World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2008
My first attempt at lasagna and I could not have picked a better recipe! It was easy, it was delicious and it was a family hit. I can not wait to make this again. I following tips from other reviewers, such as not cooking the noodles and just soaking them, as well as not cooking the sauce. I made it the night before, as I was cooking that night's dinner and let the lasagna sit in the fridge until the next evening, popping it in the oven 1.5 hours prior to dinner. I had to cook it longer, since it was cold from the refrigerator. The oinly thing I will do different next time is use shredded mozzarella, rather than sliced. It was difficult to make sure it spread evenly, which is an OCD thing in my part, probably. Definitely a keeper.

Christmas Red and Green Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
I liked, not loved, it but no one else in my family did. I was the only dish still full at the end of dinner. I ate it as a in-between meals meal but ended up throwing over half of it away. Will not be making it again.

Mimi's Giant Whole-Wheat Banana-Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
I made these for breakfasts, since my 16-year old daughter wanted something healthier than cereal or oatmeal. I thought they were so moist and light and tasty. The banana and strawberry combination was perfect and the hint of cinnamon was just right. I actually have not made these in a while and am printing this recipe right now to go shopping for the ingredients. I'm craving these for a morning treat. I feel comfortable giving these to my 21 month old, as well, as a nice alternative to his usual of bananas and a Nutrigrain Bar.

Super Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
OMG, this was awesome. I have made this several times now and it actually gets my family up out of bed early on the weekends. It reminds me of the breakfasts my mom used to make and it is a regular staple in my house now. So easy and soooooo decadently delicious.

Sauerkraut Pork Supper

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
I really enjoyed this dish. The strong flavors complimented the pork wonderfully and I loved the veggies as a side dish. The brown sugar did not make the meal "sweet". Maybe it just mellowed out the kraut flavor? I will definitely make this again, as the whole family loved it and that ranks it high in my book.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
I did not care for this dish. The pork chops were not flavorful enough and the sauce was rather sweet/bland for my tastes. I like bold flavors so really, it is just a matter of personal tastes, I'm sure.

Sea Bass Cuban Style

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
I thought this recipe was pretty tasty. I did enjoy the different flavors in the dish, with a little tang every time you bit into a green olive but I did not LOVE it. So... 4 it is. It's definitely not something I'd send back. It's just not something I'd order twice.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
This was a really easy, quick and delicious Ham and Potato Soup. I rated it a four only because it did not wow me enough to want to make it again.

Thai Pineapple Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
An excellent dish. I'm not sure if I did something wrong, since my sauce was red but I assume it was because the curry paste was red and I only used one can of cononut milk, as several reviewers suggested. I also thickened the sauce with flour and water, since I enjoy a thicker sauce. The flavors were wonderful and everyone loved it. It made plenty so we had leftovers but those leftovers barely made it through the night as everyone nibbled on plate after plate all through the evening. I did not have bamboo shoots or water chestnuts but I actually missed them since I know the crunch would have been a nice touch to the dish. I'm definitely going to make this again, as I have had multiple requests from my family since making it last week. I'm surprised that even my 21 month old liked it, since he is a really picky eater. Anything that gets him to eat is a keeper!

Curried Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
Wow. I made this and I needlessly worried my family would not like but they LOVED it. I made it exactly as instructed in the recipe, except I put in considerably more curry powder, as I enjoy a stronger flavor. My household consists of me, my husband, two teens, one toddler and my elderly, ill father-in-law. Every single one of them had seconds or, in my son's case, thirds! Easy to make and delicious! I will definitely be making this often.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2008
These were the first biscuits I've ever made and not only was it a super easy recipe but they turned out wonderfully moist and fluffy. I would definitely recommend this recipe. I made these biscuits with the Super Sausage Gravy by Bob Evans and I've had multiple requests since then, with rave reviews everytime. Even my family members who don't like "breakfast" items love it when I make my biscuits and gravy!

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
Let me start by advising that everyone in my family was skeptical about this recipe. Atrichoke? Spinach? Ewwww! :) But, me being the experimental type, stuck to my guns and made it anyway. It was a success! Even with their negative expectations, they liked it, even my 1 year old. Everyone went back for seconds. I would definitely make it again. This time, my family won't give me such a hard time.

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
This chili was okay but I found it kind of bland compared to chili I've enjoyed in the past. I had to add more chili power, garlic salt and onion powder until the taste was near my expectations.

Glazed Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
I worried about this recipe, considering so many people had so many mixed reviews. I read that it was not flavorful, it was dry, it was mushy, it was too sweet... etc. I am glad I stuck with my gut instinct and made the recipe anyway. Everyone in the family, including the 18 month old, loved this meatloaf. It was moist, it was deliciously flavorful and the glaze was deliciously sweet and tangy. I'm not even a real meatload person and I loved it. I doubled the recipe so I could have left-overs for the next week but they only stayed in there for 3 days since my husband and son kept bugging me about when they could have more meatloaf!! I will definitely make this recipe again - on a regular basis.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
Omigod, these brownies are the best. They are rich, with a deep chocolatey flavor, without being too sweet and overwhelming. I've made this recipe a few times, with and without the icing and they never last long. My son raves to all of his friends about his mother's brownies and my daughter wants to sell them at school! :) This recipe definitely stays in the front of my recipe box.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
This recipe is absolutely heavenly. I have made two variations now, based on another reviewer. Very Moist and Chocolatey, without being overly sweet. My whole family loved it. I'm going to keep experiementing with this easy, delicious and versatile recipe. Update: The original was my favorite until I experimented a little, coming up with a few personal favorites: I used white chocolate chips and put strawberry pie filling in the bundt pan before filling with cake mix. I topped the cake with rest of the strawberry filling and sifted some powdered sugar over it. Very pretty. More importantly, delicious. Don't be afraid to play with this cake recipe. No matter what I do with it, everybody loves it. I've tried different flavored "chips", different puddings.. it all works. Next, I'm thinking of adding small caramel chunks to the cake mix and topping with dark chocolate slivers. Like I said, endless possibilities.

Chris' Bay Area Burger

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
I've made these burgers twice now and everyone loves them. I have never had burgers disappear so quickly or so many people ask me for the recipe. Will definitely keep this one in my recipe box. I don't think I can ever eat plain burgers again.
