4-H Corn Special

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2006
My husband loved it and can't wait to take it in his lunch Monday as leftovers. I found it a bit bland and will probably double the seasoning next time. Definitely a good dish.

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2006
This is the soda bread I remember making as a little girl. Perfect as is or with rasins. Not too moist or dry.

Teriyaki Finger Steaks

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2006
Irrisistable taste and flavor. I made enough for three and there was none left after my husband and I finished dinner. Perfect with rice and veggies.

Shemakes Instant Chai Tea

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
Chai is my preferred drink, even over coffee which I have quite a palate for. I was so excited to find a good instant mix recipe to give a go. I was unable to find vanilla powder so I switched out the powdered milk for french vanilla creamer, omitted the cardamon after seeing the price ($15 a 2oz jar) and added some black pepper (which is the trademark of a good chai). This will be going as gifts this hliday season. And once my husband tries it there will probably be a BIG jar going to work. He hates most drinks, but adores chai as well. Working in security he doesn't usually get to steep his tea and drink it hot, but this will fix that problem and have enough kick to keep him happy.

Cappuccino in a Jar

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
I think I've finally found the answer to over-spending on fancy mixes at the store. For the cost of a little can I can now make a big jar. I used Ovaltine for the chocolate drink mix as it was on sale in a big jar. I used half powdered sugar and half granulated to help keep the powder light so it wouldn't settle out the heavier ingredients. These are going out as gifts this year and I plan to make an "extra-dark" mix for my father with extra coffee as he likes cappuccino but thinks its too sweet and creamy. This is a perfect recipe to replace the store brands.

Chicken Breasts with Herb Basting Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
This is my new favorite chicken recipe. The whole house smelled good enough to eat, and the chicken is beautiful with te herbs covering it. Served over rice with steamed veggies, plates were spotless and leftovers vanished in lunches.

Down Home Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
Far superior to the fried chicken recipes I tried before. I substituted boneless skinless chicken breasts since we buy them frozen in 3lb bags and always have them on hand. Added a bit more cayenne since my husband usually complains the fried chicken recipes are "bland" and it came out nicely. cut them into stips to make chicken "fingers" and served with french fries.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
Just like the restaurants. My husband marked this one for me to make and loved it. He thought I had cheated and ordered take-out. Very creamy and flavorful. I didn't have a problem with the chicken being bland, and the leftovers vanished in his lunch the next day.

Cornbread Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
When you read this recipe you wonder how it could possibly be any good. And then you taste it. Wow! Unusual stuffing is moist and flavorful, potatoes are delicious, and the chicken makes a great comliment to finish off the meal. When I told my husband we needed ricotta for stuffing he thought I was nuts. He doesn't think that any more.

Ultimate Spicy Spud Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
This deserves a 5+. It is exactly like the Olive Garden soup that makes their soup, salad, and breadsticks my husband's favorite meal eating out. When I was looking for the perfect soup for the rainy week of weather we were getting I found this. It probably saved his co-workers alot of grouchiness. I used Johnsonville brats as they are his favorite. I also left half the skins on the potatoes to give it some depth and contrast. The garlic and onions were crushed and minced instead of processed to keep the cellular walls intact to preserve the flavor(over processing can break the cell membrane and chenge the flavors). Served with a crusty bread and garden salad its easier than waiting in line for 30mins at Olive Garden and just as fulfilling.

Maple Apple Cream Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
A very pleasing alternative to the normal apple pie. I had to check my syrup before starting as many pancake syrups contain no maple flavor or syrup at all. The first one was a bit light on maple so when I made another for Thanksgiving at my parents we added a bit of maple flavoring and it was perfect. My mom loved it and can't wait to impress the ladies at church at the next potluck. I used a mix of golden delicious and granny smith to give the filling more variety.

Chocolate Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
I think something is missing from this recipe, or maybe just some extra advice is needed. I tried it twice and both came out badly. The first looked set when I removed it but was drippy in the middle when served. The second was left in longer and even after my husband (who makes superb pecan pies) determined it "set" did the same. I was really dissappointed with this and it was a letdown at Thanksgiving when I tried to match the one my Opa used to make.

Basil Chicken Strips

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2007
The taste is very lovely. We paired the strips with rice pilaf and mixed veggies. They were great as leftovers the next day as well.

Bratwurst Potato Skillet

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2007
I was a little iffy on the combination of brats and asiany sauce, but it turned out like a dream. We used half oil and half dripping from the brats. This is definitely getting added to our summer menu.

Divine Summertime Chicken Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2007
I ha to cheat and tell my husband what was in these after he tried them, but they were great. We cheated and used whole grain sub rolls which we toasted on the flat grill. It was a perfect summer day out and this worked great with a glass of sweet tea. The leftovers were great as well. What a treat. You'd never guess it was cream cheese spread.

Chicken Honey Nut Stir Fry

Reviewed: May 5, 2007
This was great. Smells much more overpowering than it tastes. I was worried it would be so strong tasting it would be awful, but its just perfect.

Easy and Fun Peanut Butter Balls

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
Finally a recipe with the name peanut butter balls thats the real thing. I lost my recipe box at Christmas a couple years ago and needed to check the proportions on this recipe before I made them again. Wheat germ and coconut are definitely the things we rolled them in back in the 80's when I was a kid. They are great frozen as well. If freezing make them a bit bigger and server before solid throughout. Chunky peanut butter adds texture as well. Love them.

Garlic Cheese Chicken Rollups

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2007
My husband has been craving the fancy chicken rollups he sees at BJs, but there are too many for a family of two. This was the perfect answer and he didn't even mind that the cheese poofed out the sides. A definite favorite.

Fiery Pork Skewers

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2007
This was a nice change from the sweet pork recipes. We used onions, peppers and cherry tomatoes on our skewers and they were superb.

Honey Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2007
Every time I make this I adore it. With grey Poupon mustard there is just the right mix of sweet and zingy. I usually make extra sauce to cover rice and veggies too.
