Mild Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
Sorry...but bland, bland, bland. As I was making it, I kept thinking, where's the kick? Where's the spice? There wasn't one. Thought it would be good for the kiddos, and even they didn't like it.

Crunchy Bagel Chips

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
Delicious! Although, I also cut back a bit on the salt. I had a bag of bagels about to expire on me. I cut each one in half to make a half circle, and then sliced these in half, length-wise to make big half moons, instead of small rounds. (I was in a hurry!). Anyway, turned out just great and were gobbled up by a houseful of teenagers after school. Thanks for sharing.

Easy American Potato and Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2007
I am really sorry...but this was just not good at all. Very dry and flavorless except for the taste of tuna. It was edible (hence, 2 stars instead of 1)...but definitely not memorable.

Tuna Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
It always cracks me up when people rate the recipe and say but here are all the things I changed. Well, I didn't change anything and can tell you as printed, it is what it says it is. A traditional, old-fashioned 1950's tuna casserole. A little bland, but that is why we grew up with the salt and pepper shakers...lol. My family of 6, including one picky rater, one teenager, two 2 y/o, and a somewhat tired husband after a long day at work all ate this without complaint. 4 of the 6 even said, "good dinner". So, I will be keeping it around. No, it's not gourmet...but it is good comfort food and we didn't have any leftovers.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread II

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2007
YUMMY! Made it exactly as printed except for using white chocolate chips instead of reg and pecans instead of walnuts. Not a conscious decision to change the recipe, just wwhat I had on hand in the cupboard. Loved by everyone in the family from the picky 2 year-olds to the teenagers who eat anything not tied down to the hubby who is usually not a sweet bread person.

Chicken Enchilada Casserole II

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2007
I was doubtful, but this was surprisingly yummy. I was looking for a way to use leftover roast chicken and this was a winner. Used medium salsa and the spice kick was just about right. The casserole fed a family of 6 (2 teenage boys included! ha ha) and not a bite was left. Definitely a keeper and easy, easy, easy...threw the whole thing together in about 10 minutes.

Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT! The cardamon is one of the main key ingredients and it is well worth the money because you will be making more than one batch of this in the future if you are a hot drink lover. I made ours sugar-free by subsituting Splenda for the sugar. The key to not getting any remaining graininess in the bottom of your cup is to make sure you blend it well until it is a very fine powder. I found it worked better to blend 2 cups at a time instead of 1. And like others have said, while it is good mixed with water, it is so much better mixed with a mug of hot milk. I have made this 4 times now because friends and family taste it and I end up giving them a sandwich baggie full to take home with them! Thanks for a great recipe.

Texas Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
Not impressed. Sorry. The cumin was overpowering. We will go back to a more vinegar-based coleslaw that includes a kick of hot peppers for our "Texas" version.

Strawberry Bread III

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
Very good recipe. Not as good as the one my grandmother made, but still tasty. I made into small loaves to give to the Sunday School teachers for Christmas gifts and it was enjoyed by all.

Easy Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
Sort of like a King Ranch Casserole with beef. My family loved this. I wasn't quite sure about the layering of ingredients, but it actually turned out quite well. The only thing I might change next time is to save some of the black olives, tomatoes, and green onions to sprinkle on top of the cheese the last five minutes of baking to have a better presentation than just a casserole of melted cheese. Like other reviewers, I added taco seasoning to the beef mixture. My only recommendation is to make sure you make only enough for your family to eat in one sitting. Our re-heated leftovers for lunch the next day did not even compare. I am not sure if the chips soaked up some of the juices or what happened. But, our leftovers were dry and crumbly and just not that good. The night before though, right out of the oven, the casserole was delicious!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
A decent recipe for chicken and dumplings. Very tasty for a quick and easy prep on a day when you need the slow cooker. Like other reviers, I agree that one can of biscuits is more than enough. I flattened each biscuit out and cut into strips hoping they might resemble homemade dumplings when cooked. (Sort of did, but still different). I still like Grandma's recipe a lot better...but for ease of preparation, it's a keeper when you don't have all day to boil and debone a chicken and roll homemade dumplings!

Baked Oatmeal II

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
I guess I didn't read enough of the reviews to discover that this recipe makes more of a soft granola instead of the moist baked oatmeal that you can cut like a lasagna. It was okay, but not great. A little bit over spiced with cinnamon we thought and just not a great texture. Even after pouring milk over it in our bowls and re-heating, it still was too soft to be crunchy, yet also too firm to be soft...if that makes any sense. LOL. We will keep searching. Not horrible, just not what our family is looking for I guess.

Fruit and Vegetable Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
I admit it, I was a big doubter on this one but I really wanted to try it. My whole family, even 4 kids, loved this. Who would have thought these ingredients combined so well? To make it a quicker recipe though, I browned the chops, removed them from the pan, then sauteed the onions in the drippings. In a separate bowl, I put in my chopped Granny Smith apples and then sprinkled the corn starch over these and tossed it to coat. I only had a 14 oz. can of sauerkraut, so I increased brown sugar to 3/4 cup. I then added the sauerkraut, brown sugar, and sauteed onion with all the drippings to the apples and mixed well. I placed the pork chops in a casserole dish, covered them with the sauerkraut mixture, covered with foil and baked for 45 minutes at 350. Perfect! Served with potato perogies and crusty bread. One of the few nights where there were no leftovers to put away. This is a keeper for us.

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
My DH grew up in New Orleans...so finding a good Cajun recipe is sometimes challenging. Well, this one passed the test with flying colors. He loved it and said it was perfect...exactly the right amount of spice. The only mistake I made was I added an entire can of chicken broth instead of the 1/2 can is calls for. Next time, I will only do the 1/2 can to make it just a tad thicker. Served over white rice with a slab of crusty bread...Yummy!

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
WOW! So easy and SO GOOD. EVERYONE at my book club today LOVED this. I usually always tweak a recipe to my own personal tastes, but this one I made exactly as printed and it is perfect as is. This is a keeper.

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2006
I heard about this recipe from a friend who made it for her family. Of course, in my mind I'm thinking, "OK, thanks...but the family recipe that I grew up with and have used for YEARS is much better." Well, on a lark last night, I decided to try this. Everyone in the family thought this was the best thing they've ever eaten! I guess I'm tossing the old family recipe. Please don't tell my grandma!

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2006
This was pretty good. The topping did not overpower the fish. I used Japanese Panko instead of bread crumbs and it worked fine. Served with steamed asparagus and a blend of wild rice and brown rice. It was a super dinner, and healthy as well.

Company Couscous

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2006
This was okay...not fabulous, just okay. I might make it again...perhaps using canned tomatoes instead of cherry tomatoes??? Although, I did like the color in this one with green onions, red pepper, etc.

Pseudo Sourdough for the Bread Machine

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2006
This was very tasty for a quick recipe and for what I had on hand. I did have to substitute AP Flour for Bread Flour...which probably made for a denser loaf...but still yummy. Althought next time I will make sure to use bread flour. The only hint I have - I didn't have time to wait for sour cream to come to room temp. So, I used very hot water, wisked the sour cream with it, tested the temp and it was perfect...plus, I think it made the bread combine quicker. Will do again.

Baked Havarti Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2006
What an interesting combination of flavors. Our family loved it. Very easy recipe and quick as well. No chopping or extended prep. The mushrooms were awesome, only added some ground black pepper and a tad more salt. I will make these next time we have steak. The dill havarti is the key though...it's that creamy cheese with the dill flavor that just seems to set everything off perfectly. This is a keeper for us. Thanks
