Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2014
Delicious! We have made this quite often over the last few years. Tonight I rediscovered my pressure cooker. I prepared exactly per the recipe and added about a half cup of rice... Pressure cooked for about six minutes and it was fantastic! Just as good as when I simmer for an hour. Try it!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2013
Loved these! And believe it or not, so did the kids. This is saying a LOT, because my son does not eat anything green. I served this with steak and pineapple, and these were the very first thing he ate. I did half them prior to roasting and added a small amount of garlic. I almost wish I had left them in a little longer (I took them out after about 20-25 minutes) because the ones that were darker were so much better and melty and sweet!

Chicken Enchiladas With Mole Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2012
Just finished making this for dinner tonight. Luckily I did not have to work - the time involved is lengthy but well worth it. My husband and I gobbled it up! The recipe as written makes a lot of extra mole sauce, so I froze the leftovers. Probably could have done with only half the amount. And as another reviewer noted, I cut back on the chicken broth in the mole sauce (used about 1/2 the amount). We will make this again, on another day when we have a lot of time. Would recommend chopping everything up beforehand, rather than as you go like I did! It would probably save a lot of time in prep.

Stuffed Pepper Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
Loved this! I've made this two times so far. Yes it's sweet, but I like it that way! The 2nd time I made this, I used tiny pasta (Pastini) and cooked it right in the pot with the soup. I guess you could also use Orzo pasta as well. I can never get rice right and was afraid of it soaking up too much liquid and getting mushy. Loving the pastini! Also on the 2nd try, I didn't have any tomato sauce so I used a jar of Ragu traditional spaghetti sauce. I swear it tasted even better!!! (Probably the added spices)

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Reviewed: May 21, 2010
WOW! This is absolutely delicious. Made as-is except used butter instead of margarine. I made it the first time using orville's 'original' kernels. The 2nd time I made it, I used orville's 'white' kernels and what a difference (smaller, whiter and much more tender!). I'll be making this for holiday treats this year and I can't wait!

Mumze's Sticky Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2010
I make this about once a week, the only thing I change is I use a teaspoon of the jarred garlic / ginger paste from the grocery store instead of garlic powder. I usually make it with 1 pound of drumettes for the kids and a few chicken thighs for me and my husband. We all love it!

Chesapeake Bay Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
These were just OK in my opinion. A little heavy on the vinegar. I did like the Old Bay, so I may try to make this again with less vinegar and somehow incorporate butter instead!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
Wow, this was pretty darned good! My other meatloaf recipe will have to be retired. I added a little worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and ginger powder to the ketchup and brown sugar mixture. I also poured the sauce on top of the meatloaf instead of putting it on the bottom. Although I think it may get more caramelized on the bottom so I'll try that next time. My 3 and 5 year old had seconds - which NEVER happens!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
Okay, I'm NOT a good cookie maker - I always end up trying, and when they don't turn out right I toss them in the trash and head to the store to BUY some. Well, this year I forgot to buy Santa's cookies so I just made a half batch of this recipe. My cookies are PERFECT!!!!! I did not change a thing in this recipe. I dipped my cookies in the 'sugar cookie glaze' recipe found on Allrecipes. Santa and Mrs. Claus really love them!

Sugar Cookie Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
I made this with the 'Best Rolled Sugar Cookies' recipe. Found that 2 T of water made the glaze too runny - it soaked into my cookies. So I made a 2nd batch and only used 1 T of water. It was still liquid enough to dip and instead of soaking in, the glaze sat really nicely on top of the cookie and I had enough time to throw some holiday jimmies on them. I did use water because I wanted a shiny look. I also swirled the food coloring in to give the cookies a marbled look - very cool! Delicious!

Foolproof Rib Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
Delicious! I crusted the fatty side using the recipe for 'Garlic Prime Rib'. The only change I made was roasing at 500 for 30 minutes, then 375 for 30 minutes the followed the rest of the recipe exactly and it came out PERFECTLY. Yes, it comes out medium rare (maybe on the rare side) but in my opinion it's jucier that way. This is on my list for Chrismas Eve dinner every year now! Served with 'rice so nice' and au jus (drippings + 1/2 cup red wine + 1/2 cup beef stock).

Sausage Cups

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
Delicious! I made a few modifications... I used hot sausage and added 2 diced jalapenos (deseeded / deveined). This gave them a nice bite! I also used the premade phyllo shells based on previous reviews. Much lighter and crisper!! This is a keeper!

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
Absolutely delicious! I did use only 1/4 cup of white sugar to cut down on the sweetness.

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
Yum, I'll be making this again for sure! I did modify by: cutting back on the honey; added about 1 tsp of ground ginger, an extra clove of minced garlic, a little orange juice, about 1 tablespoon of brown sugar and a teaspoon of sesame oil. I only wish I had added some crushed red pepper. The chicken was falling off the bone and the sauce was wonderful. Warning - the sauce doesn't taste that good by itself (i.e., dipping your finger in before adding to the chicken) but it's really really good once it's baked onto the chicken. I also basted the wings every 10-15 min or so during cooking and cooked at 400 uncovered the entire time.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
Wow, this was so easy that I was skeptical. It's absolutely delicious! I did add 1 additional cup of confectioners sugar and one additional tsp of vanilla. Used this on pumpkin bars and they were phenomenal. Much better than store-bought frosting. It was also fluffier than I expected!

Crispy Orange Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2009
Absolutely delicious! My husband just ate 3 plates full of this recipe. I did as others suggested and let the cornstarch-coated beef sit for about 10 minutes before frying it. I used wok oil, just a little at a time, and fried in small batches. I cut the ginger in half and maybe could have done with no orange peel; served with sushi rice and a bag of micro-steam broccoli. I'll be making this again!

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
Yummy! It's almost like an asian version of a sloppy joe! Next time, however, I'll make it with ground pork. To me, the beef flavor didn't go quite as well with the sweetness of the sauce. But very good - my husband and I ate it all!
