Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
This was my first time ever making corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick's Day, and this recipe was SO good! I cooked it in my crock pot on low for 7 hours, adding the potatoes for the last 2-1/2 hours, and the cabbage for the last hour. Next time I think I'll steam the cabbage separately, because it soaked up too much of the Guinness and my kids didn't like it so much. Otherwise, this meal turned out perfect! I made corned beef hash with the leftover meat and potatoes today for lunch.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
This applesauce is really good! I used two Red Delicious apples and two Granny Smith apples and followed the recipe exactly, except I had to let them cook a bit longer because the Granny Smith apples weren't soft enough at 20 minutes.

Oven Brown Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
I really liked this rice! I used brown jasmine rice that I was lucky enough to find at the 99 cent store. Because several reviewers said it was too salty, I substituted 1 cup chicken broth and about 3/4 cup of water instead of all chicken broth and used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. The result was perfectly cooked, flavorful rice that my children and I really enjoyed. I'll definitely make this again and again!

Broccoli with Poppy Seed Butter and Parmesan Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
This broccoli was very good with a few modifications. Because a few people mentioned it was kind of bland, I added extra paprika, salt, pepper, and Parmesan cheese. Also, I tossed the broccoli with the rest of the ingredients and then roasted it in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes. Even my kids liked it!!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS! This has got to be THE BEST soup I've had in a long time. I didn't have any beer, so I substituted a 14 ounce can of chicken broth instead. Then I discovered I was out of taco seasoning mix, so I searched for a recipe here and found Taco Seasoning I, with 1000 reviews and a 5-star rating that it very much deserves. Thank you for a great recipe, Patti!!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
Excellent taco seasoning mix! I was in the middle of making Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup from this site and realized I was out of taco seasoning mix...and didn't have time to run to the store. Fortunately, I had all the necessary ingredients to whip up a batch of this. I whirled it in my Magic Bullet to break up the oregano a bit. I'll never buy pre-packaged taco seasoning mix again!!

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
DELICIOUS! I made a few changes, but I'm sure these would be great as-is, too. I substituted 1 cup of whole wheat bread flour and 1/4 cup of ground flax meal for part of the flour. Because I was using part whole wheat flour, I also added some vital wheat gluten to make sure the dough would rise properly and the bread would be soft. I also kneaded in some garlic powder (about 1-1/2 Tbs). It didn't really give it a very strong garlic flavor, though, so next time I'll try adding roasted garlic cloves instead. I made five individual-sized baguettes instead of two larger ones. Even my father, who usually will ONLY eat white bread, loved these made more healthy.

Quick Italian Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
I made this for our church's mid-week Lenten soup and bread supper on Wednesday evening. It was very good! DEFINITELY use the Parmesan cheese. It makes this soup GREAT (I tasted it without the cheese and decided to add it. I'm glad I did!) I also increased the Italian seasoning to about 1 Tbs and used a little extra boullion crystals ( I didn't have cubes on hand) instead of adding salt. The recipe made a 5-quart pot of soup and I came home with only about 1-1/2 cups left-over. I pureed the leftovers and liked it even better that way! It would probably be good pureed, then mix in some cooked macaroni. Thanks for a great, simple, HEALTHY recipe!

Five Minute Ice Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
WOW! This was SO good! I didn't have any heavy cream on hand, so I used half and half and it still came out nice and creamy. I put it in the freezer for about 45 minutes after blending, but then couldn't stand waiting any longer, so I went ahead and ate it custard style instead of hard-frozen. It was a little sweeter than I prefer, so next time I'll probably reduce the sugar a bit. Otherwise, YUM! I can't wait to try it with other kinds of frozen fruit!

Easy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
I have never made hummus before, but I love the storebought stuff. This was very good. I added about 1/4 tsp of salt for flavor and a couple Tbs of olive oil, because my Magic Bullet was having a little bit of difficulty with the thickness. It was delicious right after mixing up and I can't wait to try it tomorrow after letting it sit in the fridge to mingle the flavors. Thank you for an easy, yummy recipe!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
OMGoodness! I can't believe I've never had rice pudding before! This stuff is AMAZING!!! I've just found a new favorite dessert :-) I added a touch of cinnamon at the end (about 1/2 teaspoon). DELICIOUS!

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
I hate to be the party pooper, but I really wasn't very pleased with this crust. The taste was okay, but even though I rolled it out very thin, it still puffed up way too thick for our liking.

Papa Drexler's Bavarian Pretzels

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
These pretzels are delicious! I had to add quite a bit extra flour because the dough was very sticky, but otherwise they turned out perfect. I used bread flour, but next time I'm going to try them with all purpose flour so we can see which way we like best.

Valentine Night Strawberries

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
Yay! I get to be the first to review this recipe. These are SO good! I didn't have any walnuts, but I contacted the submitter through the Recipe Exchange and she said any kind of nut will work. I chopped up some sliced almonds to put in the cream cheese mixture and garnished each strawberry with a whole slice of almond. YUM! I'll definitely make these again soon!

Strawberry Vanilla Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
My kids wanted breakfast for dinner and I had some strawberries that needed to get used up, so this was perfect! Per several reviewers' suggestions, I reduced the salt by half, which seemed to be perfect. I also added mini semi-sweet chocolate chips and topped the pancakes with whipped topping. I'll definitely make these again. Thanks for a great recipe!

Colored Sugar

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
Wow! I can't believe I didn't review this recipe when I used it back around Christmastime! This sugar worked really well as a decoration for Christmas cookies as well as a coating for truffles. After coloring the sugar, I spread it out in a baking dish and put it in a 250 degree F oven, stirring every 5 minutes until it was no longer moist. Make sure you put plenty of color in, because the color does dull a bit as it dries.

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
Delicious! I followed the advice of a couple other reviewers and sprinkled the raw shrimp with Old Bay before putting them in the baking dish and added a splash of white wine to the butter mixture. I used the full amount of butter, because I was serving this over spaghetti noodles and wanted to be sure to have enough to coat the noodles. I'll definitely make this one again!

Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
Very good sauce! I tweaked it a bit, using chicken broth instead of water, tomato paste instead of sauce, and taco sauce instead of salsa (I didn't have any salsa on hand). I also increased the cumin and chili powder to give it more of a kick and I added 1 square of unsweetened baking chocolate to deepen the flavor. Next time I think I'll omit the basil, too. I mixed some of the sauce with my shredded chicken (leftover meat from Roast Sticky Chicken on this site) before rolling in tortillas with shredded cheese. Topped with the rest of the sauce and lots more cheese, then baked at 375 for about 20 minutes. YUM! ** Update - I shared some of the leftover enchiladas with my parents and my father just texted me that they are "Out of this world" and "Must have the recipe"!! WOO HOO!!!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
WOW! That's about all I can say. This chicken is incredible! I was in such a hurry to try this that I even forgot to take a picture! I cut the recipe in half because I only had one bird thawed, but now I'm wishing I had made two so we could have leftovers. I mixed the pan drippings with a little chicken broth and a packet of country gravy mix (not the kind with sausage) and it made the BEST gravy. I served this with mashed potatoes and green peas.

Sourdough Starter

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
I have tried multiple sourdough starters and this is the first one that actually worked for me! I started it on Monday and yesterday (Thursday) I mixed up my first loaf of bread. I let it rise overnight, then baked it this morning for our breakfast. It was SO good! I can't wait until the starter develops a little more so it has even more of that delicious tangy flavor!
