Hawaiian Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
We have not tasted it yet. I just took two of them out of the oven & my house smells incredible. I'm made banana nut bread since I was 8-12 & I'm going to be 65 this year. But I just got tired of it. I make it for friends, particularly during the holidays, but this would be a real nice kicked up version. Can't wait for it to cool enough so we can taste it. I'm going to give it a 4 until we taste it, but I tasted the batter & it was good enough to eat with a spoon.

Beef Pot Pie III

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2012
I have made chicken, turkey & veggie pot pies since I was about 10, but never a traditional "homemade" from scratch beef pot pie. I've made Shepard's pie, enchilada pie, and every kind of quiche imaginable (including about 8 original quiche recipes, like my Reuben quiche). I already had a good idea about what to put in a beef pot pie, & how to season it to our taste, but wasn't sure about how to thicken the gravy so it isn't too thin or to thick. I just found this site last week, when looking for a recipe for a Barbie Doll Cake. Everyone was so helpful I figured I could get some info here. This recipe was most helpful regarding thickening, so I based my beef pot pie on this procedure. Admittedly, I also added some veggies I like, like celery & mushrooms, and more seasonings, but it came out perfect with respect to the sauce, and we all loved it!

Easy Chicken Enchilada Crescent Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
I LOVE Crescent Roll recipes. I'm from Ca, and I can make chicken enchiladas from scratch, including my own "red gravy", with is what "enchilada sauce" is actually called, but what a long & messy job. I kicked that recipe up 4 notches. I added 1 finely chopped jalapeno,& 1 can of chopped green chilies to the chicken & enchilada sauce. When cooked, I topped each enchilada w/fresh grated queso fresco, finely chopped cilantro, & a small dollop of sour cream. It was such an easy and delicious dinner! Thanks a million for the recipe. I do a lot with Crescent rolls, & have done all of the "More Recipes Like This" suggestions. But the chicken enchiladas was a new one. Not something I will make every week, but when a delicious and quick meal is called for, this & a salad is great!
