Authentic Louisiana Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2014
The favors are spot on yummy, but I used cheater (canned) beans, reduced cooking time to a little over an hour. Everything else was the same and yummy. Might cut back a smidge on the cayenne as it will be even hotter tomorrow!

Teena's Spicy Pesto Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2014
I do not change recipes and rate them, so I made as stated. After tasting, however, I added some extra kick ( for personal taste), pine nuts for texture. Other than that, it was great. I would make this for a dinner party. Fast, easy and keeps well.

Baked Potato Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
This was a good base as it is, but I prefer a thicker "soup" so omitted 2 cups of milk, added more onion, a good helping of salt and pepper, did not mix the bacon in, just crushed on top along with some chives. We loved it. Makes a ton - there is only two of us, I will try to half-it next time.

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2012
Finally - cornbread that doesn't turn out too crumbly and dry. I usually do not alter recipes on the first go, but I took the advice of the others and reduced the baking powder (i used 2.5 tsp) and I also soaked the cornmeal in the milk while getting the rest of the ingredients out and pre-heating the oven. I have no idea if those steps did anything, but this cornbread is great so I will stick with it.

Berry Cheesecake Parfaits

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2012
I di dnot like these at all, nor did most of my guests. Served them as small parfaits at a brunch. They look pretty but don't taste that great. Tastes very much like it all came from a box. Kids might like this.

Prosciutto Asparagus Spirals

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
These are yummy. I have decided that it would be easier next time to wrap the Proscuitto around the asparagus first (by itself) then wrap the dough with the cheese spread on it. You don't need much of the spread - you don't want it to overpower the rest.

Brown Rice and Black Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
I do not generally leave bad ratings, but I cannot for the life of me figure out why this recipe is rated so highly. This recipe might be an ok base for something better, that is about all it is, at best. NOTE: I DID NOT CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT THIS RECIPE - MADE IT AS IS. As is, this recipe is bland and not worth all of the pans it takes to make it. It is relaltively healthy, I will give it that. It needs some serious kick.. I travel quite a bit for work and my husband (the leftover king when I am out of town) does not even want the leftovers.

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
I generally do not rate recipes that I alter, but this alteration was out of a missing ingredient and I feel it's missing did not change the overall result. I did not have enough broth, but as it stands, it really didn't need it as I prefer a thicker Jambalaya. I also added brown rice to the dish rather than cooking seperately (with about an hour left) and it was perfect. Used the Cajun Seasoning from this site - yummy dish - and easy! Makes a ton, freezes quite well.

Creamy Chicken and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
Super easy, super fast. End result is good - as expected with a canned soup recipe, but anything you can knock out in less than 30 minutes that tastes good is certainly a plus. I added asparagus as I had some that needed to be used and it was great so I assume you could up the health factor by adding just about any veggie in addition to the mushrooms and onion.

Marinade for Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
Tasty and easy - marinated chicken breasts for several hours - left a little aside (prior to marinating) for baking - good stuff.

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
I made a batch of these as is - which is why i can actually rate the recipe and will say they were not quite lemony enough for us. I made them again and up'd the lemon extract to 2 tsp and they were much better. I love the base of this recipe though - they make chewey cookies that, if baked right, have a little crunch on the bottom. My huband devoured several. Made for a Spring-time Tupperware party and everyone asked for the recipe!

Penne with Spicy Vodka Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
Made it exactly as is - loved it. thank you! Note that it may seem that the tomatoes add too much liquid - but it goes pretty fast. I used it with homemade spinach rigatoni - yum.

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
Please do not change everything about a recipe and then rate it as if you actually made this recipe... I made this as is written and it was wonderful. It will be my go to potato soup - super easy, common ingredients, FAST and yummy. If you are afraid itwill be too soupy then omit some of the chicken stock - you can always add more later. This ia a great recipe - thanks for posting it!

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2010
I have made this as is and I have "tweaked it" and it is great both ways. this is great on it's own, but also a great starter for alternatives. I only use two whole eggs and 5 egg whites, non-fat cheese and add some feta on top for a little salt - great either way!

Best Black Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2010
These were great made as is - except I drained the beans (by accident - didn't read it through) so I ended up using a bit of beef broth to compensate and just fine. Next time will not drain the beans and I am sure it will be just as good.
