Ranch Burgers

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2004
This was a great hit at our weekly bbq!! It stayed juicy even though my husband tends to overcook meat. I left out the onion and sauteed it instead. We had it with avodaco, lettuce, tomato, sauteed onion, sauteed mushroom with cheddar or swiss cheese. I will absolutely make this again!

Spaghetti Carbonara II

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
I've wanted to make Carbonara for months but was always frightened off about cooking the egg and ruining the dish. Tonight I felt brave and found a great recipe to add to the regular rotation. =) I took the advice of others of combining the egg and cheese and added it to the dish after the pasta had cooled slightly. Creamy goodness! I used Turkey Bacon because that's all we had. The only comment my husband made was that he wanted more bacon and perhaps mushrooms in it too. Other than that he really liked it. It was quick, easy, and all ingredients are readily stocked in my house... love it!

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
Husband raved and raved about this soup. I know people don't like it when the recipe is changed up so much but I find the reviews helpful. Anyways, I used leftover chicken from a roast I made earlier and a 8.8oz package of Uncle Ben's 90 second rice (that's all I could find). I cut the flour to 1/4 cup but would probably use more next time. I also used 1 C of Heavy Cream and 1 C of Skim Milk (that's all I had) and omitted the salt. One last change, I sauteed an onion before the broth step, like others have suggested. My husband does not like to eat anything with bones in it so he's not a fan of my roasted chicken. BUT he said that he'd like me to roast chicken more often if only to make this soup. =) That's a definite winner in my book.

Eggnog Pound Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
This was one of 5 recipes I made for our family's annual Christmas dessert party. It got rave reviews and was picked as the one to take to the party over the others. I also did not use the custard but made a glaze with 2 C powdered sugar, 2 tbsp butter, 1 tsp vanilla, 3 tbsp eggnog (plus more to get desired consistency), and 1 tbsp butterscotch schnapps.

Cream Puffs

Reviewed: May 22, 2007
Made a double batch of the dough (40 puffs) and 1 batch of filling. I was surprised at how easy this was. Everyone raved about this and was even asked if I'm taking Culinary classes at school. Used a cookie scoop to make them all the same size. The only thing I had a problem with was the baking time, but I'll try it with another oven and see how it goes. I'm looking forward to trying these out with other pudding flavors. *EDIT* Made this again for 4th of July for another crowd. Did a batch of chocolate and a batch of vanilla. The chocolate was devoured! I made it in a different oven and the cooking time was perfect at 22 - 23 minutes. I don't seem to have any problems with deflation or having the puffs turn out flat. The filling is great but I'm trying to hunt down something that doesn't taste like pudding. This is now one of my 4yo's favorite recipe to make.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
I made this last year and my husband took it to work. He got rave reviews from it then. Recently, he got asked if I'm planning on making it again this year. I guess when people remember an item from over a year ago it has to be good. =)

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: May 22, 2007
Took it to a BBQ with some friends and it was a hit! Added 2 cloves crushed garlic; used kosher salt instead of garlic salt; and an already mixed shredded cheese bag that had all of the cheese in it. How simple and delicious. I've already had requests to make it again.

Sweet Potato Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2006
Everyone said it was a success. I used much more flour than called for like everyone else. I made small rolls for my son and it made about 3 dozen. My 3yo absolutely loves these rolls and nearly ate half of them over the weekend. They have the slightest hint of sweet potato, I wish there was more but it still is wonderful. Will definitely be making again and again. Thaks for sharing this great recipe!

Restaurant Style Chicken Nachos

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2006
We've had this twice in a week. Very easy to make. I left out the chicken/salsa mixture and poured it on top of the melted chesse since the chips got soggy the first time. Added refried beans, sour cream, guacamole, and chopped olives.. a warm 7 layer dip. :) Love it and will be a regular in our house. Thanks for the great recipe!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2006
DH rates this a 5 since I've never had a Sloppy Joe before. Only thing I did different was leave out the Bell Pepper for my son. Will be making again, thanks for the great recipe.

Irish Cream Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
This was delicious. I made this for a Christmas dessert party and it won the most overall votes for the night. :) It was gone in 3 hours! It was very moist and extremely easy.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
I made this for my husband's family after Thanksgiving and got RAVE reviews on it. I added in bacon, used regular feta, and it made 2 quiches. This was gone within minutes and it even got the kids to eat spinach. I've already had requests to make it again. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
These were good and simple to make. Used all margarine because that's all I had. Used more sugar and cinnamon and took the very helpful advice of putting it in a sandwich bag to roll the balls in. I'm not a big fan of the cream of tartar taste in it so will definitely sub lemon juice. It wasn't flat, dry, or crunchy at all. The only thing that bothered me was that I couldn't get it to crackle. 12/4/10 - Just finished making 30 dozen of these... and lived! I used butter flavored crisco and vinegar to replace the cream of tartar. Loved it this way! I also chilled the dough this time, which I think helped with the puffiness. Changed rating from 4 to 5 stars.

Pumpkin Pie Spice II

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
I had everything for a recipe I wanted to make except the pumpkin pie spice. I'm so glad I was able to did this recipe so I didn't have to go to the store. Definitely worth a try if you are in a pinch or if you just don't want to buy an unnecessary spice.
