Chocolate Chip Krispies

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2004
I liked the idea of this cookie, but didn't have some of the ingredients on hand. I took the advice of another reviewer and halved the choco chips, but used Cocoa Krispies instead of Rice Krispies. Something seemed to be missing and it wasn't sweet enough, though, so added another 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup chocolate syrup, and 1/4 cup peanut butter. The cookies came out pretty tasty then. Liked that about the recipe, that it was so easily adaptable to taste and creativity. Would make again.

Ranger Joe Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2004
I made these just exactly as described, but used Cocoa Krispies as I am in Europe and cannot get regular rice cereal. The result was yummy. My four-year-old son, office mates, family members all devoured them. Lovely mix of flavors and the crispy texture is a sure hit.

Linda's Awesome Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2004
If I could give this more than a five star rating, I would' Absolutely one of the best brownie recipes ever. Added 2 T cocoa powder, a bit more semisweet chocolate, and walnuts. Had to make twice within 12 hours for family. What a hit' Thanks'

Fettucine Carbonara

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2004
Definitely a fabulous addition to any chef's recipe file. I have been searching for the perfect carbonara recipe for years and find it funny that it is just so darn easy to make. (How come most restaurants can't figure this out?) I used only three eggs and it came out fine.

Potato and Cauliflower Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2004
Ultimate comfort food on a cold fall day. Added one more potato and a bit more pepper to taste. Family loved it -- and they are not great vegetable eaters. Was kind of like macaroni and cheese with the cauliflower and potatoes playing the macaroni role. As such, I think it would be pretty tasty with bits of ham mixed in. Will try that next time as this is surely a keeper' And really really easy to make' Thanks, Primarygr'

Rouladen

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2004
I lived in Germany and learned how to make this there. I use almost the same recipe, but place the rouladen in a brownie pan, add a bit of water, then bake it for one hour partially covered. I do not put bacon in the rouladen and it still tastes wonderful. I have found that it turns out better if you use the really hot and spicy mustard, sprinkle with coarsely ground black pepper. (I like spicy foods, though). Have never used the brown gravy mix as suggested in this recipe. The drippings from the meat-onions-pickles makes a tasty gravy base on their own.

Bread and Celery Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2004
Cut celery and onions the night before and put in fridge. Also made the chicken broth the night before. (One chicken breast, one onion, one bell pepper, one bouillon cube, half bell pepper, two carrots and two stalks of celery in about six cups water as I don't really like canned broth). Plopped veggies in with the butter the next morning. Did not have poultry seasoning, so used a pinch of each of thyme, sage, parsley, herb salt, and a bit of marjoram. Stuffed the turkey, then put the rest into crock pot. (Yes, I doubled the recipe to make sure there would be enough. My family adores stuffing and dressing). Fabulous. Easy to adapt to taste.

Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2004
Used butternut squash (steamed for 15 minutes, then pulp just fell off the skin), then followed directions exactly. Well, did add an additional dash of pumpkin pie seasoning. This came out absolutely divine. First pumpkin pie I've ever made without canned pumpkin, and wow what a difference. Truly a spectacular end to a holiday dinner.

Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2005
Made these for Thanksgiving dinner for European guests who have never had sweet potatoes prepared in this way. Was a bit sweet (and strange) to their taste. A bit too sweet for my taste as well. Good recipe, but will cut back on brown sugar next time.

Best Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2005
Didn't have almond extract, so used vanilla extract. Also did not use optional food coloring. Came out wonderful -- but sweet -- in any case.

Italian Chicken with Garlic and Lemon

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2005
This may deserve a five star and will try it again with some changes. Used balsamic vinegar instead of wine vinegar. This made the sauce sweet and did not really offset the lemon taste as much I expected. Had a light lemonade taste. Need to work on this or simply try the wine vinegar. Also put in about one tablespoon of Italian dressing powder from a packet (the Good Seasons kind) -- that was delicious. Put skinless/boneless chicken breasts and sauce into oven, then fried the potatoes separately. Added potatoes to the last half hour. That worked splendidly. Potatoes were not soggy and picked up a bit of flavoring from the sauce. All in all, a very good recipe worth trying again to adapt to taste.

Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2005
Fabulous' Tweaked the recipe a bit as we like food with a bit more zip and zing. Added three cloves of garlic, not just one. Also sprinkled red pepper flakes on chicken as it was cooking in the butter. Used one can of corn, one small bag of frozen corn - no creamed corn at all. Added one tablespoon red pepper paste (like the kind they have in Chinese restaurants) instead of Tabasco. One mistake -- mine -- was to add dried cilantro. Floated around the chowder in kind of an unattractive presentation, but did not have fresh cilantro. All in all, fantastic and easy to do. Great soup for a cold winter day.

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2005
In the dead of winter with only mushy tasteless tomatoes around, decided to substitute with canned as many other reviewers suggested. Also used dried basil as I did not have fresh on hand and a spoonful of sugar. Even with the warning to not substitute, this soup was divine. Would probably taste good with homemade garlic herb croutons. Will try that next time.

Grandma Minnie's Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2005
My mom died recently and her mother died when she was a young girl. She remembered making sugar cookies with her mom as a favorite memory, so we spent much of my girlhood trying to find exactly that same recipe that her mom used by trying dozens of variations. When I made these with my five-year-old son today, I had the sense that I had found finally that perfect cookie recipe that my mom made with her mom. This was quite a wonderful moment, the circle of life, all brought on by these exquisite cookies. Added a splash more cream and a dab (probably 2 T) more butter. Perfect, simply perfect. Thanks so much.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2005
It is the banana-iest' Excellent banana bread. Poured batter into a deep dish pie pan as my loaf pan had been conscripted for pre-school crafts without my knowing it. Came out beautifully and gave quite a dramatic presentation from the regular loaf shape. Thanks so much.

Navy Bean Soup I

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2005
Loved this soup, but made these variations to pack more of a vitamin punch: added 2 banana peppers (very mild) cut into rings with the onion, plus another 2 cloves of garlic -- all of these were added raw. Did not add garlic salt, but did add another bouillon cube and a pinch of seasoned salt. (I can imagine the amount of salt needed depends on how salty is the ham). Substituted 1/2 CELERY ROOT for celery as root has more flavor and a load more vitamin content. Cut carrots (3) and parsnips (2) into fairly thin medallions and added in last hour of cooking -- these amounts can change according to taste and how it looks. Also added a pinch of hot pepper seeds to final broth. These really aren't big changes and the soup comes out delicious. Just like to take advantage of getting as many vegetables into soup as I can -- and they all went together very very well.

Campbell's® Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
And old family favorite. Who ever could give this less than five stars just for nostalgia value! When I couldn't get the Campbell's soup and the French cut green beans in Europe, I substituted a packaged Cream of Mushroom soup, added sour cream and milk. One year I tried to slice frozen green beans down in to French sliced -- too time consuming and absolutely frustrating! Just used regular frozen green beans and the taste was also fabulous. Made thin-sliced homemade onion rings as well. In the end, a lot more time consuming than this easy original. I realized how very much I appreciated the ease of this great side dish for holiday meals when everything else in the kitchen is topsy-turvy from cooking.

Golden Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
Mmm. Mmm. Fabulous! Like a ritzy steak restaurante soup! Added more water than called for here, but added quite a few more potatoes as well. Did not add celery. Sauteed bacon and garlic in bacon grease. Cooked bacon to go with it, but not needed. Allowed guests to decide whether they wanted it or not at the end. Added a cup of cream as well to counterbalance the added water. Somewhat mashed the potatoes as well. This soup was delicious -- something like a roasted garlic cheesy potato soup. Garlic definitely added umpfh to the soup and would highly recommend trying that variation!
