Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2012
Holy. Cow. This was fantastic! I needed to use up potatoes and ham, and this sounded good. I didn't have celery, but I threw in a few cloves of garlic. I was lazy and didn't peel the potatoes. Added some Mrs. Dash, half a bay leaf, and some parsley while the potatoes were cooking. Left out the extra salt- the ham is salty enough. The white sauce came together beautifully, which NEVER happens for me (I used skim milk). Stirred it all together, dished up with crackers and shredded cheddar. I SWEAR this tastes better than most restaurant potato soups. I like that it isn't totally creamy- just smooth. I'm seriously looking forward to the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Definitely making this one again!

Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
Wow delicious! I used a stick of melted margarine (hate the taste of veg oil in baked goods), 1 c white and 1c brown sugar, and 1 1/2 c whole wheat and 1 c all-purpose flour. I diced up 1 Granny Smith and 1 Gala apple into pretty small pieces. Baked them without the streusel topping for 30 minutes. I got 17 delicious muffins out of this! They have just a little bit of crunch around the edges, the yummy pumpkin and spice flavor, and the little surprise sweet bites of apple. This is going in my recipe binder for sure! A word of advice: the batter takes some mixing to get everything moist. I almost added extra wet ingredients because it wasn't coming together right. I'm glad I didn't- these came out perfect as written!

Diana's Hawaiian Bread Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
As it stands, this is 4 stars. With a few changes, 5 stars, easily! I cut the water back to 1 1/4 cups, used only vanilla extract, and used 2 Tb of honey and no molasses. Before I put them in the oven, I brushed them with a beaten egg. They come out fantastic every time- they're actually even more delicious the next day! I usually get 18-24 dinner-size rolls from this recipe.

Taco Seasoning Mix

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
Delicious and EASY taco seasoning! I cut the salt WAY back- I prefer to salt food after cooking. I think I use less than 1Tb. I also cut back on the red pepper since my chili powder is a little spicier than most. I used Mrs. Dash in place of the oregano because I was out! I keep this in a mason jar in my cabinet at all times. I like that I can scale the amount of seasoning to the amount of meat that I want to cook, and I know exactly what is in my food.

Applesauce Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
Delicious! These were so easy to throw together as a last minute dessert- all of the ingredients are pantry staples. Mine cooked perfectly in about 22 minutes. They're nicely moist but not soggy. Not a dense, heavy dessert like some spice cakes can be. Frosting came together nicely, too. I'm having a hard time not eating more while I type this!

Butter Cream Frosting II

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
Success! After several failed attempts, this recipe yielded a nice light, fluffy frosting that spread easily... and didn't taste "crunchy" from the powdered sugar. I used my Kitchenaid for the heavy work in this recipe. I let the margarine and shortening cream for a few minutes, then added part of the sugar. When that was mixed, I added the vanilla, salt, and milk, then the rest of the sugar. I added in a few drops of food coloring (which distributed well- not streaky or grainy). I let the whole thing mix on a medium speed until it was nice and smooth. It doesn't taste *exactlly* like bakery frosting, but it's the best I've ever made! It made enough to generously frost a 9x13 cake.. with plenty left for bowl-licking!

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
Delicious! These seem like gourmet cookies! I let my butter whip for at least 10 minutes, then switched beaters and mixed in the rest. I rolled the dough into 1-inch balls, flattened a bit, and sprinkled with sugar before baking. They were just golden after about 10 minutes at 350. I didn't have any trouble with cracking on the sheets- I always bake on parchment, so that might have helped. I melted some chocolate and made sandwiches with some of the cookies- the result is darn close to a Milano cookie! Yum!

Five Minute Ice Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
So fast and easy! I had to let it harden in the freezer for a while, but it was yummy! Great for a quick ice cream craving.

Honey Wheat Sandwich Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
Yum yum! I followed the recipe exactly- let my bread machine do the mixing. They didn't rise a lot, but that may be due to ingredients or the temperature in my kitchen. My fiance ate them all in 2 days!

Cracked Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
These were really simple and REALLY good! I didn't have cream of tartar, so I used a bit more baking soda and some baking powder. My cookies spread a LOT, but they turned out almost like the big sugar cookies you can buy in delis and such. I especially liked the ones that I rolled in cinnamon-sugar!

Love Soup Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
This recipe looked really pretty in the jar, but wasn't the best taste. It had way too many starchy ingredients that overpowered the soupiness. It needs more vegetables or something. Don't think I'll be making it again.

Potato Soup Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
I made this as a gift for my relatives this year and they all loved it! After some experimenting, I found that a few changes helped a lot. I cut waaaay back on the buillion- about 2-3 tsp per batch. I also cut down the seasoning salt- I'd rather let the recipient salt to taste. My biggest tip- once the mix is made, run it through a blender or food processor until it makes a nice even powder. This makes a MUCH smoother soup- less like mashed potatoes, more like soup. It cuts the volume exactly in half, so be sure to change the directions from 1/2 cup mix to 1/4 cup. It fit perfectly in pint jars. I'll use this method again!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
This is identical to the recipe that I grew up eating.. and now baking for any time that I need cookies! I always use margarine and dark brown sugar. I've found that the recipe just comes out better when done by hand- just make sure the margarine is good and soft first. I usually make a batch half of this size, and it makes 50+ smaller cookies! For an extra rich treat, try stirring in some butterscotch or caramel chips with the chocolate ones. Yummy!

White Chocolate-Cranberry Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
My first attempt at making biscotti was a success! These came together really quickly and easily. The dough was a bit hard to "shape"- I ended up kind of blobbing it into 3 logs on my baking sheet. It still ended up looking good, though! Not to sweet, nicely crunchy, and a little cranberry tartness kick. I got about 25 good-sized cookies out of this recipe.

Pork Chops for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
This was fabulous- and easy! I used half the soy sauce (too salty), left out the ginger (didn't have any), and added about a tablespoon of honey (sounded good). I did this with 3 thick boneless chops and the full sauce recipe. 3.5 hours on high and they were delicious! I couldn't even lift them with a fork- they just fell apart. We had plenty of sauce to pour over rice. This was a really easy weeknight meal that I'll try again for sure!

Strawberry Marshmallow Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
This was pretty simple, and did taste good. My biggest complaint is that the finished frosting was kind of grainy from the Jello that didn't dissolve all the way. It was deliciously light and fluffy, just like marshmallow creme. It made a TON- I frosted 20 cupcakes (pretty generously) and probably could've done 20 more! I will try it again, maybe giving the gelatin more time to dissolve.

Sophie's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
This turned out really well. Very moist and a classic zucchini bread taste. It made a LOT- I got 3 mini loaves and a regular loaf out of it. I subbed some whole wheat flour for part of the flour and some applesauce for part of the oil- I'll probably substitute even more of it next time! Nuts and raisins would be good in this quick bread, too.

Mama's Italian Wedding Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
This just turned out okay. The broth didn't have much flavor and the meatballs didn't stay together well. It would take a lot of tweaking to make this delicious.

Beef and Onion Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
I tried this because my pantry was running low today.. it turned out pretty good, but will be better with modifications next time. It tasted too vinegar-y to me, so I'll probably use half the amount next time. Also, it needs way more seasoning than listed. It was pretty bland at first, but better when I added pepper, Mrs. Dash, red pepper flakes, and a dash of cayenne. Also, mine looked "done" after about an hour. Much longer and it would've been burning onto the pan. Good starter recipe- will save for tweaking!

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
This is hold-the-phone delicious! I made it exactly as stated. The chicken browned up nicely and was delicious when cooked alone, no extra liquids needed. I used Low-fat Cream of Chicken Soup and Neufchatel Cheese and it still had a rich, creamy taste. This is a dish to make for special occasions or company coming- very easy, but it looks (and tastes) like you spent hours in the kitchen fixing it! Bravo!
