Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2008
We weren't too impressed with this. It had some spice to it, but not a lot of flavor.

My Mom's Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
This was quite yummy! I liked the flavor the wine added, but it did cause the breading to get a little soggy. I served it with Candied Carrots and a Romaine salad. I will be making this again. Thanks!

Classic Waffles

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
These were good. They didn't crisp up as much as I was hoping though. They also soaked up maple syrup like crazy. The batter was enough for 4 restaraunt size Belgian waffles.

Crispy Orange Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2008
This was good, but the orange sauce from the Asian Orange Chicken on this site is much better! I think we'll stick to that sauce. Thanks!

Sesame Green Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2008
These were pretty good. I did add a couple of teaspoons of garlic as other recommended. The sesame seeds gave them a nice "nutty" flavor. I think without the garlic they would have been pretty bland though. I did cook them for a shorter amount of time than called for, since I don't like my beans mushy. They also reheated pretty well, which suprised me!

New Potatoes with Caper Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
I guess this is going to be a 4 1/2 star for us. My husband gave it a 4 and I thought it was a 5. I didn't have any white wine vinegar, so I ended up using balsamic, otherwise followed the recipe. This was very good, and we will make it again. Thanks for the recipe Michelle!

Broccoli Beef I

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
We like this a lot. I used some rib-eye steak, beef base instead of broth, and after reading some other reviews I doubled the garlic and almost tripled the fresh ginger. I also added some slices of onion with the broccoli. Served over medium grain white rice.

Peanut Butter Bars II

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
Both my husband and I thought these were very good. I thought that the chocolate chip topping could be reduced or even left off, but he liked it just as written. Since I didn't have a full bag of peanut butter cups (Easter candy left-overs) I made just a half batch in an 8x8" pan, and ended up baking a good 10 minutes longer than called for since they were still jiggly at 25 minutes. Thanks for the recipe!

Zucchini and Corn Topped with Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
I'd say 3 1/2 stars as is. I thought this was a little bland and that there was too much cheese. If I was to make this again, I think I would use fresh garlic, instead of powder and cut back the cheese by at least half. It is a very pretty dish though!

Baked Ziti IV

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
We like this very much. My 14 month old loved it! I made the recipe as stated, except for subbing ground venison for the beef/sausage. This is going into our supper rotation. Thanks for the recipe!

Sweet Corn Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2008
We were looking to recreate the spoon bread from Don Pablos, but this just wasn't quite it. I followed the recipe as stated, but it wasn't as sticky as I thought it would be. It was good, but I'm going to keep looking.

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2008
This was very good. I reduced the heat in it since we aren't into really spicy food. I cut the hot sauce in half and left out the peppers. It was still a bit hot, so next time I think I'll cut back on the cayenne pepper too. I cooked it on high for 6 hours, then pulled the meat, added cumin and paprika as another reviewer recommended and then cooked it on low for another 3 hours. We served it in soft shell tacos with Mexican Rice II and Sweet Corn Cake!

Vickie's Beer Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2008
This was good, but Tastefully Simple's bread is better. I'm going to try and make it again and increase the sugar to 1/2 c. as another reviewer recommended. Thanks for the recipe!

Magic Cookie Bars II

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
I'm not a coconut eater, but this got a 5 Star rating from my husband. The only thing he didn't like was the the crust wasn't crsip/firm enough.

Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
This wasn't that great. The Parmesan cheese was overwhelming. That was all we could taste, and it was just too much. The only change I made was to use chicken stock instead of vegetable stock, otherwise I followed the recipe. It took around 1 hour to incorporate all of the stock into the risotto. This was a big disappointment for the time-commitment I put into this dish. Also, it makes a lot. You could easily serve 6-8 people with this dish. If you are going to give this a try, I highly recommend reducing the Parmesan cheese.

Spinach Cheddar Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
These were okay. They were kind of bland. Not bad, but not great. I think maybe some garlic would perk them up? Also, the cheese caused them to stick to my muffin tin a bit. I had to use a knife and run around the edges to get the muffins to come out. I'm going to dry out the leftover muffins and use them in a dressing recipe I have that normally calls for cornbread and baking powder biscuits. N * R

Chicago Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
Quite good. We served this with Hawaiian sweet bread and carrots. I was happy to find a dip that didn't use a seasoning packet in it. Thanks for the recipe!

Croutons

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
Who knew croutons would be so darn easy. We had some leftover three-cheese bread from Panera that was going stale. I cut it up, tossed in a ziploc bag as another reviewer recommended, poured the butter in and tossed. Put on a couple cookie sheets and baked it up! I did turn the croutons half-way through baking, and the cheese bread took much longer than the 15 minutes. We've already ate half of the batch just snacking!

Fresh Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
Excellent cookie! I had some fresh ginger left over from an asian dish I was making and decided to go looking for a cookie recipe. Very glad I found this one! I made the cookies slightly larger - I used a 2 tbsp. measuring spoon - and ended up with 2 dozen. Baked just a bit longer too, about 18 minutes. They are best after they have cooled, since the flavors don't come out as well when they are fresh out of the oven. I also used the tip of freezing my ginger before grating on my mircoplaner. Worked great!

Refreshing Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
I was a little disappointed with this recipe. It was bland, and after refrigerating for a few hours the dressing became quite runny.
