Slow Cooked Beef Fajitas

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2012
This is an awesome easy recipe, however, what seems to have made it so awesome is the fajita mix I have used since the first time I made it. I have run out and used the regular packaged mix but it isn't near as good. So I hate to post anything to try and plug any product but if you can I would use Bolner's Fiesta chicken fajita seasoning. I have to order it online cause it is from Texas but it lasts a long time and I will buy a couple little jars of it and give as gifts along with the recipe to nieghbors, teachers or whoever I might have to give a small gift to sometime.

Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Shells

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
I thought these were really good. My boys weren't crazy about them because of the broccoli of course, so if you have a picky one, they may not like them but the rest of us really like it. They were pretty easy to make and I liked it with fire roasted tomato and garlic sauce over the top.

Jo-Ann's Power Bars

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
Well, I added chocolate chips and dried cranberries and left out the nuts. The kids absolutely loved these. I was surprised and it is a nice healthy snack for them. Highly reccommend.

Cheesy Potato and Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
I was concerned about the country gravy mix making this soup too rich. It turned out to be really good but I did add extra milk to thin it a bit. I would probably add more veggies next time I make it as well.

Blackberry BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
I used Chinese five spice since I didn't have cayenne pepper to give it some spice. This worked well since it is an ingredient used in plum chicken. I cut down on the ketchup since others suggested it and was glad I did. I also added some honey as well. It turned out really well. My family enjoyed it.

Asian Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
This is a great recipe. I didn't have any sesame oil so I made it without and was still good. Made double the sauce though cause my kids like over their rice.

Mexican Chicken Burrito Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
Whenever I have to take a meal to a family, this is it. It is always a sure hit. It goes a long way. You can make it more or less spicey to suit your taste. This pan used to give my family of 5 two dinners and some lunches, but now that my boys are teenagers, I am lucky to have it make it last for two dinners!

Filipino Lumpia

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
This is awesome! I have been given great lumpia by a filipino friend but he was not willing to share the recipe! I was so happy to find a recipe to rival his!

Shortbread Cookies II

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
This is a great cookie! I realized the recipe is basically the same as one I make every xmas, however, it calls to put choc. chips and walnuts in and then you dip them in powdered sugar and dip one end into melted chocolate. Very rich but very good! They are better if kept in the fridge if made this way. However, they are a good shortbread cookie just made as it is. My recipe calls to put 4 TBLS of cold water in it when you have creamed the butter and sugar, vanilla etc. Not sure as that makes any difference in the final cookie or not. Might be a bit more flaky.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: May 29, 2008
These are great and easy! I pull out the bread machine and keep making batches the whole day, stocking my freezer with rolls to keep my kids happy. Place in a tin or 10 in a ziplock gallon bag to place in pan when ready to cook. Bakes best in glass pan. I like to bake at 375, and if frozen, I put them in as the oven is preheating to help them rise more. Cooking time can be a fine line, too little is doughy in center but once browned they can get pretty crispy around the egdes. Also, I just use butter cause I never buy margarine, put it in my quisinart cut into pats, throw in the cinn. and b. sugar, pulse to blend. Then crumble and spread around on the rolls before rolling. I found that sprinkling the filling on the butter, alot of it falls out when cutting the rolls apart.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2012
super easy and good. i made with rotissire chicken from costco and used the chicken broth instead of water like some else suggested. Could be a good meal if you end up with alot of leftover turkey meat. i added vegetable, carrots, celery and corn, it seemed to need a bit more then just chicken and for us, it enhanced the flavor.

Sloppy Joes I

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
I grew up with this but we called it spoonburger. My mom has been making it for more than 50 years! It is definitely a different taste than sloppy joe,not quite as tomato-ey, but we ate it over mashed potatoes and that is still the way I make it for my family and it is a definite favorite!!!

Candied Pecans

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2014
These are very tasty! They can be eaten on their own, or I chop them and put them on top of my zucchini bread and muffins. I made them originally for green salads but they were two cinnamon sweet and didn't go over well for that.

Cream Puff Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2012
I actually just used the cream filling for a recipe i needed help with, boston cream pie/cake. I ended up making a 9 inch yellow cake cutting into half horizontally. I made a nine inch cake thin mocha chocolate layer and the chocolate glaze from the actual recipe. Made an awesome and tasty layered cake

My Kid's Favorite Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
This is a good recipe and my kids liked it. I would definitely slow cook it for a long time to get the chops tender. I fried the onions in the drippings and some of the beer as well cause we like them crispy but after slow cooking they kinda cooked away anyway. Can try frying and then adding them to the top of the chops when they are done. Served with mashed potatoes with ranch dressing in them and was a hit.

Mocha Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
A hit with even my picky eaters who don't usually eat breads and cookies. I did add a bit extra coffee flavor as the others had suggested. Very good.

Raspberry Lemon Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
These are really good but I do agree with others that they need a bit more lemon or flavor of some sort added to them as they can be a bit bland.

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2014
These are a great way to use up all that zucchini your gardener friend keeps giving you! My husband is on a diet to make your metabolism work better, so I tried to adjust the recipe for him by adding oats blended to a powder instead of flour, and egg whites. I left out the mozzarella but kept the parmesan, and it seemed to wet, so I grated a white sweet potato and it added nicely flavor. I am sure made the original way is even better! Everyone liked them.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2012
I only give this 4 instead of a 5 because my family still liked the canned better. I thought it tasted more authentic and delicious!
