Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
first time making soda bread (although i read this isn't actually what the Irish call bread b/c of the egg and sugar)but we loved it. i made 3 loaves with my kitchen aid and added both golden and regular raisins to one. took 2 in for an office potluck and the raisin one was gobbled up in a few mins. BIG hit, will definate make again.

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
Eh...i was really hoping for something great b/c of the ease of use in the slow cooker, but even after adding some garlic powder and a dash of woretshire (i know i slaughtered that spelling) to the meat, it was just bland. meat was bland, sauce was bland. hubby loved it tho and said he'd "allow" me to make it once a month. i will probably try again as a base recipe, but add in my own preferences in the meat and sauce.

The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
I rated this a 4 only b/c I did not follow recipe exactly. Per other reviewers, I added 2/3 cup lemon juice and the zest of 2 lemons b/c we like it more tart. Also added an extra T of flour. Other than that, everything was the same. My hubby really likes it b/c it's not too sweet.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
these had great texture and rose up very nicely, but the taste wasn't all that special, pretty bland actually. it either needs to be sweeter or saltier. next time i will add a little bit more of either sugar or salt.

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
WOW!!! i've never made bran muffins before b/c i wasn't sure if my kids would like them. i want to eat healthier, so i decided to try these out. i made a few subs from what i had on hand. used applesauce instead of oil, 1/2 WW/white flour, used Raisin Bran cereal then added 1/2 cup cranberries to the batter, then sprinkled raw sugar on top. fantastic! both my boys have already eaten 2 and i just took them out of the oven 15 mins ago. will definately put these into my rotation. perfect healthy snack.

Chocolate Pretzels

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
one word: ADDICTIVE! i used the waffle pretzels with hugs and the kisses with the caramel in the middle. i accidentally grabbed the peanut M&Ms but it turned out so yummy with that peanut crunch. i took it to my son's 1st grade Christmas party and the kids chowed down. will definately make these over and over again.

Beef Barley Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
Really, really good. i sub'd stew meat for the ground beef and used a bouillion cube instead of granules, and just threw in a bag of frozen cherry tomatoes from my summer garden instead of the canned ones. everything else was the same. it did take quite a bit longer with the stew meat (10 hours was just right.) it's very hearty and filling and i loved it with a dollop of sour cream on top and some homemade bread!

Cranberry Crumble Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
this is really good. i had leftover cranberry sauce from thanksgiving to use up and i didn't measure, but for sure had over 1 cup. i think i will double the cranberry next time tho to get more of that tartness, but other than that, i followed directions to a "T" and threw it all in a 9x9 square pan (don't have a springform.) this is just slightly sweet, not overpowering at all. definate keeper!

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2008
the only reason i rate this a 3 is b/c it was very easy to assemble as i didn't skin it first. otherwise i was not impressed at all. it was very bland, even with basting. i doubled the liquids, but only used a TB of olive oil, and cooked a 4.5lb. bird on high for 4hrs. it was very moist, just no taste. and the sauce wasn't that great either. this recipe can't seem to make up it's mind on whether it's chicken adobo or chicken teriyaki. i'm going to try and salvage the meat and use the leftover chicken to make wonton soup.

Cheesy Baked Cauliflower

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2008
LOVED this recipe. i didn't leave the head whole, but cut up. other than that, followed the recipe exactly. i was getting bored with plain ole cauliflower and this hit the spot. however, my son who loves cauliflower, didn't care for it and prefers it plain with cheese.

Pizza Pinwheels

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2008
these did not taste good enough for all the hassle it took to assemble them. my kids liked them, but it was just a mess. i put the dough in the freezer and threw the pepperoni, sauce, and some cheese in the processor like some other reviews. but the dough was just coming apart and breaking everywhere and they didn't roll up very tight. i had doubled the recipe and i ended up just putting some of the sauce mixture with cheese on the lg end and rolling. still wasn't that great although easier.

Easy Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2008
these were pretty good. i split in half all these ingredients: 1/2 oil/applesauce, 1/2 white sugar/brown, 1/2 white flour/whole wheat, and added 1 extra apple and some nutmeg b/c we like it spicy. i threw some baby carrots, the apples, and pecans in the processor and pulsed till desired consistency so the kids wouldn't balk at the carrot pieces in it. i didn't use coconut b/c the kids don't like it and i didn't have any raisins. i think i would like these much better with those 2 additions, so next time i will add for me!

Chip Chicken Lollipops

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2008
tried this tonight with bbq chips and it was pretty good. my 2 boys loved it and my husband said it wasn't bad. i had problems with the chips sticking to the chicken. i think i may have put in a bit too much milk or i didn't crush up the chips enough. all in all, i will try again and with another flavor.

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
these are pretty good. i doubled the recipe, but not the topping and chopped up 2 whole granny smith apples and baked in a 9x13 as suggested by other reviewers. however, even with not doubling up the topping, i still thought it was too much. next time i will halve the topping so i don't feel like i'm eating a mouth full of sugar.

Honey Curried Roasted Chicken and Vegetables

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
LOVED IT!!!! i used chicken quarters and roasted them skin side down for 20 mins (as suggested by another reviewer) while the veggies (baby carrots and yukon gold potatoes) were steaming then put them in the pan, drizzled the sauce over all then cooked an additional 35-40 min. i also doubled the sauce, however it was a bit too much so next time i try this i will try it with just the original amount. i think i'll also try throwing it all in the crockpot like others have.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2008
This was alright. I'm not a big fan of bananas and neither are my boys (6 & 2) but I was hoping that with the addition of the chocolate chips it would be better. I made a few subs which might have been the problem. I sub'd applesauce for the oil and milk for the yogurt, used mini choc chips and put it in mini muffin tins, baked for 15 mins. We did not care for the results.

Zucchini Pineapple Bread I

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2008
I love this bread and I get so many compliments when I make it and requests for the recipe. I love to use the excess zucchini from my garden to make it then freeze it. It freezes wonderfully.
