Danish Meatballs with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
I'm really only rating the sauce as I needed a quick fix when my husband made kofta and used a few too many red pepper flakes. In order to save my mouth and this dish I made the dill sauce and served the kofta over Brazilian Rice (recipe also on this site) and ladled the sauce over.............WOW what a lifesaver and so tasty. I'm sure it's divine over the meatballs in this posting as well. I'm going to try it tonight over beef tenderloin. Thanks so much for the great sauce.

Dutch Babies II

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
Amazing!! I too added about a half tsp of sugar and a splash of vanilla, and baked in a glass pyrex pie plate. I took others advice and made sure my milk and eggs were at room temp. It came out great the very first time. I will make this again and again. Thanks so much for the post!

Brazilian White Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
This is an excellent rice recipe! Don't forget to add a full teaspoon of salt as that is the magic that makes this dish. I found that 4 cups of water is a bit too much since I like my rice firm and fluffy, not sticky so I reduced my amount to 3 1/2 cups. I used Basmati rice and it was flavorful and perfect! You won't be disappointed with this one.

Cinnamon Bread I

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
I would rate this as just OK. Will not be making it again. My loaf was a bit on the dry side for a dessert bread and the flavor just wasn't there. I made the recipe as written other than combining dry ingred. and wet seperately then mixing.

Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
An excellent dish! I read all the reviews and tweaked this one to perfection. You must use the leanest ground beef available. To decrease the salty flavor I first sprayed my roaster/crockpot with PAM then covered the bottom with thin potatoe slices. I used lower sodium cream of mushroom 1 can and cream of chicken 1 can in the sauce mixture. When blending the ground beef with the dry ingredients you need to use your hands and "over blend" until the mixture no longer looks like ground beef but beef "paste". The rest of the recipe was as written and it could not have been more delicious. This one is definitely going into my rotation. Thank you so much for this post.

Cherry Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
OK this is a very sweet dessert, but delightful none the less. I did add a few ingredients as this to me was more of a "starter recipe" for all the wonderful variations you can think of. I added one package of philly cream cheese softened, a handful of mini marshmallows, and a handful of "toasted" walnuts. I was contemplating adding pineapple tidbits as another suggested but I think for now I'll leave it alone. I will make this again. Oh, don't forget about mandarin oranges as another alternative.

Chicken Paprikash

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
This was an exceptional recipe, the sauce was creamy and flavorful. I had trouble with the dumplings being too tough so next time I will modify and make with homemade noodles. I used chicken tenders since thats what I had on hand and only wish I had added more. Will definately make again.

Chicken Salad Spread

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
I assembled this as written and it as very good however I added a few touches of my own and it was fantastic! Before adding the mayo, I tossed the "shredded" chicken with 2 TBS of Italian dressing. After adding the mayo I threw in a handful of toasted almond slivers and "ta-dah" the flavor could not be matched. I will make often and perhaps add some sliced grapes when I have some available. Thanks for the post.

Best Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
I made this recipe exactly as written and have to agree with the others that it needs more moisture, more seasonings and more cheese. Next time I will either up the soup or add milk, additionally will put 2 cups of cheese in the casserole add salt and pepper. I think sticking with the potatoe chips is what actually saved this dish. The additional salt and crunch was welcome in this somewhat bland dish. I will make again however because it is easy and quick with the above mentioned alterations.

Tater Tot Casserole II

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
I took this to a neighborhood gathering and let me tell you, it was the only thing that completely disappeared! More of a comfort food than healthy dish, this one really delivers when it comes to flavor. I made the recipe as written and will continue to serve this one time and time again.

Mini Sour Cream Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
I used reduced fat baking mix. These were ok but I'm sure will be much better with the non reduced fat type. These are quick and produce an amazing aroma in my kitchen. Thank you for a great quick bread idea.

Coconut-Raisin Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
I tried this once and didn't have much luck with it. The custard is hardly substantial enough to hold the rice and coconut together. The flavor was fine but I prefer the presentation to be every bit as outstanding as the taste. I'll move on to another rice pudding recipe perhaps with better results.

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
I just made this today and it is fab!!! I took the suggestions of other reviewers and added some minced carrot, onion and celery by cooking briefly in olive oil. I did not get the fast cook wild rice so I increased the water by about 1 1/2 cups and let it simmer for 25 minutes unstead of stand off the heat. I used one cup of heavy cream and one cup of half and half. Additionally I only needed one quarter cup of the flour mixture. The soup came out beautifully (eye appealing) and so full of flavor. I have my bread maching going now and can't wait to serve this delightful meal to my family. Try this, you won't be sorry.

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
Absolutely the best bread ever out of a machine. I will never buy the box mixes again. I used regular packaged yeast and increased the salt by 1/2 tsp as recommended by another contributor. This one will stay at the top of my recipe box

Coconut-Cornflake Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
Couldn't be easier! You get the crunchy and chewy in one very delicious cookie. Like the other reviewers, I reduced the sugar and the morsels were plently sweet. Ill definately be making these again, my family loved them!
