Sensational Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: May 5, 2014
My husband had a cold and felt lousy. I needed something fast and comforting. This was perfect. Nothing fancy just a good base recipe to which you can add your own spin. Leftover chicken broth and chopped chicken in my freezer--check, leftover peas in the freezer--check, love onions-chopped 1/2 onion and thinly sliced some baby carrots. No celery--used celery salt instead, perfect. Needed additional broth so I used instant chicken bouillon. Threw in extra noodles. Lunch in 25 minutes!

Cranberry Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2013
Absolutely a six star recipe. I chilled the dough before scooping the cookies. . Made them with and without walnuts and both ways are great. As did others, I used the juice from the grated orange. I used a hand spinner chopper which coarsely chopped the cranberries and also left some whole. My favorite cookie recipe of all time. Make it as is and you will more than enjoy the result. In my opinion if it ain't broke don't fix it. BUT some of the suggestions do sound intriguing. Love, love this cookie. I can't wait for my cookie exchange party where this recipe will make me a star!

Orzo Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2013
I made this for a 4th of July potluck and loved it. I tripled the recipe for a crowd, and it was the perfect size for the gathering. There were a couple of servings left which I enjoyed over the next couple of days. The flavor was enhanced by time. I highly recommend this pasta salad and am delighted to have it in my recipe box.

Easiest Pot Roast Ever

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
Because I was having guests over for dinner after church I prepared the vegetables and meat the the night before. I used 6 large red potatoes, 3 small-medium onions, some celery for flavor, a few more carrots, and floured and browned the roast. After placing the vegetables and roast in the crockpot I covered the meat with Montreal seasoning and Lipton's onion soup mix. After pouring in the beef broth, I then placed the crock in the refrigerator. At 5:45 a.m. I turned the crockpot on high for 3 1/2 hours then turned it to low when I walked out the door. Returning home at 12:45, I put a bag of frozen peas in a casserole dish and microwaved it for 8-10 minutes. Dinner is served! The key to a tender roast is choosing one with lots of marbling. Cooking it on low for 8 hours would have been my preference but I was a bit short on time. Thanks to all who made suggestions so I could adapt the basic recipe using a few things already in the cupboard. I have made this before with the original recipe and found it tasty and tender as well.
