This recipe is wonderful, however, I did add some chopped cabbage & rutabaga to the soup & it really upped the flavor.

This is one awesome recipe! This pie crust turns out so flaky & tender. It's the only recipe I use now.

Fresh Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
This is such a wonderful pie! Followed the recipe exactly as written except I forgot the butter but it sure doesn't need it. It was not "soupy" on the bottom at all. Will definately use this recipe from now on!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
This is a wonderful recipe. By the time I found this, I didn't have enough time to put it in the slow cooker & still get it done in time for dinner so I cooked it in a pot on my stove. I browned the chicken a little at first then added the rest of the ingredients (except the biscuits). I only had 1 can of cream of chicken soup & 1 can of cream of celery so I mixed them together & also used chicken broth instead of water. I added the "dumplings" about 20 mins. before we were ready to eat. I cooked them about 10 mins. with the cover on & then another 8-10 mins. with the cover off. I also added about 1/2 tsp. of poultry seasoning & maybe 1/4 tsp. of garlic powder. Well, let me tell you, this is a wonderful recipe & so simple. My husband loved it & he was always used to homemade dumplings from scratch. They turned out nice & fluffy & the taste was awesome! Thank you for posting this recipe. It is going in my recipe box as a favorite.

Cinnamon Rolls III

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
These are absolutely wonderful! They stay moist for at least 2 days after baking...that is, if there's any left!

Divine Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
WOW! This is one supergood recipe. I never used to like homemade spaghetti sauce because they were always lacking in flavor..but not this one..it's yummy! This time I used fresh tomatoes out of my garden because it's that time of year (guess I used about 10 med. size) plus I cut back on the Italian seasoning & only used about 1 1/2 Tbsp. & it was just right, not overpowering. Also, used only 2 bay leaves. With any spaghetti sauce, (even the jar stuff) I always add about 2 Tbsp. of brown sugar as it takes the "bite" out of the tomatoes from the acid in them. My sister-in-law told me about this years ago & I've been doing it ever since. Thanks for a great recipe Lana!

French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
This soup is to die for! Wonderful flavor..yum. The only thing I did differently was that I added about a Tbsp. of olive oil to the butter so the butter would not burn & also, I didn't have fresh thyme or parsley so I used about 1/4-1/2 tsp. of the dried stuff. This soup has such a rich flavor to it. If I could, would give it 10 stars!

Pistachio Mallow Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
OH YUM! How can something so simple taste so good? I did something a little different with this, however. I followed the recipe exactly as written except I only chilled it for about an hour & then put it in a graham cracker pie crust as a dessert. I did have some of the filling left so will serve that with dinner tonight. Two meals in one recipe..now that's a bargain!

Irish Bacon And Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
This soup is great. I only gave it 4 stars because I think it definately needs more chicken stock than is called for. I was making a double batch of this but I ended up using 4 (15oz.) cans of chicken stock & that was just about right. Also, I used regular bacon & cabbage. I added the cabbage about an hour before we were going to eat as I like my cabbage really cooked & not crunchy. It also allows the cabbage flavor to permeate into the soup better.I did add 2 Tbsp. of dried minced onion & some "little smokies" sausages that I cut up & that really upped the flavor quite a bit. All in all, a very good recipe. My "soup group" loved it!

Irresistible Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
This is a wonderful recipe. Served it for lunch today along with Irish Bacon and Cabbage Soup from this website. All the other soda bread recipes I've tried have been rather bland & dry but this one was a huge hit with my guests. Nice & moist with just a touch of sweetness. I noticed the picture that was with the recipe looked like it contained raisins so I added about 1/2 cup of them to the flour mixture & it was just about right. This recipe will definately be added to my favorites! EDIT: March 16, 2010 Just a note to tell you that you really should bake this in 2 pans, not one. I forgot about that, baked it in one larger pan & the middle did not get done, even though it tested done with a toothpick. I put it back in the pan, back in the oven for another half hour & it still was a little "doughy" so I sliced it & put it under the broiler until golden brown...YUM..wonderful!! Served it with Colcannon Soup & fresh fruit for dessert.

These are so good! Nice & moist. I didn't have cajun seasoning but used creole seasoning instead with the addition of a little chipotle spice...yum! Very good recipe.

Strawberry and Feta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
This is a wonderful salad! My husband (who is NOT a big salad fan at all), gobbled it up & said it was great, which is a big compliment! We both loved the dressing for it. The only change I made with it was to use a very light tasting olive oil instead of the vegetable oil & it was super. Will definately be keeping this recipe.

Blueberry Pie

Apple Cinnamon Turnovers

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2007
These are wonderful,although I goofed on the recipe. I didn't pay attention too well & instead of dividing the cinnamon, I added all of it to the apple mixture! Wow,it was really cinnamony! But,still very good. When I make these again,I would add just a touch of sugar to the filling,maybe 1 tsp. Also, I didn't have any biscuits so I used crescent rolls (pinched them together to make 4 rectangles & frosting on top..yum!Baked at 375 for 14 mins.

Oh, this is yummy! I did not use the lemon extract & it was just fine. I used fresh raspberries & blueberries for the fruits. Will definately make this again.

Wonderful Banana Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2006
Oh my, this cake is wonderful! The only change I made was to substitute applesauce for the oil called for on the box. Makes it very moist & cuts down on the calories. I frosted it with "satiny chocolate glaze" from this website & topped that off with chopped walnuts. Excellent!
