Best London Broil Ever!

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2007
This was delicious and easy! I took the others suggestions and added 2 TBSP. Soy Sauce and I also used diced tomatoes, of which one can was a tomato and sweet onion mix which was perfect! The meat cooked up perfectly and was so tender! All of my kids loved it and went back for seconds, even my pickiest eater! I can't wait to pass this recipe on to my sister, mom and grandma, they are going to love it! Thanks!

Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2007
I followed the recipe exactly, except I used a Butter Pecan cake mix since I didn't have a yellow one. It was incredible!!! I didn't have a great banana bread recipes before this, but I do now! This had a yummy quick bread texture, I would never know this started with a cake mix, it really tastes like I slaved over it. And my house smelled like heaven as it baked. This recipe is a total winner! Thankyou so much, I will be making this one for years to some!

No Bake Cookies I

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2007
I made this recipes twice following the directions and ingredients exactly and they turned out crunmbly each time. The second time I even decreased the cooking time to 1 minute, and still a crumbly mess. They tasted good, but I hate how they crumble everywhere. I am still looking for a chewy no bake cookie.

Sensational Steak Sandwich

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2007
I omitted the green peppers since I didn't have any, I used extra beef broth instead of the wine, and instead of spreading the horseradish on the bread, I added 2 TBSP. of it to the crock pot with the cooking liquid. I didn't use the mustard on the sandwich bread, and I made up individual sandwiches in hoagie buns, then heated them in the oven to melt the cheese, and it was a huge success! This is delicious, and a bit like a cross between a cheese steak sandwich and a french dip. I also used a lot of extra mushrooms since my husband and I love them, and this is one recipe I will be making over and over again! The leftover liquid from cooking used for dipping is so tasty, we loved it! Thanks!

Red Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2006
Because of the comments on not enough liquid and sauce, I placed my roast in the pan, covered it in the sauce prepared from the recipe, then covered the pan tightly with foil and baked as directed. I then added the veggies and covered it again with foil to bake for the second half, and I never ran out of the sauce, and had enough left to make the gravy. I followed every other part of the recipe exactly, and this was DELICIOUS! I am making it again and I am also passing it on to my extended family, it's just so good! Even my two pickiest eaters gobbled it all up!

Chicken Tacos

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2008
Wow! So delicious, even my super picky daughter that hates chicken ate her entire taco, and loved it! I followed the recipe exactly, except I doubled it, and now I am wishing I had tripled it because every last bit was eaten right up! So light, fresh and lemon-y, a refreshing change of pace for tacos, and one I will be making again and again, thankyou!

Pineapple Lemon Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2007
I originally gave this 3 stars, but I came back and upped it to 4 after tasting it again after it chilled overnight in the fridge. This is a lot tastier the second day. It really needed some time to let the flavors blend and mellow, otherwise, I only tasted a lot of lemon from the cake, and it overpowered everything else. By day two it was really smooth, light and refreshing, and something I think I will make again, but now I know to let it chill overnight before serving. Oh, and I used 12 oz. Cool Whip and it was almost too much, so I don't know why it calls for 16 oz. in the recipe, it would be spilling over the sides otherwise.

Chicken Egg Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2008
So So Good! I made two for dinner the other night. The first one I made exactly as directed with about 1/4 tsp. salt, and we all LOVED IT! Every single one of my children went for seconds, as did my husband and I. Yum! (my crust browned very fast though, and next time I will leave the foil on for all but the last 10 minutes of cooking time as my oven may run a little too hot.)The second one I made omitting the ham, adding a 10 oz. pkg frozen cut broccoli on top of the bacon, added about 1/2 tsp salt to the egg mixture before pouring it over,then topped with the remaining cheese and baked it as directed. Also very good and just as fast and easy like the original, but really the original was the better of the two. This is now my only quiche recipe, it's so delicious and so easy! I never would have thought to use the crescent roll dough for the crust. Thank you for sharing this gem!!!

Cranberry-Pear Tossed Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2008
Delicious! I followed this recipe to the letter except I used olive oil instead of the canola, and I only used 2 TBSP instead of the 1/3 cup. I loved everything about this salad, but next time I will serve the blue cheese on the side as I have several children that do not care for blue cheese, but loved the salad enough to still eat it, just picking out the unwanted cheese bits. We all agreed this one is a total keeper, and one I will be sure to make again and again. Thank you!

Basic Fondue

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
Delicious! I followed the recipe exactly except I omitted the ground mustard since I was out of it, and I tossed the shredded cheese with some flour as recommended by another review . It turned out perfectly, and the entire batch fit perfectly into my 2 quart mini crock pot, on "LOW", where it stayed the perfect temp for our dinner. The kids loved dipping all sorts of fun veggies in the yummy fondue, and I loved how fast and easy it was to throw together. Thank you for sharing this gem of a recipe, this is a keeper!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2008
Loved it! Yum! I followed the recipe exactly, using a Honey Mustard BBQ sauce. Although I did as one other review suggested and added some extra BBQ sauce at the end for thickening instead of cornstarch, and it was perfect, the extra BBQ sauce is the secret! All of the other BBQ Chicken recipes I have tried in the past were never good, and always seemed to be missing something. Well, this one is "THE" recipe, and I will happily make this over and over again. This is perfect and a total winner, we all loved it, thank you!!!

Spicy Pineapple Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
I made this for a Family Christmas dinner and it was a HUGE success! I did have to turn the "heat" down since there were going to be children eating this too. I made it using 1 tsp. horseradish and 1/4 tsp. ground mustard, and it was still really flavorful, just without being too spicy. In fact I felt I could have actually just cut both the amounts in half and used 2 tsp. of each instead and it still would have been nice and zesty without burning anyones mouth off. I also used an apricot-pineapple jam instead of just a plain pineapple, and it was delicious. It was a fantastic dip and devoured quite happily by my family. I will be making this again and again! Thankyou!

Potato Minestrone

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2007
I made this with diced canned tomatoes w/ sweet onion since I was out of dried minced onion, otherwise the only other changes was to make 1 1/2 times the recipe, except I only used 10 oz. of the spinach and it was plenty. Also, as per other reviews, I made this in the crock pot a day ahead. Stuck it in the fridge, and re-heated for dinner the next day and the flavors had blended beautifully without any overpowering spinach flavor. The soup was delicious, my kids ate it all up. The only thing I would change is I did not care for the mealy texture of the garbanzo beans in the soup, but I still loved every bite. Just might omit them next time. But it didn't ruin the yummy soup by any means. Also sprinkled a little parmesan cheese over each serving of soup. Yum!

Creamy Vegetable Sandwich Spread

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2010
Delicious! I halved the recipe since I only had one package of cream cheese, and I also mixed in about 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. My kids love this spread on tortillas with a few slices of ham and rolled up, it's so good and makes a quick and yummy lunch. Thanks for sharing, this is a keeper!

Baked Bar-be-Que Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
I followed the recipe exactly, using drumsticks, and I only added some salt while I was sprinkling the garlic powder, and then I used Sweet Baby Ray's bottled BBQ sauce. This recipe is awesome! This is exactly how I always wanted my BBQ chicken to turn out, and it never did. Until now. So delicious! Thank you for sharing this one, it's a definite keeper for sure!

Uncooked Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2007
Everyone loved this! I made mine in an 11x8 glass dish since I don't have a trifle bowl. I did my layers as: cookies, pudding, bananas, cookies, pudding, bananas, pudding, then crushed the remaining cookies and sprinkled them on top. Covered it, and chilled it overnight and served it the next night for dessert, and it was inhaled! Seriously easy and so delicious, I will be making this again happily as well as at the insistent request of my family! Thankyou!

Meaty Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2007
I made this on the stove top since I was short on time. I did everything as stated in the recipe except I used 2 cups of pasta. I cooked it on medium high, brought it to a boil, added the pasta, cooked it for about 15 minutes until the pasta was done. It was not a soup by then, more of a pasta dish w/ a red sauce, which we ate with parmesan cheese sprinkled on top. We all liked it, excpet we all agreed it was a bit salty. I would suggest cutting back on the salt, and adding more if needed after a few taste tests. I WILL be making this again, on the stove top and also in my Crock Pot. Great with a green salad and crusty french bread! Thankyou

Avocado Dressing I

Reviewed: May 14, 2010
Fabulous dressing! I did decrease the blue cheese to 1/4 of a cup, but only since I knew some of my kids don't like blue cheese much. They gobbled this dressing right up! So delicious! I added a few TBSP of milk to thin it a bit, but this dressing is also delicious without any changes. Thank you!

Blueberry Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
I used this recipe since it didn't require an elctric mixer, and my mixer is on the fritz. First off, the crumb topping melted right off the bat in the oven and the butter went straight to the bottom, seeping through the muffin paper liners and made a mess when you tried to eat one. The overall taste and texture were barely ok. Really underwhelming. I did give this 3 stars since my husband was the only one that liked these. My children and I let him eat them, and I will be looking for a different recipe to use, this one was not even close to what I was hoping for.

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2007
After reading the reviews I made this using 5 eggs, cut the milk down to 1 1/4 cups, and increased the broccoli to 2 1/2 cups. I also used colby jack cheese since I was out of mozzarella, and pre-baked the crust before adding the quiche filling, for about 10-15 minutes in a 350 F oven. But it baked up beautifully in 50 minutes, and was perfectly set and tasty. All of my children gobbled it up, and my pickiest eater even went back for thirds! A real yummy hit, so delicious, and one I will be making over and over again! Thanks!
