Chicken Stew with Dumplings

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2007
Yummy yum yum. To simplify the cooking process, I went ahead and put the chicken ingredients in my new Westbend versatility slow cooker this morning to test it out. Then I made the recipe as instructed, except tossing the dumpling ingredients into the food processor first, then topping the stew with them as directed. This was super easy and the BEST chicken and dumplings I've ever had. I've been searching forever for this kind of recipe. We will put it on a weekly menu. I also saved out enough chicken for sandwiches tomorrow!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
I'm enjoying one of these with a cup of tea as I write. Absolutely wonderful, the perfect afternoon snack with the right amount of sweet and salt. Soft and chewy. I simply used 2 sticks of butter instead of the shortening and margarine, otherwise I changed nothing. Thank you for the recipe!

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
I don't use the word perfect very often but I've always wanted to make a great pizza and today I finally achieved that with this recipe. I did let it rise, then spread it out onto a deep cookie sheet. this made a large pizza with a nice thin but not dry crust. I was inspired to make pizza after visiting a highly rated pizza restaurant in Hollywood. I'm happy to say I was not at all disappointed by this recipe! I think our home made pizza was even better.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2008
My family said these were the best cinnamon rolls they've ever had. I made them up the night before, and put them on parchment paper on a cookie sheet and set them in the fridge. I went to sleep thinking of how gorgeous they would be baked up in the morning.... I got up, let them rise, and well, they all opened up into very lose pinwheels and were very funny looking. We decided next time to put them in a 9x13 baking pan close together. We decided I should make these every Saturday night for a Sunday mornig treat.

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
I used canned peaches, (2 24 oz.jars Del Monte Orchard Select) My kids were visiting, and this disappeared in about 5 minutes, we all gave it five stars! This will replace our old favorite. Thank you

Diane's Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
I made this recipe without changing anything. My husband came home after a very long and stressful day, sat down at the table, tasted these potatoes and his eyes lit up. Mission accomplished! I'm going to make this one allot. Thank you!

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
Yummylicious! This is so different, and quite easy to make. I must say, it makes me sad when some people change most of a recipe, then when it doesn't turn out right, they take away stars. I changed nothing and give it five stars. *For cooks wanting to try this recipe however, I might cut the salt in half next time. We love salt, but my hubby and I both thought less salt would take it over the top, that's the only change we would make. Thanks for bringing something new to our table!

Golden Rum Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
This is a very delicious cake. I was hoping for some kind of thick caramel glaze, but decided to trust the recipe. The glaze did thicken a bit when it cooled, but I loved that it was thin enough to penetrate the cake and make a rich gooey crust that was to die for. The cake is perfectly moist. I wouldn't change a thing.

Blue Cheese Crusted Filet Mignon with Port Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2008
Really good. I was looking for a way to cook some beef fillet tips I had. So I used those for the meat. The recipe was very easy to make. It reminded me of the bleu cheese topped fillet mignon we once had at Ruths Criss Steak House. Only MUCH more affordable!

Pesto Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
This was just wonderful. Our daughter and son in law stopped by un-expectedly for dinner, and we all gave this 5 stars. I normally don't make things from packages, but I wanted to try the Alfredo mix to try the true recipe. However I did make my own pesto, (basil, walnuts, olive oil. This is a keeper! Thanks for sharing.

Gingerbread Boys

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
These are the best gingerbead cookies my family has tried, hands down.soft, but made nice little gingerbead boys. I followed bakers suggestion to use only large eggs, my dough rolled easily after flowering the board and rolling pin. I did use Molassis instead of dark corn syrup. We had our first gingerbread cookie party with our little grandsons today, we had fun making the cookies and smelling them bake. It made the Christmas season very special for all of us!

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
My husband and I loved this recipe. I followed the advice of another reviewer, and chopped the rosemary and added that and lemon juice to softened butter, and rubbed that under the skin of the game hens. I'll make this again. it was very easy and pretty to look at on the plate.

Pat's Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
The dumplings were just right, easy to make, I did use my food processor. I do wish I would have added more water since I live in the desert my dough is often dry, nonetheless, even though the dough was a little dry, the dumplings turned out perfect, I'm going to use this recipe from now on.

Grandma's Applesauce Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
Delicious! If this is what they ate during the great depression, the great depression was not as bad as they say! I was out of raisins so I used dried cherries, I chopped them first. How delicious! One thing I made a little mistake on, was the cake looked nice and golden brown, so I didn't test the center,and it was a little under done in the center. Another 10 minutes would have done the trick, it's a wonderfully moist cake, but it may need a little more time.

Easy Beer Bread Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
I liked the idea of giving this as a gift, so without ever trying it, I made 4 batches, I put 3 of them in quart jars, tied some ribbons with hearts on them around the tops and gave one to each of our grown kids for Valentines day. I made one loaf for my husband and I and we loved it. All the kids said it was some of the best home made bread they've had. I didn't have any italian seasoning, so I used Emeril's recipe that he calls "Bam" Wow! It really did kick it up a notch to borrow from Emeril. The butter is a must. My second loaf is in the oven now, thank you!

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
Wow! My husband made this for us tonight. Although instead of shallots he added the zest of one lemon, and 2 cloves of garlic, and added that to the seasonings, and made it all into a paste with the olive oil. Spread it onto the chops and seared them. Absolutely wonderful, the sauce went well over brown rice also. Will make this a regular for lamb.

Cream of Tomato Gorgonzola Soup

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
Loved this! I'm going to have a hard time going back to plain ol tomato soup, espcially because this was so easy to make. I had all the ingredients on hand, served it with grilled provolone sandwiches. I had half an onion on hand so I chopped that up with the garlic and sauteed them in a little butter, then added them to the soup. The flavor was fantastic!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
I made a special trip to the store to make sure I had the exact ingredients. By the time I got home it was too late to use the slow cooker, so I tossed it all in a pot. I had leftover roast chicken. This was THE best chicken tortilla soup I've had. I'ts so easy too. Thanks!

Curried Brown Rice Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
There's a party in my tummy! I had leftover brown rice that has been made into something wonderful. What I like about this recipe is it's versatile. I didn't have some of the ingredients so I used a can of mandarin orages instead of apples. dried cranberries instead of raisins, red onion, pine nuts. Only had real mayo and no yogurt so I used sour cream. The curry powder is ingenious here. I did throw in a tablespoon of Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. I even thew in a half a can of black beans! Absolutely Amazing!

Pork and Green Chile Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
I cooked this as per directions, except I pre-cooked my own brown rice in the rice cooker and put it in at the end. Just wonderful! Our grown son stopped by and when he tasted this, he gave it ten stars and took a Tupperware container home with him.
