Sassy Tailgate Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
These were very good. I used a regular swiss cheese that I already had. I also used a popular brand of hawaiian roll, and they were fairly small, so I didn't use all of the cream cheese or ham (and halved each slice of cheese), but there was still plenty on each. I recommend that you keep an eye on these, as mine were well-done at about 15 minutes. They probably would have burned had I left them in the entire 20. Husband thought they were delicious and I will make them again.

Quick Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
This was very good, and very easy. Hubby absolutely loved it. All I had was a 16oz. bag of california style mixed veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots), and it was still great. I served it over chicken flavored ricc-a-roni. I'm making it again tonight, and can't wait!

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
Holy moly, are these good! I found this recipe, and forwarded it to a friend in the office who likes to cook. I haven't made them yet, but he made them last night and brought me one today. I cannot believe how delicious these are for such a simple recipe. I can't wait to make them myself!

Fried Pork Chop

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
These were great. My husband and I loved them, and I can't wait to get home and eat what's left! I did season the chops with garlic salt and onion powder before breading. And I followed a suggestion and let them sit in the fridge with the (double) coating on. When I went to put them in the frying pan, some of the batter stuck to the plate and not to the chop. Next time, I will just put them directly into the pan and skip that suggestion. I served them with scalloped potatoes and vegetables in cheese sauce. YUM!

Tacos in Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
Hubby and I loved this. We even forgot to put sour cream on top, which we also like. But they were good without. I was liberal with the cream cheese... I'd say I used at least 4 ounces if not a little more. Will be making these again!

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2009
This frosting, to me, tasted like peanut butter fudge. I used it on a layer cake, and it was difficult to spread. Not because of stiffness, but because it didn't want to adhere to the cake. It was a little rich for me. I used it on a chocolate cake (made with chocolate pudding) and it pretty much took over the entire cake. I probably will not make this again.

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
This is fantastic vegetable soup. I was running out of room in the stock pot, so I only used about 3/4 the head of cabbage. I also used V8 instead of tomato juice; I just thought it would have better flavor. One thing that perplexed me, however, is that this calls for whole peeled tomatoes... WHY? Just seems odd to have all cut up vegetables and then whole tomatoes floating around in the soup. I will use diced next time. But still a fabulous recipe... and the freezer is stocked with it!

Grilled Sausage with Potatoes and Green Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
I opted to make this for two reasons: A) It's very similar to a dish I make on the stove that we love, and B) we were going camping and we could cook it over a fire. I did change it up a bit to be like what we make at home, so I did not use green beans. Instead, I chopped 2 onions and 1 green pepper and threw that in with turkey sausage and potatoes. Didn't have many extra spices, so we just topped it with salt, pepper, butter and a little beer and it was absolutely wonderful! This is a great recipe if you are going to be camping and want something easy and good to cook over the fire. I'm sure it's just as good with green beans! We will make this on every camping trip from here on out!

Easy Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
I think this is a good recipe. I made it because we are beginning to eat healthier and I liked the nutrition facts on this. While I agree some spices are lacking (I used 2 tsp of my Emeril's "Bayou Blast" and will add more garlic and onion powder next time), I think some people need to be reminded that this is "EASY" red beans and rice. Nowhere in the recipe title does it state "cajun" or "authentic". If you are looking for something that's quick, healthy and tasty (with a little help from some extra seasoning), then this is for you. If you are looking for something "authentic", then you may want to look elsewhere.

Chicken Noodle Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
This was great! I regretfully gave the leftovers to my fiance for lunch. I would have loved another bowl. I omitted the bean sprouts; I don't really care for them. I also used 2 of the 3 seasoning packets for the noodles. I think their spice packets are pretty salty. Also, for those out there who don't have a wok, don't be afraid to try this in a regular skillet. That is what I did and it still turned out delicious.

Broccoli and Carrot Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
This is very good! Fiance and I started a diet yesterday, so I made a healthy version using the Campbell's lowfat soups and lowfat cottage cheese. We each had seconds and I just had more for lunch today. I accidentally used one cr. of mushroom and one cr. of chicken and it was still delicious. Oh, and I added some sauteed onions and garlic at the suggestion of another user. Meant to throw in some spinach but forgot; will probably do that next time!

Cabbage on the Grill

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
I took the ingredients for this and made it at a friend's cookout this past weekend. Rave reviews! All said it was a keeper. I followed recipe exactly, and added a little onion powder. The head of cabbage I had was pretty big; if anyone else runs into this, I suggest either leaving it on the grill a little longer, or cutting each wedge into two seperate wedges and wrapping each with bacon, and then put two small wedges in each foil packet. This will ensure doneness. We will be making this again!

Coconut Cream Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
This is one of our new faves. I made as directed, only used coconut milk instead of coconut cream, but only because I couldn't find coconut "cream" at the grocery store. I'm not sure if there's a difference. When I mixed the coconut milk with the sweetened condensed milk, it appeared a bit thin, so out of concern for having a soggy cake, I only used about 2/3 of the mixture. I also used the cool whipped frosting recipe from this site. My fiance and I managed to eat the whole cake in 3 days! I'm working on the last piece right now :)

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
This is a great recipe as-is. My only change was that I used leftover fried chicken (skin removed) because that's what I had. I could taste the beer, but I thought it was good. However, I would be willing to use chicken broth if I didn't have the beer and I think it would work just as well. This was particularly good with the suggested toppings.

Creamy Potato Pork Chop Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
I have made this twice, and my fiance and I both love it. We can only find hash brown potatoes in a 30 oz bag, so I just use all of the bag, and double the soup and sour cream. I also use cream of mushroom instead of celery. I don't use oil for the chops; just season with garlic salt, pepper, and onion powder and cook them in my nonstick skillet. The nonstick and the little bit of fat from the chops have always kept them from sticking for me. I think not using the oil makes them more juicy because they don't get that crispy "fried" texture on the outside.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
I think this is more of a "creamy" mac and cheese than a "cheesy" mac and cheese. I threw in a little more sharp cheddar than the recipe called for as well as a little colby. I also added a little milk to keep it from drying. I do think that the amount of crumb topping is too much. I will cut it in half next time. It overpowered the dish a little. But overall it was good.

Kathy's Roast and Vegetables

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
My local supermarket had pork loin on sale for less than $2/lb, so I used a 3 lb. pork roast instead, and it turned out great! I seasoned with onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper and seared as directed. I did add fresh mushrooms to the pot, but other than that I followed as directed. I was nervous at first; I don't have a huge crock pot and it was filled to the top, but as it cooked, it reduced some. I was a little short on time so I cooked it for 3 hours on high and 1 hour on low, which seemed to work perfect. Freezes well, and I think the leftovers are better than the first time around! My boyfriend and I loved this one.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
I made this today and the boyfriend and I both loved it. I used the suggested changes in using 3/4 cup oil and 1/2 cup applesauce (cinnamon applesauce), and 1 cup white sugar and one cup brown. I also used 3 cups of powdered sugar instead of 4. I did extra vanilla and cinnamon. Next time, I will probably stick to just 2 teaspoons cinnamon to suit my taste. I wanted to make this a layer cake, so I used two 8" square pans. This meant I had to adjust the cooking time. I baked at 325 for 25 minutes, and thet upped it to 350 for an additional 10. This is a great cake! My boyfriend said his new favorite. Thanks for sharing! ***UPDATE*** I made this again last night for my boyfriend's birthday. Last time, I thought it was a bit sweet and spicy, so I made it exactly as the recipe stated (except the frosting). WAY BETTER. I should have just followed the original recipe the first time. I will make it this way from now on.

Chicken Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2008
This stuff was awesome. I used my favorite dinner shortcut- rotisserie chicken from the local supermarket. I cooked the noodles in plain salted water, and just shredded the chicken as I removed it from the bones. I also thought that the butter this recipe called for was way too much for the cracker amount, so I just eliminated it altogether and bought seasoned bread crumbs. They are cheaper than real butter and Ritz crackers, and it makes the dish a little healthier by eliminating the butter altogether. My boyfriend went back for thirds, and between the two of us, we finished off an entire 9x13 pan of this within 24 hours.

No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookies III

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2008
I followed this recipe exactly and it came out great. Even better, they took no time at all to make. I was in a rush, so I poured the batter into a 9x13 pan (with a little non-stick spray; didn't have wax paper) as opposed to spooning out, and just threw it in the fridge to set. I cut into bars after that. This is exactly what I was expecting... they remind me of the cookies we had at school!
