Creamy Chicken Rice Soup
Rating: Unrated
Kris's rating

This was delicious! The lemon juice and white wine really make the flavor. I used lemon juice from concentrate and it worked great. I only make soup in huge amounts for leftovers, so I left the rice out of the soup and poured the soup over rice. I also doubled the recipe and used 1/2 of the chicken called for. We like chicken shredded rather than cubed. It worked great and this is a definite keeper! I can only give 4 stars since I did adjust the recipe.

I'm not a big custard fan, but my family loved it. The egg white on the crust really kept it from getting soggy. I'll try that on my other custard-type pies too.

Very lemony and moist - I'm still looking for a lemon cake recipe completely from scratch.

I was worried about that high temp, but it worked beautifully! This pie is amazing! I've made 3 pies so far; using different types of pears with different ripeness, from rock hard to very soft. They all turned out great, but the ripe pears are definitely the best. If you bake the pie a bit longer, maybe 5-10 minutes for the hard pears with foil over the top, it turns out really nice.

These are BIG and fluffy and delicious! We used butter once, then shortening and they both turned out great.

Baked Cream Corn

The flavor was good, but it seemed very uncooked. I even added 6 Tbs. flour like suggested, and baked for 1 hour til nice and browned on top, but it was too gooey for my taste. I might tweak it some more by adding 1/2 c. flour and some corn meal. Maybe less butter too.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Yum! I added a can of rinsed black beans and sprinkled cheddar on top and it was delicious! Not too spicy - my DH added hot sauce to his liking. My 2 year old liked it too. Next time I'll cut my tortillas thinner and probably double the amount.

Lemon Chewy Crisps

The name says it all. They are good hot out of the oven, or out of the fridge. My DH likes soft cookies, so I tried to bake them less, but it didn't work - they looked done until they cooled, but they were still doughy. I just used the zest and juice of one large lemon, and they were delicious. Not the lemony zip from a lemon bar, but nice subtle, refreshing lemon flavor.

This was really yummy, but it neede more veggies - maybe green beans or broccoli. The cheese taste is very mellow so if you are looking for something super cheesy, this ain't it. Definitely making it again.

Greatly enjoyed it - nice change from banana bread.

Yes to chocolately, yes to quick - no to texture, no to flavor. I prefer the bake in the oven cookies. I'd rather clean a cookie sheet than a pot too.

Very versatile. We used all honey, doubled the peanut butter, and added 1/2 oz. of baker's chocolate. We added the peanut butter mixture to the cereals and mixed, then rolled it into balls. We call them meatball cookies, which the kids really like.
