Orange, Walnut, Gorgonzola and Mixed Greens Salad with Fresh Citrus Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2007
This salad is very good (addictive, in fact) with the following changes (some to decrease the amount of sugar): use walnut oil in place of one of the oils, use mandarin oranges instead of navel oranges, no added sugar, less OJ, regular walnut pieces, and bagged spring mix to make it snappy!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2003
This is absolutely delicious! As with all recipes, I made a few changes: 1- I decreased the butter to 4 Tbsp. 2- Left it in the skillet only long enough to brown the outside of the rolled chicken. Then, I baked it the remaining time on 350 degrees just until the chicken was cooked through. 3- I only used 3/4 cup of whipping cream and thickened the sauce. We loved it, definitely a make-again recipe!

Baked Fish Creole

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2003
This was delicious! I tried it on a fluke because I had fish that I needed to use, and I am so glad that I did! This is a regular favorite at my house now. You could use less rice and don’t be surprised if you need to bake it longer. Also, I don't usually keep chili sauce on hand, so I made my own with tomato puree, chili powder, cumin, and a small amount of vegetable oil. Add Creole seasoning for extra flavor! Enjoy!

10 Minute Zesty Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2010
I made this salsa and my kids raved about it being better than our local mexican restaurant salsa! I did change things up a bit based on what I had on hand at the time. I used Rotel w/Chiles and also added Ortega Mild green sauce for flavor. I keep jarred jalapenos on hand because I use them so often and they work great in this recipe. I used sea salt but no pepper, no olive oil. I made it a few days ahead and it actually got better over time.

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
This is my new chili recipe! It did seem dry, so I added a half bottle of Corona and I seasoned it with chipolte seasoning. Topped with cheese and sour cream, it was great!

Lemon Ricotta Cheesecake Squares

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
I purchased store brand ricotta cheese and that may be the problem, but I was really hoping for a cheesecake flavor and consistency and it was not. So if you make this, use good quality ricotta.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
Yum! This is delicious even before I add the BBQ sauce! I used chicken broth because its all I had on hand and put it in the slow cooker for about 6 hours. Plan to mix it with BBQ sce and some of the reserved liquid from cooking and warm it in the crockpot for an hour or two while we head out to church and when we get back home tonight it will be perfect!

Corn and Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
These are pretty good. I was hoping for kid friendly, but it didn't make that cut. Somewhat budget friendly at approx $8 for all ingredients. I mixed the ingredients and placed in the fridge in patties and didn't have too much trouble keeping them in shape. If I do make this again, I will blend the creamed corn first so that pieces of corn are not obvious on the cakes..that raised an eye brow or two :)

Fabulous Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
Very good. Teenager approved. Definately use the lemon yogurt, Yoplait makes a great version if you're having trouble finding it.

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
Wonderful! I also exchanged the milk for egg and this worked well. I cooked them in the oven then I used Don Pepino tomato sauce (yellow can, simple, delicious, economical sauce for everything!) with them in the crock pot for a few hours and made the best meatball and provalone cheese subs ever!!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
Yumm! I used chicken broth instead of water and I didn't have ham, so I subbed "real" bacon bits instead. I made it extra creamy with a little half and half, I blended in sour cream at the end, and served it with cheddar cheese on top. This one is a keeper! I since tried to use another potato soup to save time and my kids noticed and wanted this one again!

Red, White and Blue Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
This cake tasted great and was fun to make with the kids. Very patriotic! Next time, however, I will use a large cool whip because it was a thin layer when we were done and that left it a little dry! I think I will also split the cake in half and place a layer of strawberries and whipped cream between the layers, then top with the extra cool whip and American flag decorations.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
I made a faster version of this on the stovetop because of time constraints. I used no butter or onion. I cubed and boiled the chicken for 20 min covered with bay leaves, celery salt, and poultry seasoning, then pulled the chicken out and shredded it. I strained the 2 cups of broth left and added 3 cans of cream of chicken soup. I simmered it for about another hr uncovered and added 4 quartered pilsbury frozen buttermilk biscuits in the last 30 minutes. It was better than my previous attempts in the slow cooker! Even my picky eaters liked it!

Chicken Flautas

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2010
This is a kid-approved recipe at my house. I followed the advice of previous reviewers and softened the tortillas in the microwave and sprayed with cooking oil to cut down fat/calories. I had purchased flour tortillas by mistake but they were fine - will try corn next time. I used the "10-minute zesty salsa" recipe from this site and made it extra spicy and poured it over the shredded chicken a few hrs in advance. I added extra cumin and mixed in 2 oz cream cheese to the chicken mixture when preparing to fill the tortillas as per previous reviewers. The chicken mixture was so good leftovers were eaten alone.

French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
Enormous hit for company visiting from out of town. Was nice that it was made ahead. Made more than enough and actually ran out. The kids were crazy about it.

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2012
Nice way to use chicken leftovers. I also added chipolte pepper and cumin. Next time I think I will make a cheese sauce to go over the top.

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
I felt this was waaaaay too sweet, even with the reduction in conf. sugar to 3 cups and brown sugar to 2 cups recommended by other reviewers. On the flip side, this recipe makes an awesome praline sauce and I probably will make that again!

Million Dollar Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
Kids loved this too. I mixed frozen coconut to some of the icing and added to a small portion and it was dramatically improved! Very tropical and light. I will add coconut to the entire cake next time! Great cake for a summer block party

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
This was a really good alternative to ground beef for tacos. I used Franks Red Hot and chipotle seasoning instead of cayenne because its what I had on hand, and cooked it for less time (?4 hrs) just until done and shredded it with a fork and spooned the broth over that and refrigerated it for the next day. We used the 10 min salsa recipe from this site and added guacamole, sour cream and cheddar to soft tortillas for a fast, yummy weeknight meal!
