Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2008
I made this with boneless, skinless thighs and they were nice and tender. This is an easy and good recipe, but for my taste was too heavy on the herbs. I also used parmesan from the bag (the type that is more shredded than grated). The powder version in a shaker would have incorporated better, but I don't like the taste of it. If you want to use Parmesan, the best idea would be to get a block and grate (not shred) your own.

Kathy's Roast and Vegetables

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2008
Wow! This was amazing! I don't have a slow cooker, but I made this according to the recipe and put it in a very large covered skillet and then into the oven at 250 degrees for about 7 hours. The meat cut like butter and everyone absolutely gobbled it up! The gravy is wonderful!

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2008
FANTASTIC!! For those that want to use up 3 cans of sweetened condensed milk: I purchased the larger Keebler graham cracker crust (the one that says it has 2 extra servings). Adjust this recipe for 10 servings instead of 8 and you will use up all the milk. My pie was perfectly set and delicious!

Supreme Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2008
Very good, but I found the directions to boil and then shred the potatoes confusing. It seems to me that potatoes won't shred if they are boiled until tender and I've never heard of scalloped potatoes made with shredded potatoes. Like most, I sliced them thin and didn't boil them. I did mix all the ingredients together (using 4.5 lbs of Yukon Gold potatoes), though I used a total of 2 cups of cheddar - most in the mix and the rest on top. I baked this for 40 min covered and 20 minutes uncovered. I would also caution that the recipe makes a huge portion. My family of 4 ate 1/4 of it. I would think that for most families, halving the recipe would make more sense. I did try freezing 1/2 of it as others recommended, but I don't recommend doing that - the potatoes were rubbery and just didn't taste as good.

Peach-a-Berry Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2008
Delicious! I loved the flavor the raspberries added. (However, my husband does not like the seeds that berries add to pie and this mix of flavors was not enough to get him past this. So if you have someone like this in your life, use this as a very good peach pie recipe and replace the raspberries with extra peaches.)

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
Very nice chicken recipe - it really does taste like rotisserie chicken. I used black pepper in place of the white and the skin came out a bit too spicy, so do try to use the white pepper. The one drawback is that compared to my baked chicken, the skin was crispy in some places but a bit tough in others. The chicken itself was well cooked and flavorful. I followed another reviewer's advice and made gravy from the pan drippings, which was excellent. I used an 8x8 baking dish to cook the chicken and this kept more of the liquids in the pan for gravy.

Beef Barley Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2008
In my opinion, there was too much wine in this recipe. It just didn't have the right flavor - I ate half a bowl and my son and husband took just 2 bites - with encouragement. I have used red wine in other soups, but this was overpowering. I would cut the wine in at least half, but since I have a better recipe for beef barley soup, I'm not planning on making this again.

Japanese Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2008
Thanks for the great recipe - very tasty wings! I gave this 5 stars for taste, but want to add a few notes about cooking: I don't see how it's possible for one egg coat 3 lbs of wings - count on using 2 or 3 depending on how heavily you coat the wings. Also, I have a very large skillet, but I still needed to brown these in 3 rounds. Plan on a little extra time for this.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2008
I used 1/4lb of fresh spinach and 1/4lb of fresh mushrooms (that's what I had)and put all the cheddar in at once. For my store bought crusts, this was too much spinach filling for one quiche so I made two. (Though I added 2 eggs and 1/2 cup milk to make enough of the egg mixture.) Came out beautiful and tasted fantastic - thank you for the recipe! (Note: it was very buttery, which is delicious but not so healthy. I suspect I could have used a less - maybe even half - and still had nice quiches.)
