Mama's Asian Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2011
Fantastic recipe! I took another's reviewer's suggestion and used cayenne instead of chinese five spice. I didn't have any on hand and hate buying spices I'll rarely use. It was the perfect amount of heat and sweetness from the orange. Next time though, I won't cook the chicken for long before adding the sauce. It definitely doesn't need that if it's going to cook for 30 more minutes. It made plenty of sauce for me, but you could definitely double it if you prefer a lot. I used all but about a tsp of the slurry. I threw in fresh chopped broccoli for the last few minutes and served it over brown rice. Delicious!

Easy Pleasy Mac N Cheesy - US Navy Style

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
I love this recipe! It was so much easier to make than the usual mac & cheese with making the roux and all of that. I followed it exactly, but melted then velveeta and mixed all ingredients in a bowl, then added cooked pasta. I had a bad experience in the past where the cubed velveeta didn't melt all the way, and it wasn't good. It was super rich & creamy and I don't think it will be dry for leftovers like a lot of mac & cheese gets. Will definitely make again!

Cake with Buttercream Decorating Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
This recipe was just what I needed! It was SUPER easy to make. I, too, was shocked at how much sugar it called for but I used all of it. And I have to admit that I usually HATE making icing due to the huge mess that ensues while measuring out powdered sugar. It was great to just buy bags by the pound and pour them in as it mixed with no measuring mess. Easy to make & perfect for decorating. I had no issues with it being too soft. If any icing sits out too long, it will eventually start to get soft. I just popped it back into the fridge for a few min. as needed. Super sweet - perfect for a kid's birthday cake. I'll definitely be using this again!

Easy Mexican Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
I am a HUGE fan of Nestle's Abuelita hot chocolate, but it's only sold at certain stores in my area so I was excited when I saw this recipe. I followed another reviewers suggestion and used cocoa instead of the instant hot cocoa. I used dark chocolate cocoa, actually. It came out very bitter (which I expected), so I ended up adding just another squirt of chocolate syrup and some sugar until it tasted right. Then it was AWESOME. Also, as far as the dry ingredients not dissolving.. I mixed up the dry first, added the boiling water to it, added the milk, and then stirred in the chocolate syrup. Everything dissolved perfectly.

Dark Chocolate Bacon Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
WOW. I followed another reviewer's suggestion and used the Rich Chocolate Frosting recipe on the site.. AMAZING. The cupcakes came out so moist and delicious.. and the RICH chocolate icing with the salty crunch on top.. awesome combination. Even if you're not a fan of bacon, I'm sure these cupcakes would be FANTASTIC without the bacon. So worth your time!

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
This icing is INCREDIBLE. If you love chocolate, you'll be in heaven. The only problem I had with it wasn't because of the recipe.. I have a standard size KitchenAid and the recipe turned out to be a bit much for it. When I had about 2 cups of the cocoa/sugar mixture left to add in, I had to transfer it to a bowl and mix it in myself. This makes A LOT of icing. I used it to generously ice 26 cupcakes and I have a lot left. I'm going to make a 9x13 cake to finish it off, because it's WAY too good to go to waste! Very rich and chocolatey.

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
I'm a huge fan of just about anything chocolate peanut butter, but these have to be some of the BEST cookies I've ever made. The peanut butter filling is so delicious and melted in the middle - even the next day, which I was afraid it wouldn't be. They took a little more time because of rolling the balls and then wrapping the dough around them, but it's well worth it. Also, I don't know if I made them much smaller but I got about 45 cookies out of the recipe.

Pesto Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
I thought this recipe sounded great, but I'm only a fan of feta cheese in certain things. I make this recipe all the time now with a few alterations. I don't use seasoned salt - I season the mix with salt and pepper. I do everything else the same except the feta cheese. I buy garlic and herb boursin cheese and put half of the small wheel into the turkey burger mix. I don't have a grill, so I brown them in a pan and then finish them in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes. At the end, I place the remaining boursin on top of the burgers and put them back in to melt. I mix a little pesto with mayonnaise to put on the rolls, and there you have it.. probably the best turkey burgers I've ever had.

Low-Fat Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
Absolutely delicious! It tastes so thick and rich and creamy and BAD for you, you would never know it was low-fat! Even my boyfriend who hates any potato that isn't fried LOVED it. I would double the recipe next time.. it doesn't make a whole lot.

Easy Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
I used this as a basis for the gravy.. I had buttermilk to use up, so I made biscuits from scratch and I also had 2 large country sausage links already cooked up in the fridge. I diced them up and heat them in the pan, sprinkled them evenly with flour (no measuring) and then added milk until it was the consistency I wanted. Seasoned with salt and pepper to my liking, and there you go.. super quick, delicious meal!

Chunky and Creamy Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
This was a great new take on potato salad! There's so many different flavors going on throughout it. I followed the recipe exactly, except for the dill. I find it very overwhelming and was worried it would be too much, so I only used half the amount and you could definitely taste it but it wasn't too much. Also I used the bigger yellow potatoes, because they were cheaper, and just quartered them before boiling them.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
I give this 5 stars, because it was absolutely delicious and super easy to make. I also split the squash in half, scooped out the seeds, and roasted the pieces at 350 until tender (about 35 minutes since I used 2 smaller squash). Once that was finished and scooped out of the skins, it took barely any time to put the soup together. I added a little more than 1/8 tsp of cayenne, thinking it wouldn't make a huge difference and I love cayenne pepper.. but it was quite spicy. I still found it enjoyable, but next time I think I'll stick to the recipe on that one for the sake of others eating it.

Tarragon Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
An easy, delicious dish! My mom used to make this all the time. I got hungry for it and searched this site for it.. made it for the first time myself tonight. Incredibly easy to put together, very quick and inexpensive. It tastes great reheated too!

Simple Sweet and Spicy Chicken Wraps

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
I thought this was a good base but I will probably make some alterations if I make it again. The honey wasn't very noticeable. I think I may add a little more in the future. Also, I think it would be better with sour cream as a base for the sauce. That's just my preference. It was good, as is, but I think the coolness of the sour cream would be great to balance out all the cayenne. This recipe has a lot of versatility.. the meat mixture would be a great switch from your usual taco meat or to throw on top of a salad.

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
This was delicious and very easy to make. I don't care for tomatoes much, so I only used half the amount. I also used goat cheese instead of feta - it was perfect! This would even be great in a simpler version with just the onions, garlic, basil, and cheese.. will definitely make again!

Cream of Broccoli Soup III

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
The soup itself tasted very good and it was VERY easy to make, but it didn't get quite as thick as I would have liked.. even after added some shredded cheese and a cornstarch slurry.
