Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2014
These are so easy to make and even better--make a bunch, individually wrap in plastic wrap & these will keep in the freezer for months--that way I just need to pop out how many I need for dinner and heat up. Delightful dish!

Southwestern Vegetarian Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2014
I've made this twice and put one away in the freezer to see if it froze well. Taste is good, doesn't feel like a vegetarian meal, and the frozen casserole tasted just as good as the fresh.

Naan

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2014
These took a little effort to make (and my daughter's help didn't hurt either) but the taste is more than worth the work!

Daddy's Fried Corn and Onions

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2014
The title made this out to be a little more than it ended up being in the taste department.

Lime Cilantro Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2014
This is okay, but the cilantro & lime are both mostly lost in the rice. I can't say that I need to make this again (and I've tried it 2 times just to make sure)

Meatball Sub Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
I seriously wanted this to be as great as it sounded, but I thought, "hmm bread under sauce for 20+ minutes sound gloopey". I should have listened to my inner voice. My spaghetti sauce was delish, my homemade meatballs were delish--I should have served them BESIDE some garlic bread. I would cook & cut my garlic bread into bigger squares and serve them under the meatballs & sauce just no extra cooking step.

Penne with Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2013
I just made this for my family and it is absolutely delicious! I followed fellow reviewers' suggestions and upped the garlic to 2 tablespoons. I also added dried basil and crushed red pepper when the garlic/onions were cooking. Finally, instead of crushed tomatoes, I used a 28 oz can of whole San Marzano tomatoes--they make this dish amazing! Sauce was not too thin, sauce was not bland; sauce and dishe were super!

Omelet in a Bag

Reviewed: May 1, 2013
For the reviewer who said that Ziploc does not recommend cooking in their bags---there's a recipe from their website. I think it's fine to cook in the ziploc bags after all.

Authentic Louisiana Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2012
I've never had authentic red beans & rice--so if you want an expert opinion about that--find another review. BUT I am a pretty awesome cook (according to my 3 kids & husband anyway!) and this was a great dinner for us. The directions are easy to follow, the ingredients are accessible (meaning I didn't have to fly to Tibet for a 1/2 tsp. of anything--relatively speaking), and the taste was super. My only semi-negative comment is directed towards myself because the only andouille I could find was "meh" which meant the flavor IT imparted was also average. SO make sure you go to a real butcher and ask for their andouille & don't use middle-America-glorified-hot-dog andouille! The extra effort will be worth it.

Rachel's Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
Pretty good basic soup. And if I was looking for something tastier than canned soup, this is it. If I'm looking for a gourmet experience--this obviously isn't it. But last night's dinner of this soup & grilled cheese was delicious. So much so, we're having the same again tonight--except w/ the leftover soup.

Beer Batter Fish Made Great

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
There was nothing wrong with this recipe at all. Flavors were great, preparation was as I expected (I was hand battering fish for goodness sake, I knew it wasn't going to be box mac & cheese easy~) My only "complaint" is that I felt guilty eating this! I could just feel fat clogging my arteries & weighing me down! So, I will make these again, when I'm looking for a special treat, but I can't make these too often at all!

Swiss Steak Quick and Easy

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
This was a pretty delicious dinner. I only used 1 can of diced tomatoes (my family members are not huge tomato fans at all) and then supplemented w/ filling the now-empty can (from the tomatoes) with tomato juice & then rinsing the can w/ about 1/3 full of water & added that to the mix. Everyone loved this dinner. I'm also saving it for my niece who is newly married & on the lookout for recipes to fill out her bag of tricks with.

Western Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
This is an interesting & delicious salad option! Our HyVee had the beans so the recipe was extremely easy to pull together. I made this 2 different times & preferred the salad with Spicy Doritos--added a nice touch. This salad will be my secret weapon for potlucks from now on--especially since I hate it when there are 4 of the same kinds of dishes. Try this salad, it's worth the effort!

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
I've made this recipe many times & have (I think) perfected it. When I made it the 1st time, it was way too thick & way too dill-y. Next time I added the milk/buttermilk as suggested by reviewers, too runny. The last time I made it I added equal amounts of mayo/sour cream. Left the dill as is & doubled all the other seasonings & then added buttermilk at the end to my desired thickness. Perfection!

Maritime Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2012
Delicious way to use up some leftover fresh blueberries--really easy to make & a great taste. I love mine served warm with a little half/half but my daughers prefer vanilla ice cream.
