Bourtheto

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2013
My husband, who likes his food HOT enjoyed this. I did add a fresh cayenne pepper and 1/2 of a ghost pepper for his tastes. After reading reviews about potatoes taking longer to cook, I used the smaller white potatoes and used frozen tilapia and cod. Fresh is always better, but the frozen was what I had and it worked well with the longer cooking time allowing it to defrost while cooking the potatoes and fish completely. My husband suggested trying couscous or lentils in place of potatoes next time, just to change it up.

Catfish Tuscany

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2012
My husband loved this! I used swai fish, which is very similar to catfish but usually cheaper, at least where we live. I broiled from the middle of the oven as it was getting too brown, too quickly from the higher rack.

Turkey Veggie Meatloaf Cups

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2012
We liked these a lot more than we expected to. Our family is on a "trying new things" kick, and this was one that was a hit. I cooked up some jumbo shell noodles & put the cooked meatballs into them making it more fun to eat (finger food for the kids!). I made the left overs into a sandwich for my husband the next day.

Tacos in Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
I followed the recipe except I added a spoonful of black beans at the bottom of each shell. The whole family enjoyed it- I used spicy taco sauce on 1/2 and mild on the other so all would be happy. My son heated up leftovers the next day in the toaster oven using the "toast" setting. He said it was fast and made it into yummy, crispy finger food. So there's the 11 year old's tip.

Beef Nacho Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
Like others, for the creamy salad dressing I used light sour cream with a little light mayo. The casserole held together pretty well. My husband complained it was a little bland so I added cayanne pepper to 1/2 of it the second time I made it. He was happy and the kids were happy with their less spicy side.

Chocolate Pudding Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
This tasted great and is a great way to seriously improve on a store bought cake mix. I used Pam to spray the bundt pan and must have missed a section because about 1/4 of the cake stuck. Rather than try to fix it using frosting, I clean cut the 3/4 that came out well and made it pretty with the glaze. With the 1/4 that stuck, I made cake cups for the kids. This was a Christmas Eve dessert, so I put a scoop of the cake in the bottom of a Christmas designed platstic cup. Then I added a spoonful of whipped cream, then a spoonful of cake, then whipped cream & topped with a little glaze. The kids really liked the cups and I didn't waste any of the yummy cake.

Heartland Vegetable Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
Our family enjoyed this. I used a can of sliced potatoes rather than the red potatoes to save some time. I also added a little mustard powder to the sauce.

Middle Eastern Turkey Dogs

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
My kids absolutely loved this. I served on oblong shaped naan, so I shaped the turkey into ovals and served with yogurt/cucumber/dill/garlic/lemon sauce. My kids ate it like a sandwich while my husband stacked everything & used a fork. Thanks for the recipe!

Sweet and Sour Chicken II

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
This was a bit too sweet for our taste, so I will cut back on the brown sugar next time. But other than that, it was a hit. I also used Wondra rather than regular flour because I am terrible at making smooth sauces. It went well with fried rice.

Ham, Potato and Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
I used a can of sliced potatoes rather than the french fries. Just as easy & a bit healthier. The whole family enjoyed it - I did add hot sauce to 1/2 of it for me & my husband.

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
This is definitely the best kid-friendly Sloppy Joe recipe. I literally used to strain the store bought canned sauce becasue my daughter refuses to eat if she detects anything crunchy in the mix. I used half tomato sauce & half ketchup and gorund turkey. Thanks for a MUCH better alternative to canned mixes.

Butter Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
It worked really well in a pita with cucumber/yogurt/mint sauce. To cut out the oil for frying, I tried cooking a couple on foil on the top rack of my gas BBQ grill & that worked pretty well. It didn't have quite the same crispy crust as the fried ones did, but tasted great once in the pita.

Unstuffing Side Dish

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
I usually make plain old stuffing at Thanksgiving just for tradition sake. But I selected this recipe last time, using savory sage sausage as a few others recommended, and now I have been asked to make it for family gathering since Thanksgiving. It is very moist and has a compelte flavor (you don't need to eat it with a bite of turkey or chicken for good flavor).

Ground Turkey Noodle Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
My family ate it, but did not care for the "odd" taste of the cheese mix bottom. I like the idea of it, so I think I will try making it again using a cheese sauce of chedddar & jack rather than the cream cheese.

Angela's Oriental Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
This was a quick weeknight dinner that pleased the whole family. I didn't add the bok choy because I knew my kids would just pick it out, so I added some chopped broccoli instead. I also added sliced mushrooms. I cooked the chicken with soy sauce and garlic/herb mix. Thanks for sharing!

Chocolate Chip Scones

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
I just made a 1/2 batch because I wasn't sure how they would go over. My husband just said they were amazing & he wished I'd made more. They were not rubbery at all - they came out brown and crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. I cooked for only 13 minutes. Be sure to only use the top rack so the bottoms won't burn.

Grilled Brown Sugar Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
My family loved this. I cut the sugar to just over 1/4 cup and used Wondra rather than corn starch.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
This turned out great & as others have said, it makes enough for 2 cakes. I felt like I had the mixer on forever to get it to the right consistency, so if you are impatient like me, tell yourself to keep mixing & it'll be worth it.

Broccoli Rice Side Dish

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
The mix of ingredients was great. A fast, weeknight dish that got veggies into my kids. I used fresh broccoli (a bag of Broccoli Wokly) and a cup of Mexican Blend cheese. I did not have instant rice either, so I cooked 3/4 cup of regular rice. I cooked the bag of broccoli in the micro for 3 minutes, then added it to the can of soup, milk, pepper, cup of cheese and the cooked rice. My hubby won't eat onions so I crumbled a few Ritz crackers instead on top & threw it in the microwave for 5 minutes.

Christmas Cheese Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
This was great - very high, light and fluffy for a cheesecake. It also looks so pretty. You need 2 packages of the 3oz lady fingers rather than one but other than that, no changes. Maybe it was because I made it at Christmas time, but all of the grocery stores had lady fingers in the bakery section, so I had no problem finding them.
