Yuck. These tasted like fake dough. Waste of time and money.

Party Pinwheels

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
Yuck. These were like eating a container of cream cheese on a soggy flour tortilla, and I even made homemade ranch seasoning. I made them for a party and they weren't touched. I was embarrassed my name was on them.

Chef John's Sausage & Shrimp Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2012
Excellent! Even after I took out all my husband would not eat. I jokingly said that I made "Jamba" since I left out most of the cumin, used smoked beef sausage, and didn't dare add green pepper so I suspect it's even better with all that added! Next time I will use homemade stock since I had to add in another cup of uncooked rice (cooked on the side in water) to cut the tremendous salt. I loved the fact that this recipe used brown rice too excellent nutritious grain!

Easy Bunny Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2011
I had an old family friend who made this every Easter and have wanted to make one for years. I am so glad I found this! I only used the cutout idea but it was fantastic! I made from scratch a chocolate cake with cream cheese icing and covered the rabbit with coconut and the piped the bow tie, mouth, and nose and finished decorating with colored coconut and pastel M&Ms. I made this for my son's Easter party and it was a huge hit! And so much fun to make. Thanks!

Creamy Hot Cocoa

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
Way Sweet! But so so good. I always try to do the recipe as written for a fair review and next time I will reduce the sugar way down. I will try 1/4-1/2c, the milk and half and half both have sugar too to keep in mind....but even still so much better than the package stuff which is way sweet too.

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
Absolutely Amazing! I made this for Christmas exactly as the recipe is written, as I always try to do first, and then I made this again today, as a request by my husband for his regional meeting luncheon. The first time was really great with simple go to ingredients, but the second time with a little extra energy and personal preferences added....was to die for. The serving dish at the luncheon was all but licked clean. My husband even found one of his crew scraping the serving spoon to ensure all that was to be had was had! Too funny. The second time I made some minor changes. I used approximately 2 lbs fresh green beans which I steamed just shy of perfect since they were going in the oven as well, I used two 8oz blocks of Cabot (absolute hands down best cheese ever) seriously sharp cheddar (whatever reviewer said there was too much cheese would not be able to survive living at my house!) mixing about 4 oz into the beans, I minced my onion so there would be no large bites in my finished casserole, I added several turns of course ground black pepper, added about 1/2-1 t of garlic powder and finally used the French's Onions at my husband's request. The casserole was loved by all and I was finally not the one taking food home from a covered dish! Thank you so much Amy this is my new go to favorite for holidays AND covered dishes!

Jagerschnitzel

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
This was delicious. I used fresh bread crumbs and fresh baby bella mushrooms. Serving it with spaetzle made it the perfect German dish! The pork made excellent sandwiches the next day too which is always a plus! A definite keeper and new family favorite.

Crispy Coconut Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
Awesome! I have made this twice and my husband asks for it almost every other day. My first batch did not get as brown as the picture, but I found that to be ok. My second batch I added more butter and got them real golden, but they were overcooked. So the called for amount of butter was better even though there wasnt thorough browning on both sides. That allowed the coconut to stay moist and yummy. I also didn't cut the pieces as small as the recipe called for since I served this dish as an entree. I served the fingers with honey mustard dipping sauce. This is a keeper and oh so simple it is ready in a flash with items kept in my pantry at all times.

Honey Mustard Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
Outstanding! I served this with the Crispy Coconut Chicken Fingers from this site and it was fantastic. I halved the recipe to 9 servings and it was perfect and was plenty for a dinner for 3, a side salad, and an entree salad. I may have added a little more honey than called for but not much, we like it sweet. My husband said the sauce was restaurant quality!

Chicken Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
This was very good. It came together very quickly and had a great cheese sauce. My husband hates Swiss cheese, and was shocked to find out that was the base of the sauce! I did not add any peppers since my family does not like them but added fresh spinich instead which was fabulous. I will be making this again. The only pitfall was the cleanup. The cheese sauce is a bear to remove from my stainless steel pots.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
This was a very good carrot cake. I had some trouble on the baking time and my cake came out a little too brown for my liking. I was watching it the whole time and the outside browned as the center was still not set. It cooked for quite a bit less than recommended. I used a glass pan and have a gas oven, so it could just be my setup. I did use 1c brown and 1c white, used a little more vanilla, and only had walnuts on hand. Very good overall and we enjoyed the cake.

Spaghetti Carbonara II

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
Out of this world. My husband brought unexpected company home at dinner time and I was terrified since I had planned for us to have leftovers. I would usually have most of the ingredients on hand anyways for this recipe which is a big plus, but I had actually put this on our menu to have this week anyhow so I whipped out the ingredients and hoped it was company worthy AND WOW YES IT WAS!! The guest raved and wanted the recipe! So I didn't have to kill my husband after all. It was creamy and very impressive. I did add 3/4 c warmed heavy cream at the end, I used 4-5 pressed garlic cloves (we are garlic lovers and could have added more for our taste), and I did not have fresh parsley so I thinly sliced some scallions for the same effect and it presented wonderfully plus added a nice subtle onion. A definite keeper and a new family favorite. My husband loves bacon and eggs as well as spaghetti, so this dish is a match made in heaven. Thanks for the recipe!

Chocolate Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
Fantastic, Quick, and Impressive!! This pie fit the bill for me! It is smooth and silky. I of course wanted a pie at 7pm at night and went in search of a dessert to match the ingredients I had on hand. This was almost perfect. I did have to use self rising flour and chocolate chips, but the result was amazing. I used a graham cracker crust which I think really made it almost like smores and I whipped up fresh whipped cream and spread it atop the entire pie! I finished with grated chocolate on top and WOW my husband and I both savored every bite. I put it in the freezer to "chill" for 2 hours, since of course I was not going to bed without a slice. But after I cut it I put it in the fridge to finish chilling and cannot wait for dessert tonight. I put it in my favorites cook book and I will make it again. Next time with the correct flour and chocolate and see how that works out! But I will stick to the graham cracker crust, I think the regular crust would not be as good as the buttery graham cracker crust! Thanks Debbie!!

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
Excellent Go To Meal! Why would anyone buy canned sloppy joes??? This is so easy and my husband loved it! I toasted the sesame buns and the meal was delish! Be sure to add enough ketchup and water so the mixture has a nice sauce.

Banana Coconut Loaf

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
This bread is amazing, very versatile and a great foundation for many variations of quick bread. I was looking for a pep talk for my bland old banana bread recipe. I am honestly not a huge fan of banana bread, but it is my husband’s favorite so I have endured many years of it, but this I actually really enjoy and look forward to. I mainly used vanilla extract (a little more than called for) and did not put the cherries (only do to husband's personal preference), sometimes I toasted the coconut (and added a little more than called for), but not often and no matter how I mixed up the recipe the bread always came out perfect. I baked them in my convection oven and after the first loaf I knew the timing for a perfect outcome. I made over 10 loaves for Christmas and they were an amazing hit. I put them in baked goods gift bags with a personalized label and a huge bouquet of ribbon. I am on my way now to make another loaf - it is by far the best go to quick bread recipe ever. Give it a try, the sky is the limit on this one!
