Chicken Cordon Bleu I

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
I absolutely LOVED this when I made it for Sunday dinner yesterday. I am so grateful for those that have tried it before because I was able to combine several ideas to get mine right. I did not have to go through the trial and error period by reading other reviews. And the chicken breast that I purchased from Sam's were so huge that even after being cut in half and pounded, my husband had a hard time eating 1. I incorrectly combined several reviews that were seperate and ended up having a sauce that consisted of sour cream, cream of chicken, white wine, lemon juice & splenda (because I squeezed too much of the lemon juice into the mixture). But even my particular Southern mother (who is the epitome of a Soul food mom) liked it which indicated to me that it was great. I love ths site. I will never have to purchase another cookbook again.

Stewed Cabbage

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Cooked this in addition with Chicken Cordon Bleu (from this site) for yesterday's dinner and it was fabulous. Never thought of adding tomatoes to cabbage but am glad I did, but I used sun dried tomatoes which made them oh so tasty. I also left out the celery which I am not a fan of and cooked it in beef broth. I cooked a few slices of maple bacon along with the onions prior to inserting the cabbage. Great website.

Shrimp Brochette

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
I prepared these as though I would grill them (even placing them on skewers in individual foil), but instead I cooked them in the oven. I also dropped honey teriyaki sauce in each one prior to placing in the oven and they tasted so good! I did have to fry the bacon a bit prior to wrapping them to make it easier to wrap them, and after that it was easy as pie. No longer will I have to purchase these in a restaurant @$35.00 for 6.

Green Chile Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
This soup was my all-time favorite soup when I lived in Houston and only Luby's cafeteria sold it and only on certain days so I used to stock up on it and freeze it to have for lunch daily. Now I have my very own recipe to use as I please. This was awesome. I followed several suggestions from various reviews and it made a difference. Although I did add rotel to it at the end as well as springs of thyme and jalapenos at the end after I had left it in a crock pot for a good portion of the day and I used raw chicken wings. Will definitely be making again.

Strawberry Trifle

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
I love the different reviews on here because it allows me to add as I see fit from several others. My family said that it looked as if it belonged in a magazine. I'm glad I made 2 because it went very fast. One note: I purchased 3 boxes of cheesecake pudding and it was not enough so I had to settle for a french vanilla variety for a 4th box @ the local HEB on the day of Thanksgiving. I also added Eagle Brand milk to the mix as well as added the heavy whipping cream (another reviewers suggestion) to the mix as a whole. It went faster than I anticipated.

Hummingbird Cake I

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
Made this for Thanksgiving and only used half the amount of bananas suggested based on reviews of others that indicated that too much made it taste like banana bread. Also added crushed pineapples to the icing mix for more pineapple taste as well as to keep the icing from being so thin. I had to stop playing hostess to get my husband and myself a piece as it went that quickly. Everyone (reviewers) that thinks it is sweet enough without the icing is certainly missing out on a treat. I made both versions but ended up throwing away half of the the "icing free" version (glad I only made a small heart shaped one). Also followed suggestion to make a topping fo ricing out of cinnamon, brown sugar and pecans. That was superb. Will definitely make again.

Oven-Fried Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
My husband is a pork chop fan and since I have altered his eating choices so much (he has actually trimmed down) as of late, I decided to break down and find him a recipe for them that did not require frying. I followed this recipe to the letter and they were so awesome that I even tasted them (& i hate pork). Great job on submitting this one! Will definitely make again sometime in the future.

I used angel hair pasta and ommitted and deleted various vegetables as I saw fit. Used sun dried tomatoes, mushrooms, yellow/orange peppers as well as shrimp because my husband has to have MEAT. Also added worchestheshire sauce. Great dish.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2013
No cinnamon used, everytime a recipe calls for sugar I use Splenda, no 1 notices. Also added raspberries and few strawberries. Good antioxidants. Never enough to take to work the next day when these are made.

Kool-Aid® Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2013
A friend of mine taught me this recipe in the military 28 years ago in the mini graham cracker cups when we lived in the barracks and could not have a lot of groceries and did not have cars to go anywhere :-). I still make it today using the individual crusts (they come with little tops). An entire pie is too enticing, and I only use lemonade. Glad to see this recipe on here, it brought back memories.....

Taco Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2014
Made exactly as described and it was fabulous, although a bit runny from the picante sauce. This recipe made me realize I would prefer meat so I guess mine will have 8 layers :)
