Beef Bourguignon I

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
Fabulous and worth all the time invested! I made a few changes: used pinot noir because I couldn't find burgundy, didn't use the 2 onions in the last step but substituted with cut carrots which tasted amazing, used only 1/2 lb of bacon because I had maple bacon and didn't want to "maple- up" the dish. I also skipped the step of deglazing the pan with the marinate and just put the onions and carrots in and they deglazed the pan. I served it over mashed potatoes and it got raves for being such a decadent meal. I would totally make this again with the goal of impressing another group of friends.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
So good and so much better for you than what you get in the cans!! I used dried pink beans, added 4 chicken bouillon cubes to the 9 cups of water at the start of cooking and used jarred jalapeno rings because that is what I had in the house. Otherwise, I followed recipe as listed and this made a delicious side dish for fajita night. If you have the ingredients and the time, this is the way to go with refried beans.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
I would give this a 5 except that since I don't like cheesecake I can only give feedback, secondhand. I made two of these for Thanksgiving and everyone who ate them raved about them. I doubled the recipe for 2 pies and tossed an extra pack of cream cheese and an extra egg into the mix, based upon other reviewers. I served with Redi-Whip, you know, cream vs. oil. : ).

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
Love this cornbread!!! It's sweet and moist, just the way we like it up here in the Northeast. I followed the recipes to the T and it was great with our chili dinner and will be fabulous toasted for breakfast.

Easy Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
This was the first recipe that we tried in our new ice cream maker. I was attracted by the ease of prep based upon the lack of eggs and cooking. After looking at other reviews the only changes I made was using whole milk instead of 2% and using shavings from a dark chocolate Dove Easter bunny instead of chips. The results- delicious!!! It was not icy at all and was very creamy and flavorful. We will be sure to make this ice cream again.

Incredibly Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2011
Very nice meatloaf, from one who doesn't really like meatloaf. I took a few suggestions like shredding onion and adding a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce. I made mine free-form on a cookie sheet and coated one with brown sugar than ketchup and another with Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce. It was all good when it was hot and also when it was cold on sandwiches. Will definitely use this again

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
Excellent! Like others I boiled the chicken and shredded it. I sauteed the onions and peppers then added the shredded chicken along with the cheese, sour cream and salsa (which I drained to avoid the water-y issue). I also had a little cream cheese that I threw in- altogether the filling was nice and creamy. I also used salsa on top and it made for a fabulous, not too runny, quick meal. This will totally be made again.

Cola Pot Roast II

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
Unanimously got 5 stars at my house- even from the most picky of eaters. The only changes that I made was using rump roast (as it was on sale and how I ended up looking for a pot roast recipe in the first place) adding a can of beef gravy as I didn't have the powdered stuff. I also cooked in a slow-cooker, 3 hours on high then 6 hours on low- adding carrots for the last 3 hours of cooking. It was DEEEEE-LICIOUS!!! The meat pulled apart with a fork, the carrots were seasoned all the way the way through and the gravy had a fabulous flavor. We'll be watching the grocery store fliers for the next rump roast sale so we can have this fabulous meal again. Perfect for a cold New England night!
