Campbell's Kitchen Tuna Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
Good, easy recipe - just like I remember from when I was a kid. I didn't mix the bread crumbs and butter, but put a few pats of margarine on the top then sprinkled on bread crumbs. It's a little bland, but that's what I'm usually looking for in comfort food!

Garlic Bubble Ring

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2008
Quite possibly the best bread I ever tasted! I served it at a dinner party and everyone raved. I used 8" cake pans and formed the balls smaller than what's in the picture. I didn't need as much butter as the recipe called for, and I also didn't taste much of the garlic so if you want a really garlicky taste, try adding more.

Quick Black Forest Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2008
Pretty, easy, and everyone loved it! Different take on your regular chocolate cake. I cut the maraschino cherries in half and put them all around the top of the cake, gave it kind of a polka-dot look.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2008
Soooo good!! I'm originally from the South and am some what of a BBQ snob, but this is fantastic! I would advise using Mug root beer - when I made it using this brand, the whole house smelled like cake while it was cooking (weird, but I guess it is all the sugar). The next time I made it, I couldn't find Mug and used A&W brand, and it was still good but not quite as sweet.

Savory Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2008
Pretty good - I normally like dill but I think I prefer the more traditional deviled egg recipe. They were pretty salty so next time I would omit the salt.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
Fantastic! I like this recipe a lot better than the toll house recipe. I didn't think they were too cake-like, but were soft and sort of gooey. I left them in for 13 minutes and they still hadn't started to brown, but I took them out anyway - once they hardened up a little, they were great. I added the 2 tsp. of baking powder the 1/8 tsp. of salt and increased the vanilla to 2 Tbsp. This is my new go-to cookie recipe!

Lemon Blueberry Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
I'm not terribly impressed with this recipe - it was kind of bland and the glaze was sort of strange. I love the combination of lemon and blueberry but I was mostly tasting bisquick. The only change that I made was using splenda instead of the sugar in the coffee cake (but I still used regular confectioner's sugar for the glaze) - but I don't think that would make too much of a difference. Not bad to snack on, but I don't think I would serve this to guests.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2008
Very good! I made it in the bread machine (only 8 servings because it's small) on the light crust setting and it was great. I didn't have regular sugar so I used brown sugar, but it still worked. I cut the amount of sugar by about half and was just right for me.

Fettuccini Alfredo I

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
Excellent simple recipe. I doubled the amount of cheese because I love parmesan cheese, and I added a little nutmeg and pepper. I also left out the hot sauce because I'm a wimp...but it really hits the spot and isn't nearly as unhealthy as fettucine alfredo from a restaurant.

Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2008
Great recipe - I was in a hurry so I didn't do the part about cutting the holes and stuffing the paste, I just rubbed it onto the pork. It was great though, very tender and perfect flavor! (I also omitted the wine step but that sounds good too).

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
Excellent recipe - exactly what I was craving. I used my rice cooker and although the bottom layer burnt a little, the rest of the rice was fluffy and perfect. I used 1 c. rice, 1 1/2 c. chicken broth, 1/2 c. tomato sauce, 1/4 c. onions I had sauteed first, and about 1 Tbsp. taco seasoning. Next time I will probably add some diced tomatoes.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
So good, and so easy! Would be great for company but I just make it for simple dinners with mashed potatoes and veggies.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
Great basic recipe! Just what I was looking for. Per other reviews, I used 2 cans of diced tomatoes instead of the tomato juice. I also omitted the cayenne pepper and bell peppers. I used a can of dark red kidney beans, a can of red beans and a can of pinto beans.

Dill Dip III

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
Great recipe - everyone loved it. I've made it twice now. I use fresh dill and I think that makes a big difference. I also add a little garlic salt and garlic powder. I made it without the seasoning salt but I thought something was missing so I added just a little (maybe a teaspoon or so) and it was perfect.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
Fantastic! This was my first time trying quinoa and it was wonderful! I added a couple of chopped fresh tomatoes at the end which I think really made the dish. It was so colorful and fresh-looking, I'd serve this at a bbq or for company. I used chicken broth instead of veggie broth, and ended up adding some more (maybe 1/2 cup) because the quinoa dried out before the cooking time was over. I also soaked the quinoa for 10-15 minutes first as other reviewers suggested. This is going to be one of my new staples from now on!

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
I really enjoyed these, but I'm giving it 4 stars because of several adjustments I made. I added italian seasoning, chopped onions, and garlic salt (and omitted the regular salt). I think they would be pretty bland without these seasonings. The texture was great - I didn't taste oats and didn't really notice the cheese, but it all blended well. I reduced the sugar just a bit, but still found the topping to be a little too sweet. I used a jumbo muffin tin and it made 6 - they were the perfect single serving size, and great for leftovers.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
Tasted great and quick to make! I think I like this better than "traditional" recipes I've tried. I used light cream cheese and 2% milk. Could have cut down the butter to make it a bit healthier. Also reheated well the next day.

Pumpkin Fudge

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
I had the opposite problem from many of the reviewers - mine was as hard as a rock. I used a candy thermometer and boiled it to soft ball stage (235 degrees), which took 28 minutes instead of 18. So I can't give the recipe 1 star because if I had followed the recipe exactly instead of reviewers' suggestions, it might have turned out better. As it is though, it's inedible.

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
SO good! Very reminiscent of a certain restaurant... I substituted the roasted garlic for jarred chopped garlic because I didn't want to take the extra time (I was hungry!). It was still very good but I think with the roasted garlic, it would be perfection! I also used about half the can of artichokes because I'm not a huge fan. Chopping them up very small is the way to go.
