Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2014
It was bland. Both hubby and I though so, and only 1 out of 3 kids ate it. That was even after I added sauteed onion and garlic. It needs something else...maybe a full package of taco mix? Overall, it was ok, but it needs some more spice for flavor.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2014
GREAT recipe! I followed the recipe exactly. Best tasting lasagna I've ever tasted...definitely better than Olive Garden's. Even my pickiest eater child loved it. I wouldn't change anything, except perhaps a little less salt, it was slightly salty IMO.

Slow Cooker Swiss Steak

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2013
I followed this recipe almost exactly and it was delicious! The only differences: I used elk round, didn't have celery, cut sugar in half, and I added a half a tomato can of water with a little beef bullion because I wanted more sauce. Also, I threw the veggies in raw (sliced baby carrots and sliced onions into rings), and I thought they turned out perfect. The meat was super tender...fell apart when it was forked. I served with mashed potatoes, and hubby and I scarfed it down. My four-year-old twins weren't fans, but that is typical (they are super picky!). I will definitely make this again in the near future.

Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes with Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2013
I followed this recipe exactly as written. It was pretty good...hubby went for a second helping, and 1 out of 3 kids ate it (typical). I would have to agree with other reviewers that it is a little on the bland side. We definitely added salt and pepper to our individual plates when we ate it. I love peas, but when I make this again, I will probably leave them out. If you like somewhat mushy peas, then go ahead and leave them in. I will also add more cheese next time too. "Cheesy" is in the title of this recipe, but while eating it, you wouldn't think there was any in there. Overall, a good recipe that I will try again with slight modifications.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2013
I made this tonight with my leftover Easter ham, and it was delicious! My kids (twins are 3, plus a 6 yo) are PICKY, and they gobbled this down. Hubby went for seconds. I followed the recipe as written with the exception of using chicken broth instead of water and cut the bouillon down to about a teaspoon. The recipe says to let your potatoes boil 10-15 min, but maybe their potatoes were bigger than mine. My potatoes were well done after 6 minutes boiling, so keep an eye on them!

Old Fashioned Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
This was my first attempt at making homemade mac and cheese, and I loved it! I think I waited so long to try making homemade because I was intimidated a bit. This recipe was very clear and simple to follow! I also liked that there weren't a hundred different ingredients. I followed the recipe exactly, although I was a little leery about the Swiss cheese because I'm not a big fan. You can't tell Swiss cheese was added, and it tasted great. 1 out of 3 kids ate it (that's typical though), and my husband enjoyed it, but he said he would give it 3 stars. Since I'm the cook and the boss, I give it 5 stars anyway.

White Bean 'n' Ham Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
Made this last night and it was good...but it seemed to be missing a little something. Bacon? My husband and 4 year old liked it enough, but my twin 2 year olds wouldn't eat it. Definitely double the recipe if you want to feed more than a few people. The only changes I made were using half broth and half water, and I added garlic. I love that this recipe is healthy and I will make it again!
