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.

Mushroom and Swiss Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2005
Delicious! Husband raved about it through dinner, which wasn't a really long time since he gobbled it up like he hasn't tasted food in a week. Will surely be a regular in our house. The only thing I changed was leaving out the green onions, as a family preference. Thanks for the great recipe!

Sweet Maple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2005
I took a look at this recipe and thought it was surely a disaster... boy was I wrong! It was delicious. The onions were a nice compliment that brought the sweetness down a little. I used way less cream than what was called for but used a lot more oats. Messy but worth it. I just wish there was a healthier version so I could make this more often.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
I took the suggestions from other members: cook chicken in slow cooker and shred later, used can tomatoes seasoned with chiles, added extra garlic, used tortilla chips, and served with cheese and sour cream. A bit too spicy for some family members but DH and I love it.

Pan-Fried Steak with Marsala Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2005
My husband and his co-workers loved it. It came out nice and juicy and it was quick and easy to make. Personally, I'd rate it a 4. I sprinkled it with garlic salt instead of regular salt and added mushrooms. I did simmer the sauce for a lot longer just to make sure the alcohol flavor wasn't too strong.

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.

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.

World's Best Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2005
Loved it! I cut the recipe in half and used 10.75 oz of evaporated milk instead of half and half. I left out the celery and added mushroom. I used another review that stated to saute onion and mushroom with spices and white wine. Excellent. I didn't have much cheddar so I mixed it with mozzarella. It needed much more cheddar. I also didn't have bacon so I put in the remaining bacon bits that we had (approx 1 tablespoon). Even though I cute the recipe in half it could feed us for 2 - 3 days.

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. =)

California Chicken Spaghetti

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2005
This was great though I don't think I used the right Cajun Seasoning. It tasted similar to another recipe I found on here (Pasta Pomodoro). I added extra things: garlic powder, oregano, sugar, crushed red pepper, chicken bouillon, and used chicken broth to dilute the sauce. I also used a can of crushed tomato with some fresh ones. Loved the feta cheese, we used a bit more than called for. My one year old ate this up so I'll be making this time and time 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!

Southern Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2005
********** 10 STARS! All the ingredients blend together extremely well. The only thing I did differently was using Half and Half instead of heavy cream like another poster. I swear my husband finished his bowl in 1 minute. It's simple to make with a flavor that makes it seem like you've been making it all day. I think next time we'll use more mushrooms, just because we love them and try french bread like the other poster. Absolutely yummy! Recommend everyone thinking about making this recipe to do it! You won't be disappointed. One more thing, this was the first time seeing a dish like this (with the bread I mean). Already planning to take it to the in-laws.

Curried Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2005
This had such a strong, wonderful flavor. The only thing I would do differently is use a little less honey, but that's just our preference.

Chicken Parmigiana

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2005
This was good, better than some of the restaurants. I doubled the recipe and used 26.5oz of spaghetti sauce because my family loves their sauce. I also seasoned the bread crumbs with oregano, basil, pepper, salt, and garlic powder. I didn't have any problems with the bread crumbs sticking to the chicken like others had but will definetly fry the chicken first for more flavor. I used Hunts spaghetti sauce and it would be so much better with a good quality spaghetti sauce. I also added garlic to the spaghetti sauce and used provolone instead of mozzarella. I put the provolone on the chicken then the layer of spaghetti sauce and then parmesan cheese. Will definetly make this again with garlic or french bread to dip. Yum!

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.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2005
This is now a regular in my household. My 2yo eats it up (of course he thinks the eggplant is sasuage) and DH who hates the idea of no meat has seconds. I like to add a can or two of tomato sauce to make it more 'saucey' for pasta. I don't like to peel eggplant so I find baking then frying to be the best method to prepare it.

Cola Pot Roast II

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2005
DH only wants this roast from now on. He's already asking me to make it again. Only thing I did different was leave out celery as a personal preference and rubbed more garlic into the meat. Will definitely add more vegetables and use the entire package of gravy mix. I suggest rubbing the meat with some spices as the meat itself was a bit bland, though the sauce was superb!

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.

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.
