Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
This was well enjoyed at my home! I doubled (approx) the wine, and added my own seasonings as well (garlic and rosemary on this first batch), and it was devoured. (I also used cream of M, cause it had it on hand.) Usually in our house, the pup gets to enjoy leftover chicken dishes (they don't reheat real well in the micro) but I tried to give him the last breast of this dish, and was not allowed! I'll def be making again.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2006
These are delish! I have tried several biscut recipes in the past, with lackluster results. These were super easy and SO good. One note - probably obvious, but I forgot so... - if you sub regular salted butter for the shortening, make sure you cut back on the salt, or your biscut will be salty. They'll still get gobbled up, but would be better with less salt. These will be featured at my house on a regular, I can guarentee that!

Scottish Shortbread IV

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
These are simple, easy tasty cookies. I was going to top them with some melted chocolate, or make some with sugar on top as others have suggested... but after the first batch came out of the oven, I liked them as is! I did add some vanila and salt as other suggested. Next time, I might make them smaller and/or thinner since I like them extra well done. Thanks for this great one!

Apricot Bars I

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
It is hard to stop at just one! I used almonds rather than walnuts, and baked it longer the first time (it just looked un-done). Next time I make these, I probably will grease the pan too, because they are hard to get out once they've cooled! I can't wait to share these little gems!

Maple Dill Carrots

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
I loved these. Simple, few ingredients which I had on hand. (I used dry dill, and it was great.) I also just boiled carrots till done, then drained and mixed in butter/sugar/dill mixture. Yum!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
So, It turns out that I just don't like scalloped potatos. I say that because I thought this recipe was kinda bla, but others at my table RAVED about it during the meal and in thank you notes afterwards. I used a mixture of cheeses (cheddar, montery jack, parm, and even a little cream cheese) - cooked it the day before (which was good, because the sauce bubbled over and made a giant mess) and simply reheated the next day. I woulld probably not make this again for me, but will have to the next time I have a dinner party!

Fruit Pizza I

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
This got me RAVE reviews at my Easter dinner. It looked stunning, and I was afraid it would be all looks and no substance - but I was wrong! I actually mixed the cream cheese with some whipped cream (i made fresh whipped cream) and still thought it was a little cream cheesey plain, but it was wonderful with the cookie and fruit topping. I will absolutly be making this showstopper again!

Vanilla Ice Cream V

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2007
Yum yum yum. I'm so happy I found this easy recipe. I made it b/c I had all the ingredients in my kitchen. It was so quick and easy I'm already enjoying my ice cream! I can't wait to play with this recipe. Thanks! (PS - converted to 8 servings for my 1.5 qt ice cream maker.)

Whole Wheat Refrigerator Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
These were amazing. I will say they had me a big nervous at first. The yeast proofed beautifully, dough came together perfectly... but after letting them sit in fridge overnight, they showed no signs of rising. So I let it sit in there overnight and all the next day - then I let the dough come to room temp, formed into rolls (some I rolled into balls and popped into buttered muffin tins, others I shaped into sandwich roll shape), let them rise a little, and baked. Perfectly light and great texture. I will say that next time I make (soon,I'm sure) I'll likely cut back on the sugar as they were too sweet for my tastes. I might also add some herbs to make them a little more savory. I used butter in place of the oil, and will likely continue to do this. Thanks for the great, easy recipe!

Cinnamon Pear Frozen Yogurt

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2008
I love it when something this simple is so tasty! I made this with three fresh peaches, pureed with a little vanilla, about half the sugar, and non fat yogurt. I'm already working on other variations in my head. In playing with recipes - I'd advise that you keep it "healthy" with fruit based recipes. IE - adding one whole banana and fresh vanilla beans is excellent. However, sweeter additions - I tried peanut butter cups - seem to clash with the tart/sour flavor of the yogurt.

Easy Vegan Whole Grain Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
Mmmm I am a fan! I didn't have rye flour, so used ww with a little buckwheat and flax mixed in. I also used almond milk instead of the soy. Then I mixed some frozen blueberries in and topped with real maple syrup. YUM. Update - made these with rye flour today and fresh blueberries. Forgot how good these are!!

Papa Drexler's Bavarian Pretzels

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
These are FANTASTIC. And easy to make. And addictive. And therefore, very dangerous! I have made lots of soft pretzel recipes, and this is my favorite yet. Simple, yet tasty. I also made the same recipe into 8 good sized pretzels. One tip - the recipe did not call for a greased pan, so I didn't add any butter or oil to the pan before baking. When I tried to take the hot pretzels off, they stuck. After taking a couple off minus the bottoms, I decided to let them cool ON the pan. this worked much better. I will be making these tasty things again.

Cheddar Pear Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
This was amazing. I made it with combination of two types of pears and some granny smith apples. Next time, I might even make it as a crumble/crisp because the crust was not even needed!

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
These were a huge hit at my office. I made them as directed with whipped cream cheese frosting (my fav) from this site. I don't even like red velvet normally, and even I enjoyed one of these. I'll be making them again.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

These are, quite simply, amazing. I'm glad I made them to give away, otherwise I'd eat them all myself!

Spicy Sweet Potato and Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
This was great. I actually forgot to add the oil and lemon and it was still wonderful - and rather healthy, since I used lite coconut milk. I just rough chopped the onions and ginger, scooped out the cooked potato, and pureed the whole finished product in my food processer. YUM.
