Beefy Baked Ziti

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
very good with a few changes. First I used sausage instead of ground beef. Beef tends to be a bit bland for my tastes. Then I sauted garlic, basil, oregano, rosemary, and a dash of cayenne pepper with the onion. Otherwise kept it the same. My 4 star rating is without the changes, 5 stars with them. Very cheesy and flavorful that the whole family enjoyed. Thanks for the basic recipe Colleen!

Havana Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2012
This was very good but I cooked it for 8 hours instead of 6 so it fell apart into shredded pork. Will be excellent for sandwiches tomorrow.

3-Cheese Mostaccioli Bolognese

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
a great starting recipe. I figured on it being a bit bland from the reviews so I added some basil, oregano, black pepper, a dash of cayenne pepper, and 2 more cloves garlic. Used a lb of hot Italian sausage instead of ground beef. It turned out excellent. The cheeses really balanced the spices very well. My husband actually said I could have added more cayenne pepper (he likes spicy food). I thought it was great as is and mild enough for our kids to eat it without a struggle.

Tilapia Scaloppine

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
This was really good. After sitting a while the flavors get a bit strong so if you have any leftovers you should store the fish separate from the sauce. Had lots of leftover sauce so serving with pasta or rice is necessary if you want to use up all the sauce. Served with garlic cheese bread and a broccoli cauliflower mix. Will definitely make again! A very nice alternative to the cheese and butter coated fish.

Chicken Diablo

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
I thought it was pretty good, but something seemed to be missing. My kids didn't like it. They thought the sauce was too spicy. They ate it after I took off some of the excess sauce.

Tangy Apple Chicken Loaf

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
I made this with turkey instead of chicken and thought that it was really good. Accidentally added too much sage so it had a strong sage flavor. I thought it tasted like turkey and stuffing and I enjoyed it. The rest of my family would have had regular meatloaf instead.

Yellow Rice with Meat

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
This is pretty good but I think a different sauce is needed. Chili sauce is ok but my husband thought that maybe a green sauce would actually be better. Will probably try again with changes.

Dominican Style Oatmeal

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
My kids love this oatmeal and even my picky husband will eat it without complaining. Sometimes add raisins, but it isn't necessary.

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
this was pretty good, but it turned out a little dry. I think next time I'd add 1/4 c. sour cream for a little tang.

Southern Apple Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
This was a very good recipe. I did add a lot more mayo though because without it the recipe was way too dry.

Pineapple Chicken Tenders

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
These were excellent. Marinated for 12 hrs, then grilled with pineapple. Took the marinade and boiled it for a few minutes and added a tbs of soy sauce to tone down the sweetness a bit. Then I thickened it up with a bit of cornstarch. Will definitely make again.

Creamy Pesto Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2013
This was a great recipe. I did saute some mushrooms, onions & garlic to the sauce. My cream did curdle a bit because I forgot to remove it from the heat when I added the parmesan. After it was done I threw in some tomatoes that were getting a little over ripe in my fridge. It was a nice addition with the pesto cream sauce.

Seven Layer Tortilla Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
This was excellent! I did opt to use re-fried beans instead of pinto beans and next time I'd add a fresh jalapeno to the re-fried beans also.

Cheesy Quinoa Pilaf with Spinach

Teddy's Duck Gumbo

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2011
it turned out good but it seemed to be missing something. My husband and I couldn't put our finger on what it needed. I'd also add more spices since it seemed a bit weak. Leftovers had a stronger flavor.

Tasty Italian Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
I can't give it a 5 star because I had to modify it to get the flavors right. My modifications: 1Tbsp ground black pepper to the sauce, 3/4 c. white wine and 1/2 c water, then simmered for 15 mins. The chicken I cut in bite size pieces, coated in the flour mix, and then browned quickly in olive oil to lock in moisture. Then I added the sauce and let cook on med-low for 10-15 mins. I then served with rice and a green salad.

Tender 'n' Tangy Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
these were good ribs however the sauce was really runny. I thickened it up with some cold water and cornstarch in a separate saucepan.

Creamy Apple Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
This was just an ok apple pie recipe. I didn't think there was anything really special about it though. Maybe adding some caramel ice cream topping over the top would give it a little more zing.
