Aunt Janet's Pumpkin Dump Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
I made this for teachers, in two 8x8 inch disposable pans. After I made the pumpkin mixture, I poured it from a large (8 cup) measuring cup, evenly into each pan. I then sprinkled the cake mix over each one (and left about 1/4 of the bag of mix because it seemed like too much). I used 1/2 cup butter in EACH 8 inch pan, and other dump cake recipes I've seen call for 1 cup butter for a 9x13 pan. It just didn't seem to coat enough with less. Put both in the oven and it took 45 minutes for them to turn golden brown in my oven, which cooks everything in an average amount of time. They turned out very nicely. :-)

Scrambled Egg Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
I had to bring an egg dish to MOPS today and didn't have a lot of time. These egg muffins were a HIT, and SO easy to make. People were asking how I made them. The muffins weren't "pretty", but they were good. :) (I used bacon instead of sausage, and Tastefully Simple Onion Onion instead of actual onion. Left the green pepper out because not everyone likes green pepper.) It was really good!

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2007
The flavor was delicious, but mine didn't turn out crisp on the outside like it should. It had the texture of a pancake. I'm giving it 4 stars for flavor. If the texture was there, it would have been 5 stars.

Graham Cracker Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
Change the sugar to 1/2 cup and add a teaspoon of vanilla. Sweet and perfect. Not bland at all that way.

Simple Mexican Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2007
Made recipe according to directions. Came out dry and slightly chewy, even when cooked the proper amount of time. Only made it because I didn't have tomato sauce for my favorite mexican rice recipe on here (Mexican Rice II). Thought I would try this one since I had tomato paste. Sorry, but I won't make this again.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
Very good. I followed the recipe to a tee, except for adding some fresh minced garlic with the onion. Had a good flavor. It's a keeper. :-)

Emily's Excellent Taco Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
I like the idea of the recipe. Simple, quick, and a twist on traditional taco salad. Just be careful to pick a chili that you love. I bought Hormel Vegetarian Chili and didn't care for the taste of it. Next time I will use my own leftover chili to make this recipe.

Grandma's Five Cup Salad

Reviewed: May 13, 2006
I grew up eating this salad! A wonderful way to make it is to use vanilla yogurt instead of sour cream. It adds a bit of sweetness without overpowering it. (My mom said she has made it with pina colada yogurt and that was really good.) Whenever I make this to bring places, I leave out the coconut because there are many people who do not like coconut. They always rave on it and it's so simple to make :-).

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2005
DELICIOUS! My husband, who won't touch zucchini anything, devoured it! I didn't change a thing about the recipe, but next time will cook it in a bundt pan for an hour at 375 degrees. This recipe is almost identical to an apple cake recipe I make that is cooked in a bundt pan. Will make this regularly now.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2005
The flavor of this is great! Like many others here, I didn't have a packet of taco seasoning when I needed it so checked here. I'm so glad I did! I mixed all the seasonings together in a plastic bag, cutting the amount of chili powder and red pepper flakes in half, and using regular salt instead of sea salt. I added the entire amount of seasoning to a pound of ground beef that had just been browned along with a 1/2 cup of water. I mixed very well and allowed to cook on medium stiring occassionally for about 10 minutes. Next time though, I will completely omit the red pepper flakes. Even using only 1/8 of a teaspoon has left my mouth on fire.

Melt In Your Mouth Blueberry Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2005
I wanted something tasty to make with the blueberries I had. This recipe was just three stars in my opinion. First of all, it's a lot of work to make with many different steps and dishes used. Secondly, when it was done and I tried some, it didn't taste as good as I expected. It wasn't bad, but tasted like something I could have gotten from a mix. It was moist, but the cake is not very flavorful. I don't think the blueberries make up much for what the cake seems to lack. (I had cream cheese frosting in my pantry, so I added some to the top to see if it would taste better. It didn't help, and added an odd flavor.)

All Day Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2005
I read the reviews before making this, and decided to give it a try. I cooked the mac 'n' cheese on low for 4 hours in the crockpot, instead of 5 or 6, and it was still too mushy. When I mixed it after it was done cooking, the cooked egg pieces were all through it- ewww~! I thought the egg would blend seamlessly with the other ingredients, but it didn't. My 6 year old daughter didn't like this and she normally loves mac. My husband wouldn't even eat it, because he said it's not really appetizing looking and he saw the egg and didn't want to try it. The mac 'n' cheese was very easy to prepare and that is the only good thing I can say about it. I made this to the tee and cannot figure out why so many love it. To each his own.

Wacky Mac

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2004
This is missing something... can't quite figure out what that would be. Maybe some type of sauce would help, or adding some grated cheese. It's bland, even with the chili and spices. I added stewed tomatoes while cooking, but that didn't help much. My husband felt the same way about this recipe. It's filling though, and makes a lot. We will eat it leftover, but I don't think I will make this again.

Cinnamon Pancakes in a Jar

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2004
I made a mistake and tried to combine the whole amount of dry mix with the wet ingredients. I had a lot of things going on while I was making these. I didn't realize, until the batter looked like cookie batter, that the recipe said to combine 1 1/3 cups dry mix with the wet ingredients. I added a lot of milk to try and thin it out. It got sticky and was very thick. It made thick pancakes. The flavor was good though. I'm giving it four stars because I think the liquid ingredients should correspond with the dry ingredients. I also added 1 teaspoon of vanilla and I think it added a lot more flavor than the pancakes would have had.

A Good Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2004
This is definitely easy and good! I read some of the reviews and used a couple of suggestions. I pounded the chicken breasts flat. I just sprinkled a bit of seasoned salt and garlic powder over them, so it wouldn't be overly salty. I didn't have onion powder. I added a half a handful of frozen chopped onion and a teaspoon of minced garlic to the melted butter, per another reviewers suggestion. It flavored the butter, which added extra flavor to the chicken. I drizzled the flavored butter over the chicken when I served it and it was so good! I served with rice pilaf and veggies. My husband, daughter and I all loved it!

Crazy Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2004
This cake is good because it uses readily available ingredients and doesn't take long to prepare. However, it is different from a regular cake. It's not as dense, and is moist to the point of almost being wet. The chocolate flavor is not as strong as I like, but I think adding chocolate frosting to the top of the cake or chocolate chips to the batter would help that. I didn't like mixing the ingredients in the 9x13 pan as it was more difficult to fully mix the ingredients than it would have been in a bowl. My favorite will always be, "Hersheys Deep Dark Chocolate Cake". That's what I make my family if we need a chocolate fix!

Creamy Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2004
I made this tonight because I had some extra ingredients that fit this recipe. I changed two things. First, I added a cup of leftover sour cream, some seasoned salt and pepper to cook with the soup mixture. The next change was that I used 5 leftover frozen chicken patties that I had, microwaved them and chopped them up. I added them at the end. The vegetable I used was brocolli and I did use the mozzarella cheese. My husband, daughter and I all really liked this meal. I think the chicken patties actually added a lot of good flavor, and that it would have been kind of bland with just regular chicken. This is so easy that I will definitely make it again!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2004
Can I give this 10 stars?! This was sooo good and easy, easy, to make! I used Sweet Baby Ray's Barbeque sauce which is our favorite. I had my mom over for dinner and she asked for the recipe right away. She was shocked how easy it was. My husband and daughter loved it too. I'm so happy that I found this recipe. UPDATE- Accidently bought regular pork ribs this time, the kind that have bones. What a mess trying to get all the bones out! Will be more careful to make sure what I buy is boneless. It was still just as good though, except for the tiny bones we hit!

Easy Bake Brisket

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2004
This was awful! I used a 4.5 pound brisket as was called for in the recipe. It had the taste and texture of a leather shoe. I followed the recipe exactly as it was stated. My mom said that meat like this should be boiled first for about an hour and then slow cooked in the oven with the ingredients. It makes the meat much more tender, which is how we make ribs really tender. Maybe it would taste better if it cooked longer, but I won't make this again.
