Indian Chicken Curry (Murgh Kari)

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
AMAZING! will cut back the cayenne by about half next time, I like spicy but its really spicy! Be careful not to over cook the chicken and would be good with chicken cut into bite sized pieces and then serve over rice, and maybe side of stir fry veggies.

Fry Bread Tacos II

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
This is awesome!! Closest thing to Taco Bell chalupas you can have at home! I didn't use the filling part of it. I just used ground beef with Taco Bell taco seasoning and everyone made their own with sour cream, cheese, tomato, salsa, lettuce, etc. I used about 1/2 c. dough for each and rolled it very thin with a rolling pin. I fried it in my deep fryer on one side then kind of bent it in half when I flipped it. I did do what a couple people suggested and add 2 t. oil to the dough. Was amazing!!!

Happy Shrimp

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
This was definitely happy shrimp! Happy mouth anyway! I was making it for 5 of us and was glad that I saw others say it didn't make all that much! I doubled it, plus used a whole pint of whipping cream instead of the 2/3 it would have been doubled. There was just enough with one serving left, which I am sure someone will snag for lunch tomorrow! I did not put the basil, tomatoes or green onion in until the cream had thickened. I didn't think those ingredients should cook so long. I put them in right at the end. I added a 1/3 cup parmesan cream and a little pinch of red pepper flakes also. I served it over angel hair pasta. Was amazing!!

Creamy Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
This was sooooo good! Very rich! I read that someone used heavy cream instead of half and half but I think that would have been over kill! I did it just like the recipe and it was wonderful! The only thing was I had to add some more flour and water to thicken it some more because it did't get as thick as I liked before adding the half and half. I served it with sourdough rolls. My family loved it and I will be making this again!

Clam Sauce with Linguine

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
I read a lot of the reviews on this and really liked what Andrea2289 did and followed her suggestions very closely. It was totally amazing! We had it with french bread that we dipped in the broth. So good! I noticed that a lot of people added cream or sour cream to this. I think they mistakenly thought this was supposed to be a cream sauce?? I added even more chicken stock and clam juice to have more broth for dipping. This is a keeper! A fairly inexpensive nice meal for a large family!

Easy Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
This is the best bananan bread recipe EVER! And I don't like bananas! I have made 9 loaves of this in the last 2 weeks! I have teens and they keep gobbling it up. I did do what someone suggested and used 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup brown. Was perfect! Also added toasted chopped pecans. I put brown sugar and cinnamon mixed in the bottom of the pan and then sprinkled more top also. Each batch made 3 loaves, I think my silicon loaf pans must be smaller. I only had to cook them for one hour. I only used 3 bananas and it was just the right amount of flavor, not too over the top banana-y. This stuff is just to die for!

Hot German Potato Salad III

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
This is an awesome recipe! I have made it twice now. I found that 3 pounds of potatoes and twice the sauce is perfect. "9 potatoes" is far too vague. We love bacon so I used a whole pound. I also added a splash more vinegar like some suggested. Very good!!

Cheesy Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
I made this according to the recipe the first time I made this, and then made some changes the next time. Definitely leave out the sugar!! I added salt and pepper, a good amount of dill weed, some pickle juice (yeah sounds weird, but good!) and some paprika. I used a pound of real bacon, crumbled. I took it to a party today and it was devoured! Everyone loved it! I think I may try adding some finely chopped red onion next time too!

Cottage Cheese Loaf II

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
I have rarely found a recipe on here this bad! It was edible but gluey and blah! Even tried topping it with salsa to help it. I wish it had tasted like it sounded. It was more like oatmeal. I googled Cottage Cheese Loaf and found some much better sounding dishes! Sorry!

Grandma's Five Cup Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
I have been making this recipe since I was first married 20 years ago! It is awesome just the way it is written. It's best if you make it a day ahead though. Make sure to drain the friut very well so there is no runny stuff in the bottom of the bowl.

Mock Chicken Fried Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
This is soooo good! I did make a couple of changes. I brushed the patties with egg and then pressed the cracker crumbs in. Like others, I had to keep cleaning out the skillet to get rid of burnt breading. Kept done ones on a rack on a cookie sheet in the oven at 300F while cooking the rest to keep warm. I used two eggs in the meat mixture. Did not need to be cooked 7 minutes... only until nicely browned. I made up a packet of Country Gravy and had mashed potatoes and corn. True comfort food! Will definately make again!

Spinach Manicotti

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2007
This is totally awesome! I made this for dinner tonight. I didn't make any changes. I did have leftover ricotta mixture, so I just spread it over the top before baking. I filled the manicotti shells with a pastry press. It was a two person job, but was easy that way. My family isn't really into meatless meals, but we didn't even notice there wasn't any! Definitely a make again thing!!! Yummy!

Chicken In a Tarragon Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2007
This is really good! I did what several others did and used boneless skinless chicken breast cut into strips. I simmered the sauce for 25 minutes but didn't put the chicken in until the last several minutes.The sauce reduced quite a bit. I added quite a bit more sour cream and even milk! I wanted more sauce to serve over rice. This is really really good!
