Tomato Enchilada Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2011
THis was delish and easy! Only changes I made was that I used whole wheat tortillas. I do think that it could use a little more sauce, but that is just me. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

Allie's Delicious Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
CHEESY MAC & BEEF! Yummy! Instead of the ham, I added 1 pound of extra lean ground beef that I cooked with 1/2 white onion. I used whole wheat rotini pasta and 7 ounces of shredded cheddar and 7 ounces of shredded monterey jack. After I mixed in the ground beef/onion mix, I put it in a 9x13 casserole dish and topped with a little bit more shredded cheese, bread crumbs and sprinkled w/paprika. Next time maybe I will add some mustard. All in all a great meal! Thanks!

Beef 'n' Green Bean Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
Wonderful, easy and delish! The only differences I made was 1) I used 1 TB minced garlic instead of garlic salt. 2.) I used an 8x8 glass dish and put 4 triangles on the bottom and then topped it with the remaining 4 triangles. 3.) I ommited the green pepper as 1 of our kids has an aversion to them. Other than that, I followed exactly. The entire family loved this! Thanks for sharing:)

Washboard Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
OMG. Seriously, this is one of the best,yet simplest, cookies I have EVER had. My husband was stuffing his mouth with them and simultaneously asking me to make more. And he is not a big cookie person! I chose this recipe because I had everything on hand and it was quick. Only difference I made was that I added a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon. SO yummy! Thanks for this keeper!

Hearty Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
First, WHY do people say this is great and then give it 3 stars?!? Anyways, this was terrific. Yes, I did make some changes. I used 98% lean white ground turkey. I added a can of "no salt added" diced tomatoes (drained) and added a little bit of diced baby carrots. I did add about a little less than 1/2 a packet of taco seasoning. Because I added the tomatoes I reduced the ketchup to about 3/4 of a cup. I browned the turkey and onion in a pan and then added the turky and onion to a crockpot with all the other ingredients and cooked on low for 4 hours. I served with Jiffy cornbread. My husband and 3 kids (7, 6 and 5) RAVED. It was SO delicious! Thanks for sharing:)

Crescent Pizza Pockets

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
CHICKEN PARMESAN Pockets anyone? This recipe is great and so easy to make your own. I baked some chicken nuggets and when heated through I cut them up into small pieces and subbed them for the pepperoni. I did not even bother trying to fold these diagonally as 2 triangles makes a nice and easy workable rectangle. I spread the sauce on half of the rectangle and sprinkled sauce with Italian Seasoning and topped with chicken pieces and finished with the mozzarella. Poked each one twice with a fork and sprinkled w/parm cheese. 11 minutes is all mine needed and I cut each rectangle diagonally. I used reduced fat crescent rolls and served with steamed broccoli. The husband and our 3 kids (7, 6 & 4) LOVED it and asked for more. Wish I had made a second batch!

Italian Chicken and Chickpeas

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
Ok, i am not sure how I am the only one who is mentioning that yes this recipe is good but it is WAYYYY TOO SPICY! I followed the recipe to a "t" and my 8, 6 & 4 year olds mouths were burning. So were my husband and I's and we like spicy food. My bottle says "crushed red pepper" and there are a lot of seeds mixed in with the flakes. I am not sure if it is just my kind of red pepper, but WOW, this was almost not edible because of the heat. THe flavor was good though and I WILL make again as my kids love garbanzo beans, but I will omit the red pepper next time.

Broccoli Chicken Braid

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
This was great!! It makes a wonderful presentation and is suprisingly easy. I did do 2 BIG changes though. I omitted the mayo and the dill from the mixture. I did not have dried or fresh dill but decided to get creative. I steamed frozen broccoli so it made the filling moist on its own so I did not worry about the filling being too dry. Then, I took some light mayonaise, a small amount of dill pickle juice and a splash of lemon and made a "dip". I served about 2 TB of this on the side and it was a huge hit! Great recipe and I will make again!

I followed the direcetions exactly and my husband and 3 kids gobbled this up! I was very hesitant because tomato soup, really?? But let me tell you, it works! We make this 2 to 3 times a month. Definitely a keeper!

BBQ Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
This was really good after I made a few changes. I used 1/3 cup of onions instead of 1/4. Also this recipe was missing something so I added 1/3 cup diced green bell pepper and it added the perfect flavor and color! Also, I used a box of Jiffy cornbread mix and prepared according to the Jiffy box and then poured over. Also, I used KC Masterpiece Original BBQ sauce and it came out perfect! One more tip, if you use a 9x13 casserole, make sure to add a little extra milk or water to the jiffy cornbread mix so it will be thinner and cover the entire casserole. If not, you will have to use two boxes and that will be too much cornbread!

BBQ Chili Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
This was pretty good. My family really liked it but I think it was missing something. I think it could have had more spice to it. Maybe more chili powder? I will use this recipe again but I will add more kick to it next time.
