Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
I made this for a neighbor and for convenience used cream soup instead of making the roux and added about a half cup of sour cream at the end. I had a taste and gave my Mom a tiny bowl, and she declared it the best chicken soup ever--now I need to make it for us!

Pumpkin Honey Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
Very rich & yummy. I used Pumpkin Honey from Flying Bee Ranch and subbed eggnog for the liquid, so the flavor was a little different than the traditional pumpkin pie. Also the texture was a tad more substantial than usual. We really enjoyed it.

Chicken or Turkey Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
We really liked this dish. I used leftover turkey & followed the suggestions of previous reviewers & added ham, sour cream, & parmesan. I only had one can of mushroom soup, so I made a white sauce with cream cheese. I had to put this in a 12X18 pan because it made tons. After we stuffed ourselves, I froze 2 dinner-sized portions. It's a good recipe because you can do so much with it, plus it tasted great!

Apple Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
I left out the walnuts & raisins, and this was a good apple pie, just not the best I've had. The crumble didn't crisp up much for me, and (believe or not!) I thought it was a little too sweet. I still managed to eat 2 pieces--all in the name of research, of course.

Golden Pumpkin Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2007
I love the spices in these rolls--they are perfect with the pumpkin but not overpowering. I subbed cardamom for the cloves and threw in a dash of cinnamon. I didn't read the recipe right and only used one package of yeast, so the rolls were a little dense. I will make another batch tomorrow (using the correct amount of yeast!) & freeze them for our Thanksgiving dinner.

Tater Tot Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2007
This was good, comforting, man-food--my husband loved it. I thought it was surprisingly tasty. I added half a red bell pepper and 8 oz of American cheese. I just mixed everything together, put the tots on the bottom of the baking pan, and poured the beef/soup/cheese mixture on top. An extra sprinkle of cheese and buttered bread crumbs made a nice crust. I served this with Buttery Cooked Carrots and Michelle's Famous Washed Cranberry Sauce, from this site.

Buttery Cooked Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2007
I loved these carrots--the simple ingredients and cooking method made them nutty and slightly sweet with just a tiny crunch. I used 1/4 cup brown sugar and 2 tablespoons butter. Great recipe!

Michelle's Famous Washed Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2007
This is a good recipe--not too sweet, and I like the combo of white & brown sugar. I always cook my cranberries until they pop & the sauce thickens, so that takes far longer than 5 minutes. I thought the sauce tasted a little acidic, so I added a teaspoon of vanilla, and that made all the difference for me.

Pecan Pear Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
I made this as a cake in an 8 X 3 cake pan, and we loved it. A little like apple cake in texture but a more delicate taste. The cardamom is the perfect touch--it really makes the cake. I used 2 Bosc pears, and the only change I made was to use plain yogurt instead of sour cream. I will definitely include this excellent recipe in my holiday bread baking!

Freezer Caramel Drizzle Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2007
We loved this! Great flavor and the coconut/pecan/butter mixture is delish. I added a crushed Skor bar & 4 oz shaved German chocolate because I was craving chocolate. I'll definitely make this again--I can see infinite possibilities, but it's a keeper as is!

Slow-Cooked White Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2007
This was perfect for a healthy, low-fat, low sodium meal--I added more water and Penzey's soup base to make it more like a soup, but I will try it as chili also. I used corn scraped off the cob and another can of northern beans in place of the garbanzo beans. I followed the suggestion of TOBSCHOLARLY and mashed the beans of one can to thicken--it worked great. We garnished with shredded cheese, sour cream, and salsa and ate with Tostitos Scoops! Great recipe--I will definitely make it again.

Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2007
We really enjoyed the chewiness of these. I made some without chocolate chips for my husband who really prefers peanut butter cookies without chocolate and I actually liked those better! But the chocolate chip ones were very good. I added about 1/2 teaspoon baking powder to give mine some "puff", but I think I'll leave it out next time. I also used honey in place of the corn syrup. Great recipe!

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
This is sensational--we had it with fried chicken strips and on grilled burgers this weekend and it was equally good on both. The mayo provides creaminess for the perfect ratio of honey & mustard. I might try it with fat-free mayo to make it more healthy. Excellent recipe!

Stephen's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2007
Loved the flavor of these! I might add a little more flour next time because I had to chill my dough to keep it from spreading too much. I like the little bit of puffiness the baking powder adds. I used all semi-sweet chips and only pecans. Good keeper recipe!

Turkey Dressing Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2007
Seriously delicious and so fragrant! I subbed WW pastry flour for 1/2 cup of the flour, used honey in place of the sugar, not as much salt, and I forgot the egg! Had to cut a piece & butter it fresh from the oven--yum! This should be awesome on a sandwich.

Sausage Cheese Puffs

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2007
Great snack to watch OU Sooner football I didn't have enough biscuit mix so I supplemented with Biscuit Baking Mix, from this website. I think the addition of baking powder makes these a little lighter. I used lean sausage and about 1/3 cup water instead of 1/2 cup.

Zesty Bean Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2007
We thought this was really tasty. I sauteed in a cast iron skillet in about 2 teaspoons olive oil. I didn't have taco seasoning, so my daughter suggested cumin, then we added chili powder, onion powder & garlic powder. We used 1/4 cup salsa instead of the tomato and we added about a tablespoonful of diced jalapeno plus juice. Thanks for a good idea!

Southern Butter Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2007
Like Kiss-the-Cook, I agree that these are good but not memorable. I did some procedure adjustments per the excellent suggestions of Tunisianswife, and the texture was light and chewy inside, just not quite enough flavor for me.

Pesto

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
I toasted some almonds in place of the pine nuts and added lemon juice per the suggestion of IMVINTAGE (whose photo of the recipe is what attracted me to it!)This was quite delicious over Really Creamy Fettuccine Alfredo, from this website, and spread on some garlic toast--double whammy!
