Irish Boxty

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
Mine came out fairly more like doughy pancakes than the crunchy hashbrown texture I was expecting. I think making these is very much like making pancakes - if you are good at making pancakes (I'm not) then you will have more success with these than I did.

Spaghetti Squash Saute

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
I omitted the garlic due to a slight allergy in my family. The onions with the butter tasted good but I lost the sweetness of the squash in this flavor combination. I think next time I would add some parmesan cheese.

Cola Easter Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2010
We thought this was ok. I felt like I could taste the odd flavors of the grape juice and coke. It really didn't do anything in terms of tenderizing my Cumberland Gap boneless ham, in fact the skin became a tough chewy rind. Would bake another boneless hame but not necessarily this combo. I did like the idea of serving a sauce alongside ham though.

Factory Workers Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
I have had almost this same recipe only when I had it the "marinade" mixture of 1 part dressing and 1 part salsa was used as a sauce over basic grilled chicken and grilled ribeye steaks; when I made it I eyeballed my amounts of each in equal parts and simmered multicolored pepper strips over low/med heat in a sauce pan until the peppers were tender then I served it as a warm sauce for our grilled meats. It was a big hit and we probably benefited from the flavors of the combination as a sauce rather than a marinade.

Peppermint Punch

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2007
Sorry this wasn't a big hit at our christmas party. I used the best quality ingredients-- Homemade brand peppermint stick ice cream with Canada Dry and whole milk--this just tasted like the medicine. Love the ice cream--not the punch.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
This made very attractive classically "cracked" snickerdoodles but were not chewy and turned out too cake-like in the middle of the cookie for my taste. I took the advice of other reviewers and creamed the butter and sugar by hand. It probably made a difference in the appearance (didn't flatten out during baking) but may have kept them from being chewy since the electric mixer would have probably creamed the mixture better than I did. Next time I would go ahead and use the mixer just to cream the butter and sugar and let the dough rest overnight.

Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
This is a great tasting cookie! When cooled they were crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I only omitted the espresso powder (didn't have any)and added 3/4 cup of chopped pecans and was still very happy with the results. Of all the chocolate chip cookie recipes I've tried these came out the most attractive. With other recipes (Tollhouse for ex.) I've baked, my cookies always spread out flat on the cookie sheet probably due to flawed proportions of the basic ingredients (flour, butter, sugars). Also I followed the advice of another reviewer and turned down my oven. I baked these at 325 degrees.

Hearty Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
We liked this recipe a lot. I would probably make this again. It was like a cross between a rich potato soup and a corn chowder. Even my husband liked it though he isn't a "corn fan". One thing I'd do differently is cut the sausage link into smaller, more bite size pieces. I wasn't sure if the recipe called for the big kielbasa type link or the lil' smokies. I sliced 1/2 of a large beef smoked sausage link and wished I cut my 1/4 inch slices into halves. There are so many many nice ingredients in this chowder I wanted to get a bit of each on the soup spoon but the round slices of sausage were too large.

Chuckwagon Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2006
We thought this was pretty good. Very high protein with all the meat and beans and especially easy to make too. I do wish I'd made a vegetable side to go with it though. Just the stew with corn muffins seemed like too much meat. I would make this again.

Stuffed Shells IV

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2006
We really liked this. I made 1/2 a recipe with turkey and thought it was great. A week later I substitued beef but didn't like it as well. I think the turkey is better with the spinach flavors.

Easy and Delicious Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2006
I thought this was pretty good for how easy it is... One thing I did was mix up my sauce in the morning when I put the chicken in the slow cooker. I zapped the cream cheese in the microwave for a few seconds just to soften it and used a mixer to blend the canned soup, cream cheese, broth, & seasonings because I quickly realized it would be lumpy if I didn't. Then all I had to do to finish it that evening was drain the chicken, shred it and return it to the slow cooker with my pre-mixed sauce. I used sundried tomato italian style dressing and thought this was good enough to make again.

Warm Crab Dip II

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2005
This was really good and rich. I did add a little mozzarella cheese about 1/4 cup to it though. And I sprinkled a little grated parmesan cheese on top. Really good recipe though I suspect the quality of crab meat you use makes all the difference. I used Kroger's "private selections" lump crab meat and was pleased with the quality for about 5 bucks for a 6 oz. can. Served alongside Tostitos restaurant style tortilla chips.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2005
I liked this a lot and it was really easy. I used italian sausage instead of hamburger and Paul Newman's Sockarooni jar sauce. I also added some sauteed mushrooms and it turned out terrific. This was a really attractive dish as well.One note: I halved this recipe using just 1 jar of sauce and 1/2 the ziti called for and just 2 crumbled italian links and it filled a 13x9 casserole dish. If I made the whole recipe I would probably use a bigger pan. Will probably serve at my next Christmas party!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2004
This was moist and delicious. I wasn't crazy about the appearance though. (My purplish sliced bananas sank to the bottom) Still it was very good.

Hot Artichoke Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2003
I was disappointed in this dip. It was ok but not as creamy as I expected it to be. It came out too dry/thick for the suggested accompanying tortilla chips, had to tear up a round loaf of gourmet bread to go with it. At the cost of ingredients, I would not make this again.

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2003
These were sooo cute. Everybody raved about them at our Christmas party. I molded my cheese ball into the shape of an igloo and stood the penguins around it on a festive tray. I knew from the reviews I'd read that most guests would not actually eat them so I only made 8 because they are difficult to make and I used whipped cream cheese as someone suggested.

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2003
These were delicious. I have been searching for a sour cream sauce... using the mushroom soup as a base was perfect. I did alter to taste the following: omitted garlic(my husband is allergic), sub. drained 10 oz can Rotel tomatoes (split the can- 1/2 went into sauce to cover and 1/2 into chicken filling) for green chiles, covered with mozzarella I had on hand and used 12 6 inch corn tortillas instead of flour. ( I've used flour tortillas in heavily sauced oven baked dishes before and they were gummy and chewy in my experience.) Tomatoes did make sauce a little pink! But still great.

Pecan Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2002
This pie is good, not overly sweet but I think 55 minutes is too long to cook it. Mine came out a bit too chewy and I cooked it for 50 mins. I thought the filling would be more uniform, less clumpy. Good flavor, though I could definately taste the stronger dark corn syrup flavor.
