Absolute Mexican Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2003
I don't think I need to try another cornbread recipe after this one. It was the BEST. Didn't last long at all. I followed it religiously and didn't cut back on the butter or sugar but I may next time becuase of the guilt factor. Also so I can eat it more often without the extra fat and sugar. It was sinfully delicious and goes great with the Chicken Tortilla Soup I here. You can look up my review for that one as well. Enjoy!!

Chicken Tortilla Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2003
This recipe was awesome. My mom is a picky eater and she had already eaten but she ate a whole bowl and loved it. I agree with other reviews that it was more like a chili or stew rather than soup. I used only broth, not condensed as the recipe called for. Also, I did use the hominy and it gave it a true tortilla soup taste. Instead of adding the cooked chicken, I put in the chicken to cook in the soup then I took it out, shredded it and added it back in. Last thing I did differently is I added corn tortilla chips into the soup and not just as a garnish. I added this toward the end before serving. This soup is awesome and especially tasty the next day!!

Easy Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2003
SUPER EASY and QUICK. It didn't last at all. Awesome taste but I had a hard time finding key lime juice. I ended up using lime juice instead. I wish it had a more green color, maybe add green food coloring next time. Can I use any key lime juice or the concentrated kind?

Easy Yummy Chinese Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 10, 2003
It was okay. I would have preferred a sweeter dressing as well. The dressing was just okay, on the bland side. I added canned mandarins to wake up the flavor along with some chow mein noodles to give it a crunch. Was pretty good but I've tried other chinese salads that had more of an oriental flavor.

Almond Carrots

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2003
I didn't care for this too much. It seemed like it would be tasty because I love carrots and almonds but the almond extract was too bold. It may have been because I used imitation almond extract instead of pure. The onions and almond extract is a poor combination. I didn't much taste the oregano in this recipe and if I had left it out, it probably would have tasted the same. I won't be making this again.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2003
This was AWESOME, loved it. I used skim milk instead of water for a creamier texture and it probably didn't need to. The only bad thing is this is a very fattening recipe so use half the cream cheese or use low fat cream cheese. Non fat cream cheese, I just think tastes nasty but haven't tried it on this recipe. This is definitely a "comfort" food.

Grandmother's Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2003
These were really really good. The batter was kind of dry though, was it supposed to be? It would fall apart when I tried to form a ball but the turned out great anyway.

Dawn's Candied Walnuts

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2003
These were awesome. They are very addicting though you can eat the whole thing and not even know it. I used some to toss in a spinach salad and it was wonderful.

Rocky Road Fudge Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2002
These were a hit at my Thanksgiving get together. It was all gone before the evening was over, not enough for seconds so there were a lot of disappointed folks. They made me promise to share the recipe!!! I would definitely make this again. It was so easy.

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2002
I rarely give anything a five star but overall this was fabulous. It was so hearty and delicious. I let my boyfriend have some and he loved it and asked to take some left overs with him. (which he rarely does) This one is a keeper. I love cilantro so the cilantro cream sauce was awesome. I will make this again. For a complete meal goes excellent with Spanish Flan for dessert on this Web site.

Curried Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2002
This was really really good. It's a perfect blend of ethnic spices that warms the stomach on a cold afternoon. I think it would be better if it had a creamier, thicker texture as it was on the brothy side. I cooked white rice and put it in after the soup was ready and again, the taste is great. I will make this again.

Curry Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2002
FABULOUS.. I can't believe I made something so great tasting and easy to prepare. I used chicken broth instead of vegetable and I used heavy whipping cream instead of half and half. The way to give it a kick in flavor is either to add more curry or just more salt. I also put in a little more sugar and it really tasted fantastic and I will definitely make this again....it's an awesome "comfort" food on a cold fall afternoon.

Fruit Pizza with White Chocolate

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2002
This was ABSOLUTELY AWESOME. I highly recommend to use fresh fruit, not canned. I bought the pinneapple already cut in it's own juice and though it may be a bit more expensive, it's definitley worth it. Also, I used Ghiradelli white chocolate chips and it was wonderful. The only problem I had was with the glaze it wasn't as thick as I thought it could have been so I only used a little bit because I didn't want the crust to be soggy. I would definitely use this one again.

Pad Thai

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2002
Although I enjoyed preparing this recipe I really think it lacked some flavor. Something is missing. It did say to add spices, but which ones?? The red pepper flakes made it spicey but something is missing. I'll try another recipe.

Chicken Manicotti Alfredo

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2002
This was easy to make and it was very delicious. I think it needed some more flavoring, I was afraid to use the whole amount of salt due to other reviews but it could have used a little more flavor. Left overs were the best.

Easy Guacamole

Reviewed: May 6, 2002
This was really really good. It didn't last at all even though I doubled the recipe. We were all full and could barely eat dinner. I added cilantro and hot peppers to give it a little twist and got a lot of compliments. I will definitely use this recipe again. Thanks for submitting.

Margarita Cake

Reviewed: May 6, 2002
I made it for a Cinco de Mayo party and most people liked it but it turned out too lemony. I used the lemon cake mix. We couldn't really taste the tequila in this recipe. I would probably use more tequila next time. It really just tasted like a lemon cake. The glaze was pretty good and overall the cake turned out very moist even the next day. It was okay but great.

Rose Petal Pound Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2002
Excellent. I loved it. Great new taste. Very nice with tea. I would use a little more rose water because I think the taste was very subtle and I love the flavor combination with almond extract. Also the pink color was very light I may use a few more drops next time to really bring out the color. It's easy and very delicious and did not last long. I will certainly make this again.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2002
This was great!! I have gotten great compliments on this recipe. I have made it twice and the second time I didn't have enough white sugar so I subsituted for light brown sugar and it still turned out great. I will make this again.

Pepperoni Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2002
This was very good. I could eat the whole loaf by myself if I wanted to. It was tricky actaully rolling the dough because the cheese would spill out to the sides but I will definitely make this again.
