Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
These were awesome. I added a pinch of nutmeg, allspice and clove. I did not do the strusel topping. The key with these is to fill each muffin cup 2/3 of the way with the pumpkin batter than pipe the cream cheese batter into the middle. I just used a ziploc bag and cut the tip off. It worked perfect! Tasted and looked just like the ones at Starbucks! This recipe made 12 Pumpkin cream cheese muffins and 20 plain pumpkin mini muffins. Thanks. I will make these every year!

Chunky Cheesecake Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
We made these but didn't add the chocolate chips to the cheesecake batter. This was my first time making brownies from scratch and it was easier than I anticipated. Very rich and Delish!! Thanks! I will make these again for sure!

Cajun Corn and Bacon Maque Choux

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
This was really good and so easy! Fresh corn is out of season so I used canned corn(but I'm sure frozen would be good too). I chopped the bacon and cooked it in a regular saute pan. I took the bacon out and added the peppers and onions. I added the canned corn and tomatoes at the end. I forgot the milk but I used some cajun seasoning as well as the cayenne pepper. I put the bacon crumbles on top before serving so they would stay crispy. We ate this with ribs and mashed potatoes. Thanks for a good recipe - I can't wait to try it with fresh corn!

Chinese Napa Cabbage Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
This is a great recipe. I used 2 packages of ramen noodles with both seasoning packets. I only used 2 tablespoons of butter and it was plenty. I added about 1/4 cup of chopped cilantro and it was a great addition. I love the dressing. Thanks for a keeper!

Amy's Barbecue Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
I love BBQ chicken salads and this was pretty good. I used shredded romaine and iceberg lettuce instead of red and green leaf. I seasoned my chicken with EVOO and grill seasoning before grilling it. I forgot the black beans but I added jicama, green onions, and diced orange bell pepper. I skipped the french fried onions and crumbled up some tortilla chips instead. I also added some shredded pepperjack and sharp cheddar cheese. The cilantro is a must and makes a BBQ chicken salad in my opinion. I will be making this again!

Risotto with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Mozzarella

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
This was a great basic recipe that has alot of room for variation. I added 3 cloves of chopped garlic and used chicken stock instead of veggie stock. I also used about 1/4 cup white wine. I love the idea of using the oil from the sundried tomatoes to saute the onions and garlic. I reduced the cheese to 1 cup and used asiago instead of parmesan or mozzarella. I will definetly make this again maybe adding some kalamata olives or artichokes at the end. I think feta cheese would be really good too. I served it with grilled asparagus and marinated pork tenderloin.

Chile Rellenos

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2006
This was my first time making rellenos and it was easy and tasted great. This recipe is for crispy "gringo" rellenos (which my husband and I both prefer)as opposed to the authentic soft rellenos that other reviewers made and were looking for. I used mild Hatch green chiles(already roasted) and stuffed them with a strip of white mexican cheese. They came out nice and crispy and we topped them off with homemade green chile and served them with ranch style beans over rice. I also seasoned the batter up with some taco seasoning. Yum-O! THanks for the great recipe!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2006
I haven't had sloppy joes for years and this is how I remember them! Great basic recipe but with a few modifications- decrease brown sugar to 2 Tsp and ketchup to 1/3 cup, add 2-3 cloves finely chopped garlic, season to taste with chili powder, paprika, and onion powder. And for a little extra kick add 2 Tbls of BBQ Sauce. I made them extra sloppy by adding 1 cup of tomato sauce. Thanks for a great recipe!

BBQ Cola Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2006
I made these for the game and they were awesome! I used 1 lb ground pork and 1/2 lb ground beef and I added about 2 tbs grill seasoning and 1 tsp. minced garlic to the meat. The sauce was really good- but I doubled it and added about 2 tbs brown sugar and 1 tbs minced garlic. Everyone loved them and I will adding them to my favorites. Thanks!

Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2006
I made these for the second time recently and they were great! They are very time consuming and a little messy so make sure you're in the cooking mood. I highly recommend using Panko (Asian style breadcrumbs)- they stick better and are extra crispy. I also seasoned my flour and breadcrumbs with taco seasoning. Thanks! This is definitely another keeper.

Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2006
I have been using this recipe for about 6 months and it is the best enchilada sauce I've ever had. True in flavor and fairly easy to make. I normally double or triple it so I can freeze the extra for future use (even better reheated). I let it simmer for about an hour or two just to get it to a thicker consistency and let the flavors meld. I always add some crushed dried chipotle chile pepper and it adds a great smoky flavor. Also a bay leaf or two- just don't forget to take them out before serving. This is a keeper for life- Thanks!!

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2006
These cookies turned out great with a few minor changes. I substituted vanilla extract in place of the brandy and used a bar of white chocolate chopped coarsely instead of the chips. I also added about 1/2 cup coarsley chopped macadamia nuts. These are a nice change from regular chocolate chip cookies but the dough is very similar. I will make these again for sure!

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2005
This was a nice change from a regular burrito. I used taco seasoning in place of the sauce and spices. After assembling them I browned all sides of the tortilla over medium high heat on a griddle sprayed with non-stick spray. This gave them a good crispy shell. I smothered them with homemade green chile and topped with sour cream. Yum!!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Southwestern Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2005
These are great! I seasoned the chicken with chili powder before cooking and it had a blackened cajun flavor. I also used cilantro instead of parsley. I used eggroll wrappers and baked them at 425 for about 35 minutes and they turned out nice and crispy. Served with avocado ranch. I will be making these again. They reheat well after being cooked and frozen.

Kelsey's Favorite Stuffed Green Peppers

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2005
These were excellent but I did make a few changes. I didn't boil the peppers first and they were cooked perfect after 40 minutes in the oven, 25 minutes covered, 15 minutes uncovered at 400 degrees. Be sure to drizzle your baking dish with olive oil first. I also added 1 can of diced tomatoes, 2 cloves of fresh chopped garlic, chili powder, and oregano for extra flavor. My husband loves cheese so I mixed some in with the meat and sprinkled more on top at the end.

Restaurant-Quality Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2005
This was my first time making baked potato soup and it was great! It was very thick at first after adding the instant mashed potato flakes and cornstarch. I would recommend not adding the cornstarch (which should be mixed with 1/4 - 1/2 water) until later in the process (if the soup isn't thick enough)or not at all. I added about 2 extra cups of water and 1 cube of chicken boullion and it was still plenty thick. I also used 1/2 cup of milk and 1/2 cup of sour cream in place of the half and half. I added about a tablespoon of bacon drippings for flavor as well. I will be making this again but with a few minor changes.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2005
I followed others suggestions and added more broccoli(fresh)and a little cheddar cheese. I also added 2 cloves of fresh chopped garlic instead of the garlic powder and used half and half instead of milk. It was good but the processed cheese makes it very rich. I will definitely make it again but next time I will add more cheddar and less processed cheese.

Tortilla Rollups IV

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2005
I used this recipe at a Halloween party and everyone loved them! It was a last minute change to my menu so I had to use 1/2 packet of taco seasoning and a 1/2 packet of ranch dressing mix, which worked great. I also used sun-dried tomato tortillas and added one can of hot green chiles and some chopped green onions. To keep the wraps tightly rolled I wrapped them in foil while they chilled. This would be a great spread on any layered mexican dip or served as a dip itself with tortilla chips. Thanks! I will definitely use this one again!
