Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2014
After reading comments, I sauteed the onions (I actually sauteed them in onion soup mix with a little oil and butter-- weird, I know, but I think it added a great flavor). Also added worchestershire. The reviews had me a little concerned about the sauce, so I didn't make a ton of it-- huge mistake-- the sauce was delicious. I will definitely double the recipe next time-- I did use brown mustard instead of prepared. Hubby doesn't like mustard at all, so I didn't want to give any indication that the recipe contained mustard). I also used italian seasoned breadcrumbs. my only complaint-- it was really greasy with chuck-- next time, I will use the 93% lean meat and hope that it doesn't come out too dry. I did use the loaf pan-- maybe I would lose some of the grease if I cooked it in a 9x13?

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
Very good. Very easy. I added a little more in the way of seasoning. I also prefer tomato paste to sauce (I only used 2-3 tablespoons). Finally, I diced a yellow and a red bell pepper as well as an onion. I also made it with brown rice (because that's what I keep on hand.) I thought it was delicious. So did he!!

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2011
This was an okay recipe. I made it for a friend's birthday party-- did two layers and made a quick chocolate buttercream icing. People generally liked it. I got lots of a compliments and a few even came back for seconds. I followed some of the tips as well as the regular recipe-- added some extra milk, looked for a consistency of yellow cool whip, even beat the heck out of my eggs. I don't think this was really like white cake-- maybe that explains the comparison to a sugar cookie. It has a nice sort of light flavor, but it was too dense for my tastes. I appreciated that it wasn't too sweet though. It matched well with the icing-- my friend's choice combo. I made the "Joy of Cooking's" White cake batter recipe 2 a couple of days later since both my boy and my bestie love white cake. It took maybe an extra few minutes and was so light and airy, I couldn't believe it. White cake probably shouldn't have yolks. Take the extra few minutes to beat up your egg whites properly. Totally worth it!

Awesome Roast Beef

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
very good. I added the onion soup packet per suggestions. I also added onion and mushrooms (fresh). I reduced the au jus with some corn starch to make a gravy to go over the potatoes I cooked with it. No leftovers on this one. The bf loved it.
