Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
I have never made a cheesecake, but this turned out great. I added the extra sugar (3/4 cup) and vanilla (full tsp) as other suggested, and I also baked for 50 minutes. It didn't seem set until I actually touched the middle with my finger (a tip for a cheesecake first-timer!) I also spread 1/2 of the cream cheese mix for the bottom layer versus just 1 cup... Love it, and so did our guests!

Unbaked Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
Exactly like I had as a kid. I read the reviews, and opted to add 2 tsp of vanilla, and I added the cocoa and peanut butter just before taking the mixture off of the stove to make sure it was well incorporated. They were not too gooey; they were perfect!

Linguine with Scampi

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
I didn't love it, but I technically altered the recipe and used dried dill (didn't have the parsley), and frozen shrimp. I was trying to find a recipe for the shrimp in my freezer when I came across this, but unfortunately, I just didn't like it.

Jacky's Fruit and Yogurt Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
Pretty good muffins. I used vanilla yogurt, but other than that small change, I followed the recipe exactly. The top was nice and crusty, and the inside was very moist and much fluffier than I expected. I filled the muffin cups almost completely full (because that is how much batter I had), and they still puffed up nicely.

Parmesan Asparagus

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
Turned out great! I didn't measure, and I used the whole bunch of asparagus versus only 10 spears as the recipe calls for, and it was awesome. The freshly grated cheese slightly melted on top of the hot asparagus... yum!

Tangy Cucumber and Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
I've made this a few times now, and we've substituted thinly sliced red onion for the green onion, and usually use only lime (no lemon). I also add a bit of honey because I like the sweetness to bring out the salty and sour. Guests love it too. Once I even had to use the cilantro in the tube instead of fresh because the store didn't have any fresh, and it turned out great.

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
We really enjoyed this. I doubled the Old Bay (Cajun seasoning) and we opted to cook for 3 hours on high... Next time, we'll use the low/7 hour option because the veggies were a little crunchy for a jambalaya. It was great leftover too (maybe even better because the veggies were softer)!

Quick Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
Loved it. We used sausage, broccoli and mushrooms instead of bacon because I had a little leftover sausage. As per a few reviews, I sauted the onions (and broccoli) in the sausage grease before adding them, and I had to increase cook time by about 10 minutes because the center was a little runny. I'll definitely make this again. UPDATE: I have made this at least 8 times now, and have used ham, morning star veggie sausage (2 patties) and spinach -- all awesome, so don't worry about mixing it up! I also took the suggestions to use pancake mix instead of flour, and lately I use a 1/2 tsp of onion powder instead of the onion (quicker and we actually prefer it) I usually use spinach and mushroom and I saute them quickly in the butter instead of just adding the melted butter to the mix. After trial and error, I bake this at 375 for 20-25 minutes and it turns out great. The edges are golden, but not too crusty. Many people have complimented this recipe.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
We had this for Thanksgiving (there are only 3 of us), and it was perfectly cooked. There was plenty of liquid for a yummy gravy (I strained it, and added a little flour). I also smeared the slow cooker and turkey with butter and added a tiny bit of water to cover the bottom as many reviews suggested.

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
LOVED this with a few modifications: After reading reviews, I only used about 1/2 the jalapenos, and instead of the green chile peppers, I used Herndez salsa verde (about 1/2 cup) because I usually have it on hand. I also only used 2 cans of beans (and fork-mashed about 1/2 of the first can). SO SO SO good.

Easy Mac and Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
As preparation for my 2-year-old's birthday party, we tried multiple versions of mac and cheese -- THIS RECIPE IS THE BEST HANDS DOWN. Other reviews mention that it is a bit bland, and so I added a little garlic powder and Ms. Dash. Also, I use RITZ crackers for the topping. The second time I made them, I completely forgot to add anything extra, and we hardly noticed the difference. They were a HUGE hit with both kids (ages 2-10) and adults at the birthday party!! We served all finger foods, so the mac-muffins were the way to go in that respect as well. I made them in mini-muffin tins, so they were a 3-bite type of appetizer. UPDATE: Maybe I was just in a Mac and Cheese mood when I previously gave this 5 stars, but I have made this at least 4 more times and it's just not as good as I remember. To be fair, I haven't been putting it into muffin tins, just a baking dish, but it's just not a 5 star for me anymore.
