Lite Coconut Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2014
Added half a cup coconut flakes to the cake mix. Also some fresh lime zest to the frosting. It was yummy, but not mind blowing. It never got finished, and I live with a lot of people.

Southwestern Black Bean Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2014
I had 8 ounces of already taco seasoned ground beef. I through that and some chopped onion in a big skillet. When it was cooked, I added Mexican flavored stewed tomatoes that I had chopped/squished up, almost a can of black beans, some corn, and a bit of water (not the whole amount). No other seasonings. I let it come to a boil, then covered and let it simmer for a while (40 min?) It was SO good. Topped it with cheese and ate it with cornbread. My dad liked his over potatoes. So easy and so delicious.

Quick Chili I

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2014
Family loved it. I left out the can of plain diced tomatoes. Used chili beans instead of the pinto. A can of beef broth instead of the water. And I didn't add any salt. I also let it simmer for 1.5 hours. Easy and yummy. :)

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
I used different veggies (potatoes, celery, carrots, leeks) and I added a bit of fresh lemon juice. Otherwise I followed the recipe and used the recommended seasonings. The veggies took a bit longer to cook. My husband and five year old LOVED this and ate a lot (and they're not huge veggie people). I thought it was a bit too flavorful, but I like food on the plain side. A good recipe and I'm sure that I'll make this again sometime.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
I followed the recipe very closely. I did add two cloves of minced garlic, used flavored breadcrumbs instead of crackers, and I only needed 1/2 cup of milk. I used 1/8 cup sugar and a few dashes of worcestershire to the ketchup and put it on top instead of the bottom. It took a tad bit longer to cook, but this is one amazing meatloaf. My whole family really enjoyed it. I'm sure I'll make it again sometime.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
These came out perfect and everyone loved them. I soaked the raisins first. No need to put the dough in the fridge first. Toffee bits are also good instead of raisins if people don't like them. I'll never use another oatmeal cookie recipe.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
I made these for Valentines Day and they are the best chocolate chip cookies that I have ever made. I doubled the recipe and put half of the dough in the freezer for later. I accidently used an extra egg white and it made no difference. Used a mixture of choclate chunks and chocolate/white chocolate swirls. They were done in about 15-19 minutes (depending on how many were on a pan). As soon as the edges are brown, take them out, let them harden just a touch, then move to a rack. I had no issues with the dough and there would have been no reason to put it in the freezer or fridge before putting on the cookie sheet.

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2006

Cocoa Quickies

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2006
Perfect. Chocolate gooey goodness. Fast to make and everybody loved them. I added a bit more coconut and a tiny splash of vanilla. :)

Inside Out Ravioli II

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2006
Better than I expected. I used one can of spaghetti sauce and one can of crushed tomatoes. I also used more spinach than recommended and we couldn't even taste it. Next time I would saute a small onion and some garlic and add that to this recipe. But even with out it, it was pretty good (not amazing or anything though) and we did end up eating it all.

Lentils And Spinach

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2006
Husband loved it (especially on a baked potato). I thought it was gross. I might try it again with fresh spinach (I had used frozen).

Grandma's Hash Browns

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
WOW!!!! These are amazing! No need for ketchup or toppings. I used house seasoning instead of just salt and pepper. I make these all the time now. It's totally worth the effort.

Sunny's Creamy Chicken Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
I've made this like four times in the last few months. It is great. Any cream of whatever soup works just fine. It's better over rice than mashed potatoes (we ate it over brown rice and loved it).

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
These were very good and I don't even like blueberries. I didn't have butter, so I couldn't do the topping. I just added some cinnamon sugar mix instead. My husband thinks it was a tad bland. But he's eating them all up in one night so I say this recipe is a winner.

Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
I have no complaints. I followed the directions exactly, it turned out wonderful. A great recipe, maybe not so kid friendly though. I guess that would depend on the kid.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2004
I leave out the crushed red pepper flakes. Other than that, this is a perfect taco seasoning recipe. I haven't been able to tell this apart from the store bought stuff. Plus it's cheaper and healthier. A great recipe to have around.

Make Ahead Lunch Wraps

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2004
This is so far, my favorite recipe from this site. I halved the recipe and used chicken broth instead of water when making the rice. I also used colby jack cheese instead of pepperjack because it was all that I had. These are the yummiest burritos ever. Not to mention being healthy, easy to make, and cheap! I thought my husband might think that they were bland, but he loved them more than I did. He eats them with salsa, I eat them plain. This is all that we've eaten for lunch and dinner all week long. They re-heat very well and I highly recommend trying out this recipe.

Hot Dog Breakfast Burrito

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2004
I used to clean rooms at a motel. Everyday all of the maids would bring in various lunch items and eat together. One maid brought in this exact same thing a few times. I love it! I rarely get to eat it because I never have hot dogs in my house. But this is a simple, yummy recipe that I would eat all of the time if it weren't for my diet. I personally like it the way it is and don't think it needs anything else (I tend to like foods on the plain side though).

Baked Spaghetti Corn

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2004
I was another person who was afraid to try out this recipe. Eventually I figured it was worth a try. Boy am I glad that I gave it a chance. I used macaroni noodles instead of spaghetti. I also cut the amount of butter in half. Cooked it for about fifty minutes and stirred it twice while it cooked. Everything cooked perfectly (no hard noodles) and the liquid from the canned corn cooks the noodles very well (so don't chicken out and drain the liquid, you need it). I didn't try it but it looks and smells really good. My husband ate a ton of it and definitely wants me to make it again.

Cornflake Crunch Tenders

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2004
I didn't have any chicken tenderloins, so I used cut up chicken breasts. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly as it is written. Very easy to make and my husband (who is not a big chicken fan) really liked it a lot. I haven't tried it yet. But it was a simple recipe that my husband loves, so it's already a five star recipe in my opinion.
