Baked Mac and Cheese for One

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2014
Very versatile recipe! I double it for dinners for two and when I'm in a hurry I substitute the cheddar for 3-4 Kraft singles and it works out just fine. Then I sprinkle the top with some grated Parmesan and I make it my own. I also didn't have Worcestershire sauce when I first tried the recipe and so instead I used soy sauce which worked out fine so now I just use that instead. It's a basic recipe that works out lovely and I've made it many times and it has come out perfectly in every instance.

Potato Chip Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
Used Jalepeno Kettle chips and it was really tasty. I baked it in the oven so that's the 4 stars reason. Didn't add the seasoning since the chips had plenty, but did add a few tbls. of seasoned bread crumbs. Baked as recommended by others at 400F for 25 minutes.

Triple the Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
Finally found this recipe after losing it for so long! I made this with butter flavored Crisco(remember to add the 1 1/2 tbls of water to the 3/4 c. of Crisco or the cookies won't come out correctly). They tasted as if they were from an expensive bakery, and I finally had my favorite cookie again! Thanks Laria! As for the complaints about the crystallized ginger, I saw that 1/2 cup was way too much for what amounts to a quart of cookie dough so even without reading a review I reduced it by half. Additionally, if you don't like too much ginger then a recipe titled "Triple the Ginger" isn't going to be for you.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
4 out of 5 because I modified it. I used Lipton dry vegetable soup mix instead, and veggie stock. Added mushrooms and celery instead, which helped to keep it from getting too thick. No potatoes because I didn't have any. Cooked on high for 4 hours and let warm for 1 hour. THe last step isn't needed unless you add too much liquid in.

Easy PHILLY OREO Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
I made this because I wanted an alternative to a graham cracker crust and it was perfect. The only thing I did differently was that I made it a marbled cheesecake because I had some shaved semi-sweet chocolate I wanted to use. It cam out beautifully, I included a picture on my profile of the finished product.

Simple Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
Pretty good--I only changed a few things-I used pureed tomatoes since they were on sale, and from experience I can say that it made the chili nice and thick. I also added a roasted bell peppers and that gave it a really good flavor.

Ooey-Gooey Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
I changed it a bit, but it's an awesome recipe. Original recipe used only nuts, but since I only had dried fruit I used that. So my version has dried peaches, apricots, apples, pears and raisins. Instead of melting the butter to spread on the dough, I softened and mixed it with Parkay and spread it on like that so that the rolls would be soft. I've put up a picture of my finished version.

Orange Pork

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
4 stars for the concept and I made some minor changes. For the pork, I cut the chops into strips as others did, and for the sauce, instead of using water I used ginger ale and used brown sugar instead of white. Reduced the amount of sugar to counter the sugar in the ginger ale, and tripled the amounts for 3x the sauce.

Potatoes and Carrots Au Gratin

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
I read the other comments and parboiled the potatoes and chilled them before slicing and baking. Cooked in the allotted time once that was done. My family liked it but I feel it needs more flavor. Will add a bit of seasoning next time.

Cheesy Potato and Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
Great chowder! Only one thing I recommend: Add the cheese to the chowder on an individual basis(to each serving instead of the whole batch). This way it'll reheat better if you have any left. Also you can control the consistency and amount of cheese in your serving. sauteed the onion and celery separately in a little bacon fat(just my preference, not required) and used that pan to make the gravy. Worked like a charm.

Pecan Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
Giving it a four because I changed it in use, but it's a good recipe. This being said, I made some changes based on the other reviews. I cut the sugar in half, replacing it with an equal amount of ripe bananas. I used 1 less egg, and I used low-fat sour cream instead of regular sour cream. In doing so I ended up with a lower fat, lower sugar bread, that because I used the ripe bananas, was very moist and just the right sweetness. It came out very, very good this way. Hope this helps.

Simple Country Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
Decided to try this and it's a great concept for BBQ ribs. It's quick, and fast, but most of all it's tasty. I've given it 4 stars only because I altered it in my use. Instead of water, I used red wine. Then I boiled it for 1 hour. After that, I put the ribs(pork) in the oven at 350 for 15 minutes, then dipped them in the sauce they boiled in, instead of basting, then popped the ribs back in the oven for another 15 minutes. The result was very tender and tasty. Will make again with chicken next time.

Salmon Fillets with Creamy Dill

Reviewed: May 29, 2007
The recipe is okay, except that it's a bit oily. The dill sauce keeps the salmon from rendering it's fat pockets, so in the end it's oilier then it should be. It's better to broil/bake the fish with a little salt and pepper, and to use the dill sauce as a dressing on the side of the fish when you plate it. Also I changed the recipe and used 2 parts yogurt and 1 part mayo, with dijon AND brown mustard, with a little Italian herbs and dill.

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: May 3, 2007
Was the perfect amount for my needs, and tasted perfect! Highly recommended and not too spicy despite the seemingly large amount of chili powder. My mother had it and commented that it wasn't too spicy. She was shocked when I told her how much chili powder it had. Will make again when I make enchiladas.
