Butternut Squash Supreme

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
This side dish is delicous! I had all of the ingredients on hand except for the onion (I used dried, minced onion instead). It does take a little effort to prepare, but it is well worth it. This is going to be a great addition to my Thanksgiving meal. It is very savory and light. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
This came out pretty good. As far as taste, I thought there was plenty. I used one 8 oz package of shredded sharp cheddar and 1 8 oz of three different shredded cheddars. I also used 1/2 tsp of dry mustard instead of dijon. My husband tasted the sharpness right away. This was pretty good! Just make sure you serve immediately. I tried to reheat mine and it came out nothing like it did when I first made it, as is the case with most macaroni and cheeses.

Taffy Apple Salad III

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
I doubled this recipe for a family reunion and it turned out great! The only problem I had was finding Spanish peanuts without the red skin. I ended up spending some time and removing some of it before I added it to the dish. This is a delicous recipe! Perfect for summer!

Fresh Strawberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
I am giving this a high rating even though my cake did not turn out at all; some of the cake was still delicious. I strayed from the original recipe, so I do blame myself. I used almost two containers of fresh strawberries and mashed them. This seemed adequate for completely filling the bottom of a 9x13 (not only two cups like the recipe calls for). I also used a little more marshmallows, maybe a quarter of a cup or so. I used a glass 9x13 dish and let it bake. About 35 minutes into it, I checked it. The cake was already getting really brown, so I quickly pulled it to put a toothpick in it. The cake was still very loose in the middle, so I stuck it right back in without even using the toothpick. I put it in a little longer and tried again, but this time I used a toothpick and even though the cake was not solid, the toothpick still came out clean...I figured it was done! I mean, I didn't understand it, but the cake was pretty brown and the toothpick was clean! Well, not only was the cake not done, but I was missing the cake all together! There wasn't enough cake for strawberries. I did try the part of the cake that was done (and it was absolutely delicious!), but most of it I had to dump :( Well, you live and learn, I suppose. Anyway, my advise, don't go crazy with the strawberries, no matter how tempting it may be (or at least use a bundt pan to ensure more cake to strawberry ratio) and make sure you bake all the way through no matter how clean the toothpick is...LOL

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
I loved these enchiladas, but the filling was too messy for me and my husband. Next time, I will omit the sour cream/chicken soup mix and just fill with the meat mixture. I will also only use a small portion of the enchilada sauce on the top of smaller tortillas. I felt the larger ones were a little much.

Chicken Potato Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
OK-so I changed this recipe a bit. I coated the chicken with mayo and then dipped in Italian bread crumbs. I then took the Italian dressing and seasoning and drizzled over entire dish, along with the parmesan cheese. I made a big mistake by adding raw green beans and baby red potatoes (I thought that covering the dish for a half hour would help cook them faster-I was wrong). Both came out only partially cooked. Next time I will boil for a few minutes before sticking in oven. The chicken came out great and so did the green beans and potatoes after a little more heating in the micro.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2009
This is a great recipe, hands down one of the best Spinach Artichoke dips I ever ate. I made some adjustments along the way: I used mayo and sour cream (about a cup and a quarter of the combo...more mayo than sour cream), extra cheese within the recipe (I only added a little bit on top), I used a heavy hand when adding the garlic powder, and I only used a small amount of minced garlic. I used an entire 10oz frozen package of spinach. I did not use any other spices, not even salt. It comes out creamy and delicious!

Italian Style Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
My husband told me that this was the best meatloaf he ever ate. Score! I changed a little bit of the recipe. First, I used Italian bread crumbs. I used a 6 cheese marinara instead of ketchup. I couldn't find my Italian blend spice, but I figured the bread crumbs would help with that. I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. Once I had everything mixed in and pressed into the baking dish, I covered the top with more marinara sauce. About a half hour before it was done, I topped with more Mozzarella cheese. It turned out great! Next time, I will transfer from the baking dish to a serving plate so it doesn't look so bad. There was a ton of grease from the meat and cheese sitting on all sides of the baking dish. To finish off my meal, I made wide noodles with butter and parmesan.I warmed more marinara sauce to top it all. With a side of french cut green beans, this meal was top-notch without breaking the bank or the back!

Kicky Steak Strips with Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
This recipe was pretty good, but nothing extraordinary. I tried to add more veggies for me, the veg-head, but, in the end, it reminded me of fajita filling on top of white rice. If I make again, I will make sure I have tortillas on hand :)

Chicken Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
This recipe turned out great! I made just a few changes. 1. I used 12 oz of extra wide noodles. 2. I used 2 cups of cheese (I didn't use low fat) within the recipe and about 1 cup to sprinkle on top. I also added a bit of bread crumbs on top. 3. I used black pepper, not white. 4. I ended up using a 9x13 casserole dish. The dish turned out delicious.I will definitely make again. There are quite a few ingredients to prepare, so next time I will not start at 8pm.lol We ended up eating a bit late.

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
This turned out great! I made a few changes along the way. I halved the beef (used veggie beef crumbles),used 1 small onion, used about 1 tbsp of taco seasoning on the beef, used half a bottle of taco sauce, used more than half of the lg. bottle of chunky salsa,used a ton more cheese (mexican and chihuahua cheese), used the whole can of mild chiles and less than half a can of the tomatoes. I kept the beans separate from the beef mixture. Instead of topping with beef and cheese, I topped with 3 tortillas and cheese. It was nice and crisp, giving the pie a good texture.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
I only give this 4 stars, because I did not care for the dumplings (too doughy), but everyone else in my family liked it. I am not sure if I will make this again, but if I do, I might make the dumplings separate.

Garlic Top Sirloin Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
I have made this about 3 times now for my family. It is gone in an instant! I do not add as much onion, but I still put in quite a bit. I use baby red potatoes and bagged baby corn. This is a must in the fall and winter!

Hashbrown Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
I love this casserole! I make this for all the major holidays and birthdays in the fall and winter months. The only change I make is adding much more cheese. This last time, I used almost 1 lb of cheese within and on top of the casserole. Yummy!!!!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2008
This is a very easy and delicious recipe. I only made 3 fresh chicken breasts, adjusting the recipe as needed. Famous Dave's Rich and Sassy was my bbq sauce of choice (yummy!) I slow cooked the meal on high for the first half hour and then on low for 2 and a half hours. I took the meat out and shredded it. Then I put it back in the slow cooker for an additional hour on low. Once it was done, I added a little more bbq sauce to the mixture, since a lot of the liquid was soaked up after I shredded the meat. It turned out great! This is a must try!

Black Bean and Corn Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
This recipe was a hit at my family reunion! Nothing was left but the cleaned out bowl. I doubled the recipe and added some fresh/chopped cilantro, some canned/diced tomato with jalapenos, and some cubed pepper jack cheese. I left out the celery. It had a little kick to it, but it was perfect! I left a bowl of scoops next to it, in case anyone wanted it as a salsa instead of a salad.
