Chef John's Spaghetti alla Carbonara

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2012
We thought this was just okay. I wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to make this again.

Crispy Flautas

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2012
Made these for my family last night and they LOVED them. We didn't make any changes to the recipe except to use flour tortillas. Surprisingly quick to make, a good weekday dinner.

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2012
I love a good croque monsieur, but I thought this was a lot of effort for a so-so dish.

Summer Squash Puffs

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2012

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
Easy and the family liked it. Just my kind of recipe. We made it exactly as written, but will probably jazz it up a little more next time. Thanks!

Baked Monte Cristo Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
This was okay. Because you have to seal the crusts for the pastry sheets, you get a lot of 'bread' and all the ham and cheese together in just one spot. My family liked it, but we aren't rushing to make this again.

Chicken Chimichangas with Sour Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2012
My family raved over this recipe. I don't like sour cream, but even to me the sauce was good. My husband has his own 'Mexican chicken mixture' recipe he uses, so we just substituted that for the filling. Came out great!

Brownies In A Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2011
I can't rate it 5 stars yet because we haven't actually tried baking it. But I made this mix with my Girl Scout troop tonight and it was a great learning lesson for them - measuring, pouring, identifying what the different ingredients were for. Thanks for the simple recipe that was fun to make.

Corn and Zucchini Melody

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
Had fresh zucchini from the garden and needed a new recipe. The family adored this! I used frozen corn and added in Nature's Seasoning. No leftovers from our family of six. Even the 2 y.o. ate it up.

Authentic Enchiladas Verdes

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
I was very anxious about trying this recipe, fearing it a bit beyond my culinary skills. However, the enchiladas came out fantastic! My husband gobbled them up before I could blink! Take a chance and try this recipe, you won't be disappointed.

Easy Devonshire Cream

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
Fantastic! I made it just as directed (watch out for the right amount of cream cheese) and it was delightful. I almost put the whole 8 oz bar of cream cheese in at first, but a quick glance at the amount on the recipe saved me. People... follow directions and you won't have any problems! Try it as directed first, then add your own flair next time.

English Royalty Chocolate Chip Scones

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
Amazing! I followed the directions exactly and had no problems, although bakers should note that after adding the OJ, you have to use your hands to mix and form the dough. To keep your scones light and flaky, mix quickly and not too much - the heat of your hands melts the butter and makes the dough heavy. The husband and kids ate these up in just two days and have begged for more. I'm not usually a baker, so I was highly impressed this recipe made be look so accomplished!

Southwestern Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly, but it wasn't as spicy as promised. Next time I'll probably use two whole jalepenos to get the spice we want. Overall it was good and the family enjoyed it - a do again.

Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
We've had this multiple times now and are still in love with it. Unlike many other soups, this one has tons of flavor. We've made it exactly as the recipes states, as well as mixing it up. Either way, well worth it!

Grilled Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
My husband usually spends all day making chicken soup, I had this ready in a little over an hour and it was amazing! I made it according to the recipe, minus the mushrooms, but could see the future possibilites as well. This will be a new staple in our house.

Chicken Puffs

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
I used the crescent rolls from a can, stretched them out a bit, put the filling in the middle, and brought the ends up to the center. Then popped them in a greased muffin tin to bake, which was perfect. These were good, although the filling was a tad bit bland and the butter seemed too much. Next time I will substitute a different warm chicken salad mixture I have for the filling. All said, though, the family ate them up and leftovers work well cold or reheated a bit in the oven.

Best Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
Wonderful frosting, but follow the directions closely. The granulated sugar is not a mistage, the more you whip the better the result. Take your time with this recipe and you'll be greatly rewarded. We also served this on top of brownies - AMAZING!
