Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
This is a very simple, quick and forgiving recipe. First time making it - reading other reviews I decided to add my own ingredients. I sauteed the chicken with garlic (2 cloves, pressed) and onions (1/3), drained oil and shredded the chicken, then added spicy taco seasoning, drained corn and beans, I love sauce so I added 1 can of the rotel tomatoes and green chiles and threw in about 1.5 cups of salsa (Vons brand, fiesta salsa). I layered the bottom of the dish with Uncle Ben's 90 second Roasted Chicken rice (cooked). I used a smaller dish as well, the 9x13 would have made it way too shallow. Instead i used a 8" x 8" x 2" Baking Square Dish. Topped with cheese and crushed white corn chips - baked and worked out perfectly~!

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
Sooooo good!! I didn't put walnuts in and added another handful of mini chocolate chips - came out very moist and delicious!! Also, because I couldn't find 9x5 pans, I just used the disposable ones from the market that come in 3, they are like 8x4 but they fit, I just bake for about 6 mins longer.

Peanut Butter Chip Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
I used mini reese's peanut butter cups in the middle of the cookies instead of using peanut butter chips - turned out perfect! I also added 1 tbsp of water to make the cookies more moist.

Chicken, Stuffing and Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
I made this dish for Thanksgiving and it was absolutely delicious! Reading other reviews, I did make some changes to the recipe. I used cream of mushroom and added a small can of sliced mushrooms (cause I love mushrooms). I also added 1/2 cup 1% low fat milk and cooked the chicken with a couple chopped up cloves of garlic. I did not add any extra salt, but did pepper it a little, used "no salt added" green beans and Stovetops Chicken stuffing. Only used about 1/2 cup of cheese (chedder & jack) to sprinkle on then topped it off with about 1 1/2 cup of french fried onions. Very easy recipe and very very good! My boyfriend is now requesting I make it all the time!

Blueberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
Surprisingly a really good salad! I don't really like blue cheese and I wasn't sure if it would go with blueberries, but - it did! I used extra virgin olive oil instead of vegetable oil and it turned out really good! Will definitely be making this salad over and over again!

Basil Chicken over Angel Hair

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
I was craving angel hair pasta and this dish totally satisfied it! Only thing is I kind of overcooked the chicken so it came out a little dry, but the recipe itself is tasty!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
Very good flavor, easy to make! Loved the sauce - made double. Added 1 more clove of garlic and minced fresh ginger instead of powder. also used lite soy sauce. I used chicken breasts and yes, they did cook much quicker (I had put in oven at 400 for about 40 mins) and they came out kind of dry. I will have to make again this time not over cooking! very delicious though!

Dip For The Stars

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
Absolutely the best dip ever! I made it for a holiday party this past weekend - everyone loved it AND many asked me for the recipe~! I did make a few changes based on other reviews. First off I made my own pesto sauce from this recipe off the site: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Pesto-Sauce/Detail.aspx - I halved the amount, used pine nuts and didn't add much salt which I think is really what made the dip as a whole good because I think store bought pesto is much saltier and the dip is already very flavorful on its own. For the dip, I also halved the recipe, still made a lot good for 15-20 people. Used a creamy feta, fresh cream cheese from a cheese market. Used about 1 1/4 cup of sun dried tomatoes in jar in oil - but made sure to drain as much oil as possible. Used all the pesto which was about 1 1/2 cup, again try to leave out oily parts. I added more tomatoes and pesto because other reviews stated there was too much cheese mixture, and it's true. So I just made the dip as I wanted and added more of the other layers. Best served with whole wheat pita or baguettes and make sure you place them on a separate plate because the dip will still be a bit oily on the bottom. WONDERFUL DIP!!

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2008
I just couldn't get the sauce quite right since I had a little bit more meat than called for and also added shitake mushrooms. But the dish was good overall.

Mini Ham And Cheese Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2008
Melt in your mouth!! So good! I didn't put the sauce inside like some suggested and thought it came out best that way because the sauce is quite strong. I used onion powder with parsley and green onion flakes instead and worked out perfect!

Cheese and Broccoli Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2008
Delicious - did make changes to the recipe. Sauteed onions and garlic with the chicken a little - then added chicken broth and some extra spices (nutmeg, thyme, red pepper). I waited about 20 minutes before putting the broccoli in since some stated how it all becomes really mushy really fast. And then mixed in the roux. I used a bit less flour than called for in the mix since i found it caked up quickly. even with slow stirring and mixing. But great recipe for a cold night!

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
Excellent frosting recipe and you can just add more sugar if it's not sweet enough, which is what I found, but it's to each their own taste!

Self-Filled Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
I made it for my team at work and they loved it!! My filling did not sink to the bottom, I think it's all about how you mix the ingredients so that the consistency comes out right. I filled half the cupcake with mix, then put in a table spoon full of filling and topped with a tablespoon of cake mix. Came out perfect! Delicious!

Tuna Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
Reading other reviews, I added 1 pkg. frozen peas and carrots, 1 extra can of tuna, 1 tsp of onion powder and used 2 cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese and egg noodles instead. This made the dish less creamy but my boyfriend and I agreed it was better this way and more filling with veggies and tuna. Also topped with a light dusting of the rest of the cheese and then sprinkled on plain bread crumbs and then French's fried onions, came out PERFECT! I will definitely be making this one over and over!!
