Tater Tot Taco Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2013
A GREAT RECIPE!!! I made a few tweeks: I added a jar of chunky salsa to the cooked ground beef. And I added another jar of salsa to the bottom of the pan. (I omitted the enchilada sauce entirely). I also cooked the tater tots on a baking sheet ahead of time because I like them to be a bit crispier. Once they were cooked I placed them on top of the ground beef, topped with cheese and baked. I served with a side of sour cream (seasoned with a few dashes of adobo seasoning) and chopped avocado seasoned with a few dashes of lime juice). I'm going to try crushing corn chips instead of tater tots next time. YUMMMMM!!!!!

Mombasa Pumpkin Dessert

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
Let me start by saying that I am a sugar addict (and not looking to go into rehab for it). Rarely do I find things that are 'too sweet' for me, but even when I only used 1 cup of sugar in this recipe (as opposed to using the 2 cups that it called for), it was still overwhelmingly sweet (thank you previous reviewers for suggesting to cut the sugar). The only way for me to fix it was to add more pumpkin. I enjoyed the cardamom, but also added cinnamon and nutmeg. After a few days in the fridge, I then returned the mixture to a pan and on medium heat added chopped chicken breasts, cilantro and curry. Served over basmati rice with some store bought garlic naan and made a great dinner out of it.

Cider Vinegar Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
I used my crockpot & used garlic powder instead of salt. Felt it needed a 'kick' to it so I added 1 Good Seasons Italian seasoning packet (dry) plus 1/4 cup brown sugar. The sauce was delicious when mixed with the chicken's broth!!! I then poured the broth into a saucepan and thickened it to make a nice gravy. Served over mashed potatoes...everyone LOVED IT!

Tropical Grilled Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
Followed the recipe exactly, except I omitted the jalapenos. THIS WAS OUTRAGEOUS! I couldn't stop tasting the simmered ingredients! The key to any pork chop is not to overcook it and to only turn it once on the grill (never close the lid while cooking meet and it's stays moist). Will be adding this to my rotation of dinners. I'm going to try this marinade with grilled salmon and shrimp next...OH YUM...a MUST DO recipe!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
Great recipe, no changes needed! I added a little extra vanilla and cinnamon to suite our taste, but overall a classic recipe. I served it in wine glasses topped with whipped cream....everyone raved about it!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
I followed the directions exactly and it was perfect. No need to alter a thing! I'll try this with peaches and blueberries when they come into season next year! Thanks for a great classic recipe!

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2008
Delicious cookies! I did make some healthier substitutes: I used Splenda instead of sugar, used 2 egg whites instead of 1 egg, added 1 cup unsweetened applesauce, 2 cups canned pumpkin puree and eliminated the flour and used 4 cups oats. I used a soup spoon to keep size consistent and baked for 12 minutes. They will be softer because of the applesauce, but hold together nicely when cooled. For my icing, I used confectioners sugar plus Coffee Mate's coconut cream flavor liquid creamer to add a little flavor to the cookies. Got rave reviews, especially from my diabetic friends!

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
WOW! WOW! WOW! I took the suggestion to roll the bacon in brown sugar and let it 'marinate' overnight. So simple to make! EVERYONE asked for the recipe! This will become a regular in our holiday party menu!

Broccoli Casserole III

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
This was easy to make and delicious, even for people who claim they don't like broccoli. The only thing I would do differently next time is to add a 1/4 cup of chicken broth over the broccoli and then top with cheese and cracker topping just to give it a bit more moisture (was just a bit dry), but otherwise will be making this again!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
This was easy to make and a great meal to make for a bunch of people!!! Would definitely recommend this!!! The only thing I did differently was instead of using cornstarch to thicken the sauce, I melted 3 TBS of butter and whisked in 3 TBS flour to make a roux and then added that to the sauce to thicken it.

Coq au Vin alla Italiana

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
GREAT RECIPE!!! My 'twist' on it: I put 1 cup of wine in a saucepan and simmered until alcohol was evaporated. I did not flour and precook the chicken...I just added all raw ingredients plus the wine into my crockpot and turned on high for 3 hours. When the chicken was done, I made a roux of flour and water and whisked it into the crockpot. Just prior to serving I mixed in 1/3 cup of parmesean cheese. Served over mashed potatoes. SO SO SO D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!!!

Fudge Drops

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2007
It doesn't get any easier than this! As I dropped them onto the wax paper, my daughter sprinkled red, white and green christmas tree sprinkles on them for a festive touch.

Pastitsio III

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
I used this recipe as a 'base' and made some changes that resulted in my Greek friends SMILING and asking for this to be added to the dinner rotation!!!!!!!! I used Perciatelli instead of elbow macaroni. I omited the plum tomatoes, red wine vinegar, chili powder and chicken stock. I used 8 oz of pre-made marinara sauce. I added 3 TBS of beer and cooked it until the alcohol was evaporated (didn't take long). With the white sauce I added 2 TBS of cream cheese and an additional 1/4 cup parmesean cheese. The results were CRAZYYYYYY good! ENJOY!

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
This is a simply great recipe! The one thing I did differently was that after the roast was done, I sliced it and spread out the slices in a roasting tray. I sprinkled each slice of pot roast with fresh, crumbled bleu cheese and broiled it quickly until the bleu cheese was bubbly. It definitely helped dress it up!

Oven Fried Chicken IV

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
Awesome chicken recipe! I did take suggestions and altered it a bit: I mixed ALL of the seasonings (I used garlic powder, salt, cumin, oregano and thyme) into the sour cream PLUS I added crushed French fried onions (the kind that usually goes on top of green bean casserole). I also added some more crushed french friend onions into the crushed cornflakes. And, I used boneless chicken thighs. The chicken was moist and the coating was crispy. Easy recipe and will definitely make again! LEFT OVER NOTE.....With the left overs, I put them in the oven at 400, topped with spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese and served over pasta. A great way to make 'chicken parm'. Family went nuts over it and didn't realize it was the chicken from 2 days before!
