Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
SUPER quick and easy, and VERY tasty! I used Smart Balance margarine with these (softened) and they turned out great. The didn't spread as much as I thought they would, but besides that they were perfect. Make sure to take them out just at the point where they don't look quite done enough. They will remain soft as a result. I used the recipe " Sugar Cookie Icing" found on this site for my icing. They were great together! Make sure to wait until your cookies have cooled and chill your icing in the fridge for a bit - otherwise it will run down your the side of your cookies. Thanks for a great family recipe!

Turkey Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
Wow! I can't believe how good this was, and I'm not a fan of the cheap store bought pot pies. A fantastic way to use left-over holiday turkey. My changes were: I added a touch of rosemary (my turkey was already flavored with that) and I only used one large skillet - not two like step #3 suggests - since my turkey was precooked. I didn't add any extra liquid, as some users suggested. I felt like there was just the right amount of creamy filling. I didn't have any pre-made pie crusts, so I used the SUPER easy " No Fail Pie Crust III" on this site (halved to make only 2 crusts - and put them in the fridge until my filling was ready) and it turned out perfect! Thank you for a wonderful recipe. Update: Made this again last night using two boneless, skinless chicken breasts I had on hand. Didn't use potatoes this time around and therefore only used one bullion cube and one cup of water, since I assumed not as much water would be absorbed with the lack of potatoes. Also added a cup of sliced fresh mushrooms and two frozen crusts this time. Just goes to show you how great and versatile this recipe really is!

Alienated Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
I'm not sure if it was something I did or not, but these didn't turn out as good as I had hoped. They didn't puff up nicely as I had hoped, and instead seemed a little "airy" on the inside. Also, I followed the directions about coating the blueberries well and most of them still sank. Overall, these were just ok flavor wise. The good thing is that they were one of the healthiest I could find on allrecipes at the time.

Vegetable Beef Soup II

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
A definite keeper! Here are the changes I made: I browned 1 lb. of ground turkey with approx. 1 cup of chopped onions and 1 tbsp of minced garlic and some powered beef flavoring for the meat, but this is very optional (essentially it's beef bullion in power form); 4 beef bullion cubes, 5 cups of water (which is equal to 4 cups of beef broth and 1 cup of water); added 1/4 cup red wine; used a little extra of all spices called for, inc. 2 bay leaves, as we like our soup extra flavorful. This turned out soooo great - we'll make it again and again for sure. Thank you!

Garlicky Baked Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2008
I really wanted to like this recipe, but it just didn't turn out good at all. While it didn't look dry, it tasted very dry and the flavor just wasn't to our liking. I might try again, but will try to cook it for less time (maybe cooking until soft takes too much out of the veggie?).

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
Wow! Very, very good. Super easy to make if you blanch the peaches to remove the skins. Mine ended up having a bit too much saucy goo that covered the topping, which prevented the "dough" from cooking completely. To remedy, I simply put on low broil for about 4 minutes and - tada! Will make many times over.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
This is one dish I'll add to my favorite cold weather recipe list. It's so quick and easy and tastes great! Here are the modifications I make: 1 can of plain biscuits (not 2) and I add about a can of chicken broth and sometimes a bit of milk. Without this extra liquid I think it's a bit dry for my liking. I also add fresh cracked black pepper and some onion power (I don't typically add as much raw onion, so this still keeps the flavor). I've cooked this both in the crock pot and on the stove top and it comes out great either way. Just be sure to cook down your chicken long enough so it begins to fall apart in the liquid... it's just better that way in my opinion! Thank you for a keeper :)

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
Oh yeah - these are definitely easy and super good! As mentioned in other reviews, take these out before you think you should. If they actually appear brown on the edges, you've already cooked them too long. They're still edible, but not near as chewy and good. Thanks for a great recipe!

Skillet Chicken Cordon Bleu

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2007
Excellent, quick recipe. I also use sliced swiss cheese and white wine vinegar if I don't have white wine. As a ham "cubed" alternative, I use shaved ham. Great flavor!!

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2007
I substituted half of the oil for applesauce to lower the fat. I also added 1 tsp. vanilla, 1 tsp. of cinnamon, & 2 pinches of allspice. A cream cheese based icing is great for an a sweeter treat alternative.

Golden Rum Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2006
This turned out very moist! The nuts are a great compliment to the rum flavor. I wasn't sure about using the entire glaze topping (looked like it might be too much), but I did and it was perfect. I think this is actually better the next day, as the rum flavors seem to set better with the rest of the ingredients. Is great to serve with vanilla ice cream!!

Crazy Crust Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2006
For a thin, no yeast recipe, this is the best! I also only used one egg (to cut down on the "eggy" flavor) and it turned out great!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2006
Great recipe, with a few additions. I agree - the liquid/sauce isn't thick enough for my liking. Also, the butter used makes it a bit too salty, and the marsala sauce I prefer should have a bit of a sweet taste, and this lacks that touch. In order to thicken the sauce and bring the taste to my liking, I made the following additions: After the wine and mushrooms have been added in the skillet, mix 1/4 Cup low-fat buttermilk, 3/4 Cup water, 1 TBSP sugar, 1 TBSP cornstarch and 3 TBSP of marsala wine together. Pour into skillet and bring to a boil with lid off. Once rapidly boiling, add 1/8 TSP pepper and 1/8 salt to skillet. At this time cover, reduce heat, and simmer for about 5 minutes. This is great served over spaghetti or alongside buttered spaghetti noodles, topped with romano cheese.
