Simple Scones

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2006
I used salted butter and they were fine. The hardest part was hand grating the butter and the whole mix with your fingers thing I didn't go for. So this morning I grated the frozen butter with my food processor, switched to the chopping blade, added the flour and just pulsed it a couple of times. Dumped in the wet ingredients and pulsed just until combined. MUCH easier, (probably took a total of 1 minute) and texture is the same. These are excellent! For the raisin version, I suggest adding a generous amount of cinnamon. The cherry/almond combination is wonderful. I also did a lemon/blueberry and a lemon/cranberry batch but definitely use fresh grated lemon rind along with lemon extract.

Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2006
Nice crunchy crust which I love, but it definitely needs more spices. To make the coating stick even better, first dip breasts in flour and shake off excess. Then dip in egg and cracker crumb mixture and press it in. Flattening the breasts or cutting in smaller strips is a good idea and saves on frying time.

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2006
These burn when baked at 400 for 12 min. Very cake-like and nothing to rave about as far as flavor.

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2006
I added nutmeg and garlic. Didn't have chicken broth so used vegetable with a chicken bouillon cube. Skipped the roux and mixed the flour in with the milk; left the broccoli in small pieces instead of doing the puree. Much less effort overall and it's good soup.

Best White Icing Ever

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2006
I used half Crisco and half salted butter. Also added some almond extract. I like it much better than the all Crisco icing I've been using for years, and the butter did not affect the whiteness of the icing.

Fabulous Homemade Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2005
Excellent bread. I thought I would have to freeze some because this is a very large recipe, but heating 2 day old slices for a few seconds in the microwave makes them taste like they are freshly baked. Also great toasted.

Bourbon Pecan Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2005
My husband actually liked this better the next day, reheated briefly in the microwave then finished in the oven. I can't imagine using that much butter in the sauce, I cut it back by 1/4 cup.

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2005
This is great, not so sticky and overly sweet as most recipes. It is now my recipe of choice.

The texture is fine and the flavor "OK"; personally I prefer a good crust and a little more spice.

Orange Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2005
This is an excellent cake. I made with orange extract as I didn't have lemon. Cut the butter for the glaze back to 3 T. and glad I did or it would taste more like butter than orange.

French Beef Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2005
I used the cheapest cut of meat I could find and cut into cubes myself. Browned the meat with onion and garlic; added more spices and lots more veggies and red wine. Cooked the meat for an hour before adding the veggies and it is melt in your mouth tender.

Easy Turkey Curry

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2005
Good way to use leftover turkey but definitely needs another tablespoon of curry and some pepper. I added peas and topped with french fried onions which I broiled to crisp. Gave it much better flavor. I also cooked my rice with bouillon in the water.

Creamiest Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2005
This is wonderful and easy. I cook the rice with salt to give it more flavor, then cut back on the salt in the pudding. Sprinkle with cinnamon and a little nutmeg and serve warm with 1/2 & 1/2.

Zeppole

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2005
I've never had these in a restaurant so I think they are pretty good. My son says they are nothing like the ones sold at the Italian restaurant near us.

Chili I

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2005
Made as directed and served with choice of rice or pasta and shredded cheese for garnish. All agreed it is the best chili they'd ever tasted. Only change from the recipe was to use l can each small red beans, black beans, and kidney beans. Wish I had doubled the recipe!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2005
These are very sweet and delicious. I added 1 tsp. each vanilla and cinnamon and used an extra banana because mine were small. Be sure to use very ripe bananas. These disappeared fast when I took them to a ladies' brunch. For myself, I would add chopped nuts.
