Chicken Wild Rice Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2007
This is a great tasting soup! I did it in a crockpot without any of the extra steps. Chicken and roux and rice were all raw. Just combined everything, set it on low and walked away. I added the cream/milk just before serving. It still turned out great and was super easy! Recipe survives well with substitutes or omissions: oil instead of butter, milk instead of cream, no mushrooms, etc. I used the food processor to chop all of the veggies fast and easy. Great recipe.

Glazed Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2007
I thought it was good and tasted traditional, but the sauce was too sweet for my husband. I will make it again with less sugar in the glaze.

Balsamic Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
I really liked this but my husband thought it was too much vinegar. Instead of using whole baby carrots, to shorten the cooking time I julliened carrots, so they only needed 7 minutes.

Pumpkin-Pecan Cake Roll

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
This was great! Even clumsy me could make a beautiful roll! I followed reviews and gently folded in dry ingredients to prevent over-mixing. Next time I will grease and lightly flour the wax paper. Its really important to chill the cake. Refridgerate over night for best results! Next time I will add a little lemon or orange zest to freshen it up. Great cake! Beautiful presentation!

New Red Potato Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2006
I love potato salad but never knew how to make it. This is my first one and it turned out so great! Per other reviews, I used mustard instead of milk and doubled the eggs, and made dressing in a separate bowl before pouring over. Its great!

Cranberry Sauce Extraordinaire

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
Use Food Processor! So much easier!!! I put fruits and nuts one at a time in food processor then after cooking processed again to get that pretty red color back. I added an extra orange and used dried apricots which threw off the color but cut the tart flavor and were FABULOUS! The pecans make this absolutely irresistable. Serving suggestion: on bagel, toast or crackers with cream cheese! Its awesome!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2006
Fabulous! I read other reviews and did not cook the noodles first. I only simmered sauce for 1 hour and refridgerated overnight. I assembled and refridgerated overnight again, then baked for a pot luck. I made half the sauce without meat, and assembled in two smaller pans (one vegetarian the other with meat per recipe). The vegetarian was wonderful, too. The subtle cheese flavors really stood out in the veggie one. Improves as leftovers. Its fabulous!

Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2006
MAGNIFICO! But, careful when using store bought croutons. Use only 3 garlic cloves in the dressing. The other 3 of the 6 listed are for croutons. This recipes is SO quick & easy and SO delicious! It's the best salad dressing I've ever had. Also good with anchovie paste (1-2 Tablespoons). Can use a little vinegar instead of lemon to get same taste. Serve with chicken breast or archovies on the top. I used Pillsbury frozen dinner rolls, crusty Italian. Fantastic! Fabulous! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Sushi-Inspired Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2006
Canned tuna is so much better with soy sauce especially in a "sushi" recipe.

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
It IS too sweet. But I still love it! Maybe we could use UNsweetened condensed milk and then add a little sugar, but not too much. Then it would be just as easy, but we could control how sweet it is a little bit more.

Sushi Roll

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
Don't dip your sushi maki in teriyaki sauce! Stir a little bit of wasabi in a little bit of soy sauce for dipping your sushi.

Perfect Sushi Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
You should not stir sushi rice too much, just fold it once gently and let the seasonings soak into the rice. Do not use too much vinegar or your rice will be sour!

Swedish Meatballs I

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
I usually don't like to open a can of soup for sauce, but this was GREAT!: Marla's meatballs, baked like Jessica suggested. Jessica's sauce, with Jimmy78's seasonings (minced garlic, black pepper, sour cream, sauteed mushrooms, easy on the horseradish to taste!). Paper towel drain and baked in sauce per Jessica. FABULOUS! It takes a while to make but is well worth the time! A+++

Thai Red Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2006
Definitely restaurant quality! But don't be fooled by earlier posts: 1 Tbsp is plenty of curry paste, if you're using the kind of paste I use! You might want to start less if you are sensitve to spicy foods. I recommend that you stir curry paste and 2 Tablespoons corn starch with a little bit of the coconut milk in separate dish, add to cooking vegetables and chicken, then combine the rest of the can of coconut milk at the end to make it easier to stir in a wok. I followed the suggestions in other reviews and added juice of 1 lime, fresh garlic, 1 tablespoon fish sauce, plus added minced/grated ginger, and plenty of black pepper and salt. I cooked the minced garlic in the oil for 1 minute before adding the chicken. Extra cilantro helps the flavor, too. It was fabulous with rice! A++

Garden Veggie Pizza Squares

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2005
This is a great appetizer! It's perfect! The red pepper looked beautiful! I also added black olives. The only thing I didn't like about it is that it becomes soggy over time. It's best to eat it immediately after the 1 hour chill time, when its nice and crispy. Very tasty recipe! I made it twice last week!

Artichoke Spinach Spread in Wonton Baskets

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2005
Great recipe! I wrapped the wontons and deep fried them instead of making baskets. It turned out wonderfully. I think I will try the dip with puff pastry next time. I used regular bullion (1/2 cube) and it worked out fine. Definitely a good recipe!

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2005
This is an AWESOME recipe! I didn't have alot of chicken, but I added 2 cups of brocolli. I didn't have enough mushrooms and tomatoes, but it turned out just fine anyway. I cooked the onions for 10 minutes instead of 2 and created a Rue. The sauce is so good. I needed a larger pan, and used rotini instead. What a delicious recipe! Will definitely try it again and again!
