Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2007
I made this recipe while trying to find a staple side dish for BBQ's and I have to say I found it! Everyone loved it. Like others, I sauteed onions and garlic in the butter, used more noodles, used a mexican cheese mix, and half/half instead of milk. I'm not a fan of baked macaroni, but I really enjoyed this one. I will definitely make again!

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2007
Great recipe!! Super easy to make and my husband loved it. The only substitution was I used light cheddar instead of colby to help the heart. I will be making again for friends!

Pesto Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2007
This recipe was awesome!! I did a two substitutions due to resources: garlic alfredo instead of regular alfredo and half a pesto-sauce packet (similar to the alfredo). My husband isn't a big fan of pasta or chicken but he loved it. I will make it over and over again!! *****UPDATE: I've made with Alfredo in the jar and I didn't care for it half as much (although my friend raved about it). It was too thick for my taste. Just shows you that this recipe really depends on the alfredo sauce so try one that best fits you!

Fresh Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: May 28, 2007
Love it, love it, love it! Everyone at our BBQ loved it and many asked for the recipe. I mixed the mayo/vinegar/sugar with the red onions the night before and let it sit in the fridge overnight. I then added the other ingredients the morning of. This kept the broccoli fresh (not soggy) but helped the onions relax. It tasted perfect!! Just a side note - I added golden raisins and roasted sunflower seeds.

Taqueria Style Tacos - Carne Asada

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2007
I only used the marinade and then grilled the steak and it turned out great!! My husband raved about it. The only thing I will change next time is I will reduce the amount of soy sauce by about half. The soy taste was overpowering and masked the other seasoning. This will definitely be used over and over again in our house.

Grilled Lemon Herb Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2007
This recipe is awesome!! My husband is not a big pork chop or lemon fan but he LOVED these! I've been craving them ever since we made them. They would be great to make for company - they tasted amazing and presented nicely. This will definitely be a staple in our house.

Gooey Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2007
****HINT: To be easy on your mixer, let the butter and cream cheese sit out until room temperature, then you will have no problems mixing. I'm a cookie nut but these weren't the best I've had. They were good, but not great. I usually get rave reviews when I bring cookies to picnics but I didn't really get any comments on these. They are nice and moist but bland. **Update: they are awesome using chocolate cake and 1 tsp vanilla.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2007
This is a great recipe for chicken pasta. My husband isn't a big fan of pasta but he said he would definitely want me to make it again. I added a little bit of lemon juice when the chicken was half way cooked and I used half and half. I also left out the green peppers and mushrooms as we don't like either of them. It tasted so wonderful the night I made them, but not so great the next day - it was kind of bland the next day.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
I used cream of chicken instead of mushrooms (neither my husband nor I like them) and other than that I followed the recipe exactly. I thought the wine was too strong, maybe if I had used a sweeter one. I did not see a reason to double the soup, the recipe makes more than enough gravy. ***UPDATE: I made this using just a tiny bit of wine and my husband loved it! Still did not need to double gravy, and it was so much better.

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2007
I used this sauce recipe over bowties as I'm not a fan of tortellini and it was awesome!! My sauce was a little thin, but I used skim milk and light cream to help with calories/fat. Next time I would add more spinach and and a tiny bit more garlic.****update - it goes great with gnoochi!!

Rosemary Roasted Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2007
I thought this recipe was very good, but the rosemary was the only thing I tasted. My husband wasn't a big fan for that reason. I only had dried rosemary which may have been a factor. If you LOVE rosemary than this recipe is for you, if not I would keep looking.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2007
This recipe is awesome and is very easy to make. I cut the recipe in half for four people and we still had left overs. The sauce used would be great as a basic spaghetti sauce - I plan on using this recipe a lot in the future. ***Update: This has become my staple spaghetti sauce. I use one can of roasted garlic flavored tomato paste and one regular can. Also, definitely use the sliced mozz cheese, it gives a bettter texture than the shredded. Everyone I have made the lasagna for raves about the dish!!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2007
These potatoes were great but with a few modifications. I cut the recipe down to feed 5 and used fresh roasted garlic. I also added a good bit of milk as we like our potatoes creamier. They still came out VERY thick so I couldn't imagine the consistency without it. Overall we loved them and I will make them again.

Unbelievable Spinach Calzones

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2007
My husband and I LOVE these calzones!! I was nervous about making them for dinner as my husband is a meat-guy but he really enjoyed them. I added a bit of Italian seasonings and used Pilsbury pizza crust. I brushed the tops of the calzones with melted butter mixed with garlic with gave an extra touch. The recipe made four huge calzones with extra filling. I froze the leftover fillings and then used them later stuffed into pasta shells and topped with spagetti sauce (baked covered about 20 min - made enough for 3 people). This was amazing!!

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2007
This recipe is great!! I sauteed the onions/peppers after the chicken then added the other ingredients. I will definitely try it next time with the enchilada sauce recipe from this website instead of taco sauce.

Make Ahead Lunch Wraps

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2007
My husband and I LOVE these! They are perfect for when a sandwich just won't cut it. As others stated, I added 1/2 packet of taco seasoning to rice before mixing in beans. I also find they microwave better if they are defrosted first. This isn't required, but it seems to work better if you have the extra time.

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
I have made this recipe numerous times over the years and they are amazing. Everyone always raves about them and talks about them months (and even years) later. I follow the recipe exactly except I use strawberry jam due to preferrence. I also use a Pampered chef small cookie scoop to help make them perfectly round. Seriously, this is probably the most popular recipe I have ever made.

Perfect Baked Potato

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
This recipe is awesome! Much better than the normal way to cook them without oil/salt. Just one word of caution, I put alum foil on the very bottom of oven (we live in Germany with TINY ovens) and the dripping oil smoked ALOT. I was nervous, but they still turned out awesome.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2007
I'm not a big meatloaf fan but my husband is so I make it to please him every now and then. I must say, this was the best meatloaf I have ever made. I've made at least a half dozen recipes and my husband agreed that this was the best. I don't mind meatloaf so much anymore (although I will never love it) and will make it more often. Goes great with garlic mashed potatoes.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
This is the first bread that I made and it came out perfect!! I can't keep my hands off of it. It is extremely moist - I made 2/3 the recipe and baked for 70 min. I used canola oil instead of veg oil and 1/3 brown sugar (2/3 white) since I ran out of sugar. This recipe is perfect!!
