Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
I love making things from scratch and showing my boys how easy it is. They loved this and couldn't wait for it to cool down. We are so used to the pudding from the box being cold- but we ate this one warm. Between me and my two boys my husband, who was at work, didn't get any.

English Trifle to Die For

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
My mom, who is English, has a recipe for Trifle that included a box custard. When I went to the grocery store and could no longer find the box custard I looked here for a good custard recipe. Let me tell you, the custard in this recipe is the best. My only complaint is that it didn't make enough! My mom agreed I could have easily doubled the amount of custard and it would have been that much better. Thanks for the recipe. I will stop looking for the box custard and will continue to make my own using this recipe!

Creamy Twice-Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
Very good and definately easy. I made 7 whole potatoes which resulted in 13 halves because the skin on one potato wasn't very nice. Because of that the remaining halves were nicely heaped. I followed some other suggestions of rubbing the outside of the potato skin with olive oil before baking. Also, I grated about one cup of cheddar cheese and added a little to the mixture and put the rest on top for the last 5 minutes. I omitted the paprika. These turned out really nicely and I'm looking forward to having the leftovers tonight for dinner again! My husband loved them.

Hurry-Up Ham Carbonara

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
This was such a fast and easy meal. My kids love butter on their pasta better than any red sauce so this was a big hit. I thought it would take me longer to cut up the onion and ham and to make the sauce so I didn't drop the pasta in the beginning. I ended up having to wait for the pasta to finish cooking. It was a little dry after I added the cheese (all I had was the stuff from the green cans) so I added a bit more broth to moisten it up. Thanks for the recipe.

Amy's Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
These were really good! My beef loving husband was very impressed and pleased that they were healthier. I only used about a teaspoon of red pepper flakes and it still added just a little kick but not too much for my two young boys. I will enjoy playing with this recipe and changing the crackers and spices to make different flavor mixes. Thanks Amy!

Classic Waffles

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2008
Very yummy. I compared it to another recipe I had that used one cup each of all-purpose and whole wheat flour and two tablespoons of sugar but used buttermilk, which I didn't have. So I followed this recipe but did use the cup each of all-purpose and whole wheat flour and added the extra sugar. I don't think that they needed the extra sugar, they were almost too sweet but I like the flavor and extra goodness the whole wheat flour brings. When making a large batch of waffles for my family I have found that laying them on a cooling rack and then moving them to a warm oven is the best. These were by far the very best right off the waffle maker when they were extra crispy. Thanks for the recipe!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
Very yummy. I followed the recipe with only one exception, I didn't have the chicken broth granules so I replaced all of the water with chicken broth. It turned out the perfect consistency. I was afraid that the 8 servings would be too much for my family of 4 (two small boys) but there is only enough left over for my husband's lunch tomorrow.

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
This was my first time making scalloped potatoes from scratch and I enjoyed the fresh light flavor of this recipe and the ease of them. In the future I might try changing the mayo with sour cream just because I don't care for mayo that much. Everyone at my Easter table really enjoyed them and there weren't much leftover even after doubling the recipe!

Sangria Ham

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
This really gave it good flavor. I didn't tent it with foil- it makes it easier to baste it. Thanks for the recipe I could see how this could easily be changed with other flavors. I really enjoyed the pineapple juice flavor though.

Three Cheese Manicotti II

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
This was really yummy! My kids and husband loved it. It is very much like lasagna but much cheesier. For our family it made way too much. Next time I will cut the recipe in half. I used only about 1 1/2 jars of spaghetti sauce as my son doesn't like red sauce that much and it was still plenty saucy and not dry.

Orange Roughy with Sherry and Herb Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
This was a good recipe. My husband and I didn't love it but we enjoyed the different flavors and a fresh way to cook the orange roughy to disguise the fishy taste it has!

Jiffy Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
Thank you for this recipe. I was looking for a way to use up some leftover beef and this worked out great. I did use two cans of soup as others recommended with a little water, and sliced the potatoes very thin. It only took about 45 minutes in the oven. My husband and fil loved it!

Stained Glass Window Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2008
My three year old and I loved making these cookies. I rolled the cookies and placed them on the pan and he helped me cut the cookies, unwrap the candies, and sprinkle them with colored sugar. I only gave it a four star because I used the changes previous reviewers mentioned like using 1 1/4 cups sugar, increasing the vanilla to 1 tsp. and decreasing the milk to 3 tbsps. The cookie part was very good. I was able to fit an entire jolly rancher, or 3 lifesavers, in my heart shaped cut out which was about 2 inches. I found the cooking spray on the foil was the best- I didn't have any problem with sticking. I only left them in the oven for 6 minutes. It was enough time for the candy to melt and just come to a boil (which helped it to spread out). I sprinkled colored sugar on the cookies before baking and sprinkled the candy as soon as the bubbles dissappeared after baking and it gave it a real glittery look. Everyone thought they looked and tasted great.

Corrigan's Minestrone

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Very good soup. I cut the recipe down based on what I had and it was plenty for my family of four. Thanks for the recipe.

Hawaiian Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
I made this for a Hawaiian themed scrapbooking workshop and all the ladies really enjoyed the fruity flavor. It is a really nice twist to the standard slaw.

Good Old Meat Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
My six year old had 3 servings! We all wanted more it was so good. I substituted the potato for 5-6 sliced mushrooms which I sauteed with the onion and 2 cloves garlic in olive oil . I used a bit more broth (one entire can) and it didn't make it too soupy. Also, I used fresh green beans cut into 1 inch pieces instead of the peas. This recipe is a keeper and so easy to change to what you have on hand. Next time I will add more vegetables and (maybe even) meat to really fill my pie dish. Also, I would love to try substituting some of the broth with Guiness beer (or any dark beer) to try to copy a pie I had in an English pub.

Flaky Food Processor Pie Crust

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
This was the easiest and best pie crust I have ever made! I added an extra tablespoon of water while in the processor and then wrapped it up and put it in the fridge. When I brought it out to roll it was definately too dry but I was still able to add a couple of extra tablespoons of ice cold water to make it just perfect. I thought I was going to overwork it but it was still really flaky and light.
