Sue's Taco Salad

Reviewed: May 27, 2006
This salad was great! I made a few changes. I used ground turkey instead of ground beef, corn tortilla chips instead of nacho ones, and catalina dressing instead of ranch. Also served it with sour cream. Great dish for a potluck!

Broccoli Cheese Pie

Reviewed: May 26, 2006
I've made this a few times and it's a family favorite. It tastes sooo good. I modified the recipe only slightly. For the crust I used 1/4 tsp. salt instead of 1/2 tsp. I thought it was too salty. Also for the filling, I substituted light cream for the half-and-half, and added a dash of pepper.

Carla's Baked Bananas

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2007
This was very yummy! Next time I think I'll cut up the bananas so they get a bit softer. I'd also use brown sugar instead of white. My husband thinks it would taste better with a bit of rum extract. It was still very good, though.

Vegan Split Pea Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
I cut this recipe in half because I have a smaller family. I would recommend checking the soup from time to time to make sure there's enough liquid. Mine ended up getting burnt on the bottom because there wasn't enough liquid. Otherwise it was good.

Molasses Sugar Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
These are a no-fail cookie that tastes great! I cut the recipe in half just because I didn't want too many cookies. Highly recommended!

Peach Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2007
These muffins were way too greasy and we didn't like how they tasted much either. Not recommended.

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
I made this recipe for Christmas and it was a big hit. I would suggest starting to thaw the punch 30-45 minutes before you want to serve it. Very yummy!

Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2012
This was very yummy and everybody wanted seconds. I made it exactly as the recipe stated, but will change a couple of things next time. Will add more veggies, since there was a lot of meat, and will at least double the potato topping. It was a bit skimpy. We really did enjoy this meal and will be making it again!

Self-Filled Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2007
These cupcakes were delicious! They were very easy to make and everyone at my son's birthday party loved them! Will definitely make again. I just plopped the cream cheese filling on top, instead of covering it with a second layer of cake batter, and they turned out fine. I would also say that the recipe yield is 24 cupcakes instead of twelve. Great recipe!

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
These cookies tasted great! I got many compliments on them. I cut down the white sugar to 1/4 C. as suggested by someone else and substituted vanilla for the brandy. My dough turned out quite crumbly though, and I had a hard time even getting the spoonfuls to stick together. Not sure what I did wrong, but they still tasted great!

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: May 27, 2006
These scones are the best! A great recipe to experiment with adding raisins, currants, chocolate chips, whatever! So delicious with a good cup of tea! The dough is a bit crumbly, but I just smashed it together into a mound.

Maureen's Baked Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
These beans were very good! We ate them with rice as a main course. The only modification I made was to put 1/3 the amount of chili powder called for, since I don't like spicy food. It was still very tasty.

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2012
These were a nice change from our normal quesadilla recipe. I halved the amount of red pepper, since I don't like spicy food, but will add a bit more next time. Very tasty and the filling is good all by itself if you have leftovers!

Pineapple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
Not bad at all, but it could use a little tweaking to make it an awesome dish. The meat needed a little more cook time, about 15 minutes more. I was out of soy sauce and substituted worcestershire sauce, which moved it further into the realm of sweet, but it was still good. It needed something zippy, though: cayenne pepper or garlic next time.

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
This soup is superb! I'll never go back to canned minestrone again! To make it a bit simpler, I just added the cooked macaroni to the soup. I love all the vegetables in this soup.

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
This fudge was easy to make and very creamy. I followed someone else's suggestion and used 1 C. semi-sweet chips, 1 C. milk chocolate chips and 1 C. dark chocolate chips. It tasted great. Will definitely make again!

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts III

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
These were very tasty. I served them at a cookie exchange, and everyone thought they were great. I did follow some other people's suggestions and tweak the recipe. I initially baked the wraps for about 40 minutes. I also only used half the sauce that was called for. It still seemed like plenty for all the water chestnuts. I highly recommend this recipe. Very yummy!

Mexican Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2012
This is a great one-pot meal that's fairly simple to make. I changed the amount of spice in the recipe, because we don't like really spicy food. I cut the chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, and black pepper in half, and it was still a bit spicy for my young kids. So...if you don't care for spicy food, you'll definitely want to tweak the spices.

Slow Cooker Cranberry Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
This was soooo easy to make and tasted great! I've never made gravy before, but this method was super-easy. We had ours with mashed potatoes, and it was really good. Even the kids kept asking for more. Thanks!
