Easter Meat Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
A great new dish in our house! (Especially, considering we live on a farm with 30 hens.) It was a new twist with familiar ingredients. I followed to the letter including the top crust. It tastes excellent with or without the extra crust. I used the Basic Flaky Pie Crust from this site.

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins I

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
I made these for Easter brunch. Fabulous! I followed the recipe exactly. (Okay, I did scale down the poppy seeds by about half, but that was it.) This recipe lacks for absolutely nothing!!! I love the glaze and the technique for poking holes in the muffin (I used a fork and stuck each muffin 5xs.) They were so pretty, moist, and everything I could want for a muffin.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
I'm not big on soup usually but this oh sweet heaven perfection! Another abnormal for me I never review unless I follow the recipe to the T, but this recipe can stand on its own!!! Out of chili beans at home so I subbed with baked beans - No beer so chicken broth it was- Only 1 can of tomatoes so I threw in salsa. People were eating the soup so fast I didnt have time to dollop sour cream and cheese so I stirred in 1 cup of sour cream to the batch and threw in some stale doritos crumbs. A realistic meal for the frazzled cook at home!!!!

Banana Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
These are delicious! I was a little skeptical at first seeing some 2-3 star reviews, but after tasting I rushed to my pc to write the review! What I did: DOUBLED THE RECIPE (otherwise bars are too thin in 9x13), ADDED AN EXTRA BANANA, ADDED 1 TSP. BANANA EXTRACT TO BATTER AND FROSTING, FOR FROSTING I OMITTED THE SALT AND REPLACED THE VANILLA EXTRACT W/ A HALF TSP. OF MAPLE EXTRACT. MORE BAKE TIME. Results are to die for! Enjoy!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Very good cookies. Dough is a bit sticky but that's a given very easy to work with. Made a cute autumn cookie for my son's class.

Romanian Apple Cake

Superb quality and simplicity. Followed the recipe to the letter. Gets better every day. Moist and an old world spice sweet. The perfect texture - I've never had a cake set so consistently as this one. Thank-you!!!!

Yay for an easy summer dessert. Cool and refreshing. Malinda's review was spot on. I got a lil' carried away and used two tubs of lite cool whip. Perfect!

Simple Southwestern Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
This was good.I did find it a little bitter. Might cut down the seasoning if I ever make it again.

Savory Roll Ups

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
Not exactly an inspiring dish, but very tasty. Might as well make chicken cordon blue. Same amount of work for a more impressive flavor.

Angel Lush

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
I've used this recipe for years! It's gorgeous! Great for when you are in a pinch. I love to double the filling and fill the hole in the middle of my cake with the extra filling and sliced strawberries. Canned whip cream for the top with whole or halved strawberries on the little white clouds of goodness really add an extra wow. Enjoy!

Crunchy Tuna Turnovers

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
These really went over well with my family. (recipe stores well too) I used Sour Cream and Cheddar chips -very pretty. I feel obligated to say these were salty. If salt is not for you try a no-salt chip for the coating. The filling was very good. The olives are a must in this recipe very complimentary to the dish. I used colby jack cheese and used a little more than the recipe called for (and doubled the lemon pepper). I've done this recipe both ways by splitting the biscuits or using a whole biscuit for each turnover. The filling is more noticeable when the biscuits are split.

Potluck Spareribs

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
I love this recipe! It's so simple and I can get perfect BBQ without the hassle of marinating or sauteing. The ribs are always juicy and the meat just falls off the bone. They look gorgeous when done. I do let them cook COVERED for 15 mins with the sauce. Then I uncover them for the 35 min bake or until I think the sauce looks "gooey" enough. I also use a little more sauce than the recipe calls for but rather than making a new batch I throw in about a cup of my fave BBQ sauce. Minced garlic is another must. I add about 1-2 tablespoons.

Beef Barley Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
A very good soup. The extra steps are worth it versus putting it all in the crock pot. The texture overall is more appealing and vibrant. The sugar is a great idea to compliment the tomato. I also threw in 1 tsp of minced garlic. Everyone kept going back for more!

Fresh Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
This cake is absolutely perfect! My only complaint is my family started cutting away at my beautiful creation before I could take a picture to post. I followed the recipe as is. I did add a little, too. After I put the brown sugar mix in I sprinkled coconut on top and then layered the pineapple and added some maraschino cherries to the design. I made two cakes and after they cooled I stacked them. SIMPLY WONDERFUL - especially the cake's texture and the way the candied sauce just melts into the cake without making it soggy. Someone said they didn't know what stiff but not dry egg whites meant. When you hit that foamy looking stage turn your mixer up and keep going for another minute or so. The egg whites will leave ripples and look shiny.

Savory Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2008
These were really good. If I had to grade them on a scale of 10 it would be a 6.5. After having the Soft, Moist, and Gooey Cinnamon Buns recipe on here though these didn't quite shine. I do appreciate the fact they didn't need eggs. And I firmly believe any cinnamon roll should only be iced with a cream cheese frosting. Overall, worth the time and effort.

Tiny Chicken Turnovers

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2008
I was really impressed with the filling. Its a very rich food including the crust. I would suggest either cutting the salt to half or using unsalted butter in the crust. The fresh pastry is worth the time!

Creamy Pear Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
This was really good and very simple. Pies are not my specialty so when they turn out as gorgeous as this one did its pretty fool proof. I did have to play with the flour and sugar amount since the pears I used were very juicy. It's texture reminds me of peaches and cream desserts. Very pleased with all aspects. Will use from now on when my pear crop comes in. :)

Biscotti

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2008
Awesome! It's a pretty classic recipe so I doubled it the first time round. The cookies are in the oven toasting as I type and some of them didn't make it to the second stage! Oops! I'm gonna try orange oil next with a white chocolate cream cheese glaze.

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
I buy the biggest foil dish I can find and triple (sometimes quadruple) this recipe and when I'm done just toss the pan. No mess and I have enough meals to keep me out of the kitchen for awhile!
