Broccoli Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: May 17, 2006
With modifications, this casserole does not disappoint the taste buds . I boiled the chicken with a can of chicken broth, 1/2 a can of cream of chicken soup, and a little bit of water. I also added some chopped garlic, salt, and pepper to the boiling water. Once boiled, I cut the chicken into cubes. I then combined the boiled mixture with the mayo, the cream of mushroom soup, and mixed in the cubed chicken. I also mixed in the broccoli. I followed the recipe from that point. Others have posted that the chicken was bland and dry but if done this way, you'll have great results.

Bistec Encebollao

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
This is my favorite meal that my grandmother makes. I wasn't sure if this was the same recipe she uses because she doesn't use beef stock, she uses water instead. She also uses cube steak because it "soaks" up the marinade better. Aside from that, the smell and taste was the SAME! I will be making this again and again!!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
Aside from the chocolate chips, the cookies were very bland. The centers were chewy and the edges were crisp but when there's no taste, none of that matters. I'm still looking for the "Best" chocolate chip cookie recipe since this one was far from it!

Slow Cooker Cheesy Tortellini

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
This was good. It just wasn't great. I liked the idea of letting the meat slow cook on low with the tomatoes and the pasta sauce, but by 7 hours most of the liquidy sauce had evaporated leaving me with a thick, sticky coating on the tortellini. It was still a decent meal - just didn't have the "wow" factor I was expecting.

Puerto Rican Breakfast Custard

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
Just like Abuelita used to make! The secret is to make sure you have it over the heat until it's thick, otherwise you'll have a soupy result!

Chicago Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2006
YUM! As suggested, I used only 1/2 cup of mayo and 1 1/2 cups of sour cream. I also added 1/4 tsp of garlic powder and 1/4 tsp of onion powder. I ran out of bread pieces within minutes of our BBQ so I just put out some tortilla chips. People even tore at the lining of the bread bowl to get to the rest of the dip! The dip tastes great with raw veggies too! Next time I'll have more Italian bread on hand.

Puerto Rican Steamed Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2006
Very, very good. I was a little worried about the amount of salt required but it was perfect! *Just a word of caution... When stirring/mixing during steaming or when ready to serve, don't scrape from the bottom layer of the pot or you'll mix and serve yourself hard, crispy rice. I happen to like the "crusted" bottom layer but not everyone does.*

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2005
This was very flavorful! I added more chicken broth and cream to make it extra saucy. I used a teaspoon of cornstarch to thicken up the sauce and added some fresh mushrooms and some capers for that extra zing. Bowtie pasta and buttery garlic bread went perfectly with this dish... I can't wait to taste the leftovers!

B and L's Strawberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
This is an excellent smoothie recipe as written and it's also very versatile! When I want more of a "breakfast smoothie", I add half of a banana and 1/2 cup of rolled oats for extra fiber and texture!! Put the rolled oats in first to grind them up extra fine before adding the rest of the ingredients! Yum!

Puerto Rican Tostones (Fried Plantains)

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2006
Delicious! I flattened them using the bottom of a coffee mug and refried them *without* dipping in water (too much oil splattered as a result...Ouch!). They were just as crispy as the water dipped plantains. Will make again and again!

Chicken Piccata II

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2006
This was a treat to the taste buds! I doubled the sauce and realized during cooking that it was a bit too sour. I modified it by adding more water, more chicken stock, and more butter. I also thickened the sauce by using some corn starch and added capers before serving. Yum! Served with spiral pasta and hot buttery garlic bread! Also makes a good dipping sauce for the bread!

Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: May 15, 2006
This was very good! I made this for Mother's Day brunch. I wasn't quite sure how cottage cheese would taste mixed with eggs and sausage but once served, it didn't last long. I cheated by using packaged hashbrowns ("Simply Potatoes" in the refrigerated isle). I also cooked the onion with the sausage since my family isn't really fond of raw onions. I think next time I'll use sharp chedder for extra taste. Otherwise, I wouldn't change a thing!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2012
These were very good! A little on the sweet side, so next time I'll reduce the brown sugar. Overall, the receipe was quick, easy, and much better than the canned stuff!

Ten Minute Szechuan Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
Was actually looking for a pork chop recipe when I came across this and decided to try it with boneless chops. I cut them up as directed, doubled the sauce & used rice vinegar (didn't have white wine vinegar). It was good!

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
OMG!!! Yum, yum, yum!!! So good and so rich! The only thing I did differently was sprinkle crushed nilla wafers over the top instead of spreading a layer of cool whip on top. Everyone loved this pudding!!!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2009
This was great and so versatile! I used a pork roast instead of pork ribs and I added a packet of dry onion soup mix & some garlic to the slow cooker. It was super moist and I almost didn't want to add the BBQ sauce because it was so flavorful without it! I'm glad I did though because it made for a tasty meal. Will definitely make this again!

Fabulous Wet Burritos

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2009
These were good but considering these are made with enchilada sauce and chili peppers, I was expecting a little more "kick". I also wasn't crazy about the the sauce. It was too "tomato-ey". I will, however, try making these again but maybe with some chili powder and without the tomato soup.

Italian Style Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2008
Not sure what the secret is but all I was left with was soggy breading! The chops were still edible so it wasn't a complete flop but they weren't at all what I was hoping for. Still on the hunt for a CRUNCHY pork chop recipe...

Egg Salad Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2007
Non-Salt Lovers BEWARE!!!! I scaled this down to four servings and followed the recipe exactly. Recipe called for 1/4 tsp. of salt. I HALFED that and it was still way too salty!!! I couldn't eat it! If I ever try this recipe again, it will be without the salt!

Mother's Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
Creamy goodness! Although it took quite a bit of prep time, it was a nice change from the canned soup casseroles. I increased the servings to 6 and followed the recipe exactly, only I did add broccoli florets for extra veggies. Tasted even better the following day!
