Chicken and Broccoli Braid

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
I'm sorry to post a poor review, but this recipe was just not for us. I like all the ingredients on their own, but together it was not a hit.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
This was an excellent dish. I used 2 cans of chicken broth instead of water/bouillon, and also added some carrots and sprinkled some rosemary for flavor. This was perfect, and everyone enjoyed it. It is more a chowder than a soup, very rich and hearty.

Penne and Vodka Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
We liked this recipe. I used bacon instead of pancetta because that's what I had, and also sauteed some garlic and onions in olive oil, thus eliminating the butter altogether. I halved the amount of pasta, but kept the sauce the same. That was perfect. I don't think there would have been enough sauce had I used a whole box of pasta.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
We liked these. I think they would have been better as regular cookies, though. The muffin pan gave them a soft brownie-like consistency, and I was hoping for something a little crunchier to offset the softness of the peanut butter cup. Great flavor though!

Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
This was awesome! I used a little less Blue Cheese Dressing--maybe about 1/2 C or so, and topped the pizza with some green onions for a little crunch. I also melted 4 TBS of butter and mixed with 1/2 C Red Hot and coated the chicken in that, straining the chicken before adding it to the pizza to cut down on any accumulated liquid. I also pre-baked the crust until set, then added the toppings and baked another 15 minutes or so. This kept the crust firm and crispy. We will definitely make this again, thank you!!!

Not YOUR mom's mac & cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
Delicious! I baked it, just because we like to top our mac and cheese with bread crumbs, and bake to crispiness. Thanks LTH!

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
This had good flavor and flakiness, but for some reason my crust was really soft in some places, and hard as rock in others. I want to try this again, though, because I think it has potential.

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
Sorry, this was not my favorite dressing recipe. It had an odd aftertaste.

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
These were absolutely delicious! I made the cranberry-orange version, and they were wonderful. I ate three of them myself within an hour of making them! You really don't need a food processor for these. They're actually quite simple to prepare.

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
We enjoyed this roast. I used half red wine/half water instead of all water, but next time I would use half beef broth and half red wine. I would also season the roast a bit before searing. Otherwise, we enjoyed it, and the veggies!

French Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2009
I really liked the flavor of the sesame seeds, but my bread completely stuck to the bottom of the sheet despite coating it with cornmeal. Next time I will use parchment paper instead of cornmeal.

My Favorite Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2009
This soup is a very good base for your own tastes. The only problem was that I had to add a few bouillon cubes, since my stock didn't come out very flavorful. I also added spinach, mushrooms, and green beans. My husband said this was restaurant quality soup.

White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
These were good, but super sweet. I used walnuts instead of pecans.

Original Nestle® Toll House® Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
This was like the perfect cookie! Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside! I omitted the nuts, and used 1 C coconut instead. I must have made large cookies, though, because my batch only made about 30!

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
This is my go-to slaw recipe, though I cut down on the sugar by about half. It's too sweet with all the sugar. I sometimes use dried onion instead of fresh, and red wine vinegar instead of white. Really good on pulled pork sandwiches.

Slow Cooker Carolina BBQ

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
We really liked this, although I found I had to adjust a few things...first, even though I used a 2.5 lb loin roast, there was not enough sauce to keep the pork moist, so I added about 1 C of chicken broth while the shredded pork was simmering on low. I also cooked on high for 5 hours, then shredded and cooked on low for 3 hours. Simmering it really helped the flavor. When I first shredded it and added the spices, it tasted like vinegar. So, the longer you can simmer it already shredded the better. I also seared my loin roast on the stove before putting it in the crockpot. This kept it moist. I served this on a hamburger bun with coleslaw on top, and it was quite a hit.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
This was one of the easiest meals I have ever prepared, and it was delicious! It's a great recipe to customize. I used chicken broth instead of beer, added some chopped green bell pepper and used frozen Southwestern Vegetable blend instead of the corn. It was very mild, and I would have added more spices had my 1-year old not been eating as well. But, this was something we could all enjoy, especially when served with tortilla chips (next time I'm using Fritos!, sour cream, and cheese.) Thanks Patti!

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
These were delicious even though I had to add about 1/2 C of milk to make the batter the right consistency (it was very "doughy" as written). I also used vanilla yogurt instead of plain which was perfect. Next time I would add more chocolate chips, but I look forward to making these again with different fruit/nut additions!

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
This was the easiest and best way I have ever made bacon. I typcially use the pre-cooked stuff because of how much I dislike frying it up. But, this makes perfect bacon without the mess! I used a cooling rack on top of a foil lined cookie sheet to ensure crispiness.
