Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
Very good recipe that works well in a crockpot! Add the 2 frozen chicken breasts, a box of Rice-a-Roni Long Gain and Wild Rice with seasoning packet, 4 cups chicken broth (or 3 cans), 2 cups water. 1 cup chopped celery, and 1 cup chopped carrots in a large crockpot. Cook on high for 4 hours or 6 hours on low. Make rue like original recipe suggests (except I used 2 cups whole milk) and add to crockpot. Cook 15 min. more on low.

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2012
Great recipe for macaroni salad! I used 1/3 of a red, yellow, and orange bell pepper instead of a whole green bell pepper for color. I decreased the mustard to 1 tsp. because I'm not a fan of mustard (this made the salad sweet and tangy kind of like a coleslaw). As others have said, this was even better the next day! I had to fight my husband for the last of it!

Garlic Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2012
This recipe was very easy! I did add a little seasoning salt to the recipe, but other than that everything was fantastic! I even made my little 4 year old some "chicken bites" and she loved them!

Lela's Fourth of July Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2012
Had this for the 4th at a bbq...it was excellent!!! The recipe does make a lot so if you are planning for a smaller crowd, use the alterations in the footnotes. You can easily make this the day before to save some time :)

Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2012
This was super easy and tasted great! Just add a little provalone and marinara on top and it's even better! I also baked the chicken for 35-40 min instead of frying it. Turned out delish!

Jenny's Black Forest Cake for High Altitude

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
After 4 attempts, I finally got the levening agents adjusted just right for high altitude! This cake tastes better after the cherry filling has had time to soak into the cake layers. My next mission is to try baking this cake in smaller pans and then try making cupcakes.

Broccoli Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
This was a good recipe for broccoli rice casserole, but think it needed some more cheese. Next time I think I'll try adding 8 oz more of Velveeta and see how it tastes.

Ground Beef Lo Mein

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
I tweaked this recipe just a little to fit what I had on hand: Instead of jar gravy, I used powdered turkey gravy and mixed it in (with the water required on the gravy package) after the ground beef had finished browning. In addition to the garlic powder, I added 2 TBS of soy sauce, a few shakes of Worcestershire sauce, a couple shakes of red pepper flakes, and a few shakes of onion powder. After, I mixed in some microwavable frozen veggies and the cooked spaghetti noodles. It turned out very well!!! My husband thought it was awesome and my 3 year old ate all her vegetables (she did say it was a little spicy, though…lol). It was a VERY simple and quick dinner. I will be serving this again!

Jenny's Black Forest Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2011
This cake tasted fabulous! One of the best tasting black forest cake recipes! Note: the coffee needs to be a dark roast and strong to taste it in the cake; used dark chocolate AND regular unsweetened cocoa powder (1/2 cup of the dark and 1/4 cup of the regular cocoa powder). Also, I live at a high altitude and had trouble with the center of the cakes falling and baking time was about 10 minutes longer. Need suggestions about baking cakes from scratch at high altitudes.
