The Best Fresh Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2014
I love freshly made salsa and this recipe is a good one that can easily be adjusted to one's taste. I chopped up a couple of large garlic cloves and a large seeded jalapeno. (To keep the spice off your hands, wear latex or vinyl gloves while seeding hot peppers.) I also used roma tomatoes - they're meatier and less watery than the regular variety. Put everything in the food processor and had fresh salsa in 5 minutes from start to finish!

Sesame Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2014
This is an easy dish to make, but it needed a few changes for me. I followed the recipe the first time I made this - I would probably give it 3 stars - way too sweet as other readers mentioned. The second time I made this, I doubled the sauce ingredients except the sugar - used brown instead of white, and 3 tablespoons olive oil and 1 tablespoon sesame oil instead of the vegetable. Half of this was used for marinade, the other half reserved for later. Added 2 tablespoons cornstarch to the reserved sauce. Stir-fried the meat, removed it from the pan, then stir-fried sliced mushrooms, chopped red pepper, and sliced carrots. Put the meat back in the pan to heat it back up. Then added the sauce and let it thicken up some. Served this over steamed rice with steamed pea pods and asparagus on the side. Awesome! My husband said it tasted like he was at the local Chinese restaurant - but without all the MSG! This will probably be served at my house at least every other week - I love it! Next time, I may make it with a bag of frozen stir-fry veggies.

Chicken Enchiladas V

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2014
I have some cans of cream soups that need used up, so I've been looking for recipes using them. I don't usually use cream soups in my enchiladas, but this one sounded really good. I did do some tweaking to suit our tastes. I boiled some chicken breasts the day before with chopped onions and garlic, salt, pepper, and cumin. I removed the meat and let the broth simmer down some to use with recipe. Next day, I shredded the meat and heated up corn tortillas while my sauce heated on the stove. I left out the sour cream (hubby doesn't care for it) and added a can of cheddar cheese soup. Added a small can of green enchilada sauce (I love that stuff!) and a soup can full of my chicken broth, 2 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp cumin, and the green chile peppers. I poured part of the sauce into my shredded chicken, then covered the bottom of my baking pan with the sauce. I dipped my tortillas in the sauce before spooning in the chicken mixture, rolled them up and poured more sauce over the top. Can you tell we like lots of sauce with our enchiladas? lol Topped with shredded cheese, chopped onions, and sliced black olives and baked. Served them with chopped tomatoes on top and Mexican rice on the side. Yum yum - and I have enough leftover for todays' lunch!

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw II

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2005
KFC's coleslaw is the only slaw I will eat, so I was so happy to find this recipe. But I did make a few changes - I cut the sugar down to 1/4 cup and left out the buttermilk (I don't like it, so I don't buy it!). I also used cider vinegar instead of white vinegar. I added some celery seed for a little extra flavor. My husband says it's the best he's ever had, so I have to beat him to the bowl if I want any!

Hard Rock Candy

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2005
This recipe is awesome! My family loves it in different flavors that I got at a bakery supply store-and I made each flavor a different color. I didn't use the powdered sugar-it looks pretty without it. To make the candy even easier, I used molds that made the candies in little rectangles, sort of like the "Jolly Rancher" candies. This candy will definitely be added to my goody boxes that I give away for Christmas this year!

Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2005
This recipe is so easy and so good! Made a few changes, I left out the chopped onion and celery since my teenage kids won't eat anything with chopped onion or celery, and used 1/2 teaspoon onion powder (Out of sight, out of mind!). I cut the celery seed to 1/2 teaspoon and added 2 teaspoons dried parsley. I added another can of chicken broth since we like lots of broth in our chicken and dumplings. I also added a cup of frozen mixed veggies. My family ate it up, no leftovers! Awesome recipe!

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2004
These rolls are wonderful! I wanted something special for Sunday morning breakfast since that seems to be the only time my teenage children have time to sit down with their parents, and these rolls definitely were a hit! They were very easy to make Saturday night and reheat Sunday morning. I made a powdered sugar glaze to top them. Now my family wants me to make them at least once a month!

Rotini and Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2004
I was looking for a recipe to use leftover roasted chicken and thought this would be good with a few changes. First, I read the reviews about it being too dry, so I added a cup of chicken broth. Also, since my husband isn't a big cheese fan, I substituted cream of mushroom soup for the cheese soup and left out the mushrooms. I also heated this in the microwave so the sauce wouldn't dry out (my family likes saucy casseroles). I was pleased with the casserole, my family liked it, and I will make this again. I may use broccoli instead of peas the next time.
