The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2003
I made this recipe today for holiday cut-out cookies. This is a great recipe, extremely easy to make and the cookies came out PERFECT!!! I used orange extract instead of vanilla. I know I should have made more than one batch because my 2-year-old keeps sneaking them..they'll be gone before Christmas arrives!

Delicious Baked Chicken Kiev

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2004
I love chicken kiev in restaurants but have never been able to duplicate it at home, this recipe comes close. The only thing I would change is instead of using sweetened cereal for the coating, I would use plain corn flakes. Next time I may also just try italian-seasoned bread crumbs and leave out all the other spices that are supposed to go into the coating. The contrast between the sweetness of the coating and the chicken was just to odd for my family's taste. Other than that, the chicken tasted great and I will definitely be making this recipe again.

Chocolate Cake Shot

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2004
I actually had this shot last summer and got the recipe from a neighbor. This shot is awesome! You wouldn't think the ingredients would taste like chocolate cake when all swallowed together, but it really does!! Be sure NOT to swallow the lemon juice/sugar before you drink the shot, swallow everything together!! YUM!

Hershey's ® 'Perfectly Chocolate' Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2004
This cake was pretty good. Mine turned out kind of dry, but it still had a good chocolatey flavor. I'll probably stick with my other chocolate cake recipe but this was worth a try.

Nanny's Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2005
This recipe was DELICIOUS!! I didn't have any jar sauce on hand but had all the ingredients this recipe required (except the red pepper flakes, left them out). This recipe is easy and delicious. I added 1 lb. of ground beef and used extra garlic (6 cloves). I didn't have red wine vinegar so I used 1 Tbsp. balsalmic vinegar and it was still delicious! Thank you for this recipe, I'll never use jarred sauce again!

Classy Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2005
This dish is DEEEEELICIOUS!!!! My husband and daughter loved it. The sauce is amazing. I followed the recipe exactly but next time will use 1 cup of chicken broth, as other reviewers suggested, because we like a lot of sauce. This recipe is definitely a keeper and I'll be making it often. Thanks!!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2005
EXCELLENT!! For the crust I used the Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust that you just unroll. This pot pie is very tasty. I took the advice of some of the other posters and brushed the bottom crust with egg wash before adding the chicken/veggie mixture. I also brushed the top crust but didn't need to, the crust was flaky and yummy. My husband thinks this dish is the best thing I've ever made (I'm not known as a good cook, so when I make something he LOVES, I know it's good!!) I will be making this often! Thans for sharing this great recipe!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2005
An excellent cookie!! Not the "best" cookie I've ever tasted but this recipe is definitely a keeper. I love chewy cookies and this cookie is definitely chewy!! I took the advice of others and only used 2 cups of oatmeal and 1/2 tsp. salt and they came out great. I really do think that 3 cups oatmeal would be WAY too much. I used one whole 12 oz. bag of chocolate chips instead of just one cup. I think next time I'll stick to the recipe and use only one cup because a whole bag is too much, for my taste. If you like a lot of chocolate chips in your cookies, though, go for 12 oz. instead of one cup!!!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2005
These are wonderful! I never really was a fan of snickerdoodles when my mom made them when I was a child, but I decided to make these because of all of the rave reviews. They are so yummy!! I will definitely be making these again!

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
These are excellent and smell so yummy while baking. I had trouble with the dought, though. It would not come together so I had to add small amounts of milk at a time just until the dough came together, and they turned out just fine. I used raspberry jam and also made some with strawberry. My daughter loved helping me make the "thumbprint" (we used the back of a plastic measuring spoon) and sliding the jelly off of the spoon and onto the cookie. This recipe is a keeper!!

Secret Kiss Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2005
I love this cookie. My mom used to make these every Christmas but when I wanted to make them this year I couldn't find her recipe. These taste just like hers did and I'm so happy!! YUMMY! My daughter enjoyed unwrapping all of the Kisses (and sneaking a few herself).

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2005
Very tasty. My mom had a similar recipe that I've always used but I decided to try this one. I ruined the first batch because the brittle never set and was very chewy. I tried it a gain and cooked it a little longer and it turned out awesome!!! My microwave is 10 years old and is 1540 Watts...I cooked the brittle for 5 minutes, then 3 minutes and it turned out perfectly. This recipe is easier than my mom's and I think I'll be using this one from now on!!!! Everybody is going to be oh-so-happy at Christmas when they see all the homemade peanut brittle!!

Chicken Andouille Gumbo

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2006
Oh wow, was this yummy!! When I told my husband I was going to try and make this recipe, he rolled his eyes at me (I'm not known to be a good cook). I found this recipe easy to make and it smelled wonderful while cooking. When my husband tasted it he exclaimed "This is GOOD!!". He also requested that I make this a part of my "regular" meals. We really enjoyed it, and so did my 4.5 year old daughter. I couldn't find file powder anywhere so I just bought some cajun seasoning and sprinkled it in. This recipe is definitely a keeper and I will surely be making this over and over again!!!

Corned Beef and Cabbage I

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2006
Absolutely delicious. I started out by cooking this on the stove top as the recipe states (for about 45 minutes) but due to a family emergency, I had to leave the house. Before leaving, I put the meat and liquid into my crock pot. By the time I got home, the meat was perfectly cooked (45 minutes on stove, then 7 hours in crock pot for an almost 3 lb. roast). I took the advice of some other reviewers and added 1/2 stick of butter to the liquid as the meat cooked and I also used beef broth instead of water. The next day on the stovetop I cooked the cabbage, carrots and potatoes in the liquid the meat cooked in the night before. When the vegetalbes were done, I added the meat back into the liquid just to warm it. It was SOOOOOO good!! I will definitely make this again!!

Antipasto Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2006
This is SO SO SO tasty!! I made a few changes: Instead of seashell pasta I used Campanelle. Instead of plain, canned black olives I used the jarred gourmet mixed olives (except I accidentally bought them with the pits...cutting all those olives off the pits too a while!). I cubed the salami instead of chopping it. I used pre-sliced pepperoni and used Sargento brand Bistro Blends shredded cheese in the Mozzarella and Asiago with roasted garlic variety. I also sliced grape tomatoes instead of the large ones..to me they're just sweeter and tastier. For the dressing, I followed the directions exactly but I added all the ingredients to one of those salad dressing shakers (for homemade dressing) and shook it all up. I then refrigerated it for an hour while the salad itself was being refrigerated. Then, after an hour, I poured the dressing over the salad and mixed it all up. I covered it and served it the next day at a church function. I was so yummy!! It's best to make a head of time so the flavors develop. I'm going to make this again for my daughter's birthday party in a couple of weeks!!!!!

Guacamole

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2006
This was my first time making guacamole. I always thought it was too difficult to make. Boy, was I wrong!! This was delicious! I ate 1/2 of it myself in one sitting!! The only thing I will do differently next time is cut the salt in half, to 1/2 tsp. I thought 1 tsp. was too salty. I used red onion and only used what I thought "looked" like enough. In addition to minced garlic, I also sprinkled some granulated garlic in it. This is excellent! I'm going to make it for my daughter's birthday party next week!

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2006
I'll have to admit, I was VERY nervous about making this. I love chicken curry but have never made it before, thinking it would be way out of my league since I'm not extraordinary in the kitchen. Nonetheless, I found this recipe to be very tasty, but my husband and I both agreed that it was missing "something", but we couldn't figure out what. I added carrots, red bell peppers and green onions. Next time, I will leave the carrots out, I didn't care for them at all in this dish. The bell peppers and scallions were nice, though. I used 2 tablespoons of sugar instead of 3. I also added a sprinkle of garlic powder and cayenne pepper and used a bit more curry...I was trying to figure out what this was missing!! My husband said "this was good, make it again, but it wasn't great". If I could figure out the ingredient that this dish is missing that would make it great, I'd give it 5 stars!!!
