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.

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++

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!

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!

Asparagus Guacamole

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
This is great! I will definitely make this again. I used 12 oz. frozen asparagus, no green onions, and a generous amount of Adobo (salt/white pepper/oregano seasoning). but I think I will be a little more conservative with the garlic next time. Maybe press only 1 clove, then taste and add another if needed. Its really a very good substitute for guacamole. Ole! Yume!

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
Awesome recipe! I only had dry herbs and no dried cranberries and it still turned out great. I used chicken hearts and gizzards (1/2 pound) and I baked the stuffing at 350 for 1 hour. It was perfect not too soggy just as written! I had never made stuffing before but it was great!

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!

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.

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.

Banana Pudding II

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
This is really good. I didn't use a double boiler. I just used a normal pot with a thick, even heat distribution bottom and whisked continuously until thickened (5-10 minutes). I did not use butter or vanilla (forgot) and it was still really wonderful. I only used 2 bananas. Loved it warm with the vanilla wafer cookies. Will definitely make again. Super easy.

Easy Taco Casserole

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
This is good. I sauteed one onion in a little oil, then browned lean diet beef in the onion, drained oil, added 1 taco seasoning packet and water. Then I added the mayo tasted it and added chile powder and adobo to taste. I added layers of refried beans and of a mixture of 1/2 pack cream cheese and 1/2 cup sour cream. I used only 1 cup of grated cheese. I did not put the lettuce and tomatoes in the casserole, but put them on the side so that I could reheat it easily. I also served it with the "Asparagus Guacamole" recipe from this website. Great easy meal!

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.

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+++

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2012
I made a lot of changes to these bars to make them vegan and cheap enough to serve to hundreds of people. It is much cheaper this way and still very tastey! My recipe is as follows: mix combine dry ingredients separately: 2 c. quick cook oats, 1 cup spoon-measured flour, 2 T corn starch, 1-2 t cinnamon, 1/3-2/3 c. brown sugar. Mix well. Mix wet ingredients next: 1 c. water, 1 c. oil, 1-2 heaping T peanut butter. whisk together, heat to melt to mix if necessary. Stir together with dry ingredients. Add in raisins or other goodies. Spread into 9 x 13 pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Cut into bars.

Lemon-Lime Soda Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
I used sugar free strawberry jello and chopped 2 peaches and a handful of strawberries. I added the standard 8 oz pack of cream cheese and 1 cup boiling water and stirred it all together. Then I added 8 oz of cream soda. We'll wait for it to set up and see what happens!

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!
