White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
AMAZING!! Had to use dark brown sugar as I was out of light brown, and didn't quite have enough sugar to fill 1 cup, but they still came out FANTASTIC! Try this recipe, you will not be disappointed.

Zesty Chicken Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
I thought this was just okay... glad I read the reviews and cut down on the taco seasoning, even with half a pack it was still a little much. Would probably stick with beef meatloaf in the future

Cajun Style Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2008
This meatloaf was outstanding. The first time I made it, because my andoiulle sausage came partially cooked, it was hard to crumble. The next time I made it with Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage, much easier to crumble, and it tasted just as good! Note to review readers: make sure your veggie mix is cooked into a nice thick paste before mixing with the meat, or you will have a mushy loaf! Also, if you have little ones like we do, cut the recipe in half, and make one half with a little less spice, recipe as is is a little too spicy for kids...

Easy Chili II

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
VERY very bland chili (Of course this could be guessed just by looking at the list of ingredients) If you want this to taste anything like what you would expect out of chili, be prepared to add 3 tbsp. Chili Powder, oregano and cumin, maybe some diced jalapenos, and cayenne pepper to taste. This just tasted like beef and beans with tomato flavor (wait...thats pretty much what it is!!)

Sweet and Sour Meatballs II

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
OMG! WAY to much vinegar!! The amount of vinegar called for completely ruined my sauce, had to dump it out and remake with half as much...sauce was good after this change. Really wanted to like this recipe since it got 4.5 stars, but found that the meatballs were very bland for our liking.

Super Easy Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
All I can say is - Thank goodness for reviews! I am so glad I listened to other reviews and cut down on the spices, especially the cayenne. Could be a typo, maybe the recipe should call for 2 tsp. instead of 2 tbsp., but we found it to be perfect when the amount was cut in half, and we REALLY like spicy food. Otherwise this is an excellent chili, and extremely easy to make!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: May 4, 2008
Gave it 4 stars cuz I had to change a few things to make it 5 (I hate it when people review a recipe and rate it based on what they changed! They're not rating that recipe anymore!) Don't listen to other reviews and substitute butter... you'll just have flatter cookies NOT tastier! I added 1/2 c. oats, 1 tsp. vanilla, 1 tsp. cinnamon, and halved the amount of salt...5 stars now!

New York Cheesecake I

Reviewed: May 16, 2008
Very glad I listened to other reviews and used half the amount of sour cream called for... this worked out great. Also added just a little almond extract (maybe 1/4 tsp) and am glad i did that as well, tasted great as is. Also recommend cooking 15 minutes at 400, and 45 at 200, cooks much better. Overall though, a nice cheesecake recipe, family enjoyed it.

Creamy Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: May 24, 2008
I liked this very much...would probably use half cream cheese and half ricotta or cottage cheese next time (cream cheese was a tad overpowering) but otherwisw the whole family enjoyed. Thanks for the recipe!

Glazed Meatloaf II

Reviewed: May 24, 2008
Very good glaze...I like my meatloaf recipe slightly better, so I think I'll just steal the glaze from this recipe and put it on my meatloaf! Thanks very much for submitting it!

Jeremy's Philly Steak and Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: May 24, 2008
I thought this was just OK...the cream cheese is overpowering, and, as noted by other reviewers, not really a true "Philly." But not every steak sandwich has to be a philly, however if you're going to put that word in the title, you should definitely make it true Philly Style! Thanks...

Meatloaf with Italian Sausage

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
This recipe was well-received by my family, however next time I make it I may cut down to 3 Italian sausage instead of 4... I found the taste of sausage to be maybe a tad bit overwhelming, but I think it would have been perfect with 3. Overall, very tasty!

Amazing Slow Cooker Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
Ok, so I was VERY weary of making this, after reading the reviews and especially after seeing the picture (I Thought, wow, that looks like something you'd see at the bottom of a porta-potty, not the bottom of a crockpot!!) But Im very glad I did try it...for the whole batter-falling-off issue, definitely recoat with another layer of flour when your done coating as per recipe directions. Or leave the soup out all together, but you will lose a thickness of coating if you do this, I know, I've tried it both ways. Also, I add the whole can of chicken broth and the whole OJ, as I like lots of extra sauce for dipping! It wasnt what you'd get at your local Chinese place, but it had an awesome orange flavor, and we loved it!!

Herald's Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
Im sorry, but i wasnt very pleased with this recipe. (Look at all the people who reviewed this favorably - most addded or changed at least a couple things about the recipe) I made this to a "T", exactly as written, and it was just way too bland.... 3 stars for easiness, 1 star for taste, hence the 2 star rating!!

Easy Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
Woohoo! These were SO good... this is what I did... had an Old El Paso Enchilada Kit I wanted to get rid of... used the spice packet that came with it when I was cooking the chicken... read the other reviews and didnt want the top of the enchiladas to be hard, so I doubled the sauce (well kinda - I actually just used the same amount of cream cheese and doubled the salsa) Reserved about 1/3 of this to put on top of the enchiladas, then added the beans and chicken to the other 2/3. Added the reserved sauce to the top, topped with cheese..... DELICIOUS!! The enchilada spice packet gave it that extra zing some other reviewers thought was missing... I even got to use the enchilada sauce from the kit to make "Best Spanish Rice" on this site... awesome dinner!!

The Best Meatballs You'll Ever Have

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
Hmmmm.... I wanted to give this 3.5.... but since there are no halves I rounded up. This had an interesting taste, not sure I will make it again though. It was EXTREMELY moist, almost TOO moist if thats possible... kept on breaking when I went to cut it in half, it was like spaghetti with meatball-tasting meat sauce!! But it was pretty good, and there were no leftovers, that alone is worth 4 stars minimum!!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
Loved this... alot of people commented it didnt taste like homemade, and im assuming thats because of the biscuits being out of a can. there are plenty of good biscuit recipes on this site though, that could easily be used in this recipe... I for one wouldnt change a thing, and thought this was great tasting "comfort food" and its best!!
