Easy Chicken Balls

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2001
I left out the ricotta (forgot to buy) and the cloves. I did notice that the 2 eggs seemed to make the mixture very "wet" so I added some bread crumbs to make it easier to handle. I also didn't have crackers on hand so I crushed some corn flakes. I'm not a fan of hot oil but it was easy to make and my husband and I both loved them. I made a honey mustard dipping sauce for them as well. I would probably make this again but might try baking them instead of frying.

Crab Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2002
This was really good both warm and cold. I used shallots instead of onions and I didn't use any mayo in it. I served this with sourdough bread.

Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2002
Overall it tasted fine but I think I was expecting it to be a bit thicker. I might play with the recipe a bit to see if I can get a thicker version.

Apricot Chicken II

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2001
My husband I thought this was very good. I used skinless, boneless chicken breasts and they turned out very moist. The only problem I had with the recipe was that the sauce was kind of thin so I would like to come up with a way to thicken it some. I served it with rice and used some of the sauce to flavor the rice. Will make again, possibly as a stir-fry.

Mushroom Stuffed Chicken Rollups

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2002
I don't see how these could be made without first pounding the chicken flat. I pound mine flat which made it easier to roll. I also put my mushrooms in the food processor and chopped them really fine. I rolled the chicken and secured with toothpicks and cooking twine. I left out the nutmeg and the cream. I spread a can of cream of mushroom soup in the baking dish before adding the chicken rolls. I served with wild rice.

Chocolate Date Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
Be careful not to overbake as it will come out a bit dry. I overfilled my tin and it took quite a while to bake and the edges came out dry which made it hard to slice nicely. My husband loves date loaf and chocolate so I thought I'd combine the two for him. He liked it but said the chocolate overpowered the dates and he couldn't taste them which he thought was a waste of dates. Would I bake this again? Yes, probably. Also, this cake is much better the next day.

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2002
I decreased the recipe down to 10 servings. I further decreased the amount of oregano and basil because I'm not a big fan of those. I used about 1/2 tsp. each instead of the 1 1/4 tsp suggested by the decreased recipe. I thought it was quite good and even though the recipe said to serve at room temp, I put it in the refrig for a bit. My husband thought it was tart but he has a sweet tooth. I thought it was just right. Will make again for sure.

Simply Elegant Steak and Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2001
This was really good. I didn't let mine simmer for an hour though or all the sauce would have dried up. About 30 mins was plenty for it. I served it with rice. Hubby loved it so it's a keeper.

Honey White Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2001
The first time I made this I didn't have the vitamin C or the ginger so I added a tiny bit of ground cloves. It smelled really nice and had a good flavor. The 2nd time I made it, I left out the cloves and just added a bit more honey. I liked it better without the cloves. It made a small loaf for my bread machine so I would need to adapt it to make about a 2lb loaf.

End of the Line Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2001
My husband gives it 5 stars, I give it 3 so I compromised on 4. I sliced my onion and potatoes very thin and it still took forever to cook. My hubby said it was even better as leftovers. I would make again though just for him.

Beef Burgundy Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2001
I don't know if I did something wrong or what but my meat came out very dry and I didn't even cook it for th full time. I think I'd probably get better results by doing this in the slowcooker.

Crab and Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2002
I halved the recipe and used a little less lemon juice. I thought it was very good and we used it with crackers and sourdough bread. I thought it needed just a little something extra so next time I'll experiment with either some garlic salt or a hotter hot sauce.

Queso Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2002
Mine came out sort of lumpy. It wasn't smooth like I expected of a queso. I used sharp cheese and homemade salsa (added 2 extra tablespoons). I also added some hot sauce to give it a bit more zip. I might try it again but I would need to play with it to make it a bit smoother in texture.

No Fuss Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2001
I only used about 1/2c. of mayo and that was plenty. I liked it but my husband thought the mayo made it a bit too rich although he still enjoyed it. My husband thought adding mushrooms would be nice so I will do that next time I make it. Overall, it was quick and easy and inexpensive to make so it's a keeper.

Peppermint Brittle

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
I had so much fun with this recipe. I did a couple of different varieties and everyone loved them! I think this would be really festive if the white chocolate had red and/or green food colouring added. The candy canes that I find in the UK aren't as strong tasting as the ones I could get in the US. I think I would add a tiny bit of peppermint flavouring just to pump up the flavour some.

Toffee Crunch Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2002
I used crushed toffee candy instead of the bits. They turned out pretty good but next time I make them, I'll use the toffee bits and see if that makes a difference in how they taste.

Ann's Shrimp Etouffee

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2002
A little time consuming but well worth the effort since my husband loved it. He took leftovers to work and everyone was commenting on how good it smelled. Will make again.

Chicken Fried Steak I

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2002
My husband is from England and I wanted to make him something that was traditionally southern. This does take some time and since you're using hot oil, you can't leave it unattended. I usually make the worse gravy but this time it turned out really nice and he loved the chicken fried steaks. Since this uses a fair bit of oil to cook it, I probably won't make this very often but it was really good. Great when you need a "comfort" food.

Mushroom Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2001
I think I must have done something wrong. My stuffing came out very dry. Even before putting it in the oven I had to add extra broth to get it to a moist state. The taste was good but it was dry. I would probably make this again just to see if it came out any different.

Shrimp and Crab Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2002
I also used the imitation crab meat and fresh shrimp. When my husband first heard what was for dinner, he turned his nose up but once he tried them he loved them. In fact, he stole some off of my plate. Would make again.
