Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2013
This was so tasty for so few ingredients. I only used 2 teaspoons of bouillon granules, afraid it might be too salty because I wasn't going to add the thickening ingredients trying to make it healthier. It was perfect that way. Thank you for a real keeper!

The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2013
Loved the crust! Will add more lemon for our taste. Used 6 T. lemon juice and didn't have the tang that we crave. Minor for an easy, go-to recipe. Thanks!

Real NY Jewish Rye Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2013
I followed another reviewer and omitted the potato flakes and reduced the water by 1/4 c. Used pickle juice from Vlasic Reduced Sodium Stackers but next time I'll try Zesty Dills. Used brown sugar. This turned out perfectly. The dough was just wonderful to work with. I baked it in 2 half-loaves for just the two of us, freezing one. Baked them for 25 minutes.

Out of this World Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2013
We started brining turkeys a few years ago. Would never go back to any other method. This recipe has the turkey just falling apart so it might not be for everyone but it sure is for us!

Crustless Spinach and Mushroom Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
This was very good. I never heard of jalapeno yogurt cheese, so I used 1 1/2 c. plain yogurt and a 1/4 t. of my Sister's dried, homegrown habenero. Yahoo! I preferred the quiche on this site I made about a week ago, Crustless Spinach Quiche (and I did add mushrooms; see my review) as I like the cheese to melt into it and Feta won't do that. I increased all of the ingredients by 1/4, using 6 eggs. It took one hour to bake. I'm thinking it would go well with thinly sliced lamb.

Burmese Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2013
We live where you would never find garam masala so I got a recipe off of about.com Even with that, I couldn't get the black cardamon that is used in it. If you follow that recipe you will have a lot left over so be in the mood for Indian food for awhile. I just left the boneless thighs whole and they fell apart in chunks by themselves after cooking. This was a really good recipe but I will add about double the curry for our tastes next time. Thank you!

Naan

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2013
This turned out perfect on the grill and looked so nice but it was way too much for just two of us. I kept the remaining dough in the fridge for several days (actually, I forgot about it), covered with Seran Wrap. I then baked it as a loaf in the oven at 350. I was sorry that I didn't check the time, I'm thinking about a half hour. Just check when it sounds "hollow" when you tap on the center.

Chicken Salad Pitas

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
I omitted the carrot and doubled everything else, shredding rather than cubing the Mozzarella. Used just enough Zesty Italian dressing to moisten. This was nice and crunchy and so tasty. A real keeper!

Hot Buttered Rum Batter

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
This was SOoooo good!!! I served it at a group camping trip along with other hot beverages and this just went right away! Didn't change a thing. Served it with Capt. Morgan's Spiced Rum. This was to die for.

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
So simple and very tasty. I used boneless thighs (our preference) and the Taco Seasoning I recipe from this site except I used 1 T. cayenne instead of 1 t. Very easy with few ingredients.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2013
This was wonderful! I added 8 oz. of sliced mushrooms to the onions with a green pepper and yellow pepper after a couple minutes, then threw in 1# of fresh spinach (large container from Costco) and put the lid on it to cook with no extra liquid. I also used 6 eggs as some other reviewers said. Great way to use up odds and ends vegetables!

Kung Pao Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2013
Quadrupled recipe and used chunky peanut butter instead of peanuts as that's what we had on hand. Won't do that again. I think I'll just lightly chop the peanuts for more crunch next time, larger size than what's in the crunchy peanut butter because they just got lost, but that was my fault. Might go a bit lighter on the cornstarch and brown sugar when making it for 4 people. GREAT FLAVOR!

Chili Relleno Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2013
Fast and simple. It's an "eggier" version than another I've used. Could be used as a breakfast dish.

Cherry Waldorf Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
This was SO different! I had the cherries but not the apples so I omitted them and the lemon juice. I calculated the recipe for 24 servings to use up the cherries that I had. Used walnuts as that is what I had and didn't see the need for the salt. This was a very prett salad and the flavors just blended wonderfully. I will be getting a cherry pitter device for next time because I think there are going to be lots more "next times". This was FANTASTIC!!! Thanks so much for sharing!

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
This was SO tasty...just perfect!!! My new favorite Split Pea Soup recipe. I was a tad more generous with the marjoram, about an 1/8-1/4 t. I'm thinking that is what "makes" this recipe. I didn't add the potato because the consistency was perfect without it. GREAT recipe, thank you for sharing!

Patty's Mom's Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: May 13, 2012
This was just wonderful! Did everything just as written but only pureed half of the beans in the end to give it some texture. Up'd the black pepper to 1 1/2 t. for our tastes. Thanks for sharing!

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: May 7, 2012
I had to use up 1 oz. each of a semi-sweet and unsweetended baking bars. Melted it in the microwave using a total of 3 T. corn syrup to compensate for the unsweetened chocolate. Very nice and not too sweet, just as we like it! Thank you.

Strawberry Cake II

Reviewed: May 7, 2012
I used a French Vanilla cake mix for the base (what I had) and 1# fresh strawberries, pureed, holding a few back for decoration. I put all of the puree into the cake batter. I put it in a bundt pan and baked for 1 hour. I made the Satiny Chocolate Glaze from this site to drizzle over. The cake was extremely moist and dense; think poundcake. It didn't rise as high as a "usual" bundt cake. We don't like things too sweet and it wasn't. 5 stars as it was so moist. I was hesitant to make it because a pink cake doesn't do anything for me visually. I've always had this aversion to them but if someone asked me to make a Strawberry Cake, this would definitely be it. The not-too-sweet glaze went very well with it.

French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2012
I'm not a big fan of French Onion Soup but Hub is. I did a few cheats with what I had on hand but I must say that it couldn't have been any better. I used 4 sweet onions, chicken and beef bouillion granules, 3 T. dried parsley and 1 t. thyme. I would just toast the bread in the toaster next time for better control. Used a good brand of Parmesan in place of the Asiago or Mozzarella. Didn't have ovenproof bowls/crocks so put it in a 9" square casserole. I know that's quite a few changes but when you live in a rural area, you have to use what you have in the house a lot of the time.

Pickled Hot Peppers

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
I reduced the heat for us by using only 1/4# of banana peppers and using Anaheim chilis instead of jalapenos. Everything else stayed the same. These were so nice having them around for sandwiches or just snacking. Thank you!
