Leftover Chicken Croquettes

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2012
We liked this recipe, and will definitely make it again when I have a quantity of leftover chicken. I read quite a few of the reviews and used some of the suggestions.....such as putting chicken in cuisinart, along with some leftover potatoes and some walnuts (for a needed crunch). I used 3 eggs and glad I did. I also sauteed the onions, green pepper, and garlic and added to chicken mixture. I used 2 cups of chicken and it made 6 good sized patties. Baked them on a sprayed pan for 30 min at 350, turning once. I topped with a homemade white sauce, however next time I'll try some whole cranberry sauce. These are hardy and tasty. They can easily be tweaked to your own taste. Give it a try!

Grandma's Peach French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
This was really good! The only thing I would change would be to double up on the peaches and use half the brown sugar, adding some of the juice from the peaches as the other part of the sweetner. I served this on Christmas morning and it was a hit!

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
This is a fantasic hearty soup!! It sort of reminded me of a minestrone soup. I doubled the recipe to make sure I had enough for a family get-together. Made a few changes...I used fresh made hot italian sausage, in lieu of all beef broth I used 1/3 beef broth, 1/3 my homemade saltfree chicken stock, and 1/3 my homemade saltfree tomato juice (obviously I watch the salt intake!), omitted the zuchinni, added 1 c. pipette pasta, added 1 can pinto beans & 1 can of red beans (rinsed both before adding). Don't be afraid to add more water, broth, or tomato juice because the pasta definitely uses it up. I think the next time I make this I will add some chopped swiss chard or some of those flat italian green beans cut in 1" pieces. I served it with a crusty italian bread. This soup was definitely a hit! Easy to make and easy to tweek!

Perfect Berry Shortcakes

Reviewed: May 22, 2012
Yum!! I followed the recipe except didn't have half & half, so used 1% milk and it was fine. I also sprayed the baking pan with a small amount of non-stick spray. Instead of cutting them in half, we just crumbled it. Easy and tasty!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
Easy and tasty!! I followed recipe, except used 1/2 c. plain yogurt instead of sour cream. Mashed bananas rather than slice them in to recipe. Otherwise did as stated. Really good!

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2012
We really liked this! Easy to fix. I pretty much followed the recipe except used up 3 chicken breasts I had (sliced them in to small pieces before cooking in olive oil (no butter used). Also sliced up a portabello mushroom to add in to mix. Seemed like I needed more liquid so I added about a cup of low-sodium V8 juice. Next time I'd probably add some chicken stock too. Covered this and simmered for about 45 minutes. When done, I added 1-2 Tbsp of sour cream. Served over brown rice. Spicy, tasty, and easy!!!

Apple Sheet Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
My husband really liked this, but I wasn't so thrilled with it. Too much crust for me. I used Jonathan apples, but 30 minutes of cooking didn't cook them down enough to my liking. Not sure what other apple to use, but one that cooks down quickly would be my preference. I added chopped cranberries which made a nice color and tartness to apple mixture. I baked it in a 9x13 baking pan. I will definitly make this again, but will tweek what I didn't care for and think it will be as tasty as my hubby (and his finicky brother) thought it was.

Bread Pudding I

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2014
Oh my gosh, this is so good! I always read a bunch of reviews to see what the consensus is on "tweeking" recipe, and this was no exception. I used baguette bread (after cutting up let it sit for the morning to dry out a bit). Left out raisins (we don't care for them). Used 1/2 tsp cinnamon & 1/4 tsp of nutmeg, 5 instead of 6 eggs, used 1/2 c. brown sugar (I was out of white), and only 1/4 tsp of salt. Baked it in a 2 qt baking dish set in a larger water filled baking dish. That's how my Mom used to do it. Baked for 45 minutes. Topped with an easy-to-make butter sauce: Place in small sauce pan the following: 6 T. butter (melted), 1/2 c. brown sugar, 1/4 c. milk (I used 2%....cream would be yummy!) and 3/4 tsp vanilla. Whisk till heated up and slightly thickened. Pour over bread pudding. Yum....what else can I say!?

English Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2014
So happy to report that these turned out delicious! After reading a bunch of reviews I did make a few adjustments. Used honey in place of the sugar, butter in place of the shortening, added about 2 Tbl of ground flax seed, and used only about 4 1/2 cups of flour (6 would have been way too much!) I baked them on a cornmeal sprinkled (don't skimp on the cornmeal) baking sheet at 375 for 8 minutes per side. After they were done in the oven I finished them on the stove top in a warm cast iron skillet (no grease/oil) for 2-3 minutes per side. That final step gives the muffin the "finished" look of an English Muffin. Don't skip that last step. I fork split several muffins and toasted them up once cooled. Plenty of nooks/crannies and oh so yummy! No more store bought for us!

Ooey-Gooey Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2014
Made these today. They are so yummy! My hubby loved them. I watched the video first, which was helpful, then followed written directions exactly but had to use about half walnuts as well as pecans since I didn't have enough pecans. Still turned out really good. 25 minutes was a tad too long. Next time (and there will definitely be a next time!) I will probably pull out at about 22-23 minutes.

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2014
Excellent recipe! The only thing I did different was to use 1/2 of the sugar called for in recipe (a personal preference for less sweet cornbread). A yummy pan of cornbread!

Pesto

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2013
Really good! Since I didn't have pine nuts I roasted walnuts. Also added juice of 1/2 lemon, a dash of salt, and used maybe about 2 Tbl additional olive oil. Once in the freezer containers, I drizzled with a little more olive oil (as suggested in some other reviews). My basil is just beginning to go crazy in the garden so I will definitely be making several more batches of this. Can't go wrong with this easy and extremely tasty recipe!

Apple Cake and Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2012
We really liked this cake! I followed the recipe, except added about 1/2 c. of freshly made applesauce (my neighbor gave me a bucket of apples.....I had lots of apples to use up!). Also used a 9" square glass baking dish (lightly sprayed) and baked for 40 minutes instead of the 50 mentioned in recipe. It was moist and ohh so tasty! Didn't do the butter topping. Didn't need it. It was great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! Give this one a try. You won't be disappointed!
