One Pot Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
I really wanted to like this, because I was craving Tuna Casserole. However, our family thought this was very bland, as is, except I used less noodles. We ate it, because it was still edible, but it went down with lots of water. I give it an extra star, because it was definitely done in less than 30 minutes and very minimal clean up, so that's always a plus in my book!! Thanks, anyhow!

Scrambled Eggs Done Right

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2008
Wow, I really had my doubts about the mayo, but no, it was delicious! As I'm writing this, my oldest is saying, "Mommy, lets have more eggs, please!" My youngest relunctantly eats eggs, but is goobling this up! I can't wait for my husband to try it, as we usually only make scrambled eggs when he's here, but I'm pregnant and craving some eggs!!! :) Shh, just don't tell him mayo is in it! For those who don't like the mayo taste, I didn't notice it, so I'm wondering if you're putting too much? *Actually, I just made the second batch and doubled the mayo to see if it'd make a difference. This batch is even better! So I'm confused why others are tasting the mayo, because we still can't taste it. To each their own. :) Thanks for the great recipe!

Wheat Germ Whole-Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
We're spoiled by another whole wheat pancake recipe, but for this one not having any white flour, it was very good in that aspect. I did do a few things different. Used applesauce in place of canola oil, plus a tablespoon of melted butter. Omitted the salt. Used baking powder instead of the soda. Only had regular WWF, so didn't use the pastry WWF. Added vanilla. And after already pouring half the mix on the skillet, I decided the batter tasted bland, so I added a small spoonful of sugar over the top of the pancakes. I'm glad I did! However, I made sure I didn't do that to one pancake, so I'd know how the recipe itself really tasted without it. Of course, the sugar is better. :) For those getting flat pancakes, be sure to remember that there is a difference between pastry WWF and regular. Pastry has a lower gluten content with higher starch. This makes a difference in what kind of recipe you're cooking up and its rise. Not to mention, wheat does not rise like white flour anyways. So perhaps you're used to that. Plus, the flour itself is more soft than regular, making for a tastier pastry (pancake in this case). So keep that in mind if you end up using regular, because the pastry DOES make it taste and cook up better. :)

Baked Taco Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
Pretty good, but the chicken didn't come out moist enough to me, so I'll stick a baking dish with water in with the chicken next time to counter that. The hubby and kids loved it, though. I also did the melted butter/broil at the end, which was great! I'll definitely make this again sometime. :)

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
Pretty good! Perfect spice for my husband and I, a tad too spicy for the kids, but they still ate it with lots of water. :)

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2008
Delicious!!! The pancakes taste so good and cook up perfectly! The only thing I changed was that I used unsweetened applesauce for the oil and omitted the salt. We like the chocolate chips, but we'd rather have fruit, so I probably won't make these with chocolate chips every time, but will mix up what I put in it each time. We thought these were so good, I even took a picture, which I had never done before. Definitely a keeper! As for the syrup, I haven't tried that yet, but plan to, as it sounds delicious. :)

Whole Wheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2008
These were great!! Especially being whole wheat pancakes, these were exceptionally delicious! The only thing I changed was that I left out the salt altogether. Personally, I don't think these even needed syrup on them with all the butter in them, but are divine with sliced strawberries or any kind of pancake friendly fruit, along with a little whipped topping to top it off. Mmmm! This is definitely a keeper! Thanks so much for sharing this yummy recipe, Jen! :)

Baked Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2008
I make red potatoes just like this, except use a different herb than oregano. I'm going to stick with the red potatoes, because while this was good, it wasn't as good as it is with the red potatoes. We love sweet potatoes, but this wasn't our favorite. Thanks anyways!

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
I've been making this for a long time and don't know why I never rated it. This is by far the best pizza crust I've ever tried! The only tip I want to add is to get the perfect round pizza without tossing it. I learned this a few years ago on the Food Network. Shape your dough into a ball. With your index and middle fingers, push down in the middle of the dough. Then work your fingers in a circular rotation as the dough pushes out. Keep doing this until dough is completely laid out. If you're like me, you can't toss your crust and trying to get a nice round pizza with your hands, rolling pin, or whatever makes for an odd looking round pizza, then you will appreciate this tip. At least I did! :) Hope that helps!

Spaghetti Pie III

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
Finally, a baked spaghetti I like! Except, I LOVE this! The only changes I made were that I added more sauce and a container of cottage cheese with the cream cheese. (And I excluded the green onions, since I didn't have any.) Mmmmm, yummy! :)

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
Delicious! Need I say more? The baking soda really does make all the difference. I tried that trick in my usual sweet tea and it also made it a smooth sweet tea. Thanks, cookincode3! :)

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
Before anyone throws eggs at me for the rating, I'm rating this based on the recipe as written. My first review of this was too long, so I've "shortened" it. :) Basically, the three star rating is a between rating for the ingredients and the directions. The directions are where this recipe is lacking. You will certainly need to follow other great reviewers' suggestions for the directions on how to cook the filling and what it's consistancy should be, because the current directions are too vague for an individual to follow who are not familiar with making these kinds of pies. The directions as written would have definitely caused for some runny pies. As for the ingredients, not too bad at all, but I think the modifications others have suggested would have made it better. But I like our coconut pies to be more "coconutty". However, that would practically change the main ingredients of the pie, needing its own recipe. I made the recipe as listed, only adding a little coconut extract and not toasting the coconut in the filling. I'd give it a four star rating for the filling itself. Homemade topping would be better, of course, over store bought, but still good anyways. Worth trying, but definitely follow the directions of reviewers in regards to the filling. :) I plan to try the other suggestions, however, and I bet this would be a five star recipe!

Crunchy Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
This was pretty good! I did a few changes. I only did 1/4c. of mayo, added a 1/2c. of milk, and Mexican shredded cheese for cheddar cheese. My husband loved it, but we both agreed it could use a few extras, perhaps steamed broccoli or something. I also think next time I'll omit the mayo and just do two cans of cream of chicken. Otherwise, this is a good base recipe to tweak around with to your liking! Will make again! Thanks!

Sarah's Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
I made this a long time ago and forgot about it until I ran across it in my recipe box. I remember this was pretty good. I remember following the recipe pretty much to the "T", but instead of the processed cheese, I just used bagged shredded cheese (Kraft Mexican cheese...it's what we always have on hand). And I omitted the mushrooms. I do remember it being soupy, but the leftovers thickened up a bit and it was better the day after. My husband wasn't a big fan of this, which is why it hasn't been made since. I liked it, though! :)

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
We had unexpected guests this morning for breakfast, so I decided to make a quick breakfast. Pancakes are always quick. I had some bananas, so I decided to give this recipe a try. I did a few things different. I used fat free buttermilk in place of the milk and veggie oil. I added some vanilla and doubled the sugar. Our guests thought they were good and so did we. We didn't think they were out of this world, but I think the buttermilk, vanilla, and extra sugar made them better than they would have been. No one complained and they were all gone, so I'd say they must have been good then! :)

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
I made these tonight and they were alright. The only thing I did differently is use White Chocolate PB from "The Peanut Butter Company" and added 1/2c. of wheat germ, which I do to all my cookies and no one ever notices. With that said, I would definitely take out the oats and add more PB and chocolate chips if I ever tried these again. Or I might do as another reviewer did and grind the oats up. Just personal preference, but they are still good, just not our favorite. They'll get eaten, that's for sure. :)

Stuffed Shells IV

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
Way too much spinach! I agree with another reviewer who said to use a lot less spinich and use fresh. I love spinach, but even this was too much for me to enjoy the dish. I gave it two stars for the fact that we did eat it and the leftovers the next day tasted better. Thanks anyhow! Others obviously like it. :)

Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2008
Didn't change much (more sauce, extra cheese), but our family didn't think this was anything special from regular stovetop spaghetti. You could make this on the stovetop without drying it out in the oven heat (even though I added more sauce), which is what I think did this recipe in for us. This would be great made on the stove leaving out a few ingredients (like the eggs). The oven is not needed, in my humble opinion. So made on the stove, I would rate this a good four stars, but in the oven, I would give it two. So I give it three stars overall. Others seem to like it, so it's worth trying! :)

Truck-Stop Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
I tried these this morning. I scaled down the recipe to about five servings. Added some vanilla, fresh blueberries, and wheat germ. I also added more sugar than called for and some more flour until the right consistancy. With that said, I thought these were good, but we like our pancakes to be a little more sweet. I especially like it a bit more sweet, because I like to add less toppings and just eat the pancake itself. Without the sweetness, I put more toppings to even it out. So these tasted good, but would be even better with more sugar, in my opinion. Otherwise, these were nice and fluffy, which is what we love. I will likely make these again, just with more sugar and added additions, like blueberries. Thanks! :)
