Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
I made these on a whim and OH MY GOSH! I have people asking me for both the recipe and more muffins every time. My fiance LOVES these. One note: Make sure to put a legitimate crater inside the center of the muffin for the cream cheese--didn't do it one time and the muffins were significantly altered.

Cheddar Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2013
These are so good! Just like Red Lobster's. I took Mckdevin's advice and used a 2c flour, 1 T baking powder and 1 t salt substitute for the Bisquick. Despite my greasing a cookie sheet, these still stuck to it, so I'll hopefully remember to use parchment paper next time. Very tasty---nice surprise for the husband, who loves Red Lobster's cheddar biscuits. :) Thanks for the recipe!

Nana's Zucchini Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2013
Very tasty. However, it was a bit runny. Next time, I'll reduce the half-and-half to 1/2 C, not 3/4 C. (Actually I used milk, and the taste was excellent.) I think that'll solve the problem perfectly. I also shredded the zucchini, since it was a lot faster to do than slicing it. Another change for next time: 2 med zucchinis instead of the 3 used. I added steamed broccoli and spinach, which added some lovely green to the quiche. Yum!

Chicken Marsala Florentine

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2013
Very tasty. I think sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil would have been better than the vac-pack ones I bought (cheaper). They seemed a bit dry and tough, although I did keep them in the simmering Marsala wine for the required ten minutes. Sautéing the mushrooms in the same pan with some of the chicken bits stuck to the bottom was so delicious, and they cooked like three times as fast. I think next time in order to really bring out all the flavors, I will add the pasta and chicken to the vegetables and wine three minutes before serving. The pasta seemed a bit bland to me. Also, I think I'll add 1 and 1/2 C Marsala. We can't get enough of it! Great recipe---thanks.

Oven Fried Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
This was delicious. I pounded out the chicken breasts and baked them at 375 for about 40 minutes. I forgot the parsley, salt, and pepper (oops), but it hardly made a difference because I used Italian seasoning breadcrumbs. I lightly brushed the breasts with melted butter and then put the garlic right in with the breadcrumb mixture. No problem there. :) Great recipe! Thank you.

Potato and Shiitake Mushroom Gratin

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2012
This was delish! My husband and I both went back for seconds. A few changes: I scaled the recipe to four servings. I didn't have rosemary and thyme, per se, so I added about 2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning: rosemary, thyme, sage, marjoram, oregano, and savory. That was a good decision. I read that some cooks were having difficulties getting this to cook through in an hour and a half. Well. I cut my potatoes very thin, like some were translucent kind of thin. If some slices were thicker, I arranged them on the edges of the pan since they'll get baked more there. I also used a very shallow and wide casserole pan, which let it bake through in 1 hr 15 mins. I used 1 C heavy cream and 1/3 C milk, (my hubs and I are young and reasonably thin, still ;) ). I added three cloves of garlic. Great decision! We really, really enjoyed this--and we'll be making it again. :) Oh, and one comment: this doesn't have great eye-appeal, but it's delectable just the same!

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2014
Oh dear me. This was phenomenal and I found it quite difficult to stop eating. I halved the recipe, and since I didn't have any pepper, omitted it. I also added two chopped hard-boiled eggs, because that's the way my mom always made macaroni salad, and---what can I say?---I love it that way. Very, very good!

Golden Egg Loaves (or Braids)

Reviewed: May 1, 2014
I was seriously salivating when I smelled this baking in the oven. This is a fantastic, versatile bread! I didn't have any wheat gluten, so I simply had to do without. I also ran out of honey after about 4 T, so I left as-is, and the bread was divine. If you're like me and don't have a stand mixer with a dough hook, don't fret. I mixed all this up very successfully with a hand mixer and then kneaded on a lightly floured surface. What the directions don't tell you is to remove the bread from the pans immediately after baking. I learned from another bread recipe that allowing the bread to sit in the pans can likely form mold on the bottom of the loaf down the road. Allow the bread to cool completely on a wire rack, and then bag it up. I kept one loaf out and froze the other. I can't wait to have a grilled cheese with this bread! Great recipe!!

Double Coco Double Chocolate Chip Cookies (a twist on Toll House® cookies)

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2013
Very tasty! Perfect for Christmas with holiday red and green chocolate chips. I may, next time, (because there will be a next time), try using 1 C butter instead of 1/2 C butter and 1/2 C shortening. Either way, we really enjoy these beautiful chocolatey cookies. Thanks for the recipe!

Chicken and Broccoli Braid

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2013
I made a number of changes: 1) Didn't use a pepper, garlic, almonds, dill weed, or mayo. 2) I added ranch dressing instead of mayo. 3) Used colby-cheddar cheese instead of cheddar. 4) Steamed the broccoli. It was like a casserole in a crescent roll wrap. Yum! My family loved it. We ate every last bite!

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2013
I used 7 C of confectioner's sugar. This made a good texture to the frosting, without making it sickly sweet. When I paired this frosting with the One Bowl Chocolate Cake, together the cake reminded me of a Wegman's chocolate cake. Definitely not it exactly, but reminiscent.

Chef John's Twice-Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2013
This was my first time making twice-baked potatoes, and they came out truly delicious. I remember in Chef John's video for this recipe that he said he hoped people would experiment and do their own take on the perfect twice-baked potato, so I did. :) My own version of this will be quite different from this, but first of all, I took his advice and chose very round potatoes for baking. I added sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, butter, and a little paprika, salt, and pepper. I feel like this is a base model for whatever kind of potatoes you want to have. It was fun to experiment. My husband and I scarfed these down with 57 Sauce. (I know, completely unlike this recipe, but I'm taking Chef John's advice and that's my excuse.) These looked really classy, too. Will make again and again! Thanks, Chef!

Amatriciana

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2014
Used 3 very thick slices of bacon; peppered to taste, (despite what one reviewer advised in adding salt, I felt the bacon provided plenty of that!); since I didn't have any fresh basil or parsley, used dried of both, to taste; added a splash of white wine to the skillet after the onions and garlic had cooked. This was a delicious pasta dish and a great alternative to my usual marinara sauce. Thanks for the recipe!

Delightful pie. I was so excited to try this! Added 1/4 C of flour, 1/4 C white sugar and 1/4 C brown sugar to the apples. I think I'll make this again.
