Chicken Tortilla Soup III

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2007
Fabulous! I was looking for a copy of soup I had tried in a restaurant and this was about as close as I could ask for. I made it exactly, except used low-fat 1/2 & 1/2 and couldn't tell a difference. I noticed some people complained about the amount of corn so at first I only added a 1/2 can but couldn't notice it so I added the rest and it was delicious. Not overloaded with corn at all like I was expecting. Can't wait to try the leftovers today since soup usually tastes better the second day. Oh yeah, also, I used store-bought salsa instead of homemade and it was very good. The store brand I use has a heavy tomato base.

Tomato 'n' Shrimp Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2007
This was pretty basic and easy to assemble. As with many recipes like this, it actually tasted better the second day when the flavors had a chance to all come together.

Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
These had a nice taste and I had no problem with the batter doubling up in size, but because I only had a regular waffle iron, they did not want to puff up like a Belgian waffle should. Still tasted good though and the texture was fine. As everyone else has commented on, you do use quite a few bowls, but worth it. *UPDATE* Since my original review, I have purchased a belgian waffle maker and this recipe came out fantastically! I would say it is now a 5 star recipe! Enjoy!!

Pork Medallions

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2007
This was so good! I took a previous reviewer's recommendation of doubling the sauce portion and think it could even be tripled, it didn't go very far. Was very tasty, though. I didn't have fresh mushrooms so just used a can of no-salt mushrooms, drained. Also, I think I will cut the medallions closer to 1" thick because I had so many.

Fresh Peach Angel Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2007
This was so good, I loved the crust. Since fresh peaches are only available for about a month in my area, I bought frozen sliced peaches, defrosted and well drained in a colander. Pretty good, but not quite as tender as fresh peaches. The meringue crust puffed up somewhat while baking so after it cooled, I just piled everything up on top. Does not come out of the pan cleanly, but who cares? It's delicious. One recommendation: make this to serve enough people to clean it up in one or two sittings, I noticed by the next day the peaches were starting to drain and make the crust a little soggy.

Cornbread Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2007
I would maybe make this again but found the packaged cornbread mix too sweet for our liking. Next time, I would make my own cornbread recipe. The back of the Quaker cornmeal container has a nice, basic cornbread recipe that isn't too sweet.

Jamaican Me Crazy Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2007
Just a bit too sweet and a bit too spicy for our liking. I had never used hot paprika before so if you don't like things overly spicy, you may want to cut back a little on that.

Layered Eggplant Hamburger Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2007
My husband and I thought this was o.k. Seemed to be lacking a little flavor. It is very easy to make and a great way to get kids to eat eggplant since you really can't tell it's even in there. I cut back just a tad on the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese as it seemed to be a bit much.

Fettuccini with Mushroom, Ham and Rose Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2007
This was interesting. I'm glad I read the other reviews first because I cut the spices back by 1/2 and the crushed red pepper to 1/4 tsp. Seemed to taste fine with those amounts. Anymore would have been way too spicy. It's hard to gauge 6 slices of ham since they come in all different sizes. A more exact amount would have been helpful. I took another reviewer's suggestion of saving time by chopping the ham in the food processor. Made the job go quickly but the ham had the consistency of a hash, which I don't think worked well with the recipe. Also, I took another reviewer's suggestion of using 1/2 and 1/2. Since I already had the heavy cream, I used half of each, and it tasted fine. This recipe makes A LOT so I would suggest cutting it in half for a family of four. Not sure if I'll make it again.

Cinnamon, Spice and Everything Nice Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2006
These cookies are fabulous. I only had blackstrap molasses so the taste may have been a bit stronger, but we all agreed that they taste fantastic. This one will be added to my holiday baking, but is good any time of year. It is hard finding the cinnamon chips. My grocer told me they only carry them at Christmas so if you find them, stock up on a few bags!

Cinnamon Chip Gems

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
This recipe sounded so good but we were pretty disappointed with it. It's easy to make but pretty time consuming and the flavor wasn't very good. I won't be making this one again.

Almond-Raspberry Meringue Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
I hate to be the killjoy here but I found these bars to be way too sweet and the almond taste very overwhelming. It must be just me since everyone else loved them so much. Sorry.

Down-on-the-Farm Breakfast

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
This was interesting. I used regular, low-salt bacon and only got about 2 Tbsp. of fat, not 2 cups. I don't know why you would want that much bacon grease in the dish anyway. I did not add any oil, just continued on with the instructions. I'm not sure how you are supposed to make indentations once it's poured in the casserole dish since it has somewhat of a gravy consistency. I, instead, just scrambled the eggs and poured over the top and sprinkled the cheese over that. I needed to bake it about 10 mins. longer. This dish is very salty.

Cranberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2006
I was looking for a dessert for Thanksgiving using fresh cranberries and this fit the bill perfectly. I added a little sugar to the graham cracker crust and needed a little more butter to get the crumbs to stick together. We all agreed it could use double the cranberry mixture. The cake cracked all over where the swirls were so instead of spreading the leftover cranberry sauce all over the top, we used it to fill in the deep cracks and it turned out very pretty. Will make this one again with double the cranberries.

Mac 'n' Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2006
Awesome! Just what I was looking for. I used frozen chopped broccoli and pre-packaged mini cubes of ham (rinsed well to get rid of the excess salt) and it really cut down on prep time. The soup tends to thicken up after sitting for a while, almost to the consistency of slightly runny regular mac and cheese, so be sure to cook the noodles well ahead of time, the full 10 mins. I would say my total prep time was no more than 15 mins. Thanks for a great recipe!

Turkey Mercedes

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
Since it's not my turn to make the turkey this year, I decided to try this on a chicken instead. I made it exactly as stated but didn't find the flavors to be noticeable at all. Is it because I used chicken instead of turkey? I would guess them to be similar. Sorry.

Louisiana Sweet Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2006
What did I do wrong? I really liked the taste of these but they were very doughy and not light and fluffy. I used canned sweet potatoes that I mashed and weighed out - perhaps I used too much? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, I'd like to make these again.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2006
This recipe was really easy to make and tasty. I followed other recommendations and first off, cut the recipe in half. As a twist, and because I only had 1/2 the broccoli I needed, I also used frozen asparagus. I mixed them with some chicken broth, placed in the food processor and then on pulse, got the veggies into much smaller pieces. I also cut the amount of broth by half and made up the difference with half-n-half, and substituted all of the milk with half-n-half. When it was all said and done, the soup had too creamy of a taste so next time, I will keep the broth amount the same and just substitute the milk with the half-n-half. I used half processed cheese and half cheddar to reduce the sodium. Because of the overly creamy taste, I had to add a little more cheese. Because of all the cream, the soup was too light in color so I added a drop or two of red food coloring and it gave it that nice cheddar cheese yellow orange it was lacking. I purchased bread bowls from Panera and served the soup in there. Very filling!

Taco in a Bag

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2006
What a fun way for the kids (and adults) to eat tacos! I didn't bother crushing the tacos or slitting the package, just cut open the top and put in the usual taco ingredients that I like and ate with a fork. No mess whatsoever. I used a single serving size bag of Fritos but any type of corn chip would work.

White Chili IV

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2006
We loved this recipe. I had to make a few alterations when I didn't have exactly everything needed. I used 1 can no-salt mushrooms, drained. I cooked the chicken on my Foreman grill, but sautéed the rest of the vegetables. I didn't have green chilies so I used 2-4 oz. cans, somewhat drained, and I didn't have any red pepper. I used A LOT more broth, besides the 2-14 oz. cans, I used 1 large can. I cooked everything in the slow cooker all day and then served each bowl with some shredded cheese and a small dollop of sour cream. Also served with cornbread. Oh yeah, I also added some extra cumin to the recipe to make up for all the broth I had added.
