Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2007
This is really good! It does taste like an authentic enchilada sauce (judged from the restaurant enchilada sauces I've had at least). I didn't use the specific chili powder called for, though, just used the ordinary kind. Maybe that would have made it even better. As it was, it turned out a good amount, consistency, and well-spiced taste. With ground meat, corn tortillas, some chopped onion, garlic, and cheddar cheese it made a simple, easy, and very tasty enchilada dinner that everyone liked!

Grandma B's Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
Oh my goodness is this delicious! This soup really tastes like good ole' fashioned home-cooking! I was looking for a recipe that would be as good as some ham and bean soup that I had at a Sunday church lunch, and this is definitely as good if not better. I've made quite a few recipes off this site and this is my favorite so far for ease and taste. I did make a few recommended modifications: bay leaves, plenty of salt and pepper, chicken broth, and a partially cooked ham steak (my own idea; pan-fried and put pan juices and the little bone in the pot for flavor).

Linguine with Peppers and Sausage

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2007
I love this recipe! It's not something I can make all the time since we don't keep wine around, but when bell peppers go on sale I buy the wine and this goes on the menu! If you like spicy it's even better with red pepper flakes. I like it best with bowtie pasta as well.

Million Dollar Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2007
A truly beautiful and delicious cake!! Mine turned out looking just like the picture! I made the icing first and let it sit in the refridgerator while I made and baked the cake, only taking it out at right when I was ready to use it. This made the whole process easy and it stayed on the cake perfectly. This is definitely one of those that tastes better after getting thoroughly chilled in the refridgerator (2-3 days) though. I can imagine it would be good with coconut in the icing, cake, or even both and with orange flavored cake too.

Basil Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2007
Very tasty, but it's a tad bit bland. I've only made this once and my family enjoyed it, but it could definitely be improved. I'm not experienced enough with sauces to say exactly what would do the trick.

Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2007
A great, easy, and hearty vegetable soup. My family really enjoyed it with some warm Jiffy cornbread. I made it per the directions except that I did it all in a stock pot on the stove. I had to add a lot more broth to bring it to the soup consistency I wanted, and the leftovers will need more broth still. Personally, I didn't think the barley was even necessary as the vegetable taste overpowered it.
