Cherry Cream Cheese Dump Cake

Reviewed: May 25, 2014
Wow! I never thought I'd be giving dump cake a 5-star review, but it was that good! I used a little less sugar and butter than the recipe called for, and I didn't miss it a bit. To make this recipe even easier, I recommend checking your grocery store for Pillsbury's Crescent Recipe Creations. It's a seamless dough sheet that just gets rolled out right into your 9x13 pan. I will definitely be making this again!

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2014
I've made this rice several times now, and it's absolutely delicious. I'm not even a rice lover, especially white rice, but there is so much flavor in this recipe that I end up eating several servings of it in one sitting. Excellent leftover too!

Chicken with Quinoa and Veggies

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2014
This wasn't the worst dish, but definitely bland and just plain odd compared to other quinoa recipes. I felt like the flavors didn't mesh well, especially the lime juice with the zuccini and feta. My taste buds were confused. I'm going back to my usual go-to quinoa recipe and trying that with chicken.

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
I've made this many times, it makes a great side dish! The only thing I changed was adding corn. You can pour frozen corn in the pan when you're heating the squash. Very good!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
Definitely the BEST!!! I took others' advice and carefully mixed everything by hand, making sure I beat the eggs in a separate bowl first. I threw in some chocolate chips, but I don't think the brownies even needed them! I also can't comment on the frosting, I didn't make it. To me, frosting just ruins brownies--a good brownie doesn't need frosting! Thanks for the recipe, Angie!!

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
Not only did this smell and look great, but the taste was outstanding. I wish I could give it at least one more star! I took the advice of other reviewers and slightly cooked the chicken first, put a little mozzarella on top, and added spinach and fresh garlic (instead of dried). But I can tell that even without the changes, it would still be fantastic! Since there was plenty of topping/sauce we served it over pasta with a side salad. Made a wonderful saturday night dinner, and the whole family like it! Thanks Lisa!! P.S. I used light mayo with no problems whatsoever!

Mom's Sweet Potato Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
This was truly delicious!! I followed the advice of other reviewers and used one less egg, and only a few tablespoons of sugar. I didn't have pecans (and don't like them much anyway) so I used oats like some suggested. It was SUPER yummy, and the sweet potatoes themselves were just as good without the topping. Lots of compliments on this one, and I'll definitely be making it again!

Peruvian Chicken Soup (Aguadito de Pollo)

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
Interesting soup, and it was actually pretty good. However, the cooking time definitely needs to be shortened when using white meat and cooking it into the soup. 40 minutes would equal very dry chicken. I chopped the potatoes smaller to cut the time down to about 25 minutes. I LOVE the heat from the serrano peppers, and the cilantro is tasty. This soup is a keeper, but with some tweaks. I think next time I'm going to try less rice and a mix of white and dark meat. Thanks!

Easiest Pot Roast Ever

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
Best pot roast I've made so far. I added some Nature's Seasoning to the veggies, then rubbed the meat with some McCormick Montreal Steak seasoning. Half way through, I gave everything a good stir and scooted the meat under some of the veggies so it could simmer in the juices. It smelled and tasted amazing!!

Mom's Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
Verrrrrrry good! I should have baked it a couple of minutes longer (my apples weren't quite soft enough) but over all it was so delicious--Even reheated the next day. This is the perfect apple crisp recipe, in my opinion.

Famous Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
These are very delicious! I took the advice of some other reviewers and used half crackers and half bread crumbs, and it works very well. You only need one or two eggs max for dipping. A keeper!

Baked Trout Fillets

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2010
This was SO delicious!! I make a sauce similar to this, but with light mayo/butter instead of sour cream. This turned out even better! I did follow suggestions and used a little miracle whip in place of part of the sour cream. It was a hit with the whole family, even the kids. We had no left-overs! (Also, we used a red trout and it was very similar to salmon.)

Creamy Corn With Cumin Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2010
Not terrible, but not great. It was impossible to strain through my colander, so I ended up with the kernels in the soup. The flavor was a tad bland for me, needed something more. I feel like I wasted alot of corn for nothing. Husband like it okay, and said at least it was something new to try.

Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
A hit! The kids like this even better than the boxed, and I love it because I KNOW what's in it. I use only 1 can of evaported milk (and in the future I'm going to try the fat free) and then extra broth + a little bit of regular milk. I use a combination of mozzerella, sharp cheddar, and mexican blend cheese. This makes for a wonderful flavor and texture!

Grilled Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
Maybe it was the type of corn we used, but it just tasted blah. No grilled flavor, more like steamed corn. The frozen sweet corn I buy at the supermarket is better than this.

Chicken Andouille Gumbo

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
I haven't had homemade gumbo in years, and have never actually made it myself. Since this recipe looked the closest to what I was looking for, I decided to give it a whirl... YUM! My husband raved over it (only he added waaaay more red pepper, likes his gumbo HOT). The only changes I made were using slightly less okra, used polish sausage (no andouille here) and I added shrimp per husband's request. The only thing I will change for next time, is maybe using just one can of tomatoes. Also, if anyone is having a hard time finding file powder, sometimes your local grocery store will have a separate display of cajun/seafood seasonings--Not necessarily by the spice section. I found the Zatarain's brand and it worked great.

Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
I made this following the suggestions by the first reviewer that's listed--roasted w/ veggies, poured the white wine over all; PLUS I wrapped the loin in bacon. SO good!!! This is a fantastic basic recipe that you can adjust and play with to suit your tastes! Plus it's so easy-- Thanks Kathleen!

Shrimp and Crab Bisque

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
The bisque that I ended up with was fantastic. This recipe as is, is just weird to me. As I was preparing it, I was thinking, When do I add water? I looked at the directions and realized that the cream and wine were the only liquids. So my soup was basically a seafood stew? I added some more water (next time I'll just use a can or two of chicken broth instead of boullion), put part of the soup in the food processor so it wasn't quite so chunky, and omitted salt. It was still too salty, so I'll use reduced sodium broth next time around. What I ended up with was fantastic, but this recipe is just not good, sorry.

Sausage Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2010
As is, I can only give this recipe 3 stars--it need doctoring. I added some flour to the sauce to thicken it (way too watery at first), and then some half & half to make a creamy sauce. Just before serving, I put some mozzerella on top. With these changes, it was wonderful! My husband loved it, and at all the leftovers the next day! Thanks for a basic recipe, but like I said, it definitely needs some things added.
