Mushroom Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2008
Good and relatively easy. I used skinless boneless chicken thighs, which was very tasty since thighs have more fat! Also used a combo butter/olive oil for saute. Served with a side of tortellini and was a great meal.

Popovers

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
My oven is new and right on tempature wise (I also use an oven thermometer) but these turned out very brown. I even stopped baking after 10 minutes at 350 degrees. I did bake for the full 20 at 450 degrees. Maybe 10 minutes per temp. would work better?

Quick Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2008
Very easy and makes just the right size if you aren't feeding a lot of people. I used a combo of 1-1/4 cups flour and 1/4 cup cornstarch to replace pastry flour because I didn't have any pastry flour. I also made a frosting of about 2 cups powdered sugar/1/4 cup cocoa and about 2 to 4 tablespoons vanilla soy milk. Made the for a lactose intolerant 4 year old who thought it was fabulous. And he is honest and picky! The texture isn't like a regular cake though so be prepared for a slightly more "dense" cake.

Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2008
Really good and easy. Used king arthur "white" whole wheat flour for all the flour (3 cups.) Also used Heffeweizen beer. Topped with 2 tbls. melted butter and used convection toaster oven at 325 for about 35 - 40 minutes. Came out moist and flavorful. If top starts to brown too much before it is done tent a bit with aluminum foil.

Never Fail Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
Very basic and great flavor and really you can't fail. Use unsalted butter. Good base for different chips too - I like white chocolate and 1/2 tsp. almond extract.

Sweet and Tangy Slow Cooker Bar-B-Q Pork

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
I too boiled the meat for 30 minutes as other reviewers suggest. The sauce is quite tasty and the meat just falls of the bone. If you are looking for a thicker "stew or chili" like sauce this isn't it - it is more like soup but very good. I wouldn't call it all that sweet though which is fine with me but hubby wanted a sweeter taste. But that all can be adjusted the next time around. He can also just add more sugar to his.

Mozzarella Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
Just ok - not a whole lot of flavor but if you want mild and easy this is for you. Be sure to use a drinkable white wine. It is true that a wine's flavor concentrates when cooking. Bad wine = bad flavor. But this recipe is a good base recipe to play with. Next time I make it I might use Fontina cheese, Italian seasoning and maybe some chicken stock and cream with the wine sauce. I'd also probably just roast the chicken separately then pour the sauce over it.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
very good and really pretty easy. I also did half and half butter/olive oil. I also pounded the chicken breasts to 1/2 inch thickness. Don't skimp on the cream - really makes it so good and of course rich.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
Easy and great flavor. I made them into bars by spreading in 13X9 pan and baking at 350 for 25 minutes because I do not have the time or patience anymore to make cookies! I sprinkled the cinnamon sugar mixture on top. They turned out great.

Monkey Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
So good! Easy too. I used a bundt pan since I think a tube pan would have leaked all over the oven. Also used two cans of 16 oz jumbo buttermilk biscuits. Accidently got low fat ones and it still worked. Had plenty of ooey gooeyness. I think the folks that ran out of the sugar mixture maybe used instant pudding. That has much less than the cook and serve. You have to use cook and serve.

Ginger Cream Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2007
good flavor and easy to make. had to substitute for self raising flour a mixture of 1-1/2 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt for every cup of flour. Also, did a frosting of powdered sugar dash salt butter vanilla, few tablespoons coffee and few drops of molasses. yum!

Beer Margaritas

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
So simple so good. Great base recipe. I used Coors beer and it was great. I think I added just a bit more tequila but I like my margaritas to pack a punch. Floating a bit of orange liquor isn't a bad idea either - gild the lilly.

French Breakfast Puffs

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
Very good - not quite as light as I was expecting but the taste was great. The cinnamon sugar topping and butter are the best. Don't skimp on it. If you can't afford the calories eat a salad!

Chocolate Lizzie Cake with Caramel Filling

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
I am wondering if the reviewer that thought the caramel filling was too sweet used regular sugar. Powdered sugar makes it fine.

Seven Layer Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
Really liked this a lot but how can you not? It has BACON in it! I too did half mayo/half sour cream but jut mayo would have been good too. I think the next time I make it I won't use iceberg but will maybe used mixed greens. I took this to a preThanksgiving feast and it was a hit. Thanks!

Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
soooooooooo good. the crust is what makes it - I am not usually much for pumpkin desserts other than pumpkin pie or bread but this is really really good.

Egg-Free Dairy-Free Nut-Free Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
Very moist and good flavor but was a bit crumbly. I wasn't a fan of the chocolate chip texture either - they don't completely melt so kind of odd to be biting into hunks of chocolate but some might find that OK. Also hard to get out of the pan if you just grease it - I would use flour too. The temp and bake times were right for my oven. Those that had problems likely have ovens that are off. Mine is new and digital so is spot on with the temp. Get an oven thermometer! Great investment.

Raspberry Oatmeal Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
Very quick very easy. I too added a slash of milk to the cake mix and exchanged the water for lemon juice. Great flavor that way and the milk really helps it come together. Without it, it would be hard to get in mixed through. I do think this is a good base recipe to play with - think lemon cake with coconut and nuts and maybe a pineapple jam filling instead?

Fluffy Lemon Fruit Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2007
Easy to make and makes a lot. I think it needs a larger crust - the 9 inch really almost overflows. Also, the lemon taste is very subtle so if you want a tart lemon taste this isn't the pie for you. I'd also cut the pie filling in half maybe not top it with cherries.

Banana Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2007
The banana flavor doesn't come through that much but is more of a fat substitute. It is moist and does take longer to bake (about an hour) but if it browns too quickly top with a bit of foil. (This works well with all quick breads that take a bit of time to bake in the center.) I used whole wheat pastry flour. I would call this low fat (others don't think so) since I believe that low fat means 3 grams of fat per 100 calories. A good breakfast bread.
