Excellent!! Just used olive oil, kielbasa, no file powder, and added some shrimp during the last 7 minutes. Since I added the shrimp, I used a full 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes. Also seasoned with some thyme and fresh basil. Cooked rice separately, so skipped on the broth.

Easy Pizza Sauce III

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2007
With modifications, very good! Based on reviews I decided to use fresh garlic (2 cloves), 2 tsp of basil, 1/2 tsp of sugar, 1/2 a tsp of onion powder, and only 2t dried oregano. Still very easy! Used with 'Grilled Pizza Wraps' recipe on this site. Delish!

Fresh Cherry Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2005
I used sweet cherries and also halved both sugar amounts. Very tasty. I used 2% milk which worked great. I also added 1 t. vanilla in with the milk, and sprinkled cherries with cinnamon, brown sugar, and cocoa powder. Thanks a lot!

Flavorful Mexican Mole

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2004
This wasn't like the dark mole i'm used to, but i should've guessed that from the amount of tomatoes. I made a half recipe, but used 3 jalapenos, and it was just way too spicy for me. After tasting the sauce before heating it, I ended up throwing half of it away in order to fix it up and allow it to fit into my food processor. After making some changes, it was awesome! I calculated what the changes would be to keep the original serving size and they would be to use half the amount of tomatoes, use only 2 jalapenos, double the amounts of walnuts, sesame seeds, raisins, and chocolate, use 3 T garlic, and add in the veg. stock to desired consistency (i probably used 1/2 of suggested amount; it will thicken a little when cooking with main entree). I also made it with chicken legs and thighs.

Peach Cobbler V

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2007
I loved how easy this was. Based on some reviews, I did make some changes. I used 1 1/2 cups flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and nutmeg, and I used half white sugar and half brown sugar (for a total of 1 c. sugar, which was plenty sweet for us). I also used 30 oz. canned peaches, and felt like it still needed more, maybe another 15 oz. can, as there was more "cake" than peaches.

Five-Minute Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
This is a great pie! I put whipped cream into a cooked crust first, then a generous layer of bananas, then the blueberries on top. Delish!

Tater Tot Casserole III

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2006
Didn't have much milk so I went through the reviews and improvised: I seasoned 1 lb. meat with salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder, and worcesteshire, and sauteed some diced poblano pepper with meat. I put the meat and peppers on the bottom of 9x13. I added a layer of French fried onions on top. Then, in the same skillet I cooked the meat in, I heated the cream of mushroom, 2 cans drained green beans, and 1 small can tomato sauce. I added this on top, then the tots, then some shredded cheese. Very homey and yummy!

Shrimp Burritos

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2006
My husband and I really enjoyed these! Nice spicy kick. I used whole black beans instead of refried, and sour cream instead of yogurt, which I didn't have on hand. Will def. make again.

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2006
Very yummy and simple. Has a nice different taste. Added some pecans for a nutty flavor. Didn't have buttermilk, so used 3 teaspoons of vinegar and the rest 2% milk to make total of 3/4 c. Still very good!

Pepperoni Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2006
Mmmmm....yummy! Nice and juicy. The pieces of pepperoni came out perfectly crispy. I just used 4 oz. of the pre-sliced pepperoni. Added an extra clove of garlic, and 2 T water as someone suggested, and perfect!

Grilled Sausages with Caramelized Onions and Apples

Reviewed: May 11, 2006
Hubbie and I thought this was yummy. I used pre-cooked kielbasa, so skipped the boiling, and just added it sliced up into the apple/onion mixture after it caramalized.

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2006
Great taste! After 6 hrs, the meat was so tender it was almost melting (not so great on presentation, though). Maybe I sliced my sirloin way too thin...Other than that, I used worcesteshire sauce instead of soy, and browned my meat with some fresh garlic. Instead of boullion & water, I used 1.5 cans of beef broth. I added my peppers & onions for the last 2 hrs. and they were still too tender for my taste. Next time I'll add them for the last hr.

Ham N Asparagus Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
I didn't try the dip, just the roll-ups, which I liked. Simple, tasty, pretty! I put them in the oven on low after I rolled them, to warm them up a little.

Cranberry Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2007
These were just good for me, not outstanding. Maybe I'm just not accustomed to the texture of whatever the veggie patties are made of. I agree that the balls should be drizzled, as I found the color of the cranberry sauce not-so attractive, and with the balls all mixed in there, it was blah looking (to me). I'm going to try them for a shower, and see how they go over. The flavor WAS really good.

Steak Hash

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
Great way to use up the leftover ribeyes! I didn't already have cooked potatoes, so I just diced some up, and cooked them with salt and pepper in a large skillet, then added the peppers and onions, one garlic clove, then the steak pieces. Used colby jack cheese and was yummy!

Sweet and Mild Cooked Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
I think the outcome of this salsa can depend a lot on the type and size of the tomatoes used. Roma are the best for salsas, IMO. Mine were a tad on the small side, so I had to use about 10 of them to keep the salsa from tasting too vinegary. I only simmered mine for 2 hrs. and yummy!! I do puree the final product to hide the chopped onions from my kids, and only use 2 oz. of the diced chiles. Is good!

Melanie's Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2007
So very easy and tasty. I ended up adding more of all of the spices. It was a *tad* bit on the tomato side, even with 1.4 lbs. of meat. Topped with green onions and shredded cheese. Oh, and I threw in half a can of diced green chiles that I needed to use.
