Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2012
Wow! I was completely surprised at how light and crisp these turned out. I never would have guessed that they are whole grain. My whole family loved them. Before finding this recipe, the only whole grain waffles my husband would eat was an expensive store bought brand. This is the new favorite.

Chunky Cheesecake Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2011
Wow. Very, very good. My husband told me he would order these in a restaurant. I always double the recipe and use a 9x13. It takes about 40 min to bake when doubled. The first time, I made as is. Now when I make it I put about half the amount of choc chips into the cream cheese mix and usually use a little extra cream cheese. Delicious.

Pineapple Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
This is really good. I used long grain rice and had no problems with this getting thick and creamy. The higher fat the milk is that you use, the better. I'll use a can of evaporated milk, and then regular milk for the rest. With the cream cheese, I usually use 4 oz because it's easier to just cut an 8oz block in half.

Pineapple Cracker Spread

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
So good. I have to stop myself from eating it all. It definitely needs to chill before serving. It's best when made a day ahead.

Friendship Soup Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
I gave this 4 stars because I think it's too salty. I think 1/4 of bouillon is perfect. I used clear treat bags instead of jars to save money. This makes a great christmas gift if you're trying to avoid all the sweets.

Albondigas

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2009
I liked this a lot! I used salsa that I canned myself. If you think it's bland, you might want to try a different brand of salsa.

Szechwan Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
We liked this, but it was too salty. I would use the reduced sodium soy sauce. The spice was just right if you don't like things too spicy. If I weren't feeding it to kids, I'd probably up the red pepper a bit. I'd probably try it again with those changes.

Pumpkin Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
First of all, I'm a big fan of both pumpkin pie and rice pudding. I don't think this tastes like pumpkin pie and I didn't love the pudding. I made it exactly as written(4 cups of milk is not too much when using the right rice), but something in the pumpkin layer seemed off. I think it could have used more sugar and spices. I would taste the pumpkin half before baking it, and add whatever you think it needs.

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
I really liked this salsa. I like to add extra mango so the flavor of it doesn't get lost in all the others.

Baked Pesto Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
This is good, but I would suggest marinating the chicken for a few hours before baking. Also, we like using feta cheese instead. Much more flavorful that way.

Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
Way too sweet as written. I use 1/2 cup of honey instead of 1 cup. I also use plain yogurt, and they're still plenty sweet. I never bother with the topping.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
I love the idea of these. I followed the recipe exactly, but wasn't too impressed. They turned out fine, and the kids thought it was really cool, but I couldn't really even taste the cookie dough.

Spooky Witches' Fingers

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
These ended up being a lot of work, but they looked really gross (in a good way). They taste good too, if you can manage to eat one. Before shaping them all, I did a trial run, and baked just a few, so that I could get the size and shape just right, becuase they do grow while baking.

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
These are a favorite of mine. I've been making them for years. The only thing I do differently is add chopped onion. Great recipe!

Thai Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
This salad is great. It's a must with Thai or Indian food. I prefer to use only 1/3 cup sugar. I always add chopped onion and sometimes omit the jalapeno depending on who I'm serving it to. Also, I skip the first step, I just throw it all together and add about 1 tsp of salt instead of 1 Tbls. I like to use the dry roasted peanuts.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2009
This would be 5 star without the sugar. It's plenty sweet when coupled with the sugar coated chips. The chips delicious even alone. I've made this a few times. It's easy to substitute whatever fruit is availiable. It's always a hit.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
Yum! My husband rates this as one of his top favorite dishes, especially when served with Thai cucumber salad. I used 2 Tbs of curry powder, as called for, but added a bit of curry paste for additional heat and flavor. As another reviewer stated, 6 chicken breast halves is the perfect amount of meat for the sauce.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 8, 2009
I love this cake. I've never had a problem with regular chocolate chips sinking (the batter is very thick), but I do prefer the texture of the mini choc chips. This cake is good same day, but SO much better the next day. I always prepare it a day ahead.

Frog Eye Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
I love this stuff! This is almost the same recipe that I've made for years. The only differences are that mine calls for 1/2 pkg of pasta to the amount of sauce shown here. So, If following this recipe, I would double the sauce. Also I never add this much fruit. I prefer it with less. I use 2 cans of mandarin oranges and one large can of pineapple tidbits. I drain the juice from these and use it for the sauce. Sometimes I skip the marshmallows, It's plenty sweet without.

Chicken Enchilada Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
This is very good. I only use half the tortillas because the soup gets so thick.
