Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
I have never made scalloped potatoes before. However, last evening the mood struck when I found this recipe. I made exactly as written (no substitutions or tweaking as is my usual MO). They were very tasty and tender. My family enjoyed them, too. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you.

Pear and Blue Cheese Pastry Triangles

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
I chose to make this appetizer because I LOVE blue cheese, I LOVE pears and I most especially LOVE carmelized onions. I made this exactly as written except using premade phyllo cups. I'm glad I did as it was a time saver. The filling was enough to fill 45 cups with some pear left over. They smelled so good when I took them out of the oven. Unfortunately, the teaspoon of blue cheese per pastry was a bit heavy handed. I liked them okay, but they were not the hit of my party as I had hoped they would be. :(

Chicken Potato Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
Having been sick with the flu for the past week, I needed something that was easy, quick and nutritious for the family. This recipe certainly did the trick. I used bonesless, skinless chicken breasts. Because of that, the cook time was not near that of the original recipe. Only complaint from family was that it tasted too much like Italian dressing. Next time I will halve the amount called for It was a tasty and easy recipe. This will definitely go into my rotation.

Greek Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
A 5 star recipe! The kids cleaned their plates, hubby was full of compliments and everyone enjoyed this tasty version of chicken. I only wish I knew an easy way to pound down chicken without making a complete mess of things, though. When I sliced through the chicken, however, I had beautiful pinwheels! I served with steamed green beans and rice. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks for submitting.

Butter Icing for Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
A very, very difficult icing to work with when following the recipe exactly. I then heeded other reviewers advice. Despite continuous stirring and leaving over low heat, the icing just crumbled when I attempted to spread it on my snowflake cookies. I ended up adding about 1/4 cup or more of cream and using the icing as a glaze. I then dipped my cookies or drizzled icing over the top. Although flavorful, I will not make again.

Bread Machine Pumpernickel Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
I don't know what went wrong. I made this bread exactly as written using the "optional" ingredients. My husband felt it had too much of a "rye" flavor but I think it's the caraway seeds that were too much (and I am a fan of caraway). It's an okay bread...made for decent toast but as a sandwich bread it was disappointing. I really wanted to love it based on all the wonderful reviews.

Dakota's Texas Style Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
I knew this recipe would be pretty "spicy" (too much so for the kids) so I only added 2 chipotle peppers. Are those sirens I hear?...Yep...this is definitely 5 alarm chili. Yikes, my burning mouth! LOL. It was good but not kid friendly. To save my kids I had to add the following to tone down the heat: 1 can tomato sauce and 1/4 cup of sugar. I also felt the chili needed salt so I added a few teaspoons of the kosher variety. I served with shredded cheddar, cilantro, sour cream and corn bread. Much better. Oh, and have an ice cold glass of milk at the ready to extinguish further "fires". Thanks for sharing the recipe. It was fun!

Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
"...Give us this day our daily bread..." I just found our daily bread recipe! Oh my goodness, this bread is just way too good! I wish I could give you 10 stars but you'll have to settle for 5. I would have taken a picture but it was gobbled up so fast! Thank you for this simple and simply wonderful recipe.

Kona Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
This was just okay for me. I made using boneless skinless chicken breasts. I was looking forward to the play of sweet against the salty with the added note of white wine. Unfortunately, all I tasted was the salt. If I made this again, I would reduce the soy sauce by half.

West African Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
I was so happy to find this recipe! I am one of he co-creators of the "Shrinking Chatter Safari through Africa" (found on the recipe exchange) and had been looking for a recipe to try out in honor of our trek. The heat of this dish is just right leaving a lingering tingle on the tongue. Very tasty and the peanut butter adds an extra depth of flavor that the whole family thoroughly enjoyed. I made exactly as written using olive oil for the veggie oil in the recipe. I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you for a wonderful recipe which will be a keeper in our rotation.

America's Favorite Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2008
Just wanted to share our version of this American classic: we like to add sliced pickles to ours. Hubby enjoys jalepenos in his. Sometimes, if the mood strikes, I even add a touch of worchestishire sauce to the butter.

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
What an easy and fun project to do with your children! My daughter and I made a whole batch for a party tomorrow. In additon to vanilla frosting we also used chocolate. I do believe they'll be the hit of the party!

Grilled Lemon Herb Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
I made these last evening for dinner. I was concerned about the amount of lemon juice thinking it may be too much. The only change I made was to use 1-2 tbsp. FRESH herbs (added rosemary and thyme to the mix)to the marinade. These were very good! I served with broccoli and acorn squash for a wonderful autumn meal.

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
I've never fixed pumpkin seeds any other way other than olive oil and kosher salt. I am really glad I tried it this way. Very good. Reminds me of the seasonings for original homemade Chex Mix. My kids and even the picky boy next door are loving these.

Amish Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
Kids LOVED these! I made almost exactly (I didn't have peanuts so substitued almonds instead). The only problem I encountered was that it took 12 minutes to bake as opposed to 8-10 as indicated. Minor issue as my oven could just be a bit "slow". My kids told me that they taste just like Christmas cookies. A very good cookie indeed!

An awesome cookie! Everyone loved them and we made lots of $ when we sold them at a yard sale. I had people returning to see if we had any more! This truly is a "fully loaded" cookie and I'm really glad to see it finally published!

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2008
A very good pita! I probably should have left in the oven longer to get mildly brown but they smelled so good that I couldn't wait! I thought I had enough flour on my counter for the pitas to rest prior to cooking, but they still kind of stuck as others have experienced. Minor issues that don't effect this 5 star rating. I will be serving with Greek Chicken and Easy Greek Cucumber Yogurt Sauce on this site.
