Dorsey's Cream of Crab Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2001
I must have done something wrong because when I added the flour into the sauteed onions, there was no liquid left. I continued making it, but later, I added a lot of cornstarch and water to thicken up the soup. It turned into a thick chowder that was really very good. It took constant stirring while I was adding the thickeners, so that took a lot of time. Since I don't know what "chicken base" is, I added 3-4 cubes of chicken bouillion. I figured it was close enough. It really turned out tasty. It was my very first "seafood" dish and my family and friends gave it a "10"!!

Chicken and Rice Soup II

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2001
This recipe was very easy, however, I thought it was a bit bland. I had placed the leftovers into "lunch ready" containers, but by the next day the rice had soaked up the rest of the liquid. It was more like "chicken flavored rice and vegetables." Of all the leftovers in the fridge...it is still waiting to be chosen. :(

Florentine Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2001
It was wonderful. I actually wrung out the spinach (like a rag) and then pressed it between paper towels. I added shredded mozzarella on top when I removed the cover that way it would brown while cooking the last 10 minutes. Yummy! I froze half for my next party.

Grandma's Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2001
The hardest part was opening the cans! I wanted to fill the pot with chili, so I added extra cans of kidney beans and white beans. Also, I couldn't find "Black Bean Soup" in the grocery store, so I just put regular black beans with the juice in it. It turned out wonderfully. Even my brother who "only likes chili with meat in it" thought it was great.

Broccoli and Carrot Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2001
It took a little over an hour to make. I used a full box of noodles (16 oz), extra carrots, extra broccoli and a box of chopped spinach (10 oz). I overlapped the noodles more, and placed some on the top layer. Then I covered that with some extra cottage cheese and parmesan, then added the left over mozzerella, . The spinach added extra vitamins and a little zing! I accidentally added regular Rosemary (not crushed) but it still turned out flavorful. My 2 year old loved it! (except the carrots of course.)

Army SOS Creamed Ground Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2001
After browning the beef, I drained the excess fat off then I added an extra beef boullion cube for extra flavor. Instead of toast, I poured it over "dirty potatoes". (mashed potatoes made with the peels left on!) It tasted just like I remember in school. My 8 year old loved it!

Banana Bread IV

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2000
Yummy! I had an extra banana and threw it in, didn't seem to make a difference. Actually seemed extra moist. Instead of making loaves, I put them in cupcake papers and baked for 30-35 minutes. (I also added chocolate chips on top after I filled the papers. They were a HIT!)

Absolutely the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2000
I have been looking for a chocolate chip cookie recipe using Butter Flavored Shortening for a long time. I had the recipe when I was a kid, but lost it over the years. They are as good as I remember!! I accidentally overbaked one batch, but the insides were still soft and chewy! I didn't know what Mexican vanilla was, so I used vanilla flavoring, and they turned out great. I used only the mixer bowl to make them by creaming the sugars with the shortening, then adding the eggs, then the vanilla, then the salt, and finally the baking soda. I beat that on high until it was really fluffy. Then I added the flour and chips. I found that I needed to add anywhere from 1/2 to 1 cup extra flour to make the dough less sticky. The second time I made them, I left out 1/4 teaspooon salt (to be more healthy). They tasted just the same. Instead of baking them all at once, I made cookie balls and placed 12 in each plastic baggy and froze them. When I "need" some cookies I take out a frozen bag, preheat the oven, pop them on a cookie sheet, and bake. I have fresh cookies with in 20 minutes!! (I also gave them as gifts to the neighbors, still in their frozen baggies so they can enjoy the fresh baking aroma.) They loved them! Good luck!
