Best Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2002
This is by far the best tuna casserole I've had, and as easy as the classic. I often substitute canned salmon for tuna, or use canned asparagus as the main veggie. YUM!

Cake Mix Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2003
Awesome and easy! I'm a fairly good cook but baking has proven to be more of a challenge to me than I'd expected. These are idiot proof! I added an extra egg since it seemed dry and I've read that that'd be good to add an egg for fluff and/or chewieness, and I used 1 1/3 cups white chocolate chips and 1/4 cup chopped amlonds. Awesome! I did not make the mistake of overbaking as I usually do, and removed at exactly 10 minutes. I will sooooooooooooooooo make these again! Thanks!!

Kidney Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2005
Out of this world! I JUST made this - it hasn't even chilled yet and I can't keep my fork out of it. I couldn't decide between bean salad or corn salad, so I made this and added a 15oz can of drained sweet corn (I tripled the original recipie first - I had a 52oz can of kidney beans). Also subbed green onion for regular (had 'em), and chopped uo a dill pickle instead of sweet relish. I'm a goof about altering recipies (not always with good results), but this one surely doesn't need goofing with. Thank you sooooooo much for sharing this!! My new favorite salad!

Morelos Salsa Verde

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2006
Update - still make this a couple of times a month and know it will be a hit at my SuperBowl party - thanks again for this true keeper! ... Excellent and authentic! I added a bit of cilantro and a small onion (humoring the backseat cook bf: "salsa w/o onion?!"), and it looked as good as it tasted. Next time I may use serranos, etc. to add some heat, depending on the company. Thanks very much for sharing!

Jalapeno Cheese Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
Outrageously good! I cut the recipe in half but still added 1/2 cup (heaping) minced jalapenos (seeds in), and used some cubed cheese as well. Made large rolls and YUM...I work at a Tex-Mex joint and my co-workers loved it too! Quite a bit of heat but easily mellowed by seeding/cutting back on peppers. Thanks much for sharing this!

Easy Mashed Potato and Roasted Vegetable Enchiladas

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2004
This is awesome! I've had potato enchiladas at Mexican restaurants but was always afraid to try them at home. I used less veggies and mashed potatoes than called for, omitted carrot (had none), added onion and green pepper (roasted). Also added cumin to veggies before roasting (I mess with every recipe I get my hands on - It's nothing personal). Hubby loved it, as well. VERY good with refried beans, sour cream & Chi Chi's salsa (my fave). THANK YOU for sharing this!!

Cold Crawfish Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2004
YUM! This turned out great. I suppose you could chop or shred the tails for a less lumpy consistency, but I personally LOVE a big chunk of crawdaddy on my cracker. This is a keeper...Thanks for sharing!

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2002
I personally don't like olives, but these are a HUGE hit at every party I bring them to. A neighbor's mom even brought one home for a friend who loves penguins! Well worth the time involved. I add taco seasoning or italian dressing seasoning to the cream cheese for flavor or for a theme party. These are great and I really appreciate the recipe!!!!!!!

Spaghetti Squash Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
I made it as written; it was cheesey and good but missing something. I put the leftovers in a small dip crock pot and added green onions, ground black pepper and worcestershire. Better. I think this is way worth making for such a creative use of spaghetti squash, just needs a little tweaking. I will make this again and keep experimenting... :)

Smoky Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
These are very good; very moist even without sour cream and butter, which taste great but add way too much fat. I was out of liquid smoke (yikes! - a staple after being a veg for years) so I subbed a dry mesquite seasoning. I've never thought of adding salsa to corn bread (although I've added almost everything else)! This is my new healthier fave - thanks!

Broccoli and Stuffing Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2004
This was super good, and the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was the moisture content (or lack thereof). I added 1/2 cup sour cream at the start in addition to the mayo, and had to add approx. 1/4 cup half and half and 1/2 cup milk while baking (I stirred it up to distribute the moisture). Otherwise, the taste is awesome and it went great with Christmas dinner. I'll be making this on a regular basis. Thanks for sharing!

Baked Seafood Au Gratin

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2004
Hmmmm...lemme think....um...AWESOME! This was outstanding. I subbed tilapia for flounder (had on hand) and crawfish tails for the crab (just love crawfish), a shredded cheese blend for the sharp cheddar, and 1.5 cups heavy cream for the milk, since other reviewers mentioned that it was runny. This reminded me of something you'd order at Red Lobster, maybe over pasta. I served with garlic breadsticks, and even the hubby, who hates anything even remotely "fishy", loved it. Added more onion and pepper to the left overs, rolled into tortillas and made enchiladas the next night. Thanks SO much for sharing this!

Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
Unreal - I had my reservations but this is awesome (and it hasn't even chilled yet)! I halved the salt & pepper based on other reviews, and left out the lemon juice because I generally hate it. I will try this dressing on other veggie salads - Those who reviewed suggesting you carry the recipe with you when serving it were right on - VERY good!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2006
Made with white chocolate chips (doubled) - YUM! Subbed applesauce for 1/2 the oil and you'd never know it. Great recipe to satisfy my October first-freeze-of-the-year-night craving! My house smells awesome - thanks for sharing!

Mexican Corn

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2006
This rocks - I only had 4 jalepenos at home so I added a small truckload of cayenne pepper. Excellent, and good added to noodles the next day for a tuna-mex casserole. Trying with jalep's and poblanos tonight (jalep's don't hang around long enough in this house, even from the garden). I've never had anything like this at a Mexican joint or in Mexico, but the taste is definetely authentic. Thanks much for sharing!

Cheesy Sweet and Savory Spuds

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2004
YUM! I made these a few hours in advance and heated at 350 for about 45 minutes prior to serving. They were excellent! I mixed in the cheese instead of topping it. I'm not a huge fan of adding sweetness to anything that's not a desert (or egg salad), but these were great, and everyone at Christmas dinner loved them! Thanks!

Awesome - my first bread pudding and first attempt at at water bath - awesome! Added 1 extra banana and 1 additional egg and used hot dog buns (after some research). Out-freaking-standing! This will become a holiday recipe and I thank you much for sharing it : )
