Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2009
These are so easy to make. I didn't see a yield anywhere on the amount of liquid, but it was enough for 6 quarts of pickles. Had some extra, not sure if it would have done 7 or not, but I ran out of small cucumbers. I turned the jars upside down for about 10 minutes right after I canned them, and they sealed perfectly. Just make sure the ring is on toght!

Southwest Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
I used left over corn on the cob (3 ears cut off) and roasted it in a little oil with the pre-cooked, cubed chicken. Also used a jar of Chipolte salsa instead of the tomatoes. Served with rice. Great!

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
Went to make enchiladas and didn't have any canned sauce, so I jumped on here. Boy am I glad I did. Used 15 oz can of crushed tomatoes and 1-1/2 cups chicken broth. Doubled garlic and onion powder. Added 1 Tbls ground chocolate like I used for espresso. Perfect! No need to buy canned again.

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
This was very good, but I did add 1 pound (1/2 box) of Velveta cheese to it towards the end. I took held back about 1/2 of the cooked broccoli and added it to the pureed mixture so it was chunky.

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
I really cheat on this one and buy frozen, breaded chicken bites. Deep fry them, make the orange sauce as directed. And pour the sauce over the chicken and rice/ I also steam veggies in the top of my rice steamer at the same time. Quick meal in less than 1/2 hour and not all the mess of breading the chicken yourself.

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
Pretty bland on flavor. Used frozen Roma tomatoes from my garden so shouldn't have lacked tomato flavor. I added a Tbls of chicken base and a little onion powder to give it more flavor. Not the best I have had, but good.

Raspberry White Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
I too served this in chocolate cups that I found at Gordon's around Christmas. Absolutely wonderful and not sickening sweet as you might think it would be.

Jam Kolaches

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
I used to work at a bakery and we made these in apricot and raspberry. I cut them into 2 x 2 sqaures, use a pastry bag filled with jam to place it on the dough instead of a spoon. Then fold them in half so one corner overlaps the opposite corner, and use my finger to pinch the dough together so they don't come apart. I think chilling the dough for only 15-20 minutes works best, as it is too stiff to seal.

Honey Mustard Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2008
Made as recipe indicates and added 3-4 drops of sesame oil to give it more of an "authenic restaurant taste".

BLT Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
OK, How could anything with a pound of bacon be bad??? I added 2 cups finely shredded cheese, some garlic powder and black pepper. Absolutely a hit! Can't wait for the first football tailgate to share the the dip.

Monster Cookies V

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
I ran out of oats so used 6 cups oats and 2-1/2 cups flour. Also added 7 oz bag of coconut and used 3 cups M&M's, no other chocolate or nuts. I made mine 5-6 inches in diameter. Rolled into a 2-3 inch ball and did not flatten them. GREAT!

Oriental Cold Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
Better than what I buy in our local deli! I have been trying to find a recipe like this for several years and this is the one. I omitted the peanuts and carrots and added a little more brown sugar. Also, I just used whole wheat angel hair pasta.

Amazing Sun-Dried Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
Really good -- Sargento has a Sun-dried Tomato & Basil blend of Mozerella Cheese out and I used that. Nice addition to a great recipe.

Easy Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
You all will think I'm crazy, but I placed 2/3 jar of sauerkraut in the bottom of a foil lined baking dish. Then layed the pork loin on top of the kraut and then poured the sauce over the top. I wrapped everything in the foil and baked for about 1-1/2 hours. Served it with mashed potatoes. The meat and kraut were seasoned perfectly, but I will cut down on the ginger a little next time.
