Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2007
I brought these cookies with me when I was working the polls on election day -- all of the other workers clamored for the recipe! These cookies were so soft and wonderful... I used butterscotch pudding since that's what I had on hand. There was just a hint of butterscotch flavor to the cookies, but they still tasted yummy.

Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
I made this for a baptism luncheon (with muffins and fruit salad) and it was a big hit. I made it both "regular" and "spicy" (with green chiles and southwest style potatoes as other reviewers have mentioned). Since I needed this to be cooked when I got home from church, I pre-cooked the hashbrowns for 20 minutes at 350 degrees (mixed with the melted butter). I should have broiled it a few minutes to get them crispy, but they were done enough as is. Then I made the rest of the recipe, using 9 eggs per pan instead of the 6-8 others used. I also sub'd the ricotta cheese for cottage cheese. I did not season the regular casserole but did add coarse ground black pepper to the top of the spicy one so that guests could quickly see the difference between the two. I also saved a small amount (~1/4 cup) and sprinkled it on top. I then set the oven to start later in the day (a feature I've never used before!) at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. The casseroles were just finishing baking when we got home from church, and even pulled them out 5 minutes early because the edges were browning. Everyone loved them and went back for more. I served salsa with the spicy version. Enjoy!

My Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2007
Pretty good! This is a good low-fat/healthy meal, especially when you are dieting! I scaled this for 2 people and cut up the chicken breasts into bite-sized chunks. I served it over pasta and let it "rest" for a few minutes to let the juices soak in to the pasta some. Hubby loves cayenne pepper on everything, so he added a bunch to his plate (maybe an option for others to try...)

Beer Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2007
I regularly make beer pancakes, so I was looking forward to this cake recipe. I was very disappointed... it was too done (and I even adjusted the time to meet my oven's uniqueness) and it tasted too much like beer (maybe with an "off" banana taste. I tried it for several days, thinking it might get better with age, but I was wrong. Too bad, because I was really looking forward to it.

Baby Carrots And Brussels Sprouts Glazed With Brown Sugar and Pepper

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2007
A nice change of pace for a side dish. I couldn't get the liquid to reduce enough, though, so it was still watery. I did add a tablespoon of cornstarch, as someone else suggested. Also, I steamed the veggies while the glaze reduced, then added it all together to the pan for a few minutes to coat the veggies with the glaze. Yum!

One Bowl Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2007
This was not frosting! It was a glaze, at best. I tried thickening it, but then it just got too sugary. What a waste of good ingredients!

Golden Chicken Tenders

Reviewed: May 11, 2007
We really enjoyed this recipe. I added approx. 1.5 cups of frozen mixed vegetables to the bottom of the dish first, then the chicken tenderloins, then I sprinkled them with garlic powder and Mrs. Dash Original. Finally, I sprinkled about 2 cups of stuffing mix over everything and put a 1/2 stick of butter (mixed with 1 tblsp. chicken boullion) and another 1/4 cup of water (mixed together) over all of the stuffing. My six year old neice thought it was fantastic! Very kid friendly, especially with the mixed veggies added in.

Slow Cooker Macaroni and Cheese II

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2007
If my husband could only have one meal before he died, this would be the choice for him. If I've got this in the slow cooker when he comes home his eyes light up and I get an extra big hug, LOL! I make with no changes. Love, love, love it!

Modenese Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2007
As others have suggested, I used both butter and olive oil to brown the pork. I used 8 center cut boneless thin sliced pork chops and reduced the simmering time to 10 minutes (from 20). I put the broccoli in the steamer when I set the meat to simmer and it was done at the same time, perfect for sauteing the broccoli in the sauce. I served it with couscous. Rave reviews from hubby!

Easy Taco Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
A great weeknight "quickie" recipe. I used a packet of taco seasoning and the water, along with a 1/2 cup (ok, really two big dollops) of mayo, er, salad dressing (aka -- miracle whip). I also added a can of pinto beans to the meat mixture as it was cooking. Finally, I only had shredded sharp cheddar on hand, so I used that instead of a combo of cheeses -- still yummy!

Slow Cooker London Broil

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
Rave reviews from all family members... and so easy to make, too! I even make this in the summer when it's too hot to cook but my hubby wants a "meat and potatoes" type meal.

Honey Lime Fruit Toss

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2007
This is a nice mix of fruits and looks pretty in the bowl, but make sure you don't plan on leftovers as it disintegrates quickly into mush (especially the bananas!)

Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2007
I liked the method of cooking the chicken (with the cornstarch and spices), but overall this dish needs a little more oomph. I added about 4 Tbsp. of hoisin sauce and a tablespoon of minced garlic, but it still needed some more flavor. Luckily, my hubby eats everything doused in cayenne pepper, so he didn't really notice. Next time I'll dramatically increase the spices. Also, in my grocery store they only sell chicken breast in 3-packs, and each is about 8 oz. So, I used one package and had a lot more chicken than necessary, but this will be a great dish for leftovers. I served with brown rice and I used a bag of pre-cut stir-fry veggies (broccoli, pea pods, and a variety of other julienned veggies) to save some time.

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
This got rave reviews from my Christmas dinner guests and several went home with the recipe. I used crumbled blue cheese instead of swiss to give it a bigger flavor punch. It reminded me of a salad they make at Panera Bread called "Orchard Harvest Salad."

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2008
Wonderful!! Everyone raves when I make these! I swap out one cup of white flour with one cup of whole wheat, and I add a few tablespoons of ground flax seed, just to make it a little healthier. Comes out perfect every time!! I sprinkle some demerara sugar on top to finish them off beautifully.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2008
My neighbors just LOVE to see me coming with a loaf of this fabulous bread in hand! I use mostly light brown sugar instead of all white, and the flavor is just that much better. My toddler loves it and never suspects that those awful zucchinis are the source of such goodness. :)

Best Chicken Quiche

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
I liked this recipe. I followed others' suggestions and only used 1/2 a packet of onion soup mix, but I think we would've liked it better with the whole packet. Also, this was pretty "liquidy", even after letting it set, so I'll probably cut down the milk some next time. I used swiss cheese in place of grueyre, since that's what I had on hand, and I used one large can of chicken. We are looking forward to the leftovers today!

Pasta and White Beans Gratin

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
In order to help the dryness that other reviewers have noted, I added a beaten egg to the ricotta mixture first. Also, I used dried herbs as I didn't have fresh available. Oh, and I didn't have balsamic vineagar, so I used a splash of red wine and a splash of white wine vineagar. I did have to add a bit of salt and pepper to give it a little more "ooomph", too. I served it with fresh green beans and Italian bread. My husband loved it and was very impressed, but my toddler didn't like the ricotta. Also, I found that the timing worked out better if I put the pasta to boil in one pot and then sauted/simmered the onion/bean mixture at the same time. That way they were done simmering when the pasta was finished cooking, shaving 20 minutes off the recipe time. It wasn't worth it to me to save not having to wash one extra pan.
