Merenges

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2010
These were very sweet. I am undecided if I liked them or not. Also,they are a very delicate cookie and fall apart easily. I prefer a heartier cookie but thanks for letting me try something different.

French Breakfast Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
My boys loved these this morning! I have been meaning to make them for a few weeks, I don't know why I waited! They were excellent warm with a pat of butter. I tried them both ways---with and w/o the cinn./sugar topping and they were a bit bland w/o the topping but soooo good with! I think the topping makes them exceptional. Beautiful presentation, too, they rose really high. I did add more milk to the mix as it seemed dry and I also subbed the nutmeg for half tsp. vanilla as one reviewer suggested.

Raspberry Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
Made this several days ago to use up some raspberries. It was good but I think I didn't like them as much for the raspberries...personal like/dislike...blueberries are much better in muffins! (: Didn't make the streusel part. My boys wouldn't even try them so I couldn't get a second opinion.

Cabbage Beef Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
I thought this soup was excellent! I love soup, though, and I occasionally like cabbage if it is spiced well (and I got it on sale---its a very cheap and filling food!). My family was not so pleased---it smelled up the house, LOL. So I am the sole reviewer here as no one else would even try it. I am giving it 4 stars not because of the smell (cabbage is a stinky vegetable, no one's fault there) but because of the sodium. I only put two beef cubes in and only 1 tsp of salt. I did add a couple of dashes of hot sauce for flavor. I also a used a jar of pizza sauce instead of tomato sauce because that is what I had on hand and I added more water.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
This was 'ok', I want to try it again as I don't think the salmon we used was the best quality. Used Wild Caught Chum Salmon I got on sale. It was the first time grilling a plank of salmon like this so I will try again at some point. It was tasty but after awhile the after-taste got to you.

Fried Broccoli

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
This was basically a stir-fry method with olive oil instead of wok oil. But it was really good! Next time, I will play with the amount of red pepper spice as it was a tad too spicy for me. I also added chicken and baby carrots to the mix to take up some of the spice, so I really ended up with a stir-fry type meal! Will def. make again. My husband even liked it. Used fresh broccoli. Thanks!

Red River Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
Made this for lunch today, thanks, it was very good. Cut the amount of butter way down (I think I ended up using 2 tsp. since I was using a fatty piece of meat). Also, only had about a lb. of meat. Didn't add the onions as I don't care for them.

Sausage Biscuit Bites

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
I will have to try this one again. The bottoms of the biscuits burned. I think perhaps it was the pan I used. I will try again though.

Lemon Thyme Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
Made this a couple of days ago to compliment baked fish. It was very good, thanks! I will make again. My SIL gave me some fresh thyme and I used that instead of the dried. Ease of preparation, had all the ingredients on hand. Might have needed a little salt included in the prep. Thanks for the recipe!

Cheesy Catfish Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
I didn't really like this. I guess I just don't like fish in soup, personal preference. Also, the milk I used separated and it sort of looked like gruel. I had some catfish to use up and didn't want to make fried catfish, but thanks for letting me try something different.

Sour Cream Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
THese were sooooo good! I subbed buttermilk in place of the sour cream, and I halved the recipe just to try it...but I think they would be just as good w/ the sour cream. Excellent, my new blueberry muffin recipe!

Polish Egg Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
I have been wanting to try this recipe for several years. Theother day someone gave us a dozen farm fresh eggs and I needed to use them. I gave it 4 stars because 1. the directions don't say when to add the sugar (I did in the first step when prepping the yeast) and 2. It is a LARGE recipe, and when I say large, I mean industrial sized. I halved the recipe and thought the dough was taking over. But it made a very nice and tasty bread. My advice would be to halve the recipe and to it in two stages as I did. I am giving away as Christmas gifts and I kept a loaf for myself...beautiful presentation (I braided the bread as suggested in the recipe) and tastes great.

Crusty Potato Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
Very nice bread! Made by hand, shaped into two smaller loaves and baked on a baking stone at 350 for about 20 min., then I bumped temp up to 375 and baked for another 8-10 min. I think it was. Used for sandwiches today and it was perfect! Thanks!

Delicious! Made very pretty loaves, too. I appreciated the shaping instructions. My boys gobbled them up. I only had an end piece for lunch today. Thanks for the post!

Tarragon-Dill Grilled Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
Made this to use up some grapes. Didn't make the dressing, use mayo instead and grilled chicken leftovers. Very good---loved the combo of apples, grapes, dill, and tarragon w/ the chicken, a winner for sure! Thanks!

Big Batch Kris Kringle Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
A really great cookie! I used all milk chocolate chips instead of cranberries and white chocolate, but can't wait to make these with the cranberries etc. I used a really good vanilla and this was devine! My new cookie recipe (: Hubby gave 2 thumbs up and I think there are only four cookies left (I halved the recipe just to try it).

Ken's Tuna Salad (Thanks Barbie)

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
Wow, this was really good with Tabasco! I would have never thought to add that but I loved it! And I love the new name. My friend Barbie Attenborough would have gotten a giggle out of that! The Tabasco really kicks it up a notch! Smiles, ~Tan~

Apple Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
Taste Update: I was so bummed! No one in my house liked these. I thought they were fabulous, very moist & fruity, great with a thick pat of butter. I ended up taking most of them to my sons' school where I am sure they were better appreciated (: Original review: Mixture was very dry! I read through some of the reviews and only one person mentioned this. But I had the same problem with my mom's favorite muffin recipe and I called her and I had forgotten to write down the milk. Hers takes 2 cups of flour and she said to put in one cup of milk. So I am thinking 1/2 cup of milk per 1 cup of flour is a good ratio? I halved this recipe and ended up with 1 and 1/4 cups of flour so I put in about 3/4 cup of milk. We have been on a muffin making mission lately and the consistency looked about right. Also, halved the recipe and came up with 12 muffins so with the milk addition, this makes alot! Will update on taste...

Orange Pumpkin Loaf

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
Had a very spicy kick to it. I didn't add the raisins or nuts. Instead, I used a simple icing on top (about 1/2 a cup of pwdrd sugar with about a tsp. of oj). Nobody in my house liked it except my husband, which is really weird because he is NOT a bread eater! I liked it with my coffee this morning and the taste grew on me so I will bump up to 4 stars (: Made a very beautiful loaf that held up well when sliced and was very moist, I really did like the texture. Thanks for the post!
