Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
This has become one of my favorite meals. Served with either rice noodles or jasmine rice and you cannot go wrong. I've used coconut milk and a couple of times even refrigerated cream of coconut. Also, I use red curry paste instead of curry powder, but have gone the curry power route as well and the results were just as good. Yummy! Thanks for sharing.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
These pretzels were fantastic! After sending a few to school w/ my teenaged daughter, I suddenly had more-than-usual stop ins from her friends and flat out pleas to make them some :) I toss them in a melted butter, garlic, salt, parsley combo mix that is gobbled up with quickness.

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
This was very good! I used blueberry and raspberry - 50 minutes was a bit long for these berries and they ended up quite mushy, but the flavor was absolutely wonderful .. next time I'll try cooking for more like 40 mins & see how the berries fare. I didn't have baking power after knocking mine into the sink (drat!), so I used self-rising flour with no ill effects - just remember to leave out the salt as well as the baking power if you make this substitute as self-rising flour has both added in. Thanks for sharing!

Sourdough Bread III

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
I can't believe *I* made this! This recipe gives you one amazing loaf - w/ a thick, flavorful crust outside and a light, fluffy bread tucked away inside. Although I used a young starter (only 5 days old), I got a distinct sourdough flavor for my effort. My only deviations from the recipe as written were to (1) break the dough up into 2 loaves & bake in loaf pans for 30 minutes each @ 375 and (2) I brushed olive oil over the tops & sprinkled w/ diced onion. This recipe will be around for a long time - can't wait to try it once my starter is even further established.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
I made this bread after scoring 2 giant bunches of overripe bananas from the grocery store. The only modifications I made were to add 1/3 cup chopped walnuts to the batter and some to the top of the loaf before baking; I used 2 disposable 8X3 loaf pans - baking at the recommended temp for 45 minutes, giving me perfectly sized slices for snacking on this yummy, dense banana bread. I also dusted the loaf pans with sugar after buttering, for a slightly sweetened crust. Fantastic recipe!

Slow Cooker Split Pea Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
This one passed the kid test. Even the picky youngest one loves it, although the word 'pea' is never used in conjunction with this meal. It's the "green soup" the kids request. I'll admit the look is never appetizing to any of us, but we've come to trust the taste. Very good!

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
I wish I could give this more stars! I couldn't find the quick cook rice called for so I used Mahatmas Long Grain & Wild Rice. The recipe calls for reserving the spice packet to be mixed with the roux, but since Mahatmas combines the rice with the spices I couldn't. I just cooked the rice, spices and all, and added it to the soup. I added onion, carrots, corn, a dash of garlic powder and the flavor was sooo good! Last thing: I mistakenly grabbed half/half instead of heaving cream, and still the soup was perfectly thick. And delicious! You cannot go wrong with this recipe. Try it!

Navy Bean Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
I never seem to have ham on hand when I want to make this soup, so instead of ham I've used smoked sausage with very good results. Delish! Served with Portuguese Sweet Bread from this site, it makes for a great rainy day meal.

Slow Cooker Pork Chops II

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
My mom makes a version of these that my little sister and I have always loved. But. Now that I have this recipe, I also have a secret: mine are better than moms. Ssshhh!

Shirley Temple II

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
My kids, ages 7 to 13, raved about these. Whenever I announce we will be having these with dinner, I always get a big smile, wide eyes and a 'yum!'

Yum! I followed the recipe exactly as given, no changes necessary. The whole family enjoyed these.

Butter Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2007
I used this recipe for my son's birthday cake. The flavor was good, but, I, like others, wasn't overly fond of the heaviness of the cake. I probably won't make this one again.

Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2007
You may think the batter is too thick, but trust the recipe! I was tempted to add some applesauce to the batter after it was all combined, but resisted the urge and I'm glad I did. These muffins were delicious. The only changes I made were to use dried cranberry instead of raisins and I added about a 1/4 c. of flax for additional nutritional benefit. Great, guilt free muffins! Thanks.

Cowboy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2007
Personally, I really liked these. I think I could have eaten the entire pot myself. ;) Hubby liked them too. The younger kids on the other hand weren't fans. At all. So, these are relegated to the grown up dinners. Maybe with steak and mushrooms? Yum.

Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2007
These were good, but I thought the flavor of the chips kind of overpowered the flavor of the cookies. I'll make these agai, next time just reducing the amount of the chips a bit.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2007
I made up a very large batch of these to send with my husband to work one day for a potluck lunch and he says they were gone before he even got one! I've had similar results in the house. Everyone loves these. All I ever have is whole cloves so I crush between 6-8 to get the 1 tsp (for doubled batch) using a mortar & pestle. Great recipe. Thanks!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2007
So good! I've made these with & without the glaze and actually prefer them without. They're midway between cakey and fudgy and just made us all say yum. My 12 year old daughter made these on her own one night and aced them! She thanks you for a simple, yummy recipe too!

Bread Machine Bagels

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2007
I made these Saturday and the house is already asking for more! The bagels are not difficult to make at all. They do require some effort, but don't all good foods? I'll never buy store bought again. I followed the recipe as closely as my ingredients allowed. We didn't have poppy seeds, so I omitted those with no ill effect. Also, we have no cornmeal, so I just sprayed the cookies sheet with cooking spray and they came out beautifully. Thanks for a great recipe!

Good Ol' Alabama Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2007
My daughter and I love this tea. Make no mistake, this tea is heavy on the sweet! I've cut the sugar down to 1 1/2 cups and *still* get a very sweet, tasty tea. Don't worry if you don't have orange-pekoe tea on hand - I've made this using 7 regular sized Liptons Natural Tea and the results were very still very good.

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2007
Good bread. I subbed olive oil for the margarine and prepared the dough using the dough cycle of my bread machine, pulled it out and let it rest for 10 minutes, shaped it for my loaf pan and allowed it to rise to 30 minutes before baking @ 350 for 30 minutes. This resulted in a perfect loaf of good , hearty bread.
