Strawberry Sauza®-Rita

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
I've been using another recipe on here for awhile to make frozen strawberry margaritas, but this is very good for over the rocks. I think I might even try blending up some fresh strawberries next time to give it some pulp.

Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
This was a very easy recipe with a great taste! We did as another reviewer suggested and used the honey mustard instead of making it ourselves. When I make this again, though, I plan not to chop the pecans up as small to give even more texture (put the pecans in the blender and they were the same consistency as the breadcrumbs)

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2013
This was great, next time I will try the recommendation to put a little water in the dish while it bakes in the oven to help soften the spaghetti squash up. Honestly the hardest parts were cutting the squash in half (it was harder than it looked! don't know if I got an extra firm one or what) and it was a little tedious to pick the seeds out after it cooked, mostly because the topping part was ready so I was ready to start eating! I will make this again, it's very healthy and I felt just as satisfied had I ate regular spaghetti. I also didn't add oil to the topping to save extra calories. Also, I felt like the recipe really made more like 4 servings.

Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
I thought these were excellent. I did what others suggested and added about 2 tbsp of veggie oil. My boyfriend and I made giant monster cookies (we came out with about 20 of them from the batter) and left them in for 9 minutes, then let them cool on the sheet and they turned out perfect. Nice and soft, but not so soft that they fall apart before they reach your mouth. This was so easy, I'll definitely make it again, and may even try other cake mixes.

World's Best Lasagna

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
DELICIOUS! Will not be buying applesauce from the store again. I doubled the cinnamon and used a little less sugar (somewhere between 1/8 cup and 1/4 cup) since I like my applesauce a little more tart, turned out GREAT. This is so rich and delicious, I was thinking to myself it would make an excellent pie or dessert filling, with a scoop of ice cream on top. Of course it is great as it, we will definitely make this again and again as a lite dessert.

Baked Zucchini Chips

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
I actually really liked these, even though I must admit I did not cook them until they were fully crispy/chip like. I tried to cut them as thin as possible, and followed another reviewer's suggestion of doubling the parm and adding garlic powder. Served these hot, cracked some fresh salt on top, with a side of pasta sauce (was out of salsa, but that would have been the lower cal option). I also opted for egg whites (eggbeaters) instead of using eggs with the yolks to cut back on fat content. They went fast, I think mostly because I couldn't stop eating them. I will make more next time. Thanks for sharing!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
I enjoyed this a lot. I made it as the recipe indicated and served it for a large party. It went fast, nobody was able to get seconds. I might play around with different cuts of meat. Will be making this again and again.

Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2010
It was pretty good, reduced the butter to 3tbs as suggested, and agreed it was still too much. I guess I fantasized that the butter would be absorbed, as I put in on top of the potatoes before I put them in the oven, but actually it all went to the bottom. I used the species as directed but sprinkled everything once over with seasoning salt, too. Also, I put the ranch dressing on before I put it in the oven, and that was absorbed. I will def make this again!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
5 Stars all the way!! Followed the recipe exactly, used a local favorite bbq sauce and was not disappointed! The meat was tender and falling apart after being in the slow cooker on high for four hours. We will be making this again and again. Thanks so much!

The Best Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
I've tried several mashed potato recipes from this website, but this is the first one like what I've been looking for! These are dense, rich, creamy mashed potatoes like the ones I enjoy at nice restaurants. They are definitely not the healthiest, which is why I cannot make them very often. My boyfriend also agrees that they're excellent :)

Broccoli Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
Excellent! I followed the advice of other reviewers as well as my own inclinations. I pretty much doubled the recipe, but disproportionately increased the amount of broccoli and chicken because I knew we wanted a more hearty dish. I also used plain Greek yogurt instead of skim milk to add some depth/flavor as well as increase the protein content (zero fat). I omit the butter altogether because I did not find it necessary. As others suggested, I added some seasoning to the chicken (I boiled it and sprinkled some Cookie's brand seasoning on after I drained the chicken). I used rice a roni wild grain rice pilaf on the bottom, and assembled it as instructed. I also added some Parmesan cheese to the top (and mixed cheddar both in with the soup as well as on top as suggested). In addition to seasoned Italian bread crumbs, I crunched up some whole wheat saltines in a bag to give the topping a little more crunch. We enjoyed every bite and will definitely make this again!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
EXCELLENT. I used this to season tacos that I served to my boyfriend and he was practically inhaling them. I will definitely use this again. It's so flavorful, but not overpowering, tasted authentic, I can't say anything bad about it.

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2010
Made exactly as the recipe stated and it delivered! My boyfriend fired up the grill with some juicy fillets and they came off PERFECT, like I would expect from an expensive restaurant. Will not need to waste money on mediocre steaks when dining out anymore when we can just whip this up.

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
This is a great recipe. We already knew we weren't going to want it super spicy, so we only used the chopped green chile peppers. Also, we used a variety of beans and added corn as well. It turned out really hearty and we will definitely use this recipe again in the future.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
The crust turned out great - exactly as stated (soft on the inside, chewy on the outside). I didn't think the amount it made was "giant," it made a large pizza exactly, which made me wish I did not listen to the reviewer who said it easily makes two pizza crusts, because I prepared toppings for two pizzas and was only able to make one of them. Otherwise, it turned out great and I will enjoy making this again!

Brussels Sprouts in a Sherry Bacon Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
I'm rating this recipe 5 stars with modifications, so take it as you'd like. First of all, I had a bag of brussels sprouts I needed to use up and was hoping to make something healthy. Although this recipe had lots of great reviews, I did not want to use cream or even half and half as some reviewers suggested, so I instead substituted in skim milk. Both my boyfriend and I agreed that this recipe came out delicious. I also left the mushrooms out (personal preference) and used regular onion instead of shallots since that's what we had on hand. I think that we'll be making this again, an excellent way to cook this veggie.

Ultimate Frozen Strawberry Margarita

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
We LOVED this! I have a pretty large blender, so when it says to fill a blender with ice, I think we had to increase the other ingredients accordingly. We ended up using the same amount of tequila and triple sec, but increased the strawberries to 16oz and the limeade concentrate to 6oz. This is just like the strawberry margaritas at our favorite Mexican restaurant in town, we will definitely be making this again and again!!!
