Easy Chili I

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
I have tried many different chili recipes and this one is our family's favorite! We did NOT omit the jalapenos and it is not that spicy! My 3-year-old eats it. I adjust nothing and make it as the recipe indicates every time and its fantastic. Leftovers freeze well.

Original Recipe French Toast

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
I made this for my husband on his birthday and he loved it! He is a purist, he likes his French Toast without all the fuss and frills of some of these other recipes. I wasn't sure how he'd like this sweet bread, but he said its his new favorite! I made the recipe exactly as it states.

Savory Slow-Cooked Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
This was excellent. I had some misgivings when I put it in the crockpot this morning because it didn't seem like it had enough liquid to cover the chicken, so I actually added just 3 chicken thighs, about half of what the recipe called for. I used 1/2 C chicken broth, 1/2C white wine. I only used 1 onion. When I served it, it was very liquidy and I realized too late I had forgotten the cornstarch mixture, which I think must be essential. I also didn't brown the chicken, and I put it in the crockpot frozen. I cooked on low for 10 hours until I got home from work.

Caramel Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
I washed, de-stemmed, dried, and put the apples in the freezer for about 10 minutes before I started this recipe. The key to the caramel sticking (among other things) is to WAIT to dip the apples in the caramel. After you take the bubbling hot caramel out of the microwave, let it sit for a good 5 minutes. I made 2 batches. The 1st 2 apples in my 1st batch had the caramel drip right off. The rest were fine, and I corrected my mistake on the 2nd batch and they were perfect. Also, as soon as i dipped them, I put them directly into the fridge on my buttered cookie sheet.

Pad Kee Mao

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
With only 1 total teaspoon of thick soy sauce in the entire recipe, this lacked some moisture for me. My husband added a lot of extra sauce at the table, but I was never able to enjoy it. We also added the full serrano pepper, and thought it needed much more in order to compare with the Thai restaurant down the street!

David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
This cake is unreal. I've never had batter that tasted so good, and the cake itself didn't even need any frosting! I still frosted it, but I scraped mine off because I felt like the frosting overpowered the taste of the cake. I made 24 cupcakes and cooked them for 20 minutes at 350.

Holiday Brie en Croute

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
I made this recipe exactly as stated, and everyone at the holiday party raved about it! I'll definitely make it again Christmas Day. (oh, I did soak my cranberries in Cointreau instead of water, but I doubt that makes much of a difference.)

Chocolate Wafer Crust

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
I used 25 oreos, and I put them in the food processor to make them almost as fine as dust! I used 6 Tbsp butter, and cooked the crust at 375 for 10 minutes. (my pie is a no-bake pie, so I had to cook the crust first).

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2011
Outstanding. I had to cook the squash about 20 minutes longer because the noodles were too crunchy, and they came out perfect after about 50 minutes in the oven. I also used a large can of diced tomatoes in the juice instead of fresh tomatoes, and I used gorgonzola instead of feta because I love it. Otherwise, it was all the same and it was absolutely fantastic! My husband loved it, but our 2 young kids did not.

Italian Cream Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
I've made this cake 3 times now, and it is fantastic. I add 1 tsp Almond Extract for a flavor boost. I omitted it one time and did not enjoy it as much. Also, I whip the egg whites to stiff peaks and although it says fold in, its much more of a hand-mix-in to me. Once I did not mix the egg whites well enough with the batter, and the texture of the cake came out odd, and there were little burnt peaks on the top of the cakes. I also add 1 pkg cream cheese to the frosting and I frost the sides of the cake. I top with coconut and nuts.

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
This frosting was excellent. I halved the recipe and frosted 24 cupcakes heavily! I think this frosting is best on a chocolate cupcake, because the frosting is so chocolatey that it overpowers the flavor of the cake. I used it on yellow cake, and I ended up scraping off most of the frosting so I could taste the actual cake. Still, the frosting itself is wonderful.

Hot Cocoa Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
I was unimpressed. For the effort (so many ingredients!) I expected something much richer, chocolatier, and sweeter.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
I made this for my parents and husband and they all raved about it. I used 2 lbs cubed stew meat, 2 cans golden mushroom soup, 1 chopped onion, 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 cup chicken broth, 1 bouillon cube, part of a package of onion soup mix, and 1lb sliced mushrooms. After cooking on low all day, I added a little over 4oz sour cream just before serving. I served over egg noodles and it made about 6-8 servings. Wonderful!

Penne with Spicy Vodka Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
Beyond fantastic. I used the whole package of italian sausage, i used 1 4oz package diced pancetta, and I added 15oz can diced tomatoes. I also used 1/4 cup vodka and 1/2 cup cream. LOVED it!

Manicotti II

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
I've made this recipe more times than I can count, and I'm finally getting around to reviewing it! I always make some type of adjustment to the recipes I use, however this is one I haven't tampered with at all. It is excellent AS IS! I've served this countless times for dinner parties, friends, and for family. Its always a huge success. The recipe makes more than 6 servings, though, so I always freeze the extra mix for later use.

Chicken Vegetable Barley Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
I didn't have mushrooms or barley, so I substituted small noodles. Everything else I followed exactly, and it was delicious! The toasted almonds seemed strange, but they were fantastic.

Slow Cooker Chicken with Mushroom Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
I've made this recipe twice. I use fresh mushrooms and serve over rice. I get what my husband calls "the pancake effect" when I eat this. Its good for about half of my plate, then the rest kind of sickens me. It is very rich/goopy and I can only eat it in small doses, no thanks on the leftovers.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
This was phenomenal. I used exact ingredients, however I did soak my noodles in hot tap water to soften and refrigerated it overnight. I'll be making the sauce for spaghetti this week as well! Next time I'll double the sauce to save time.

Artichoke and Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
I've read other people's critical reviews on the blandness of the recipe. Most of them mention that they add the "sundried tomatoes". The key is to use PESTO. Not just sundried tomatoes. Sun-dried tomato pesto is extrememly flavorful. I usually use the whole jar, which is about 2 oz. more than the recipe calls for. It has a LOT of flavor if you use the correct ingredients.

So delicious, so easy, and it looks gourmet! I made it as-is for company and it was a huge hit.
