Bob Evans® Sausage Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
This is great. I make a couple of changes, but stay pretty true to it. I add a can (or two) more creamed corn and reduce the milk, and I skip the flour altogether. I use whatever light sausage is available at the store, or turkey sausage if I can get it. I also don't bother with the scallions, but that's just because the chowder smells so good that I don't want to wait the 30 seconds to cut some up. :)

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2011
This was pretty good. I used Miller Lite, because that's what I had (the husband is a fan), and I used that onion soup mix stuff, beef bouillon, and water. I was in too much of a hurry to leave for work to add anything else. I came home to see my husband drooling all over the place, waiting for dinner to be served. It was pretty salty, but that was probably my fault -- bouillon and onion soup mix are both salty. There was no slicing it because it kinda fell apart.

Avocado and Cranberry Mustard Turkey Wrap

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
This is my new favorite recipe!!! I reduced the amount of mustard and added a tiny bit of honey to make the sauce. Other than that, I just added some spinach, tomatoes and red onion. Perfect!! I'm going to start using cranberry mustard in place of mayo on sandwiches.

Cheddar Chicken Spirals

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
This was pretty good. I basically followed the recipe, but layered it like lasagna and used angel hair pasta, because that's what I had. I did it in the oven, just long enough for the cheese to melt. I added broccoli instead of mixed vegetables, and used some sharp cheddar and some mild cheddar. I thought it would be a ho-hum dinner, but the family actually loved it. My picky picky 10-year-old joined the clean plate club.

Mom's Chocolate Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
I love to cook but don't do loads of baking. Usually, I cheat and use pudding mix and do the meringue the right way. I decided that was silly, so I found this recipe. I always read the comments; the advice about why sealing the pie is important was very helpful. This worked perfectly. I followed the ingredients to the letter, working with my 10-year-old (except timing -- I kind-of eyeballed that). The custard was so thick it was already setting as I was smoothing it out in the pie crust. The meringue (with only THREE egg whites!!!) is nearly 4 inches tall in the middle. I think this pie looks like something out of a magazine. WOW!!! I will definitely use this recipe again.

Blackened Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
This was really good; my husband did it in an iron skillet on the grill. The only thing is, no one told me it would be sooooo hot!!! Maybe because he put so much rub on, I don't know, but it was barely edible for me (I'm a wimp). But we do plan to replace the cayenne and try something else next time, because the salmon was cooked to perfection, and my husband LOVED it (of course, he eats hot peppers as snacks). With changes, I think it will be a definite keeper.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread II

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2010
This is excellent. I followed the recipe for the most part, using 1/2 shortening and 1/2 butter. It has a yummy taste and texture, and I like the fact that it uses a lot of bananas.

Brownie Crackles

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
These are SO yum! After they cook, I like to re-roll them in confectioner's sugar so that they're extra pretty. I made this recipe and they were so soft and gooey. I baked them for only 8 minutes, since my oven runs hot. I'm dreaming of them again, but alas, my New Year's resolution is still strong...

Maria's Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
I agree that this does need some extra seasoning. I added lots and lots of garlic and it was still lacking something. Maybe the previous reviewer's nutmeg? Whatever it is, it needs to be in the cheese mixture. I had breasts with rib meat, and didn't want to waste that part, so I chose to pound flat. It still looked stuffed, and I was able to get all my filling in (I only made half, after reading reviews). Overall, though, this was awesome. I'll keep tweaking it and serve it again and again. BTW, I served it with roasted zucchini and onions and it looked fantastic. I took leftovers to work and my coworkers were jealous!
