German Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2014
This was my first time making a German Chocolate cake from scratch and I was a bit nervous since it was for my husband's birthday. He absolutely loves German Chocolate cake. There is a lot to the recipe and it did take some time but it was well worth it. It was very moist and yummy, just as a cake should be. I think the cake flour makes all the difference. I did not use this recipe for the filling/frosting though. I took another reviewer's advice and used the recipe on the back of the Baker's German Chocolate box. It made more than enough to cover the top and fill the cake layers whereas some people indicated that this recipe didn't. I will definitely make this again for my husband's next birthday.

Chicken Enchiladas V

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
This is a great recipe! I highly recommend keeping the chiles and chili powder as it can be bland without them. We use green onions. They add a bit of color and they taste just as good.

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
Oh my gosh, this is fabulous!! My first batch I cooked for the full hour and I did not like that at all--has the consistency of Cracker Jack, which I don't like. My husband liked that one though. So my next batch I only cooked for 15 minutes in the oven and then took it out. That was perfect!! Needless to say, it's all gone for Christmas gifts and now my kids are asking me to make more. This recipe is a keeper!

Lemon-Lime Soda Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2002
I thought this salad was wonderful, and I'm not much of a jello salad eater! This will definitely be added to our recipe box and used often. Extremely easy to make and sooo good!

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2003
We loved this recipe! We stuck with the recipe except added a little bit more garlic. Next time, however, I think I will have either less noodles or more chicken. I'd also like to try another noodle besides fettucine. Mushrooms would add a nice touch as well. The sauce is wonderful and the sundried tomatoes just make it!

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2003
We really enjoyed this soup! I really didn't change anything from the recipe, but next time I might add a bit more cheese and broccoli. Otherwise, an excellent soup for those cold nights!

Sesame Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2003
Will definitely be making this one again! I decreased the oil to 1 Tbsp. and let it marinate from early morning to early evening. Cooked it a bit longer than necessary, so it wasn't as tender, but that was my fault. Excellent over rice!

Mushroom Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2003
An excellent dinner! We served ours over egg noodles. I only added about half of the mushrooms needed (since that's all I had) and I did add an entire onion. Although it was still delicious, next time I will add a full 1/2 lb. of mushrooms or cut down on the onion a bit. Loved it though!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2003
Excellent cookies! I can't stop eating them. I did add an entire bag of chocolate chip cookies rather than just one cup. Even though I love chocolate, it's a bit much, so next time I will add just the one cup. It's very important to let them sit on the cookie sheet for awhile before moving them to the wire rack! They taste even better the second day . . . and the third . . . and the fourth, etc.

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2003
My husband was in seventh heaven with these tacos! What a fantastic recipe! The only change I made was omitting the oregano and adding cilantro instead. I was debating about whether or not to use the entire lime rather than just half, but I stuck with half . . . and it tasted perfect! This is definitely going in our recipe box!

Mendocino Chicken Salad

This was so delicious! My husband and I loved it! The smoked chicken and basil really do make it different. I didn't change a thing with this recipe . . . and it is definitely a keeper! Thanks!

Pasta and Herbs

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2003
Excellent sidedish for just about anything! The fresh herbs really make this dish stand out. I halved the butter at first but soon realized that you do need an entire cube. My husband loved this! (I don't care for olives, so I omitted them.)

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
Loved this recipe! Made it for a family get together and it was soo good! I used the satiny glaze recipe that many reviewers recommended and that too was wonderful. Added some raspberries to the final product!! Now all my family wants the recipe! I'm sure this will be something that I make again and again.

D's Famous Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
Didn't change a thing! My husband was so in love with this salsa that he practically licked the bowl clean. Both he and I would agree with other reviewers in that this should be made about a day to two days in advance of when you play to eat it as it doesn't taste very good the first day. The best was about 2 days later. All the flavors melded together and it was fabulous! So easy to make too.

Zucchini Bread IV

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
Not a big zucchini eater but I love this bread--and so do my kids! The only difference is I add an additional tsp. of vanilla and I don't use nuts. A great recipe that's now in my file!

Barb's Broccoli-Cauliflower Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
This is a very good salad! It's really the only time I eat cauliflower. I use mayonnaise instead of the salad dressing. I've also had this with cubes of cheddar tossed in, which is pretty good too, but not necessary.
