Cone Cupcakes

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
Fun recipe! They turned out great for us and we got 24 exactly. Get the regular sized cones, not the large sized, to get the right number of cupcakes (unless you want a few really big ones!).

Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2008
This is a fantastic recipe! My kids love kettle corn but I've been trying to find healthier ways to make it than the microwave bags you get at the store. This is nearly as easy, cheaper, and doesn't have the extra junk that the microwave bags have. Not to mention that it tastes SO much better! We added a sprinkling of salt after it popped (but while it was still sticky) and it was perfect. We did the 3 kernel test and I alternated the shaking and still ended up with some kernels at the bottom with burned oil/sugar on them but it was my first time.

Beef Taco Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
Delicious! I made a double batch and used half enchilada sauce and half mild rotel for the tomatoes. Added some extra dehydrated onions and garlic for flavor, put it only about half the milk it called for, used ground turkey in place of the beef, and used flour tortillas instead of the corn. It was very yummy! My kids all loved it, and my husband and I did too. And it wasn't too spicy for the kids (though for all adults I'd definitely add some more spice to kick it up!). I froze the second batch of this. It's a great freezer meal!

Half-Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2007
I've been making these cookies for 12 years (they are in a sunset magazine cookbook- I lost the book and was lucky to find it here!) and LOVE them. My family and friends loved them when I was younger and my young kids love them now. They are great as an on the go breakfast just as it says, and very healthy with lots of fiber. Delicious, easy, and a great *nutritious* snack!

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2006
I left out the jalapeno and green chile on this so my kids would eat it. It's still delicious and very flavorful. This made about 6 cups, which to me equals 6 servings. The nutrition information didn't look right to me so I calculated it myself not including the cheese and it is just 216 calories per cup (not 700-something as it says) and 32 grams of protein per serving.

Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2005
These muffins are delicious! I used sugar instead of the splenda, and didn't do the topping, and they're just wonderful. So healthy too. I found they did make about 30% more than the recipe stated. My kids love these!

Scottish Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2003
This is such a wonderful casserole that is easy as can be! I had lots of leftover mashed potatoes and ham from Christmas Eve dinner and didn't know what to do with it. I did a search on here for a recipe with both of those things and this was the only one that came up so I tried it. It took 5 minutes to prepare with my leftovers and the creamed corn. I added a handful of frozen corn to it to firm it up a bit, and added salt and pepper, crushed crackers, and a handful of frozen cheddar cheese to the top. My 1 and 4 year olds love it, and so do I! We were really getting sick of the same old breakfast and noodle casseroles to use up the ham leftovers and this was a refreshing alternative. Since my potatoes were cold, straight from the fridge, and because I wanted the cheese/cracker top to get crisp I increased the backing time to 45 minutes and it was perfect. I also wasn't sure about the amounts of everything (since I used leftovers) so I just guessed and the amounts are great. The ham/potatoe/corn flavors together are delicious. I plan on freezing the rest of my leftover ham so I can make this whenever I want!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2003
This is my new favorite cookie recipe. It is delicious! People that say they don't like ginger cookies gobble these up, even in the middle of summer rather than winter when this type of cookie is usually made. These are absolutely perfect.

Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2003
This cookie is delicious! I found that they made 40 cookies rather than 24 cookies for me, which also lowered the calories to about 100 calories each which was a nice bonus. These cookies *are* light and kind of airy which I really like about them. They are also chewy and delicious! A lot like a chocolate brownie. Great recipe and sooo easy!

Wanda's Chicken Noodle Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2003
This recipe is very tasty, kid-friendly, and easily lends itself to adaptations. I used frozen peas and corn rather than the carrots, celery, and onions and was able to skip the sauteeing step. I added celery salt in place of the celery and onion powder in place of the onion. I didn't have any leftover chicken so I just threw some frozen chicken breasts in the microwave for 10 minutes and then shredded it. These changes made it a lot quicker to prepare, and very kid-friendly. My 4 and 1 year olds declared it "yum!". Oh, and my husband and I enjoyed it too :) Great recipe!

Hash Brown Casserole II

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2003
This casserole is wonderful! I made no changes whatsoever and it turned out fantastic. It freezes great too- this actually sat in the freezer, forgotten after our baby's birth, for several months and it was still delicious after all that time. We especially loved the cornflakes on top. Great recipe!

Lemon Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2003
Wow! This cake is wonderful! I have never made a bundt cake before and was a bit scared it wouldn't come out of the pan but it did *very* easily. I just used cooking spray rather than greasing and flouring, and then right before the cake was done I put a dishrag wet with hot water on the counter and put the cake right on that from the oven for 10 seconds. Then I carefully inverted it onto a baking rack and it came right out, no problem at all. To boost the lemon flavor I also added a little packet of lemon koolaid (just the flavoring, no sugar added) that had been sitting in my cupboards and wasn't going to be used, and that really made the cake *very* lemon-y. I also used Fresca (a grapefruit flavored soda) instead of lemon-lime and it was great- I think any citrus-y drink would work, including lemonaid or even Mountain Dew. Very delicious cake- I'm sure I will make it often.

Rice, Asparagus and Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2003
whew! This salad has a lot of very snappy flavors to it- too much for me, and I like very flavorful foods. Next time I make it I will leave out the green onions, and I think it will be delicious.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 2, 2003
WOW! This meatloaf is fantastic!!! I've made meatloaf before and it has always turned out ok, but never like this! This recipe is a definite keeper. I added 1 T worcestershire sauce to it.

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: May 2, 2003
After adjusting the cooking time these were great! I cooked the potatoes in the microwave for a few minutes first and the alloted time still wasn't long enough. It took about 50 minutes to get a nice brown crust on the potatoes. But other than that this is a great recipe. I also used 3 T of onion powder instead of the onion (I hate chopping them and my husband won't eat them anyway) and it was fine. I added more than a pinch of salt and pepper too- more like 1/4 t each, and also added 1/8 t garlic powder. These went really well with the brown sugar meatloaf on this site.

Chicken Parmigiana

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2003
This was a terrific, very easy recipe that everyone in the family enjoyed. I had no idea Chicken Parmigiana was so easy and so had never attempted it before but this was *so simple*! My husband is extremely picky and he ate this right up, and my 3 year old loved it as well. Great recipe; I didn't change a thing!

Yummy Yam Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2003
Wow! This recipe really is great as the previous reviewers said! Delicious. I might increase the spices some and add more brown sugar on top next time.

Minestrone Soup I

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2003
This was a great soup! I added a teaspoon of italian seasoning (basil and oregano for the most part) and it added a nice Italian flavor to it. I also substituted garbanzo beans and used olive oil instead of butter and it was great. I did find it quite salty when finished; maybe my chicken broth is just saltier than usual since some other reviewers thought it wasn't salty enough but I think next time I will only add 1/2 teaspoon of salt and let the family add salt as they wish.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2003
This is a great soup! I did feel that it needed a little more "oomph" so I replaced the water with chicken stock and that did the trick! We also used balsalmic vinegar like another reviewer mentioned and left it out on the table so each person could add to it to their own taste. It was fantastic! Thanks!!

Breakfast Casserole I

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2003
This is a great casserole! I added 1/2 t. onion and 1/8 t. garlic powder and increased the dry mustard powder 1/2 t. and also substituted frozen hashbrowns for the broccoli (for my picky husband) and increased the cheese by about a cup or so. It turned out fantastic! I wasn't sure about putting the bread slices in whole- my other strata recipes have you rip the bread into pieces- but it turned out great and was one less step! I also cooked the bacon in the microwave which makes it even easier! It's also very kid friendly- my 3 year old daughter has been asking when we can have it again. Great recipe- thanks!
