Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2007
Made this recipe just this evening following PABLOJR's wonderful directions. This recipe is faultless and absolutely yummy! It was even better than the kettle corn at the fair because it was so fresh. Make a big batch tonight!

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2006
I confess that I altered this recipe a bit...but, it was still WONDERFUL! Believe it or not, I turned it into a 30 minute meal by using ground beef instead of chuck roast. It was so easy. I also used yellow onion, since it was what I had on hand. Other than that I followed the recipe. I browned the beef, added the onion and saute'd till tender then added the flour and beef broth. I add the remaining ingredients and the sauce came together in minutes. I served it over noodles and my whole family loved it. They even asked me to put the recipe in our 'Family Favorites' recipe box. Oh, and I didn't add salt at all. The saltiness of the beef broth was perfect. Try this tonight and you'll have dinner on the table in half an hour.

Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2005
Outstanding! Absolutely outstanding! My darling hubby has been asking for chicken and dumplings for months. With the weather turning a bit cooler, I decided to give this recipe a try. I was not disappointed, and neither was he. These are absolutely delicious. I used butter rather than margarine and I used two tablespoons rather than one. These were light, fluffy and so tender. I followed the recipe and some of the suggestions by other reviewers. Mix only until incorporated, add to simmering (not boiling) liquid and put a lid on it! Leave the pot alone for the full 15 minutes. This is now our family dumpling recipe. Thank you Carol's Mom.

Lemon Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: May 18, 2005
The lemon zest and oregano are absolutely over-powering! I added some garlic and a little olive oil, and would definitely recommend reducing the oregano to 3 tsp at most. Not memorable at all.

Apple Bacon Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2004
I made this recipe out of the All Recipes cookbook, "Dinner Tonight". If you don't have one of the All Recipes cookbook you're really missing some wonderful recipes. This one is my favorite. On to the soup: I was skeptical at first, but as I prepared the recipe the aroma filled our home. My husband came inside and asked, "What's that divine aroma?" It really is a deliciously different take on classic ingredients. I did a few things differently, but not by much. Rather than discard the bacon grease I used it to saute' the onion and garlic. I puree'd the stewed tomatoes to give the soup a smooth consistency. I used dry sherry rather than red wine and I added 1 cup of half and half at the end to make it a creamy tomato soup. As you can tell, this is not something you'll make every day. It is very, very rich. But, for special occasions it is wonderful. My husband loved it and so did our guests. I served it with smoky cheddar grilled cheese sandwiches. Wow! The variety of flavors will blow you away.

Simply Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2004
I'm going to give this recipe 5 stars for simplicity, ease and speed of prep and all around flavor. I used chicken tenders rather than whole breasts, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. My husband and son loved them and my husband said, "This is the most tender chicken I've ever tasted." The temp and cooking time is perfect. The chicken is so tender you'll be able to cut it with a spoon. No need to "add more cheese-sauce-butter, as some other reviewers have suggested. This one is simple and delicious. The flavor of the chicken shines through.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2003
Just add my 5 star review to the 300+ already here. When you've got leftover rice you make rice pudding. When you make rice pudding this should be the recipe you choose. The only addition I made was a tablespoon of real maple syrup. A terrific recipe, so easy that a child could make it. Wonderful old-fashioned flavor. This one is a keeper.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2003
I knew this recipe would be good. Over 900 reviewers can't be wrong. This was a very easy and delicious way to prepare pork chops. The chops were very tender and very savory. I added 1/2 cup of sour cream to the sauce mixture along with fresh cracked black pepper and the juice of 1/4 fresh lemon. Next time I'll make extra sauce. We served it over rice on the side and it was creamy and full of flavor. This recipe is versatile so you could easily add your favorite herbs or spices. This one goes into my recipe box at home!

French Silk Chocolate Pie II

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2003
I had no idea that French Silk pie was so easy to make. I would have made one long before now. This recipe is very simple and elegant. I added a few chocolate shavings on top. I think it's essential to have a large stand mixer (I use a Kitchenaid) as you MUST beat on high speed for at least 5 minutes after the addition of each egg. I can't imagine doing this with a hand mixer. I also chose to cream the butter & sugar for 10 minutes prior to the addition of the eggs. Using baker's sugar (easy to find in your grocery store) is also a help as it is more fine than regular sugar. After adding the final egg I continued at high speed for another 10 minutes. The filling was light and fluffy and absolutely delicious. My husband licked the bowl. It also set up very quickly and I was able to serve it within an hour. I'll be making this one again...soon!

Juiciest Hamburgers Ever

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2003
This has become our favorite way to prepare burgers for the grill. And, I do recommend them for the grill. They are, as the title suggests, very juicy and have a very tender texture. I use an 80/20 burger for more flavor. You may also reduce the amount of bread crumbs for a more meaty texture, but don't eliminate them. You can easily jazz them up by adding whatever spices appeal to you. I add a little bit of dill pickle relish to the mix. The cayenne adds a nice zing. My mother, a very picky eater, raves about these tender and juicy burgers.

Strawberry Preserves I

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2003
I've never made preserves before, because I don't know how to can. However, I had a 1/2 flat of strawberries on my hands so I decided to try making preserves. This was the recipe with which to start. Absolutely delicious. Easy to follow and full of flavor, this recipe tastes like my grandmother's homemade preserves. What a treat! The only change I made was pulsing the berries in the food processor briefly, prior to cooking. I did so that my 14 month old could enjoy the preserves, too.

Broccoli Cheese Soup III

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2003
I would love to give this recipe 6 stars, if I could. It is the picture of simplicity, but tastes like you slaved over the stove. I tried this recipe as a treat for my mom who adores the broccoli cheese soup at Panera Bread. I prepared this soup on a snowy, wintery evening (what better time for soup) and it was a huge hit. The only changes I made was doubling the amount of cheese (I used sharp cheddar for an especially zingy flavor) and adding one cup of shredded carrots, since Panera has shredded carrots. My mom and dad both declared that this soup was as delicious as the Panera soup. This one goes into my family favorites recipe box!

Garlic Lime Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2002
The flavors of this recipe intrigued me, but I used them somewhat differently. I opted for a very fruity extra-virgin olive oil instead of veg oil, increased the lime juice to that of two whole limes, added some fresh thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper. I then marinated the salmon in the mixture for 5 hours and grilled it. I removed the onions (thinly sliced, not diced)from the marinade then sauteed them , added butter, cream, black pepper and a squeeze of lime juice which made a terrific sauce for the salmon.

Fruity Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2002
I used this teriyaki-like marinade on pork loin chops, and I added some fresh, minced garlic. Ginger would also work nicely. I also substituted Dr. Pepper for a fruity soda and it was terrific. This marinade made for super tender, super flavorful pork. Did the chops on the grill and they were superb! Be sure to keep some marinade on the side for a glaze when grilling. Good job Kris!

Oh So Tender Brisket

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2002
Bob knows brisket! So easy to prepare (a no-brainer) and it tastes like you slaved all day. The onion soup mix and liquid smoke are key to the fantastic flavor of the brisket. The roasting bag lets it cook in it's own rich juices. For a savory treat, try this one today.

Baked Zesty Carrots

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2002
Delicious recipe! However, don't do as one reviewer suggested and cut down on the mayo. The sauce made "as is" was perfectly pourable...just right. I did add the horseradish "to taste" as I made the sauce to please my husband's palate. It was a winner.
