Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2014
I made this recipe with one slight variation of adding a little more garlic and letting it sit (the flavors become more intense) for a few hours. I actually submitted it in a Cinco de Mayo salsa contest and, out of 20 entries, it won both Best in Flavor and Best Overall.

West African Peanut Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2014
Delicious! I used chunky peanut butter because I grabbed the wrong jar, but it turned out lovely even with that slight difference in texture. Since the ingredients and recipe reminded me of a cross between Thai peanut sauce and a Thai curry, I had it with steamed Jasmine rice and it was sooooooo good!

Party Franks

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
My husband's family used to make this all the time and he turned me onto them. We use currant jelly instead of the grape jelly and kilebasa sausage instead of the cocktail wieners. Definitely don't tell people what's in it prior to them trying it - I was very skeptical before I tried it, but it is good!

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2007
Fantastic flavor! I made these for my best friend's bridal shower I hosted and everyone LOVED it. Because the shower was held 20 miles from my house, I took another cook's recommendation of broiling the cheese over the baguette slices and bringing those and the tomato mixture together separately and let everyone assemble themselves. This is a keeper!

Old-Fashioned Chicken and Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2007
This is a great recipe! I've made it twice on those cold days when you feel a cold coming on and it warms you to the bone! Only extra thing I did was add one clove of minced garlic. This is a keeper!

Chicken Tava from Turkey

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2007
I added a little bit of spices to add a little more flavor, but it was still a bit bland for me. Not terrible, but not a great dish in my opinion. Sorry.

Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2006
This was very good. I varied the directions slightly by omitting the olive oil/garlic mixture to dip it in. Instead, I patted the chicken breasts & dipped them in flour (with a little salt, pepper, and a touch of italian seasoning), then dipped them in beaten eggs, then dipped them in the bread crumb mixture. I also added a little bit of garlic powder to the bread crumb mixture. Turned out great with the linguini and spaghetti sauce we had with it. Very easy. It doesn't get 5 stars because as one reviewer said, it wasn't "knock your socks off" good, but it was very good.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2006
This seasoning turned out perfect - and I love the fact that I know exactly what's going into and can tweak it as needed (i.e. less salt, or more heat, etc).

Roasted New Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2006
VERY good! Only things I changed was that I cut the potatoes into smaller more bite-sized friendly cubes, added two medium cloves of minced garlic, and kept them in the oven at a lower temp for slightly longer. Also, covered with foil, but took the foil off for the last 10-15 mins to give them a slightly crispy texture. Awesome & I will keep this recipe!

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2006
VERY good flavor! I cut the potatoes into 8 pieces for more bite-size friendly chunks, added some minced garlic, and cooked them at a lower temp for slightly longer. I do agree with another reviewer about it using too much olive oil and will cut down on it next time, but they turned out great te first time, so this is definitely a keeper!

Bella's Rosemary Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2006
I guess I just don't like the taste of too much rosemary. They turned out good, and I followed the instructions, but they just wern't to my liking. I'll stick with the Roasted Red Potatoes recipe I found. Sorry!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: May 6, 2005
So I got a can of Hershey's cocoa powder and lo-and-behold - almost the exact same recipe was on the back of the box! The two differences was that their recipe didn't have the frosting part and it was titled "Hershey's Best Brownies." I do have to agree with what one other reviewer said about the frosting...the honey does make it taste a bit off (in my personal opinion). If one was to make this with a frosting, I would probably opt for a different frosting recipe or one out of the can. I also encountered a problem when making the frosting - when I tried to mix all the ingredients together, they just balled up into little balls and wouldn't blend until I started slowly adding a bit of milk bit by bit to help smooth it out. The brownie itself was pretty good - not too bad, not great. A bit heavy on the butter side, but I understand most brownie recipes tend to be. If you like heavy brownies, this is great, but again, opt for a different frosting.

Pot Roast in Foil

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2004
This turned out great! I hadn't had pot roast in years and my family moved overseas a few months ago, so I decided to try it. I did alter it a bit (some by my choice, some by the recommendation of others). I cubed the beef (fairly large cubes, about 2-3 inches in thickness), browned the beef on all sides a bit in a little olive oil (as others recommended), added cut mushrooms, carrots, and onions, doubled the amount of condensed soup and onion soup mix, increased the water to 1/2 cup, and cooked in the slow cooker for about 7 hours on low. Served with mashed red potatoes...WOW was it good! My boyfriend and roommate both loved it! I'll definently make it again, but next time, I'm gonna stir it a few times while it's in the crock pot. But, definently a keeper!!
