Chocolate Chip Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
First try out of the oven and I was a little skeptical..wasn't what I was expecting. More shortbready..but I decided to dip one end of the cooled cookies in melted milk chocolate and drizzled white chocolate over that and they became a masterpiece. DELICIOUS. They tasted much better when cooled and the flavors had time to rest a bit. Next time I think I will add in some finely chopped walnuts and that will complete this perfect recipe! If you are expecting this to be like a regular chocolate chip...it wont be. Thanks for the share.

White Chip Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
I make cookies all the time and these were great...Made just as is and they came out wonderful. I like to make my chocolate cookies a day ahead of time because the good chocolate flavor comes out better after a day at rest. Keep in a air tight container and they held up wonderfully! Thanks for the share.

Stuffed Peppers My Way

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
So Yummmy! I roasted red, yellow and green peppers for 15 minutes. I sauteed onion,garlic, and fresh basil, parsley and chives for 5 min then added small cut up pieces of chicken breasts. Let that sautee for 15 min also adding in cut up pieces of zucchini, brocolli, carrot, and 2 tomatoes. Added the feta and stuffed my pepps with this and topped with fresh grated parmesan cheese and cooked for the extra five minutes. (I did season rice mixture w/ sea salt, pepper, and paprika for some added spice) ABSOLUTELY delicious. Great base recipe to play with.

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
A nice alternate for chicken. First I marinated my chicken in buttermilk for a few hours as I do with all my chicken(1cup milk 1 TBS vinegar or lemon juice if no buttermilk) for that extra moistness. I chopped up some fresh cilantro and added in with the salsa. Topped with the cheese and sour cream this was quite tasty. Served over rice. I will make again.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
I must say I am tempted to give this bread 4 stars because of the sweetness. I am the queen of a sweettooth and am suprised more reviews havn't complained of it being just a bit too sweet. But ofcourse hot out of the oven I polished off 3 rolls with butter spread all over it. They are very delicious and I think cinnamon rolls will be to die for with the sweetness this dough offers. I made one loaf and rolled the other half into balls and put in muffin tins and made rolls. I did let the dough rise again for another hour after I put it in the pans. For those unsure of how long the yeast needs to proof...ten minutes is how long it takes. Will make again and again and just cut the sugar alittle.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
I took in the reviews and didn't want a cakelike brownie so I added 3 eggs to it. You need to add more fat such as butter or egg to make it more brownie like opposed to cakelike. Very delicious and def not like a cake. I then took it to another level and instead of using oil I used 1 stick melted butter and again used the three eggs...now those were some delicious zucchini brownies. I also threw in some choco chips and skipped the frosting. Will make again and again with my crop of zucchinis. I never supplement when making desserts..i'll eat fruit if I must be healthy! oH AND THE BAKING TIME FOR MINE WAS MUCH LONGER..MORE LIKE 40-50 MINUTES.

Balsamic Chicken and Fresh Mozzarella

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
I've been making chicken with this marinade for years and it is absolutely delicious 5++ stars. I use good seasons dressing mix and use balsamic for the vinegar. In the summer I BBQ the chicken on low for 8 minutes per side and add the slice of tomatoe(or even roasted red peppers--which I like more) and top with the mozz cheese and let that sit for 1 more minute on the grill til it just melts alittle...and boy does my family and guests love me. Don't pass this up. Any cooking method this turns out delicious.

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2007
Very yummy side dish for a BBQ I just had. I made the night before. I used a smaller can of black beans and added also a small can of chick peas to compensate. Instead of frozen corn I used a can of whole kernel corn-the rest I kept the same and it was delicious. My brother took a container home before I could serve it. He loved it.

Greek Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2007
Very delicious side for a BBQ I just had. I used the tri-color orzo which gave such a wonderful added flavor and I left out the olives for taste preference. I used red, orange, and green peppers to add more color. I made the night before the party and just before serving I skipped adding in the artichoke marinade and added instead a greek vinagrette dressing with a splash of balsamic. Very good and the little that was left over still tasted good a few days later. Will make again.

Tomato and Mozzarella Bites

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2007
Small Mozz balls are my favorite and this is a great way to serve as a side dish or appetizer. I buy the big container of them at costco to save alittle on money. I string on skewers for a steadier hold and just snip the skewer in half once loaded. One ball on a toothpick isn't enough for me :-) I then drizzle the balsamic dressing over them-this way dipping isn't necessary(gets complicated and messy with guests). You could even add in a sliced piece of provolone. YUMMY! GREAT GREAT RECIPE!

Frozen Orange Cream Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2007
Refreshing dessert. I doubled the recipe and used an oversized graham cracker pre made crust. I needed to add in more vanilla ice cream to make it taste more like a creamsicle. Just added til I got the flavor I was looking for. I added dollops of cool whip to the top and it went over well. I want to try adding Tang orange drink next time to see if that flavor is better. THANKS!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2007
More than 5 stars! Absolutely fabulous. I had a big party so I got two huge pork shoulders from Costco for cheap and used two crock pots and put one in each. 10:00 the night before I put in crockpot on low with the broth and the next morn at 8am the meat was shredding right off. I threw out the fatty parts(don't like) and emptied out the broth and returned the shredded meat adding a bottle of my favorite BBQ sauce to each crock pot. I covered and let sit until an hour before the party and put back on low to warm. I added in more sauce to my liking. YUMMY YUMMY!! Great share.

Stuffed Strawberries

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2007
I am giving this 5 stars but I think that was due to the fact that I dipped the stuffed strawberries in chocolate(just melted choc semi sweet morsels with a dab of veg oil). Ohh my how good they were and how people raved about them. The filling itself I used only 1 tbsp grand marnier liqueur and found it waaaay to overpowering so I added in a little extra sugar, and a few tbsp of fluff and grated in some nice semi sweet chocolate. That was good but next I think I'll skip the liqueur and add in some vanilla bean or almond extract. I would only give 4 stars as is but DIPPED IN CHOCOLATE..they are fabulous. I bet adding mini choc chips to the stuffing would be great too! This def is a great recipe that you can experiment with.***update..I now have made with the vanilla bean and/or extract on they are TO DIE FOR!!

George's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2007
5 stars for sure. I love making cookies and this reipe is a keeper. I did half the recipe and chopped up milk chocolate kisses, ghiradella semi sweet chocolate and some nice dark chocolate. It was a nice treat to go all out and use the good chocolates for these cookies. I'm sure using average chocolate would still make a great cookie. I did cream the butter and sugars then added the egg and vanilla and gradually added in the flour mixture with blended oatmeal. I dropped by heaping tbsp onto sheets(didn't flatten with a fork) and needed to bake for 9 minutes and they were perfect. 6-8 minutes and they were too raw and not ready to come out yet. Thanks!

Stephen's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2007
Def a great cookie. All the flavors were wonderful. I did leave out the nuts in half the batch for taste preference for the happy recipients. The only thing I did change was that it was so hot and humid when I made these that I added a cup of quick oats that I blended into powder and added in with the flour. My choc chips tend to turn into pancakes when it is so hot and this trick makes for perfect cookies. Do try!

I made the morning of my party and added the dressing when I served like suggested. Thanks Gourmet for a fabulous side dish.

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2007
This was a great coleslaw recipe. The buttermilk with the white wine vinegar makes a delicious flavor. I adjusted the vinegar to my liking and added more salt and pepper and didn't add in all the sugar. I always wondered how restaurants make their coleslaw and now I know. So creamy and yummy. Will be making this again and again. There are so many good add-ins to try...pineapple chunks, dijon mustard, paprika etc...

Crunchy Ice Cream Dessert

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2007
This was a nice variation to an ice cream treat. I did double the topping mix and I think if you don't you will not have enough to fully coat the top and bottom of the pan. My guests loved it and so did I. I wish I read the review to put hershey syrup on the ice cream before putting on the top crust. That would have added a great touch. My one complaint though which has nothing to do with the YUMMY taste..is that you need a plate to eat it over..not a walk around bar type of dessert which I thought it would be. Thanks!

Sizzling Chicken Skewers

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2007
SOOO GOOD!! My guests couldn't stop commenting how good this was. Who would of thought with all the crazy ingredients. I made the marinade the night before and marinated my chicken in it all night(really makes for moist chicken). The only subs were vidalia onion for the green onion, and I had no cayenne pepper so I used paprika with a few red pep flakes. I also used lite soy sauce..The regular soy would make it way too salty. I strung chicken on the skewers with the pepper, pineapple chunks, and vidalia onion and my oh my..they were soo good. Don't pass this up.

Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Crabmeat

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2007
5 stars for sure. First I marinated my chicken(5 breasts) in buttermilk for a few hours as I do with all my chicken(1cup milk 1 TBS vinegar or lemon juice if no buttermilk) for that extra moistness. The fresh crumbs..I used 5 pieces day old bread, with 6-8 ritz crackers, fresh parsley and basil and blended it all up. Soo yummy. I did add grated lemon rind and paprika to the filling and talk about good..MMMMMM. I did brown the chicken till just brown and then baked 350 for 25-30 minutes. I topped with Blender Hollandaise Sauce from this site. Restaurant quality for sure. The filling alone is to die for! Thanks!!!
