Sue's Taco Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2011
This can be as simple as you want it to be or you can get really creative. I made a homemade ranch dressing with fresh minced cilantro in it. I chopped a large variety of ingredients and let my kids pick what they wanted. Everyone was moaning with delight at the dinner table! My 4 year old said it was the bestest dinner ever! For the "meat" I used veggie beef strips that made it instantly vegetarian. Mmmmm, we are gonna eat this all summer!

Layered Mint Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
This was pretty good tasting and the texture was nice. It was not very easy to work with though. I had to pat down each of the chocolate layers with my hands. i would have never gotten it to smooth out otherwise. Everyone who had some loved it though! UPDATE: The second batch was perfect to work with. I did the melting in the microwave, slowly. I think the first batch got too hot on the stove!

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
perfect! the best oatmeal cookie i have ever made. i made my cocoa tablespoons heaping and used white whole wheat instead of all purpose. i only had 6 tablespoons of butter for one batch i made. they came out great too!

Sour Cream Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
these burgers melt in your mouth! so tender and juicy. we had ours on sliced and broiled olive bread with just a touch of dijon mustard. simple and fabulous. i can imagine adding some bright flavor like diced green chiles. really whatever you like. however, this will be my base recipe from now on for sure.

No Bake Cookies V

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2009
oops! i forgot the margarine and i used rolled oats instead of quick cooking. no one in my house seemed to care. both kids and adults scarfed them up. great treat for a 'hot' bay area day (98 degrees).

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
whoa, be careful! this stuff rocks. there is a seriously high sauce to pasta ratio. i don't think i have ever put that much cheese in any one dish. i think next time i will use regular cheddar instead of sharp. i think that would make it more kid friendly. however, i must say that this was the first homemade mac and cheese that my son actually liked. he usually prefers the boxed stuff! i had to quickly put the leftovers away after dinner. i could not stop picking at it and i was going to make my self ill. this will rock the house at the next potluck i go to.

Oatmeal Whole Wheat Quick Bread

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
very good. i had to add an additional 1/2 cup of flour. it was way too soupy. i also baked it in a loaf pan. "mo mo, peez" was what my two year old had to say about it (more please). awesome with butter and honey the next morning! i can see why some people might think it's too plain. you have to appreciate the flavor of the oat and wheat, as that is what shines through. perfect for me and my family. oh, it is crumbly to slice right after baking. however, the next day it slices much better.

Graham Cracker Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
Whoa, these rock! I used a mix of regular and chocolate graham crackers. I also sprinkled semi sweet chocolate chips on top after baking. I put it back in the oven for just a few minutes and used an offset spatula to spread the melted chocolate. It looked great and tasted better. I made them for a staff appreciation lunch at my son's school. Everyone loved them. It's a great recipe to make with the kids too. Yummy!

Sweet-Potato Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
These were good. I replaced the oil with applesauce and the raisins with dried apple. I could see the swirls from the sweet potato, but could not detect them otherwise. These are hearty muffins, no fluff. They are healthy enough to be an on the go breakfast for me and the kids.

Pizza Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
This was good. I like how versatile it can be. If you have individual sized baking dishes, everyone can have their own favorite pizza casserole. I will be making this again with different 'toppings' for fun.

Mom's Italian Beef Barley Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
Italian? Not really. However, it made a very hardy satisfying meal. You can definitly add some more spices, get creative.

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
awesome. everyone loved them. i made the cake and frosting from scratch. i just can't stand how sweet the box mixes are. that added a bit more work to it, but it was well worth it. i made chocolate cake and cream cheese frosting. next time i want to try a strawberry cake and cream cheese frosting. i had never heard of cake balls until a few weeks ago. now i'm pretty sure they will be a part of just about any celebration from now on.

Chocolate Pudding Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
super yummy. you can make this recipe without the oil and replace the milk with water. that way it is fat free and vegan. you'd never know it. it's so rich and comforting. it's not really pretty. so, i would not serve it at a dinner party. however, it's a great family recipe. the kids feel like they are getting a real treat! and well, me too :)

Healthier Graham Cracker Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
easy to make and tasty. my only complaint is that it never gets crispy and gets kind of mushy the next day. i'm guessing that is due to the lack of butter. oh well. you can't have it all :)

Lemon Dreams

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009

Artichoke and Spinach Swirls

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
These came out so pretty. I made them for a holiday party and was so proud to show up with them. They were very tasty too. I got 30 out of the recipe, but only 28 made it to the party :) I had to use my sharpest knife and be careful to cut them 1/2 inch. I did pinch the seam together well before slicing and they stayed together just fine. Next week I am going to another gathering and I will bring these too. I am going to do a mushroom artichoke goat cheese filling. I think you can get as creative as you want with these. What fun!

Seafood Lasagna II

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
Very, very rich. This was the cheesiest lasagna I've ever eaten. Prep time was not too bad. I went with bay scallops and baby langustino tails. Yummy. I made mine the night before. It came out great. The only thing I was confused about was how on earth all those ingredients would fit into one 9x13 dish. I used only two pounds of seafood, 2/3 a package of noodles and one jar of sauce and it fit just fine. At any rate my husband loved it for his b-day dinner and so did our seafood lovin' 5 year old.

Shortbread Supreme

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
You can't ask for a dough to come together any faster. However, I tried using cold butter like another reviewer suggested. I'm not sure how that would ever work. I just ended up flinging tiny cubes of butter all over my counter. No problem, I just put the whole bowl in the microwave for 20 seconds. Then it fluffed up just fine. I added the zest of two lemons and 1 teaspoon of lemon extract. After baking just until they barely started to brown on the bottom, I put them face down in powered sugar while still hot. That melts on a thin layer of the sugar. I think they look nice that way, taste fantastic and I think it helps keep them soft. Who doesn't love a tastey recipe with only 3 ingredients! For those who think they come out plain, think of them as a blank canvas. Add what sounds good to you. Next time I think I'll do a cinnamon pecan shortbread. Yum.

Pizza Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
Delicious! All my boys munched these down, 17 months, 5 years and 40 years (husband). It may have just been 4 stars, but I gave it 5 because of the versatility. You can vary the 'pizza topping' ingredients all you want. I did replace some of the white flour with white whole wheat and cornmeal like others suggested. The texture was great. Next time I make these I will make a kid batch and an adult batch. Then I can add garlic and onions and pepper flakes! Oh my.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2008
Wow! These absolutely rocked! I made them for my son's Kindergarten class Halloween party. The kids loved them and they had no idea there was a vegetable lurking in them. All the parents were whispering about how good 'zucchini brownies' could be and all wanted the recipe. The batter does look a bit crazy, but the end result is awesome. Mine were super moist and fudgy, not cake like at all. Oh, and I ended up using white whole wheat flour because it was all I had. That was the only modification I made. Just as a side note in case anyone cares, these can totally be parve! Just sub soy milk in the frosting and use non dairy margarine, yeah!
