Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2013
Great soup. I can't think of anything that really needs to be changed. My preference might be for a slightly thicker soup when warm, but it was still a good consistency.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2013
Very tasty salad. Not overdone with too many ingredients. Great way to let those strawberries shine when in season.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2013
This was a big hit with everyone. The only thing I may try different next time is see if the sauce will cook down to more of a glaze before adding it to the broccoli.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2013
This turned out great. I even had to substitute one can of cream of chicken soup because I only had one cream of mushroom, you couldn't notice once it was all done. I did 4 hours on high and it turned out perfect...and that was with 6 pounds of meat. I thickened the gravy with cornstarch/water, but that was only because I like mine thick.

French Silk Chocolate Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2013
This turned out fantastic. We doubled the recipe to fit into a deep dish pie crust (about 2 inches). We made it following the instructions exactly and it fit into the pie crust perfectly. I would highly recommend letting this set in the fridge overnight. Make sure to wait 5 minutes in between eggs, we had to be extra patient waiting 20 minutes. As far as the raw eggs, I'm not an expert, but as far as I understand it, Salmonella is extremely rare these days and even if a batch of eggs is infected it is quickly pulled from the shelves once anything is reported. As long as you don't fit into one of the at risk categories you have very little to worry about. For example, we didn't allow our 1 or 3 year old to have any of the pie. Thats just my two cents, do your own research.

Greek Pasta Salad I

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
We skipped the pepperoni in here. It was a great pasta salad. The mushrooms are a nice addition.

Honey Wheat Bread I

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2013
This bread is fantastic! I'm a white bread guy in general, but this blows away most store bought wheat breads. So soft and airy, but still has great structure. We had different plans for it, but couldn't stop eating it with just honey butter. I used the bread maker on the "dough" setting until the wheat flour was mixed in, then reset it, added the bread flour and let the "dough" setting complete. Then it's as simple as punching it down,cutting in half and putting in two loaf pans for the final rise. This will likely become a staple in our home.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2013
This was a nice alternative to the traditional lasagna. It lacked a little in "body" due to no ricotta/cottage cheese, but we didn't really miss it. The great thing about this recipe is that none of the ingredients spoil quickly, so you can buy everything and wait until it's the most convenient to make it. Couldn't really come up with anything that needs to change in the recipe, hence the 5 stars!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2013
This is a fantastic recipe. Nothing too special, there are probably a lot of similar recipes out there, but I don't feel the need to try others. We made this with the "Butter Flaky Pie Crust" recipe for the crusts and it turned out perfect!

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2013
A very good banana bread. The sour cream is a nice change, otherwise a basic, but tasty banana bread!

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2013
For a change, we made this cake for a birthday instead of buying the normal ice cream cake from a popular chain store, and lets just say, we weren't disappointed. We made this along with the "Creamy Chocolate Frosting" recipe and together the cake was amazing. The coffee enhances the chocolate flavors and the cake is perfectly spongy/moist. Even 48 hours later there was no change in how moist the cake was.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2013
This was a great soup. Our amounts varied slightly because we had a bunch of leftover ham and slightly less potatoes. I accidentally left the burner on while we ate and the soup cooked an additional 10 minutes (after adding the milk mixture), I found it to be at the perfect thickness at this point. We will see if it's too thick tomorrow, but if you like it thicker just let it cook for about 10 minutes instead of just heating through.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2013
I don't know if I can call it "World's Best", but it is a very good lasagna. We only use about half the meat sauce. We freeze the rest to have with pasta for another meal.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2013
Turned out good, wasn't bland like some quinoa recipes can be. Nice side dish for anything with southwestern/mexican flavors.

Blue Cheese Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2013
Good burgers! Doesn't go overboard with ingredients, the blue cheese works much better mixed into the patty than put on top.

Light Wheat Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2013
These turned out a very nice looking, light, airy roll. We all liked them. Pretty easy process. I just let the bread machine do the kneading and first rise and the rest was a peice of cake, just need the time. Although I'm not the biggest wheat bread fan I can't hold that against a good roll when I have one.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2013
These turned out very good! A couple notes to help with the process that I had to figure out myself. After realizing the dough was pretty wet/tough to deal with, I just started scooping heaping tablespoons of the dough, dropping it into the sugar and moving the bowl around to coat it, once they are sugar coated they are much easier to move to the baking sheet. I did the cookies in two batches, the first batch I took out at about 9 minutes, thinking they were done and they deflated/flattened out a bit when cooling. The next batch I baked for a solid 10 minutes, making sure they were slightly browned and they turned out incredibly soft/airy and held their shape...perfect!

Kickin' Collard Greens

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2013
This was my first time having collard greens. For a side dish that stars a green, leafy vegetable, this turned out quite good. I could come up with other side dishes that I would prefer, but everyone needs greens in their diet and I would rather have this than some boring salad that offers little nutritional value.
