Kristin's Mexican Cornbread

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
I didn't really like cornbread until I had this recipe. The kids and husband love it. My sister in-law makes this, and my brother and parents (not cornbread eaters either) love it as well. We use different cheeses, depending on what we have on-hand. Usually we use Flagship (made locally at Pikes Place Market in Seattle) and cheddar cheeses. This is a great recipe to take to or make for a BBQ.

Flatlander Chili Twist

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
This review is for the original recipe: This is, by far, the best chili I've ever had. Husband and the kids loved it. We froze some in lunch size portions which husband took to work instead of frozen storebought dinners (much healthier and tastier). We substituted tomato juice with tomato sauce, and substituted the tomato sauce the recipe called for with stewed tomatoes. We also added one fresh diced jalepeno, no seeds. We made Mexican Cornbread from this site, and it was great! (We froze that too so husband could take a piece with his chili for lunch.) Love it!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2010
Used 1 can chicken broth in lieu of water, added cumin, salt and pepper while cooking. Also added frozen peas and corn. 1 pkg of biscuit dough put in two hours before it was done. Came out great!

Fruit Leather

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
Wasn't cooked after 10 hours, gave up since there seemed to be no end in sight and was wasting a lot of natural gas leaving oven door open. Perhaps you could make modifications to make it work, but the recipe as-is doesn't work.

Soft Garlic Breadsticks

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
We divided the dough into two portions, instead of 20. We rolled this out like pizza dough, scored the dough into wedges, then brushed with the Garlic Butter recipe from this site, and added some grated cheese. We cooked them according to direction and dipped them in Exquisite Pizza Sauce (recipe also from this site). They tasted much better than the breadsticks you can get from the national papa chain of take and bake pizzas! Thank you!

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
My husband and kids loved this. I didn't care for it myself. Although it isn't beef or pot roast, it had that same kind of dish/taste, which isn't a style that I like.

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
The recipe itself was good. We've never had Tilapia before and didn't like the taste of this particular fish, but that has nothing to do with the recipe.

Tortilla and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
Very good. Substituted a rotisserie chicken for chicken breast (cheaper and faster), used 4 cups chicken broth and 2 cups of water instead of 6 cups water, (since we didn't boil the chicken), and substituted corn for hominy.

Sue's Taco Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
Really good salad. We used a Jalepeno Ranch dressing which made it even better. Yummy!

Over the Fire Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
We have cooked this twice now, and it can be tricky. The first time, we did a test run before we went camping and cooked it on the gas grill. We substituted yellow onions with green onions and substituded cream of mushroom soup with cream of chicken soup, and add more cheese than the recipe calls for. The packet we tested after 20 minutes still had raw potatoes and took 40 minutes to cook. The other two packets we didn't test, and, what I didn't realize at the time was my husband had cooked the other two packets over direct heat, cooking them faster and they were burned by the time we caught it (after 40 minutes). The burning was our fault. The second time we cooked this when we went camping. We skipped stirring the ingredients in a bowl. After spraying both sides of tin foil with olive oil non-stick spray, we just compiled the ingredients directly on the tin foil. (We were tent camping and wanted as few dishes to wash as possible.) We again substitued green onions with yellow onions and cream of mushroom soup with cream of chicken soup, and added more cheese than the recipe calls for. We didn't use any butter. We layered the potatoes and onions and kind of tossed with our clean hands, then added the rest of the ingredients. We cooked over charcoal briquettes in a camp fire, but had to add some pieces of kindling occasionally to keep the fire hot enough to cook. We cooked the packets for about 30 minutes, and they were perfect, not burned at all but cooked well.

Jenn's Out Of This World Spaghetti and Meatballs

Reviewed: May 18, 2008
WAAAAAYY to sweet. I cut the sugar down to 3 TBS as someone suggested, and that was still WAY too much! It ruined the batch of sauce, in my opinion, no matter what I did I couldn't overcome having so much sugar. Perhaps a good way to cook meatballs, but this is the traditional way to cook them anyway, nothing new with cooking them in the sauce.

Muffuletta

Reviewed: May 16, 2008
GREAT sandwich! I made this the night before, cut it into portions for the kids and husband, wrapped it in plastic wrap. The next morning, everyone just had to grab their portion, some fruit, and a snack and their lunch was ready to go. My husband's co-workers could smell it while he was having lunch and wanted some. The kids' friends at school could smell it and wanted one as well, one friend even had a taste of the tapenade and tried to jokingly steal the sandwich from my daughter. The kids and husband all came home raving about how good it was for lunch. I look forward to making this for our trips to the beach with extended family this summer. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Strawberry Lemonade Ice Pops

Reviewed: May 16, 2008
These are great! I made them for the kids and poured them into molds. I had extra juice left and kept it in the fridge. When the kids had one of the pops, we cleaned the molds and re-filled them with the leftover juice. The kids liked having these as snacks after school. Since it's the same as giving them a glass of strawberry lemonade, I felt comfortable letting the kids have these as snacks, I didn't feel like I was giving them dessert. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Chocolate Fudge Pops

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
We made these last summer, the kids loved them. These remind me of the Pudding Pops they had in the 1980's.

Tater Tot Casserole III

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
This is a good recipe, we omit half of the butter, and don't usually make it with cornflakes. The recipe needed a little punch, so we added a pepperjack cheese instead of cheddar, which helps a lot. The biggest drawback to this recipe is that although it tastes great and is easy to make, it is so unhealthy, 150% of your daily recommended fat intake in one serving. Ugh. We only make it once in a while (it's ok to have junk food occasionally).

Smoked Salmon Frittata

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
I made this for a family brunch and we loved it. I did omit the olives as I wasn't sure about the egg/salmon/olive combo. Our family (my brothers, sisters, parents, and kids) loves to have crab omelet, and I was waiting for the comments about the Smoked Salmon Frittata not being as good as that. However, I heard nothing but complements about the flavor. It is definitely the type of dish that would be served by upper-scale restaurants here in the Seattle area and is restaurant-quality.
