Pad Thai

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2006
This didn't look like the real deal but tasted pretty close! Everyone loved it, but most have not had it before. I made mine with shrimp, doubled the sauce and used limes instead. Yum! Also I didn't have directions on rice noodle package, so I called my mom. Toss the noodles in boiling water for 1 min then turn off the heat. Let it sit for 5 min in the hot water, check for softness, then rinse with cold water. So much faster than letting them soak!

Salmon and Spinach Fettuccine

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2006
I'm giving this 4 stars because it had really good flavor although I wish it would have specified that you have to simmer the sauce for a LONG time to get the right consistency. Mine was kind of gritty but now I know for next time! I used italian seasoning instead of oregano and diced tomatoes instead of sun-dried. No capers.

Awesome Roast Beef

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2006
I used this recipe as a base to make my first pot roast while using the slow cooker for the first time. It was great! Very simple. Because of other suggestions, I used regular liquid beef broth and roasted garlic cream of mushroom. I added a few seasonings and some splashes of worcestire sauce and brandy. I also cut up a whole onion and threw it in at the beginning, then added potatoes and carrots about 2 hours in. Next time I will probably add celery and mushrooms. I poked the roast with a cooking fork to absorb the flavor and served with crusty bread. Quick and easy, just the way I like!

Amazing Crab Shells

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2004
I did as the last suggested by leaving out sugar, using sour cream instead of mayo, and baking in mini pastry shells. Omigosh! Soooo good! Absolutely delicous!!

Broccoli Chicken Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
I was a little nervous to try this but it came out very good. I did not nuke it, instead I covered with foil and baked at 400 degrees for about 35 min. I did season the chicken breasts with the basics: salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder. I also put a little salt and pepper on the chopped broccoli, and sprinkled a little shredded cheese on top at the end. Flavor was good and overall, pretty healthy. Will make again. Great every day budget dinner!

Beef and Broccoli

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
It's ridiculous how good this tastes from a gravy mix! Definitely add soy sauce and take out the beef while cooking the veggies. I also added ground ginger, onion powder and garlic powder and a can of baby corn. Plus I grabbed a bag of fresh pre-cut broccoli (the kind you use for dipping in dressing and such) for super fast results! Dinner was on the table in 20 minutes!

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
Excellent recipe! Just made these this morning with my kids. Only changes I made were I used a little less macadamia nuts and a little more white chocolate chips. I also refrigerated the dough for about 10 min while I waited for the oven to preheat and did not grease the baking sheet. I cooked them for 9 min and took them out right when the edges started to turn brown. They looked underdone but when they cooled, they were PERFECT! Had some friends over and they adored them, asking for a third and fourth cookie. I was even told by one friend that it was the best cookie he'd ever had!

Spinach Lasagna III

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2004
This was absolutely delicious! I made it for dinner with fried fish and got compliments from everyone! I also thought it could use a little more spinach and sauce but was fantastic anyway! I followed the recipe exactly except I used 1 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning instead of basil and oregano (didn't have any on hand). Hubby said "This is a regular!"

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2004
I've made this several times since I first tried it in 2004. I use just one can of potato soup and the frozen o'brien hashbrowns with the peppers mixed in. I find that the peppers give it a much better taste. Thawing out the hashbrowns in the microwave also cuts down cooking time.

Brownie Mix in a Jar II

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2004
I had to change my review after making the second batch which came out absolutely perfect with these changes: 2 cups sugar, 1 cup buter, 3 eggs, 1/2 cup chocolate chips, 3/4 cup pecans, and 1 tsp vanilla. They were so fudgy and yummy! I brought them to work and my co-workers kept asking me to make more! For gifts, I actually decided to go ahead and bake the brownies and put them in Christmas tubs from the dollar store! So cute!

Poor Man's Hamburger Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2005
I decided to make this for dinner tonight because I actually had all the ingredients on hand! Well not the saltines, but I just used breadcrumbs instead. It was pretty good and very easy to prepare. Kind of a cheaper variation of salisbury steak, which I think I would prefer if I had more time. But this was good enough for me and the family to make again on a budget. UPDATE: I tried this recipe again but fried it in the pan like another reviewer suggested. Much tastier and faster too!

Easy Italian Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2004
I must have done something wrong because my chicken was bland, a little spicy but still bland. I scaled the recipe down to 4 servings and used 5 drumsticks. I couldn't taste the garlic, and I just didn't like it. Sorry.

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2004
These were a hit at my house! I served with mashed potatoes and garlic green beans (great and can be found on this website). I did as some others suggested and used a packet onion soup,a can cream of mushroom, and doubled the gravy. Just a tad salty for my taste. Next time I will omit salt and maybe use half an onion packet, and add mushrooms because I forgot this time.

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
Pretty tasty! I eyeballed the ingredients. The boys loved it. Great for everyday chicken. I also just baked instead of broiling.

Easy Shepherd's Pie with Garlic Romano Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2006
This was pretty good! The potatoes really do make this dish. I followed the recipe except I used parmesan instead of romano cheese and italian seasoning instead of oregano and basil. I love that you can put all those veggies in and still get my toddler to eat it up! Try adding a layer of shredded cheese under the potatoes.

Iced Mocha Fusion Shake

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2004
I eyeballed the amounts and omitted the vanilla and sugar. Then I added about 3-4 shots of E&J cream liquor. I also used instant cappucino mix. Delicious!

Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2004
This is a great basic recipe for tuna casserole! SOOOO EASY! I did add an extra can of tuna, an extra can of cream of mushroom, milk, and of course extra cheese! Also threw in a can of peas just because it had been sitting in my pantry forever and gave my baby girl some added nutrition. Thanks Lindsay!

Tantalizingly Tangy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2004
Better than your average meatloaf, but we aren't really meatloaf eaters. Thought I'd try it anyway since it got 5 stars. Not bad. I used 1 1/2 lbs ground beef, added some onion powder, and cooked in an 8x8 pan to have more sauce per bite (also helped cook a little faster).

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2004
These were good, but I had trouble with the styrofoam. I used a take out box, which didn't support my heavy strawberries. Next time I will stack a few plates like someone else suggested. Make sure you dip fast, because the chocolate will turn into frosting quick!
