Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2003
I saw the comments about the loaf's tendancy to fall and would like to suggest adding about 1/2 tsp more salt into your machine when you bake the bread. Salt regulates yeast activity and strengthens dough structure. Too little salt can cause the dough to rise rapidly and then fall. I've seen that for 2 1/4 tsp (.25 oz) of bread machine yeast, the general salt amount is 1.5 tsp. I made this recipe with the extra salt and it turned out really well. It is the best loaf of white bread I've gotten from my machine so far -- and it rose really high (it had me slightly concerned it might over rise). But it was a beautiful loaf in the end.

Incredible Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2003
I usually don't like sweet meat, but this chicken had a pretty good flavor. I did end up adding a lot more garlic and some more brown sugar than was called for, plus I poured melted butter over the chicken first.

Oregon Salmon Patties

Reviewed: May 28, 2003
This is a great salmon recipe--nothing needed changed, and I used all the reserve liquid and it didn't make the patty too moist. My fresh parsley went bad before I could use it, so I just used dried parsley flakes instead and it still turned out great! I will be making these again!

Easy Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2003
This was a really good lemon bar recipe, however it really needs to have double the filling. Also, the amount of lemon juice the recipe calls for makes for a really mild lemony flavor. I would suggest, if you like the bars to be lemony, increasing the amount of lemon juice. We used 5 tbls in ours. This recipe passed my boyfriend's taste test--and we've been through every box recipe the stores have to offer!

English Muffin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2003
Wow! I adore english muffins and I really loved this bread. It was just like eating an english muffin without the crust underneath the muffin. Toasted and lightly buttered, this bread was awesome. I was able to make it in my bread machine, too -- I cut the recipe in half to make a 1.5 lb loaf and used 1 1/2 tsp bread machine yeast instead of 2 1/4 tsp (.25 oz) active dry yeast. I also added about 1.5 tablespoon butter to the dough. I let it run on my basic setting with light crust. I let it cook for about 50 out of the 60 minutes, but it would have turned out fine if I had left it in the entire time, but it the crust was light and crunchy at 50 mins. A great recipe, I'm sure to use it often. Thanks!

Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2003
This is a great recipe, it turned out perfect. A word to the wise, however--I needed my 9x13" pan for dinner, so I thought I'd try to use a 7x11" pan for the pretzel salad instead. That was a mistake--I ended up having to leave out some of the delicious strawberry topping!

Best Ever Meatloaf with Brown Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2003
The meatloaf itself was good, however an extra egg might have helped it hold together better. The gravy, however, wouldn't have had any flavor if it weren't for the mushrooms and onions. I probably will make it again, but I think I will mix a package of beef gravy mix into the beef broth and then add it to the mushrooms and onions.

French Egg and Bacon Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2004
This tasted the best when you got a bite of the toast, bacon, egg and syrup all at once. It reminds me a little of the McGriddle sandwhiches at McDonalds -- I do think it's better than those!

Judy's Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
This recipe makes the perfect pretzel salad. Word of caution: if you have thoughts of completely crushing the pretzels into crumbs, don't do it! I stuck the pretzels in the food processor once and the result just wasn't the same. Chunks of pretzels work best for this dessert!

Hot Chicken Sandwiches II

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2003
This was pretty good, however halfway through the meal my bf and I both ditched the bread in favor of just the meat. It was pretty filling and works well without the bun. Next time I might add some cheese to melt on the top of the chicken. The only thing I did differently was add some onion powder, poultry seasoning, celery salt and italin seasoning while it was cooking.

Camp Cornbread

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2003
I've already reviewed this, but I had to write and rave more about this recipe. This cornbread tastes so great, and it is so perfect! I'd been looking for this recipe for a long time, and this is just right! I've made this a few times since I found the recipe. The last time I made it, my company was fighting over the last pieces! I think I'll double or triple the recipe next time!

Sweet and Sour Sauce I

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2003
This was a good sauce--not quite your ordinary sweet and sour, but good none the less. I did substitute 1/4 cup of white sugar for brown, and I had no vineger on hand so I had to use lemon juice instead. I also cut the soy sauce down to 1 tablespoon. But the sauce turned out really well, and I served it with chicken last night. Thanx!

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2003
Great recipe, especially for a quick dinner fix--I heated up two cans precooked, cubed chicken breast in a little bit of olive oil and a clove of garlic, then removed it from the pan and made double the sauce. I added the chicken back in along with the parsley after adding the cheese (I used fresh parmesean and it was great) and garlic, and continued to simmer while stirring for about five more minutes. The result was a great sauce!

Strawberry Sauce Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2003
I didn't like this recipe at all (I don't really care for sweet meat), but my boyfriend and daughter did. However I didn't have the ingredients listed. I couldn't find just plain strawberry nectar, so I used strawberry banana nectar, and I was short on that. I ended up adding a few dobs of strawberry preserves in the mix. But not a bad recipe according to the family!

Ground Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 20, 2003
These were good, but there didn't seem to be enough beef flavor--it was somewhat overwhelmed by the chicken soup. Next time I will try using 8" flour tortillas so that I can fit more beef in them, and using an extra package of taco seasoning mix, but the meat didn't seem to be seasoned quite enough. Also, the 6 6" tortillas did not fit well in the 7x11" dish, it works much better in a 9x13". I definitely will try this recipe again!

Chili I

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2003
Awesome! I don't eat chili, but I made this for my (very picky) boyfriend who does. I've tried a few chili recipies out on him, and he's liked them all right, but this one took the cake. He told me, "This is 400 times better than the last chili recipe you tried--this is a man's chili." I pretty much followed the directions, except I cut the brown sugar down to 1/3 cup, which made the chili "borderline" on sweetness according to the picky bf. Also, he doesn't like hot chile peppers, so I cut those out and added some extra pepper and chili powder instead.

Banana Pudding Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2003
This is pretty good, although I can see why some people think it tastes more like banana bread. I kind of think that too, except it was sweeter, and the glaze adds a nice touch to it. The yellow cake mix I bought had "double pudding in the mix," which made the cake so moist. I made about 1 1/2 times the amount of glaze the recipe called for, and poked holes in the cake so that some of the glaze could seep through. I refrigerated it and served it nice and cold. It was really good!

Better Than Sex Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2003
This was absolutely fabulous, and I don't really care for chocolate! I served this for some friends, and when one guy was asked if it was better than sex, he said "No... OMG it's so moist!" We all got a pretty good laugh out of it. I used milky way ice cream topping instead of just the caramel, and topped it with chopped up Heath bars--it was so great!

Amy's Garlic Egg Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2003
This was a great recipe--the chicken was so moist, full of flavor, and golden brown. My only recommendation would be to maybe line the pan with foil so you don't get such a stuck on mess when you're through eating.

Bourbon Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2006
I came across this recipe about a year ago, and ever since then have made this dish once or twice a month. It doesn't even need to marinate. It's simple, but also fit for company. I use chicken strips instead of chicken breasts; I find it comes out juicer that way. I also double the sauce so I have more to thicken and serve over the chicken and the rice.
