Amy's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2007
Tasty, great texture, very easy to make, not too sweet. I used chocolate instant pudding since I had it on hand, and it made a richer chocolate color than I assume the vanilla makes. I also added a teaspoon of Cherry extract but could not taste the cherry flavor -was trying for a choc-cherry flavor. Want to make using lemon pudding with lemon zest. Thanks for this recipe, it's a keeper for sure.

Perfect Baked Potato

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
For those who don't want to use the oven, these bake in the microwave beautifully. After scrubbing the skin clean, I pierce the potatoe, generously rub olive oil or canolla oil and sprinkle kosher salt and/or garlic powder all over the potatoes before placing them into the microwave on a paper towel. Then I cover them with a dry paper towel and on top of that I place a couple of wet paper towels. Bake on high for 10 to 20 minutes depending on size and number of potatoes. Remove top paper towels, sprinkle more salt/garlic if desired,turn potatoes over and cook another 5 to 10 minutes as needed. The skins are always delicious, tender and crispy. I often make twice-baked or stuffed potatoes this way, with a variety of ingredients in the "stuffing".

Molasses Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2006
Oh, my gosh, these are great! I followed recipe as written, refrigerated dough 4 hours and baked. While first batch was in the oven, I rolled rest of dough and put in fridge until ready for next batch, then rolled the balls in sugar and baked. Dough very easy to work with. Ten minutes at 375 and the cookies were PERFECT; just the right amount of crisp on outside and softness inside. The texture could not be better and the taste was a perfect blend of spices (even though they were a bit too sweet for my husband) and a big hit with neighbors. Thanks, Karin, for this great recipe. I'll e making these again and again!

Crispy Cucumbers and Tomatoes in Dill Dressing

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2006
Have made this delicious recipe twice this week: 1x for a dinner party of 14 women and 2 days later at my husbands request. I used Splenda and Apple Cider vinegar. Added extra dill the 2nd time. A wonderful, refreshing, pretty, easy and tasty salad. It's a winner and I'll make it often. Thanks so much.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2006
OUTSTANDING. Thanks for this very easy and very delicious recipe. I used half white sugar and half Splenda. I added 1 tsp lemon juice and 1 tsp vanilla. I did add the water and it was perfect; not at all thin as other reviewers mentioned. I used Granny Smith, Fuji and Rome apples. Great both warm or cold. This is a keeper!

Ambrosia Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2006
Fantastic and EASY. I made this for 14 gals in our Club. Everyone loved it. Used only 1 cup of coconut, 2 cans fruit cocktail, 1 can pineapple chunks, 1 can mandarin oranges and 1 jar of cherries. Added red seedless grapes, 2 tubs Cool Whip and walnuts. Thanks for this great recipe; I'll be making this again.

Dill, Feta and Garlic Cream Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2006
Outstanding, and so easy to fix. Used 2 tsp dried dill instead of fresh, thinned it down just a little with milk, and served it in a hollowed-out round squash as another reviewer did. Gone instantly, a true party pleaser. Thanks for this keeper recipe!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2006
A delicious, guick and easy recipe that's very versatile. After reading other reviews, I was expecting it to be on the thin side. But that was not the case. I used fresh chicken tenders and basically followed the recipe. The only onion I had turned out to be bad when I cut it open, so I used 1/2 pkg Lipton onion dip mix. I used 1 can refrigerator biscuits cutting them into 3rds. The chicken and veggies were done when I checked them at 3-1/2 hours and I added the dumplings and frzn peas then. I also added a cup or so of water to thin it down. The biscuits cooked in an hour and I added a little more water. The consistency was thick like a chicken stew. The taste was wonderful, chicken tender and perfect, dumplings very good. My husband enjoyed this even though he prefers thighs and wings. Other ideas: This would make a good chicken pot pie w/o the dumplings. It would also be good served over cooked biscuits or toast, or with rice, w/o the dumplings. But, both my husband and I really liked the dumplings made this way. Thanks for this recipe; I'll be making it again for sure.

Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2006
Had to review this again since I've made it at least 6 to 8 times this summer. It was fabulous the 1st time I made it and has become a favorite. I don't measure ingredients any longer and I vary them with what I have on hand. Plumped raisins and sunflower seeds make it extra good, but it's great without.It's a wonderful make-ahead dish and left-overs keep nicely. I always double the dressing using Splenda, red wine or cider vinegar, and light mayo.THE BEST! deserves 6 stars!

Red Cabbage

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
After reading the other reviews, I used cider vinegar and added caroway seed. It smelled wonderful while cooking, but I ended up tossing it out because it was too tangy for us - too much vinegar. I'll try it again with much less vinegar.

Bacon and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2005
A big winner with my family. So easy and quick to make, and so tasty. A great recipe as is, and can be modified to your personal freferences. Next time I'll add a small can of peas for added color variety. This is good with or w/o the cheese; kids enjoyed adding cheese at the table and watching it blend in. Could also add cooked chicken chunks. This is a keeper and a new favorite. Thanks!!!

Spiced Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2005
Huge hit at our Thanksgiving table. So easy and quick to make with the help of 2 granddaughters peeling apples while I sliced. Served warm as a side dish, and saved some for topping ice cream later. Great both ways. I plan to serve this warm over icecream for Bunco group. Looks pretty and so yummy. This recipe is a winner. Thanks so much.

Baked Pineapple

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2005
Made this for Thanksgiving but it was not a success. Followed recipe and added maraschino cherries. Used less cheese than recipe called for. After dish assembled it looked a bit dry so I added approx. 1/4 cup more pineapple juice. Did not have room in oven so microwaved (covered with plastic Wrap w/ vent holes) for 10 minutes. Came out too dry. Looked pretty, tasted ok but too dry. Will make again and add some of the marischino cherry juice also. There was so much going on in the kitchen (and too many people), and the other reviews were so positive, that I will try this again for sure. I really like the addition of the cherries. Thanks for the recipe; I'm sure it will turn out fine next time.
