Burger or Hot Dog Buns

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2013
What I love about this recipe is that it can be made in an hour. The first time I made the dough, I used a Danish Dough Whisk. It took minimal effort to knead the dough into a smooth ball. The second time, I use my Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer, and the dough kneaded in about 7 minutes. My tip is: turn your oven onto WARM for 2-3 minutes, then turn it off (while the dough is kneading). This creates a proofing oven, where my rolls proofed beautifully in 25 minutes. I like to brush an egg wash and sprinkle with either sesame or poppy seeds. Definitely a keeper recipe!

Almond Shortbread I

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
These cookie are outstanding. After carefully reading the reviews, I solved the whole dilemna about too much flour-- I used my Kitchen Aid Standmixer. At first, the dough was very crumbly, but I let the beaters do the work and then it all came together! I uploaded a photo of how I made these-- they are very delicious and a keeper. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I would not change a single thing...I photographed how I made these on my food blog.

Cowboy Cookie Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
I forgot to rate this recipe when I made it last year. It was fun, pretty and everyone loved it! I used some gingham material to decorate the jar. They are delicious, too.

New England Clam Chowder II

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2005
This was very easy and quick to make, and really delicious! I didnt' drain the clams, though (no instructions to do so) so the soup got a little thin, and I had to thicken it. Next time, I'll drain them. I did add some of the crumbled bacon back to the soup, and it was very good. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

Holiday Peppermint Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2004
This is one of the quickest Christmas treats I've made! I made one batch with Eagle Brand Candy Coating and one batch with Toll House Vanilla Chips-- The Eagle Brand was the easiest to melt, and was like velvet to spread on a baking sheet. The toll-house morsels got really dry in the microwave melting process and was harder to work with. I added a tablespoon of peppermint extract, and I'm glad that I did. It tastes great! Personally, the Eagle Brand chocolate looks the prettiest, and tastes the best. I'm going to melt some milk chocolate chips and drizzled it over the bark-- This will make great Christmas gifts. By the way, my cuisinart worked great for breaking up the peppermint! Much faster-- I realized this after the plastic bag started to break up with my hammering. Why work so hard?

Awesome Honey Pecan Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2004
To DIE for, and so fast and quick! I turned the heat up on high, once I added the honey and pecans to the drippings...and I added just shy of 1/2 cup chicken stock. The sauce thickened up, and I ate every bite with relish. A definite quick and delicious dinner. Thanks!

Pork Chop Packs

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2004
This recipe was fast to prepare and it was delicious. I used thick cut pork loin, so my meat wouldn't overcook. I used a sliced bermuda onion, and sprinkled cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice on top of the apple slices. I used half of a sweet potato, dotted with butter, and baked for 45 minutes. The sweet potatoe just barely cooked right (not to self: don't use too large of a potato next time) I then took a pat of softened butter, added some brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice and mixed together. This was added to the sweet potato for those with a sweeter tooth. Delicious and I would definitely make again... don't use thin pork chops, as they will turn out dry. Easy cleanup and inexpensive to make.

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2004
After reading a lot of the reviews, I decided to use a jar of spaghetti sauce for a better tasting sauce. I also added two eggs to the cottage cheese and parmesan cheese (got this from my spaghetti pie recipe idea). I added 1/2 cup of red cooking wine for more moisture. It tasted fine, but nothing spectacular. I remembered to make the last layer to be the meat topping, so the noodles did end up cooking thoroughly (I used extra wide egg noodles). They had a bit of a mushy consistency, which I wasn't wild about. Overall, my teenager liked it and I might make it again.

Quick Chicken Cordon Bleu

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2003
My teenage son is a picky eater...he loves to eat, but if it doesn't come in a wrapper with fries, he's hard to get to try new things. This recipe was a real hit! As for me, it literally took me 15 minutes to prep and within 30 minutes it was on the table. I did roll a slice of swiss cheese with the ham, and I also added about an extra 1/4 up swiss cheese when I made the sauce. The sauce was really delicious, especially with the white wine. My son asked me to make it again. A definitely "keeper".

Creamed Spinach II

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2003
This really was a quick and easy recipe for creamed spinach. Next time, though, I may add cooked bacon and onions for more "punch" to the flavor.

Awesome Roast Beef

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2002
This really was a tasty and quick recipe. While I use my crockpot, I have become a pressure cooker afficionado. I was able to make this recipe in thirty minutes, using my Cook's Essentials Programmable Pressure Cooker. I used a 3 lb. cross rib roast. I did use low-sodium beef broth and 2 cans cream of mushroom soup. After browning the meat quickly, I used unpeeled red potatoes (more nutritious) and I used a garlic clove as well. I poured the combine soups plus 1/2 pack of onion soup mix and cooked the meat on HIGH pressure for 30 minutes. The gravy was more than plentiful and very tasty. An easy meal to enjoy. If you have never tried a pressure cooker, they are easy to use and aren't the kind that "explodes" like in the old I Love Lucy episodes... frankly, it's easier than a crockpot and much faster. Definitely a "keeper" recipe.

Bean with Bacon

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2002
My family really liked this soup! Very heart, good flavor. I loved to use my pressure cooker, so I cooked the beans for 8 minutes, and let sit for 20 minutes and then drained them. I used 4 cans of chicken broth and I cup of water. I used all the ingredients as listed and followed the directions, except for substituting the chicken brother for the 9 cups of water. I cooked the soup at high pressure for 20 minutes. It was quick and delicious. This recipe is a keeper.
