Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
I received this recipe from my best friend and my family just loves it!! She suggested adding 1/2 a packet of dry ranch dressing to the cracker mixture instead of flour. I also coated the pieces in flour first (or fry mix) before dipping in egg. The chicken turned out perfect. We loved the recipe so much that I used it for chicken fried steak, which is now a family favorite. Tip: Be careful to monitor the heat of the oil because the coating can burn easily if you are not careful. Thanks to CASSJW and my best friend for sharing this recipe!

Chicken Stew with Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
This was my first time making Chicken and Dumplings but with this recipe it was super easy and a big hit at our house! I used a whole cut up chicken which I cooked for one hour with vegetable stock, chicken broth and water to cover (along with the spices). Then strained the chicken out, deboned and chopped the liver and heart back into the stew. Added celery, onions and carrots but no potatoes or peas. Simmered for 30 more minutes then mixed the dumplings as directed (except I added 1 tsp. of sage to the dry ingredients). The dumplings were perfect, the cooking times precise! I added a cornstarch/water thickener at the end also. The flavors were spot on (maybe a little table salt and pepper on top to finish it) and the consistency was perfect. Everyone had seconds and loved it. A recipe to impress both family and friends - this one is a keeper! Thanks Elizabeth!

Mexican Goulash

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
Loved this dish! I found this tonite after realizing I had Salsa but no Spaghetti Sauce. I followed it pretty much exact except substituted 1/4 can of tomatos with green chilis instead of corn. It added just enough heat (if you want more heat you can add more tomatos). I also used whole grain penne pasta. Will make this again- Thanks Tonja!

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
It was ALL GONE before Dinner was over! Made this as a passing dish for 12 people at Thanksgiving and it was gobbled up quick - several people had seconds and thirds! I baked the sweet potatoes wrapped in foil (put on a cookie sheet to catch the drips) for 1.5 hours at 400 degrees first. Then cooled and peeled easily. I only used 1/4 c of sugar in the potato mixture - it was plenty sweet once the topping was added. I used a hand mixer on the potato mixture and it came out light and creamy. The rest of the recipe was followed exactly and it came out perfectly proportioned in a 9x13 glass baking dish. Thanks for this great Holiday recipe!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
I made these for my cookie trays for friends at Christmas but thought they were just "okay". For some reason mine did not come out "soft" but more like a ginger snap. Maybe from making them too small (I rolled about 3/4-1 inch balls). They werent as spicy as I thought they would be. I prefer a more "molasses" tasting cookie.

Soft Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
I made these with added chocolate chips to the batter. I flattened them after rolling into balls. I made a thumbprint impression in the top of each and added seedless raspberry jam before baking. They were soft and yummy! Thanks for the recipe!

Cranberry Nut Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
Super easy and fun to make. I used white candy coating which made them look so pretty on my Christmas Cookie Plate. I may try using chocolate next time. I mixed the nuts and cranberries together in a bowl then sprinkled the mixture on top which made them look extra colorful (used pistachios). I found that I had extra cranberry/nut mixture so would reduce to 3/4 of a cup of each next time. Thanks for the recipe!

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
Super easy recipe! The hardest part was unwrapping each candy! Read the reviews first and used square waffle pretzels & dove caramel candies. I made 60-70 of these which meant using two bags of candy. I also put the pecans on top before baking which made the recipe even easier. I stored them in the garage (in December) until making up my Christmas cookie plates, which worked out well. Thanks for the recipe.

Friendship Soup Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
Great "Italian" tasting soup plus it makes a great gift idea. Gave these to both people who liked to cook and those who did not. It is so easy, anyone can make it. It made a lot when we tried it so it lasted for a few days at our house, but it seemed to taste better each day. I browned stew meat (cut into small cubes), tossed in flour and garlic powder and browned in a little olive oil. I used a smaller 15 oz can of diced tomatos and 2 cans of tomato sauce instead of paste. We garnished the soup with parmesan cheese on top and it was really good. I made these up as gifts, putting them in wide mouth quart size mason jars with Christmas fabric on top. I gave them in a holiday basket with cotton "snow" lining the basket. I added the tomato cans, a wooden spoon and a box of corn muffin mix along with the recipe card to make it a complete gift. These were a hit! Thanks for the recipe!

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
Easy and very good! I rolled the apples in cinnamon sugar before rolling up in the dough. I used 1 stick of butter + 2 tablespoons and 1/2 c of white sugar and 1/2 cup of brown sugar to make the caramel sauce. Cooked the caramel sauce until thick and bubbly then poured it on top of the dumplings. It was plenty. Then I only used 10 oz of Mountain Dew and poured it on the sides/bottom (not on the dumplings). Served warm with vanilla ice cream - Yum!

A Simply Perfect Roast Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2012
I've tried many different roast turkey recipes over the years, but this is the basic and tried and true. I used a 12 lb turkey and cooked it just under 3.5 hours. Used a large enamel roasting pan and rack and used the roasting lid instead of foil. Basted every 45 min. and uncovered for the last hour. I let it rest 30 min semi covered and it was perfect. I added carrots, celery and onion to the bottom of the pan before roasting and the juices made a beautiful gravy while the bird rested. Thanks for posting this easy and true roast turkey recipe. I have found after all of the variations I have tried, this is simply the best.

Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
I made this recipe last night, and thought it was just ok. Maybe I should have marinated the chicken breasts first, because I felt they lacked flavor and were a little dry. I read the reviews and added seasonings to both the flour mixture and the panko mixture. The sauce and cheese combination was good but the breasts themselves just missed the mark for me.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2013
Tender, rich and flavorful!! I've made stroganoff a number of ways over the years but no more - This will be the only way I will make it from now on. Using the slow cooker is a bonus! I doubled the meat, onion, water and soup plus I added a couple of minced garlic cloves, one beef bouillon cube, 1/2 packet of french onion soup mix before cooking. Cooked 6 1/2 hours on low then stirred in 6 oz (3/4 of a package) cream cheese and a large dollop of sour cream. I sauteed some fresh mushrooms in butter and stirred those in too. Cooked another 1/2 hr on low and it was ready to serve - the beef was very tender and moist and the flavors rich and creamy. Perfect consistency as a topping for noodles, toast, rice, etc. Easy & delicious which means 5 Stars in my house!!

Berry Trifle

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
Made some of the suggested changes and this dessert was amazing! Layered it in a trifle bowl - didn't have the liqueur but used berry jam mixed with a little water to make a syrup instead. I also did not use cool whip but used my own whipped cream and I used fresh berries mashed with a little powered sugar to sweeten. I used one full cup of low fat milk and the can of sweetened milk - the custard was sweet so I only sweetened the whip cream for the top (not the whip cream that was folded into the custard). The texture and flavor was like a cross between cheesecake, strawberry shortcake and tiramisu. Delicious!

Quick and Easy Hollandaise Sauce in the Microwave

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2014
Simple and easy way to make Hollandaise - Makes enough for about 3-4 eggs benedicts. I used 1 tsp of lemon juice & added 1 tablespoon of mayo to the mix right before drizzling in the melted butter. Microwaved for 15 seconds, whisked and microwaved 10 sec intervals whisking in between. Sauce thickened each time it was heated. It took 3 times of heating before it was the consistency and temperature I wanted. I won't make it any other way from now on! Thanks

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: May 20, 2014
Great base recipe! I added fresh sauteed mushrooms & 2 cloves of minced garlic with the onion, a handful of diced ham and used 2 c of Muenster and 1 c of sharp cheddar (I may switch those ratios next time). Topped the quiche with halved cherry tomatoes before baking. Baked it longer (40 min) until the edges looked done and slightly browned. We are on a low carb diet and didn't even miss the crust one bit. Very flavorful as is yet I will be experimenting with other add ins in the future.
