Mom's Favorite Baked Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2013
I just won my work's Pasta Cook Off (yesterday!) with this recipe!! Super easy to make (I was almost asleep on my feet by the time I made it) and doesn't require any weird/expensive/hard to find ingredients! I made a few changes - I forgot to buy onion so I made it without. Let the butter melt in the pan and just added flour, etc. I went to Target and in the milk/cheese aisle, I got the cheap blocks of Target brand cheese - 8 oz block of each as follows (NOTE: I doubled my recipe to 12 servings): Monterey Jack, Colby Jack, Sharp Cheddar, Provolone When it came time to add the cheese I thought 'there's no way I need all this!' but MAN am I glad I added all that was recommended! I didn't use dry mustard - I've never bought it in my life and wasn't about to spend $2.50+ on something I needed a tsp of, so I just squirted the right amount of mustard from a bottle in my fridge. And due to making this the night before and not wanting it to dry out - once everything was ready to bake, I covered the pan with tinfoil and then sealed it with the lid that came with the pan and put it in the fridge overnight. I got up early the next morning, took the covers off and popped that baby in the oven. Covered it again, with tinfoil, for about half the bake time. Finished by changing the setting to broil (I had added a bag of sharp cheddar cheese as topping) and let it darken. The pan sat in a warmer for a few hours at work before the party - but it was still cheesy and delicious! I won!

Breakfast Pies

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2011
This was a really good recipe for breakfast!! I used one can of Texas bisquits and a regular sized cupcake pan (12 cupcakes) I used about 5 eggs. I'm a vegetarian so I made half of the pies with just cheese/egg/onion/green pepper and the other half I added in precooked ham from this weeks dinner. When making the crust I used about 3/4 of each individual biscuit dough inside the can. I pressed it out in each cup, letting the sides go about halfway up the cup so that it wouldn't overexpand on me in the oven. I sprinkled in onion/ppr, used a 1/4 c measuring cup to pour egg into each pie and then sprinkled with shredded cheese. I put the oven a little less than 400 degrees and checked on the food every so often. I did have a little runover from the pies with ham in them, but i found that if I waited for the egg to harden up a bit, I could push it with a spantula back towards the pie. I had forgotten to spray the pan but it ended up not mattering because the pies just popped out of the tray. I swear my kitchen smelled like McDonalds but without the heart attack factor. Next time I will limit the amount of dough on the bottom of the pie because once cooked it took over about 3/4 of the pie.

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
OH MY GOSHHH!! These are so awesome--and easy!! Lately, I've been fixated on making cake balls (per Bakerella book Cake Pops) but they take hours to make. These truffles, in my opinion, taste just as good and are whole heck of a less hassle! I crushed (food processor) up one entire package of reduced fat Oreos and then bought 2 packages of Reeses PB Cups (the ones that come in packages of 6 and are usually on sale for $1). I crushed up the cups and oreos and mixed them together (saving some oreo crumbs for topping later) making pb cup oreo balls. I ended up not needing to refrigerate/freeze them because the balls had a good consistency. We have an old wire with the octagon base that we used to use to dye easter eggs, but now I use it to put the balls into chocolate bark and take back out again. Really useful. Anyways, I bought red chocolate bark and after all the dipping and everything, sprinkled with leftover oreo...they looked really good with a red/black thing going on! : ) Refrigerated them until time to serve---they're better cold!.

Country Green Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
This was delicious!! I'm so proud of myself for making this and making it right! Anyone looking for a quick and easy side dish---you found it. I did, however, cheat a lot. I used canned green beans, left out ham (vegetarian), bought a squeeze bottle of minced garlic--kinda just dumped it into the pan without measuring. PERFECT!! As suggested, I did saute the onions/butter and then garlic before adding the rest of the ingredients.

BBQ Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
I'm a verrrrry picky vegetarian and I was trying to find a main dish to cook for me and my parents that we could both enjoy. I'm so glad I found this! It's a salad with very few ingredients, so whatever I didn't think I'd like, I could change and it had meat so there was protein and was more filling. I made this as a salad, used 1 can of corn and almost an entire bag of romaine lettuce. I cut up the red onion but didn't use too much because I'm not a fan. I forgot to buy a pepper so that never made it in. I got the cheapest Lite Mayo Kroger had to offer and used the Jack Daniel's BBQ sauce we had at home. As for the chicken, I bought Morning Star's grilled chicken. For some reason I put them in the George Forman which made them kind of crunchy yet tough---so I would suggest being way smarter than me and just microwaving them. As suggested, I added store bought tortilla strips and those reallly made the salad. The only thing I didn't like was how overwhelming the bbq sauce was---it was good, but I lost some of the other flavors in it.

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
This was a super good dessert!! I read through a bunch of other people's reviews and had to change a few things. I bought a box of D.C. cake mix at Kroger on sale, Walmart had their pudding mix cheaper so I picked some up. Used reduced fat sour cream and used the entire bag of chocolate chips (instead of measuring out the 2 c) Some people said the chips weren't melting good unless you bought them as minis, so I put them in a bowl and softened them up in the microwave before adding it to the mixture. I didn't have a bunt pan, so I used a cake pan and dumped some cocoa on the bottom as suggested (tho I sprayed the pan first). I cooked it for exactly an hour at 325 degrees and it was perfect!! After it cooled I served it with fresh strawberries and whipped topping on the side. Everyone loved it!!!! Thanks!

Puppy Chow

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2007
My puppy chow is famous where I live because instead of adding just a half cup of peanut butter, I add sometimes 2 or 3 times what my recipe says and it makes all the difference! I never measure how much PB i use, I just make sure the chocolate mixture stays soupy and doesn't get to thick. MMMMMMM : )

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2007
This was a very good recipe! I JUST ate the first cookie out of the oven, and it was uh-may-zing. I did make a few changes, though, based on what previous people wrote and also for my own sake. I used 1 and a half cups of brown sugar, and half a cup of white. For chocolate chips, I used 1 and a half cups of choc. chips, and about 1/2 a cup of white chocolate chips. THEN, I'm a big peanut butter fan, so I added about 1/2-3/4 a cup of peanut butter. They ended up very very good---gooey, and not cake-y. I think next time, I wont add the white chocolate because it didn't melt quickly (it's probably old :( ) plus I'm not a big fan--just thought I'd try something new. And it took my cookies about 20+ minutes in the oven.
