French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: May 9, 2010
It cooked just fine, but it was really lacking in any flavor or richness. For a small family, I can see where this would be a convenient option over standing over the stove, so I'm giving it two stars for convenience. However, for brunches or pot luck breakfasts, I wouldn't recommend it - the syrup is added at the time of serving as opposed to being baked in like many other recipes out there. Wish I could have rated higher, but, out of everything we had at our Mother's Day Brunch this morning, this was the dish that was left sitting there while everyone went back for seconds of everything else.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
Perfect texture (the most important part of a good snickerdoodle). The flavor is delicious - we LOVE these! Thanks for the recipe!

Bacon Cheese Treats

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
They were pretty tasty, but they weren't exceptional. If you're looking for quick, easy and very good, these fit the bill. If you love to wow your guests (my goal is to blow the socks off of my guests), you might want to keep looking.

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
Make sure you leave plenty of time to add all of the layers! Its jello - it's refreshing, and it made a really lovely presentation.

Quick Zesty Green Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
I'm not a huge green bean lover, so I left it up to the rest of the family to rate it, and they gave it an emphatic 5 stars! Super easy, but the Blackened Old Bay is hard to find, even here in Maryland! I used the same Old Bay that we always use on our crabs, and it was great...

Pearl Baked Cream Onions

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
I began making these for Thanksgiving 2007. My husband and brother-in-laws' families have always had onions at holiday dinners, and mine did not. They asked for some on the table, and I had no idea what to look for in a recipe. I was so fortunate to find this one! This recipe hit it out of the park! The first time I made them I par-boiled a TON of pearl onions and popped them out of the skins. I have come to find that the men didn't even noticed when I made the switched to jarred onions. Rich & delicious...

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
This is a very good recipe, but I probably won't make it again. The sheer quantity of ingredients made me think that this was going to be the very best chili I had ever had, that it would be somehow gourmet and that one of these ingredients was one that I had been missing out on before. It was very good, but it wasn't what I had hoped it would be (that being my all-time favorite!). So, while it's tasty, I'm going to continue my hunt for the perfect chili...

Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
So delicious - I was actually thanked for bringing these to a Super Bowl party! Half were prepared as written, and I added worcestershire sauce and garlic powder (just a bit) to the cream cheese in the other half. Both were delicious, but my personal preference is on beefing up the worcestershire and garlic. Either way, these aren't your ordinary Jalapeno Poppers - the bacon adds depth and makes them addictive. Seriously, people were standing there eating one after the other - glad I quadrupled the recipe!

Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
Nothing too exciting to report on this one. I've made it on two different occasions, and each time I've made a mental note that I shouldn't make it again. The dish and its colors are pretty unappealing on the plate, and the flavors aren't bad, they just aren't really particularly good. I think if you found the right combination of ingredients to add to jazz it up, it would could definitely be improved, but I like to base my reviews on recipes as written, and this one is middle of the road.

Fragrant Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
Other reviewers have mentioned it, but this recipe feels like it's lacking something. It has a nice flavor, but it lacks any sort of depth - sort of bland. While we were eating I was surprised at how spicy it was, but even that didn't boost the flavor level. Maybe I was disappointed at how it tasted because my kitchen smelled so delicious while it was cooking. And, as with other reviewers, I found it difficult to thicken. Whether I make it again or not is debatable.

Sour Cream and Horseradish Asparagus

Chewy Noels

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
The flavor of these bars are to die for! I will say that the texture/consistency is a little off, though. I tried in the 9x11 pan, as well as the 8x8, and the 9x11 worked better. These didn't really hold together until they were put in the refrigerator overnight. They are incredibly delicious, but weren't too much to look at since they were so gooey. I'm still going to make them again.
