Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
All in all, it was a tasty cake considering how extremely easy it is to throw together. It also makes your whole house smell wonderful while it's cooking! Everyone really seemed to like this except for me. I guess because I am a "texture" person and I thought it was too mushy. I actually reduced the oil to 3/4 cup and I'm very glad I did! I would make it again sometime and either add more flour or cook it longer than the recipe says too.

Catfish Cakes

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
After reading reviews, I decided to bake the fish at 450 for 10 minutes. Next time I would do 15 instead because the fish was very "wet" in spite of all the draining so it was difficult to get it to stick together. I also doubled the old bay, added a splash of lemon juice and worcestershire and added 1/2 cup of bread crumbs with two cups of crushed ritz crackers. My DH and I really enjoyed this recipe. We cooked it in 3/4 cup of oil on the stovetop and got 12 medium size cakes! Yummy

Cheesecake Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2008
Everybody thought these were amazing! I did take some suggestions from others to make them the night before and refrigerate till serving time. I also added some vanilla extract to the cream cheese mixture and swirled it all together with a butter knife. Very good!

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2008
I almost rated this a three and I've never done that before. This recipe should taste so much better based on the amount of fat and calories in it. I used 1/8 cup of butter and I'm glad I did because butter was floating on top when I took it out of the oven (gross) I also cut up the chicken to reduce cooking time to 35 minutes and added sauteed mushrooms and chopped broccoli. At first, I was so excited to try this recipe, but would probably never make it again. I can think of much better ways to use cream cheese and wine!

Spinach Dip with Water Chestnuts

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
This dip is always a hit! Only 12 ounces of sour cream is needed. Make sure to chill at least four hours before serving for the flavors to combine. I always make it the night before because it's so convenient!!

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
This cake was great & beautiful too! It's quite simple to make in spite of the elegance. I took others advice and doubled the coffee and kahlua and I'm glad I did! I had never made anything with whipping cream but the icing turned out fluffy and fabulous!! I refrigerated the glass bowl as someone else had mentioned and I think that helped it come out nice and fluffy!!

Easy and Elegant Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
I absolutely Love this recipe! It's so nice to find a recipe for tenderloin that doesn't have to be marinated for 8 hours! I changed just one tiny thing, only about 1/4 cup of olive oil mixed with dijon mustard, italian dressing and onion powder. I figured why add that much fat/calories when you can get the same taste with less? It turned out fantastic & cooked perfectly in exactly the time listed. Thanks again!!

Creamed Spinach II

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
So this needed some spicing up when I tasted it although it could have been because I used canned spinach instead of frozen. I sauteed half an onion in butter with minced garlic and added that to the spinach and I also added a little whipping cream just because I had it on hand. I wouldn't buy it just for this, but figured what the heck since it was in the fridge :o) I got a few compliments on this dish at my uncle's b-day party, but not as many as I wanted! I would probably make it again in a pinch since it's so fast and easy.

Veggie Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
This lasagna was Awesome!! My DH and I ate this for three meals because we liked it so much and it made a lot! It was just as good if not better as leftovers. I actually used low fat soups (cream of mushroom & cream of chicken) and used mozarella cheese instead of the cheddar. I used all fresh vegetables in this as well (grated carrots, spinach, broccoli, mushrooms, onions and garlic) and sauteed them all together on the stovetop before adding to the lasagna. My DH suggested that next time we try adding chicken as well & I can't wait to try it that way!

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
This recipe is Great, so moist and delicious! I marinated the chicken in Lawry's garlic and herb for two hours. I also used fresh spinach instead of frozen and wrapped it in turkey bacon to cut down on the fat. I honestly think that I liked this version better than the original. Yes, I've made it before too :oP I cooked it at 350 for 40 minutes and it was perfect. So easy to make and yet so elegant!!

Scalloped Oysters I

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2008
All I can say is WOW! This was so delicious. I used exactly the amount of ritz and bread crumbs specified and only 3/4 one stick of butter instead of a whole stick and it was still plenty buttery. I also used clam juice (with a little more than the recipe called for since a few people said it was dry in their reviews) because we had steamed oysters the night before and I didn't have any oyster juice left. I also cooked it at 400 instead of 450 and it was Perfect at thirty minutes. We are thinking about adding sauteed onions next time for more texture. Try this, you won't be disappointed!!!

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
I had this years ago at an office function and fell in love! It's amazingly simple and yummy. I have to be honest and say that I've used the generic forms of biscuits which come in slightly smaller rolls so I've never had the problem with it running over the sides! I also use a bundt pan, leave out the raisins and use pecans because of personal preference. SO Good!! I took this to a housewarming party, but I was late so everyone had already eaten. I found out the next day that my friend and her mom ate the entire thing for breakfast the next morning!! LOL She actually thanked me for showing up late the night before :oP

Warm Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
My sister brought this dip for Christmas to eat while we opened presents & I ate so much of this, I hardly had room for dinner!! It's amazingly good! I probably would have never tried it had I known about the mayo so don't be scared to attempt this because it's wonderful and easy too!

Adult Watermelon for BBQ's

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
We decided to cut the watermelon into chunks and "marinate" it in the refrigerator for a couple of hours in Smirnoff Watermelon flavored vodka since my DH said that this way is pretty messy (he is the former party animal of our family! LOL) Everyone loved it although I thought the alcohol taste would be disguised a little more effectively!

Easy Mushroom Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
My sister introduced me to this & I fell in love!! It's so great and so easy too. Nothing needs to be changed unless maybe using low sodium soup since it is rather salty, but my DH loves the saltiness of this recipe (go figure) LOL

Baked Ham Sandwiches

This is SO great! I've had it before lots of times with the sweet Hawaiian rolls & never thought of making a bigger version with regular hamburger buns! It worked out perfectly, thank you!

Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
I read a lot of reviews before making this dish. I used the top round and it was a little tough so if I make it again, I will use a cheaper cut of meat since that's traditionally what you do in the crock pot. I also used a whole onion as well as half a package of fresh mushrooms instead of canned. I increased the worcestershire to a tablespoon and would probably add even more next time. I also used beef broth instead of the white wine because I didnt' have any on hand. The most important thing is to cut the sour cream in half. I couldn't imagine making it with that much since the sour cream taste was quite stong already with just 8 ounces! I too served this over buttered egg noodles. All in all, it was a pretty good and certainly easy recipe, but I might just stick with my mom's stove top method of cooking stroganoff.

White Pizza Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
WOW! Wish I could give this ten stars! I substituted 1/3 less fat cream cheese for the ricotta based on other reviewers comments and used 16 oz. of light sour cream and it was still very very rich and delicious! I also added diced turkey pepperoni and sprinkled parmesan cheese on top. I cooked it in the oven for 30 minutes, then broiled it for three minutes and kept it warm in a crockpot for as long as it lasted, but that was Not long! LOL Try this and you will not be disappointed!!

Bacon and Tomato Cups

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
Wow, these are wonderful!! I cooked the bacon in advance so they were a snap to put together. I don't have a mini muffin pan so I used a regular size pan and filled each cup to the brim! Taking others advice, I used about 1/4 cup mayo and sharp cheddar because I didn't have swiss (highly recommend this!) I probably could have gotten more than 12 regular size cups if I hadn't filled each one so full! These were gone before I knew it and I only ate half of one! Guess I will have to make them again soon :o) Update: I used one and a half packages of the "real" bacon bits instead of cooking the bacon in advance like I did last time and it tasted great too. I also bought a mini muffin pan specifically for this recipe to make them for a baby shower! I got almost 40 mini cups out of this recipe so it worked out better than the 12 regular muffin size cups. There was a lot of food and this was the only platter empty at the end of the shower. People went wild for these yet again!!
