Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
AMAZING!! Here are my changes: I took others advice and used stew meat instead, cut into smaller pieces. I used 3 cans of beef broth and 1 can of vegetable broth. 2 beef boullion cubes, 1/4 cup of worcestershire sauce and I replaced the salt with seasoned salt. I cooked on high for 4 hours and low for 4 hours. When I turned the heat down, I added 1/2 bag of simply potatoes. Added Barley last hour. YUMMY!!!!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
I was really excited about this....but I think this would make a better marinade for grilling chicken breasts. I found my chicken just tasted like boring ole chicken in the center, no flavor whatsoever once you got past the outside.

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
TASTY! This is what I consider Salisbury Steak, and I have finally found a good recipe! It says to roll into 8 balls and mash, I was only able to make four patties that were about the same size as the one pictured. I used extra lean ground beef (accidently) and there was barely any gravy...which was disappointing because I made mashed potatoes! Even still, I just can't imagine the gravy going very far so I recommend making a packing gravy (onion or beef) and adding it to what is already there. Other than that, no complaints!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
These are amazing! My new go to recipe for chocolate chip cookies. Although, the recipes calls for UNsalted butter and I used salted as that it what I had on hand. I will definetly use unsalted next time. I think I will try adding some walnuts too.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
This banana bread was so moist and delicious. This is officially my go to recipe for banana bread. I did add 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg. Another user suggested a crumbly topping, which I tried, but thought it made the bread wayyyyyy too sweet. I ended up cutting the top off and just enjoying the slice without it. It's so perfect as is, it really doesn't need it. Enjoy!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
I made quite a few changes, and it turned out amazing. For starters, added 1/2 cup of frozen corn to the veggies and cooked them (and chicken) in water with three tablespoons of chicken bouillon granules. While that was going, I moved onto the next step, but added 1/4 tsp of minced garlic to butter. Also, added 1/4 tsp of poultry seasoning to flour mixture. When all was mixed together, I added 1/2 can of cream of chicken soup and 1/2 can of cream of celery soup. It still seemed to lack something so I added chicken bouillon granules to taste. PERECT!! Someone mentioned adding potatoes and liked that idea, so I microwaved a bag of Simply Potatoes (may not be available in all areas) until just soft. With all my additions, I now had enough for two pot pies! So, for the bottom of the pie I used frozen pie shells. Use half of the chicken/veggies and half of the sauce for each pie. When it came to the top, I used the Pillsbury roll out pie crust. It's easier and looks pretty! Brush some butter on top of the crust and put 'em in the oven until golden brown. About the same time as original recipe states. Yummy...I imperssed myself with this one!

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
I love this recipe....maybe it's the fact that I have not had French Toast in forever, but whatever the reason, this recipe my expectations. Must use Texas Toast.

Chicken Enchilada Soup III

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
Ok, so I can see how some people thought this was bland, as I did at first, but I was determined to make it great. So, here is what I changed to make it what I condsider a five star recipe. First off, I read what others said about the soup being too thick with the full amount of masa suggested-so I prepared as noted, but only added a little at a time until I got just the right consistency. (Which turned out to be about half) I took suggestions on adding 1 can of corn and 1 can of black beans-both drained. I also added 1 small can of diced green chilis.I used one cup of shredded chedder and one cup of velveeta. (a litte more of either cheese would not hurt)I did NOT use any salt, but instead kept adding chicken boullion granules until I reached my desired flavor...and alas, it is DELICIOUS!! NOTE~I went to 3 stores in search of something that simplt stated "Masa Harina" just as the recipe calls, however, I found nothing that had both of those two words cleary printed on the package. I called a gentleman that I work with that is hispanic and he said what I needed was something called Maseca (that is the brand) and it is an instant corn masa mix. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much I my husband I and do...it seems to get better the longer it sits!

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

I normally don't care for stroganoff dishes, but this one is DELICIOUS! Not sure if the cream cheese instead of traditional sour cream, but it's very good. Easy, too.

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

This is one of my favorites. I make it whenever I need to impress my guests with dinner and boy does it work! I serve in fried corn tortillas (Taco Style) but would love to try them in enchiladas. Yum, yum, yum!

Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
This was great! Hubby liked it too. As other users stated, it IS sweet. I think next time I will cut back a bit on the brown sugar. I did not have 8-10 hours cook time so I cooked on high for 3 and low for the last 2 and it turned out perfect. EASY!!

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
This soup was amazing!! Nice and hearty and perfect for a cold Winter day. I prefer more rice, so I would recommend using two boxes of rice (one seasoning packet) but I did not know that ahead of time so I used some white rice that I had on hand it was good that way too. Hubby loved it. I took it to work to share with my co-workers the next day and rave reviews there as well. Altough, soup gets REALLY thick the next day so prepare to doctor it up before you serve.

Mexican Lasagna II

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2007
I was a little weery of this recipe as I thought it was going to be too basic, but I tried it as it seemed quick and easy....and it was GREAT! I did not add the green onions or tomatoes on top (personal preference) but I did add some minced onions to the ground beef while it was cooking. This recipe can be altered easily to individuals tastes and it won't cost $100 to go buy all the ingriedents!

Cheddar Chicken Spaghetti

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2007
I found this recipe to be okay, with the potential to be great. It lacks flavor (and I even used tri colored bell peppers in lieu of pimentos) and it is a little on the dry side. I will try making this again but I will have to think about what to add to really bring out some flavor.

Cola Pot Roast II

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2007
I loved this recipe!! I am a "little of this, little of that" kind of cook so of course, I added my own touch. First, I read what others had to say and some mentioned a lack of flavor. So, I used beefy onion soup instead and also added 1/2 can of beef broth. I wanted more of a traditional pot roast so I added diced potatoes and one can of corn I also cooked this all day in a crock pot for 7-8 hours; the first two hours were on high and then I put the setting on low until the meat fell apart. (With the cook time being so long I receommned adding the potatoes half way though and the corn during the last hour)You may need to double the recipe if you add potatoes like I did. Enjoy!

Peppermint Brittle

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2005
This was great!! A new addition to my hoilday treats. Very easy but does not make a lot so if you are planning on making this for a large group you may want to double up. I also made a seperate batch and added toasted almonds in lieu of peppermint and that was just as good if not better. I highly recommned this recipe to anyone who enjoys sweets.
