Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2013
In the category of "actions speak louder than words" -- I made this for a post-New Year's family gathering. As everyone was standing around talking about their New Year's resolutions to lose weight, eat healthier, etc, they were gobbling this dish down. It was so good (and loved by all), even the resolution-breakers. Made just as written.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2012
I am NOT a fan of pumpkin pie so whatever possessed me to make this is beyond me. Made it just as written (except for adding cinnamon to the icing, as previously suggested). I was all prepared to think these were "okay", but, holy cow, were these good! They were moist, not overly sweet, not overly pumpkin-y (yea, for me!!). Very good cookie and a nice change from our good ol' chocolate chip.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
Made this for Thanksgiving. Bunch of desserts were there so everyone was taking little pieces so they could try them all. Kept overhearing (again and again!!) "have you tried the chocolate cake?". When folks went back for their "real" sized dessert, almost ALL went for the chico cake. It was that good!!!!!

Penne Pasta with Spinach and Bacon

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
Not sure what I did wrong but based on all of the positive reviews, it must've been me. Followed directions exactly but found it to be unappealing. Too overpoweringlly spinachy with no other noticeably flavors (not even the bacon stood out). Will not make again.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
I've made this twice now, both times in the slow cooker. REALLY REALLY GOOD!! Considering there's barely any work involved (short of peeling the apples and mixing a few ingredients), so well worth making vs. buying!!! First time, made it as written - entire family LOVED it (including 4 kids not always appreciative of my efforts). Second time, tried others' suggestions of using brown sugar instead of white and a bit of nutmeg. Still LOVED it!!! The only word of warning (and to NO FAULT of the recipe), watch the kind of apples you use. The second time I made it, I used apples that were squirting me as I was peeling them and I thought, hmmmm, I should cut back on the recommended water.....but I didn't. When it was done, I did find it was a bit more watery but it still tasted great. Just something to keep in mind.

VanVoorst Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2012
Very good. Was concerned about it being too mustardy but after reading the reviews, I, once again, put my faith in complete strangers and took a chance on it. Once again, they were right. You could definitely taste the mustard but it was in no way over-powering or distracting. It was really good. Made it just as written.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
I've made this a couple of times and each time, have stuck pretty closely to the recipe (any changes were insignificant). This was really good! Great recipe for the night it's prepared or, better yet, double it and freeze half for another night. Biggest change made was that I mixed the brown sugar/ketchup and topped the raw meatloaf with it (vs. putting it on bottom). Very good!!!!!

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2012
This was my first venture with making cole slaw. I would have to say that it was even better than restaurant slaw. DEFINITELY better than deli counter slaw!!!! Yum yum!! Made it just as written except for using mayo in place of Miracle Whip (personal preference). As posted, it does get more watery as it sits (no fault of the recipe, just the nature of cabbage). The taste just gets better and better as it sits and its super simple to drain off excess fluids if desired. Unquestionably a keeper!! ***** UPDATE: Just made it again but this time, used Broccoli Slaw (found same place as shredded cole slaw in store). did taste different than original but still very, very good. And healthier!! Either version is a winner!!!!

Tacos in Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2012
Never made (or heard of) this twost on tacos. It was easy and good though. Everyone enjoyed it. I did add black beans (which I try to do whenever I think I can get away with it and it really added a nice texture.). Would make again.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
Yummerific!! Made just as written (except for the addition of a little cinnamon in the batter because it sounded good). Didn't have enough cupcake tins so made 1 dozen muffins and 1 small loaf. No matter the shape or size, man this was good!!!!!

Sophie's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2011
This is the first time that I've ever used the words "zucchini" and "yum" in the same sentence. The only changes I made were to incorporate the previous suggestion of 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown sugar. I also made mini loaves so I could make 1 with dried cherries, 1 with mini M&Ms, and some plain. Yum on all accounts.

Goulash Supreme

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
As written, this was "okay" at best. Before serving it, I had a sneak-taste of it and went into "oh-no-dinner's-yucky-how-do-I-fix-this mode". As written, it was bland. I added more spices, cream cheese (as previously suggested), and out of desperation, added about a cup of spaghetti sauce. After the additions, it did upgrade to about 3 1/2 stars. Still don't think I'd make it again but at least tonight's dinner was salvageable.

Mexican Lasagna

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
Very easy, very good (the best combination!). Did make some insignificant changes - added refried beans on top of the bottom layer of tortillas and mixed black beans and can of Rotel (in place of tomatoes) in with meat mixture. How many stars is a meal with no complaints worth?

Home Style Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
I LOVE mac n' cheese and my husband HATES mac n' cheese. I am only picky in that I don't like it grainy and I don't like it with Velveeta. This recipe was easy to make (minimal mess!!) and it was g-o-o-d. All 4 of our kids at it and loved it (even after the disappointment that it wasn't coming out of a blue box.) The biggest shocker was that my husband raved about it all through dinner - only pausing to take seconds and thirds. Definitely a keeper!!!!!!!

The Best Bean and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
Very good! Loved by all (quite a statement that my 9-year-old-hates-all-food-son even asked for seconds). Made it just as written except for regular chicken broth from the pantry (vs. low sodium). It was a bit salty so using the low sodium would help. I did also add more beans. (If I can sneak 'em into my family - I'll do it!) It was good eats on an unexpectedly snowy winter day.

Aztec Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
This was very good and definitely worth making again but I only gave it 4 stars because, as written, it seemed a little empty. Next time, I'll follow previous reviewers suggestions of adding black beans, possibly olive, etc. Only change made was to add a can of Rotel tomatoes and green chilis (didn't have just green chilis). Pretty good as is. Really good potential.

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
Have made this twice now - once with fresh blueberries, once with frozen blueberries. Both times, the taste was GREAT with the only noticeable difference being the frozen berries' purple colored batter. The only change made was using butter in place of the shortening and using half white and brown sugar for the topping. Very yummy (not super sweet) treat!!!!

Clark's Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
This was very good and enjoyed by most of the family. Made it just as written except I pre-baked crusts 10 minutes and used cheddar and swiss (it's what I had). Like the layering but will probably not do it next time. I'm not a fan of onions and have to bury them in stuff so finding a layer of them was unappealing to me. The taste was good though.

Amazing Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
This was very good. You don't taste the mayo and everyone gobbled it up. I only gave it 4 stars because I think it would've lacked something if I didn't add the parm cheese and garlic salt to the bread crumb mix. Super easy, everyone enjoyed it -- sounds worthy of making again in my book!!

Baked Seafood Au Gratin

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2011
I'm not usually a risk-taker when it comes to cooking and have to admit that this recipe made me very nervous. It's one thing to bomb on spaghetti pie - it's another thing entirely when there are so many high-dollar ingredients. I made it just as written (didn't scale it down) and I do agree that it was bit soupy - thick, but soupy nonetheless. It was still very good though served over rice and I would definitely consider making it again (although my 11 year old said he'd rather have had grilled cheese for dinner).
