Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2008
This is good low-calorie soup if you do it right. I omitted the butter, flour, rice, cream and pepper (hello, its hot already!) I instead used 2 tsp of olive oil for the butter. Instead of using flour, I used 1 cup of potatoes, diced fine (in place of rice), since it will thicken up a stew anyway. I added 1% fat milk instead of cream, and passed around light sour cream for everyone to dollop on top (which totally was delicious, don't leave it out!) I used a total of 200g of raw chicken as well. The calories for me turned out to be 58 per 100g (I weighed the whole thing after cooking and then calculated a 100g serving.) fat 1.2g, carbs 6g, and protein 5.8g. (These calcs do not include the sour cream on top.) I'll definitely make it again, husband gave it a 10/10! And I grated the carrots, since I'm not a fan of them in dice form.

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2008
This is 'the one'. It tastes like the ones you get at restaurants, but fresher, more decadent and sublimely rich. In my version that I'll be keeping in my recipe book I halved the half-and-half and used 1 1/2 cups of coconut milk instead, which brings out that coconut flavor for sure. I used flour instead of the 'suggestions' of using cornstarch with great results. I also made my own whipped topping (1 carton of whipping cream, 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar, and 1 teaspoon coconut extract.) Also made the very simple 'Graham Cracker Crust' submitted by Janaan Cunningham here on Allrecipes. Honestly the whole pie took about an hour to make, with very little effort. It will impress for sure! My tip for making the filling, think of Dory from 'Finding Nemo', just keep whisking, just keep whisking. It will be about 25 minutes, but you'll feel it start to thicken up. Once it comes to a boil on low heat (once the bubbles break through, and it will take a little bit) its done. It should be thick like thick pudding. Just keep whisking! I should add I used a regular pot to cook it in and after pouring into the crust, it sat in the fridge overnight before I put the topping on.

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
Pretty close to my grandmother's recipe. I add diced pieces of fresh cherries to mine instead of raisins. I also made the dough (being careful to not stir too much) the night before we ate it, covered and left in fridge.

Buttery Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
These rolls really are great. I had to scold my husband to not eat them twice, once before supper while they were cooling and during mealtime when the rolls were supposed to be an accompaniment, not the main dish. I put half of the recipe in an oiled bag into the fridge to have for supper today, if I don't write back, it turned out great. Am letting rest at room temp for an hour before I bake them off. These rolls are really worth the minimal time they take to make. Impressive. Oh, I will say in my toaster oven they took 11 minutes to brown nicely.

Garlic Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
The garlic didn't really do it for us. But the technique was great!

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: May 21, 2011
I used pre-cooked chicken, which I browned up with some celery and onion in a small pot, in some butter. Then I cooked some potatoes in the chicken broth (bouillon & water, really), diced bite size, for about 10 minutes. Made a roux with 1/3 cup flour and 1/4 cup butter. Used homogenized milk instead of cream. Didn't use the rice. Added couple cloves of minced garlic. Chopped and added some cooked bacon. And we dunked bread in it too. Next time I may cut back on adding the 2 cups of water, because it may have been not thick enough (with the roux amount I made).

Easy Swedish Apple Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
It tastes better when cold. It must be refrigerated because of the egg though so be careful. Wasn't as good as my apple crumble so I don't think I'll make it again.

Stef's Super Cheesy Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2012
This was very good. Definitely our go to garlic bread recipe. I do omit the onions though. And watch this in the oven, it it overflows onto the bottom it will smoke like crazy. Trust me. ;)

Blueberry Breakfast Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
I halved the recipe and it was great for 2 smalls and 2 adults. I mixed the sugar and cornstarch together and added the water and then added the blueberries and set it to low heat while I made the pancakes. When it was go time I turned it up slightly to get it to boil and be ready. I did stir every once in a while while cooking the pancakes and then consistently while it boiled.

Breaded Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
I didn't make this as written. I needed more spice to my basic panko coated chicken, so I used the coating and baked them dotted with some butter. It needed more butter than I used because the chicken fingers came out with dry flour spots. While I would use the spices in this recipe again, perhaps doubled, I would not use flour in my breading.

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
The ham was moist, but I don't think the flavor was imparted very much. The flavor was nice, but it didn't absorb into the ham that we could taste. Otherwise it tastes fine, and I'm not sure its the recipes fault, maybe I'm just meant to drizzle the liquid over the meat when we are eating for the flavor, which we did after I thickened it. Not a bad recipe, just not something you think about and crave.

Daddy's 'If They'da had This at the Alamo we would'ha WON!' Texas Chili

My husband liked this. I felt it needed more tomato taste, but I may just use crushed tomatoes next time.

Blueberry Gingerbread

Reviewed: May 11, 2012
You gotta put ice cream on top. I didn't add molasses to the recipe and it turned out fine. Very yum. Today I am substituting the molasses for maple syrup and making these into muffins.

Herbed Greek Roasted Potatoes with Feta Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
I was running shy on time and wasn't able to bake these for as long as the recipe says. I did enjoy the tang of lemon these had, which was surprising because I don't like lemon in foods. My potatoes were still soggy at 60 minutes of cooking, but I may try again, making sure they are all single file and not bunched up in the pan.

Sour Cream Cheesy Potatoes

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
Husband liked it, but the kids and I didn't really enjoy it much. The sour cream taste came through too much. I also had to cook it longer than 50 minutes as the potatoes weren't soft enough.

Oven-Fried Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
I didn't have bread crumbs, so I used Stove Top stuffing that I crushed up. I also cooked them in my toaster oven. They were very juicy, and the 10 minutes per side was perfect for the thick chops I had to register them fully cooked inside (meat thermometer always!)

Pasta with Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
I made this when mother was visiting. I thought it was fine, although I needed to substitute the pasta sauce with tomatoes. It was okay, but not flavorful or deep enough for regular rotation cooking. I wouldn't make it again. I added meatballs and back bacon to the sauce, and used 1% milk in place of the cream.

Chicken Alfredo Pizza

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
I made this with Parmesan instead of Romano, and didn't spice the chicken. I need to make again, because its mostly right, and probably will be awesome made with the right stuff. The sauce needed something and overall the chicken needed that flavor to get it there.
