Easy Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2001
The chips on the bottom got kinda mushy, so we added them to the top as well as the bottom. Very good.

Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2001
Tasted great. The crust got a bit soggy, so the slices didn't come out of the pie plate very nicely. My family would have liked a sweetened whipped topping like Cool Whip or Reddi-whip instead of the whipped cream.

Arrabbiata Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2001
By some of the past reviews, I thought this might be really spicy. It wasn't. It had the right amount of kick to it. Those other people must be wimps. We didn't care for the fresh parsley.

Pepper-Parmesan Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2001
I was expecting a thicker dressing. Even when I added more sour cream and parmesan, it didn't do the trick. I recommend adding only part of the buttermilk and vinegar at first and then adding more to get the desired consistency. This definitely was not the PP dressing we made in the restaurant where I worked in college.

Buttermilk Cornbread Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2001
These muffins had a light hint of honey, but like all cornbreads I've made, they were a little dry despite the note about the honey making them moist.

Chicken I Hate You!

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2001
This was super easy to make. I thought it was ok, but a neighbor (a non-cook) liked it enough to ask for the recipe. If I make this again, I think I'll try using fresh asparagus and fresh mushrooms to avoid the canned flavor.

Smoky Potato Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2001
I was looking for a new way to use smoked sausage when I found this recipe. Definitely a keeper. Very good. The second time I made this with less fat and it's still good. I omitted the butter and used a pan spray. Fat free evaporated milk, light velveeta, fat free/low sodium broth, healthy choice smoked sausage. Yummy. Only problem was the milk curdling during reheating -- don't know if the full fat version does that.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2001
I live alone and often cook for just myself. I try to find recipes that withstand the tortures of the microwave. This was not one of them. Tasted good the first time when it was warm and creamy, yucky cold and gross reheated. I won't make this again unless I've got a crowd to feed.

Banana Chai Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2001
Good bread, but I didn't make the tea strong enough. It tasted strong when I brewed it, but the chai flavor was masked by the other ingredients once I mixed it in. Anybody know the ratio of water to chai tea leaves necessary so the tea is strong enough to taste in the baked bread?

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2001
Good, but didn't seem that different from any other french toast recipe i've tried.

Runzas II (Bierocks)

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2001
Good and easy, but the mixture needed some spice. Maybe next time I'll try adding the fennel seed.

Zucchini Pineapple Bread II

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2001
This recipe makes 2 9x5 loafs, or 2 8x8 pans, or a 9x13 pan, or about 30 muffins. Just change the baking time accordingly. Last night I made a 9x13. It was done right at an hour. I substituted splenda granular for half of the sugar and unsweetened applesauce for half of the oil. To draw out the water in the zucchini, I grated it, measured it and then froze it overnight. The next day I thawed it, drained it and added it to this recipe. Thanks, everybody, for the high reviews.

Cashew Crusted Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2001
We served the chicken with rice. There was leftover sauce and rice, so my sister put the sauce on the rice before putting it in the fridge. When my teenage brother came home, he really enjoyed the leftovers.

Sunshine Toast

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2001
My dad used to make these for me when I was little. Butter is good, but bacon grease is better. After frying bacon, drain off all but enough grease to coat the pan. Then put the bread in the pan and add the egg. I like hard egg yolks, so I break the yolk right after adding it.

Easy Mushroom Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2001
I've found the rice that works in this is the Uncle Ben's Converted Rice. When i used the cheap brands of regular long grain rice, the rice takes more than an hour to cook. An additional half hour even. The converted rice is cooked through after 60 minutes. Definitely better to spend the extra money than to run around the kitchen like a chicken with her head cut off because the guests are hungry and the rice isn't done. This is on the table every year for Christmas.

Cinnamon Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2001
Of the half dozen types of cookies I made for Christmas, my boyfriend liked these the best. This does not make a lot of cookies. I rolled the logs into 1" diameter and ended up with about 4 dozen cookies 2" in diameter. I only got about one tablespoon of the cinnamon sugar to stick to the logs, so they were lightly cinnamon in flavor unlike a snickerdoodle. Not a beauty contest winner, but still a good tasting cookie.

Mixed Vegetable Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2002
My sister made this for us yesterday. The non-onion lovers in the group would have preferred less or even no onion. I think the onion she used was just an extra powerful one. I thought it was good. I was surprised when she said this has canned veggies. I usually prefer frozen ones. I guess with enough cheese even canned veggies are good.

No Time to Cook Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2002
Very easy to prepare in the morning. Smelled yummy when I got home from work 10.5 hours after starting it. Chicken wasn't dry and was really tender. I realized too late that I didn't have enough sour cream, so I used 1/4 c sour cream and 1/4 c fat free plain yogurt. Tasted fine and with less fat.

Scones

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2002
I had never eaten a scone before. I make more muffins. Not as sweet as muffins usually are. Easy to make. Good with a hot beverage for breakfast. I carefully added a half cup of elderberries after kneading the dough. My coworkers thought I could have added more fruit.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2003
I typically use a one pound frozen white bread dough cut into thirds for my pizza crust and bake on a stone. This recipe makes more like 5 of my size and thickness pizza crusts. Dough was sticky (probably needed more flour.) Taste was ok -- not better or worse than the frozen dough, just different. For the additional work this recipe is not worth it. I am sticking with the frozen bread dough!
