Quick and Easy Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
I was not in love with this recipe, and my husband didn't take the leftovers for lunch, which is a HUGE thumbs down. I doubled the sauce and, at the end, added straw mushrooms, green beans, and water chestnuts for texture. It was ok, but certainly no better than popping open a bottle of teriaki glaze, which would have been quicker. There was something kind of weird about the ketchup/lemon combo. I will be sticking with the bottle of glaze in the future.

Mocha Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
I followed the review that used 1 c. applesauce and 1/4 c. oil. Seemed thick, so I added about 1/4 c. milk. After I baked them and we had fallen in love, I realized that I forgot to add sugar!!! As in, I added NO SUGAR!!! I guess the applesauce and choc. chips were sweet enough. The best muffins I've had in ages.

Terri's Chicken Carcass Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
A name change seems in order. First, when my family says, "What's for dinner?" I don't really want to say "Chicken Carcass Stew." Second, doesn't carcass imply using the bones (i.e., as when you make broth)?

Oatmeal Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
I agree that these were too dry. I used buttermilk and grated the apple. They also have a strong flavor of baking powder, even though they did not rise much. Will definitely keep looking for a better oatmeal apple muffin recipe.

Butterscotch Gingerbread Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2008
Great with a few modifications! I doubled the recipe (but only got 6.5 dozen) and used only 2 cups brown sugar. For shortening, I used about 1 3/4 c. Crisco plus 1/4 c. applesauce. I cut back on the spices slightly (the clove taste is very strong) and used one bag of chips for the doubled recipe. My daughter and I *loved* them; my husband didn't think they were sweet enough!!! A big hit at a Halloween party. Enjoy!

Spicy African Yam Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2008
We loved this. Very easy to make. I used turkey broth and substituted frozen green beans and frozen cauliflower for zucchini because that's what we had. Also tossed in 1 cup of leftover turkey but would have been fine without it. Will definitely cook this again.

Fresh Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
FANTASTIC! Made this for my mom with 1/2 the amount of sugar & mayo; dried cranberries instead of raisins; apple cider vinegar instead of white wine vinegar. She said she wouldn't change a thing. I mixed the mayo/sugar/onion the night before. My husband thought this made the onions lose their "kick," so next time I will set aside a few raw onions to sprinkle on his serving only. (The rest of us loved the sweetness.)Used only 8 slices of bacon and it could have used more, but overall, delish!!! Will make this again and again!

Angel's Old Fashioned Beef Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2004
It must be called Angel's because it's so comforting, it feels like heaven. I made it exactly like the recipe called for, even though other folks advised it was bland. It was FANTASTIC! Also, I'm not sure why someone found it a lot of work---I browned all the beef in one big batch (making half the recipe, though), and chopped up the veggies while it was browning. My 13-month-old, who is picky, gobbled this up faster than I could cut it into pieces for her. Our local heat-and-eat restaurant makes something that tastes identical---for $3.95 a pint! Will not look for another stew recipe: this is The One!

Strawberry Angel Food Dessert

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2004
A big hit at our Easter lunch. I used 1/3 fat cream cheese and 1/2 fat whipped topping. Also, 1/2 c. of sugar. Instead of strawberries, used one can pineapple pie filling. Used a box of angel food cake mix made in two loaf pans, and crumbled it in the 9 x 13" pan while warm as suggested. Everyone said it would be the perfect summer dessert!

Baked Corn

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2004
Kind of weird if you're not used to corn bread with actual chunks of corn. I'm not a big canned corn fan, and I wanted to pick it all out as I ate the (otherwise) yummy bread! Maybe if you bought the most expensive corn, or tried the sweet, smaller white frozen kernels. The kids thought it was strange, too. My husband liked the fact that the corn chunks made it more of a true side dish than a dessert dish. 1/2 c. of butter is plenty. Also, had to change the other measurements a bit because the little jiffy mixes are 8.5 oz, so 17 oz. total. Made a nice big pan, but I probably won't make it---at least, not with the corn chunks!---again.

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2004
My husband LOVED this---said he would eat it "frequently." I used the spices as is except a dash of hot sauce for the cayenne pepper. Also, 1 can of chilis and 2 cans of beans: one mashed, one not. For broth, 2 bouillon cubes and 2 c. water. Tasted even better the next day, with a real Indian flavor, so next time I'll make it on a Sunday to eat during the week! Made 4 large servings over brown rice.
