Cranberry Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2006
WOW! What a wonderful cookie. I just made these last night for a cookie tray and they were the best of all five varities I tried. I did make a few changes to the recipe: *I added 1 1/2 tsp of zest like some of the other reviews suggested. *I used fresh cranberries and sliced them in half (not chopped). I thought they were the perfect size when the cookies baked. *Some of the other reviews suggested adding vanilla extract, but I think that almond extract and cranberries are made for eachother, so... I added about 1/4-1/2 tsp. almond extract. *Instead of walnuts, I added almond gems to accompany the extract. The gems are small enough so they don't stand out too much -- perfect for nut lovers and perfect for the rest of us! *I decided to try the cookies w/o the frosting first because of some reviews stating that the cookies were too sweet. I thought the cookies were perfect w/o the frosting, so why hassel?!! *Also, if I left them in the oven one second longer than 12 minutes, they were overcooked.

Simple But Awesome Lemon Pepper Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2006
Easy and simple recipe! Make sure to put the wrapped chops in a baking dish to catch the leaking oil. I halved the oil and butter--next time I will 1/4 the amount. You just don't need nearly as much as the recipe calls for. Flavor was good...I used soy instead of worchestershire like some of the other reviews suggested. I also baked at 350, but I found they needed 45 min at this temp not 35 min. I think the lower temp helps keep the chops tender. I will use this recipe again next time I'm in a rush and need something simple.

Eggnog Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2006
I made these last night for a cookie tray. They smelled wonderful as they were baking. I doubled the nutmeg to give them a little more flavor. As is, I would give the recipe 3 stars, but I added a eggnog frosting to help them taste like eggnog (not just a sugar cookie) which bumped them up to 4 stars. Eggnog Frosting: 1/2 cup butter (beat until fluffly), beat with 3 c. powdered sugar, add 1/2 tsp. brandy extract and 4 TBSP. eggnog, beat an additional 2 min. *I added a few drops of yellow food coloring to the frosting to give it the look of eggnog. Overall, the cookie was good, but don't expect amazing.

Oranged Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2004
Wonderful recipe!!! I made this for Thanksgiving and received many many compliments. I'm not a fan of cranberry sauce...but I loved this. It is also easy to make! If your looking for a good cranberry sauce you have to try this. I mixed the leftover with mayo and used it on turkey sandwiches! Yummy!

Chicken and Pasta Casserole with Mixed Vegetables

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2006
My husband really enjoyed this dish...I thought it was okay. I had to make a few substitutions based on the ingredients I had at the time: I used bowtie pasta, I used only cream of chicken soup, and I added some milk like some of the other reviews suggested. It had alot of flavor and was not dry at all. I'm just not sure that I would ever make it again.

Tofu Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2004
I loved this recipe! My husband also loved it (and he's not a fan of tofu.) I did double the sauce like some of the other reviews suggested. I highly recommend this recipe.

Thin Mint Crackers

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2006
WOW! I was very cautious about getting my hope up for "GIRL SCOUT-LIKE" Thin Mints, but it's true -- these are just as good! And, they're made out of crackers. Based on other reviews, I made a few changes: I used a pound of milk chocolate almond bark. Heated it in the micro and was ready to go in about 1 min. Very easy. I tossed the cracker in the chocolate, flipped with a fork, and then lifted out with a fork, and slid it onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. The chocolate is thick enough so the fork doesn't leave any marks. Once the cookie sheet was full, I put it in the freezer to set. Only took a few minutes until they were ready to be stored. The bottoms came out perfect. Also, there was only enough chocolate for 64 crackers.

Bacon Quiche Tarts

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2007
I love these with a few modifications I got from other reviews. I added mushroom, used 1/2 a Grands biscuit, cooked @ 350 NOT 375. I put the bacon in the bottom, then topped with the filling. I love this recipe because you can customize the fillings to your own taste. Reheats well.

Cranberry-Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2006
Decent cake-like cookies, but they need a little more flavor. The pumpkin was not strong enough (my husband didn't even know they were pumpkin until I told him)! They also need more sugar. I think it would be wise to put some sort of frosting on the top like I noticed on the photo. Maybe I'll try it again with a few modifications.

Ribbon Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2006
Yummy! This light version tastes better than any other pumpkin bread I've ever had! I did up the spices a bit--I used about a tsp. of each of the spices called for, and then I added some nutmeg. The cream cheese filling didn't turn out too well. I didn't have enough leftover batter to cover the filling once I had already poured it into the pans. So...be careful to leave yourself enough batter to top with. Next time I think I'll just make the bread and leave the cream cheese filling out. I didn't think it was that great and it would cut back on calories! Also, it BARELY makes enough for 2 loaves.

Niether my husband or I were big fans of this recipe. The meatloaf was bland. The sauce was good, but the two just didn't taste right together.
