Chicken Enchilada Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2007
I made this dip when it was my turn to host Bunco and I got multiple requests for the recipe. I did what several others had done--use half mayo/half sour cream and substituted Rotel for the jalapeno and chile peppers. I serve this with pretzel crisps found in the deli section of my local supermarket. YUM!

Crunchy Ice Cream Dessert

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
I also have a similar recipe made with rice krispies. I used sliced almonds and when serving, drizzled with caramel sauce. Yum!

Marie's Summer Marvel

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
This recipe was okay. It's almost like a cosmopolitan with some lemonade added in. I would just as soon drink a cosmo, but that's my preference.

Cosmopolitan

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2008
LOVE this drink! I also made a few changes, similar to the other reviewers. I use Rose's lime juice (purchase at the grocery store to save money). I substituted triple sec for the Cointreau because of cost. I also used citrus vodka because it was what I had on hand. Delicious!

Raspberry Almond Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2008
These are very good breakfast muffins. After reading the other reviews I added a few spoonfuls of sugar to the fresh berries before I folded them in. They are not super sweet, but my whole family liked them this way. I doubled the recipe because I had raspberries I needed to use up. I substituted vanilla extract for the almond extract and omitted the almonds only because I didn't have either and I wanted the muffins NOW! I used 24 regular size muffin tins sprayed, and still had enough batter left over (after filling the tins 3/4 full)to make a tin of 12 mini muffins to which I added chocolate chips for my youngest. This, of course, was yummy too! I will definitely make this again after I buy almonds and extract!

Tangy BBQ Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
These ribs were yummy! This was my first attempt at making ribs and I wanted something easy. I made them in the crockpot because it's so hot outside I didn't want to use the oven, and I didn't know what would happen if I attempted to make them on the grill! LOL If you use the crockpot, be sure to cook on low for at least 7 hours.

The South Mission Mango

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
This is a definitely a nice drink for sitting out on the patio. I agree with some of the reviews in that it is a very thick, frothy drink. I used frozen mango because I couldn't find canned and then I cut back on the ice.

Sausage and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
This is a delicious and easy breakfast casserole. I followed the recipe as is and my family loved it! However, I too found it was not necessary to refrigerate overnight (as another reviewer stated). My 8 year old requested this for Christmas breakfast and my mother-in-law wanted the recipe (so you know it HAS to be good LOL).

Brandy Slushes

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
I got this recipe from my mother-in-law. I made it for my bunco group and it was a big hit. However, I used peach brandy and substituted frozen peach daquiri mix for one of the concentrates. I also provide ginger ale, rather than lemon-lime soda. Be sure to make this first thing in the morning and stir every hour or two to keep the alcohol mixed as well as to prevent big chunks from forming (trust me on this, I learned the hard way!).

Crabmeat Canapes

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
I followed the advice of the other reviewers and used garlic powder in place of garlic salt. I also lightly toasted the muffins first. I was unable to find Kraft Old English cheese so I used Wispride sharp cheddar in the dairy section of the grocery store. These were very good. My kids loved them too, I called them "Krabby Patties"!

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
Very good and very easy! You may want to add some spices or parmesan cheese to liven it up.

Caramelized Onion and Gorgonzola Pizza

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
I, too, followed reviewers advice and used the quick and easy pizza crust from this site. I reduced the gorgonzola to 5 oz. (the size of the tub in my local store) and added about 5 oz. shredded mozzarella. Be sure to use 2 BIG onions. Yummy!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
Although this recipe doesn't need any more comments, I'll explain how I doubled it. I used a 9x13" pan. I made an oreo crust for the bottom using 2 sleeves of crushed Oreos. Then added a half gallon of raspberry swirl. Then a layer of strawberry sauce and 1 sleeve crushed oreos. Another layer of strawberry swirl and covered that with whipped cream. Delicious!

Red Velvet Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
I think this is as close to a true red velvet cake as you can get while using a boxed cake mix. I consider myself a RV connoisseur but a novice cake baker so the idea of making a RV cake from scratch seemed daunting. I followed this recipe exactly except for using 3 T of cocoa powder and a different icing recipe as suggested by other reviewers. This cake was fabulous! Everyone who tasted it loved it and it was moist and delicious. I will definitely be making this again!

Spicy Beef Vegetable Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
This soup was awesome! My kids loved it. I added some fresh veggies I had around the house-corn, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots. I also added some shell pasta during the last half hour of cooking. I did not use the tsp. of pepper b/c I did not want spicy stew. I used only enough water to rinse out the sauce and tomato containers and I had to add more water after the pasta cooked to make it more like soup.

Creamy Hot Cocoa

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
Yummy, rich and chocolatey! I took other reviewers' advice and started with 1/3 cup sugar and added more to taste. I also added 2 packets of splenda to save some calories.

German Chocolate Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
I LOVE these bars! Yup, they are very rich and very chocolatey (is that a word?) which is why we like them. I sprinkle some coconut flakes on top when adding the chocolate chips and frosting because I like a little more coconut. I never refrigerate before cutting; I simply let cool completely like I would brownies.

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2010
My main reason for rating this is to let you know this can be made the night before. I used 3 small (7 oz?) tubes of biscuits, followed the recipe for the cinnamon & sugar coating, and left them in the bundt pan overnight in the fridge covered with plastic wrap. In the morning, I made the caramel mixture (with a tsp. of vanilla as others suggested) and baked. They came out great! This step saved me a lot of time in the morning as I needed them for our early morning bus stop party.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
My family LOVES this recipe. What I've learned from making this several times is that if you will be home in 5-6 hours, follow the recipe exactly. If you are going to be gone longer, then it is best to add the soup in the morning unless you use frozen chicken breasts which will obviously take longer to cook. I had a long day at work and left the thawed chicken breasts on low for 7 hours and they began to get brown. This did not affect the taste of the recipe, however. I have also used a packet of ranch dressing which I had on hand, rather than the Italian. This is simple and delicious every time!

Basic Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
This ham and bean soup was delicious! I followed some other reviewers' suggestions and bought a bag of mixed dried beans. I used the quick soak method and it worked fine. I put the leftover bone from our Christmas spiral ham along with all the other ingredients in the crock pot for 8 hours on low. Along with a loaf of Italian bread we had a hearty meal for a cold winter night!
