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.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
I made a few adjustments and my muffins came out incredibly moist and delicious. I used: 1 cup gluten-free oat flour 3/4 cup brown rice flour 1/8 cup ground flax seed 1/2 cup sucanat 1/4 cup brown sugar I replaced the oil with 1/2 cup whole-milk greek yogurt and didn't use any more yogurt, but had to give batter a splash of milk to thin it a bit.

Sausage Barley Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
Wow! This is my new favorite soup. I can't wait to make it again. The only change I made was to add a healthy pinch of crushed red pepper flakes, and simmer it in a crock pot all day.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2007
This was loved by everyone in my family of six, even earning me extra praise from my 5 yr. old: "Mom, you're best cook of all the food in the world!" I avoid additional sugar, so I left it out. I used Annie's Naturals ranch dressing since it is all-natural and low in sugar. I used both fresh rosemary and fresh thyme from my herb garden, and added a little extra lemon juice. Some skewers were made with just the meat. For those of us who like veggies, I made shish kebab with the meat, red bell peppers, mushrooms, zucchini, and Walla Walla onion. Outstanding!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2006
Very good and enjoyed by everyone. I followed other reviewers suggestions and added poultry seasoning and garlic powder. Also used frozen veggies in place of fresh. Instead of using pie crust, I topped the meat & veggie mixture with corn bread dough and baked for 25 mins at 400 degrees. Next time, I will make more gravy as it did not have enough to suit me.

Baklava

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2006
Phenomenal! So tasty and easy to make. I made this for a special end to Father's Day dinner, and everyone immediately went back for seconds and thirds. I added lemon zest to the syrup as it simmered. And I added about 1/3 more cinnamon than the recipe called for. We did not think it was too sweet.

Cilantro Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2006
We really enjoyed this. The flavors are very light and refreshing. This would be a perfect summer supper salad. I ate it over fresh baby greens. The teenagers mixed it into some stir-fried sesame rice noodles, as well as ate it over the fresh greens.

Simple Whole Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2005
Very simple and very good. My husband commented while it was cooking that it smelled so good, as did a friend who visited just as it was being taken from the oven. The meat ooozed juices as we cut into it. The aroma and flavor was exotic and delicious. My only problem was that the inner part of my chicken was not quite done, even though I gave it an extra 5 minutes in the oven. This could be due to the fact that I had a slightly larger chicken than the recipe called for, and/or due to an aging and possibly faulty oven. I will definitely try this recipe again and again.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2005
This is the only salad that I CRAVE. It is so good! Follow the suggestions and use half the sugar (add some Splenda if you like) and half the oil. THe poppy seeds aren't necessary, they don't really add anything to it. But be sure to toast your sesame seeds to really bring out their flavor. I made it for a party tonight and everyone asked for the recipe.

Cranberry Sauce Extraordinaire

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2005
My mother has always made Cranberry-Orange Relish for Thanksgiving and Christmas. So that's what I did for my first Thanksgiving as a newlywed. Right after dinner, my hubby told me he'd rather have what he grew up with...the canned jellied cranberry stuff. So that's what we've had for the past 15 years. Finally, this past Thanksgiving, I decided I wanted something that was more gourmet tasting. I tried this and it was a big hit! Even my canned-cranberry-loving husband ate it, had seconds, and commented that it was very good. I made it again for Christmas and it will be my recipe forever more.

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.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2005
These are incredible. My 10 yr old daughter got a terrible craving for pancakes and wanted to make some on her own. I showed her this website and we looked for a good recipe together. I even ran out to the grocery that morning for the buttermilk! She made them all by herself and reveled in the praise of her older sisters who declared them better than any they'd ever had in a restaurant. She is as anxious to make them again as we are to eat them!!

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.

Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
WOW! Outstanding soup! I grew up on Campbell's Bean & Bacon, but will not resort to that again. The flavors of this are much more complex and satisfying. The baking soda trick was GREAT -- be sure to rinse off the beans with cold water a couple times. I made the following alterations: After cooking the beans, I put them and the remaining ingredients into a crock pot and cooked on low overnight. I used two smoked ham shanks instead of a simple ham bone, and used diced smoked turkey kielbasa in place of diced ham. I sauteed the veggies in a little olive oil before adding to the crock pot. Used good, rich chicken stock instead of water and did NOT add any salt. A couple good shakes of Tabasco added the necessary balance.

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.
