Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch

Reviewed: May 7, 2015
This is now my go-to recipe for tuna casserole. However, I'm only giving it 4 stars because as written it's a little bland and there is not near enough sauce. I highly recommend doubling the sauce, adding extra garlic and a pinch of cayenne pepper, and topping with crushed potato chips instead of bread crumbs. With those changes, it's fantastic! I do love this recipe as a base, and it's the best I've found so far.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2014
We've made these several times now, and they are a hit with the whole family! Wonderful flavor, even if there isn't time to let them sit and marinate. I usually make a little extra marinade so that it covers the chicken completely, and I prefer a little extra worchestershire and rosemary (fresh is a MUST!). No matter how much chicken I make, everyone gobbles it up and there are no leftovers!

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2014
This is the BEST shrimp marinade! If you are in a hurry and don't want to have to let it sit for a half hour, or bother starting up the grill, these are great broiled. I just mix the shrimp with the marinade, throw it on a foil covered cookie sheet (or broiler pan), and put it under the flame for a few minutes on each side. I like to broil it until the shrimp gets slightly blackened on the edges. My husband likes his spicy, so I add some Cajun's Choice creole seasoning or Tabasco sauce to his. Yum!

Spinach Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2014
These were really good! Took them to a get-together and had several people comment on how tasty they were and ask for the recipe. I highly recommend using cream cheese in place of some of the mayo or sour cream. I also used green onion which seems to go really well in these type of roll-up appetizers. I'll definitely be making these again. Thanks!

Banana Wake-Up Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2014
3.5 stars. Not bad. Tastes like banana bread with a twist of peanut butter cookie. Maybe not as flavorful, but I do like that it's much healthier. Since others mentioned that it's fairly bland, I added dried cranberries and some nutmeg. I also used flax seed instead of wheat germ (better for you!) I'll be curious to see if my kids like them in the morning. :)

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!
