hot water, mix and knead with your hands, adding flour as needed to get the right consistency. Once it's a smooth ball (not dry OR sticky), it's ready. I only needed to heat for 30 seconds per side, and flipped when they started to bubble up.

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
This was delicious, although my husband thought it was too sweet (my kids and I liked it as-is). I followed the reviewers, and doubled all the liquids. I reduced the olive oil to a couple of tablespoons, and that was plenty. I also lined the bottom of the crockpot with carrots, celery and onions. The tip to cook it breast-side down was a good one, and the meat was moist and tender. Since it was falling off the bone, I pulled it out, removed the meat, then stuck it back into the pot. I added some stock mixed with cornstarch to thicken it, and let it simmer on high in the crockpot for a little while longer. We had ours with mashed broccoli-potatoes, and it was tasty.

Dee's Roast Pork for Tacos

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
I made this in the crockpot, and it turned out great! For some reason, mine didn't get to the point that I could shred it, so I just sliced it up and let it simmer in the sauce. It was excellent, and made so much that I can froze half for another meal! I served it with homemade, warm tortillas, pinto beans and salad.

Fresh Pear Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
Yum. Pears were very cheap this week, and I decided it was time to try baking a pie with them. This came out great. It's similar to apple pie (flavor-wise), but still has that sweet, mild pear flavor. It was a huge hit with everyone, including two toddlers. The only change I made was, I mixed the pears with the flour, sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon. Then, dotted it all with the butter.

Never Fail Pie Crust II

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
I'd officially sworn off homemade pie crust, but my husband was begging me to try making it again. This recipe is incredible! Very simple, cheap ingredients, and hardly any time at all to make. It was buttery, flaky and excellent.
