Sour Cream Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2004
I'm surprised at all the positive reviews for this recipe. It was okay, but not very flavorful. I tasted the fat and dairy from the sour cream and cream cheese more than anything. I felt it was very heavy and drowned out any flavor that could have been present in the chicken or soup. The crackers became soggy and did not add texture to the casserole. I added canned mushrooms, tarragon, poultry seasoning and pepper, and that didn't help matters. I agree that this is a very fatty dish. It was very easy to make, but I don't think I'll make this again.

Beef and Biscuit

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2004
This recipe is so flavorful yet mild. We call it "Taco Pie." It has been 3 years since I found this recipe. Both my 2- and 5-year old love it! I don't know anyone who dislikes this meal. It's the best! My only tweaks are to use 1/2 tsp seasoned salt and 1/2 tsp garlic powder instead of garlic salt; and to use a full 4 oz can of mild diced green chiles. Also, you do not need to bake the biscuit crust beforehand. You just flatten the biscuit halves until they are less than 1/2" thick when they are all flattened into a single large circle in the bottom of the pie dish. It is never doughy, and always turns out delicious! I only disagree about the number of servings this dish makes-- 2 pies serve 4 adults and 3 under 5's with a slice to spare.

Cheeseburger Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2004
This is a great basic recipe. My 2-year old loves it! I did not do the cocktail/tomato sauce topping due to time/ingredient limitations. I think you could put a full can of tomato sauce in it and bypass the topping. I also used black pepper instead and it still tasted good. For the pie crust, the store-brand generic pie crust I've used the first 3 times I made this, worked much better than the brand-name kind I used the last time I made this (which was horribly dry and crusty). I served it with corn in the pie or on the side. Both taste great!

Chicken Suiza Cornbread Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2004
I was looking for a mild yet flavorful chicken dish to serve my rather picky 2-year old, who has been rejecting most foods that aren't made of ground beef. However, this was a hit! I only put 1/4 cup of chopped red onion with 3 tbsp margarine into the cornbread mix (which was Jiffy, as others used). For the chicken meat, I microwaved 3 chicken breast halves, which probably made closer to 3 cups of chicken meat. I also used 2 eggs, a whole can of chiles and probably only put a 1/2 cup of Monterey Jack on top. For the mushrooms, used a can of Pieces and Stems. So, it was meatier, not soupy/side-dishy. I am definitely making this again! We had broccoli on the side, which tasted good with the chicken.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2004
I like this recipe, it's very attractive and colorful to eat, but it's very mild in both taste and texture. I've made this three times. Mashing the carrots would go faster if you had a food mill. I added cooked frozen green beans to the burger mixture for texture. Next time, I would cook the hamburger with seasoning, such as a seasoned salt and pepper, as well as add some Worcestershire sauce to the ketchup and broth. I used chicken broth the last time I made it and this didn't seem to be a noticeable change from beef broth. I also used Monterey Jack the last time instead of Cheddar on and in the potatoes, and that tasted good too. I'll be making this again, but will try to add more flavor.

Apple Pork Chop Skillet

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2004
This was a horrible recipe. The pork chops were incredibly dry (despite merely searing the pork to avoid overcooking), the stuffing spongy and the apple juice overly sweet. This was an embarrassment to serve, especially when pork chops are normally my "specialty." I had doubts when I read the recipe and the results confirmed them. If I made this again, I'd sear the chops, add the apples, liquid and flavoring (while making the liquid half wine and half apple juice), bring it to a boil, then let it simmer for 20 minutes or so. THEN, once the chops were cooked, I'd remove them, and cook the stuffing mix in the liquid.

Best Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2005
I am so glad I now have a tuna casserole recipe I really like! Only changes I made were to use frozen peas and carrots instead of just the peas, and the chips on top were Cheddar and Sour Cream flavor. This was delicious! I was shocked that the 2 cans of soup was just right. I feel it would have been too watery with milk added. For a 2nd try I think I would add a little pepper!
