Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
These are soooo yummy and very easy to put together! Yes you can still see the perforation in the dough but it didn't detract from the flavor at all! I spread a can of strawberry pie filling (very thin) on top of the cream cheese, and so then I omitted the cinnamon - hot dog they were tasty!

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
These were delicious. Everyone in the family was pleased. Since I was making a bigger portion I used a can each of CO Mush and CO Chix. I also added a can of diced tomatoes with chilies (along with the 4 oz can of chilies). To save time I boiled my chicken breasts earlier in the day and diced them up just before making supper. I served these along with Mexican Rice II from this site and some heated chili beans. Thank you for an excellent, affordable meal! :-)

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
This was really, really tasty. I did cook a little longer but I was using 6 pieces of fish. I also pulled the skin off first (are you supposed to? Eww...) Very elegant tasting and even the non-fish lovers in my house enjoyed it. Thanks for a nice, healthy alternative (without using the butter, of course)!

Anna's Amazing Easy Pleasy Meatballs over Buttered Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
I was just sharing this recipe with a friend and realized I never rated it! I've made this three times now and it's been wonderful all three times. I serve over regular egg noodles (skip the butter) or rice. The kids love it, and it's great to dip biscuits in the gravy. Made with about 2 - 2.5 lbs of meatballs there is plenty of gravy to sop up. Yum!

Mexican Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
This was yummy! I doubled the corn bread mix but maybe next time will stick with the one box. We love cornbread but even after 30 minutes it wasn't cooked all the way thru. I used meat, onions, rotele, a bit of leftover salsa, taco seasoning and corn all mixed together with a layer of cheese on top...then the corn bread mix with olives stirred in. Very filling and tasty! :-)

Chili Colorado

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
I really enjoyed the concept of this recipe. I started out following the instructions 100%, but as time passed and the flavors began to meld, I updated it a bit. That's not to detract anything from the original recipe, it's just catering to our personal tastes. I doubled the recipe (3 lb pork butt) - it was very easy to dice the roast into smaller chunks by throwing into the freezer for a couple hours prior. After doubling all the other ingredients I found it a bit bland so I *again* doubled the amount of spices (so 1/2 cup chili powder, etc). Then I realized it was the perfect soup/stew to clean out the veggie drawer! In went chopped carrots, my leftover lone zucchini, a couple stalks of celery. About a half hour before it was done I threw in what was left in the orzo box - probably a cup or so. I tell you what, I challenge you to find a more hearty meal than that. So while I did stray from the exact recipe a little, we found something that is sure to be a family favorite for years to come! Fantastic base recipe (the meat is to die for) that is wonderful to cater to your family's taste buds. Sorry for the long-winded review. ;)

Jackie's Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
I loved this soup! My only changes were to use a bag of fresh spinach, added 2 chopped up zucchinis and left the bell pepper out (only because I forgot to buy one). So quick and so easy. Yum!

French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
These were very tasty and were loaded with flavor. I toasted some bakery fresh hoagie rolls with swiss in the oven for a few minutes and served with the aus jus...tasty dinner!

BLT Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2008
Mmmm...this is so easy and so tasty. It's worth the extra 5 minutes and few dollars to make the buttermilk ranch from Hidden Valley (buttermilk + mayo). I cook my bacon in the oven @ 450 for about 15 minutes and cleanup is a breeze! I also like to sub out green onions for regular and add in some celery for more crunch. I literally crave this salad. Thank you so much for sharing it!

No Tomato Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
I really didn't like this at all, which makes me sad because I really wanted to! It was just way too tangy for us to eat. Maybe it would be better to us if I just used 1 jar of the chili sauce but it was too bitter. Sorry. :-(

Mandarin Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
This was quite tasty! The only changes I made was that I didn't flour the chicken first and I doubled the sauce (and used some of the mandarin orange juice). I liked the fact that the oranges broke down and blended into the sauce, it seemed to flow better. Will definitely use again as finding recipes that all 3 kids like is never easy. :)

Beef and Rice Medley

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2008
My family enjoyed this meal. I used 1.5# ground beef and doubled the rice. I used beef broth straight from the can (ended up using about 3 cans altogether). I did add quite a bit of black pepper, it just seemed to fit with the flavors. It was nice to just put a lid on it and let it do all the work. Will definitely make again!

Laura's Unbelievable Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
I really wanted to love this. After all was said and done, this was a delicious meal. However, it took some doctoring to get there. Most cooks can taste the meal half-way thru and know whether their family will like it, or if it needs changes. My changes were as follows: I browned the chicken in some olive oil until nice and brown. Stirred in the broth and about a cup of white wine for simmering. After I put the cream cheese in I realized it needed some more flavor. I stirred in a packet of Italian Dressing mix (the dry powder) and let it all simmer together. Then I stirred in the tomatoes and a 9 oz bag of FRESH spinach. Now we're talking. I want to rate this a 5* but due to all of the modifications for my family to enjoy it, I have to rate a 3*. That being said (yeah, I have a point, I'm getting there...lol) this is a great base recipe that folks can use to adapt to their liking. The idea of the poached chicken in the broth was soo tender and tasty. Just add the ingredients you know that your family loves and you won't be disappointed! :-)

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
This was VERY tasty. I left the bread crumbs off the top as I don't care for "crusts." My kids, however, didn't really care for it. Maybe it was too rich for them. In any event it was delicious.

Manicotti Italian Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
As far as ease in making this recipe is 10 stars! The flavors were very mild which is great for kids. If you're looking for a gourmet meal this may not be it but it was a big hit for all my boys which is a plus. Lots of meat! I'll definitely keep this recipe, thank you!

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2008
I doubled the recipe. While the noodles and sauce were cooking I sauteed up some thinly sliced strips of pork chops, along with some cabbage, snap peas and carrots. When it all came together it was delicious. Fresh ginger is fantastic! When we played "guess the ingredients" at supper no one got them right. I subbed red pepper flakes for the chile paste(just a few shakes) Simply delicious. :)

Candied Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
Yum! Will definitely make over and over. I halfed the chicken and kept the same amount of sauce. I also put in some crushed red pepper and a dash of cayenne which gave it a wonderful kick. Can't say enough about this recipe!

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
I wasn't sure what to expect but this was very tasty! I didn't have fresh basil so I just scooped out a few spoons of garlic pesto. The orzo plumped up perfectly and we all enjoyed it immensely! Next time I will be sure to use fresh parm though, the powder stuff isn't very good. Thanks! :-)

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
These are so good and only take like 5 minutes more than popping the cheap dough out of a can (which is fine, but they do get old after a while). I used probably 1 cup of cheese and I also used milk instead of water. I too mixed my spices into the dough. Soooo tasty and so easy. Would these be good with a dash of dill? Hmm...maybe I'll try that next time. :-)

Beef Tips and Noodles

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
I *really* loved the gravy in this dish. I used 2 cans CoM, 1 envelope beefy onion mix, 1 cup water, 1/2 c red wine and 1/2 c milk. I wasn't too thrilled with the beef but will definitely make again, probably with ground beef (meatballs maybe)? Thanks for the base recipe, I'll just adjust in the future to suit our tastes a little better! **Updated: Made with meatballs and this was delicious! Thanks for the idea.**
