Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2014
I am giving this 4 stars because I modified it the second time I made it to cut down on the sweetness. I cut the sugar in the topping to 1/4 cup, 1/4 cup of butter, 1/4 cup of honey. This was plenty enough for the topping and the dessert was still very sweet and rich. Still a little too sweet for our tastes, so the next time I think I will cut the sugar in the cream cheese mixture in half and I think it will be perfect. We love this dessert. Just took to a potluck and got alot of compliments. Thanks for submitting this recipe OP. :) *I think this dessert is better when it is chilled overnight.

Asian Beef with Snow Peas

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2014
My family and I enjoyed this dish. I used zucchini and mushrooms for my choice of vegetables. I used a splash of sesame oil with the vegetable oil and garlic infused rice vinegar. I doubled the sauce per other's recommendations and doubled the cornstarch so my sauce would thicken quickly. Everyone had second helpings so it must have been a hit. ;)

Apple Cider Sauce and Pork Loin Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2014
Loved the sauce for these chops! I thickened it slightly with a little cornstarch. I would makes sure you reduce it enough to concentrate the flavors. I used bone in chops so they would be more tender and moist. I baked these chops 20 mins based on the other reviews. I removed them from the sauce and covered them with aluminum foil allowed them to rest while I made the sauce. Served with cinnamon apples, mashed potatoes. I think I would really like to try this with a pork tenderloin next time and make the sauce on the side. It would be amazing. You'd have the tenderness of the tenderloin with these delicious flavors. It's a keeper for me, thanks!

Great Pumpkin Dessert

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2014
Very good! Have made it twice and the second time I used a can of pumpkin pie filling that already has the sugar and spices and it was just as good if not better. Just omit the sugar and spices.

Cookie Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2014
This is one of my husband's favorites, so I tried this recipe. They were delicious! I formed the balls and refrigerated before dipping and here's a tip: If the Vanilla Almond bark is too thick when melted, you can add a little Crisco to thin to your liking. Turned out great.

Candied Carrots

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2014
These carrots were good. I would recommend cooking down the sauce a little bit so that it thickens up a bit. Reducing the sauce made a nice glaze that was more flavorful and coated the carrots nicely.

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2013
These bars were really good! My only suggestion would be to decrease the amount of cinnamon sugar on top to at least half. There was just too much and it made them too sweet. Otherwise, a very nice fall treat. :)

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2013
You can trust to leave this recipe as is, which is rare! It's delicious. It's so nice to have a go to recipe that calls for everything you already have in your spice rack. The only thing I have to usually buy is the limes.

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2013
I modified this recipe based on some of the reviews and my family and I loved it. I poached chicken tenders and shredded. Sauteed onion in olive oil and added chicken to skillet. I omitted the oregano, since it is an italian spice and didn't seem to fit. Reduced amount of pepper, used 3/4 jar of our favorite salsa ( On the Border) in place of the tomato sauce and omitted the green pepper. I omitted the water and cooked down the chicken mixture to prevent any "soup-like" consistency as mentioned in other reviews. Filling was perfect! I spread some of the taco sauce in the bottom of the dish, then added the enchilada's, topped etc. We gobbled these up...so good! Definitely adding to our dinner rotation. TY, OP.

Sweet Pork for Burritos

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2013
Amazing! The only thing I changed was I only used 1 cup of brown sugar and didn't puree the salsa, otherwise followed the recipe exactly. We used for soft tacos. My family loved it. So easy and delicious. We will definitely be adding this to our dinner rotation. Thank you OP!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
This was a nice soup. It had a little too much chicken flavor for my taste using the granules and tasted more like cream of chicken soup with potatoes, than potato soup. Next time I will either half those or use chicken broth. I halved the salt and pepper. The pepper was fine, but it was still too salty with the granules and ham. Hopefully cutting back on the granules next time will fix that. Will definitely make again and tweak to our liking.

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
This casserole was delicious. I baked 4 large sweet potatoes at 375 degrees for 1 1/2hrs. Slipped right out of the skins. Mixed this by hand bc I like the little lumps and didn't want it totally smooth. Thought the amount of sugar was perfect, not too sweet. My husband and I both agreed it did not taste like a dessert compared to others we've had in the past. Used canned evap milk. Doubled the vanilla and added some cinnamon. Baked at 350 degrees with another small casserole and that was fine, but did have to leave in a few extra minutes to get the topping done. Thank you OP! Loved it!

Tricia's Pineapple Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
I have always enjoyed this dish when people have brought it to potlucks, so I decided to make it for Thanksgiving this year. Really enjoyed it. My one mistake was I added the crushed pineapple with the tidbits based on other reviews and apparently didn't get it drained enough so there was juice in the bottom of the casserole dish and that's not attractive, so drain your pineapple well! Next time I will omit the crushed, its tradtionally made with just the tidbits. I was hesitant to add all of that flour/sugar mixture bc there was so much, but it truly does dissolve. I used a whole sleeve of Ritz crackers. Yummy... thanks OP!

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
I was thrilled to find an easy and delicious scratch coconut pie! 5 stars with these changes: I used the microwave method that others recommended and it's true it works like a charm, so go ahead and try it. I used 1/4 C of flour and 1/4 C cornstarch, but I would recommend only using cornstarch bc it dissolves and mixes in more easily without any lumps imo. Other tips: I used 1/2 coconut milk 1/2 whole milk, coconut extract, 2 eggs and 1 yolk. My coconut took longer to brown-13 mins, but take the time to toast it, bc it really brings out the coconut flavor and it's a pretty presentation. If you make the whipped topping recommended by others here, it makes way too much for one pie. I would half it:( 1/2 carton of heavy whipping cream, I preferred 3 T of the confectioners sugar instead of 2, 1 tsp vanilla). I piped mine on and it looked amazing. I also used a 9 inch deep dish pie crust and it was filled with only a little left over, which we used for sampling. ;) I made this pie the day bf Thanksgiving so it had a long time to set up, so I can't vouch for the time it takes to set. I made the whipped topping the day I was serving it. Loved this pie!!! Thanks OP!

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
Delicious cake-like cookies. I found that if you refridgerate the dough in between batches it is a little less sticky and easier to work with. I also dipped the back of a spoon in flour to flatten the cookies.

Spaghetti Sauce II

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
This was a 5 star sauce with some modifications. I only used 1 tsp each of the dried herbs b/c I have heard that dried herbs are much more intense in flavor. I added another tsp of sugar, 1/2 tsp of salt and used Marsala wine, which I think helped counterbalance the acidity. I did have to thin out the sauce a few times as it simmered. I'm guessing it was around 3 cups of extra liquid over the 3 hrs of cook time and it was the perfect consistency. Just add as you go until you get the sauce where you want it. I used a can of chicken broth to add flavor and another cup of water. I substituted ground sirloin for the sausage and the meat was very tender. This is a delicious sauce! Ty!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
We enjoyed this BBQ! I omitted the brown sugar b/c I bought honey BBQ sauce. I used 4 large chicken breasts and cooked them for 4 hrs on low, then left on warm while I prepared my sides. I took the chicken out and shredded it with two forks and then put it back in the sauce in the crockpot. Served with baked potatoes and coleslaw and it was a super quick and easy meal.

Spaghetti Pie II

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
Very good, as is. If you're using spaghetti sauce from a jar in place of the original ingredients you're missing out. It really doesn't take that much longer to open and dump the cans of tomato paste and tomatoes and throw in the spices. SO much better than a jarred sauce imo. Also no issues here with the eggs scrambling. Just strain your pasta, add butter in first and stir, then parmesan and stir, then gradually add the eggs in a little at a time stirring, quickly. I think all the stirring with each addition cools the pasta enough to temper ok. Such a nice baked spaghetti. Thanks OP!

Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
I love this recipe and have used it several times. I do cut back on the salt and use about half. I sometimes add a tiny bit more mayo for a creamier consistency.

Taco Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
I topped with a mixture of sour cream/cottage cheese (1cup) b/f topping with cheese and it really gave this dish a nice balance. We dipped with tortilla chips or crumbled on top and the added crunch was just what it needed.
