Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2002
This recipe was wonderful! I made these for a bridal shower and everyone loved them! No one believed me when I told them what the ingredients were because this recipe was so EASY!!! I used fresh dill instead of the dried and mixed 1 tbsp. in with the cream cheese mixture in addition to the dill I sprinkled on top. I got tons of requests for this recipe and the bride has requested it to put in her Newlywed recipe file. Thanks for such an awesome recipe, Dianne!

Wine Jelly

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
I made this recipe exactly as written and it turned out beautifully. I used some fairly inexpensive Zinfandel wine and the flavor was just lovely. I gave these as gifts with labels that told users to serve it over pork or cream cheese. Many of the recipients told me how much they enjoyed the jelly and I agree that it was tasty served over a pork tenderloin. Great, easy, inexpensive gift!

Slow Cooker Chicken Parisienne

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2002
This was outstanding! Both my husband and I just loved it! It was extremely easy to make and I even used frozen chicken breasts. I reduced the sour cream to a 1/4 cup because we are not big fans of sour cream but even the 1/4 cup gave it an incredibly rich flavor. I also used about 3/4 tsp. paprika which gave it a nice kick (we like spicy food). We will definitely be making this one again and I will be passing this recipe on! Thanks for a wonderful dish! 5 Stars!!

Bella's Rosemary Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2002
This was a great recipe! It tasted good, was easy to make and looked great! My husband doesn't like rosemary so I substituted fresh basil - they tasted wonderful! I also boiled them until just barely tender and then fried them on the stove. Much quicker and they tasted great! Try 'em! You'll love 'em!

Best Bruschetta Ever

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2002
I'm not a huge tomato fan but I do like bruschetta and this was good! We made this for a bridal shower and it was very well received. We doubled the recipe, added some extra garlic and let it sit for about 16 hours. The flavors melded nicely and tasted great served over toasted baguette slices. This was a big hit with our tomato lovers! I'll definitely be making this one again!

Southern Living Magazine's Chicken-Fried Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
I love this recipe! I didn't crush the crackers fine enough the first time and it made the coating too thick in places. On all subsequent uses, I've crushed the crackers to a fine dust using the pulse setting on my food processor and it makes a beautiful, tasty layer of crust. Prior to cooking, I liberally sprinkle both sides of the steak with salt, pepper and garlic POWDER, then let it sit for 15-20 min. It really gives the meat amazing flavor before dredging. You definitely don't need this much oil; 1 1/2 cups should be enough. You need enough to reach halfway up the side of the steaks, but not cover. The cooking instructions are a bit long for both sides; 1st side should cook no more than 6-7 minutes or until all but the very top looks dry (there should be "puddles" of meat juice in the center areas, but edges should appear golden brown and fried), and the 2nd side 3-4. Any more than that makes the steaks tough. We don't eat gravy so I can't attest to that part of the recipe so my rating is strictly for the steak itself. I can say that I grew up in Texas, and this equals some of the best CFS I ever had there, and far exceeds anything you can get at a chain like Appleby's or Chili's. It's even better than my mom's and hers was amazing!

Buitoni's Garden Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 21, 2003
I really enjoyed this salad. I tossed it together for a quick afternoon lunch with friends and it was well received. The different flavors complemented each other well and I loved that it was so quick and easy to put together.

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
This cake was pretty decent and went over like gangbusters at my Book Club meeting. I reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cups and added 1 tbsp. of orange extract resulting in a lovely, nice citrusy flavor to offset the blueberries. It was dense, moist and very sweet. I considered it to be more cake than coffee cake but that's not a bad thing by any means. Try it as you'll really like it!

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: May 27, 2003
Not that my voice needs to be added to the chorus of great reviews on this recipe, nevertheless, I just had to say that this is THE best bread machine recipe I have come across. The bread was light, flavorful and the crust was not the usual thick skin that my bread machine produces. In fact, the crust was wonderfully flaky and the bread made incredible grilled cheese sandwiches. I can guarantee that I will be using this recipe often! 5 Stars Karen! Thanks!

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2003
This was a fabulous recipe. I have always had problems with spanish rice even though I am a decent cook but this recipe was absolutely fool-proof! I did up the chili powder to almost 3 full tsp. and added 1 tsp. of cumin because I like the flavors but it was really quite good as is. I also used homemade chicken broth in place of the water and that turned out well. Thanks for a great recipe!

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2003
Positively fabulous recipe! This was so easy and resulted in 4 meals. I ate the roast the first night as is and mixed the rest into different dishes, i.e. barbecue pork for sandwiches, chile verde sauce for burritos and added chili powder and spices for quick tamales. Very highly recommended and WILL be made again in our house! Thanks for the great and easy recipe!

Classic Spanish Sangria

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2004
This was good even though it was quite potent. I made it for a 4th of July barbecue and all the guests loved it. I typically don't serve Sangria over ice but found it worked well with this recipe since the ice made it a little less strong. I also added some Sprite for those that were overwhelmed by the rum. I tried one batch with inexpensive wine and another with mid-price and the cheaper stuff was better. Very festive and the chopped apple I added was mmm, mmm good! Good recipe! I highly recommend it!

Sesame Beef

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2004
This was fabulous! Literally the only change I made was to throw in some dried minced onion instead of the green onion. I let it marinade overnight in a plastic bag and cooked it up the next day with some broccoli. It was wonderful and I liked it even better than the local restaurant's version because I know exactly what is in it. Hubby even enjoyed this and he's super picky! Thanks for a GREAT and easy recipe!

Microwave Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
This recipe was fabulous! I will admit that I was skeptical to say the least but it came together so quickly and easily. Be patient as you stir and don't be discouraged if it seems too watery because it thickens up quite nicely as it cools. It was a huge hit at my afternoon tea. I'm planning to put small jars of this in my Christmas basket so I will obviously be making this again!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2004
I am guilty of never having had a Cinnabon but if they taste as good as these then I am hooked! This is definitely a 5-star for taste and ease of preparation. The only change I made was to take the advice of some of the reviews and mix the brown sugar, cinnamon and butter together and brush it on. I also made my dough in my bread machine, rolled it out, shaped and cut my rolls and then let them rise overnight in the fridge for even more ease of prep. I took them out the next morning, let them sit on the counter for 30 minutes and then baked them according to the directions. They came out perfect and were nice and hot for me to take to work. The icing was incredible and my co-workers want me to open a bakery selling these and Grandma Johnson's scones. Great recipe!! Thanks Marsha!

Mock Champagne

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2006
This was fabulous! The first time, I made it as-is and the guests at the baby shower were guzzling it! I froze raspberries in my ginger ale ring and it looked gorgeous floating in the punch. I made it a second time a few weeks later for a birthday party for my co-worker's elderly parents. The second time, I used sparkling apple-grape juice and it didn't really affect the taste much but did make it bubblier. The elderly guests loved it so much that we had to put the punch into a pitcher and walk around refilling because we couldn't scoop it from the punch bowl fast enough! Great recipe!!

City Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2001
We loved this recipe! Both my husband and I were rather nonplussed by the smells coming from the combination of the chicken broth and the pork but it was absolutely delicious! The meat was extremely tender. I added some fresh ground garlic, some white pepper and some cumin and it tasted wonderful. It was even better the next day for lunch!

Fool-proof Scones

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
Oh my goodness! These were absolutely incredible! Moist, yet dense enough to hold their shape and crumble into bite size pieces. I added white chocolate chips, 2 tsp. of fresh squeezed OJ and the zest from a large orange. They came out with a slightly orange-y taste with a hint of yummy chocolate flavor from the white chocolate chips. I served them with the Easy Devonshire Cream recipe from this site. My co-workers said these were the best they have ever had and I agree! I WILL make again and 100% recommend trying it! UPDATE: I made these again and they were just as big a hit as the first time. This time, I divided the dough in half, added blueberries and some grated lemon rind to one half and chocolate chips to the other. I topped the lemon-blueberry ones with a lemon juice, confectioners' sugar glaze and the chocolate chip with raw sugar. Both were very popular but the chocolate chip ones virtually disappeared! You have to try this recipe because you can add anything and it will taste GREAT!! UPDATE 2: I'm still making these and they are still amazing! My favorite variation is 1/2 cup dried cranberries and 1/2 cup white chocolate chips. Mmm, mmm, good!!
