Cindy's Jambalaya

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2014
I made this pretty much according to the recipe and we really enjoyed the outcome. I tripled the recipe and plan to freeze some of it. It didn't turn out red at all like most of the jambalayas I've seen...maybe because of the sausage (kielbasa) I used? I used Old Bay as the Cajun seasoning.

Easy Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2014
I used a single layer of corn tortillas as the base as others suggested but I think I still might play around with the base (maybe cutting the corn tortillas into small pieces?) as I'd like this to be (plastic) fork tender, especially as this is the perfect football party potluck dish. I doubled the hamburger and made two layers of everything. As others suggested, I added various spices to the meat mixture, and only 1 c salsa. Others commented that there's a lot of grease in the bottom but I didn't have the experience. That is probably due to a lot of factors, such as using corn tortillas, how long I cooked the meat, the leanness of the meat, etc.

Creamy Potato Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2014
As an alternative, I used a can of clam chowder instead of alfredo sauce. It turned out great and we couldn't really even taste the clam chowder. We also added cooked polish sausage instead of ham, as well as crumbled bacon, and used cheddar/monterey jack shredded cheese instead of swiss, then covered the top with sliced american cheese. As is typical of potato casserole dishes, the potatoes weren't cooked through (despite slicing the potatoes very thin using a mandolin) and we ended up microwaving the servings to fully soften the potatoes.

Pumpkin Ice Cream

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2014
I made multiple substitutions but appreciated the concept and enjoyed the final result. Instead of all of the spices, I followed someone else's suggestion and used 1 T. pumpkin pie spice. That might have been a little too much so next time I might try instead 2 t. Also, some of the spices rose to the top and made the first serving far too spicy. I used 15 oz. of fresh cooked and frozen pumpkin, frozen yogurt instead of ice cream, candied the pecans, and didn't use vanilla wafers.

Microwave Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2014
I am keeping this because it's so darn simple, quick and easy! I only had two Fuji apples but used the same measurements for the filling, except I used 1/2 cup of brown sugar rather than 3/4 cup as I was using up what I had left. I substituted nutmeg for allspice. Also I used gluten-free granola instead of oats and skipped the flour. I cooked the dish for five minutes, checking at four. The apples were soft but not mushy (also I forgot to peel them, which was fine). Without the flour and at the shorter cook time, the filling was more of a thick syrup. I'll try adding flour next time to check out the recipe as intended but we didn't mind the dish the way it came out without flour. Made a great quick snack.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2014
Made this for a boy's birthday party and all kids raved about it. I followed the recipe as written, excluding the "extras," i.e., coconut, walnuts, pineapple and raisins.

Chocolate Frosting I

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2014
I followed others' suggestions and used 2/3 c. cocoa and 3 c. powdered sugar. I tripled the recipe for a layer cake. Great rich, dark, color and creamy consistency, even hours afterward.

Quick Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2014
I went overboard on the filling (1 bag broccoli, 1/2 c. ham, 4 oz sliced mushrooms and 4-5 chopped artichoke hearts) so to make it fit in the pie pan, I cut back the milk to 1/2 c. and the flour (gluten free) to 1/8 c. I also was unfamiliar with the oven and ended up having to finish cooking the quiche in the microwave after discovering the casserole wasn't set. Nonetheless, it turned out and tasted great!

Giovanna's Yummy Cheese Onions

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2013
Turned out great for a TG gathering! I made this gluten free by using GF flour and crunching up some Nut Thins to use as bread crumbs.

Pecan Nut Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2013
I followed the recipe exactly but something was off. I had way too much for one pie pan and there was way, way too much butter. I love the concept of this as a gluten-free crust so I'll keep playing with the recipe.

Brown Family's Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2013
This filled two pies for me. Since I had two pies, I doubled the topping and it ended up more as an additional layer than a sprinkling. I'd like to try this without the topping next time.

Bread Pudding I

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
I used hot dog buns. I might try doubling the bread amount next time as the end product was only about 1/2" thick. The bread did rise quite a bit in the oven, however, so I might also have a big mess on my hands! I didn't try the lemon sauce -- well, actually, I tried to make it using the microwave and it never thickened up so I dumped it.

Tater-Dipped Eggplant

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
This would have gotten five stars, but I did have to cook it a lot longer than 20 minutes and I had to use an extra egg. Otherwise: fantastic!!! I sliced the eggplant more like 1/2" thick, so I had about five slices leftover that I couldn't fit on the pan (saving those for later!). I used the cheap instant mashed potatoes that are flavored, in buttery homestyle flavor, and added 1/4 t. garlic. The eggplant was cooked until the slices were brown and the potato flakes were crispy. Not the least bit soggy and, actually, only a hint of the eggplant flavor given the thinness of the slices. Next time I might try slicing the eggplant a little thicker but the thinness is great for people who don't necessarily love eggplant as much as others.

Sweet Potato and Apple Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
I used three sweet potatoes and excluded the lemon as suggested by others. I almost wish I'd included the lemon just to know whether that might add a little extra to the soup as otherwise the soup tends to be a little on the bland side. However ours could have been bland from the extra sweet potato, and salt and pepper helped bring out the flavors a lot. I used feta as the garnish and would have preferred something different, such as perhaps grated parmesan or a dollop of sour cream.

Homemade Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
I quadrupled the recipe, using four eggs and a little over three cups of flour, added gradually. I overworked my dough (they were a little chewy, and it wasn't because they were al dente or overcooked) but otherwise the noodles turned out great.

Sausage Crescent Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
I found these to be a little "one note." I did not add poppy seeds, however. Not sure if that would make a difference.
