Copycat Panera® Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2014
I made this for supper a few nights ago and my family had varying opinions of the soup. My son thought he was in heaven with how cheesy it was. My husband liked it but thought it was too cheesy and I was somewhere in the middle, but I did really like it. If I make it again, I might decrease the cheese somewhat.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2014
I made this today and my family and I loved it! I followed the recipe exactly and it was SO good! (Next time, I'll try to mix it all in a bowl because it was hard getting the minced garlic out of the bag.)

Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2014
I really liked the recipe but I did change it up. I only used 3 cups of sugar instead of 4, added extra vanilla and used all butter since I didn't have shortening on hand. I made this with Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate cake and oh my goodness, it was SOOO incredibly good! (I know some people don't agree but I like to read reviews that say what they liked/disliked about the recipe, how they changed it and that helps me to make the changes I think would work the best for our tastes....just sayin!)

Banana-Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2013
I made this bread today and it was very good! I also added chocolate chips, substituted almond extract for vanilla because that's what I had on hand. I made it in a 9x13 pan for more of a snack cake. I made a topping for it too. My husband and I really liked it!

Simple Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
I made this for supper tonight and I thought it was very good! I also added 2 tsp of worchestershire sauce and some mustard. I think I found my go-to-recipe for sloppy joes!

Good Old Meat Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2012
I thought this was pretty good. I added some ingredients though: extra potatoes, carrots, peas, spices and red wine in place of some of the beef broth. I used stew beef because it's what I had on hand and I think ground beef or a more tender cut of meat would be better. I brushed the top of the crust with beaten egg,

Grandma's Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
This was very good soup! My husband and I made it together tonight as he has a bad cold and thought chicken soup would help his recovery. I totally agree! I thought it was different with the thickening agent so the broth wasn't so thin and it was good!

Upside Down Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2012
My son and I thought this was really good. I did make some changes to it though after reading other reviews. I used a can of pizza sauce instead of pasta sauce, a can of crescent rolls on the bottom and a can on the top, sliced mozz. cheese (because that's all I had on hand). I melted butter and brushed that on the top crescent roll crust, then sprinkled garlic powder on top and then sprinkled grated parm cheese on top of that. It was really good!

This was very good soup. I did add a can of tomato paste, worchestershire sauce, extra veggies and sauteed minced garlic with the veggies. So good on a chilly winter day!

Judy's Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
I made this for my family's New Year's celebration today and my family loved it! We've been making a version of this for years but everyone loved this recipe. My sisters said they were going to start making this recipe instead of the one they've been using.

Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2011
This was very good! My son and I really enjoyed it. The only thing I did differently was to add steak sauce instead of ketchup and low sodium soup to make it healthier. I also used leftover veggies and mashed potatoes from Sunday dinner so it went together really fast, great for a busy weeknight supper!

Busy Day Barbeque Brisket

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2011
I made this once before and received rave reviews from my husband (not my son, but he doesn't care for spicy things) and just made it again this week and it was delicious! My husband said it is the best brisket he's ever had, including what he's had at restaurants. He bragged to the guys at work about it. He told me to "please don't ever lose that recipe"!

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
I made this for supper tonight and my son and I thought it was a great recipe. I did like the others suggested and sauteed the garlic with the lemon juice, parsley and butter then poured it over the fish before baking it. I did not bake it for 30 minutes, only 15-20 minutes with sprinkling parm cheese over it for the last 5 minutes or so. Very good!!

Easier Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
I had ALOT of fresh mushrooms that I wanted to use and was looking for a good recipe to do this. I made this for supper last night and it was SO delicious! My husband and son loved it! We agreed that it really did taste like something you'd eat in a restaurant, for a fraction of the cost. I doubled the recipe for leftovers, I pounded the chicken breasts thin, added minced garlic instead of garlic salt, doubled the mushrooms and tripled the marsala wine with a cup of chicken broth to have enough gravy for the noodles. I was afraid that it wouldn't thicken so I did add some corn starch. Also added dried parsley. I sauteed the mushrooms separately with minced garlic and olive oil and simmered it all together with the broth/wine liquid for about 30-40 minutes. We LOVED it!

Homemade Crispy Seasoned French Fries

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
I made these for lunch today and my husband and I did not care for them. I tasted one right after it came out of the skillet and it tasted good but the longer they sat on the plate, they got soggy. I won't be making these again.

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
I made this for brunch today for my husband, son and my mom and I. I made enough for 16 servings and by the time I got all of them fed there was just enough batter to make 1 piece for myself! I think I'll make this one again!
