Cranberry Sauce I

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
I made the recipe just as stated. I was unclear on how long to cook the sauce once the cranberries started popping but ended up cooking it until all berries were popped and quite soft and the sauce was beginning to thicken. After pouring it in a bowl and letting it cool for a couple of hours, it was the perfect consistency. It did seem a little tart, so next time I will follow some other suggestions and put 1/2 cup orange juice and 1/2 cup water to see if that helps. It is definately easy, very tasty, and impressed my family at our Thanksgiving Dinner.

Raw Apple Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
Great tasting cake and smells wonderful as it is baking! I made exactly as the directions stated, with the exception of using Red Delicious Apples. Next time I will leave the 1 Tablespoon of milk out of the icing so it will be fluffier and thicker, but it did taste wonderful. It does remind me of an "old fashioned" apple cake. I am going to make it next week for our annual Fall Festival.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
This recipe gets 10 stars for "EASY". And, very good. I followed the recipe just as written, with one exception; I did not cut up my chicken breasts before cooking. I used the frozen ones, and just let them thaw in the refrigerator over night. I resisted the urge to add any liquid and was very surprised that there was plently of liquid in the pot at the end of 6 1/2 hours of slow cooking on low. The 2 tablespoons of margarine (not butter) and the juices from the chicken were sufficient to produce all the liquid needed. I sprinkled the entire package of dressing mix over the chicken and margarine and put the lid on. I had to cook a little longer because we were not home and got home a little later than I expected, but I could not tell that the extra 1/2 hour cooking time effected it at all. When I poked the chicken with a fork, it fell apart and basically shredded on it on with only a few twists of the fork. I put the entire block of cream cheese in the microwave for 30 seconds to soften it before I mixed it with the soup. I then added it to the chicken and let it cook on low while I cooked some wide egg noodles to go with the stroganoff. By the time the noodles were done, the stroganoff was ready to serve over the noodles. I severed with some steamed green peas, which my daughter mixed with her stroganoff and noodles and said it was really good. (I might mix the peas in with the stroganoff next time.) We ate this with some Pillsbury Place and Bake Crescent Round

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
Tastes very good and is easy. Recipe needs to be adjusted a little bit, however. If using a 13 x 9 dish, you need to use no more than a 10 inch tortilla, the 12 inch called for by the recipe will not fit in the dish. I used seven 8 inch tortillas, which filled the 13 X 9 perfectly, with maybe room for one more if I would have proportioned the filling a little bit better. My 12 year old daughter made this and did an excellent job. This is a good recipe for someone just starting to cook.

Cheater's Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
Surprisingly tasty and full of authentic Mexican food taste. The cheese and sour cream mixture blends wells as it cooks to make a creamy filling. The recipe does leave out the final steps. You must sprinkle the remaining cheese and olives over the top layer of enchilada sauce. This is a good pot-luck dish, as it makes a large cassarole dish full and a very pretty presentation.

Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
Quick and easy to prepare. One of the best flavored taco soups I've ever had. I topped it off with shredded cheese and poured it over tortilla chips.

Milk Chocolate Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
I've made the basic Karo pecan pie for over 23 years, but have been trying numerous different pecan pies with chocolate over the past 2 years. I HAVE FINALLY FOUND THE ABSOLUTE BEST!!! This pie is easy to make, browns very easy to make a wonderful presentation and tastes awsome! I made two last weekend for our church dinner and ended up cutting and eating one of them at home, hot out of the oven. Everyone who ate the pie loved it. You can't go wrong with this one. I will definately bake this pie several times a year.
