Bachelor's Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2000
This was absolutly WONDERFUL! Very easy to make and didn't have to worry about making dinner that night, since it sat in the crockpot all day! I only used 1-1/2 cans of tomato soup (that was all I had on hand), and it still turned out great! I left out the mushrooms (my fiance doesn't care for them) and added a couple cut up red potatoes. I'm passing this one on to everyone I know!

Easy French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2001
I'm wondering if the "20 seconds" was a typo and it actually was supposed to be "2 seconds". The inside was very soggy, so matter how long I cooked it. I would suggest just dipping each side of the bread really quick, and using very THICK bread! I used plain sandwich bread (like I usually do) and it did not turn out good at all. I'll probably give it another whirl with my own suggestions.

Oven Beef Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2001
All in all it was pretty good! I took a couple of the suggestions and added an envelope of onion soup mix and decreased the water to 1 cup. I also added a bit more of the potatoes and carrots, but not much. It did seem soupy at first when it came out of the oven, but it thickened up afer it sat a few minutes. Not a bad beef stew! Worth giving a shot! :)

Marinated Ranch Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2001
Was very good! I'm not accustomed to broiling, so the edges got a tad burned, but overall it was a good and easy dinner!

Cinnamon Griddle Cakes

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2001
These were a nice change of pace. After awhile the frosting got to be too much, tho. Would be just as good with butter and maple syrup!

Chocolate Lovers' Favorite Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2001
Wow!! This was the moistest, densest, cake I have ever had! Definatly have lots of milk close by to help wash it down with! I made it to take to work and had none left to bring back home - everyone said it was awesome and several asked for the recipe. After reading some of the other reveiws, I used vanilla instead of almond - but will try it with almond another time. YUMMY!!!!! ***Just a side note - after reading about others saying that it fell apart, be sure to let it cool for about 10 minutes in the pan on a wire rack! I think it also took a bit longer, but I just kept testing it until it was done. My choco chips didn't sink, either. :)

Tunnel of Fudge Cake II

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2001
I was only going to give a so-so reveiw, but the cake tasted MUCH better the next day! Not that it was bad the first day, but you know what I mean! A couple of notes...don't use all of the milk for the glaze! WAY TOO MUCH! Start with just a couple of tbsp, and work your way up until you get a good drizzling consistancy. Also, I found it impossible to add the fudge filling without touching the sides of the pan...but it turned out fine. Just make sure that your pan is well greased and floured. Cake would also be good without the fudge filling. Nice and dense!

Corned Beef Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2001
MMMMMMMMM!!!! I did make the following small changes: I used 2 tbsp of instant minced onion, and reduced the bread crumbs to 1/2 cup with 1 tbsp melted butter. Turned out really yummy! I was pleasantly suprised!

Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2001
Oh how yummy!! The only thing I found wrong was that it called for WAY too much of the teriyaki, ranch, etc. There's no way I could've used it all! What I did was brush the teriyaki over the chicken, then top with 1 or 2 tbsp of ranch dressing per breast, then sprinkled the cheese and bacon (used real bacon bits - yum). Don't care for the green onion. I also had sprinkled a bit of seasoning salt over the chicken while it browned. SOOOOOOOOOOO yummy!!

Ribbon Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2001
I really liked the cheese filling, although I didn't care too much for the meatloaf itself....but I'm thinking I'm just not a meatloaf person. My husband is and he liked it quite a bit. :)

Artichoke Tuna Toss

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2001
Ok - so I cheated and made this with canned peas and skipped the artichokes.....but it still tasted great! The frozen peas will make it look more appealing, I'm sure. There were quite a few peas... *UPDATE* This time I made it with the artichokes (although a smaller jar than called for) and frozen peas (no where near as many as called for due to DH being a veggie-phobe). It was delicious and my picky twins dug in - although the peas remained on their plates. ={

Aimee's Quick Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2001
It wasn't bad! My husband liked it, and I thought it was ok. I'll probably make it again - just not every week! Was VERY easy! I didn't use as much mustard or teryaki sauce - thought it would be too much. I thought there was too much grated cheese...but that can be easily fixed to suit personal tastes!

Vodka Mocha Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2001
It was ok. I don't think refrigerating it first helped the flavor at all. I think it would've been better warm.

Irish Cream Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2002
Oh wow!!! This was soooo yummy! My only drawback was that when I tried to take it out of the pan, it broke apart, but that was probably my fault (sometimes my cake comes out perfectly, sometimes it doesn't!). It was still incredibly delicious! I left out the nuts because I don't care for them. I will definaltly make this again!! **UPDATE: I made this for a get-together last night and I realized that I put 3/4 cup of Irish Cream in the glaze instead of 1/4 cup. It still turned out delicious!!!

Cinnamon Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2002
Well, my husband and I were able to eat it, but I don't think I will be making it again as written. I didn't even end up using all the spices - I had mixed them together and then sprinkled them on, and ended up having to throw some of the spices out because there was so much left over. Maybe it would be better if the chicken had been dipped in melted butter first...or melted butter mixed with the spices...or a mayo mixture combined with the spices. Dry chicken with just dry spices on top just isn't our thing, I guess.

Peanut Butter and Banana French Toast

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2002
Hmmm...perhaps it's just me, but I only found it ok. I didn't use any syrup or powdered sugar (how I had french toast growing up), so maybe that would've helped. I do think that 2 tbsp of melted butter to cook it in is WAY too much - made it too greasy fo me. I might try it again, tho.

Beef and Noodle Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2002
We made the following changes: 1)We only had a 1/2lb ground beef and 4oz of Velveeta, so we just halved the recipe. To make up for the missing cheese, we sliced up a bit of regular sharp cheddar. 2)We used rainbow rotini pasta. 3)We added some instant minced onion while we were browning the beef (I always do!). Even though we halved the recipe, and used a small baking dish, we couldn't see how to layer everything twice. We ended up just layering the pasta, beef, sauce, then cheese only ONCE. We were skeptical on how it would taste, but we actually liked it more than we thought we would! We both agreed we would make it again. My husband was the one to take it out of the oven, and he mentioned that as he was scooping it out, it was rather watery on the bottom (I didn't get the chance to look). I wonder if it was from the sauce. The ingredients say spaghetti sauce, but the directions say tomato sauce. If you use spaghetti sauce, I would suggest getting a quality brand - good and thick! We may add some garlic to the browning beef next time! Good recipe! Easy and quick!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2002
How many bananas does it take to make 2 1/3 cups? I used four (didn't measure), since that was what I had on hand. The banana bread turned out really good. =) I didn't find it to be any different than your average banana bread, but it tasted yummy just the same. =)
