Spanish Rice Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2012
I was looking for a new Spanish rice recipe and this one was very yummy! Like most people, I made changes based on what I had. I used one can of diced tomatoes and one can diced tomatoes with green chilies. I only used 1/4 cup of chili sauce since I knew the green chilies would add spice. Rice and I don't get along, so I always use instant! I cooked it ahead of time and added it in after I let the veggies and beef simmer. Oh, I also stirred in about a 1/4 cup of lite cream cheese before I put it in the baking dish and then topped it with a little lite sour cream when I served it. My 2 yr old ate it, if that tells you anything! Thanks for this easy and yummy recipe!

Fresh Strawberry Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
This sauce is amazing!! I couldn't stop tasting it! I didn't have fresh strawberries, so I thawed 2 cups of frozen strawberries and it turned out perfect. I also omitted the 2 Tbsps of water since the frozen strawberries created enough juice once they thawed. Now, I wish my cheesecake had turned out just as a great, but it was my first time to bake one. I think I will try Chef John's recipe next time! :) Thanks for a super easy and yummy sauce recipe!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
Yummo!! Donate the canned sloppy joe's mix and make this! This was fast, easy and delicious! Reminded me of dinner as a kid. The only changes I made was used ground turkey, fresh minced garlic and add some worchestshire sauce. I did double the sauce because I like it really sloppy! Thank you for a wonderful recipe.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2012
This was my first time to make carrot cake so I wanted to try this recipe because of all the rave reviews. it turned out pretty good. I omitted the walnuts and raisins. I made them into cupcakes and it made 26 and they only needed to cook for 20 mins. The problem was because it is such a moist cake, a lot of it got stuck the paper cups. I think I am going to try a couple more recipes though to find that true southern carrot cake I remember as a kid.

Sausage, Peppers, Onions, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2012
This was alright. I don't really understand all the rave reviews. I used italian turkey sausage and only chicken stock in place of the wine because I didn't have any. I had to bake it about 35 mins because the potatoes were still hard and that caused the peppers to become really mushy and the sausage kind of dry. Maybe the potatoes should not be "thickly sliced". It was pretty easy and tasted ok. Not the best thing I have ever made, but I would make it again in a pinch since it doesn't require a lot of ingredients or work.

Super-Simple, Super-Spicy Mongolian Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2012
Hello, this truly is super easy and super yummy!! We love spice, but just incase, I took the advise of the other reviewers and decreased the pepper flakes to about a tsp. Next time, I will add a bit more. I also didn't have green onions, so I sauteed some red bell peppers & some water chestnuts. I didn't have peanut oil either, so I just used olive oil. Wow, thanks for this recipe and for giving me the confidence to cook with steak! I can't wait to make this again!!

Irish Cream Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
I gave this 1 star, not because they tasted bad, but because it doesn't deliver the Irish creme flavor at all. I made my own brownies that everyone loves instead of a box mix, but added the Irish creme liquor. Then made the frosting exactly as you are supposed to, but just tasted like regular buttercream. I even added extra Irish creme, but still nothing. I won't be trying these again.

Mini Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
Yummo!!! I made these last night and they are almost gone! I only substituted applesauce for the butter, egg beaters for the eggs & used half all purpose flour with half wheat flour. I did make regular size muffins instead. I made half of them with butterscotch chips for my husband and half with raisins for my daughter. The ones with butterscotch chips were amazing!!! I can't wait to make these again! Thanks Megan for an awesome recipe!

Pizza Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
This is super yummy and easy!! The only changes I made were ground chicken instead of beef, whole wheat rotini pasta and a jar of tomato basil spaghetti sauce. I also added chopped black olives to the mix. Grated some parmesan and sprinkled a little italian seasoning on top of the mozzarella . Yummo!! I am sure you could add any veggies to it that you would normally eat on a pizza. Thanks for a hearty and easy recipe!

Chicken with Herb Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
I made this last night and won't make it again. I didn't have the fresh herbs, so I used dried like others suggested. It didn't have much flavor except for a weird tang. I kept trying to add more herbs, but nothing. It was really runny, so I did add some flour to thicken it.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
I've made these brownies a few times, but had not made them in awhile. I just baked a batch and yummo!! I forgot how delicious these are! I always cut the recipe in half, bake them in an 8X8 dish, use margarine instead of butter, egg substitute and white chocolate chips. They always turn out amazing and I don't feel as guilty eating more than 1 because I cut out some of the fat! ;) I also suggest just hand mixing, so the batter doesn't get over mixed. Best brownies ever! Everyone must try these!

Honey-Dijon Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
I gave this 5 stars because although it is not the best chicken I have ever had, it was tasty & SUPER easy! It went really well with rice. I did double the sauce as suggested by other reviews. Delicious and I will certainly make it again!

Old-Fashioned Cheese Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
Mmmm! These were delicious and super easy! I made them exactly as the recipe says, but used light margarine and skim milk to make them a little healthier. I do agree with some other reviews that you might want to add more salt. I don't even like American cheese, but had some on hand because my husband loves all cheeses. I couldn't stop "tasting" them once they came out of the oven! Thank you for this recipe!

Quick and Easy Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
I give this 3 stars only because it was good, but just tastes like BBQ chicken. I only made 2 breasts, but still doubled the sauce since many reviewers said too. I still think you need more. Also be careful if you add the sauce to the pan after cooking the chicken. I let my pan cool for a few minutes and it still burned to the bottom. I ended up just finishing the chicken with the sauce in the oven. Overall though, it was alright. I would make it again in pinch since it is easy and doesn't require many ingredients.

Waistline-Friendly Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
I didn't have some key ingredients to make our usual chili, so I tried this one. I put it in the crockpot and the only thing I did differently was omit the chili flakes because many reviews stated it was too spicy. I didn't think it was spicy at all, so I ended up adding in the chili flakes after tasting it. I thought it was pretty bland and also too sweet! My husband will eat it because he will eat almost anything, but I won't be making this again.**I changed my rating from a 2 to a 1. My husband heated up a bowl when he got home and eventhough I said he will eat almost anything, he couldn't even eat the bowl he made. He thought it was way too sweet and I ended up dumping the rest!

Roasted New Red Potatoes

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
These were super easy!! I will be making these again and again because they are perfect as a side dish for anything. I did leave them in for the full 30 mins. Delicious!

Strawberry/Rhubarb Crumb Pie

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
I took the advice of everyone and added cornstarch. I added 2 tsps. Thought this was very yummy! My crust was soggy in the center though, so next time I will par bake it for about 5 mins to prevent the juices from soaking in.

Slow-Cooked German Short Ribs

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
I give this stars because the flavor is really yummy, but it reminded us why we don't make beef ribs...they are a lot of work for little meat. That was the only problem with this recipe. There was so much fat in the pot and not much meat! I cooled the sauce and scooped out as much fat as I could before adding the flour. Again, great flavor so we are going to try this again, but with a roast instead.

Easy Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
This actually turned out pretty good, but I did make a few changes. First of all, I cut the recipe in half because it was only for 2 of us. I used ground turkey, reduced fat sour cream and chicken stock because that is what I had. I also added diced bell peppers and some paprika. I felt it needed more sour cream because it was still a little thin, so I added in about another 1/4 cup. I will definitely make this again because it was yummy, easy, cheap and very filling!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2010
Absolutely delicious! This was my first time to make zucchini bread and this was easy and yummy. I used egg sub and applesauce instead of eggs and oil, just to cut out the fat. Great recipe! Thanks! ***I've been making this all summer because of my full garden & it is still my favorite!! I have made some additional changes that I think have made this bread even better. I use less sugar because replacing the oil with applesauce adds natural sweetness. I use 3/4 cup white sugar & 3/4 cup brown sugar. I also sub 1 cup of wheat flour for the white. Don't drain the zucchini completely before adding it in the mix. The natural juice makes it really moist!
