Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2002
I used brown sugar instead of white (cut it in half for my taste) and added nuts to the potatoes as well as the topping. Went over great at a big luncheon and a family gathering. Thanks!

Simple Chicken Brine

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
Really good brine. Made my grilled chicken really moist and juicy without being overwhelming. NOTE: You cannot use table salt or it will be too salty. Thank you!

Tamale Pie II

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2003
I really like this recipe with these changes: use a 10x13 pan. Increase corn meal to 1-1/2 cups. I also like to add a few TBS of butter to the mix, but not necessary. Add 1 cup of black olives to meat mixture and put cheddar cheese into the meat mixture. Let meat simmer for 15 minutes before putting it into pan. (I also add a bit more tomato sauce because of the simmer time) We also like it spicier so I increase the chili pepper to taste. Also add 2 tsp sugar or splenda. Put meat mixture into empty pan and top with the corn meal mixture. Bake as directed.

Potato, Broccoli and Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2007
Wow, this is really good, and easy for a soup. I made it twice recently, because it went over so well. Both times I had to use frozen broccoli. The first time I followed the recipe as written. Yum! The second time I added garlic with the onion, I added fresh carrots with the broccoli, and I added about 1/2 cup of sour cream just to see how it would taste. Both ways are really good, so if you are creative, create away; either way you're going to have a great soup.

Basil Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2002
This was very good. I agree that the sauce should be doubled. I also increased the parmesan cheese to 1/3 cup (we really like it). Fresh mushrooms would be a great addition. Thanks for the recipe!

Laura's Unbelievable Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2005
I used leftover chicken breasts and fresh spinach. I also skipped the tomatoes. This was really good; my only complaint is that my husband ate so much I didn't get to save any leftovers!:) I bet it would be good with fresh mushrooms.

Our Favorite Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2007
I made the cake part only, not the frosting. I had to add another ounce of chocolate because it wasn't chocolate-y enough for us. I made cupcakes, baked for about 15 minutes, then watched them closely til done (around 18 minutes). Moist, with a nice taste and texture. I'm pleased with this recipe.

Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2002
I also added corn, soaked the tortillas in the sauce and used ground beef. This was great, and I've made it several times. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Creamy Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2007
Easy and good mid-week dinner. I hate making changes before reviewing a recipe, but I had to use fresh chicken breast. I diced the breast and browned it, then I added the broccoli and followed the recipe from there. I don't think there is a need to use two skillets, one worked fine for me. I also chopped the broccoli in the food processor, and I used more than called for. I didn't add the chili pepper, but I did use the sour cream. My picky 5-year-old ate it and my husband finished the leftovers the next day. I suggest adding fresh garlic. Next time I'm going to add celery and garlic with the chicken, and add carrots with the broccoli.

Champagne Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2002
I made this for our anniversary dinner. Used the dry champagne, and it was great. I will definitely be making this again. I did double the sauce ingredients because we prefer more sauce. Excellent! Thanks, Barbara!

Tea Cakes

My husband, the cookie master, really liked these cookies. He even makes them himself now. (If you knew my husband, you would know how good these must be!).

Sea Salted Coffee Toffee Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2008
After intending to follow the recipe exactly, I had to make some changes. First, after seeing the other cook's review, I tried making the bars in a jelly roll pan instead of a cake pan. I baked the crust for about six minutes, and the whole thing for about seven minutes. The topping gets big bubbles on top, which is the way its supposed to cook. They turned out flat, but the top was chewy and and bottom flaky. Be sure to use *real butter* or they won't turn out right. I didn't use coffee as they are for my husband, who doesn't like coffee. I also forgot vanilla and didn't put the nuts on til after the bars cooked. Be sure to use sea salt as it doesn't dissolve on the hot bars. I will definitely make them again and try the cake pan just to see if that makes a difference. Oh, and the crust is not supposed to be done after the first baking. It finishes baking with the topping, which also helps the topping absorb somewhat and become chewy.

Chicken Florentine Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2004
This is a really simple, good recipe that can be altered to taste, which is something I really like. I didn't have enough spinach the first time, so I used half spinach and half broccoli. I also used more parmesan cheese. This time I'm going to use all spinach and add a bit of nutmeg and some mushrooms. By the way, cube the chicken first then cook it... I think it's easier.

Simple Peanut Squash

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2004
This is a really easy, tasty recipe. The only change I will make next time is to cook it a bit longer. I prefer the squash a little softer. Otherwise, excellent recipe. My husband, not a big squash fan, LOVED it!!! (Always good with a veggie recipe!)

Lindsay® Olive Tea Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
Made these exactly as written, and they were great. Disappeared first, and I only got one. I'm making more as soon as my house is clean! ADDED 1/1/08 I have made these several times and they are always a popular item. What I do now to save time and effort is mix the cream cheese in with everything else and just spread it all together. Saves a step and is just as good.

Brined and Roasted Chicken Pieces

Reviewed: May 28, 2006
Basic brine. I put garlic in with the salt/sugar mix. Used boneless chicken breasts and grilled them. Easy and tasty, doesn't make the chicken salty at all.
