This turned out moist and the flavor was quite good. No more expensive store bought bird for us. Thanks for sharing.

Candy Apple Jelly

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
I mistakenly added the whole bag of red hots to the recipe, but happy accident. It was delicious and we also made a pork sauce glaze out of the jelly that was very good.

Tangy Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
This is a different and delicious sauce. I'm always looking for something with a twist of flavor. I too added a half cup more sugar to taste. Thanks for the recipe.

Golden Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
This is a hearty soup and good tasting. I also thinned it down with double amounts of water. We like soup alittle thinner. For a different flavor try removing the seeds and membranes of two jalapenos - chopping them to add with veggies while cooking. Thanks for the recipe!

Maple Glazed Chicken with Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
This recipe has some good things going on. The sauce with the maple syrup and onion was really good. However we felt the sweet potatoes with the sauce was a little flat. So I mixed some mashed butter and brown sugar in the potatoes to fix them. Ofcourse then you have something like candied sweet potatoes. Oh well that made them good for us anyway. Thanks for the recipe.

Jennifer's Thai Curried Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
I made this soup using the peanut butter sparingly because of a review. For our tastes I'm glad I did. Even cutting it by half was too strong for us. So next time I will add the peanut butter by tablespoonfuls at a time, tasting after each addition. Otherwise, it is a good full flavored soup. A little goes a long way and is good with toasted buttered bread points. I feel it's more for a Thai starter dish before the actual main meal because of the richness. The soup takes on a much better flavor after sitting for a few hours. Makes all the difference. Update: After making this a few times now, I only use 1/2 can coconut milk. (We just like the flavor better.) Another update: I've noticed some brands of peanut butter are milder than others, thus taking more.

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
Scaled down the recipe in half. I don't like chocolate flavor so heavy so I cut cocoa in half. A pinch of salt brings out the yum factor. I beat the frosting in my heavy stand mixer for about 3 or 4 minutes to make very creamy. With these changes this is my family's favorite chocolate frosting. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Lasagna Alfredo Roll Ups

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
This recipe handled very well. I loved how the roll-ups looked in the pan. I cooked some red bell pepper to throw in the sauce and this gave it another flavor boost. However, it would be good just as written. Next time I too will add some chicken chunks browned in butter. Nice company dish.

Fish Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
This recipe was thorough in timing if you follow the amounts given. I used fresh trout which was very good. Also used 1 teas fish sauce and a cup of water for clam juice. Can use creole seasoning for old bay if need be in a pinch. This was a favorite dish of my husbands. I left out the mushrooms didn't have any.

Bob's Slow Cooker Braciole

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
Having made other Bracioles, this recipe won't let you down. I didn't have bacon but it was still wonderful.

Traditional White Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2012
I've made many loaves of bread in my day. I wanted a recipe for something lighter and softer, this is it. Very very good! I have some tips: (1.) I warm my oven (not hot though - check it in a minute or two) to make a proofing box for rising. Then I turn it off and put in covered dough letting it double as directed each time. (2.) Use an electric knife to get good clean cuts for slicing. You can really cut thinner, even slices this way (if desired) helps when you want to eat healthier or for presentations sake. You will need to apply a little pressure to start cutting because the loaf is so soft. (3.) Lastly when bread is cooked and just slightly warm, I wrap in plastic helps to keep a softer crust. Personal preferences: I'm adding another tb. of sugar next time. Also I'm cutting the salt to 2 tsps as well.

Cheesy Onion Focaccia

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
I use this wonderful recipe for both focaccia and pizza crust. For a different take: Roll out 1/2 of the dough as thin as possible on a floured surface and cut with a 3 inch round biscuit cutter. Repeat. Add some of your favorite goodies. The two roll-out method just makes easier handling (for me anyway). By doing this the little crusts really brown beautifully and looks excellent to serve. I alway spray with non-stick pan coating.

Slow Cooker Adobo Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
This recipe is a very flavorful dish and easy to prepare. I wouldn't say it was my absolute favorite of all but it's a tasty and different change for dinner. I will make it again every now and then. I used apple cider vinegar.

Potato Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
I made this recipe the regular way of making bread with two rises instead of the refrigerator method. I needed them quicker. The rolls were soft and well liked. The kiddos said they were perfecto!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
I've never liked Sloppy Joes in the past. But this was good, and oh so easy. I'm still not extremely big on eating them but when I want one I will make this only.

Chewy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2012
These were chewy as the recipe states, but sorry not our favorite. Thanks anyway for the recipe. As you see many reviewers like them ... others not so much. So maybe you will.

Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
This soup is a tad bland but after adding 1 teas. curry powder that did the trick. I would suggest you add curry 1/4 teas at a time until you get it to your liking. Also I used 1 cup evaporated milk instead of whipping cream didn't have any. Next time I will saute 1/2 cup celery with the onion. Also, I was thinking I'd use some cooked chicken chunks tossed in for variation. This is a very rich soup. I ate one bowl and my husband polished off the rest for dinner and his lunch.

Egg Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
I've used a similiar recipe like this one for years. Our recipe differs by using evaporated milk and no butter. I use a grooved rolling pin and can cut out noodles in no time. Some pickled Jalapenos goes extremely well with them. Cajun spice is another great flavor to sprinkle on them for a change as well.

Red Pepper Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
This is a good soup base. I cooked little mini ground beef balls to add to this, because I have a meat loving husband. I decided to use ground beef because of the stuffed peppers concept. I only used salt and pepper in them before browning. I added a pinch of cumin and paprika to taste. Careful with the cumin will take over the flavor before you know it. Next time I will add some cooked potato chunks. Definitely will roast and take the skins off the peppers before making this soup again.
