Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2015
These were quite good. Following others' reviews, I finely chopped the onion and added a little garlic. They baked nicely and were a good side to the lobster tails we had for NYE. {I see how the cheese sauce would be perfect for mac-n-cheese, I will be trying that soon!}

Day Before Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2014
These were very rich and tasty, but had some small lumps. I cooked until still slightly firm but enough to break apart easily when forked thinking they would continue to cook some the next day & didn't want mushy or gluey potatoes. I refrigerated in a glass container overnight then transferred to a non-stick sprayed crockpot to heat for about 2.5 hours on low (then put on 'warm' while serving) to save room in the oven. Worked great & had lots of compliments!

Rosemary Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2014
Used dried basil (less) instead of fresh and mixed with softened butter instead of olive oil. The flavor was fantastic and I will use this again next year - so much better than a plain old turkey! Another change was that I used cooking instructions from a different recipe, so to be fair I can't give it 5 stars. (but based on flavor I would!)

Ragu No-Frying Eggplant Parmesan

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2014
I used Italian style Panko breadcrumbs and thought the taste & texture were very good vs regular breadcrumbs. I only used one eggplant to feed two of us - therefore reduced the egg/water by half (and still had too much - I think one egg w/ water would do). I tried not to layer the slices, rather they were slightly offset on each other so a) they wouldn't get too soggy [and b) so each slice had a small amount of sauce & eventually mozzarella. Served on spinach linguine with the remaining sauce. It was a big hit!

Hanky Pankies

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2014
I used a popular brand (seasoned) pork sausage not plain ground pork. If you do that, do not use the garlic and pepper because it will be just too much. I also used the whole jar of Cheese Whiz, not just a cup. {It looks like some people have been confusing Velveeta as a cheese sauce. It isn't, you are looking for Cheese Whiz or something similar in a jar.} Next time I will try with either plain ground pork + the recipe seasonings or reuse the pork sausage w/no extra seasoning. I also used pumpernickel cocktail bread as it was all our stores had. After heating the sauce mixture, I put it on the squares and baked at 350 for about 10 minutes. They were gobbled up, but I think with the adjusted seasoning they would have been even better!

Sesame Noodles

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2013
My family has decided to eat vegetarian at least 3x week so I've been trying all sorts of new recipes, including this one. We thought it was pretty good with two very minor changes; we ate it hot for dinner and cold the next day leftover for lunch. I added steamed broccoli & cut baby corn to add texture, color and a serving of vegetables and substituted canola oil for the safflower oil because that's what I had. My husband said it was 'too slippery' however to eat with chopsticks & there was quite a bit of leftover juice in the bowl. I may cut the liquid portion next time I make it.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2013
This was ok, but I'm shocked it has received so many 'high' reviews.

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
Great texture and flavor! Just like a restaurant would serve. I used an Italian bread as it's what I had on hand. Would be even better with Texas toast or other thick sliced bread. This was much better than just an egg / vanilla / cinnamon dip.

Turkey Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2012
I was so pleasantly surprised at how fabulous this soup was! I'm not familiar with 'condensed' chicken broth so I used 3 14.5oz cans of reduced sodium chicken broth and only 1 cup of water. I added a handful of matchstick carrots & didn't measure how much turkey I added, but otherwise made as directed. It was so good I ate two bowls for dinner! Even the reheated leftovers stayed creamy and rich. This is definately a keeper for my leftover turkey.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
Made this last week and it was delicious! I used boneless loin chops and they were fork tender. Since I only had 3 chops I halved the dry ingredients & used 1 egg but there was still a lot of waste. Next time may do 6 chops, 2 eggs and still halve the dry ingredients. My husband can't stop talking about how good these were to people!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
These were outstanding (with a splash of vanilla added to the batter) and easy to make with on-hand ingredients. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
This was 'ok' but not a stellar recipe. I did cut back on the cayenne a bit, and felt it still had enough heat but lacked something in flavor. Could have to do with the brand of cajun seasoning I bought - who knows. We enjoyed it enough and will eat the leftovers but probably won't be making it again.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
A good starting recipe but I thought the cream cheese ruined it - not only does it take away from the flavor, the texture turned more pastey than anything. I served with a side if cilantro lime rice - next time, I'll put the rice in the burrito, top with the bean mixture [w/o cream cheese].

Chicken Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
This was an ok recipe to start from but not as wonderful as I had hoped. We found it to be dry and sticky rather than creamy - I think adding some milk to the soup mixture will help. I also feel you could cut back on the sour cream. I followed other reviewers' suggestions and sauted celery and onion to provide some flavor and texture. [glad I did] I cut back the butter to 1/4 cup melted with the cracker crumbs and that was plenty. Last thought - I did not add salt for seasoning (only pepper) and next time I will try low sodium soups to help keep the salt down.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
This was great and so easy to make! I cooked on low for 5 hours, shredded the chicken and then heated for about 45 minutes before serving. Perfect!

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
This was excellent - I made it in a snap and was very impressed with the flavor! It is filling, satisfying and healthy all at once. After making it and bringing to work for lunch, I shared the recipe with 3 others who have since shared it with their friends and family. Thanks for the great recipe!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
I had red pepper instead of green which it gave a nice sweet flavor. Then I salted and peppered lightly but it cut through the sweet/tangy taste. Others enjoyed it more than I did - I'd give a 3.5 if I could and if I try again I'll skip salt/pepper since there is already garlic powder [and salt in the ketchup].

Heavenly Potatoes and Ham

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
I was short on time so used another's advice and mixed a bag of frozen hashbrowns instead of pre-boiling potatoes. I felt the dish was easy to make and tasted good - but there was too much butter. It was dripping/oily. Next time I'll cut to 1/4 cup mixed in and possibly less drizzled on top. I used plain panko breadcrumbs and some shredded parmesan.

Three Cheese Manicotti II

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2010
The filling is great - and I had just enough to fill the manicotti tubes. Thought that the basil seemed like 'a ton' and only 1 egg wouldn't be enough but in the end it tasted very good! Only needed 1 26oz can of sauce - 2 would be overkill. Also, do NOT follow others' short cut to 'soak noodles for 15 minutes in hot water' because 15 min is WAY too long. Most of my noodles tore, so I had to wrap the filling like enchiladas. Still tasted great but not a nice presentation. Cut back the soak time to at least the minutes required for boiling for the brand you're using.

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
Even though I was a little concerned about baking what seemed like a small amount of dough in a 9x9 pan [felt like there were spots withouth any dough as I tried to spread to the edges] they baked beautifully and tasted wonderful! I used 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and mixed them into the batter before baking.
