Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2013
Awesome Restaurant Quality! Made minimal changes....DOUBLE THE RECIPIE...YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU DID! Always start with a mirepoix(carrots,celery,onion)! Used a whold bag of finely chopped carrots and a whole bag peeled and finely chopped celery. You want the celery,carrots and onions to be a little bigger in size than the rice. Fried those in a little oil for about 5 minutes then added 1 cup finely chopped onions to that mix and sauteed' for another 5. Also used a rotisserie chicken that I shreded, leaving off the skin. Also down graded the flour to 1/2 cup when making the roux'(flour and butter. MUST add the liquid to the roux' NOT the roux' to the liquid or you will get lumps. Also used a 6.5oz package of wild rice. Outstanding soup! My daughter ate if for 3 days straight. After sitting overnight, the soup became way too thick, but I just added more chicken stock and it was excellent.

Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2012
Crust Recipe NOT CORRECT! Made the crust EXACTLY as stated. Used one cup of butter flavored shortening that was room temp. Came out like a thick, sticky pancake batter. Could not even roll it out it was so sticky. Made 2nd batch in my food processor using the dough blade. Used Ice cold unsalted butter. Should have stopped at 3/4 cup but did not. Had to add more flour to get it right. You need to stop adding shortening when the flour mixture resembles coarse sand with rocks in it. Then add the ice cold water and egg. Shortening or butter needs to be COLD! Reading other reviews on the peach mixture, I used half brown sugar and half white. Cut back on the juices to 1/4 cup each and it still came out runny even with 2 1/2 T of corn starch. Will try Elnore's Peach cobbler next. Just way too much trouble with this recipe.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
Best Ham and Potato Soup EVER! Like the recipe said, you can add what ever you want. I cut up 12oz of bacon and fried that until almost crisp then saute'ed the onions and celery in the grease. Instead of milk I used heavy cream. I doubled the recipe and thank goodness because my 6,8 and 11 year old children could not get enough!

Maryland Crab Cakes III

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2007
These were awesome! I used Club crackers instead of saltines. The butter flavor really added to the recipe. I chopped the onion and celery super fine and used just a little less onion than 1/4c. I was skeptical about broiling them because I have always pan fried my crabcakes, but WOW! They were as good if not better that pan fried. It took about 5-6 min per side under the broiler. I used whole lump crab on sale 2lb for $16. I will be making these this way from now on. As a topper sauce I took one part mayo, one part Di'jon mustard and a splash of Worstershire sauce and mixed it and placed a dollop on top. EXCELLENT!

Poor Man's Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2006
This is the best way to cook the cheaper cuts of meat! I bought 4 cube steaks for $5 bucks. I cooked the garlic, peppers and onions in oil first then placed in the baking dish. Then I salted and peppered the flour. Dredging the steaks in that. I browned both sides of the steaks in vegtable oil, removing them when browned. Then I deglazed the pan with 1 14.5oz can of beef broth, letting it reduce also. I then placed the steaks in the bottom of the baking dish and placed the pepper mixture on top, then poured the broth drippings over that and baked. WONDERFUL....feeds a family of 5 for under $8.00. Add a slice of provolone to the top also for a variation. THANKS!

Gerry's Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2004
Best enchiladas ever! I did not marinate the chicken. But I will keep the breasts whole the next time because it was a pain picking all the chicken pieces out of the stew like mixture. You can just brown the outside of the chicken and then add the other stuff no need to cook all the way thru on the first step. They were a little time consuming but well worth it. AWESOME! They were so good my wife made me make a second batch, 2 days later. Did not marinate the chicken. Did not use cream on the shells, just heated in microwave to make soft and pliable. Left the chicken whole and it was easier the second time. This will be a weekly meal. Also used smaller tortilla shells just rolled more. THANKS GERRY

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2004
Made this over the weekend. AWESOME! Great sauce and better than my chicken marsala. Only changes I made were to cut the mustard to 1/4 cup and cutting back on the seasoned salt. I also sauted' the mushrooms prior to placing on the chicken. My wife raved about the meal and it was a big hit with the inlaws. Best chicken for a long time.

Cajun Crab Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2003
AWESOME! The soup was excellent. Next time I'm going to cut back on the cayanne to 1/8 ts. My wife does not like things too hot. The second day the pepper seemed to mello though. For a little thicker soup use 1/3 cup flour. Big time keeper. Thanks.

Baked Chicken with Peaches

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2003
Probably will make again. Chicken was tender, jucy and flavorful. It seemed to be lacking something though. Not what shure.I used canned peaches instead of fresh and about 4 TBS of the syrup. I cut the sugar in half. I poured off the sauce, reduced it and thickened it using 1tsp of cornstarch and a little water. I also finished browning the chicken under the broiler. Chicken does not brown under the curren recipe directions. Sauce was excellent. Maybe needs a sour additive.

Awesome!!!!! Recipe easily doubles. I added an extra can of beans. I tried 2 boxes of frozen spinach instead of the fresh and it turned out fantastic. Best soup I've ever tased and made. Way better than my wedding soup.
