Pineapple Angel Food Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2005
This was absolutely delicious. I will make it again and again. Just one word of caution. Although the directions clearly stated 9 x 13 pan, I made it in a tube pan. The directions on the cake mix stated in big bold letters, DO NOT GREASE PAN, so I did't. BIG, BIG, MISTAKE. The cake stuck to the pan and came completely apart. Sooo, I just took the pieces, put them in a 9 x 13 pan and spread the Cool Whip topping over them. Everyone still loved it. I did add a small can of pineapple to the Cool Whip, along with a couple of drops of yellow food coloring, just for a little added touch. Thanks so much for posting this recipe.

Chicken Enchiladas III

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2004
This is similar to the way I make my chicken enchiladas, but almost every recipe at this site I have seen for these uses flour tortillas. We live in South Texas and no one has ever heard of using flour tortillas for enchiladas. We use only corn tortillas. I'll bet if you try them you will never go back to the flour ones.

Texas Christmas Pickles

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2005
This is similar to a recipe I have used, except we purchased gallon jars of hamburger slices at Sam's instead of having to slice the pickles. As you described, they are dark green, crisp and yummy. Everyone loves them. My recipe calls them "cheater pickles." We packaged them in small containers with a red plaid ribbon for Christmas gifts. A big hit! Mine did not call for the hot sauce.

Frozen Cranberry Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
A great cranberry dish. Something light, cool and refrishing to go with the heavy turkey, dressing and gravy. Can be prepared in advance. Also a plus!

Soda Cracker Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2006
Sorry, but I thought these were a big waste. Not fit to eat in my opinion, and I certainly would not give to anyone. They stick to your teeth and are messy to make. I won't make again.

Sad Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2005
I have made this twice now. It is a real winner, easy, quick, and everyone loved it. I cut it into bars like brownies. OK, something has gone awry. Since first making this with great success, the last 2 times, it has been a total flop. It did not rise, much less fall, and it was dry and tasteless. I can account for part of the problem, since I did not use chocolate chips that I normally put in, but am wondering if the baking mix could be outdated? I am going to try one more time using a fresh box of baking mix and adding the chocolate chips as I hate to abandon a recipe that I previously used with such success.

Amy's Cilantro Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2006
Excellent! Do not wait to try it, or you will be missing out. I am not the biggest fan of cilantro, so only put in about 1/2 a bunch and it was fine. As someone else mentioned, it does thicken in the refrigeration. When you first make it, it is pourable, more like a sauce, but after chilling, it is more "dip like." Either way, very good.

Hamburger Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2005
I made 2 pots of this at once, and made a couple of changes. I did not have any frozen corn or ketchup, so had to omit those, but added a few potatoes in place of the corn. I used only 3 boullion cubes and 1 can of beef boullion in place of some of the water. After adding the tomato sauce, I was afraid the soup would be too tomatoey, so didn't put the sauce in the 2nd pot. They both turned out equally good. We enjoyed this immensely and I plan to make it again and again. I thought the celery added a lot to the taste, and am surprised that so many left it out. I served this with toasted French bread. The flavor only improves the next day and the soup thickens a bit more. Yummy, yummy, yummy !

Cranberry Macadamia Nut Bark

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2006
Very easy to make. I followed directions exactly; attractive and would be nice to give for holidays. I would like to try making a variation using peppermint candy instead of the dried cranberries. I recommend you try it.

Cake Mix Cookies IV

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2012
Excellent quickie recipe. I made these for a family member to take to the beach on spring break. Used a lemon cake mix and sprinkled with powdered sugar immediately after taking out of the oven. The powdered sugar adhered to the top as they cooled, and made a pretty presentation. They would be nice for a baby or wedding shower too. Everyone loved them.

Quick Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
As a working mom on a tight budget, this recipe helped stretch our food dollars for a family of 5. Whenever possible, I would top it with cheddar cheese, not as healthy, but yummy!

Tex-Mex Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
I love corn on the cob cooked on the grill, but sometimes if I am in a hurry I don't have time to do a receipe from scratch, so have tried mixing a few shakes of taco seasoning into the melted butter. Not as good as the recipe, but a quick fix ifyou are in a hurry.

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
This is very similar to my grandmother's recipe as far as contents, but she NEVER cooked the rice before mixing, and she always cooked them on the stove top, first bringing to a boil, and then a slow simmer for about an hour.

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2006
This is an easy recipe and has an excellent flavor. My husband said it was the best rice I ever made, but as a couple of others mentioned, it is rather mushy. I prefer a firmer textured rice, but that is a personal preference. Overall, quite good, and I will make again.

Pistachio Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2005
I made this exactly by the recipe. Is is very good and would be great to make for St. Patrick's day. If I were making it for Christmas, I would probably add more cherries just for the contrast. We don't care for overly sweet treats so this was perfect for our taste. It reminds me of a pound cake and would probably be good served with fresh fruit.

Broccoli Cheese Cornbread

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2005
I made this exactly by the recipe and my family thought it was yummy. If you are looking for traditional cornbread, you may want to try another recipe as this is more like a broccoli casserole because of the soft inside texture. It would make an excellent and different side dish for a pot-luck. I used jalapeno cornbread mix.

Pecan Pie Surprise Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2004
Something is wrong here ! I tried these yesterday, and 1/2 cup of melted butter and one egg to 1/3 of the cake mix does not equal "crumbly" It was DOUGH ! That was way too much liquid. I can not believe the others made this by the recipe and came out with such rave reviews. After seeing the results of all that liquid, all I could do to salvage it was to add the additional eggs, etc. called for on the box of cake mix and just bake a plain yellow cake. I was very disappointed as I was baking these for company. After reading the response. I wish to say that I did not misread the directions. My only thought is that perhaps they meant "softened butter" as opposed to "melted butter." I still say that 1/3 box of cake mix, 1 egg, and 1/2 cup of melted butter was not crumbly.
