Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2007
I made this but just topped it with olive oil prior to baking....left off the cheese. I used the bread machine to mix the dough. I let it rise covered in my oven.

Spinach Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2007
We loved this recipe. I did add some chopped up chicken that I "nuked" in the microwave. I love the flavor of the filling. I used 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 flour tortillas for this recipe. I used the Texas Enchilada Sauce from this site and I poured it all on the pan because my boyfriend wanted it covered. Next time though I may just pour some of the sauce on and just serve the rest on the side. I absolutely loved the taste of the filling of these.

Texas Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2007
This sauce was fabulous. My boyfriend loved it and took the leftovers to the "girls" at the office for their lunch. I used the Spinach Enchilada recipe from this site as well as the Mexican Rice and had a huge hit for dinner and the day after.

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2007
Loved this recipe. I just eyeballed the jalapeno from out of the jar, next time might put just a little less in it but I loved the flavor. Made to go with Texas Enchilada sauce and Spinach Enchiladas from this site. All 3 recipes are keepers.

Strawberry-Mango Mesclun Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2007
This was very good and I will definitely make it again. I too used bottled balsamic viniagrette, used a Vidalia onion, and toasted my slivered almonds. Can't wait to share with all the girls!\

Rum Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2007
Tried this today and it's a keeper. I grilled sliced fresh pineapple, then poured the sauce on top of the pineapple(I added a little bit of coconut extract, I also used skim milk), then topped with mango sorbet. yummmmmmm. I may try it with brown sugar then next time I make it. But as I made it, it's fairly fat/cholesterol free yet decadent.

Strawberry Pie V

Reviewed: May 14, 2007
This was pretty good. I did find it a little too sweet, so if I make it again, I will decrease the amount of white sugar. The sugar in the Jello more than adequately will cover it.

Grilled Onion Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2007
This was great! I added some kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to the packet and cooked them in the oven. It was such a nice change from the traditional baked potato, loaded with stuff. This would be especially good tucked down into some hot coals/embers on a campfire. Thanks for sharing.

Chicken Vegetable Potpie

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2007
This was a wonderfully easy and delicious recipe. I did change some based on other reviews. First, I cooked my veggies in chicken stock with salt and pepper added to it. I added salt, pepper and Herbes de Provence to the chicken mixture. I used a rotisserie chicken (garlic/herb) from Kroger. And made a double crust. Also doubled the soup, one cream of chicken one cream of celery.

Pasta with Tuna, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Artichoke Hearts, Lemon, and White Wine

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2007
This was ok. For me it's one of those wonderful recipes that I can "wing". I used canned tuna, Orzo pasta, added tbsp of butter after orzo added to sauce and tossed then topped with toasted pine nuts. I sprinkled with a little parsley. For me it needed something green. Maybe at the very end (when just off the heat) toss in some fresh spinach that way it's warm yet not wilted.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2006
This was a hit with the girls at Bible study this morning. I simply sprinkled powdered sugar over the top as I had made mine in a bundt pan.

Two Tier Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2006
This was great but I made subtle changes which wouldn't really affect anything. I didn't have almond extract so I used Amaretto. Used a 8 oz block of cream cheese because if 3oz is good 5 more ozs would be killer. I used frozen fresh strawberries from earlier this season. They are fine, just don't have the crunch that fresh would. This is a keeper.

Upside-Down Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2006
This is great. I used a 9" springform and a 6" cake pan. Doing this helped to prevent the overflow problem but I still used a foil lined pan to catch anything seeping from the springform I cooked the 9" 70 mins at 325, 6" about 60 mins at the same temp. This is a keeper recipe. I may add additional complimentary spices next time I use peaches (I used frozen) for the cake. It's moist and I'll make this again. Thanks for sharing.

Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2005
I love the flavor of the glaze on the ham. Will have to wait til tomorrow to try out the gravy. I will keep this recipe for sure BUT, next time I will add a little fluid to the bottom of the roasting pan ie orange juice, pineapple juice etc. at the beginning of the cooking process. I will wrap up the ham in foil. I've always wrapped and this was a first unwrapped. It started turning dark early on in the cooking process and the first 2 layers of the spiral won't be served to guest...they're tough and crusty. Overall it's a great recipe. Thanks for submitting it.

Amish Friendship Bread II

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2005
Caramel Apple Friendship Bread - Here's something I did different I did to it today. Using this original recipe as the base, I added chopped apples, pecans, apple pie spice to the mix. Baked in 2 8x4 pans for about 60 mins. When cool I poured a Caramel Glaze over the top of it. On the starter recipe link on the recipe and it says at the bottom you can freeze this starter. I always do and it comes out great.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread II

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2005
Next time I make this (and I will) I have to turn down my oven by about 25 degs. The bread got too dark and even started blackening around the edges before the inside was done. I always lower my oven for cakes, and it slipped my mind today. I want it golden brown like the picture. I also may make smaller loaves.

Pecan Pie Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
This was a hit at a book study of ladies. Severely decadent. It's a keeper in my book. Next time though I think I'll make it in a 9x13 pan instead of the 10x15, to make it just a little thicker.

Dijon-Tarragon Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2005
I too made some adjustments on this recipe. I took the advice of others and dusted the chicken with flour and I doubled the sauce recipe. PLUS, after removing the chicken I deglazed the pan with dry white wine, after it reduced by half I added finely chopped shallots. After the shallots cooked for a few minutes I then added the cream. Instead of tarragon in the sauce I added Herbes de Provence, stirred then added back the chicken. I garnished the chicken with fresh chopped tarragon. We used the sauce for the asparagus on the side. My kids (10 & 12) loved the sauce and the chicken. They actually used the sauce to disguise the taste of the asparagus. This is a keeper recipe and I've shared it with friends. Nice and easy but definitely a show stopper.
