Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2003
In place of the 1/4 cup onion, I used the Durkee fried onions, and reduced the sour cream by 1/4 cup. I also placed the leftover onions on top of the casserole along with the crackers. Everyone thought it was great for Thanksgiving.

Garlic-Lemon Double Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2004
Although this recipe was good, it was very heavy. i could only eat 1/2 of the smallest breast of chicken before i had to clear it away. My boyfriend liked it, but thought it was too rich as well and could only be made once in a great while. If i make it again, i will not give it the breaded topping, use a white cheese, and serve it with a tomato sauce.

Shrimp Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2004
The boyfriend and I loved it, but made a few changes to accomodate what we had on hand: (also doubled servings by time we were through) 1 can (+ 1 can h20) cream of chicken soup, used veggie and regular cream cheese, added carrots and corn, clove of garlic, chili spice, Sriracha Chili Paste, and added 8 oz. crayfish tail meat. I loved this recipe(even though we doctored it a bit)! Will def. make again!

Best Ever Pie Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2004
Great crust, rolls neatly. I have found after wrapping it in clear wrap you can freeze it for 20 min and then use it immediately. Thanks for the recipe.

Raspberry Trifle

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2004
Very pretty! I did brush the cake with Grand Marnier as others have. I will probably experiment with other booze-Godiva Liqour maybe? Baileys? Anyway this was great for the holidays, and I found using frozen berries was just as good (and cheaper) than fresh.

Bacon Roll Ups II

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2004
I do not eat pork, so i made these with turkey bacon. i would imagine the extra grease in regular bacon would make these better. i read the other reviews, and decided to add 1/8 tsp. prepared minced garlic and a sprinkle of onion salt on each cream cheese section before rolling in bacon. the boyfriend loved it. thanks for the recipe.

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts II

Pistachio Cream Cheese Fingers

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2004
Wow everyone loved these. they were moist, and very easy to make once we figured out to put the dough in a ziploc bag for uniform size. the drizzled chocolate really made them look festive.

Spinach Pinwheels

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2005
not a fan--i love garlic but that garlic cheese dip did not do it for me. if i make this again, i will make my own spread for it based on cream cheese. good idea though, thanks.

Yum-Yum Corn

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2005
I followed this recipe exactly, and was personally not impressed---tasted like corn laying in a block of cream cheese to me, BUT all of my relatives loved it and raved over it, so i guess i am just an oddball.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
Great recipe. I followed others suggestions and used half the oil and added applesauce. I also substituted sour cream for the yogurt. I did not have chocolate chips, so I chopped 4 oz. of bittersweet chocolate with another 2 oz. of white chocolate. I also added some minced dried cherries and chopped pecans. Delicious!

Orange Herb Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
I have baked whole chickens before, but this was the best I have ever made. Differences: It took a little over 2 hours to bake, added marjoram, minced all herbs and placed under skin and in cavity. Really great! I usually stuff birds with a heavy combo of bread, egg, dried cherries, and turkey sausage but this was very light and made the chicken very moist. I will do this again, thank you.

Tastira (Tunisian Fried Peppers and Eggs)

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
This was very simple and filling. I had thought to alter the recipe and add fried diced potatoes but used the submitters suggestion of serving with a crusty bread instead. Very good, but I think I would like to try it with potatoes as well. Thanks!

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
This was tasty, but the husband and I found them to be very filling. I imagine this would be great for a larger family.
