Easy Salsa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2012
Wanna know how turn turkey into a delicious meal that your family will LOVE? Use this recipe! I was just looking for a change from my old regular ketchup based meatloaf recipe and decided to try this one. The only thing I didn't have on hand were the breadcrumbs, so I just crushed up some croutons that I had sitting in the pantry. I still love my old ketchup meatloaf recipe, but I plan on using this salsa version more often. Thanks Ms. Tinkerbell!

Tamale Pie Pronto

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
Mmmmmm! Made a few changes. Along with the ingredients I also added some garlic powder, a can of diced green chiles and a large potato diced up very finely. Then I simmered the meat mixture on the stove for about 30 minutes to let the flavors really infuse. Instead of biscuits I used two boxes of good old Jiffy Cornbread batter (prepared according to directions) and spread it on the bottom of the pan. Then I spooned the meat mixture on top and added the cheese. Cooked for 40 minutes. This is wonderful! So easy to prepare and good comfort food. Thanks!

'Calabacitas Guisada' (Stewed Mexican Zucchini)

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
A simple and tasty dish! I also used olive oil instead of vegetable oil and added a pkg. of frozen corn (as used in the traditional mexican recipes) and about 1/2 cup chopped green chile for zing. Also added 10 minutes to the cooking time and served it with baked chicken. A perfect low-cal but filling dish! Thanks for the recipe!

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
I had to make this on the stove due to time constrictions, so I made a couple small changes. I added 1 can of beef consomme (so that it wouldn't dry out during cooking) and about a cup of thinly sliced carrots, then let it simmer on the stove at low heat for about 1-1/2 hours. Served it over steamed rice and oh my gosh was this so good! The flavors of the beef and peppers blended so well and the overall flavor was rich and delicious! A definite keeper! Thanks for the recipe.

Taco Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2008
The best thing about this site is that it gives you the base recipe and then you can alter it to your own personal preference! Instead of ground beef I used ground chicken. I did not use the taco seasoning but instead added a can of reduced fat cream of mushroom soup, chopped mild green chiles, diced tomatoes, onions and garlic salt & pepper to taste. I used about 4 oz. of lowfat sour cream and unsalted tortilla chips. It came out really good and surprisingly the whole family enjoyed it. Thanks for Stephanie!

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
I figured there had to be a better way to cook a beautiful corned beef brisket better than throwing it in a pot of water with the prepackaged seasonings like I've been doing for the past 10 years and this recipe was exactly what I've been looking for! I was a bit leary about using the whole 12 oz. can of Guinness (we have an 89 year old who despises alcohol), so I used only 1/2 the can and added chicken broth to compensate (would've used beef broth but I was all out). I was also worried that the meat would taste overly sweet with the brown sugar rub. But I shouldn't have worried. This recipe was flawless. I cooked it exactly as the recipe says and the corned beef came out fabulous! It was tender and juicy and maintained all it's flavor without the over abundance of spices you get in the little packet. Thanks so much for offering this recipe. It's a keeper!

Neat Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
Soooo much better than the canned stuff! Didn't have any tomato soup on hand so I substituted with 1/2 c. tomato sauce & 1/2 c. ketchup. Simple recipe with down home comfort goodness. Thanks!

Judy's Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
I don't know if this can be called a salad or a dessert but it was fabulous! Every bit as decadent as strawberry cheesecake! The family loved it but I think I loved it the best. I had no changes to make to this recipe since it came out perfect. Thanks for the great dessert..err...salad!

Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
Easy and oh so good! Made a few additions though by chopping up some onions, celery and carrots then sauteed them in a bit of butter until tender then added that to the dish before baking. I also added an extra 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese and stirred it into the mixture before baking. I only make tuna casserole because my family likes it. I'm not too crazy about it myself. But this recipe was a winner. I loved it as much as the familia this time. Thanks for the recipe!

Easy Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
The only change I made is that I used chocolate CoolWhip instead of regular. This was delicious and the whole family loved it especially when I added sliced bananas on top! It may not be real "mousse" but it's definitely geared for us busy folk who don't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. Thanks Luna!

Green Chile Stew with Pork

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2007
This turned out wonderful! I used leftover pork chops, substituted the tomatoes with tomatillos, used a good quality green salsa, added some diced potatoes, threw in a bit of cumin and wow! My family loved it. Thanks for the recipe. It's a keeper.

Hamburgers and Ketchup Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2006
This is exactly what it is meant to be be. Wonderful comfort food. Nothing fancy but something the kids love. This is also very similar to our grandma's meatloaf recipe, so of course we loved it even more. We put the burgers & gravy on top of steamed white rice. Delicious!

Macaroni Au Gratin

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2006
Karen you're a genius. I was going to make the old boxed stuff as a dinner side dish tonight when I saw your recipe. It looked easy enough so I figured I'd give it a try. I followed the recipe except for an extra couple slices of leftover american & swiss cheese that I had floating in the fridge. This dish looks beautiful with a crispy topping and piping hot cheesy goodness inside. Thanks for this recipe!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2006
Whoa...I have no idea what I did wrong but these totally flopped. They spread wayyyy out and the cookies were completely flat. I threw the first batch away and am trying to salvage the rest of the dough by baking the rest in a cake pan like a cookie cake. Don't know if it will turn out. The cooked part did have a nice flavor anyways.

Creamy Coconut Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2006
Oh my gosh...this was so good! Just had to make one change. Since we don't have coconut milk here in the boondocks, I substituted with coconut pudding & followed the recipe as usual. Also topped the cake off with fresh sliced strawberries. It was pretty, very light and tasteful. Great for our Valentines Day desert. The family loved it. Thanks!

Strawberry Whip

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2006
This was sooo good! Just changed a couple things. I cut the recipe in half since I only had one 6 oz. box of jello, but I added the whole 8 oz. whipped topping, extra strawberries & sliced bananas. This salad came out firm and simply delicious. The kids thank you!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
Wonderful stuff here. Doubled the teriyaki sauce, used boneless skinless chicken breasts and just poured the teriyaki sauce directly onto the chicken in a large lined glass pan. Baked at 350 for 20 minutes then turned over and baked for another 20 minutes. Great flavor & the chicken was so tender. Definite keeper. Thanks!

Southern Potato Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2005
Excellent easy recipe. Instead of sweet relish, I chopped up some crisp bread-n-butter pickles and added a little finely chopped fresh dill, plus added a little extra mustard for more zing. I like the fact that I didn't have to use as much mayo as regular potato salads thanks to all the other flavors. The family loved this recipe. Thanks Bobbye.
