Fun Cookie Suckers

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
What a fun project with the kids on an unexpected snow day. It took a cookie or so to get the technique down (we were making the "snake" too thin) but even the mistakes have their own character. I added the additional 1/3 cup of sugar as others had suggested and we didn't have a problem with bland cookies. They are sugar cookies though, not super sweet like choco chip, etc. Will definitely make again.

Ground Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
Really good! I made this because Plan A for dinner didn't work out and I had everything on hand for this. The only change was I substituted fresh jalapeno for dried habanaro reconstituted. Insignificant change. My 8 year old wouldn't stop eating! Even my picky husband admitted that it was good.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2008
For as easy as this was to prepare, it was shockingly good. I made the recipe as written and served it with the cheddar, sour cream, and tortilla chips. I did make it with the beer and couldn't even taste it in the finished product so I'm surprised to see some of the previous posts complaining about the overwhelming beer taste. Very good soup and perfect on this rainy winter night.

Allie's Delicious Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
This was pretty good. It is definitely different than "the blue box" - to be expected from homemade. Other than burning the bottom of my pot (my fault - roux sauce got away from me), it wasn't bad. Not as flavorful as I was hoping so if I make it again, I'll increase the spices.

Caper Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
Very easy to make and tasty. I did double the sauce but it seemed to make a whole LOT of it so I'm not sure doubling was necessary. Other than doubling the sauce, I made it just as written. My only complaint is that the sauce is a little thin so next time, I'll thicken it up with cornstarch before serving. And I'll add more capers (my own personal preference).

Feta Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2008
I've made this a couple of times now. The first time, it did NOT impress me. I made it a second time, (to be honest, because I didn't realize that I had made it before) and it was really good. So good, that I have requests tonight to make it a second time in the same week. I followed the recipe just as written (other than using regular bread crumbs with Italian seasoning mixed in because it was all that I had on hand), and it was pretty tasty. SUPER EASY to make which alone, earns it high marks.

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
What a yummy recipe! I did double all of the ingredients for the sauce as others had recommended except for the crushed red pepper. Even without doubling the red pepper, it was a little hot for our taste. We had it over rice. Very easy to make and really very good.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
These are yummy. After reading some of the earlier posts, I did increase the flour to a generous 2 1/2 cups and had no problems with sticky dough. I also followed the advice of others and reduced cloves to 1/4 tsp. and used 1/2 cup butter (vs. margarine). On the first batch, I did forget to flatten slightly and my cookies did not get that nice, cracky look to them. All of the other batches did so flattening slightly must be the key. And with the changes that I made, they were nice and puffy, no flat cookies here. Thanks!!

Seared Tuna with Wasabi-Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
I was a little concerned while making thsi since there was so much liquid in the pan that had to reduce to 2T. The member that posted that it will take about 20 minutes was right. It did take a while but sure enough, it eventually got there. When all was said and done, it turned out very good. I only gave it 4 stars because, believe it or not, it will need additional wasabi. The spiciness must all cook out becauese although it was good, it didn't pop with flavor. Definitely worth making again but next time I will use more wasabi and will get tuna steaks that are about 1 inch thick (mine were thicker).

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
I made this for a Christmas gathering with my in-laws. I was a little nervous about what this combination of ingredients would taste like but the risk was definitely worth taking! Made recipe just as written,using fresh roasted garlic, and the entire block of cream cheese (which was 8 oz. as called for in recipe). I was getting compliments all evening. Gotta love a recipe that's easy to throw together AHEAD OF TIME and just thrown in the oven before guests arrive allowing you to do other things. Definitely a keeper.

Slow-Cooked Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
I'm not sure that I can fairly rate this recipe because I'm not sure that I made this dish. I tried to make it as written but instead of in the slow cooker, made it on the stove. As I was putting the ingredients together, I was short of chili powder so used what I had (only 1T) and threw in some cayenne and red pepper to make up the rest. Also, I didn't have any kidney beans so I used black beans. I have to say that it was still pretty darn good. In my opinion, a good recipe can take a little tweaking and substitutions and still come out. This recipe definitely did that. Served it with the shredded cheddar and sour cream. Everyone ate up!!

Ground Turkey Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
Not impressed. I broke the cardinal rule of reading the reviews before making it so I am reviewing the recipe as it is written. Yucky. There's my review. It seems that almost every single reviewer had to tweak the recipe so maybe it's okay with the changes but as written, not so wonderful. This one won't be hitting my regular rotation.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
I have to say that I was a little skeptical of how this recipe sounded (and looked while cooking) but I put my faith in 822 of my closest friends and they sure were right! This really is good. I followed the recipe just as written with the exception of pre-cooking the veggies (not sure it really needed it though), omitting the salt (the chicken boullion has plenty), and added a can of corn (yum). We also topped it with shredded cheddar. It was very good but next time I may cut back just a bit on the pepper - it wasn't overwhelming at 1t but for our taste, it kind of teetered on the edge of being too peppery. My husband and I, as well as our 8, 6, and 4 year olds thought it was definitely a keeper.

Wasabi Mayo Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
The hardest thing about this recipe was finding the Wasabi Powder in the grocery store (it was not in the spice isle, as I had originally thought - it was with the Mexican/Chinese stuff). This was an extremely easy recipe to throw together in mere minutes. And surprisingly good considering how little prep time it required. All family members, including 3 kids under 8, all enjoyed this recipe. Will definitely make it again.

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
You mean tomato soup comes any other way than out of a red and white can? Much tastier - and I'm sure healthier, version of good ol' tomato soup. It was very good and just perfect for dipping our grilled cheeses into. The only change that I will make in the future is to try to reduce the salt. I didn't add very much and it did seem a bit sodium-y. Easy fix with reduced sodium tomato juice next time. All in all, very good.

Awesome Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
I'm apparently not a "think out of the box" kind of person because it never dawned on me to try making grilled cheese anyway but stovetop. What a nice convenient way to make a bunch of them at once. They do get crispy around the edges (my kids' only complaint) but definately worth making this way again.

Pumpkin Fluff Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2007
I'm not a big fan of pumpkin pie so I'm rating this recipe based on other's comments and actions. Everyone seemed to like and did rave about it but I only gave it 4 stars because of the amount left. I did serve it in a Saran Wrap lined pumpkin and got big kudos for that. Taking others' advice, I halved the Cool Whip but, other than that, made it just as written.

Cheeseburger and Fries Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2007
I was VERY disappointed in this recipe. I usually agree with the majority but not this time. I stayed pretty close to the recipe, the only change being to increase the seasoning. Evenso, I found this to be a HUGE waste of, otherwise, good ingredients that should've been used elsewhere. It was bland and an odd assortment of tastes. No one in my family of 5 liked it. I may actually pick the fries out tomorrow and pitch them in an attempt to use 2 pounds of ground beef in a better recipe. YUCK!!!

Golden Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
I was torn on what I should rate this recipe. I, personally, was not overly impressed. I made it as written with minor additions/changes. I added carrots, used 1/2 and 1/2, and changed the cheese to cheddar. I thought it was a bit bland and had to doctor it up considerably with additional chicken bouillion, extra salt and pepper, and a last minute addition of onion powder. I rated it a 4 because my husband and 8 year old loved it. My 6 and 4 year olds were indifferent (no reflection on the recipe or the cook). It was definately comfort food that would suit on a cold winter's night.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
I've made these twice now and boy are they yummy. I made it just as written but do agree with some previous posters that if you prefer thicker cookies (like they are pictured), add a bit more flour. I will add the extra flour in the future (forgot to do it this time) but even flat, they will still be gone within a couple of days.
