Garlic Cheese Chicken Rollups

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
This was so easy to make, and was declared 12 out of 10 stars! I used cream cheese, mixed with fresh chopped garlic and dried chives instead of the cheese the recipe asked for. I cooked it for 50 minutes and it was done perfectly.

Chili Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
These burritos seemed dry inside and very dense and heavy. While the taste was okay, it seemed almost dry to me. If I make this again, I would rather do the potatoes differently. I think next time I would cut them into small pieces and bake them (covered) with the spices to cook them. Then I would put together the potatoes and cheese in the tortillas, but keep them on the smaller/lighter side. It also lends itself to adding other things, like beans, onions, olives, etc.

Spicy African Yam Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
I think I put too much peanut butter in, which ruined it for me. I doubled it, and wished I hadn't. If I try it again I think I'll keep PB the same, get hot salsa instead of medium or add some hot sauce to it!

Party Pinwheels

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
These are my favorite pinwheels, so addicting! Instead of using a Ranch packet, I use the same amount of seasonings used in the Ranch Dressing II from this site (just omit the mayo and sour cream).

Chocolate Surprise Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
I was surprised the batter didn't have any egg in it, I had to go through the ingredients twice because I thought I was forgetting something. This makes a lot of batter though, I had probably 30 cupcakes worth even after filling them almost full. It tasted great, just like a cupcake with cheesecake baked in it. So if you want something lighter or creamier, this recipe is not for you.

Lemon Horseradish New Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
I mixed all of the dressing in a bowl before I added the new potatoes, which I had quartered. I also added an extra tablespoon of horseradish. If I make this again, I'll decrease the amount of butter, I think it had a little too much.

Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
I too added the whole can of tomato sauce, but omitted the water. I ended up adding some more water when I reheated it the next day. Very good soup, would probably try again without the ham too!

Pollo (Chicken) Fricassee from Puerto Rico

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
I think this turned out pretty salty, and I only used half the salt. Next time if I make it again, I won't use any salt!

Korean BBQ Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
I marinated chicken drumsticks in this for 24 hours, then barbecued. I basted the chicken often with the leftover sauce which was simmering on the barbecue.

Korean Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
If I make this again, I'll use half the pepper. This wasn't very flavorful--just hot!

German Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
This sure yields a lot of pancakes--makes me wish I had used a bigger pan to go faster! These are great food a treat once in a while, otherwise they're a little to greasy for everyday dinner.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
This was a fantastic recipe! No one minded there was no meat in our meal. I substituted basil for the rosemary too. I also used more feta cheese in there too in each layer. Next time I'll add kalamata olives, I think that will make it even better! Because there's so much liquid, I didn't cook the noodles either, which makes it a one-pan meal! Update: Made this last night using hearts of palm instead of artichoke hearts, and goat cheese instead of feta. Best one I've made yet!

Garlic Bread Fantastique

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
I didn't think it was possible for four people to finish this off in one sitting, but we did! I doubled the garlic too, and I'm sorry I don't have any leftovers!

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
I liked the idea of this recipe because I could use the alfredo sauce in my pantry I was never going to eat, and because it didn't use mayonnaise! I added two extra cloves of garlic, and it was very good.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
My new favorite recipe! I made only 6 servings, and still had a lot of filling leftover. I'll use the leftover filling to make quesadillas or empanadas later this week. Next time I make this, I'll add cilantro too.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
I made this with 8 apples, and it was still way too much for my 8x12 pyrex. I ended up putting leftover apples in a smaller one and baking two pans of it. Otherwise, great taste especially with vanilla ice cream!

Grandma Ruth's Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
I've never had eggs in my stuffing before so I didn't think I would like it, but I think this was my favorite stuffing yet! Leftovers are great too!

Peanut Butter Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
When I made this, I was sure it wouldn't turn out. The peanut butter mixture looked so thick, like cookie batter, but when I put in the whipped heavy cream it really mixed in well. It was so light, and I topped it with chopped up mini peanut butter cups. It does get warm really quick though, so next time I might pop it in the freezer for an hour beforehand.

Creamy Mashed Potatoes II

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
I made these the day before Thanksgiving and baked them the day of! The ranch flavoring (I used a recipe from this site) really set it apart from other recipes I've tasted before!

Bulgur Chickpea Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
I had such high hopes for this, but it didn't quite deliver. I used the bulgur and was quite surprised when it did soak up 2 cups of water! Then I added the full amount of lemon juice and half the amount of olive oil. It was too much liquid to soak in fully, and had a funny taste. Too much lemon, and not enough flavor. If I made this again, I would do it again with some of the spices people suggested, and fresh garlic as well. Then I would mix it all, and let it sit mixed together overnight. I added sliced avocados on top, and it really was a healthy meal. This has great potential though!
