Blueberry Coffee Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2006
I always love to "tweak" recipes to make them my own...however, I made this exactly as written & it was the most delicious coffee cake I've ever had! Leave the blueberry layer in the middle & go for the whole amount of streusel topping - delicious! My only modification was the baking time - my oven only needed 50 minutes, so don't overbake it.

Chili Rellenos Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2006
I took everyone's suggestions: 3 eggs, enchilada sauce, 1 lb. ground beef seasoned with cumin. It was good. Definatly needed the beef. My family liked it too - not outstanding or something to get too excited about, but worth trying for something different.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2006
This was a very good soup. Sliced avocado & cheddar shreds were delicious on top along with some crushed tortilla strips. Next time, I will make a few changes: Use more chicken, add black beans, all chicken broth instead of water. I may even rev up the spices next time.

Shrimp and Mushroom Linguini with Creamy Cheese Herb Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2006
De-lish! Per other's suggestions, I used 1/2 the butter, 5 oz. cream cheese, and chicken broth instead of water - It was fast & yummy!

Justin's Hoosier Daddy Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2006
Good chili - I am one that likes a thicker chili & would recommend using less chicken broth. Also, I used less than 2 T. chili powder & no red pepper flakes, but 1/2 t. cayenne pepper which made it way too spicy for our family. It had good flavor, and I will try it again with modifications - I only gave it 4 stars - still very good, but not knock-your-socks-off good!

Baked Potato Soup V

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
This was a delicious soup - loved by the whole family! I used a package of pre-cooked Hormel bacon, threw in all of the cheese & most of the onions, and used 1% milk. It made a huge amount for our family of 5 - I will make it again soon!

Clam Sauce with Linguine

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2006
Delicious & easy! Will make again, a bit fishy tasting - will try a different brand of clams next time. I bought the cheaper clams.

Chicken Chimichangas with Green Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2006
The whole family loved these! A very easy & satisfying dinner. I served them over shredded lettuce & one chimichanga was plenty for each person. I used a cold rotisserie chicken - This is a new family favorite!

Cream of Cauliflower Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2006
Sorry, I tried to love this soup. I actually would give it 3.5 stars - 4 is pushing it - My children (13, 12, & 9) did not like it as much and rated it between 2.5-3. I will only rate something 5 star that the whole family loves & that I would make again. I did use just 1/2 c. milk + 1/2 c. half & half, half of an onion & half of the swiss cheese. I did not puree it, but mashed it in the pot for added texture (a little too much texture). It had too much wine in it, maybe too sophisticated of a flavor for my kids. If you are going to try this, consider pureeing half of the soup and using 1/4 c. wine for a more family-friendly soup.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2006
Delicious! My whole family loved this recipe! I cut back on the butter to 4 T. and doubled the sauce, as suggested. I did not increase the wine amount though. Instead of cream, I used 1 c. half & half and used 3/4 c. of 1% milk. I just couldn't bring myself to use all cream. It was delicious & would even try using more milk/less cream next time.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
A confusing meal. Artichoke dip atop chicken breasts - we wanted to eat it with crackers. It tasted fine, no one in our family would want me to make it again though. The chicken took a long time to cook through. I used 1/2 mayo and 1/2 sour cream as recommended by others. An interesting idea, just not our style.

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2006
I loved this bruchetta recipe! I had my oven on 375 for another recipe & toasted my bread first, until crisp (not browned)with no added oil. Then I baked them again at that temp. with the topping on until the cheese melted. This made the bruchetta stay crunchy all evening. I would also recommend buying 2 baguttes. I ended up having enough topping for 1 1/2 baguette slices. Oh, and I used 2 cans of diced tomatoes for the fresh. It really helps the tomatoes stay on the bruchetta & makes this recipe even quicker to make!

Florentine Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2006
Good, not great. Maybe because I didn't use marinated artichokes. I don't know, maybe I'm too in love with my other mayo-based artichoke dip. It was good & people liked it - it didn't fly off the party table as much as my other dishes...

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2006
Great flavor combination - my non-stuffing loving family ate it all. There were no Thanksgiving leftovers! I used sage flavored pork sausage - and cut back on the amount of sage seasoning. I baked it in a 9x13 pan and doubled the amount of chicken broth. I would have liked it to hold together a bit, and will experiment next time.

Scalloped Corn I

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
Yum! Cut the butter in half & used half the sugar with a Jiffy cornbread mix (which is already sweet). Just like Grandma's!

Feta Cheese and Bacon Stuffed Breasts

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
Great idea! I however, was extremely lazy & in a hurry: just put individually frozen chicken breasts in a baking dish(still frozen), threw all the ingredients on top without measuring(used hormel's bacon bits), and baked at 375 degrees. It was delicious served atop a bed of fresh spinach. The kids gobbled it up. Great combination of flavors!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2007
Very good! I used half the pepper, as suggested & added a little dried rosemary for more flavor. I also sauteed the onion & celery first in part of the butter & added 1/2 cup diced carrots. The family gave it a thumbs up - I will make it again.

Cheddar Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
I wouldn't say these are the best, but they were very good. The kids really liked them, nothing objectionable. I just didn't think they had much pizazz. They needed a spicier kick. Maybe more seasoning in the meat. I will try these again, maybe adding 1 and a half taco seasoning packets & medium salsa instead of mild. Nice & easy though - I made them all & had leftovers the next night! Serve atop lettuce shreds with a dollop of sour cream!

Denise's Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2007
Wow, this was a great recipe. I doubled it & served over jasmine rice. Served it with fresh orange wedges & the fam thought it was a wonderful compliment to the main dish. Changes made: used 4 tablespoons of peanut butter plus 2 tablespoons cornstarch (remember that I doubled the recipe) - the peanut butter didn't thicken it up enough for me. Also, I used 1 c. chopped peanuts, one larger pepper & kept the onions & cilantro at one bunch each (maybe a little less). A also did not double the cayenne pepper - just used a rounded 1/4 teaspoon. Perfect amount of spice for the adults & kids!

I've made this twice now & our family really enjoys it! I substitute chicken broth for the beer, but otherwise followed the recipe - Thanks! Yummy!
