Bacon Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: May 21, 2015
I made this from "lefties" as Nanny would say; also, homemade chicken broth. That being said, watch the salt. I didn't add any to the broth so there wasn't any in the dish until I salted. Advice: Wait til done or go easy. I didn't lose my mind, but it was a bit saltier than I expected. I reduced poultry seasoning to 2t & that was plenty; thickened with 1T cornstarch. I added peas & carrots, no corn. 'Was thinking I was making something gravy-ish not soup/stew-ish, more wet than I expected although I should've known.

Christmas Morning Bundt

Reviewed: May 21, 2015
'Thought I'd love this. Initially, reminded me of eggnog; then, french toast. The hazelnut flavor was lost by the spices, which I even halved. 'First time using bread dough. Mine took a few hours to rise. It's Spring so the room wasn't cold, but definitely keep that in mind. Oh, I omitted the sugar since there was so much already. It didn't need it & topping with sugar or syrup, you're set in the sugar department anyway. :) This is good toasted with syrup. K liked it.

Buffalo Chicken Sauce

Reviewed: May 11, 2015
'Not a fire breather here, & wanted a pretty mild sauce. I got it, but a very buttery one, too. Very, very buttery & very, very mild. :(

Famous Chicken Francaise

Reviewed: May 9, 2015
'Going along with most reviews: Bland, but good - eventhough I upped spice in the flour. As for the sauce, maybe I just like lemon-butter sauce as compared to a chicken broth-based sauce for this. I added a lemon & a half of juice to it & it still wasn't all that obvious. I wouldn't like it to scream "lemon," but it was more like chicken gravy (thickened with cornstarch). The flour then egg than flour tip is a great one. I'll have to remember that. :)

Fantastic Pumpkin Bars

Reviewed: May 3, 2015
'Probably better with frosting, but very good without; definitely better for you without. I reduced the oil by a T or 2, used all cinnamon (2t). For the pineapple, I measured a cup then drained it = about 3/4c. A moist & goodtasting snack cake. The carrots aren't very noticeable so could be a "good" one for kids. 'Looks just like the photo. Oh, a 10x14 is a jellyroll pan/cookie sheet. It baked about even with the riim. While I liked this, I doubt I'll make it again. It's quite a bit of prep time & dishwashing for a dish that really doesn't show it, if ya know what I mean. :D

Cream of Wheat Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2015
I halved the butter & still too buttery. A sweet, lightly salty cookie. I'm refrigerating remaining overnight. Fresh ones were a bit gritty. 'Like he thought - iron in a cookie - but nah, not here.

Grandma's Chicken Chardon

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2015
Very moist & fork tender. 'Think I would like more spices though. More lemon flavor would be good as well.

Soft Chocolate PourOverWhileWarm Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2015
While this was good, it's much like a hot fudge cake sauce. Ya know pour-hot-water-over & bake. Good, but not really frosting, more like hot fudge. Better description: Thicker than chocolate sauce, but not as thick (or as good) as hot fudge.

Chocolate Ganache

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2015
Wow. I'd "heard of" ganache & how it was made. I thought it would be too dark, intense, heavy. Yes, rich. Warm, it's smooth & easy. Cooler, cold, it's rich & thick. It's the same "strength" as chocolate chip cookies. :D I chopped 1 1/2c semisweet chocolate chips. Okay, almost 1 1/2cups. About 3T were milk chocolate. I cooled for about twenty minutes then spooned it over cheesecake topped brownies. Stayed shiny (beautiful) & had just a little bit of "give". Fabulous. Who knew? Not me. :)

Raspberry White Chocolate Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2015
Yummy yum yum yum! These are a little light in texture, more like cake. Good, for sure. I think of muffins as being a bit more dense is all. Regardless, thumbs up. :D I increased sugar to half cup; chopped the chips a bit, then added; added 1/2t vanilla; subbed w frozen blueberries. The half cup sugar was enough, but probably could drop to a third. If topping with the butter-sugar mixture, for sure drop to 1/3c. These are good cupcakes. Thanks,LandoLakes! :) You're going in my white/yellow cupcake folder! :D ... Day 2: Five stars on day one, three-four, day two. Warm & they're five stars. Once cooled, the white chocolate flavor wasn't as pronounced so its unique flavor went to ordinary. :(

Pork Lo Mein

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2015
'Think this recipe is okay, but I prefer a more flavors in this type food - especially the sauce. A good base & easily adjusted. I used regular soy, but reduced to 1/4c.

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2015
These aren't the prettiest muffins, but they taste good. I soaked the oats & wheat germ in the wet ingredients (to hide). I also used frozen berries. 'Don't know if either of those is responsible for it, but most of mine had a dimple. It's nice they don't scream "healthy" either. 'Glad I tried & I'll probably make again, but decrease sugar to 1/3 to 1/2c. :) Next day: Very moist tops. I'll add more oats & less sugar next time.

Sweet Blueberry Drop Biscuits - White Lily

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2015
'Might enjoy more with fresh berries. 'Thought 500 was too high so lowered to 475. 'Still think lower would be better. The outside browned before the inside was baked. 'Not too sweet. Berry amount was a little high, but rather have too many than not enough. I subbed butter flavor shortening, & used buttermilk. I'll try again sometime.

Alabama Blueberry Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2015
Sorry, but I think there is a problem with this recipe - ingredients, amounts, I don't know. It didn't turn out at all. I hope Dale corrects this. I'm always looking for blueberry recipes.

Crustless Cranberry Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2015
Mine turned out like the 13th photo. Pretty. It's a sugar-cookie-ish tasting cake with cranberries. It has a slightly crisp top, tender inside & not too much cake. Berry amount is perfect. Next time, there will be a next time, I'll use a bit less sugar. I only added 1/4t almond extract & no nuts. 'Baked in an 8x8, 35. Reviews show how creative you can be with this recipe. Bonus. I'll have to remember that. Thanks for the recipe, Jean! :)

Pizza Pocket Dough

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2015
This places somewhere between biscuit & refrigerated pizza dough. It did the job, but I'll probably try another recipe next time. Although, the kids liked them. 'Made buffalo chicken pockets. Asked boy if I should make them again & if I should roll the dough thinner. He said I should make them again & the dough was fine. Pretty thick, not much room for filling then. He liked with ranch on the side.

Unstuffed Cabbage Dinner

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2015
Easily adaptable recipe. I made some changes, but not so much that I feel my review isn't valid. I used 2c regular (cooked) rice, adding it for the last ten minutes. Increased cabbage to three or three plus cups (about 1/2#, 1/4 a medium head) since I only used half pound ground beef. I used a cup & a quarter beef broth (since I didn't need the additional liquid for the instant rice). Subbed an undrained can of rotel for the whatI'mthinkingis V8 (Yuck). I used half t each garlic powder & black pepper - being wary of the rotel's effect. Taste: I liked it better before the tomato addition. It's nearly medium heat with the half t black pepper & rotel. Hearty, pretty inexpensive meal. Adding more broth & vegetables & you'd have a really good soup, I think. :)
