Excellent. I will never need to make a corn syrup pie again.

Breakfast Casserole II

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2008
I made this for a friend's family and didn't get to taste it, but it smelled and looked wonderful! I sauteed half an onion with the sausage and left out the can of mushrooms...oh, I also added some cheese, salt, and pepper to the egg mixture. Layered the tater tots, sausage, then eggs. Will definitely make again, this time for me!

Chocolate Banana Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
Very good, but you do have to make sure that you get enough liquids into the mixture.. follow your cake box instructions. Mine said that I would need 1/2 cup oil (which I used), 3 eggs (same as this recipe), and 1 1/4 cups water. So, I mashed 3 bananas, poured them into a measuring cup, and then filled up with water to make the 1 1/4 cups. Otherwise, I think it would have been a little dry. I also poured in about 1 cup of mini choc chips, and then made it into 22 muffins rather than a cake. They took 19 minutes to bake in my oven. No icing needed. They were light and airy, but just moist enough. Delicious!

Dry Ranch Style Seasoning for Dip or Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2007
I'm giving this 4 stars instead of 5, because per previous reviews, I halved the amount of salt, and I think that was the right decision. Instead of the 1 tsp of seasoned salt, I put in 1/4 tsp of seasoned salt, and 1/4 tsp of regular salt. That seemed to be just the right amount. I made this into a dip with 1/4 cup buttermilk, an 8 oz container of fat-free plain yogurt, and about 1/2 cup of light mayonnaise. It was very good!

Fried Rice with Cilantro

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2007
This is EXCELLENT! It makes a great base for fried rice, with limitless options for add-ins. I made mine without the chicken and cilantro; threw in a handful of julienned carrots with the garlic and cooked for a couple of minutes; turned the heat up really high and added the rice, then made a well in the center and scrambled an egg and mixed it in. I then added the sugar, fish sauce, and soy sauce, along with a scant teaspoon of sesame oil, which in my opinion is a necessary ingredient for authentic-tasting fried rice. Don't skimp on the fresh basil either; wow, that is a great taste! I don't have a wok or a gas stove, but even with a large skillet on an electric stove, this worked really well. Just remember to turn the heat up really high before adding in the rice, so that it cooks quickly and doesn't get "gummy". My DH raved about this fried rice!! He thought it was fantastic, and my 3-year old gobbled it up as well. Be sure to double the recipe if you want to have even a chance at leftovers. It's good cold or rewarmed. This will become a staple in my recipe repertoire.

Chicken Wraps

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2007
Very good! I only had time to marinate them for 2 hours, and they still turned out delicious. Like other reviewers, I broiled them for the last couple of minutes to crisp them up a bit. Our family of 3 ate up the whole batch for supper. My 3 year-old loved them!

Caramel Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2006
This was incredibly delicious! I used 1 1/2 cups of walnuts instead of the 1 cup of pecans (because they were much cheaper). Wonderful! Make sure you whip up a huge batch of fresh real whipped cream to go with this pie. Worth every fattening calorie!

Quick and Easy Cheese Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2006
Very, very good! I did make a few modifications: per previous reviews, I increased the milk to 1 cup; I also decreased the sugar to 1 Tbsp. I used garlic salt instead of regular salt. And, I threw in a little parsley and added a little bit of shredded provolone cheese in addition to the cheddar. It was moist and cheesy and flavorful, and not crumbly. I will definitely make this again!

Margaret's Southern Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2006
Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum!! This is delicious. I used about 1/3 cup cocoa and only approx 1 cup sugar, per some previous review suggestions. I also didn't have any evaporated milk, so I just used about 10 oz of 1% milk instead. It worked out great! I just kept cooking and stirring until it was very thick and fudge-like. Wonderful chocolate pie!

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2005
We love this recipe, and we're not big meatloaf-lovers. I substituted spicy Cheez-Its for the crackers, and used parmesean for part of the cheese. Very tasty! I used the whole package of soup mix and it wasn't too salty for us. It does get greasy, so it's good to drain the meatloaf a few minutes before it's done cooking. I also made a sweet'n'sour glaze off of one of the other recipes on this site, and it was delicious!

Mushroom Saute

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2005
Yummy! These were great. I used about 2 Tbsp of olive oil and 2 Tbsp of butter, and only 16 oz of mushrooms. I also omitted the tarragon, as I didn't have any. They were wonderful anyways; my toddler couldn't get enough of them!

Chocolate Bar Pie I

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2005
Absolutely delicious! I even used some cool whip instead of whipping cream. It really is better if you chill it overnight though. It took a long time to set up.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2005
Very easy, and very yummy. This is the only way I make breaded chicken now. I substitute a little garlic powder for the garlic and it's just great.

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2005
Very, very tasty. It was a little soft, and instead of going to the trouble of trying to roll it into a ball, we should have just put it in a bowl and used it as a dip. It's great with the Honey Graham sticks.

Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2004
Very good. I did scale down the recipe by about half, using 4 pieces of bread, 8 eggs, and 1 lb of sausage in a 8 x 8 in pan. It took 45 minutes to cook, with the last 5 minutes uncovered. I used hot italian sausage, pepper jack cheese and a dash of tobasco sauce, and it had just the right amount of "kick".

Tomato Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2004
Yum! Wonderful recipe! I did add some italian seasoning and garlic salt to the breading mix, and the breading mix did turn out to be way too much, but otherwise, everything was great!

Wrapped Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2004
O.K. I changed it a little bit: I stirred together about 2 Tbsp dijon mustard, 2 Tbsp brown sugar, 2 Tbsp soy sauce, 1 Tbsp lemon juice, and a pinch of onion powder. I used this sauce to spoon over the salmon rather than just the plain dijon mustard. I also used non-fat butter spray rather than butter. It came out fabulous! The tender salmon and flaky phyllo dough made for a delectable dish. Yummm!

Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Reviewed: May 18, 2004
MMMM good! I used a chocolate pudding for the bottom layer and a vanilla pudding for the top pudding layer. I have made this twice, and both times my family gobbled it up.

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: May 18, 2004
Yummy! I used applesauce for half of the butter to make it less fattening. It took about 45 minutes to bake. I will make it again.

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: May 2, 2004
Excellent recipe! In place of the tomatillos, tomatoes, green chiles, and garlic used: 1 can of tomatoes with green chiles and 1 can of diced tomatoes with roasted garlic. Nice and spicy!
