Creamy Chicken Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2014
I made this with some leftover turkey from thanksgiving. It's a good base, though I did make some changes to give it more flavor. First I sauteed a small yellow onion, celery and garlic in a small amount of butter; increased the amount of thyme to 1 tsp. and added a few dashes of cayenne pepper. I also increased the amount of chicken stock and added a little heavy cream because I didn't have more half n half to add and as I used a larger size pkg. of tortellini it needed more liquid. I did cut the cream of chicken soup down to one can because I didn't want it to taste like canned soup.

New Orleans Barbequed Shrimp

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2014
This was pretty good. I did add 4 cloves of crushed garlic to mine in place of the garlic powder. Definitely quick and easy.

Hamburger Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2014
I used this as a base idea and went from there. Instead of using sliced potatoes I used frozen shredded hashbrowns. I used an entire onion and cooked it along with several cloves of garlic with the meat. I also added sour cream, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, garlic powder and parsley to the liquids. I mixed everything together and poured into a casserole to bake. Turned out pretty good especially considering how simple it was.

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2014
This turned out beautifully though I have to add an additional 1/2 cup of flour like all other bread recipes due to my bread machine. My hubby loves this bread for his sandwiches. Thanks for sharing.

Honey Wheat Sandwich Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2014
These were really good though they were a little sweet to me. Next time I may add a little more salt or cut back on the honey a bit to even them out.

Ground Beef Curly Noodle

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2014
Not bad, much better than expected. I did add 1 cup of finely chopped onion while browning the meat, used 2 pkgs. of noodles and 1-1/2 pkgs. of the seasoning, added 1 can of peas/carrots though next time I'll cut that back to 1/2 a can. I felt it could have used additional seasonings maybe some hot peppers of some kind.

Grilled Leftover Ham and Pineapple Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
After reading the reviews, I made several changes to adapt the sandwiches to our own tastes. I used soft cream cheese with chives and smeared it on dark Rye bread, then I put on a layer of crushed pineapple which is all I had on hand, sprinkled just a little Worcestershire sauce on that. Next the ham, sprinkled a little sharp cheddar cheese and spread a thin layer of Dijon mustard on the other piece of bread. Grilled until toasted and cheese was melted. Not bad and I think the mustard and Worcestershire sauce gave it a nice depth in flavor. Not the best sandwich I've ever had but it's a nice change when you have lots of ham leftover.

Hot Cranberry Tea

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2013
I've been looking for this recipe for years and am so excited to finally find it. I had it at a school Christmas function when my daughter was young and failed to get the recipe from the woman who brought it. I didn't have any whole cloves on hand so I put a couple of dashes of ground cloves in it. It was absolutely wonderful, though my husband asked for me to add another 1/2 cup of sugar to it which I didn't think it needed. Thanks for sharing this with us.

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2013
This was really good bread, but the first batch was really sticky when getting it out of the bread machine. So like every other bread I've mixed/made in my bread machine my second batch got an additional 1/2 cup of flour and it turned out beautifully. Both batches tasted wonderful just the first didn't rise quite as well as the 2nd.

Delicious Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
First off let me say this is a great base casserole. That being said I gave it 4 stars as for our tastes I needed to do quite a bit of tweaking to it. First, I chopped 1/2 cup of onion and celery and cooked those in 2 Tbsp. butter until tender. I added these to the soup mixture. I interpreted the recipe to actually call for 1 cup uncooked rice, meaning I actually used 2 cups of cooked rice. I omitted the onion powder and added about 1 tsp. poultry seasoning which really helped the taste a lot.

Cranberry Nut Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
I gave it 4 stars since I made several changes. First I increased the berries to 1-1/2 cups and left them whole. Next I added an additional egg and 3 Tbsp. of sour cream as several people commented the bread was dry and/or crumbly. I also increase the sugar by 1/4 cup. I made an orange/powdered sugar drizzle to go on top. Wow, what a wonderful treat, hubby and I had 2 slices for breakfast when it came out of the oven. Definitely a keeper for the holiday season.

Freezer Caramel Drizzle Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2013
I was searching for this pie recipe after trying at a restaurant in St. Croix. This was definitely the pie though I don't think they used quite so much caramel sauce on theirs. This was extremely rich and really good though next time I think I'll use half as much caramel and maybe sprinkle some of the pecan/coconut mixture in the middle layer. I might even drizzle a very small amount of chocolate sauce on the top layer.

Southwest Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2013
I'm giving this 4 stars instead of 5 due to fact that I had to tweak it a little to suit our tastes. The changes I made included adding a can of green chiles, adding 1 Tbsp. of chili powder and used about 1 to 1-1/2 tsp. cumin instead of the pinch as called for. These few additions seemed to make a world of difference, at least for our family it did.

French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2013
This was really good though we thought the rosemary was a bit strong. The only change I made was I added a can of beef consomme in place of some of the water to give it a richer beef flavor. Served on hot french rolls with a slice of Provolone cheese and served with a Ramen Broccoli salad. Loved the fact that I could prepare it without heating up the kitchen during these hot summer days.

Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2013
Very nice. I did use more of the rub ingredients than the recipe called for but I wanted a depth to the flavor. I also let the pork loin rest for about an hour after applying the rub. I really enjoyed the tangy sauce.

Fluffy Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2013
These were good though I like buttermilk biscuits a little better. They were fluffy, easy to make and ever tender. I did double the recipe when I made them and used 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup shortening.

E-Z Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2013
These were pretty good and definitely easy. I doubled the recipe and increased the salt by 1/4 tsp. and yet still thought they were a little bland. Also, they were quite crumbly but I'm thinking that may have to do with doubling the recipe, next time I do I'll cut back a little on the baking powder and cream of tartar.
