Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
These were a hit at my kids' preschool class for snack. The only changes I made were: used regular white flour (no whole wheat), and also used 4 eggs total (no egg substitue). They did stick a little on our muffin/ cupcake liners. The kids devoured them- had 2 each & were begging for more!

Slow Cooker Sweet and Tangy Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
Very easy & tasty. I love the combination of the spicy bbq & sweet pineapple. I halved the recipe, using only 2 whole breasts. I also sliced & added one carrot. Mine was well done after about 5 hrs on low in the crockpot.

Fast Beef and Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2010
Very fast, very easy and very economical. Not gourmet, but great for a busy weeknight dinner. Add a side of veggies, and you have a meal for about $5. Thanks for sharing!

Eggplant Supper Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
So good! Made as written with the exception of using about 4 cups of water & 5 bouillon cubes instead of canned broth. Also made w/out noodles. Exceptional recipe!

Pancakes I

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
These had a good flavor, but the batter was really really thin & runny- as a result, pancakes were thin. Kids still liked them. I prefer Good Old Fashioned Pancake recipe from this site.

Polvorones de Canele (Cinnamon Cookies)

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
I made these for a Cindo de mayo get together & while they weren't a hit (too much other food to choose from), they did have a really good flavor. My only complaint is that they crumbled easily. I got almost 3 dozen small cookies out of this recipe.

Zesty Porcupine Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
I thought these had good flavor; I tried to cut the recipe in half (only had 1/2 lb of ground beef & 1 can tomato soup in the house); for some reason, my meatballs fell apart, so it was more like meat sauce. I made extra rice & served it over that.

Sweet and Sour Chicken III

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2010
Thought this was yummy! I followed some other suggestions & added about 3/4 of a 20 oz can of pineapple w/ juice, kept soy sauce the same & doubled cornstarch, vinegar & brown sugar. Also added about 2 T ketchup. Used garlic powder instead of fresh. Used 1 green pepper & 1 med. onion & about 1 C matchstick carrots. Very good!

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
Thought this was really rich & had a good flavor. I made the following changes: used about 3/4 C of both sour cream & cottage cheese; added a squirt (maybe 1 t) mustard; added a splash (maybe 1/4 - 1/2 C) milk; used a mix of shredded sharp & mild cheddar & a bit of pepper jack; also used just about 2 T melted butter & about 1/4 C breadcrumbs over top. Thought this was a good change from the ordinary & a good meatless meal when paired w/ a salad or veggie.

Tuna Fish Cakes

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
These had good flavor- something else interesting to do with canned tuna. However, I mixed as directed & refrigerated for 1 hr prior to cooking & these cakes still fell apart. Plus, I think the serving size might be off; this made a huge batch of cakes/ patties- I got 9 large patties out of this recipe (though it says it serves 4). Not sure I'll be making this again with tuna. But I bet the concept would be really good w/ diced leftover cooked turkey.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
Awesome! I made this for a game night & it was a hit. Instead of canned chicken, I roasted one large split breast & used the meat from that. I also added a bit more ranch & Franks Hot Sauce (maybe 2-3 T more each). I also added a little chili powder- about 1 teaspoon. Served it with celery sticks, carrot sticks & tortilla chips. After heating everything together in the skillet, I transferred to a crockpot & kept it on warm... no problems. Will definitely make again for New Years Eve get together.

Magic Cookie Bars from EAGLE BRAND®

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
Excellent & very very easy. They were a hit for two Christmas get togethers this year. The only thing I would say, like others have, is 1) grease the baking pan really well (I used a really good coating of butter flavored spray) & 2) let these cool down all the way! Even if they're a bit warm, they have a tendency to fall apart when trying to cut/ get them out of the pan. Great recipe!

Nutty Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
I had lost my go to recipe for apple crisp that a friend gave me & thought this one mostly resembled what I remembered about my lost recipe... this one had a good flavor- but seems to have too much butter/ brown sugar or maybe not enough oats & flour. I did double the recipe for a Christmas gathering, so I don't know if that was part of the problem. The topping, for me, spread out a lot & seem to overwhelm the apples. Like I said, an okay flavor, but maybe adding less butter & sugar and a little more oats/ flour would make it better.

Yummy Tater Tot Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
I thought this was pretty good- it seems like another variation on the hashbrown casserole recipes out there. I doubled the recipe (to give half to a friend w/ a new baby); the only changes I made were that I used 1 C melted butter & 1 chopped sauteed onion for the whole doubled recipe. I also used less cheese- probably about 1 C for the whole thing. All in all, it turned out pretty good- very filling. I think this would be good as a main dish w/ cooked chicken & veggies added in, or even cooked groud beef. Also would be good at breakfast maybe w/ added sausage or ham.

Ham 'N' Cheese Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2009
I thought this was really good! I cut the recipe in half, and added about 1/2 C frozen peas w/ the ham, onions & cheese. Leftovers were awesome for next day's lunch. I think this would be good w/ any added veggies & just about any meat. What a great recipe!
