Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
I've never made squash soup before and was pleasantly surprised at how wonderful this turned out. I added some curry as well as nutmeg for a little flavor, but other than that I followed the recipe as it was written. Making it again today to freeze!

Rich Italian Sausage and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
This is by far one of the best soups I have ever made! I followed the recipe with 2 minor exceptions. For the italian sausage I used Johnsonville Sweet Italian sausage and homemade chicken stock. I found this soup full of flavor and wouldn't change anything. I like to use the sweet italian sausage because of the basil in it.

Bird Seed Energy Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
These bars are good, I followed some of the other suggestions such as using 1/2 applesauce 1/2 oil and 3 eggs. I also added white chocolate chips and some dried cranberries. I wish I had used a jelly roll pan instead of a 9X13. The bars a very thick and took longer to cook than the recipe stated.

Awesome Chicken and Yellow Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
Whatever you do don't leave out the pimentos, it would be pretty bland otherwise. I think I'll try some of the other suggestions, such as adding the vegies later, they lost most of there flavor cooking with the chicken. I didn't find it neccesary to heat everything up in the oven, I just added the chicken and vegies to the rice and made sure it was hot enough that way.

Harvest Rice Dish

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
What a delightful recipe! Such a nice change to wild rice with the little bit of orange zest and cranberries. I used the ingredients listed but changed the cooking method a little. I sauted the rice, almonds and onions in butter until the onions were done. To this I added the cranberries, orange zest and liquid. To this I also added some chicken breasts, covered and baked for 1 hour. The chicken was nice and moist and picked up a nice flavor from the cranberries and orange zest. I will definately make this recipe again!

Orange Cranberry Biscotti

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
I've made this recipe twice now and they turned out wonderful both times, the only difference was the choice of orange liquor. The first time I made them I used Triple Sec and the second time I made them I used Grand Marnier. The batch with the Grand Marnier was superior by far. When I make these again I will bake sure to use the Grand Marnier.

Picnic Fruit Punch

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
Very good punch with a pretty dark pink color. I mixed all the ingredients except the ginger ale the night before the party. When it came time to serve, all I had to do was add the soda. Thank you for a delicious recipe that I will use again!

Frosted Butter Cutouts

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2008
Very nice cookie and adaptable! Instead of using vanilla pudding mix I used chocolate, and followed a previous suggestion and added the extra pudding powder to the cookie. I ended up with a mildly flavored chocolate cookie and delicious chocolate frosting. I topped them off with off with "Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips" Yummy! Thanks for the recipe.

Savory Onion Corn Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
I followed this recipe exactly and thought the sour cream topping was a bit much. It had a nice flavor with the onions, but if I make it again I would 1/2 the sour cream mixture or double the corn bread.

Easy 'Charro' Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
Nummy! These turned out just delicious. The changes I made to the recipe were minor. After frying the bacon I cooked the onion and sausage in the same pan and then added all the ingredients to a crock pot and cooked on high for 4 hours. I omitted the chili pepper and garlic and added a can of "Fire Roasted Chili Peppers" instead. Thanks for a great recipe!

World's Best Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
Very good, thanks for the recipe. The only thing I changed was to saute the celery and onions in a small amount of the bacon grease. I also used golden mushroom soup instead of regular cream of mushroom, because it's what I had.

Artichoke Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
This was a huge hit on new years eve, the only change I made was to toast the bread slices a little before adding the rest of the ingredients.

Chicken Chipulos

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
This is a great recipe that I will use over again! I was looking for something to use up some leftovers and extra cans in the cupboard and this fit the bill perfectly. Since it was a last minute decision to make I had to improvise a little bit. I didn't have quite the right amount of cheddar cheese, so I added some mozzarella to the top and I only had 4 whole grain tortillas, but they really seemed to work well. I think 8 of them would have been too much. The flavor was great using a 7 oz. can of mild fire roasted green chilies.

Banana Bread Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
I give these cookies a 5 star rating using some of the suggestions from previous reviews. I used 2 bananas, 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar and added 1 cup oatmeal. They turned out great! If you like a soft cookie, you'll really like these. I frosted half of them with a regular butter and powdered sugar frosting and the other half dusted with powder sugar. I think I like them with just the powder sugar the best, not so sweet.

Easy Sausage Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
Not pleased at all with this recipe. It was very dry. I've got the leftovers frozen (there were lots) so I'll add more broth to help it along. I won't use this one again.

Buttery Carrots 'n' Onions

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
Very good! My 80 year old parents enjoyed it as well as my 4 and 5 year old niece and nephew. I followed the recipe exactlly, except I used baby carrots (because that's what I had). It didn't change the taste, but I think it would have looked better if I had used larger carrots. I will deffinately use this recipe again, as will my Mom!
