Quick Yeast Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
I made these last night to go with our roast. True, the texture is different, sort of a light, spongy inside, but truly, I must say as a "roll" lover, these are lovely. My picky family loved them, the taste and texture, and the next day they are just as good. To preclude the "sticky situation" in getting them into the muffin tins, spray a metal spoon lavishly with Pam. It helps a lot. I only added 1/4 cup extra flour to this, and they were perfect. I also did 1/2 white, 1/2 wheat, with a bit more of the white. I also replaced the shortening with melted butter. I highly recommend this, as butter is both more healthy, natural and tasty!

Potato, Broccoli and Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
Well, I was short on things to cook for dinner tonight and made this b/c I had all of the ingredients. Sometimes necessity produces the best and most unexpected things. First, I read all the reviews and made the following changes, which I recommend. I sauteed garlic w/ the onion. I also used about a cup and a half of Velveta. I boiled the potatoes for 10 or so min, then threw in 3/4 of a bag of frozen broccoli and cooked together. When cooked, I pureed exactly half of the soup, returning it to the pot for a good combination of smooth and some 'bites' of potato and broccoli, which makes for an interesting soup. Not necessary, but I happened to have a can of broccoli cheese soup, so I added that, as well as 1/2 or so of sour cream at the end. I seasoned with white pepper and a few dashes of cayenne. Served with Bisquick drop biscuits. Just yummy, if not low fat. This will be a family pleaser and a great soup to take to new mommies or someone just out of the hospital.

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
I will join the throngs and say with the rest that this was the most lovely, moist, flavorful turkey ever. I can't imagine ever, ever changing my turkey recipe after this. This was even better than the maple turkey recipe on this site. Thanks for a great Christmas turkey this year.

Sweet Potato Cranberry Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
I'm so sorry to say, as this is my first negative review, that this was just beautiful in appearance but not to the palate. This was almost tasteless and nary a comment from my large Christmas crowd. I'm glad others have had good experiences with this. However, it did not go over well with any of us here.

Roasted Squash Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
I can't believe I'm just now getting around to rating and reviewing this soup. From the first time I made it, it has been my favorite. At the end of cooking, I add a pint of heavy whipping cream to give it a more creamy consistency. It is lovely. When I just made this I just used acorn and speg. squash. I also add several carrots that have been cooked till soft. You could actually add sweet potato or pumpkin to this as well. It would all work well with the flavors. Just work with what you have or what you can find. I think leeks in lieu of onions would also be very nice. I do up the curry and add a bit more cayenne and garlic. Just keep playing until you find your perfect flavor for your family. We tend to like things with a bit more kick and flavorful bite. This is great with baguette and a nice salad. Try it with the pear and roqfort cheese salad from this site (can't remember the proper name of that recipe, but it is wholly wonderful with this soup). Lastly, I much prefer this recipe room temperature, rather than heated. It is just my preference. It is also nice topped with cilantro.

Cranberry Orange Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2007
I just made this for Christmas gifts, as well as for my family. It is wonderful. Here is what I did based on reviews and it was just perfect: I doubled the recipe and this was perfect for 3 mini-loaf pans. I hand chopped the cranberries (blender is broken and don't have a food chopper), which I do recommend. Also, I added generous shakes of cinnamon and nutmeg, plus a generous splash of vanilla. Yummy!

Cranberry, Apple, and Fresh Ginger Chutney

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
I just made this to serve with rosemary chicken the other night. It is delicious, different and so lovely with poultry. Will make again. I did as written. Don't be afraid of the minced onions and celery. It is a wonderful flavor and balance. You will love it.

Roast Chicken with Rosemary

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
We thought this was absolutely delicious. I also added a can of chicken broth and many cut potato wedges to the pan. However, I am rating it a 4 because the breasts turned out very dry, even though I cooked them breast side down. I would love someone's secret to juicy, tender breasts. Will make again,by the way, hopefully with a newfound secret to non-dry breasts. Excellent served w/ cranberry relish.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
I have made this so many times that I thought it appropriate to finally write a review. As I have written on the top of my recipe card: This is especially wonderful! My modifications are per what I have gleaned from other reviewers and I think I have the perfect recipe. I do boil all in chicken broth (water w/ a boullion). I also add a few shakes of thyme, basil, & parsley and a shake of cayenne and use a bit of celery salt instead of salt. I don't use as much b/c the boullion is salty. I add several cloves of garlic, and 1 cup potato w/ the other veggies. The potato really does make a difference. Everyone is my family thinks this meal is such a special treat. Do try it...your family will thank you.

Citrus Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
I used this brine this Thanksgiving and it was lovely. I threw in a sliced grapefurit too. The turkey I made (Maple turkey from this site) came out juicy and tender. I will likely repeat this for Christmas.

Maple Roast Turkey and Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
Made this for Thanksgiving. It turned out very tender and lovely. I really didn't detect much of a maple flavor, but it just turned out very nice. I did brine the turkey the night before from a citrus brine recipe from this site... I know that makes a big difference in the juciness of the bird. I do recommend this and will likely do the same thing this Christmas.

Emma's Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
I just made these for my family this morning. Last week we tried the Classic Waffles recipe from this site, and all of us prefered this one. I did add the baking powder to the flour b/c I had no self-rising flour and it worked very well. They were crisp on the outside, fluffy and nice on the inside. We served these with sausage patties and topped with real maple syrup and cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving. We even topped it off w/ a little cool whip. I think this is the family favorite breakfast now. Thanks for sharing.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2007
This was outstanding. I used 3/4 crushed Cheese It's Crackers and 1/4 breadcrumbs, instead of just breadcrumbs. Did all else according to recipe. This is wonderful served with garlic, sour cream mashed potatoes and green beans.

Asian Fire Meat

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2007
I am about to go down and make this for the second time. It is truly one of the most wonderful dishes I have ever made. I seemed to incorporate all of the reviewers suggestions (adding chestnuts, ginger, a bit of baking soda to tenderize, xtra carrots, cashews..plus baby corn and bean sprouts & a bit of sherry). I served over coconut jasmine rice from this site. It is just lovely.

Thai Red Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2007
Well, I think I have found that "missing ingredient" in this recipe! I read all of the reviews saying it was missing something, so I went on a quest to find it. First of all, I saute'd the chicken in hot sesame oil, but regular sesame oil would probably be nice also. This added a nice kick and flavor. I added lots of carrots, cubed potatoes (a must), onions. Then I threw in a can of bean sprouts and a generous handfull of unsalted peanuts (yum!), but you could easily use cashews. I used a regular can of coconut milk, cilantro, 1 T fish sauce, about 1/3 t of corriander, 1-2 t sugar, and some s and p to taste. Here is the secret ingredient: a couple of dollops of creamy peanut butter! It gives it a beautiful satay flavor, and somehow balances out the spicy with a more smooth, peanuty taste. I would love to hear feedback on some of you who try this added ingredient. Made this way, I will certainly make again, over and over. My husband adored this! I served over asian coconut rice from this site (something else that balances out the spicyness). Delicious.

Scalloped Cabbage with Ham and Cheese

Reviewed: May 18, 2007
I just made this and had to come and give it a review. With the changes I made, it is really special. To this I added a can of corn. I also used a mixture of Velveta and cheddar cheeses. When making the sauce in the pan, I only used a bit of milk and threw in a can of Cheddar Cheese Soup. I added a few dashes of nutmeg, cayenne and onion power and black pepper. On top of the breadcrumbs, I did sprinkle paprika and parsley, as taken from another reviewer. Delicious and makes a lot!

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2007
Really nice flavors in this. I up'd everything a bit, except the oil, and did add some cornstarch at the end to thicken. Everyone loved this over mashed potatoes. Makes a lovely gravy. I also added red pepper flakes to spice it up.

Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2007
I have to add my review to the many here. Caesar salad is my favorite, and I have had my own standby for years. I ventured to try this one night for company, and all agree, this tops them all! My friend could not believe it had mayo, as it does not sound appetizing, but this recipe is truly amazing. I could eat this three times a day for weeks. The only thing I add is some red wine vinegar (to taste). Thank you for this wonderful addition to my recipe box!
