Chili Rellenos Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
So good it left me shaking my head in disbelief! Based on other reviews, I doubled the mixture of eggs, flour and evaporated milk, added an extra egg, omitted the regular milk, and used enchilada sauce on top. Because my favorite chile rellenos are filled with fresh spinach and mushrooms, I sauteed some and added them in between the layers of cheese and chiles. When baked in an 8x8 pan it needed an extra 10 minutes to set before I could add the enchilada sauce, and I broiled it at the end until the cheese was bubbly. So, so good -- can't wait for leftovers!

Summer Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
I was sure I was going to love this, but it really didn't turn out as expected. The flavor was good, but the stuffing was really dry. I'd probably try it again, but next time I'll moisten the stuffing mix with broth. Too bad because it makes a lot!

Sandy's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
Cake just doesn't get any better than this, and I can't believe it's taken me so long to review this recipe. I've made it at least a dozen times now, and it is legendary among my friends, family and coworkers. It's dense without being heavy, rich without being cloying, and perfectly sweet and chocolatey. I don't change a thing, and wouldn't dream of using another icing. As other reviewers have mentioned, you really don't have to trim the tops of the layers. It bakes up just right, and is truly delicious.

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
Another rave review here... These are really delicious. As suggested, I doubled the recipe and I'm glad I did. They're nice and sweet with just a hint of saltiness to compliment the chocolate. I used slightly less chocolate chips (1 cup for the doubled recipe), and omitted the nuts. I also wasn't sure if I should grease the pan, but used some non-stick cooking spray just to be safe. They're great served warm with ice cream, but I think I like them even better on their own. Delicious!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: May 28, 2007
Yum - comfort food! The only thing I changed was to dice the onions instead of slicing them. They were excellent alongside grilled, smoked sausage and are perfect for leftovers.

Brunch Scones

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
These scones just didn't do it for me. I added blueberries and sprinkled the tops with sugar, but they just weren't sweet enough for my tastes. I might also add that they were not the dense and flaky texture I look for in a scone, but were soft and fluffy like muffin tops. I would consider using these with ham and cheese for a savory brunch item, but never again with fruit. Probably just never again.

Deep Dish Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2007
Yum! As suggested by other reviewers, I eliminated the baking powder and used only 2 eggs. I also couldn't resist stirring in a cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips (there's no such thing as too much chocolate!) I'll definitely make these again - they're just as easy as boxed, but taste even better!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2006
Every week I bake homemade cookies for my coworkers - none as popular as these! They flew off the plate in record time, and even though the cookies were huge, people were eating them two at a time! They really are as delicious and pretty as cookies from a bakery - you must try this recipe!

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2006
As delicious as these are, I doubt I'll make these again because as everyone has said before me - they're a lot of work. Not that they're hard to make, just time consuming. It pays off in the end though when you bite into a creamy peanut butter center - yum!

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2006
Yum - what great comfort food! I used a smaller roast (2.5 lbs) so it was actually done in 5 hours. As the meat rested before carving, I strained the vegetables from the juice and stirred in a slurry of cornstarch on the stovetop. After boiling a couple of minutes, I had a thick delicious gravy to pour over the meal. I highly recommend serving dinner rolls alongside to sop up the gravy. Definitely a do-over recipe in this house!

White Chocolate Macadamia Cranberry Dreams

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2006
Soft, buttery and delicious! I didn't use the macadamia nuts, so I added an extra half-cup each of cranberries and white chocolate chips. Also, I thought the cookies were too small when made with a rounded teaspoon. There just weren't enough morsels in every bite, so I made them bigger and cooked them around 14 - 15 minutes. Perfection!

Roasted Potatoes with Greens

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2006
These potatoes are phenomenal! I increased the recipe to use 2 lbs of tiny red potatoes, and used a 10 oz package of fresh baby spinach. It looked like a lot of greens, but wilted down to the perfect amount. I didn't have any rosemary, but this recipe doesn't need it. Freshly grated parmesan cheese sprinkled liberally on top is the crowning glory. This one will definitely be a staple at my dinner table from now on!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2006
I made these cookies with half chocolate chips and half peanut butter chips (hubby's request). They were soft, but the flavor and presentation was lacking. I would add salt if I made these again, but with all the great chocolate chip cookie recipes out there, I probably won't make these again.

Green Rice I

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2006
I made my rice "green" with a can of chopped green chiles instead of spinach. Also, for added flavor I boiled the rice with chopped onion and garlic, then topped the dish with cheese before baking. Before serving, I sprinkled freshly diced tomatoes sprinkled on top - that really finished it off. What a great addition to a Mexican-style meal!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2006
Incredible cookies! I used regular oats in place of the quick-cooking kind and added a teaspoon of cinnamon, but otherwise made as directed. There will definitely be a next time for these babies!

Chocolate Snaps Sugar Cookie

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2006
Yum - bite-size brownies! I stirred in 1/2 a cup of mini-chocolate chips and 1 1/2 cups of finely-chopped toasted walnuts. The first batch was rolled in powdered sugar, but the cookies were too sticky for my cookie jar. The rest of the cookies were rolled in granulated sugar which worked much better. All of the cookies, however, were delicious! And as for the eternal question - to sift the cocoa with the dry ingredients or melt with margarine as directed? I sifted it into the dry ingredients and increased the amount of butter creamed with the sugars accordingly. It worked out great and I'll definitely make these cookies again!

Almond Orange Streusel Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2006
What a great coffee cake! I was afraid it would be too sweet with all the brown sugar in the streusel and the powdered sugar glaze, but it was perfect. I didn't have an orange to zest, so I stirred in a can of drained mandarin oranges for added flavor and moisture. Finally, I sprinkled toasted almonds over the top of the glazed cake for a pretty presentation. I'd definitely make this cake again - it's a perfect addition to any brunch table!

Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2006
These were excellent! I used olive oil in place of canola, and Cajun seasoning instead of taco seasoning. Also lowered the temperature to 400F for the first 30 minutes and turned it up to 425F for the last half of baking. The key to keeping these from sticking is spraying the pan with cooking spray - I had no troubles. They were soft and crispy all at once and were fantastic paired with the Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers from this site. Definitely recommend these fries, and don't be afraid to play with the seasonings to suit your taste!

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2006
These are fantastic! I scaled down the recipe and added a splash of worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke and a healthy dose of steak seasoning. I also used oatmeal (pulverized in the food processor) in place of the bread crumbs. Will definitely make this one over and over and over again!

Quick, easy and tasty. Nothing spectacular, but good for a weeknight meal and versatile for leftovers.
