Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2012
This was excellent and very easy! I omitted most of the onion (my DH hates onion) and used fat free cheddar cheese and skim milk to make it somewhat healthier, and this was still delicious.

Microwave Baked Potato

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
This is super easy. Thank you to the reviewer who suggested that you put the potatoes in a paper bag before cooking--I'd agree that it helped the steaming process. Will do this one again!

Rosemary Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2012
The first time I cooked a turkey, I was terrified. It seemed so daunting; how could I serve turkey to my friends and family, who were used to my mother-in-law's incredibly-moist, always-delicious turkey? Thank goodness I found this recipe. I followed the instructions (although I modified the cooking time since I was cooking a breast instead of a whole turkey per Butterball's instructions) and the turkey came out perfect. It was moist, flavorful and delicious.

Swedish Meatballs I

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
This is a good easy weeknight dinner! To make it a little easier even, I used store-bought turkey meatballs. Since my husband HATES anything mushroom, I used two cans of low-sodium Cream of Chicken soup. It's very easy and this recipe came in handy when my father-in-law popped in unexpectedly for dinner. These meatballs, with a side of egg noodles, is a delicious quick meal.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
This was a great quick and easy weeknight meal. I also used an olive oil mixture (1/2 oil, 1/2 butter) to cook the garlic and used turkey chops instead of chicken breasts. This was an instant hit--my husband went back for seconds and my finicky toddler didn't offer any of his dinner to the dog (a rarity these days). Good, basic recipe that I'll definitely make again.

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
This really tastes like regular Tiramisu! I didn't have any coffee liqueur, so I just substituted a little coffee, and this still came out tasting like my husband's favorite dessert without the fussiness or difficulty of tiramisu. I've already been asked to make this again.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
These were great! They really do smell and taste like pretzels from a certain mall store. I spritzed a little Smart Balance butter-y spray on them after they'd been in the oven for about 7 minutes, which gave them a little extra flavor. This is a recipe I'll definitely make again--I'm sure it won't be long before my husband asks for another batch.

Apricot Glazed Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
This reminded me of a lighter Sweet & Sour chicken with its tangy yet sweet flavor. Based on the reviews that criticized its "too sweet" flavor, I only used 1/2 cup of apricot preserves and found that it was just sweet enough. I could see using raspberry preserves with this or orange marmalade for a twist. I served this with rice and it was a hit! My husband will probably request this one again in the near future.

Easy Lasagna II

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2007
Good lasagna! My husband, a very picky eater, commented that this is the best lasagna he's ever had. "It's not too ricotta-y," he said. This is easy (for lasagna, which is always messy for me) and very tasty. I may add a little garlic next time. I also substituted non-fat ricotta cheese for the cottage cheese, and it was still very tasty.

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: May 6, 2007
This is a good recipe! I used corn oil and 1 ts of rapid rise bread machine yeast and was very impressed with the results. The texture was fantastic--light, fluffy, with a chewy crust. Good all-around white bread. Also, I did not dissolve the yeast or salt into the water and the bread was great.

Italian Bread Using a Bread Machine

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2007
Great bread! I also made the dough with my stand mixer and dough hook attachment and let the dough rise for about an hour near my oven. This bread is much better than the Italian bread I've bought in the stores! Its texture is perfect--soft with a chewy crust. I'll definitely make this one again.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2005
This one's a winner! I added pineapple and watermelon to the mix and it was great. Didn't even need the sugar--it was sweet enough on its own. Will make this for our 4th of July picnic!

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2005
Great recipe! Tastes just like bread dipped in olive oil. Smells divine when baking. This has been added to my bread rotation...

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2013
Thanks to Ruth's Grandma, I won't buy another pie crust. Pie crusts scared me--they always seemed so difficult to make and I've failed a few times. Not only is this recipe simple, but it makes a darn good crust. A tip from my expert-baker mother-in-law: use very cold water (ice water) and don't handle the crust too much. That makes for a very flaky crust. This is a keeper. No more lousy processed pie crusts for me!

Sweet Corn Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2005
Just like the corn cake found at a famous restaurant chain! This was great... the recipe makes more than enough for a side dish. Very good stuff.

Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2005
This is a great recipe! I made mine for a dinner with friends and they were a big success. We had some left over, and they were just as good the next day.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2013
These don't last long in our house! Very easy to throw together. I use buttermilk instead of "soured milk" and these come out perfect every time.
