Best Ever Sausage with Peppers, Onions, and Beer!

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2012
This was great- so easy & tasty! Made it as written except halved it and didn't use any red peppers b/c I only had green. (also used kielbasa b/c that is what my husband bought but next time I'd use italian turkey sausage I think). Made it w/ some steak fries but might try rice next time b/c the sauce was yummmmy.

Magic Cookie Bars from EAGLE BRAND®

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2012
Yum, came out just like when I was a kid! I followed the tip to mix the crumbs & butter in the pan on the stove before transferring to the pan- I had done recipes in the past that said to sprinkle it on & always had problems w/ the crust. I omitted nuts & added some toffee bits for a little extra flavor.

Creamed Chicken over Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2012
This was like a green bean casserole w/ chicken on it...my husband liked it but I was on the fence. I used some Penzey's chicken stock base instead of granules and also sprinkled some Penzey's northwoods seasoning on the top for a little extra added flavor. Way too much sauce for my 2 chicken breasts, I would half it for just 2 breasts in the future. But super easy & things I usually have around which is great!

Tortilla Rollups IV

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
I love these types of roll ups when other ppl make them so I decided to try them for a recent get together...quite delicious but I also only used 1/2 the fiesta ranch packet- I put half in & then tasted it and felt it was on its way to too salty but half was good. I added diced red pepper for some crunch. The only thing I did wrong was spread too much on the tortillas, it was too much filling per piece. I tried to spread it thinly but I guess not thinly enough and will do it more sparingly next time. This time I used 5 12 inch tortillas, next time I will spread it out to 7 or 8 I think!

Chicken and Broccoli Braid

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
Great family friendly dish (I think- my kids will be trying it tomorrow!). I made them into individual pockets instead of the braid for easy freezing/reheating & portioning for my 2 yr olds. There was too much filling for 1 can of crescent rolls so I baked the rest in a glass dish & ate it myself on crackers. I love that I have all the ingredients in my pantry/freezer pretty much all the time. To make my life easier I used a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. I didn't have bell pepper on hand but would use it next time. I did steam the broccoli ahead of time mostly b/c of the kids, they're more likely to eat it if it has a less distinct texture.

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
Enjoyed this a lot- I did pound the chicken to make it grill more evenly and it turned out better than most of our grilled chicken which we tend to overcook out of fear of undercooking! I think the sauce helped protect it from getting all burned. We served it with some grilled asparagus with a dijon vinaigrette. Yum!

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
I love this sauce!!! I don't tend to use the anchovy paste b/c I dont keep it on hand but everything else is stuff we always have & it is so easy to whip up. I make pizza for my twin toddlers a lot also, and I omit the red pepper flakes & cayenne and then blend up 1 large carrot, 1 red pepper & some frozen chopped spinach in the food processor & add to this sauce for a veggie packed meal for them, we all love it!

Buttery Cupcakes with Coconut Topping

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
These were only ok for me. I did halve the recipe as it was just for my husband & I and we don't need to have 12 cupcakes around :) but I did it exactly in half (the site calculates it for you) and they turned out rather dry. I felt more like I was eating a muffin than a cupcake. The topping was interesting but again seemed like a muffin topping instead of a frosting. You do have to be careful with the broiling- I did not spread to the edges as directed, thinking it would spread itself under the heat, but it did not, and a few did turn dark in that area, so I would advice spreading it out to cover the whole thing.

Bavarian Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
Really enjoyed this! I have been on a mission to replicate a creamy strawberry pie that I grew up eating at a local restaurant & while this is not exactly it, it is closer than I've come yet. I love coconut so the super easy crust was right up my alley & it was all very easy to make. My only issue was that the strawberries released a lot of water when they sat with the sugar and then when I added the water/gelatin mix there just seemed to be SO much liquid that I poured about half off before folding in the cream. I'm not really sure how differently it would've turned out if I kept all the liquid but it was great regardless, my guests all really liked it. I do wish the strawberry measurement was in weight instead of volume though I ended up just using about 1 lb of strawberries.

Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
I halved this recipe & not sure if that was where the problem was, but many things did not work out for me... I added the sugar gradually, thank goodness b/c halfway through the sugar, the mixture turned very crumbly & when I tasted it, it was good but almost too sweet &I knew I couldn't add any more. It was still sticky enough to roll into eggs but just barely. I used semisweet chips & they did not melt well- unfortunately I did not have shortening & subbed butter b/c I thought that would smooth it out but I added nearly 3 tbsp (to only 4 oz choc) and it still was not smooth or 'dippable', so I ended up having to smear it onto my eggs w/ a mini spatula & my hands. They were not pretty at all, good thing it was just for me & my husband. But, they did taste good when all was said & done. Next time, I'd cut down on sugar and use the chocolate that is made for candy making.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
Very good & super easy. Used a cheddar/jack mix just b/c I had a bag of the pre-shredded, so I think that it was less than 3 cups also. I will definitely make again & am freezing half of it so I'm interested to see how it does with freezing!

Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
Really good! I agree with others that the streusel might not be needed since they're pretty sweet to begin with. I would sub applesauce for the oil next time, possibly cut back on the sugar in the muffin mix & maybe even add some chopped nuts. I misread the directions & used the whole can of pumpkin instead of just one cup & thought they turned out great- maybe more pumpkiny than they were supposed to be, I don't know!

Zippy Chicken Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
We really enjoyed this & will make it again but I can't say it blew me away. I stuck to recipe but did add more broth, somewhere between 5 & 6 cups total. Served with a side salad & some crusty bread, great on a cold fall/winter day!

Blueberries n' Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
This was yummy & a hit with our friends! I used frozen bluberries that I simmered w/ some sugar & corn starch instead of pie filling, so probably it was not as blueberry-y as the original recipe. I took the advice of others & did a 1 1/2 batch of the cream cheese, which was definitely a good idea. Future ideas might be to spray the pan before putting down the crust (or add more butter to crumbs as others mentioned), as I had a little trouble getting it out & it fell apart, also could use cool whip instead of whipping the cream yourself to save time & also possibly hold the shape better. I will definitely make again!

Spicy Garlic and Pepper Shrimp

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
We really enjoyed this, but like others, made some changes from the original recipe, which is why I only gave it 4 stars. It seemed like it would need some additional flavor (and sauce), so at the end, I added a couple tsp of sesame oil and fish sauce & a little powdered ginger (didn't have fresh on hand) to add some additional flavor to pour over top of the whole thing. I also used green beans instead of cabbage only because I had them. Loved the spiciness from the red pepper!!!

Chili-Lime Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
This is a great, super easy marinade. I marinated chicken cubes & served w/ grilled green peppers & yellow squash (just in olive oil & s/p) with a side of coconut lime rice from trader joe's. My husband said- " I don't know what you marinated this chicken in, but it is outstanding" - with no prompting! Definitely a keeper.

Grilled Broccoli

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2008
Wow! This was great! I am not a broccoli person (unless it is doused in cheese or some other sauce), but my husband likes it, so I bought some with the intention of making some stirfry Chinese style dish...but dinners got mixed up, as always & I needed an easy side tonight. This was perfect! The flavor was great, we both gobbled it up, I will definitely be making this again & passing on the recipe- I did not think it was that lemony at all (I used about 1/2 a lemon, didn't measure the juice) and I used a grill basket on a grill heated to about 400 degrees, tossing regularly. Thanks!

Fired Up Southwest Fajitas

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2008
Super easy & tasty recipe for fajitas! I made exactly accdg to recipe & didn't give 5 stars only b/c I thought the marinade mix kind of overpowered everything...next time, I'll either add more veggies/meat to this recipe or only use 1/2 the packet. Yum, thank you!

Black Bean and Rice Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 24, 2008
These were great- after my husband had eaten 4 of them over the course of a couple days, I mentioned that there was no meat in them and he said, "wait, there was no meat in those??". LOL! I did sub enchilada sauce for the picante & for the salsa over top b/c I couldn't find the picante in the store and also added a little bit of cheese to the filling, but other than that, kept it the same. It wasn't all that spicy b/c I didn't use picante though, so in the future I think I'd saute some jalapeno in w/ the onions/peppers. Yum, thanks!
