Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2014
This recipe is easy to make, but HUGE on flavor! My husband usually just simply comments that something is good or not. He stated that this crisp has the perfect balance- I almost fell over! As many reviewers stated, you don't need the water. I used half each of brown and white sugars (Splenda), about 10 Granny Smith, and 6 Gala apples for the fruit base. I grated a little fresh nutmeg in with the sugar that goes over the apples. Next time I will add half again as much topping- it was the best part. The tart, soft apples play nicely against the sweet crunchy topping perfectly. My kitchen smelled heavenly, and my husband asked for seconds. Thanks, Diane, for this fantastic recipe.

Caprese Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2014
This recipe is wonderfully flavorful, and the chicken was very tender. I skipped the chicken seasoning because I felt there would be enough flavor from the Italian dressing and seasoning. The chicken was grilled on the BBQ using wood chips which added flavor. I added the mozzarella and tomato at the end, and put the grill lid down to allow the cheese to melt which saved a dirty pan. I cut my fresh basil into a chiffonade because a whole leaf can be overwhelming as well as more difficult to eat. Since the breasts were large, I sliced them horizontally. We liked the thinner chicken, and it cooked quicker. My family raved about this recipe, asking me to "star" it so I can make it again. Thanks for a fantastic recipe.

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2012
I knew this would be delicious, and it was superb! I used thawed, frozen spinach with the water squeezed out. I used jarred mushrooms bc it's what I had on hand, and I added a bit of sea salt, garlic granules and pepper to the chicken prior to baking. Do to our preferences, I added granulated garlic and onion powder to the cream mixture. The completed dish had a lovely brown crust, and the spinach tasted like a delicious creamed spinach. I will be making this dish regularly. Thank you Bryan0320 for this fantastic recipe which is good enough for company.

Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
This is really tasty! My family was thinking about the dish after it was gone, wishing there were more! I added a 13 oz.box of cooked of whole wheat penne, omitted the cayenne, butter, water chestnuts and used shredded Parmesan cheese due to our personal preferences. I also added a good 1/4 cup of GOOD sherry (do NOT use cooking sherry as it's full of salt) and used the rest of a rotisserie chicken that I had. My family requested this dish within a week; it's that good!

Maple Meltaways

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2011
I always look for new cookie recipes around Christmas and this one appealed to me. However, when I saw the up and down reviews, I was hesitant to try it. I can say I'm really glad that I did. These are tender, buttery, tasty and attractive! I didn't change the recipe at all. You should make sure your butter is soft (use the real thing), but I don't recommend putting it in your microwave. I used a small cookie scoop to keep the size uniform, which I think is also important. Mix the dough thoroughly. I had some butter on the top of the mixing bowl that I incorporated into a couple of cookies and these really spread out! Otherwise, the other cookies were fine and maintained their shape. Mine took 12 minutes exactly at 350º, and when done, I let them cool on the cookie sheet about 10 minutes before removing them to a wire cooling rack. The maple flavor is very delicate, so if you want a heavier maple taste, you may want to make a thin maple glaze for garnish once the cookies are completely cool. My husband loved them just the way they were, and I will be making these again for sure. Thanks, Denise for this wonderful recipe!

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
Extremely tasty! I found, like others, that the zucchini should be salted and the moisture squeezed out prior to adding other ingredients. Next time, I will add less flour in order to get crispier patties. I may add some fresh chives, too. My husband HATES squash of any kind, but ate these and was talking about "next time"! Great recipe!

Mocha Bundt Cake

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
I haven't yet made this cake, but I definitely will! For the person(s) concerned about the holes poked in the cake, it may look a little nicer if you use one of those long, thin, wooden skewers used for making kabobs. That might make it look neater. Anyway, once the cake is cut, no one is going to be looking at the top of the cake when a slice is layed on a plate!

Frozen Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
I could barely get the dough rolled into balls because my husband and daughter were eating the dough right out of the mixing bowl. I found that the frozen balls were a bit too hard and suggest letting them thaw somewhat before eating. Otherwise, excellent!

Festive Shortbread Logs

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
These are very tender and "short" with a nice hint of maple flavor. They are so "short" that it was difficult to keep the cookies from breaking when dipping in the chocolate. The next time I will thin the chocolate a little more. Be careful when taking them off the cookie sheet as well. Delicious!

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2011
This frosting took a lot more liquid, and I added until it was a consistency that I thought I could spread. It was fluffy, but wasn't overly sweet or peanut butter tasting. It made a LOT of frosting for a standard sized cake. I thought it was average in taste and consistency.

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
Well, if someone can screw this up, it's I! I carefully melted on low on the stove and it just became a gelatinous goop in which the ingredients wouldn't incorporate. I decided to try it again in the microwave and it worked great! Be careful how much time you use at a time as some microwaves are more powerful. I did mine only 20 seconds at a time and I used milk chocolate chips due to preference. Great recipe!

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
This cake had really good flavor, but in my opinion, needed a bit more spices. Due to dietary needs, I used applesauce in place of the oil, 1 cup of whole wheat flour, and 3/4 cups each of Splenda and brown sugar Splenda. I made Caramel Frosting III from this site, again using Splenda brown sugar and 2% milk (no cream) which I drizzled over the cake. It was a great complement to the apple flavor. This cake was very tasty and well-received by my guests. I will make this recipe again.

I didn't care for the grainy texture of the graham crackers in the base.

Rosemary Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
Loved, loved, loved this dish! I used 2% milk to cut fat and calories-- it turned out well. I added 4 cloves of garlic just because we like it. It was a big hit at my house! The fragrance in the house was amazing. Thanks for such a tasty recipe. When I made this again, I grated 8 oz. of parmesan cheese and added half to the white sauce. I put the remainder on top of the potatoes. Even better!

Chicken Breast Stuffed with Spinach Blue Cheese and Bacon

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
This recipe was superb! I used gorgonzola because I didn't have blue cheese. It was milder in taste, and creamier than blue, and the chicken was moist and tender. This dish not only tasted like a restaurant dish, but it presented exceptionally well. My family loved it. Thank you for a terrific chicken dish that I will make again!

Hasselback Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
These were pretty good, my family thought the potatoes were too crispy. I make a similar recipe that my family prefers over these because they are softer. I peel and slice the potatoes in the same manner. Melt some butter in a microwave-safe casserole. Roll the potatoes in the butter, leaving them cut side up. Top with salt, pepper, grated Parmesan cheese and paprika. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for about 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender (depending upon the strength of your microwave).

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
Sorry, but we didn't like this recipe. The ingredients sounded great, but even with extra garlic, it lacked in flavor. Also, the "sauce" wasn't thick enough to coat the chicken which didn't adhere to pasta and was too liquidy to serve over the chicken alone. I won't make this again.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
Excellent although I have to review the process rather than the recipe as it was written. Due to dietary concerns, I had to make a low-sugar barbecue sauce. I also started the recipe late in the day and didn't have the time to make this is a crockpot. I put a pork butt roast in a heavy pan along with beef broth and let it cook on the stove for 3-4 hours until the meat was tender. I added my barbecue sauce after shredding the pork and did let it cook a little longer. I think it will be even better after it sits. Next time, I will make the meat a day ahead to allow for this. I made the restaurant style cole slaw from AR as an excellent accompaniment. My husband loves pulled pork and this was my first time trying such a recipe--it's definitely a keeper. Thanks for a wonderful, easy recipe!

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
This has excellent taste! Most cole slaw dressings are blah, but not this one! Unfortnately, I didn't have buttermilk on hand, but the vinegar and lemon juice added to milk did the same thing. I only added as much milk as was called for even without adding the buttermilk. The consistency was quite good and the dressing had a nice balance of tang! I did presalt the cole slaw, let drain for a good hour, then rinsed and let drain for a while to keep the slaw from becoming too wet. I used the slaw on top of the barbecued pork sandwiches listed on this site. I will use this recipe many times (and I'm not a cole slaw fan!). Thanks for a great recipe.

Mushroom Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
I gave this recipe 4 stars only due to the lack of seasonings. Otherwise, it was excellent; a nice pace of pace .I lightly dusted the meat in whole wheat flour and browned it. While camping, I used 1/2" thick turkey cutlets. I sauteed a small onion in some olive oil, then added fresh, sliced baby portobellas seasoned with dried thyme. After removing them from the pan, I browned the cutlets. Next I added a couple splashes of 2% milk and a couple splashes of chicken broth along with the mushrooms. I covered the pan and let it lightly simmer for about 10 minutes until the cutlets were tender. I added grated Parmesan cheese on top and covered until it melted. This was equally as good. Be sure to add salt, pepper and garlic powder to the cutlets as well as the flour (or whatever you like) before browning. This recipe was definitely a keeper! Thanks for a really good, easy and adaptable recipe.
