Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
This is awesome! I used both spice packets and light beer. I put it all in a crock pot, set it on low, 10-hours later it was perfectly done. My 4-year-old couldn't keep her hands off the meat!

BUSH'S® Best Black Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
I make this with the Mild Rotel and chopped sweet bell peppers (red, yellow and/or green)instead of the jalapeno so my child can enjoy the salsa. We really enjoy this with homemade baked tortilla chips (recipe on this site). I serve this as an appetizer before dinner so we get our beans in each week. It really deserves 10 stars-the taste is amazing!

Beefy Chinese Dumplings

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
I made this with ground chicken, pre-packaged "Angel Hair" slaw, and omitted the egg. I also replaced the wonton wrappers with gyoza wrappers (egg free) and deep fried them. I couldn't cook them fast enough for my family. My child who has an egg allergy was able to enjoy them as well with my modifications. This does make a lot of filling and there are a lot of wrappers per pack, so we have enough to make another batch to freeze or steam, but the deep fried version, albeit not so healthy, were super tasty!

Mini Pineapple Upside-Down Cakes

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
These are AWESOME! Very easy to make. I used Duncan Hines Pineapple Supreme cake mix. I used 1 1/3 c. water (not the reserved juice) as stated on the box, not the recipe here. I used pineapple rings and just cut out a notch to make them fit. They look fine. I used my Pampered Chef stoneware muffin pan generously sprayed with Pam. I inverted the cakes onto a parchment lined wooden cutting board immediately after baking. I had no problem with sticking. Just had to jiggle the pan a little. I had some cake batter left over and some pieces of pineapple, so I made a new batch of brown sugar and butter (the BEST invention on Earth!) and assembled an additional cake in a glass pie plate. These little cakes are perfect for bake sales, showers or when serving guests in your home. I'm going to see how they freeze cuz I'd like to pull one out of the freezer now and then as a tea-time treat. Yummy!!!

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
I've made this twice now and we can't get enough of it! The 1st time I made it I followed the suggestions of others on the salt/spices and used Greek yogurt in place of the cream. It was really good! This time, however, I decided to use the heavy cream and ~OH MY~ it is heaven on Earth. Do yourself a favor and make the full-fat version at least once. You will not regret it. We like spicy food but I did cut the amount of the peppers by half so my 4 yr. old could eat it. She LOVES it! I saute or grill a combo of chunky-cut green peppers, onions, potatoes and tomatoes to serve on the side. This time my hubby wasn't around so I had to broil the chicken (I can't BBQ!). I put about 3 lbs. of legs & thighs, skin on with bones, on a broiling pan. I baked them 1st at 400 degrees for 35 min. then turned the broiler on HI and broiled each side until really brown and crispy. The rack was set at the middle position about 10" from broiler. Amazing! The chicken was so wonderful that I served the sauce (which I doubled) on the side but will put the chicken and veggies in with the sauce from now on. Could drink the sauce from a cup! My daughter wanted to dunk everything in the sauce! Thanks for the recipe!

Oh My Gosh Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
Very easy & yummy! I did make a few small changes. I used 1 c. sugar and 3 bananas. I also subbed fresh blueberries for the chocolate. I baked them in a mini-muffin pan and it made 24 exactly (filled 3/4 full). I don't like giving my 4 yr. old an adult size muffin and she doesn't like it when I cut one in half. Giving her a mini-muffin is perfect. They had the right amount of sweetness. The banana/blueberry combo is great! I will make with banana/choco combo a later time, maybe with some coconut sprinkled in. Yum!

Fresh Fig Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
Not sure what I did differently, but mine were not cakey at all. In fact, they were very thin yet moist and chewy. I did add a half cup of choco chips and a half cup of raisins and subbed cinnamon for the cloves. Other than that all the ingredients were the same. They taste really great and my friend's uber-picky child loved them. Great way to sneak some nutritional value into a cookie via the figs.

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
These are AWESOME! Following others' suggestions, I held the dry spring roll wrapper under the tap for a second each side and worked on a wet dish cloth to assemble. You can use practically any salad-type filling for these. In fact, I think we will use salad dressing for our dipping sauces next time. Did not care for the fish sauce. The hoisin was good. I also used Trader Joe's Sweet Chili Sauce which was very good on these. I am going to make these fresh on some mornings to put in my pre-schooler's lunch box. She loved them!

Spanakopita II

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
These are restaurant-quality or better. Worth the effort. I read all the reviews and incorporated a lot of the tips given that I thought would work well for me in regard to the rolling and the flavor. I did the 1-sheet, fold-in-half, then fold into flags technique and I also did the egg-roll style with 1-sheet. I used butter flavored Pam spray. I also used only 2 eggs, added a bit of garlic, lemon juice and nutmeg. The filling just needs to be tweaked to your liking. That said.....LOVED THEM!!!!!

Apple Crisp IV

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
This was the best crisp I've ever had and I've had many. I've made 2 so far and have gotten raves both times. The bottom crust is a great idea. I did read the reviews and incorporated a few tweeks. I did not peel my apples (used a dozen Fuji). I diced them into medium sized cubes and sprinkled about 2 t. lemon juice, a good dash of cinnamon, and 1 t. pure vanilla extract on them and let them sit while I mixed the crust ingredients. I also decreased the flour to 1 1/2 cups and used 1/4 t. nutmeg and 1/4 t. pumpkin pie spice in place of the full amount of nutmeg. After pressing half of the crust into the pan, I poured all the apples and any juices that were created and then topped with remaining crust. Baked until golden brown. It was perfect!

Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
I made this with chocolate pudding. My husband accidentally bought the cook & serve type. They were awesome with semisweet choco chips! Just don't over-bake them.

French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
It's Christmas morning and I made this with some leftover Pannetone (that round Italian holiday bread). I used half a round of Pannetone and the measurements listed here, using slightly more vanilla. I sprinkled brown sugar and chopped walnuts on top. After pouring the egg mixture onto the bread cubes, I let it sit for 15 minutes. Then I stirred the bread cubes thoroughly to saturate evenly with the egg mix. I baked in a 12 3/4 in x 10 3/8 in. disposable aluminum pan covered with foil for the first 30 minutes. I then took the foil off for 14 minutes. It looked set, so I took it out and covered with foil until ready to serve. It was perfect!

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
I boiled the seeds the night before and let them dry out on a cookie sheet. These really tasted wonderful. Would like to try the garlic/butter and cinnamon/sugar options next time!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
I made batch after batch of these cookies this holiday season and everyone raved about them. I refrigerated the dough overnight and rolled 1/8 c. balls out and placed them about 3 inches apart. I could only get 6 to a cookie sheet. I took them out when they only got slightly brown around the edges. They were better than the cookies you get in the mall and they were really big! LOVED them. This is my all-time favorite chocolate chip cookie .

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
I am a total novice at using this type of icing. It was super easy to make. Just add drops of milk until you get the consistency you like. I used gel coloring and the colors are outstanding and the icing didn't get thinned by it. I dipped some cookies and used a small paint brush to ice others. I used vanilla instead of almond extract. The icing is perfectly sweet and tastes awesome. I hope to get brave enough to do some piping with it soon. Thanks for the great recipe!

Easy Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
Enjoying these right now. These are the best biscuits ever! I used butter instead of shortening, whole milk, a tsp. of baking powder and 1/2 tsp of baking soda and a dash of salt. I placed the biscuits so they were touching sides, brushed with milk. They are perfect for egg sandwiches or just butter and jam. Thanks for an awesome recipe! My husband commented that if we add some garlic, herbs and cheddar and brush the top with garlic butter, these would be identical to Red Lobster's biscuits! He's right!!!

Cheese-Stuffed Jalapenos

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
I used those colorful little sweet peppers that are all the rage right now instead of jalapenos. I also wrapped the entire peppers with bacon (as in mummy-style). I baked at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes, then put the broiler on to crisp them. They were AWESOME! Sorry to change up the original recipe so much. I didn't change the filling at all. That's what makes this recipe so good. The addition of the Worcestershire and cheddar make this version so much better than the rest. Edit 7/2010: I now add a teaspoon of Hidden Valley Ranch dry dressing mix. It really makes the filling flavor pop!

Yummy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: May 19, 2010
This is really awesome tasting and easy to make. I put all the ingredients in a bowl and my 5-yr-old mixed it up. She tasted it and dubbed herself an "amazing chef!" This would make a great dressing for a Fried Chicken Salad. Yum!
