Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2014
My bread machine also instructs users to prevent the yeast from coming in contact with water prior to mixing and kneading. I, however, followed the recipe as written (aside from adding an extra half teaspoon of salt). The temperature of the water is very important too. This recipe was so easy. I set the bread machine as directed and left it alone. My family loved it on its own, plain! The outside was crusty but the inside was heavenly soft and delicious!

Easy Indian Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2014
Delicious! I understand it's not for those watching their health, but it is my absolute favorite Indian dish. It's called BUTTER chicken. The indulgent sauce is what makes it amazing! This recipe turned out better than some Indian restaurants around Hampton Roads, VA. Still looking for a good one... The sauce seemed a bit thin though. I saw another recipe that stated authentic chicken makhani is thickened with pureed cashews. I'm going to try that one next. Also, I had to make my own garam and tandoori masala mix. The nearest ethnic food store is through the tunnel about 25 minutes away and I wasn't about to make my appetite wait any longer.

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2014
Perfect. I followed the recipe pretty much in its entirety. The only things I did different were scrambling an egg for the egg wash, sprinkling with Italian herbs, and adding a bit of water to the oven while baking. The baguettes were delicious straight out of the oven!

Spicy Sausage Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2013
I was hesitant about making something with so many eggs but this recipe turned out great! My 13-year-old turned up her nose at first but enjoyed it very much. My 8-year-old scarfed it down with no complaints which is equivalent to "yum." This dish is so versatile. I may try spinach and feta cheese next time. I did make a few changes: - Included diced red bell pepper for color and flavor - Doubled the amount of jalapeno and added extra onion - Sauteed the veggies until fragrant and tender - Used Italian sausage as well as breakfast sausage (didn't have enough) - Added a bit of milk to the eggs and thickened with some flour - Mixed in Adobo seasoning, cayenne pepper, and red pepper flakes for more of a kick

Best Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2013
Good base recipe but I made so many changes to suit our taste. As written, I could see that it would end up dry. I incorporated all the cheese which included Gouda and extra sharp cheddar, then added bit of white cheddar on top. I used fresh mushrooms but canned peas and added diced garlic. The onion, garlic and mushrooms were sautéed in butter. When mixing all the ingredients, I used a family size can of soup, and still found it to be way too dry. I added 1/4 a cup of sour cream and splashes of milk. Instead of potato chips, I used regular panko breadcrumbs sautéed in butter with chives and red pepper flakes. I tasted the mixture and it was bland, so I added salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and Old Bay. Once I had the mixture in the 9x13 dish, it still looked too dry so I splashed it with a bit more milk. Finally, I added the white cheddar on top, then the panko, and baked it for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees. Delish! It's definitely a grown up version of tuna casserole with added flavor and texture.

Broccoli and Cauliflower Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2013
As written, this casserole definitely lacks flavor so I use salt, black pepper, cayenne, parsely and Old Bay. I put Old Bay on almost anything! I make a variation of this recipe almost every week. I include diced chicken breast, sauteed in onions and garlic, and omit the rice. Instead of cream of chicken, I use cream of mushroom soup with a couple tablespoons of milk added and some fresh mushrooms. Also, I experiment with different shredded cheeses each time. I love sharp cheddar, while processed cheese (to me) is an abomination... The cauliflower needs to cook longer than the broccoli, so I'd recommend blanching the cauliflower first and leaving the broccoli raw. Lastly, I use a mixture of regular Panko breading and chipotle Panko. I sautee in a bit of butter and spread a ridiculous amount on top. Throw it in the oven until cheese is melty, breadcrumbs are browned, the veggies are tender and it is heated through (around 20 minutes at 350 degrees). Perfection! Sometimes I serve on top of rice if it's a comfort food type of day/week/month. Otherwise, I eat it alone as a main dish and don't feel as guilty. This is a good starter recipe that you can tweak and make your own.

Beefy Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
We have a picky family. My husband is Puerto Rican and nothing is ever spicy enough for him. My 8-year-old is really picky, everything is either too salty, too spicy, too creamy, too gross... My 3-year-old thinks ketchup, ranch dressing, and cheese are main course meals. Well, this recipe blew them all away. My husband was commenting on how good it was 5 hours after dinner, my 8-year-old packed some for school lunch today, and my 3-year-old ate everything on his plate without any threats at all. I made only a few changes: 1 tbsp minced garlic 1/2 green bell pepper 1/4 onion 1 can of sweet corn 1 can of stewed tomatoes (14 oz) 2.5 cups of water to 1 cup of rice (per other reviewers) I added to taste: ketchup Tapatio sauce chili powder ground cumin salt pepper I served with shredded Mexican cheese and Tostitos. Awesome recipe! I threw in a lot of spices, I hope I can duplicate the results again.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: May 18, 2007
These cookies are fantastic. I've tried 3 different recipes this week and these had the best consistency. As I mixed the ingredients, not once did the dough turn dry as other reviewers mentioned. It was perfectly smooth. I refrigerated the dough for two hours as a previous reviewer recommended and made smaller cookies (24 instead of 18). Then baked at 325 degrees for 15 minutes. Any shorter and they would have been undercooked. These came out chewy on the bottom and the sides, and soft on the top. Perfect!

Easy Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2006
Great base recipe. My husband is Puerto Rican AND does most of the cooking. He LOVES spicy food and I'm rarely able to get it up to par. I sauteed the chicken in garlic and yellow onions. I added salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, and a bit of chicken broth. I poured the chicken juices into the rice mixture. I used a few more ounces of cream of chicken soup, and added more milk during stirring when the rice seemed to dry up. Also, because I cooked the chicken before baking, the baking time was only 45 minutes. The rice was perfectly done. During the last 5 minutes, I added garlic flavored bread crumbs and shredded cheddar and monterey jack cheese to the top. It was awesome. My husband only had to add a bit of tabasco sauce and declared it perfect.

Hamburger Hash

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2006
This was a great recipe. However, I made a lot of personal touches with the recommendations of other reviewers. I added chopped carrots, minced garlic, garlic salt, salt, black pepper and Worcestershire sauce. My husband [who is the chef of the family] said he loved it, and didn't have to add any seasoning at all. My picky 5 yr old said it was her favorite food from now on! Great recipe!

Tomato Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2005
This recipe is very good and easy to make. I did change it a bit though. When preparing the chicken, I dipped it into the beaten eggs and then the bread crumbs twice. I did not fry the chicken. I just it in the oven for 40 minutes, then added the tomato sauce and shredded Monterey Jack cheese in the last 10 minutes... This has become a favorite in our family!
