Reva's Potato Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2014
This was great. Right after blending, I aded a bottle of beer and 1/2 of cup of half-n-half. Now it's a soup to die for!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
This is a pretty good recipe as written, but I find that the batter is almost too thick. I increase the milk to 1 cup and it works out much better that way!

Lemon Cream Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
The taste of these cupcakes is phenomenal -- but 25-30 minutes is WAY too long to bake them. I tried my first batch at 18 minutes and they were still a little too dark for me. I would start checking them at 15 minutes. You *just* want the toothpick to come out dry -- this is the secret to great baked goods. Don't overbake!

Spinach Mushroom and Ricotta Fettuccine

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
This was just okay. I had all of the ingredients in the house, which is why I tried it. But it was bland and I didn't really care for the texture of the finished product. I won't be making this again.

Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
This was amazing! I used ground chicken, added one chopped onion and omitted the corn. But otherwise, I followed the directions to a T. A definite keeper -- my dh couldn't stop raving about it! I've been trying to find "the" chili recipe over the past year or so and have tried several from this site. This is the best one (including both chicken and beef recipes) out of the whole bunch!

Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
This was really good. My family recently became vegetarians and I'm always on the lookout for good meals. This one definitely made the cut. The fennel was an amazing (and unexpected) addition. This one is going into permanent rotation. Thank you!

Refried Black Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
I love these! I'm not a big fan of pinto beans, so using black beans for this recipe was inspired, IMHO! I agree with other reviewers, though, that it calls for too much liquid smoke. A couple of drops is plenty. Try is paired with Chicken Enchiladas I and Mexican Rice recipes!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
These are wonderful! Try scaling it down to 4 servings -- that was just the right size for my family of 2 adults and 2 children. And we still had a few leftovers. The only thing I did different was to roast my garlic before adding. Roasting garlic is really easy, by the way. Just take a whole head of garlic and place it in a large piece of aluminum foil. Drizzle with a little olive oil and salt and pepper. Completely close the foil around garlic and throw in a 400 degree oven for about 30-45 minutes. It doesn't have to be perfect. Just try squeezing the garlic -- if it feels soft, it's done!

Broccoli and Sausage Cavatelli

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
I love, love, love this recipe! I've made it many times. Although I have made some changes. For one, I bake the sausage on a cookie sheet in the oven. It takes about 30 minutes on 350. While that is cooking, I start the pasta and broccoli. I cook those in separate dishes, because when I added the frozen broccoli to the pasta water the first time, it cooled it off too much and took too long to get back to a boil! Also, I replace half the olive oil with butter for a richer flavor, use fresh broccoli, omit the parmesan cheese and add parsley. In any event, this is a great starter dish to taylor to your tastes. A quick, satisfying and tasty dinner!

BLT Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
This is delicious! I was looking for a pasta salad recipe to make with dinner last night and looked at several BLT salads. This one looked the most interesting. So I made this one without the chicken as a side dish for burgers. It was great! I followed the recipe exactly (well, except for cutting down the water a little) and thought that the bbq sauce added a nice little kick! I told my guests that it was my first time making the salad and they all agreed, it's a keeper!

Jordan Marsh Style Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
My family and I did not care for these -- and I even replaced the shortening with butter. They were just very, very bland. My daughters, who normally beg for blueberry muffins, wouldn't even eat them. Try the Blueberry Cream Muffin recipe from this site. Soooo much better!

Cinnamon Raisin Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2007
Excellent recipe! I used my bread maker to do the hard part for me. Then after rolling it out (minus the raisins) and putting it in the bread pans, I let it rise overnight. That way, I was able to put it in the oven in the morning and have fresh, warm bread. I baked mine at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Just let the bread come to room temp first before putting in the oven. Thanks for the great recipe!

Amish Bread

I was so not impressed with this recipe. Tasted very flat to me! I want something that has some flavor. This wasn't it.

Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2007
This is SO good! I took a couple of reviewers suggestions and substituted 1/2 of the mayo with sour cream. I used a (9oz) bag of fresh baby spinach in place of the frozen. And I also used an Italian blend of cheeses and added 3 cloves of roasted garlic. I also made this in my crockpot, which was perfect because the dip stayed hot the whole time. My guests *raved* about this dish and asked for the recipe. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for the great recipe!

Angel Food Cupcakes

Reviewed: May 19, 2007
These are perfect for a low-cal, low-fat snack. Just the right portion too! I cut up strawberries and top the cupcakes with them. My daughters love them!

Mediterranean Chicken with Eggplant

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2007
We love the eggplant sauce, but didn't care for the chicken -- it came out very dry. We now use this recipe sans chicken as a great sauce for grilled meats!
