Royal Icing II

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2013
I just made a tiny batch of this (thank goodness for AR's serving calculator!) for some old-fashioned oatcakes I found in Rock Recipe's blog. The cakes taste just like oatmeal cookies (but I didn't add any raisins or nuts because the kids don't like them) so I decided to look up a royal icing recipe I could size down to ice the small batch of cakes I made. I wanted something with a maple flavor so I added 1/2 tsp maple extract to the icing, hopefully it isn't too much extract. It is drying nicely right now though! Hopefully my daughter will opt for these instead of pop tarts in the morning!

Molasses Crinkles

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
I first made these last year with a bunch of other cookies to give to my neighbors at Christmas. We of course saved some for ourselves and ooooh boy were they good. I made them again last month for the teachers at my school and EVERYONE loved them! They are wonderful, wonderful cookies! Can't wait to make them again this Christmas!

Oh man these are SUCH sinful cookies! I made a huge batch for the holidays and they were gone gone in a FLASH. My husband, who is not a big sweets fan, LOOOOVES these cookies!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2007
This recipe is very similar to the one I make out of the Betty Crocker cookbook with my own alterations. I used ground turkey and reduced fat Jimmy Dean ground sausage, then poured a little Merlot into the meat when it was almost done cooking. I added about a cup more of Merlot when it said to let it simmer. I am like you, I like a good, THICK lasagna that does not fall when you put it on a plate. I used a full box of lasagna noodles and came up with about 2 1/2 to 3" of thick, cheesy, and gooey lasagna...JUST the way I like it! The main reason I selected this recipe was because not only was the prep method similar to mine but it took less time to cook than my Betty Crocker recipe. With the alterations I made this is a keeper! (Okay, it's a keeper without too!)

Wasabi Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2007
I had wasabi paste, not powder, so I just added that to the roasted garlic instead. The flavor was mild even though I only used 6 potatoes instead of 12. With the paste, the flavor just barely came through, which actually worked out just fine 'cuz otherwise my kids would not have gobbled them up! VERY good and definitely a make-again!

Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2007
EXCELLENT! I added a few good dashes of tobasco to the marinade and when I put the filets in the grill basket I topped them with a bit more of the marinade. My husband was very pleased, and even my kids ate and liked it! Served with Wasabi Mashed Potatoes suggested by another user and a mixed greens salad. VERY GOOD!

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2006
It takes a LOT to impress me, but this recipe did it! I marinated the chicken for about an hour (added some Fajita Seasoning to the sauce--recipe courtesy of Stephen Raichlen's book "How to Grill" cook book)prior to cooking, baked the breasts whole and then shredded them and threw them back in the pan and mixed with the sauce. Served with pepper jack cheese--YUM!!

Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Rosemary

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2005
I used the seasonings and mixed it with olive oil, then stuffed it under the skin of the birds, as well as inside the cavity. Used the lemons to squeeze over the top and inside before stuffing them inside. The sauce wasn't bad at all. This is an easy dinner and I will probably make it again!

Chicken with Mushrooms, Prosciutto, and Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2005
Not bad. But I think the chicken was a tad dry and the sauce could have used a bit more flavor. I think next time I will skip the butter and use olive oil, and rub the chicken down with it before wrapping in the prosciutto. I also recommend basting the chicken during cooking, and when it's done, reduce the sauce by half or so to intensify the flavor, as the sauce is missing "something"...hard to say what, but it needs a bit more flavor. Otherwise, a great, easy meal for a weeknight, as long as you get home early enough to cook it!

Moroccan Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2005
Too much spice in the sauce, not enough flavor on the chicken. My husband and I were not impressed. Especially with the chick peas.

Divine Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2005
Not a bad sauce at all, but I am more under the inclination to call this chili than spaghetti sauce. Add some jalapenos, chili powder and cumin and it's a hearty chili. It just wasn't tomato-ey enough for me.

Tomato Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2005
I had 3 relatively thick chicken breasts for this recipe, of varying sizes, and cooked it for 40 minutes, then put the parmesan on and cooked another 10. It was good, not as juicy as I would have liked...maybe next time I'll cover it with foil and bake it for the same amount of time. The flavor was good, but I added WAYYYYY more curry powder than called for, and also added salt, pepper, and curry to the breasts before pouring the sauce over. My husband said it was good, not great. Easy, though, which earns a few stars in my book!

Tangy Rosemary Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2005
Uhm....no. Boring. We used boneless, skinless chx breasts and my husband said the chicken was tough (try covering it in foil if you do bnless/sknless chx for the first half or more of cooking) and the sauce had little flavor. I didn't try the chx, but tried the sauce and thought it was b-o-r-i-n-g! It needs more....EVERYTHING! Cayenne, brown sugar, worcestershire, more flavor in general. It tasted like vinegar and tomato sauce. Sorry, dear, but next time I'll use one of Steven Raichlen's recipes...y'know, the KING of bbq?? Now that man knows how to make a sauce! We won't be trying this again. Big disappointment.

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2005
These were pretty good! Nice and juicy! I added the worchestershire sauce as most recommended, but I would have done it anyway because I add it to just about everything I make, even cole slaw dressing! My husband said this one was a keeper, and even my kids ate it, which is pretty darned imprressive!

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2004
My husband LOVED these..."So much richer and creamier than usual" he said. I agree, but I think I may reduce the sour cream next time. I could definitely taste it next to the potatoes. I messed up and added the butter before putting it in the pot, but it turned out fine. I added just a little bit of broth to thin, so it was just a little thicker than we like when I put it in the crock pot. By the time it was done it was the perfect consistency! Went just perfect with our roasted Prime Rib and Stir fried broccoli and carrots for Christmas dinner!

Chicken Pot Pie II

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2004
This gets 5 stars because of the easy prep when premade piecrusts are used! I've never been good at homemade crust, so Pillsubry was my best friend tonight! I cut up the chicken before cooking, and added poultry seasoning to the broth. I added a bunch of fresh ground salt and pepper to the milk/broth mixture, too, so it had more flavor (might add more poultry seasoning or fresh herbs neext time). I didn't have mixed frozen veggies on hand, so I diced some carrots and threw them in. It is much quicker than Betty Crocker's recipe, so I will use it the next time I'm in the mood for pot pie but don't have much time!

Barbecued Beef Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2004
Very good! I would maybe substitute brown sugar for white next time, and maybe add some ketchup to give it more of a "Barbecue" flavor. All in all, very good, and a great alternative to pot roast for a chuck roast!

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2004
WHOA! Cool the spices a bit, dude! I'd say maybe 1/4 bottle tobasco, not the whole thing, if you want this to be palatable without a pitcher of water on the side! Flavor's good, but the spiciness is out-of-control!

My Chili

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2004
Can we say, "Zero stars"??? Aftter adding practically half a bottle of both cumin and cilantro, this was still the most tasteless chili I've ever made! I'll be sticking with my mom's recipe, thank you very much...it may be more work and takes longer, but the flavor is at least worth it!
