Never Fail Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
Perfect! I wanted to make my husband a special breakfast for a major catch at work and knew that one of his favorites is biscuits and gravy. I'd never made biscuits from scratch before and thought I'd give this recipe a try. I followed directions to a T except I followed Barbara's tip by rolling it thinner (I made it 3/8 inch thick) folded it over then cut it. Pulled apart in a perfect center and they were light, fluffy, and great. My husband ate his with sausage gravy and I had mine with butter. We were both torn as to which was the best way to eat them.

Crispy Rosemary Chicken and Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2011
This recipe is wonderful! I prepared mine slightly differently than the directions in that I mixed everything in a big mixing bowl first (and made sure to rub the spices under the chicken skin as other reviewers suggested) then poured it onto a cookie sheet and cooked as directed. My husband and I loved it so much we prepared a large batch with just the chicken and put into several vacuum sealed bags to keep in the freezer for even faster/easier use as the thighs were on sale when we made it. We also brought some to a friends house the other night and cooked the chicken on the grill and everyone raved about it. Awesome and versatile recipe!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
A great pancake recipe. Certainly one of the fluffiest recipes I've tried (and my family likes fluffy pancakes) though we thought they needed just a little more sweetness to them. I think next time we'll add just a little vanilla as someone else suggested.

Cake Mix Cookies IV

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
Absolutely delicious! If you like Subway's cookies at all then you'll like theses. It was very easy and quick. I used chocolate cake mix with M&Ms and they had a great flavor. They were soft and moist but not so soft that they fell apart when cooked the proper amount of time. My first set (I can only cook one pan at a time) were falling apart a bit but when I cooked the next pan for 10 minutes they were solid enough to not fall apart, with a little bit of crunch on the outside and soft but done on the inside. I did press them down a little bit but not a whole lot. As far as adding needing extra ingredients goes-only if you're playing with making different variations/combinations. I gave this five stars because I didn't think it needed tweeking in order to taste great. I can't wait to try different combinations. Thanks!

The Way to a Man's Heart

This was beautiful and delicious! Rich and creamy with just the right blend of tastes and texture. I would recommend following up with something light and clear.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
This was a very good stew. It was my first time making stew but my husband, who love stew and grew up on that kind of thing, thought it was great. I've never been a big stew fan but I really liked it. I gave it four stars because my final product, after taste testing the original which my husband still really liked, I added the brown gravy packet for extra thickness and flavor. Next time I might try a little wine for another layer of flavor like another reviewer suggested. Other posters suggested browning the meat first and sauteing the onions etc. but it's not necessary. By itself it is a great base and very easy and good in and of itself.

Clam Chowder II

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
This was a good, easy base. However, we found it had too much of a clammy taste for our little family so we added another can of cream of potato soup (we made a batch sized for two) and we added a little dill, paprika, and pepper. After our changes we loved it. I think next time I'll drain the minced clams first but overall a good, easy base for those who aren't very good as making a roux or don't know how but want a good clam chowder.

Slow-Cooker Posole

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
This was a good recipe and my husband and his grandparents loved it. I'm giving it a four star rating instead of five because I didn't like how the enchilada sauce tended to separate from the water once it starts to cool and I didn't use the green chiles. However, I'm used to posole made from scratch so I'm biased. As a throw together recipe it was good though.

Garlic Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
This was the best fried chicken I've ever made. Coming from a family big on their Southern heritage, my husband has always been big on homemade fried chicken. I'm generally good at making most West and Southwest food but every time I've tired making fried chicken for my husband it has always been very bland and floury tasting. This time I had to keep him from eating all the rest of the chicken. Now I realize I just wasn't using nearly enough spices. I followed this recipe almost exactly (I used a little less milk and flour) and this was the first time I really liked what I'd made. This was awesome! Thanks.

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
This was an awesome recipe. I was so upset at first since I hadn't printed it up and lost my power and internet the night before Thanksgiving however I found out that the recipe comes with the Eagle's brand sweetened condensed milk so our day was saved. I did change it by adding some Tastefully Simple Mulling Spice along with the ginger and cinnamon, as well as heating up the spices and pumpkin together first as another poster suggested to blend the flavors and get rid of the canned taste. My husband thought it was great and he is a big pumpkin pie man. I've never been too fond of pumpkin pie but made it since he loves pumpkin pie. After this pie I am a big fan too!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
This was a wonderful recipe! It tastes great cooked on the stove top too. My broiler stopped working so I had to cook it on the stove. I just put a little butter and spices in the pan then cooked the fish on each side for s few minutes then added the cheese mixture and put a lid on it. It wasn't crunchy but my husband still ate it up and he comes from a family that hates fish...lol. I also ran out of onion powder so used garlic powder instead and it was still great. Added: I broiled it this time, with the extra butter and spices, and it was awesome!
