Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2006
It was an o.k. recipe. I was hoping it would have been more gooey cheesy. It also was a little oily-buttery.

Down Home Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
I thought it was all right, but I wouldn't make it again. It really didn't stand out for me.

Peanut Butter Temptations II

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
Initially I put the peanut butter dough in mini muffin wrappers because in the picture that's how it looked. They ended up sticking to the paper. So for the second batch I put them straight into the muffin tin & they worked much better that way. My husband was satisfied either way. Nice twist on my usual peanut butter cookies w/ kisses...more peanutbuttery and a different look from the other cookies on my platter!

Emily's Excellent Taco Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2006
It seemed more like "Frito Pie" then "Taco Casserole." My husband liked it, but I wasn't too thrilled.

Cinnamon-Roasted Almonds

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
I really loved this little snack. I brought it to a New Years Eve get together and it was perfect to sit around and munch on while playing games. I would definitly make these again & even think about giving them out in tins for the holidays. (I did add the brown sugar as others had suggested.) 5 stars for sure!

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2007
I really liked the chicken, I would have given it 4 & 1/2 stars, but my husband thought the artichoke topping was too rich & ended up scraping off. He did eat the chicken as it was very moist under the artichokes. I did add 1/2 cup sour cream as suggested by other reviewers. So, even if my husband isn't nuts about this it's going to have to growon him because I thought it was really tasty will make this again!

Easy Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2007
I had a leftover pie shell so I decided to pour the mix into that and it was pretty good. I also substituted turkey-ham for pork ham & added green onions, salt and pepper and it turned out delicious!! I was really glad I added the green onions & spices because it really gave it nice flavor. It was very easy to whip together and I quite enjoyed it! I'm adding this to my recipe book for sure!

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2007
I thought this was pretty good. I'm so glad I read other reviews before I made it; because it dripped a lot & if I hadn't been warned ahead of time I would have had a big mess in my oven! I also knew ahead of time to make extra sauce to pour on top afterwards...it definitly needed more. My only complaint was that the sauce didn't taste too "carmely"...it was more "brown-sugary." (But it was still good.) To help it be more carmely I add corn syrup and that seems to do the trick!

Three-Cheese Spaghetti Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2007
What a nice change from boring old spagetti! I don't think that my husband thought that it had enough sauce though. But I liked it more cheesy & less saucy personally. I'd actually give it 3 & 1/2 stars, but they don't give you the half star option.

Black Bottom Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
What an ordeal! The first time that I made these I started out with 6, and didn't care for the taste of the cake. So i decided to re-make them with a box cake mix thinking they would taste better this time. Unfortunately, instead of mixing up a cake mix I mixed up a brownie mix. Oops! So, on the third try everything finally went well but they just weren't as good as I had expected. My friend once made something like these that were delicious and I've been searching for the recipe ever since, but I still haven't found it & it certainly isn't this. I've come to the conclusion that this recipe is cursed!! BEWARE!!

Slow-Cooked Tamale Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2007
This was pretty tasty, but a little spicy for my taste. I would give 3 1/2 stars if there was a half star.

Rosemary Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
I thought his turned out pretty good. Although, I didn't have any fresh rosemary on hand so I had to substitute it with dry. I bet it would have been better with fresh. I also added about 2/3 cup parmesean to the sauce portion so that the dish would be cheesier as we LOVE cheese. It smelled super good while in the oven too!!!!

Triple Threat Fruit Smoothie

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
Great consistency, I liked the seedy gritty texture from the berries. It was really yummy! I changed the ingredients up a bit by adding banana instead of kiwi and adding blackberries & respberies as well. But will keep trying different combo's. Very good! A new breakfast must have.

Zucchini Casserole I

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
This recipe was pleasatly surprising! After I mixed up the ingredients & poured it into a casserole dish, it wasn't looking too appetizing & I was having second thoughts. But after tasting it, I am now officially adding this meal to my cookbook. I did however add sausage to make this more of a "maindish" and thankfully I did, because my husband also agreed that this was a good dish! I think next time I prepare this I might add some parmesean cheese to the stuffing mixture. Also, the prepping time was more like a half hour for me. I would rate this 4 & 1/2 stars. (if a 1/2 star was an option.)

Pesto Cheesy Chicken Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2007
This was pretty good, but if I make it again I would definitely add some pine nuts to the pesto for some added crunch. Also, I didn't have mozarella on hand so I used Swiss, but I would be sure to stick to mozarella next time because the Swiss didn't have as much substance and seemed to be less flavorful.

Chicken and Potato Parcels

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
I made this recipe as suggested by others, by cutting the potatoes smaller & even precooking them a bit & they were STILL undercooked. The chicken was dry. And the bbq sauce didn't taste good with any of the veggies except the celery. No one in my family liked this dinner, including myself. I won't be making this one again! Sorry!

Pumpkin Cheesecake II

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
I can't think of any complaints with this recipe. The crust was especially good! I made it exactaly as the recipe called for only omitting the lemon juice & 1 spice that I didn't have. I was actually a little surprised that it came out so well because I live in a high altitude climate, so sometimes baking can be qite challenging...but it came out PERFECT...no cracks whatsoever!

Quick and Easy Mexican Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
I was feeling very lazy, so I substituted the garlic, salt & pepper with taco seasoning & it still turned out pretty good. It was also very easy to prepare & I had all of the ingredients on hand!

Grandpa's Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2007
These came out o.k. but my problem was that the balls didn't get evenly enough coated with the glaze. Someone suggested to use 5 bags of popcorn & that was too much. I'd start with 3 bags & add 4 if it needs more. Also, the balls set up so fast that I would highly recommend having another person helping shape balls because the time before set-up is so limited. I took another persons suggestion & shaped them in the sink which worked great. I also took another persons suggestion & made jack-o-lanterns out of them by adding orange food coloring, tying them with green pipecleaners, an drawing faces on the wrappers. They were cute, but a little tough to draw faces because of the bumpiness. Finally, i didn't have a candy thermometer, so I used ANOTHER persons suggestion & used the ice water method to test the glaze and that worked greaT!!!!
