Dawn's Candied Walnuts

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
I've been making these for two year for Thanksgiving now, and I always follow the recipe to the letter. They're absolutely perfect and EXTREMELY addictive! Make sure that you separate them with a fork on waxed paper immediately after they come out of the pot.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
These were not to our liking. Maybe it's just that it wasn't my taste, but...I usually love black bean burritos. My stomach flipped over just from the smell, and I didn't like the look of it either. This is probably the worst tasting thing I've ever made.

Apple Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
I have made this pie for three years now exactly as it's written. It's made me a mini-celebrity around our friends - everyone loves it! Definitely use granny smiths; they're really good in this pie. One tip - mix the crumble by hand and don't melt the butter. It's the only way to get it just right. Also, if you over work it, it'll turn to mush, so when it looks like little peas, it's done!

Garlic Cheese Chicken Rollups

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
This was delicious - I felt like a fancy chef when those delicious smells started coming out of my oven! I just had plain breadcrumbs, so I mixed in the parm, and then some basil, oregano, parsley, garlic powder, pepper, and dried pesto spices. I coated both sides of the chicken with the spice mix. For the filling, I found a whipped garlic cream cheese, and that worked out really well. It was a little lighter and very flavorful. Definitely a hit in our house!

Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
To sum it up, this is amazing. Use paste instead of sauce, and feel free to play with the spices. I usually dump in whatever I have on hand. (Lots of garlic and chili powder for sure!) Try this with the Beef Enchiladas II on this site!

Beef Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
I've been making this dish with several modifications for over a year, and it's definitely a favorite at our house. I use the Italian seasoned ground turkey from Jennie-O to make it healthier. While the turkey is browning, I make a batch of Red Enchilada Sauce from this site--it's better than the mixed stuff, and isn't much harder to do. (Note: you'll probably have a little leftover sauce.) Finally, I make super-sized enchiladas and stuff them into a 9x9 pan for the big eaters in my house.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
This was my first attempt at lasagna, and it's definitely made the Hall of Fame at our house! I used some of the modifications suggested by others. I soaked my noodles in hot tap water for 20-30 minutes. (You can use your lasagna pan and just dump the water and dry it out before you add more ingredients.) I also didn't add extra salt or add the fennel. I used cans of crushed tomatoes with basil added. (Muir Glen is my favorite brand for canned tomatoes.) And, instead of Italian sausage, I used a roll of Bob Evans sausage with sage. Oh, and I used 1 1/2 pounds of lean ground beef to make the sauce heartier. Here's another thing that worked great: I made a double batch of the sauce and used some of it as a spagetti topper a few nights later. I still had sauce left, so the next day, I added two cans of drained, rinsed kidney beans and cumin, pepper, garlic powder, and chili powder to taste. Voila! Easy chili! I got rave reviews on all three meals, and it couldn't have been easier.

Fruited Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 21, 2007
Oh my, oh my. This was excellent! I boiled diced chicken on my stove. Then, I used my pampered chef food chopper and made quick work of the celery, nuts, and apple. (I didn't add the raisins or onion.) I threw it all together with the halved grapes and eyeballed just enough mayo to moisten the ingredients. I was a little cautious about the curry powder, so I added it in little by little with the pepper. Mmm. Don't be intimidated by the long list of ingredients! Use a little food chopper, and it goes really quick!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2006
These were amazingly good. I added more blueberries than called for and ended up with a dozen muffins. The strusel topping makes it!

Black Bean and Corn Salad II

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2006
This is amazing. I also used red instead of green onions and lemon instead of lime juice. (That's what I had on hand.) Do yourself a favor and use Green Giant Extra Sweet Frozen Corn...yum. I forgot to add the pepper, and I'm glad I did. I can't see how it could taste any better! Thanks for a new favorite recipe!

Sausage Shepherds Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2005
This was absolutely delicious! My husband really likes this recipe. He's a big eater, and it even fills him up (with leftovers)! I sprinkle a little paprika on top of the potatoes for some color. Next time I'm going to try the layer of cheese that someone else recommended.

Apple Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2005
This was my first pie ever, and it was so easy and DELICIOUS! Wow. This one scored me lots of points with my husband. We especially liked the crumble top. I used four different kinds of apples for this--get big ones. I found that if you mix the crumble with your hands, it's easier to get the right consistency.
