Ground Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
My stepdaughter made this with flour tortillas, which we didn't really like. So I made it with corn tortillas, and it was much better. I omitted the jalapenos and substituted a small can of green chilies. I also added a small can of sliced ripe olives (drain first) to the meat mixture. But I cannot for the life of me understand how all that meat mixture will fit into only 6 tortillas! I used nearly an entire 24-count package. I also discovered that smearing the cheese mixture onto the tortilla, then adding the meat mixture, works better - gives the meat something to cling to. Seam side down in a glass 13x9 pan works well. Just be sure to spray the pan with non-stick spray first. This recipe is a keeper; we absolutely love it!

Cucumber Salad I

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
I don't ordinarily like cucumbers, but I love this salad! I decreased the water to 1 cup to make it a little more tart. I used rather large cucumbers, so I doubled the liquid and that worked out great. I also used flavored rice vinegar, which made a BIG difference in the taste. I plan to serve this year round. It's my new favorite! I discovered you can re-use the liquid once. If you do that, add 1/3 cup more vinegar and a sprinkle of seasoned salt. Oh, and if you use SEASONED rice vinegar it's better than wonderful!

Banana Cream Pie Made Easy

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
After reading the rave reviews for this recipe, I was looking forward to a tasty treat. I was disappointed. It's just an expensive and time-consuming way to make banana pudding. I'll continue to look for a good banana cream pie recipe. This one isn't it.

Carrot Cake VIII

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
Very good! I omitted the orange in the frosting and substituted 2 tsp. vanilla extract. It worked great. One thing I would change,though. Instead of calling for "1 pound of carrots" I would just put "3 cups grated carrots" instead. I like to simplify whenever possible.

Bacon and Cheddar Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
Great recipe! I used 2 8-oz. boxes of small mushrooms instead of the ones called for, and the stuffing perfectly filled them. Just one thing wrong - they didn't last long enough! We loved 'em!

Toasted Butter Pecan Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2007
Wonderful cake! I didn't have 3 layer cake pans, so I baked it in a 13x9 pan for 45 minutes. It turned out great. You may be tempted to skip the pecan toasting process, but don't! Toasting the pecans in butter is what gives this cake its unique, irresistible flavor. The cake received rave reviews from my family and my co-workers. I will definitely keep this cake on my "favorites" list!

Whipped Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2006
I used this on a homemade lemon cake for my stepdaughter's baby shower. Everyone raved! It's definitely a keeper. I've given it to several people, and they've all had the same result - rave reviews. I'll use this one again and again.
