Chunky Chicken Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
This was a yummy filling quick soup for a busy day. I do think there is too much rice:liquid in the ratio, I ended up using 6 cups total of liquid and it was none too thin. The seasoning pack gave a nice hint of flavor but I do agree with other reviewers that you'll probably want to add in some of your favorite seasonings. A great base recipe I look forward to playing off of in the future, thanks for sharing.

Coffee Jelly

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
This was a really refreshing coffee jello I ate right out of the cups, no toppings required. I do love my coffee though. I used three single-serve packets of Splenda instead of sugar, which worked great. I'm always looking for a shortcut so instead of dissolving the gelatin separately I just mixed it into the warm coffee/splenda before it came to boiling on the stove. This seemed to work very well but I'm not familiar enough with gelatin to know if that's recommended or not. Thanks very much for sharing.

Cashew Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
This casserole was warm and homey and I loved the flexibility of making it ahead. I plan to make this in the future, using just 1 cup milk (we had a little extra liquid in the finished pan) and will definitely give the veggies a quick saute before layering in the dish - the time overnight did nothing to take the raw bite out of the onions. Thanks very much for sharing.

Fried Corn with Smoked Sausage

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
We really loved this. I was skeptical veggies and lean meat (I did sub some chicken sausage I had on hand) with just a couple tbsp butter could be this satisfying (without say, bacon or a rich sauce). I ended up just seasoning with the seasoning salt for us. I think this would be well-suited to any precooked meat, say leftover grilled chicken or steak or chopped up rotisserie chicken. I will for sure make this quick, healthy, flexible meal again - thanks so much for sharing!

Easy Vodka Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
This was fantastic. I made just as directed and my fiancee kept telling me how much he liked it even days later. I suppose seasonings would be nice in here but as written I really appreciated how rich the sauce was and the little pop the vodka added. The perfect fast homeade sauce, thanks so much for sharing.

Country-Style Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
We really enjoyed this steak. I was a little skeptical of the 2hr bake, but the meat was melt-in-your-mouth perfect. Not having any cube steak, I sliced part of a rump roast into steaks and went from there. I did use a skillet and just set the steaks aside while making the gravy in the pan, which worked really well, but I will either decrease the overall olive oil to just a light coating in the skillet or pour some off, as this made the gravy very oily (which seems so obvious now, of course). Even with my extra-greasy change we thought this was awesome, great flavor just as written, thanks so much for sharing.

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
Mmm, very very good, just what The Man requested for his birthday treat. I too used jam but didn't melt it all the way liquid and it kind of sunk to the bottom of the crust: still delicious, but not quite the presentation I was hoping. I wish I could share with you all my tricks for perfect cheesecake, but I'm learning to accept and love my cracked brown cheesecakes. The texture and flavor was spot-on, thanks so much for sharing!

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
WOW these are fantastic. I was planning on making a double batch with my cookies this Christmas, tasted one, and immediately made a third batch to go along with them. I followed the recipe for the cookie exactly but didn't measure the jam; just put the (seedless) jam in a ziplock bag, snipped the end, and filled the holes I made with my pinkie fingertip to just as high as the rim. Not one leaked on me. Some cookies spread a little more than others, but all looked cute and tasted divine. I'm going to end up making these all though the year, thanks very much for sharing.

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
Oh my goodness. I made this with a turkey breast, halving the spice mixture but still using the full amount of butter. I didn't baste once, yet still had the most amazing, moist, well-flavored turkey I do believe I've ever eaten (though to be fair, the family usually just roasts them plain, maybe with stuffing in the cavity). It was superb. The gravy was also divine, though it did seem a tad salty. Looking back, with all the salt in the bullion I will be sure to use unsalted butter next time and hopefully that will cure it. The Man made the gravy, but I know he used water and cornstarch on the stove with good results. I agree with others, this is PERFECT for the first-time turkey chef. Thanks SO MUCH for sharing!

Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
This was fantastic for being so quick. I altered all sorts of stuff (whole bag of frozen broccoli, whole 12oz box rotini noodles, the mushroom soup can-full of cheese and half and half, precooked chicken I had on hand). I made these changes to have dinner on the table without shopping and dirtying as few dishes as possible in under 20 minutes and it STILL tasted good. If you were to use the amounts and ingredients called for I wouldn't even blink to serve this to unexpected company. Thanks Campbells for submitting!

Maple Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
This was such a perfect fall dessert, it has the taste of the season but none of the cookie-cutter "pie spice" flavorings most fall desserts have. I am docking a star because I feel 3/4c syrup and the 1/2c butter as written do make a very soggy (but still delicious!) product. I will start with 1/4c maple on the apples and toss until they are coated adding more if needed. As for the butter, I kept the amount but added 1c of walnuts to the topping, which we LOVED. Thanks so much for sharing!

Irish Car Bomb II

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2010
This is one of my all-time favorite shots, I've been drinking these for years. The ingredients are true and this ratio is pretty good - cheers!

Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
My MIL has been making this recipe for decades and we all love it. She does use a chocolate glaze for the top, but even with the frosting this would still be a solid five-stars. It's one of those recipes that shouldn't taste so good with such simple ingredients. Thanks for sharing.

Spiced Applesauce Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
Very delicious. Slices are great spread with peanut butter, as suggested in the description. I made as directed and thought it was perfectly sweet, and spiced enough for my tastes. Apples, more spices, toppings etc. probably are very delicious but this recipe as-written is really all you need. Thank you for sharing.

Strawberry Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
This was a great fresh coffee cake, I even prefer it over strawberry shortcake. The texture of the cake is wonderful, but I did think it was missing something. A bit of vanilla or almond extract, any little pop of flavoring will do the trick. Add those pecans, we thought they were so delicious toasted. I will use brown sugar or decrease the white sugar in the topping next time, the crunch with the pecans was great but the sweetness got in the way of the cake flavor.

Caramel Brownies III

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
Mmm, these were super good. I thought the recipe as written gave a great amount of caramel sauce. I did end up putting the chocolate chips on and am really glad I did, the little pop of semisweet chocolate amid the chewy caramel brownie-ness is nice. I reduced the butter to 1/2c and liked the recipe fine, as I tend to like lighter desserts. I would think the written amount is still good, but I can tell you it's amazing with just 1 stick. There is enough for the full 13x9 pan, this batter just takes some manipulating and won't pour into the corners of the pan like most other brownies. I will for sure make these again, thank you very much for sharing.

Cheese Corn Spoon Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
I really really loved this, it exceeded my expectations. Very moist and hearty. Of the corn bread mixes they had in the store the one without chemical additives was only 7oz. I didn't think this hurt the bread at all, though it was a little softer than it could have been. It's already been requested again, thanks very much for sharing.

Simple Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
These were soooooo good. I did quadruple the sauce with the same amount of apples. Even with that there was enough, not too much for our tastes: as written will probably just kind of glaze the meat. I used Gala apples which I had on hand, we liked it just fine. I will definitely make these again, thanks so much for sharing :)

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
This recipe exceeded my expectations, we absolutely loved it. The chicken was so tender, and the onions just melted into the sauce. I am very very timid with balsamic vinegar, so I used just over a quarter cup balsamic and added an extra can of tomatoes. For our tastes it was flavored enough, I'll attempt a full half cup next time with 2 cans to follow the recipe closer. The tomato chunks seem to soak up the vinegar flavor and you get a great burst of tomato-balsamic flavor in each piece. The herbs complemented everything nicely. I will definitely make again, maybe someday with up to the written amount of vinegar: thanks so very much for sharing!

Easy Microwave Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
Mmm, with the suggested changes of 3/4c sugar and some extra cocoa powder (I roughly measured, 2-3tbsp) this was a good cake, fantastic when you consider it came out of a microwave. The serving size is probably closer to 4. I thought it was especially dense and moist. Thanks very much for sharing, I'll be making this again.
