Cut-Out Cookies in a Flower Pot

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
Fabulous! I made exactly as written and they were great. It was hard to pick a cookie recipe but I'm glad I chose this one. I divided the dough into 3 smaller parts to roll out, and when one section got too soft, I put it in the freezer and worked another section. These cookies were AMAZING! Now I just have to find an icing I like. Thanks for a great recipe!! I'll never try another!

Rice & Beans (Haitian Style)

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
This was great! I haven't been back to Haiti for years and was starting to get antsy for non-boxed rice and beans, so I figured I'd try and recreate the dish here. I love it because it's so simple! I couldn't find a scotch bonnet pepper so I used a jalapeno. It was good, but the scotch bonnet is so necessary to Haitian cooking that I'm keeping my eye open for them. Also, I couldn't find adobo seasoning but I don't think I missed it. It was good even with the changes I had to make. Plus it smelled DELICIOUS! I even made hubby eat with his hands like I used to. I gave it four stars because it would be too liquidy as written, that is more New Orleans style. Only 4 to 4-1/4 cups of the bean's water is needed. This one is a keeper, thank you!

Mrs. Sigg's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
SO good. After a failure with chocolate chip cookies, I was nervous making cookies from scratch. I was between this and the Classic peanut butter cookie recipe from this site. I chose this one, and had to use a cup of butter because I didn't have any shortening. I also used a little more than a TSP of vanilla extract... on accident... and added 1/2 C. peanut butter (reduced fat) per suggestions of reviewers. These were SO yummy! I froze 18 and baked approximately 18 more (I ate so many, I'm not sure how many I baked!). Anyway, these are amazing. The next day, they were crunchy, so I popped them in the microwave for about 20 seconds for three and they were like fresh! Fabulous... I think I'll make these every two weeks :) Next time, though, I may use one egg and one egg YOLK to make them a bit chewier.

Marinated Ranch Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2010
This is the most delicious and moist chicken I have EVER cooked. EVER!! It deserves ten stars. Marinated it for the day and cooked on a stovetop grill. I will NEVER use plain chicken again. Definitely let it sit for about 10 minutes after you remove it from the heat. SO tender and juicy. You can't go wrong with this one; can't wait to try other meat!

Garlic Bubble Ring

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
YUM! I made this in the "monkey bread" style, using smalled "balls" of dough in two rings around the pan. My husband and I ate half the loaf for dinner. I made this as directed, using just one stick of butter... it was more than enough to coat the little dough balls. I've FOUND my solution for Texas toast. We're making one of these every few days from now on! Thanks for a fabulous recipe!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
This was really good, we just don't like broiled fish :( But I read that someone made it with chicken, and we definitely want to keep this spread in our recipe book!

Nanny's Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
This was a good recipe, though next time I'm definitely going to cut back on the vinegar next time. It was a little acidic for us. I added some more seasoning because it was a bit bland (well... a bit tomatoey) and it needed some kick. This was so good and it made a lot.. much more economical than that jarred stuff. I didn't think it was really all hat thick, so I added some parmesan toward the end. I may just get the bigger can of paste next time or cut one tomato sauce can out. We'll definitely be keeping this one.

Mexican Sour Cream Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
This was excellent! I gave it four stars because it was kind of boring to start with, but that's the way a recipe should start! I followed the recipe, except that all I had was a jalapeno pepper (which I seeded and diced), dry cilantro and a bigger can of corn (15 oz. instead of 8.75). It was a bit dry so I increased the sour cream by about 3/4 c. and pepped it up with some paprika (great color!), cumin, and chili powder for some kick. The light sour cream was perfect flavor! I garnished it with a lime and figured lime and cilantro go together, so I squeezed some on top and MAN... was it ever good. Next time I may add lime juice from the get-go. I'm not buying the boxed Mexican rice EVER again.

Garlic and Ranch Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
These were SO good. At the suggestion of others, added about 1/4 c. of bread crumbs (italian style) and a dash of paprika. The hubs and I thought these were DELICIOUS, even though they did fall apart a bit while cooking. I have no idea how to fix that, but it's worth experimenting. These were not dry at all, very juicy and yummy. The texture was different than beef, softer, but not in a bad way. I prepared them in a skillet, just because I don't have a grill! I've never made turkey burgers, but we just may be converts. Thanks big j! :)

Best Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
as suggested, i added about a half cup of sour cream to combat the dryness. i also topped with buttered ritz crackers (i didn't have any potato chips). the ritz crackers stepped it up a notch!! this was a GREAT recipe! my husband doesn't love tuna, but went back for seconds on this dish. two thumbs up :)

Balsamic Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
i love balsamic vinegar, but the sautee method does take quite a while. next time i will steam them first and coat them in a skillet with the vinegar, sugar and oil. great recipe for another tasty vegetable side dish!

Simple Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
FABULOUS! i'm never making beef chili again. i don't feel bad for going back for seconds! instead of crushed tomatoes (couldn't find any), i used 2 smaller cans of no salt added petite diced tomatoes. i also added a little more chili powder and cumin (personal preference), used dark red kidney beans, and served it with cornbread casserole from this site. topped with light sour cream and a tiny sprinkle of mexican style shredded cheese. even my beef-loving husband loved it. next time, we're doubling the recipe. thanks so much!

Citrus Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
i gave this 4 stars because, with a few inprovements, it was really good. i gave it a chance because the reviews were promising. i marinated the chicken in italian dressing, orange juice and a dash of soy sauce (sounds weird but it was so good!) and sprinkled pepper, salt, onion and garlic power on the chicken before browning. i did everything else as directed. the rice was really good (part if the orange juice was squeezed from the orange i used). the hubbu actually loved this! give it a shot with your own twists. it's worth keeping. served it with the 'green beans in orange oil' from this site. great starting recipe !!

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
Yum! I needed a quick appetizer/tailgate dish and I have been wanting to try these for a while. I actually used regular deli ham and chive cream cheese.. it was SO delicious. I cut the asparagus into thirds to make it a bite sized. I also blanched the asparagus, and served the dish cold. Even my green-hating dad liked these and I couldn't stop eating them. Great recipe.
