Autumn Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2009
To prepare squash, peel and cube and boil for 15-20 min., then mash. 1 large squash will have at least a 2-3 cup yield. You can also cut the squash in half (remove seeds but don't peel) and bake it at 350 for 45 min. I think peeling and cubing is easier though. I like the Butternut Squash Supreme which I found on this site too. It's essentially the same but this one uses brown sugar and cinnamon and the other doesn't.

Anna's Amazing Easy Pleasy Meatballs over Buttered Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
Didn't have cream of celery so i used Cream of Mushroom with Garlic instead. I would imagine regular cream of mushroom would work too. I added probably 1/2 cup milk to thin it out. Would defintely make again.

Candy Corn Bark

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
The great thing about this recipe is it can be adapted for any holiday or any celebration that calls for some sweets. I will try it again and use nuts and chocolate wafers. Will definitely use again. Makes a lot too. I used a very shallow baking tray and put in the fridge to harden before breaking up. After spraying the tray, wipe with a paper towel to distribute and not have a buildup.

Cheesy Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
Delicious! My advice: use quality bacon. Use only the 2 strips called for because using more creates too much grease. If you want more bacon, drain off some of the grease before adding the potatoes or you'll have a greasy dish.

Broiled Grouper Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
I thought this was WAY too salty with all the parmesan cheese. I was nauseous after I ate it and won't make it again.

Baked Sweet Potato Sticks

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Like others I cooked for only 20 min. I cut them smaller than in quarters. I added less than 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder, onion powder and salt. I also ended up adding a little more olive oil since the added dry ingredients makes it pastier and you need it to be liquid. I would suggest brushing the potatoes with the oil mixture if you decide to do them lengthwise. It would also be good if they were cut in 1/2-3/4 inch rounds. Then maybe use a plastic bag. I had a very hard time trying to coat the lenthwise piece in a 10 in. round bowl. Eating at room temp or just a little warmer is ideal. Hot would be no good.

Mocha Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
I agree with some other posters who said the cake called for too much liquior. I used a dark chocolate mix and used just under one cup of liquior. Then I used my favorite chocolate frosting from Betty Crocker. Didn't add anything; just nuked it for 25 seconds to make it so I could pour it over the cake. I do think that beating the batter for the required 3-5 minutes is what ultimate made this cake rise so well. I didn't have a bundt pan but made an 11 inch round that was dense and moist. It would even be good without frosting and just dusted with some confectioners sugar.

Picante Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2009
My husband said he like this. I needed something quick and spotted a bottle of Picante in the fridge along with a leftover chicken breast I hadn't used yet. I cut up the breast into about 4 strips and boiled them in a small pot (to submerge meat in the sauce) for probably 45 min. - they were tender and tasty. I served with black beans and rice.

Chocolate Oatmeal Drop Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
I did what others did and used an entire cup of butter (2 sticks) instead of half shortening. I also cooked them at 350 instead of 325 and had to cook them for like 10 minutes to get them properly lightly browned. I did not have chocolate chips so I added a little less than 1/4 cup of chocolate hershey syrup. I think it thinned the batter a BIT too far but not sure. The cookies are very flat when they cook and are chewy. Very good. Would definitely make again.

Peach Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2009
This is one delicious recipe. I bought and peeled 2lb. of good-sized, very ripe peaches. I was careful to capture all the juice. Then I used my hands to mash and puree the peach meat and juice. It ended up using 2 1/2 cups of peaches and I think it was plenty because I had chunks and can't imagine it being any moister than it was. I also found that I had so much batter that I decided to make a loaf in addition to 12 muffins. I didn't want 2-3 dozen muffins. It's makes a lot of batter. The loaf cooked I think for 45 min. at the same temp as the muffins. There's probably enough batter to make a bundt type cake too. Will DEFINITELY make this again.

Hawaiian Chicken

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
I made this on the stovetop. Melted the butter in a pan, then mixed ALL the ingredients (less pineapple) in a bowl and poured it into the pan with the melted butter. Then I added the chicken. I used BONELESS chicken cut into large chunks. Cooked this on a VERY low flame and when it was done, I added the chunks of pineapple to heat through. DELICIOUS! Serve with plain rice.

Sour Cream Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
I think the key to this recipe is the soup used. I used one can Cream of Broccoli and the other was Creamy Herb Chicken. I also increased the sour cream by about 2 tablespoons, added onion powder, garlic powder and pepper. Also added about 1/2 cup of cheddar to the liquid mixture and added about 3/4 of a cup to the bread crumb mixture. Minor changes but I think they made it better.

Artichoke Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
Very good. I didn't use garlic salt but did use about 3 cloves of garlic and probably a good teaspoonful of salt. I think I agree that the sour cream needs to be cut in have. Lastly this does make a LOT so plan accordingly. Consider the amount of sour cream and cream cheese. If I had to guess, you end up with about 6 cups of dip at least.

Croque-Monsieur

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
Okay what I discovered was ... cut up the sandwich into quarters before dunking and cooking and make smaller portions BECAUSE otherwise it is VERY gooey in the center and I found people where pulling everything out of the sandwich once it was cut in half for eating. Other than this...it was delicious and I'll be making it again for sure.

BREAKSTONE'S Triple Chocolate Bliss Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
Amazingly delicious cake whose crowning glory is the FROSTING you make with the chocolate and Cool Whip (and it makes a LOT of it). I plan to use just that portion as a separate recipe for frosting. I would say just make sure you follow exactly. Make sure the frosting is warm enough to be drippy while applying (it hardens a bit when it cools). The rasberries are a nice touch but not necessary for those who want to skip it. I used FROZEN thawed rasberries.

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
I thought this was very good. You MUST do a couple of things...in browning the rice, keep the burner low or the rice WILL burn. And stir it now and then to prevent burning. Add the cayenne pepper and cumin BEFORE adding in the beans. It's just easier in terms of adding the beans and then mixing them with the rice. I used 3 cans of Progresso black beans. I think they were 14 or 15 oz. each. I, like others, cut the cayenne pepper and cumin in half or more just because the spiciness would do me in so adjust accordingly.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
Good recipe but the key to it is know how many bananas to use. It calls for 2+ cups of MASHED bananas. That is at LEAST 4 medium sized bananas. I used 2 and didn't mash them (just made chunks and some got mashed in the process-others were chunked into the bread which was good). Two is NOT enough. Not only is it for flavor but for moisture.
