Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
This was tasty. I completely changed the recipe to suit my tastes, but I'll tell you how I did it in case you're wondering. =) I sliced three medium sized boneless/skinless chicken breasts into about three pieces each and put them in a big pot with enough water to cover them about an inch. I threw in three chicken boullion cubes, two spoons of diced garlic, a few shakes of parsley, oregano, pepper, and garlic salt. I brought it to a boil and let it cook about 7 minutes. While it was cooking, I took premade dough (I think I used albertsons buttermilk brand) and cut each biscuit in half, and folded it over with dried parsley rolled into it. (I just used the flat end of the knife to press some parsley in and folded them over.) Then I took the chicken out and let it cool, added the two celery soup to the water mix (I didn't drain any at all) and used a whisk to break it up, keeping it on medium heat: just almost boiling / near boiling. After cutting up all the chicken into bite sized pieces, I put it back in, let it boil for a min or two to finish cooking the chicken (pieces were almost done, just a bit of pink left) and then added the biscuits, tearing them in half as I went. I let it cook, stirring it now and again, for about ten minutes maybe, while I did clean up. ... The boys had never had chicken and dumplings before, and they LOVED this. I think it had good flavor and was very easy / low cost, since I'll use the chicken for another meal too. Thank you so much for sharing!

Hawaii Twist

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
I mixed and matched this recipe and made it rather my own. I used less pineapple juice, more coconut, added some ice, and added a bit more banana / sugar. (The bananas weren't very ripe, so it was a little bitter.) Delicious! And easy. =) Thanks for sharing.

Grandma's Gravy Recipe

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
I whipped this up tonight as a last minute fix for some pork chops and potatoes. This was easy to make, I had everything already needed for it... I used 2 cubes of beef bouillon It tasted pretty flavorful to me, though I bet 2.5 cubes would be good too.

Jam Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
I just whipped this recipe up in about an hour and a half, with all clean up and such. Here's the recipe I followed (from various readers input and what I had in my kitchen): * 2 cups all-purpose flour * 1/4 cup white sugar * 1/4 cup brown sugar (plus some extra for topping) * 3 teaspoons baking powder * 1/2 teaspoon salt * 3/4 cup milk * 1 tsp. vanilla * 1/3 cup applesauce * 1 egg * 2 tablespoons any flavor fruit jam I also put the jam in the middle (as some suggested) and it was delicious. I think the best way to do it is to mix it in a tiny bit (marble it) with a fork. That way it doesn't bubble up as much. Before baking, I also sprinkled a teaspoon or so of brown sugar on the tops. Just plain brown sugar. It hardened and blended in during the baking, BUT it tastes delicious. Gives it an extra kick with a little crunch and some sweetness, to balance the batter (since the jam resided mostly in the bottom on mine). These were very easy to make, and I had all the ingredients in the house, which makes it better. A little bit of jam bubbled up on the outside of my pan, but I just rinsed it under hot water, and scrubbed it right after I took the muffins out. It took maybe three minutes to clean, and wasn't that hard. Overall, this recipe is a solid 4. Tasty, but not amazingly outstanding. But I will probably make it again- it's easy and the men of the house seem to like it. =) Thanks for sharing!
