Cake Mix Cookies I

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2012
YUMMY! The kids (10 and 11) made these last night with very little help. We used a butter yellow cake mix (pudding inside), 1/3 c veg oil, 2 eggs, a splash of water, and an entire bag of mini m&ms. They baked perfectly at 350 for 10 minutes. I woke up this morning to mouse bites out of the ones I left packaged for their lunch... they must like them.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
This was very, very good. I don't think I'll ever make another batch of lasagna where I don't double layer the lasagna. One thickness of lasagna doesn't seem to be enough to hold all of the deliciousness together. My fiancee has absolutely fallen in love with the sauce... especially the fennel. Don't leave it out! :) This recipe is defintely a keeper.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
The flavor was wonderful. My only complaint is how crunchy the syrup made the top crust when poured over the top. Next time I will pour most of it over the apples directly then brush some on the crust as suggested by other reviewers. Thanks for keeper of a recipe!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
I followed this recipe word for word and its was incredible. Make it... you won't regret it! I had never thought of doing Cordon Bleu on the stovetop but it worked perfectly. I used a meat thermometer and took out the chicken at about 160 degrees and allowed it to finish cooking while resting. It gave me time to work on the sauce and the chicken stayed moist and wasnt overcooked.

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
This is such a hearty risotto! I never realized a vegetarian rice meal could be so satisfying. I use cremini, white and portobello mushrooms when making this, but follow the rest of the directions exactly, minus the chives for which I substitute thinly sliced green onion tops. It has never turned out mushy, never soggy... perfect every single time. It has become a meal I entertain with and receive rave reviews each time it comes to the table. My favorite is to top this with shaved parm, rather than grated. I love finding those bigger pieces of cheese buried in warm, comforting rice. Trust me, this one is worth the time involved!

Cream Soup Base

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
This was excellent. I added a little thyme, 1 1/2 lbs fresh, lightly steamed asparagus, a bunch of sliced leeks, two small leftover baked potatoes (diced) and a large handful of torn baby spinach. It was pretty much whatever I could find in the fridge that *might* work. I added an extra cup of milk to stretch the soup a little further and added a tiny bit of cornstarch/water slurry to help thicken it back up and used a chicken soup base rather than granules or bouillon cubes. I served it with whole-grain grilled cheese sandwiches. The creaminess of the soup complimented the course texture of the sandwiches. It came together nicely. We'll definitely do this again and also will try it as a broccoli cheese soup. This a very versatile recipe and will remain in my rotation...especially as the weather cools down!

Skiers' French Toast

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
This was excellent. It went over well with the kids and adults alike. I used a day old Tuscan loaf and left the crusts on, as the texture is nice once cooked. I also added cinnamon to the egg/milk mixture. For those who believe it to be too soggy, try increasing the cooking time. Mine was in the oven almost an hour and came out perfectly all the way through.

Spicy Indian (Gujarati) Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2010
I followed another poster's suggestion and used a little bit of horseradish instead of the mustard seeds. It was a delicious substitute. I also added a handful of cashews at the end of cooking and used raw sugar instead of white. Thanks for passing along a keeper!

Mexican Shrimp Cocktail

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
Excellent recipe. I add a diced cucumber, a couple of stalks of celery and some extra hot sauce. I also cook my shrimp in mexican beer the night before, drain and chill in the fridge overnight. Great for a HOT summer night.

Slamtastic Eggplant Sandwich

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
This recipe is very good, as long as you add the 1 garlic clove to a cup of mayonnaise (not a tablespoon) and be sure it is very finely chopped. The mayo makes this sandwich!! It tastes like it came from a deli. YUM!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
INCREDIBLE! I used over three cups of zucchini (don't drain it!), one cup of white sugar, 3/4 cup brown sugar. This was by far the best batch of zucchini bread that I've ever made. I earned kisses for this one :)

Pecan Pie IV

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
Easy, delicious... perfect! I had to work on Christmas Day, but we needed a pie, so I gave these instructions to my bf (who doesn't cook...not even toast) by text message. He pulled it off and it came out perfectly! He was nervous about the task he'd been handed, but in the end he commented on the simplicity of the recipe. We made no changes to the recipe as written.

Bev's Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: May 13, 2008
I really like the ratios used in this recipe, except for the flour. I use just a touch less and cook this on the stove instead of the microwave. Super creamy and cheesy, yum! I tried this recipe a second time using pepper jack (instead of cheddar) and adding corn, black beans, chopped grilled chicken, jalapenos and cilantro... to die for! Thanks : )

Mexican Posole Stew

Reviewed: May 13, 2008
YUM! Ive used this recipe several times and each time I think I like it more. Thanks for posting the perfect posole recipe. Its snowing today and will be awesome for dinner tonight. The only thing I change is that I don't use the pigs feet or pork skin... just my preference.
