Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2003
This is just *excellent*!! My Boyfriend who did not like wine got addicted to this! I double the liquids (marsala and sherry) for more sauce, the original quantity will leave any "sauce type" guest on their appetite. I also sprinkle oregano in the pan since it doesn't stick to the chicken very well. Délicieux!

Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2005
I tried this at my very first attempt to make fudge. PERFECT! I took the time to read the reviews and it helped me understand what I was doing. Everybody raved about this fudge and asked me how to do it. Note: Wait for a full boil before you start the 7 minutes timer. I did not stir at all while the sugar was boiling.

Cheese Fondue

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2005
Good fondue base however, a great fondue should ALWAYS have a minimum of 2 different cheeses. Lower the portion of swiss cheese and compensate with gruyere or emmental (my favorite), or any kind of firm cheese that suits your taste. Also, in addition to bread you can use crispy veggies or cold meats, like ham cubes. A good quality blond beer can also be used instead of the wine if you are a beer enthousiast. If you have never tried fondue before, stick to the wine.

White Russian Tiramisu

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2005
Love it Love it Love it! Even my husband keeps asking when I will make the next one! Being french canadian, we love brandy in coffee so I added a little shot of brandy with the kahlua/coffee mixture for dipping. I also dip a little longer for stronger taste. Yum!

Peach Cobbler Dump Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2005
Very, very easy to make when you are short of time and ingredients for something more fancy. Tasted better with some frozen raspberries sprinkled in with the peaches (about 1/4 cup)for a Peches Melba effect and color.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2005
Easy potroast! I use garlic in mine (cut holes and place a bit of garlic in them every inch or closer) and I add root veggies and mushrooms in the pot. We just love opening the door after a day at work and get that wonderful home cooked meal smell that says "welcome home, dinner is ready!" :)

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2005
I added garlic powder and beef broth instead of plain water for more flavor. I also added a can of sliced mushrooms, there can't be a Strog without visible mushrooms. This one is a keeper, both my husband and I enjoyed it. Served over long white rice.

Golden Rum Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2006
This was perfect for New Year's party! Easy to make with the cake mix and pudding, and yet different. I will make this again however I will experiment with coconut or pecans, the walnuts were a little bitter to my taste.

Chicken Parmigiana

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
Very simple and you do not have to be exact, easy to season the way your family loves it. I use a mix of italian cheeses - we are cheese lovers.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2006
I made this for my mom's birthday and she was REALLY pleased! I had to make a second batch because they were gone within an hour. I used regular FAST acting dry yeast in the machine and it worked just fine. I let it raise more then I was supposed to, and waited 30 minutes with the dough on the counter before I rolled it. When ready to roll, I set my oven to 200F and shut it off when it reached the correct temp. Then I left my rolls sitting in the oven (covered with a damp cloth) next to a bowl of water until they touched each other. Pulled them out, cranked it up to 400F for the actual baking time. Mine were ready in 12 minutes. I added an extra ounce of cream cheese for the second batch of icing. Yum! This is a keeper! Notes: place the “ends” at the bottom of the pan. Also, you can spread the icing almost immediately as it does not melt as much as the commercial stuff. The 9x13 dish would have been too small, I use one size bigger and sprayed it with butter flavored non-stick spray, and I had no problems removing the buns.

Chicken Cordon Bleu I

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2006
This is very easy to make. I place the chiken breasts in ziploc type bags to pound them down, it avoids a mess and the resuts are nicer with the meat being between plastic sheets anyway. I also use oregano instead of salt (plenty of salt in the ham), and brown the rolls in the pan instead of using breading for a lighter results. A success every time, they don't last long.

Bread Machine Challah I

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2006
This bread is *tasty* and really easy to make. I used 3 eggs and real butter instead of margerine. The only downside is that the bread was too big for my machine. I will make the dough again and bake it in the oven.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2006
Excellent bread pudding base. I used an egg bread that was too dry to eat, some raisins and a quarter cup of chocolate chips. Will make it with brown sugar next time.

Spinach Cheese Manicotti

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2006
Loved it, exactly what I was looking for. I did not use any water, added more garlic and seasonings to give it a little taste: would have been very bland otherwise. Hubby still found it a little bland, I will triple the parmesan next time. I filled a quart zip bag with the cheese and cut a hole in a corner to fill the noodles, made my life easier.

Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2006
This is just the simplest and quickest cookie fix ever! We love home made cookies and this saves me alot of trouble when I don't feel like mesuring too much. I use butter flavored Crisco for crispy/chewy cookies (more volume too) and the Swiss Chocolate cake mix is our big winner for double chocolate cookies. I love to add a cup of pecans (or other nuts) as well. A family favorite!

Pork Chops with Fresh Tomato, Onion, Garlic, and Feta

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2007
WONDERFUL! A family favorite. I am impressed with how easy and tasty this recipe was. I made this for a guest that is quite a picky gourmet and she loved it. I used a tbs of minced garlic to save time and only red tomatoes, saving a few for the salad. I served the chops next to a mixed greens salad with fresh tomato and cucumber. I also used feta with herbs and tomato, will try one with sun dried tomato next time. I sometimes use a can of diced and seasoned tomato if I don’t have fresh ones on hand. This is also very good with chicken, I do it at least once a month!

Awesomely Easy Sesame Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
This was very good, quick and really easy. I used a bunch of thin asparagus and followed the instructions, worked perfect: result was green and crunchy. I used half the sesame seeds (regular ones) as the rest seemed to stay in the pan. I think a bit of sesame oil would help next time for better flavor.
