Kay's Spaghetti and Lasagna Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2003
This is the best homemade sauce I have ever had! It is also much better than anything you can get in the store, but then again, it is homemade. I left out the green pepper, because I didnt have any on hand, and used only diced tomatoes, because once again, that was all I had. I also left out the sugar all together and added a can of tomato sauce (I dont care for the taste of tomato paste), 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes and a pinch of baking soda to take out some of the acidity, which ends up turning the acid to sugar and makes it taste a bit sweeter so it doesnt need the sugar after all! Wonderfull recipe. Thanks for sharing!

Tacos in Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2003
Yummy! I tweeked the recipe just a little. I substituted a package of taco seasoning for the salt and chili powder and I used speghetti sauce instead of taco sauce. I thought that it could use about twice as much sauce as the recipe calls for. It just didnt seem like there was quite enough to go around. This is the perfect recipe for the crumbs at the bottom of the bag of chips. My bag was about half full but I tipped it to the side and got the crumbs out of the bottom so I didnt have to use any of the "good" chips.

Chili Rellenos Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2004
This recipe definately has potential. I was not impressed with the tomato sauce, I would use enchilada sauce or salsa next time. Also, I thought there was too much cheese. Wow! That is really saying something for me because I am a cheese lover and usually add more than is called for. Maybe there wasn't too much, just needed something in there with it. I think I will try a little shredded chicken in the middle of the chilies next time. I have never had chile rellenos with meat in them, but hey, sounds like it would be tasty!

Bread Bowls

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
We really enjoyed these bread bowls but I thought that the outside should be a crispy instead of soft. I brushed the outside with egg white and reduced the sugar to 1/4 c. The flavor was great and we did not have any problems with them leaking. When I took out the "guts", I pressed the remaining insides to the edge to help reinforce the bowl. I served them with broccoli cheese soup which is thicker, don't think I would serve with a broth soup for fear of leaking.

Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2004
This is deffinately NOT a keeper. I thought it was very bland and a bit dry. Needed some salt . Also, I would put the veggies in more than one layer. With all the veggies on the same layer, they fell out when I cut it because it was such a large layer.

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2003
These are SO good! I would give them 6 stars if I could!! These potatoes are the best! They arent dry like most twice baked potatoes are that I have tried (not that that is a hard one to fix) I followed the directions to a T and they turned out perfect. Oh! I did coat the skins of the potatoes with oil before I baked them to give them a bit of a crispier shell. These would also make great mashed potatoes and save a bit of time by boiling rather than baking. Thanks for the WONDERFUL recipe!

Microwave Pralines

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2002
These are pretty good. I was expecting something more like the ones in the pralines and cream ice cream, but they were still pretty good. They are really simple to make and turn out well. Next time I might use 2 cups of the pecans instead of 1 1/2 because it made quite a bit of sauce and was just a bit too sweet for me.

Sweet Tart Pastry

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
I was not overly impressed. It tasted a lot like a sugar cookie to me, and just using sugar cookie dough would be easier. No kneading. Just be sure to not over bake.

Wassail Punch

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2003
This is a pretty good punch but was a little to strong for me. Next time I will add a cup or 2 of water. Has flavor is good and has just the right amount of spice.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2002
YUCK!! This is the WORST pizza sauce I have ever tasted! I didnt even put it on my pizza it was so awful. I tasted it when it was finished and about cried because of how bad it tasted. It was way too sweet and just yucky. I had my husband taste it too see what he thought and he put it all down the sink and made me some different sauce.

Vegetable Beef Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2005
This was tasty, although I thought it could use some pasta or rice to help thicken it up a little. I used all beef broth instead of the water. Great on a cold day with some nice warm home made bread.

Pecan Fondant Logs

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2002
Yummy and VERY addicting! These are so simple to make. My little sister just could not get enough of these. I took goodie plates to my sisters and brother and she was quite disapointed when I told her that these werent on her plate. Next time I think that I will dip them in carmel before rolling in the nuts to help the nuts stick better. I also shaped them into little balls instead of logw because the logs were harder to roll in the pecans. They streched out as I rolled.

Nacho Dip II

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2005
Yummy! The family loved it. I used regular chili and just mixed it all together in a pan on the stove to warm because the kids were starving, and it turned out great.

Cranberry Salad I

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2004
This was not one we cared for. The kids refused to more than taste it. I was the only one who ate any of it but it was mainly just so it would go to waste. I only made a half batch. I really liked the marshmallows in it, but it is a salad that sould be eaten soon after preparation. Doesn't stay well in the fridge. Thanks anyway,

I didn't think this was anything special. I didnt do the ginger ale ring. Maybe thats what makes all the difference.
