The Hudsucker Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2011
As many before mentioned, I had a difficult time finding Bombolina, so I picked up Bertolli Garlic, Herb and Onion. I left out the garlic clove, completely forgot the red wine ~ was drinking it instead ~ and didn't use the pine nuts (my family is really picky). I used frozen, cooked shrimp, for ease. Turned out really great. Will definitely use this recipe again.

Baked Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
Because I had a large-ish casserole full of potatoes, I used two cans of cream soups: cream of celery and cream of mushroom. I also added half of a Velveeta brick because I was aiming for the "cheese" potatoes and cut up several breakfast ham steaks. ThEN, I added the milk, too. I think that is where I went wrong. It was WAAAAAY soupy. After an hour and uber soupy-ness mess, I ended up ladelling out much of the extra liquid, which ACTUALLY ended up being FABULOUS cheese soup. My potatoes weren't getting done, either, so I put the whole dish in the microwave and nuked it for about ten minutes, then put it back in the oven on low broil to brown the top. It took a lot longer than expected, but the flavor was phenomenal. And now I know how to make cheese soup. :) Fabulous. I know what changes to make next time, too.

Chicken Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
I used reduced sodium soups (as I try to always do). Added a few more crackers on top, and a dash of garlic powder, omitted salt. Super easy. Wow.

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
I: 1.) Sauteed fresh spinach and mushrooms in butter and a couple cloves of garlic before I put them on the bottom of the baking pan. 2.) Added a layer of cooked, thin egg noodles b/w the vegetables and the chicken 3.) Used lower sodium cream of mushroom soup and whole milk, instead of half and half. I also added some oregano and black pepper to the sauce. I thought it was excellent; my family is picky, though, and it wasn't their favorite. I thought I could sneak mushrooms and spinach into the casserole. Alas, they noticed. I would definitely recommend this to others, however.

Cheesy Ramen Noodles

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
I had nothing in my house to make as a side dish to chicken but I had plenty of noodles (ramen included!). I looked up "noodles" in Allrecipes and stumbled upon this recipe. It was really very good! I had some Velveeta that I didn't know what to do w/ in my fridge so I used that. It tasted like those packaged noodle mixes from Lipton but was WAY easier!!

Royal Icing I

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
This recipe was super easy. I used almond extract instead of the alcohol and used the frosting to decorate individual brownie bites with a ganache frosting I made (also from this site). I'll definitely use this again!

Chocolate Ganache

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
I only had a 4 oz. bar of bittersweet chocolate but I had a 1/3 bag of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips and used those and it turned out fine. It didn't dry like I would have liked and still is a little moist about 8 hours later. I used this ganache on individual brownie bites and decorated them w/ white stripes on top with a royal icing recipe. The taste is phenomenal ~ kind of like mini Hostess cupcakes and they look like they came from a bakery. I will use this recipe again because it was so tasty and easier than any frosting recipe I have ever made.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
I didn't know what to expect from this because I have never had this kind of soup before. I was almost regretting making it when I was putting it all together, but it turned out SO well. I added another chicken breast, black beans and more spice than was called for. I also wasn't sure about adding the tortilla chips but they, as long as the cheese and sour cream I put on top, really added to the flavor. Yummy!

Swiss Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
Good and easy! I used the reduced sodium soup as others had suggested and it turned out very well. Other than that, I didn't make any other changes :-).

Unbelievable Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
I'm so thrilled because this is the first roll recipe that I used that has ever worked for me! My last attempts have been terrible. These were easy and are very tasty ~ they remind me of my mother's rolls.

Egg and Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
I used this recipe on Thanksgiving when I couldn't find my usual egg and sausage bake casserole. As others suggested, I added a small amount of milk and increased my eggs to a dozen. I also added some dry mustard (one ingredient that I could remember from my recipe), dried parsley and garlic powder. I didn't particularly care for the crescent roll crust, but everyone thought it delicious...so I am in the minority.

Broccoli Salad II

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
My all-time favorite broccoli salad! I chop 1/4 of a small red onion and add that, too. Light Miracle Whip works well instead of regular mayo and I use either apple cider or white vinegar ~ whatever I have on hand :-).

Easy Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2007
Very good! I made a few changes, though: I used apple pie filling instead of apples to make it easier, cut the sugar down to 1/2 cup (thought the filling would be pretty sweet), added about 3/4 cup of rolled oats and poured 3/4 cup of margarine over the top. The top ended up chewy and crispy. I made it for a dinner party and was asked for the recipe a number of times!
