Fried Chicken with Creamy Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
Oh my gosh! This was sooo good! I was searching for a "chicken fried chicken" recipe and this seemed the closest to it. This recipe did not disappoint. I used boneless skinless chicken breasts, which I filleted to half their thickness. I sauteed them in 4 Tbsp. light olive oil for 5 minutes per side. then I transferred them to a covered casserole dish and put them in a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes while I finished preparing the rest of the meal. I did add 2 Tbsp. butter to the pan drippings before making the gravy. My gravy was not too thin, it reduced to about 1 1/3 cups when finished. I served this with mashed potatoes, biscuits and a tossed salad. I will definately make this again!

Chicken Flautas

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
I reduced the number of servings to 8 and added 2 oz. of sour cream to increase the moisture content. I also used about 6 oz. of salsa. I topped them with three stripes of taco sauce and another 1/2 c. of each cheese before baking. They were really yummy!

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
Pretty dang good! Very close to the cookies from Nino Salvaggio's Marketplace. Next time I will use the second smallest disher that I own and then roll the dough into a ball and then flatten it with the bottom of a glass before baking for 12 minutes. I may also cut the white sugar by 1/2 c.

Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
I was short on chicken broth, so I made up the difference with water and chicken boullion (as suggested by another reviewer). I also added 2 t. of parsley flakes (from my Fanny Farmer cookbook) and used 1/2 t. of black pepper and did not add any salt.

Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
I thought this was really yummy, like a custard base with french toast on top. A couple people thought it was too sweet. I was able to fit more bread slices in the dish by cutting them straight across instead of on an angle. I had six slices that wouldn't fit into the pan , so next time I will slice them thicker. I did not have light corn syrup, so I just used 3 t. water to thin the syrup. Next time I will increase the vanilla and decrease the syrup.

Golden Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
Perfect for a chilly night! I did not add the salt (I tasted it and did not think it was necessary). I added a 16 oz. package of frozen califlower to it 'cause it wasn't chunky enough for me after the potatoes cooked down. It was a good addition. I will add more black pepper next time.

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
This was as close to perfect as I've found! Good flavor, not too watery and the veggies were still intact. I soaked the peas overnight and then rinsed and drained them. I then added 2 14.5 oz cans of chicken broth and 1 can of water. I had to simmer the ham bone for 2 1/2 hours to get it to fall apart like it should. By then the peas did not need blending, they were mush. Good mush. I will definately make this again and again!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
Wow! My taste buds are still singing! We really liked this. I added green onions at the end, just for some color. I used San-J brand Hot & Spicy Szechuan Stir Fry & Marinade for the hot sauce, since I was pretty sure that the recipe was not calling for 2 T of Tabasco Sauce. Next time I will double the sauce if I use four chicken breast halves. I only used two this time it seemed like the perfect amount.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
Very good! I fileted the chicken breasts and sauteed them for 5 minutes per side. Next time I will use half olive oil and half butter for sauteeing. I will also cook both sides of the chicken and then remove them and keep them warm while sauteeing the mushrooms, as they prevented the second side of the chicken from browning adequately. I will return the chicken to the pan when adding the liquids. The amount of vinegar was perfect! I will continue to dredge the chicken in flour before cooking, as I feel that it adds that succulent texture that I'm looking for in this dish.

Baked Corn

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
Awesomeness! I served this with a sweet and spicy BBQ chicken and savory cooked spinach. Everyone had seconds! For anyone who is uncertain...you definately drain the corn.

Sausage Barley Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
Yum! We really liked this! I used hot italian sausage, doubled the carrot and used about 1 cup cooked barley. My package of barley said to cook it before adding it to soups, so that's what I did.

Grilled Sausage with Potatoes and Green Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
This is very tasty, especially for such minimal effort! It was a little peppery, though. I have made this many times, but with more veggies. My alterations: 1 lb. green beans, 1 lb potatoes (4 avg. size), omit salt, 3/4 t. black pepper, omit oil, omit butter. I make this in a dutch oven at home, too.
