Warm Blue Cheese Dip with Garlic and Bacon

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2006
Holy cow that is good! I served it with french bread and sliced pears. To the pears I added walnuts which made it PERFECT.

Chicken Casserole Mississippi

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2006
For how much fat was in this casserole, it didn't taste that great. The recipe wasn't real specific either. If had known this would fill TWO 2 quart casseroles, I would have cut it in half. This was way too much work for such a bland, blah, blah, blah casserole.

Baked Lamb Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2006
Very tasty. A very simple and tasty way to serve lamb. I used shoulder chops which tasted good but next time, I will spend the extra money and get chops...much easier to eat, I think. I also added garlic to the egg mixture which added a nice flavour. Next time, I think I will add a bit of rosemary too. Excellent.

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2006
Yum! I didn't hav basil so I used oregano instead...tasted fine. Next time, I will add garlic and maybe some cayenne pepper but this is a very tasty way to serve veggies. The boys in my house, devoured this dish which says something. Great recipe.

Amish Yumazuti

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2006
This was just ok. I had to do a fair amount of "doctoring" to make it eatable. I added plenty more spice (salt, pepper, cayenne, celery salt, garlic powder) and I think next time, I would add more meat. The cooking time seemed suspect too. Why do you need to bake this for an hour when all of the ingredients are already cooked? My casserole was bubbling at 35 minutes and the cheese was drying out so I took it out and it was fine. The only reason I'm not giving this recipe a 1 or a 2 is because this casserole is great for a big family and is very cheap to make. Also, I used macaroni noodles instead of egg and swiss cheese instead of cheddar, this gave it a more grown up taste.

Hello Dollies I

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2006
These were terrific. Next time, I will layer the coconut, pecans and then the chocolate chips but that's just my personal preference.

Ma Bethie's Zucchini Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2006
This was good. Next time I will cook the onions a bit first since they were too crunchy for my taste. Also, there is no need for all of the steps in layering the mixing. I coated the zucchini and then just added all the rest together. Next time also, I will add more zucchini and maybe one less egg...a little too eggy. and don't be afraid to add some more garlic and cayenne...makes it super tasty. With a few changes, this is a very delicious and special way to do zucchini.

Buffalo Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2006
Very tasty! I took the hint from a couple of other reviewers and added buffalo wing sauce. Instead of using the egg whites, to moisten, I used Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Wing sauce and it was amazing! Pretty spicy but exactly the taste I was looking for. The men in my house went nuts over these. Will make again.

Apple Crunch Pie II

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2006
This was pretty good. The apples were still crunchy which I don't prefer but all in all, this is a solid apple pie recipe. Next time I will omit the walnuts as they tasted like kind of an afterthought. On second thought, I may add them in with the apples...that might work.

Tammy's Tempting Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2006
This is a terrfic cheeseball!! I don't like ranch flavouring and I loved this. The only change I made is instead of almonds, I rolled the ball in bread crumbs that had a little melted butter in them. VERY good. Will use this for fancy and no-fancy occasions alike.

Raspberry Trifle

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2006
This was WAY too sweet. I'm from a british background and I know my Nana would push her plate away after the first bite. If I do this again (which is doubtful), I would half the sugar in the cream cheese mixture and not sweeten the cream at all. Also, I would double the frozen berries. This trifle was very, very dry. In traditional trifle, the sponge cake is supposed to be saturated in liquid. A very dissapointing dessert.

Onion Soup Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2007
So, this one was just ok. The wild rice was very similar to eating a pile of small sticks. And there was LOTS of liquid left over from which I made a nice gravy. The chops were good but I would use plain white or brown rice next time.

Black Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2007
Good flavor but not as moist as I would have hoped...and I didn't overcook. I took a reviewer's advice and used coffee instead of water. That bumped the chocolate flavor tremendously. I think I may do that from now on when making chocolate cake. I will keep searching for the perfect chocolate cake recipe.

Meg's Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
These were very good. I added 1 cup raisins in with the chocolate chips. Otherwise, I think the cookies would have been too doughy. Also, you don't need to grease the pans or wait 5 minutes to take them off the sheet. Very yummy, crispy but soft cookies. Oh, and use real butter, it tastes way better.

Cinnamon Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2007
I did not care for this recipe. But my husband and brother in law liked them and that's who I made them for so I guess they passed. I omitted the cinnamon chips for a healthier muffin....I'm assuming that's what made them taste good. Although I would never eat these, the weird boys that live with me will so I will make them again.

Chicken Pot Pie VIII

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2007
This was good with a few modifications. I cooked all veggies before putting them in the pie...it seemed to me that the cooking time wouldn't have been long enough to make them squishy enough (squishy-ness is a prerequisite for veggies in my house). I also added more onion, garlic and peas for flavor. All in all, this is an excellent fall supper. Will make again.

Barley Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
This is very yummy and filling with a few changes made. First, I used turkey sausage instead of bacon. I added way more veggies and didn't rest them on top as suggested- I just dumped them all together. Also, instead of dark meat, I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts. All in all, a great recipe to play with- it's an excellent way to use up all the odd bits of veggies in your fridge!
