Slow Cooker Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2003
This recipe was horrible. Very mushy and the flavors did not blend together well at all. It's even worse as leftovers (and there were plenty!). I do not recommend it at all.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2004
Any roux-based (butter, flour) recipe is bound to be hit! Perfect comfort food for cold, winter evenings. I boosted the flavor by replacing the water with chicken stock that I had in my freezer - I had 2 cups of it and then added 1 1/4 cups water. I recommend just 1/4 t. pepper plus more to taste (words to live by: you can always add, but you can't take away!) + 1 cup shredded cheese stirred into the soup at the very end. I omitted celery all together. Quick, easy, and delicious... yummy!!!!

Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2004
This casserole needs some rice or something... it didn't have very much substance. Although the recipe was o.k., will probably not make again.

Cheeseburger Soup II

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2004
I was initally turned off by the ingredient 'processed cheese' b/c we don't like the taste of Velveeta, but I happened to have 8 oz leftover from a previous recipe. We're so glad I made this! It was soooo yummy even with the Velveeta! It doesn't have a 'processed cheese' taste at all. Omitted the celery and sour cream. No one will ever know.

Garlic Stuffed Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2004
The flavor from the soup and onion mix leaves much to be desired... we did not care for this recipe at all. However, this was the most delicious cut of meat that we've had in a crockpot. Tender and juicy!

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2004
I already had cooked chx breasts so I just made the sauce and it was delicous; however, I had to triple it b/c when I let it reduce I was left with a paste (albeit a yummy paste). This is truly gourmet at home. Served over fettucine noodles, but will try over garlic mashed potatoes next time.

Spicy Potato Soup II

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2004
I was in the mood for something cheesy so I added 16 oz. Velveeta Light - this is why I give it 5 stars. It was Cheesy Spicy Soup! I love finding soup recipes that use ingredients that I wouldn't normally use... tomato sauce and tobasco. Yummy!!

Jiffy Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2004
I was leery, but based on feedback I gave it a try. It's actually very good, but only 3 stars b/c it's hardly an impressive dish. I only used 3 potatoes and 3/4 # hamburger as a result of feedback ("needs more hamburger"). Will omit onion next time (I love onions, but the flavor was all wrong in this recipe) and replace with canned green beans for some color. Great meat and potatoes meal for family (not guests!).

Cinnamon Rolls III

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2004
I wanted to save time so I used frozen bread dough; however, I forgot that after the bread dough thaws, it needs another 4 hours to rise. Needless to say, we ate cinnamon rolls a day and 1/2 later than intended. The filling and frosting DO really taste exactly like the rolls at the mall though! I will definately make these again (note: very, very sweet) using the bread recipe provided. These will impress your guests!!

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2005
I did not have marjoram, thyme, or red pepper flakes (added some hot sauce); turned out delicious. This side dish is really pretty w/ all the herbs coating the potato; the skin (did not peel) was crispy, while the potato was soft. Serves very well with meatloaf (lightly dip some of your potatoes in ketchup... it tastes like fried potatoes mom serves on Sunday mornings!)

Tangy Dill Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 9, 2005
Thank you for the idea to pour the Italian dressing over the HOT potatoes - the flavor of this potato salad is incredible. I omitted the dijon and put in 3 or 4 times the amount of dill. L-O-V-E this recipe. It's a keeper for life!! *I will reduce the amount of mayo next time just to save a few calories - it's creamy enough to make this adjustment.

Chess Cake

Reviewed: May 15, 2005
I'm no baker, so I had no idea what chess cake was - based on the reviews, I gave it a go. I didn't consider, however, that this cake has no frosting; it's hardly a show stopper sitting in the 9x13 pan. This cake was for a baby shower so, I 'frosted' the cake with cool whip, decorated it, and crossed my fingers. Although I think it is far too rich in calories (when I consider how many hours I'd have to workout to burn them off!), people loved the flavor and texture! Some asked what bakery I picked it up at! Fooled them :) Great cake, just lacks appeal!

Snow Pea and Napa Cabbage Slaw

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2005
I was looking for a low fat version of the traditional Asian salad w/ Ramen noodles and this is it! I only used 3/4 lb cabbage, 1 shredded carrot, etc.; I increased the amount of rice wine vinegar to 3 T while keeping the lemon juice and olive oil the same. I will probably add toasted almonds to make it a meal!

Chicken Provolone

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2005
This was hardly a 'creamy wine sauce'; the wine overpowered the entire recipe, the stuffing was dry... what is everyone else tasting? I salvaged the chicken, but I'm still mad about the other wasted ingredients. How could I have gone wrong on such a simple recipe?

Chicken and Bowtie Pasta with Asiago Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2005
This was restaurant quality, but I'd recommend a few changes: a small carton of cream is 2 cups so instead of buying a larger carton for just 1/4 cup more (a bit pricey and I'd rather not have leftover cream to cook w/ b/c of its high fat content) do not add all of the pasta; a whole bouillon is quite acceptable - who's really using 1/4 of it?! I didn't have prosciutto, but it really needs that flavor. I added peas and it completed the meal. Think ahead and reuse the same pots to make fewer dishes!

Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2005
The variation that I grew up on included sauteing the onion and 1 small green pepper (adds beautiful color) in the butter; 1 can creamed style corn and 1 can whole kernel corn. I'd encourage you to try these modifications. This is quite the Thanksgiving side dish! Note: start sauteing in an oven safe pan so you can bake it without having to dirty a casserole dish!

April's Chicken Fried Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2005
I don't know what makes this recipes SO good (it's just rice and soy sauce flavors!), but it is! Thanks for giving me a recipe that I'll be making over and over using lots of veggies. You won't even need to write this recipe down - do it once and it's a breeze the next time b/c you improvise as you go.

Chicken Garlic Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2006
I used a homemade whole wheat dough w/ herbs, which attributed to the flavor of this pizza - regular dough may be too bland. The only thing I wish was different is the flavor of the chicken; it needs a little something. My husband didn't care for this b/c he's a "sauce guy", but I loved it. I recommend 3 T butter, 3 cloves garlic and sliced (instead of diced) roma tomatoes. Will make mini pizzas just for me next time!

Scalloped Potatoes II

Reviewed: May 7, 2006
These were tasty, but they lacked appeal. I would never serve guests w/ this. Why did mine turn out w/ lumps?! I'll look for another recipe that comes out smoother, but has the same flavor.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: May 24, 2006
This is very good, but I'll continue to look for a better sauce... needs to be thicker/syrup-y. Omitted cooking wine b/c Rachel Ray says you should only cook w/ wine you'd drink! (and I concur)
