Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
Mine turned out perfectly. I stuck more or less to the recipe except for a little less onion and salt. I added some spicy mustard because I thought mozzarella, eggs and broccoli would be fairly bland. I couldn't taste the mustard at all but maybe it sharpened up the taste of the cheese. I just nuked frozen broccoli florets, roughly chopped and put them in the bottom of the crust (I didn't saute them w/the onion) w/the cheese over and poured the egg mixture over all. I mooshed it all around a bit w/a fork to be sure the eggs contacted all the solid bits. Perfect! Not at all wet and plenty tasty.

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
Great idea! My version is slightly "doctored up" but didn't change things appreciably. I didn't have the tomatoes w/chilis, so I subbed in tomato salsa. Worked fine! Also I took others' suggestions and added a can of cream of chicken soup. I ladled the soup over brown rice - yum!!! Thanks for a great recipe that can be altered with the same tasty results!

Whole Wheat Ginger Snaps

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
Let me say up front: I am not a good cookie baker. I'm always afraid they will be underbaked and so I consistently overbake them. However, I made these exactly as written (save for the cloves, which I don't care for) baked them for the full 15 minutes and they are absolutely PERFECT!!! Yay me! I wish I'd had coarse sugar, as that would have shown up better after baking, but they still have the perfect cracks and taste great! I love this recipe and thank you for posting it!

Corn Scones

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
This dough IS very sticky, but I just dropped balls of it and patted them into 1" thick circles, about 3" in diameter. They still puffed up and ended up looking (and tasting!) very similar to Red Lobster's biscuits. Very un-scone-like. Not that I'm complaining - they really taste good! They'd be great with chili or soup for dinner but I just reheated one in the microwave for breakfast and that was good, too!

Meatless Mincemeat Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
This is my first mince pie. I used Nonesuch mincemeat (which isn't meatless!) and cut the sugar in half (and could have omitted it). I figured I'd use my deep dish pie pan so I used 4 small apples and the whole 27 ounce jar of mincemeat. After I'd let it chill overnight I discovered that even with the extra filling it was too little for the deeper pan. I used a regular pie pan and it was fine. I'm not sure how it would have worked with only 18 ounces of mince and 2 apples, though! I also added about 1/4 cup of flour, as the filling had a lot of liquid. It went over surprisingly well. A very tasty pie!

Gooey Butter Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
Awesome! I made almost exactly as written, except for a bit of milk in the cake layer to make it spread in the pan more easily and baked for approx 42 minutes. I also put some pecan halves on top, but did it too early in the baking process as they were swallowed up as the cake puffed! Oh, well, still tasted delicious. I will make again, maybe try the chocolate version!

Cheesy Brat Stew for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
I don't like bratwurst. But I thought this would be good for a potluck and appeal to many, so I gave it a try. I think it turned out great! I don't like to review recipes that I've tinkered with, but I don't think what I did changed it appreciably, except for the cheese. I used turkey smoked sausage, fresh, chopped onions and a whole container of sliced mushrooms. I forgot to add the cheese, but I thought it was great without! Using the turkey sausage it probably could use more seasoning, but I'm not one for using a lot of seasoning, so I liked it fine! Thanks.

Country Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2010
YUM!!! What a great idea. I, too, cut the oil to about 1/3 cup and added all the bananas I had on hand that were inedibly old, which was 5. It turned out moist and delicious! I also added chocolate chips to appease the chocoholic in the family and it was great. Now it's Chocolate Chip Banana Cake! Thanks for the recipe!

Double Frosted Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
This is good with some extract added to the buttercream layer - I used coconut pudding mix w/some coconut added, but it'd be great with mint extract or raspberry extract (and maybe a little food coloring!) These are so easy, taste great and look like you worked! Thanks!

Easter Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
I, too, put the hashbrowns in the bottom of the pan, but first I sauteed the peppers and onions to soften them, then mixed them with the hashbrowns and some salt and pepper and some of the cheese. I found that the hashbrowns on the bottom were rather tasteless otherwise and if I didn't mix some cheese into the potatoes, it all floated to the top of the casserole as it baked. Otherwise, delicious recipe with relatively few ingredients!

Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
These are probably the best cake mix cookies. They go a little flat because of the butter, but it's that very butter that gives them a richer flavor than the ones made w/oil.

Creamed Spinach

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
Darn it, it's just too delicious! Everyone ate it and liked it. Too bad - I wanted it all for myself. I did cut back on the garlic, of which I'm not fond, but no one missed it. I think I'd add even more cheese next time!

Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
Easy, filling and tasty! We all loved this casserole. I kept to the recipe, except that I used fat free sour cream (and I just might have used more cheese....;) Delicious! The only thing I might do differently next time is to saute the onions before incorporating them. They were a little underdone. I also refrigerated it overnight, so I baked it for about a total of 1 hour and could have gone longer.

Cheddar Baked Olives

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
I love these and they're so easy to make. My tip: don't chill the dough. I find it's so much easier to stretch it around the olive if I warm the dough in my hands slightly. Otherwise it's just too crumbly and appears to need more binder (like butter). With it warm it all comes together. I use small olives so they're just a bite or two each.

Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
These aren't too bad, and considering how easy they are, this is a great standby recipe! I used a carrot cake mix with the pumpkin and my son (who rarely lets a fruit or veg cross his lips) loved them! They do turn out bumpy because of the thickness of the batter, but they do rise a bit and just look hearty and rustic! Mine were slightly gummy the next day, but maybe I should have baked them slightly longer. Will try with other cake flavors!
