Cheesy Sour Cream and Salsa Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
This dip was a hit at our New Year's Eve party. I was looking for something different to try and came across this recipe. After reading some reviews I made the following changes: Used 8 ounces sour cream and 8 ounces cream cheese. Drained the Rotel tomatoes and used 2 cups of cheddar cheese. I also used the entire package of dry ranch salad dressing. I baked in the oven at 350 for 20 mins. Next time I may even add some bacon pieces. Will be making again.

Tortellini Minestrone

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
I made this soup for my niece as she was looking for something different. This dish was a big hit with her family and friends. I have been asked for this recipe by several people who tried this dish. My changes were: I used Spicy Jalapeno Chicken Sausage chopped in bite size pieces, used chicken broth instead of beef (she does not eat beef), I used tomato sauce and fresh cheese tortellini. This will definitely go into my rotation.

Minestrone Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
I got rave reviews for this soup and was asked by many for the recipe. The changes I made were: I used chicken broth vice beef broth. I used tomato sauce instead of ketsup. and I used fresh tortellini instead of frozen. I used chicken jalapeno sausage links, sliced without the casing. It give the soup just a little kick to warm the tummy on a cold winter day. Will definitely make again.

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
My Oh My! What an awesome recipe! It was absolutely yummy. I had five thin sliced chicken breasts so I placed appx one tablespoon mixture on the chicken breast, after I had sprinkled garlic, garlic and onion powder over the breast. I used crumbled herb and feta cheese for more flavor and I used a 10 oz. package of steamed spinach. Instead of bacon, I used proscuitto wrapped around the breast. Cooked it covered at 350 for 30 mins., uncovered and upped the temp to 375 for the last 15 mins. This is the best! Will be making again, and again.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
This is an excellent cornbread. Made it as directed in recipe. I did, however, find that it was more of a cake like consistency than what I have had for cornbread at restaurants. Will do again but I also am looking for cornbread with more of a crumbly consistency. Any ideas?

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
Took this to a birthday party last night and I got rave reviews. After reading other reviews, here are the changes I made. I added a package of taco seasoning to the beef while cooking. I also added some cumin. I used salsa instead of taco sauce and used mexican cheese instead of colby cheese. I used two tortillas together spreading the refried beans betweeen both tortillas. Because of all the reviews I thought this dish would be a lot juicier that it was. I do not think a double layer of tortillas was necessary because I thought it was a little to dry. Will make again using only one layer of tortillas.

Hot Buffalo Chicken, Bacon, and Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2009
I served this at a get together last night and everyone enjoyed it. I did not double the hot sauce only because one of the individuals does not care for anything too spicy. I did add some fried onions on top of the chicken. Very good will make again.

Black Bean Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
OMG what can I say. This was outstanding. I made this soup for a birthday party last night and everyone went crazy over it. The only change I made was to use 2 - 10 oz cans of Rotel tomatoes instead of 1 - 14.5 can cause that is what I had on hand and I did not want to waste the leftover tomatoes. Each person added freshly grated Parmesan cheese to their liking and I had sour cream available for those who wanted it. My only suggestion is, if you do not like hot (spicy) soup, either decrease the amount of cayenne pepper or do not use at all. Will definitely make again and again. Thanks for the GREAT recipe.

Super Duper Bean Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
I made this bean salad for a birthday party last night and it was a big hit. Everyone loved it. I would not change anything in this recipe because I think the amounts are right on. The only thing I did was to add black olives to the salad. It makes alot so it would be great for a big gathering. Will be making again.

I had some spinach and button mushrooms I needed to use up so I searched the site and found this recipe. My dh and I loved this side dish. The only changes I made was: used fresh spinach which I steamed prior to adding to the sauteed mushrooms. Did not have portobello mushrooms so used the button mushrooms. Did not have red wine opened so I used white wine and added a llittle extra grated Parmesan cheese. Will definitely make again. YUM......

Dinah's Baked Scallops

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
Loved this recipe. I may be slightly bias because I love scallops. After reading many of the reviews, I made the following changes: used Italian Panko bread crumbs, used minced fresh garlic adding to the butter to saute, only used 1/4 cup butter, that was plenty, 2 T. white wine and 1 1/2 T. lemon juice. I also broiled for a few minutes to brown the bread crumbs. Yummy.....

Spinach Phyllo Cups

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
Absolutely delightful! Made these for a birthday party last night and they were gone in no time. Everyone wanted the recipe. After reading reviews, I made the following changes: added more garlic, used Garlic/Feta Herb (6 oz pkg), added 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese to mixture, topped with finely diced Roma tomatoes (used 2) and topped with shredded Moz. cheese. Next time I will buy four boxes of the phyllo shells because three is not enough. Will be making this recipe in the near future.

Fra Diavolo Sauce With Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
This dish was very testy, although I do wish the sauce was a little thicker. I think I will add some tomato sauce or paste next time. I did add some sauteed, chopped zucchini, reduced the red pepper to 1/4 t., used a pound of shrimp and a pound of bay scallops. Added a splash of white wine to the scallops when I sauteed them.

Meatloaf with Italian Sausage

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
This dish was verry tasty. It was a nice change from our usual favorite meatloaf I make. Was looking for a different taste and I was not dissappointed. I used a pound of bulk sweet Italian sausage, used Italian Panko Bread crumbs instead of the hot wheat cereal and added some garlic seasoning to the meat mixture. I spread Sweet Baby Ray's Vidalia Onion B/Q Sauce over the top before placing in the oven. Those are the only changes I made to the recipe. Will make again.
