Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2003
Excellent!! I used both reduced fat cream cheese and mayo, added an entire 10 oz box of chopped spinach, 3 cloves of diced fresh garlic, used 3/4 cup of an italian cheese blend, and halved the basil...it was INCREDIBLE. Great served with fresh diced roma tomatoes on top.

Mandarin Orange Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2003
I would prefer the icing without the crushed pinapple, perhaps with just mandarin orange slices instead, because my cake was super moist and the icing was more like pudding. Still tasted very good, kind of like trifle and ambroisia. Didn't use any oil- substituted apple sauce for all of it. Yummy!

Lebanese Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
Yum! I used boneless skinless chicken tenders and removed them after the first 30 min. and kept them covered until the potatoes finished cooking. They were juicy and lemony, the potatoes are delicious! I sprinkled on a bit of cumin and McCormick grinder italian seasoning.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
Great cookie! Mine always turn out flat and crispy, these were so good and chewy! My only change was to use one cup of finely ground instant oatmeal for the flour. These were perfect! Thanks!

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2003
yummy! Reminds me of the pumpkin soup I had in Australia. I used a whole butternut squash, an acorn squash, and some leftover canned pumpkin I had on hand. Only added 1/2 of one block of cream cheese...still very rich and smooth! Would be excellent served chicken enchilada soup-style- just add some cumin, cooked chicken, and top with cheddar cheese and tortilla chips. Mmmmm!!!

Apple Dumplings II

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2003
Yummy....I diced my apples and mixed the spices with them before placing in the dough, more like little turnovers. I also made a brown sugar/vanilla sauce using 1 c water, 1 c brown sugar, 1-2 tsps vanilla, and 3 tbsp butter. I simmered the sauce until it boiled down a bit to thicken, and ladled it over the hot dumplings before serving. Top with vanilla ice cream and voila! Note that dumplings are best when eaten straight from oven..they get a bit soggy if stored.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2003
I was going to make these myself but I went into labor, so I gave my mom the recipe and had her make them for me when I was at the hospital. OH MY GOODNESS these were so good!! Very light and cake-like. Even the nurses were eating them on me! My whole family loves them. We prefer them without the nuts and with extra chocolate chips. The best! UPDATE 8/8/2010 I add extra pumpkin to these= the whole can is fine, and they spread out beautifully. Also I use a whole bag of choc chips.

Honey Wheat Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
I have never made bread before, and I was interrupted (had to leave earlier than expected for Thanksgiving dinner!) and let it sit on the stovetop rising for about 6 hours...then formed the loaves and let it rise again once back home. It came out great! I used butter instead of shortening, because that's what I had, and I forgot to add the evaporated milk before I added the yeast, but the recipe was indeed very forgiving. Yummy bread, can't wait until breakfast!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
EASY! I wasn't sure about mixing in the mushroom soup (98% fat free), but it made a rich, dark brown gravy, and it needed no flour. I did add some wine to the the recipe, and skimmed lots of fat off of the top of the pot when it was done cooking (easily done as well.) Very surprised how tasty it was! I only used one can of soup and made a 3.5 lb chuck roast. Next time def. make a 5 lb one and 2 cans of soup!

Zucchini Bisque

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
I chopped my zucchini and used fresh basil as well. I used a whole medium one (probably 4 + cups of zucchini). Fill the pot up, it all cooks down and releases liquids anyway. I only used half the butter with the onions, and omitted the cream in the second batch. (doesn't seem to need extra fat, it's good as is) Also, I added some ground cayenne pepper and serve it over plain white rice. Great way to use up those plentiful zucchinis! I am making several batches and freezing them to enjoy later. Also good with croutons and parmesan cheese on top.

Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
Awesome!! I used stock made from leftover rotisserie chicken, picked the meat off of the bones, set aside. Then I cooked diced onion in some butter until translucent, added garlic, and 2 tablespoons flour to make a roux. I added my chicken stock and cumin, and brought it to a boil and simmered some water off of the stock. Then I added a can of creamed corn, corn from 2 leftover ears of corn on the cob, and the chicken and cumin. I did not add cream, tomato or hot sauce. Instead I put in nearly 8 oz of pepper jack cheese at the end, and stirred until melted. Yum! I did not need to add any boullion or additional salt, either. Very yummy for a cool fall day! thank you for this recipe.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
Really liked this. It is close to what I get in the restaurant,but not exact. However, here are the changes I made: One teaspoon salt in the marinade. 1/4 tsp salt in the sauce. I used one tsp garam masala and one of cumin in the sauce. Also, I used 2 8 oz cans of tomato sauce, this made the sauce nice and red and we had plenty for 1.5 lbs of chicken. Also, I halved the cayenne in the marinade, and used much less in the sauce instead of jalepeno. It was still too spicy for the kids, but good for my husband and I. I will use less cayenne next time. Served over jasmine rice. Would be great with the naan recipe on this site!

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
Fantastic! Made as stated, but I baked for 20 min until bubbly at 400 and mixed the fresh parmesan with some fresh bread crumbs, about 50/50. Served with sliced french bread (didn't have time to toast, still was devoured!) and tostitos and salsa. THANKS!! Great recipe. We had 10 adults, and this was literally inhaled in no time...so if you have a large group I would reccommend a double batch in a shallow baking dish. (definitely bake, it allows the flavors to blend!)

French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
awesome!!!! thanks. Used croutons, too...it's easier! For those of you who had trouble caramelizing onions on the stove top...you can do it in the crock pot. Use one pound of onions and two tablespoons of butter per quart in your crock pot. (So a six quart crock pot can caramelize six pounds of onions with 12 tablespoons of butter) Pile onions into crock pot, add butter to the top, stir after a few hours and leave on low overnight. http://thepioneerwoman.com/tasty-kitchen/recipes/canning/caramelized-crock-pot-onions/)

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
It tastes so awesome can't wait for it to get done! I used chicken breast and fork-shredded it, just added enough until it looked right and popped it into the oven at 350 for at least 20 minutes. Delish! Oh, and I really dont think you even need the shredded cheese...it's great as is!

Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
For how simple this dish is, it's pretty tasty. Good comfort food. I only put the cheese on top, and probably only used 1-2 cups to save some calories. Also added some chili powder the 3rd time making this...it makes a lot but it's great for leftovers. Yum!
