Libby's® White Chip Pumpkin Spice Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2005
Great Fall Cake. I piped a homemade cream cheese frosting, spiced with cinnamon, up and down the sides. I also filled the center with miniature (candy corn-like) pumpkins. RAVE REVIEWS!

This is a great, easy to make favorite! I have tried several other fussy lasagnas and this is just simple and delicious!

Flatlander Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
Not my favorite chli recipe. I was really looking for something special which this just wasn't. Something about the big kidney beans wasn't appealing to me.

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
I always have frozen, roasted chicken my freezer.Great to defrost and toss in a salad-quesadilla, this lasagna. So mine came together quickly. Could also use a roasted chicken from the deli to save time. Excellent recipe. Agree-needs more garlic. I used three cloves. I did one cup of milk and one half cup of 1/2 and 1/2. Also, can definitely mix the washed and dried spinach with the chicken and add to the sauce. Kind of eliminates the layering which isn't noticeable and saves time, too. Great recipe, a sure keeper!

Donna's Cheesy Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2007
As others have said, a great basic quiche recipe. I have made this several times and have found that variations on the dairy are well tolerated. You can add any vegetable or meat you like and will not be disappointed. Try sun dried tomatoes & mushrooms if you like them.

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
True, there is a great variety of reviews on this recipe. I read many and made a few adjustments. I used 1/2 corn syrup and half molasses. I used 3 cups of flour and two sticks of butter. I actually added the three cups of flour by accident and so I added the second stick of butter little by little until the dough was smooth but not sticky. I cut back a bit on the cloves-not quite half a teaspoon. Other than that, all else was the same. I had snow on the deck so I rolled the dough between wax paper to the desired thickness and placed on a cookie sheet on the snow for about an hour so it didn't take up room in the fridge. I piped cream cheese frosting on mine-great with the ginger. Really good recipe overall.

The Best Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
The quintessential meatball! So good and a piece of cake to make. I didn't have the stale bread so I used bread crumbs and they were delicious.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
The very best carrot cake recipe out there. I made the cake exactly as called for and it turned out GREAT. I would suggest, per a previous reviewer, to simmer the raisins in orange or pineapple juice to plump them up a bit. Also, be sure you really strain the juice off the pineapple before mixing into the batter. This is a true carrot cake recipe and worth the effort!

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
Great recipe. I put them in mini bundt pans and they turned out great! I've been looking for a cinnamon roll recipe that doesn't take hours and hours and this one is perfect. I used my Kitchen Aid mixer with the dough hook attachment-which worked well. I needed to add a tablespoon more butter (didn't use margarine) and another tablespoon milk to get the the right consistency. Don't be afraid of using yeast on this one-it couldn't be easier!

Flounder Mediterranean

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
You must try this! I omitted the capers and olives, personal preference and used diced (petite) tomatoes with the juices. Drizzled some olive oil over the filets and arranged most of the sauce around them and just a bit on top. Then, sprinkled italian bread crumbs and parmesan cheese over the filets. Placed in the oven for the recommended baking time...created the perfect "crust". Crispy on top-moist and flaky on the bottom! I think it's really important to simmer the sauce until reduced by at least half....otherwise too wet. My 4 year old and 8 year old boys LOVED it!

South Texas Carne Guisada

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
I've rated this recipe before but changed one thing, which I believe, makes it really special. Add a splash ( or two ) of red wine while simmering. This deepens the flavor and complements the beef well. This probably doesn't make it "authentic" but you won't be disappointed if you decide to try it. Either way, this recipe is a keeper!

Ragu Bolognese

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
This ragu recipe is outstanding. I make it ahead and put in quart size bags in the freezer. When I want a fast, authentic tasting, meaty spaghetti sauce I combine one quart sized frozen package of ragu and mix with my favorite jar sauce and serve over pasta. I follow the recipe to the letter, mmmmm good!

Broccoli, Rice, Cheese, and Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
This is a good basic recipe but uses too many "processed" ingredients for my liking. I use fresh broccoli, cooked-cubed chicken breasts and real, grated, cheddar cheese. Take the extra time to make this recipe with fresh ingredients- they are so much better for us!

Love the Mama Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
Pretty good flavor but not enough lemon. One reviewer mentioned that they doubled the lemon topping, which is NECESSARY for this recipe. Rather than making this again, I would probably be inclined to find another recipe.

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
I don't think you can go wrong with this one. It's a great, basic, recipe and has just the right amount of sweetness to appeal to kiddos! This is a staple on the grill at our house.

Chicken and Red Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
Not awful but really disappointing. The reviews with this one are all over the board so I encourage trying it if you are interested. To us, it tasted like chicken cooked in red wine. The "sauce" was awkward with the chicken and didn't enhance the taste of the chicken at all.

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
Pretty good overall. I saute the chicken rather than bake, as baking can tend to dry out the chicken. Also, I use about 1/2 a bag of fresh (washed and dried) spinach spread out evenly on the bottom of the pan. I also add a splash of white wine. This has a "sophisticated" taste that is good enough for company.

Sirloin Tips and Mushrooms

Asian Beef Skewers

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
Good recipe. I used top sirloin and sliced very thin. Marinated most of the day and was really pleased with the result on the BBQ. The thickness of the meat and length of time on the BBQ, along with the marinade are the keys to perfectly cooked meat.

My Kid's Favorite Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
Really good. Followed recipe to the letter with one exception. Two tablespoons of steak seasoning seemed like a lot so I seasoned each chop before browning them. This worked well and wasn't overpowering. I used Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce, Montreal Steak Seasoning, and an Amber Ale for the beer. If you are looking for a different way to prepare pork chops, this is a great recipe for you.
