Panna Cotta

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
What a wonderful, sinful dessert! I used 2 cups heavy cream and 1/2 cup half & half because I did not have enough heavy cream on hand. I substituted approximately 1/3 cup granulated Splenda for the sugar, as my husbands parents are diabetic. When the cream and sugar began to boil, I grated some fresh nutmeg and I poured and cooled in champagne glasses (not flutes) with a fresh strawberry cut and fanned across the top. So good!

Kristie's Chicken Spectacular

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
So quick, easy and tasty! I made this without the cheese and it was awesome! Although, for an added kick, I happened upon French fried jalapenos in the grocery store by the salad toppers (croutons, etc). They are prepared the same way as the onions, so I used half jalapenos and half onions. YUM!!! Just enough kick and incredibly good! (I would give five stars, but I personally feel the cheese is totally unnecessary) :)

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
So easy! I add one small extra step to the preparation. I mix 1 T softened butter, 1/4 tsp. minced garlic and a sprinkling of basil together and lightly spread under the skin of each breast. Instead of aluminum foil, I cut potatoes in halves or thirds (depending on the size), cut an onion in wedges and sprinkle some baby carrots in the bottom of the slow cooker. Place your chicken on top to cook and you've got a full meal in one pot!

Guacamole

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
Simple recipe, absolutely awesome! I didn't have dry cayenne so I added a couple shots of Tobassco sauce. No fresh cilantro so I used dry. We served it with a dollop of sour cream. Yum!

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2009
Delicious salad! I added some chopped green onions which really made the flavor pop. I did not have poppy seeds on hand, so I skipped them - excellent without anyway!

Bing Cherry Congealed Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
This has been a family favorite for over 30 years (all of my life). Tons of flavor and the different textures are great too. My favorite thing about this salad is the zing from the carbonated cola!

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

I had such a craving for brocolli salad and this hit the spot! I didn't have sunflower seeds and didn't miss them. So easy and oh so good.

Butter Rich Spritz Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
This is a delicious recipe and very easy. The dough was a bit stiff to pipe or press, so I added a bit of half & half until it was a little less firm. They baked up beautifully. I actually piped them into 4 inch bars and dipped half of each cookie in chocolate. Wonderful!

Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
I love making pies, but this is my first attempt at blueberry. I used fresh blueberries and did not adjust the ingredients listed - I did, however, add to them. I bumped the cinnamon up a bit, added some fresh grated nutmeg and added about a tablespoon of lemon juice. I topped the pie with an egg wash and a little sanding sugar. I did protect the crust with aluminum foil which I removed for the last 10 minutes. Baked 45 minutes total and it was beautiful and set perfectly. *I made this again with fructose instead of regular sugar as my parents are borderline diabetic. They said it was the best blueberry pie they have ever eaten! This is definitely a keeper!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
So easy, soooo good. I didn't really make any changes. For super easy cleanup, I used a sheet pan lined with parchment. Just roll it up and pitch it. A great way to quickly prepare tilapia.

Apple Sausage Appetizers

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
This is a new family favorite! I didn't have chunky applesauce the first time I made it, but smooth works great. We used polish sausage cut in 1-inch pieces and I add a bit of garlic powder to the mix as well. We always serve it with German potato pancakes and sour cream. Oh so good!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
Wonderful recipe. This recipe is incredibly easy. I do precook my meatballs to save time and we like the carmelized coating on the meatballs, but otherwise I follow the recipe exactly. My husband actually prefers this now to his 100% Italian mom's sauce - quite an accomplishment, I'd say.

Rhubarb Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
Incredibly easy and good. I just made them for breakfast. I didn't have any regular biscuits, so I used the large flaky variety. Excellent! Very filling but I'm tempted to get another cup of tea and another dumpling. This could be bad for the waistline. :)

Strawberry/Rhubarb Crumb Pie

Reviewed: May 14, 2007
Incredible pie! We bought our new home and inherited a ton of rhubarb in our garden. This was my first attempt baking with rhubarb and I am very pleased. I did make two minor additions. I added just a touch of almond extract to the filling and a bit of freshly grated nutmeg to the topping. I made two pies in the early afternoon and they were set perfectly by dessert! My dad paid the best compliment - he said my great grandma would really love this pie. She was very well known for her baking skill so this recipe is definitely a keeper! Thank you so much for sharing!

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2007
Versatile recipe. I did not have muenster cheese, so I used some shredded mozzarella, but because I did not have much, I addes 1/3 of a block cream cheese. Doubled cheddar and velveeta. Rich and cheesy and extremely filling! Very good.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2007
Awesome! I made it for the office and people could not get enough. I shredded the zucchini with the smallest holes on the grater. It was moist and delicious.

Best Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2006
This soup was very tasty and my family enjoyed it. I did not have time to cook the soup all day, so instead of using the crock pot, I cooked the veggies in the pot until soft - I used a bit more beef broth because I simmered it on the stove and it cooked down fairly quickly - from start to finish in about two and one-half hours. We also used cheese tortellini instead of the spinach pasta. Very hearty and warmed the soul on a cool fall evening.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2006
This cake is incredibly moist and truly satisfies those chocolate cravings! I only had mini chocolate chips and these worked out well - every bite had a bunch. I also lessened the oil to 1/2 cup and used 1/2 cup milk instead. Very easy to make with little clean up - makes the house smell devine! I think we just found a new family favorite!
