Chicken Korma II

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
As with all stews/soups, this needs to be made at least a few hours ahead to let the seasonings blend. I did change things a bit. I only used 2 tsp. oil (and added 1/4 cup water to replace the oil.) I simply ground my cashews in a coffee grinder without the water. (I have one set aside for grinding anything but coffee.) I used fresh ginger paste and a garlic press for the garlic. Therefore, I didn't have to clean my food processor. I added 2 1/2 cups more low-sodium chicken broth and 1/4 cup cornstarch to give it more sauce. I used milk instead of cream fat-free yogurt. I also added golden raisins. I served it atop basmati rice alongside steamed peas. I garnished it with fresh chopped cilantro & sliced almonds. Delicious!

I'm not planning on making this again. It was dry and tasteless.

Almond Chicken Casserole II

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2006
This would have been bland (so good for picky children)as is. I added 1/2 cup sour cream, 2 cloves garlic, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1 tsp. dill. I liked the combination. I only had pecans so I used those instead of almonds. I also used crushed potato chips instead of the corn flakes because I didn't have corn flakes.

Port Wine Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2006
If you have the ingredients to make this recipe, I'd recommend making something else with them. This was okay. It was VERY dry. There are SO many better chocolate dessert recipes out there.

Candy Bar Bars by EAGLE BRAND®

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
This was pretty disappointing for me because of the previous great reviews. I did spray the pan liberally which is definitely necessary. I used 3 cups of chopped sinckers and 1 cup of chopped peanuts as mentioned by another reviewer. I didn't like the chopped peanuts. It was kind of crumbly but held together well enough. I just feel there are much better bar cookies out there.

Peanut Butter Temptations

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2005
These cookies look great -- especially with melted chocolate drizzled over the tops like in the picture. The taste was good, but not incredible. My guests all remarked how good they looked, but they each only ate one.

Sugar Cookie Drops

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2005
Exactly what it says: crisp cookie that melts in your mouth. One person asked for the recipe and they were eaten quickly by hungry co-workers. The only negative is that they're not great looking. They look like cookies that have too much butter/oil and not enough flour because they do flatten out. I did add an extra 1/2 cup of flour for the remaining dough after I saw what the first batch looked like. If these cookies were next to other cookies I don't know if they'd be chosen first, but they are yummy. I'll definitely be keeping this recipe.

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2004
I took this for a church dessert night, and less than 1/4 was eaten. This was good fudge, but not a spectacular dessert in general, I guess. It did crumble when cut, so the pieces didn't look perfect. In response to other reviews: 1) If your fudge doesn't harden properly, you haven't boiled it long enough. When it says "boil for 2 minutes" that is referring to a rapid boil, not a few occasionaly bubbles. 2) For those who found they got "pebbles" when stirring the mixture into the confectioner's sugar, use less confectioner's sugar. The suggestion to use the 3 cups of confectioner's sugar, 2 cups of brown sugar, and 1 cup of peanut butter is what I did. 3) The suggestion to add cocoa powder to 1/3 of the mix and then swirl it in sounds great, but specifics weren't given. I'm guessing you'd add about 1 1/2 Tbsp. cocoa powder to the 1/3 mixture BEFORE pouring it into the confectioner's sugar. I don't really know how you'd swirl it in either. It's pretty dry. I'd love to hear how to do it, though. Chocolate makes everything better!

Chili I

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2003
6th Place Chili. Try something else. I cooked it exactly as directed for a chili contest in Texas (where people know their chili). As soon as I finished cooking it, I tasted it and was so disappointed. It's so mediocre. It's not bad, but it's not great. In a blind chili cook-off with 15 enteries and 12 judges, this chili got 6th place. I was amazed it even placed.
