Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2013
Made a double-batch, using a rotisserie chicken. I made the rice a day before, and added 1/2 pkg frozen stir-fry veggies and a drained 4oz can of sliced mushrooms, and I used reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce instead of soy. We scarfed down the first batch, and I froze the second for a quick meal later on. Keeper!

Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2013
Every time we host a sleepover, this is the most-requested dessert! Due to DS's allergies, I modified the recipe and removed the graham cracker crumbs, 2 tbsp white sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 1/2 c butter. I used fat-free half-and-half instead of whipping cream, and it was still creamy and delicious, and fun to make with kids!

Chicken Bog

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
I found this while searching for a non-tomato-based jambalaya, and WOW! This was delicious! I routeinely purchase rotisserie chickens at costco, shred the meat, and freeze it in 2-cup portions. I used 2cups of shredded rotisserie chx for this recipe, and I used two quart sized boxes of low-sodium chicken stock. Per other reviews, I did not add any Italian seasoning. With these changes, the dish needed no salt, and was delicious; it fed our family of 4 (2 adults, and 12 & 14yo) plenty, with leftovers for another meal. Served with a large salad doused with balsamic vinaigrette, fresh mushrooms and avocado slices, and it was requested for another meal. Keeper!

Slow Cooker Italian Chicken Alfredo

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
Tastes better the 2nd day. DS loved this. Revision 4/7/14: this is a quick meal to make in the afternoon and have it ready for dinner. I was a little worried about all the sodium in the pouch mixes, but you can easily make your own dry Italian dressing. Instead of cream of mushroom soup, I used cream of golden mushroom, which came out a little darker, and I used a tiny bottle of white moscato wine. I thought it would be too sweet, but the flavor evened out as it cooked. I used fresh, sliced mushrooms, which shrunk down a lot. Next time I won't cut the large ones in half to retain the flavor. I forgot the fresh parsley at the end, but it survived 3 freezes in our garden, so I think we'll have it year-round, and next time it'll add a nice burst of freshness. I served the chicken over angel hair pasta, just because we had several boxes, and it was good. I'll mark this as a keeper, and next time, I think the flavor will improve using blsl chicken thighs. Happy cooking!

Winter Root Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
I was looking for a recipe to use some leftover roasted root veggies, so I tried this one. Per other reviews, I added cumin, salt, pepper, and a little garlic salt, and I followed the recipe (except for the celery root). The first few bites were good and hearty, but then it started tasting a little like dirt; the earthiness was a little heavy. The veggies I had were butternut squash, sweet potato, red onion, parsnips, carrots, zucchini, yellow squash, mushrooms, and red onion. I'm sure it was a combination of my own "operator error" and the veggies I used, but I was a little disappointed.

Southern Green Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
Great! For my family of 4, I cubed 1 medium russet potato and left the skin on. I simmered it in 1/2 cup chicken stock until tender, then added frozen, French-cut green beans and a handful of real bacon bits from my giant Costco bag. Will definitely make again!

Chocolate Mousse Cake IV

Reviewed: May 8, 2012
Made this for DD's 14th bday party, and we feasted on the leftovers for a couple of days. Delicious! I used the cake mix with the pudding inside to make it more dense, and the guests enjoyed watching me whip the cream (and tasting the results!). Keeper!

Sunday Dinner Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
Made for an extended family Easter luncheon, and I used 5 lbs of skinned red potatoes, neufchatel cheese, and reduced fat sour cream. I added a sprinkle of smoked paprika on top before serving, and kept them warm in a slow cooker. They were well received, and I'd make them again. This easily fed 3 college students, 3 high school students, a middle schooler, and 6 adults, and there were leftovers.

Homemade Laundry Soap

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
Ten stars! I first made a half batch to see how I liked it, and I'm very pleased with how soft the clothes come out. We are a family of 4 with kids (11 & 13), and although my kids don't get very dirty, they are entering the puberty stage and the underarm odor can make your eyes water! However, this detergent, along with adding vinegar to the first line in my Downy ball for each load, leaves clothes clean and fresh. I like it so much, I'm making a triple batch today, and this is our new detergent. Personal note: I didn't care for the scent of the Fels Naptha, so I used the Kirks Castille, and it's nice. The batch I'll make next will use pink Zote, and I'll update my review later. I keep the detergent in a rectangular Rubbermaid pitcher that sits on top of the washer, and I keep a 1/2-gallon bottle of vinegar next to it. The pitcher has an indention on top where the Downy ball fits perfectly. Thanks for posting the blog and the recipe, Ba'Nana! I love saving money!

Baked Lemon Chicken

Delicious! My DS who turned 12 this week had two helpings! The family enjoyed it, even though I accidentally left out the S&P. Thanks for an easy, quick meal, Marion!

Easy Cajun Jambalaya

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2012
Made this for the second time last night; it's perfect for those who cannot eat tomatoes. It makes enough to feed a family of 4 twice! I made the rice separately (using chicken broth) and I used a whole carton of chicken stock in the jambalaya; let it cook down a little bit, and the rice was still perfect. I doubled the celery and sausage, using half boudain and half kielbasa, and I also added a cubed yellow squash, fresh mushrooms, and a cubed small zucchini to add some veggies to this one-dish meal. Even though I forgot to add the last 2 ingredients, the family still enjoyed it; hubs had seconds. Served with large biscuits. I have now deleted the other jambalaya recipes from my recipe box, and this is the only one I'll use. Thanks for the post, Grant Michel!

Roasted Vegetable Orzo

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
Made this per directions, and it was good, but it makes a TON! Fed our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 hungry pre-teens) three meals. I added shredded chicken to it the first night to make it a meal in itself.

Sausage Cheese Grits

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
Made this and let it cool, then I cut into rectangles and froze them. Great for a quick grab-n-go breakfast; just nuke each rectangle until warm!

Mama's Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
Family enjoyed this light dressing. I added a teaspoon of brown sugar, put the ingredients in a small mason jar with a lid, and shook it to incorporate everything. This was my first time to use white balsamic vinegar, and it was good. This recipe also works quite well with red balsamic vinegar, too!

Fried Rice I

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
Boiled rice in chicken broth & used leftover chicken instead of bacon. I also added chunks of zucchini, yellow squash, and mushrooms. Family enjoyed it as a main dish with hot & sour soup on the side, and there were enough leftovers for 2 large servings.

Oatmeal Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
The family loved these, warm from the oven. I only had 1-3/4 c rolled oats, so I added 1/4 c wheat germ for a little fiber and the texture turned out great. I also used 1.5 cups semi sweet chips + and 1/2 c cinnamon chips, and I subbed 1/2 c sugar with 1/2 c Splenda, since I have to watch my sugar. Lovely!
