Easy Peach Crisp I

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
This turned out awesome. I did make some changes based on other reviews. I used 7 fresh peaches cut into chunks as we never use canned peaches. I sprinkled them with 1/2 cup white sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. I added 1/2 cup brown sugar and cinnamon with the 1/2 cup butter to the cake mix. I used a fork to cut in the butter until the mixture formed pea size "crumbs". I sprinkled this evenly over the top and baked at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!

Glazed Carrots and Snow Peas

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
Changed the recipe a little based on what I had on hand. Used 1/2 bag baby carrots. Skipped the onions and snowpeas (didn't have any). Doubled the ingredients for the sauce. Cooked the carrots 3 minutes in the microwave (with no water). I put the unmelted butter, cornstarch and brown sugar in a microwave safe bowl and heated it for 30 seconds. Poured it over the carrots, tossed to coat and microwaved the carrots for another minute. It was so quick and easy and everyone loved it. Will DEFINITELY make again!

Grilled Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
This is a great basic recipe. We've been doing potatoes like this for years. I toss in other stuff depending on what I have on hand. Our favorite add in is a liberal sprinkling of goat cheese and sliced portabella mushrooms. Just remember that if you add cheese you need to turn the packets about 4 times to keep the cheese from burning to the bottom.

House Fried Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2012
This was really tasty although I did modify somewhat based on what I had on hand and at the recommendation of other reviewers. I omitted the chicken, celery and green pepper because I didn't have any. I substituted olive oil for the sesame oil and Turkey bacon for the ham. I had medium frozen shrimp that I ran under cold water to defrost and coarsely chopped. I premade my rice earlier in the day as well. I also changed the cooking order, I chopped the turkey bacon and fried it for 3 - 4 minutes, then added 1 - 2 tbs olive oil, added the onions and carrots and sauteed until crisp / tender about 5 minutes, added the garlic, sauteed another 2 minutes, made a well in the middle of the pan and added 3 eggs, put the peas and shrimp around the perimeter of the pan to heat up while cooking the eggs. When the eggs were partially set (about 3 minutes) I stirred everything in together. I then added the soy sauce and a HEALTHY dose of Worcestershire sauce (since I was slightly low on Soy Sauce) and salt and pepper. When this was mixed well and heated through I stirred in the rice and heated for another couple of minutes. Turned out FABULOUS!!!

Easy Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
Made this for dinner tonight. Was absolutely delicious. Had to make some changes due to personal preferences and what I had on hand. 1) Added taco seasoning per other reviewers, 1/2 chopped bell pepper, 1/2 chopped onion and 1 tbs minced garlic to the meat as it was browning. 2) Stirred in 1/2 cup salsa, 1 can drained black beans and 1 can diced tomatoes into the meat mixture to simmer 3) Skipped the tomatoes and onions on the top, just put meat mixture on top of the crushed tortilla chips (I used enough to cover the bottom of the pan - didn't measure), covered that with sour cream and tossed on the olives. Sprinkled cheese over top and then sprinkled the cheese liberally with chili powder. Everyone went back for seconds! Will definitely be making this again.

Grilled Pizza Wraps

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
I made this to take to a super bowl party. Everyone loved it and it was SOOOOO easy to make. Have made this for quick lunches, suppers and appetizers several times since then. The only change I make is to use Hunt's Zesty Spaghetti sauce in the can. It is much cheaper than the jar pizza sauce around here and my family likes the added little kick.

Fiery Fish Tacos with Crunchy Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
My husband and I are trying to include more fish in our diet. He is a fish fan, I am not. Usually I only rate recipes if I stuck to the original recipe, but felt that this one needed another rave review even with the modifications I made. I used frozen corn (just ran it under tap water to defrost - didn't cook it), 1/2 cup yellow onion (it's what I had), skipped the jicama (couldn't find any), skipped the cilantro altogether (can't stand it), and used bottled lemon juice (didn't have a lime). I stirred the sour cream right into the "salsa" (didn't read the directions right) and added a bit of fresh ground pepper. I used Tony Cachere's cajun seasoning in place of the cayenne pepper as the seasoning for the fish. I brushed with olive oil and then LIBERALLY coated the fish with the seasoning. It was JUST the right amount of "fiery" spice. To be such a simple recipe, this was fantastic. I ate two tacos myself which is saying a lot for someone who is so anti-fish like I am. I usually take one bite of a fish recipe, gag, and leave the rest for my husband and teenagers to consume. The corn "salsa" added just the right amount of crunch and the freshness of the ingredients paired nicely with the fish. I am DEFINITELY going to put this in the regular rotation.

Slow-Cooker Tex-Mex Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
This is definitely a 5 star recipe based on how simple it is to throw together. I did modify the recipe based on what I had on hand. I used a bag of frozen peppers and onions and 1 - 2 tbs of Tony C's Cajun seasoning (didn't have any taco mix). I made brown rice to go with it. We ate this burrito style with sour cream, cheese, and shredded lettuce. Was very good. I do have to say it made more than 4 servings. We are pretty hearty eaters and four of us ate it until full and still had enough leftovers for two of us to take for lunch.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
I would give this 10 stars if I could. It was soooo good!! I used 1 1/2 envelops onion soup mix to rub the turkey breast all over (under the skin, in the cavity, etc), I also drizzled it will olive oil after putting it in the crockpot. I cooked it on high for an hour and then added 1/2 can chicken broth to the bottom of the crockpot because I wanted enough "Drippings" to be able to make gravy. I used a meat thermometer to tell me when the turkey was done. Mine was done after 6 hours total cooking time (1 hour on high and 5 hours on low). My turkey turned out very flavorful and juicy and my gravy was DIVINE!! Will definitely be making this again!!!

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
I made this for Thanksgiving today and it was a big hit. I did make a few changes just to suit our preferences. 1) I halved the recipe to fit in our medium sized crockpot. 2) I added browned sausage and sauteed the veggies in the drippings 3) I omitted the seasoning since the pepperidge farm corn bread stuffing I used was already seasoned (I did add about 1 tsp black pepper and 1 tsp creole seasoning) 4) I used 1 1/2 cans of chicken broth. I started the crockpot out on high as directed for the first 45 minutes. It then cooked an additional 5 hours. I did notice the stuffing was looking a little soggy, so I took the lid off for the last 45 minutes of cook time and it was perfect. Will DEFINITELY be making this again.....

Cranberry Apple Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
Made this recipe today for Thanksgiving. Followed the recipe as written. The only thing I did differently was to broil the top for about 2 minutes for some extra crispness. My hsuband, who doesn't like cranberry sauce, said this recipe was "kick a$$* which is the highest rating in his repertoire! This recipe will DEFINITELY be replacing the standard canned cranberry slices at my house every Thanksgiving and Christmas!!

Pineapple Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
My family loved this recipe. They were skeptical when they looked at the ingredients, but absolutely LOVED the final results. I did make a few minor changes. 1) I used 2 cans of 20 oz pineapple chunks, drained 2) I did not add the 8 tbs pineapple juice and finally 3) I did not use the full 1/2 cup of butter slices for the top. I only used about 1/3 of a cup. Will definitely be making this again.

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
Everybody loved this. I halved the recipe and it fit perfectly into a round 2 qt glass casserole dish. I didn't have the small can of green chiles, so I just omitted them. I also didn't have the taco sauce, so I substituted medium salsa. Worked great. I followed another reviewer's suggestion to spread the beans on the tortilla and then layer "beany side down" as opposed to mixing the beans in. It worked very well. I also used more cheese than called for because we love cheese :) I did want to say, that per other reviewers, I used three tortillas per layer. It was a little too thick for my preference. Next time I will only use two tortillas per layer and it should be perfect. All in all a GREAT recipe that I will DEFINITELY make again :)

Fruity Fun Skewers

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
Loved this idea. Did a trial run with my immed family before trying this out at our annual 4th of July bash. Made it with Cantaloupe, black grapes and strawberries because that is what I had on hand. My kids (both boys, 17 and 12) loved them. Evnthough there was nothing special about the fruit (we have fresh fruit salad all the time) the novelty of the skewers made it fun for them. WILL definitely make this for the upcoming 4th of July bash to accompany the Fruit Dip II recipe from this site. THANKS FOR THE GREAT IDEA!

Baked French Toast

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
ABSOLUTELY loved this recipe!! I had to adapt it for a gluten free diet and made the following changes : Lined the bottom of a greased 9x13 inch pan with Udi's whole grain GF bread. Mixed 4 eggs, 1/2 cup milk, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp vanilla, and 1/3 cup sugar. Pour over the bread. I let it sit for about 30 minutes then flipped the bread over. I used canned apples slices (I sliced them a little to make them thinner and to make them go farther), and placed them on the bread. I sprinkled with coarsely chopped pecans and brown sugar. I refrigerated over night. In the morning I put the glass pan in a COLD oven at 400 degrees. I baked for 40 minutes. It REALLY crisped up nicely! I warmed up some store bought caramel sausce and drizzled over each piece when serving. This was so amzingly good!!!

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
This was one of the easiest pies I've ever made. I used bottled RealLime juice and the zest of one small lime. I baked for 10 minutes in my oven (and yes, I saw the bubbles) then refrigerated for two hours before serving. The consistency was spot on. The pie is REALLY sweet and rich but hey.. it's DESSERT! We just cut smaller pieces and are delighted the pie will last longer ;)
