Quiche Supreme

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2013
Have made this twice in onc week. It was a huge hit in our family, (had planned for dinner but never got that far as it was gobbled up for breakfast, lunch, and snacks -- and I discovered empty pie pans awaiting me . . .) Absolutely delicious cold or hot. Some minor tweaks that I made: used Jimmy Deans cooked turkey sausage rather than ham, and approximately doubled all the spice quantities. Quiches always seem to take a long time to cook in my oven, so I cut back the cream to 1-1/2 cups.

Harvested Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
Bland. I was disappointed in the recipe. Thought it very bland (although I did add a little salt and pepper to try to help). My son didn't like; my teen-age daughter said, "Mom, it tastes like something is missing". Following on another reader's suggestion, and not wanting to waste the batch, I added a can of cream of celery soup and simmered a few minutes more, but it still didn't have a memorable flavor. Perhaps if recipe had used various seasonings the broth would have been more flavorful. My husband was out of town last night but I will ask him to try the soup when he returns tonight and if he thinks any differently than the rest of our family I will edit the post.

Cheater's Fudge

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2011
I actually thought that this recipe was quite good, but it is definately not fudge!!! I don't think that it tastes bad, though! the only problem for me though was that my microwave started to send out smoke and it set off our smoke alarm!

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
This is virtually the identical recipe in every single aspect, to what I have used for 30 years to make chicken fried rice. I was taught this delicious recipe by the daughter of the owner of a Chinese restaurant.It is a favorite with my children and relatives, and guests are always amazed and rave about it. Yet it is so easy to make, and great for a last minute meal, as I almost always have the ingredients on hand (I buy big bags of chicken breasts, boil, chop, and divide into one pound bags that I freeze for instant availability). A few notes from my experience: (1) You can even make the rice a day ahead, spread the cooked rice out onto a baking sheet (cover with a dish towel) and leave until the next day. When the rice is cool and dries out a bit, it stir fries much better. (2) Green onion looks prettier. I like to use it if I have on hand, otherwise any onion will do - and quantities are flexible - I often use more than in this recipe. (3) Frying it longer, I think makes it tastier. (4) Optional - If desired, cook a small package of frozen peas and carrots (don't overcook! should be tender but not mushy. I usually steam in microwave). When fried rice is ready, stir in the cooked peas and carrots at the very end - adds some nice color and taste. ( I only occasionally add for some tasty variation -- kids like this too very much).

Tzatziki II

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
Great recipe. I used the exact ingredients, but have some comments that could help improve the quality of the texture. (These suggestions came from the owner of a local mid-east restaurant, who offers tzatziki on her menu). Instead of grating the cucumber after seeding it, simply cut into smaller pieces. Gratiing it necessitates the draining / pressing out of the water that accumulates (otherwise the yoghurt is watery). Also, the recipe doesn't specify the type of yoghurt, and most tzatziki recipes include the time-consuming step of straining the yoghurt in order to thicken it. However, I used plain Greek yoghurt (now easily obtained at local grocery stores -- in my case Albertsons), which is already thick and the perfect degree of tanginess. One more comment about the garlic: I bought peeled whole garlic cloves, and realized they were probably 25% larger than cloves on a typical garlic clump that I usually buy from the store. Thus, my family and I thought the recipe was slightly too garlicy. It is of course a matter of taste, too, but in the future I'd adjust the quantity of garlic accordingly. Overall, it was delicious. Our family (including children aged 8 and 10) love dipping it up with pita bread and eating it that way -- the same way I enjoyed it as a child.

Overnight Caramel Pecan Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
Delicious - whole family loved. I did double the caramel sauce (as other reviewers suggested), and am glad I did as it was just perfect. It is simple, but took a long time to make the dough - will experiment in future using bread machine or dough bought from store bakery (or frozen dough) - to see if I can reduce the preparation time without diminishing wonderful flavor and texture.

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
Delicious. Followed the recipe exactly; except that I used chopped cooked sausage instead of bacon (Jimmy Dean's fully cooked turkey sausage from Costco). (I was surprised the recipe didn't call for salt - but of course it got the salt from the cheese and sausage. I also thought that the cottage cheese seemed like an odd ingredient but I dutifully added it - and it must have been a great ingredient!) Our family really enjoyed it. Next time I might try adding a little chopped bell pepper and mushrooms to the onion (sautee together before adding to the rest of the recipe) - would add some color and possibly even more flavor to an already great casserole!

Sausage and Apple Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
We were disappointed. It sounded so delicious, but the end result seemed bland and my family did not like very much. Noone ate the leftovers. I did follow one user's recommendation and tried it using cinnamon raisin bread, but other than that I followed the recipe. I don't know what might have gone wrong, because it sure sounded good -- but didn't taste at all like what I had anticipated.
