Taco Dip I

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2013
Love it! I skip the peppers and olives. But super yummy with the scoops chips. I slowly add the sour cream to the softened cream cheese. The consistency turns out much better.

Bacon and Egg Breakfast Tarts

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
These were pretty good. I misread the ingredients when I was at the store and got pre-made pie crust. I just cut the pie shell into fours and cut off most of the excess. I cooked the pie crust according to package directions then added the filling before cooking again. I did as others suggested and scrambled everything and put it the tarts. They taste like mini quiches. I think I would try this again, possibly with bacon, parmesan or broccoli and cheese.

Simple Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2012
Really good. I was surprised as I hate anything with ground turkey (the mister loves it!). I made it exactly as written but didn't mash the beans. After I put the water in I realized it was way to much water. I put the lid on for about 20 minutes then took it off to let it reduce to the consistency that we liked (about 15 minutes). I thought it was seasoned perfectly but I think that was because I let it reduce and it concentrated the flavor. I will make this again.

Mongolian Beef and Spring Onions

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2012
This was way too sweet for the both of us. Over all it is a good recipe but next time we are going to cut down the sugar by either cutting it out completely or just adding a few tablespoons. I will re-rate once we do, I think this recipe has promise. :)

Strawberry Syrup

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
I love this! I followed other people's suggestions and just halved the sugar. I figured I could always add more sugar if I didn't think it was sweet enough. But at half a cup it tasted sweet enough. The kids gobbled it up on waffles. I also set aside 1/4 cup of water and added some corn starch so the syrup would come out thicker. I added that in when I had about 3-4 minutes left for it to simmer. I really din't feel like mashing the strawberries so I just used my food processor. This taste so much better than store bought stuff. I will be using this recipe often!!

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
Yum! This turned out fantastic! I usually am not a fan of this desert either. I especially loved the pudding mixture and I wouldn't mind just making that part :)

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
Love these cookies! I planned on making 1 batch but ended up making another they were that good. If you generally find almond extract to be overwhelming I suggest using vanilla instead. My dough was crumbly the first time around so I kneaded the dough in my hands a bit before I rolled into a ball. This did not happen on my second batch but I am certain that was because I only let my butter soften for an hour vs several the first time. My cookies had a "cracked" appearance but I liked the look of them that way. I also used vanilla for the frosting instead of almond. I find too much can be overwhelming. I can't wait to try these cookies with different jams!

Garlic Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
Yummy! These were super tasty and a huge hit. I made them using regular mustard though. I'm not the biggest fan of biting into fresh garlic (I chopped in into really small pieces too) so the next time I make these I'm going to mash the garlic up in my mortar and pestle then add it or just use roasted garlic. But overall a super delish snack for sure.

Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
This recipe turned out great. And very tasty. I liked that you didn't need a ton of oil to make it. Will make again for sure!

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
I really liked this recipe. I made it with beef stuffed ravioli. The only thing I did differently was using the food processor to make it a smooth sauce, as others suggested and added a bit of flour to thicken in up. I can't wait to try it with other kinds of pasta. It was a really easy dish to make with ingredients I always have on hand.

One Dish Chicken and Rice Bake

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
This recipe can be really really good if done right. We've had times when its turned out perfect and times where the rice is still crunchy. We've just starting covering the dish with foil and that seems to have stopped the crunchy rice problem. Although trying to double the rice never works out for me. :( We have used this recipe with chicken and pork chops. We've also used different soups. Tonight we are using cream of mushroom with roasted garlic. We also sometimes use half milk and half water and we brown the chicken/pork before hand.

Cottage Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2011
Yummy! I really liked these! We used chicken thighs because the mister accidentally bought those instead of breasts. But it didn't make too much of a difference. I didn't add much of the green chiles as I am a huge wimp when it comes to anything spicy :( I used a 15oz can of enchilada sauce but will use a 20oz next time I make it. I put a little bit of sauce on the bottom but will put more the next time. Even after greasing the pan the enchiladas stuck a bit. I also covered every inch of the tortillas (we used flour tortillas) with the enchilada sauce because I didn't want them to be hard after baking. I think I will also add some cilantro next time.

Fabulous Wet Burritos

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
I'd actually give this a 4 1/2 stars. Over all this dish was really really good plus really easy and fast. We made it almost exactly. We did not add the lettuce or diced chilies as some didn't like either but I don't think it made too much of a difference (although I'd love to try it with the lettuce). We didn't did have cumin so we used coriander. We also added cheese to the inside of the burrito as well as on top. And like the others suggested we baked it in the oven for 20 min. I was skeptical about the chili without beans and the tomato soup but after reading the other reviews I used both. I am glad I did! I think next next we may try adding rice to the burritos, maybe corn or black beans. I can't wait to make it again!

Hidden Cheeseburger

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
We thought this was great. We loved the meat mixture and plan to use it for when we make regular cheese burgers. We used a generic bread dough (we had that on hand) and it was a pain in the butt to get it stretched out. We plan to use a better quality dough next time or something the other reviews suggested. We cut the recipe in half and it was still plenty of meat for the 4 of us. I actually think making it with 2 pounds might be a bit much.

Classic Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
Yum! This was so easy to make. The first time I ever made this I thought clean up would be hard but after running the pan under hot water for a minute, clean up was a breeze. It was really tasty. Next time I'm going to drizzle melted milk chocolate and white chocolate over it with a fork. Can't wait.

Famous Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
It turned out great!! So good and so moist! We followed the recipe exactly. We used ritz crackers for the coating. Because we were worried about a soggy bottom we took them out of the oven about 20 minutes before it was done then placed on a cooling rack (placed on a cookie sheet) then let it cook uncovered for the rest of the time. While it didn't completely get rid of the sogginess it certainly helped. Other than that...yummy!

Sausage Gravy I

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
Really, really good! I used butter because I did not have any bacon grease on hand. But I would love to try using it one day. I accidentally added 1/3 instead on 1/4 cup flour so I added more salt, onion powder, and sage to get rid of the flour-y taste. If i make it again I am going to use sage ground pork instead of the plain stuff but it was still fantastic with the plain stuff. I would make this again for sure.

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
This recipe turned out really well for us. We scaled the recipe down for just the two of us. But I added more spices than the recipe calls for. I added more rice and shredded mozzarella into the meat mixture (I let the meat mixture cool a bit while I waited for the rice to cook before I added the cheese) I also put cheese on top while baking. I used more tomato sauce than was called for as well when I was basting them. I personally did not pre boil my peppers, I think its a matter of taste. But I think since I added the extra tomato sauce and had a ton to baste the peppers with it really helped.
