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!

Northwest Steakhouse Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2008
I have a question for the submitter: Would this by chance be from the Northwestern Steakhouse in Mason City, IA? If it is, you are my new best friend. :)

Amazing Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2003
It made an easy, quick dinner! My husband was a bit skeptical from looking at the ingredients, but enjoyed it. I didn't bother with measuring the ingredients....I just spread some mayo on the ckicken, and then coated with crumbs until it looked about right. Next time I may cut up the chicken into bite sized pieces, toss them in mayo, then toss them in the crumbs. Thanks for the recipe!!

Easy Weeknight Tuna Pot Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
This was really good. I baked it for the minimum time (11 min) and thought it had a pretty golden crust. When I cut into it I saw that the crescent dough was still somewhat gooey underneath, so definitely add a few more minutes. I threw it back in the oven for a bit and now I think it's fine. Very easy!! :)

Christmas Wreaths

Reviewed: May 2, 2003
I first made these in the 3rd grade with my classmates - our teacher taught us how to make them. I've made them for many Christmases since! You can also make one big wreath, or mix in the cinnimon candies, and drop spoonfuls on the waxed paper to make "holly bushes". Also, you can also keep the mixture warm in a slow cooker while you're shaping the wreaths.

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!

Butterscotch Brownies I

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2006
I baked for the minimum amount of time, and I didn't have any problem with the sugar carmelizing. They turned out nice and chewy. I loathe walnuts, so I replaced it with another 1/4 cup flour. These brownies aren't overly sweet, so if you're looking for more flavor, I bet throwing in a few butterscotch chips would perk these up! Good recipe overall!

Chicken with Blueberry Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
I thought it was good. My picky husband and three kids didn't want to try the blueberry sauce, but I thought it was very interesting. It's worth noting that the chicken is quite good without it as well. I will say that when I added the vinegar (cider), the aroma was very overpowering so be prepared.

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!

Slow Cooker Roast Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
Wow! I was amazed at how easy this was! I did not leave it in the crock pot for 22 hours. Rather, I took the advice from another reviewer and started the roast at 7 or 8 am, add some carrots and potatoes at 1pm, and it was perfect to eat by 6pm! It was absolutely delicious! I used beefy onion soup mix and regular soy sauce. I didn't have any low sodium as others have suggested, but we didn't find it too salty. I also forgot to add the pepper (oops). Great recipe!!!

Creamy Chicken, Bacon and Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
This was pretty good. It just crossed over the line from being too bland, tho. Next time I think I will add garlic and/or onions to kick it up a bit. I cooked the chicken in a tbsp. of butter and sprinkled it with seasoning salt.

Oven Stew with Burgundy Wine

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2005
Overall, this was really good! I would agree that you would need to AT LEAST double the amounts of water and burgundy. I covered it tightly, and didn't use too big of a casserole, but it still got dried out (fortunately, it was still good!). I also added a couple of cut up potatoes. Next time I will also decrease the meat to maybe 1 or 1 1/2 pounds, and add more veggies.

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.

I thought it was a wonderful light cake and didn't think the pear flavor was too strong.

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. :)

World's Best Cream Cheese and Pineapple Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
I ended up using only 1 cup of pineapple because I didn't realize that I didn't have enough (note: two 20 oz. cans will get you 2 cups after it's drained!). It was still pretty good! Something different...I didn't find the garlic overpowering at all. I took it to a party last night and noticed that those who tried it came back for more. :)

Chocolate Peanut Treats

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
These were amazing! They were so quick and easy to make! I don't care for chunky peanut butter, so I used creamy. I also was out of semi-sweet chips and subbed milk chocolate chips instead. I took them to a gathering and everyone loved them. Thanks!
