Mom's Red Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
This was good, nothing special though. I followed reciped (except instead of cream of broccoli I used cream of chicken). I even tried to add additional seasoning, but these potatoes came out bland in my opinion. Added chicken sausage to the mixture as well, which helped flavor the dish a little bit.

Best Ever Shrimp Dip

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
Sorry, not a fan. Bland and runny. Used 1/2 mayo and 1/2 sour cream as others suggested. Even tried to add more seasonings and veggies to add flavor. Didn't work.

Southwestern Macaroni and Cheese with Adobo Meatballs

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
I made this over the weekend for some friends. Although I did change up the recipe (used already made/frozen meatballs and added adobo seasoning to it), still was a hit. I personally thought the recipe was 4 stars, but this turned out to be the favorite dish of the night amongst everyone else. Definitely be patient and let all the cheese melt together before adding the pasta. The combination of the different cheeses was great (I actually used a 4 c of a mexican blend rather than 4 c of plain cheddar cheese). Tastes great reheated the next day as well.

Cool Whipped Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2010
If you are not a fan of the thick, super sweet frosting, this is the perfect recipe for you. I love cool whip and this frosting tasted much lighter. I used jello cookies n/ cream instant pudding (the 4.5 oz), a little more low fat cool whip than the recipe called for, 1/2 the skim milk, and the vanilla. It tasted very good. However, I will say it doesn't stick to cake/cupcakes like a normal store bought frosting, but it still stays on pretty well and tastes fantastic. For how simple this recipe was, I would highly recommend it.

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
Although this recipe tasted fine, I did not believe it tasted like authentic jambalaya at all. It was more like a pot of meat/seafood and veggies. Not very flavorful. I had to add a lot more spices and it still seemed bland. Good recipe for those that cannot tolerate any heat. This recipe definitely makes a lot of servings.

Cheesy Creamed Spinach

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
This was yummy. I made half the recipe (which still made a lot). I used fat free half and half (rather than heavy cream) and used a lot less than the recipe called for. I used a Italian shredded cheese mix (tastes great). I definitely put too much cheese in (I am a cheese lover, but there is definitely a thing as too much cheese for this recipe). I added a pinch of nutmeg as well.

Country Pound Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
Very nice pound cake. Although I will say, I LOVE Sarah Lee pound cake and it does not taste like Sarah Lee; but still good. I used all butter in place of shortening. Also omitted lemon and added more vanilla. The cooking time was perfect (as long as you are using a 10 in loaf pan). Makes a lot, so make sure there are plenty of people around to eat this pound cake!

Bacon Water Chestnut Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
Yummy and so easy to make. I used a whole chesnut per half piece of bacon (rather than half a chesnut). I used a spicy chili sauce, which I thought was fabulous (my sister thought they were too spicy, but I thought they were perfect). The bacon was nice and crispy. You can even make these ahead of time and serve later (turned out great even after storing in the fridge). Great sauce that can be used on many different things.

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2009
Very yummy and so easy to make! I used an orea crust instead. Also froze reese's cups and chopped them up and added them on top. Made this for a birthday dinner and everyone loved it. Excellent frozen or in the fridge.

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2009
Excellent and super easy! Changes: instead of water I added half chicken broth and half tomato sauce. Used both green and red bell pepper. Also added corn. Did not need to add any salt. Tasty the first day you make it and just as good as leftovers days after.

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
These were very rich! I definitely cut down on the amount of butter (and obviously still very rich). I took the suggestions of previous users and made sure to refrigerate the mixture prior to adding the chocolate/peanut butter topping. After pouring the chocolate/peanut butter topping, I placed back in the fridge again, but made sure to cut them in very small squares prior to hardening completely. I made these for a cookout the day before; very simple to make but incredibly fattening. Would definitely suggest only make for a large group of people, unless you are looking to gain 10 pounds!

Artichoke Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
This was unique. Although I don't know if I would call it salsa. Very light and mild. I added 12 oz of artichokes; omitted olives and added capers.

Fresh Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
Have been making this for years. Simple but delicious. Adjust type and amount of peppers based on the level of heat you can take. I often put this on top of my salads instead of using dressing. Healthy and tasty!

Creamy Pesto Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
This was ok. I don't think the taste was worth all the calories. I used fat free half and half instead of heavy cream, and definitely cut back on the butter, and I always use whole wheat pasta. Added fish instead of shrimp because that's what I had on hand. Diced tomatoes and green onions would definitely taste good with it as well. Good recipe, tastes fine, I just wouldn't make again because of all the calories.

Cool Whip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
I was anticipating enjoying these cookies, I'm a big fan of cool whip. I was very disappointed. I thought the cookies were very bland and tastelss. I did use light cool whip (but I use light everything and it never bothers me). I would not make these again, sorry!

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
The soup was ok. I definitely made a lot of changes (many of which were suggested by other viewers). Used a lot more spices and still did not consider this soup to be spicy. Added a lot more onion and corn, a jalapeno, spanish paprika, to name a few. This recipe definitely makes a lot; much more than 8 servings. I ended up freezing half the soup I made.

Asparagus and Water Chestnuts

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
I used fresh asparagus. Very easy, healthy dish to make. I added a lot more onion and garlic to the dish, because it did seem a bit bland. If you are looking for simple and healthy, this is a good recipe.

Clark's Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
This is a very good quiche; not your traditional quiche but still very good. And extremely easy to make. I definitely chose to use low fat/fat free ingredients when I could. I hate mushrooms, so omitted that, and didn't have any ham on hand either. Recipe still turned out great. Also, I chose to use the ready made baking graham cracker pie crust (usually used for cheesecake). The sweetness with the saltiness of the dish are incredibily tasty (that's how my mom used to make quiche growing up and I always loved it). Next time I would suggest cutting back on some of the cheese and substituting it with a little bit of swiss cheese as well. Would make a great combination.
