Easy Streusel Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
Wonderful and EASY recipe...I changed it to be a blueberry cake with a brown sugar and cinnamon streusel. I added one cup frozen blueberries (would have been good with 1/2 cup more) to the cake mixture. Here is the streusel recipe I used... 1/2 cup flour, 2/3 cup brown sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon and 2 1/2 tablespoons margarine.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
This beat my favorite banana chocolate chip recipe (which my family loved) by a mile. It is so moist and wonderful. I used Ghirardelli chocolate bars instead of chips. A new staple in my household.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
Excellent. This was the hit of the Thanksgiving dinner. It replaced the pumpkin pie and was requested for next year! I made the following changes: I used a homemade graham cracker crust, used canned pumpkin, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp cloves, 1/2 tsp nutmeg and I baked it for 50 minutes. I also left it in the oven to cool after it was done baking.

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
Wonderful. Followed the recipe but took others' advice to 1) rinse the beans 2) add cumin and chili powder - I would say at least 1 tbsp each and 3) substitute 1 can of cream of chicken soup (I used Healthy Request) for half of the broth. Added a little cheese and sour cream on top and served with tortilla chips. Yum.

Strawberry Dream Cake II

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
Cake was good but not great. To be fair, I did make some changes. I used coconut cake mix, substituted applesauce for 1/2 of the oil and omitted the nuts. The texture was great but I expected a fresher strawberry taste. I didn't have time to make the icing so that probably would have made a difference. Overall, pretty good.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
My new sugar cookie recipe. I have been loyal to my other one for years but I'm switching to this one. I followed the recipe exactly except for separating the dough into 4 separate sections before chilling. The first time I rolled them too thin and they were too sticky. The next time I rolled them thicker and they were perfect. Totally delicious!!!

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
I loved it and my husband gave it an 8 out of 10. The only change I made was to put salsa on the bottom of the pan. Probably would have been better if I followed the recipe and just greased the bottom. Hubby said there was a little too much salsa. I will definitely make it again and follow the recipe exactly! Yum!

Famous Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
My husband - who is not a big complimenter - said he's never had better pork chops! These are a 10. I used 4 chops (halved two butterfly chops) and used 1/2 of the butter called for. I baked them uncovered at 375 for 50 minutes. Yum!!!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
These were good. No comment from the hubby so I'm thinking he wasn't a fan. I tried the joes before I added the brown sugar and I think they were better. I would make again but would omit the brown sugar...

Roasted New Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
Loved the texture of these potatoes but the taste was bland. I was looking for a basic recipe but it was a little too plain for me. Would make them again using some garlic or onion tossed in with them.

My Navy Bean Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
Perfect! My husband and I both gave this a 10. I used precooked ham chunks instead of bacon and added 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Oh...and I only used 1/4 cup or so of margarine as others suggested. I fast cooked the beans then followed the recipe. After I brought the soup to a boil I transferred to the crock pot for 3 1/2 hours (started on high and turned to low once the beans were the texture I wanted). Thanks for this recipe! Loved this and I am not even a fan of bean soup!

Poppy Seed Chicken II

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
This was really good. I liked it the way it was and will definitely make again. Hubby liked it too but when I asked what would make him like it more he requested no ritz topping or poppy seeds and that I use cream of chicken with broccoli soup. Oh...and we had it over mashed potatoes - so yummy!
