This was great. Cut the recipe in 1/2 and reduced the butter to 2 Tbsp and baked it in a cast iron skillet. Served it with powdered sugar and grape jelly.

Bandito Chicken Wings

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
These are really great wings. Did omit the hot pepper sauce and replaced the taco sauce with medium salsa. They went over great at our Wednesday night church dinner! Will definitely make these again.

Creamy Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
Really great. Par boiled a small head of fresh broccoli and added that to cream of mushroom soup instead of using the soup and mushrooms that were listed. Then used the water from the broccoli to cook rice in which was served with the chicken. The chicken was so tender it could be cut with a fork. This was so easy, plan on serving it for a group of 40.

Savory Turkey Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
Altered the recipe a lot so can't give it 5 stars. Used 1 can (equivalent of 2 cups) of chicken broth, 1/2 cup of pan drippings form the cornish hens I was preparing and used close to 1/2 cup flour to thicken and at serving time the gravy still was on the thin side. The flavor was great. Did follow the seasonings as given. This gave me about 2 1/2 -3 cups gravy.

Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Rosemary

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
These were better than expected. Sprinked dried rosemary (about 1 tsp) inside each hen along with 1 elephant garlic clove and the leafy tops off of stocks of celery. The lemon gave the most flavor but the combined flavors made it really good. Was expecting the breast meat to be a little dry with it baked like this but it wasn't.

Peppermint Meringues

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
Will make these again. Did add 1 drop of red food coloring and 1-2 drops of peppermint flavor since I didn't use the crushed peppermint. Used sprinkles instead. By adding the liquid I may have needed to beat the meringue longer, but it was stiff and went onto the parchment paper fine. Used a parchment bag with the tip cut out to form the meringue. Once baked they didn't have a high peak any more which was probably due to the added liquid. They were extremely light with a soft crunch.

Southern Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
These were great, lots of flavor. Didn't put in the potatoes because I was serving baked potatoes and used plain white vinegar instead of the balsamic. Also used home canned green beans (drained). Just tossed them a bit to blend with the other ingredients while heating and they were ready to serve.

Dutch Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
These didn't seem any different from the flavor of plain mashed potates. They were good but next time will add more onion and sour cream. Maybe add some cream cheese, garlic and pepper. The color was great and what a way to add extra vegetables! Maybe puree different color vegi's for different holiday meals!

Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
These were quite good. Saute'd the garlic in 1Tbsp butter with 1 Tbsp olive oil which was enough. I used elephant garlic so 1 large clove worked great. Used the Parmesan cheese in a jar so don't know how much difference this made. Also used home canned green beans so the ounces may have been slightly different but with these slight changes it worked well for me.

Chicken and Dumplings IV

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
No water for me on this recipe! Guess I really changed this up a lot. I used 1 1/2 (14 1/2 oz) cans of chicken broth. No butter and no flour and water. Used left over turkey to replace the chicken and since I was cooking for 2, cut the baking mix to 1 cup with 1/3 cup milk. The dumplings were light and fluffy just the way I we like them. The broth not being thicken, allowed the dumplings to obsorb some of the flavor of the broth. So good done this way. If you don't get light and fluffy dumplings with this recipe the baking mix may be old.

Cranberry Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
These are exceptional in flavor. Not real sweet, but just sweet enough with the icing on top. The only changes that were made was I used pecans instead of walnuts and zested an entire orange and used all of it. Half in the batter and the rest in the icing. The only problem I experienced was removing the cookies from the sheet. The underside of the cookie wanted to roll and stick to the spatula. Once placed on the cooling rack though the cookies looked great.

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
These were really quick. Made and baked all the dough in less than 30 minutes. Made these with on hand ingredience so used a yellow cake mix and zested one lemon for added flavor. Will make with the lemon mix next time for even more lemon flavor.

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
These were great. Didn't have an ice cream scoop an appropriate size so rolled them into balls by hand. The cookie sheet I used is a double layer sheet which only needed to be sprayed with a vegetable spray. The cookies came off very easy and held their shape. Did cut back on the sweetened condensed milk to 2/3 of a 14 oz. can. Baked for the 12-15 minutes and they came out nicely browned. These were so quick and easy will definately make again. They are very pretty topped off with a marashino cherry too.

Pecan Pie Surprise Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
Excellent! Will make these again. They must set and cool before cutting. After cooling the center has set and the bars keep there shape yet are still nice and moist on the inside. I did a 24 cut and with that cut it serves 24 as well. As rich as these are you only need one!

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
The flavor was great, but when baked they spread out and laid flat. This was a real disappointment, but the taste was so good just sliced them like bars.

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
Just the combo of bacon and smokies is a great flavor. Forgot to add the brown sugar on most of the smokies but when I did, the brown sugar didn't work well for me. It mostly fell off and burned hard on the baking sheet before the bacon got crisp.
