Linguine with Chicken and Vegetables in a Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2014
This is delicious. We did everything pretty much according to the recipe, though we did include a yellow summer squash in addition to the zucchini. We also included a red bell pepper and used half and half rather than heavy cream. It is excellent.

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2014
These are the very best baked fries I've ever tried. I make these as written, just with a bit of kosher salt usually thrown in with the spices. I also use an oven heated to 400 degrees and I do turn them part way through the cooking time. I just pull them out when browned and cooked through-- about 30 minutes or so. I've been making these potatoes about once a week for several years now and everyone loves them.

School Lunchroom Cafeteria Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2014
Perfect rolls. The only change I made was to add a tiny bit more salt than called for, perhaps 1/4 teaspoon, as per another member's suggestion. I've made these twice and will again and again as they get scarfed down instantly. I cannot recommend the recipe strongly enough.

Steak Salad

Reviewed: May 11, 2013
This is wonderful. We followed the recipe pretty closely, only omitting the bell pepper and using cherry tomatoes rather than regular ones. We also made extra dressing and used it to marinate the steak for a few hours before cooking it. We'll be making this often, especially in the summer.

Slow Cooker Apple Cider Braised Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
This is the best pork we've ever had, no question. We even overcooked it (it did "fall apart when handled) and it could not have been tastier. The only change we made was to omit the shallots and use bit of dried onion and onion powder in its place (I am not an onion person). Will cook this again and again.

Aunt Anne's Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2012
This is a great, easy coffee cake. I baked this according to specifications exactly (except I did use brown rather than white sugar in the topping) and it came out delicious. I even used the 9x12 pan (and thought it was going to be a mistake). It rose beautifully. I'll make this again for sure.

Paul's Pumpkin Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2012
Wonderful bars. I took another person's advice and used half brown sugar and half white, 3 eggs rather than four, and coves, allspice, ginger and extra cinnamon. I also have an oven that likes to cook hot so they were done in 15 minutes. These are amazing. I'll be surprised if there are any left after this evening (and there's only 5 people in my house). Thanks!

Fluffy Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
Yessiree, these are as good as folks say they are. I don't know why, considering the fact that there's nothing radically different or unexpected about the ingredient list or directions, but I followed the instructions exactly and turned out the best batch of biscuits I've ever made. This is the new biscuit recipe around here for sure.

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
This is the best ranch ever. I follow the recipe exactly (using mayonnaise for salads) and cannot stop drizzling it on and dipping things in the stuff. Quick and delicious!

Chicken Fried Steak I

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
This was a great recipe. I followed another reviewer's advice and floured, egged, and re-floured carefully. This seemed to do the trick of keeping the breading from falling off: only one piece had part of it's breading fall off. Yummy and easy recipe.

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
Very, very good French toast. I followed the recipe exactly (well maybe I added a tiny tad extra vanilla and cinnamon) except I used regular white bread rather than any especially thick stuff. The flavor is not mind-blowingly different than the taste of my usual recipe, however this is much less soggy and you don't get those weird streaks of thick egg on certain pieces. This toast is more consistently attractive and less mushy than other recipes due to the flour.

Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
I have made a few changes but now LOVE this recipe. 1) I add a teaspoon or two of garlic powder; 2) I at least double the bouillon and use this for gravy, 3) my chops only need about 25 or so minutes to cook. You do not want to overcook these chops. It may seem odd to use beef broth with pork (I thought so anyway) but you will be pleasantly surprised.

Quick Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
Very, very good. I doubled the recipe, hoping for leftovers for breakfast. My kids have ensured there will be no coffeecake for breakfast, they gobbled the stuff so quickly. I did add about 1/4 cup extra milk, slipped about 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour in with the white, and mixed the melted butter right in with the brown sugar/cinnamon topping before sprinkling it on top. This is easy, uses readily available ingredients, bakes in only 15 or so minutes, and tastes just like coffee cake should. Yum.

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
This is the perfect chocolate icing recipe. I followed it exactly except that I used 2% milk in place of the evaporated, and ran out of cocoa so used a few tablespoons less than called for. One and a half times the ingredients made enough to fill and frost a nine inch two layer cake generously.
