Caramelized Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
Finger licking good! I only used about 1 1/2 T of peanut butter and the flavor was still dominant so I added a little more soy sauce and that helped. It also wouldn't thicken up for me very much so I took the juices out of the pan, added a little cornstarch and cook it til it thickened, then threw it back in the pan with the wings and cranked up the heat until it reduced a bit. When I took them out of the pan the sauce stuck pretty well. The meat is so tender and has great flavor!

Apple Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
These are incredibly moist! The only thing I did differently was add literally a shake of cinnamon to the flour mixture. Otherwise followed the recipe to the letter. They produced a nice muffin top, something I'm not good at achieving for some reason when I've made other muffins. Overall really great flavor and texture. Will definitely make again!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
This is yummy! A rich, hearty dish. I doubled the recipe but did not double the pepper. I used sodium free boullion so I added the salt the recipe called for. I decided to do what some others had done and used some chicken broth, so for the 6 1/2 cups of water I needed I used 2 cups of broth and 4 1/2 cups water. I think next time I may use all chicken broth and see how it comes out. Excellent recipe and a great way to use up Christmas ham!

Yam Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
While I don't care for yams, my family does, so I decided to make this dish. They all loved it! I did try it myself, and although I still didn't care for the taste of the yams, the topping was yummy!

Old Fashioned Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
This was very tasty. The only thing I did differently, and it's because I like chunky, not creamy stuffing, is instead of toasting and crushing the bread with a rolling pin, I cut the bread into cubes and toasted them in the oven, then put them on the counter to dry out some more. Everything else I followed as directed and it came out great!

Cream Corn Like No Other

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
OH MY GOODNESS! This is awesome! I used 1/2 & 1/2 in place of both the cream and whole milk because that's all I had, and left out the parmesan cheese because I didn't have any, but I can't see how this can taste any better. So delicious!

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
Soooo good! The only change I made was to use half and half instead of cream to save on calories. It would have been richer with the cream, but honestly this soup tasted great even before I added the half and half so you could vary the recipe several ways.

Beef Tips

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
This was absolutely delicious. I used low sodium soy sauce and left out the 1t salt, and it wasn't salty until I added the gravy packet. I did what others suggested and didn't add the 1c water with the packet because there was alot of juice from the meat, but I'm sure omitting it is what made it taste so salty. Next time I will add the water and simply thicken it up with some cornstarch. I have to give this 5 stars because if I would have followed the recipe I think it would have come out just fine. Thanks for a great recipe denisef!

Amazing Pecan Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
This is really good. Very light but moist. Only change I made, which I won't do again, was to use 1 1/2x's the topping. Reading the ingredient amounts it didn't seem like it would be enough, but adding more made it too sweet for us. Because of this change I would rate it a 4, but since I know next time I make it with the exact amount it will be a 5, so that is my true rating.

Steak House Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
Yum yum yum! These were delicious! The only adjustment I made based on personal taste was to cut down to 2 cloves of garlic, but I think next time I will up it to 3 and see how we like it. I typically don't use alot of salt but I think I could have used a little more here so I added some afterwards. That's easy to change for next time. And there will be a next time!

Marinated Ranch Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
This was really flavorful! I only had chicken tenders so I used those, and I threw them on the BBQ instead of using the broiler. So simple to make...just put them in the marinade in the morning and grill them when you get home. If you know what's in the marinade then yes, it does taste like Ranch, but at the same time, the vinegar changes the flavor so if you didn't know what was in it you might not figure it out. But who cares, it was good! Will definitely make again!

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
This is the best macaroni salad I have ever eaten. I have made it several times now but somehow keep forgetting to rate it! The thing I love the best about this recipe is that it is not swimming in mayo. Too many macaroni/potato salads are and I don't care for them at all. The only thing I change is to cut down on the sugar a bit. It's fine with the full amount but just a little too sweet for my taste. Also, it tastes even better if you make it the day before you plan on serving it. So yummy!

Milky Way® Cupcake Icing

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
I'm not a frosting lover...I'd rather eat cake plain than frosted but can't do that when baking for others. This frosting is so sweet but soooo good! I paired it with the Simple White Cake recipe from this site and it was the perfect balance because the cake wasn't too sweet. I was able to frost 22 cupcakes with one batch of frosting, probably because I frosted them with a knife and wasn't too generous with it because it was so sweet. Make sure that your cupcakes are cooled as well as the frosting. So good, and so easy to make!

Garlic Cheese Chicken Rollups

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
These are delicious! I made exactly has written except that I didn't have whole chicken breasts, only chicken tenders so I used them instead (I didn't use toothpicks) but cooked for the same amount of time as it called for. I made the Garlic Spread recipe from AR for the filling since I couldn't find it at the store. That is yummy too! Both recipes are so easy to make and I will definitely be making them again.

Garlic Spread

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
This is yummy! I originally made it for the recipe on AR for Garlic Cheese Chicken Rollups, but the leftovers will have no problem being used up on various things. I made it exactly as written and it's the perfect balance of flavors to me, but for an extra throw in another clove or two of garlic!

Strawberry Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
I got this recipe from a friend and have made it several times now over the years and it's always a hit. It's a tad sweet, but you are in control when it comes to how much you dip. My favorite fruit to dip is strawberries, but I have used several different types of fruit.

Taco Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
This was really good! The only thing I did to alter the recipe was to use fresh roma tomatoes instead of canned tomatoes. The only other change I might make is to leave off the chips until the dish comes out of the oven. They were a little chewy, not crunchy, and the cheese made them stick together so it was hard to get the taste of them in every bite. 3/11/12 - UPDATE: I have made this several times now and each time I have used roma tomatoes, but I had a can of diced tomatoes that I wanted to use before it went bad so I used them (like the recipe calls for), and I must say that this dish comes out even better with them. I was surprised...I like to use fresh whenever possible, but something about the canned made it so much better so I will make it this way from now on.

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
These are delicious and so easy to make! The only change I made per other reviews was to increase the cinnamon to 1 teaspoon. I buttered my cookie sheet really well and stirred the nuts every 15 minutes and had no problems with either sticking or burning. I used them on the Eat Michigan Salad from this site but they are yummy just to munch on!

Sweet and Tart Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
This was really good! I experimented with both regular and black cherry balsamic vinegars and liked both. The only thing I think I might reduce is the pepper. It was a little too much for my taste, but I think I'll start though by not grinding it as fine and see how that works. Great recipe overall and so simple!

Barley Bake

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
This is a really hearty dish! I did make a couple of changes but I don't think they are significant enough to be called major. I used 1/2 butter and 1/2 olive oil, and since I didn't have any vegetable broth I used chicken. Added a pinch of oregano and lastly I toasted the pine nuts for a few minutes to bring out their flavor. Served it with a roasted chicken and it was awesome! 6/14/10 - Update: Made this again and added a small bit of chopped celery and carrots. It added a subtle flavor change and the carrots made it look pretty!
