Creamy Strawberry Crepes

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2014
I just made these for my husband today, it is his birthday, and we loved them! Not a single change and truly tasty. If you prepped the fruit and filling the night before (assuming the filling will hold up overnight) it would actually be a quick breakfast for any day. We will definitely be trying this again.

Cumin Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2013
What a shocker! These were much better than we anticipated. Even the 9yo loved them. He is a HUGE burger fan and said these beat regular beef burgers-WOW! I didn't have any jalapenos so I had to use red pepper flakes but these were awesome. I oven-roasted some sweet peppers with a drizzle of EVOO and seasonings and we topped our burgers with pepper jack cheese, baby spinach, and the sweet roasted peppers. De-lish! We will definitely make these again.

Slow Cooker Carnitas from Old El Paso®

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2013
This one was a no-brainer, super-tasty, and easy as pie to make. It has gone into my weeknight dinner list...yeah for crock pots! My 9yo said "oh, oh, spicy mom!" and then munched down three tacos like there was no tomorrow. Winner!

Crunchy French Toast Sticks

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2013
These were a resounding YES in my home. Everyone loved these. I made 1 1/2 times the recipe and they were gone in about 20 minutes. My husband said he didn't want any and then kept walking by, picking one up, and just munching on it like a granola bar. All I heard him mumble as he walked away every time was "erhmmmm, thesh ish guoud"! He did it 5 times so they must be. :)

Hot Buttered Rum Batter

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2013
I had never tasted hot buttered rum before and now I wish I hadn't....because it is so awesome! This is a great recipe and makes a ton. I will put a bit more spice in it next time and I may use a couple of packets of spiced cider mix in it (recommended by a British friend) but overall it was wonderful.

Cola Pot Roast I

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2012
The sauce was really quite sweet and the meat actually turned out a bit dry which I have never has a problem with.

Bread Bowls

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2012
This would make a very good basic dinner roll recipe and we did enjoy it. As others said though, it was quite soft when trying to serve as a bread bowl. I made some thick cheddar broccoli soup so leakage wasn't an issue. These are great for 'stew' or 'chowder' styles. Anything that is actual soup though would have soaked through. You'll enjoy the taste, just plan the right soup accordingly.

Rosemary Chicken Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
This is fantastic! I could not stop eating it...so many yummy flavors in one place. it does have too much dressing, but only in regard to oil. Evoo goes a loooong way, so Ijust cut mine in half. I made sure that I made this the day before, mixed in the dressing and then let it sit overnight. This helped a lot as it allowed the couscous to soak up the flavor without it tasting too oily. Fresh herbs are an absolute must here!

Savory Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
Good texture and fairly moist. They had a strange aftertaste though. I don't know if it was the can of corn I used or something else, but the flavor was off....almost medicinal?

Homemade Banana Pudding Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
WAY TOO MUCH SUGAR!!! If you do nothing else, reduce the sugar. I made this for a family get-together of 10. Not one person ate more than a couple of bites. The pudding was a good consistancy and had good flavor but was so sweet it made my teeth ache. I might try it again, but it will be greatly altered.

Uglies

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
These are a fun 'kid-friendly' food. I made my filling a bit like taco meat instead, topped with sliced olives and cheese, and the family loved them. I am taking the recommendation of another reviewer and making sausage/egg ones for quick reheated breakfasts. Awesome idea!

Herbed Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
The WHOLE family raved about these! I don't like the bland 'biscuit' taste of many dumplings. These took care of that problem and were still super easy, as dumplings should be. The recipe makes plenty. A keeper for sure.

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
(I'm only rating the stew since I used a different recipe for the dumplings.) However, this stew was awesome! So EASY while tasty and filling to boot! I love recipes that don't require a bunch of steps for meat prep and this definately fit the bill. This has become a permenant part of my monthly meals menu. Very good! (I used the 'Herbed Dumplings' recipe fromt his site and everyone loved it. Baking mix is a tiny bit easier for dumplings, but it is an overwhelming taste. The other version took about 3 minutes longer to prepare, and were 10 times better.)

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
DEEE-lish! Very tasty and great texture. The sour cream is a great addition for flavor and moisture. i made a double batch, one with raisins and one without so all my guests for St. Pat's Day could have their preference. All but one small wedge was gone in a snap! We all loved this bread. I was even out of caraway seeds which would have made it even better but we all loved it anyway. A definate keeper!

Chili Dog Casserole II

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
If the only objective was to have the taste of shili dogs in a single pan so that it was easily portable, I would give this 3 stars. Other than that, this is tasty, but not exicting. Not worth the work either. It tasted just like chili dogs, but chili dogs only take 10 minutes max. This took prep time and required baking.

Sun-Dried Tomato Cheesecake Squares

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
SOOOOOOOO.....GOOD! I found this recipe in 2003 before I was a member, and I loved it. Fate was cruel and I lost the printed recipe in a drawer and then the recipe was out of sight and mind. I found it when cleaning in 2010 and the 'palate-memory' was so strong I LITERALLY started to salivate! Yum-E boys and girls. :)

Ooey Gooey Breakfast Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
The flavor was good on these and I liked the extra something that the butterscotch pudding option gave. The bread was as expected of any roll made from frozen bread dough. My issue with these was temperature related. As Jen said, be careful when hot as they will burn you badly if you try to eat them. The problem is that once they get cool enough to eat, the 'sticky' sauce starts to get hard and is no longer sticky or gooey. By the time they are cool enough to just grab with your fingers and eat, the caramel part is the consistency of taffy and way to hard to be enjoyable. I may try them again, but possibly add a bit of cream or milk or even more butter to 'thin-down' the caramel sauce. I won't make them again as listed though. (It took hours to soak the sauce out of the pan they were baked in.)

Christmas Morning Frittata

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
Added in a few more veggies and everyone liked this. A little heavy on the bread crumbs for our tastes, but really good in general.
