French Baguettes

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2013
This bread is fantastic! Who knew it could be so easy to make such a fabulous baguette?!?! The dough was pretty sticky when I pulled it from the bread machine, but by the time it was ready to roll out, it was a dream to work with. It baked up to a lovely golden brown, and the texture was perfect. Thanks for sharing a great recipe :)

Garlic Bread Fantastique

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2013
I thought this was delicious! I loved the flavor the sage added. I did not find this to be overly salty, as others have stated- perhaps because I always use unsalted butter? It was terrific served with spaghetti and meatballs. Oh, I also made my own French baguette from scratch, which surely made it all the more tasty- can't beat fresh, homemade bread :)

Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2012
This is quite good! A wonderful comfort food. I pretty much followed the recipe, except I did not boil the celery with the potatoes and carrots. Instead, I sauteed it with the ham, onion and green pepper. It added a nice bit of crunch to the finished product. I also added two cups of cheese, as I love cheese, and thought the cheesier the better. That meant I added a bit more milk as well, although I am not sure how much- I just eyeballed it. Finally, I put all of the ingredients (except the bread crumbs) in a big bowl, and tossed it with the sauce to coat. Then I put it in the casserole dish, topped with the bread crumbs, and baked. YUM! Very tasty, and an excellent use of leftover ham :) Nest time, I may add some garlic, and maybe some peas. I also think this would be good with Swiss cheese! But delicious as is!

Super Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2012
I suppose I should review this, considering I make it every. Single. Weekend! Sausage gravy is typically something I enjoy but don't love, but this one is EXCELLENT! I do as many other reviewers suggested and doubled the flour and milk. I can't imagine NOT doing that, as this is very meaty even after doubling the sauce. I have found that it needs a dash of salt to suit our tastes, and I am very generous with the pepper. I serve this with big, fluffy buttermilk biscuits, and it makes for a hearty, filling breakfast that sticks with you for awhile. This is perhaps my boyfriend's favorite breakfast ever, so I make it Friday night (show's how exciting my life is, eh?!), along with the dough for the biscuits. Then I reheat it on the stove as I bake the biscuits fresh. The BF eats what is left on Sunday. Works out great! Thanks for a simple and awesome recipe :)

Cooky Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
These are awesome!!! I am in the midst of Christmas baking, and I stumbled upon this recipe in my search for something that is a little different. These fit the bill for my needs. They are soft, yet have a lovely texture to them. I followed the recipe exactly, as I wanted a non-chocolate cookie, but I could totally see adding some chocolate chips, and will probably do just that when I make them in the future. I only baked two cookies, as I just wanted to try them, and freeze the rest to bake off when it is closer to Christmas. I am glad I only baked the two, as I can only imagine how many I would eat if they were sitting in the kitchen right now! Thanks for a wonderful recipe LINTONBJ :)

White Chip Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2012
These are incredibly yummy! They are soft and very moist- the orange flavor very delicate and just a lovely complement to the white chocolate. I love them!!! These will be featured on my holiday cookie plates for sure, and I have no doubt I will be making them often :)

Day-After-Thanksgiving Turkey Carcass Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2012
In my house, "leftover" stuffing (and bacon...and wine) is much like Santa Claus, in that it doesn't exist! So, I used a box of sage-flavored stuffing mix. Other than that, and decreasing the rice to 1 and 1/2 cups (which we thought was plenty), I followed the recipe as written. I debated on what to rate this. My daughter and I thought it was okay, while my boyfriend said it was "really good". Ultimately, I guess I just prefer to make a stock out of the carcass first, rather than make a soup with it. As the cook, I found it a bit off-putting to fish bones and skin out of my pot of beautiful ingredients, and I think it is simpler overall to just make and strain a broth. This was a nice enough meal for a chilly winter's night, and I am glad I tried it. Just not so sure I would make it again. Thanks for sharing the recipe :)

Paula's Bread Sticks

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2012
Great recipe! I followed it exactly, except I did not have any sesame seeds. It was quick and easy, and the dough was a dream to work with. Everyone loved them. Next time, I will make them into garlic bread sticks to serve with pasta :) Thanks Paula!

Mock Champagne

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2012
I made this tonight to share with my daughter- we had the house to ourselves, so we had a rare Girls Night, with munchies and chick flicks. Then we decorated the house for Christmas. It was a fun evening, and this drink made it even more so. We really enjoyed the light, crisp taste, and my daughter loved that it was bubbly and looked just like champagne. Thanks Mary48- this drink made our night into a celebration :)

Pico de Gallo Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
This is THE quesadilla! There is no other! Man, is this ever delicious- exactly what I have been looking for! I did do two things differently. First, it seemed to me the chicken itself would benefit from some seasoning. So, I rubbed it thoroughly with a chile lime rub. Then, because I have a big aversion to handling raw meat (it grosses me out so much, I can't eat it later!), I cooked it in the oven and then sliced it. Also, I brushed the tortillas lightly with olive oil, assembled the quesadillas as directed, and baked them in the oven until crispy and lightly browned. Oh. My. Gosh! Just exactly what I wanted- perfectly seasoned, perfectly spicy, perfectly cheesy! Thank you so much for this recipe Mr. Cortez- I will be making this one a LOT :)

Tonkatsu / Katsu Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2012
I followed this exactly, and wouldn't change a thing! I served it with tonkatsu, and it really made the dish! It is tangy and flavorful! I was remiss in telling my boyfriend that the sauce was meant to dip the pork in, so he used it on the pork, the potatoes AND the corn, and loved it on all! I will be making this often...the possibilities are endless as to what it will be good with!

Tonkatsu - Asian-style Pork Chop

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2012
This was okay. I seasoned the pork chops with salt, pepper and a little garlic powder. I dredged them once, let them sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes, then dredged again and let sit another 30 minutes or so. The panko really sticks to the chops that way! I required one more egg to be able to finish all the chops. I served this with katsu sauce, which really made the dish. These were good, just not really the WOW dish I was expecting to serve. I will probably make them again, but tweak it to suit my tastes a bit more. Maybe marinate in some soy sauce or something. It just needs something more to give it the boost from a good meal to a fantastic one! Thanks for sharing the recipe- I love the concept :)

Southwestern Cauliflower and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2012
Great soup! I used turkey broth that I had made with the turkey carcass from Thanksgiving, and also the leftover ham from that day. Great use of those things. I had bought cauliflower a couple weeks ago, and blanched and froze it, and it worked wonderfully in this- not mushy at all. I did used more potato flakes than it called for, as I wanted it a tad thicker. I added a healthy amount of salt and pepper (I made my broth salt free, so it needed some). Like others, and like I do with almost all soups that call for cheese, I left the cheese out and allowed my family to add it their bowls. I also chopped up a scallion for the top, as we like onions around here. Very, very easy and quick dinner, perfect for this cold winter's night! Thanks PAPERDOLL2- this one is a keeper for me :)

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
YUM!!!! This is fantastic! The only thing I did differently was I made my own crescent roll dough from scratch. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as written. I tried it hot out of the oven- delicious! I tried it cooled to room temperature- amazing! I tried it after it had been in the fridge overnight- scrumptiously delightful! I would not change a single thing about this recipe (although I do recommend making your own dough- much better than store-bought :) ) This is a MUST try!!! Thank you CandelB- this is totally awesome :)

Golden Crescent Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
This is very good! I did not make it into crescent rolls; instead I used it to make a sopapilla cheesecake. It worked perfectly for that purpose- a lovely crust! I will be trying these out as rolls soon :)

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
I have had this recipe saved for the longest time, and I finally got around to making it. I followed this to the letter, and I can't fathom any changes I would possible make. Let me tell you a little something about me and meatballs- I have a torrid love affair with them. The ultimate in comfort food, I love them on top of spaghetti (all covered with cheese), on hoagies, and, if they are good enough, all by their lonesome. I made these knowing they were going straight into the freezer, but I had to try one. Then two. Then my kid wandered into the kitchen, and we talked shoes and boys, all the while stuffing meatballs in our faces. Yes. They are THAT good. I tried them on spaghetti- awesome. Next, I will create a meatball hoagie the likes of which would make an Italian Grandma weep. I love, nay, I ADORE these meatballs! Thank you lovestohost- there may be other meatballs in my life from time to time, but I will secretly be longing for these whilst I eat those lowly wannabes :)

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
I am rating this based only on the sauce, as I had some meatballs in my freezer I had made and wanted to use up. We all enjoyed this a lot! Very good! I did add some Italian seasoning and some crushed red pepper. It is good as is, or easy to make your own by adding whatever herbs and spices strikes your fancy. I will be sure to try the meatballs next time :)

Stef's Super Cheesy Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
Mmmmm-hmmmm! Loved it! I followed it exactly, only I halved it to make four good-sized servings. It was a big hit here- dee-lish-ous!!! Thanks STEFANY21- I will be making this often!

Thanksgiving Leftovers Croquettes

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
I made these tonight for my daughter and I. They are tremendous!!! I followed the recipe exactly- did not change a thing. Of course, these are only going to be as good as your leftovers are, so be sure you use the stuff you love! I had a bit of a problem with the first two I made, as they were a bit too big and didn't want to hold together (although they did- just barely!). So I made the rest a bit smaller. I can't describe how wonderful these are- crispy, crunchy; just perfect! My daughter asked if these can now be one of our holiday traditions. Yes ma'am- NO problem there! Thanks so much Pam- 3BoysMama...these are definitely a keeper! :)

Fried Broccoli

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2012
Three out of the three people I fed this too wandered back into the kitchen for more, and were sorely disappointed that it was gone. A ringing endorsement, especially for a vegetable! I followed this exactly, only I did use fresh broccoli. Quick, easy and different from the norm. Great recipe :)
