Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
EXCELLENT!! Beware - these are VERY filling! I accidentally used pinto beans and used cheddar jalepeno wraps. I also omitted the water per other reviews. I used fresh sweet potatoes that I peeled, cut and microwaved, then mashed. I'm not sure why so many reviewers seemed to have troubles with mashing. Thanks, Karena, for sharing this recipe! I will be making it again!

Weird combination of flavors. We ate a serving but didn't save the leftovers.

Creamed Spinach II

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
I love how easy this recipe is. If you like really creamy creamed spinach, I'd suggest adding cream cheese or something as this recipe isn't really creamy. I added a can of artichoke hearts and two cloves of garlic, cut up. This is good reheated, too.

Thanksgiving Asparagus Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
I substituted bacon bits for slivered almonds and used fresh asparagus. I cooked the dish for an extra 15 minutes, covering with foil for 12 minutes, to make sure the asparagus was cooked. Ten minutes probably would have been sufficient as the asparagus turned out a little more cooked than I like. The cheese "sauce" turned out like mashed potatoes. It was okay but I probably won't make this again due to the consistency of the cheese and the lack of "depth" in this recipe.

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
These turned out very good. They were crunchier than I was hoping. I used milled oats, which I think are also known as old-fashioned oats.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
I just wanted a peanut butter cookie recipe and these turned out good. I doubled the recipe and got 2 1/2 doz cookies, so I'm not sure why the original recipe says you'll only get 6 in a batch. Also, trust that 8 min. is enough time for the cookies. I didn't think they were done at that point and cooked them twice as long until they started to brown and firm up, but those turned out pretty crunchy. The ones that came out at 8 min. turned out much better - firm but not crunchy.

Grilled Pineapple

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
I didn't really like the taste of burnt syrup but my husband loved this.

Fluffy Whole Wheat Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
I made these with 2 c. whole wheat flour only and substituted the butter for 1/4 c. applesauce. They turned out a little dry and pretty dense. Although they didn't have too much more flavor than wheat bread, hubby and son loved them with a pad of butter in the middle. I am thrilled to be able to eat a biscuit guilt-free! I'm going to try this recipe as a bread loaf.

Summer Celery Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
Although I like bold flavors, this tasted weird to me. I did substitute oregano and Italian seasoning for the thyme and basil, but I don't think it was those spices that made it taste strange. I think its the wine. Maybe not so much? Also, I wouldn't puree the soup. It turned out brown. Maybe reduce the broth by half so it creates more of a "stew" consistency and leave the veggies as they are.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
Excellent. I gave this four stars, however, as I had to add about twice as much corn syrup as the recipe calls for. Also, it doesn't make very much at all. I had about three dozen cookies so I quadrupled the recipe and that was just right.

Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
I made these as instructed. They turned out very light and tasty even without frosting (I'm not a fan of frosting). They were okay to work with using cookie cutters, although this was my first attempt at sugar cookies so I'm not sure if other dough is easier to work with. The cookies were really crispy, though, and I think I'd prefer a softer, creamier cookie.

Eggnog Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
I added 1 t. rum extract and left out the cloves, but otherwise made this as directed. I don't know what happened, but while this tasted good when I was making it, it turned out a weird yellow/brown and had a gross curdled, jelly-like consistency after it set up overnight.

Artichoke Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
These are great! I toasted the bread before adding the topping. I also used cheddar cheese rather than romano, and used canned, unmarinated artichokes. They were a hit. Even someone who said she doesn't like artichokes said they were fabulous.

Bacon Popovers

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
I've made these several times because they're a great road-trip breakfast item -- I made a large batch and freeze the muffins for the future, then just grab a bag when we're heading out for the open road. My husband now is gluten-free, so I made these with gluten-free flour. They stuck to the pan somewhat -- greasing the pan heavily with shortening and letting the muffins cool before removing them helped a lot -- but actually I like the consistency of the gluten-free ones better than those with standard flour. And that's saying something considering gluten-free bread items typically aren't that great! They seemed more like traditional popovers than the standard flour ones.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
I've had other buffalo chicken dips and this turned out much better than them. I used three chicken tenders, which I grilled for that "char" taste. I actually served this uncooked as I forgot that step! It was still good! The next day I tried it heated up, and that was good too!

Spaghetti Pizza II

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
Hubby and son both really liked this. Eight ounces of spaghetti is way too much, though. Next time I'll use half or 3/4 as much.

Oven-Barbecued Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
This is a terrific weeknight dish because it's so easy. We made it according to the recipe, except we didn't have paprika or a cast-iron pan. We used a baking dish instead. Also, we used braised pork loins/chops. Very good. It had just the right amount of "tang" not to be too spicy or too bland.

Meatloaf Muffins

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
I have been making these for years based on a recipe I found at the grocery store. I like the idea of putting some vegetable soup in them, though! I'll have to try that. And frosting them with mashed potatoes. I typically frost them with either ketchup or bbq sauce. The absolute best part of meatloaf muffins is they freeze great. Make a big batch and toss them in the freezer. Perfect for on the go eating!!

Hawaiian Ham Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
I thought this was pretty good. It's basically a recipe for a baked Chinese sweet and sour dish, except with raisins. Next time I'm leaving out the raisins. They didn't fit in with the rest of the ingredients. Just about any meat could go in this dish. I did as others suggested and used half the brown sugar. Also, I didn't have cider vinegar so I just used regular. It still came out good. It probably could have been a smidge sweeter, but fine to me. I also used two tablespoons of soy sauce.
