Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2014
This was so delicious & moist, we absolutely loved this recipe. The only change I made was to mash the bananas instead of slice them. I also added a few extra walnuts & softened the butter instead of melting. Absolutely a keeper, thanks for sharing!

Deep Fried Jalapeno Slices

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
These were awesome!! Hubby was eating them faster than I could make them. Word to the weak - they are spicy! We served with salsa con queso dip. I used the leftover batter & fried up some green beans & broccoli. Delicious!! Because we cooked them after the jalapenos, the oil picked up a spicy flavor that carried over to the other veggies. Not sure why other reviewers were saying this was too runny of a batter, I thought it was perfect as is.

Chicken Flautas

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
Made a few modifications for our preferences. To cook the chicken, we made a dry rub of salt, pepper, cumin, cayenne & chili powder. Sauteed it & shredded. Used homemade salsa instead of jarred picante. We also added 3 diced fresh jalapenos to the mix. We used shredded taco blend cheese & put in only about 6 ounces total to the mix & used about 2 more ounces on top of the wrapped flautas. We tried rolling as directed, but found it difficult. So we switched to stuffing & rolling the shells before we fried them. That seemed to work much better. We had a few different choices for topings: sour cream, guacamole & our favorite was hot pepper jelly (also from this website). Overall, it's a great starter recipe, great to build on & make your own.

EAGLE BRAND® Quick Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
The whole family loved this, and the teenager ate up all the leftovers quickly. I tried to lighten it up a little by using fat free condensed milk & sugar free pudding mix. You wouldn't even noticed the reduced calories, it was delicious!

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
Really quick & easy. Hubby loved them, and my cooking club too. Update: Since the original lemon recipe turned out so well, I've experimented with a couple others as well. Chocolate cake mix with mint extract is also devine, and I recently tried strawberry cake mix with strawberry extract. Delicious. This is a wonderfully easy, versitile recipe.

So yummy! This was my first experience with chicken cordon bleu, and I will definitely put this on my repeat list. I served it with some fresh asparagus, topped with some of the extra sauce. Delicious!

Classic Cherries Jubilee

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
Delicious & easy to make. I didn't have any cherry extract on hand, so I followed a previous reviewer's advice & substituted with almond extract. Unfortunately we lit the pan outside, and couldn't see the blue flame because it was too bright out. We could hear the flame interestingly enough & feel the heat, so we knew it worked. My advice would be to light the flame in a darker setting so you can enjoy the display. We'll do this one again.

No-Cream Pasta Primavera

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
Mom wanted pasta primavera for her birthday dinner. I never made it before, so I found this recipe. Made exactly as directed, except added broccoli, and omitted the vinegar. Everyone loved it, and every last bite was devoured, no leftovers.

Hot Pepper Jelly

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
This was delicious. We used it as a topping for Chicken Flautas (also from this website). I modified the pepper ratios to suit our spicier taste. I used about 3 cups of jalapenos and 1 each of red & green bell peppers. Even after this modification, it was still sweet, I think I could have upped the jalapenos even further. I used 4 tbs pectin, and that was a very thick jelly. I think next time I will reduce to 3 tbs. I also used the inversion method to set.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
I made this cake for my husband's birthday & it was a hit. He is a huge peanut butter & chocolate fan & difficult to please, but received rave reviews. I'll make this one again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
My family LOVED this recipe, and it was even better 2 days later as leftovers. The only change that I made was to replace the water with extra tomato sauce. Instead of cooking the noodles ahead of time, I just soaked them in hot tap water for about 10 min. They were still very firm when I put them in the casserole dish & they came out perfect. The lasagna held it's shape and was easy to serve. This will be a weekend staple in our rotation as it does take some time to prepare. Thanks for a great recipe.

Whipped Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2005
Great recipe, and very simple to make. After reading other reviews I substitued powdered sugar in place of the granulated sugar and it turned out fantastic. I used this frosting on a cassata cake, also from this website, and the two were a perfect compliment.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
Really good recipe! I followed directions exactly, except doubled the mushrooms. Paired it with a side of rice pilaf & fresh asparagus and it was a huge hit. Simple enough for a weeknight, and still delicious.

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
My family absolutely loved this recipe. When I sauteed the chicken, I added a couple of cloves of chopped garlic for our family's preferences. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. Thanks for sharing, it is delicious and will be a repeat recipe at my house!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
We loved this recipe, great for a cold winter evening. I am always looking for new slow cooker recipes to help with my time crunch after work. After reading previous reviews, I made the following adjustments & it came out great. No butter, used chicken stock instead of water & only 1 can of biscuits (pillsbury grands, reduced fat). I also put the chicken breasts in whole. I cooked for 10 hours on low & in the last hour shredded the chicken and added the biscuits. Delicious!

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
Huge hit at thanksgiving dinner. I doubled the recipe (except for the butter, kept that at 1/2 cup) and baked in a 9x13 pan for about an hour. Fantastic.

Cassata Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2005
This was a fantastic cake. Every year I purchase a cassata cake from a local italian bakery for my dad for father's day. This year I decided to give it a try on my own. He absolutely loved it. I did make a few substitutions based on the cassata cakes that we have enjoyed in the past. I substituted mini chocolate chips instead of the grated chocolate & I omitted the candied lemon peel. I also left off the chocolate glaze (I have never seen this on a cassata cake) and instead substituted a whipped cream frosting, also from this website. I also used a vanilla flavored light rum for the filling. My entire family loved this one, I'll definitely make it again.

Amazing Muffin Cups

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2014
This was a hit for the whole family at Easter Brunch. The only adjustments that I made were to use an entire red pepper, and 1/2 the cheese. Next time I will use paper liners in the muffin tin, it was tough to clean out without them.
