Garlic and Herb Pull Apart Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2014
2 tsps rosemary is WAY too much, but that is a personal taste issue. It didn't get done in 20 minutes. We cooked it for 25 and it was still a little doughy but good. If I make it again it will be with little-to-no rosemary, 25 minutes cooking time, and some parmesan cheese.

Taco Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2014
This was very good but I only gave it 4 stars because IMHO it needed a tweak or two. Used an 8x8 pan, sprayed. Cooked the dough for 11 minutes. I added a layer of canned black beans after the sour cream. It didn't take anywhere near as many crushed tortilla chips as the recipe calls for. And how can you bake it until the cheese melts when you can't see the cheese because it's under all those chips? I cooked it for about 18 minutes and then let it sit for a bit. Then cut it into 6 pieces and ate it. Very good. I think a little salsa on top would be yummy. And I think I'll use the spicy taco seasoning next time. I did not add the water (that the taco season package calls for) just added the seasoning. The recipe doesn't say to add the water and I think it would have made it mushy.

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2014
I guess when you make too many changes to a recipe you're not really reviewing the same recipe anymore. Nevertheless here's what I changed: 2 cups dried peas, 1 quart chicken broth instead of 2 quarts water, 2 cups diced ham instead of ham bone, only 1 tsp salt, only 2 stalks celery. Most of these changes were based on other reviews. Next time I will leave out the marjoram as I'm not really a fan.

Creamy Chicken on Linguine

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2014
Food from heaven. I adjusted the proportions a bit as I was only cooking for two. I made more sauce, tho, because many reviewers said there wasn't enough. I undercooked the breasts a little and then covered them with foil to finish cooking while I was making the sauce. I didn't want them to be dry. It was the best new recipe I've tried in ages. Next time I might add some diced seeded tomato mostly for color, but OMG was this ever good as is.

Bland. And even tho I did use top sirloin steak, the meat was tough. Will try another recipe next time.

Poppy Seed Bread with Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2013
LOVE! I made it in a bundt pan and it was beautiful. I made the glaze a lot thicker but that's the only tweak.

Easy Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
Used black beans instead of chili beans, substituted 1 can drained Rotel instead of fresh tomatoes, just to add a little heat. Just barely crushed the tortilla chips hoping it would keep them from getting soggy, but they got soggy anyway. Maybe they're supposed to. Did not care for this recipe and won't be trying to tweak it because I already have a couple of recipes that are very similar.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
Absolutely delish! I cut the recipe in half for 2 of us and we ate it all! Next time I will add a little less sugar as I found it just a tad too sweet. My husband, a non-vegie, loved it! Looking forward to making it again.

Ham Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2012
Very good. Four stars because I also make a chicken tetrazzini, and in comparison I like the chicken better, but that's just a matter of personal taste. That said, we ate it all and said "yum". I did make some of the changes suggested by other reviewers; more onion, chicken broth instead of water, no pimento, added black pepper. Also added garlic & fresh mushrooms when sauteing the onion. Next time I'll add more mushrooms. Parmesan on the top. I will make it again. Delicious way to use Easter ham leftovers.

Baked Spaghetti I

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
This is delicious! I made a few omissions (green peppers, mushrooms) just because we don't like them. I added a little garlic, used sharp cheddar, and used milk instead of water. No major changes. I understood the recipe used spaghetti noodles but it is not, and isn't supposed to be, "spaghetti". I forgot to put the second layer of cheese on before I put on the mushroom soup and parmesan cheese, so I just put in on top of everything and threw it in the oven. We loved it. Can't wait to try it again made correctly!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
These were wonderful. I found that once the dough warmed up a bit it was limp and hard to cut (all that butter getting soft). So I divided it into 5 discs and refrigerated. Then I rolled and cut one batch at a time, combining the leftovers and refrigerating again. It took a little longer but it was well worth it. These cookies are yummy. I used cyndi's Sugar Cookie Glaze and they were just the right sweetness. Cut 'em thick and use parchment paper. Perfect. I actually took a picture of them decorated and emailed it to my friends -- I was quite proud of how pretty they were!
