Braised Balsamic Chicken Dinner

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
Great menu. The chicken was very easy to make and had a great depth of flavor. I will absolutely be making again. The Orzo pastas side dish is really just homemade Rice-A-Roni only 100 times better. We love Asparagus and enjoyed the twist using seseme seed oil and toasted seseme seeds. A winner dinner with NO leftovers.

Jersey Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
This is excellent tomato soup. I saved this recipe this past summer while we were putting up our very large supply of tomatoes from our garden. I couldn't wait to make it. Well, tonight was the night. The only change I made was to use Lactose Free Whole Milk. Best creamy tomato soup ever! Thanks Shorecook! BTW, I love that there's carrot in it.

Pork Medallions with Balsamic Vinegar and Capers

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
We loved this very much. It's easy to prepare too. I followed the recipe exactly except I used Nasturtium pods instead of capers. I especially like the fresh taste the lemon zest gave to the finish. This recipe is going into my pork meal rotation in the "my menus" section of AR. Thanks Marianne. We Loved it! BTW, served with steamed broccoli and baked potatoes.

Original NESTLE® TOLL HOUSE® Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
Toll House Cookies are the best ever chocolate chip cookies. I made exactly as written. The secret to a perfectly domed cookies is "hand" mixing and NOT overmixing. These are just plain awesome...hot out of the oven with cold, cold milk. YUM and YUM!!!

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
This is the only white cake recipe I use. I make it because it's easy and very good. Light and fluffy too. Bake time in MY oven is only 18 minutes. The frosty I use is "Creamy Frosting" by Carol from this site. NOTE: Any recipe I make calling for milk products, I substitute Lactose Free Whole Milk.

Snickerdoodle Cake I

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
My grandson LOVES Snickerdoodle Cookies. He asked me if I could bake him Snickerdoodle Cupcakes for Christmas. I found this recipe and thought I'd give it a try. I substituted butter for the shortening and increaed the cinnamon to 2 teaspoons. He gave it a THUMBS UP! So, I will make it again. NOTE: Any recipe I cook which calls for milk, I substitute Lactose Free Whole Milk. It made NO difference in the outcome of this recipe.

Candy'D Sweet Potato Cupcakes with Brown Sugar Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
I get many requests to make these Sweet Tater CCs and get rave reviews everytime I do. Even those who HATE Sweet Potatoes love these little gems. They really are light, airy and delicious. Not heavy as you might expect. BTW, don't try to pipe the icing. Just slather it on. It's sweet and yummy!

Scalloped Potato-Onion Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
Easy peasy! And, good too! Recipes with a few ingredients are what I'm looking for during the week. It's a great way to "jazz" up a potato dish. We liked and I'll make again.

Baked Pork Chops and Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
This was actually pretty good! I loved that it was so quick and simple. A great way to prepare pork chops on a busy week night. I also really like using seasoned stuffing bread cubes to coat the chops. They stayed moist and came out very tender.

Vegetable Meatball Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
We loved this meatball stew! I use freshly ground sirloin and my own garden grown carrots. I also cooked it in my husband's "Dutch Oven." I will make again and again. It's quick, it's easy, it's YUMMY!

Bacon Apple Mushroom Hash with Ginger Poached Eggs

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
I created this recipe for the October 2011 Gang-Up Challange. I added one ingredient to the 10 ingredients selected. Sugar. After researching the internet, I decontructed the basic HASH formula; Finely shredded meat (usually leftover roast) and potatoes. I used finely diced bacon and apples. Most HASH recipes also contain onions and sometimes mushrooms. The recipe above is my final creation. Surprising, this was really very good. My hubby told to me... "be sure you save the recipe so you can make it again." Coming from him, that makes this a 5 Star Recipe!

Zesty Italian Crescent Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
This was easy to make and a great place to start for lots of different kinds of meat. I used ground beef, but like another reviewer said below, Italian sausage would be great or left over turkey or chicken. My family thought it was good. I'll make again, but will probably tweak some. Thanks for the recipe.

Beef and Bean Crescent Burritos

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
I love Pilsbury Crescent Rolls and I love burritos...just not together. This recipe isn't something my family cared for at all. The tecnical side of the recipe wasn't written very well either. It said to combine the cooked and drained meat, and the rinsed and drained beans with the taco seasoning mix and boil. There was nothing to boil... I did add a little bit of water so the taco seasoning would mix together with the meat and beans. Also, it was WAY too much work and use of the oven for the end result. I'd rather just put the mean/bean mixture in a tortilla, roll it up and eat it. I won't be making this again.

Bold Eagle Ranch Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
I'm not a pickle fan; especially DILL pickles. After the first bite which was on a cracker, I thought, YUKE! But, being a person who doesn't like to make snap judgements, I just put it in the fridge. I went to the store the next day and purchased some veggies. Pulled out the dip and snacked on the veggies while cooking dinner that night. Yow-za!!! Really Good! We couldn't stop eating it and ate it all gone. This recipe needs to sit overnight to meld the flavors. It's a zingy, strong full bodied dip and really good. 4 stars because of the initial taste factor.

White Bean, Tomato, and Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
I've been looking for recipes to use all the fresh tomatoes from my garden. We like bean salads and we LOVE avacadoes, so this looked like a winner. I made exactly per recipe directions. It was good, but it needs something. I think garlic or ??? I will make again, but I will most definately tweak.

Spaghetti Pie II

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
We really liked this easy, quick and INEXPENSIVE dish and I will definately make again. I used plain greek yogurt drained mixed with 1 beaten egg and 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning in place of the Cottage Cheese for Lactose Intolerance reasons (as suggested by my AR Buzz Buddies), but otherwise made following the directions. Also, I want to make note that I DID NOT increase any amounts and 3 adults ate it for two meals. One pound of hamburger for 6 adult servings? Now, that's eating on the cheap! A great bargin meal.

Onion & Garlic Biscuit Flat Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
Since I'm not a "from scratch" bread maker, I was so happy to see bellepepper's recipe for a quick and very tasty bread that would compliment any meal. My family LOVED those little bisquits. I can see a multitude of variations on this recipe too! Thank you bellepepper for sharing your creation with us. I'll be making again soon! 5 great BIG stars!!!!!

Mama's Tomato Gravy

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
This is really good. I didn't have any bacon fat, so I used butter. And, it was good; it was really good. I served over "leftover" meatloaf. I can see using this recipe in endless ways. It was very easy and I'll be making again for sure.
