Baked Omelet Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
This was SOOO yummy! I made lots of leftovers so have for the week. My variation was that I browned the ham, removed from pan, then browned bell pepper and onion, added tiny cubes of zucchini. Put that and the olives in the bottom of a Pam sprayed 9X13 pan. Added the cheese then slowly the egg mixture as directed. Topped with crumbled bacon. The leftovers were even great cold for a quick breakfast or snack. Oh, and I cooked it a little less than called for. I LIKE it a little wet.

Chili Cheese Puff

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
I'd give this a 10 if I could. Someone brought this to a brunch and I could have eaten the WHOLE PAN!! SO yummy!! To the reviewer who only gave it a 4 and modified it greatly, no wonder, you totally changed the recipe. Make is AS IS (something I rarely do) and you won't be disappointed!

Easy Homestyle Green Beans

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
I would have given it 10 stars if I could! Yum!!! I pretty much followed the recipe, only modifying slightly. Here's what I did. I used very meaty bacon. I used a whole sliced onion. I rinsed the beans and discarded the liquid. After adding the beans to the onions and bacon, I added about 1/4 c water and sprinkled with about 1/3- 1/2 a seasoning packet from Top Ramen. I tried it twice. We liked the beef packet better than chicken. SOOOO yummy. I don't think I'll ever make the traditional green bean casserole with cream of mushroom soup (which I LOVE by the way) again because this is so much better. Thanks Jenn

Creamy Hot Cocoa

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
Yum! Here's how to do it easily in the microwave: In a 4 cup Pyrex measuring cup, put your cocoa (I used a rounded 1/3 c), sugar (I used a rounded 1/3 c), salt, and cold water. Mix with spoon. (It will be quite lumpy). Microwave for about 2 minutes, stopping to stir several times. Microwave more if needed, but keep stirring several times until this syrup is fairly lump-free. Add the vanilla and the milk. Continue microwaving and stirring a bit until this is hot and creamy (about 5 minutes.) Pour into mugs and top with 1/ & 1/2 as directed or use whipped cream. Sooo yummy!!!

Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
These were delicious, though they were crispy, not chewy. The only change I made was to add a 1/2 t salt. My next batch, I will try cooking less time in the oven.

Cajun Crab Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
Oh my GOSH! This was fantastic!!! My friend made it and brought it to our group to try out. Everyone RAVED about it! I think the only thing she shanged was to use yellow corn. It gave it a nice color so when I make it, I intend to do the same. Thanks for the GREAT recipe!

Swiss Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
Yum! This was really an easy tasty dinner. I only modified slightly. Here's what I did: After placing the chicken breasts in my 9X13 glass pan, I sprinkles with grilled chicken seasoning (mostly garlic). I then topped with the soup combined with the milk. I didn't have Swiss cheese, so I used sharp cheddar, but I think Swiss might have been more flavorful, so stick with that. Then I topped with about 3 cups of the stuffing mix and a bit more melted butter than it said. My breasts were pretty big so I baked about an hour. It was really yummy.

Dijon-Tarragon Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2008
Yummmmm!!! I'll admit, I changed a bit. I wanted more sauce to I tippled it (but used 1/2 and 1/2, not cream) I coated the chicken as directed with the Dijon mustard, but added the extra Dijon drippings back in as it was cooking in the sauce. I panned browned the chicken in seasoned flour first too. I don't normally like breasts because they're too dry compared to dark meat. I LOVED these! They were SO moist and yummy!

Busy Day Barbeque Brisket

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2008
Excellent! The only change I made was to add about 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce when cooking. I cut the brisket in 4 pieces. When cooked, I removed the chunks of meat and cooled slightly before shredding with 2 forks and discarding the fat. I added the shredded meat back into the sauce after I'd skimmed the fat off and cooked for another 1/2 hour. I served on English muffins, but sourdough hogie rolls would have been great too.

Stuffed Zucchini

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
Yum! I made it pretty close to the original recipe (something unusual for me). The only thing I changed were I used bulk Italian sausage and added an egg to the mixture. Oh, and I upped the garlic (like triple or more) and added fresh basil to the sauce. My recommendations- Use whatever sausage you like to start with. Italian was great. My friend Becky used Mushroom and Asiago that she got from Trader Joes. I don't recommend Mozerella cheese. Though it tasted fine, it resembled plastic on top. My friend used jack cheese and it was great. I love the sauce. I want more of it (50-100 percent more. We served it with Pasta. My friend used brown Batsmati rice. I liked them both, but the rice was better to me. We just wanted more of that yummy sauce.

Fresh Apple Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
Oh my gosh this was great!! The caramel sauce was to die for. Double it for sure and pour on at serving time. I tried it in the microwave and it didn't get real thick until it cooled, but I probably overcooked it because it was not as brown as the picture showed. I topped with extra pecans because I love them.

Easy Vodka Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
I'm rating it a 5, but it didn't seem too easy. I had to stir it a lot to get it to thicken. I made it twice. Made with 1/2 & 1/2 was not so good. Much better made with heavy whipping cream. Thanks for the recipe.

Easy Pesto

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
This was really yummy Rebbecca. Thanks! I couldn't believe how fast it was and way cheaper and better tasting than the pre-made store bought stuff, I wanted to make it lower in fat so I used 1/3 water to replace 2/3 the oil. I suppose you could use lemon juice too but I loved it as made. I served it over linguine with a bit of fresh shredded Parmesan cheese and some toasted pine nuts. I made it twice. It was better made with toasted pine nuts rather than almonds, although, both were great.

Zucchini Casserole II

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
This was really yummy! I made a few changes but I'm sure it would have been great as is. First, I mixed in about 1/2 sleeve of Ritz crackers in the stuffing with the butter. I used only 4 cups zucchini, which I pre-cooked in the microwave for about 3 minutes. I cut the sour cream in half since I had less zucchini and added some garlic POWDER (don't use garlic SALT, because it was pretty salty already with all the Ritz crackers) I wanted to make it a complete meal so I added a drained can of turkey meat to the zucchini/soup mixture. I probably cooked it 30 minutes and it was nicely crisp-tender, but the crust was dark and yummy. We ate 2 helpings each. Yum!!

Beer Bread I

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
This was very yummy. I'm not sure why, but mine had a bitter aftertaste in the crust. I used 1/2 King Arthur wheat flour because I ran out of white flour. I used Bud Light because it's what I had. Could it have been that? Other than that, it was great! I'll try again as directed.

Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
OH MY GOSH!!! These were FANTASTIC!!! We ate them right from the pan but they would be great on pancakes or with ice cream. I added a bit more cinnamon and cornstarch. I put up one jar canned to see how they come out. My 4-yr-old daughter won't stop telling me how great they were and keeps calling me the BEST mom!

Grilled Chicken Citrus Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
I'm giving it a 4 because the chicken was great but the salad was just okay. The directions say to split the marinade so you save 1/2 for the dressing. There's where the problem lies. It makes a great marinade but a watery bla dressing. I added some oil because what's dressing without SOME oil. It was better but it still just tasted like juice. If you are one to like a squeeze of juice on a salad, then you may like this. My husband liked it even less than I did. Also, the salad lacked color for me to I added red bell pepper and slivered carrots. Sorry, I won't be making this salad again, but I'll keep the recipe for the marinade.
