Country Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2014
My husband and I both thought this turned out just OK. We both agreed that we would have rather made the gravy separately and poured it on top of the finished casserole. I omitted the sausage because I did not have any and used frozen shredded potatoes mixed with green onion, salt, and pepper as the base. I served it with some turkey bacon on the side. I cut the bread into bigger strips instead of cubes, next time I will concentrate the bread around the edges of the casserole where it browned/toasted up nicely. The bread in the middle of the casserole was a little soggy. Overall it was very easy to make and you can use what you have on hand.

Seven Layer Tortilla Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2014
This is one of those miracle recipes that is reasonably healthy, tastes great, budget friendly, easy to make, and easy to customize. Definitely a go to on those nights when you are just too tired to cook. I had some left over fresh made salsa from taco take-out the night before so I used that, I put the green salsa in the pintos and the red salsa in the black beans. You can find salsa verde (green salsa) at the store and it is made with tomatillos, onion, garlic, and jalapeno. It has a tart/tangy kick that paired well with the roasted flavor of the traditional red salsa. I also layered some corn in there for added flavor and vegetables. I only needed 3 tortillas to do my layering as I have a shallow pie dish and it came out perfect. I served it with a frozen vegetable mix (broccoli, carrot, squash, and cauliflower) which I sauteed in olive oil, butter, and garlic about half way through the bake time. Would pair equally well with calabacitas: sauteed onion, squash, and corn (frozen is fine, green chiles optional). If you like you can substitute whole wheat tortillas too! Garnished mine with sour cream, chopped green onions, and chopped fresh cilantro. Again a must try recipe and one to keep in your arsenal for those hectic tired evenings.

Super Easy Doughnuts

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
Great recipe, easy and uses minimal ingredients. The consistency is like a cake style doughnut. They are quick to make and fry up fast. I made them for my husbands birthday breakfast and he loved them. No waiting around for the dough to rise etc because there is no yeast. The updated ingredient amounts were perfect, and I used 6 TBL milk (3/8 c) and it came out great. Make sure to flour your surface and rolling pin well, the dough will seem sticky when first mixed but quickly comes together as you roll it out (assuming you floured your surface). I will definitely use this recipe again, what is more impressive than homemade doughnuts! Thanks, happy cooking!

Thai Fried Bananas

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
I made these for a multicultural potluck at school. To make the recipe easier and cut down on costs i used instant pancake mix, substituting coconut milk for the water. I added the shredded coconut and a little lime zest to the prepared pancake mix, dipped the banana slices in the batter and fried. They came out wonderful. I served them with honey and lime wedges.

Banana Split Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2008
I made this dessert for a work potluck that I was required to attend and everyone loved it. I used a premade nilla wafer crust, 2 pkg cream cheese (as one review suggested), sliced pineapple that I cut up into chunks (I do not like crushed pineapples), magic shell chocolate topping (placed on top of the pineapples before the whipped cream), and I sprinkled the top with sliced almonds and chopped pecans. I mixed the banana slices with the cream cheese instead of layering them on top. The filling was creamy and thick and everything tasted really good. This dessert was very easy to prepare (I made mine two days ahead of time and put in the freezer) just be careful if using a premade crust they are very fragile.

Scrambled Egg Brunch Bread

Reviewed: May 28, 2008
I made this recipe for a mothers day brunch that I attended. Everyone LOVED it, and wanted a copy of the recipe. I omitted the red pepper and had the deli cut the ham as thick as possible. I also "fried" the ham in a saucepan with cooking spray before assembling. I used reduced fat crescent rolls and egg beaters and no one knew the difference. To ease the preparation I assembled the bread on parchment and lightly sprayed my knife with cooking spray before cutting the strips. This recipe was easy, looks really pretty, and is great for parties or brunches. Thanks for the great recipe.

Bubba's Jambalaya

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
Awesome recipe! My first time making jambalaya and it came out great, picky boyfriend loved it. He likes spicy dishes so I added some crushed red pepper flakes, cayenne, and some Tabasco. I only used chicken and sausage and the taste was wonderful. Great dish for a potluck, very easy.

Uncooked Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2007
Awesome recipe. Great for potlucks or anytime a quick dessert is in need. Not quite the classic custard style banana pudding I was looking for, but pleasantly surprised. Next time I will reduce the whipped topping. I am also going to try this as a pie filling. Thanks for the great recipe!

Easy Plain Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
Despite the mixed reviews I decided to try out this recipe. I tweaked it a bit and ended up with a chocolate chip cake/bread loaf. I did 1/2 cup melted butter, 1/2 cup oil, 2 1/2 cups flour, 4 eggs, sugar, and some vanilla. I mixed it all in my stand mixer and added milk to reach a cake batter texture. I also folded in chocolate chips. I baked it in a loaf pan. It came out dense and the cake part was a little bland. All in all it was OK, a little dry. Maybe good if served with pudding, custard, or fruit sauce. Would only make again if in a really tight pinch.

Quick Pour Fondant Icing

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2007
This was my first attempt at making petits fours and unfortunatly it did not work out so well. I followed this recipe almost exact, with the exception of increasing the temp. as one review suggested. The icing was very transparent and did not cover my cakes evenly :o( Still on the search for the perfect pourable icing.

Granny's Ice Cream

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2007
Very good recipe. Easy to make and uses simple ingredients. I made my first batch strawberry and substituted strawberry yogurt for the sour cream and added fresh strawberries. My only complaint was I left the strawberries cut into big chunks, when they froze it was like having ice cubes in my ice cream. Next time I will cut them smaller or puree. This ice cream has a good flavor, but is not as creamy as other ice creams made with cream. I stirred it every 30 min as the recipe suggested and it was a tad bit icy.
