Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
I read the reviews before I baked these and decided to bake it as a cake. It is better if you use only 3/4 cup of chocolate chips, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp cloves. There is no way these would have turned out as cookies for me. I'm glad I cooked it as a cake. To me it's like pumpkin bread with chocolate mixed in. I baked it at 350 for about 20 minutes. Very yummy. Would make great holiday gifts for family and friends.

Simple Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
The kids loved this. I liked the fact that it didn't take much time to make. I consider it a budget meal and that is right up my alley!

Dried Cherry Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
This recipe is absolutely scrumptious. I used sour cream instead of yogurt and my family loved it. This recipe will definitely be a keeper.

Pumpkin Fudge

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
Absolutely awesome fudge. This very smooth fudge is very rich though. We liked this fudge so much that I will be making this a yearly recipe at Christmas.

King Ranch Chicken Casserole III

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
Very delicious. I will make this again - however next time I'm only going to add 1 cup of broth because it was really soupy.

Poblano Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
Scrumptious! My family was scraping the bottom of the dish to get the very last bite. I did cut back on the jalepeno's though because not everyone in my family likes their food that spicy. I'll definitely be using this one again.

Chicken Quesadillas and Fiesta Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
My kids loved this, but it was a little too salty for my taste. I should have used fresh/frozen chicken breast but instead used can chicken. With the can chicken and the can soup, the salt content was a little high. Also, I added beans to make these go further. I will make these again, but I will not use can chicken.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
We had these this past week for the first time and they were excellent. But I did change up the recipe quite a bit. We cooked dried black beans (2 lbs - since we have a family of 6) I then added 8 oz cream cheeze, and a can of rotel tomatoes along with our favorite spces - cumin, garlic, chili pepper, salt and pepper. I blended this in the mixer and then made them into burritos. My family absolutely loved these and we now have a new burrito recipe.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2009
My family loved this bread. They ate almost the whole loaf in one setting. I used whole wheat flour instead of white flour and to me it was a little dry. But I'm the only one in my family of 6 that thought that, so I will definitely make this again.

Fresh Pear Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
My in-laws gave me a whole sack of pears so I started looking for recipes to use them up. This is the first recipe I've tried and we loved it. This is a great holiday cake. I'm going to make a couple more and freeze them for later on.

Orange Cream Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
So Yummy! I needed a "salad" for a ladies get together at my church. I am not a big "salad" person so I went to allrecipes to find something to make. This caught my eye. It's really a dessert! But is so full of fruit that it has to be good for you - right?! I will definitely be making this one again.

Pear Honey

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
I tried to do this, but instead of cooking on the stove, I used my crockpot. Horrid results. The pears never did break down (and they were very ripe) and the juice did not thicken up at all. I had to throw the entire batch out. I guess I should have cooked it on the stove per the directions given. Oh well, lesson learned. Hated it though that I wasted so many pears!

Sour Cream Pumpkin Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
A friend made this for our chuch's Thanksgiving Dinner. I then asked her for the recipe and she sent a link to this recipe. Absolutely scrumptious. My whole family lapped it right up. Definitely a keeper.

Coconut Cream Pie II

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
Made this for Thanksgiving Dinner - a wonderful addition to the dinner. I will make it again. Love the vanilla wafer crust. I didn't have any gelatin and used corn starch instead and it worked fine except was a little runny. But it was tasty enough that I'll definitely make it again.

Honey Wheat Bread II

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
I just received a bread machine from my neighbor. This was the first recipe I used in it. The bread turned out gorgeous and delicious. Because my neighbor gave it to me, I also gave her some of the first loaf and she loved it too.

Bread Machine Bagels

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
I'm rating this with only four stars because three hours for 9 bagels was a bit much. I used 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour, and 1 1/2 cup unbleached white flour. On the plus side, they were delicious. I may do them again, but it won't be a recipe I use very much.

Brazilian Black Bean Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2012
Wow - I don't know what else to say to this recipe! It is fabulous. I was unsure about mango, chorizo, and sweet potatoes together, but it works! I cut the fat in this stew way down by using vegetarian chorizo. I'm certainly glad I found this recipe...it will be a regular meal in our home.

Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2012
I wouldn't even bother with the slow cooker. Twenty minutes and this recipe is ready to eat. I've made it a couple of times already and we love it. It's one of those go to meals when time is short. I serve this with crackers and mustard because to our family, it taste just like chili.
