Chicken Stuffed Shells

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
These tasted good, but seemed to be missing something - cheese, maybe? Still, they were very rich and filling. They weren't all that pretty to look at. I served them with sauteed green beans.

Chocolate Ribbon Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
I wanted a chocolate dessert to round out the Easter Sunday menu and I had all the ingredients on hand to make this pie. It was incredibly quick and easy to throw together and was delicious. I'd definitely make this one again. Thanks for a great no-bake recipe!

Wiener Dog Challah

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
This recipe is missing a key ingredient present in every other Challah recipe I've ever made or seen- eggs. By its very definition, Challah is a "traditional Jewish egg bread". The recipe is also lacking enough salt. I would suggest adding 1/2 teaspoon more. Definitely add the last three cups of flour 1/2 cup at a time. I should have stopped at 5 cups of flour, but ended up adding a little extra warm water when my dough became too stiff at 5 1/2 cups. After kneading, this dough was a dream to work with. If I make this again, I would replace some of the water with eggs and add more salt. (The addition of eggs might make extra salt unnecessary.) Also, the directions for forming the loaves are very vague. It would help to know about how long the formed loaves should be before baking. I made one loaf in the "weiner dog style" and divided the other into 3 ropes and braided for a more traditional looking Challah.

Tortellini Carbonara

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
This isn't really carbonara. I'm not basing my star rating on that fact, but please be aware that carbonara contains beaten egg tossed with hot pasta to lightly cook the egg. This isn't that dish. My rating is based on the following facts: 1. There is way too much sauce for this recipe. 2. The recipe desperately needs more flavor. I added extra cheese and grated garlic. 3. As soon as the sauce started to bubble, it started to break. The resulting texture was not great. My husband picked out and ate just the tortellini. The 1/2 inch chunks of ham seemed strange to us as well. I liked the idea of a tortellini carbonara, but this isn't really what I had in mind.

Chicken Salad Fit for a Dragon

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
This is tasty, not as spicy as I expected it to be. The pepper adds a nice kick, but isnt overpowering. Pine nuts are about $10 for a very small container in my area. I used sliced almonds since I had them on hand. Thanks for a nice recipe!

Quick Chick

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
This was good and simple enough. I used fresh mushrooms and a little bit of chicken broth to replace the mushroom liquid. The finished dish isn’t the prettiest to look at. It would benefit from some added color. If I make this again, I would probably add some red and green peppers.

Creamy Parmesan Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
These were okay, but not as amazing as I expected them to be. The recipe doesn’t state whether to slice the brussels sprouts thick or thin. I guess mine were too thick, because they took forever to soften. The finished product was a little on the bitter side. My husband didn’t care for this side dish.

Dilly Biscuit Squares

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
These are really good. There isn't really much dill flavor from the butter on top, but the cheese makes these really stand out. This may be nit-picky, but they're rectangles, not squares. If you want squares, either cut nine or twelve.

Hot Chicken Salad IV

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
This was really good! I used diced red pepper since I didn’t have pimentos. My husband hates mayonnaise (so he thinks), but didn’t see it go into this dish. He went back for seconds! I served this on toasted French bread. Delicious!

Tough Buck Barbecue

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
I used this recipe to do a roast as suggested. I cooked it a good bit longer than the suggested two hours – cooking it until the meat fell apart. I smothered the meat with the sauce and baked at 350 for an hour (only because I was short on time at that point and my venison was so tender already.) Very tasty – I will be making this again!

Grandma's Apple Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
This is tasty, but has a slightly strange texture and is a bit crumbly. A word of advice – I followed the directions and sifted the dry ingredients. DO NOT sift the rye flour. My sifter is now useless. Particles from the rye flour became trapped between the two screens and will not come out.

Fiance's Favorite Savory Green Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
These were very tasty, but the breadcrumbs were a little strange to us. I may make this again, but will probably skip the breadcrumbs the next time.

City Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
This recipe has promise, but needs a little help. First, I’d cut back on the salt. The other difficulty I had was that the breading was pretty dark by the time the chicken legs had cooked through. I would use the suggestion of first boiling the chicken legs to avoid burning the coating in the future. I used some of the breading on chicken tenders and it worked very well.

Chocolate French Toast

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
This was good and quick enough to throw together. I had a little difficulty getting my cocoa powder to incorporate with the other ingredients. I’d suggest mixing the dry ingredients with just the eggs first and then adding the milk to make this incorporation easier. This was delicious served with cherry pie filling and powdered sugar.

Half Moons II

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
These were okay, but somehow were just too sweet. I did have to mix the dough by hand as the very end. I also had to squeeze the dough tightly before forming the crescents. I had to let the cookies cool slightly before rolling in the sugar since they were just too hot to handle. Update: I have lowered my rating from 4 to 3 stars. After one day these cookies are nearly tasteless. They just need something for additional flavor, but I'm not quite sure what. Possibly using almond extract instead of vanilla would help.

Taco Chip Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
This recipe has a major error that dooms the cook to failure. If you rinse and dry your chicken wings, nothing will stick to them. I made an egg wash with one beaten egg and some water, rolled each wing in it, and then rolled it in the chip mixture. I baked these the full 40 minutes, but the result was chewy wings with rubbery skin. They really needed to bake longer. They were average-sized wings, not overly large. I probably won't make them again as I really prefer my wings with crispy skin.

Sunday Lunch Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
This was okay, but it definitely needs some tweaking to be really good. First, "mixed spice" is not readily available in the US, so I used Mrs. Dash original flavor. I had to add extra bullion since there was very little flavor without it. My husband and I both tasted the soup before adding the cream and liked it. After the addition of the cream, my husband didn't care for this and did not eat his soup. This may work better if you plan on pureeing the soup, but I really think it needs a thickener if it isn't pureed. Without it, it's a little on the watery side. The addition of the cream actually detracted from the overall flavor. If I could, I would give the recipe 3.5 stars.
