Easy Sweet and Sour Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2012
I taught it was okay, but my husband and son didn't like it at all. Not going to be making this one again, unfortunately.

Rosemary Baked Potato Wedges

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2012
My husband and son thought these were good. I thought they were okay. I would have given 4 stars for taste, but dropped it to three because of the mess and the many of work involved.

Three Berry Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2012
Tasty pie. I increased the cornstarch and sugar as other reviews suggested and I'm glad I did. Into I might even try 1/3 c cornstarch next time and 3/4 c sugar. All in all it was a nice change from my normal blueberry pie, verne though that remains our favorite.

Marinade for Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2012
We enjoyed this recipe. It was a very simple, flavorful "grilled" taste. No "one" flavor stood out. Ver easy to put together and I used bs chicken breasts.

North German Gruenkohl (Kale) and Sausage

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2012
We enjoyed this. My husband isn't a huge fan of kielbasa, but had seconds of this and said he would eat it again. I served it over boiled red potatoes. Also, did add ham because I didn't have any, but I can see how it would be tasty.

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
These were really tasty. I only had 1 lb of gb but made the same amount of gravy. My husband said these were just as good as my normal Salisbury steaks, but these were much easier, so I think I have a new recipe!

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
This was fine, but it didn't knock our socks off. Probably won't make again. It was easy, but I agree with other reviewers that there wasn't enough sauce, and I only had 4 chops.

Jif® Peanut Butter Blossoms

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
These are perfect with the stated amount of peanut butter. I substituted butter and added 1/2 t cinnamon. I also baked them 8 minutes and put the kiss on then baked them 2 more minutes.

Sausage Smothered in Red Cabbage

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2011
I would give this 5 stars, but because my husband wasnt too fond of it, I had to take it down to 4. I liked the fact that the cabbage wasnt your typical sweet, spiced red cabbage. Cooking the sausage in the cabbage gave it a wonderful flavor. The only thing I did differently was to sautee the onion in the dutch oven first and then just add the cabbage- really no need to dirty 2 pans. I also chopped the cabbage an onion into larger bit size pieces rather than shredding and dicing. Very tasty! Served with pierogies and sour cream.

Roxie's Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
I used fiber one cereal, substituted canola oil for the butter and added a 1/2 t baking powder and 1 t vanilla as mentioned in other reviews. Next time I plan on using brown sugar and a little extra liquid in place of the honey. These will go on my regular breakfast rotation. They were very good!

White Chocolate Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2011
Im giving these five stars because if I had followed the original recipe, thats what they would have been. I followed other reviewers advice and added the juice from the orange. While this did make the orange flavor stronger, this morning the cookies are a little too moisy- like falling apart. Next time I might locate some orange extract and add that in addition to the zest. I did add 1/2 t vanilla for another layer of flavor and I would keep this addition. Overall, a really teriffic cookie! Can wait to make them again and follow the directions. :)

Shanghai Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2011
This was really tasty- my 5 year old son had seconds! I halved the recipe, but made all of the dressing and marinated some chicken thighs in the sauce then grilled them. Very good. I will make this again.

Mock Champagne

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
I got a lot of compliments on this... I didnt make the ring because I dont own a punch bowl (and didnt need 40 servings) so I mixed the white grape juice and the pineapple juice in a pitcher, froze a tall glass of white grape juice and then put it in the mixture. It lasted for a 4 hour party and I even refilled the pitcher once. I served with the ginger ale on the side so guests could "mix" their own drink and then garnished with a frozen blackberry. Very pretty.

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
If I personally were giving this stars, it would be about 4, but because my guests scarfed it down and went back for seconds and thirds, it gets a five. I made as stated with sausage. I also made an all vegetable, which would have been better had I cooked the mushrooms longer prior to baking- it turned out a little watery. Overall really easy recipe. I made the night before and baked in the morning.

Bill's Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2011
Very tasty, but very rich! This makes an excellent dip or sandwich topper but I dont think I could use it on a salad, a little too thick for my taste....

Buffalo Chicken Burgers with Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2011
These were excellent! I grilled them indoors on a grill pan and it worked perfectly. Not sure how they would have held up on grill grates though, they were a little mushy but firmed up with cooking. I used Franks Red Hot buffalo sauce and added a bit of garlic, salt and pepper. Omitted the cayenne due to families taste but I think this was unnecessary as we all ended up dipping the sandwiches in the buffalo sauce (incluing my 5 yr old who at 1 1/2 of these!!) I will be making these again as I no longer need to go out to fulfill my buffalo cravings!

Mama's Asian Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
This was excellent. I substituted the ginger for the five spice powder, but I will try it next time as stated. I also omitted the orange peel since I didnt hav an orange, but I think I may use lemon zest next time instead because I can see where something was missing. I also dusted the chicken with cornstarch prior to cooking for a nice authentic look.
