Cheater's Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 19, 2004
These were excellent! I made a few changes, left out the olives as I don't care for them, and added shredded chicken mixed with a packet of taco seasoning. On the advice of some other reviewers, I added extra enchilada sauce in the middle layers to keep it from drying out, and it worked great. We had leftovers only because with all the extra I added it filled my 9x13 dish to the brim! But I bet by the end of the week there won't be much left. Thanks for the recipe!

Steak N Gravy

Reviewed: May 19, 2004
Very good and well received by my family, even the kids! I made mine with cube steaks (although I would be interested to try it with venison someday if the "boys" went out hunting, or I was feeling extravagant enough to buy some.) I was a little leary of using canned gravy, but didn't have the time to add the extra step of making my own. However, the richness of the onion and mushroom gave it a very authentic flavor, you could still taste the "canniness" but not very much. I also would recommend to anyone trying this with cube steaks, simmer it for more like 2 hours as mine was still pretty tough after 1 hour. I'm planning on trying it in my slow cooker the next time I make it, and using canned consumme to make the gravy. All in all, an excellent dinner, I wouldn't serve it to company because it's not the prettiest presentation in the world, but around the table over a pile of mashed potatoes it really satisfied.

Taco Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: May 12, 2004
Excellent recipe, served mine with french fries and a green salad. My only complaint was, when I looked at the amount of ingredient for the breading, I thought no way will this coat 2 lbs. of chicken. So I doubled the cornmeal and flour, thank goodness I did, I just barely had enough at that, but I only had the one package of taco seasoning. So the spicing was pretty subtle and needed a little salt added at the table. But my two-year-old loved it! So I think when I make it again I might try 1-1/2 packets of seasoning so the flavor is still mild enough for the kids to enjoy but a little stronger for the adult's palates. I also think I will bake the strips instead of frying them (although the coating stayed on beautifully during the frying, which is a rarity in my experience.) Thanks for the recipe!

Chocolate Ganache Icing

Reviewed: May 10, 2004
DELICIOUS rich and chocolately, and sooo easy to make! I made mine w/o the brandy as it was for a cake for my mom, and she hates alcohol. Still tasted great!

Golden Lemon Pound Cake

Reviewed: May 9, 2004
Very good! I took another reviewer's suggestion and included an extra 2 Tbs. each of butter and lemon juice. It came out a great texture, though still fairly subtle on the lemon flavor. Since I put ganache icing on it, the only bites that really tasted lemony were from the "inside" part w/ no icing. It would probably help to add more zest to the batter as well. All in all though, I am pleased and will be hanging on to this recipe!

Easy Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: May 7, 2004
I pretty much did my own thing on the chicken/soup part of the recipe so I won't even comment on that part, but the dumplings were a disaster. I doubled the recipe to feed 8, and should have kept the same amount of dumpling batter for the original recipe for 4. I had to throw a big lump of it out. They were gummy, pratically runny, even after the recommended cooking time with the lid securely in place the whole time. They pretty much tasted like cooked flour. Sorry, not my idea of a good dumpling.

The Amazing Swedish Meatball

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2004
Would've like this recipe a lot better without the pork, but then I'm not a huge fan of pork anyway. May try them again with all beef. My two-year-old loved them, though!

Pan Sauce Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2004
Very good flavor and minimal work! I decreased the wine by half and made up the difference with extra broth, as I was serving this to kids and didn't want the flavor to be too strong. My only complaint was that the flour mixture lumped up and I had to strain most of it out the sauce, which subsequently didn't thicken up much. Otherwise it got good reviews all around. (The kids didn't love it, but they did eat it.) I served it over linguine with broccoli and toasted french bread. The pan sauce tasted great on the broccoli, too!

Texas Beef Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2004
Very good! I did make a few changes ro the recipe, most notably that 2 1/2 C of liquid looked very inadequate in the bottom of my 6-qt. slow cooker, so I ended up using 3 whole cans of beef broth + 1 C water. With that, 1 can of spicy V8 was still plenty hot enough to give me a little heartburn (and I love spicy foods.) I also used frozen mixed veggies instead of canned, and an hour before the end of the cooking time I added the V8, 2 cubed potatoes, and a can of diced tomatoes. P.S. I just made this for the second time using 2 lbs. of meat and more seasoned salt/pepper and I AM IN LOVE with this recipe! Thanks a million!

Mongolian Beef I

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2004
Made it for my family and my dad had 4 helpings! Instead of just putting 1 T of soy sauce over the beef strips, I marinated them in 1/2 C soy, plus the garlic and cornstarch. Then before I stir-fried it, I strained off most of the excess soy sauce. Worked fine, but I did have to add a little extra cornstarch at the end to get the sauce to thicken. This is definitely a keeper, thanks for the recipe!

Bran Flakes Muffins with Raisins

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2004
Very good! Not as bran-y as your typical raisin bran muffins. (Or as my brother put it, "these don't taste like health food.") Quick and easy to prepare, too. However I only got nine relatively small muffins out of this amount of batter, I would double the ingredients when making it again.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2004
Very good and easy to prepare. I made this to put into layered burritos, but I think if I were to serve it as a side dish, I would probably added some mexican stewed tomatoes or something to it to give it even more flavor. P.S. For those of you getting brown colored rice instead of orange, this may be because the cumin is burnt; try adding the spices along with the broth and tomato sauce, instead of while the rice is browning.

Firehouse Machaca Taco Filling

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2004
Whatever this is, Machaca it ain't. I was very disappointed.

Baked BBQ Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2004
Very good concept, though I will be making a few changes the next time I make it. First of all, though I LOVE the chicken coating mixture, there is way too much salt. I will cut the salt and pepper out of the egg mixture entirely, and just use what goes in with the flour. Also I thought they lost something being baked with the BBQ sauce, they were awfully gloppy after just having achieved the lovely crunchy texture from the frying. I will just fry 'em up and dip in sauce next time. Otherwise an awesome recipe! I'm going to try the coating on steak strips too!

Flat Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2004
I don't know if I did something wrong but these did not come out with any kind of consistency for rolling out, the batter was very sticky (as my 2-year-old described it, egg-gloppy.) So I dropped it in by spoonfuls. The dumplings did have a nice flavor, but they were pretty gummy even at the point when they were as done as they were going to get. May try again, but I was a little disappointed in them tonight.

Maria's Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2004
This was pretty good, a bit bland, but I did have to add a lot of liquid so that might have something to do with it. My toddler ate enthusiactically so I can't complain, but I think I will try a different recipe next time I'm in the mood for dumplings. I am keeping this one on file, though; with a little personalization it could be great.

French Onion Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2004
These were OK. A bit too much like meatloaf (which I hate with a passion) to suit my tastes, but my family enjoyed them. Good recipe for kids that like onions.

Taco Bake I

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2004
Delish! I jazzed it up a bit by adding diced onion and a can of diced green chiles to the seasoned beef mixture. I also added a layer of crushed tortilla chips on the bottom of the baking dish. (Don't recommend this, as it makes the chips gummy.) Five minutes before the baking time ended, I topped with chopped fresh tomato, green onion, and more green chiles. Thanks for the inspiration, this one's definitely a keeper!

Bean Potato Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2004
Good flavor, interesting mix of spicy and mild. I took another reviewer's suggestion and sauteed the cubes potatoes rather than mashing them. My only complaint was that they came out rather dry this way. Will tinker with the recipe a little more if I make it again.

Ranch Crispy Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2004
Very good! I gave it a four only because the way it was written was bland. I used a full cup of breadcrumbs upon making it the second time, and also 1/4 tsp. of cayenne. DELICIOUS this way. My toddler ate like there was no tomorrow. I only wish I'd come across this method a long time ago (or been smart enough to think of it myself!) because I love ranch chicken but with the actual dressing poured over it's pretty gloppy.
