Creamy Hot Cocoa

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
mmm!!! I tried 1 1/2 cups of sugar and it was still really sweet so I tried it again and added 1 cup and it was great!!! I also used skim milk instead of half & half and it tasted just as good.

Country Fried Steak and Milk Gravy

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
So good, I let mine simmer in the gravy for about @ 2 hours. Made the gravy really thin with a can of beef broth so it could cook longer and not turn into paste. The steaks were so tender and just wonderul.

Fruited Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
I hosted a baby shower and made this recipe. Served it on small squares of wheat pita with a little bit of crisp lettuce... it was a huge hit. I thought I added too much curry but everyone else at the shower just raved over the taste. I thought it was good too. They must have really loved it, there was some left over and people took some home. I was very pleased and will make again!!

Cheesy Potato and Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2009
Oh my gosh this is so good! I thought the combination of chilies and gravy mix would be odd. Oh but to the contrary!! Everyone in my house gives this one a big 5 stars. It was exactly what I was looking for, tastes just like (maybe better) than the corn chowder from the sandwich shop.

Smothered Green Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
Very good recipe, I'm not a huge green bean fan but I really liked these. I even got my children to eat some. Its a keeper. The only slight change I made I added fresh mushrooms with the onions, just because I had them and had to do something with them. They didn't change the taste of the beans, I don't believe and they tasted really good. I can't think of anything that wouldn't be good saute in bacon fat, onion and garlic.

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
Very nice recipe, easy, creamy, rich. I like the fact that it is no bake, the bananas didn't turn that yucky grey color they sometimes do when heated. This is a keeper, I'm taking it to my family reunion this weekend, I am sure it will be a hit. I do think next time I'll use neufatel cheese instead of cream cheese. I think it might cut down on the richness a bit. It set up beautifully, great presentation! Even better the next day.

Raised Yeast Waffles

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
Really, really good. I am a mix kinda girl too so this seemed a bit more work that I would regularly do... until I tried them. I added vanilla flavoring and a bit more sugar (maybe 2 Tbsp)and let the mix rest and rise for the full 45 mins. Light and chrispy. I will make this one again but will take advise from another reviewer and make it the night before. Great recipe!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2007
My only advise on making this recipe is, don't make it, unless you are ready to make another batch after you devour the first. These are so good. These will have to be at the top of the best cookies I have ever made list. Worth every star and then some!!

Magic Mango Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
OK, I was going to make this WONDERFUL sounding recipe and prove all those nay sayer wrong. Well, it was so less than wonderful. Now I will admit I did not add the coconut, nuts or rasins but added more mango that called for, also added lemon juice, a little ginger and a pinch of cardamon. It really tasted like a really good peach cobbler. Not at all what I expected. It was very moist. I don't think I will be making it again this way, I may try it without the mango all together and replace them with cranberries and walnuts.

Chocolate Cherry Chip Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2007
I loved this cake, I'm not a big chocolate lover but this one I loved! I want to make these into cupcakes for my daughter's birthday. Mine did stick very bad, I didn't let it cool long enough before trying to turn it out and it made a mess. But what a delicious mess it was!!!

Linguine and Clam Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2007
Oh my gosh!!! So very good!! I also omitted the oil and butter, added 1 cup of white wine and some chopped red pepper from a jar. I've never had pasta with clam sauce before and boy have I been missing out. The only change I might make is next time I'll add more clams.

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2007
Really good! All I had on hand was a can of crushed tomatos and some medium salsa. I had a pack of 6 frozen chicken tenders, I fried them (using very little oil) chopped them in little pieces and added some left over white beans we had made a day or so before. Which was way more than the recipe called for, if I had to guess I would say it was more like 2 or 3 cans. I used the exact spices. It turned out great. The corn added great texture, a nice crunch. I made a creole type cornbread to serve with, and topped with fat free sour cream... YUMMMMMM.

Buttermilk Syrup

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2007
This is wonderful! I didn't have any corn syrup so I used 1tbsp of corn starch. We try to eat low fat so I only had skim milk on hand. I added a little lemon juice to the milk and it worked great in place of the buttermilk. Also I didn't have the butter, I used 1tbsp of Smart Balance light spread and added butter flavoring at the end to make sure it had that buttery taste, although, I don't think you really need it it's rich enough. One more subsitute, I used 1/2 cup of dark brown sugar and 1 cup of white sugar. I think I'll cut down on the white sugar next time, really sweet for me but my kids loved it. The extra sweetness, thickness and carmel flavor worked GREAT with whole wheat pancakes, however, which can and extra kick sometimes. I would like to try cooking it a little longer, to thicken it a bit more, and pour over popcorn and pretzels and bake for a few mins. I don't see me ever buying store bought syrup ever again. I'll use this one over and over!

Seven Layer Tortilla Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2007
I am only giving this dish one star, although, I feel it would be unfair to make a judgement after my first attempt at making this dish. I don't know if it was my garlic or what, but, to me, the garlic was overwhelming! I will try this one again, however, I will leave out the garlic.
