Ranch Dipped Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
These were delicious, but I had problems. Like MIASMAMA, mine stuck to my cooking-sprayed pan. And like LoveTo Bake, mine didn't get brown, so I finally had to broil them to get them golden & crispy. I didn't make the sauce.

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
This is a wonderful combo of pumpkin bread and gingerbread. I made a small loaf, 12 mini-muffins, and an 11 X 7 pan to eat like gingerbread. Fragrant, moist, spicy, and homey--great recipe!

Pumpkin Apple Butter

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
My kitchen smelled so good this afternoon. It makes me happy to smell pumpkin and apple and cinnamon--it reminds me that fall is here! My only change was in the spices because I don't care for cloves--I added a little ginger instead. Super easy recipe, nice fruity overtones to the pumpkin, can't wait to try it on a biscuit! Thank you, Robbin Runtas!

King Ranch Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
Any time my husband loves something called "casserole", I give a 5-star rating! The only changes I made were to use a can of green chiles and a little jar of pimentos in place of the diced tomatoes & chiles, and I added a little chicken broth. I did have to kick the oven up to 350, and it took longer than 20 minutes. Loved the addition of tortilla chips--very good recipe!

Chicken Cheese Chowder

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
This was a good comfort food to make for my daughter who is feeling under the weather. I didn't have carrots or celery on hand, so I subbed corn and canned green beans. I did not make the white sauce, just used the processed cheese, and I forgot to add the soy sauce. Before serving I sampled it & added a little salsa to spice it up. Delicious, even with my changes!

Crusty Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2007
Charles, I would say your sis-in-law did you a tremendous favor in sending this recipe, because these rolls are outstanding! I followed the recipe precisely, didn't have to add flour except to knead and to shape the rolls. They rose beautifully and the taste was out of this world good--tender, chewy inside with a nice crust. This recipe is a 5-star keeper--thank you!

Campfire Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2007
These were a very nice change. I followed KJTries suggestion and sauteed the onions (I added a shallot) and garlic before adding the almonds (which I toasted lightly). I didn't take these to a campfire, but they were great with our dinner! Thanks for sharing, Glenda!

Dried Cherry Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2007
What a perfect little cake! It is SO good--tender, light, just sweet enough, and nicely enhanced with just a hint of almond--maybe the best coffeecake I've ever made. I used Stoneridge Orchards Berrymix of dried cranberries, cherries, strawberries, blueberries, & raspberries, and I left them whole. Soaking them in the hot almond-flavored water is a great idea! Super recipe, and one I will treasure--thanks, Melanie!

Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2007
I made 1/4 the amount of the recipe and it was plenty for my batch of Sugar Cookie Cutouts, from this site. I did have to add a little more sugar to reach the consistency I wanted. I like the simplicity of this recipe. Thanks for sharing, Diana!

Sugar Cookie Cutouts

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2007
My family has now voted this their favorite sugar cookie recipe, topping my Granny's treasured recipe. Not sure how I feel about that, but this recipe does yield a very workable dough and a soft, not-to-sweet cookie that is adaptable to a number of flavorings and spices. I added nutmeg to my dough, and it was perfect--it was not bland and was plenty sweet with or without icing. I rolled these a little thicker than 1/4 inch to make them nice & soft and frosted with Buttercream Frosting, from this site. Excellent recipe, Laura!

Golden Cinnamon Granola

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
I did like the honey/cinnamon/butter combo--the taste is good, although I like mine sweeter. I don't like raisins & left them out, so I'd like to try it again with a little brown sugar to compensate sweet-wise. Even though I used unsalted butter and half the salt, it was still too salty for me. I almost burned mine at 45 minutes, so watch it carefully.

Buttered Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
Easy, quick & good! I was attracted to this recipe by the photo by MommyFromSeattle and followed her suggestions about adding sugar & salt. I rolled the dough and made about 10 smaller biscuits. They didn't rise up real high, but they were light and soft inside with nice crisp edges, and were surprisingly flavorful.

Buttermilk Fried Chicken with Gravy

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
We enjoyed the flavor that the buttermilk added, but I used more than one cup for 3 chicken breasts. I added garlic powder and more pepper and needed a little more flour to coat well. I used 1% milk and no water in the gravy.

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2007
I served this cake as we sat down to watch a movie. I didn't hear the first several minutes of the movie because my Mom was raving so much about the cake! Hubby loved it too. It was light and tender and the kind you like to mash your fork around the plate to get every crumb. I used Creamy Cream Cheese Frosting as the filling and a vanilla butter cream cheese icing. This is great cake!

Creamy Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2007
Made a perfect filling for my chocolate cake. All I added was a teaspoon of vanilla, and all I can say is yummy--I was licking the beaters!

Japanese-Style Sesame Green Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2007
I was drawn to this recipe by all the beautiful photos of it, and it did not disappoint. I went to the store with sesame seeds on my list and forgot to get them, but in spite of that the green beans were perfectly flavored. My husband had 2 huge helpings--and he's not a veggie lover!

Ham Salad Spread

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2007
I halved everything (except the egg) and used celery seed instead of celery, onion powder instead of onions, and left out the mustard. My husband loved it! Served on sandwich buns made from Oatmeal Sourdough Rolls, from this website--very tasty!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
I doubled the recipe and made super-sized cookies. They are easy to make, bake up beautifully, and are fudgy and chocolatey--what more could you ask?

Cherry Pie II

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
Good old-fashioned cherry pie flavor! I love fruit pies that are thickened with flour, such as this one. I used 2 cans of sour cherries, increased the flour to 6 tablespoons and added another 1/2 cup sugar since the cherries were very tart. I added a dash of cinnamon, a teaspoon of vanilla, and 1/4 teaspoon almond extract. Very good recipe, Carol!

Oat-N-Honey Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2007
We enjoyed this tender, flavorful bread with our bacon & tomato sandwiches tonight. I made it manually, baked at 350 for about 30-35 minutes. This will be a repeat recipe at my house!
