Coconut Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: May 14, 2010
Excellent pound cake! Moist and dense, just like it should be. I used almond extract instead of coconut simply because I didn't have any, but the almond added wonderful flavor and really complimented the coconut. I used my bundt pan, and this turned out wonderul. Be sure to cream the butter/sugar mixture very well, I let my Kitchen Aid do all the work about 7-8 minutes. I dusted this lightly with powedered sugar when cooled, that's all this cake needs. I will use this recipe again for sure, it's delicious :)

Kraft® Triple-Layer Lemon Pie

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
This pie is so easy to make yet so good! I make this quite often during the summer, I didn't even know the recipe was on here until today. If you love cool lemon desserts like me, then try this. It's very refreshing and light. You could also use a store-bought pie crust, also. Just fill after the crust is baked and cooled. :)

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
Very good , this was my first time making Mexican rice. I had to add a bit more broth than called for, but the flavor is great. I did add a pat of butter after I took it off the heat, per another reviewer, and it added some depth, delicious! It wasn't too spicy at all, and the texture is wonderful. Thanks :)

Chicken Fajita Melts

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
Excellent Melts! I followed as written BUT used Quorn brand vegetarian "chicken breast cutlets". Honestly, my boyfriend and I agreed that we prefer these instead of fajitas..LOL! I'm a bread gal, and these are more hearty, which we love! I really love the addition of the tomato juice which adds wonderful flavor. From now on when I make tacos, or anything that calls for taco seasoning, I'm using tomato juice instead of adding water, such a wonderful idea. We topped these with sour cream and I will make this again for sure, thanks lmp! :)

Mexican Veggies with Queso

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
Absolutely delicious! We loved this dish! I had to leave out the jicama only because my market was all out, and I also couldn't find the cheese, but only had a day to try and find it, so I used velveeta. The seasonings are right on in this dish, not one overpowers the other, they blend perfectly. I can't wait to make this in the summer with zucchini and tomatoes from my garden. Next time I make this (which will be soon), I'm wrapping this mix up in a big burrito sized tortilla and making a meal out of this! Thanks Linda for sharing this recipe, we really enjoyed it :)

Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
This is a delciouis ham glaze. I used this on our Easter ham, and everyone loved it! Every ingredient in this recipe compliments ham, and when combined delivers a wonder, full flavor glaze. I scaled this down a bit as our ham was less than 10 pounds. I will use this again, thanks :)

Campbell's® Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
Love this classic dish! We have this every Thanksgiving, and a couple times throughout the year. So simple and is a comforting side dish for me. I make this as written and would not change a thing. :)

Cheddar Biscuits

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
Very good biscuits, easy to make in no time! I did make one batch as written, and another using butter instead of margarine, less garlic salt, and about 1/2 c more cheddar. I preferred the second batch. Definitely add a bit more cheese, as it's not very prominent. I would make these again, thanks :)

Baked Ziti with Sausage

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
Very good baked ziti, I usually don't follow a recipe to make this dish, but decided to this time. I used an entire 32 ounce container of ricotta, because for us, the 15 ounce was just not enough. I added more sauce to the ziti mix, and also added more while layering. I felt the seasonings were fine, and the addition of the onion is really good also. Thanks for sharing :)

Stef's Super Cheesy Garlic Bread

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
Delicious, rich bread! If you're looking for a super cheesy, full of flavor garlic bread, look no further! It is heavy, but it's supposed to be and we loved this, I ate more bread than our pasta dish last night. All the flavors blended very well. I will use this again for sure, I can't wait to try it out on company :)

Insalata Tricolore

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
We LOVED this, it is super delicious! I am a big fan of Caprese salads, so I was a bit skeptical using the avocado instead of basil. This is fabulous, we had a platter of this as an appetizer yesterday and I'm making more today. I had to use small Campari tomatoes because large tomatoes around here this time of year are not very good. I recommend not adding basil to this because its going to kill the flavor of the avocado. I did see some members did this after reading reviews, I would not like this with basil added also. Be sure to use the salt and pepper too, this recipe is perfect as is! I can't wait to make this with summer tomatoes, thanks for sharing this. I will make this often :)

Creamy Vegetable Medley

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2010
This is a good, easy side dish to put together in a hurry. This is rich, so be sure to serve this along side a main entree thats not in a cream sauce, or something too heavy. Also, I recommend partially steaming the frozen veggies instead of fully cooking them because they will seem a bit mushy after baking in the casserole. I think basic frozen mixed veggies (corn, peas, carrots, green beans) would work in this as well. Thanks for sharing! :)

Simple Tuna Melt

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2010
We really enjoyed this! I love the addition of the balsamic vinegar and dijon mustard, which in my opinion is what makes this recipe stand out. Also, be sure to taste this first because you could easily add more mustard and vinegar to what you prefer. I did add a tad more mayo and a dash of freshly ground black pepper. I served these open faced, adding a few slices of tomato and topped with the cheddar. I definitely will make these again, thanks for sharing :)

Cheese Quesadillas

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2010
So very delicious and easy, I make these all the time! I do prefer to make these in a skillet though, but sometimes I do use the broiler/oven. I heat 1 teaspoon of oil in my skillet, get it nice and hot over medium high heat and place filled quesadilla and flip over once until nicely browned. I added some refried beans along with the cheese, which is fabulous. I served these with salsa, sour cream and sliced black olives. Such a nice light lunch or late night snack. These are so versatile, adding ingredients you prefer. I also sometimes use colby-jack cheese too. Thanks :)

Spaghetti a la Philly

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
This is surprisingly tasty for just a few ingredients. I did not use ground beef in this, and honestly I don't think we would like this with that addition. Very nice way to doctor up a jar of sauce for sure, but the flavor could be enhanced with the addition of fresh herbs or crushed red pepper. I enjoyed this, my boyfriend not so much but he prefers a garlic & oil pasta anyway. I added some grated parmesan & basil when served also. Not bad considering the simplicity. Very similar to a rose sauce or vodka sauce without the vodka (if that makes sense). This seems to thicken also, so it's not very loose. I would make this again and try adding some herbs. :)

Garlic Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
Delicious! I make pasta with garlic & oil all the time, and this is so very versatile. I do add some butter to the garlic and oil mixture, about 3 tablespoons. I also heat the mix over low heat for about 15 minutes, do not brown the garlic, just let it heat and steep in the oil. You could easily adjust the pepper and herbs to taste, this is such a wonderful, yet delicious dish that never seems to fail. Sometimes I like to add some steamed broccoli at the last minute, which is wonderful also. Thanks for sharing :)

Mini Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
Pretty good, simple garlic bread. I had a few hot dog rolls that were going to go stale so I decided to try this. I did add some grated parmesan to the mixture before spreading which boosted the flavor a bit. I would make this again if ever in the situation to have to use up leftover rolls. I baked these at 400 degrees for about 8 minutes then broiled for a minute. Thanks :)

Nutella,Coffee,Almond Ice Cream = YUM!

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
This is super delicious and very addicting! I doubled this and tasted, and knew I had to make more and it's only 2 of us! At that point, I "eyeballed" more vanilla bean ice cream, Nutella, and coffee and mixed it up in a container and returned it to the freezer for an hour, for when we planned to have this. I topped with plenty of chopped almonds, and we were loving this! I will definitely make this again as I always have these ingredients on hand, so dangerous but so very good! Thanks Cozycook for such a wonderful, simple dessert. :)

Frosted Banana Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
These are really good, great banana flavor. Only problem I have is these are not dense enough to be considered a "bar". I was expecting something dense, and this turned out for me like a very thin cake. I will make these again but use a 9x13 pan so it's more of a cake than a thin layer. I topped these with mini chocolate chips also. I followed the recipe as written and baked them for 22 minutes which was perfect. If you need to store these after frosting them, let them set out for awhile after frosting. They are much easier to store if layering because the the frosting will "dry" a bit and allow you to layer them. Thanks for sharing :)

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
Very tasty! I make sausage, peppers and onions quite often, but never with the addition of white wine. We loved the subtle extra flavor from that. I do add a bit of olive oil along with the butter and I didn't slice the links because we were using this for sandwiches. I served these on hoagie rolls with a little marinara sauce and grated parmesan cheese. Delicious sandwich, we each ate two! Thanks for sharing, I would definitely make this again :)
