Sugar Free Eggnog

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
Loved it! exactly like eggnog. I thought I didn't have rum, so I added the vanilla instead, then found the rum extract, so I added it too. When it finished, it looked thin instead of thick, so I added another box of pudding. I should have known better with pudding to let it set, but I added the box anyway, and it's near drinkable pudding, so I'll add more milk and it'll be perfect!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2008
Pretty good. I didn't really have to substitute for anything! (meaning, most ingredients should be on hand for this recipe for most households). Closest thing to it was the taco seasoning, which is easily made (see recipe author's comment). I didn't have any cheese, but without it, it would just need a little salt/pepper.

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2008
Taste is fantastic!! I can't tell you about the finished product yet (it's still baking), but the caramel leftovers on the spoon is divine! The quick version to just pour it on there--I've given to my husband before our movie, and he hasn't put it down yet. I'm waiting for the real stuff, but nonetheless...I can't wait, and it's been SUPER easy.

Ham and Corn Bake - Easy and Yummy!

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2008
I had never heard of cream of asparagus soup, but I did use cream/mushroom. I used granulated garlic and garlic/herb seasoned bread crumbs. Because ham is salty in addition to using canned items and store-bought bread crumbs, this recipe has no way to control the salt content. My husband, thanks to him, was able to eat it. I couldn't eat but more than two bites. I fed my 1 yr old a serving and put some ranch on it to help with some flavor and it tasted worse. I'm surprised she ate it (maybe it was just the ranch). All the same, this would be perfect for someone not worried about high salt content, but certainly not for me.

Ham and Cheesy Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2008
Having read the reviews about saltiness, I reduced bullions to 2. However, as I always seem to missing some ingredient these were my subs: 2 t pepper (instead of lemon pepper), and 1 t garlic salt (instead of onion powder). Though it was garlic salt, it didn't add to the saltiness, the 2 t pepper however, certainly does add ..."spice" and makes it taste more like pepper than a cheese sauce. This recipe turned out to me more like a glorified potatoes au gratin, but with like a hashbrown feel that you could take to a brunch.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2008
Still in oven, but the smell is great. used Pot pie #5's crust (homemade with some sage), and added some of the broth from the chicken/veggie boil step. Had a little more left over after I did the sauce and poured on top. Maybe it'll make it a thin sauce, but we'll only see- hopefuly help with dryness referred to in other reviews. Added canned corn & green beans to add more variety (not having the frozen kind around). Smells great, and I'm sure it'll taste good too.

Creamy Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2008
Ate nearly half the pan myself! Used a can of cheese sauce I had leftover from a party and 2 c rice leftover from last night's dinner. The sauce was great!! I too probably should have combined some veggies with the rice/sauce, but put green beans underneath my serving and it got mixed in anyway. Wonderful!

Paul's Pumpkin Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
I used 2c. fresh pumpkin puree I made, and since it was fresh, and typically more liquidy than canned, I used only 1/2c. oil. I used pumpkin pie spice rather than spices listed, and as other reviews recommended, used only 3 eggs and halved my baking powder/soda. I'm using betty crocker cream cheese frosting, and letting guests frost themselves--as I think chocolate may also work well (I liked it this way). In jelly roll pan, it's a dark non-stick, so I did take it out at 27 min (magic time I guess), and it tastes so moist (I assume because I used fresh pumpkin, as all my recipes with fresh pumpkin do this).

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
I eyeballed most of the spices, but used 2 fresh tomatoes & 1 can condensed tomato soup since I didn't have canned tomatoes. I also used frozen "chuckwagon" corn-the corn with red peppers and onions, and that saved some time. Since I cubed and cooked the chicken in water before adding to crockpot, I added the fresh broth & left the chicken cubed. For the most part I actually followed this recipe and served with shredded cheese and rice as sides to add to the soup. It tastes great with cheese (of course!), but adds more body to the soup when adding a cup of cheese. The rice I made in my rice cooker, plain, no spices, and just added it to my bowl of soup--served buffet style to guests & family. The rice helped me stretch this budget meal farther.

Cake Mix Cookies VI

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
Made with white cake mix, so coloring was lighter than typical. Put a few on the cookie sheet before adding the chocolate chips to try it plain/peanut butter. I liked it just as peanut butter regular. Would recommend baking at 10-12 min unless you like a center that tastes a lot like the batter rather than a baked cookie. Of course, this is a cake mix cookie, so expect it to be like a dollop of cake rather than a flat normal chocolate chip cookie.

Light Wheat Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
Made these with Honey and Whole Wheat flour (no white). Let them rise as supposed to, and did the cloverleaf version in my only muffin tin, and rounds on a cookie sheet for the other half. Made 26 rolls. If I try this again, I'll still try the whole wheat flour, but maybe use sugar to make the dough sweet. I had added 1/3c gluten to ensure rising since I didn't use the white, and they certainly rose, but they still seemed to be lacking in flavor & softness (even after the multiple risings). I don't get it, and I didn't add extra flour to "correct consistency" as it was elastic enough.

Orange Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
Pretty good. Didn't have bean sprouts on hand, but it still turned out orange-y. I'm sure having the bean sprouts would have helped the liquid not seem so...juicy. I added the 2 T. flour and it thickened, but certainly not the way you think of from a Chinese take-out. I served on top of fried rice, and it turned out pretty good.

Peach Cobbler III

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
Will likely update stars later, however this time was only worth 4. The sweetness was good, and the bread/cake was good. What I will try next time is either using more peaches or adding some of the water anyway. I used a 15 oz can and maybe had only 1/2 c. juice. I like cobbler to have more liquid to balance out the cake part. So maybe per reviews, will add more water to equal at least 1c. liquid on top to correct this.

Banana Bread V

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
It tastes good, but since I didn't follow everything in order, I goofed and didn't add any baking powder. (I creamed first and then added the dry ingredients)...then again, the ingredients aren't in order of how they're added either, so it's not entirely my fault. I did add some dashes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves because I do like spice in banana bread. Otherwise, it's a fine recipe. I let my mixer "mash" the bananas when I added them, so it's kinda chunky banana (I used 3) & that's wonderful! My husband bought the bananas specifically for banana bread, and now he's out of town...I don't think he'll be back to have any!

Rosenmunnar

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2008
Having made similar cookies before ("crown jewels", thumbprint cookies, etc), this is by far the easiest, and involves fewer ingredients to hassel with. I was unwilling to try jelly, but I did use boysenberry preserves, and it tastes great. I used my pinky for the indentations, and tried not to overflow the preserves in them (and succeeded). I'm trying to leave a few for my husband when he gets home, but I'm not sure I'll be able to, as they're very tasty.

Chicken Enchilada Casserole I

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
This was good for a quick dinner. I cooked the chicken in about 1/2 c. water with the seasonings and used that for "broth". Added both cans of soup, Rotel (tomatoes/chilies) & green enchilada sauce. I also cut the tortillas into strips and used shredded cheese rather than velveeta (I don't keep that on hand). This may have changed the texture of the casserole, but it didn't seem very soupy to me. I made this for my husband and toddler before leaving for a different dinner function and they ate half the dish by themselves. I've now eaten a good size portion and barely have enough to call leftovers (for a family of 2 1/2-that's saying something). So even if you play with the ingredients slightly, I don't think this recipe can fail much.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
I didn't have onions or jalapenos (or any peppers for that matter), but I did have green enchilada sauce, and I added about 1 cup of the sauce. It added just the right kick. It was great.

Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
Pretty rich on the chocolate. I'd like it sweeter. Was surprised to see the pudding set up via microwave. It was so runny/liquidy after the first 2 1-minutes stirring rotations. But the 3rd minute is when it got thick for me. Cool! I only rate 3 *'s because the taste wasn't sweet enough.

Green Chili Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
This just did not hit the spot. It's just missing some oomph. I agree it needs a can of Rotel (chilies & tomatoes) and maybe some beans or a veggie (corn?). Might as well make it into an enchilada casserole for all the stuff it needs to make it taste better.

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
It was good, but not great. Used an onion soup mix (1 TBSP in steak, remainder in sauce), for not having condensed version on hand, and used cream of mushroom soup. Omitted ketchup altogether, doubled sauce recipe as recommended, & cooked in oven (pour over steaks, at 400*, 30 min). Sauce came out very thick (paste almost?), and I was expecting more like gravy, so I'll add more water for my kind of consistency (maybe evaporated in oven?). Husband's first words were, "Oh my.." in a not so good sort of way. I think it was salt content from using onion soup mix.
