Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
We didn't love this. The chicken to vegetable ratio seems way off to me, I probably would add two more cans of beans and twice the corn. Bell peppers too. Also seems like the oven baking is unnecessary, cheese can melt on the stove. Anyways, we didn't like this more than chicken tacos or burritos and it was the same amount of effort. Would not recommend.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
I thought this was grossly sweet and strangely spicy. Definitely distracted from an otherwise great pizza experience. Would not recommend.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2008
I've tried a few recipes for pancakes from this site and I keep coming back to this one! So much better than buttermilk!

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
These cookies had an outstanding flavor, for sure. I used crunchy peanut butter, but that was my only substitution. I had trouble getting the right consistency baking these cookies, but I followed other's suggestions, so it's not necessarily the fault of this recipe. Would definitely try to make again!

Chocolate Chip Macadamia Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Nice and chewy. Good flavor. Instead of the listed spices, I used 1 tsp. cinnamon, 0.5 tsp chai spice, and 0.5 tsp pumpkin pie spice.

Irresistible Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
I've never made pecan pie before (and I've only had it once) and this turned out perfect. I followed the advice of others and added some vanilla and cinnamon and it was great.

Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
As someone who likes my sweet potatoes sweet, these were excellent. I used apple juice because it's what I had. The brown sugar got nice and syrupy, and they reheated well. Great recipe, and I can't wait to try it with maple cream.

Pecan Pie Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
Excellent. Great taste. Everyone loved them. Make deep indents, but don't make a hole in the cookie, and don't overfill.

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
This soup was so easy! It came together real fast in a blender. I took the advice of others and added some lime juice, and left some beans to be added whole. I used fajita seasoning instead of the cumin, and added some cheese when I ate it. Excellent. The one thing I'm unhappy with (and not the recipe's fault) is that most of the flavor comes from the salsa (makes sense). Next time I make this I will get some garden fresh salsa or something, because I'm not a huge fan of sweet jar salsas.

Orange Party Punch

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
I don't care for pineapple, but people seemed to like this recipe. WARNING: I would not recommend using pineapple sherbert for this recipe because the sherbert we used had pineapple chunks which made the texture strange and the punch not so good. Stick with orange.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
These had a good pumpkin taste and an ok texture. They're not super sweet, so if you like that, sprinkle them with sugar and cinnamon, or eat them with syrup. Half a batch made me about 8 4-inch pancakes. Would definitely make again! Also, they freeze well and are excellent upon reheating.

Yumpkins

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2007
Taste good, but there is no way it would fit on a jelly roll sheet. Compromised by using a baking dish (15X8?) and it turned out more goes than cakey. Delicious still, but texture was not there.

Hot Cocoa Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
It has a weird, almost salty taste that I'm attributing to the powdered milk. I used "non-fat dry milk", but I don't know if this was correct. I will probably throw the rest of the batch out.

Easy Alfredo Sauce I

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
Right now I'm giving this 4 stars. It tasted phenomenal (I added a little garlic), but the texture wasn't quite what I wanted. I added the parmesan in 1/2 cups, but I couldn't get it all to melt down- I still had little parmesan pieces in the sauce, and it seemed a little runny. I added some cornstarch and ran it through the blender and it turned out satiny smooth and thick. Lovely. PS- this is amazing over gnocchi.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2007
This recipe was easy to make and the chicken had a great texture. My breadcrumbs didn't get quite crunchy, so maybe I would turn down the oven next time. The garlic flavor isn't strong, so add some garlic powder to the crumb mixture for more flavor.
