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.

Boudreaux's Zydeco Stomp Gumbo

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2006
Like some of the others who posted reviews, I have never made gumbo. I am thinking that this recipe is very forgiving because I am not certain that I used the correct amount of chicken broth and I didn't have the right amount of cajun seasoning so I used some Old Bay. I also added some crabmeat and oysters and extra tomatoes (diced, from a can) and it was soooo wonderful. Delicious. Perfection. This goes in the permanent file!

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2005
I didn't know what to expect from these but they were excellent! The saltines make a nice, flaky "crust." Easy, inexpensive and the kids love them! I lined a pan with foil then sprayed the foil with non-stick cooking spray as I read others had issues with sticking...and I also didn't have any dark brown sugar, so I just used light brown sugar and it was fine.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2005
Oh, wow! I have been under the impression that MY roast chicken was the best...then I tried this! I went exactly by the recipe, except I marinated it over-night. When I do this next time, I may add some chopped celery and some boullion granules to the chicken cavity along with a bit of water to make make more drippings for gravy. EXCELLENT!!!!!

Bacon and Cheddar Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2005
These are soooo good! I have never used any other recipe than my mother's, so this was living la vida loca for us. Didn't have any bacon, but had bacon pieces (for salads) and "light" Miracle Whip. Awesome!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
Didn't have butter-flavor shortening, so I just used regular Crisco. Turned out soft and yummy!

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 :-).

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.

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 :-).

Pig Pickin' Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
This. Is. So. Good. My recipe calls for 1/3 cup of water, 1/3 cup vegetable oil and three large eggs (instead of four eggs and just oil) to be mixed in with the yellow cake mix. I make it in three cake pans, and frost in between the layers and on top I sprinkle pecans. It is SO pretty and ridiculously easy.

Peanut Butter Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2005
I have been making a pie like this for about ten years...almost identical to this recipe. It is very, very rich but it is one of the best pies that I have tasted. Tastes even better after a day or two in the fridge. I am not a peanut butter fiend...I imagine that my rating would be off the chart if I was. Sinful!

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!

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.

Cinnamon Bread I

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2005
I have been making this for a couple of years now and it hasn't failed me! I love that I usually have these ingredients at home and it is easy to make. Great to make on a cold afternoon (makes the house smell yummy!) for the kids to snack on after school! Thanks!

Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2005
I have been making this recipe for six years and it is my husband's favorite! I make my own teriyaki (from "Baked Teriyaki Chicken" submitted by Marian Collins) and double the teriyaki sauce recipe. I also use generous amounts of the other ingredients to make a good amount of gravy that we use for mashed potatoes. Light ranch dressing is just as good! Great comfort food!

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2005
Excellent! I used 1/2 lb. Italian sausage and 1/2 lb. ground beef and added a minced garlic clove. I also used the chunky style tomato, garlic spaghetti sauce, and sprinkled some paprika and garlic salt on the top. I've been looking for an easy recipe like this for a long time! Will become a "regular" in our house; it was enjoyed!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2001
I love this recipe! I have not only used this sauce for the recipe indicated, but I also use it in my chicken stir-fry. I just cook up a batch of the sauce, cook the chicken and throw frozen vegetables, onions all into a large skillet and cook for about 10-15 minutes. I serve it over instant rice. It's awesome!

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!

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!

Spicy Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2005
This was EXCELLENT! I was literally the salsa by the spoonfuls...it was so good. I think I will drain the tomatoes next time (which I didn't do this time)to make it a little less watery. Also, I may use a fresh jalapeno pepper. Cilantro would have been perfect in this but I didn't have any on hand. I will definitely make it again and will share this recipe with family and friends! Thanks!
