Potato Skillet

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2014
This was really yummy, and so simple too. I like eggs but don't love them, and this recipe appealed to me because it had more potato flavor. I used a big skillet as was called for in the recipe, but you really only need a medium sized one. I wish I had had some fresh tomatoes or salsa on hand...either one would have been good to top it off with. And you could easily add more ingredients into the dish to your liking and just add an additional egg to keep it bound together. I will definitely be making this again.

Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2014
This is very good, although I'm glad I read the reviews and only used 1/2 packet of soup mix because it was still very salty. I may cut back on the au just mix next time as well. I added some mushrooms since my hubby likes them. Also forgot this was a crockpot recipe and when I got home from work there was no time for that, so I just simmered it on the stove for about 25 mins and it worked out fine. Will be making again!

Thanksgiving Leftover Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
This was pretty good, but I had to make a couple of changes. First, only one cup of turkey would never have been enough so I doubled it. Also, I'm not a fan of evaporated milk so I used whole milk instead. I liked the flavor, but I think it would have been even better if there had been more of the crumb topping (I used Stove Top Turkey) since that's where the herbs and spices are. Will try again one day using chicken since we eat much more of that.

Peanut Butter Cookies IX

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
This recipe was pretty good. Followed the recipe to a tee and mine took around 11 minutes to bake. You definitely need to let them sit on the cookie sheet for a few minutes. They were crunchy but not chewy like some others had mentioned. A little too sweet so if I make them again I'll probably cut back on the sugar.

Birthday Bones

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
These were soooo easy to make! So easy, in fact, that I made 1200 small heart shaped ones for an event I sold them at. I made as directed, but I had some carrot juice in the fridge so on some of them I used 3/4c milk and 1/4c carrot juice to change it up. My dog loves them, and my house smells like peanut butter. A real winner!

Corn On The Cob (Easy Cleaning and Shucking)

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2012
This worked GREAT! My hubby doesn't like corn and I love it, but I usually buy frozen because it's a pain to boil just 1 ear. From now on I will be making it this way because it's so darned easy, and I'll use the frozen when corn is not in season.

Sarah's Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
This is a good base recipe but much too bland. I also felt it was too greasy. I will make it again, but cut the butter in half and add some spices. I liked the fact that it has much less sodium than Rice-A-Roni, but it just didn't have any flavor so I will correct that next time around.

Taco Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2012
I am giving this only 4 stars because I changed things up a bit. I try not to do that too often but with this recipe I felt that tomato sauce and water would not lend enough flavor, even with the taco seasoning. I used 1c of enchilada sauce and 2c tomato sauce and omitted the water. I made home made taco seasoning from this site and only added about 1T since the enchilada sauce already added spice. And instead of microwaving it I put it in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes and put the chips on top as soon as it came out. It was delicious and a nice change from traditional lasagna.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2012
The only change I made was to cut the red pepper flakes in half as we don't like things too spicy. It was great and so simple to make!

Sicilian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
This soup was really good. I'm not a huge sausage fan, but this wasn't overpowering at all. I made the recipe as written, but like others I thought it was too tomatoey so I added another 1 1/2 cups of broth and that fixed it. I also used 2/3 cup pasta instead of 1/2 cup just because I like more. Paired it with some crusty french bread.

Passion Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
We liked this alot, but we both would have preferred a few less chocolate chips. Other than that, and the pb mixture being hard to spread (should have microwaved it for a few seconds) it was easy to make and had nice flavor and texture.

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
I've never had this kind of bread before so I don't know how authentic it is, but I'm a believer that as long as it tastes good it doesn't matter. I had to modify two things...I didn't have caraway seeds, and my hubby doesn't like raisins, so I left them both out. I don't know if I would buy caraway just for this recipe, but next time I make it I'll add the raisins. I can tell it would taste wonderful with them in it.

Eezy Bikkies

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2012
As the author wrote, these can get hard quickly. They are difficult to eat on their own but would be nice dunked in coffee. They have good flavor, but are really, really sweet. Too sweet for our taste so I probably won't make them again.

Chicken Scallopini

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
Meh, not much to write home about on this one. The sauce was just okay and there wasn't much of it. If I ever made it again I would add some chicken broth to it, but I'll probably just look for a better recipe.

Beef, Burgundy Style

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
This is really good, but it took about 4 hours in my cast iron pan for the meat to become fork tender. I made exactly as written, but I think I will make two changes next time. First, cut the meat into smaller chunks so it will cook quicker, and also reduce the amount of rosemary to 1 sprig. I'm not a lover of it and it was the dominant flavor in the sauce.

Oven Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
I was making this for 2 people so I scaled it back accordingly and they came out great! They were a little bland though, so I think next time I'll add some pepper and maybe a little more salt. Otherwise, they came out perfect and fluffy!

Heather's Healthy Oatmeal Surprises

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2012
These are delicious! Several reviews said they omitted the white sugar so I was worried they might be too sweet, so I cut it back to about 1/4 cup and I think that was a perfect amount. Not too sweet, not too boring. I like raisins but my husband doesn't so it was nice to find a recipe that didn't have them in there. I also used parchment paper on my cookie sheet so they wouldn't stick.

Lemon Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2012
This is very good and moist! I had a really hard time finding lemon cake mix, and when I finally did it was a 15 oz. box, but I left the rest of the ingredients the same and it came out fine. This had great lemon flavor but I like it a little bit stronger so next time I'm going to add some grated peel.

Stuffed Shells IV

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
This was pretty good, but I think the meat mixture needed some extra seasoning, possibly with oregano, basil and more garlic. It seemed a little bland to me. I made 2 changes but I don't think it affected the flavor as far as seasonings go. First, I don't like cottage cheese in anything so I used ricotta. Second, I used fresh spinach as that was all I had. This recipe makes alot! I should have looked at the number of servings because there were only 2 of us eating it so we tired of it after the 2nd meal. Next time I will cut the recipe in half, and add the seasonings I mentioned above.

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2012
I'm giving this 3 1/2 stars. It was good, but I thought it was a little bland. I halved the recipe but that shouldn't have mattered. I think it depends on the size of the potatoes. I used bigger ones so I actually quartered mine and they just didn't seem to have enough coating to make them flavorful. I am going to try the recipe again but use the really small ones and see if that makes a difference.
