Easy Cheeseburger Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2014
This recipe was so good! I came across this while I was looking for a simple taco recipe and decided to make this instead. I used a mixture of cheddar cheese and Mexican cheese. I added a little seasoning salt to the ground beef mixture and diced onions. I am amazed at how good this was!! This is a definite keeper.

Quick and Easy Lasagna

Reviewed: May 14, 2013
I loved this! I added 4 cups of mozzarella to this because I love cheese and exchanged the cottage cheese for ricotta because that's my personal preference. Also I used Hunt's spaghetti sauce because I despise Classico. I may make this again but maybe spend a little more time on the sauce by adding roasted garlic. For a recipe in a pinch, this will do however!

Boyfriend Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2013
This was an awesome recipe! I only made one change...the pan! I used a 9x13 pan because even as I mixed the batter I could tell it was too much for the 9x9 pan. The batter was just enough for the bigger pan. I also made the recipe in one pan. I mixed the chocolate, eggs, and vanilla as well as the dry ingredients in the same pan as the sugar, water and butter to cut down on cleanup and it worked just fine. This brownie is moist, flavorful and very chocolaty and I did not find it overbearing on sweetness in the least. I used semi sweet Nestle chips. The only other recommendation I would make is for those of us who use a glass baking dish. I would add just a little flour to the bottom of the pan to help aide in keeping the brownie non-stick because I used Pam Butter flavored cooking spray and it did not necessarily work as I got a little sticking action on the pan. I will be making this again for sure!

Beefy Cheese Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2012
I gave this a three because I hate when people make a ton of changes and rate the original a 5 when on it's own the original is not that good. I made this before as written and thought i was too salty. I just remade it now and I made some changes. I used a full pound of lean ground beef and eliminated the sausage. Then I used 2 cans of Rotel with green chili's instead of salsa and a large Velveeta loaf. It was amazing like that and way less salty and more flavorful. I will make this version a lot

Marshmallow Treats

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2012
Absolutely delightful! I used 6 cups of Cocoa Krispies, 1 bag Jet Puffed Chocolate Royal Marshmallows, 1 cup Jet Puffed Regular Marshmallows, and 1/4 cup butter. I had a medium sized pot, none bigger, so I poured the mixture into a large mixing bowl and mixed. I used an 8x8 pan because I like super thick treats, but cut them smaller. This was super, duper good and I can't wait to make more. I may make the recipe straight next time with the addition of a teaspoon of vanilla extract. I have eaten 4 and I need to stop for dinner but I don't want to it's so good. Very good recipe and please, please read the reviews because the tips are amazing. I grabbed the tips of melting the butter super slow, so I turned the burner on simmer, or warm, and allowed the butter to melt super slow. I then added the marshmallows and turned the burner up a bit to low and added two tablespoons of milk. Really gooey and the best I have ever made.

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2012
I am not too fond of this recipe as it tasted exactly like a generic box mix, and this is after adding chocolate chips for more richness as suggested by some on this site. It was lacking that chocolate flavor I am used to in brownies and adding the walnuts did nothing for the flavor, which is darn near impossible. I wonder if adding 3/4 cups chocolate and another 1/3 cup sugar may have made a difference? Nevertheless, there is a much richer recipe on this site called Mmmmm... Brownies by Cicada77 that uses just chocolate morsels to create the brownie.

Pepperoni Macaroni

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2012
This was an awesome recipe! I pretty much followed the recipe but omitted the mushrooms and the olives because my roommate doesn't like either. I also added extra Italian seasoning and about 2 more cups of cheese. I mixed in one cup of mozzarella prior to baking and topped with 1 cup Italian blend, 1/2 cup mozzarella and 1/2 cup cheddar. I will definitely make this again!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2012
I made these last night and they were awesome! The process is as easy as it gets and is really a good base for a chocolate chip cookie. I tend to like my cookies very soft and not crunchy in the least. The only change I made was that I used Country Crock instead of butter because I tend to use Country Crock solely in place of butter and it still turned out fantastic! Right now I am pregnant and cannot use chocolate (for annoying reasons of aversions) but when I get home from the hospital I am going to be making these again. Maybe add peanut butter in one batch and brown sugar with chocolate chips in another. There is no real limit on these cookies! Make them, you won't be disappointed!

Macaroni Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
This was a quick, cheap and very tasty way to make a tuna casserole. I enjoyed it immensely. I made the casserole the way it was meant to be made this time to understand what it tastes like but next time I make this I am going to add some celery as well as top it with bread crumbs tossed in butter for more crunch. I am looking forward to tweaking to fit my own taste. It is very rare that the cheese amounts were suitable as I like more cheese in my dishes like this but the amount of cheese was spot on. Excellent!

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
This was a great recipe! I added black pepper, italian seasoning, bread crumbs instead of oatmeal, seasoning salt and a dash of garlic powder, worcestershire sauce and it turned out fantastic! I also added a little cheese in the mini loaves and made 4 small one's out of the mixture. Cooked perfectly on 425 for 45 minutes. I will definitely make this again!

Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
I rarely, if ever, do this but I have been making biscuits from scratch for years and I have to say that even with the additon of fresh garlic and 1 cup of cheese it still came out very bland, non-flavorful. I will be losing this recipe for sure. Sorry.

Pita Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2012
This is by far the best idea I have heard in a long time! I used pizza sauce, 6 cheese blend, low sodium pepperoni, onions and green peppers and I was in heaven! I made two because one simply wasn't enough but even with eating two small one's it's still less calories and fat than takeout. I am currently pregnant and have had a nasty aversion to oils of just about all types. This has put the breaks on pizza dough, chocolate, peanut butter, nuts, etc, etc, etc. I ate this and did not have one hint of oil and that's rare these days. I would love to kiss the chef, thank you for this idea! I am going to try garlic Naan and see how that works!!

Easy Meatloaf II

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
This was a very good recipe! I did make small adjustments to suit my taste. I used 2.25 lbs of ground beef, 2 eggs, 1 cup green onion, 1 1/4 cups milk, 1 1/4 cups regular bread crumbs, salt, pepper, garlic powder, seasoning salt, Italian seasoning, and worcestershire sauce. I cooked for 1 hour and 15 minutes but for the hour I put aluminum foil over the loaf to ensure the whole loaf cooked evenly and in the last 15 minutes I put the topping and allowed the loaf to brown slightly. Then I let it rest for about 20 minutes before cutting, which allowed for even and non crumbled pieces, just the way I like it. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a simple recipe. Even with all the additions it only took 7 minutes to assemble for me.

Smoky Four Cheese Macaroni Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
I made this along with meatloaf tonight and it was amazing! I don't know what those 1 star raters are talking about. I did make a change or two. The first change I made was to the roux. I did not add 1/4 cup flour because in my experience with making mac and cheese, too much flour will make it dry no matter how much liquid you use. I instead melted the butter, cooked the onion and garlic then slowly drizzled in the flour and stopped at a certain point. Then after that I let it cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Then I added the milk and half and half and cooked for ten minutes. After that I did the following in order with the pan on low on the stove: I added the cream cheese, stirring until the mixture was smooth, then I added the Parmesan and mixed until smooth, then I added the cheddar in three parts, mixing until smooth after every addition, then I added the Monterrey jack in three parts, stirring until smooth after every addition, then added the Swiss in three parts, stirring until smooth after every addition. Then I added the pasta. I omitted the smoked flavor and the bread crumb topping and I added seasoning salt and black pepper to the roux before I added the cheese. This was a nice recipe and there is no reason why, if you follow my tips, that you cannot achieve smooth sauce. Remember, adding cold ingredients to a hot sauce when the pan is off the stove is going to yield griddy results. This is just experience over 19 years, I started when I was 8 years old.

Ooey-Gooey Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
Good lordy these are amazing!! I was looking through this site looking for something to do today and I found these buns and I am too impressed with these! I used King Aurther Unbleached Bread flour and these rolls taste professional. I had no problems cutting the rolls with a knife and I cannot wait to make these again!! This is going down as the only recipe I will ever use, ever, for cinnamon buns. No more stale, hard store-bought one's for me! It is a little time-consuming. I started at 1:15 p.m and just finished at 4:35. Worth every bit of time, however.
