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!

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.

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!

Oatmeal Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2003
These were really great with butter--I halved the recipe and then wished I hadn't! These were good left over too.

Oven Fried Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2003
This was really good--the skin was golden brown, crispy and delicious, and I don't usually like the skin on chicken. The only changes I made was adding more garlic than the recipe called for, and adding some poulty seasoning and garlic herb seasoning to the breading.

Slow Cooker Roast Beef

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2003
This was great! After letting it cook for about 10 hours overnight, I went to flip the roast over. When I attempted to lift the roast with a fork, pieces of roast beef went flying everywhere because it was already so tender! By the time it was done I had to pull the roast out in many small, tender pieces. Also, I was out of onion soup mix, so I used beefy onion instead -- the roast was fine, but the gravy was VERY beefy tasting. Next time I'll make sure I have the onion soup on hand!

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.

Garlic Bubble Ring

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2003
I love bread, and this turned out great. The only thing I have to say is that you don't need as much butter as the recipe calls for. I love butter, so I took all the butter I had left over and poured it over the bread and it was delicious, but just a little too buttery--I would recommend using only 1/2 cup of butter instead of 3/4. And if you aren't planning on pouring the butter over the bread before you bake it then you should use even less butter than that.

Angel Hair Pasta with Garlic Shrimp and Broccoli

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2003
This was great--definitely restaurant quality. I did double the sauce, however, and was happy that I did so because it wouldn't have tasted so good otherwise. Also, since it was just my bf and I eating all that food, I couldn't bear the thought of letting all that delicious meal go to waste (I figured the reheating value wouldn't be that great) so I packed it up and took it over to my mother at work--she loved it too! Next time I have company I will make this dish.

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!

Southern Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2003
I have never made sweet potatoes before, so I looked all over the site for a recipe that got rave reviews. I wasn't dissapointed in my choice. My boyfriend was whining because there weren't any little colored marshmallows, and he'd never heard of sweet potatoes cooked on top of the stove before, but when he tasted them he said they were great, much better than the last time he'd eaten them. I did substitute 1/2 cup white sugar for brown, and I ended up adding about a handful more brown sugar part way through because it wasn't thickening as much as I'd like. But after that it thickened up nicely, and was done in about an hour like promised. Great recipe, thank you!

Rolled Dumplings

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2004
This was a great dumpling recipe -- they taste just like the homemade dumplings I'm used to eating at my mom's.

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.

Portuguese Chicken I

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
This recipe became an instant favorite at our house. I've made it no less than two dozen times since I found it. I use skinless chicken tenders. The browning cooks those most of the way through. I then add all of the recommended liquid (which more than covers the tenders) and simmer for 15 minutes or so. I leave the flour out, and instead thicken with a bit of cornstarch at the end. I also finish with about 1/3 cup grated parmesean cheese.

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!

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!

Creamy Chicken and Rice Soup

Reviewed: May 27, 2003
This was a great recipe--so full of flavor! It wasn't exactly soup like, but my family and I didn't mind. I don't like whole pieces of onions or celery, so I substitued with onion powder and celery salt, and it was still great and full of flavor. I made it yesterday, and what was left over has already been eaten!
