Five Ingredient Ice Cream

Reviewed: May 24, 2014
I followed the directions exactly, and this came out really wonderful. I paired it with an apple pie cake (yes, you read that correctly), and it very nice. Some of the other posters noted the ice cream came out hard, but it didn't turn out that way for me. It was smooth and creamy. I suspect it's a matter of how well you whip the cream and fold in the milk mixture. Folding can be difficult. As others have said, use real vanilla and not imitation. This will give you full flavor. I'm going to try to some other flavorings next, including one made with chocolate ganache.

Bob's Slow Cooker Braciole

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
Very yummy! I pretty much followed the recipe on this one, but I did make my own marinara sauce based on my father-in-law's wonderful Bolonaise. I only gave it four stars because I wasn't that fond of the egg/breadcrumb filling. I didn't feel it added anything to the meat. I think if I do this again, I might go without that, and do as another poster said by rubbing garlic and spices into the meat. Beyond that, it was wonderful, and we didn't have any leftovers of the meat. If you want to pair this with a nice side, try a simple pasta salad. It works really well.

Chicken and Rice Casserole I

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
I was looking for this kind of recipe, but most of the ones I saw, I didn't like the look of. This was the one I decided to go with. I did make some tweaks though. I used Cream of Chickena and Mushroom soup, and fresh mushrooms. I also threw in some spices (basil, oregano, parsley, salt and pepper). I cooked the sauce before putting it in the oven, and put the rice in the sauce to let it soften up a bit before baking. This turned out really good though, and I think I've found another regular recipe to add to the rota.

Amy's Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
They were all right, but a little bland. I'm not sure what the cheesy crackers bring to the party. I also used fresh diced onion, which didn't work too well because I'm terrible dicing onion small enough to work right. Question...is that a half cup cheesy crakers before or after they're crushed? I just grabed a handful of crackers out of the box and smashed them up, but the turkey seemed a little loose.

Zesty Succotash

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
Yummy! I was recently told I had hypertension, and I was looking for low-sodium recipes. I found a main dish that I thought succotash would go well with, so I took a look for a succotash recipe that sounded good, and would work as low-sodium. This was perfect, and even my husband loved it. We substitued olive oil for the butter, and I accidently got black beans instead of kidney beans...next time we'll probably put both beans in. Lima beans would also be good. I didn't use any salt, because chili powder has salt in it. I also went light on the hot sauce because the hubby isn't fond of too spicy. It turned out great!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
I lost my favorite recipe, so I was looking for one that was close...this was it! I did add vanilla, cinnimon, and a little bit of lemon based on what was on my original recipe. I also used butter flavored shortening, because that's what I had. Anyway, these turned out soft and yummy. (I didn't put in the baking soda, because I didn't realize I was out of it.) Anyway, this is a good recipe, and I recommend it to anyone. The additions are also good.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2006
I made this as a special request from my hubby (I was going to use a zucchini bread recipe, but my mother said the types of bread were too different, so I found one for banana bread here). Anyway, with some help from other reviewers, it turned out very nice. I added some cinnamon and vanilla, and chocolate chips. Watch the chips though...I put too many in, and they overwhelm the banana a bit. Per another reviewer, I cooked it at 350 for about 50 minutes, then turned it down to 300 for the last 10 minutes or so. We'll definitely keep this recipe though!

Easy and Delicious Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2006
This recipe is wonderful! We make it all the time. We did find that we had to put spices inside the chicken to really get any flavor out of them, though. If you want your chicken to really pop, make sure to get spices or stuffing inside, and under the skin!

Ibby's Grasshopper Pie

Reviewed: May 13, 2006
I wasn't sure this would turn out quite right, because I doubled the recipe to make a large rectangular version like my aunt used to make to Christmas. It didn't really turn out like her's, but it was still really delicious. We had this as a dessert for a "Lady's Night" with my co-workers. I had trouble folding in the whipped cream, but that was totally my fault...I've never folded before, and I used whipped topping and I think the marshmellow mix was still a little too hot. But, it all turned out, so I guess I can't complain. I also put Andes mints on the top in a checkerboard pattern for decoration. They matched perfectly!

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2005
I liked this, but it was probably a little strange for me. I would have never thought to have chicken and the sweet flavor of cinnimon together. We also made this with vanilla yogurt because I don't like plain yogurt even mixed with other things.

Beef Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2005
This is really good, so long as you do it right. The first time I didn't realize I needed tomato sauce for the enchilada sauce, so I had to make do with ketchup...this made it way too salty. The second time we made this, we used ground turkey, and it turned out really nice. I also add green and red pepper to the meat mix because we like that.

Italian Style Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2005
We really liked this recipe, and we've made it twice now, one of those times for a friend of ours who also liked it. We serve it with roasted veggies which make a very nice side.

Calzone

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2005
This was all right, but it stuck to the pan and it just wasn't anything spectacular. If we make this again, we'll add more ingredients and put foil under the crust to make it easier to work with.

Lemon-Pepper Salmon II

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2005
This turned out really nice! It was simple and tasty. Though, we thought next time we'll try the longer time a lower temperature, because we had one thick piece of salmon that just refused to cook through. I think it took about 15 minutes rather than the recommended 8.

Zesty Chicken Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2005
I really liked this recipie, but my fiance thought there was too much taco flavor. We made it according to the recipie, and we didn't find it to be too dry, and thought it held together really well. We did use turkey though, because the store didn't have any ground chicken.

Mexican Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2005
This one started smelling good long before it was finished, which is a good place to start! I added another cup of chicken stock, a green and red pepper, and a couple kicks of hot sauce as well as some cayanne which gave this dish a spicey jump. It's a good simple receipe if you're looking for something hot and filling.

Sausage and Rice Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2005
We've become pretty big fans of stuffed peppers, and this is a decent reciepe to use. Though we usually substitute the sausage for beef, because I like it better. This is a good, classic reciepe though, and I highly recommend it as a starting point if you're in for some nice stuffed peppers. We also don't boil our peppers before we bake them. It seemed like an unnecessary step that didn't do much for the peppers.

Hot Pizza Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2005
I made this for my family at Thanksgiving as an appitizer. It was a HUGE hit. When in doubt for a good dip, this is the one to go with.

Gumbo Style Chicken Creole

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2005
We actually made a few changes to this receipie which gave it a real nice kick. To make it a bit more soup-like we added 2 cups of chicken stock. We also added kielbasa (chirozo would work as well!), and threw in a few more spicies because we like it flavorful and spicy. This turned out to be one of our favorites, and we'll definitly be using it more in the future.

Lemon Pepper Chicken I

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2002
I tried this recipie using Mrs. Dash rather than pepper, to give it more flavor. This is a great recipie either way, though, and it's fast for those looking for a quick meal.
