Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2014
Nothing weird at all about these! They really are delicious, and even better with homemade tortillas. I really didn't see the point of having the sweet potatoes and bean mixture separate, so I just mixed them together before filling the tortillas. These are phenomenal fried like chimichangas, topped with salsa and sour cream. Yum!

Chili Relleno Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2014
7/7 of my family members that tried this loved it. I did make a few changes to the recipe, so I can't say that I would have given it 5 stars as written. Instead of canned, I used 8 average-sized poblano peppers that were roasted, peeled, stems and seeds removed, and cut into wide strips. I also used about 1.5 lbs of pepper jack instead of the 2 lbs of cheddar, which I'm sure lent itself to a more authentic Mexican flavor, and probably made it seem less overwhelmingly cheesy. I also added an extra 2 TBSP of flour and about 1 tsp of baking powder to the batter to make it a little more fluffy and less custardy. If I had used canned sauce, which I didn't because I always make my own, I think 1 can would have been plenty! This was as close as you'll get to chili rellenos without actually making chili rellenos. I'll definitely be making it again!

Peanut Noodles

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2013
These are delicious with no changes to the recipe. I've been making peanut noodles for years, and these were just as good as the ones I usually make.

Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
Absolutely delicious and so easy to throw together quickly. I did reduce the sugar to 2 cups, because I thought 2 and 1/2 cups sounded like way too much. I also increased the salt to about 3/4 tsp since 1/4 tsp didn't seem like enough. I've been cooking and baking for 20 years, so if I give a recipe 5 stars, it's because it deserves it. BTW, I used this recipe to make cake pops, and it works great. Thanks!

Chocolate French Toast

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
This was pretty good. I added even more chocolate flavor to it by making chocolate bread the night before. If you will heat up some of the milk first before whisking in the cocoa powder, you won't have any problem getting the cocoa mixed in. I added vanilla to the recipe, which makes it taste and smell even better. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Pumpkin Spice Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
PERFECT! I followed the recipe except for not adding the allspice since I didn't have any. Bread was the perfect texture, perfectly moist, perfectly spiced. No need to look further. I'll be using this one from now on. Thanks for sharing!

Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
I mixed everything together and then put it in the casserole dish. I wanted a little more flavor, so I cooked the chicken breasts in salted water and used rice with Mexican seasoning (garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, and chicken boullion powder) and added about 1 TBSP chili powder to the casserole. I left out the onion and used only cheddar cheese. I added a few handfuls of coarsely crushed tortilla chips to give the casserole a little more structure. I stuck the casserole in the microwave for about 6 minutes and served with refried beans. My husband and kids liked it, so it's a keeper. Thanks for sharing!

Fortune Cookies I

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
These were good, and most impotantly, fun to make! We followed one reviewer's suggestion and added a little melted butter to the batter. It still needed to be thinned down with a little water. We ended up using non-stick spray on the cookie sheet for easier removal. This lessened the baking time by about a minute. My daughter had fun coming up with "fortunes". Her little sister got one that said "Always wear clean underwear". Good times!

Restaurant Style Beef and Broccoli

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2011
Delicious! I used chicken instead of beef and didn't have sherry, so I used fruit juice instead. If you want to use frozen broccoli like I did, thaw it first and use a little extra cornstarch so the sauce won't be too runny after you add the broccoli. Don't add the thawed broccoli to the pan until the very end or it might overcook and turn to mush.

Sesame Anise Melts

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
A wonderfully simple cookie with big flavor. Without any other flavors to compete with, the sesame and anise both come through boldly. The only change I made to the recipe was substituting vegetable shortening for the lard. If you're a fan of sesame and anise, these will be a treat for you! Thanks for sharing!

Polish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
Delicious dumplings! So much easier than rolling out dough. I didn't follow the recipe for the soup, but instead used 6 TBSP each of butter and flour to make a roux, then added water, chicken boullion powder, pepper, and a little onion powder. I cooked carrots, potatoes, and dumplings in this thick gravy-like broth, then added cooked, cubed chicken breasts. Total comfort food. Yummy!

Lemon Pound Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
This is a wonderful recipe! I didn't have enough shortening, so I used softened regular margarine instead. I also used a little butter flavoring. The nutmeg gives it just that little bit of something extra. I took a half tub of store bought vanilla icing, mixed with about a TBSP lemon juice and a little lemon extract and drizzled over the top. Yummy! The texture of the cake was just right. It was not dry at all. This is a keeper. Thanks for sharing.

Famous Chicken Adobo

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2010
I had never tried chicken adobo before, but decided to give it a chance. DELICIOUS! It doesn't get much easier than this. I used 5 lbs of chicken thighs with skin removed. I used 1 cup of regular soy sauce & 1 cup vinegar. I omitted the sliced onion since most of my kids don't care for it and used onion powder instead. I only used about 1 tsp of pepper. This was one of those dishes where I couldn't stop saying "Mmmm" while I was eating it! Even though I didn't use reduced sodium soy sauce, I didn't find the finished dish to be too salty at all. I did add about 2 TBSP brown sugar. This was fabulous served over rice with steamed broccoli on the side. YUMMY! Oh yah, most of my kids really liked it, especially my pickiest one!

Chocolate Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
Very good muffins. Make them much more healthy by using white whole wheat flour. They're very much like a dense, less-sweet cupcake, which was what I wanted. I didn't add chocolate chips since I wanted these to be a sort of healthy breakfast for my kids, not a dessert. I also cut back a little on the sugar and added some liquid Stevia. I thought 325 was too low of a temp. for muffins, so I baked them at 375 for 18 minutes, and they were perfect. Kids liked them! Will keep this recipe. Thanks!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
You will definitely want to replace about 1/2 the soy sauce with water if you don't want it to be super salty. If you're in a hurry just use some popcorn chicken from the deli or freezer section.

Baked Oatmeal II

Reviewed: May 14, 2010
I had never eaten baked oatmeal before, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but this was really good. Some of my daughters have told me they eat this when they sleep over at their friends' house, so I thought I'd give it a try. I did 1 and 1/2 times the recipe, which was enough to serve 7 children and myself with a little left over. I pretty much followed the recipe, except I subbed 1/4 cup canola oil spread for 1/4 cup of the butter and added a pinch of nutmeg and a dash of cloves. I also used 3/4 cup of brown sugar instead of 1 and 1/2 cups and added several drops of stevia. The texture is kind of like a soft crumbly cake, but not dry at all. I had mine with milk. A very filling breakfast. Try it!

Seven Layer Magic Bars

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
I took these to "Granny's" for our annual Mother's Day family lunch, and everyone liked them. I replaced the semisweet chips with white chips and doubled the graham crackers. I think I should have perhaps used 3/4 cup of butter instead of only 1/2 cup when I double the graham crackers. My daughter turned the oven off after I put them in the oven, and in the end, I ended up baking them too long, so they were really, really hard to cut, but that was my fault. The taste was fabulous. Kids and adults all liked them very much. I won't be making these often, however, since it comes out to around $10 to make a 9x13 pan of them. I gave them 4 stars because they are very messy to eat, but they're worth making again.

Wacky Cake VIII

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
This recipe for "wacky cake" was in the back of an American Girl book my daughter had. We tried it and thought it was excellent. Last weekend, I made a two-layer 1/2 sheet cake for my husband's boss' appreciation party. I wanted the bottom layer to be chocolate, so I used this no-fail recipe. Moist, chocolately, delicious - a winner every time!

Powdered Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
These are outstanding! I added a little lemon extract since I like a hint of lemon flavor in my sugar cookies. After making a few of them by rolling into balls, I decided to add a little more flour to the dough to see if it would work well for cut-outs...AWESOME! I didn't even have to chill the dough.My cut-outs turned out perfectly...not soft, but not too hard...just perfectly light and crisp. This is a keeper! Thanks for posting!
