Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
This dip is ALWAYS a winner! Like others, I did make some modifications. One can of refried beans is not enough, you will need two (which I warmed up a bit in the microwave first to make it easier to stir)- and, I only used 1/2 a packet of taco seasoning (a full packet may overwhelm the overall taste). I also made homeade quacamole (I used five avacados for this recipe) and used in lieu of the lettuce, which I feel adds a ton of flavor. Instead of salsa, I used two cans of drained chopped tomates with green chilies (which will avoid the dip getting watery). I also left out the green pepper, which is a personal preference. I layered the beans first, the followed with the sour cream/cream cheese mixture, then the quacamole, the tomatoes, the cheese, then topped with sliced black and green olives and green onions. I have yet to meet anyone who has not loved this dip!

Cousin Cosmo's Greek Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
I love this recipe- the sauce adds just the right touch. The only change that I made was that I sprinkled a little garlic powder into the flour mix before coating the chicken, and, I halved grape tomatoes instead of dicing a full size tomato. Just serve over your favorite rice, add a greek salad and presto! You have a delicious home cooked meal.

Bacon Quiche Tarts

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
I wanted something different then the typical breakfast casserole to bring to a brunch at work. This is a great idea and a perfect base recipe that you can customize to your liking. I omitted the onion because I knew some people did not like onions. I also used Grands Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits (10 count) and divided each biscuit in half (crust turned out perfect- nice and golden and not to doughy). I used diced ham instead of bacon and cheddar instead of swiss, and added some ground mustard, salt & pepper. Everybody loved them and wanted the recipe. Because I was making for a large group, I kept the recipe more simple, to try and suit everyone. Next time I will make for my family and try some of the suggestions of diced green chilis, green onions and bacon. Also, I tripled the recipe and it made more then enough filling for 30 quiches and my cook time was only about 15 minutes. I was worried about them sticking to the pan, but I used a non-stick cupcake pan and they popped right out. Thanks for the recipe!

Fried Cabbage II

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
Love this! Such a simple and delicious recipe. Sometimes I add 1/2 bag of shredded carrots to give it a little extra flavor and color.

Blue Cheese Chicken Wing Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
I really liked this dip, but I changed the amounts of the ingredients used. I used (3) small chicken breasts, (2) packages of cream cheese, 1/2 of the Buffalo sauce (I used Frank's), 1/2 of the Blue Cheese dressing (I also poured in about 1/2 cup of Ranch dressing) and did not add any butter. I was sure to remove any fat from the chicken breast and I also rinsed them to avoid getting any of the greasiness that many complained of. I did not layer the dip, instead, I used a hand mixer to mix the cream cheese and wet ingredients until smooth and then stirred in the chicken. I made this ahead of time and stored in the fridge for about 2 hours before cooking. It turned out nice and creamy. I served with Fritos Scoops. Lots of compliments on this one !!!

Crab Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
Like other reviewers, I thought that this made a great base recipe, but I wanted to "kick it up" a bit. I used chopped up green onion instead of a regular onion, I added 1 tbls of Old Bay seasoning, 1 tbls horseradish, a few squirts of lemon and about 3/4 c of cheddar cheese. Before baking, I sprinkled with more Old Bay seasoning to give it some color. Right before it was done baking, I put the oven on "Broil" just long enough to get it nice and bubbly, with golden brown edges- Yum!

7-Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2008
Very good- always a crowd pleaser! I substitute the regular sausage with mexican chirizo sausage; which gives it an bold, authentic mexican flavor.

Best Ziti Ever

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
This was very, very good! I did not heat the sauce (felt it was not necessary), and I did not have any Italian seasoning, so I used Italian salad dressing (I've always used plain ricotta in recipes, so the Italian seasoning was a great idea to add flavor-thanks for the useful tip!). Also, I mixed the Basil in the ricotta cheese instead of in the sauce.

Chicken Pot Pie IV

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2007
This was a tasty and easy meal to make. I used a can of carrots and peas, and a prepared box of frozen broccoli with cheese sauce that you would find in the freezer section. I used one of the reviewer's suggestions and pre-cooked the pie shell (which I bought pre-made) for about 5 minutes before filling. I found that this made enough filling for almost (2) deep-dish pies (I did add an extra chicken breast as well), so I had some leftovers which I put in the freezer and will hopefully be able to use in the future.

Aztec Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2007
This recipe tasted good, my only reservation is that when you remove it from the baking dish it "falls" and looks a bit sloppy when served. I added some chili powder, paprika, salt & pepper to give it some extra flavor. I liked one of the reviewer's ideas to add black beans (I will do that when I make it again) And, as another reviewer mentioned, you only use about 1/2 of the enchilada sauce to dip, so I did drizzle some of the extra sauce in between layeres. I also sprinkled some Mexican style cheese on top before baking. I served it with some chopped green onions and black olives.

Shish Tawook Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2007
My husband and I loved this recipe. We made Shish Tawook Sandwiches by spreading the garlic sauce over a warm pita, then adding the prepared chicken, along with sliced onions and thin pickle slices (as served in one of our favorite restaurants). Very Good !!!
