Pizza Pinwheels

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
WAY easy, and super quick appetizer or quick side to take to a pot-luck or serve at home for hungry people that can't wait for the main dish, haha. this one is also easilly modified to suit anyone's taste. pizza is something you can add anything you prefer to. although i did not add any extra ingredients the first time (aside from extra cheese), next time around i am going to throw some diced onions, green peppers & olives in. i also used the "mini" pepperoni slices so it rolled easier. the bake time (maybe my oven isn't as hot or something) did not seem to get them cooked all the way through, so i had to throw them in again...just watch the bake time and make sure they don't end up doughy! but this is a cool twist on pizza-like appetizers and one i will continue to make.

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2013
I can't give this less than a 5. Even though I thought the red pepper amount was a wee bit too much (& i LOVE spicy!), hubby is still raving over these & devouring... Total winner for a recipe! No complaint on his end... Perfect bake time, perfect taste- WILL be making these again! Only thing i did different was top w/ a bit of bbq sauce & broil for 3-5 min on lower heat after the sauce topping. Turned out PERFECT! Applause for the perfect meatball recipe!!! Many thanks... :)

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2012
I LOVE the simplicity of these! I also tried this with regular chocolate chips instead of semisweet. Both turned out really well. Then I took the advice of rolling some in some coconut, and some in crushed walnuts and almonds- they were all very good. Makes a great, easy treat to give out in small gift bags on holidays or special occasions or even for a dessert platter at a potluck. Thanks for sharing!

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2012
Very impressed with how quick & easy this was, and how well it turned out! I was skeptical on having a dough crust that did not involve rise time with yeast, but it was delicious and used simple common ingredients in our kitchen. One thing I had to opt for was regular white flour because I did not have bread flour on hand. I also added some italian seasonings, garlic, etc.. to the dough and brushed it with some olive oil topped with fresh grated parmesean for a twist before baking the second time i made it. That turned out great! I have yet to use a pizza stone because ours is packed away but have a feeling it would be even better of an outcome. But everyone has loved it and it has been devoured. Guests have told me it is better than the Digiorno or other frozen pizzas. Thanks for sharing this! :)

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
This recipe is AWESOME! Everyone ate it up the minute it came out of the oven & begged for seconds... I had to make a second batch for leftovers! Only thing i did different was substitute lemon juice for lime since i had no lime & we are cheese lovers, so i put a bit of jack cheese in with the cheddar. This is one I'm asked to make all the time... We love it!!

Campbell's® Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: May 24, 2013
This recipe is awesome- it is a classic and there is nothing to complain about, AT ALL! I did do one or two things different... first, I have had this before with fresh cut green beans, and honestly, we prefer canned. The texture and formation after baking comes out a lot better and more edible. Something about fresh cut and cooked green beans makes it taste funny, so I recommend canned. We also really dislike mushrooms, so we use either cream of chicken or cream of celery soup- both work very well if you are not a mushroom fan. What totally makes the dish, besides the creamy inside, is the French fried onions for a crispy topping. DO NOT skip out on those! Be generous and coat it up!! I've also added in bacon bits to the filling in the past- YUM!!! Classic dish, you really can't go wrong with this one. (I should learn to take a photo to post before serving some of the dishes I review on here... seems by the time I want to review and post a photo- there is virtually NO leftovers or even crumbs to photograph! Now, THAT is when you know you have a keeper for a recipe!)

Cheesy Potato Casserole from Ore-Ida®

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2015
Super easy and great for picky eaters. We have been making this for years and everyone loves it. It goes quickly at potlucks, but also keeps well for leftovers (if there are any). My only suggestion, is layering the ingredients & adding about 1/4 cup of milk to the soup/sour cream mixture (which is otherwise VERY thick). I place a layer of hashbrowns first, then spoon a layer of the mixture on top, repeating layers. Seems to hold together better and cook more evenly. It can also be quite bland without adding some extra spices, so I usually add some garlic powder, onion powder and whatever else to taste into the soup/sour cream/milk mixture. And for cheese lovers- sprinkling a layer of cheese on top, over the crushed cornflakes is a nice addition. This is a great recipe to make ahead of time and bake when ready- very hearty comfort food.

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2015
This recipe was EXACTLY what I was looking for! I was highly disappointed in some other "high-rated" or overly complex recipes. A simple sugar cookie is best, especially with good flavor & dough easy to work with for cutting shapes. My cousin is autistic, and I chose this recipe due to the simplicity. He had a total BLAST making these! The dough was a great consistency to easily cut shapes. I only recommend rolling the dough to about 1/4-1/2 inch thick & only baking until slightly golden-brown so they will still come out somewhat soft instead of crunchy. These were easy to make, they were easy to roll & cut shapes, and most important- they turned out looking very nice for decorating & also tasted great! This one is a keeper for me, and my cousin who loves to bake. I suggest anyone who is looking for a simple & great tasting/decorating cookie try this recipe out- especially if you have younger or a special-needs child who is eager to impress others with a fantastic cookie! :)

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
this recipe is a keeper! similar to another i have tried, but i liked how this one added bread crumbs to top the fliets. the pecans were also a nice touch! i had to add a tad bit more honey to my mixture because the mustard was really overpoweing it. but overall, this was pretty quick, simple and very delicious.

Halibut Supreme

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
great recipe! although it was a little rich, it was still very good. we eat a lot of halibut living in alaska, so this was a nice alternative to the usual way we'd make it. i'd just recommend adding a bit more spice to the mix. the cayenne was good, but didn't seem like it was enough spice-wise. regardless, with tweaking a little here and there and adding more spices, this is one that will be a repeat dinner in our house- thank you!

Cheese Ball I

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2015
This was super easy and really good! I thought the entire packet of ranch dressing mix would make it taste overpowering... It didn't, and was great! But it is VERY important to get the "dressing" mix and NOT the "dip" mix! Otherwise, it would be waaaay too salty- I have made that mistake before. I had to omit coating it with pecans, due to someone having an allergy, so I chopped half the amount called for and only added it mixed in to one side. (I made cute flags to label each side.) For a little kick, I added in some diced jalapenos. This was loved and will be a keeper in regular rotation for parties & appetizers!

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
phenominal salad! this has awesome flavor. i used feta cheese (and added a little extra because we love it) so that flavor along with the sweet pear & candied pecans was so good! the dressing was a perfect compliment. when i made this the second time, i used fresh spinach instead of lettuce, and i think that version was even better. next time i will try a mix of both spinach and lettuce. either way, my husband nearly cleans the bowl before anyone else can get any! absolutely a salad worth making on a regular basis!

Easy Bake Fish

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
AWESOME recipe! this was so quick & easy, everyone loved it. we eat a LOT of fish, especially salmon so this was a great new (and super convenient) way to prepare it. the second time around, i also added bread crumbs on top when i baked it and that was a nice, simple touch to a simple dish. i would also recommend putting a dash of garlic salt in with the sauce just to give it a tad more flavor.

Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2014
This was one of the BEST carrot cakes I have ever had! It seemed like a lot of "extra" stuff added, so if you are looking for a very basic carrot cake, this is not the recipe to use. But I found the addition of pineapple, the pineapple juice & coconut to really compliment the taste & the pineapple is what makes it so moist & soft. The batter seemed sort of runny, but it baked & rose perfectly. Everyone who has tried this has asked for the recipe & requested more! The only thing I would suggest- do NOT use all of the frosting! The frosting tasted great, but there was just toooo much of it for the cake. I left the rest in a side dish for others to add more if they wanted. But this is a keeper- thank you for the great recipe!

Little Smokies

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2015
I was originally looking for a recipe that used grape jelly... But am more than glad I tried this one! These were delicious- perfect amount of sauce and the flavor was spot-on. The only change I made, was using onion powder instead of diced onion. I suppose minced instead of diced would have been okay, but something about chunks of onion in the sauce did not seem appealing with such a smooth texture, so I feel satisfied with substituting onion powder and the flavor was still really good. This was super quick & easy. Really convenient to mix up ahead of time & then throw it on to cook later, when ready. I'll be keeping this for upcoming agendas that require quick & easy appetizers or party snacks! Definitely prefer this over some that all for grape jelly. The flavor of the brown sugar & bbq sauce goes perfect with lil' smokies.

Boneless Buffalo Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2013
AWESOME! i have been searching for a great buffalo wing recipe... and this is it (nearly)! after trying another one with a rating for who knows why it was so high... this one was almost SPOT ON! the one small issue (nearly not one at all) was that the cook time was too low for me. i had 1"x1"x1/2" cuts and they took about 10-11 minutes to get golden brown & done- maybe it is my deep dryer?? but the only thing i can suggest is just to watch the deep fryer, otherwise, this recipe is nearly perfect! adjust hot sauce & butter ratio to your liking and this is soooo close to what you would find served at a restaurant. thank you for a great recipe, BETTYCOOK! :)

Chef John's Sausage & Shrimp Jambalaya

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2013
Well, i looked at more than one recipe- this one seemed to be key w/ ingredients... But i also followed advice of other reviewers. Came out WONDERFUL... with a few adjustments... First- ADD GARLIC! 1-2 cloves minced is perfect. I did use white rice as a preference in taste & time- minute rice added (cooked) in when adding shrimp is perfect!! Can't really place brown rice on this one- jumbalaya is a more hearty dish & brown instead of white rice makes me feel it would not fit well. Due to spice preferences- i also added a wee bit more cayenne & pepper. Adjustments to the salt are definitely as stated! Adjust salt & peppers to taste! You don't want a salty dish (the sausage has enough salt) and you dont want a dish too spicy to eat! Adjust everything to preference. That is key to a great recipe like this. Thanks to Chef John! This is a keeper- just needs adaptation for each cook's preferences. :)

Quick Potato Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2014
I scaled this down, for smaller portions. It was great, minus an ingredient or two. It really HAS to be tweaked. Cucumber is interesting, but I prefer pickles or relish. More flavor than a tasteless cucumber. I substituted pimentos for tomatoes. Do not prefer celery- omitted that. And used all diced onion instead of green onions. Good recipe, but I think some things need to be adjusted or replaced.

Italian Breaded Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2014
This was not bad... But somewhat bland. Followed the recipe nearly to a 'T', but it REALLY needs some enhanced flavor of some sort. I'm still confused as to why the directions say to sauté the garlic then set aside for "another use"? Wasted garlic doing that... But these need some garlic or onion salt, before coating with the egg wash. The coating was great- so was cooking time. They did come out near perfect, only thing lacking was flavor, as they really were quite bland. I also think this recipe calls for WAY too much eggs/bread crumbs! Wasted about 2 eggs & nearly a cup of bread crumbs. I would suggest using only 1-2 eggs & 3/4 cup bread crumbs, along with adding some onion or garlic salt pre-egg wash on the chops before coating & cooking. One thing I did different, and am glad, was throwing the chops back in the bread crumb mix after browning them on the frying pan, before placing them in the oven. They would have come out quite soggy & even more bland if I had not thought to re-coat with the bread crumb mixture before baking. Otherwise, this was a nice change in pace for pork chops! We did enjoy it, but just felt it could have used more flavor. And the cooking time was pretty spot-on... Any longer & they would have been much too dry. So we will keep this & make it again, just adding a few changes to spices/flavoring next time.

Savory Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2012
We were impressed with this recipe, different from how we'd usually make pork chops. However, the sauce was quite runny, even with simmering longer than 20 minutes. For the chops to be tender, I had to simmer for at least 30-45 minutes. I agree with other reviews that adding a bit of flour to the sauce would do well to thicken it up a bit so it isn't as runny. I did not have any marmalade (next time I will make sure I have it to try again), but they still turned out very tastey. I also added some garlic powder in with the other spices for coating- I felt it was missing something and that was a perfect compliment in flavor. We really liked the dish and are eager to try it again with marmalade and adding some flour to the sauce to thicken it up a bit. Only questionable issue was the cook time, which seems to vary based on reading other reviews. Overall, these turned out to be very good, and this is a dish I will make again.
