Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
I added a pack of ranch dressing mix to the cream cheese. With that addition this is 5 stars. Used other suggestions of picking LARGE peppers so the heat was milder (worked) and soaking in a bit of cold water after de-seeding/de-veining...

Fish Chowder

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
As written this recipe is 3.5-4 stars. It is a good base. However, AS IS the recipe is bland and a little "off". Once I doctored it, it was 5 stars. I noticed many (if not most) people rating with 5 stars made changes. How can you give a recipe 5 stars if you have to change it? That means the original recipe isn't a 5 star recipe...the one YOU created with changes is! *ahem, okay stepping down from soap box* LOL Anyway, I also made changes as recommended by other viewers (cooked a few slices of bacon chopped; skipped the mushrooms; cooked veggies in 1T bacon grease, 1T butter; also used fat free half and half instead of evap milk; added a LOT more OBS as well as a little cajun seasoning; used only half of the flour and instead mashed about half of the cooked potatoes with my potato masher for thickening without a goopy flour taste; and finally, garnished with fresh cut chives and that cooked, crumbled bacon...YUM). Although I did make adjustments, I still say kudos to AMYTHE for sharing this good base recipe. Thank you!

Peach Pie the Old Fashioned Two Crust Way

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
Okay not sure if it was something I did, or the recipe, but I followed the recipe exactly, even added the lemon juice in a colander to let extra liquid run off, and my pie still didn't set! The pie filling was all over. We let it cool a few hours before slicing so that wasn't the issue either. Not sure. Any way flavor was great though.

Bacon Cheese Frittata

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2011
Fantastic! Not only was this tasty, it's also versatile and super easy!! I did add mushrooms, chives, bell pepper, and potatoes, so I also added 3 extra eggs and cooked it in a 9 x 13 pan. Highly recommended! Yum! Oh btw, out of many picky eaters in our family of 5, ALL 5 raved over this even the child who will not ever eat anything with eggs in it!!

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
Like this version best...the sour cream/salsa addition at the end does make a great addition. But the fam still didn't rave. It's good, but not great. Better in tortillas tho!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
Best next day. Followed recipe exactly. We liked it, husband loved it. As for reviews saying it's watery, it is, but if you shred the chicken when it's cooked through, and let it cook a bit longer with the lid off, the chicken will soak up most of the juices.

Savory Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
Eh. I thought it was just me, but the family, and our 4th of July guests pretty much all felt the same way. These were simply "just okay." It wasn't bad, just didn't taste like the flavors were meant for each other.

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
Very good! The flour makes a difference, to keep the "soggies" away! (I did use one extra egg, because we like a higher egg to milk ratio)

Nobody's Strawberry Watermelon Shakedown

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2011
DELICIOUS!! And kid approved too! Had to make two minor subs bc of what I had on hand (plain coffee creamer for the cream, sweet grapefruit juice for OJ), and also added more vanilla just for our own personal taste. I did have to add a little water to get it to blend, and after adding a little at a time (may have been up to 1/4 c or so) it finally blended into a nice shake/smoothie consistency. This was fantastic. A++

Waffles I

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2011
Family likes these. Texture was good. I did find them a little bland in the taste department, but added extra vanilla which improved the flavor.

Spaghetti Pie II

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2011
Thought this was good! Loved the texture and flavor of the "crust". I used real shredded parm, not the stuff in a can. Also used my own meat sauce (because I had it on hand already made). Also added more cheese on top, for our family's preference. This was a nice way to step away from the same ole same ole sketti!

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
Maybe two and a half stars.... I wanted to like this so much after all the good reviews. We didn't care for it. The sour cream added a "tanginess" that we didn't care for. It wasn't cheesy tasting at all. Just not our preference. Two of our three children and my husband said it was okay but it wasn't something they cared to have me make again, the third child and I thought it was too sour and didn't care for it at all.

French Toast Bake

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
Like others said, this was just too soggy, even with additional bake time. The flavor was good, so I'm giving it some stars for that...but it was just too soggy and if I had continued to bake it any longer it would have burnt on the bottom. I had also done as recommended by others and flipped the pieces in the morning, no luck. So, my thought is that there is simply too much milk in the recipe. The egg would set up, the milk would be the cause of sogginess. So, I will give this one more shot with less milk.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
Delish! I used red wine in place of the water for a little extra flavor, and added a dash of nutmeg to the ricotta (you can also add your parm to the ricotta instead of in it's own layer if you'd like). If I have a big enough pan I do an extra layer and use all the yummy sauce! As per other reviewers I just soaked the pasta in HOT water for half an hour (while making the sauce) which softens them perfectly. It saves me a step, another pan to wash, and a humid kitchen :D
