D's Famous Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
I made this earlier tonight because my daughter's father had a few friends coming over and I wanted to whip up a quick snack for them to munch on while he grilled. I followed the recipe loosely, just getting the base down. I chopped half a large onion in big chunks, threw it in the food processor and diced them further, and added two cans of Rotel, mostly drained, and garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder and salt to taste. I had a taste and it was delicious. I will try using fresh tomatoes and garlic and play around with it a bit more next time, when I'm not in a big rush. Thanks for the recipe!

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
Made this tonight. I sauteed some diced onion and minced garlic in a tablespoon of butter and then added 5 diced vine tomatoes, which I didn't bother peeling. I subbed 2 cups tomato sauce and two cups chicken broth for the tomato juice since I never buy it. Pureed/whipped half the soup with the basil in my Magic Bullet, Pretty good soup, but definitely way too much cream. I added half the amount called for, and it still took away from the tomato taste. I'd also definitely at least double the basil in the future. Will make again, with a few changes.

Italian Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
I've made these a few times now and they're great. I do make a few changes, though. I use wheat bread, and I layer the sandwiches like this: Garlic butter (on this site) on the outside of the bread, bread, vodka sauce on the inside of the bread, shredded mozzarella cheese, vodka sauce on the inside of the other piece of bread, bread, garlic butter on the outside of the bread. I also cook them in a skillet like a regular grilled cheese. Try them this way and I guarantee you'll love it. Will make these again and again. Thanks!

Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
I used this to make garlic bread, and thankfully I realized that a tablespoon of garlic salt would be way too much, so I substituted garlic POWDER and used a dash or two of the garlic salt. It was delicious that way!

Mom's Applesauce Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
These were great. I make a pancake like this, but I never thought to add lemon juice. I think that was the missing ingredient I needed to make them so yummy. Mmmmmm!

Apple Loaf

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2007
This was amazing! I've never had apple bread before, but this was great. Since my fiance is allergic to banana bread (my OLD favorite), this will be made for Sunday breakfasts from now on. Even my 16 month old toddler loved it! (that's a HUGE compliment) I did add 1/2 tsp cloves, 3/4 tsp cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg, and used two cups of apples. The cooking time was perfect, even with the extra apples. Thanks a bunch for this delicious recipe!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2007
Delicious. Even my 16 month old son who usually refuses anything other than a hot dog gobbled it up. I did make a few changes though, I shredded leftover roasted chicken I made the night before, added an extra can of cram of chicken, used chicken broth instead of water, used only one can of biscuits that I flattened and cut into 5-6 strips, and seasoned the mix with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and just a pinch of celery seed. I cooked everything (except the biscuits) on low for 6 hours to blend the flavors (since my chicken was already cooked), and cooked on high for an hour or so when I added the biscuits. Mmmmmmmmm!! I'm happy to gloat that it's better than my grandma's. This will become a household necessity. Thanks!

To Die For Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2007
If I could eat this every day without gaining any weight, I would. It's delicious. I only use a pound of pasta, though, but make the original amount of sauce, since we like our fettuccine creamy. This is my permanent fettuccine Alfredo recipe.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2007
This was amazing! I made it for my cousin's bridal shower and everyone loved it. The only thing that I did differently was to use whole wheat tortillas. Mmmmmmm. I'll definitely continue making this!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2007
I made this last Friday for my family dinner and it was gobbled up quickly. I don't care for cheesecake myself, but I had to try it. It was quite tasty. I used an Oreo cookie crust and added miniature chocolate chips to the cheesecake batter. I also drizzled hot fudge and caramel over the topping and scattered more miniature chocolate chips across. It looked amazing.

Aunt Millie's Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2007
I have been making this for quite awhile, and I love it. My whole family enjoys it. I have made it with a bit of cream to make it creamier and without. Either way, it's excellent. I have made it with the crouton topping and with a whole wheat Ritz cracker topping and again, either way it was amazing. You've got to try this!

Fudge

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2007
This was very good. Very rich, like a truffle. I can't help thinking that I did something wrong, though, because my fudge never 'set.' The consistency is just like THICK frosting. Anyone know what went wrong? Maybe because I cooked it on the stove instead of the microwave since I didn't have a microwaveable bowl large enough, or that I used a metal baking dish to refrigerate it in and not a glass one?
