Breakfast Kolaches

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2011
10 Star recipe! I grew up in Texas and can attest that this is a GREAT kolache recipe. I can't wait to make the dough again and just make into rolls as it is the best "roll" recipe I have found. I used Johnsonville Cheddar Sausages, cut in half, and used 1/2 in each roll. I made the rolls into oblong pieces rather than balls. I've never had hashbrowns in a kolache so I didn't even think of putting them in. Also, I made only 12 rolls instead of 18. Perfect!

Addictive Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
Love, love, LOVE these! I used some frozen pumpkin I had in my freezer from last fall. (I actually roast fresh pumpkin when in season, puree it and then freeze it in 2 cup portions) I also used Craisins instead of raisins and didn't use the applesauce, but used about 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Not sure the oil was necessary and probably won't do it next time. All the above adjustments were made based on 12 servings, not 36 (1/3 of the recipe)! When I make muffins I freeze them and then just pop one in the microwave for about 30 seconds when I'm hungry for a muffin! Will be making these again when my freezer supply runs out. :)

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
Good casserole. I didn't have any butter round crackers so I used Club crackers. I'm SURE it would be better with the Ritz (aka buttery round crackers), but we still enjoyed it.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
5 Star even using frozen bread dough! Yes, I used Rhodes frozen bread dough, let it thaw then rolled it out and proceeded from there. Oops, I didn't read the directions and I cut the softened butter into the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture. Made it a little hard to "spread", but it worked! As I don't measure much when I cook, I probably used 6 oz of cream cheese, 5 T butter and about 2 cups powdered sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla. YUMMY!! The frosting was perfect (I actually had a little bit left over, but will pile it on top before the rest of these go into the freezer). I can't imagine these being any better so I doubt I will go to the trouble of making the dough. Try the frozen bread dough, you won't be disappointed! The filling was exactly what I was looking for...lots of ooey-gooey cinnamony goodness. :) Thanks for the recipe! Edit..I forgot to mention I made these at night, popped into the refrigerator, took them out when I got up the next morning, let them sit for about an hour then baked. Worked perfect and will be the recipe I go to for our Christmas morning cinnamon rolls!

Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
We enjoyed this, but were not over joyed. I sauteed fresh mushrooms (didn't have canned) and used one can cream of brocolli and one can cream of mushroom as that is what I had on hand. Not sure if the cream of chicken would have made that much of a difference? After reading some of the other reviews, I did up the lemon juice to about 2 tsp. Didn't add the butter since I had sauteed the mushrooms in a butter/olive oil mixture and figured the cheese would add enough "oil". Per others suggestions I did crumble Ritz crackers on top and am glad I did as it added a bit of a crunch. I didn't use the water chestnuts (even though I love them!) because our granddaughter was here and I didn't think she would eat them! I used about 3/4 cup mayo and about 3/4 cup light sour cream and added a good dash of garlic powder. I'm pretty sure this tasted very similar to the original recipe as I didn't make drastic changes. Maybe I am just not a big fan of Chicken Divan? After all, this was my first time making it as well as eating it! Don't think I would make again, but only because I am not a big fan. If you like CD, I'm confident this would be a good recipe! Thanks...

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
I've been doing this for years. I learned it from the cook at a dude ranch we used to go to. Great way to cook for a crowd. One other thing I do is this...I cook two or three pounds of bacon (not all at the same time, but one sheet right after another) so I only have to "smell" up my house once in a while. I freeze the cooked bacon and then just take out what we need and zap it in the microwave for a few seconds. I've also done this for years and it works whether you are stove top, microwave or oven cooking your bacon!

Grandmother's Pound Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
Good cake, but NOT a pound cake! It was easy and a good alternative for recipes with fruit and whipped cream over cake (shortcake type recipes), but lacks the true pound cake texture. I probably won't make this again. Sorry.

Norwegian Pancakes - Pannekaken

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
Sorry, we didn't care for these at all. Very bland. We tried them with bacon, syrup, jam, peanut butter and powdered sugar, non of which seemed to help. (We tried each of these toppings separately, not together!)

Hot Fudge Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2011
So easy and soooooo good! I used lowfat condensed milk and 4ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips because that was all I had, and it worked perfect. Don't change a thing!!!

Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
These cookies are excellent! Not too much of a peanutty taste, but enough to make them chewy and wonderful. I only had about 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips so I used milk chocolate chips to make up the difference. Though they were great with chocolate chips, I can't wait to try them with the semi sweet chocolate chunks! I think next time I will add chopped, roasted pecans. With that, I think they will rival the Doubletree Hotel's cookies!

Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
Excellent! I did use chicken stock in place of water and base and used spinach instead of kale as I had spinach that needed to be used. Also used new potatoes instead of regular potatoes andI used 3 mild and 2 hot Italian sausages as that is what I had on hand and added a little bit of red pepper flakes. This sounds like a lot of changes, but it really wasn't, it was only substitutes! Oh, and I used a full cup of cream. This soup was even great as left overs! Can't wait to make this again. Thanks for the recipe...

Cream Cheese Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2011
Years ago I used to make a similar recipe, but with blueberry pie filling and "Dream Whip" instead of whipping cream. Homemade is much better! Definitely use a shortbread/graham cracker/cookie type crust and for a little something different, slice bananas onto crust before filling with the cream cheese mixture. Bananas, blueberries and cream cheese....YUMMY!!!

Black-Eyed Pea Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
Excellent!!! I didn't have pork sausage so I ground some pork sirloin with my Kitchen Aid mixer and used that. Since it wasn't seasoned as sausage I added about 1/2 teaspoon sage and extra garlic salt. That's the only change I made and this stuff is wonderful! I'm serving with cornbread and can't wait until time to eat! Try this, it is excellent!!! edited...Dinner is over and we enjoyed every bite! I'm almost afraid to try it with the sausage since the ground pork was so good! I will, however, try the sausage next time and report back. :)

Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
Love, love, love this bread! I used Leinenkugel Honey Weiss for the beer and OMGoodness, this was divine. Also, I melted about 1/4 C butter and poured over the top when it came out of the oven. Can't wait for breakfast in the morning when I will toast this and eat it with sausage. Yummmm

Sausage Pasta

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
We enjoyed this, but I did have to add salt. I used "hot" Italian Sausage, but it still seemed to need an extra kick. Salt helped, but next time I may add Rotel instead of regular canned tomatoes (I actually used Fire Roasted Tomatoes this time). Added extra parmesan to the plated servings and served along with a caesar salad. I'll definitely make again with a couple changes.

Easy Apple Crisp

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
Very good! I used 4 granny smith and 3 gala apples which I tossed in lemon water. Used sugar free cake mix, sugar substitute (WheyLow Gold), but only used 3/4 cup, and served it with NSA vanilla ice cream!

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2011
I used 3 hot and 2 mild Italian Sausage links with casings removed. Browned them in dutch oven sprayed with Pam and then cut them with spatula into chunks. Added about 1 cup chopped onion and 3 cloves minced garlic. Cooked this for a couple minutes and then added 2 cans Italian stewed tomatoes, the carrots and 4 cups chicken broth. I added about 3 teaspoons beef base (I didn't have any beef broth) and 3 diced red potatoes. Cooked this for about 20 minutes then added the zucchini and beans. Cooked another 20 minutes or so and then added thawed frozen spinach and about 1/2 cup orzo. Cooked another 20 minutes. Turned heat off and let it sit for about an hour before eating. TO DIE FOR GOOD!!!!!!!!! Sorry about the changes, but I just couldn't resist adding onion! The other small changes made for a delicious soup. I'm sure it is good without these changes, but I will make it my way from now on as it was so good. Thanks for the recipe!

Winter Blossom's Often Requested Ham Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
Excellent! I had a left over smoked ham with bone which I sliced as much meat as I could off. It was only about 1/3 lb so I adjusted the other ingredients accordingly. Used Penzey's toasted, dried onion which made this fabulous! If you have never used Penzey's spices you should try them! Anyway, I didn't have brown mustard so I used Dijon and I used Spenda sweetened relish as that is all I had. Honestly, I don't think I would change anything when I make this again. I have no doubt it is good exactly as written, but I it sure is good with my necessary substitutions. Thanks for the recipe!
