Mandarin Chicken Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
This is fantastic! Left out the pineapple :( because hubby doesn't like it but it was still scrumptious. I used whole wheat tortillas, low fat cream cheese (not fat free), chopped extra bell pepper and onion (I love them) and didn't use as many cashews. Worked out great and we having them again tonight! LOL!

Italian Cream Cheese and Ricotta Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
We loved this cheesecake. DH is a cheesecake freak and I do believe that this is now his favorite cheesecake recipe. The texture is light and almost "egg custard-y;" almost like egg custard pie. If you're looking for dense, super smoothe, NY-style cheesecake, you need to look at other recipes. The ricotta cheese is prominent as well as the texture. Mine cracked horribly but I followed the recipe and method to a T. I do believe the temp needs to be at 325 degrees farenheit and the cake would probably benefit a water bath while cooking to prevent the cracks. The flavor is absolutely wonderful and, if covered with a sauce, is presentable. Oh, and I love the fact that there is no crust!

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
Love this cake! Its so easy, too. All I had were sweet Gala apples and I could have decreased the amount of sugar by half a cup and it still would have been sweet enough. The apple texture turned out fine, too. An easy cake with simple, autumnal flavors and, for the most part, budget friendly, too. Thanks!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
A+ chili recipe! It has just the right amount of spice and kick to it so you don't have to keep reaching for a beverage to douse the fire. Really, really easy to make (just chop and drop for the most part). Its tasty with or without the extra "fixin’s" (shredded cheese, sour cream, corn chips, crackers, etc). As is, it makes a lot of chili. I got about 20 standard sized ladlefuls of the stuff. Thanks for sharing!

Pumpkin Pie Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
This is wonderful especially for those who LOVE pumpkin pie (or pumpkin anything for that matter). This worked on the stove-top (as one reviewer noted) just fine. It took about 40-45 minutes on low heat and stirring occasionaly. This thickened quite nicely, too. I also used more spices, 2% evaporated milk, and "heart healthy" (no hydrogenated oils) baking mix. I also omitted the butter to keep it a bit more "healthy." The general consensus is "wonderful" and DH and I agree that served with gingersnap cookies and cinnamon bourbon whipped cream (or whipped topping) would be terrific but its great on its on with a dollop of whipped topping.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Tasty and easy. DH made these while I made Hungarian Mushroom Soup and he said they were really simple to make. The in-laws really liked them, too, so this is a definite crowd pleaser. This is a keeper.

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Exceptional soup for us mushroom lovers and it can also present as very company worthy. Instead of adding the sour cream to the entire batch (we wanted to freeze some leftovers for later on), I served the soup in pretty bowls and then added a dollop of sour cream in the middle and a sprinkling of fresh, finely chopped parsley (didn't add lemon juice because I forgot). I was afraid that upon freezing and then reheating with the sour cream already in the soup, it would seperate or curdle and look unappetizing. DH, a very open minded man about eating meatless meals once a week, loved it. We had Cheddar Bay Biscuits with it as well as a Cucumber Salad with vinegar, dill, sugar, and sour cream. Very hearty meal. Thanks for sharing!

Mongolian Beef I

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
Tasty. I had 1.32 lbs of steak so I upped the soy sauce to 4 tablespoons. I had plenty of "gravy" for rice. Also, I didn't have carrots so I used a large green bell pepper thinly sliced and doing so reminded me of pepper steak. Easy, fairly quick, affordable, and good leftovers for the next day.

Garlicky Baked Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
naples 34102 wrote that this needed no tweaking ... and they were right. I followed their advice and the recipe (to a T) and its delicious. The prep is easy yet time consuming (peeling was difficult and cubing into 1" chunks was a little ambitious and I had to go smaller) but it was worth it. DH really liked so this is a keeper (especially when this stuff goes on sale in the fall for $0.69/lb).

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
Awesome cookies! I doubled the batch as suggested by a review I had read and got 3 dozen, 2" diameter cookies using a rounded tablespoon measuring spoon. I baked the first batch for 8 minutes and thought it need to brown a bit more. The second and third batches I baked for 13 minutes and they browned nicely but after a day of storage, I prefered the 8 minute batch cookies as they were a touch softer than the 13 minute batches. DH and I are trying to budget our meals and this is a perfetct, budget-friendly treat as we always have these ingredients on hand ;) Thanks for sharing!

Delish! And easy! My husband and I really enjoyed this and the leftovers were fantastic. This was a great way to get a meatless meal in our week, too.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
Well, it *is* cake-like. I was somewhat disappointed because I was expecting this crispy on the edges and chewy in the middle chocolate chip cookie. If this is the type of cooking you're wanting/expecting with pumpkin flavor, you might as well go with a traditional chocolate chip cookie and a slice of pumpkin pie on the side ;) The only thing I did was use only a half cup of brown sugar instead of the full cup of white sugar. Doing so deepened the cookie's color and didn't mask the actual pumpkin goodness. The family liked them and DH's grandmother has requested more for Thanksgiving (pumpkin is her absolute favorite flavor ... of anything lol).

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
These were really delicious and super simple to make. To us, they tasted just like pumpkin pie. I like them plain because they are sweet enough as is but DH likes the traditional butter and syrup route. I believe maple syrup just covers up the pumpkin taste. Very good!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
Love, love, love this recipe. Simple, easy, and convenient. The recipe also works well with leg and thigh quarters as well as split breasts. Make sure you keep the skin on. It helps with the flavor and protects the meat from drying out. Besides, you can always peel it off before serving and/or eating. Great recipe :o)

Quick Yeast Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
These were a great and a special Monday night treat for DH and me. They were very easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly. The dough is extremely sticky, but that can be remedied by spooning the dough into the greased muffin tin instead of rolling into a balls. Again, really great, tasty, quick yeast rolls!

Puff Pastry

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
Easy, easy, easy! And tasty! I divided the dough so that I could use some now and then freeze the rest for later. I didn't refrigerate the "now" dough and it turned out pretty good; really tender before and after baking. I rolled, cut with a cookie cutter, baked, and then sprinkled with ample powder sugar when they came out of the oven. We ate them as cookies :o) We're thinking of using this as a pot pie crust (sweet and savory pies).

Coffee Icing

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2010
Very tasty recipe and very easy. DH, DG, and I like really strong coffee flavor so I boiled 1/4 cup of water and added a 1 1/2 tablespoons of instant coffee; I only used about 3 tablespoons of this. Also, I only used about 3 tablespoons partially melted butter instead of a quarter cup (I thought I had a quarter but apparently not). Whipped up nicely and spread pretty well on the chocolate cinnamon sheet cake I made. Will definitely use again!

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
Easy, peasy ;o) DH said that he's never liked scones and I wanted to prove him wrong ... and I did. These were moist and tender and he was delightfully surprised.

Glazed Cornish Game Hens With Apricot Pistachio Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
I used this recipe for a post-Christmas dinner for my in-laws. I wanted something different from the tried and true turkey and dressing or ham. My family LOVED it. You will definitely need more of the glaze; it's so good. I'm thinking of using the glaze as a substitute for barbeque sauce this summer when we grill chicken or pork. My mother-in-law complimented me on this dish by saying it looked like something you'd get at a fancy restaurant. I beamed! Very tasty, easy to prepare and makes a GREAT presentation.

Coconut Cream Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
I made this for my husband's lodge for one of their "potlucks" and it went over beautifully. There were two coconut cakes and mine was gone within 20 minutes and the other cake only had one slice taken out of it :D I did make some adjustments (couldn't fine coconut cream so I used half cream of coconut and half coconut milk) and I made it in 9x13 cake pan (easier travel). Using this recipe I did learn that whipped cream can stay fluffy and nice overnight - YAY! I didn't use all of the sugar to sweetened the whipped cream since the cake had all that numminess soaking into it and it turned out great. I've received requests to make this every potluck! Thanks!!
