Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
Thank you for the best sweet potato recipe ever! I followed the advice of other reviewers and cut back the white sugar to 1/3 cup and the brown sugar to 1/2 cup. I also borrowed the idea of using the mixer for the potatoes, and the strings did stay attached to the beater, allowing me to just discard it instead of scraping the beaters into the bowl. It was absolutely delicious, and will be the only sweet potato casserole I will ever make again...great taste, consistency, and presentation!

Buffalo Chicken Phyllo Wraps

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
These were wonderful - will definitely save this and make them again! This is my first attempt at working with fyllo/phyllo dough, so that part turned out just OK, but I will hopefully get better with experience. We like things moderately hot but not fiery hot, so I put only 2 T of hot sauce in the chicken mixture, and it turned out perfect for us. I also used the chive & onion sour cream because our grocery store didn't have the garlic version.

First Prize Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2013
This was simply delicious! I served it warm, with vanilla ice cream. I baked it in a 9x13 pan instead of a 9" round, and I did make the optional topping, using the same ingredients as for the crust, but half the amount, mixed it loosely, then sprinkled over the fruit. I'm keeping this one!

Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
I baked it for 20 minutes covered and another 20 minutes uncovered, and it turned out great! I also added some garlic powder as someone else had suggested, and it was good, but I think next time I will stick with the recipe as is. Unfortunately, no leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

Vickie's Beer Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
I didn't have self-rising flour so used someone else's suggestion of 3 c all-purpose flour + 4 1/2 tsp baking powder + 1 tsp salt. Thought the butter was a bit much so only used about 2/3 of it but bread was a little dry compared to the Tastefully Simple recipe so would put in all of the butter next time. Would also probably put 1 Tbsp more sugar in next time, per other reviewers. Didn't allow myself enough time to get the beer to room temp so put it in a water pitcher with warm water.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
I just got done making this for dinner, and had to review it - it is wonderful! I am not a mushroom fan, and was excited to see a stroganoff recipe without them. Every last bit was eaten up, even by my picky son. I think I could have doubled the recipe and it still would have all gone! I used the Zesty Good Seasons dressing. I was concerned about the chicken burning, so I did add about 1/3 cup white wine at the beginning, and am glad I did, both to keep the chicken moist, and add more flavor. I also cut back the cream cheese to 4 oz and stirred in about 1/2 cup of sour cream. I served it with wide egg noodles. I am glad I had peas, broccoli and carrots on the side, because the presentation would have been pretty bland without them. I ended up stirring the peas into my own serving, which complemented the taste so well that I may add them to the crock pot with the cream cheese and soup next time. Thanks for the great recipe; we will be eating this again soon!

Rhubarb Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
This is the best rhubarb dessert I've ever tasted! I did add 3-4 cups rhubarb instead of the 2 cups the recipe calls for, and am glad I did; the tartness of the rhubarb helps to offset the sweetness of the 2 1/2 cups total sugar in the recipe. My family asked me to make another one as soon as the first one was gone. Wonderful recipe; thanks!

Guacamole

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
This was absolutely delicious! I had never attempted making homemade guac before, so I trusted the previous positive reviews and it certainly lived up to them! Definitely will make it again!

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
I just made this recipe for the second year in a row, and had forgotten how good it is! I can't believe I served the canned cranberries for so long; they are nothing like the real thing in this recipe! It's the perfect combination of sweet and tart. I cooked it for 15 minutes and also helped along the process with a potato masher. I hadn't started it in enough time, so when it cooled off slightly, I put it in the freezer for about a half hour to speed the cooling process, then transferred it to the fridge. Thanks for this simple but tasty recipe!

Balsamic Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
These carrots are delicious! The combination of balsamic vinegar, olive oil and brown sugar proves to be an excellent one. Very tasty! Cooking time to get the carrots tender (at least to my taste) was substantially longer than 10 minutes, though, even with the carrots cut in half.

Country Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2015
Excellent scalloped potatoes & ham recipe! Even better as leftovers. I had only cream of chicken soup and only turkey gravy on hand so used those; I don't think it would matter much what you used. Great way to use up leftover ham!

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
Thank you for this delicious recipe! I had only made enchiladas once before and they turned out awful, but the positive reviews here prompted me to try again. I made it exactly the same as the recipe, and the blend of the flavors was wonderful!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
Oh, my goodness, this is heavenly! We were invited to some friends' house for fajitas and I volunteered to bring a Mexican dessert. I came across this recipe and couldn't wait to try it when I read the reviews. It is absolutely wonderful - one of the best desserts I've ever tasted! Instantly a family favorite here!

Egg Salad Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
This was very good! I cut recipe to 3 servings, which actually yielded 4. Tasted very "dilly", so reduce dill weed to 1/4 tsp. Added 1/4 tsp paprika. Served with lettuce. Dill spears and carrots on the side complemented very well.

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
All I have made in my breadmaker since I got it a few years ago are the boxed mixes. Maybe I was just unlucky in my choices of mixes, but none of them was that great. When I saw this I thought that it was worth a try. Wow; it was great! The texture and flavor are great, and it was so easy to make! I may just leave it on the counter instead of stuffing it away, and just make fresh bread every few days! I intend to make it again for sandwich bread for leftover turkey. Thanks for the great recipe!

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
I wanted to try something besides the canned yams with marshmallows and brown sugar this year, so gave this a try, and am so glad I did! I used about 4 large yams (instead of sweet potatoes, because that's what my husband came home with - apparently they were marked incorrectly at the grocery store!). This was very good! It is quite rich, so next time I may try to cut down on the butter slightly. This is going to be on the Thanksgiving menu from now on!
