Pecan Pie IV

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
Super easy and super yummy! It cooked much faster than 55mins in my old gas oven. First time I made this it way overdone, but the taste was still spot on. Second time I made this I only cooked for 30-40mins and it was much yummier. I used a store bought crust and it was still delicious! I will definitely continue to use this super easy recipe.

Shortbread Pie Crust

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
Made this crust for a dutch apple pie and it turned out delicious! Was super simply to throw together at the last minute and imo taste way better than regular pie crust. As another user mentioned, the crust will bubble a bit if you don't use pie weights.

Green Bean Casserole I

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
It's green bean casserole, how difficult can it be? I used this recipe as a ratio guide. I always add garlic and onion powder, salt and pepper to the green beans and mushroom soup. I saw a suggestion to use sour cream instead of milk and I will definitely have to try that.

Three-Cheese Spaghetti Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
The sauce is really what makes this recipe. I've made this numerous times (very messy to make btw), and I find that the homemade sauce I usually make with hamburger and sausage makes this recipe 5*. If the sauce is sub-par the dish will be sub-par. That probably can go without saying, but I would recommend not skimping on the sauce for this. I do remember that I had to use more sauce than the recipe called for and I always add more cheese. I normally whip this up as a last minute dish if I've got leftover homemade spaghetti sauce in the freezer.

Fusion Chili

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
I've made this chili about 4 times now in the past year. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! The first 2 times I made it exactly as the recipe called for and it was a bit too soupy for my liking and didn't really have the LOOK of chili, but still was delicious. The last 2 times I've made it, I've used ground pork sausage instead of the Italian sausage and used about 2 medium sized cans of tomato sauce along with the diced tomatoes the recipe called for; it was absolutely delicious and definitely looked and tasted more like chili. I normally serve it with sour cream and corn bread. This is definitely my "go to" chili recipe.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
Very yummy, but I had to add to the recipe to make it yummy. I seasoned the pork with seasoning salt, garlic and onion powder, cumin and pepper. I cut up 1 large onion and placed it at the bottom of my crock pot, putting the pork on top. I don't think it would've been as yummy without the added flavors of the onion and seasoning.

Seafood Fettuccine

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
This was just okay for us. We weren't too keen on the fish flavor with the creamy sauce. Was a bit too rich. I don't think I'll make this again, but it wasn't horrible. Just not something my family liked.

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
Just made this recipe this afternoon. My bf loved it! I think the following changes may have helped, because without them I could see how some reviewers would call this recipe too bland. Chicken Prep: Melted 1/4 cup of butter in a stock pot, added onions and garlic, let them cook until nearly translucent. Added 4 whole breast of chicken seasoned with salt, pepper, and onion powder, cooked on each side for about 2 mins per side then filled the stock pot with boiling water. Once chicken was cooked through I poured out the water and chilled the chicken in the fridge. After chilled I shredded instead of cubing the chicken. 2nd change, I added the entire cup of parmesan to the sauce and an extra 1/2 c of mozzarella. Sauce was not soupy at all. 3rd change; I took an 8oz pkg of softened cream cheese, whipped it, added the spinach to the cream cheese, seasoned with salt, pepper, a pinch of nutmeg. Then I added the ricotta to the cream cheese and spinach mixture. I layered per the directions and cooked for 35-37 mins. It was a huge hit! Don't know if this will be a regular on the house hold menu since there are SOOO many steps involved.

Cheesecake Brownies

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
I made this recipe with the following changes. 2 8oz pkgs of cream cheese 1 egg 2 tbl sour cream (to give it that real cheescake flavor/bite) 1/2c sugar I also added a tablespoon of vanilla to the brownie batter as well. My boyfriend loved it. I will be making this again. I think the brownie would've overwhelmed the cream cheese if I hadn't added more cream cheese, so this only gets a 4 star.

Mom's Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
Good base recipe. Made the first time exactly as recipe states. Wasn't too thrilled; the flavor was a bit too bland for my household's taste. Made again with the following changes and got a WOW from my bf: diced 1med onion and sweat in 2 tblsp olive oil. cook until translucent & add 2 tbsp minced garlic. cook for 2-3 minutes. Add 2lbs ground beef sirloin, parsley, salt and pepper and brown, drain excess. Add 15oz tomato sauce, 1 can peas, 1 can green beans, 1 can corn, mix together. Add flour and water mixture (2.5tblsp flour/4tblsp water), mix well. place into baking dish, top with colby jack or sharp cheddar cheese (I used about 1-2 cups) and then mashed taters (I did cheat and used boxed mashed potatoes that I doctored up with chives, garlic and onion powder) and cook for 20mins. take out and brush top with butter and milk and bake for 5 more minutes. Not sure if this can still be called shepherd's pie after my alterations, but we love it.

Chili Dog Casserole I

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
Made this for a Superbowl party. It was okay. Not the greatest and not a lot of flavor surprisingly. I made it with the cornbread instead of the buns and doubled the amount of hotdogs the recipe calls for. Didn't make anyone go "MMMMMM!" It was just okay. The cornbread was lacking something. I think next time I'll add chili powder and cumin in the cornbread for more flavor and maybe more mustard in the chili. We love chili dogs, so this would be a great recipe if I could just figure out how to give it more "oomph!"

Bev's Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
I'm eating this right now, not all that impressed. Good idea for a sauce, but the chicken just doesn't have much of an orange flavor. I think next time when I have more time I will make some changes like marinating in orange juice or orange juice concentrate for an hour. The only thing that saved this chicken was the addition of seasoning the chicken before pouring the sauce over it.

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
LOVE LOVE LOVE this. I followed the recipe exactly except I used more taco seasoning and a little more meat, and lots more cheese. It turned out GREAT. Wonderful flavor, filling and easy. I would recommend this to anyone. EDIT 7/30/09 - this is still a household favorite in the winter months. I normally add more tortillas now so they don't get too soggy while cooking.

Simple Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
The flavor was okay. A bit bland, but still very good. I made this for a dinner party I had. I wouldn't exactly call this recipe "simple" but it's okay. The sauce turned out pretty good...I had to add a good 1/4 cup of brown sugar because it's pretty tart without it. Next time I make it, I will probably buy thin sliced chicken breasts.

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
This is absolutely the best, easiest cheesecake recipe I've ever used! I use it all the time. It's even good to use as a base. I've substituted chocolate chips with blueberries, strawberryies and cherries and it still comes out great everytime! I recommend this recipe to everyone. Since I've been making this recipe for over a year now I've made a few changes. I add 3/4c of sugar and 2/3c of sour cream and 2 egg yolks for a denser richer cheesecake.

Chewiest Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2007
ive made them 3 times now, thinking maybe the change in weather, humidity or something would help. followed the recipe to a "t" and they still didn't turn out even close to being good. yes, they were chewy; entirely too chewy and wet. Some review said these are 5 star restaurant brownies - I would have to highly disagree. I'm giving this a 2 star instead of 1 or non because they were still edible and i like chocolate and these are very chocolatey.
