Baked Potato Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
I made this soup at the request of a young friend who has had their jaw wired shut due to an injury, but I don't think they're going to get much of it, it's too good! I followed all the directions, but omitted the onion at the patient's request and didn't realize the potatoes had to be pre-baked, but it only took an additional few minutes for them to cook. I also used fat free milk and added salt and pepper to taste. It did turn out very thick (probably because of the additional cooking time), but is easily rectified w/additional milk or water. This will be puree'd for the patient, who needs the extra fat and calories while eating only things that will fit through a straw. I'm adding this to my favorite soups! Thanks for the recipe!

Mini Cheesecakes II

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2008
Yum! I did make adjustments to satisfy our low carb diet by omitted the wafer and substituting the sugar with Splenda. I made sure the cream cheese was room temperature as others had suggested. I would also recommend removing the cheesecakes from the muffin tin about 10 - 15 minutes after removing them from the oven, once they've set, to prevent excessive condensation which is probably what happened to the reviewer who said the wafers were dripping with water. I cooled mine on a cooling rack. I served them with sugar free fruit preserves. Definitely satisfied our sweet tooth!

Bacon-y Bok Choy

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
With our efforts toward adding fresh vegetables to our diet, I'm always looking for new recipes. I had a half a head of Chinese cabbage and about 4 ounces of bean sprouts leftover and decided to modify this recipe with those ingredients. The flavor was very good, just the right amount of spice for my taste. Thanks for sharing!

Overnight Cinnamon Rolls I

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
I'll give these another try at a later date, but the initial run left a little to be desired. Going by the "golden brown" tops wasn't a good inidicator of doneness and they were slightly underbaked this time. The overall flavor was good and I did double the glaze as others had recommended - my family definitely has a huge sweet tooth. I did like the fact that they could be prepared the night before and baked the next morning - they did rise in the fridge and a little more in the 30 minutes to room temperature phase. I had to use a small wire whisk to dissolve the yeast in the luke warm milk/butter mixture as it wasn't dissolving with just stirring.

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2007
I made these for an Oscar party last night to honor the latest penguin movie. They were a huge hit with the other party attenders. I did mix about 1/2 of an envelope of dry ranch dressing mix into 8 oz of cream cheese and had enough to stuff way more than the 2 cans worth of black olives I had on hand. My daughter made an adorable platform out of foam board, colored paper and plastic wrap and attached the finished penguins to the board - it was difficult at first as the toothpicks weren't strong enough to poke a hole, so she pre-poked holes with a needle. I also used my mandolin to slice the carrots, also, which made the process go by much quicker and the slices were more uniform than when I was trying to cut them by hand. I also took the advice of other reviewers and pre-slit the holes for the beaks, and took slivers out of the larger olive for stuffing. A little time consuming over all, but well worth the kudos.

Fried Mozzarella Cheese Sticks

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2007
These were not at all restaurant quality following the directions as written and had no flavor. Will try again but will follow some of the other suggestions listed by other reviewers or just keep getting the frozen variety and deep frying those.

Japanese Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2007
The first time I followed the directions, frying them in butter, but the coating wasn't cripy enough for us and had a buttery flavor which we found odd. Today we fried them in our deep fryer, removing the basket so they didn't get stuck, for 12 minutes, then continued baking and basting as directed. This is a definite keeper and we will opt to use the deep fryer in the future.

Slow-Cooked Pork Barbecue

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2007
The cooking method is excellent, the pork comes out very tender and flavorful. The soda in the sauce however, while tasty, had an ill affect on my stomach.

Tammy's Tangy Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2007
These chops had an interesting flavor, but weren't crispy and took a bit longer than 2 minutes, possibly because I opted not to pound them down. My husband thought there was citrus involved and was so impressed he took leftovers for lunch the next day which is truly remarkable in our household. Teens turned their noses up, which isn't remarkable about new things around here. I served them with white rice, green beans and a salad and will definitely try them again.

Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2006
YUM! I wanted to use up some leftover pumpkin from Thanksgiving and came across this recipe. I followed the advise of others: omitted the water and monitored the baking time; I also halved the recipe as that was all the leftover pumpkin I had, and slightly decreased the amount of sugar. It was done to perfection in 70 minutes and was well received among the pickiest eaters in my household. This will be on our table again in the future! Thanks for a great recipe!

Sweet and Sour Chicken I

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
Excellent for satisfying our cravings for Chinese cuisine. Have been making this recipe for a couple of years now and I only have leftovers when I add to the amount of chicken in the recipe. We prefer to dip the chicken in the sauce, so I only serve 1/2 at a time, freezing the other 1/2 for the next time we make this. Reheat the sauce (50%) in the microwave and use a small whisk to smooth it. To cut down on the spattering we use our lidded deep fryer with the basket removed (coated chicken will stick to the basket) and fresh oil. A family favorite and frequent request with the kids' friends.

Caramel Shortbread Squares

Awesome! These were a huge hit at Christmas dinner with friends. Absolutely none left by the end of the evening with requests for more by our host.

Black Bean Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
I loved this recipe. We omitted the salt (high blood pressure) and tomato (allergy), used water instead of chicken broth (didn't have on hand), but the finished product was super with those small changes. Have made twice and served to company along with my standard turkey noodle - this one was preferred by the adults in the party, nothing was leftover.

Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
Not a huge hit with the teenage crowd at my house, but then again, they prefer the stuff that comes out of the blue box and that is a lot less involved. They'll stick with that, I'll go back to my baked version.

Pepperoni Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
I altered this recipe by using refrigerated pizza dough stretched/rolled out almost to jelly roll pan size, placed 5 slices mozzarella cheese and pepperoni down the long middle, then folded the two outside thirds over the center third and tucked the outside seam under the roll. Then brushed on 1 tbsp melted butter and sprinkled with italian seasoning, parmesan and garlic powder. Baked at 375 for 20 - 25 mins. Made two the first time with no leftovers, made three last night with enough left for one lunch. Makes a wonderful take along "fast food" dinner for our busy family of five (two teens, one pre-teen).

Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
Perfect! Hubby loved how moist this roast turned out and we both loved the sauce. Will use that sauce for a variety of dishes! Only one of our three picky eaters turned up their noses and we think he's a vegetarian, so don't take that negatively!

Saucy Chops II

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
My kids asked me to go back to cooking "the old way", Guess boring is better, at least at our house. My husband and I thought the flavor was okay, but the pork came out dry.

Easy Chocolate Covered Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2005
Yummy coconut macaroons, scaled down to 20 to use up 1/2 can of Sweetened Condensed Milk I had leftover, made just enough to add to other desserts I had prepared.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2005
Loved the topping! The apples turned out a little too sweet for my taste so will use a little less sugar next time, but otherwise this was a hit with the family.
