Quinoa with Veggies

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
both my husband and i love the flavors of this dish. as the recipe states, you can use almost any vegetable that you have on hand. i used garlic, red onion, fresh corn cut from the cob, red bell pepper and celery. i also used red quinoa which, i think, takes more time to cook than white quinoa. awesome recipe!

Easy Steam Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
i agree with other comments about the chicken being too salty. i tried brining it with an equal amount of sugar and immersed it in cold water, but it still came out salty for my taste. my husband, who loves his salt, loved it though so i am giving this four stars. this might be good with a little ginger too.

Rotelle Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2007
i've had pasta salads before and never really cared for them because i found them too oily and sour for my taste. i was tempted to make this recipe because it had vegetables in it which i found interesting. this recipe turned out to be really good. i used skinless chicken breast instead of turkey. i also used grated parmesan cheese instead of cheddar. i thought about making my own italian dressing but decided to use paul newman's family recipe instead. i also used hormel's real bacon instead of making my own bacon bits.

Mushroom Sauce Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
made this last night for dinner and everyone in my family loved it - especially the gravy, onion and potato part. i did add creole seasoning to the pork chops just to give it a little zing. i bet this would be good with chicken as well.

yummy! i followed the recipe as it is and it turned out great. because it is so rich, i only make this around christmas time in place of the more traditional fruit cake.

Brunswick Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2003
This was very good. I substituted salt pork with virginia bacon and the lima beans with blackeye peas. I omitted the corn, and added diced green bell pepper and beans. Definitely a keeper!

Classic Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
I am not sure what happened to my dough but it turned out very sticky and I added more flour than what was called for. Despite that, the dough came out pretty awesome! So soft and not at all sweet so the dough can actually be used to make regular dinner rolls.

Three Hundred Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
i scaled down this recipe to serve 18 and roughly came up with 2 dozen cookies of good size. this is a good recipe to do when you are baking for a lot of people.

Aunt Betty's French Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2005
i love making my own dressings and this one will be one of my favorites. i used white wine vinegar like the recipe called for, and it was just fine - not vinegary at all.

Asian Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2002
I prefer to do this dish with a tad more brown sugar. I wondered about the olive oil and sesame oil and thought it an odd mix, but the flavors really blended well in this dish. I always loved the combination of soy sauce and garlic, anyway.

Marinated Rosemary Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2003
Despite marinating the chicken for over 24 hours, the flavors just didn't get into the chicken. The aroma was good though. Will not make again.

Pumpkin Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
One of the reviews I read said that they added more than 2 tsp. pumpkin spice and it was perfect. Taking that as a guide, I added about 1 tsp more pumpkin spice but it still was too bland for my taste. My husband thought it was ok but "not worth getting fat on". I don't think I will be making this again.

Chicken Adobo II

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
used 4 cloves crushed garlic. used half the vinegar called for and cooked chicken for about 35 minutes covered. cooked an additional 15-20 minutes or so uncovered to thicken the sauce a little bit.

Soft, Moist and Gooey Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
i was looking for a good cinnamon bun recipe and i think i found the best - husband said it was the best thing i ever baked! i only had banana pudding mix on hand and like some, put the entire box in. i was a little worried about the banana flavor, but it turned out fine - you won't even know it was in it. i did omit the raisins and used pecans instead of walnuts. i also took heed of others and doubled the brown sugar cinnamon mix. i thought it would be sweet enough without the frosting so i omitted it completely. definitely will be one of my favorite things to bake.
