Best Spinach Dip Ever

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2003
I printed this recipe ages ago, but never had the need for the dip until recently. BOY am I glad I made it! I have now taken it to two parties and have been asked for the recipe by so many people. They are surprised at how easy it is. The leek soup mix is the key ingredient, and tastes so much better than the vegetable (IMHO). I used a full 10 oz. package of spinach (it needs it for texture), and I doubled the recipe. It works best if you squeeze as much liquid out of the spinach as you can. If not it could turn out too runny. Overall, it's quick, easy, delicious, and will become a staple in my entertaining!

Cafeteria Carrot Souffle

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2002
This was much too sweet, but not too bad. If I made it again, I would cut the sugar in half (as other ratings suggest), and add spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.).

Easy Peach Crisp I

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2003
The taste of this recipe was fabulous!! I forgot to consider the other reviewer's suggestions, and after reading them, I absolutely would have cut the sugar in half. I liked it but it would be just as good (if not better) without as much sugar. I did have to bake it for about 15-20 minutes longer than suggested, to make it brown and to let the juices soak into the cake mixture. Make sure you poke lots of wholes in the top as well. Also, I thought there was a little too much liquid, but after letting it sit, the juices thickened to an acceptable consistency. Overall a definite keeper, and suitable for company (a real compliment!).

Watergate Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2005
Outstanding as always, however, I left out the nuts for my family's taste, and I used a whole 8 ounce container of cool whip for extra creaminess and a 20 ounce can of pineapple. It was great!

Elvis Presley Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2005
I don't know how anyone could stand this cake as sweet as it could be with as much sugar the recipe calls for. I used almost 3 cups confectioner's sugar for the frosting (which was good), and 1 cup for the pineapple mixture (of which I used a 20 ounce can per other reviewers- but I don't think it needed the sugar, and the juice needs to be drained- makes the cake too soggy). I ground up the pecans in my food processor and mixed them in with the frosting and then sprinkled a little on top of the finished cake. That worked out great- the frosting was the best part, IMHO, and it was a beautiful presentation. I would give it five stars because it's a great mix of ingredients, it just will take some work to get them to my liking. I think just the cake and the frosting would be great too, without the pineapple, and it would make the process easier. Also, I made the cake mix with whole eggs instead of just egg whites. It's a very good recipe, overall.

Tofu Hummus

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2003
I am sorry, this was terrible! I am a big hummus fan, but this was not what I expected. It was spicy (too much lemon juice), and needed something else (maybe salt). I am giving it two stars because the texture was nice (thanks to the silken tofu). I will use tofu in all of my hummus recipes now.

Weeknight Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
I really dislike rating a recipe this low but wow I did not like the smell or taste of this dish at all!! Browned on the stovetop and finished in the oven, and the flavor it lacked was just as bad as the flavor it had! I couldn't eat it. I was really hoping it would turn out for me given all of the good reviews it has, but unfortunately it didn't!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2002
Excellent recipe. Very easy and tasty. The longer the meat cooks, the better it tastes and the more tender it is. I took the suggestions of other reviewers and added marjoram, oregano, thyme, garlic, and onions the second time I cooked it, and it definitely made an improvement (although it was great as is). Will become a regular for me (the highest of compliments!)

Absolutely one of the most fun and flavorful recipes I've tried. And it was delicious! I used a beautiful and intricate bundt pan from Williams-Sonoma, and I didn't think it would come out whole but it did! It was a big hit with everyone! Thanks Andee!

David's Secret Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies

THis was a big hit for Christmas one year. I thought they were great and the rice crispies gave it a good flavor and a neat texture. It was kind of messy to make but delicious!

Awesome Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2002
I agree with some of the others who didn't like this cake either. The taste was okay, but the texture was very rubbery and the icing was pasty. It really wasn't much like a cake at all. I, too, don't understand why this recipe is rated so high. I even made it with the modifications from the reviews and it still didn't work. Needs much less oil, or more flour, and the icing needs less cream cheese and butter to make it more fluffy.

Sister Schubert's® Chicken Pot Pie with Bread Topping

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2011
OK, this was delicious! I, too, used ground mustard and added 1/2 tsp. of marjoram. I also went with the puffed pastry crust. This could work with any type of crust. The filling is SO rich and tasty! My boys wanted me to make it for their birthday dinners!

Suzy's Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
This is how I always make my mashed potatoes amd it's always great. I love reading other's changes when they make a review, in fact I usually will incorporate one or two of them, if it sounds good to me. It's one of the joys of cooking!

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2005
I would rate this with 6 stars if I could. Everyone thought this was the best they have ever had, including myself. I used bakery white and wheat bread, cubed it, and let it dry out on sheets overnight. I used about 3 cups of broth and it was perfect. Next time I will cut down the salt to 1/2-1 tsp., per my preference. Just a fabulous, easy recipe that I will most certainly be making again!

Brie Cheese Appetizer

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2003
I have had this recipe for awhile and was very dissappointed in it. It might be my fault- I took the suggestion of other reviews and used crescent dough and made individual appetizers. That is all I changed but it still didn't turn out as I expected. It was salty and more bitter than I wanted. I think mine needed more preserves. However, it gave me other ideas. Rolling the crescent dough with just the preserves (of any flavor) would be great I think. All in all, it needs some changes but was a good idea.

Baked Oatmeal I

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2003
This was very good, but I gave it four stars because I thought it could use some improvements: first I would add some brown sugar to the oatmeal mixture as well as on top, and maybe reduce the white sugar; and I baked mine for 35 minutes, but it only really needed 30, maybe less; I would also put cinnamon in the oatmeal mixture as well, and possibly try other spices. Overall it was really good, and I will definitely make again.

Asian Chicken Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2002
This was an awesome salad recipe! I used prepared salad lettuce (to make it easier) and it was great. Loved the blend of flavors and the dressing is great on lots of other salads, etc. Definitely a keeper.
