A Good Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
Delicious! This is part of our rotation and my family loves it! It's nice to know that when I make this I won't have to hear the complaining from kids saying I don't like that! All I hear is quiet because they are eating! Thanks for the recipe!

Hearty Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
Absolutely delicious! Big hit! I made my own sauce...got the recipe from this site. Spaghetti Sauce II by Melinda Connery. I also added extra vegetables...shredded zucchini and shredded carrot. Then I added a package of frozen chopped spinach (thawed & drained, of course) to the ricotta mixture. It was awesome! I'm actually having it for lunch right now...Yum! Thanks for a great recipe for someone who had no idea how to make a good lasagna! :)

General Tsao's Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
DELICIOUS! I made it for my in laws for their anniversary and it was a huge hit! I had to make changes though because 16 peppers...NO WAY! I cut back on the sugar and cornstarch as suggested by other members. And of course, used waaaaaaaaaaay less peppers. :) I was trying to also feed my children and it was still too hot for them. I think the next time I make this I will make it more figure friendly and not deep fry the chicken. Thanks for a great recipe. I love how everyone kind of customizes it to make it their own. ;) Can't wait for lunch...leftovers!

Acapulco Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
YUM, YUM, YUM! I took parts of someone elses suggestion. :) I added salsa & water to make a sauce. I did not use as many jalapenos as suggested and cut back on the hot sauce because we like our food hot, but not that hot. And we have small children that won't eat really hot food. They did like this though! I made this with Mexican Rice III by ALANSMOM (which is DELICIOUS!!!) and it was GREAT! My kids ate it with cheese quesadillas, my husband made his into a quesadilla and I ate mine with the rice rolled up in a tortilla. I was apprehensive about all the chili powder, but it is delicious! If you are thinking twice...JUST TRY IT!!! I LOVE that it is healthy too! This will be a frequent meal in our house! Thank You Lorrie!!

Sweet and Sour Chicken I

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
Two thumbs up! We loved it! The only change I made was season the chicken before I dipped it in the batter. Will make again and again!

Skillet Pork Chops with Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!! I had to make a couple of changes because of ingredients I had in the house. I had to use chicken bouillon cubes and only used 2 based on other recommendations. I didn't have yukon gold potatoes. I used whatever I had in the house...I don't even know what they were. :) Thanks for an awesome recipe!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
I have been making these for years! For all those people who say they are terrible...you are CRAZY! You must have used a mixer...that will make them turn out like cake! Mix by hand and they should be a thicker batter. My recipe calls for slightly different measurements, but very close. These are the BEST brownies I have ever made and I don't ever buy them in a box! Try these, don't use a mixer, use good old fashioned elbow grease! It's not that difficult to mix together anyway. Enjoy!!!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
I wish we liked this because it sounded really good. The beer gave it a terrible flavor. We tolerated it for dinner but then it sat in the fridge... :( Maybe I'll try it again without the beer because I think the flavor wouldn't be as "yeasty".

Strawberry Pie II

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2008
This is AMAZING! I took the suggestion of someone else and brushed my crust with melted chocolate (let cool/harden before you add the filling) and it was delicious! It disappeared FAST. I took some to my parents and my mom said it was the BEST pie she has EVER had! This is a keeper!

Mint Tea Punch

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2007
Made this for a spa night and everyone raved over it. It was a HUGE hit! It's very refreshing. When you look at the bowl you think it's a pineapple juice/orange juice punch. But then take a drink and surprise! :) Thanks for a good recipe! I'll make again and again...especially during the summer!

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2007
This is fantastic! I made it just like the recipe called. I made it for Christmas breakfast and my family went nuts for it. I took the extra with me to my parent's house and they went crazy over it as well. Thanks for a great breakfast recipe!

Erica's Delicious Slow Cooker Beef Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2006
This was very bland. I took the suggestions of others, but it was still not good. My husband and my son went to the kitchen for a peanut butter sandwich. Will not make this again.

Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2006
Mmm Mmm Mmm! I have never made BBQ Beef before. I was looking for a recipe for my parent's 35th wedding anniversary party. I thought...what the heck. I made it the day before and just reheated it. Well let's just say...I couldn't even have licked the crock pot clean! I underestimated how much I needed, that's for sure! Thanks for such a yummy recipe!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
DELICIOUS! I didn't use as much pepper, but other than that made everything the same. I have been looking for the perfect potato soup for a long time and this is finally it! 10 stars from the family! Think I will brown the ham and add it to the soup later next time. Thanks for an awesome recipe!

Spaghetti Sauce II

DELICIOUS! Used all ingredients you recommended (except meat) and added mushrooms & green pepper. I also added salt and pepper. I thought it definitely needed that! Will make again and again!

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
Made this for Christmas Brunch today! This is absolutely DELICIOUS! HUGE hit! I made two small changes: I shredded my own potatoes in my food processor...(preservative free that way...and much tastier!) And I used a little less Swiss cheese and a little more cheddar (personal preference). I will keep this recipe and make it over and over. I also took the suggestion of cooking the bacon alone and crumbling, then adding the onion to a little bacon grease and then cooked them alone. I think maybe next time I will saute some green pepper and mushrooms with the onion and add those in. Wonderful! Thanks for this recipe!

One word...YUM! Made it JUST as it is written and it was AWESOME! Made two kinds of fudge and this one was all eaten up first! Thanks for a yummy recipe! The flour freaked me out a little bit. I thought...how odd, but it all turned out great!
