Gluehwein

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
I made this for friends who were on a float in our town's Christmas Parade. I used brown sugar instead of white, and poured it into several insulated mugs with lids. Everyone wanted the recipe, and it helped them warm up after a night on a float. (I suspect it helped us all *float* home, too!) The only other change was that after the sugar/water/orange peel mixture boiled, I turned the stove off and let it sit while I did an errand. When I returned, the mixture had thickened. Since I used a small saucepan, I heated half of the wine in the microwave then added everything into a large thermos. My husband said he could smell it when the thermos was opened! Oh, since there was already orange juice in it, I also added about 1/2 cup of orange liquer for an extra shot of cheer. Will definitely serve again! Thanks for the recipe.

Incredibly Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
Kid-friendly! Used shredded cheese and Sweet Baby' Ray's Honey BBQ sauce. I'm not a meatloaf fan, but this rocked! Going in keeper file. Served with zucchini boats. Nummy!

Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
scaled this down to serve 6 and it was phenomenal! I couldn't believe how tasty it was. The only change I made was to use high quality balsamic vinegar in place of the red wine vinegar. I'm filing this in my "keeper" box!

Robbi's M&M Cookies

Reviewed: May 30, 2009
Mmm, these were great! I followed others' recommendations and used 2 sticks softened real butter, no shortening, and increased flour by 1/4 cup. I also added about 1 cup chocolate chips I'd had leftover in the pantry. I'd definitely do that again! I made these for a Boy Scout fundraiser, and before I added the M&Ms, I took out the blue and yellow ones, then measured the other colors to add to the recipe (I used 2 bags of "Tear & Share" size, 3.14oz each). I pressed 1 blue and 1 yellow on the top of each cookie for the boy scout colors. Recipe made exactly 72 cookies. You can taste the butter. Now I need to go package them so I'll have some for tonight's fundraiser! :-)

Baked Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2009
Made this for a church potluck and received great reviews! I used "light" mayo and sour cream too with no problems. This dish serves many and we're still enjoying the leftovers. This is now in my "keeper" file.

Four Cheese Margherita Pizza

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2009
Marinating the tomatoes with the garlic in olive oil was incredible...my 11yo commented how good it was this morning after we had this for dinner last night. A definite keeper! (even tho we used already-made pizza dough)

Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
Made with chicken base and 2 cans skimmed evaporated milk; also used dry mustard per other reviews. I made this twice before submitting my review, and like others, I found that after adding the cheese, I still needed to thin-out the mixture by adding about 1-1/2 cups regular milk. This is a wonderful recipe and I give it rave reviews!

Easy Greek Yogurt Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
I didn't want to wait too long since this smelled so good, so to thicken it, I used a whole container (8oz?) of crumbled feta cheese. I mixed everything in the blender to give it a consistent texture, and it really does age well. Not good for those who don't like a strong cheese taste, but that's my error since I added so much! This is a keeper; thanks for the recipe, 5thsister! See you on the Exchange!

Savory Herb Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
This was a great addition to the keeper box. Made tonight on the suggestion of the Recipe Exchange; served with shredded chicken and some fresh corn. Per other reviewers, I only used 1 tbsp low-so soy sauce, and also used 1 cup homemade chicken stock and 1 cup water with some chicken base added.

Farmer's Market Vegetarian Quesadillas

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
Due to family preferences, I used yellow squash, zucchini, fresh mushrooms, and fresh tomatoes on wheat tortillas. I used a wide spatula and had no trouble flipping them in the skillet. One tip is to put a thin layer of cheese right next to each tortilla; it melts and acts like an edible glue to keep it all together. My kids, 9&11, loved these! I liked pan-roasting the veggies in olive oil and Italian seasonings first to get a glaze on them. This is a keeper! Thanks, jrbaker!

Easy Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
This was a great way to use up extra chicken fajita meat. I used wheat tortillas and refried black beans. I made half the recipe and baked them in an 8x8" glass square pan. They are VERY filling and good! Note: to avoid the extra chemicals and ingredients you can't pronounce, use the "Cream Base" recipe in place of the cream-of soup. You'll be healthier and it tastes much better, without the canned taste. Thanks for the recipe! It's kid-friendly and good!

BUSH'S® Red, White and Bean Minestrone

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
FIVE STARS!! Used prepackaged shredded carrots and omitted the spinach and pesto. Added about 1 cup fresh mushrooms sauteed in butter. Also added 3 slices American cheese to thicken, and aged white cheddar shreds with a handful of feta on top. Kids ate it up, and hubby and son took it for lunch yesterday! I've eaten leftovers for lunch and just now finished the last. Mmmm, this was awesome!

Chicken Piccata II

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
Made this tonight with some chicken medallions. Kids (9&11) and hubby loved it! I was surprised how nice and evenly the chicken cooked. I breaded in flour first, then the egg/lemon juice mixture, and flour again. I heated 3 tbsp olive oil and added 2 tbsp real butter, then cooked the chicken. Nummy! 6 stars!

Honey Wheat Sandwich Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
Until this recipe, I've been "challenged" as a bread baker. This recipe works for me! I can't mess it up! Thanks for posting! Try this, you won't be disappointed...I was out of wheat flour but all-purpose white flour worked great.

Crispy Chicken Strips

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
Didn't have rice krispies; used the rest of a box of Yukn Gold potato flakes (instant mashed potatoes). We don't eat out much, but kids (9&11) said these sure beat out McD and Sonic's chicken strips! WOOT, WOOT! I added garlic powder, smoked paprika, and Penzey's Italian seasoning. THIS ROCKS!

Crispy Chicken Strips

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
My kids said these were better than fast food chains! Only difference was that I sprayed them with butter spray, then baked them on a rack over a jellyroll pan. They came out crunchy and delicious. I had mine with Sweet Baby Ray's Raspberry Chipotle BBQ sauce....mmmmm!!

Sausage Party Melts

These were really good on a cold day. Normally I don't eat tomatoes; just never developed a taste for them; however, on these, the tomatoes taste so fresh and sweet! Thanks for expanding my palate.
