Dijon-Tarragon Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2014
I really like this recipe, but made a couple adjustments. It wasn't mentioned but I tenderized the breast halves just a little. Like some of the reviewers have noted, I coated the chicken on both sides with flour before seasoning with salt and pepper. I also doubled the heavy cream, dijon mustard, and the tarragon. The original recipe didn't give us enough sauce! Otherwise, this is a good recipe, and I'll be making this for dinner pretty often!

Garden Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2013
Fresh, light, and tasty. I would say that this makes closer to 4 servings than 6. (4 bowls or 6 cups of soup, maybe). I did what one reviewer suggested which was to puree the whole thing in a blender after it boils for 20 minutes, before going to the roux step. I also added parsley, basil, and thyme. I might try this again with some garlic. It was a tasty soup, and perfect with a grilled cheese sandwich (I had a smoked cheddar grilled cheese), but I think it was missing something, so maybe I'll add garlic next time.

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2013
This was amazing. My husband is so picky that it's actually really difficult to find recipes that he'll like! (His only flaw ;) ) But he loved this, and so did I. It was extremely easy to make, and perfect with some linguine pasta.

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2013
A surprise hit at Thanksgiving! It didn't really look like anything special to be honest, but when my guests got a taste, they all loved it and went back for seconds and thirds. Loved the sour-cream and buttery flavors.

Cranberry Sauce I

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2013
So easy to make, and possibly the best cranberry sauce I've ever had. My Thanksgiving guests said the same thing) After the berries started to pop, I think I kept cooking it for another 5 minutes. Total cooking time was about 9 minutes for me.

Split Pea and Ham Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2013
Hearty, delicious soup! My husband and I both loved this. I soaked the split peas overnight, and I did add a couple bay leaves and garlic, and added some leftover ham from Thanksgiving along with the ham-bone--but otherwise followed directions. Best pea soup I've had in years!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
Really good cookies! I used an AirBake cookie sheet and needed 13 to 14 minutes in the oven.

Chicken El Dermie Le Hermie

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2013
I added pads of butter of top of each chicken drumstick, as well as chili powder, and this was very good. For me, it still needed salt afterwards, but still good, and very easy and simple!

Cream of Fresh Asparagus Soup II

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2013
This is a really good, easy recipe! I needed about double the salt, and I added a little extra lemon juice, and it was perfect!

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2013
This is a wonderful mushroom soup. I added a bit more lemon juice to make it extra tangy, and I needed about twice the salt. Overall, really delicious. Will make this again soon!

Mexican Shrimp Cocktail

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
A party hit! I made a batch of this for a party over the weekend, and all of it was gone faster than anything else served. It IS a bit soupy and thin, so I added a little extra ketchup.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2013
I've made this recipe several times now, and it is always delicious and sweet, without being "too sweet." I wasn't crazy about the mushy, purply banana pieces that you get a day or so after baking this bread--so, I started chopping the bananas into smaller pieces, and it's been wonderful every time. I usually bake for only 57-58 minutes, at just a notch under 350 degrees. (My oven runs a little hot)

Creamy Chicken on Linguine

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2013
Delicious! My picky husband loved this, and so did I. I did have some issues getting the sauce to thicken, so I added a little flour (like someone else did here) and it was perfect. We also didn't quite have enough sauce, so I would agree with other users to double the sauce.

Crunchy Oven Fried Tilapia

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2013
Not bad, very light, but needed a lot more seasoning. I looked through some of the reviews before making this, and decided to add some extra seasoning to the breading, and also let the fish sit in lemon juice before starting the process. Still too bland, but what I did like was how well the fish and breading stayed together, and that the breading stayed crispy.

Mom's Paprika Chicken with Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
Very good chicken--make sure you use more paprika! (like the recipe writer says in their review) I used 1 1/2 tsp paprika and a full tsp of garlic powder. I also cut the potatoes into smaller chunks and microwaved for just a minute and a half before adding them. The chicken was very juicy and tender, and I'll definitely be making this again.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies III

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2013
Very good, but too much almond extract! Like at least one other reviewer said, the almond seems to overpower the other flavors. Next time, I'll try this recipe with half the almond extract, and more white chocolate chips and macadamias (I think the recipe could use at least a 1/4 cup extra of the white choc and the nuts).

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies IV

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
Very good recipe, will definitely make these again. I put my dough in the fridge for 15 minutes before putting the balls on the baking sheet, and then baked the cookies at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Oh My Gosh Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
I can eat these all day! So delicious and moist. I baked these in baking cups rather than greasing the muffin pan, and only baked for 22 minutes at 350 degrees. Personally, I've found that they taste better when I use ripe bananas. They were still good with bright yellow bananas, but better when they're ripe. I also like to use a pinch more baking soda to get more rise, and I like milk chocolate chips, rather than semi-sweet.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
I wish I could give this cake more than 5 stars. It was the best chocolate cake that I've had in a long time, and unbelievably easy to make. Like other reviewers, I was worried that the cake would get dry, so I baked at 350 for 30 minutes, and then for another 22 minutes, the oven was at about 330-340 (just a notch lower). Came out perfectly!
