Real Italian Calzones

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2004
This was my first time making calzones, and also my first time making any kind of yeast bread. These were really good! I had a bit of trouble with the dough being too sticky, so I added 1/4 c. of flour. It was still really sticking to my floured hands and working surface. I decided I'd liberally oil my hands and surface - that made working with the dough MUCH easier. I like the fact that you can really play around with the fillings. I used about 2 c. Mozarella instead of the Cheddar, and mixed with the ricotta, basil, and some chopped pepperoni and mushrooms. Also, instead of making two huge calzones (and they really would have been enormous), I was able to make 7 individual ones. I took another reviewers suggestion and paired these with the Exquisite Pizza Sauce from this website. We topped our calzones with the sauce, and ate up! My only complaint besides the sticky dough was the time involded in preparing these. I work fulltime and have a 1-1/2 year old and a 3 year old, so I normally don't pick a recipe for dinner that takes more than about an hour from beginning to end. However, we all really did enjoy these, so I'd probably make them again on a weekend, when things aren't so hectic!! Thanks for the delicious recipe Jenny!

Turkey Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2003
I was looking for a way to use the last of my Christmas turkey leftovers, and boy, did I hit the jackpot. This was fantastic! I've never made a pot pie before. It took a little while, but was well worth it. I did use some other reviewers suggestions. I added some frozen peas while the potatoes were cooking, and added a can of cream of chicken soup (and about 1/2 can water) to make it more saucy. I also used cut up baby carrots instead of fresh ones. After cutting up my turkey, I realized I had about twice the amount the recipe called for, but I threw it all in anyway! The flavor was wonderful; after putting the pie in the oven, I did had enough filling left in the pan to make another one, but my husband ate ALL of it while the pie was baking! He's a picky eater, and we weren't sure he'd like this, but he gave it 2 thumbs up while his mouth was full. I will definitely try this again soon using chicken. This is a great recipe! Thanks!

Chicken Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2002
I thought this was wonderful!!! I've never made pepper steak, much less chicken pepper steak, but it was fantastic. I took the suggestion of others and only used 1 cup of water, and it made plenty of gravy (which tasted great on my garlic mashed potatoes). I also simmered it for about 30 minutes, which made the chicken very tender. This will definitely be a keeper in my kitchen. Thanks for the great recipe!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2002
I just baked these this morning before coming to work, and they are DELICIOUS!!! The only alterations I made was that I added about 1 tsp. cinnamon to the muffin batter, and I also took the suggestion of others and used 1/3 c. oil instead of the butter. The recipe made 12 BIG muffins, I baked them exactly 20 minutes, and they came out perfect. The muffins are moist and not too sweet. The crumb topping worked great and adds the perfect touch. Thanks for a great recipe Lisa, I'll definitely be making these again.
