Easy Taco Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
I followed the recommendations to use taco seasoning and sour cream instead of mayo. I did not add water either. I put the top layer of chips and cheese on the last 6 or 7 minutes as was recommended. I wish I'd stayed with fresh tomatoes, even so it was a great dish and easy to make. My husband was insistant that this was a do again. This recipe will be a regular in our house!

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
I've made these twice according to the recipe with the same batch (I froze half the dough). The first time they turned out OK, but they were a bit dry and crumbly without much peanut batter. I baked them for the recommended 12 minutes and although they did not look overdone, they were. I made the other half last night, but added a half cup of raisens (1 cup for recipe) and baked for 9 minutes - they turned out great and it was amazing the difference in peanut butter flavor. Great Recipe - be careful not to over bake!

Fish Tacos with Honey-Cumin Cilantro Slaw and Chipotle Mayo

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
made as directed several times now. It is a lot of work but absolutely worth it. these tacos are spicy hot (be careful with the adobo sauce!), crunchy, and toped with a hint of sweet sauce. each time i plan to try with corn tortillas, but the recipes is sooo good there is no point in messing with perfection!

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
Made exactly as directed - I did use butter flavored shortening. I measured out by tablespoonfuls and baked 8 minutes at 350. All who tried the cookies wanted more and they looked so perfect many thought they came from the bakery! Very, very tasty and not overly sweet. I will make this recipe regularly.

Cod with Italian Crumb Topping

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
I make fish fairly often and look for variations. Read a few reviews for this recipe and eliminated the egg, mixed 2T light mayo with about 1t fresh lemon juice and brushed fish with this mixture. I lightly sauted two green onions and two minced garlic cloves in about 2T olive oil. I used this to grease my pan and placed the fish on top - yum! I did not use garlic powder, salt, or italian seasoning, but used italian panko crumbs. Everything else the same. I made creamy mashed potaoes and topped the potatoes with the fish. Nice presentation and everyone raved over how good it was.

Ultra Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
I've made these potatoes twice now. The first time I was low on broth and did not boil the potatoes in broth, but just added when mashing. They were good and a do again. The second time I boiled as directed in the broth and could not believe the difference it made. The broth enhances the flavor emensely. They were fabulous and I am doubtful I will ever make them anyother way. I am making them again today for my New Years dinner :-)

Halibut Supreme

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
I wanted to make something special for New Years. I made this - followed a review to replace 1/2 the cheddar with parmesan cheese, otherwise followed the recipe. The fish was very moist and flavorful and would be a good dish on it’s own. However, with Halibut being so expensive - I gave attention to sides and presentation. I topped the fish on ultra creamy mash potatoes, sided with seared scallops and parmesan asparagus - all great recipes found at allrecipes. I'm a decent cook and will say this was one of the best dishes I've ever made. The presentation was good and the taste was phenomenal! We will be raving about this meal throughout the New Year. Happy New Year and thanks for a great recipe!

Seared Sea Scallops

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
followed advise to toss ingrediants in bag including parmesan cheese and added about 1/4 cup of white wine to the pan. cooked quickly to sear and give the carmelized color, but not overdone to avoid rubbery scallops. Beautiful and tasted great!

Black-Eyed Pea Gumbo

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
Following reviews, I made just a few changes. I added 3 Hillshire Farm Hot Links diced and only used 3 cans of peas. The hot links add enough heat to eliminate the need for red pepper or hot sauce. This is a very different recipe for me - somewhere between chili and gumbo. Served to family and surprise guests - ugh! Everyone really liked it. Thanks for the recipe - it's a keeper!

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
I followed some healthier tips by replacing half the flour with whole wheat flour and the oil with applesauce. I've seen these suggestions many times and thought I'd give it a try. I also used half brown sugar and half white sugar and I increased the blueberries to three cups. I had to increase the bake time to 24 minutes as well. The muffins turned out great and did not taste healthy at all! The muffins have a perfect balance of sweetness to the slight tartness of the blueberries. I think the sour cream was the secrete to a deliciously moist muffin. This is the perfect muffin - I will make over and over again!

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
Super easy and delicious - these words seldom go together! I procrastinated going to the grocery store and wanted to whip something up from my somewhat bare cupboards - I was out of Worchester sauce - very concerning, so I substituted 4-5 dashes Frank’s hot sauce and 4-5 dashes liquid smoke to a doubled recipe (be careful with liquid smoke – a dab will do ya). I added two minced garlic cloves and ¼c dry onions (let them soak in water to reabsorb moisture for 3-4 minutes prior to adding) to the ground beef while browning. I used all the other seasonings including the garlic and onion. This was so tasty my husband ate what was left on my plate! What a find; I know this recipe will be a staple in my house. Thanks for sharing!!!

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
After reading several reviews, I added 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla and increased the oats by 1/2 cup because my batter was a bit moist. I did not have the butterscotch chips, so I tried Herseys Cinnamon chips instead - OMG. This is the best cooking I have ever made!!! Rave reviews and recipe requests from those who have had the pleasure of satisfying their sweet tooth with this wonderful, wonderful cookie. Thank You. If you took all the 5 star cookie recipes, this would certainly be one of the top prices! Thanks for sharing!

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
I have made this dish probably a dozen times and just realized I never rated it. This dish ALWAYS turns out great and is requested often! The recipe is very forgiving on ingrediants too. Tonight I used dried onions instead of fresh and added mushrooms - and served over wheat pasta. Yum! I frequently add chopped garlic too. This dish is excellent over brown rice - adds so much flavor. If you like basalmic vingegar even a little bit, you will love this recipe. Make sure you brown your chicken first to make sure it stays moist after simmering.

Wonderful Waffles

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
The difference between waffles and pancakes is the testure. These waffles turn out crunchy on the outside with a soft middle - so good. I followed the recipe exactly as written but add bacon. I cut bacon into pieces and cook 2/3 in the griddle then add the batter - about 1/2 slice per two waffle griddle. These were the best waffles i've ever made. I may add vanilla next time like some of the reviews suggest, but should I forget - won't miss it. These are fantastic; follow the recipe directions. The result is worth the fuss.

Basil Chicken over Angel Hair

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
what a nice alternative to spaghetti! Not complicated and easy to make. I marinated my chicken with a small lemon for several hours (tenderizes beautifully) then cooked it with 1 garlic clove minced and about 1/4c diced onion. I then prepared as directed adding 1/2 cup mushrooms (didn't need it). Turned out great!

Magnificent Cheesy Brown Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
made as directed adding cooked chicken. Extremely tasty with the cheese. I will be adding cheese on a regular basis to my brown rice. Amazing how good it tastes bringing boring brown rice to popping yum-yum. The onions and peppers gave a sweet balance. This is a super easy recipe that you will make over and over again.

Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
Very easy and absolutely Delicious! I used 1/4 agave syrup (low glycemic index) in place of the sugar, added almond slices, and garnished with blue cheese. I also followed another review and used raspberry balsamic vinegar in place of the white wine vinegar. It turned out very sweet and tangy. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!
