Creamy Spiced Coleslaw

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2014
I didn't want to run out for buttermilk so I tried this recipe. I like that there is no raw onion in it so my children can't complain!

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
It tasted ok. Would add the cilantro in at the very end next time rather than cooking it for so long.

Famous Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
I really enjoyed these. They came out perfect for me. I put the butter around the pork chops, not on top at all. I also used thick pork chops and butterflied them.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
I used Sweet Bay Ray's BBQ sauce...can't really go wrong with that. I just boiled the chicken and shredded it. cooked it for a few minutes to heat through. I saw this as a feature recipe and it sounded too good to wait until the next day.

Peppy Macaroni

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
From the 2 year old to a 12 year old, all 4 kids I served this to liked it. It was easy and a different idea for lunch. I thought it was ok, but it pleased the child's pallet!

Quick Weekday Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
I added some salt and onion powder to the mix. I accidentally added the 1/2 cup of cheese to the mix then topped it with more cheese. I liked it. My 2 year old loved it.

2-Step Skillet Chicken Broccoli Divan

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
Fast, easy. Not too shabby. Added some thyme as suggested by other reviewers. Would probably make some white rice to serve it over next time. I missed the rice that is in the traditional dish.

Ranch Chicken Tacos

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
My family didn't like this at all. Could have used another 2 tsp of taco seasoning and it would have been ok for me, not even my not picky husband only ate one taco. Was very bland. Even my son who eats ranch with virtually everyone didn't like it.

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2011
I doubled this recipe so i could take it to a potluck with the neighbors. I used the BIG, giant bag of coleslaw mix from Sam' club. I didn't have buttermilk so I substituted sour cream. I added celery seed as I just like the way it looks in slaw! Also added extra kosher salt to my taste.

Fresh Strawberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
I've had this recipe in my box for quite awhile anticipating it. I was disappointed. My SIL said it best..."it tastes like strawberry jam on cake" would have been better off just making a poke cake. It was edible, but nothing special. It was just as pretty as the picture and came out of the pan perfectly. I served it slightly warm and with vanilla ice cream as suggested...still, it was no ones' favorite and we all love strawberries. It wasn't a hit with our family. Sorry.

Vegan Bean Taco Filling

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
I halved the recipe. It was the perfect amount for my husband and I. There was a bit too much cumin for our taste, so I would reduce that by half next time. I put the mixture in a flour tortilla with some mexican rice, rolled it and fried it so that I had a chimichanga while he had soft tacos. Served it with lettuce. It was great. Didn't miss meat at all!

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
I liked these fine. Used TacoBell hot sauce. The kids didn't like them. Would leave the corn out next time to try and entice the kids to eat them.

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
Used buttermilk instead of milk, just because I had it on hand. Would add vanilla next time( took it out and then forgot to put it in), but was quick and easy and a tasty alternative for breakfast besides the old standby pancakes.

Baked Soy Lemon Chops

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
Took other reviewer's advice and used 1/4 C soy sauce and 1/4 water then followed recipe. It was just okay for us...I found myself wishing I added sugar and made a teriyaki sauce instead, but my 18 month old loved it.

Sunday Morning Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes

Reviewed: May 21, 2011
I made these as another reviewer suggested and left out the vinegar and used 2 TBS of lemon juice rather than one. I also had to omit the poppy seeds as I didn't have any on hand. I put butter on them and dusted with powdered sugar just like the photo and topped with fresh strawberries. Would love to try with a flavored syrup such as blueberry or with some lemon curd and whipped cream. My picky 3 yr old ate 5 pancakes himself.

Cherry Almond Coffeecake

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
Was certainly a sweet cake, very moist. Everyone who tasted it loved it and said it was a keeper. Would love to do one with peach pie filling.

Streusel Topped Pumpkin Pie by EAGLE BRAND®

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
Made this a few times now. It is quick and easy and a super great pie. I love the topping. This is my Thanksgiving pie. Its so much tastier than plain pumpkin pie in my opinion and hasn't disappointed yet!
