French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
These rolls turned out beautifully. They also froze well. I will definately use this recipe regularly. UPDATE: After having made these more than half a dozen times I decided to change them by making them egg rolls today. I had reduced the yield to make only 8 rolls. I beat one egg in a measuring cup and added enough water to make the total amount of water called for in the recipe (substituted an equal amount of egg in place of water). If I were making a full recipe I would use two eggs. I didn't add any food coloring as commercial egg breads and rolls do but the flavor was similar to good commercial egg breads and rolls. Nice and soft and moist and delicious. This recipe is really a valuable addition to any recipe box.

Simple Carnitas

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
Simple and simply delicious! I wanted to make this for Halloween and knew it would be a busy day so I made it in a crockpot. I left the roast whole and browned it first on all sides. Then threw it all in the crockpot with some chicken stock. On high for six hours and .... perfection. Other than browning it first and using half the salt, especially with the additional saltiness from the stock, I followed the recipe as written. Even my picky stepdaughter raved about it. Can't wait to add some Sweet Baby Ray's barbeque sauce and try it on a "French Bread Rolls to Die For" from this site. A new favorite for sure. Thanks Ken, you are a genious!

Double Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
If you like chocolate, you owe it to yourself to try this recipe! I have made it twice and received rave reviews both times. The first time, I used a traditional homemade crust. For this years' Thanksgiving, I had my stepdaughter pick up a crust, expecting a graham cracker one, and she came home with a chocolate one. Either way, this is one delicious dessert. Easy, quick, chocolate and delicious. What more could you want?

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
I made one loaf, half the recipe, using 2 Tablespoons of sugar after reading the reviews and this bread turned out perfect! I used the dough setting on my bread machine, forming the loaf and doing the second rise and baking it off in the oven. The yield was a very large loaf that was very moist and had a beautiful crumb. If you want a nice soft white bread, try this recipe. I think I will make it again this week using all the sugar called for in the recipe and use it for cinnamon rolls.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
I made this wih Tofutti nondairy cream cheese and it turmed out very well. So nice to find a dip that I can easily make lactose free! I put everything in a food processor but when I make it again, and I will, I would stir in some of the green chilis or minced jalapenos so that they are more visible. Based on other reviews, I topped with crushed crackers and baked it. Really very good!

Cranberry Pot Roast by Michelle

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
I made this today using a slow cooker and it was wonderful! I browned the beef first and then followed the recipe except that I added half of a fairly large onion. I deglazed the pan which got the sauce ingredients warm to go into the slow cooker and preserved all the wonderful caramelized beef flavor. Cooked it on low for six hours and served with mashed potatoes and cooked carrots. I didn't thicken the broth but you could if you wanted to. It was a really good dinner and I am looking forward to the leftovers tomorrow! Thanks for a great recipe!

Sweet and Sour Meatballs (Suan T'ien Niu Jou Po Lo La Tzu)

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
Very, very good! I used red peppers because they were on sale and threw in some broccoli that I had on hand. It was very colorful and really tasty. I will definately make this again and will try it with chicken soon. My stepdaughter couldn't believe it was homemade except she said she knew it was better than any of the local restaurants! Thanks QUIKSMYLE!!

BAKER'S Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
After seeing these recommended on the Recipe Exchange I made them yesterday and they will probably be my favorite cookie recipe from now on. I used the large-sized Hershey's Special Dark chocolate bars cut into chunks. I like my cookies soft and chewy and was surprised to find that these really did require 10 minutes cooking time. But after baking for 10 minutes and leaving them on the sheet pans for another 3-5 minutes, they are perfect! I will definately be making them again and again. I will be interested to try them using chunky peanut butter for extra texture.

Quick, easy and super yummy! I have been wanting to make rice pudding using Jasmine rice and it turned out delicious! As is always the case, use to best real vanilla extract possible for best results.

Trishie's Chinese-Style Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
I made this this afternoon intending to let it sit for a while before use. After tasting it to check on seasonings, I literally couldn't wait to try it on a salad! Very, very good. I might try using some peanut oil next time for a variation. Thanks, Trishie!

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
Very yummy! I made the sauce as directed. I sliced chicken breasts about one quarter inch thick and about one inch square. Tossed it in some corn starch and sauteed it lightly over low heat in peanut oil with some minced ginger root and minced garlic. This barely browned the chicken but didn't dry it out. Then I added the sauce and warmed it. This really made a very nice dish. Thanks for the recipe!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
I made this today at work. I bake for union steel workers who are constructing a new plant. The owner of our company came in today and tried my banana bread and he LOVED it! We just opened so I was thrilled to be able to show off! He is the owner of a restaurant group that grossed $22.8 million in 2008 so he knows good food and this recipe impressed him, that's how good it is.

Mike's Signature Pretzel Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2010
Why oh why did I ever try this recipe? I so don't need the extra calories but I was so totally addicted from the first bite! I had my granddaughters here so I didn't even follow the directions exactly and it still came out moist and delicious! If you are a novice bread maker don't be shy, try this recipe! I think I will try it as individual rolls, too.

Greek Penne and Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2010
This is really excellent. Like other reviewers, I used olive oil instead of butter and used less pasta. No time to get to the farmer's market for a fresh tomato and saw nice grape tomatoes at the store so I sliced them in half lengthwise and used them. I also added more garlic since I love it and I added capers. Make sure you use artichoke hearts IN WATER. I think, based on their reviews, others may have used marinated ones. Noting comments that the dish was dry, after getting the chicken pieces started I covered the pan to cook them through without drying them out. I added chicken stock to the water to cook my pasta (I ususally do for chicken pasta dishes to add flavor) and added some of that pasta water to the dish when I added the pasta. It was not dry at all. Very very good and also good reheated for lunch the next day.

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2011
Very good recipe! I used boneless, skinless breasts and cut them in half lengthwise to reduce the cooking time. I used three since I was cooking for one adult and three children. I also added four potaotes with their skin and cut each potato into 6 wedges. I broiled it all together. All of us enjoyed it. I think I might try adding fresh green beans next time and using half butter and half olive oil. But this recipe will definately be used again and again in my kitchen. Thank you!

Chocolate Mint Dessert Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
Sorry, these didn't make it for me. The brownie layer was not a brownie but a cake texture and it didn't have a rich, pronounced chocolate flavor at all. I didn't waste the rest of the ingredients. After baking and tasting the brownie layer it went into the garbage. I will try another chocolate mint brownie recipe. Zero stars :-(

Restaurant Style Mango-Chicken Nachos

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
I made this into enchiladas so that my granddaughters could eat it without making quite as much of a mess. :-) It was really great! The salsa I found was mango peach but the combination of sweet and a bit of spice was really nice. Thanks for sharing your inspiration, Maureen!
