Mexican Lasagna I

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
THIS IS DELICIOUS! It doesn't cut too well because all the juices make it a little bit sloppy- but I don't mind. If you want to bake it in half an hour: Cook the beef and beans in a pan and add half a can of tomato sauce. I also add salt and then half a packet of taco seasoning for flavor instead of the seasonings. I used the thin lasagne noodles and cooked them till al dente then layer all the stuff. I added tomato and olives to each level, as well as cheese. Cooked until the top noodles were crispy and then added more cheese and olives, and tomato sauce (hunts canned traditional) to make it super juicy and moist. THUMBS UP!

Ken's Perfect Hard Boiled Egg (And I Mean Perfect)

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
Wow! This is the first time that I have made PERFECT hard boiled egg, not a single scratch or dent on the egg from tearing off the shell, it came off like butter. Here are my tips: Put it on 9 or high to boil, put the eggs in, and then reduce to a 6-7. Make sure they have small bubbles coming up. PLACE THE EGGS IN WITH A SPOON! I cracked 2 of my eggs from just letting them go. Once the process is done, refill the pot with cold water and add ice. 15 minutes later, you peel a piece of perfection. Is going to go great in my Potato Egg Salad.

Crescent Pizza Pockets

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2010
I cant decide on what to give this. Its between four and five stars. First off, I could not fold them diagonally, so I just made them into squares. I used a spicy basil tomato spagetti sauce instead (yum) and mexican cheese (mixed). Make sure you pinch together the sides and the seam in the middle ON BOTH SIDES! Dont have a cookie sheet like me? Put into a casserole dish and cook for 10 minutes on one side, and then 5-10 on the other. You get a really nice crispy crust, with warm ingredients. Its a good cheap meal for kids as well.

Pumpkin Muffins II

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
I followed the directions completely except for two things- I used canned pumpkin pie instead of a real pumpkin for ease, since its really smooth and creamy and already has sugar + seasonings. I didn't have any nutmeg, so I added brown sugar instead. This made 24 full sized muffins, not 12! They weren't as moist as I was expecting, and definetly not as sweet as I was thinking either. They were a little dry, but the spice flavor is fantastic, they're fairly easy and next time I might try using a real pumpkin.

Pasta Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2010
This is delicious! Im giving 4 stars because I had to make a couple of changes. First off, I added the tin foil on top so that it kept moisture in like others said. Then I removed the tin foil when there was 10 minutes left. I baked it for less time, and I wish I had baked it longer but thats my fault. I used cheddar instead because of the flavor and whole milk ricotta. I added salt and oregano (dried) to the ground beef. NOW- It was super hard to layer! The half a lb of noodles was NOT enough AND i used a smaller dish. Using the mixture on top of the noodles and sauce was hard to layer without messing it up, mine also did not cut like "lasagna" like others said. But I loved the flavor and the combination. A keeper for sure. ALSO if you like more meat add a pound instead of 1/2.

Japanese Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
3 stars- exactly as the recipe is. I do not like the way it turned out without the few tweaks that I used. First off- put seasonings in the flour, it adds more flavor. Make sure you don't beat the egg too much, as when I fried it the crumbs fell off. I used the butter to fry and it just became soggy and fell apart. Instead, I added butter fried it, then added oil half way up the wings and fried on both sides. I then placed in the casserole dish and added the sauce. I tripled the sauce, and tried the double broil method but it did not stick or goop. Instead I took the wings out after 10 minutes, fried them, and then heated the sauce up and used it as a dipping sauce. It was good after these changes.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
This "cheesecake" was pretty good. It did taste a lot more like a cream cheese pie then. I did what a lot of people mentioned and used pumpkin pie 'mix' which is basically filling, I did use a little less then 1/2 cup of sugar, and half of the seasonings since its already seasoned, but i wanted a little extra spice. Its really hard to blend completely smooth so mine DID end up getting clumps in it, make sure you blend it really well. I didn't get much of a "layered" affect either, but that didn't matter. It took 3 hours to solidify enough to cut. The flavor, texture, and crust was really good. Overall, 5 stars.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
These were pretty darn good. They were a little bit too sweet and we used one less banana. I added half of a single serving of cinnamon apple sauce also to make it more moist. They were pretty sticky and the topping didn't "crumb" or become crispy. It more like "melted". Besides that this was really good.

Tater Taco Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
I made something very similar to this, using this recipes concept. We used cream of mushroom soup instead of nacho cheese, as I dont like nacho cheese. We added mexican cheese mix on top near the end of the bake. Instead of corn we added tomatoes and olives to make it more like a taco casserole. It was realllly good! Just a little strong with the flavor. (from soup probably)

Easy Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
I did everything except used other types of potatoes, used milk instead of broth, and don't like ham. It had a creamy rich taste, and browned very well. My potatoes weren't soft enough, they had a funny taste, and were too strong flavored for me with half the cream cheese reccomended. Will try using broth next time...

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
Something just did not go right for me with this. I used everything according to the recipe except I do not like soy sauce so I used teriyaki sauce. I also used chicken breast which may have been the problem. The "sauce" thats supossed to be sticky on the chicken was just watery in the dish. I tried adding more sugar to thicken it, but just made it too sweet for me. I couldn't get the chicken to brown in all the water sauce. My fiance LOVED it though. He wants me to make it again. So next time I will try cooking the chicken on the stove first to remove water. I loved the flavor of it, and it went amazing with quinoa and zuchinni. Will try again, hopefully with better luck!

Pizza Snacks

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
When I was younger, my mom would make these several times a week, even for breakfast! As a kid I was EXTREMELY picky and these were my favorite. Im only missing one star because I have a suggestion which makes them 10x better. Before applying all the ingredient, stick your english muffin in the toaster/over/toaster oven on a medium browning then add the ingredients and bake again. It makes them twice as crispy, and twice as delicious!

Cheeseburger Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2010
I would personally give this a 3.5 Me and my fiance are getting out first place together and I was looking for a couple of good cheap recipes. I'm sure we'll use this one every now and then. I added 2 handfuls of colby jack cheese, and used milk instead of water. I also used a whole lb box of noodles. In the end it still turned out really creamy even though I used the same amount of sauce. It has an interesting flavor and although I despise tomato soup this was pretty good. Quick too, only takes about 15 min or less.
