Grilled Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: May 26, 2014
We made these tasty packets for our Memorial Day BBQ. The potatoes were delicious with a little carmelization and the onions were like butter. We will certainly add this recipe to our menu for future cookouts.

Oven Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
This recipe is SO GOOD! I have made it several times with wonderful results. If you have time, let the whole thing sit in the fridge for 1-2 days before serving to let the flavors really meld together. If you add hearty vegetables in the last hour of cooking, it is a complete meal in itself, but it is also fabulous served with rice or crusty bread.

Kielbasa Made Easy

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
I made this recipe tonight and it was very well received. I served the sausages on toothpicks with slices of pineapple, which pair well with the sweetness of the sauce. This review is only 4 stars because some tasters felt that the sauce was too sweet for their palates. A spicier sausage or the addition of red pepper flakes or hot sauce to the mix would add a little kick to balance the sugar.

Raspberry Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
This bread is very good. I put the whole batch of batter into my bread machine to bake (times will vary depending on your machine, but as soon as the bread scent reaches your nose, you'll know its ready). I substituted the raspberries with frozen blackberries, which came out well. I omitted the extra half cup of sugar, and the bread was still very sweet. As other reviewers have suggested, in the future I will try using white and brown sugar (1/2 c. white and 1/2 c. brown) and I will use a tsp. of baking powder. Another tip is to swap an equivalent amount of applesauce for the oil, which is lower fat and adds sweetness. In this batch of bread I added 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1 tsp. vanilla extract for additional layers of flavor. Quite good; will make it again!

Chocolate Bunny Treats™

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
We made these as Easter treats for family and friends! People wow over them. You can use plain crispy cereal and turn them any color you want (pink, blue, purple, etc.) by adding a few drops of food coloring to the marshmallow mixture before mixing in the cereal - use white chocolate or skip the chocolate all together. You can also make your own frosting using confectioner's (just use the recipe on the box) and add a couple drops of food coloring to tint it any color you like! You can also tint store-bought white icing. Try decorating the bunny with a pink body and a white tummy - super cute! If you don't have an icing piper, here's a tip: spoon icing into a ziplock bag, snip the corner off one edge of the bag (the bigger the cut, the larger the line of icing you will make) and squeeze the frosting in the desired design. Also, if you don't have round cookie cutters, the mouth of a cup works just as well - just turn the cup over and press it down to cut out a circle. I used a few drops of green food coloring and tossed it with flaked coconut to make grass, which I sprinkled around the bunnies along with assorted gummy candies and jelly beans for extra character. Any small pink or red candies make sweet little noses on the bunnies. Be creative, have fun! This is a great project to do with kids! Happy Easter and God bless!

Campbell's® Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
Green bean casserole was never our favorite dish, but this year I made it for Christmas and it stole the show! The key is fresh green beans. Of course, a little Asian fusion created by the addition of soy sauce is a big flavor booster, too. There are two ways to cook the green beans: 1) blanch the green beans in boiling water until slightly tender; 2) mix uncooked green beans into the sauce and bake for 1 hour. I took the second route, and the green beans were cooked through but still had a good bite (there is nothing worse than mushy vegetables). I also added extra French fried onions at the end to give extra crunch and flavor. This casserole is extremely delicious! I made it along with "Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Rosemary," found on this site.

Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Rosemary

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
My husband and I made these flavorful, tender Cornish games hens and they were fabulous! We only prepared two hens because 1/2 hen is more than enough per person, especially when paired with hearty side dishes, such as green bean casserole and mashed potatoes. I used minced garlic to enhance the flavor and added butter and herbs under the skin to make the roasted hens extra tasty and attractive. I used the drippings to make a delicious gravy, similar to a country gravy. To make the gravy, I transferred all of the drippings to a pan on the stove top and simmered them until they were reduced. I then added 1 tablespoon of flour, mixing constantly to create a roux. I slowly added 1/3 cup milk & heavy cream and 1/3 cup chicken stock. The result was a rich, nicely colored gravy, in fact, the best I have ever tasted. You may need to experiment with the amounts of flour and dairy to create your preferred consistency, just remember to stir quickly and continuously in order to avoid lumps. This gourmet meal was exceptionally delicious, and much easier to prepare than expected. The hens pair well with white wine, in particular the sweetness of a Riesling offsets the savory flavors of the food.

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
I made 180 of these delectable treats! They are extremely rich and make an attractive presentation. I doubled the recipe and formed slightly smaller truffles. I rolled them in chopped walnuts, colorful sprinkles, coconut, and crush candy canes, since I made them for Christmas. Everyone was wowed and enjoyed them thoroughly. People commented that the truffles were similar to fudge. The decorated truffles were beautiful when arranged on a large platter and they made adorable presents when placed in a clear box and tied with ribbon. A hand-cut snowflake completed the presentation. TIP: roll the chocolates in your desired coatings soon after they are formed, otherwise, the outside of the chocolate will harden and things won't stick properly - if this happens, just re-roll them to regain their stickiness. These keep well covered in the refrigerator. They can stay out of the fridge for a day, but since they include cream cheese, they should be kept cool.

Broccoli Beef I

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
This is a clever recipe for mimicking authentic broccoli beef sauce, but many reviewers have complained that it is missing something or needs "tweeking." My suggestion is to skip step 1 of the directions and the hassle of making sauce and use what the restaurants do: Oyster Sauce. This sauce is available in the Asian section of the supermarket and at Chinese markets.

Berry Shortbread Dreams

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
I have made this recipe several times; however, I do not add the icing because they're perfect without it. I like to make my cookies in different shapes with pretty designs that are filled with preserves or berry pancake syrup. Everyone raves about these treats and they have been called "addicting." They are simple to make - I follow the recipe as is with the exception of adding vanilla extract instead of almond extract - and I can make them quickly in a time crunch. Wherever I take them, the platters always come home empty because they are so delicious! See my photo "Giant Berry Shortbread Dream" for fun cookie ideas!

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
I made this bread in small loaf pans and placed them in clear winter-themed bags tied with ribbon as our annual Christmas dessert. The gingerbread smelled wonderful with all the spices. They rose beautifully in the oven and came out moist. I sprinkled powdered sugar on top for a snowy decoration, but that is a no-no. Unless you powder and serve the bread right away, the moisture from the molasses will melt the confectioner's sugar and leave an ugly mess on top. P.s. It was the first time I used molasses and boy did it stink! It did wonders for the gingerbread, though. We received many compliments.

Whipped Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
These cookies are festive and tasty. Although they were light and crisp, they broke apart and crumbled too much when they were bitten into (had a bit of a flour taste). We love desserts but these ended up sitting on the platter for several days, untouched. The recipe is simple and the cookies are done in no time. Good, but not great cookies. We prefer the more traditional shortbread, which is denser and has a richer flavor.

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
I made this soup and everyone LOVED it! My mother-in-law took some to work; her employees said it smelled wonderful, so she gave each person a sample. They all lined up with their plastic spoons and got a taste, then they begged for the recipe! Zuppa Toscana is my favorite at the popular restaurant, so now I can have it anytime at home! I make a few changes to the recipe. I use kale instead of spinach. Kale doesn't get mushy like spinach does, and it brings an irreplaceable freshness and crunch to the soup. The first time I made it, there was an excess of sausage, so either add more vegetables, or cut back on the meat by 1/4-1/2, depending on your personal taste. Finally, Hubby likes the bacon crumbled and I agree; square cut bacon detracts from the rustic feel of the soup. Otherwise, it's fabulous as is! Another tip: if you have those small packages of red pepper flakes from your last pizza night, 1 1/2 packages are the perfect amount for the zuppa. You'll see: people will be asking you for the recipe, too! Homemade soup, salad, and breadsticks, here we come!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
This wonderful recipe hardly needs more accolades, but I'm adding my 2¢. I have made this dish several times and with variations. The pie itself is exceptional, but consider these ideas for a delicious and quicker meal. 1. Make the pie filling, but instead of baking it in a pie crust, serve it with some flaky biscuits. If you buy store-bought biscuits and bake them while the filling is cooking, you can cut 30-40 minutes off the cooking time, and serve a great meal immediately. (You can also place the biscuits on top of the filling and bake for as long as the biscuit package indicates, or until the biscuits are golden brown.) 2. Add some quartered potatoes or halved new red potatoes as well as some corn, and you've got a Chicken Pot Pie Stew. 3. Save the boiling liquid from the chicken and vegetables to make a broth. You can boil double the veggies and chicken in chicken stock instead of water, which does two things: adds extra flavor to your pot pie filling and creates a tasty chicken noodle soup. Use half the chicken/veggies for the pie and add pasta to the soup and boil until the noodles are tender. Voilà: two meals in one! I hope your family enjoys these meal ideas as much as mine!

Bou's Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2006
This chicken is tender and covered in a sweet, thick sauce. It is like barbecued chicken made anytime on the stove. Honey can be substituted for sugar as it is a healthier option and nicely compliments the recipe's other ingredients. Be careful to keep your eye on the sauce so that it doesn't burn because the sugars tend to caramelize. Served with corn, salad, and rice, potatoes, or biscuits, it's a dish that adults and kids alike will thoroughly enjoy.
