Oatie Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
This recipe makes the best chocolate chip cookies! I took the advice of the previous reviewer and ground only half of the oatmeal to flour. This is the first chocolate chip cookie recipe I've made in quite a while that turned out perfectly consistent cookies... Still chewy, not DRY and crumbly.... Even down to the last cookie in jar! I made the large batch as given and they didn't even last our family a week. Look forward to trying the freezing suggestion. Thank you SO much for this wonderful recipe. Your graciousness will be cherished by our family for life. (recipe may just make it in to our holiday festivities in the form of a stocking stuffer ;)

Skillet Ham, Cabbage and Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2007
Very good recipe. Just make sure you use as it states: a SMALL head of cabbage. I had so much cabbage that the remaining ingredients seemed like they were but mere condiments than main ingredients. Also, be careful as to not overcook the potatoes. Tried it with Kielbasa this time around. And used broth as others suggested for added flavor. The dish did take a little longer than stated in the recipe, but all in all it's very easy, yet very tasty. Even those in our family that don't typically care for cabbage liked it. Look forward to making it again and again until I get the timing and ingredient portions just right for perfection. Thank you for this great keeper of a recipe! Can see this making a great tasting soup base as well.

Greek Pasta Salad I

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2007
Very, very good. Makes alot and keeps well in the fridge for a quick munchy. As per my own family's tastebuds, I cut back the Red Wine vinegar to just a 1/4 cup. Also added an approx. cup of chopped fresh spinach, some seeded and chopped cucumber, and some minced garlic. Usually only buy this kind of salad pre-made at the store... So it's nice to now know how to make it ourselves which makes it even better. Thank you for posting this recipe. A keeper for us for sure!

Gravy Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2007
Recipe is pretty good base to start from. Even better with sauteed mushrooms, onions, and Tbs. of Worcestire sauce added into the sauce. Just be sure to adjust your salt accordingly as the Worcestire is plenty salty in itself. Additionally, 4 or 5 potatoes thinly sliced then sauteed in tbs. butter for a few mins. with Tbs. or so of fresh chopped parsley and tsp. or so minced garlic.... then layer these on the bottom of your greased casserole before adding the chops. Increase the milk in this recipe to 1 and 1/4 cups to accomodate for the potato addition and pour over chops and potatoes. Cover, then bake for 30 mins. Remove cover and continue baking until potatoes are done to fork tender (approx. additional 15-20 mins.) You could also shake n' bake your pork chops prior to browning for an additional flare. Sprinkle dish with remaining bread crumbs or shake n' bake mixture for some crunchiness. Serves great with steamed fresh green beans or asparagus and a loaf of fresh bread or dinner rolls. This is an easy yet wonderfully tasty comfort meal. And the recipe is flexible enough for adjusting to your own family's tastes and tradition. Fast and troublefree enough to make during a busy weeknight that tastes like you've been slaving at the stove for hours. Definitely a keeper for the recipe box. Would also work well with chicken breasts.

Chuck Roast with Homemade Noodles

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2007
The best of the best. Who knew making noodles was so easy? Messy, yes. But easy? Surprised myself. Making extra noodles and broth turned out to be a good tip as they were so delicious. We also added green beans to the cooking noodles and they turned out perfect w/ the sauce... Just don't add them too soon as to get too soft and overcooked. Would be great with carrots as well. The meat was so tender and juicy. The dish made great for leftovers as well. (though too good to be left for long ;) Thanks for this wonderful, wonderful keeper of a recipe. It's sure to become tradition in our kitchen for years to come.

Chicken and Bow Tie Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2007
YUM! However, thanks to the advice of previous reviewers, I altered the original a bit by doing the following: Seasoned chicken breasts in cajun seasoning then sauteed in olive oil and 1 Tbs. minced garlic and 1/2 onion chopped. Then cubed the meat rather than pulling. For the sauce I added the other half of the chopped onion to the broth and broccoli. I also only used one container of the cream cheese as it seemed rich enough at taste after the first, then added 1 cup heavy cream and 2 Tbs. flour as thickener in place. Added cajun seasoning (tsp?) and the tasty browned onion-garlic goodness from the chicken pan to finish off the sauce. Served over penne. Super easy, extremely delicious, and seemingly flexible for variation. A keeper for sure! THANKS for posting!
