Shrimp with Broccoli in Garlic Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2013
Hubs said this one is a "do it again". I used mushrooms instead of the water chestnuts, and served this over angel hair pasta. The sauce could use a little "kick". Next time I will add some crushed red pepper. Good recipe!

Mrs. Schaller's Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2013
This is not a bad cookie, it's just very different than your normal, everyday sugar cookie. I would describe it as a very soft, almost cake-like cookie. It is not real sweet. It almost reminded me of a slightly sweet cornbread. That's what it tasted like to me. The finished cookie even has a slightly yellow color to it, like cornbread. The dough is a bit difficult to work with, because as soon as you roll it out, it warms up and can stick. You need to work in extra flour before rolling out, and make sure your surface is WELL floured. Don't roll it too thin. I would say about 1/4" thickness worked best. Well floured, and at this thickness, it was very easy to cut with a cookie cutter, and remove the excess dough without it sticking to the surface (I rolled mine on a large silicone mat, which I always use when making cut-out cookies - works great). I chose to frost mine with a butter cream frosting and decorate with sprinkles for Valentine's Day.

Red Pepper and Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2013
I used milk instead of the water, as always do with condensed tomato soup. I also halved the spices, and still found the spices to over power the tomato flavor. If you like a spicy tomato soup, then maybe this is recipe is for you. For me, when I have tomato soup, I like to taste the tomato, and have it be the predominant flavor. We all ate it with our grilled mozzarella paninis, but it's probably not a recipe that I'd make again.

Sour Cream Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
Oh my . . . this bread is delicious! I usually make the same banana bread recipe all of the time, but thought I'd venture out and try something a little different. The addition of sour cream in this one sure does add to the moistness of this bread. My daughter has been bugging me to make banana bread for a few weeks now. She's going to be one happy camper when she gets home from school today, that's for sure! This is one for the recipe box! Thanks Grandma Diane!

Chocolate Bar Pie I

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
I was in the mood to make a dessert for dinner tonight, so I went to the pantry to see what was calling out to me. I had a graham cracker crust that had been in there awhile, and really needed to be used up. So, I did an ingredient search for graham cracker crust . . . I was also looking for a "faceless" recipe (one without a photo). This one fit the bill! I didn't exactly have all of the ingredients that it called for, so I had to improvise! The chocolate bars is what I was missing, but I did have a handful of Hershey's hugs (left over from making pretzel smoochies), some M&Ms and a bowl of chocolate that was left over from my Christmas baking. I weighed out the chocolate to come out the same as if I had the candy bars, and it turned out WONDERFUL! The red & pink M&Ms initially turned the chocolate a funky color, but as soon as they melted, it was fine. I topped it with a few slivered almonds and some chocolate shavings. Thanks for this quick and easy pie recipe! One I'll be making again for sure.

Pretzel Smoochies

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2013
I've made these a couple of times now, and they are always a hit! Sweet and salty all in one bite - who wouldn't love that? Couple of tips . . . 1)These melt FAST! Don't walk away from the oven. Keep a close eye on them. Mine took about 1-1/2 minutes . .. I removed, and you really need to let them sit for a minute before trying to place the M&M. 2)This recipe DOES NOT work with the "filled" kisses (cherry flavored, caramel, mint, etc). I tried it, it doesn't work. The filling just gushes out and makes a huge mess. ONLY use regular Hershey kisses, or the PLAIN HUGS. 3) I recommend using Reynolds non-stick foil or a silicone baking mat. Removal is a breeze with both of these, as long as you make sure they are set before removing. 4) To speed setting, place cookie sheet in the frig for a few minutes, but if you leave them refrigerated, the chocolate will turn white. Thanks for sharing this fast, easy, creative recipe!

Baked Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2013
I made this to take to our friends house for the Super Bowl yesterday. It was a big hit! The only thing I did different was cut back on the blue cheese dressing a bit. Using a rotisserie chicken made this so easy to throw together.

White Cake Frosting II

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2013
Great frosting! I wanted a bit of butter flavor, so I used about 3 Tbls. of butter, and the rest shortening. I added about 1/2 tsp of butter flavoring as well. This was a perfect amount of frosting to frost a dozen of cupcakes, with about 1 cup left over (which I plan to use when I make my Valentine's cookies in a few days). I will use this one again, that's for sure!

Blueberry Buttermilk Coffeecake

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2013
We enjoyed this! Very moist from the buttermilk, and not too sweet. Great with a nice cup of coffee. I did add about 1 tsp. of cinnamon to the topping, just because. Thanks!

Thai Curry Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
I made only a few minor adjustments to the recipe, which I'm sure didn't alter the final results much. I used chicken instead of shrimp. I cut the chicken in thin strips, cooked it a bit in the oil, removed, then continued with the recipe, adding the chicken back in towards the end. I also used lemon grass powder (about 1/2 tsp.) instead of fresh lemon grass, left out the soy sauce and added a couple of squirts of fish sauce. Also used brown sugar instead of the white. It was fantastic! Very similar to "The Best Thai Coconut Soup" recipe, also on this site, which is another favorite of ours. I did enjoy the addition of the spinach in this recipe though. Hubs said it's a "do again"! Thanks for sharing!

Linguine Pasta with Shrimp and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2013
We really enjoyed this. I made my own sauce, and also used homemade fresh linguine. I took Cindy's advice, and added some cream (my sauce had fresh basil already). It was delicious! Hubs wanted a little more "kick", so next time I will add a little red pepper flakes while I'm sauteing the shrimp. Thanks Cindy!

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2013
Cook once, eat twice! I love these kind of recipes. I made this yesterday using a pork tenderloin. The only thing I left out was the coriander, because I didn't have any. Cooked it in the slow cooker on medium for 4 hours and it was done. Shredded easily, and smelled wonderful! I served it last night over Mexican rice with a bit of salsa on top. Today I added some BBQ sauce to the rest, and we had BBQ sandwiches tonight for dinner. Two completely different meals using this cooking method. Will make this again. Thanks!

Provincial Tomatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2012
We love these! I've made them twice in the past two weeks . . . The first time I used half tomatoes and half zucchini. I subbed half Parmesan and half pecorino, and panko for the bread crumbs . . . Just to use what I had on hand. They turned out delicious! Very easy and make a nice presentation.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies III

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2012
I used half butter, half regular Crisco, and they turned out beautiful. Just like the ones that you get from the Great American Cookie place in the mall!

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2012
Delicious! Even my Italian hubby thought it was the bomb! We did need to adjust the cooking time though, and I didn't really measure the broth . . . just made sure that I had a nice big pan of hot broth available to keep adding from. I used to ask my MIL "how much" of something in a recipe . . . and she say "as much as it takes" . . . which is the case in this recipe with the broth. You have to keep adding slowly, cooking & stirring until the rice is done. Mine cooked for probably 45 - 50 minutes before the rice was done. You have to taste and see . . . don't just go by the time in the recipe. If you follow this advise, you will end up with five star restaurant quality risotto! Buon Appetito!

Tart Lemon Triangles

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2012
These are perfect! Not too sweet, and not too tart . . . but oh, just right! I baked mine in a tart pan, and topped it with a few fresh raspberries. The kids loved them!

Perfect Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
Excellent! I scaled this back for a 2 lb. butt roast, and cooked it on low-med in my slow cooker for about 5 hours. Nice and tender, and shredded easily. Threw in some BBQ sauce, and it's ready for dinner tonight!

Mediterranean Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2012
We usually fix salmon the same way all of the time, so I was looking for something different, and this fit the bill! We really enjoyed this with our Panzanella salad tonight. The flavors in both dishes complimented each other so well. I did cut back a bit on the olive oil to make it more WW friendly.
