Italian Beef Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2007
I've been making this recipe for years and it is quick and easy, with great taste. Kind of a short cut to french dip sandwiches!

Orange Cream Milk Punch

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2007
Excellent punch! It works great for parties, baby showers, any event! And to answer bobbybaby, the product is actually called sherbet, not sorbet. We don't call sherbet sorbet either and I'm not sure what you are talking about with the "powdered stuff", must be an australian thing! You will find sherbet in the ice cream section of the grocery store. Good luck, it's a great recipe!

Toasty Egg Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2007
We eat these frequently, but usually choose to use fresh italian bread in place of the toasted bread. We don't toast it and leave out the butter. Very good and quick!

Praline Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
I did not care for this recipe.The bottom layer would not come up from the pan, despite a nice coating of Pam. The top layer would not spread over the bottom layer.

Cheddar Puff Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2007
These were good, but they definitely need more garlic, as we really couldn't taste it with the amounts called for. I also added oregano and parsley, as well as a bit of salt, but left out the pepper and the onions. In addition, after reading other reviews that they did not puff up, I added 1 tsp of baking powder and they rose nicely. When they came out of the oven, I brushed them with melted butter. Pretty good, but need more garlic, I'll make them again and play with the recipe a bit.

Terrific Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2007
I must admit, I took some liberties with this recipe, but it turned out very well! The main thing I did was use ground beef, rather than turkey. We prefer beef and the rest of the recipe looked so good, I took a chance with it. I also upped the tomato paste and lessened the beef broth, because the chili was so runny, and still had to strain out some liquid to have a chili rather than a soup. I did not cook the beef in vegetable oil either and left out the zucchini completely. When it was all done I let it simmer on low for 30 minutes and the flavors came together wonderfully! I served it with cheddar garlic biscuits and we had a great meal! Will definitely make again!

Easy Peasy Rice Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2007
I agree with the last reviewer--what is with all that water?? If I bother to make this again, I would completely eliminate the water and cook the rice in the chicken broth. Also, there are far to many peas, I would rather a pea and carrot mixture in this. The cheese needs to be spread through the dish, not just on top. And I think I would drizzle some melted butter over the crushed crackers.

Cinnamon Nut Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
This is pretty good, but I've made better coffee cakes. The batter was rather thick and I could not get the layer of topping in the middle. When I tried to spread the remaining batter over the topping as the recipe calls for, the topping just mixed into the batter. The cake had a nice consistency and the topping had a nice flavor. I may make it again.

Chocolate Frosting IV

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
Way too thin. I wonder if an ingredient wasn't left out, or perhaps it the white sugar should be substituted for confectioner's sugar? Even so, I think it calls for far too much liquid. It was really even too thin for a glaze.

Grilled Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
The soup isn't bad, but what's with the name? Why is it called "grilled" when the chicken is fried in a pan?

Parmesan Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
Made some changes that brought this up to a five star rating! One, don't melt the butter, soften it. Then mix the other ingredients {I omitted the rosemary and left out the garlic salt in favor of additional garlic powder} in the with softened butter and spread on the bread. When you have only five minutes of baking time left, add a liberal amount of mozzarella cheese to the top. After five minutes it will be just melted and nice and gooey when you take it out of the oven! Perfect!!!

Easy Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
This recipe was NOT good as listed, but when I substituted ranch dressing for the french and italian bread crumbs for the corn flake crumbs, we had a winner! The cornflake crumbs do not seem to work with the dressings {flavorwise}, but the italian bread crumbs worked beautifully!

Broccoli Shrimp Pasta Toss

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
Very simple, but rather bland. I think it would be good with a scampi like sauce and some tomatoes added in, served with a salad and french bread.

Hearty Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
Nice variation on scrambled eggs, but I agree with the last reviewer--definitely needs more seasoning.

Heavenly Potatoes and Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2007
I thought this was pretty good, however my husband did not like it at all and my 2 year old would only take one bite! I did make a few changes to the recipe, and I thought it was pretty good. I halved the recipe, and used half sour cream and half cream cheese. I also doubled the soup, and the mixture didn't quite coat the potatoes. I added in some bacon and used crushed cheddar garlic croutons for the topping. Also, 30 minutes was not enough bake time. I had it in the oven for 50 minutes and some of the potatoes were still not cooked through, so you definitely want to allow for some additional cooking time. Since I was the only one who liked it, I won't make it again, but I would recommend that you try it!

Manicotti Italian Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2007
I've been making a recipe like this for years, the only thing I leave out is the mushrooms, as they are not a favorite around here. Very good recipe, nice flavor and easy to prepare!

Sausage Egg Muffin

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
I didn't like the use of sunny side up eggs, but once I tried them again with scrambled eggs, we had a winner! Served with home fries, very good. Thanks!

Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2006
I used cream of chicken soup, but other than that, made the recipe as listed. It was good, but nothing spectacular. Might try it again.

Slow Cooker Italian Moose Roast Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2006
As moose isn't a big thing here in PA, I used this recipe on a rump roast. It is great! Taste is good and meat is tender from the slow cooker. Will definitely make again!
