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.

Glazed Tofu Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
This was surprisingly good! I had a package of ground turkey & a package of lite tofu & nothing in mind to make for dinner. The recipe is also very forgiving -- add what you like, subtract what you don't. We don't like onions or green peppers, so I used poultry seasoning, garlic and mushrooms. I just added the seasoned bread crumbs until it all stuck together nicely. Great recipe, thank you!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

All American Apple Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2003
This is a super-easy & great tasting pie recipe. I used 5 Fuji apples, which still made the pie overflow a bit. I also found that the top was more like dough & not crumbly. But I think that actually adds to the taste & texture of the pie. Just don't expect to have a crumbly topping. My 2 1/2 year old enjoyed rolling the topping into little balls & putting them on top. It was great! The pie was for my Dad's b-day & he likes his apple pies almost like applesauce, so I baked it 20 minutes longer & then left it in the oven another 15 minutes after I turned it off. The crust never burned, which is amazing! Thank you.

Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2003
This is a good, creamy, kid-friendly recipe. I only wanted to make half the recipe, so insted of being left with 1/2 a can of cream of mushroom soup, I used that in place of the mayo. I also used bread crumbs with butter becasue I did not have the crackers. It turned out just great. Thanks!

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.

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).

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.

Spicy Italian Pork Cutlets

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
My family loved this. After cooking it, the pork just didn't look very appetizing so I was worried I was going to have to make a fast food run to make up for a flop, but was very pleasantly surprised. I served it over wide egg noodled & will definitely make again. Thanks!

Apple Bavarian Torte

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2004
Much easier to make than I anticipated. Some tortes don't need a crust on the side, as they set firm enough. Given the amount of crust this recipe called for, I ran it up the side of the pan. It worked well, but I think would have been prettier w/o the crust on the sides. I also used 1.5X the cream mixture. I did precook the apples a little first, which reduces the amount. So if you precook the apples, don't reduct the number you use. It turned out great & tasted wonderful.

Chicken or Turkey Tetrazzini Deluxe

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2003
This turned out great -- a perfect quick dinner to throw together after work. My nearly 3 year old even enjoyed helping make (and eat)it. I halved the recipe & omitted the water as per other reviews & was thankful I did. Also, we don't like peppers so I added lightly steamed chopped broccoli instead, which worked just fine.

Glazed Pork Chop

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2003
This was simple & tasted good. I served it with candied yams & the sauces went well together. I laughed because my husband's comment was that it was very good, but I should add more mustard next time. Many other reviewers said it was too much mustard. It just goes to show everyone is different. It did take longer than 20 minutes to cook for me, too.

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.
