Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
I, like many, made a few adjustments to the original. I did not use celery. I boiled the vegetables and chicken in broth; used 1 c each carrots, peas & potatoes. Added 1/8 teaspoon thyme, 1 teaspoon parsley and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder to the sauce base with the flour. Mine did not use all the sauce - it wouldn't fit into my pie plate - and it was still plenty moist. Very good. My family gave it a "thumbs up", which means it's a keeper in our house. PS - took me about 1 1/2 hours total to make, including baking & making a homemade "double" pie crust.

Spicy Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
This was *really* good. Husband wanted something spicy and this fit the bill. Plus I had all the ingredients on hand! I used about 1/2 the amount of cayenne pepper powder and it was plenty spicy. Our two teen boys weren't keen on it (I don't know why... they eat raw onions but don't like spicy food?!), but I am planning to make this one again, especially since the recipe made enough for several more grilling nights! Thanks for posting!

Unbelievably Good Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
I made this for the first time for our son's Confirmation party and served the dip with a fruit salad (grapes, kiwi, strawberries, blackberries and pineapple). The dip had a great flavor, but was still a gooey texture. I did receive many complements on it but it was *really* messy. (I didn't change the recipe at all.) Instead of dipping my fruit into the dip, I drizzled it onto my fruit, like a sauce.

Sweet and Sour Chicken II

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
My husband said this is pretty darn close to restaurant sweet and sour. I took some others' advice here - changed the order of cooking around a bit, too. I added 1 clove minced jar garlic, 1 cup chopped broccoli, 1/4 cup onion. Omitted the flour and water chestnuts. I sauteed my vegetables in 1 T oil until they were crisp tender, then added the vinegar, juice, soy sauce & brown sugar; also used 1/4 cup cornstarch smoothly mixed with 1/4 cup ketchup - stirred that into it, thickened and it was *awesome*. Definitely will be making this again - fast, inexpensive, delicious. Thank you!

Muesli-Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
nom, nom, nom. My two teenage boys can not get enough of these; I've been making them for more than a year now and they're still requesting them constantly. I pack them in their lunches instead of sandwiches sometimes. I have altered the recipe: I use 1 cup all purpose flour, 1/4 cup wheat flour and 3 Tablespoons ground flax seed and 1 Tablespoon wheat germ. The museli I use has nuts and dried fruit in it, but I still add more dried cherries or blueberries. The boys know they're healthy for them and still they consume mass quantities. Thanks for posting this! It's a family favorite.
