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 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!

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!

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!!

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.

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.

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! :)

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... :)

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!

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! :)

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!

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!)

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.

Kim's Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2013
I made this cut in half to start... but GREAT! only thing I don't agree with is adding sugar. I am not a fan of a SWEET macaroni salad (adding sweet relish would be good enough in place of sugar). so I skipped the sugar. everything else came out wonderful! only other changes I made- I added the sauce ingredients to taste (the mayo seemed off, like it was not measured right...). I also added a pinch more pepper, and a pinch of paprika. what I LOVE in a good macaroni salad is diced cheddar cheese... so I diced up about 1/2 - 3/4 cup cheddar and threw that in- YUM! also, no jalapenos for this one. just doesn't fit. I diced up 1/2 a green bell and that worked well, along with some shredded carrot. also used black pepper instead of white. but the pepper is still needed. great recipe, but just needs a little TLC to fit personal preferences/tastes.

Tacos in Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
this was such a creative twist on tacos + stuffed shells! very easy to make, but i give it 4 stars because making it the first time, it lacked taco flavor. the second time around i added in taco seasoning to the meat & cream cheese mixture. i also recommend softening the cream cheese before adding it in with the ground beef. it isn't necessary to coat the shells in butter, so i also skipped that the second time around and they still came out great. another recommendation i would make (based on taste preferences) is to add some diced tomatos, olives, green onion, etc... to top them off. great twist on tacos and good, creative recipe!

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2013
The recipe is a real good one... Until it came down to the sugar. Macaroni salad should NOT have that amount of sugar!! I only made half the recipe- every other ingredient as called for. From there I added 1/2 Tbs. sugar as needed to aquire desired taste. DO NOT add the full amount of sugar called for unless you want a sickeningly SWEET mac salad! I think its nearly a better alternative to skip sugar all together & use some sweet relish. Otherwise, a good, decent mac salad... I also diced up some cheddar cheese & threw it in for a personal preference- turned out wonderful & I wish I had made the full amount after seeing how fast it was devoured!! Will absolutely make again- just no sugar. Substituting with sweet relish is a better, more appetizing option. Or just leave out the sugar- it really does not need it (especially if you are using Miracle Whip which is on the sweeter side). UPDATE: after making this several more times, everyone has agreed the sugar called for is outrageous. We start with 1Tbsp. and add more as needed. Also, adding in 3-4 hard boiled eggs is a very nice twist! And we substituted peas for the celery while leaving out green bell pepper. This is a dish that always disappears, and very popular. Just needs some minor changes.

Toasted Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2013
Delicious! Instead of cutting it into individual slices, I halved the loaf lengthwise & cut each half into quarters, for a total of 8 pieces... a bit easier than a bunch of smaller rounds.I followed ingredients, but not exact measurements (eyeballed most & added all to taste). The olive oil, however, does not add a lot, so I barely added any of it. The butter already has enough oil in it, & even though 2 tsp. is not a whole lot of olive oil, I just didn't feel it was necessary- & the bread still came out very tasty! For the garlic, I added a bit of minced garlic out of a jar w/ a bit of the liquid & also a pinch of garlic powder. I had no mozzarella on hand, so I substituted grated parmesan & sprinkled that on before broiling, so I didn't have to remove the bread to add cheese & place it back in another 2-3 minutes to finish; an easy one-time broil keeping an eye on it & took it out as the top & sides began to turn golden-brown. The flavor of all the ingredients combined turned out delicious... Fresh out of the over was the perfect compliment to our spaghetti dinner! Will definitely make this again, but next time I'll use the fresh, grated mozzarella instead of the parmesan. Thanks for the quick, easy & flavorful recipe! SO much better than store-bought!!!

Cheese and Sausage Stuffed Zucchini

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2013
First time trying stuffed zucchini- GREAT recipe! Only 4 out of 5 stars because of two small preferences. You don't need to pre-cook the zucchini in the microwave- add another 10-15 min. onto baking time (nuke it to about 450 degrees during that time) will make it perfect. It did not overcook or alter the stuffing at all. Granted, there was only two of us & we used half of a large zucchini (13"Lx4"Wx3"D) & that was enough for 2 of us, & a lunch left for tomorrow. (Plus, any leftover stuffing can be baked, too, perfect for a side or leftovers for breakfast w/ toast the following morning!)Hollow out a generous portion. Don't layer- mix ALL stuffing ingredients together- MUCH better! We also added in some of the "guts" of what we scraped out to the stuffing... SO good! Be generous with seasonings. Tofu or ground beef would also work very well in place of sausage. During the last 5-10 minutes (on broil), top with some bread crumbs & a bit more shredded cheese... PERFECT! A bit of marinara sauce is also quite a compliment for serving. This was an excellent recipe, & VERY good! Just adjust some things here & there to taste, I really recommend mixing all stuffing ingredients instead of layering... this will be a repeat in our house, especially with the fresh zucchini out of the garden! thank you! :)
