Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2011
This was a hit at my daughters birthday party!!! I served in a hollowed out cantaloupe half with pineapple, strawberries, grapes and cantaloupe for dipping.

Luau Punch

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2011
I misread the recipe and did not freeze overnight, but flavor was still good. Plan on making again but will follow the directions correctly next time : )

Chili con Queso with Chicken (Similar to Carlos O'Kelly's)

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
This was fantastic!!! My children love Carlos O'Kelly's queso so this was a HUGE hit! I omitted the chicken and substituted a can of drained rotel tomatoes for the diced tomato and green chilies because that's what I had on hand. Will try the recipe as written next time :)

Spicy Sweet Potato Chips

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
I made three batches of these and nothing I did would make them crisp up. I am new to cooking sweet potatoes so maybe I was doing something wrong. We liked the flavor, so if I make again I will probably just dice and roast in the oven.

Honey Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
This was pretty good, although I do agree that it smelled funny when cooking. Due to comments that chicken lacked flavor I marinated in the sauce prior to cooking. I made a few changes to help increase the flavor: extra garlic (grated with micro-plane), lemon zest, a little olive oil and salt/pepper. The sauce had an oriental taste to it. I will make again using orange instead of lemon.

Baby Spinach Omelet

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
I omitted the nutmeg bc I didn't have any. I used a microwave omelet maker dish and it came out perfect. My 8 year old LOVED it and requested it for breakfast again tomorrow!

Green Slime Smoothie

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2011
Both my girls (5 & 8) asked me to add more spinach next time; that in itself makes this a 5 star recipe :) I used a few splashes of apple juice to help blend everything together. Could not taste the spinach at all! Even my picky husband drank it and said tasted like strawberry/banana smoothie. Ours came out more brown than green. Next time I'll add extra spinach and half the strawberry. Do not think the honey is needed so will skip that too!

Creamy Avocado-Ranch Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
I was looking for an alternative for a creamy avocado dip I make because I didn't want to smell up my kitchen (it involves boiling fresh tomatoes and jalapenos). This dip was very similar in flavor without as much work. I did add an extra avocado because I didn't feel 2 was enough. I didn't have celery salt so I added a little onion powder and an extra dash of salt. I also added extra hot sauce for more kick. The ranch flavor was a little overpowering. I plan on making it again. Next time I will prob start off with half the ranch packet and add as needed.

Spicy Sausage Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2011
This was okay, but will make some adjustments next time I make it. We preferred the filling as a breakfast taco instead of a casserole.

Quick Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
If your looking for the 'Best Ever' peanut butter cookie this recipe is not for you. BUT if your looking for a 'Great' flourless peanut butter cookie this is it! Both my 5 and 8 year old daughters were recently put on a gluten free diet. I love that I can still make them treats with out the expense of gluten free baking mixes. I used half white sugar and half brown sugar. I pulsed the two together in the food processor before adding the the egg and pb. I froze half the cookie dough for later use! Thanks for a quick and tasty dessert! Update: I used the defrosted frozen dough and increased the bake time to 12 minutes and they came out perfect! With the extra bake time they were better than a "normal" pb cookie!!!

Scalloped Potatoes 'n' Franks

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2011
This was a good, budget friendly meal. It's not something I would make often but it's a good way to use things I always have on hand.

Spinach Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
I substituted chicken stock for the water and added diced chicken to make a casserole. Written as is, I think it would be a little bland. I added fresh garlic with the onion and seasoned the chicken for additional flavor. With the small changes I made my family enjoyed and asked for it again.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
I rarely make meatballs because mine never turn out right. They are always too dry or over cooked. I used only the meatball portion of the recipe and they came out great! I was worried about not precooking them, but they were fully cooked and moist!

Pizza Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
This was a nice change from spaghetti, but still just as low cost. I used rigatoni as that is what I had on hand. One jar of sauce didn't look like enough so I added another. I also added bell peppers and garlic with the hamburger and onion. My whole family LOVED it and my 4 year asked for it again tomorrow. This is definitely a keeper :)

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
When I was asked to bring the green bean casserole for Thanksgiving I cringed! Not being a fan of the mushroom soup version I was thrilled to find this recipe. Only made minor changes and some extra seasonings. It was a hit! I plan on taking it to my husband's family Thanksgiving on Sunday!

Roasted New Red Potatoes

Wonderful Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 7, 2013
This was a great base recipe for meatloaf. I needed a meatloaf recipe that was gluten free and this worked perfectly. I added seasoning, egg and crushed gluten free rice krispies to the recipe. I doubt I'll make the recipe as written, but I will be using it again as a starter.
