Chunky Marinara Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2013
Used only half the onion and added basil. I liked it well enough for a quick tomato sauce in a pinch. My 10 yr old son loves spaghetti sauce, but says he didn't like this as much as Ragu. =(

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
Disclaimer: Not a big fan of hummus. Did this according to recipe except used half the cayenne recommended and it's plenty hot. Otherwise it tastes pretty bland. I used the Hummus III recipe last time and added cumin, roasted pepper, and red pepper flakes and I think I like that one better.

Hummus III

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
First, I've never been a fan of hummus, but the lemon especially is so over powering in this recipe. Maybe I just had an especially sour lemon, because that's all I tasted. Also, a little too much tahini for my taste. I started with the original recipe and then kept adding things until it was edible. Added 1/4 tsp cumin, another clove garlic, and some roasted red peppers. Next time I'll try the Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus on here.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
Meh. Too sweet, a little too spicy, and the basil to oregano proportions seemed off. Won't use again.

Cowboy Stew I

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
Just ok, and wouldn't make again. Doesn't get much easier though. After tasting it I added some hot sauce, and some garlic powder, and even some hot dog. It'd probably be good as is with corn bread.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
Couldn't find boneless ribs, so used the "country style pork ribs" and the bones just fell out anyway. Cooked in the Crock Pot overnight on LOW, about 9 hours. Used KC Masterpiece Hickory Brown Sugar bbq sauce. So tender and yummy! Made this for a friend, and she and her husband loved it, too.

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
These turned out great - moist and flavorful. Cut recipe to 4 burgers. Used wheat bread crumbs and added a Tbsp. of bbq sauce since they weren't seasoned, and season salt instead of regular. Even my husband likes them and this is his first turkey burger. I used to work at a restaurant that served turkey burgers with grilled zucchini, onions, and mushrooms (which I omit) under melted cheese, thousand island dressing, and a slice of tomato - try it, it's yummy!

Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2010
My kids (6 and 4) gobbled these up before I could even frost them. Maybe next time! The texture and flavor was very good. Since I'm at 6600 ft. I halved the baking soda and powder so that I didn't end up with hockey pucks. Also didn't have buttermilk, but sour cream did the job. Made 17 cupcakes, baked for 20 minutes.

Toll House Pie I

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
Didn't know what people were talking about about the butter until I served it up... all the extra butter settles into the crust. This was yummy, but will definitely cut the butter next time. Oddly enough the original Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Pie recipe on the Nestle site called for ANOTHER half cup of butter!

Pork Tenderloin in Mustard Marinade with Cherry Compote

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
Very tasty. Didn't have the mushrooms, nor do I care for them, so left them out. Husband wouldn't eat the cherry compote, but I thought it was very good. Maybe could have gone with a little less thyme (maybe 1 tsp) Quick and easy, too. I think you could easily half the compote and still have plenty.

Buffet Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: May 15, 2010
These were kind of gross. Took them to a breakfast potluck and no body touched them. Would have been better off with plain scrambled eggs. The sauce gave them a slimy texture and blah taste.

Original Nestle® Toll House® Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
I use shortening (often butter flavored) in place of the butter/margarine, and add 1-2 Tbsp. flour and they come out perfect!

Yummy Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
I used a store bought deep dish pie crust. Reduced cream to 1 1/3 cups, which filled it to the brim but didn't overflow. Also used green onions instead of regular (for color), and eliminated the green chilies (don't care for them). Took to a potluck and got several compliments. So easy and delicious.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
We were not crazy about this on the Mahi Mahi, and in fact didn't use the extra sauce at all because it was too overpowering, yet the fish was too strong also. But we tried the sauce with chicken and it was great! Will use this again with chicken probably, and maybe through in some grilled pineapple, too.

Chicken and Red Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
I followed this recipe exactly, and I think it has potential with some changes. As is, it was very sweet, and lacked flavor. It didn't even taste like wine sauce. I'd agree with other reviewers and reduce the sugar, and add some onions and thicken the sauce with corn starch next time.

Cafeteria Carrot Souffle

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
I just had this at a Christmas party, and loved it even though I'm not a fan of cooked carrots. I got the recipe and the only difference was that this recipe uses twice the carrots, but I would think that would just make it actually taste like carrots! Definitely adding this one to my list of holiday side dishes.

Double Chocolate Cookies by EAGLE BRAND®

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
Not sure what happened, but these did not turn out for me. I had a big goopy mess even after extra time in the oven. Had to add probably 1/3 cup flour to salvage the batter. Will try again, just in case. They are easy and very rich.

Fruit Cocktail Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
My mom makes this cake and I love it. I used to request it for my birthday it was so good. I'm reviewing this recipe because it's the closest to my mom's. Mom's recipe doesn't call for lemon juice (guessing that has to do with browning of the fruit), and eliminates the coconut (seems to be a matter of taste). Mixing directions were to separate the eggs, beating the yolks and fruit cocktail until the fruit was well "mushed". After mixing in everything, the egg whites are beaten to soft peaks and folded in. This seems to give the cake a bumpy texture. Then we cut the cake into pieces while warm before pouring the glaze over so that it absorbs it well. That's my favorite part! I've have problems with the glaze thickening properly when using margarine, so I always use real butter for the glaze. Rich and delicious!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
Yep, doing it Martha Stewart's way makes this five star bread. I did not care for the slices of banana. Otherwise, this is the best banana bread recipe around!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
I originally made this to go in the "Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup" here, and it's excellent for that. Then I tried it for taco meat, and I haven't bought a packet of taco seasoning since! As another reviewer mentioned I stir 2 tsp. corn starch into a batch, and add 2/3 cup water to 1 lb. browned ground beef. Bring to a boil, then simmer for a few minutes. Perfect! (I use 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper in place of the 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes.)
