Texas Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2009
My first time making this enchilada sauce was a big success! I may add more chipotle for a little extra zing next time, but you can bet I'll be making it again very soon. I suggest doubling or tripling the recipe and making it ahead and freezing if you're going to be using it in other recipes. It's that good!

Roasted Garlic

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
Great! I'd never roasted garlic before, but I'll be doing it often in future.

Beef Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
This filling was great. However, I used some spring rolls with instructions written entirely in Japanese! I'm going to use egg rolls next time, and have already purchased them - in English.

Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
This is very good. I cut the roast a little differently - slicing lenthwise thinly (1/2 inch) and rolling it as I go, to end up with a wide, flat piece. Then I spread the filling onto it and roll it back up and tie in several places. The ends especially should be tied very snugly to keep it all in place. I then sprinkle the paprika on top before roasting. I use a meat thermometer and remove the roast at 160 degrees F. (Because of the filling, I test the temp in several places.) Never dry and always delicious!

Banana Pudding I

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
Really great flavor! After reading other reviews, I doubled the recipe, and it was perfect in my 9x12 baking pan. Also used egg yolks in place of whole eggs. I'll make it again very soon, but I'm going to find someone else to stir the custard as it heats! My arm got tired.

California-Style Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
I'm delighted with this recipe. I did do some things a little differently, like using my own fresh tomatoes and leftover cooked rice. Basically, I believe this recipe could be adapted to quite a few different tastes...which I will probably do in future because I don't always have all the same ingredients!

Cream of Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
Really good. I used fresh tomatoes from my garden and pureed most but not all, leaving a few chunks. It was almost like a bisque. I'll be making it continually until my tomato harvest is done. Then, well, I'll have to go to canned...

Cream Cheese-Filled Coffeecake With Fruit Preserves and Crumble Topping

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
This was a big hit with family and friends. I'm thinking to double the recipe next time and using a 9x13 pan.

Applesauce Cookies II

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2009
This is a wonderful recipe! I've made it several times, now, and it also works with just about anything that resembles applesauce in texture. Of course, I began with applesauce and they were great, but it also works with cooked pumpkin, raw carrots, or zucchini grated in the food processor. When I substituted them, because they are less acid than applesauce, I added two teaspoons baking powder. I've become very experimental lately, trying to use up leftovers in the fridge!

Self-Rising Flour

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2009
The first time I used this recipe, it was a rescue measure, but now I use it all the time as a convenience and space-saver! I no longer need to keep a separate canister for self-rising flour!

Taco Seasoning II

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
As attested to by the 2 teenaged boys who left only enough for a single taco each for myself and daughter, this is tops in taco seasoning!! I agree! I may have overdone it slightly - used the entire recipe for a couple pounds of ground turkey. Didn't have cayenne pepper, so used about a teaspoon of chipotle, which is a bit milder, but it went over well, anyway.

Ham Potato Scallop

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2009
This is great comfort food! I don't use many prepared foods, so I used fresh potatoes. Because I was running late, I parboiled the sliced potatoes for 5 minutes before mixing with the other ingredients. If you do this, either don't use too much of the water they were cooked in, or use dry milk (no added water) in place of the milk called for. They're apt to be too soupy. (Ask me how I know this!) You may want to add a little salt if you use fresh potatoes. I'll give myself more leeway next time I make this and won't have to parboil them and I will still use less water, because they don't need to be rehydrated.

Crispy Rosemary Chicken and Fries

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
This is an excellent dish for a busy day. Tasty and doesn't take a lot of prep time. Note: Being a lazy (and cheap) cook, I place the chicken and potatoes into a saved empty bread bag, Pour in the oil, toss a bit, add the herbs, toss a bit more, and put them on a large baking sheet with sides. Then I toss the bag! No bowl to wash!

Easy Pizza Sauce III

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
Perfect! Makes a lot and it's thicker than what you can buy, which I consider a great improvement. Just a note: I always add 1/2 teaspoon sugar to all my homemade tomato sauces. It's not enough to sweeten, just takes away the raw/bitter taste I often find with cooked tomatoes.

Sweet and Sour Pork III

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
This is really good! I buy pork loin when it's on sale, slice about half into chops, and roast the other half...except the end pieces, which I now cube and use to make sweet & sour pork. I often add it to stir-fried vegetables. Great dish!

Basic Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
Best frosting I've made - everyone loves it! I use the whipping attachment on my mixer and let it run for a few minutes to break up the little lumps in the powdered sugar. (I used to sift the sugar, but this is quicker and easier.)

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
Good recipe. I've made it twice already. Next time I will use a little less parmesan and make it a bit thinner. I love to experiment!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
Best ccc I've found - I had a bit of a problem - entirely my own fault, though. I use cookie scoops, and I thought that the one I used was 1/4 cup. When I got only 24 cookies from a doubled recipe,and had to bake them several extra minutes, I decided to measure my cookie scoop - ha! 1/3 cup! However, the cookies came out perfect, and I'll be baking them again - using the proper size scoop - very soon again!!!

Chicken Pot Pie VII

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
I'm giving it 5 stars, even though I did make a few changes. I made up 8 individual pies, served four and froze four. I used powdered onion and added 1/4 tsp sea salt to dough. For the filling, I made my own gravy with chicken stock and the liquid from the canned mushrooms. I skipped the green beans, added carrots and one chopped potato (I parboiled them), but may add peas to my next batch, which I will be making soon!
