Bowties with Italian Sausage in a Cream Basil Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2013
Although I made some alterations I did not change the core of the recipe and this was a family approved recipe. I used ground hot sausage instead of sweet out of family preference. I used heavy cream because that is what I could find. Penne instead of bow ties because I did not realize I was out. I used canned tomatoes instead of fresh but when reading the directions it sounds like either fresh or canned could be used. Lastly dried basil instead of fresh because I could not find any locally. Fresh basil would have been better but it was still a tasty sauce with the dried.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallows

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
This was ok. For my personal preference not enough spice and could use more sugar. You mainly taste the sweet potato. * I reduced the recipe size to 2 servings*

Easy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
If you like your sweet potatoes sugary and cinnamon-y this is recipe for you... my daughter and I do so we liked it but more so without the marshmallows. *I did reduce the serving size to 2 to make the recipe... my boys do not like sweet potatoes and I didn't need 10 servings.*

Fresh Strawberry Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2013
Very simple and easy coffee cake to make. Produces a nice moist and dense cake. I preferred the cake cold but it is good warm as well. I omitted the coconut due to food allergy.

Casey and Leigh's Delightful Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2013
My daughter and I enjoyed this fruit dip. I used Chobani Vanilla Greek yogurt and did not have any issues with having a runny dip. The recipe also worked perfectly with reduced fat cream cheese. I skipped the food coloring.

Healthier Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2013
My kid's liked these but not enough to make a whole batch of cookies disappear in a day like usual cookie recipes. I didn't really like them...the flavor was off to me. They also spread while baking. They were a nice chewy cookie but that is about it. I ended with 3 dozen and 4 cookies using my cookie scoop. I would look into alternate ways to make a peanut butter cookie healthy such as using whole wheat flour, reducing the amount of sugar etc. in the future.

Spaghetti Squash Hash Browns

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
My daughter and I loved these. I agree with others these are not a hashbrown but more of a potato pancake. I used squash that I had already cooked. I made sure to drain any excess water. Mixed and measured patties with my 1/4 cup as written. My patties were thinner than an inch thick.They fried up quickly and were best while still hot. We ate them plain seasoned with only salt and pepper simply because I did not realize I was out of sour cream. These are a great base recipe... they are good plain but would be great with other flavor additions.

OU Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
The other reviews made me hesitant to try this as my family is use to the typical corn casseroles with sour cream and/or eggs but this turned out great. I made this as written and baked exactly 40 minutes and it came out perfect. My family could not tell I used a different recipe.

Chayote Squash With Red Peppers and Ginger

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
This was my first time trying Chayote and it was pretty good. I did not know if it needed to be peeled or not so I peeled it.I cooked it exactly as recipes stated and sprinkled extra red pepper on top before serving.

Boiled Custard I

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2013
This was ok. I wasn't a huge fan. I had issues with the texture and the smoothness, maybe from the cornstarch. The flavor was good but I doubled the vanilla. I'm going to keep looking for a perfect recipe.

'Chinese' Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2013
This recipe is comfort food that is easy and basic. I have always called this Shepard's Pie but I did get the recipe from a Canadian friend many years ago. I do use onion powder instead of onions because my kids can be picky if they see onions.

Dried Bloody Scabs (Halloween Craisin® Appetizer)

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2013
I guess it is all about how you look at something and how it could be used. These really do look like scabs when smooshed out. My kids agreed. I could see these as a Halloween cupcake topper.

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2013
This was a winner in my house! All 4 kid's loved it and had second's. I did make a minor modification. I did not add the lime juice and cilantro until after it was done cooking. I added it after I had shredded the chicken and before serving. My kid's liked this on flour tortillas with cheese and sour cream. I liked it by itself.

Jeanine's Decadent Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2013
These were not my families idea of a brownie, they like the traditional fudge, chewy brownie. The flavor was good but not the texture. They decided because of the texture these were chocolate bread. I did make some small alterations. I used half oil, half applesauce and doubled the cocoa powder. The amount of cocoa powder in this recipe is considerably less than other similar brownie recipes and did not seem right.

Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2013
Growing up in the south I have eaten a bunch of mac n cheese. I typically make a roux and have never tried the egg method was I was intrigued by this recipe. I read other reviews and was concerned about possible texture issues. I knew to temper my eggs to keep from curdling but the mac and cheese ended up with white curds. How disappointing :( I did not like this at all, I could taste the eggs and I strongly dislike cooked eggs. My older 2 boys ate it and thought it was ok. Upon further questioning I got stares of what did you sneak into my food. It is important to read the other reviews and follow suggestions such as adding extra cheese (I increased to 3 cups) and covering while baking .I think this is possibly a good base but it needs a bunch of tweaks to get the recipe just right and curd free.

Monkey Bread Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2013
I made these in foil cupcake liners based on other reviews that the sauce pools at the bottom. That was an understatement. The sauce bubbled up and was all over my cupcake pan and under the liners making a huge mess. I would probably half the sauce if I made these again since so little of it actually stayed on the monkey bread. That is my major complaint otherwise 3 out of 4 of my kids and my husband gobbled these up

Grands!® Ham and Cheese Melts

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2013
These need some tweaks. I made the recipe as written and the american cheese (kraft singles) oozed out when cut in half and the ham when left sliced whole came out with the first bite. If I made these again I would try a different cheese like cheddar, swiss or maybe munster. I also served these with dijon mustard because they were pretty blah and plain as is.

These were quick and easy and my kids and husband loved them. I made cheese pizza's because that is what my kids voted to have. You can personalize these many different ways.
