Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2014
Made this exactly as written a few weeks ago for a simple dinner and it was phenomenal! Husband and daughter raved about it. My mom-in-law makes this every Xmas and I've always wanted to make it, so I'd found this recipe. Fantastic! Even better than MIL's but I won't tell her that. J Trying it again tonite, sticking it in fridge but this time with 6 eggs, 1C half-n-half, and layering it like a lasagna like other reviewers. BTW left salt out both times - plenty in the sausage already. Will update review after trying it layered style!

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2012
Very yummy! I doubled the recipe as my chicken breasts were very large. I could have laid off the spices about 1/4. Maybe mix up a full batch of spices but only put about 3/4 of the mixture on. I like spice but it was almost overkill. I did not use as much cayenne - just sprinkled a bit - to keep heat down. Nor did I sprinkle the extra garlic powder at the end - that would totally be overkill. Like another user I put 1/3 c chicken stock on with the lime juice at the end. then ladled sauce on chicken when plating. served with a homemade rice pilaf and the whole family was happy!

Quick and Easy Goulash

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2012
Very good! Looking for a recipe for "this kind" (vs. Hungarian) of goulash that my mother used to make us when I was a kid. My son is gluten free so I subbed Ancient Grains quinoa elbow noodles instead - first time I've used them and they were DELISH! I remembered mom's being less "Italian" so I used 2-14 oz cans of small diced tomatoes in juice instead of spaghetti sauce, and I used mozarella instead of cheddar. Added garlic, salt and pepper to taste. It was SO good! I like celery in mine so I sauteed some celery and put it in my serving, knowing my son might not eat it if he saw too many veggies. He loved it, and usually he won't try anything new!

Slow Cooker Latin Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
This is a fantastic recipe, and a great tasty gluten free and healthy option as well. Great on a crispy corn tostado or taco shell, with a bit of rice, avocado and good salsa (I like Herdez brand). I like to put a can of sweet corn and black beans in it. I've made this twice now; it makes a lot, which is great for freezing in small batches and taking out when you don't want to do a lot of work for dinner.

Ground Beef and Rice with Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
This is a good basic recipe for nights when you want to make a tasty wholesome meal but don't want to do a lot of work. To make it gluten free, I took the hints of other reviewers and subbed spaghetti sauce for the tomato soup and real cheddar for the processed cheese. Also, the rice directions were incorrect as someone else pointed out - it's always 1 part rice to 2 parts water. Don't let the servings rating fool you - as directed, this makes way more than 4 servings (and thus a lot less calories & fat per serving). Our family of four ate good sized helpings and only ate half of the casserole dish, leaving leftovers for tomorrow nite. Served sweet corn and salad sides and it was a hit with everyone, even picky son (the gluten-free one)!

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
Moist, tasty chicken! Kids loved it. Used Herdez salsa (the BEST). Served with Mexican rice (bought in mexican section of store) and corn on the cob. Perfect, satisfying meal, and easy to make!

Puppy Chow

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
Daughter told me about this one after moms at school made it for school treats. I became a hero after finding the recipe here... it is really addictive like others say. I use the store-brand cereal and add the peanutbutter like others say. I also used one reviewers tip about putting it and the powdered sugar in a paper grocery bag for a quadrupled recipe and it worked fantastic for mixing. Easy and a hit with all kids, and it is gluten free.

Chicken and Mushroom Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
Very good! Pretty much followed to a "t" except left out 1/2 C water and went lighter on oregano like other reviewers. Put in slow cooker like one reviewer did (with whole, frozen chicken breast).. Put mushrooms and milk in 1hr before serving and the mushroom had softened slightly but gave it an added texture that was nice (instead of super soft like in an overcooked soup). Husband loved it, and he's very hard to please. He even said he'd love to have this again, which is a very rare occurrence indeed.

Beer Batter Fish Fillets

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
This fish was awesome. Husband made it. He added Old Bay seasoning, garlic powder and onion powder. Cut back on milk and beer like other reviewers to make a thicker consistency. Also, soaked fish right in the batter and it stuck to the filets nicely. Great tasting recipe!

Onion Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
This is super easy and yummy rice. I like it better than boxed mixes, and it's so easy to make it healthier by adding veggies you like. I added some garlic and fine chopped carrot. Made a double recipe and put chopped chicken and green peas in it for an easy lunch for the following day.

Healing Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
This is great. I used beef base instead of chicken as I prefer it better. Great recipe.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
Oh my gosh these were fantastic! I was hesitant about the cream cheese (due to high-fat content), but I cut it down and used a light version. Also, used what I had on hand. Didn't have cilantro or bell pepper; didn't miss the bell pepper but definitely will make sure to get cilantro next time. I used a can of diced tomatoes (w/spices) as another reviewer suggested. Also froze leftovers and they were the best take-to-work lunch I've ever had. I added some leftover cooked chicken and some spanish rice to mine as well. It's a great basic recipe and you can add/omit stuff to your own taste. Thanks for the post!

Sky High Yorkshire Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
Husband likes yorkshire pudding as he's of mostly English descent. I've never cared for it until he found and made this recipe. He put it in muffin tins and it was so beautiful I just HAD to try it! He made them to serve with my yummy Sunday roast (with gravy), and it was the perfect accompaniment. We'll probably make these with the roast more often, and probably instead of mashed potatoes!

Creamy Caramel Flan

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
Delicious! Very creamy and rich. Got raves - was the hit of the dinner party. Very beautiful presentation. Served with optional crushed raspberries or chocolate sauce, but neither was really needed. Will be making this again!

Scotcharoos

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
These were so simple to make and turn out DELICIOUS! I took another reviewers' advice and didn't BOIL the pb/syrup/sugar mixture and they turned out beautifully chewy, not hard. Anytime you boil corn syrup it will turn rock hard: that's how you make rock candy. I also used 4 T butter in mine like another viewer... this probably helped with the nice chewy texture, like a rice krispy treat. Thanks for the recipe! I'll be making this for the family a lot now, I'm sure!

Apple Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2008
Great recipe! Just the ticket for browning bananas and apples ready for applesauce. I subbed half of the oil for applesauce I made with some of the apples. I also chopped the apples coarsely like other reviewers and they turned out as yummy soft morsels in the muffins. I left out the nuts as my son is allergic (too bad, I bet walnuts would be fantastic in this recipe!) I thought about making a cream cheese frosting to drizzle on top (like other reviewers did) but once I tried them out of the oven, I decided they are really too good without it. Would be great with icing if taking somewhere for a sweet treat though! I doubled the recipe (using 4 bananas and 5 small apples) and it turned out 2.5 dozen regular sized muffins and 2 dozen mini-muffins. I am freezing some to pop out individually for snacks and breakfast. Next time I might make with whole wheat flour or add some wheat germ or something to make a bit healthier yet!

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
My family and I make pizza about every week or 2 and had always used the dough mixes (in a pouch) --- not any more! This is simple, and even though it takes a little bit longer than the pouch kind, it is SO much better! I'd say it's as good as a pizzeria. Since we make pizza often enough, I bought the yeast in a jar - it's much more economical. I threw it all in my Kitchenaid mixer with the hook attachment and mixed in extras like grated parmesan, Italian spices and garlic powder to give it a bit more flavor. First time we put them in regular round pizza pans, but this time, just for kicks, we're trying spreading it into half-sheet jelly roll pans to make the pizza bigger and give it a thinner crust. But don't get me wrong - the regular pizza pan rounds gave us a nice thick, yummy crust that was oh so delicious. I like to bake my crusts for about 5-7 minutes first without toppings, then take out and decorate and put back in til the cheese is just golden on the edges. If you try this pizza dough recipe, you won't want store bought mixes or ready-made crusts ever again!

Easy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2008
These are terrific! Like other reviewers, I put it in a jrp, but instead of greasing it, I lined it with parchment paper so it wouldn't stick. Worked great! Can't have nuts due to allergy so increased the coconut 1/2c and used 1 c plump raisins. Otherwise, followed recipe to a 'T'. Daughter, who usually can't stand raisins, or anything healthy for that matter, loves these. Will definitely make these easy bars often, and may change up the ingredients here and there! Thanks for the post!

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
I've made these twice now, once w/less flour like other reviewers suggested and once to a "t". Both are yummy! Everyone has said these are the best brownies they've ever had. First time made them with choc chips, which made them even more chocolatey/fudgy! Probably my favorite, but the more flour one is very good too!
