Chicken Stew with Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2014
I made this tonight but I used AR's "Dumplings" recipe instead of this dumpling recipe. It's both a winner and a keeper! Note to self: next time, make double and freeze half.

Alabama Fire Crackers

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2014
I tweaked this a little bit: I used 1.5 cups oil, 1 packet dry Ranch and 1 packet dry Italian dressing mix. When I use 2 pkts ranch, I'll add 2 tbsp Italian seasoning. Our church youth group loves this!

Chayote Squash Side Dish

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2014
All we tasted was the red wine vinegar. If I try this again, I'll use lime juice instead.

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2014
I used thin-cut bacon and placed on a broiler pan at 425, with a little water in the bottom of the broiler pan, and baked for 15 minutes. I turned the pieces over and baked for 15 minutes more. Although a few pieces in the middle looked raw, they were crunchy and wonderful. Note: I overlapped the pieces, since my bacon had a thin side and a thick side. I alternated placement so a thin piece was next to a thick piece, and it was perfect for our "breakfast for dinner." Keeper!

Super Easy Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2014
5 stars! I buy rotisserie chickens 2-3 at a time at a major discount club, then shred the meat and parcel in 2 cup portions in a zip top bag, then freeze them flat to save space in the freezer. I tweaked it because I used AR's recipe for "Cream Soup Base," which makes 2 cans of condensed soup, and I added a chopped yellow squash, a chopped zucchini, and fresh mushrooms. The soup thickened up, so I added the last 1/2 cup of chicken stock that was left from my 16oz containers, and it's perfect for lunches tomorrow. Keeper!

Bread Machine Thin Crust Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2014
I made three double batches of this for our 7th Annual Labor Day Sleepover. I had to add about 1/3 cup more water, and a few splashes of EVOO to keep the dough moist enough to form into a ball in my bread machine. The teens ate it all after creating their own toppings, and my pizza was good, so I'll rate this 4 stars, decreasing due to the need for more moisture in the dough, as was noted by many other reviewers. I'm on the Gulf Coast, for what it's worth.

Pesto Pasta Caprese Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2014
This was pretty good. Due to a tomato allergy, I subbed steamed broccoli florets for the grape tomatoes, and I added some sliced black olives to add another dimension. Instead of the mozzarella pearls, I subbed a block of fresh marinated mozzarella instead, and I sliced it into 1/4" chunks. Since other reviewers said it was bland or lacking something, I added some fresh mushrooms I'd cooked in EVOO and balsamic vinegar, and they had a little tang which greatly improved the salad as a side dish.

Granny's Italian Zucchini Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2014
This is a keeper! I used half zucchini and half yellow squash, and baked in a deep glass pie plate. Instead of basil and oregano, I used 1 tsp Italian seasonings (Penzey's Tuscan Sunset) and a little marjoram. I used whole grain mustard on the crust, enough to lightly coat the whole crust. Although some of the dough triangles were misshapen, I pinched all the seams together and it worked great. Don't make your crust extend too far above the dish, or else, like in the photo, the outermost edges will brown before the middle is set. A double recipe would be great for a potluck!

Hot and Sour Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2014
Made this today for my husband, who awoke at 2:30am with chills and achy joints. It seems to have helped a little. Next time I'll add just a little more red pepper flakes, but the recipe as stated was mild enough for my DS to eat.

Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2014
I made this for my hubby and teens (14 & 16), using chicken sausage from my local market. I'd found a pkg of 4 portabella caps at costco for a great price, and this recipe was perfect for us. I chopped the stems and sauteed them in EVOO and a splash of balsamic vinegar. I baked the mushrooms at the end of the baking time of Chicken Dermie a la Hermie (from AR) and we enjoyed the meal. Although half a mushroom would have been enough for me, I couldn't stop eating it, so I had the whole thing. Yum!

Breaded Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2014
Delicious keeper! I had 8 thin-sliced pork chops, so I doubled the recipe and cooked them in a little EVOO on the stove. The kids liked them, so did hubs, so it's a keeper!

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2014
Hubs loved this; DS picked at it, DD said 'it's okay...', and I thought it was a bit too lemony. We resolved to make it again when the kids are away at camp. Summary: it's a keeper for adults, but not for kids.

Broccoli and Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2014
This was just okay...I kept adding cider vinegar until the taste and consistency was just right, but the rest of the family didn't care for it. I enjoyed it, but being the lone saveur, I saved the dressing in a ziploc and the broccoli in a gladware, with the bacon in a snack size ziploc, so I can enjoy the rest at my leisure. Keeper for me, but not for my family.

Moist Spicy Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2014
This was a wonderful alternative to AR's "Actually Delicious Turkey Burger," which was a staple until my kids became teens. Now they enjoy a little more spice to their meals. I toasted hamburger buns in my toaster and I eased up a bit on the Sriracha sauce, but we melted a piece of Swiss cheese on each burger, which helped to mellow out the spice. Keeper!

Pudding Poke Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2014
I made this with white cake mix (all I had on hand) and chocolate pudding mix. Took it to a potluck and it was devoured! Keeper.

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: May 31, 2014
I had two leftover baked potatoes, so I cut them in half, scooped out the flesh, added butter and cheese and bacon bits, and nuked. (I didn't add salt since I'd coated the potatoes in EVOO and kosher salt while they baked.) Once everything was warm, I added the sour cream and put the mixture back in the skins and baked. Great way to stretch 2 potatoes to feed 4 people...keeper!

Oven Baked Omelet

Reviewed: May 26, 2014
We had this for dinner tonight, and the eggs were very fluffy. I had to bake them about 10 more minutes in order for them to set up and fluff back down. I added more cheese on top, which created a crispy crust. Hubs went back for seconds, so I'd call this a winner.

Mini Ham And Cheese Rolls

Reviewed: May 26, 2014
These are always a hit at potlucks, and as appetizers--just cut the sandwiches into fourths. Keeper!

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: May 26, 2014
This has been an extended-family favorite for several years. To cut down on time, I use frozen turkey meatballs (w/o Italian seasoning). Since the recipe only calls for 8 oz cranberry sauce, I use the whole can of whole-berry cranberry sauce, the entire jar of Heinz Chili Sauce, 2 Tb brown sugar, and 1 Tbsp lemon juice; mix the sauce together and pour over the meatballs, and heat in the slow cooker, stirring occasionally. Serve with decorative toothpicks (or plain ones, depending on who's eating them!) with small plates and plenty of napkins. My SIL liked this so much, I gave her the recipe, and now she always serves it when we arrive. Two thumbs up!

Cheeseburger Soft Tacos

Reviewed: May 22, 2014
I made two versions of this tonight; one with ground sirloin (and 3 dashes worcestershire sauce and a sprinkle of seasonsed salt with kraft singles to melt quickly, and the other version was ground turkey with some creole seasoning and swiss cheese. Both got thumbs up!
