Quick and Super Easy Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2008
I've made this twice and both times I've had great results. Both times I've added a bag of frozen veggies and used leftover chicken. Also if you add more broth (I think I added about 40 ounces) you get more of a chicken and dumplings soup. For those with leftover dough make biscuits with it! This is definitely an easy recipe base that will stay in my rotation. Thanks!

Baked Potato Skins

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2011
This is a great recipe. I didn't measure the spices or cheeses, just eyeballed them. I used 5 potatoes instead of 4 and 3T of oil was still a bit much too much. My boyfriend was so excited to have potato skins for dinner! I used turkey bacon and extra sharp cheddar. A good use for the potato "middles" is just to toss with oil, salt and pepper and bake, it is a bit like home fries.

Greg's Southern Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
This was my first attempt at buttermilk biscuits and these turned out pretty great. I think I either worked the dough too much or not enough as they didn't turn out as flaky as I would like but that was definitely due to me not the recipe. The only change I made was to use butter in place of the lard and bacon drippings. I will be trying these again very soon, thanks for a great recipe! Edit - Made again 11/17 with 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and 1 1/2 cups white flour, did not have as much luck, maybe it needed more baking soda or powder, not sure. Still were good though.

The Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
This was my first time making banana bread and it turned out great! Only made a few changes - 1/2 cup extra virgin coconut oil instead of butter and I only used 1/2 cup of sugar (1/4 white & 1/4 brown). I used three bananas, I didn't bother to measure them out. It was perfectly cooked after 55 minutes. I will try adding walnuts next time and maybe make muffins. Thanks!

Cincinnati Chili I

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
I thought this was great as did my boyfriend who probably eats Skyline about once a week! He did agree it was a little different but liked it all the same. Couple of changes - no onion, boiled the meat in the stock and tomato sauce rather than browned, added about 1 tsp of garlic powder, 2T of cocoa rather than the chocolate, less cinnamon probably 1/2 tsp as it is not my most favorite spice. I also used ground turkey and chicken stock rather than the beef. Next time I will use my immersion blender to get a thinner consistency. Thanks!

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
Like everyone else I made some minor changes - butter instead of margarine, no chips, added vanilla. These were very good. Next time I will cut back on the amount of white sugar, I reduced it to about 3/4 cup but I still think it was too much. I am looking forward to trying them with different ingredients, thanks for the recipe!

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2008
The name says it all, easy! A couple of changes - used 2 pieces of whole wheat bread instead of the bread crumbs, used dijon mustard instead of regular yellow and used about 3/4 cup milk. I saw that other reviewers sautéed the onion before but I just diced mine pretty small and it was fine. Next time I'll add some garlic and try the bread under the loaf trick because it did get fairly greasy. My boyfriend was a big fan as was I. I will definitely be making this again.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
This carrot cake was wonderful. I made some changes based on personal preference and the other review- no pecans, 1/2 cup applesauce & 3/4 cup oil instead of all oil, 1 cup white & 1 cup dark brown sugar, added 1/4 t each - nutmeg, allspice & cloves. I baked it in a 8in springform pan for about 60 minutes. It was quite the hit. I have never made a cake from scratch, this will definitely be my go-to carrot cake though I think I will look for a different frosting recipe but there was nothing wrong with this one. For the reviewers complaining about the changes people make- Cooking is an art, not an carbon copy of someone else's creation. I, personally, enjoy reading reviews by others for inspiration. Even without the changes I made to this recipe it would have been great.

Curried Vegetables

Reviewed: May 24, 2007
This was a really good and easy recipe. I added coconut milk as suggested by other reviewers but only about 1/6 of a can as to not make it a soupy consistency but it would be good like that too. I didn't have eggplant so added 1/2 a head of cabbage and 3 small zucchini. The combination of spices really works and I added about a teaspoon of garam masala. I will definitely make this again, you can throw just about anything in it- cauliflower, potatoes, chickpeas and green peas sounds like a good combination for next time.

Chicken Korma II

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
This was just a marvelous dish! I can't wait to make it again. I didn't make any changes except I used low fat yogurt instead of full fat and added an extra tsp of garam masala. It is a bit labor intensive but it is really worth it in the end.

Portobello Mushroom Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2007
This was very good, I did make a few changes - increased garlic to 5 cloves, added cumin, used black and kidney beans and plain diced tomatoes. I served it over whole wheat egg noodles and topped with sour cream and a little mozzarella, it was a hit! My boyfriend who is an avid meat eater didn't miss meat at all in it.

7UP Winter Mint Sherbet Punch

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2014
Easy and delicious punch recipe! Made it for a baby shower I was hosting (with white rum on the side) and it was hit. I made ice balls with fresh mint and garnished the punch with it as well. Will definitely make it again, thanks!

Gary's Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
These were so good! I used about a third of a stick of butter, probably won't use any next time. I also added the garlic to the stuffing rather than the butter. My boyfriend liked them so much he ate all the leftover stuffing!

Dog Food Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
It really did look like dog food! It was a bit spicy so I will use less jalapenos next time but other than that it was quite delicious!

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
This was the first time I have ever made meatloaf and this was an easy and delicious recipe. The only changes I made were: fresh garlic for the mustard powder, less bread and no beef bouillon.

Basil Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2014
This was a great sauce, I made a few modifications- Half & half instead of cream which I used about 8oz + 2T of butter. Also, I threw everything in the food processor at once except for the olive oil, it didn't seem necessary to do it in 2 steps. Added more garlic because I always add more garlic :) Tossed it with fusilli, some of the pasta water and two large, diced, tomatoes. My boyfriend and I loved it.

Chickpea Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2006
I really enjoyed this recipe as did the rest of the people that I served it to. I didn't use black olives or onions but did add cucumber. It was light and the lemon juice and olive oil made a very nice dressing though I used a bit less than called for. I will use this recipe again- there are so many variations to try out!

Baked Penne with Italian Sausage

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2008
This was really good with a little tweaking - added about 4 cloves of garlic, basil, oregano, pepper, sprinkled the top with romano cheese in addition to the mozz and used spicy italian sausage. I made this as an early V-day dinner for my boyfriend and he loved it, we will definitely use this recipe in the future, thanks!

Spinach Enchiladas Verde

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
These were pretty good. I made a couple changes - whole wheat tortillas instead of corn, green enchilada sauce instead of salsa and I added mushrooms and onions. Next time I will try it with the green salsa to make a thicker sauce and maybe add some chicken or maybe even articokes! Also if you use canned mushrooms make sure to squeeze as much of the water out of them and if you put enough of the sauce on the bottom and sides of the pan they should not stick that much.
