Cinnamon Rolls III

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2005
My kids ask for cinnamon rolls every weekend and I am always trying new recipes when I'm not buying the frozen rise-and-bake ones from the grocery. I decided to try these last weekend and the were an instant hit!! They were easy to make and better than any I've tried before. Like many others, I do not have a breadmaker, and so made the dough in my KitchenAid stand mixer. I used almost the whole box of pudding mix, I used about 2 tsps of it to add to the filling since I was a little short on the brown sugar. I also used the "Clone" icing recipe. YUMMMMM!

Grilled Venison Backstrap

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2005
Incredible! I made this for Christmas dinner. It was immediately decided that this would be our traditional dinner from now on. Since I do not care for BBQ sauce, I used A.1. Steak House Marinade - Garlic and Herb. Every mouthful was tender and delicious. Watch the cooking time carefully and remember that the meat will continue to cook after it is removed from the grill -- important if you like your meat medium rare, as I do.

Biscotti Toscani

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2004
Ohhhhhhh, these are good. We made these tonight with the intention of giving them as little holidays gifts to teachers and friends. I don't think they're going to last that long! The only change we made was instead of semi-sweet choc chips, we used orange-flavored milk chocolate purchased from Whole Foods bulk. I think this really enhanced the other orange ingredients. I feel another batch of these coming on....

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2004
MMMMMMMMM so good!! These are incredible cookies and a beautiful gift. We made the jars up last year as teacher and neighbor gifts and received many glowing reports and thanks. I have purchased all the ingredients to do it again this year. (And just to remind myself how good they are, I made a batch for us to eat tonight!) I have to make one small change, and that is to switch the baking soda to baking powder. Living at 5000ft altitude, my cookies don't "fluff" unless I make this substitution.

Cheese Ravioli with Fresh Tomato and Artichoke Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2004
This was very fast and tasty. I can't see really needing a recipe for this, it's that simple. A great dish for a novice cook who wants an impressive recipe BURSTING with flavor. I'm making myself hungry just typing this review!

Waffle Iron Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2004
These were very good, and easy to make. I made them for breakfast when my best friend came to visit and stay with us. We ate them just like regular waffles - with butter and syrup. The few of them that were left-over were quickly consumed by my kids as soon as they came home from school. They immediately requested them for weekend breakfast and there were no leftovers!!

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2004
This was good, but nothing to write home about (and believe me, if I find something to write home about, I do...my Mom is a gourmet cook.) It definitely WAS better the next day. Quite salty, even though I used pork sausage instead of ham. If I make it again, I would do as other have suggested and use reduced-sodium soup. Definitely a high-fat and high-carb food for when you want that kind of thing.

French Toast Souffle

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2004
This is a consistent hit with my large family and anyone who happens to join us for breakfast. I buy french bread loaves from the day-old (or older!) rack at the market. That way, the bread is already a little on the dry side. Once home, I cube it (2 in cubes)then I store those in the freezer until I am ready to make this recipe. I follow the recipe exactly, with the only addition being 1/2 tsp of almond extract. If I have dried fruit on hand (apples, raisins, cranberries) I add a handful to the recipe and it is always tasty. Thanks for a great recipe for this busy Mom!

Chicken Andouille Gumbo

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2004
This is my husband's favorite food that I make. The roux takes longer than 6 minutes, more like 20. I add chopped onion (about 1 cup) and several cloves of minced garlic, and don't use celery or bell pepper. I add 2 cans of "Roasted Garlic" diced tomatoes (Hunt's) Use frozen okra and simmer separately for about 20 mins. then strain off the goo. That way the okra is not slimey in the soup. I also add shrimp - the "Easy-Peel" frozen kind at the market - and I simmer the shells in just enough water to cover them, for about 10 minutes. I strain the shells out and use this flavorful broth as part of the water required. Then I add the raw shrimp in the last 5 mins. of cooking - don't overcook your shrimp or they'll be tough! I add Zatarain's Creole Seasoning to taste. Serve over hot rice. This is so good that my neighbors will come around when they smell this cooking at my house. It's work-intensive but so worth it. Leftovers freeze and reheat well.

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2003
Very good and moist. Better the second day. I don't recommend using a Bundt pan as I did on my first try. It wouldn't come out of the pan! We used an almond flavored coffee and it was really delicious. Needed an extra 15 minutes of baking time, perhaps because of our higher altitude here in Colorado.

Chocolate Mice

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2003
Our 11 yr. old made these for a Halloween party and they were a riot! So tasty, too!! We displayed ours in a shoe box with holes punched in the top, and "LAB MICE - DO NOT OPEN!" written on the lid. Have fun making these with your kids and coming up with many variations.

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2003
Excellent and easy! I used beef broth instead of vegetable and simmered it most of the day. Can use less stock for a thicker soup, which I prefer. I served it with Jasmine rice. Our 11 yr old ate 2 bowls and I had 3 bowls myself. I use 3 cans of beans, puree 1 1/2, and use "Roasted Garlic" stewed tomatoes. If I have leftover meat (beef, chicken or our favorite, ham) then I chop it and add it to this soup

Hot Chicken Salad IV

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2001
Execellent and satisfying for those "calories-be-damned" days when you need a tummy-warming meal. This is a great fall/winter meal when cold chicken salad just won't cut it.

Fluffy Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2001
I was pleasantly surprised. This dish was prepared easily and enjoyed by everyone, even my finicky kids. I used neufchatel cheese instead of cream cheese to cut down on calories, and also left off the fried onions though I think they would make a great addition.
