Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2014
My first time making chicken noodle soup was a big success! This is a great basic recipe. Like most, I adjusted the ingredients a bit. But rather than go through all that, my only suggestion would be that you cook the noodles in the broth like the recipe states. Many reviewers suggest you cook them beforehand then add before serving. But I think cooking them in the broth added so much flavor to the noodles themselves--they could be a meal on their own! UPDATE: My family ate this in 3 days and asked for more. So I am making another batch tonight with the rest of the roast chicken and will always double this recipe in the future!

Hot Pepper Jelly

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2013
I adjusted this recipe, but only because I have a jalapeno plant that has produced a ton of peppers and I don't have any bell peppers in the house. I added 2 cups of jalapeno peppers (chucky cut) into the Cuisinart and finely chopped them. Then I followed the recipe as written. My jelly set up nice and thick and it is oh so hot. Just like we like it! But I will warn others to use this jelly sparingly.

Chicken Puffs

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2013
My kids love these! I always adjust the recipe depending on what I have on hand, but I add the butter and cream cheese as stated. Tonight I added sauteed mushrooms, left out the onions and added garlic salt and swiss cheese. I also always double the batch and the roll the leftover in wax paper (like cookie dough) and then I just slice and put them in the crescent rolls and bake. No thawing involved and a quick meal for busy kids on the run!

Coconut Ice Cream

Reviewed: May 27, 2013
This coconut ice-cream is good if you are looking for an ice-cream that tastes like whipping cream, with a little coconut kick. I slightly toasted the coconut and blended it in a food processor with the other ingredients so the coconut was pretty fine. I prefer the flavor of the Best Vanilla Ice Cream on this site made with half and half.

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2013
I made this marinade to spice up some leftover homemade chicken strips that we had for dinner last night. I used apple cider vinegar instead of rice vinegar, but followed the recipe otherwise. Both of my kids thought that the orange flavor was way too strong and wouldn't eat it. I thought it was a bit strong as well so I would definitely cut back on the zest (and perhaps leave it out all together) if I make this again.

Peppered Shrimp Alfredo

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2013
My kids really liked this recipe! I like that you add to an already prepared jar of alfredo sauce. I did cut back to 1/2 tsp of ground cayenne pepper and it was still a little too spicy for my youngest so I ended up adding the rest of the small carton of heavy cream to help balance that out. My kids ate it great the next night too!

Easy Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2012
We loved this ice-cream--everyone had seconds! I've made a couple other recipes on this site and this is our favorite. I made it exactly as-is. Great texture and flavor!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
We loved this cake. I made it twice in one week--one for a co-worker and one for my family. In both cases, it was gone before the week was up. The second time I made the mistake of only adding 3 eggs and it didn't make any difference in taste or texture.

Churros

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
These were sooo easy and sooo good! I made one recipe as-is and it was plenty for my family of 4. I just used a plastic ziploc bag and cut the corner. My first batch came out about as thick as my ring finger--I thought they were a little doughy on the inside. So I cut the other side of the corner of the baggie smaller and they were more the size of McDonald's french fries. I thought the smaller ones were better--no doughy middle. That said, my family ate all of them with no complaints!

Flatlander Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
This was really good. The flavor reminded me of the chili you buy at Wendy's--but better. I followed the recipe for the most part, keeping the spices the same with the exception of adding 1 TB worchestire. I used one 15 oz can of diced tomatoes and then filled that same can twice with tomatoe juice. It just seemed strange not to have some diced tomatoes in chili! I also added two drained cans of red beans, instead of 2 cups. Just read the recipe wrong, but I'm glad I did. I probably had an extra 1/2 pound of hamburger. One more comment: I made one batch the night before and the next one the next morning. The one that had cooked longer was less sweet... go figure!

Broccoli Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
My family didn't love this. I followed reviewer suggestions and used cream of mushroom and cream of chicken soups and omitted the mayo. Then made the stuffing beforehand and added it on top, followed by some provolone cheese. The stuffing adds a lot of salt, so watch your seasonings!

Pumpkin Roll Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
I made this last night and it really tastes great! (I omitted the nuts.) And it just looks so pretty! My only comment is that you should definitely spray and flour the waxed paper heavily before cooking. I did a light dusting and had a hard time getting the cake off the paper.

Crumb-Coated Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
This was just okay. I followed the recipe exact, except that I marinated the chicken in buttermilk for about 4 hours before coating and cooking. I just didn't like the blend of spices--a little too much for my taste. My family seemed to like it, although the leftovers are being tossed today so they must not have liked it too much.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
Nope, not the best. They cooked very thin flat and I like I softer cookie. Which really I should expected with a butter recipe (lower melting point, right?). I could have and added some additional flour and continued baking the rest, but instead I froze the dough--tastes better raw.

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
These were pretty good. Not as moist as I like but probably because they were baked and not browned in the pan. But perhaps healthier this way (?) I do like the little bit of hotness, but not sure that the kids did.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
Really?!?! People like these muffins?? I found them to be brick-like. And only 2 TB of cocoa did nothing for the flavor, just made them brown in color. I did use veg oil instead of sunflower seed oil so maybe that was the problem (?). Blah.

Fluffy White Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
Love this recipe. My kids like marshmellow-tasting frosting instead of a butter or cream cheese version so this is great. It's also so cheap to make and frosts and entire two level cake easily. Spreads easy too.

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
I thought this was pretty good, and easy! I used 10 bone-in chicken thighs and adjusted the recipe to serve 6. I also removed the skin because I was using so much butter--enough fat already! I cooked for 45 minutes (15 min. @ 375 then 30 min. @ 400, flipped the chicken every 15) and then browned each side for 5 min. under the broiler. Realy economical--I think I paid $3.50 for the chicken. Served with roasted potatoes, green salad, jello salad, and french bread. And we have leftovers for tomorrow!

Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
I really liked how easy this recipe was. I added 2 TB of butter to the olive oil for flavor, and crushed pepperidge farm stuffing mix for the bread crumbs. And I always flatten chicken breasts that are baked so we can cut them with a fork. I sprinkled the top with mozz cheese about 7 minutes before it was finished cooking. Served with plain spaghetti noodles and a side of spag sauce for those who wanted it. Easy, easy, easy.
