Grandma's Sweet Hubbard Squash Custard Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
This is almost exactly like my mom's recipe. She has been making it for years (me, only two but I still think of it as mine). I love this pie. I spice it just like pumpkin pie, and no one can tell the difference until I tell them. We call it pumpkin pie, and this is the only version we make at thanksgiving! I use condensed milk instead of cream, and white sugar instead of brown. It's creamier than pumpkin, which makes it better :)

Waikiki Meatballs

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
I took the advice of others and baked the meatballs at 350 for 20 minutes. I let the sauce simmer in the meantime, with the green pepper included (we like it more cooked than raw). We loved the flavor of the meatballs with the sauce. We like pineapple, but all agreed that the chunks were a little bit overwhelming...next time I will try tidbits.

Slumgullion

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2010
With the changes I made, this was a five star recipe. I cut the recipe in half, but based on other reviews, I still used 1 can tomato sauce and a whole can of stewed tomatoes for the sauce. This is what I did. I cooked 8 oz. pasta in water and browned my beef in a skillet. I have an onion hater, and a garlic hater, so I used powdered of both so they wouldn't know it was in there. :) I added a few spices to the mix, since there were many complaints of blandness-McCormick Grill seasoning, basil, a bit of brown sugar. I simmered the spices, beef and tomatos until the macaroni was done which ended up taking 20 minutes. I'm glad it took so long, though, because it gave the stewed tomatoes a chance to break down a bit. My kids gobbled this up. Even my husband went back for seconds!

Bronco Burger

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
I forgot the jalapenos at the grocery store, so I used the jar kind I had in the fridge. I also used less since I was making a mini patty for my 1 year old. Otherwise, I stuck to the recipe. This was awesome. I now have a go-to burger recipe. Simple to make, but so, so, so good.

Southwest Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
This was very good. I seasoned the chicken heavily with chili powder before cooking. after mixing everything together, I put a little bit of rice in it to soak up the juices. I was going to serve it with some rice, but then my husband and I got carried away with dipping into it with tortilla chips. Before we knew it...it was all gone. And then he requested it as a dip for a football party. That's approval from him if I ever saw it.

Pizza Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
I used whole wheat penne pasta, and I cut the recipe in half, but left the pasta at 8oz. I'm glad I did, because it wouldn't have been enough otherwise. Instead of the spaghetti sauce, ground beef, and onion, I used some leftover sauce from the World's Best Lasagna recipe on this site. It was amazing. My 1 year old couldn't get enough of it.

Tail Burner Firehouse French Fries

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
These were excellent. I used olive oil instead of butter, and only 2 tbls instead of 1/4 cup. With much chagrin, I didn't have any lemon pepper, so I had to leave it out. I cut the dried red pepper in half so the kids wouldn't bawl, and although I was worried, they gobbled them up.

No Sugar Apple Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
This is definitely more healthy than the "sugar-added" variety of apple pie, but it isn't necessarily better for diabetics, myself being one of them. Apple juice contains a lot of sugar (15 grams in half a cup RECONSTITUTED). I haven't figured out how many carbs are in a can of concentrate, but it definitely isn't a wise choice for a diabetic. That being said, this is super yummy, and doesn't need the extra calories from the sugar.

Peanut Butter Milk Shakes

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
I love peanut butter. This is amazing. I eyeballed the ingredients, but left out the sugar and added chocolate chips. Oh man...if I wasn't already married, my husband would have asked me after eating this!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
Okay, so this makes a LOT of sauce. We made this in a dutch oven while we were on a camp-out, and it turned out sooooooo good! I used a whole pound of beef, Jimmy dean Italian sausage (couldn't find sweet) dry cottage cheese in place of ricotta, a pound and a half of shredded mozzarella, and omitted the salt completely. I let this simmer for about two hours before I assembled the casserole. I soaked 20 lasagna noodles in hot water for about 30 minutes, and we ended up using 18 of them. I layered the meat, cheese, and noodles, and had one layer of ricotta right in the middle. We baked it in the 12 inch dutch oven (10 coals on bottom, and about 16 on top) for an hour, and our family couldn't get enough of it!

World's Best Pasta Sauce!

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
I made spaghetti with this, and it was really good. I didn't have any fennel seed, so I subbed a little bit of dill, and some maple syrup (be careful with the dill...too much can ruin it!) I used four large tomatoes from my garden, and crushed them myself. It was a little acidic this way, but I couldn't dock the stars for a substitution I made. All I can say is, I can't wait to try the lasagna with this!

Five Minute Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2010
Definitely take the advice of the reviewer Janinski if you are using a blender. I was skeptical if this would even work without going in the ice cream freezer, but it did. It was creamy and yummy...the perfect treat we were looking for! UPDATE: I used yogurt, like one reviewer suggested, and it was just as creamy and delish. I also added milk for an awesome (healthy!) smoothie for my 1 year old. He couldn't get enough of it! He doesn't usually like yogurt, but loves strawberries, so there ya go.

Chicken Breasts Pierre

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
UPDATE: The second time I made this, I only used two chicken breasts, but sliced them into thirds so they were thin. I then dredged them in the flour mixture, dipped them in egg, and finished them off with Panko breadcrumbs. This made the chicken quick to cook and so crispy! I left the sauce at the original amount, but next time I'm going to double it. I cooked the sauce in one pan, chicken in another, and then just added the chicken with a quick stir to coat and served. That way the breading didn't get soggy. Huge hit! ORIGINAL: This was a huge surprise for me. It has been sitting in my recipe box for a year, and I finally decided to try it. I was expecting an Italian-type dish, but was pleasantly surprised by the spicy Cuban undertones. My one year old couldn't get enough of this. I did use diced instead of stewed tomatoes, and garlic powder, since I had run out of normal garlic and didn't want to go to the store. I served it with rice, and the sauce was to die for mixed with the rice.

Gobble Up Granola Snacks

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
I liked these, especially the crunch of the little peanut bits the crunchy peanut butter added. I used puffed whole wheat cereal, old fashioned oats, and a mixture of molasses and water instead of the corn syrup. They were kind of crumbly this way, but I think it was the molasses. They tasted fantastic, though!

Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
I never put this in the oven, and it turned out great! I used frozen corn, didn't use any extra water, ommitted the tortilla chips, and used the Taco Seasoning II recipe from this site. It was amazing. We ate this all by itself, although it would be excellent served with rice.

Grilled Corn on the Cob

This was amazing. The flavor was unreal. I don't know why I ever boiled corn on the cob when I could have done this!

Chicken Rotini Stovetop Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
My only complaint of this dish was that it never thickened up. I have to say, though, that everyone was happy to lap up their spiral "soup". Very flavorful and good. I skipped the chives and used just a red pepper because that's what I had. I only used half the butter called for, and low-fat half-and-half (oops...accidentally bought that one at the store) and a full cup of a grated parmesan, asiago, and romano mix(another oops at the store). It was amazing. I hate rating a recipe after making so many changes, but now that we already tried it this way I don't know if my family will allow me to try the original recipe!

Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
The flavors in this were so yummy, but I think next time I'm going to use a different technique. It says to coat the chicken pieces in cornstarch...yeah, not so much. I found that the marinade was way too thick after coming out of the fridge, and the cornstarch ended up thickening into little globs while I cooked the chicken. It broke up somewhat after I added the chicken broth, but it wasn't very visually appealing. I only used carrots and broccoli as the veggies, but it was very good that way. I also tasted the sauce before serving and decided to add more of everything-ginger, garlic, and soy sauce. It was a bit salty, so next time i'm going to used reduced sodium soy sauce, and reduced sodium broth. I served it with brown rice spiced with ginger, and it was a hit with everyone...from my husband down to my 1-year old.
