Dirt Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
Excellent! This is hubby's fave dessert and it turned out wonderful, made no changes except I used chocolate pudding instead of vanilla, thought the pudding mixture needed some chocolate. Will make again and again!

Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
YUM! Best pot pie recipe ever! Will def. make again, as requested by hubby. Felt it needed more veg so I added broccoli and mushrooms instead of peas (along with some pepper and garlic) and it was fantastic. Used Pilsbury refrig. dough to make it easier, and def. needs to bake longer than 35-35 min, mine was in almost an hour, maybe next time will up the temp a bit.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
These were great! Very easy, tasty and held up well for days on the counter as said by another reviewed. I could not ice pumpkin cookies without cream cheese frosting as I love pumpkin and cream cheese, so I used my great grandmas cream cheese frosting recipe instead. They were a hit and one batch lasted thru not one but two family parties on Saturday and Sunday.

Uglies

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
Really good, easy and normally have all items on hand for quick meal. I had to scramble last night to make dinner for DH when I found out I didn't have everything on hand for the planned meal, so I busted these out quickly and he really enjoyed them. He said "So these are like sloppy joes with biscuits and cheese?" and I was like NOO!! Wait... uhh yeah I guess! LOL! These will get thrown into the rotation for an easy dinner night. I added some mustard and worschteshire sauce to the BBQ for extra flavor.

Layered Chicken and Black Bean Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2009
Excellent, even though I screwed up the recipe a bit. I accidentally put the cheese and sour cream on top before baking, realized what I did and tried to scrape off making a mess, then tried to add it back on in the last 10 min. Also used jalapenos instead of chiles and hot enchilada sauce rather than the norm. Also just shredded some seasoned rotisserie chicken rather than cooking my own. With my little blunders or changes it was still wonderful, so I am sure once I make it 100% as it should be it will be even better. *** TO ALL THOSE OUT THERE THAWING, SEASONING AND COOKING FROZEN CHICKEN - save money, time and flavor by using a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken. I picked one up at the grocerty store for only $2.50 and now I have pre cooked and seasoned chicken for all my chicken dishes/casseroles this week. They also make a good quick chicken taco. ****UPDATE: Just found out the hubby totally HATED this... he must have just been trying to be nice when he didn't tell me right away. I still thought it was great but he told me not to make it again :( I will blame his poor desire for Mexican food rather than the recipe itself.

Creamy Lasagna Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
This was fantastic! I was super skeptical and was anticipating a sloppy, runny mess and was nervous to serve this to my fam before trying it myself. OMG my fam said it's the best lasagna they have ever had! During prep I didn't think this was going to turn out like lasagna at all with the odd cheese/sour cream mixture, but it was just like lasagna only with a much better cheesy mixture that everyone liked way better than the norm ricotta/cottage cheese mixture. My mom hands down makes the best lasagna I have ever had and my dad told me he liked this much better. It also held together very well, not what I expected. The best part was that my fiance hates lasagna and won't eat it, but he actually tried some leftovers last night and like it!

Tacos in Pasta Shells

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
This is pretty good, not phenomenal. I have already made this out of my One Dish Bible cookbook years ago. Kind of hard to mix the cream cheese and beef, although I love both so it's a great idea. Pretty messy too, but I enjoy the concept.

Beefy Baked Ravioli

Reviewed: May 1, 2009
To the person who rated this as "This is not a recipe, it's directions for opening cans" obviously you must have time on your hands to make food from scratch every day, breakfast to dinner. For those of us who have lives and live in the real world, it's nice to have an easy "semi-homemade" meal to turn to on a busy day, most of the time there are things in life that are more important to spend time on than making a meal from scratch every night.

Crunchy Tuna Turnovers

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
Super yummy, quick, and easy! Great starter recipe since there are plenty of things we can think of to use the crunchy biscuit idea, I would love to try it with chicken salad. I barely had the ingredients needed, so I had to sub the egg for milk and the chips for Rice Krispies cereal and it was still really good, but anxious to try with the right ingredients. I did cut the biscuits in 1/2 like another review suggested, think it would made them too heavy using whole biscuits. Will make these again and again! Thanks for the great recipe!

Chicken and Bow Tie Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
MMM! This was so yummy and so easy to make. Thanks for the great recipe! I am a huge cream cheese fan but have never used it in a sauce like this, it gave it great flavor and will be making this a lot more often! Hubby really enjoyed it and would like it again, which surprised me since he isn't usually a big fan of creamy pasta like I am. Will definately be making this again, and quite often! Also gives great starter ideas for different sauce flavors and combinations to try in the future. The only downside is re-heating, the sauce thickened up a lot to the point where I think it's best eaten in one sitting, not left over. Plus there was WAY more than 4 servings there...at least 6, maybe even 8. Since it's not the best left over you might want to scale down the servings a bit.

Bavarian Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
Very good for a pudding-like cake filling, it did what I needed it to do. However, I was looking for a good bavarian cream, as I was trying to replicate a cake from our town's finest European bakery (anyone from Kalamazoo should know who I am talking about!)for my mother's birthday. This turned out more like thickened, almost jelly-like, whipped topping, no bavarian cream taste here. I wanted a true, bavarian cream filling and this just did not have the taste. May have been better with a pudding base instead of the whipping cream.

Easy PHILLY OREO Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
Good for starting out, but the actual cheesecake filling needed something extra. I added some sour cream and heavy cream to the mixture since it was just cream cheese, knew it needed something else to provide a better, creamier cheesecake. I still think I should have added more, possibly another brick of cream cheese as well as more sour and heavy cream. I made a choc. drizzle for the top of 2 oz. melted semi sweet choc. and 1/3 c. heavy cream. After setting in the fridge the choc. was hardened a bit and I think it really helped the flavor of the cake. I think the recipe is a bit too plain written as-is, needs a bit of doctoring.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
OUTSTANDING! I have been wanting to try this recipe for so long and I am glad I did! So simple and easy it's almost too good to be true. You would think it needs something else, but it sure doesn't! I followed the recipe but added about 3/4 cup of crushed croutons to the top to add a crunch, and baked for about 20 min. instead of microwaving. I would highly recommend adding a bread crumb topping and baking to complete this amazing dip. I used tortilla chips and baked french bread chunks, can't decide which one was better liked, it was great both ways. This is my new go-to dip, and the most important recommendation would probably be to double the recipe, because it sure doesn't stick around for long!

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
Excellent! My boyfriend HATES home-made pizza (just found out last night after 5 years LOL!) but he said it was pretty good and was one of the better home-made pizzas he has ever had. I brushed some melted parmesan garlic butter on the crust before and during baking. However, I would recommend to add more flour than the 2 1/2 cups before you turn out the dough, I had quite the sticky mess for a while and added so much flour to get the right consistency it would have been easier to just mix in some of the additional flour before moving to the next step. Should have used my dough hooks and stand mixer, maybe that will help next time. Excellent crust though, would recommend to bake for a bit before adding toppings if using a standard metal pizza pan. This makes a great pizza!

Pumpkin Bars I

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
These were fantastic, although I deducted one star for the final product. I used a large cookie sheet for thinner, more bar like shape and size (even though it didn't really help make them more bars than cake). These were great and super easy and quick, and I will continue making, however I was hoping for a dense, chewy, moist bar, and what I got was a pumpkin cake. Very good, well enjoyed, and will make again, however I really wanted bars to pass around and ended up with a huge amount of pumpkin cake.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
100% the best! I made this as a surprise wedding cake for my cheesecake-loving brother and sister in law. They raved more about this cheesecake than any other desert I have ever seen them eat. This turned out PERFECT, not a single crack, no bubbles, it cut, came out and held together perfectly. I made a couple slight changes based on other reviews. I baked the crust for about 15 min. and also added some sugar and increased the butter to 1/2 cup, which made a perfect crust. Also reduced the flour to 2 heaping Tblsp. I baked at 325 for 50 minutes, then reduced to 250 for another 20-30 min, cooled in the oven for over an hour, removed to cooling rack, covered for bit, then uncovered, then finally to the fridge about 2 hours after it was done baking. This made a perfect cheesecake- no browning on top, perfectly set, no cracks, and did not fall apart once cut and served.

7-Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
EXCELLENT! We are cheese lovers, so after spreading the sausage/bean mixture in the bottom of that pan we added a ton of cheese and baked it for a bit just to melt the cheese, then added the rest of the ingredients on top. Only 4 of us sharing the dip and we were scraping the dish!

Spooky Witches' Fingers

This is a great recipe, and very fun to make for Halloween. However, my mom has this recipe straight out of "Quick and Easy" cooking magazine...

Five Minute Ice Cream

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
This was fantastic, but gave me quite a hard time. I am sure this is worth 5 stars given a perfect preparation, but mine was quite problematic. Since I don't have a food processor, I used my blender. Apparently my blender totally sucks, b/c it didn't blend or chop a thing. I ended up having to use my stand mixer (only thing that would work!) and even though it worked, it took soo long that it was a soupy, lumpy mess by the time it was done. I am sure the ice cream consitency has to do with the quick blending process while the fruit is still frozen, but mine took so long it had to be frozen for over an hour to get it firm, and even then it was not what I would consider firm enough to be called ice cream. I uses peaches and it was very tasty, just definately not 5 minutes for me. I will have to try again once I blow coin on a nice blender or food processor.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
My first apple pie- a huge success! Everyone raved and my whole family loved it! Everyone was so proud of my first real pie attempt and scored tremendous approval from my 90 year old Great Grandma! I used the dough recipe in one of the original Betty Crocker cookbooks. I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe! Your Grandma Ople would be so proud of your sharing of her recipe and all the people and families that get to enjoy her pie! Thanks a million!
