Milky Way® Cupcake Icing

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
I wasn't sure after reading the review if this was going to be a hit for us, but I'd bought the Milky Way candy, so I forged ahead. I frosted Martha Stewart's yellow buttermilk cupcakes. Cut back on the butter and increased the milk a bit. Didn't measure the powdered sugar, just added and mixed with a hand mixer until it was the consistency I wanted. Even after chilling in the fridge, it coats the cupcakes more like a glaze than a frosting. My husband's comment was, "It's ok, but not one of my favorites." I'll take a few to work tomorrow and see if they're more of a hit there.

Shrimp Quesadillas

Reviewed: May 12, 2012
These are very, very good! I don't like bell pepper, so I used my usual replacement in fajitas, poblano pepper. I also grated my own cheese...a blend of sharp cheddar and Jack. Did everything else as written and we LOVED them! Definitely sprinkle with fresh cilantro before you fold over the tortilla...that's mentioned in the description, but not the ingredients. Served with black beans, sour cream and salsa and it's a wonderful meal. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Jimmy's Mexican Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
This was really good. I cooked my tortillas some before I put it all together, but I didn't change any seasonings or ingredients. I noticed a LOT of people suggested using taco seasoning, but I can't stand that stuff and much prefer the simple seasonings in this recipe. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Spinach Artichoke Hummus with Roasted Red Peppers

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
I just finished making this and now it's chilling, but so far, this is wonderful. I cooked my own garbanzos from dried...used about 2 1/2 cups cooked. I am not adding the red peppers because we don't like them. This came together easily, but isn't as garlicky as I expected...that might change after it sits a while. BUT...even so, it's beautiful...such a great green color and creamy and very, very good. Will make often.

Tonkatsu / Katsu Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
It tastes like barbeque sauce...nothing special or exotic at all. Sorry, but this wasn't impressive.

Ruby Drive Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
Made these tonight on the advice of several on the RE and they didn't disappoint. I made a double batch and froze half for another time. I didn't measure the ketchup or salsa and think I might have used a bit less than the recipe states, but I definitely got all the flavor. I also used white wine vinegar instead of plain vinegar. I added some red pepper flakes to mine for a bit of added top heat. I wasn't looking for a Southwest flavor in these and fortunately, the salsa just adds the tomato and onion flavor. Thank you for a great recipe!

Ranch Dressing with Fresh Herbs

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
I wanted to love this dressing; I've been making my own and still looking for a great ranch. I knew two raw shallots would be overpowering, based on past experience. But, unfortunately, just one was too much as well...all I could taste was raw shallot. I'm not sure what to do about that, but if I figure it out, I'll finally have the homemade ranch I'm looking for.

Pumpkin Ginger Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
100% perfection. I followed the recipe to the letter...there's not a thing that needs to be changed. The zip and texture of the crystalized ginger makes this recipe for me. I frosted them with cinnamon cream cheese frosting and sprinkled on a bit of cinnamon and sugar to finish. Absolutely wonderful...I make a LOT of cupcakes and this is going into my favorites folder!

Country Sunday Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2013
Love the flavor, but the cheese on top got very hard in the hour it took to cook. I'd rather have the cheese ooey and gooey instead of hard and chewy as it turned out. I think next time I will only add the cheese at about 20 minutes left to cook. I'll definitely make this again! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Chicken Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
A little bland, but that can be easily doctored to make it more flavorful. I refuse to poach chicken...I don't care for it, so I cooked the chicken in foil in the oven, seasoned with lemon slices, lemon pepper, dill and garlic. I used reduced fat soups and fat free sour cream and omitted the butter, just adding crushed crackers on top. I also used no yolks egg noodles. This is for my mother-in-law, who is undergoing chemo, so it will be easy for her to heat up and not too spicy for her upset stomach. I think it's exactly right.

Dry Buttermilk Ranch Mix

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2010
I'm so glad I finally found buttermilk powder! I probably quadrupled the dill, because I *knew* I'd want more and it's so good. I used some to make a buffalo chicken sandwich for lunch. YUM. I mixed this up in a little Mason jar so I could just shake it up after I added the ingredients. It looked so pretty before I mixed it that I'm thinking seriously about packing it up this way and giving it as gifts. Thank you, Scotdog! Love this stuff...

Slammin' Salmon

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2010
I love salmon, but I was expecting a lot more flavor in the marinade...especially from the ginger and balsamic...I couldn't really taste them in the final product. Still, it was good and I think next time, I'll set aside some of the marinade and reduce it to make a sauce for the finished fish.

Asian Style Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
My husband, who as a rule, doesn't care for ginger, loved this. I adore ginger, but wasn't crazy about the flavor combination! It was easy and unusual, though, and I'll make it again just because my husband enjoyed it so much. Served it with roasted asparagus topped with toasted sesame seeds and jasmine rice.

Tart Lemon Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
LOVED this! Based on other reviews, I cut the sugar to a little over 1/2 a cup and that was fine. Lovely, lovely lemon flavor...I wanted to eat the zest and sugar by itself...the scent was amazing! Everyone loved this...it set up and froze nicely. We'll definitely make it again!

Peaches and Cream

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
Made this exactly as written, except that I just stirred the brown sugar into the sour cream. It was very tasty, fairly healthy (I used fat free sour cream) and best of all, VERY VERY SIMPLE! Thank you.

Tilapia Scaloppine

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
This was just ok in my book...the flavor was fine, but nothing popped and really made me want to make it again. It was easy for sure, though.

Red Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2010
Overall a good dressing that I enjoyed on my salad tonight. I made it in hopes of duplicating house dressing at a family-owned Italian restaurant in our suburban town...it was close, but not *quite* there. I used red wine vinegar instead of distilled and shallot instead of onion. Overall, this was also too sweet, which is why I only gave it four stars. Next time, I'll cut the sugar in half and go from there. I'm also going to try the same ingredients, but sub thinned tomato paste or sauce for the ketchup...it won't still be your recipe this way, but it might put me closer to the restaurant's recipe! EDIT: I have started making this with tomato sauce instead of ketchup and cutting the sugar in half and it's become my VERY favorite salad dressing! Thank you...I wish more people would give this a try.

Breakfast Quiches to Go

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
I used different fillings for these, jalapeño and sausage and no cheese, but that didn't change the reason for my low review. These were good the day I baked them, but canned crescent rolls taste so weird and wrong after they are reheated and that totally ruined these for me. Easy to make and good for immediate eating, but not for reheating.

Chicken Chimichangas with Sour Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
VERY good...only changes were to use chicken stock instead of water and bullion. I also baked instead of frying and didn't bother with toothpicks...if you wrap the tortillas carefully and well, the toothpicks aren't necessary and they are a pain to remove!! Topped these with the sauce and shredded lettuce and tomato. Great recipe.
