Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
Very good! So much better than the boxed stuff, and healthier too, without all the chemicals and preservatives! I didn't use the onion, I don't really like them. I combined 3 different kinds of salsa (finished off the open bottles in my fridge!) to make 1 cup and added a can of diced tomatoes (undrained) as well. It turned out very good, and I will definitely make this again!

E-Z Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: May 25, 2013
The first time I made it, they spread like crazy - tasted wonderful, but were flat and about 4 inches across. Tonight, I increased the flour to 2 1/2 cups and started with 1/2 cup milk and added a little at a time to get the right consistency. Probably ended up with a total of 3/4 cup milk. They are in the oven now and holding their shape beautifully! Both times I also omitted the cream of tartar per other reviews.

Luau Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2012
Excellent! I didn't use the peppers or onions - my family doesn't like them. I browned chicken breasts that were pounded thin in a little olive oil in an oven proof skillet, then whisked in all the sauce ingredients in the pan and simmered for a few minutes. I then added water chestnuts & crushed pineapple, and put the uncovered skillet in the oven to finish cooking the chicken - 375 for about 10 minutes. Served over white rice. Hubby asked me to add to the rotation!

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2012
Wow, these are good! I made exactly as stated, I used a jelly roll pan with melted butter in the bottom, and after the baking soda/hot water bath I put them on the pan top side down to get some butter, then flipped them back onto their backs, sprinkled the salt and baked. Wow!! I burned my tongue eating one right out of the oven, but it was so worth it!! Excellent recipe! By the way, April 26 (today!) is National Pretzel Day, so it was imperative that we had these today! :-)

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
Grown up playdoh, I love it!! I have never even eaten fondant before, but wanted to use it for my son's birthday cake this weekend. I figured that homemade had to be better than boxed, so I looked for this recipe. I made a test batch the other day so I could see what it tasted like, and while I think it's too sweet (I don't really like sweets), my husband thought it was pretty good. It's easy to work with, super easy to put together, and works great! Thank you for this recipe!

David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
Oh my goodness, I'm in heaven!! I have recently been diagnosed with some food allergies and can't eat boxed cake mixes. I was looking for a cake recipe that I can eat to make for my son's birthday party this weekend. I halved the recipe to make a small practice cake, and all I can say is YUM!! I didn't even wait for it to cool, it smelled so good! Deliciously moist and flavorful. Even if I wasn't allergic to the ingredients in a boxed mix, I will never eat one again after trying this cake. Thank you, David!!!

Grits Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
Fantastic! Added 2 more eggs per other suggestions, and waited until the last 5-10 minutes to put the top cheese on. I want to try this with bacon or ham, and maybe add some mushrooms! Yummy! Edit - 4/17/12 - How wild is this, I made this the other day and had totally forgotten that I'd made it before until I went to review it this morning! I made it last week with bacon, and it was fantastic!! I had a large pot-luck brunch (130 women) and I tripled it, and baked it in 2 9x13 pans (it did need a little extra cooking time). I had NO leftovers! I'm making again right now with sausage for another pot-luck brunch. I know it will be a hit! I won't forget about this one again! :-)

Heavenly Angel Food Cake

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
I was recently diagnosed with food allergies, so I'm learning to make things from scratch. I tried this recipe out for a cookout, and it was delicious! I will never go back to a boxed angel food cake mix, even if I didn't have allergies! This had none of the weird aftertaste that a boxed mix has, just light, fluffy, sweet goodness! I used the egg whites that come in a carton from the store, and it still turned out beautifully. Thank you for this recipe!!

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
Excellent! I left out the onion because we don't like them. Hubby said several times how good it was and between the 2 of us we almost finished off the whole thing! I think this is my new favorite way to make yellow squash! Thank you for an easy recipe that I will make again and again!

Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
Excellent! I also dredged in flour first before the egg, the coating stuck wonderfully and it tasted delicious! Served with gravy (just a packet kind) and yellow squash casserole, and hubby commented several times how good it all was! Thanks!

Creamy Hot Cocoa

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
Yum! I was out of the packets - and now I'll never buy them again! This was so much better, and very comforting after coming in from playing in the snow. I didn't have any half and half, so I just used all milk and didn't heat it too hot, then served with whipped cream on top.

Buttery Spritz Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
Yum! Just like mama used to make! I didn't have almond extract, so I just used all vanilla, and chilled the dough between press fillings. I found that the disks that have connected patterns or just one hole seemed to work the best, but I think thats just the nature of press cookies and not the dough's fault.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
This was really good! I made some whole wheat bread that didn't really turn out - kind of dense and flavorless, so instead of throwing it out, I decided to make bread pudding! I omitted the raisins (we don't like them) but otherwise used the recipe as stated. I didn't measure the bread, just cut up cubes to fill the pan. The only thing I did differently was to let it sit for about an hour before cooking to let the bread soak up the liquid. Probably would have been great to make ahead the night before since this bread was so dense. Turned out great and I had 2 helpings!

Waffles I

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
Dense and rubbery. First time using my waffle maker, so I have nothing to compare it to, but these are nothing like restaurant waffles, or even frozen waffles. I cooked them for at least 10 minutes, and they never crisped up. Next time I'll try Bisquick.

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
OMG - this is soooo good! I used equal parts oil/vinegar, omitted the mustard (I don't like it) and didn't have onion powder so I used garlic salt in place of the salt (as well as the called for garlic powder). I also added a little sugar as well, to cut some of the tart. We have a local Greek chain in our city and I crave their salad - this is very close to their dressing, so now I don't have to pay $9 every time I want their salad!

Spinach Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2006
This was delicious!! I added some breadcrumbs to the parmesan cheese coating mixture and sauteed some garlic in with the butter for the sauce and added some salt & pepper as well. I omitted the onions (we don't like them) and the pimentos (didn't have any). I also pounded the chicken out to about 3/4 inch so it was uniform in thickness. I baked the chicken alone for 15 minutes and then put the spinach mixture on top for the last 15 minutes so it wouldn't dry out. That worked very well. I will definitely make this again!
