Blueberry Crisp II

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
I was skeptical as well about this recipe given the mayonnaise, but after reading the reviews, I thought I'd give it a try. My husband liked it, but he is generally easy to please. I did not like it at all. I followed the steps exactly, but I felt the mayonnaise taste was too overpowering...I wasn't expecting to taste it at all. It was too weird of a combination for me. Maybe if I try it with some ice cream, it might be better. However, I won't be making this again.

Blueberry Scones

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
The end product tasted good enough, but this recipe definitely does not create true "scones." They're more like muffin tops. I took everyone's advice and made the suggested changes, but unlike all other recipes I have made (which always turn out fabulously), these still did not turn out to be all that great.

Triple Threat Fruit Smoothie

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2007
Grrrrrreat! Unfortunately I had to do a lot of substituting....I thought I had enough strawberries but it turned out most went bad. I had the blueberry filling used to add to yogurt, but still needed more. Luckily I had strawberry and blueberry drinkable-yogurt though. I added about 1/2 of a small bottle of each and then I did not add any more yogurt as called for. I didn't have OJ, but I did have lemon juice which turned out fine probably because of the sweetness of the yogurts and I didn't add a full 1/2 cup as called for. No kiwi either, but dash of honey. I really had to tweek it a lot, but it turned out great. I look forward to making it when I have all of the proper ingredients!

Green Bean Casserole I

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
I made this for Thanksgiving for my husband's family. We're living in Central America and I had difficulty finding some of the ingredients, but substitutions still made this an incredible side-dish! I couldn't find cream of mushroom soup, so I used cream of onion instead. I didn't have French fried onions, but they did have at the grocery store bags of the onion-flavored ring (in the potato chip aisle). I wasn't expecting my husband to eat the side dish as he is not a big onion fan, but even he loved it!

Hot Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
I would probably only give this a 4 according to the ingredients listed for the recipe, but it deserves more than a 5 with the additions and changes! I don't like pimentos, so I added a jalapeno pepper instead. I followed advice from other reviews and added lemon juice and minced garlic as well. Delicious!

Maple Dill Carrots

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
I had to prepare Thanksgiving for my husband's entire family who had never had a traditional Thanksgiving meal before (we're living in Central America, where he is from). I wanted to serve something besides just plain veggies. I honestly was a little nervous about preparing this, thinking it would be too different for their tastes, but everyone loved the carrots! I was rushing around like crazy and this was one of the last dishes I prepared. I ended up only eyeballing the ingredients, and they still turned out fantastic! Like other reviews, I am not sure why they are called maple, but they still taste great!

Canadian Barn BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
I loved this sauce! It was a little too sweet for my husband's tastes, but he still enjoyed the ribs.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
UNBELIEVABLE! I thought I made my mom's brownies when these first came out, and she always made hers out of a box! I have made these brownies tons of times and they truly do always turn out! I've made the suggested topping, however, you can also sprinkle powdered sugar on top or buy prepared vanilla frosting (both of which I have done). I bet a cream cheese frosting would be great too (I'll have to try that next!) I also like to add semi-sweet chocolate chips...peanut butter chips or mixed peanut butter and chocolate chips make the brownies even more irresistible! At Christmastime, there was a special edition raspberry-chocolate swirl chip that was sold...needless to say those were probably my favorite brownies I've made with this recipe! If you follow the recipe ingredients, about 1/4-1/2 a bag of chips is enough. When I add the chips, I don't put a topping on though.

Carrot Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
I could not get over at how DELICIOUS AND MOIST this cake was! Before making this cake, I only had eaten carrot cake. I could not believe I had actually made such an incredible cake!

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
OMG!!! I am still licking my lips from this INCREDIBLE lasagna! I had never made lasagna before and I was nervous about how it would turn out. Follow this recipe and you should have no problems! I didn't have ricotta cheese, so I used cottage cheese instead and it turned out great!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
Fantastick flapjacks! I followed some suggestions and reduced the amount of milk a little and added vanilla. I really was amazed at how nicely they turned out. The recipe ingredients listed are enough to make pancakes for 2 adults (possibly with leftovers). I made the mistake of doubting the amount that would come out and doubled the recipe....needless to say we had LOTS extra! I probably won't add the nutmeg next time though, as suggested from other reveiws.

Lemon Square Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
I wanted to use up some lemons we had, and this was a good choice. I had to follow the suggestions of others, a little less powedered sugar, a little less butter, less white sugar, and more lemon juice. They still turned out incredibly sweet. I think I left the bottom pastry part in the oven too long because in the end it turned out a little hard, but it was still a great treat!

Chicken Cordon Bleu I

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
This is absolutely delicious! A favorite for my husband when served with mashed potatoes. I used provolone at first, but for a little extra kick, buy Jalapeno Jack. It takes a few extra minutes to slice the cheese and the rolls may not come out as flat, but it is well worth it! I also used crushed Ritz crackers.

Baked Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
It was a nice change to the regular sweet potatoes with marshmallows--very different! I used rosemary instead of oregano. They turned out fine, but I'll have to try the oregano or another mixture next time to see if they turn out better.

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
This meatloaf was INCREDIBLE! And I can't believe I am saying that about a meatloaf! It is so tender and moist and delicious! I definitely followed some of the additions/changes suggested and the glaze of 1/2 c. ketchup, 1 tbsp. vinegar, 1 tbsp. yellow mustard, 1/4 c. sugar is a MUST! I cannot wait to make this for my Mom...I know she will be blown away that the meatloaf I make will be better than hers! (Sorry Mom!)

Light and Spicy Fish

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
This is a great dish. I would probably only give it 4 stars for the flavor which was good, but not incredible. However, because of the simplicity of preparation, I have to give it 5! My husband isn't that in to healthy foods, but he really liked the fish.
