Artichoke and Black Olive Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2013
This was a hit at our Christmas pot luck. We used all chicken drumsticks. Also used a little more white wine than called for just to use up a bottle. Everyone was calling it Mediterranean chicken. Thanks!

Cinnamon Black Walnut Ice Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
This is very good. I used evaporated milk and half and half. After mixing the ingredients I did not chill them since they were already cold. In fact my black walnuts were frozen. I used black walnut extract instead of vanilla. Yes black walnuts are expensive but they are well worth it for the authentic taste of this ice cream. Subbing regular walnuts will not get the same taste. Thanks!

Quick Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2013
I was so glad to find a lemon muffin recipe that actually used lemon juice. I had two lemons that I needed to use up so this fit the bill for part of them. The batter was easy to prepare and made 12 muffins exactly. They baked up perfectly in 30 minutes. Easy and delicious! I don't tend to like lemon flavor in baked goods but I ate two of these.

Banana Cake II

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2013
I halved the recipe and baked in a 9x9" pan for about 30 minutes. Since I couldn't halve an egg, I used just one egg and a little more mashed banana. I ended up using two bananas for 3/4 cup. The cake is very moist. I topped it with a basic cream cheese frosting. The cake has great banana flavor.

Strawberry and Spinach Salad with Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2013
This was very good. I am not a fan of balsamic vinegar but I used it and it was good dressing. The only thing different I did was use Stilton cheese and dressing the salads individually. I will do this again!

Creamy Strawberry Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
A pretty simple basic recipe. I think depending on the strawberries, a little sugar could be added to the mixture. This would also make a good dip for fruit.

Lazy Housewife Pickles

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2013
These are really good. I want my pickles crunchy and lets face it, you can't can them or process them without them becoming softer. I used two packages of Persian Cucumbers (small 6" cucumbers) from Trader Joe's which worked out perfectly for the two quart jars. I didn't add any onions because I didn't have sweet ones but I most certainly will next time. I mixed the sugar and vinegar together but added the spices directly to the jars so they'd be even. I poured the sugar/vinegar mixture over them and sealed them. Occasionally when I went into the refrigerator I would shake them because all the spices will settle to the bottom. I will be making these again and again. I have just tasted them after 1 week and they are good but still taste of cucumber. I will be interested to see how the flavor and crispness develops after more time. I think I will keep the liquid and spices and just add more cucumbers to the jar. Thanks for the great recipe!

Hearty Hamburger Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
Really cold here today so I was looking for a soup to make for dinner and wanted to use hamburger. This one fit the bill! I only had 1 lb of hamburger, the bottom of a box of barley which probably was only about 1/4 cup, used no water, one quart jar of home canned tomatoes, 1 can of beef broth (10 oz) and added a bit of Montreal steak seasoning. This is warm, hearty and filling. Thanks!

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2013
I used unsalted crackers and unsalted butter. I think it definitely needed some salt. I also did not add the chopped nuts but will next time. This is excellent.

Vegetable Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2013
I grew up on homemade vegetable soup and frankly have avoided it my whole life because I was burned out on it. Even the smell would turn my stomach. However, I'm trying to eat better and wanted to make this as a treat for my DH who loves vegetable soup. I was very surprised to find that this was nothing like my mother's soup (which is a good thing) and I really enjoyed it. I think I added just enough pepper to give it a kick. I halved the recipe and used half chicken broth because I had some to use up. I will be making this again!

Chicken and Broccoli Braid

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2013
This was very good. I made it at the last minute to go with some homemade soup on a very cold windy night. I halved the recipe but didn't change anything except reducing the dill somewhat. When I make it again, and I will, I will leave the dill measurement as is and reduce the baking time just a bit and add more nuts. The crescent rolls were burned around the edges and on the bottom just slightly. Thanks! Just a small update: these do NOT reheat well. I had halved the recipe and still had leftovers and when I tried reheating in the microwave, the rolls went completely mushy. Maybe a better alternative would be to make the stuffing and stuff individual rolls, rather making the whole thing.

Creamy Corn Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2012
This was the second of two soups that I made for a holiday luncheon. I used frozen corn that we cut off the cobs and froze last summer. I made approximately 1 1/2 times the recipe and didn't measure either the chicken broth or the milk (which I used half and half for). I used 4 ounces of cream cheese (half an 8 ounce block). I also added a healthy dose of dried chives and half a jalapeno diced small. This soup was a hit and will be made again. Thanks!

Ham and Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
I made this using rice crust for quiche (recipe on this site). I had some leftover ham from Easter and a little bit of cooked mixed vegetables from dinner along with Jarlsberg cheese. The combination of everything with the rice crust was almost like baked (fried) rice. I made a one serving quiche for myself for lunch. It was good. Thanks!

Bow Ties in Beef Blush Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2012
I followed the recipe but used what I had on hand which was a can of Rotel instead of salsa and Philadelphia Cooking Creme Roasted Garlic flavor instead of the regular cream cheese. I halved the recipe using 1/2 pound of ground beef. It was good and a quick lunch. Thanks!

Dijon Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2012
I used poached chicken breasts instead of canned and ran it through the food processor with 3/4 of a vidalia onion to mince fine. I really didn't measure anything. I used green grapes and added some chopped cilantro. No cranberries or celery. I used Hellman's Olive Oil Mayonnaise with Black Pepper. My darling husband can't stop talking about this salad. Next time I will add some chopped nuts. Thanks!

Tomato Soup Spice Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2013
Outstanding! I had half a can of tomato soup to use up after making the Dorothy Lynch salad dressing (recipe here on AR) and was led to this recipe by the reviews on the salad dressing. While being skeptical about putting tomato soup in a cake, I pressed on and made a half recipe. I baked it in a 9x9" square pan for about 30 minutes. I may have overcooked it just a bit because the edges and corners were very dry. I just eyeballed the cream cheese frosting using a partial package of cream cheese also left over from another recipe. I think you could put cream cheese frosting on shoe leather and it would be delicious! This cake was a delicious surprise. Thanks!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2013
Oh My! I must say upfront that I am NOT a chocolate chip cookie fan and was making these for someone else as a gift. I used margarine and shortening instead of butter and subbed 1 cup of chopped Andes Mints for half the chocolate chips. The batter did seem greasy before baking and I hesitated to make them 1/4 cup big but I followed the directions. These cookies come out of the oven like they came straight from a bakery and they are yummy! I wasn't going to try them but couldn't resist. I definitely will make these again. Thanks!

Cream Cheese Mints

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2012
Made one recipe but used 4 ounces of cream cheese (1/2 of an 8 ounce block) and 1/4 t peppermint extract. They were very good and a hit at my holiday luncheon. I rolled the dough into small balls (probably about 1 t or less) and flattened with a fork like a peanut butter cookie. It made about 30 of that size.

Key Lime Daiquiri Pound Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
This was a hit at my after Thanksgiving party. It was a last minute decision to make the cake because I had key limes to use. My only complaint was that the time given was too long and the cake burned slightly on the top. I probably will make it again. Thanks!

Blackberry Cobbler II

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
I used 4 cups of frozen blackberries but I think after thawing and draining there was less than 4 cups. I made the fruit filling in a saucepan on the stove, cutting down the sugar to 3/4 c. I wish I'd cut it more. I added just a touch of almond extract. I poured the hot filling in a glass Pyrex pan and then topped with spoonfuls of the topping. I sprinkled a bit of Turbinado sugar on top. My husband called it a foodgasm. It was a bit sweet for me. I think it would be good with Costco's frozen three berry mixture. I will be making this again.
