Zesty Taco Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2005
This was great! I made it almost exactly as the recipe indicated-I am not a huge cottage cheese fan so used 1/2 cottage cheese and 1/2 cheddar cheese instead. I made this about a month ago and it made a HUGE amount of food so I froze half of it before topping with the cheese and chips. We just ate it last night and it freezes really well! I served it with with tortillas, sliced avocados, and sour cream and it was fantastic!

Country Style Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
Awesome method for cooking breakfast potatoes! It's New Year's Day and we felt like a heavy greasy yummy breakfast to soak up the party from last night! I made these eggs and they were SO GOOD! I added an onion & red bell pepper and microwaved the potatoes for a few minutes before cooking to speed up the process. Used butter and oil to fry it (started with pepper and onions till soft then added potatoes and seasonings). They were so good, my husband pronounced them better than a restaurant. I will make these often!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: May 2, 2009
Excellent muffins! Great crumb topping. I added vanilla to the batter as others mentioned. I also used oil and applesauce for the butter (was short of butter) and also replaced some of the flour with whole wheat flour. They were perfect!!

Cream Filled Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
These were great! The filling is delicious!! I used a cake mix for the cake and piped the filling in from the top. I do need to work on my filling technique a bit . . . think I used too small of a tip. I didn't remove any cake to fill them, just stuck the tip in and squeezed the filling in. Worked great, will work even better with a larger tip next time (this time I used a 10-worked pretty good but I like the filling so much that I wanted more in each cake). Used chocolate frosting and decorated the tops with leftover filling. Thanks!!

Onion Brie Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2008
Fantastic! Though I supposed I'm rating the idea more than this recipe specifically because I made quite a few changes. I used a pizza crust-homemade italian herb. I only used 2 large onions. I added a tiny pinch of cayenne to the onion while they were sauteeing. Not enough to make it spicy, just enough to give it a little extra background flavor. When the onions were done, I gave them a quick splash of balsamic vinegar and sauteed them a couple minutes more. Spread them on the pizza, topped with the brie, sprinkled on pine nuts and baked. When the pizza was done, I sprinkled a generous handful of italian parsley over the top. Served with roasted asparagus and we were in HEAVEN! YUM!

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
These were great and pretty easy-especially as it was my first time making crepes. We made them for "Pancake Day" (DH is from the UK). Served some of them with sugar and lemon juice (YUM!) and the others filled with sauteed spinach and swiss cheese. They were great!

Chicken and Sun-Dried Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
5+++ My guests LOVED this!! I shredded a roasted chicken from the grocery store and mixed it with Balsamic & Basil salad dressing, some baby spinach leaves and sun dried tomatoes. Spooned it on top of toasted baguette slices and sprinkled it generously with feta cheese. I am vegetarian and didn't eat it but everyone else gobbled it up, including my hubby who tried to sneak as many as possible before my girlfriends came over! I will keep this one for sure-almost everyone asked for the recipe!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2007
Perfect, very cakey and great texture (I don't like my cornbread too gritty)! Didn't change a thing and we loved it!

Suki's Spinach and Feta Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2007
I was not expecting to like this as much as I did. I chose it because it seems so healthy with all the veggies but the flavor is outstanding. I think it is the feta-it can be so strong but it adds such great tang to this pasta! I used a can of diced tomatoes and 1/2 package of frozen spinach in place of the fresh stuff. My husband raved! This is a definite keeper!!

Blueberry Muffins II

Reviewed: May 6, 2007
If you are looking for a healthy wholesome muffin, this is not it! But if you are looking for a treat-this is the one! Very sweet and cakelike! Between 2 adults and 1 3 yr old, we actually ate a dozen in one sitting. YUM! Didn't change anything!

Baked Ziti IV

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2007
This was great! I used ground pork instead of sausage but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It got rave reviews from everyone! Thanks for the great recipe and a slightly different baked ziti-I'll definitely make it again.

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
Great rice, perfect side dish. I used pace for the salsa and veggie broth to keep it vegetarian. It is light in texture and flavor and really nice! Thanks, I've already made this twice!

Easy Pizza Sauce III

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
Wow! This was so great and so easy! I used a blender and added some extra spices and sugar (1/2 T basil, 1/2 t sugar, some italian seasoning) as some other reviewers recommended. Because of this sauce, I made the best pizza ever!! Makes a good amount-froze 1/2 for the next pizza I make! Thanks!!

Lemon Square Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2010
YUM! I have made lemon bars before and they haven't turned out very well. These were fantastic! Followed the suggestions given by the most popular reviewer at top of the list below recipe and they were indeed perfect. I can't stop eating them! I have a tree full of lemons . . . dangerous!!

Cheddar Onion Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
I loved these and i don't even like biscuits that much! They are cheesy, moist and easy. I used powdered buttermilk with success-I rarely if ever buy fresh. The onion flavor was subtle but the perfect amount. Really good-not overpowering on the baking powder side which I really appreciate. I will definitely make them again! Quick, easy, and they were perfect with our pasta! A great side to help stretch a meal. Thank you!!

Royal Icing II

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
This icing works perfect for gingerbread houses or cookies that you want to decorate and have them stay pretty as the icing firms up nicely like a candy coating and hardens well. But not so hard that you can't eat it. Flavor wise though, it's not as good as buttercream or something like that. It tastes like powdered sugar really and that's it. I was worried that they wouldn't taste very good because on its own it didn't have the best flavor when I tried it. But when I iced the cookies, they came out perfectly! Will use this again.

Cheesy Hash Brown Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
Fantastic! I have made this so many times now, I often take it to my monthly mom's group and have also made it for family brunches, even as a side dish for a potluck dinner. So quick, easy, and delicious! I like to use 1 can cream of potato and 1 can cheddar cheese soup, seems to be the perfect mix. I always forget the parmesan and never notice-just cheddar works just fine too. I do cut the sour cream a bit, just so it's a little thicker. I love this for morning meetings-you can mix it up at night without thawing the potatoes first then let it sit in the fridge overnight before baking in the morning. Great recipe-both as written and if you want to play around with it. Thanks!!

Red Bean Salad with Feta and Peppers

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
Great salad and very adaptable to what you have on hand! I didn't use cabbage as I didn't have it. Used both a red and yellow bell pepper and used a balsamic dressing instead of the lemon (just because I didn't have any lemons and had to improvise). The best part is the feta which I put on top of the salad-it's what makes the salad perfect. I served it over a bed of chopped romaine lettuce and it was fantastic-absolutely delicious; can't wait for lunch tomorrow!!

Brunch Strata

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
5++++. This was fantastic!! Made for Mother's Day brunch and everyone loved it. Most people had seconds and I was asked several times how I made it. I made it vegetarian and used tons of veggies-onion, garlic, mushrooms, red bells, yellow bells, asparagus and zucchini. I used baguette for the bread. At first when I added the eggs to the cream cheese mixture, it didn't look so good (kind of looked curdled) but I kept beating and it smoothed out. I will make this again and again-a nicer egg casserole and so adaptable as far as ingredients go. Thank you for a new favorite recipe-this is seriously one of the best things I have made in good while!
