Easy Chicken Satay

Reviewed: May 10, 2012
This was very good! I used 'lite' coconut milk, which I didnt know existed until I went shopping, and it was very tasty. The sauce is easy to make and yummy. Even better the next day. A keeper!

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: May 3, 2012
Soooo good! I made it as stated, but I did have to cook it at 275' for 1 hour and 15 minutes--and I cut the sugar back to 2 cups. I immediately stuck it in the freezer for exactly 45 minutes and it was excellent. Best Banana Cake ever. I used to love the Banana Cake sold at Beaverton Bakery in Beaverton, Oregon, and this is just as good--if not better. It's very moist and flavorful. I used a different frosting recipe; I used the Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting recipe from this site and my husband loved it. He said the frosting made it even better. I usually make banana bread with left-over yucky bananas--never again. I will make this from now on. Trust me--this is the Banana Cake recipe to use--and follow the unorthodox baking instructions exactly. You wont be disappointed. Yummy!!!

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: May 3, 2012
Excellent! I used this on the Banana Cake VI recipe on this site, and it was amazing. My husband said this frosting really made the whole dessert complete. Super easy to make and it isnt heavy. Very light and tasty! A keeper! I plan on using it again and again.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: May 2, 2012
Excellent and so easy! I cooked 4 frozen chicken breasts in low-sodium chicken broth, sliced onion and garlic on high for 3 hours and drained it. Then I shredded the chicken, returned it to the crockpot and put the barbeque sauce/italian dressing mixture in and cooked it on low for another 5 hours. It was very tasty! This is a keeper!

Pork Tenderloin with Dijon Marsala Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2012
Excellent! I browned the tenderloin with salt and pepper before slathering the dijon mustard on and then roasting it. I also added fresh mushrooms and minced garlic with the shallot and am glad I did. It definitely needs the mushrooms. It was so good. My husband loved it! A keeper!

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
I admit, I cheated a bit...I used frozen meatballs, but the sauce is very tasty!! This is so easy to make and is perfect for parties or even just if you want a small appetizer for two. So yummy! A classic and a keeper!

The Best Parmesan Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
I thought this was excellent! I was a little leery of making it considering it had a lot of negative comments, but I am glad that I did. The only thing I did different was I browned the chicken for just a bit first and then assembled it. I baked it for about 40 minutes and it was wonderful. Yum!! A keeper!

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
Excellent and super easy to make! I did exactly what the directions specified--I didnt touch it once it started boiling and it turned out great. I used semi-sweet chocolate on the top and instead of pecans, I used sliced almonds. My husband says it tastes exactly like Almond Roca--which we both love. I plan on making this more often; it is so easy and cheap to make. A keeper!

Cheese Fondue

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2011
I worked at a Melting Pot for several years in the early 90's and this is the exact recipe we used for our traditional swiss cheese fondue. It's excellent! It's also good with a smidge of Kirschwasser (cherry brandy) too. Yummy!!

Jif® Peanut Butter Blossoms

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2011
I made these exactly as stated except I took the advice of the Top Reviewer and made these in a mini-muffin pan. I used festive liners, rolled a small ball of dough in the sugar, baked them for exactly 8:20, and then squished a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup in the middle right after I pulled them out of the oven. They were the perfect texture and doneness. I think they are super yummy! I never ate traditional Peanut Butter Blossoms prior to this, but think these are excellent! I plan on making them a part of my Christmas cookie collection from now on.

Bread and Celery Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
This is a classic! Last year, instead of using Swanson's chicken broth in a can, I used Swanson's Chicken Stock in the resealable bottle and loved it. It has a richer flavor and really added a lot to the taste of the stuffing. I will never used the canned broth again. Tips: this is great with some apples diced and sauteed with the onion and celery, too. I always use more onion and celery than called for because it reduces in size when sauteed, and add a beaten egg or two (depending on the amount I am making) to help bind it all together. Also--if you can find it in the store, I recommend using Bell's seasoning in the little yellow box. This is the stuffing/dressing I grew up on. Yum!

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
This is the best! I've been making this super easy recipe for years and just pulled one out of the oven this minute. It is perfect! I have been wanting to use fresh cooked pumpkin for a pie, and when I do--this is the recipe I am going to use. Yummy!!!

Ham Broccoli Braid

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
This is very good! I cooked the onion, broccoli and ham together along with one minced clove of garlic. I also added about 1/4 cup of sour cream and a dollop of mayonnaise to the dijon. In addition to swiss, I added sharp cheddar cheese--about a 50/50 blend. I also only used 1 crescent roll instead of two and it turned out to be the perfect size for just us two. Very tasty!! A keeper! Update: I made this again last night and used 2 Pillsbury Crescent Seamless Dough Sheets and it was perfect! I liked it the first time I made it, but loved it the second time. I am going to experiment using chicken instead of ham. Also, if you think about it--it is technically the same thing as a stromboli, so you could make it with pizza fillings. Yummy!

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
To. Die. For. This is THE best Artichoke Spinach dip I have ever tasted. I made it as directed, all the way down to the garlic salt--but I did add about 1/8 cup additional parmesan cheese (wanted to empty the remaining smidge out of one container). SO good! Look no further--this is the recipe to beat! A keeper!

Banana Bread VII

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
I have been making this recipe for years and I am telling you--it is THE best banana bread recipe you will ever find. I always receive compliments on it. The trick is to use really ripe bananas--like yucky, brown bananas. It gives the bread a richer banana taste. Yum! Look no further, baby, because this is it!!!

Chicken Pot Pie II

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
This is very good! I made it as stated and it was super yummy. Dont ruin it by using canned cream of (fill-in-the-blank) soup. It doesnt need it at all. My husband loved it. A keeper!

Oven Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2011
This is very good! I skipped the butter and seared the roast in olive oil. I also seared the carrots and onions with 3 smashed cloves of garlic. I placed them on top of the roast and they werent mushy at all. I used vermouth, a whole packet of Onion Soup mix, low-sodium Cr. of Mushroom soup and a can of Campbells Beef Consumme. I am going to skip the flour next time because the gravy was a little too thick for my liking, but it was very tasty. I used my Cuisinart enamel cast-iron dutch oven and it was so tender in under 3 hours. Very good!

Baked Zucchini Chips

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2011
Excellent! I used whole eggs instead of just egg whites since I didnt want to hassle with it and they turned out perfect. Crispy and very tasty! I doctored up the breadcrumbs a bit and added extra parmesan. So good--such a flashback to the 80's when we would eat zucchini sticks at happy hour. Love these!

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2011
Very good! I added artichokes and fresh basil instead of dried, since I love fresh basil in salads. I toasted the pines nuts, too. It's perfect for a potluck because it makes a ton. Yummy and not heavy, which is nice for summer. I plan on making this again and again. Definitely a keeper!
