Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
I really liked this and my husband liked it as well. The kids - not so much! I am going to try again with real ginger and the Udon noodles. I can see where you can tweek this with chicken or shrimp or added veggies if you wanted. Great receipe and a great change of pace.

Chicken Parmigiana

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
I thought this turned out good, not fantastic, but good. I did take advice of others and made the chicken the way I make breaded pork chops. Flour, Eggs and then breading. I fry them on top of the stove until they are browned and then bake them in a pan with foil on top. Everyone always comments on how juicy and tender the meat is. This was good, I will just have to tweek the sauce and cheese mixture to make it more to my liking. My husband loved it, the kids were so so. So that is why the 4 star. Thanks

Mini Cheesecakes

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
These were super easy and great. I thinked I worried about it too much when making it. I did use Chocolate Graham crackers and crushed them in a processor as crust. I took half the cheescakes and swirled some melted Semi-Sweet morsels into them. Just straight chocolate melted in a microwave, I put a dollop on each and used a toothpick to swirl it in. I also probably could have put more into each cupcake liner, but this was my first time and I was playing it safe. I was very happy - made for Valentines and everyone loved it. I honestly do not know how you could go wrong. Also I make New york style cheesecake all the time, it takes 5 bricks of cream cheese and everyone is right you need to let the cream cheese get to room temp, but I have many times microwaved my cream cheese with no adverse effects. I am not saying cook it, but put it on a low setting and keep checking it - once it is getting smooth - I take it out and it always works fine, this is just good for those times when you forget to take it out early and are in a time crunch. I microwaved these because it was a last minute thing. Everyone else is right the skis the limit with what you can use as topping, I did a dollop of choclate, cherries and plain. I will start making these more oftern - so easy and quick.

Frank's® Red Hot® Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
I used to be asked to bring Spinach Dip to all get togethers - it got so old - this is my new dip. I have made it probably 10 times since finding it and have baked it, microwaved it, and used a crock pot. The dip is always gone. Everyone loves it. I personally like the crock pot for get togethers as it can stay warm. I have used canned chicken, boiled chicken and baked chicken. Finally decided the chicken needs to be soft and shredded. Canned seemed better every time, it blended better. But canned was more exspensive. So I cook the chicken breast in the crock pot all day the day before and it usually shredds and is softer, not mushy. It works better and gives the same texture as canned chicken. You can use can, but it costs alot more for all that chicken (especially when you are making a big batch for parties). You can not go wrong, this is so good.

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
I think this was very good. I made changes based on others reviews, so I only gave it 4 stars. Like others I added extra eggs, if not I can't imagine how thick it would be. I used real potatos (about 5 small to med) and peeled and grated them, used bacon and used a dozen eggs, was a big hit. It filled a 9 x 13 pan. I also made it the day before and took it out about a hour before cooking in the AM (saved alot of time). I am sure this is good with less eggs - how can you go wrong with all that cheese and bacon, but I wanted it to feed 6 of us. We had two pieces left, using a dozen eggs.

Chocolate Ganache

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
I have used this many times, so simple and so good. You can't go wrong with this, it is fool proof. It is great to use by itself on a cheesecake or add some Heath bar crunch or peppermint. I have to say when my cheesecakes crack ( and they do) this is my go to topping to make it look perfect! Thanks for a great recipe !

Double Chocolate Biscotti

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2009
I only gave this 4 stars, because they were just alright. I think it is my personal preference. I guess I just prefer Biscotti "not so sweet" They were good but for me not my favorite. I did everything like I should and I was in Biscotti mode, I made three separates receipes today, so I know what i am doing - yet these were very soft when it came to the second cooking and hard to flip you had to be extremely gentle when flipping them. They started crumbling. When they were finished in the second cooking, I just took the pans out and left them sitting on the counter for two hours, they seemed to have improved once they air dried.

Banana Cranberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
Well I was alittle hesitant about this seeing that I was making the Cranberry sauce first then adding it to the muffin batter. I honestly thought it would be to watery. But I made cranberry sauce and put it in a strainer (not a collander) for about 5 minutes then added it to the batter. They were fabulous. They were so moist (not soggy) and they tasted was much better then just adding cranberries ( I have done that before and they were alright) this was much more flavorful. Love the receipe and it is a keeper.

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
I have to say even those these dig fall apart alittle, they were great. My kids loved them. They are so moist and tender as well, a far cry from a burger. To keep falling aprat to a min. I don't turn them a whole lot, the less I mess with them the better. I thought this was a cost effective receipe as well. Thanks

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
This was so good!!! So easy - I can't believe how nice it turned out. The only thing I didn't do was the beer and that was because my husband drinks weird dark beers that really may change the taste. I used chicken broth instead. It was great I will use it again - maybe for company, it was that delicious! Thank you!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
It was very good, but my biscuits did not absorb all the liquid so it was alittle runny, but it was great. Iw ill try again and use more biscuits. It could be my crock pot, as it is larger, so maybe when putting water in to cover items, it was too much. I also used broth instead of water, so maybe that had something to do with it. But taste was very good.

Foolproof Rib Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
Well before I begin I want to say that the roast was good, but way too stressful. FIRST - everyone says "Do not open the oven" under no circumstances, BUT no one says what will happen if you do. The reviews, the receipes, nobody says what dreadful thing will befall you should you open the oven. I have cooked rib roasts before and never had a problem. I saw all the rave reviews, I even checked out Paula Deans site (someone mentioned it was there as well and it was) and thought this will be easy. There were hundreds of positive reviews. I have a three year old oven it works perfect. I bought a 4.75lb roast and followed all instructions to a tee. My husband and I both worked on this... Prepared, cooked it for a hour, turned it off after a hour, we had a meat themometer in place and 1.5 hr into the 3 hour window of "no opening" our meat was at 140 degrees (internal) So now I am freaking out as I have no idea what another 1.5 hrs will do let alone heating it up and cooking it again. So we took a chance and opened it to make sure our placement of the themometer was good, we then saw it was, and we decide to give it another hour and then we took it out of the oven (yes we opened and took it out) and heated the oven up and placed it back in and cooked it another 20 minutes. It was fine, tastes like a rib roast should, it was medium on outside and med rare inside. I can't see me doing this again and stressing out about ruining a $40.00 piece of meat. I know the majority of

Crescent Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
As eveyone mentions, I remember these from being a kid. They are my all time favorite. really don't know why I don't make them more often. I tried the powdered sugar and granular as suggested, they all turned out great. They don't last long.

Raspberry Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
This was good, but not as good as I had hoped. Maybe I did something wrong. I gave it 4 because we did eat it all, it is just that my other cheeseballs seemed more popular.

Molasses Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
These were great, I have been looking for something with this flavor for years. Someone made a Molasses Spice type cookie and gave them to our family as a gift a few years ago. They were so good. So glad I found this, so simple and a keeper.

Chicken and Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
My family liked this, and it was a nice change from beef chili. I did make some changes as others did. I personally boiled the chicken earlier to save time and used the broth from the chicken instead of water in the receipe. I also cut back on the amount of water used, it made it thicker and seem more like chili and not a soup. I just added my spices in when adding the chicken. We also like things alittle spicer and added what we need to spice it up. Overall very quick and everyone ate it. I did not have the garlic roasted tomato paste, just used regular tomato paste.

Anna's Amazing Easy Pleasy Meatballs over Buttered Noodles

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2008
I give this a five because it was super easy, quick and my family loved it. I did as others did and tweaked it alittle based on what I had at home. I used cream of mushroom soup, beef broth and sour cream and it did in fact taste alot like my stroganoff. Everyone liked it and it was very quick - that is great!
