Lemon-Marmalade Cookie Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2014
This cookie is a very delicious cookie, and I find myself wanting to lick out the filling and just eat the cookie by itself. The lemon marmalade I had was kind of bitter, so I made some using that, orange marmalade (better), and Trader Joe's Salted Caramel Sauce. I think that something with dark chocolate or semisweet would even be better! When I put the two cookies together, I thought they were a little thick, so next time I'd make them a little thinner than 1/4". I used my linzer cookie cutter, so rather than 6 cookies, I ended up with 13 cookies because they are smaller (I would have had 14 except I did a little taste testing in there). I also cooked them about 15 minutes at 325. I did as the first reviewer suggested to grind the nuts first using my Cuisinart Smartstick. I forgot to sprinkle them with powdered sugar, so next time I'll do that. And there will be a next time! Thank you for a wonderful little cookie, Laria Tabul.

Dijon Grilled Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
The mustard I used on this was from a foursome I got from Trader Joe's--Blackcurrant Mustard. I read one review that said these chops had no taste, so I decided that a sweeter mustard might work better. You can see the seeds in the mustard on the photo I took, so maybe a whole grain mustard works best. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as written. We enjoyed these pork chops. We rate it a 4 1/2! I've saved some of the reserved sauce for another recipe--maybe chicken. Thanks, Laura! This helped us start in the new year!

Gorgonzola Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
I used some pasta that I got from HomeGoods---La Piana's Mezzaluna with Gorgonzola filling. I followed the recipe (and video) as written. How yummy! Thanks once again, Chef! This was really good!

Peppermint Rice Crispies Squares

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
When asked how this recipe compares to just the regular Rice Krispies bars, my granddaughters declared that these are the best! I do think that if left to their own devices that they would have finished off the whole pan by themselves. I cut mine into heart-shaped pieces with a cookie cutter, and they started out just wanting the remnants! So they learned a new word at the same time they more than satisfied their sweet teeth! Thanks, CLField!

Honey Nut Dipped Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2013
I cut the recipe in half but otherwise followed the directions as written with one exception---I didn't marinate the chicken as long as required. And for me, that might have been my downfall because I felt that it needed a little more flavor. Hubby didn't agree with me at all! He loved it! I did think the amount of marinade was running a little short, so don't be afraid to add more of it! I liked the idea of the corn flakes and walnuts. I will make this again, using the full marinating time. Thanks, patti! We had enough left over for dinner the second night, too!

Cranberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2013
This recipe follows a pretty typical formula for salad dressings, so you could use this subbing almost any oil or vinegar. I very much enjoyed this combination! I think next time I have this (tonight, as a matter of fact), I'll also add some whole cranberries to my salad to go along with the chopped ones. Thank you very much, lisa weston, and I'm sure others will enjoy this, too!

Salami, Cream Cheese, and Pepperoncini Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2013
What a great way to use up a little cream cheese! We happened to have salami in the house this week, and we always have pepperoncini on hand, so then I remembered this little appy! It made us very happy! Thank you, Mrs Bane!

Popovers

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
I decided to use this recipe which is close to the one I've made over the years. I wanted to see how it was to add butter to the batter and to the popover cups, too. Well, they were a huge hit! They turned out perfectly. The one thing I did that is not written into these instructions is to let the batter sit at room temperature for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. After turning down the heat, they didn't require the whole time of baking---only about ten minutes more. I would make these again! Thanks, J Miller!

Brown Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2013
I'm so very very glad that I waited to write my review. In fact, you'll probably think I'm totally nuts when I tell you my thoughts. I made these, waited until the next day to taste them because of what the submitter said about the taste getting stronger the next day. I didn't think they really tasted at all. I stuck them away in a cupboard and promptly forgot them. I found them this morning--eleven days later! And guess what?!? I LOVE them! Yes, they are getting old, but the edges are wonderfully crunchy, and the middle is still just creamy soft. And the taste is very pronounced. Yummy with my coffee this morning! Now I'll put them in my freezer to preserve them for the future coffees! Thanks, Noelle!

Toasted Pecan Meltaways

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2013
I made these as stated in the recipe, and they turned out great! One thing I would say is that if you use salted butter, you can cut the salt and add it in a little at a time as you think it needs. Unsalted needs the whole amount (what there is of it). These are delicious! Thank you so much, Celeste, for adding another cookie to my repertoire!

Peanut Butter Crispies I

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2013
Since I love all the ingredients in this recipe, this was a no-brainer for me to try! I made only a fourth of a batch just in case, but I know I'll have to make more for sweet treats for the little ones in my life (and me, too)! I had no problem removing these from a glass baking dish that I used. I ran out of creamy peanut butter and so there's a mixture of crunchy and creamy in my photo, but I don't think it matters which you use. I also pressed the pieces together upon removing to make them stick together better. You'll notice that many reviewers used different cereals, and I can't think of a sweeter way to use up the last of any box of cereal! Thanks, Cathie!

Parmesan Cream

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
I made this to go over some chicken breasts from Costco that I sautéed in olive oil, butter, and some Hawaiian seasoning I received as a gift. I did make only half a recipe because there are just the two of us, and it was hard to use my immersion blender in such a small amount. I was able to tilt my pan and get it mostly blended. It was yummy and filling. I would definitely make this again!

Mama Palomba's Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
Although I have not yet made this, I DID eat it---several servings of it to be exact! Baking Nana featured this at an AR Peeps Christmas get-together. This is something that I WILL be making in the next couple of weeks for something quick to pull from my freezer when things get hectic! I can honestly rate this a 5 Star! Thank you so much, LindaT.

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2013
Delicious! I have made this same type of recipe but mixing it on stovetop. This is a much superior method. I used walnuts this time, but I'm sure any nut would be great prepared this way. Thanks, Carolyn!

Debbie's Special Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2013
I left the cinnamon stick out of this recipe but otherwise followed the directions. I really liked the addition of prunes to this one! This will be one of two recipes that I'll put on my Thanksgiving table! Thanks, Swest!

Easy Cranberry Raspberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2013
I was looking around for a new cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving Day, and I made a smaller version of this one. This one is good and definitely easy. I think this will take a backseat to another one that I've tried, but this will definitely be used on those delicious sandwiches that we'll enjoy after Thanksgiving! Thanks, DebAnn!

Easy Cranberry Orange Relish

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2013
This is an interesting version of cranberry sauce/relish, something new for me. I made a smaller version and so added just a pinch of cinnamon. I think this will be great to put on sandwiches for turkey leftovers. This is not something I would put on my plate on Thanksgiving Day. But I will enjoy this later! Thanks, TXGIRLSX3!

Buttermilk Ranch

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2013
This is EXCELLENT! This goes to the top of my list. How could another photo take the place of Sherri's? Hubby LOVED it! Thanks so much. This will go down as an excellent choice of dressings.

Oven Roasted Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
Very nice change from the usual roasted potatoes! I would suggest melting the exact amount of coconut oil but adding it to the potatoes a little at a time because I did think there was maybe just a little too much there (hubby didn't). I also would go a little short on the salt for the same reason (hubby didn't think so). I did a small batch of these because it is just the two of us. I ran out of the one kind of onion, so I used a combo of sweet and red onion and shallots. I think I preferred the shallots, actually. And I'm not sure why pepper wasn't used, but that's easily rectified. I'm giving this the whole 5 star rating in spite of what I've written because I know that these will be made a number of times in this kitchen! Thanks so much, Joni!

Pizza Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2013
Well, Rhoda, this certainly took care of our pizza craving AND our comfort food craving! Yum! I thought since you used wheat rigatoni pasta that it would be OK for me to use my Trader Joe's pasta. I also used TJ's Traditional Marinara Sauce. Since this was just for the two of us, I pared down the recipe for 2 servings. But then I goofed and put all the required sauce on the bottom with the uncooked pasta. That meant that I needed to add more for the top layer. But no problem! It all worked out well. Delicious! Not free of calories, but certainly free of required work to fix dinner! Thanks for making us happy campers!
