Three Cheese Chicken Penne Pasta Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
Easy and tasty. I used the 1.5 cups pasta the recipe called for, but I think it could have used 2 cups. I also added onion and garlic when I sauteed the chicken. It was very good! Looks like leftovers will freeze well.

Espinacas con Garbanzos (Spinach with Garbanzo Beans)

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2011
Yum! So easy, and delicious! It looks so simple, but the flavors really come together, and it tastes awesome. My husband and I ate the whole thing for our main dish! It does not have a very "spinach-y" taste, probably because of the seasonings. Try it!

Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2011
This is great - quick, easy, and tasty. We always have it with chili. It also makes great toast! My 3yo and 1yo like to eat it, too. I've had the best luck using a JW Dundee's Honey Brown Lager, but try it with different types of beer! I usually do a little less brown sugar than it calls for, but that is just our personal preference.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
very good and easy to make! i just made one modification - instead of 1 cup of oil, i did 1/2 cup oil, 1/2 cup applesauce, and it still tastes delicious and moist. next time, i might use 1/4 cup oil and 3/4 cup applesauce (unsweetened), and i will probably increase the spices by 50%. overall, a great, easy delicious bread!

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
Good and easy! Quick to make, these are ingredients I always have in the house. I used a whole 10oz box of frozen broccoli, instead of just the cup. My 1 year old loved it too!

Easy Pizza Sauce III

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2011
Good! Be sure to make this several hours in advance, so it can sit, and the flavors can mesh together. I love oregano, but I think this recipe had too much. I would half the amount of oregano next time.

Pizza Dough II

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2011
Great, easy recipe. Makes 3 14" crusts. I cooked one immediately, and froze the other two dough balls. They froze very well, and thawed and cooked up just like the fresh dough. The second time I made this recipe, I used 1/2 whole wheat flour, 1/2 regular flour, and it was still great. Next time, I will try adding some spices to the dough!

Good Dog Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2006
the dogs i made these for LOVED them! i wondered how much more a dog would love homemade treats (they snarf down ANY kind of treat!) but they really liked these. when given a choice between these treats and store bought, the dogs picked these! (yellow lab, and a collie/shepherd mix)

Grilled Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2014
Easy. I tossed everything in olive oil, instead of butter. Added some fresh rosemary and some seasoning salt. 30 minutes on the grill was fine, but I don't think you could overcook these - maybe even longer would be better.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
This is delicious, quick and easy! (Very inexpensive, too.) I used Cheddar cheese because that is what I had on hand, but I think you could use any cheese you want, and it would work. I also only used 2 cups of cheese because I ran out...but it seemed like plenty! I will probably stick with two cups in the future, just to make it a bit healthier. This would be good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! My five-year-old liked it too.

Pumpkin Chocolate Dessert Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2013
I was really disappointed by this recipe. I bake often, and I was really looking forward to this one, given all of the good reviews. The cake was bland, it definitely needs some salt. It was also on the dry side - surprising, because many people raved about how moist it was. The frosting looked beautiful, but hardened up and didn't taste all that good. I brought this one to a dinner party, and most people (myself included!) only took a few bites and left the rest.

Chicken Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2011
This was OK, a little on the dry side. I subbed cream of broccoli for the mushroom soup. Quick and easy, my toddler and preschooler thought it was OK.

Overnight Caramel French Toast

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
This is a fabulous recipe! As written, it is a 4 star. Do NOT use regular sandwich bread! You MUST use a crusty french bread loaf, it makes all the difference. Also, the additional 1/4 cup of white sugar is not needed. This is so easy to prepare, and can be made the night before, which I love! I've made it for Christmas Day breakfast, and Easter Brunch! Leftovers the next day are fabulous, too. If you're cooking this for more than 4 people, double the recipe, you won't be sorry!

Slow Cooker Dump and Go Cheesy Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
Quick, easy and tasty. I've made this several times, you cannot beat how easy it is to throw this together in the morning on your way out the door to work. I have tweaked it a bit, and usually end up using one can of cheddar cheese, and one can of cream of broccoli or cream of chicken. We serve it over brown rice with steamed veggies. Delicious!

Cinnamon Swirl Bundt Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
I followed the recipe exactly, and while the cake looked delicious, the "cake" part was very bland. It was missing something, and I couldn't put my finger on it. The sugar/cinnamon mixture was good, if it wasn't for that, I may have tossed the whole cake.

Mama D's Italian Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2013
I didn't care for this recipe. My loaves came out with a soft crust (I tried the steam bath that another reviewer mentioned). It was good, but I have other recipes that I like better. I had to use a LOT of flour.
