Best Chicken Ever

Reviewed: May 24, 2000
I'll never use flour or bisquick for coating chicken again! I was a little disapointed that it wasn't as crispy as I expected, but I used a cut-up fryer instead of breasts and left the skin on. I only needed about one cup of sour cream. Great Chicken!

Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: May 15, 2002
A wonderful recipe. I used cream of celery soup because a friend was allergic to mushrooms and it turned out even better. I have also added cooked chicken to the recipe and it made a terrific one-dish meal.

Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
This turned out very well. I did sub 1 cup brown sugar, cover with foil after 50 min to prevent overbrowning., and add a splash of vanilla. It froze beautifully. **Update** Just made this again and took a loaf (frozen, then thawed) to work. Comments from my co-workers emails to me included: "The pumpking bread is DIVINE!" (She asked for the recipe.) "Your pumpkin bread is amazing!" and my favorite, "That is the tastiest bread-substance I have ever had. And I am not prone to culinary hyperbole. Thank you!" So yeah...this is an awesome recipe! This time around the only thing I did differently, besides subbing 1 cup of brown sugar and covering it after 50 minutes, was pureeing my own pumpkins. Thanks again for this terrific recipe!

Shortbread Cookies II

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2004
This was excellent. I'd made similar cookies before, but these are the best. I only used 1 1/2 tsp. of vanilla and it was plenty. Next time, I'll buy almond extract. I also rolled them in balls and flattened them with a glass dipped in sugar. Turned out great.

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2005
Very good! I did this in the crock pot and cooked on for several hours. I left the lid off for the last hour trying to thicken it up. I had tried just pureeing one can of beans like everyone said, but still thought it was too soupy. We like more solids than broth. I ended up putting in a fouth can of beans to make it thick enough to suit. I also left out the jap's entirely and it's mild enough for even our light-weight pallets. Will definately make this again.

Chicken and Corn Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2005
This was very good. I used black beans since I didn't have pinto and served it with crunched tortilla chips. It was very flavorful and not too hot for our mild-mannered pallets. 11/12/13 - Since my original revew, this has become one of my most-cooked recipes. I simply toss frozen chicken breasts in the crockpot, cover with the salsa and spices and shred it when I get home before adding the beans (2 cans of black beans) and corn. It's great with tortilla chips, instead of crackers, and I've used the left overs in tortilla casseroles. If you want it spicier, just use hotter salsa - we use mild to medium. Really a great recipe.

Impossibly Easy Chicken Pot Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2005
I've made this for years. You can't go wrong with the "impossibly easy" pies. I use reduced fat bisquick and fat free soups in mine and it fits in the strictest diet. Always easy and always good.

Scarlett's Best Ever Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2005
These are not sugar cookies. They are Pecan Sandies and they are fabulous! I was suprized at how easy they were and how delicious! But mine didn't make 100, only about 85...and they weren't overly large. Still, I will definately make these again and again!

Honey Ginger Grilled Salmon

I didn't even have any orange juice and this was good. Can't imagine how good it would be if I followed the recipe!

Sausage Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
I should preface this by saying, I really love sausage, but I really like these. They made about 40 balls of about 1 heaping tablespoon each. I used regular sausage and a medium cheddar. I can see how spicy or italian sausage and sharp cheese would be even better. I added just a tiny bit of cayanne pepper and garlic powder and I baked at 325 for 25 minutes. They were actually kind of crispy on the outside and yummy all the way through.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2005
I wanted to do a second review, but the site won't let me. My first review follows this one. I tried making this exactly as written, except I used 1 1/4 lbs of beef and upped the flour to 1/3 cup because I like a thick broth. But I doubled the veggies and one can of beef broth (about 1 3/4 cups) didn't make enough liquid after it had cooked. So I added another can of broth and doubled the salt and pepper too. (Also added a small drained can of peas and mushrooms but that doesn't really change the taste.) It is a very good recipe as written! A basic and plain beef stew, but quite good. I'm leaving my five star rating firmly in place. (old review) I don't normally review by telling how I changed a recipe, but I did this one quite a bit. I added two cans diced tomatoes and used frozen stew veggies instead of fresh. It was very good and I'm sure it would be delish as-is, but I needed a bigger pot of stew than I was getting with the recipe so I did the tomatoes and frozen veggies to "stretch" it.

Crunchy Caramel Apple Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2002
A very good recipe. I use somewhat more than pecans and caramel than called for. I made it for Thanksgiving and it was such a hit my Father-in-Law requested it for Christmas. Wonderful with Vanilla Ice Cream!

Alice Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2005
I did this a little differently so I could throw it together fast for a dinner party. I marinated the chicken then grilled in the Foreman grill a day in advance. I also sauted the mushrooms in advance. Then the day of the dinner, I just put the chicken, honey mustard, pre-cooked bacon, mushrooms and warmed in the oven for a short time, then covered with colby-jack cheese and popped under the broiler when company arrived. Everyone raved about it. Absolutly delicious. I will definately make this again!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
Excellent! I'm new to bread baking, but I won't be for long with this recipe. I cut the sugar in half based upon the reviews but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I didn't have bread flour, just all-purpose, so I added some essential wheat gluten I bought a while back, when my first few attempts at baking bread failed. I made half into dinner rolls and the other into a loaf. It rose very quickly. So much I had to put it in the fridge to keep it until dinner was ready so I could have hot rolls. Even so, I had to punch the loaf down a second time and let it re-raise since I didn't have room in the oven. The next day I cut in in half, and made it with the suger called for, making it into cinnamon rolls. They were delicious! I'll be making this bread again and again! Just wonderful!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
These are great cookies. Like other's, I used 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar. I found caramel chips, intended for melting for caramel apples, but used them in place of chocolate chips and they were yummy! I think they'd be great with any type chips, or none at all. The next day they are still chewy and good in my cookie jar. I did have to let them sit on the cookie sheets to cool quite a while, but that could be the caramel. This cookie is a keeper!

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
This is a great cake, but the oil! I use 1/2 oil and 1/2 applesauce and it comes out fine, while cutting back the fat a bit.

Sausage and Bow-Tie Pasta Florentine

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2009
I really liked this, but the proportions seemed really off. If it's four servings, they must be HUGE. I cut it back to 1/2 lb sausage and 8 oz of pasta and 7 oz of spinach. I kept the 16 oz jar of alfredo, because I love having lots of sauce. It still made four big servings. As written, you'd get at least six. I used turkey sausage and lite alfredo for dietary reasons, and it was really good! I think fresh spinach would be outstanding in this.
