No-Peek Beef Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
This was...pretty good. I'll admit that I didn't use wine (never do)...used beef stock. I doubled the liquids because I also added celery, Yukon Gold potatoes, and carrots. I was expecting a little more flavor from the soups. It was actually quite a mellow flavor...which wasn't really what I was wanting. It was pretty good...just not what I was expecting. Thanks for the recipe!

Coconut Cream Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
OH...MY...GOODNESS!!!! I consider myself to be a fairly good cook. In my mind, I'm an even better baker. However, I have NEVER baked ANYTHING that was as good as this cake! It was delicious! I wanted more for the frosting, so I took the advice of chibi chef and used the cool-whipped frosting from this site. Also, it only took about half of the syrup mixture to completely moisten my cakes. I would have been afraid to add any more than that. I will definitely make this many, many more times! Thank you so much for the recipe!

Cool Whipped Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
This was YUMMY! I used it to frost Coconut Cream Cake I from this site (instead of the one in the recipe). I doubled it (because I made the cake in layers and wanted a lot of frosting) and had some left over. I spread the leftovers between chocolate chip cookies, stuck them in the freezer, and gave them to my kiddos (who don't like coconut) and they were super happy! This frosting is delish...and versatile!

Quiche Lorraine I

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
My family was very happy with this quiche. I used heavy cream because that's what I had, extra sharp cheddar (I'm not a fan of swiss), and left out the salt (too much in the bacon and cheese). I will definitely make again. Thanks!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
Oh, ho ho! I didn't think my hubby could be any more pleased with my cooking...until tonight! I HATE rice pudding...I mean REALLY hate the stuff. I have always had it cold, gloppy, and bland. However, he LOVES rice...and adores rice pudding. So, I gave it a shot. I didn't change much...I used Jasmine rice because that's what I had, half & half (to make it a little richer for him), a good dose of cinnamon, and a pinch of nutmeg. He was RAVING! Both of my girls (7 & 2) LOVED it! I had to try a little bite just because...and I LOVED IT!!!!!!! Definitely will be making this again...THANKS!

Kelsey's Cheesy Bacon Breasts

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
I was expecting to be WOWed here, but this was just okay. I was not a fan of the mustard here. I seasoned my chicken before browning (I think this may have been overlooked?) and used Sweet Baby Ray's honey BBQ sauce. All in all, the taste didn't make up for the fat and calories in this dish...sorry! I probably won't make again. Thanks!

Springfield Style Cashew Chicken I

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
I just realized (when suggesting it to someone on the Exchange) that I've never rated this. I've made it many times and the only thing that I do differently is NO WHITE PEPPER. The listed amount is entirely too much. Other than that, this recipe is delicious and certainly tastes like the takeout cashew chicken around here! Thanks!

Best-Ever Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
I was pretty disappointed with this one. I make cakes often and thought I would give this one a go. It was tough...I don't know if it is too much flour or what, but it just didn't sit well with us. Thanks, but I probably won't make again.

Honey Bun Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
This was really good! I used a butter cake mix, so I replaced the oil with butter. Other than that, made as instructed. Next time, I believe I'll forego the glaze...the cake was great without it...and a little too sweet with!!! Thanks!!

Midwestern Pork Tenderloin Sandwich

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
My family loved this. I took another's advice and used saltines instead of cornmeal. I also used milk, then flour, then egg wash, then crackers...to ensure my breading stuck. This was great! Thanks!

General Tsao's Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
I am not a fan of General's Chicken...I can't take the heat! My husband, on the other hand, is addicted to the stuff! I finally decided to try to make it for him and used this recipe. He loved it! I took the recommendation of halving the cornstarch, but it was still pretty thick...so I'll probably use less next time...and I'm sure there'll be a next time. He really loved this! Thanks!

Sweet and Sour Chicken I

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
I was not happy with this recipe at all. The sauce was really lacking any flavor. Ocassionaly, I would get a really strong "vinegary" taste...and once and a while the sweetness would hit. However, this is not what I expect from a sweet& sour. I was expecting much more...sorry.

Chicago-Style Pan Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
I had to try this recipe because I saw it getting tossed around a lot on the Recipe Exchange lately. I made 2 (yes, 2) for dinner tonight. I pre-baked the crust for 15 minutes, as suggested by many other reviewers. I also used Italian Seasoning instead of oregano, because that's what I had. I didn't really measure the seasonings, just guesstimated. This was perfect. My husband could NOT stop raving about this pizza! I will ABSOLUTELY make this again! Thanks!

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
I loved this! It was a really delicious slaw! It is a little "wet" and sweet, but that's how it's supposed to be. I cut the sugar to just under 1/2 cup, used onion powder instead of diced onion (I was out!), and celery seeds instead of poppy seeds. I definitely see this in our future! Thanks!

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
I don't know what Kalua Pig is supposed to taste like...but if it tastes anything like this, I'm SOLD!!! My family DEVOURED this. Hubby was SO happy (which makes me happy!). I cooked it overnight on low...about 14 hours. Then, shredded it, mixed it back in the juice in the crockpot and left it on warm for about 2 more hours. It was amazingly simple and delicious! Thanks!

Restaurant Style Egg Drop Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
This is a great recipe for egg drop soup! It tastes very similar to our local restaurant's version. I left out the chives (I didn't have any, and we're not used to them being in there). I also used a little soy sauce (to taste) instead of salt. I followed others advise of adding the egg after thickening the soup and it worked very well. I will play with this a little to get it closer to what we are looking for, but for a basic recipe, this is it!!! Thanks!

Brown Sugar-Caramel Latte

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
I am soooo not a coffee drinker. Recently, however, I have started stealing hubby's cappuccino. He suggested I find an alternative...lol. I tried this and decided that maybe I am, just a little bit of a coffee drinker, after all. I didn't really measure anything...just eyeballed it. It could be a little sweeter, in my book...or maybe my coffee was too strong. In any case, I will definitely make again!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
Ok, I'm not a spaghetti fan. However, the rest of my family loves it, so I tried this recipe on them. I added more garlic to the meatball mixture than called for (we love garlic) and some dry Italian seasoning as well, since many complained of the meatballs being bland. I made smaller meatballs, so I got more than 12. I baked them at 350 for about 15 minutes (I just can't bring myself to throw them in the sauce raw...personal preference here, so no affecting the rating). In the sauce, I used 1 can whole tomatoes and 1 can crushed tomatoes (but I ended up using a potato masher on them anyway, so next time I will probably use either 2 cans crushed or petite diced). I also used dried Italian seasoning in place of the dried basil because I felt like it :P. When I tasted the sauce, I found that it was slightly acidic, so I followed the advice of another reviewer and used about 3/4 tsp. of baking soda...it worked perfectly. Foamed a little, at first, but after that went away, the sauce was wonderful. I served over Spaghetti Rigati (I think...the kind with ridges). I even ate a little! Thanks for posting!!!

Garlic-Cheese Flat Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
This stuff is great! I decided to make this as a side to "Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs" from this site instead of traditional garlic bread...just to make something a little different. It was sooooo good! I will certainly make this again...as a snack, as a side, as an appie...you name it! We loved it!

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
I like the idea. I wanted the dish to be awesome. It fell a little short. I'm definitely going to try again because I really, really want this to be something that I can make often. It was really rather bland. That's what I'll have to oomph up the next time. I love the reviews and I get many ideas from the reviews, but on this one, I doubled the sauce like some reviews mentioned and I think that was a mistake. Next time, I won't double the sauce and I will definitely add more to the chicken mixture and probably the sauce, as well. This has GREAT potential. It just needs a little work!
