Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2015
Followed the recipe as written except used corn tortillas. Very bland flavor, but presentation was nice and it is a great way to get rid of leftover chicken. I am going to try this again, but add taco seasoning, cumin, salsa or enchilada sauce...needs to be tweaked for my family's tastes. I don't think the sauce should be doubled, as it was almost too creamy as is...I say this because a lot of people recommended doubling the sauce, which I think would make it too soupy. Three stars as written, but could be a four or five with modifications...I'm not giving up on this one!

Strawberry Cake II

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2015
Easy & nice change of pace. Used sugar free Jello & made these into muffins. Diced the strawberries instead of pureeing them, which added nice texture. Also added a dollop of strawberry preserves as a "surprise" in the center (filled muffin cup halfway, added preserves to center with a spoon then added more batter to cover preserves and fill to top). This was a nice surprise that the kids enjoyed and my daughter had fun making these with me. Thx Judalee!

Chef John's Coq Au Vin

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2015
Edible...nothing special to write home about considering all the work you had to put into this dish with frying the chicken beforehand, etc. Greasy & uninteresting flavor.

Quick Cheeseburger Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2015
This was delicious, quick and easy. I was looking for something to help me re-purpose the "Mini Meatloaves" recipe I made last night that no one liked. I rinsed off the sauce, crumbled the mini meatloaves in a bowl, adding 1 tsp garlic powder, 2 TBSP dried, minced onion & 2 teaspoons Montreal Steak Seasoning. I opened a can of petite diced tomatoes, added a cup of torn-up velveeta & 1/3 cup pickle juice, then simmered until cheese melted. I added the 1/4 cup flour & 1/4 cup milk (instead of 1/3 per recipe) and mixed till flour clumps dissolved. Combined the tomato/cheese/flour mixture with the ground beef and then added 2/3 cup diced dill pickles. Lined a casserole dish with a can of the Pillsbury crescent roll dough that was uncut...baked the dough for 3 minutes, then took out, poked holes in partally cooked crust with a fork, added beef mix on top, then covered with 6 American Cheese slices. Baked for 15 minutes then let cool for 15 minutes before serving. Very nice comfort food!

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2015
Liked the concept of individual meatloaves; however, the texture with the oats was too soft/moist and the sauce was too sweet. I took the liberty of adding a little onion and garlic to the meat mixture, and thank God I did...had I not done so I doubt anyone would have eaten this! Overall just a big miss & hubs was making faces at me after (actually before) the first bite (not that that is unusual or anything). Chalk this up to another waste of 1 pound of lean ground beef & 1.5 hours of my life!!!! Guess I need to get a new hobby... :-(

Fresh Strawberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2015
This was simple and DELISH! Not very attractive on it's own, but looks refreshing and appealing when individual slices are served on plate with generous spray of Redi Whip & fresh sliced strawberries. I subbed strawberry flavored marshmallows torn up into small chunks and used sugar free strawberry jello. Wonderful, moist cake that everyone ate and enjoyed. It was so good no one touched the chocolate covered strawberries I served with the cake...several people went back for seconds Wonderful cake for any time of year...thx parealtor313!!!

Italian Nachos Restaurant-Style

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2015
YUM YUM YUMMY!!!!!! Made Exquisite Pizza Sauce from this site & mixed in with the crumbled,cooked sausauge (used mild) until the meat was moist and not too "saucey". Spread totilla chips over large baking sheet with release foil, trying to make a single layer. Spooned lightly sauced sausage on chips. Subbed turkey pepperoni, sliced into strips & sprinkled over chip/sausage mix on tray. Subbed italian six blend shredded cheese, sprinkling over top of previous ingredients, using a little less than a 1/2 pound. Sprinkled top with banana pepper rings, then baked at 350 for 25 minutes. I liked that the nachos stayed crunchy because the sauce is served on the side...nice not to get stuck with "mushy" parts. Next time I will make it with italian turkey sausage to see if it makes a difference. Absolutley delicious & certainly a keeper recipe!!!

Asian Tuna Patties

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2015
I have made this many times & it is very good. Excellent, quick & easy meal for a weeknight or when you don't have any meat defrosted. Very nice with Jasmine rice (w/ sesame oil & salt) and sauted stir-fry veggies. Even my picky kids will eat this...definitely a keeper!

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2014
Such a wonderful, no fail pizza sauce! Didn't have anchovy paste, so omitted that, as well as omitting the crushed red pepper & cayenne. To compensate for the reduced "heat " in this revision, reduced honey to 1 TSP, and subbed extra oregano for marjoram. Mixed at room temperature and used on flattened Rhodes dinner rolls with string cheese to make mini "Mummy" pizzas. They were soooooo good....everyone enjoyed as part of our 2014 Halloween dinner buffet....so delicious...try it, you will love it!

Pumpkin Spice Martini

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2014
Followed recipe, but it was bland and disappointing. Made another batch of six servings with half cup Kahlua to half cup Baileys, two cup pumpkin liqueur, 6 pinches cinnamon, 1 cup vodka plus one extra shot vodka....much better this way. Enjoy!

Stuffed Jack-O-Lantern Bell Peppers

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2014
Delicious & festive...loved the flavor! Subbed roughly 1.5 cups cooked white rice for bread & added an additional TBSP Worcestershire and only added 2 TSP yellow mustard. Cooked beef and drained excess grease prior to mixing other ingredients. Cooked stuffed peppers for 40 minutes. Unlike other reviewers, I had NO leftover stuffing & was running a little light on the last pepper, so not sure if only 1.5 cups rice was enough for the 4 slices of bread (flavor was really good, so not sure I would add more rice next time)...Maybe my peppers were much bigger? Had a casualty carrying the tray of pumpkins to the table, but they were adorable. Highly recommend this recipe...what a great way to celebrate Halloween!

Dead Man's Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2014
Great recipe and had a lot of fun with this! Subbed an 8 oz.package of cream cheese for sour cream & had no issues whatsoever forming the "rat". Dyed the cheese mixture green so it would look particularly ghastly when cut open...people loved the flavor & presentation. Fun, easy,delicious...thanks LUSCIOUSLEMONADE!

Caramelized Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2014
Neither me nor my kids thought this was in ANY way good...Did not care for this at all, as it was WAY too much spice for such a little amount of seeds...

Kale and Feta Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2014
OMG this was OUTSTANDING!!!! I had never tasted Kale before, but was always curious to try it....this was delicious! Only change was to sub cranberries for the currants, and my apple was rather large, so that added a pleasant sweetness. I are almost the whole bowl by myself! I saved some for lunch tomorrow, so I will give an update on how the Kale held up with the minor amount of vinegar...I am looking forward to having this again tomorrow. Please try this delicious, nutritious salad...it is WONDERFUL!!!!

Rosemary Pork Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2014
Very moist and nice flavor. Had a 3# pork loin roast and cooked in my slow cooker on low for 4 hours (stuck it in there when I came home for lunch). Flavor was nice, but it could have used some salt. The pork was falling apart when I cut it, which was fine, but the drippings needed salt to accent the pork flavor. Took the drippings from the crock pot and added a 1/2 cup water with 1 teaspoon salt and 1 tablespoon cornstarch blended into it & added it to the drippings...boiled and poured over the meat...this is what it was missing! Husband, son and I liked it, but daughter wouldn't eat it without a spoonful of mashed potatoes at the same time. Overall, I would make it again, but would add salt while it is cooking.

Pumpkin Fluff Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2014
Made a half batch because I wasn't sure if we would like it; however, no concerns there...it is FABULOUS!!! Cut everything in half, subbing small sugar-free vanilla pudding and small container of lite cool whip. Served it on top of maple pancakes and the kids devoured it & said it was the best breakfast I ever made. Easy, versatile, delicious & refreshing change...definitely try this one, you won't regret it!

Velvety Chicken Corn Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2014
This soup was okay & Hubs liked it, but it just didn't do it for me. Maybe it was the corn that I didnt like...it seemed to clash with the sesame oil in my opinion. I never eat creamed corn and bought a can specifically to make this soup...maybe I just don't lime the flavor of it. I think I will stick with plain egg drop soup without the corn. I like that it is low fat, but think I prefer similar soup without corn. Sorry SONA86...

Greek Avgolemono Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2014
This was an amazing, nourishing, completely satisfying lunch for me....loved it! I didn't have a whole chicken, so I made the following substitutions: 1) used four cups chicken broth 2) added 1/2 tsp garlic 3) added 1/2 tsp onion powder 3) added 1/4 tsp dried Rosemary 4) subbed 1/4 cup uncooked Orzo for the rice 5) added a handful of finely diced chicken breast for additional protein 6) subbed 3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice for the two lemons. I shared the leftovers with my picky kids when they got home from school...they REALLY liked it and gobbled up the leftovers. Thx for the wonderful recipe dimitra!
