Dill Pickle Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2007
I loved this bread. It made great toast and I also used it for sandwiches. It was soft and moist and wonderful. I substituted most of the water for pickle juice and I also added a bit of sugar to ensure that it would rise correctly. I don't have a bread machine so I made it the good old fashioned way. I do think next time I will either cut my pickles much smaller or perhaps run them through the food processor quickly because my chunks were a bit too large and kept falling out of the bread.

Two Step Creamy Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2006
This gets 5 stars just for the sheer fact that this was the easiest thing I've ever made and it seems wrong somehow for it to have tasted as good as it did. My 5yo daughter wanted to make cheesecake for Christmas dessert so I wanted something easy that she could help with and this was it!!! I'll admit it doesn't have that dense richness of "real" cheesecake but I'm willing to forgo that for convenience sake. It was creamy and delicious. The entire family loved it. My husband did say he found it a bit too sweet so I may cut the sugar down some next time but even that didn't stop him from eating more than once slice. Great recipe. I'll be making cheesecake more often now.

Pork Chops in Beer

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2006
I liked this recipe although it received mixed reviews from my family which is why it rated so low. My husband HATED it. He wouldn't even finish his porkchop. He said it was the most disgusting sauce he'd ever tasted. Meanwhile my 4 and 5 year old were dipping their side dishes (broccoli and mashed potatoes) in the sauce and my 4yo was even eating it with a spoon and wanted seconds on sauce. My oldest son said it was just so so. If I do make it again I would cut down the liquid to make a thicker sauce, it was very thin. But it reminded me of the sweet and sour sauce we get here when we order chinese takeout (almost the same color too lol). I thought it was pretty good but I don't think it's going to make it in my house.

Kielbasa Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
This was a great soup. I made very few changes. Basically I just upped the water by a cup and I added the appropriate amount of boullion for each cup of water (per package instructions....ie 1 cube for each cup of water) I kept everything else the same. My husband raved about the flavor of the broth. My 4 year old son usually drinks the broth and picks the meat out of the soup and leaves the rest. With this soup he ate the whole bowl. This is definitely a keeper--a quick, easy and tasty meal to have anytime. Especially on a chilly fall evening.

Garlic Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
I made this for Thanksgiving dinner as it seemed to be a quick and easy way to jazz up ordinary brussels sprouts. I upped the butter and olive oil to tablespoons instead of teaspoons because it just didn't seem like enough in the pan. I also used frozen brussels sprouts. I didn't change anything else though. I thought they had a great garlic flavor. Really delicious. I don't think I'll be cooking them any other way.

Refrigerator Pickles

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2006
First off I need to say that for my entire life I have HATED sweet pickles. My husband also is not a fan of sweet pickles. We have now been converted!!! These pickles were so yummy they only lasted for 5 days. We loved and ate it all--the onions the peppers, I even ate the few cloves of garlic that I threw in. I can't wait to go back to the farm stand and get more cucumbers. I will DEFINITELY be making another jar full.

Chili Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2006
I made this in the crock pot this morning so it would cook for lunch while I was working on some chores. I threw everything in raw--except the chicken which I quickly cooked in the microwave. Any substitutions were made strictly because I was trying to clean out my fridge. For the veggies I used some leftover baby carrots and green beans, I also added some fresh garlic and salt and pepper. I upped the chili powder to 1 1/2 teaspoons. I also threw in a handful of tricolor pasta for the last half hour. This was really really good. I think maybe next time I will add the extra can of cream of chicken that other reviewers used. I really have no complaints. My kids and I have been picking at it all day. This is a must have for your recipe box.

Pasta e Fagioli I

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2006
I give it 4 stars because this soup was really yummy as far as the broth was concerned. At first I found it a little too tomato-y so I cut it with a couple more cups of broth. Everything else I kept the same except that I used dried parsely instead of fresh. It did seem to be lacking something though. I haven't had pasta e fagioli in many many years so I'm not sure what. I was thinking some sort of meat and some extra veggies would have been great. My 4 and 3 year olds liked it and the 3 year old had seconds so it will be a keeper. Very economical too. Good recipe.

Garlic Bread

Reviewed: May 12, 2006
I found this bread to be a little on the heavy side. I used 4 cloves of garlic and it was still not garlicky enough for my tastes. The bread did have a good flavor and my family enjoyed it quite a bit but it just wasn't quite what I was looking for. I think next time I will add garlic to my own bread recipe but Thanks anyway

Onion Bread II

Reviewed: May 12, 2006
I make bread quite often and was looking for some new ideas to try. I will definitely make this again. I personally would have liked a stronger onion flavor and it did seem to intensify when toasted. This bread makes for excellent toast. It had a wonderful soft texture as well. My onions burned on top of the bread too, I might wait a bit before putting them on next time. Great recipe

Army SOS Creamed Ground Beef

Reviewed: May 12, 2006
This just seemed kind of blah to me. It was quick and easy to prepare but I've done the same type of recipe with instant brown gravy mix and had better, more flavorful results. It was just OK, however my 3 year old son LOVED it. He ate two good sized portions of it and thanked me for making it.

Brown Jug Soup

Reviewed: May 4, 2006
I make a soup that tastes very similar to this but my dh always complains it's too thin--he likes a very thick soup. This was Perfect. Both of us liked it so much better than the recipe I have. It's thick, creamy, chunky.....YUM. I didn't have any mixed veggies so I just added whatever leftovers I had in the fridge (some corn and carrots) along with the broccoli. I can't express how yummy this was. My two little ones loved it. My youngest kept stealing spoonsful while the cheese was still melting. Great Recipe.

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2006
Ok I changed this recipe a bit to suit the likes of my family. I added some onion to the browning sausage. Omitted the spinach simply because we didn't have it. Changed the zuchini to mixed vegetables and some mushrooms because we are mushroom freaks. I didn't have Italian tomatoes but I used regular diced tomatoes. I also added some Italian seasoning. This has quickly become a family favorite and my husband asks for it now almost weekly. It takes no time at all to throw together and tastes like you've slaved all day. It's rich and hearty and what more can I say....We love it.
