Fish Fillets Italiano

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2012
So easy and fast and delicious. Hubs loved this. I sprayed the pan with Pam instead of using olive oil. I omitted the olives (don't like them) and used a 10 oz can of Rotel tomatoes as that is what I had. I added about 1/4 cup tomato paste to make up for the tomatoes I didn't have. Since other reviews mention a bland flavor I went ahead and added a packet of Good Sense Italian dressing mix along with dried parsley. Used chicken broth instead of wine and sprinkled parmesean cheese over each serving. It actually turned out a bit spicy for the kids- the Rotel did it I think- but the adults thought it was awesome. Used cod that I mostly thawed in cold water 1st and they took about 10 minutes in the simmering sauce.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
Mixed reviews- some of the family really loved this-said it was the best carrot cake they have ever had. Others just thought it was ok. Carrot cake is not their favorite to be fair. I added a little nutmeg, ran the pineapple, carrots and coconut through a processor, used finely crushed walnuts and boiled the raisins in orange juice prior to baking. Edit 3/13- The family that loved this brought it up on Easter- disappointed that I didn't make it for Easter! Turns out they say it was the best carrot cake they had ever had! Will certainly make again with the above mentioned changes.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
Really good frosting although I have a similar version that calls for twice the vanilla and after having both within 2 days of each other- the one with more vanilla is better. I used this to frost a carrot cake (sam's from this site) and it was good but not enough to frost the double layer. I ended up having to make another 1/2 batch.

Salami, Cream Cheese, and Pepperoncini Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
I'm amazed. I made an entire plate of these (1 and a half X the recipe) and they were gone within the 1st half hour of our get together. I chopped up the pepperocini and mixed it into the cream cheese (light). So easy. No one could believe there were only 2 ingredients in the salami.

Witches' Hats

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
Really cute idea although I'm thinking a little frosting would work better than the honey. Honey was kind of drizzled over everything after a few of these were taken off the plate. Used dark choc fudge stripe cookies and dark choc kisses. Flavor is average b/c afterall, this is just a fudge strip cookie with a kiss on top :)

Halloween Ghosties

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
Very cute idea. Used reg size choc chips and they worked just fine. Did half white and then colored the rest with an oil based orange coloring. My 6 year old had fun placing all the eyes. Will likely make again for Halloween although the flavor is just average- more of just a cute thing to do.

Apple Pie Smoothie

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
Just ok. Imade apple juice ice cubes to use b/c I was afraid this would be too runny just using juice. Added a little splenda which helped. Might try it again. Just needs a bit of tweeking to get the flavor right I think.

Pumpkin-Pecan Braid

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
Not the greatest pumpkin dessert I've had but it was descent. Really have to like pumpkin b/c the filling is certainly dominating- not overpowering but really there. Easy. We liked it much better after it cooled, and even the 2nd day after sitting out on the counter.

Pumpkin Muffins with Streusel Topping

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
Its all about the topping. Will definitely triple the topping next time. I doubled it this time and it wasn't quite enough to cover the 18 muffins I ended up with. I used half whole wheat flour/ half white and I used splenda for the white sugar. I poured the batter into the muffin cups and let the kids put raisins and/or choc chips on top. We mixed them in with toothpicks. They ended up staying near the top of the muffin though so next time I will mix them into the batter before filling the cups. For 18 muffins with dbl the topping and splenda these equaled about 250 calories each. They certainly need raisins or choc chips b/c the bottom half of these without any were just too plain.

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2012
The sauce didn't thicken. I browned the meat, removed it from the pan and added the sauce (which I doubled) to let it simmer a while to help in thickening it. Even added some cornstarch but it still never thickened. Added the chicken back after about 8 minutes. A couple minutes before it was ready I added broccoli that I had just steamed in the microwave. I cut the hot sauce (rooster sauce) down by half and it was still too spicy for the kids- not for hubs and me though! We liked the flavor, will likely make again ( it is easy) but it wasn't WOW.

Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
Pretty good, not Panera chicken noodle soup soup but a close second. I used 3 cans chicken broth, 2 veg broth. Added twice as much celery and carrots and even extra chicken. Cooked the noodles separate and kept them that way- just added them to each serving as we ate this soup over a few days. Will make again! Used a rot chicken for ease of prep. Lots of veggies so healthy but will likely use lower sodium broth next time- not b/c it was too salty but just to try to make it healthier.

PHILLY Bavarian Apple Torte

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2012
Yep- this really is as good as they say. I used mostly splenda for the sugar and light cream cheese. Golden delicious apples sliced thin- 4 average sized appled allowed for about 3 layers or nicely placed apples. This is a light dessert- kind of thin- If preparing for more than 6 adults, I'd double it. Tried a piece as is and one with caramel drizzled over the top. I didn;t think the caramel was necessary. It's just a simple, easy dessert. Even hubs loved it and he's usually a choc/pb kind of guy.

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2012
Made as stated except I had to use 8 oz of a colby jack/ cheddar cheese mix (the kraft kind with cream cheese) instead of American b/c I could not find it. I forgot to cover this in the oven but it still turned out great. Really good. The only thing that holds it back from a 5 star recipe is that it was just really good- like most homemade mac n cheese recipes- nothing stands out about this one. Will likely make again especially of I can find the right kind of Amerciacn cheese

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2012
Used a 4 LB pork shoulder and poured and entire 2 liter on top to cover it on the crock pot. Used 2- 18 oz bottles of Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce after I drained the root beer (after about 7 hours). The meat was fall apart delicious. Let it sit in the crock with the BBQ sauce for about an hour before serving. We like it with coleslaw and extra sauce on top. It was good but I was expecting WOW and didn't get it with this. Might try it again- it is super easy.

Fluff Dip for Fruit

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
So easy and great tasting. I wasn't sure I could use the sugar free/fat free kind of instant pudding since it is only a 1 oz pkg and the recipe says to use a 3 oz pkg which is the full sugar/fat version. Used the 1 oz pkg afterall with light cool whip and a little almond extract (didn;t have any amaretto). Turned out really good- sat in the fridge fine for a couple days. Will make again. Would probably be best with the full fat version of pudding but for just us the 'lighter' version worked great. We liked it best with strawberries but bananas and apples were a close second.

Chunky Cheesecake Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
Used splenda, light cream cheese and only 1/2 cup whole wheat flour. These were really easy and great. Careful not to overcook- I checked mine at 25 min and thought they needed an extra 4 min or so- should have taken them out at 25 min. The middle was the best part. Definitely serve cold. I loved the choc chips in the cream cheese layer- not sure why some reviewers suggest to leave them out. The batter was hard to spread in the pan- there just wasn't a lot there but they turned out fine. I frosted mine with rich choc frosting from this site. Delicious.

Emily's Easy Sausage and Spicy Tomato Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2012
I halved the recipe. I used a 9.5 oz bag of Jimmy Dean turkey sausage crumbles (delicious and a time saver), a 10 oz can of Rotel tomatoes and 8 oz light cream cheese. I threw it all in the crockpot. What an easy and fast dip. Delicious! Noone would guess it took all of 1 minute to make! Will definitely make this again and again.

Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage, Endive, & Blueberry Salad with Toasted Pecans

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2012
Hubs liked it more than I did. The package of sausage gave the option of microwaving so I opted for that due to a time constraint. The kids wouldn't touch the sausage and I didn't love it although it was better in the salad. Next time I will def grill or brown it on the stove. The dressing was ok....seemed to be missing something....? I like the mix of ingredients and will try this one again.

Bacon 'n' Egg Bundles

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2012
Clever. Used turkey bacon- had kind of a hard time wrapping the bacon in a circle so ended up just kind of placing strips in the egg. Fun, lots of options, and the kids LOVED them!

Salmon Tango

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2012
Used 2 TB olive oil in place of the butter. This was pretty good but not nearly as great as the Delicious Salmon recipe from this site.
