Bean Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2009
I thought this was really good. I followed the ingredients except for the cheddar. I substituted a bag of Mexican cheese because that's what I had on hand. I also baked them in the oven at 350 for 8 or 9 minutes, flipping them halfway because they were curling. Next time I think I'll get my big electric griddle out and cook them with some olive oil. I was skeptical at first because I don't normally like black beans, but this surprised me. My husband liked it, and he's usually a big meat eater. He said it reminded him of Southwest Eggrolls. All we needed was some avocado ranch dip. We both agreed that it needed some seasoning, maybe taco seasoning. I'll definitely be fixing this one again. It's pretty cheap meal too!

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
This was so good! Since I was cooking for two, I halved the recipe except for the cheese and the broccoli. I used a 10oz. chopped broccoli square and a half of a 16 oz. bag of broccoli cuts. Followed another reviewer's advice and reserved some chicken broth to mix with the cornstarch instead of water. Hubby even had seconds. Froze leftovers. Served with some sweet cornbread, this rivals Quizno's.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
I made this without the peppers, onions, and mushrooms. It was very good. To make it easier on me I put the chicken in a ziplock bag to coat with the seasoning. I used fettucine florentine instead of linguine. I also used an extra teaspoon of cajun seasoning (Tony Chachere's Spice N' Herbs Seasoning). Came out very yummy. Definite keeper.

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
I'm a rather novice cook and even less of a baker. I made this yesterday for my two-year old's birthday party. I halved the recipe to frost a 13 x 9 cake. I had about a cup of frosting leftover. I used other reviewer's advice and made it with half butter and half shortening. I cut down on the salt because I used salted butter. At first when the frosting was done it tasted a little greasy, but I decided to go ahead and use it anyway. I had to stick it in a fridge for an hour before I could frost the cake. That must have helped because after I frosted the cake, it was delicious, light and sweet. I will definitely use this frosting from now on.

Baked Salmon Fillets Dijon

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
This was very very good. I'm usually not a fan of mustard but this was very yummy! Very easy to fix for just a few people too.

Unbelievable Spinach Calzones

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
My husband and I loved this! I did make some modifications. I scaled this recipe to four servings and with my additions below I had enough filling for 8 servings. Additions: 1/2 tsp. each of garlic powder and onion powder, 2 handfuls of fresh sliced mushrooms, and 1 (2.25oz) can of sliced black olives. I used a (13.5)can of Pillsbury pizza,but should have used two cans because I had a quart of filling leftover. Used an ice cream scooper to dish the filling onto 4 inch circles of dough. I did brush each calzone with olive oil and sprinkled Parmesan cheese on top. Served with pureed marinara sauce. Very Yummy!

Apple Orchard Punch

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
I made this for my son's first birthday party. The night before, I mixed everything except for the ginger ale. I froze four small 1/2 cup sized bowls full. At the time for the party I dumped the punch in a bowl, dropped in the frozen punch and poured in the ginger ale. I loved it although some thought it was too tart.

Easy French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
I love French Dips so I had to try this. I was pleasantly surprised. This was so easy to make and tasted great. I love it! The only suggestion I had was to add some onion powder. It is a great quick meal when you don't want to cook much.

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
I followed the recipe and added 1/2 cup white grape juice to cut the sweetness of the pineapple. Very nice.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
This was so delicious and easy! I made this for Mother's Day for both my mom and mom in law. I made the following changes according to other reviewers: used about 2 cups of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips and I substituted 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce for 1/2 the oil. The baking time took longer in my bundt pan and I turned down the temp to 325 or so near the end. It was so moist. I used powdered sugar as the recipe said. It stayed moist for days out of the refrigerator. This is a definite keeper.

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
This was great! I fixed this with 3 cups chopped fresh spinach instead of one, added 1/4 cup more Parmesan, and threw in a cup of sliced fresh mushrooms. Next time I will add a cup more mushrooms. Used a 19oz. bag of frozen cheese tortellini. My husband didn't care for the cheese kind (which I liked) and requested meat filled ones for next time. I may do half meat and half cheese. Overall it was very good. Very easy to make too!

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
This is a really yummy dessert for cold nights or holidays. I did make some changes. I didn't have enough butter so I used 1 stick of butter and 1 of margarine. I also cut the sugar down to 3/4 cups and used smaller apples. I think the butter/margarine and sugar changes cut down on the richness of the original recipe. I was surprised how simple this was to make. It tasted like apple pie!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
These were good, not great. When I made these they were heavy, not light and fluffy. Also the serving size seemed off. I only got six servings instead of eight. I did add a tsp. of vanilla as other reviews suggested. I mixed the wet ingrediants seperate from the dry ones. However, when I got ready to pour the batter on the griddle, it was too thick. I had to add more milk to thin it out. Next time I will cut down on the salt and baking powder. The taste was very good and I will continue to try to modify this until I get the best results.
