Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2001
These cookies were really delicious. We wanted to use cookie cutters so we followed another reviewer's advice by adding 1/4 cup more flour. The dough was still too sticky when I rolled it so I just added more flour as I went. The cookies turned out a little hard, so either the 8 minutes is too long or the 375 is too hot, but once I adjusted it, they turned out fine. The cookies are a little bland, which is great if you add a frosting on top. Overall very good recipe and my 5 year old loved them!

Sour Cream Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2001
Excellent recipe. Easily feeds a family of four. I've made this close to twenty times since I first saw the recipe last year. It takes almost no time to prepare and is very easy to make. I've made it with chicken, and with turkey, and both were excellent. It's a GREAT use for leftover Thanksgiving turkey. While not the prettiest dish to serve, it certainly makes up for it in taste. I highly recommend this to everyone.

Crispy Coconut Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2002
This recipe was pretty easy to make and was good, but not what I was looking for. I was trying to find a recipe similar to TGIFriday's, and this was not it, but close. The batter for the coconut to stick to the chicken was just not right. The chicken came out very tender though, and overall our family did enjoy it, and we have some picky eaters.

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2003
Fantastic! I made this recipe for my husband's birthday party. I doubled the recipe and thought that I would have leftovers for the next day's lunch, but boy was I wrong! These went so fast, and I received compliment after compliment. I don't even particularly like meatballs, and I thought these were delicious. I read the reviews on the recipe, but I didn't change any of the ingredients. They were also incredibly easy to make. I will make these at least twice a month now.

Baked Potato Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2003
This soup was very good, similar to the baked potato soup that they serve at Outback Steakhouse. I needed to add a little more seasoning to it than suggested, but that's just a matter of taste. I have a ton of leftovers, but will make this again.

Apricot Chicken I

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2003
This is very similar to my mother's recipe. The only thing different is that we use chicken drummettes (small drumsticks). We buy about 4 packages, lay them top to end in a 9 x 13 pan, and bake the heck out of them until they are almost candied. (Usually an hour, turn them over, and then another hour). They are so good this way and irresistable to little kids. I've also used Russian or Catalina dressing, both come out great that way. I prefer to use apricot jam over preserves. If for some reason yours comes out too runny, which happened to another reviewer, than either you used too much dressing (I normally use 2 regular sizes bottles of dressing), or have not cooked it long enough.

Chicken Slop

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2004
This recipe was so so. It lacks the extra ingredients of the spectacular Sour Cream Cheese Casserole from this site. I suggest skipping this and trying that.

Apricot Cream Cheese Thumbprints

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2004
Awesome cookies! We pretty much followed the recipe, but made two changes. We left out the lemon zest (personal preference), and we followed other reviewer's advice by rolling the dough in powdered sugar before baking. We used raspberry, boysenberry and apricot jam, and we also put chocolate chips in the middle - minus the jam, and all were wonderful. And when they say it makes 7 dozen cookies, they are NOT kidding. Great recipe...thanks Mellan!

Easy Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2004
I pretty much agree with other reviews about this recipe and I took a lot of their advice. Here is what I did: I used 2 1/2 cups milk + 1 cup water, one can of chicken w/herbs soup plus one can cream of mushroom, 2 1/2 cups of rice and a teaspoon of table salt. I only had 4 large chicken breasts in the freezer, but it was more than enough for this dish. I put it in a 350 oven for about 1/2 an hour, checked to see how the chicken was cooking, stirred it, put it back in for 15 minutes, checked to make sure the chicken was cooked through, and then put sharp cheddar cheese on top and cooked another 15 minutes uncovered. The only thing I will change next time is I will add more milk, as it came out a tad too dry. The chicken was soft, tender and this dish was easy to prepare...plus there are so many ways to change it up a bit!

Sour Cream Coffee Cake III

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2004
Excellent! Tastes just like NY coffee cake! I'll only change one thing - I'll double the amount of topping - there just wasn't enough!

Baked Chicken and Stuffing

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2004
This was very good - my husband had seconds. I followed other reviewers advice and used 2 cans of cream of chicken. I also added some water to the stuffing/broth mixture because I thought it would be too dry, and it was. Next time I'll use twice the amount of liquid it calls for. I didn't boil the chicken first, I just put it in the pan. I baked for 45 minutes at 350, and it came out beautifully.

Fast and Easy Hamburger Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2005
This was a good recipe. Very easy to prepare, and done in no time. My husband and I both had seconds, but as my husband put it, this is a once a month meal, not a once a week keeper. I followed the directions exactly, with no changes. My only complaints are that there was not enough meat mixture to biscuits, so when I make this recipe next time, I'll double the meat mixture and leave the biscuits to one can. Also, the recipe says it yields 4 servings, and I think that's a bit of a stretch. This was just enough for my husband and I (except for the six biscuits left over).

Cordon Bleu Chicken Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2005
Updated review: I made this recipe again tonight. This time I used a combination of crushed corn flakes and italian bread crumbs. I again used munster cheese instead of swiss. I decided to try the gravy and it was good, but I don't think it's necessary as the chicken tastes great alone. Original review: My husband says this is the best new recipe that I've ever made, and he's hard to please. I did things slightly different for personal preferences. First of all, I used Italian bread crumbs instead of Corn Flake crumbs because that's all I had in the house. I used munster cheese instead of swiss becuase neither of us like Swiss. And I didn't make the gravy, because my husband isn't a gravy person. These were so simple to make, took little time and turned out wonderfully. The first time I made this it came out too dry, so I adjusted my cooking temperature the next time to 350, for 30 minutes, and it worked fine. I will definately make this again!

Layered Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2005
This was pretty good but I felt it needed a little tweaking, which is why I gave it only three stars. The whole thing was a bit dry and think it's because there wasn't enough of the cheese/sour cream mixture for the noodles. Next time I will double the cheese part of the recipe or not use a full pound of noodles.

Twice Baked Potatoes II

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2005
These were very good, and my first attempt at twice baked potatoes. I put the potatoes in the microwave for a minute each to cut down on the baking time (it cuts it almost in half, and they still come out great in the oven). I also sprinked the outside of the potatoes with water and then rolled them in salt so the skin would come out crispy in the oven. I didn't use the American cheese, instead I used more shredded cheddar. Everyone asked for seconds!

Chicken Angelo

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2006
While this dish was pretty good, my husband and I both thought something in the taste was just not quite right. I think next time I will either dillute the soup a bit to make the taste less powerful, or perhaps use a little soup as a gravy instead of using a whole can. I will try this recipe again.

Quick and Easy Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2006
This is quite a different dish from your everyday chicken. When my husband first tried it he said it was "weird but good" Then he asked for seconds and when I asked if I should make this again he said "yes". This dish was very easy to make. I followed other reviewer's comments and doubled the sauce, but I was out of lemon juice so I used orange juice, and it worked fine. I used chicken breast tenders.

Chicken Cordon Bleu I

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
This was really good. My husband has now declared this his favorite meal. I used muenster cheese because we do not care for swiss. I had to adjust the cooking time slightly, as my oven tends to run very hot. I suggest using colored toothpicks, or toothpicks with ribbon on the end because once the chicken was cooked I lost a couple of them (much to the surprise of whoever was eating the chicken). Overall, this was a very easy recipe and I'll definately make it again!
