Chicken In Coconut Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
Loved this recipe. I was looking for a creamy sauce I could serve my son. He cannot have dairy. This was perfect. I had the ingredient on hand so didn't have to run out for anything. I did add a bit of chipotle powder but just a bit as I didn't want to make it to spice for my toddler. I think that was all I changed. We used the meat and sauce to make a chicken wrap. We filled the wrap with sweet peppers, cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes, and avocados. My kids were both asking for more.

Real Homemade Tamales

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
Thank you I have been searching for the recipe for the masa for tamales on the internet. I used to make them to sell. But it has been a while and couldn't remember if I used 1/3c of lard or 2/3. By the way I always tripled the amount of salt in the masa. All of my customers said it was better that way.

Poblano Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
It was easy to make. My children loved it and asked me to make it again. I substituted more poblanos for the jalapenos. They are much less spicey. I also skipped the butter in the sauce and whisked the flour into the half and half before heating it. I used precooked chicken instead of the chicken breasts. As for the salt, I salted and peppered the white sauce to taste before layering the casserole. Next time I'm going to make extra sauce so I can add a melting cheese to the extra and serve it over chicken breasts. Thank you

Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2013
Loved the recipe. It is very similar to an old potato soup recipe I made when first married. Yes as a previous reviewer stated the nutmeg isn't for a nutmeg flavor. It is to enhance the other ingredients. I makes a world of difference in the final outcome of the whole recipe. I did make changes to the recipe for 2 different reasons. 1 is allergies. The other is available ingredients. I skipped the onions because my husband is allergic to them. I also skipped the broth. That was because I didn't have any on hand. Because of that I increased the amount of broccoli by 4 ounces to make sure of plenty of flavor.

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
Wonderful potato soup. I haven't eaten it yet, because I'm waiting for the bread to finnish baking. But I have tasted the soup. It's even better than the potato soup I've been making. I did have to make some changes due to allergies. I subbed turkey bacon for the pork bacon. Since turkey bacon doesn't have enough fat I just tossed the bacon into the soup at the beginning. This way I could still get some of the flavor in the soup. I also didn't bake the potatoes I just diced them and put them in when I boiled the broth. I also mixed the milk with the flour before adding to the soup. When the soup thickened I then added the cream to the soup. My version of half and half. Thank you

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
Thank you we loved the soup. I made some minor changes. I cooked on the stove top not enough time to wait on the slow cooker. Made my own beans. Used ground turkey instead of chicken and left out the onions my since my husband is allergic to onions. I also used a taco seasoning on this site from Bob.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
I've only tried this in a soup but it flavored the soup very nicely. I did make a few changes. I left out the onion because my husband is allergic to them. I also left out the red pepper flakes because I couldn't find them in my cabinets. Other than that I salted and peppered to taste. I liked being able to leave out what my husband couldn't eat. I have always had to skip recipes that called for taco seasoning packets because of my husbands allergies to onions and MSG. Thank you To update I have now used the seasoning mix in other recipes and truly love the way it tastes.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2014
I made this today. It wasn't runny at all. Even though I added in 1/2 can of Solo apricot filling it wasn't runny. I did do as one poster mentioned and used my butter and cream cheese right out of the refrigerator. Maybe that is the difference between perfect frosting and runny frosting. It isn't cloyingly sweet either. Usually I scrape off the frosting and then eat he cake with a minimum of frosting. No need to do that with this frosting. Other than the apricot filling I didn't make any changes to this recipe.

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2012
LOVED it. I made this on the stove top. I left out the celery and chicken broth because I didn't have either. I also didn't have the shrimp. I also thickened it up a bit with some flour. I can't comment on authenticity as I have never had jambalaya before.

Baking Powder Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
My family loved the biscuits with sausage gravy. We were even able to make them dairy free. My son has dietary restrictions so we were really happy to be able to make this for him using almond milk instead of regular cows milk. Now he won't be missing out when every one gets biscuits and gravy.

Grain and Nut Whole Wheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
I know some people don't like it when others review recipes they have adjusted. But since I feel a truly good recipe can be adjusted to accommodate many different preferences here is my review. I LOVE this pancake recipe. I have tried many different whole wheat pancakes I have liked but this one I love. I did add 2tsp of cinnamon and vanilla. I also increased the sugar for my kids from 1/3c to 1/2 c. I subbed applesauce for the oil and used only buttermilk. I also left out the nuts because my son doesn't like them. Although I would love them so maybe next time I will add them. I forgot to add I never grind the oatmeal to much to bother with. This has never presented a problem in this recipe or any other breads I have made using oatmeal. Update my son has developed a problem with digesting dairy. We were able to make these pancakes by making the following changes. I used 1 Tbsp of baking powder instead of the 2 tsp of baking soda and 1 tsp of baking powder and used almond milk in place of cows milk and buttermilk. We still loved them just as much. It did however take a bit longer to cook. Because I was able to adjust the recipe to accomodate our dietary needs and still remain tasty I feel the recipe deserves 10 stars.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
I made it just as written except for two things. First I'm of the old school and I mixed the flour, cornmeal, and salt in a bowl separately before adding it to the liquid. The other change I would not have made, except my oven has gone on the fritz. The repair man said it will take up to two months to repair my oven, possibly sooner. So I cooked the cornbread in a cast iron skillet on the stove for about 30 minutes on low. My children loved it. I was very relieved to see that it turned out. If you do it on the stove make sure it has a lid and butter the pan after it is hot. Thank you grandma for a wonderfull cornbread!!

Get a Husband Brunswick Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
It was a wonderful stew. I had never heard of Brunswick stew before seeing this on line. I did add garlic to the stew and left out the pork because my husband is allergic to pork. And I also left out the onions also because of allergies. I also added more vegies to the stew. Then I read the review of a sountherner that said real Brunswick stew never has vegies added. So next time I may try it without adding the vegies. Thank you

Pineapple Orange Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
I gave this five stars because although I didn't make just like the recipe it helped me make what I was looking for. I wanted a pinacolada like pancake. So I used crushed pineapple and left the juice in. I also added 1/2 cup of sweetened coconut to the mix. I left out the oj and added only enough buttermilk to make it the right consistency. I cooked them at 250 degrees on the griddle. They took 7 minutes on the first side and 5 minutes on the second side. Only I'm not sure my griddle heats to the right temp. Any way my children loved them. Thank you for the help

Tomato Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2010
We loved the recipe. I used my own marinara sauce. I also used mozzarella cheese instead of the jack. I served it over whole wheat rotini noodles. Next time I'll make garlic bread and a salad to go with the meal. Since I already had the crumb mix I made extra chicken and this half I baked for 20 minutes instead of pan frying to lower the fat. I didn't have the breading falling of that I had with the pan fried ones. These extras I'll freeze for a quick dinner on a busy day. Thank you loved the chicken.

Mom's Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
Almost exactly like the baking soda biscuits in my 1937 copy of America's Cookbook the only differences were using sifted flour, 1/4c shortening instead of 1/3c, and 2 1/2tsp baking soda and 1/2tsp baking powder, and 1/2 tsp of salt. I guess people then didn't use as much salt as we do today. An option at the bottom of the recipe was included for richer biscuits using 1/3c shortening, just like in this recipe. My biscuits rose beautifully were layered like they should be, and for us quite rich enough. A key is to not over handle the dough and not twist your cutter. Although glasses make an adequate cutter they tend to seal the edges more. At least in my experience they do. Good luckk trying. It took me many tries to figure out just how much handling was to much and what was just right. Nothing can substitute for experience and desire to make good biscuits. By the way if your biscuits are not browing properly are you putting the biscuits closer to the top of the oven. This will help them brown in the amount of time given. Thank you

Chicken-Parmesan Bundles

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
Thank you for the great recipe and the boost to my confidence. I have never tried a recipe that called for rolled stuffed chicken. I have also never cooked with spinach before. It turned out great. It tasted wonderful and looked great. I did however use an alfredo type sauce instead of a red sauce. I served it along side of a quinoa pilaf. After such great success with this recipe I am now going to try chicken cordon bleu. I have always been to intimidated to make it before. I will also make more use of spinach a much neglected food in my house. Thank you so much.

Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
I loved the chili. I especially like that I can use frozen pureed pumpkin. The pureed pumpkin made the chili very thick which I really like. I left out the onions and peppers my husband is allergic to onions and doesn't like peppers. I then added an equal amount of corn instead. I also added 1tsp of cumin and 1/2 tsp of nutmeg. I don't know if canned pumpkin has salt added to it but since I do know the pumpkin I cut up and cooked down doesn't have any salt I chose to add salt to the chili. I didn't measure the pumpkin I used. I just cut up enough pumpkin to fill up the pot I was using and then cooked it down untill it was to the desired consistency. This way I just used one pot for the whole process. I also used leftover turkey instead of the ground turkey. Thank you for a wonderful recipe I will use many times.

Homemade Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2013
I tried this recipe for lunch today. Yes it is sweet. In future I may cut back on the sugar. Not totally sure though as my husband and children prefer sweet. I did make some changes. I did not have time to mince the peppers so skipped them. Otherwise my husband would not have eaten. He is allergic to onions so those were left out as well. I used precooked beef already seasoned. I also used powdered garlic instead of fresh for the time factor. In future I will use fresh as I prefer fresh garlic. I almost forgot to add I used bolillos instead of hamburger buns. As they are a bit chewier I chose to scoop out the center to help the meat stay put. Then I thought to cut short the simmering time and add the scooped out bread to thicken it. This way I did not waste the bread. Whether I do this again depends on the bread I use. If I use regular hamburger buns I will not. If I use chewy bread or rolls than I think I will as I like the way it turned out.

Original Nestle® Toll House® Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
Thank you for a wonderful cookie recipe. I substituted reeses pieces for the chocolate chips because my husband is allergic to chocolate. He loved them and asked for more. To prevent them from spreading to much I let them firm up in the refrigerater and then put them directly into the oven. I made them again after reading something on line. They turned out even better than before. All my chocolate chip cookies were spreading to much. Now I don't cream the butter so much and also refrigerate the dough. My cookies finally came out just like they should and not flat.
