Margarita Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
Great, easy, though I made some changes. Here is what I did: 1 box of yellow cake mix, 1 sm pack of vanilla pudding, 1/2c applesauce (replaced oil), 1/4c margarita mix, 1/4c tequila, 2T each of Triple Sec and Lime juice. Mix and cook per cake mix instructions (350 for ~40 min). Here is the big improvement -- the glaze is 1c regular sugar, 1/4c butter, 1/4c margarita mix, 1/2c tequila, splash of water, boiled for 5 min and then slowly drizzled over the cake once it is cool. Prick the entire top of the cake with a toothpick and over an hour add spoonfuls of the glaze. Slow is key for it to saturate the cake -- YUM! I dusted it with powdered sugar to pretty it up since the glaze is clear.

Mexican Sour Cream Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
With some changes it was great. Here is what I did: Diced 1/2 onion, 1 bell pepper, combined with one can blk beans and 2c frozen corn, and heated in skillet with oil, garlic and 1T cumin, 1T cayenne, 2T paprika. I mixed the heated combo with rice cooked in chicken broth, 2 sm cans green chilis, tex mex cheese, 1 sm container reduced fat sour cream, and 3 lrg cans of chicken. Topped with a bit of the cheese, baked at 350 for 30 minutes and garnished with green onion. Served with salsa and quacamole -- everyone loved adding to the flavors to make it their own. Made this with the Margarita cake (though I made changes there too). Great Tex Mex nite with stuff I usually already have on hand.

Caramel Apple Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
Awesome and Easy Instead of mixing, make the cream cheese and sugar your base layer, add caramel on top without mixing and then top with crushed Skor bar -- makes for great presentation :)

Creamed Spinach

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
I used fresh spinach and simplified steps. I made the roux in a dutch oven, adding garlic early. Then I mixed in chopped fresh spinach, covered the pot, and removed from heat. Stirred in cheese and dusted with nutmeg and pepper. -- Since I used fresh spinach and removed it from the heat it maintained more of its shape and character, but you can let it cook down more if you prefer.

Karen A's Chocolate Dump Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
Good staple cake to have in your pantry -- also the leftovers froze wonderfully, holding its moist texture. I used instant jello without any issues and added ~2 Tbs vanilla extract as well as ~4 Tbs Bailey's liquor to address other's comments of blandness. I would add even a bit more of each next time. I also mixed the chocolate chips into the batter, reserving a just a handful for the top. No need to frost, just serve warm with ice cream.

Bar Cookies from Cake Mix

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
Super yummy with minimal effort. I made a double batch with 1 white cake, 1 yellow cake and a large package of instant vanilla jello (since I was out of the super moist cake mixes). I followed other's comments and increased the water and egg (for the double batch with the added jello I used 5 eggs and 5 Tbs water). I also cooked in a glass pyrex, so I increased the cooking time to when a toothpick came out clean, ~45 minutes.

Jicama Appetizer

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
Great for adding fiber to your diet. In many areas of Central and Southern Mexico you'll find this as a traditional restaurant mainstay, served at the table like the bread basket when you first sit down.
