Chicken Taquitos

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
Linda Mclean had a great idea using the flour tortillas and steaming them in the microwave. I tried the corn tortillas and they crumbled. So I got out my flour tortillas, microwaved them, prayed oil on a cooking sheet and spread the tortillas with olive oil. Stuffed them, and baked at 500 for 10 minutes. Perfect. Oh and I used m.Jack and sharp cheddar cheese. So good!

USMC SOS

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
I thought this recipe was simple and delicious. I seasoned the ground beef while it was cooking with Seasoned Salt, onions, and diced garlic. Then I also added (per the suggestion of some other members) Worcestershire to the cream sauce. Because of the seasonings I added, it didnt need much salt. I served it on Texas Toast and it was great!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
Recipe was great. I didnt have the butter flavored shortening, so I used regular flavored and I think it came out fine. These are great cookies and I wont be using another oatmeal cookie recipe ever again!!!!

Tangy Turkey and Swiss Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2008
The dressing is SO good, I made some and put it in a bottle in my fridge! I added spicy brown mustard, light miracle whip, paparika, and some garlic powder. Then I took the suggestion to bake the sandwiches at 450 for 5 mins on each side. I used marinated, shredded chicken breast and provolone cheese. "The Mr." doesnt like hot sandwiches all that much, but he sure loved these! They're a snap to make with leftovers and would be sooo good with a nice bowl of soup, or even the chips we had! TRY THIS ONE! You WON'T regret it!

Quick Creamy Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
This recipe was pretty good. I used the frozen diced potatoes. I just thawed them and skipped the boiling step. I also added 2 cups of sharp cheddar to give it some volume to the flavors. If I could do it over, I'd do a little less onion, and I think sour cream would be a good addition. Serve with toast (I always have butter on my toast!) or crackers.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
These cookies were SO GOOD!! I actually caught MYSELF in the bed with the tin of cookies!! I knew at that point I had to give a few more to my neighbors or I'd have an extra (and unwanted) 10lbs on my backside!! So the neighbor's son was happy to take them. All the neighbors were, actually. They kept really well and were softer than the usual Toll House. I gave one to The Mr. and the first thing he said is "They taste like those soft batch ones. Those are my favorite". For those who reviewed the recipe and didnt like it, just add the pudding straight out of the box. And if you didnt get soft cookies, you probably over baked them. I always reduce my oven by 25 no matter what, and bake the goods an extra minute or so. It makes everything softer and more moist. Cakes, cookies, muffins, everything! I wont need any other chocolate chips recipes after this one!!

Simple Beef Flavored Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
Personally, I didnt like this recipe (almost) as is. I dont do onions, so I used onion powder. And oddly enough, although it had tons of flavor, it seemed bland. So maybe next time I'll add some garlic or seasoned salt. Maybe add some kind of meat drippings too. I know it's strange to say that it has flavor but it's bland, but that's the only way I can think to describe it. SUPER easy to make, I personally just think it's missing something.

Wine Marinade

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
Apparently I dont like soy sauce. I've never used it before, and I think I let the pork sit too long in the marinade. But once I cooked it, ALL I could taste is the soy sauce. I think if maybe I used the teriyaki (which I KNOW I like) instead, it would be great. It really added a lot of flavor to the meat, "The Mr." noticed and commented on it, and liked it, but I just couldnt get past the soy sauce.

Oven-Fried Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
This is a super yummy and EASY way to make chops. I used to swear that I couldnt cook pork to save my life, but I followed the 10 min each side directions in the recipe and it was GREAT! All the ingredients I had on hand and it took just seconds to drop each chop in the egg ,then crumbs, and into the oven. In fact, usually I can get all the dishes in my dinner done at the same time, but these cooked SO fast that I had them ready before everything else! For sure using this recipe again!

Chocolate Velvet Ice Cream

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
GREAT recipe!! I've made this several times and have noticed that unless you scrape the bowl many times during the mixing process, the choclate doesnt mix all that well. And you HAVE to add the cream painfully slow as you mix, stop and scrape, mix and add cream, stop and scrape. It seems like it takes forever (because the ice cream is so good it's painful to wait for!), but its worth it because you wont have a glop of chocolate at the bottom of the bowl when you pour the mix in the ice cream maker. And when I process the chocolate chips, I leave them kinda chunky becuase its fun biting into the chocolate when you eat the ice cream! I'm pretty sure that this recipe would be AWESOME with extra stuff like oreos, toffee bits, mini marshmallows, maraschino cherries, etc!

Swiss Chicken Casserole II

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
WOW this is good! I've added it to my favorites file with a few revisions. I took the advice of a few other reviewers and added another can of soup. I've made this recipe several times and have mix up the varieties of soup used, and they've all been great. I also slathered on extra cheese because, I believe, the more the better! I also added a bit more milk because I wanted the sauce a little more "saucy" and a little less "casserole" (to pour over the noodles I served it with). I was amazed that the stuffing mix and the soup added enough flavor because I didnt add an extra seasoning ingredient and it was wonderful!!

Cincinnati Chili I

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
OK. I feel horrible giving it 3 stars, but I hated it (I would have given it 1), but the Mr. and my friend loved it. In fact, they ate most of it. I had a bit and it was manageable to eat, but I couldnt get over the smell/taste combo. It tasted ok. But while it was cooking, it smelled like the spicy oatmeal cookies I make. So it was weird thinking oatmeal cookies, but tasting chili...My weirdness aside, the entire batch was eaten in a few days. I've never had this chili, so I cant compare it to anything, but there's my two cents...

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
I made this recipe as is for a potluck at work. Most of the time the stuff I bring (recipes from this site) is a huge hit, but since I hadnt made this before, I didnt tell anyone that I broguht the cocktail meatballs. But when I looked around the room, and nobody had them on their plates, because they had eaten them all, I fessed up! Anyway, super easy recipe to make (prepared them the night before and refrigerated until the morning, turned on the crock pot, and finished just in time for lunch!) and even easier to eat! I had never used chili sauce before, but I picked up a few bottles, and have made dozens of the meatballs and froze them so I can whip up this recipe at a moment's notice!! I also used a small cookie scoop to ensure all the meatballs are the same size, and baked the meatballs as directed, but I used a 13x9 pan with an elevated rack to help them cook evenly. PERFECT!!

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
WOW! I made this turkey for my first complete Thanksgiving dinner and it is sooo good. In fact, I went and picked up a few more turkey because it was so good I knew I didnt want to wait another year to have it again. SO easy to make, and I made sure it was done not by the time it had baked, but the internal temperature. I think I ended up cooking it a bit longer than the directions said, but when I did take it out, it tasted perfect! SO moist and juicy. And to get a bit of crisp from the crust, I uncovered it and increased the temperature (also helped cook it faster!). I've collected a bunch of turkey recipes (didnt know which one to try), but dont need them anymore because this is #1!!!! Also from the butter, bouillon and chicken broth it made excellect drippings for gravy. I'm telling you, the BEST Thanksgiving I've EVER had!! Next year at my house everyone!!!!!

Bikini Martini

Great! The Mr. loved mine and wanted one of his own. I did double the pineapple juice and it was perfect! So yummy! I think next I'm gonna try orange juice to go along with the pineapple.

Lettuce with Hot Bacon Dressing

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
WOW. I've been back and forth on this. I thought it looked good when I found the recipe. Then I made it and got a little weirded out before I ate it. 3 bowls later, I suppose it's pretty good. I gave a sample bite to "The Mr." and he liked it too. It didnt taste like the vinegar like I was worried it was gonna. It coats the lettuce nicely and gives it a bacon flavor. I used shredded sharp cheddar cheese, diced the egg up really small and put it over a spring salad mix. Really good, made for a nice lite lunch!!

Parmesan Herb Bread

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
I gave this a 5-Star because it has 5-star potential. I followed the recipe as published, using my bread maker. First, I added some chopped garlic, about a clove, or maybe 2 tsp of the garlic in a jar. GREAT addition. However, my experience was that the 2 cups of water called for is WAY too much. I had to add an aditional 2-3 cups of flour. And because I added so much more flour, it diluted the parmesan and oregano taste (I should have realized that when I was adding the flour; duh). So next time to fix all of my problems, I'm gonna add 1 cup of water, and only more as needed. I'll add the garlic, and do the rest as directed. Oh and I put some parmesan cheese in some butter and smeared it all over the top once it came out of the oven. AWESOME! Other than all the trouble with the water, it was really wonderful and in fact, this bread was what we had for dinner. Just the bread!! I think I'm gonna make some more of this right now!!

Fruited Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
WOW! Great ice cream recipe. I've got cantaloupes growing all over the place, so I thought cantaloupe ice cream would be an interesting version of this recipe. I chopped the cantaloupe and added 1 cup of skim milk to the blender. It purred up nicely! Since I halved the recipe, I ended up using 5cups (with the 1 cup skim milk included) cantaloupe puree, another 1 cup skim milk, 2 cups heavy cream, 1 tbsp vanilla a pinch of salt and 1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk. Made sure it all all blended well and put the mix in my small ice cream maker. 20 mins later we had the most flavorful cantaloupe ice cream! I picked the fruit straight off the vine and within an hour had ice cream. Dang good ice cream, too. WOW.

GREAT dip!! I made it while on a "chips and dip" kick and have been making it ever since. Easy to do as the directions state. Give it a try!
