Graham Streusel Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2011
This cake was a cinch to make and absolutely delicious! It came out beautifully in my bundt pan. I only used 1 stick of butter for the steusel, simply because I felt like that was plenty. Oh, and I didn't have butter flavored extract, but I did have orange and that was perfect! I will definitely be making this one again!

Fiesta Pinwheels

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
I am thoroughly disappointed with this :-( I should have know the taco seasoning would be overpowering, but yet I just dumped in 2 TBSP and blech!! I also don't care for the brownish color it made the filling; it's just not visually appealing IMO. I think all the other great ingredients could hold their own w/o the taco seasoning. I am taking this to my friend's family gathering, who are Mexican, and they are all going to know the "white girl" brought it. It's X-Mas day so I can't just run up to the store, but I might try to pull something else out of my hat and not even take it...

Vodka Mocha Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
This cake is OMG good!! Thanks to the previous review, I used the right amount of instant pudding. I did, however, use a different glaze, but I'm sure the cake would have been just as good with the one called for in the recipe. I would definitely recommend it and have already had to give out the recipe twice!

Devil's Steak Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
My DBF was skeptical when I wanted to try this recipe over his usual homemade steak sauce, but he loved it! The sauce was very thin and is definitely on the sweet side, but I loved the sweet/spicy combo. I did sub blackberry jam, cider vinegar and ketchup b/c I had all these ingredients on hand and therefore did not have to buy a thing to make it. I'm sure the recipe is equally good despite these substitutions. I will certainly make this again.

Mustard Crusted Tilapia

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
I made this exactly as directed (used country dijon mustard), but doubled the paste. I thought it was very good and loved the simplicity of this recipe. I will very likely make this again. It is a good, fast, affordable fish dish!

Stuffed Kielbasa

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2008
I decided to make this last night to use up some leftover mashed potatoes and invited over a friend of mine who, like me, loves sausage & sauerkraut! I used one kielbasa and one turkey smoked sausage. Since I had both swiss cheese and cojack on hand I just used both of those. My friend just loved it, but didn't think he would like it as much without the German-Style Green Beans (also on this site) that I made to go with it because of the sweetness that they added to the "sauer". And neither one of us could tell the difference in the sausages. In my opinion, I didn't think it was worth all the trouble to make the "sausage boats".I would rather just have mashed potatoes topped with sauerkraut and the sausage on the side w/mustard. My boyfriend really liked this as well, so because of that I will likely make this again with only turkey sausage, probably just whatever cheese I have on hand and the German-Style Green Beans as the side!

Different Chicken Cordon Bleu

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
I thought this was really good. I added some Dijon mustard as suggested by previous reviewers (Grey Poupon Country Dijon) and I really think it made the dish. I also added onion, melted butter and water to the stuffing mix and then topped the casserole with it. I don't know how the topping would have come out otherwise, but I would certainly recommend doing it this way as the stuffing was nice and moist. This was super easy to make and I will definitely make it again.

Uncooked Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2007
This was very easy and very good. I didn't mix in the bananas or the cookies and instead let everyone put together their own parfaits. Not quite a 5 star dessert, but if you're looking for quick and easy you can't lose!

Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2007
I chilled the dough overnight and still had a very hard time rolling it out. The cookies tasted good, but in my opinion, just aren't worth all the trouble.

Heavenly Angel Food Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2007
This was my first crack at an Angel Food Cake and I am so impressed with myself! The cake came out perfect! I followed the advice of another cook from a different recipe and baked it at 325 for the first 20 min and then increased the temp to 350 for the remainder. I also added chopped canned peaches to the batter which didn't hurt it at all. This is now my official Angel Food Cake recipe!

Vegetable Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2007
I just made this dip today and it turned out so good I wanted to share the recipe, but see that it's already on here! The proportions in my recipe are a little different: 1 cup mayo, 1 cup sour cream, 3 TBSP each of Beau Monde, parsley & dried minced onion & 3 tsp dill weed. I could not find Beau Monde at my local grocier, so I looked on line and found the ingredients for it: 1 tablespoon ground cloves 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon 1 tablespoon salt 1 tablespoon ground bay leaf 1 tablespoon ground allspice 2 tablespoons ground pepper 1 tablespoon ground white pepper 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1 teaspoon ground mace 1 teaspoon celery seed In a small mixing bowl, mix together all ingredients. Pour into a tightly closed jar and store in a cool, dry place. Yields approximately 9 tablespoons. I had everything except the ground mace and white pepper, put it all together and the dip came out great! I have to admit that I didn't use a full 3 TBSP as I was afraid it would be overpowering. I served this dip with Lays potato chips, but tried it with multi-grain tortilla chips and really like it with those! I know it's a long review, but I hope you find it helpful! :)

Pork Chops with Delicious Gravy

Reviewed: May 9, 2007
I was a little hesitant to make this due to the "not quite a 4 star" rating, but figured I would go for it anyway. It was actually very good! It was easy to make and all I had to buy was the meat and more sour cream. My pork chops came out a little tough (I'm sure this was my fault) and even though I doubled the gravy recipe we still wished there was more! Overall it turned out to be a great dinner with garlic mashed potatoes and sauted asparagus. I will likely make this again.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2007
Just like most people, I too, loved this dip! I was voted MVP at the Superbowl party for it and just made it again for a March Madness party. I use a rotisserie chicken, reduced fat cream cheese and light ranch dressing. The last time I made it I just "winged" it and didn't measure anything. I like to serve it out of the crockpot because I think it's best warm. I also like to sprinkle some sliced green onions over the top and serve it with celery sticks and chicken-in-a-biscuit crackers. Mmmm...so good!

Orange Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2007
I made this recipe for my Christmas dinner last year. I'm always looking for unique dishes to "wow!" everyone and this just didn't quite do that. It was good, but not great. My Mother-In-Law said she really liked it, but I don't know if she was just being nice?!

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2007
I thought this was really good. It was very easy to make and I had all the ingredients on hand (except for the salmon!). Makes a great light meal with rice and roasted veggies. I will likely make this again.

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2007
I thought this was very good. I love spicy foods and didn't think it was too hot by any means. I used turkey instead of chicken and fresh roasted Anaheim green chilis and jalepenos because they are available where I live. The next time I make this I will probably cut down on the cumin a little bit.

Great recipe! Very easy to make and I had all the ingredients on hand. I used it in a pasta salad last week and liked it so much I made it again the other night for my dinner salad. Thanks for sharing!
