Garlic Ranch Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
Delicious! I love all the garlic in this recipe. I wrapped the chicken breast in thick cut bacon and baked in the oven for about 40 minutes and then broiled for a few minutes. I added Havarti cheese immediately after removing from the oven. If I wasn't low-carbing it, this would make a great bacon-ranch chicken sandwich. I think the bacon and cheese makes this a 5 * recipe. Thanks Trudi!

Jeanne's Chocolate Kiss Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2007
These were good and fudgy. The first batch in the oven ended up raw in the middle, and I increased baking time to 15 minutes, but my cookies were larger than 1" diameters. I added about 2/3 c. finely chopped pecans and used the caramel-filled Kisses. Very good. Thanks Jeanne.

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2007
I must say that this recipe is fast and easy, but I wasn't crazy about the flavor. It just seemed bit bland to me. Like others, I added sauteed onions and sprinkled the top with seasoned bread crumbs prior to baking. I don't think this one was worth the fat and calories. Thanks anyway, Melissa!

Southern Potato Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
This was great. The only change I made was to substitute 1/4 c. chopped dill pickle for the sweet relish and add a little of the dill pickle juice. It's addictive! Thanks Bobbye!

Chicken Noodle Soup II

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
This is so good...perfect for someone needing a little comfort. I made my own chicken broth seasoned with poultry seasoning and parsley, and simmered the chicken breast for about 30 minutes. I omitted the corn as I'm not a big fan of it. I cut my noodles in dumpling squares rather than strips. Thanks LaDonna!

Sunflower Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2007
This is great (I can't wait for lunch to have my chicken salad on a croissant with fresh lettuce and tomato). I added about 1 tbsp. mustard and a few diced scallions. I also used fresh parm instead of cheddar and only added about 1/4 of a cup, and I substituted pecans for the sunflowers. Thank you Brenda!

Pork Fried Rice for Two

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2007
I had a serious craving for fried rice and this recipe did not disappoint! I doubled the recipe and am glad that I did. I marinated the pork in the Chinese Five Spice, about 1/4 c. brown sugar, a splash of soy and a about 2 tbsp. rice vinegar for about 45 min. I used green peas instead of broccoli and added egg. I love the fennel seed in this recipe and my house smelled wonderful while I was cooking. Thank you Laura!

Scrambled Eggs Done Right

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
Yum! The mayo added a really nice flavor. I didn't add any butter, just used a non-stick cooking spray and the eggs were great. I added lots of black pepper and that was all they needed. Thanks WHATSHISFACE!

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
I was pleased with the flavor of the meat of this recipe. Like others, I placed the patties in a casserole, covered with the gravy (I browned the flour with the drippings) and baked at 350 for about 40 min. Thanks Kelly!

Whipped Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
These little cookies are gems! I followed the recipe except I added about 1 1/2 tsp. of vanilla extract,2/3 c. finely chopped pecans, and, like other viewers, dipped them in chocolate. Mine didn't fall flat as others did, but I inverted my cookie sheets and baked them on the other side so I don't know if that helped. I think that next time, I'll skip the chocolate because they detracted from the wonderful flavor, but I think that the pecans were a nice addition. Thank you William!

Zippy Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT omit the curry powder! The flavor is subtle but does so much for this recipe. In making this, I didn't use any oil and didn't need to even though I used lean ground beef (I actually even drained it after browning). I sprinkled the ground beef with flour while browning rather than using cornstarch. I added chopped celery to the beef and used seasoned instant potatoes to save some time. The pie turned out great and the leftovers are even better! Thank you Laura for the best shepherd's pie I've ever had!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
Mmmmm! I brought these to work and people were fighting over them. Thanks to all who suggested doubling the frosting. It was out of this world. I followed the recipe exactly except I used to 9" rounds to bake, added about 1 c. of chopped pecans to the filling and also added a splash of lemon juice to the frosting to bring out the tang of the cream cheese. I've never tried the original but if it's anything like this one, it's got to be good. The only problem was they came out a little dry, but with the frosting it wasn't very noticable. Thank you Marsha!

Hot Cheesy Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2006
This is heavenly! As suggested, I added some artichokes and 1/2 c. parm in lieu of 1/2 c. of the mozzarella. Also, I chopped the spinach up a bit before wilting. Everyone loved it, including my sister-in-law's (supposedly arthritic) dog who jumped up on the table and started munching! Luckily I have more of the ingredients so I can make another batch! Thanks Lisa!

Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2006
Yum! I added an extra 8 oz. cream cheese, increased the sugar to 1 1/3 c. & added an extra egg (I like SINFULLY rich cheesecakes!) I baked mine for about an hour and 10 minutes since there was extra batter and I cut the sour cream mixture in half (two cups seemed like a LOT) I took this to work with me today and everyone loved it. Nice easy recipe and very delicious. Thanks Evonne!

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
Let me preface this review by stating that I LOVE meatloaf. However, I was disappointed in this recipe. I deviated only in adding freshly ground black pepper and glazing the loaf as suggested by another reviewer (2 tbsp. of ketchup, 2 tbsp. of honey and 1 tsp. worstershire) but the flavor, in my opinion, was merely mediocre. It is very easy, however and very simple. Thanks anyway Rempel Family!

Honey Oatmeal Bread II

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2006
This is such a nice light flavorful bread. Like others, I needed to add additional flour, about 1 cup. The only other change I might make is using an egg wash rather than honey for the top of the bread, as the oats didn't adhere as much as I would have liked. Other than that, this is the oatmeal bread recipe that I have been looking for. Thank you so much Leslie!

Chicken-Fried Steak Strips

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2006
We enjoyed this recipe. I seasoned the steaks with salt and pepper prior to coating them. I doubled it, using only about 1/8 c. of milk in the egg mixture, to which I added about 4 tbsp. of Franks Red Hot Sauce. I also added 1 tbsp. freshly ground pepper to the flour. I deviated from the preparation in that I coated the steaks in flour, then egg, then flour again, rather than the other way around. After cooking the steaks, I reserved about 2 tbsp. of the drippings which I used to make a cream gravy using about 2 tbsp. of left over seasoned flour. I created a roux and then added two c. of milk, 1 tbsp. Franks Red Hot and 1 tbsp. freshly ground black pepper. I let the gravy simmer until thickened and served it with the steak strips. The steaks were nicely coated, crispy & had a great flavor. Thank you for the recipe Jeanine!

Ramen Cabbage Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2006
Oh my! This is fabulous! I used both red & green cabbage, 2 sliced green bell peppers, 1/2 thinly sliced onion, 1/2 white vinegar and 1/2 balsamic vinegar. I didn't have sunflower seeds so I doubled the amount of almonds, which I had toasted. I brought this to a baby shower and it was the first thing to go and EVERYONE wants the recipe! Thank you Tamera for a great recipe!

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2006
I wasn't overly impressed with this soup, but it was easy. I steamed the broccoli separately as I didn't want the broth to turn green and based on others' reviews, halved the butter, added garlic and matchstick carrots after the onions sauteed, right before adding the broth. I doubled both the broccoli and cheese and added about 1 tbsp. freshly ground pepper. I also added a handful of shaved pecorino romano for a little sharpness. This is a quick and easy recipe, but it didn't do much for us. Thank you anyway, Karin.

Torrejon Oatmeal Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
If you like VERY dense breads you might like this one. I prefer a lighter bread and should have read the reviews prior to making it, and I might have looked for another recipe. It is good toasted, however, and it is easy to use. Thanks to cheapchick for her advice on using an egg wash and sprinkling toasted oatmeal (about 1/4 c.) on top of the bread. It did look nice.
