Cheesy Baked Cauliflower

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
It sounded really good, but it really wasn't to our liking. I followed the recipe exactly.

Pineapple Cookies II

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
These were not good at all. I love pineapple cookies. Unfortunately, I clicked on this recipe by mistake and ended up making these. Will not use this recipe again. Definately needs more sugar and tastes too much shortening. For those thinking about making these definately cut back the shortening. Better yet, use another pineapple cookie recipe. Too bad I had no choice but to let dh take these to work...I'm ashamed.

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
Definite keeper! Wonderful for those quick evening snack to satisfy the sweet tooth. I took the advise of others and 1/2 the butter...perfect!

Grilled Tilapia with Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
For someone who is learning to eat fish I have to say this was pretty good. My only complaint was the strong taste of the cilantro vs the delicate flavors of everything else. So when I do make this again I may either cut the cilantro in half of leave it out all together.

Chicken Souvlaki Gyro Style

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
I absolutely loved this!!! I didn't have the pita - so I made them. I didn't have the greek seasonings - so I had to look for a recipe from my favorite recipe site (allrecipes). I didn't have any balsamic vinaigrette, but I did have a a rasberry vinaigrette dressing that I used and added balsamic vinegar. I don't like olives and I didn't have pepperoncini or feta. No biggie because it still turned out fabulous! I had to laugh because as my husband was grilling the chicken he was commenting on how he didn't like the smell (blah, blah) and he didn't think he'd like it. As we were finishing up dinner he commented on how he really like it. He, he, he! We served it with grilled zucchini. Then had it for lunch the next day and I plopped the zucchini in the pita. This will definately become a bi-monthly recipe!

Blackberry Cobbler II

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
This is a wonderfully delicious and easy recipe. The dough part was the perfect texture, flavor, and sweetness. The berry mixture on the other hand was way to sweet. I wish I'd listened to another poster and start w/ half the amount of sugar and add if necessary. It really was way to sweet. It did receive rave reviews at the 4th of July party though. I used last year's blackberries from my bush that I'd froze. When I do make this again I will cut the sugar in half for the berry mixture (if making it for home I'll do splenda) and go from there. Definetely leave the amount of sugar in the dough. I also added cinnamon to both the berry & dough mixture along with nutmeg & vanilla extract to the dough. I don't own a cast-iron skillet so I transferred a very hot berry mixture (I didn't even bring it to a boil) to a pyrex dish.

Cheddar Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
This is definately a staple recipe in our home. I'm not a fan of beans so I leave them out. Often times I'll cook up chicken (diced - partially frozen for easier dicing) add taco seasoning, water, and rice for easier cleanup. Then I'll finally add in 1/2 the cheese just before putting it into the tortilla. Great week night dinner. I always have leftovers which freeze great for workday lunches.

Pork Chops Stuffed with Smoked Gouda and Bacon

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
I really enjoyed this recipe. Different from the everyday norm. It was very flavorful and moist (11-12 min total). I did add diced gala apples to the cheese mixture. I do believe it will make a monthly rotation at my home. Thanks for the great recipe!

Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
Great concept and execution. I was even able to make it a lighter version. I used the reduced sugar Devil's Food Cake Mix, substituted applesauce for the oil, and used the reduced sugar cream cheese frosting. DH loved it! My only suggestion is put the cherries more towards the middle to bottom of the cupcake because if they are towards the top...the top tends to collapse.

Stuffed Pork Chops III

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
WONDERFUL! Flavorful and not dry at all. I saved some time by using stovetop stuffing to stuff the chops. I also used an entire can @14oz of beef broth, put some stuffing in with the broth, and simmered it all for 30 min. uncovered. I had it with green beans and twice baked potatoes (I had frozen). I will definately put this in my normal rotation. I really enjoyed this meal!

Chicken Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
Pretty good. I made the crust which came from another pot pie recipe from this site (doesn't affect this rating). I did add some thyme and garlic powder for extra flavor. I wish I'd added another can of soup mix because it turned out a little dry. It did have a nice flavor though. After making a couple changes I'd make this again.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
Wonderful! I received many compliments. I was happy to use up the many blackberries from my bush. The cinnmon chips were great too. Hint: the flour works better than the whole wheat flour tortillas.

Pizza Dough II

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
Pretty good. I followed the recipe and made three crusts. I froze two and they still rose in the freezer. I'm still looking for a little more flavorful crust. Also I'd like something that doesn't rise up in the middle when I precook the crust for a few minutes on a pizza stone before adding the toppings.

Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
Very good- flavorful and moist. I don't recommend using the breadcrumbs, as other suggested, if you plan on putting the cream of mushroom soup over them. I did thin out the soup with some milk.

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
FANTASTIC! Great flavor. My only complaint is I would like to make the skins more crispy on the outside. Hubby liked these so well that he asked for them for Thanksgiving Day.

Apple-Berry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
Fantastic! A great tasting pie. I made some very minor modifications though. I used a little lemon juice on the apples to keep them from browning after cut. Instead of on 1 C sugar, I used 1 C Splenda and 1/2 C sugar and put in some cinnamon as well. I actually forgot to add the butter pats before putting on the top crust- I don't care because it was still great! To top off the pie I brushed the crust with water and sprinkled sugar atop the pie. I did cover the crust the first 20 min to reduce the browness of the edges. The filling was nice and thick and juices weren't running everywhere when you cut a piece. Having the apples in the recipe definately reduced having all the blackberry seeds in one bite which was nice.

Shredded Beef Chimichangas

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
Not too bad. The meat didn't have as much flavor as I had anticipated. I used my pressure cooker to brown the meat and cooked it in the juices. If I make this again after cooking in the pressure cooker & shredding the meat I'd put everything in a pan and boil down the juices for a more concentrated flavor. I may use taco seasoning as some others had suggested along with mixing some of the cheese in with the meat before putting in the tortillas. Definately a work in process, but it does give you something to work with.

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2008
I have to say the recipe is super easy to make. I did cut the butter down to a little over 1/2 a stick. I also used splenda in with the cream cheese mixture opposed to sugar and reduced fat crescent rolls. I wasn't that impressed with the taste, but my husband said it wasn't bad. So it went to the neighborhood cookout. People loved it and raved about it. My plan was to trash it so I was quite suprised.
