Scalloped Corn

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
Very straight-forward, easy to make, and delicious! I made this as a side for Christmas. Everyone loved it. The leftovers heated up nicely and tasted just as good the next day. While it tasted great the way it was, I think next time I will experiment by adding some fresh herbs (thyme?). I think adding some savory to the sweetness would be really tasty.

Lemon Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
While shopping for ingredients to make this cake, I realized the EXACT same recipe (sans the lemon-lime soda) is printed on boxes of the Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Lemon Supreme cake mix (Lemon Pound Cake). I went ahead and followed the box instructions and drizzled the cake with cream cheese frosting, and garnished with lemon and lime twists. Beautiful cake, tasted wonderful, and the perfect ending to my Easter dinner.

Orange Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
Very simple, quick and easy to make. I was hoping for a stickier glaze, but I will follow the recommendations of prior reviews using cornstarch next time. No complaints from my family/guests - everyone loved them!

Seven Layer Dip I

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
I made this for New Year's Eve and it was a big hit! I made a few changes to the original recipe: I added a packet of taco seasoning to the hamburger as I browned it. I nixed the salsa, although I think I will add that the next time. I also recommend using homemade guac or doctor up the store brand - I used spicy Wholly Guacamole, but I think the store-bought guac was lacking something, so I'll be making it homemade next time. I layered everything into a trifle dish and it looked really pretty - beans first, ending with the sour cream layer on top, garnished with the cheese and olives. Thanks for sharing this terrific recipe - it's extremely versatile and I will definitely be making it again! :)

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
I made these cookies today - delicious recipe! Very easy prep. I put the dough in the fridge to chill overnight - if you do this, remember to let the dough sit at room temp for about 30 minutes before you start rolling it out, otherwise it's rock hard. I will definitely make these again. Makes a ton of cookies, so make sure you have people to give them to - I'm sure they'll keep in the freezer as well.

English Toffee

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
I was really hoping for the best when I made this toffee. I followed instructions to a "T". I stirred non-stop until the sugar was golden and nuts were toasted and toffee mixture still turned out very grainy/chewy. Once I spread the chocolate on top, I placed in the fridge overnight to speed up the hardening process. While the toffee did harden, the grainy texture was still there. We had to throw it out. Now maybe there was something I did wrong, but after comparing to other toffee recipes, I think this one may be too sugary and perhaps lacking additional instruction.

Stuffed Peppers for Two

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
This made a very nice little meal for my husband & me. I substituted ground turkey breast for the ground beef. The filling reminded me of meat loaf (which is a good thing for us!). I served Zatarain's Yellow Rice as a side (there's rice in the meat mixture, but not so much to be afraid of using it as a side). The only thing I would change next time is maybe adding some extra tomato sauce to the meat - I like these types of dishes to have a lot of sauce (personal preference).

Slow-Cooked Pork Barbecue

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2008
This was really tasty. The flavors of the Coke & barbecue sauce blended well, but I think I'll cut the Coke in half next time because the sauce was a bit thin. This was a breeze to prepare.

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
Delicious. I've searched a very long time for my idea of a perfect squash casserole and this is definitely it!!! I am a cheese lover, so I added a bit extra to suit my taste - also added extra crumbled Ritz crackers on top. Ths will be a regular staple for Thanksgiving gatherings from now on. Even people who didn't normally go for squash seemed to enjoy it.

Texas Ranch Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
This was terrific! I served this over 4th of July weekend for a cookout and everyone loved it. I made a few changes - first, I used 1 c. sour cream & 1 c. mayo (instead of all mayo)...I also added a cup of shredded Cheddar cheese. I personally prefer this side slightly warm or room temperature, but it's good chilled. Since I like bolder flavors, I think I will add some extra Ranch mix. I will be using this recipe on a regular basis. Thanks for sharing!!!

Black Forest Freezer Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
I tried this pie out at a barbecue we hosted a few nights ago - everyone really enjoyed it. It's very quick and simple to follow. I recommend using a chocolate crust and chocolate ice cream (instead of graham crust and vanilla ice cream) - otherwise it doesn't seem reminiscent of a black forest dessert! I am a huge fan of ice cream, so my only change next time would be to add more ice cream and less 'fluff', as the whipped topping mixture is awfully rich. This is obviously a personal preference. Others may enjoy more fluff than I do. :) All in all, I will definitely make this dessert again. Try it, you won't be disappointed!

Lindsay® Olive Tea Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2007
I made these for my annual Christmas tea a couple of weeks ago. These dainty sandwiches were a huge hit. I used Pepperidge Farm Extra Thin white bread. I didn't have time to play with the recipe, but seems like there could have been a little something extra for flavor. I plan to experiment next time. But again, very delicious!!!

Chicken Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2006
This was pretty darn tasty. I prefer fresh chicken, so I stewed 4 large breasts and cut them up instead. I also added extra cheese and extra ritz crackers on top. My husband loved it. It was really interesting because the noodles didn't seem like noodles, yet they provided a nice, starchy texture like what you'd expect in a casserole like this. I wonder what potatoes would be like? I would even consider leaving the chicken out next time and serving as a side dish. Also, as weird as it may sound to others, I think this would be absolutely delightful with green peas mixed in, so I may try that. I'll definitely be making this again.

Mediterranean Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2006
This was incredible. Someone brought this to a potluck lunch at work. Very tasty - I think it would make an excellent light lunch or dinner with a green salad on the side.

Bacon Wrapped Smokies

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2005
These babies are finger-lickin' good! I took these to a potluck - it was the most popular item on the menu. I was the only one who didn't have leftovers to take home! The crockpot on lowest setting kept them at a nice temperature. I will definitely make these again! Also a great item for Superbowl parties, etc.!!!
