Bread Machine Challah II

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2013
Can't believe I never reviewed this recipe...have been using for a couple of years. It is fantastic! I make just as written except usually use 4 1/2 cups of flour. I also sprinkle with sesame seeds or poppy seeds after the egg wash. This is an unbelievably great recipe, which my husband loves! Thank you SO much for this wonderful recipe...now if I could only braid the bread better!

Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2013
This was my first time trying corned beef and cabbage, and all I can say is WOW! Tasted fantastic! I followed recipe exactly except for cutting carrots into slices instead of matchsticks. The potatoes were not mushy at all...they were just right! Cabbage cooked quickly, so no problems with that. And, as I followed the directions of the recipe, I did cook it on HIGH. The corned beef was SO tender! Love this recipe, and will definitely make it again! Thank you LUSYRSGIRL for a fantastic recipe. Absolutely delicious!!

Cranberry and Cilantro Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2013
This was the first time I tried quinoa, but it won't be the last! Really liked the crunch of the almonds, and the sweetness of the cranberries. I used dried cranberries sweetened with apple juice from the health food store. The salad looks pretty, and is good for you. Gotta love that! I did drizzle a little olive oil on top of my serving...perfect!

Three Cheese Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
Yum yum! This was SO good! I ran out of provolone, so used a little mozzarella to make up for it. I also used a combination of half and half with heavy cream. Perfect! I covered with foil for the first half of baking as suggested by one reviewer, and the potatoes cooked perfectly! My husband loved this as well, so I will definitely make this again. Thanks so much for the wonderful recipe!

Aunt Blanche's Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
I have been searching for years for a nice, sweet blueberry muffin recipe, and now I found it! I used frozen blueberries as that is what I had on hand, and also added 1 teaspoon of vanilla to batter. Otherwise, followed exactly. Next time I want blueberry muffins, I will look no further than this recipe. Definitely a keeper, and I am so glad I found it! Thanks, Bevy!

Onion Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
This recipe was really scrumptious, and oh so very rich! I just loved the taste of the crispy French bread on top of the onion mixture. So easy to make, that I will make this recipe again, probably around the holidays. Thanks for a wonderful treat!

Scottish Shortbread IV

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
f I could give this recipe 10 stars I would! By far the best shortbread recipe I have ever used. I've only ever used confectioner's sugar in the dough, but will never go back from the brown sugar! I did add 1 teaspoon vanilla to mine as I love the vanilla flavor. I used 4 cups flour (I read somewhere that the ratio of flour to butter should be 2 to 1 in shortbread). I kneaded for around 30 seconds in the bowl, and then pressed the dough into a jelly roll pan. After pricking all over with a fork, baked as directed. I also sifted confectioner's sugar all over the top of the warm cookies before cutting. Made them look beautiful, and gave just a little added sweetness. I LOVE shortbread, and will make this recipe over and over. Thank you SO very much!

Pancakes I

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
These were wonderful, and were similar to a recipe I had and lost years ago. Per personal preference, I used melted butter instead of vegetable oil, and added 1 teaspoon of vanilla. I also let the batter rest in the refrigerator for around 30 minutes before cooking. Perfection! Will use this recipe again and again....thanks!

Yorkshire Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2010
I've made this a couple of times, and each time was just GREAT! This is by far the best recipe for Yorkshire Pudding I've found, and it is definitely a keeper! The first time I made, I had no juice left from the roast I made, so used 1/4 cup olive oil and 1/4 cup butter. Marvelous! The second time, I used the the au jus from my brisket...YUM! Thank you SO much for the great recipe!

Slow-Cooked, Texas-Style Beef Brisket

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2010
This is an awesome recipe that makes great barbecue sandwiches! I'm not sure why some reviewers meat burnt...I had so much juice with mine that I had to take quite a bit out! I used the juice I removed to make Yorkshire Pudding (Mort Tibble's recipe, this site) cause I love Yorkshire Pudding! The sauce with this recipe was sweet (which I like, by the way), but after adding it to the meat with the juice in the slow-cooker, it toned down the sweetness a lot. Next time I make this, I will probably add a little more brown sugar! I cooked this a full 24 hours, and it was just fantastic! Highly recommended!

Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
Absolutely the best steak marinade I have ever made. I followed to a T, and marinaded for 20 hours before grilling. So, so very good! I do recommend using a good quality balsamic vinegar as it is a must to get the best flavor. Definitely a keeper!

Roasted New Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
So easy and oh so good! Ten minutes before they were done, I tossed some chopped onion and minced garlic in with the potatoes. I also added some rosemary with the salt and pepper just because I love rosemary on potatoes! Excellent, simple, and quick to make; thanks for the great recipe!

Carrots 'n' Celery with Pecans

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2010
Yum! I thought this was very good! I did add a little bit more dill weed, plus a dash of pepper. The dish looked great, and went excellently with the chicken I prepared, plus was very easy. Thanks for a great recipe!

Classic Tiramisu

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2010
I have made several recipes for tiramisu, but this is the best one BY FAR I have ever made. I like the fact that this one is sweeter than the others, plus I like the fact that you cook the egg...makes it just a little bit safer in my viewpoint. I did not have mascarpone cheese, so used the cream cheese/sour cream/whipping cream substitute used by LGIORGI on that review. Since my ladyfingers were hard, I made around 1 1/2 cups of strong coffee with a little Kahlua, soaking each ladyfinger for just a few seconds. If you use this method, do not soak too long or the ladyfingers will fall apart. Everything came out perfect. I impressed the heck out of my guests! :D Wonderful, wonderful recipe, which I will definitely make again, probably over the holidays. Thank you VERY MUCH for the great recipe!

Black Bean, Corn, and Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2010
This was really fantastic! I stayed true to the recipe except I used a can of whole kernel corn as I didn't have corn on the cob. Just the right amount of spiciness, plus I love the flavor from the feta cheese. Very, very good, and I will definitely make again and again. Thank you SO much for the great recipe!

Layered Chicken and Black Bean Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
This was very good, and so easy. I didn't have any red enchilada sauce, and so used the green enchilada sauce I had on hand. For the cheese, I mixed Monterrey Jack cheese and Cheddar. Excellent! I can't wait to make this again, using the red enchilada sauce! Thanks for the great recipe!

Texas Ranch Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
This was SO easy, and delicious! My husband loved it. I did salt and pepper the chicken, and marinate it in the ranch dressing for a couple of hours. I then followed the rest of the recipe as written. Very very good, and I will make again...often!

Sticky Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
Yum! This was very good, and SO easy! I basted the chicken with the leftover sauce a couple of times during cooking, making sure to get all the sesame seeds on the chicken. This is definitely a keeper recipe that I will make again. I took the leftover chicken from dinner, cut into small pieces, and added chopped celery, some pecan pieces, and a little bit of mayo, making a wonderful chicken salad for the next day, too!

Vanilla Glaze

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2010
This was so very, very good. Just easy, breezy to make. I did use a little more milk, but otherwise stuck to the exact recipe. I've served it over a chocolate torte, as well as scones I made. This is a great addition to my recipes, and I will use this again and again. Thanks so very much for the great recipe!
