Turkey Tetrazzini II

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2013
This was a great base for a recipe, but I did add things to give it more flavour. I chopped up an onion, added some garlic, added some peas, and added some seasoned bread crumbs. My family liked it and my husband especially enjoyed it a lot. It was a great way to finish off the rest of our turkey from our Thanksgiving.

German Rye Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
Made the quick version of this that someone posted and it was very good. I used 3C rye and then did about a 60/40 thing (white to whole wheat) for the rest of the flour. I didn't see the point of the sprinkled corn meal on top, but I did it anyway. I confess that I still don't see the point and wouldn't bother the next time. I didn't have caraway seeds, but would try that. This was dense, but still soft and the crust wasn't hard. Pretty happy with it.

Company Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
This looked interesting and I gave it a try. I only had Marble Cheddar and I added peas and carrots and a bit of garlic. I cooked the chicken with salt and pepper and Clubhouse BBQ Chicken spice mix. There was no way I was using water chestnuts (personal preference). I only buy "Miracle Whip" and used that instead of mayo. I also sprinkled some of the Clubhouse BBQ Chicken spice into the breadcrumb mixture. It smelled wonderful coming out of the oven. It was a little goopier than I'd like and I would really cut down on the egg/milk amount. The taste was really great otherwise. I'd make it again with these changes! Very yummy!

Herald's Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
Like many others, I thought the recipe needed more. I seasoned my meat, added more garlic, used less pepper than called for, used drained canned tomatoes (diced). I have my own homemade "Bisquick" that I used on top. Yet, I still found this on the bland side and didn't like it enough to make it again. I would have rated it 2+1/2, but couldn't. Just didn't wow us.

Cherry Chocolate Nut Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
Made this recipe recently for something a bit different. I wanted to use up some maraschino cherries to boot. They have a nice, light crisp on the outside and soft and cake-like on the inside. The semi-sweet chips are just right for this cookie and the chopped cherry bits are a nice blend. I chose to leave out the pecans for our personal taste. These cookies were a big hit and a definite keeper!

Cinnamon Flat Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
This was good and quite simple. What I would change is that 375F for a half-hour is too high and too long. If I hadn't checked on mine at 20 minutes, it would have burnt to a crisp and there is nothing wrong with my oven. Next time I will bake it at 350F for 20-ish minutes, watching it carefully. I'd also use use less of the sugar-cinnamon as it was too much on a 15" round. Good tasting and fun. Hard to cut into pieces being round so I think I will use a jellyroll pan or something the next time.

Slow Cooker Party Mix

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2010
This is a great recipe. Our family really enjoyed it and it was nice to throw it into a clean ice cream pail and take it on a road trip. I'm making it again today, but I'm throwing in some Honey Nut Cheerios as well as the Multi-Grain and some Honey-Roasted Peanut Mix for that yummy sweet and salty taste! I do feel that it needs a little bit more margarine for that big amount of cereal for more coating. Some pieces had little/no flavour despite lots of mixing. So I will be upping that a little as well. Four stars! Definite keeper!

Parmesan Asparagus

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2010
My first time cooking asparagus and while the Parmesan-Garlic Salt combo was great, the asparagus was chewy and limp. Upon talking to a great chef-friend of mine, baking asparagus leads to limp and chewy and it should be cooked on a hot skillet like the other Asparagus Parmesan recipe says. I gave 2 stars because the mixture was good, but the baking process was not there at all.

Banana Bread - Quick Bread for Machines

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2010
Sorry to say that this was the first thing in 13 years of bread machine recipes that didn't work. Perhaps if the instructions were more compatible to most machines. I tried to adapt as best I could with my Black and Decker. It didn't mix nicely, didn't bake through completely. I wish it would have worked, but I'll stick to the handmade banana bread that my family loves.

Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
I followed the advice of more salt and more honey in the comments area. This is an excellent bread. Having a slice now with margarine and a drizzle of honey and it's DEEEE-LISH!!!!!!!!!!!

Baked Macaroni with Pepperoni

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
After reading the comments, I made a few adjustments to this recipe to use up some leftover pepperoni. I used real garlic, but did the salt and pepper and onion powder to taste as in the original recipe. I used a tall can of Hunt's Italian Tomato Sauce and a tiny can of Hunt's Tomato Paste. I only had Medium Cheddar and mixed a bit into the casserole, but reserving most of it to scatter on top along with some shredded Parmesan. Based on a tip I learned from having Honduran, Japanese, and East Indian roommates in my college years, I threw in a tbsp or two of white sugar. it helps take the edge of hotter dishes, tomato dishes, etc. I do that in my meat sauces, lasagna, etc. Mixing in some kernel corn worked out to be a nice compliment. I only baked this for 30 minutes at 350F. My family liked it and I'll be making it again with these modifications, though I'd like to find a slightly milder pepperoni sausage than the one I had on hand. However, that's personal taste. This is a nice change of pace, filling, and tasty.

Peach Cobbler I

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2010
This was very good and very simple. I used 5 fresh peaches, less butter, and added cinnamon into the mixture that the peaches were tossed in. Great with vanilla ice cream!

Drumsticks with Peach and Honey

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
I gave this a 4 because we liked it, but weren't 'wowed' by it as I had hoped. I doubled it since I was making twice as many drumsticks than in the recipe. Since we're in Canada, fresh peaches are not possible in February so I used two cans of sliced peaches and used the sauce in the cornstarch and water mix. I did use more cornstarch as was suggested by others. I really liked the peaches and honey taste (I used more honey). However, if I was to make this again, I think I would skip the onions and garlic all together.

Mama's Dormant Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
This was only so-so and I doubt that I'll ever make it again. Just didn't wow us, but it was fine to eat.

Delicious Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
I used gold chocolate-covered candies, along with the green and red, for part of my Christmas 2009 baking. They were different, looked pretty, and our families on both sides enjoyed them.

Melt In Your Mouth Honey Lemon Merry Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
This was only 'okay' in my opinion. I saw some reviews later suggesting other things to try. Having those improvements in the actual recipe would be much more beneficial and would result in a better product. These were not as good as I had hoped or expected They were nice and soft though.

Cherry Snowballs

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
This was one of the recipes I tried for Christmas baking 2009. They were a little messy to make at the end, but tasted good. I found the coating didn't stick the greatest so I made it a bit thicker. They were a pretty and different addition to my Christmas baking.

Chocolate Caramel Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
5 stars for taste and popularity with our family. However, the white sugar part of the instructions could be clearer for ease of understanding. I just used 1 C white sugar and then mixed in a bit of sugar with the pecan. Also I think ground pecans are an easier and better choice and that's what I used. I also pressed them down slightly with my thumb. Mine therefore came out like a flat cookie unlike the picture provided. I used a mini Rolo inside and next time, I'd probably use two. These were soft and had a great taste. My oldest daughter raved over them and both sides of our family enjoyed them a lot at Christmas 2009.

Candy-Coated Chocolates Cookie Mix In A Jar

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
I mad 17 of these as teacher, instructor, and bus driver gifts for Christmas 2009. I used old mason jars. We got lots of compliments on them and many told us how good they were and what a fun gift it was. I made 3 different kinds -- mini M&M's, Reese's Pieces, and mini chocolate=chips. DEFINITELY follow the member-suggested advice with changing the placement order or they will not turn out nice. As you can see by my submitted photo with a few jars, put the flour mixture first, then the brown sugar (packed), then the white sugar, then the candy.

Bread Machine Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
Fantastic pizza dough recipe - best I've ever found. I used milk since we don't have beer in our house. It was delicious and will definitely be made many times over. I used it for some bacon-ranch puffs the first time and they were awesome.
