Soft Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2014
This was so good with the 3 cups flour. I loved the taste. One trick I learned last year was to place the dough in a ziplock bag and roll it out to fill the bag. Then when you are ready, slit the bag along two sides and cut off a chunk to roll out. Didn't really need much more rolling and used powdered sugar so it would work back into the unused portion and not make it tough. Quick and easy cookies.

Potato Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
This is a good soup with a little tweaking. I agree with other reviewers; will only use 1/4 cup butter/margarine next time. Will also make sure to cook the celery/onion mix thoroughly as it was a little crunchy for my taste. I did use mostly red potatoes and they hold up better. The one very large russet gave it that nice creamy potato consistency. Added crumbled bacon and green onion to the top. Will make this again. My grandson gave it two thumbs up.

Baked Ziti with Sausage

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
I made this for friends and it was a huge hit. I also cooked the onion and garlic with the sausage, added some red pepper flakes and some diced tomatoes. I think it would have been a bit bland without these additions. Will definitely make this again.

Spicy Mexican Style Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
This dish was so good. I'm doing low carb right now so this was great for that application. I did change/add a few things that I think made is spectacular. I browned 1 lb of chorizo with the onion and then browned the zucchini. I used a can each of pinto and black beans and added about a cup of velveta and a cup of shredded pepper jack cheese. Made this for a party and it was a lot so thought I would have leftovers for the week......Nope. Not a chance. They raved and it was almost all gone, maybe one serving left. This is definitely in my line up of favorites.

Roasted Curried Chicken with Couscous

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
The chicken is amazing. I didn't make the couscous because was making a gluten free meal. I actually made the curried quinoa from this site and they were excellent together. I will use this recipe again. Don't scrimp on the spices. I let the paste set for about 30 minutes while I washed chicken and other prep work. I did make sure to put quite a bit of the paste inside the cavity and I think that helped with the amazing flavor. I was worried it would be too spicy with 1 tbsp of chili powder, but the heat was just right. And as stated in other reviews, my house smelled like an Indian market.

Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
Fantastic. I did a trial run last night for my Sunday dinner for 11. I did use the tomato paste as suggested and even took the lid off the cooker for the last hour. So-so good. I'll make this often.

Lemon Raspberry White Chocolate Mousse Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
Maybe I shouldn't rate this because I just used the mousse recipe to make a trifle with a raspberry cake. I used another raspberry sauce recipe from this site that was excellent and easy. The mousse was runny, so since I had bought a quart of heavy cream, I just whipped up the last cup and added that. After refrigeration, it was just the perfect consistency for a trifle.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
This is better than the Quaker recipe, especially if you follow the tips from others. Increasing the flour and baking powder make the cookies soft and chewy. I use 1 cup white chocolate chips and 1 cup dried cranberries. I also added some cinnamon and cloves as I like a spice oatmeal cookie. Next time I will increase salt to 1 teaspoon to counter the sweetness of the white chocolate. They are nice and soft though. I will use this recipe all the time now.

Fabulous Homemade Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
You absolutely cannot screw up this recipe.. I tried really hard, but couldn't do it. It was so great. My first try at homemade bread. I forgot to add the water with the first set of ingredients and then added too much flour. I was so flustered, the dough kneaded for 3-4 minutes. I didn't put enough oil in the bowl and the top of the dough dried out. To make things worse, the temp in the house was too cool, even with the oven on and it took two hours to rise. I was about to throw the whole mess out when it finally rose. I punched it down because of all the work I had done and put it in the pans, looking like blobs with appendages. It rose again in about an hour and I baked it. It smelled wonderful! The bread was so great. I had used a technique my daughter suggested to prevent the crust from being too thick or tough, spraying one spray of water in the oven every 3 minutes for the first 9 minutes. The crust was perfect. Even my daughter, who has been baking bread for awhile said this was a great bread (and she didn't try it until 5 days later). I will be making this a lot. The 16-yr-old male in the house even bothers to cut this for himself. Wow, thanks so much!

Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating

Reviewed: May 13, 2008
I followed this recipe to the letter and I wasn't real thrilled. It took much longer to cook and the "crust" was soggy. However, I put all the leftovers in containers and took it all to work for lunch for my coworkers. We put it on salad and it was good, though the crust was still soggy. I am going to try one more time because of the number of good reviews this got, but I will make a "crumb topping" with the melted butter so it will crisp up.

Chocolate Cookie Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
Are there more than 5 stars for a recipe. This is the best recipe I have made from this site. Truly tastes as good, if not better, than Cheesecake Factory, and costs a lot less. I made one for a friend's party using a 9 inch pan and used some of the extra batter to make three small ones for us. They all turned out perfect. The ganache really makes it professional looking and adds so much. I did not take the cream out of the cookies, just put them in my Kitchen Aid blender on chop. I have never made such an easy cookie crust. I will make it again soon!

Chicken Pot Pie III

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
This recipe is quickly becoming a TG tradition. One of the early reviewers suggested using half turkey gravy, which absolutely changes the taste and makes this a truly memorable pie. My daughter and I now get together and make up lots of pies to freeze from the leftovers. They take about 1-1/2 hrs to cook, but just popping them in the oven on a cold night turns into great comfort food.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
I haven't even gotten the tortellini or zucchini in yet and it is so good. My boys can't wait to dig in. This will be one recipe I make many times this winter and all year in fact. No doubt about it...A KEEPER! Thanks.

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2006
My first meringue pie was such a hit. The picky 13 yo even wanted seconds. My meringue was watery as noted by other reviewers, so next time I will use a different recipe, which will be soon, maybe even next weekend. I absolutely loved this pie. A real keeper.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2005
I made the changes suggested in some of the reviews and this soup was a hit, even with some teenage boys who came by that night. This is definitely a keeper recipe, with fresh brocoli and some cheddar cheese.

Easy Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2005
I made this cobbler with fresh peaches, nectarines and raspberries. It was pretty easy and quick to put together, but I'm not that impressed with the final product. I was disappointed in the filling, especially since I used three boxes of fresh raspberries (which are hard to come by in So. Cal. The juices were thin and not set very well. I had read the reviews and had cut the cream cheese and butter into the cake mix. The topping tasted great, but next time I want cobbler, I'll use a more traditional recipe.

Mocha Blanca Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2001
I loved the taste of this cheesecake. Not so chocolately that you can't eat a piece, moist and creamy. I think I will make the crust half again as large as I like a thicker crust on cheesecake. It was a hit with friends! A keeper!
