Chicken Arroz Caldo (Chicken Rice Porridge)

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
I have also made arroz caldo with whole chicken pieces. My family asks for this especially during flu season with increased (may double or triple) amounts of garlic & ginger for their medicinal benefits -- antibacterial, antiviral, breaks fevers, clears head congestion, opens airways. More effective than chicken noodle soup.

Holiday Cranberry Relish

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
The 5 stars rating is because DH and eldest daughter loved it with raspberry Jello. Just as good the 2nd time with cherry Jello, but will do it raspberry next time. Cut down the sugar to 2/3 cup and it was still too sweet with the jello. Will keep tweaking but its going to be a regular side dish for our special occasion meals.

Easy Cranberry Orange Relish

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2013
I've been making fresh cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving for years with a whole orange (including peel and pith) and a full cup of sugar. I did this recipe as instructed. I agree with the other reviewers that the cinnamon is overkill and took away some of the cranberry-ness of the sauce. Sad. Next time, I'll stick to my original easy simple recipe with 3 ingredients.

Magic Cookie Bars from EAGLE BRAND®

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
It's a keeper. Made it for a church cookie reception, but without nuts due to allergy restrictions. The bars disappeared just the same.

Bacon Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
Heartily approved of by DH. He especially liked the crusty flaky bottom of the quiche. Used 6T of bacon crumbles (for salads) that I wanted to use up, added 3 stalks of green onions, 2% milk. Will use less bacon crumbles next time. Melted the butter in the pie plate to coat it, then poured the rest in batter mix. Did have to blot off the excess butter pooled on top of the quiche so will reduce amount to 2T next time. Also want to try it with shredded carrots. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Peach Cobbler Dump Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2012
I prefer a cobbler over cake but DH and friends raved about this recipe served with vanilla ice cream. I used 2 x 29oz cans of peaches in heavy syrup, assembled the ingredients in the casserole dish the night before, I put some of the cake mix on the bottom of the dish as recommended, mixed in instant oatmeal to the top cake mix layer. I assembled the ingredients the night before and baked it 4 hours prior to serving. I'd like to try this with other fruits as recommended by other reviewers. Next time, I will use light syrup fruits next time or skip the sugars if I use heavy syrup; put >1/3 of the cake mix in the bottom; mix in quick cook oats and/or chopped nuts with the top layer for more crunch. Thanks for the recipe.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
Excellent. Per reviewers' recommendation, subbed apple sauce for some of the oils, subbed wheat flour for some of the white. Used thawed frozen blueberries (4 cups was perfect amount) and zucchini. I gasped at the cinnamon amount, but it was just right. Sprinkled raw sugar on my muffins for a nice crunchy top. Sprinkled Quaker Oats instant apple/cinnamon oatmeal (what was available) on top of a loaf for an attractive and delicious touch.

Chicken Pot Pie III

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
DH says it's the best potpie he's ever had. Used cubed leftover Costco roasted chicken, Cream of celery + cream of chicken condensed soups, a splash of white wine. Instead of frozen veggies, I sauteed minced garlic, onions, chopped celery, chopped carrots and peas. I would've liked more thyme, but DH says this is just perfect.

Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
Tried it twice. Don't know what I did wrong but the mashed potato was getting too dried and solid, instead of fluffy.

Simple Turkey Chili

Reviewed: May 25, 2011
Enjoyed this recipe. Made it with ingredients I already in the pantry: chopped celerty and canned green beans instead of kidney beans, tomato juice instead of water, heaping T of Penzey's Chili 3000 spice mix, 2 T dried chopped onions (I was out of fresh onions), garlic powder (fresh minced is always better). Served with sour cream, mexican cheese, corn tortilla chips and green onions.

Udon Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
Made this with leftover beef/beef broth, carrots instead of red bell pepper. We reserved some of the beef broth for family members who prefer the soupy version. This is comfort food.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
Followed directions exactly. Next time will pound chicken breast to even the thickness before seasoning and dredging in flour. I'll try WHITE balsalmic vinegar.

Creamy Butternut Squash With Cinnamon Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
Flavorful fall weather treat. Will make it again without the cayenne pepper. Rich creamy texture. Tasted fine with vanilla soy milk; probably could do without the pinch of sugar.
