Creole Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2013
This was really GOOD! Even the boyfriend said multiple times how yummy it was,which is unusual. Read the reviews thoroughly, used chicken stock instead of plain water, no salt just creole seasoning. It did only take 2 hours,not four but our beans weren't very old either. Will definitely make again, especially when the budget is tight. I think I spent $8 on all the ingredients,and will get at least 6 servings.

Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2012
This was wonderful. The best thing about it is that it's so easy to put together, with things most people have on hand. The oj make just the right amount of secret flavor. I did only use 1/2 cup of oil and it was a little dense. but if you want a homemade tasting cake,definatly try this one.

Chocolate Cream Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
This is chilling in the fridge right now. I didn't have enough chocolate squares so I used regular cocoa powder with some oil (3tbsp per 1 tbsp of oil)I doubled this so that I had the same amount called for in the recipe. It turned out amazing. Tastes like chocolate brownie pudding. Very very chocolaty. I think the cocoa powder may have made it stronger. I think you could do this with any chocolate chip flavor too, just cut down on the sugar or cut it out. Definitely a keeper for us.

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2012
This is a great recipe. I doubled it because I had a pound of italian sausage I needed to use. And I used fresh garlic, just my preference. These were really easy to make and with doubling the recipe I ended up with 72 meatballs. cooked 24, shaped and froze the rest on a cookie sheet then when frozen put them in a plastic bag. Will never buy premade meatballs again.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
Was very nervous about cooking the roast this way but I always over cook roasts in the oven so I thought I would give it a shot. This will be the only way I cook a roast in the oven from now on. Turned out great!! Nice and pinky-red in the middle, just the way we like it.

Homemade Crispy Seasoned French Fries

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
This recipe was really good!! I have had trouble before getting that really crispy fry with out par cooking or frying and then doing it again but this batter did the trick. The first couple of pieces I put in I was a little nervous because they take a few minutes to brown but they turned out great. I used a large electric skillet so I could more closely monitor the heat and had mine turned on 400 degreees. Next time I think I will try doing them in the over. Healthier and because my ventilation is poor in our apartment it did make the house smell of oil for a day or so.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
If I could I would give it a 4 for flavor and a five for being so easy, but I can fix the flavor- more garlic more garlic. Really this was a great alfredo. I had my concerns when I mixed the cream cheese with the butter, it did not look like it was going to come together but you just have to keep stirring and give the cream cheese time to soften and melt. I used this for some ravioli with a big salad and crusty bread and it was great. It did make alot though and I had enough to use later in the week with macaroni, left over chicken and broccoli. Big hit with my 2 1/2 year old.

Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
Great salad and style I had never made before. I only put 1/2c. of sugar in and thought it was plenty sweet. Every one loved it. Will definatly be making it several times over the summer. The amount of salad was nice since there was only 4 of us for Easter, not so much leftover you get sick of eating it but would definalty double it to take to a larger gathering or barbque.

Denise's Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
We really enjoyed this dish. I did as others suggested and used 1/2 cup of chunky peanut butter instead of the roasted peanuts since that is what I had on hand. I also doubled the sauce recipe so that there was enough sauce for the rice. I had never used wok oil before and really enjoyed the added flavor, had always just used what ever oil I had handy.

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
These were wonderful gifts!! I made some of the finished cookies before hand and they were terrible! Dry and crumbly, but then I realized I had forgotten the white sugar. Made all the difference. Great tasting cookies. I took a tip from another post and layered the white sugar at the bottom and then white chips, then cranberries and then brown sugar, flour and oats. That way when you cover the top you can still see all the festive colors. I used old christmas card and glued the instructions to the back of the pictures. Made beautiful tags and didn't have to buy cardstock.

Italian Country Style Ribs

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2010
For an easy, throw together dish, this was excellent. Especially when BBQ just doesnt sound good and you get the meat on a great sale. We just boiled some rigatonie and used the sauce on the meat and the pasta. Even my super picky 2 year old ate his whole plate and then more the next day. I didn't even change it like I usually do. The only thing I did differently was I had the 26oz cans of Hunts spag. sauce on hand and not two of the same flavor so I ended up using 1 whole cand or the spicy and zesty and a half can of garlic herb. I found that the next day I had the left over sauce to put over the pasta wich was kinda dry after being in the fridge.

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2013
This will be my go to Chocolate frosting. I doubled the recipe because I was making my son a pirate ship cake and didn't want to run out. I ended up with just under two cups left over which was fine with us. By the way, if you do have leftovers, if you warm it up it makes an amazing hot fudge sauce for ice cream. Definatly spent a couple of nights eating cake scraps from carving a pirate ship with warmed up frosting and ice cream

Apple Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
I was really suprised by this recipe, it sounds kinda strange but came out really good. I had some apples that I needed to use up and didn't want to make a dessert or anything sweet, this was great. I didn't have any fresh tomatos on hand so I just drained some canned diced tomatoes and only had chedder cheese at home. It worked out well

Caramel Apple Pie II

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
Have made this recipe two years in a row now for Thanksgiving and everyone loves it. With the caramels it can be a little too sweet so I usually cut back on the sugar. I usually make the pie the night before, then just put it in the oven right before we sit down for dinner, turn the oven off and let the residual heat warm up the pie. Perfect.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
These totally hit the spot for a chocolate craving. Did increase the cocoa to 1/2 cup. Also substituted fat free greek yogurt for 1/2 the butter. Needed to cook probably 5 extra minutes for the extra moisture.

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2005
This recipie is wonderful. I made a couple of batches for friends and people at work last christmas time and now in September with the first chill in the air I am getting calls for more bread. I added a little vanilla extract and about 1/4 of a cup of maple syrup, which was the flavor no one could place but everyone loved!

Fried Rice I

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
This was a great recipe for the end of the month out of money pantry. We always have rice so all i had to buy was 3 strips of bacon and one thick slice of ham. Added half a bag of frozen stir fry veggies and doubled the amount of rice, soy, and eggs. Was a great cheap dinner. I think I spent $6 on meat and frozen veg, had rice, eggs and soy on hand, had plenty left over for two lunches the next day so I got 6 servings out of this. Will definatly be adding this the the end of month list.

Sweet Maple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2004
This recipe was amazing. Everyone who came to Sunday dinner was so impressed and delighted with the sweet flavor and the tender porkchops. The only thing I changed was I had to use more oats for the coating than the recommended amount. Some of the oats fell of during cooking but this made the sauce have a great texture.

Autumn Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
We really like this. I didn't have any egg noodles so had it with steamed carrots and mashed potatoes. I doubled it since I had some pork to use. I would have been fine with leaving the sauce as one amount instead of two.
