Apple Cinnamon White Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2015
We enjoy this recipe immensely! I am not a big lover of cooked apple dishes, so when I first made this I decided it was more for my spouse than myself. However, if you dice the apples fine enough, the apples seems to melt into the cake batter so you get a great apple flavor without having to bit into a piece of soggy apple. I have made this recipe three times now in the past few months and I can tell that this will be a staple in our home. Thank you for sharing!

Easy Apple Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2015
We enjoyed this! A little less sugar next time...a tad too sweet for us....but we enjoyed it. It was light, refreshing and a good change from the usual old coleslaw.

Monkey Bread II

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2015
I am very happy to have found this recipe! I make monkey bread often and have always been lazy and have just used the tube of biscuit dough from the grocery store. Believe it or not my husband and I recently moved to a country that does not have tubes of dough! I searched for dough recipes using a bread machine and came across this recipe. I love it! It is tasty, easy to make, and takes no more effort than cracking open a tube of dough! Thank you for sharing. Someone in Afghanistan is now making monkey bread...

Hungarian Goulash I

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2014
I made this two times now and am a big fan. The second time I cooked the onions as directed but then threw everything in the crock pot on low for 8 hours. It turned out perfect. Also, I have a hard time finding sweet paprika so I just use plaine but then add a pinch of brown sugar in the pot as well. Simple and hearty. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2014
I follow this recipe to the T and I think it's great. I remember thinking when I made it for the first time that it wouldnt turn out. The taste is strange in its raw form, but onces it's slathered onto pizza dough and baked into the over its perfect. Sweet, salty, and spicy. I too make a double batch and freeze what I dont use for next time. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Flatlander Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2014
I won a chili cook off with the recipe a few years ago! If you like spice add a chopped jalapeno for an additional kick. Thank you for this recipe!

Island-Style Fried Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2014
This is one of my favorite recipes to cook anytime I have left over rice. The key to great fried rice is to use two or three day old rice! Whenever I use fresh rice for fried rice dishes it always seems to turn out so mushy. I think using old rice is best because it has dried out a bit while sitting in the fridge so when you cook it the rice remains in individual grains rather than lumping together. Also, I have never had SPAM before this dish and loved it! The saltiness from the SPAM and the sweetness from the pineapple really mesh well. Thank you for this recipe!

The Best Potato Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2014
This recipe reminds me of my mothers which I really miss. I loved this recipe... especially the banana peppers at the end. It gives it added texture and zing. I do use light ranch dressing... just to cut back on the fat a bit. You can't tell the difference.

Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2014
My husband is obsessed with chicken soup and often makes his own which entails hours of cooking. I love this soup because it doesn't take forever to make and it helps with his craving.

Slow Cooker Split Pea Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2014
great recipe for the crockpot! Other than using the sausage I didn't change a thing. Rather than the sausage I threw in two ham hocks. I let them cook in the soup all day then removed them, shredded the meat and added it back to the soup. The soup was a little thick at the end so I just added some additional stock to thin it to the consistency that I wanted. Very good... thank you for this recipe!

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2013
Looovvvee this! My only change is to add more seasonings to taste...use pre cooked chicken meat and lime instead of lemon juice.

Linguine with Clam Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2012
Loved it! I did use olive oil as others suggested, as well a a big handful of grated Parmesan at the end to tighten it all up. Also, a fair amount of salt to make the other flavors pop. So easy, delicious and fairly inexpensive. I won't be ordering this out at restaurants anymore! Thank you for this great recipe:)

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: May 24, 2012
Great dish because it's healthier than the classic version and because it so hearty. This would be a great dish to try on someone who demands meat at every meal. I didn't parboil of salt my eggplant before baking. I did bake it longer...about 14 minutes but everything else stayed the same

Lentil Soup with Lemon

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
Love this. When I was younger I was forced to eat lentils one night and vowed I would never eat them again. I found this recipe and made it for my husband, and now I make it for myself. The flavor is wonderful, its healthy, and easy to make. I wasnt able to find red lentils so I used plain. I cooked it ten minutes longer than recommended ( the first time I made it some of the lentils were still a bit firm) and added a bit more lemon juice to taste. Its wonderful.

Lebanese Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2011
This was so delicious and easy! I followed the recipe to the T and it came our perfect. I was worried that the lemon juice/sauce would be greasy from the chicken but it had great flavor. My only suggestion is to turn the broiler on after baking to brown the potatoes and chicken. About 5 min to render out the last bit of fat on the chicken and to crisp it up. Thank you for this recipe!

Thai Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2011
Taste Delicious! Very cool and refreshing although I think next time I will cut back on the sugar and add some read pepper flakes to the dressing. Its hits all the taste buds and the peanut crunch makes it special.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
Awesome! I used more ricotta than called for... a 2lb container with an added egg and parsley. Also it was a bit too salty so maybe next time I will cut the amount of salt in half.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2011
This is wonderful...and fool proof! I wasn't paying attention and added regular pudding instead of the instant and it didn't seem to make a difference. I did take another reviewers advice and added the tiny chocolate morsels so they wouldn't sink to the bottom while baking. It was delicious.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
Fair warning, these don't taste like pf changs. So if your going to make this thinking that it will be like pf changs they won't. BUT.. if you do want a good Asian wrap recipe this is a the one. I used ground chicken. I also doubled the sauce. Next time I will use less sodium soy because it was on the verge of being to salty. Also I will half the ginger because it was pretty strong. Pretty tasty!

Bill's Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
I love this and make it all the time. It is rich, creamy and sharp because of the blue cheese. When making dont skimp on a purchasing a good blue cheese because it makes all the difference in the world. Also, I have read some complaints about this recipe from other reviewers. Some state that it has too much mayo. It does have a "mayo" taste when you first mix it all together but your not suppose to eat it right away! Let is sit for at lease six hours, or make it the night before like I do. Also, yes, worchestire is in the dressing, I hate it by itself, but cant taste it when it is combined with everything. So people quite your whinning! Follow the directions, and let it so over night so it can work its magic. My favorite way to eat it....with grilled jerk chicken wings:)
