Brown Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2013
Great base recipe and nice flavor minus the Worcestershire sauce & soy sauce. The first time I cooked it I made it with all the ingredients and found it a tad spicy. I never had 2 hours or the patience to make rice so I'm rating this on the way I have made it; which is on the stove top. Directions: 1)Melt 2 Tbsps of butter over medium heat. Once melted, saute the rice until starting to brown 3-5 min; stirring frequently so that it won't burn. 2) Add the can of beef broth and can of french onion soup (omit Worcestershire, soy sauce and pepper), stir to combine, bring to a boil, lower heat to Low, cover and cook 20 min. Let stand for 10 min with lid on, fluff with a fork and serve.

Moist and Savory Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
Good basic recipe but here are some modifications that will jazz it up! 1) I bake it in the oven which means you cut the broth back to a cup. Saute 1 small onion, chopped and 2 celery stalks chopped in 1/4 cup melted butter. Add 1 tsp ground sage, stir everything together and bake for 30-40 min at 350. I haven't tried it yet but thinking of adding an egg as a binder. Very traditional and tastes like my moms!

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
This was a heavenly cake! I did follow the advice of other users and doubled the ginger and cinnamon, added 1/2 cup applesauce to make the cake extra moist, and checked it after 45 min to make sure it didn't burn. I won't ever use another recipe! This was the base for my Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle-gingerbread cake, pumpkin custard and fresh whipped cream! YUM! I love the fall!

Campbell's Kitchen Classic Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2011
Campbell's used to have a WONDERFUL older version involving milk, cream of mushroom, Worcestershire, and sour cream. Unfortunately I have lost my copy and have been searching for it on the internet ever since. This definitely needed some doctoring up. I always use ground beef in my stroganoff. And here are the modifications I made to this recipe which made it MUCH tastier! I used Regular Cream of Mushroom (more flavor), 1 Tbsp tomato paste, omit the sherry, 1/2 cup milk instead of water, 2 Tbsps Worcestershire and definitely always good sour cream 1/4-1/2 cup. I also add a small can of chopped mushrooms in at the end along with salt and pepper to taste. Yummy! Very close to the old recipe!

Cheddar-Thyme Flaky Biscuits

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
Really good biscuits. I had some fresh thyme that I needed to use and I found this recipe for Father's Day dinner. I did follow some of the advice from the other reviews. I didn't use cream of tartar and I used 3 Tbsps of thyme instead of 1. I also froze my butter for 15 min and then grated it on a box grater. It made it so much easier to incorporate.

Salsafied Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
Very good! I didn't have a large quantity of ingredients and my husband doesn't really care for Mexican style food so I halved the recipe. I didn't have any instant rice so I used 1/2 cup of uncooked white rice. I put that along with 1 cup of chicken broth and 1 cup of salsa and mixed it in an 8x8 baking dish. I already had some grilled chicken so I chopped it up and threw it in as well. I covered it in foil and baked it at 350 for 1 hour. Then I put 4 oz of cheddar on top, put the foil back on and heated for 5 minutes. This definitely wasn't the easy, quick way but man was it good! I'm thinking of adding black beans next time as well as doing another suggestion, cooking fresh chicken with taco seasoning. YUM, definitely a keeper!

Lemon Poppy Seed Chicken Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
This was a fabulous dish! I made it for my sister and a picnic her boyfriend was planning for her. I read the reviews and decided to add the juice of one fresh lemon to 2 1/2 cups of dressing. I reserved 1/2 cup for right before serving to moisten the salad. Harris Teeter also has precooked packages of grilled chicken that made this recipe even easier. I am thinking about trying to add lemon zest next time. I am always looking for different and unique pasta salad recipes. This one is definitely a keeper!

Fresh Lime Curd

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2010
This was absolutely delicious and so easy! I needed some lime curd to add some pizazz to a key lime cake that I had made. I slathered in between two key lime cake rounds and then topped the whole thing with a sugary lime glaze. I love key lime pie and this is the next best thing if you can't have pie!

Campbell's Kitchen Sweet and Sour Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2010
I actually really enjoyed this and so did my husband who loves sweet and sour chicken. I didn't have any white vinegar so I substituted apple cider vinegar. I was afraid it was going to be too sweet but the flavors were nice. My husband can't eat green peppers so I substituted yellow bell peppers. I also threw in half of small onion, sliced and some sliced carrots(I enjoy lots of veges). I agree with another review in that it wasn't very eye appealing. I was looking for a way to add some color in so I threw in a Tbsp of black sesame seeds. That did it! It also adds a nice crunch. Next time I think I will try a red bell pepper for more color. The contrast between the peppers and the sweet pineapple was very nice. Overall, a great dish but it barely feeds 4 people. If you want seconds or leftovers, double the recipe except the rice. Going to add it to my weekly recipes!

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
This should be a ten star dish. I messed up the first time and made it with 1 lb beef but didn't double the rest of the ingredients. It was ok but the second time I made it I added 2 cloves of garlic,minced and a 1/2 of an onion, finely minced (in addition to the garlic and onion powder). It was awesome!! My husband can't eat foods with a lot of sodium so this is perfect! We will never buy manwich again!!!

Onion-Topped Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
This was pretty good and very easy. It reminded me very much of Party Chicken that I have had minus the dried beef and bacon. I didn't have any potatoes but I put two cups of thawed frozen hashbrowns in the bottom of my casserole dish. I also didn't have any french fried onions so I sauteed half an onion and put it in the soup/sour cream mixture (which is what they do in the Party chicken recipe). I added a little milk to the soup mixture as well so that when it cooked it would seep down into the potatoes. About half way through it looked like it was starting to burn so I covered it with tin foil. It didn't look very appetizing (I guess the french fried onions hide that) and the chicken was kinda dry. I only baked it for 1 hour and 1/4. Will try a little less time next time and add in some bacon.

Apple-Cranberry Crisp

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
I read the reviews first and added more cranberries. I enjoyed it very much. If you want a tart crisp this is definitely that. If you want a sweeter crisp I would recommend using a sweeter apple and use the recipe's amount of cranberries. I served it with vanilla ice cream and the combination of tart and sweetness was really nice.

Butterfly Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
I made this for my daughter's 1st birthday party. Her theme was butterflies and it looked great! Carve out some time to make and decorate it. It took me a while to decorate it. Put your first layer of frosting on and then chill the cake for 15-20 min. This stabilizes the first layer so you don't get any crumbs in your second layer of frosting (I made it with chocolate cake instead of vanilla).

Onion Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
Great bread! So tasty but only when it's hot and fresh. The next day it's kind of dry and stale tasting.

Vegetable Fried Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
I didn't follow the recipe exactly but I loved the results. I omited the red pepper flakes, the peanuts. I used all sesame oil instead of peanut oil. I didn't have any green peppers and I used frozen peas and carrots, thawed. I also used white rice instead of brown; it's all I had. I substituted teriyaki sauce for the soy sauce; don't care for soy sauce at all. I read the reviews and tried sauteing my rice before hand but the results were mushy. I think I will try another suggestion of cooking the rice a day ahead of time and letting it sit in the frig. Regardless, the taste was great! Definitely the best fried rice I've ever made. This recipe is a keeper!

Cheesy Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
My sister made these for my baby shower and they were awesome! I have also made them after reading the reviews. I followed the recipe but also added 2 tsps of garlic powder. When my sister made them she added 1/2-1 lb of raw sausage into the mixture. They are fantastic with the sausage. Yes, they are on the heavier side and if you are looking for a light biscuit this recipe is not for you but it is worth trying. My husband polished off all of them in one sitting. PS- This made 32 small drop biscuits.

Cheese Dip II

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
I have been making this for years and I love it! I use mild salsa instead of picante sauce and just before serving I put in sliced green onions. It's a hit everytime!
