Cornflake Slice

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2003
Although not as good as a rice crispy, we still thought these were quite tasty. To be on the safe side, I gave the pan a quick shot of butter-flavored spray oil and did the same with my spatula to make spreading in the pan easier. I think next time I would use a 9" square pan because it spreads out quite thin in the 9" x 13" pan. Thanks, Rob!

Hearty Potato, Bacon and Onion Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2003
Very good soup and easy to make. I used low-fat and no-fat sour cream and couldn't taste a difference.

Baked Fried Eggplant

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2003
O.K. but kind of bland. The coating could use something extra like pepper. I would say the prep time is closer to 20, not 10, and is a little messy to make. We used ranch dressing to dip it in, which was o.k., marinara sauce probably would have been better. Definitely cook for the full amt. of time - I cut mine to about 1/3" and baked 15 mins. per side and it was still just a little "tough."

Bacon Cheeseburger Upside Down Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2003
This was very good and very easy to make. I followed the recipe, except I also added pepper to the topping mixture, and thought it tasted great, although we all agreed it didn't really remind us of pizza. Maybe with mozzarella cheese instead or a little sausage.

Alice Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2003
This was one of those rare recipes that I tried that the WHOLE family really liked. I have a picky 12 yr. old who rarely likes anything and even he complimented it! I used baby portobello mushrooms and found we only needed about 4 oz. of the cheese. Some used the dressing, others did not. It was fabulous - deserves more than 5 stars!

St. Louis Toasted Ravioli

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2003
This recipe was AWESOME and so easy to make. I used 1/2 cheese ravioli and 1/2 meat ravioli and we can't decide which we liked better. I put the breadcrumbs in a bag and mixed the raviolis in there - made the job go much quicker. Thanks, Barb!

Veal Marsala

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2003
This turned out o.k. Part of the problem may have been the cut of veal. I got what was available at the store but even after pounding it, it was still a little tough. I added cream at the end, as others have suggested, but it only wanted to separate from the butter. It actually tasted better cold the next day.

Potato Tacos

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2003
These were so good and so easy to make. I did, however, have trouble with the corn tortillas wanting to tear in half after I folded them, even though they were at room temperature. I would recommend heating the tortillas first in the microwave or making these quesadilla-style and then cutting them in 1/2. I used a lot less oil than called for and just flipped them over. Thanks, Yvonne!

Funeral Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2003
These were o.k. but the kids didn't like them at all. I took others' recommendations of only using 1/2 of the cheese sauce mixture - glad I did. I also only put about 1/2 of the bread crumbs on and it still seemed like too many. We had lots of leftovers.

Sour Cream Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2003
These chops were pretty good but I agree with others that the sour cream gravy is really lacking something. I added a can of cream of celery soup, then some paprika and pepper, but that still didn't seem to do the trick. It also never thickened up. I would probably make the chops again in the slow cooker, and just skip the gravy part altogether. They tasted pretty good on their own.

Bobbie's Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2003
These were delicious but I thought a little sweet for my liking. I think next time I will cut the white sugar back to about 1/2 cup. Because I already have a few similar recipes combining oats with choc. chips., I used cinnamon chips and really liked the combination. I may increase those a little next time. I used a mini ice cream scoop to make the job easier and got nearly 6 dozen cookies. Thanks, Shannon!

Tuscan Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2003
I wasn't sure I was going to like this soup when I was making it - boy, was I ever surprised! I used regular Italian links instead of spicy, since we don't really care for the other, and I cut them into small rounds instead of crumbling them. Delicious! Thanks, Dianne!

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2003
Considering I've never had a cabbage roll before in my life, I thought these were o.k. My husband seemed to like them a lot so I will probably make them again in the future but I will follow others' suggestions and double the sauce. Also, I bought a small head of cabbage which made it really tough to remove the leaves. I would buy a larger one next time.

Double Crust Bean Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2003
Pretty tasty and very easy to make. I took others' recommendations and added closer to 1 cup of salsa to the mix and the consistency seemed to be perfect. I also added a little garlic and used Mexican blend cheese. I served it with more salsa and sour cream. I thought it seemed a little bit sweet but perhaps that was just the brand of salsa I used, or maybe the crust.

Chocolate Mint Cake Squares

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2003
I was given this almost exact recipe from my sister-in-law several years ago. About the only difference is I use a few drops of peppermint extract in place of the creme dé menthe. I also add a couple drops of either green or red food coloring. I don't let mine chill more than about 45 mins. or the top tends to crack easily when you are trying to cut it. Also, I divide the pan into about 4 sections, saving one to eat immediately, and the other 3 are cut up and put on paper plates then in plastic freezer bags. They freeze nicely and thaw quickly when you are looking for a quick dessert or have someone drop in unexpectedly. I try to keep a couple plates in the freezer at all times.

Best Ever Party Appetizer

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2003
Everyone else gave this recipe 5 stars so perhaps it was something I did but we found the flavors to be REALLY OVERWHELMING. Maybe it's because I mixed everything in the food processor, I don't know. The rosemary and garlic were particularly strong. The flavors were a little more mild the next day and mixed together better, but nobody really ate any. Sorry.

Grilled Pizza Wraps

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2003
This tasted good but doesn't want to fold very easily so I probably won't make them again. I also tried to fold them burrito-style and that didn't work very well either. I found them to be too greasy, also. Sorry.

Fruit Stacked English Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2003
These were awesome! I wouldn't change a thing! I served it with dinner as sort of a dessert item, but think it would be even better for brunch or lunch, especially on a hot day! Thanks, Joan!!

Cheese Ravioli with Fresh Tomato and Artichoke Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2003
We enjoyed this very much but I altered it just slightly. I used one 25 oz. bag of ravioli. I used 4 Roma tomatoes, but didn't bother to seed them, and one can of Italian-style diced tomatoes. I also used 1 whole can of artichoke hearts, sliced up, and used all the juice. I used 4 cloves of fresh garlic, instead of 3. I also added some Italian seasoning and let it all cook down for about 10 - 12 mins., then mixed it with the ravioli. My husband also used some of the sauce on top of some cheesy garlic bread.

Chicken Fried Steak I

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2003
Very good and simple to make. I used steak that was already sliced very thin (for sandwiches) but think they may have been too thin. I found I had a little bit of trouble getting the breading to stay on the steak in certain places. Overall, everyone enjoyed these but next time, I will pound the meat down myself.
