Campbell's Kitchen Beef Wellington

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
This recipe was just OK. I seasoned the mushroom mix with a touch of salt, but otherwise followed it to the letter. It was way too rare with the recommended cooking time and the pastry fell off the meat. It looked really pretty and impressive until I cut it and it bled all over the cutting board. I threw it in for an extra 20 mins.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
Awesome in the crockpot. I mixed everything but the butter, flour and milk and put it in the crockpot on high for 6 hours. I made the butter/flour/milk mix as directed and whisked it into the soup. I also added about a 1/4 cup instant potato flakes to thicken it up and WOW! was it delicious!!!

Couscous and Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
I used this as a base to try to copy my favorite salad from a specialty store. I give this 5 stars based on changes I made. I used acini di pepe pasta instead of couscous, added 1/2 cup chopped red pepper, 1/2 cup chopped white onion and 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar. I also added a dash of garlic powder and omitted green oinons, parsley and lettuce. Overall result was delicious!

Baked Potato Soup V

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
Super creamy and good! I halved the recipe, used 2 cups 2% milk and 1 cup fat-free half and half and it was thick, rich and delicious. Even my husband who adores this soup in restaurants loved this version.

Fantastic Lemon Butter Fillet

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
I thought these had too much lemon. If you're looking to mask the taste of what you're eating and love lemon, this is great, but I prefer milder flavors with fish.

Blueberry Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
Excellent bread! I omit the shortening and substitute butter. I've done it with both fresh and frozen blueberries and its delicious either way. My husband and kids love this bread!

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
Made 2 batches today in advance for my daughter's birthday cake. As far as process goes, it was much easier than anticipated. I used my hand mixer with greased dough hook attachments. One batch I colored, one I left white. Taste is very good. Now, I just hope it holds up until I need it in 5 days. I rubbed the outside with Crisco, wrapped it tight in plastic wrap and put it in a sealed zipper bag with all the air squeezed out. Another website said to leave it in the pantry instead of the fridge, since it contains nothing that will spoil and that the condensation of the cold fridge to room temp can cause streaks/discoloration. Fingers crossed! ***UPDATE*** Made the cake for the birthday party and it held up really well. It was slightly dry so I added a few drops of water, kneaded it in and it was good as fresh.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
It was good, but I can't really say World's Best. For the reviews that said it was too salty, we cut back on the salt by a bit, but if I were to make it again, I'd add the full amount of salt. Not sure I'd take the time to make it again, but thanks for the recipe.

Buffalo Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
If you serve these tossed in Buffalo Sauce, they are DELICIOUS! (They're just OK without sauce)

Gary's Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
These were just OK...edible and everyone liked them, but nothing that made me say "Wow!" Basically, all I tasted was chicken stuffing. First off, the recipe makes way more stuffing than needed for 12 mushrooms unless they are the size of dinner plates and I'm pretty sure 2 cups of butter is a typo. I'll keep looking for a different recipe.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
Pretty good. I did 1/2 mayo and 1/2 sour cream and added sauteed mushrooms. It did need a little seasoning before serving, but overall good.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
It was kind of bland. I added a little taco seasoning and some hot sauce. It was easy, but just OK.

Easy White Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
Easy and good! I added a bit of shredded cheese on top and used chopped green chilis instead of green salsa (all the green salsa I found contained MSG) Next time, I will use less of the Queso dip, but overall a great recipe.

Cherry Snowballs

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
These were yummy and fun. Definitely a good addition to the cookie plate. I found that to get the cherry inside the dough, roll the dough into a small ball, flatten it in your palm. Make a little indent in the flattened dough with your thumb, place the cherry in the indent and fold the dough over the cherry. Roll it in your hand to close the seams and you're done. Even my 4 year old could do it :)

These were good. Not as exciting as the name suggests, but good enough to make again.

Mini Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
Really good! I folded the wonton wrappers in half and flipped them halfway through cooking. They were almost as good as the fried version in restaurants.

Slow Cooker Split Pea Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
Very good! I did make a few changes though. I omitted the celery, bay leaf and sausage and used leftover diced ham from Thanksgiving and cooked with the ham bone. I also halved the recipe and threw half of the finished soup in the blender to thicken it up before serving. A little salt and pepper before serving and it was delicious!
