Poblano Chile Enchiladas a la Gringa

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2012
This is fabulous! I don't like corn tortillas, so I used flour. I put cilantro in the sauce as well like others had suggested. I dunked both sides in the sauce and then put chicken and mozz and monterray cheese in the middle. I then wrapped it up and poured the rest of the sauce over the top and baked it. I found that 350 for 15 minutes wasn't long enough so I increased it to 400 until it the cheese was bubbling. This is SUPER delicious especially when PIPING hot! I will be making this again! YUM!!!

Apple Snack Squares

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2012
Absolutely fabulous. I decreased the sugar like others did and accidentally put in an extra cup of apples. It was still delicious! It is moist and delicious and the pan is almost gone in the first four hours! Will definitely be making this again!

BREAKSTONE'S Chocolate Chunk-Cinnamon Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
This is one of THE best recipes out there! YUM! I have been very upset when I make this because I cannot stop eating it! It doesn't last more than a day in my house.

Cheesy Potato and Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
This is a very good recipe, but my husband kept commenting that it was missing something. I have to agree with him. I think it would taste out of this world with something like ham or chicken. I threw some dumplings on top and used cheddar instead of Velveeta. It is VERY good and very hearty.

Deep Chocolate Raspberry Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
I made this cake as is but exchanged the frosting for a buttercream frosting instead. My husband says that I should have just used the called for frosting because it was just too much with what I made. I was following another reviewer's suggestion. With how I did it, I just wasn't impressed with it. It was alright, but nothing fantastic. Instead of using jam, I reserved the raspberry juice from when it was thawed and added some corn starch and heated it up. The raspberries really made a nice contrast. People just complained that it was too chocolatey. I have to agree. Even just eating the cake (not the frosting) it is very chocolatey and rich. This cake MUST be eaten in very small pieces. I won't make this one again because there are so many recipes out there that are better. If you do make it, use the frosting that is given...don't substitute and be ready for a chocolate overload!

Tangy Glazed Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
Not too shabby. I used apricot jelly because I didn't realize that I didn't have apple jelly until it was too late. It was pretty tasty. I made whole wheat egg noodles to compliment it, but I think it would have tasted better with couscous or rice. The recipe? EASY and good! :-)

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
This recipe is by far THE best recipe out there for bread. I use my Kitchenaid mixer on it but have also made this with very young family members to let them do karate chops and punches into the dough. I usually end up making it into cinnamon rolls where I roll it out and spread butter on it, coat it with brown sugar, sprinkle cinnamon and dash a touch of nutmeg on it. I then let it rise again and cook it at 375. I mix up some cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk and frost the tops of the rolls with it. I get rave reviews each time. This also works really well to make bread bowls or buns with it. Melt some butter, add some parmesan and garlic salt to it and coat the rolls/breadbowls with it, let it rise and bake it at 375 until golden brown. Such a GREAT recipe!

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
I followed all of the reviewers suggestions and I am wondering how it would have tasted without all that liqueur? I was hoping that it would blend in to the cake and I left it out of the frosting, but I still didn't care for the taste. I increased my coffee up to 1 cup and did 2/3 coffee layers. I think that was a good taste. I used coffee-flavored mascarpone and that was good as well. The only thing I would change is I wouldn't use the liqueur at all. I decorated the top of the cake with Pirouettes and they were a hit! Not a bad recipe overall.

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
This is a fantastic recipe. I did not have any corn, but it still turned out fantastic! I had 8 inch tortillas and it made quite a few! I froze them in groups of two after we ate til our hearts content and I froze 8 chimichangas! I cannot wait to eat them later!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
This was a great recipe. I do not know much about hot sauce and got a bottle that had many Spanish words on it and one word I could recognize "habanjero." I thought, "SURE!" I used just one tablespoon of it and it made our mouths burn and tingle for quite some time! I think this recipe is a great recipe! Next time, I will cut in half the amount of hot sauce again because our palates are just not used to that much heat. It is still an incredibly wonderful recipe full of flavor and is so easy to make!

Make-Ahead Spinach Manicotti

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
This was amazingly easy and incredibly delicious! I kept putting off this recipe because it was a "make ahead" recipe. I finally just made it and cooked it all in one and it was AMAZING! My husband, who hates anything green, loved it and couldn't wait for me to make more! It was even better the next day. I think you do get the best flavor mixture when you make it ahead and will try that next time. GREAT RECIPE!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
An absolutely wonderful recipe! I am often begged to make this for people! I make it low fat by substituting applesauce for oil. Either way, it is fantastically wonderful. I sprinkle sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg on the muffin tins before I place the dough in to give it just a little extra "oh this is so good" kick! :)

Strawberry Dream Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
OH SO GOOD! The only problem I had was with the frosting being a soupy mess at first and I thought I had ruined the cake! I put it in the fridge and let it sit for a few hours and it was PERFECT! I always use Dream Whip instead of Cool Whip because it is cheaper and super good, but I don't think that should have made a big difference. Next time, I will cool my frosting for a few hours before I frost the cake. SUPER GOOD!

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
This was oh so good! I added 1 cup of pumpkin because I had so much pureed pumpkin in my house and then just doubled the amount of spices. I also added an extra 8 oz of cream cheese because any time that I have made a cheesecake with less than 3 boxes, I just haven't cared for it. So for personal preferences, I added. I am sure it would have been great without any additions. I did the water bath and NO cracks! :) It was a VERY good cheesecake!

Amazing Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
For a whole wheat pizza, this is incredibly good! WOW! One of the best crusts I have ever made. Yes, it took some time to rise, but so worth it! Also, my dough rose quicker than stated because I preheated my oven to 200 degrees and turned it off when it reached that and placed my dough in there. It shaved about 1/2 the rising time off. SO good! I will be making this again!

Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
This was a pretty good recipe. I didn't have all of the supplies, but I thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. I used crackers (crushed up) instead of bread crumbs. I also used egg beaters instead of butter because I like how eggs help the coating stick to the chicken so well. I also didn't have parmesan, so I just kept those out. I think this was a pretty solid recipe that can have adjustments made to it and still turned out well.

Stack of Onion Rings

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
I recognize that everyone else really enjoyed this recipe, but I did not. First of all, when I am eating something loaded down with fat, I want it to be AWESOME! I could NOT get the breadcrumbs to stick to the onions! I crushed the crumbs down to almost nothing, but they would not stay on the onions. I then got frustrated with that and started just coating with flour and dipping in the batter. I couldn't tell the difference between the two. My bread crumbs were soggy and stuck together; they ended up being a great treat for my dogs! When eating the rings, they were incredibly bland. Maybe if the crumbs would have stuck it would have tasted better, but that didn't work. I sprinkled with garlic salt and that seemed to give some flavor. I won't make this again.

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
WOW! This recipe was incredible! I did 2 cups of coconut milk (light, once I got home, I realized that I got that one by mistake) and 1 cup of evaporated milk (what was I thinking at the store on Christmas Eve not to pick up half and half and only whipped creme??). I used 1/2 c of corn starch instead of 1/3 like most people suggested (another accident) (I was following the recipe and subbing exactly on that one.) It was VERY thick after about twenty minutes on the stove and I don't think it ever boiled, but it started to look like tapioca pudding and I was worried. I took it off and poured it into my baked crust (fresh out of the oven! YIKES!) and into the fridge it went overnight. I topped it with whipped cream (from this website) and toasted (a little too toasted...oops!). I took some pictures of it and gave a piece to my hubby (who requested it) and he said it was better than his mama's! YEAH! GREAT recipe! With all my "mistakes," it still turned out great!
