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.

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.

Ma Ma's Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
When we are craving something sweet, I pull this recipe out. Each time my family says "but we don't want plain old sugar cookies" and each time they end with "I can't believe they are gone already, they were so good!"

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.

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!

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!

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.

New Orleans Corn Bisque with Smoked Sausage

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
This bisque overall sounded strange to me, but we tried it anyway. It was really good, but actually better the next day after the flavors had longer to meld. I think in the future I'll make it the night before, then put into containers for lunches for a few days.

Honey Walnut Shrimp

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
This dish was super easy and incredible. The only thing that was weird was the rice flour and egg white mixture - it did become a paste and then how can you dip? I added some water and blended it in and it was perfect. We have shrimp allergies in our family, so we made this with chicken which was fantastic. We'll be making this again soon!

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.

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!

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
Good, super quick breakfast smoothie that is very filling (what I like best about it). My family didn't care for it, though, as they prefer yogurt based smoothies - but hey, more for me!
