Cake Mix Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2006
These were awesome. I halved the recipe and it made a whole 13x9 pan of rolls. More than enough for our family of 4. They were light, fluffy, perfect bready texture and not too dry. I used my kitchen aid to do all of the mixing and kneading. I used a Jiffy white cake mix since it is just slightly less than half of a large cake mix.

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2006
I suppose the recipe by itself isn't 4 stars, but its a good base to customize to your families taste. I added a lot of different seasonings. I precooked the rice in chicken broth in my rice cooker. If you keep the rice slightly on the dry side, it will still absorb more moisture when baking w/o getting soggy. I sauteed the meat by itself. While it was draining I sauteed the onion (used double what was called for) with some minced garlic and then added the meat back in. I used a whole can of diced tomotoes(and juice) and half a 15 oz can tomato sauce. The rest of the seasonings I added a little at a time until it tasted right: garlic seasoned salt, garlic, white pepper, black pepper, 1 cube beef bullion, cumin, oregano, thyme, worchestshire sauce, louisiana hot sauce, lots of mild cheddar, I think that's all. I just kept adding until I like it. I washed and salted the peppers, but did not par boil them. I prefer them to be less done and have more structure. They were topped with sliced mild cheddar. I used half the meat mixture and froze the rest. I will update when I use the next half, but I expect it will be just fine, not much different than freezing meatloaf mix which I do all the time.

Banana Pudding I

Reviewed: May 21, 2006
This came out great. I agree with what someone else said about using only the yolks. I never use the whites in puddings or custards so I left them out with this one too. One other note is to make sure to cool the pudding some before adding or layering with the bananas. If you don't the outside of the banana pieces gets cooked and tough. I also put it in a large bowl instead of in a 9x13 pan.

Cheese Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
Decent cheese sauce. It thickens fine. Just don't let it sit or it will get grainy, just like any homemade cheese sauce recipe I've tried. Good flavor. We used it on broccoli.

Shepherd's Pie IV

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2005
This recipe worked well. However, I did make some changes. I used the serving converter and made enough for 5 people. I substituted frozen corn for the cauliflower and I omitted the cream cheese from the mashed potatoes. Someone else complained about the milk not being enough for the mashed potatoes. Honestly I didn't even look at those measurements. I just made real mashed potatoes the way I always do (and I never measure there either) and it worked just fine, so probably "mashed potatoes to taste" would be a good addition to the recipe. I also forgot to add salt. Even without salt, this dish came out well and it was a hit with the kids (1 and 3). It worked great for finger food for my 1 yr old, and even my husband enjoyed it. It is super easy and a great quick fix meal. I would definitely recommend it, and it will be on our repeat menu as well. I give it four stars, for being a good, balanced, tasty meal. The only reason I wouldn't give it five is because five seems like it ought to be reserved for something really fabulous, ingenious, or out of the ordinary.
