Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2013
I was in a hurry, I didn't know I was out of taco seasoning, so I didn't get a chance to read the reviews as well as I usually do. I did read a few though and took bits from each. I doubled the batch for 3 lbs of ground beef. I doubled all the ingredients except - I tripled the garlic, cut the salt and pepper down a little and substituted cayenne pepper for the red pepper. I added some Better than Bouillon to the meat while it was cooking. I also mixed a little flour in a jar with water and poured that over it. Turned out wonderful.

Oatmeal Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
These were the BEST cookies! The only change I made was using quick oats, it's all I had on hand. I also added a teaspoon of cinnamon and a 1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves. I really think that made a huge difference, the smelled wonderful cooking. I cooked them at 350 degrees for 11 minutes exactly, then let them stand for about 5 minutes on the cookie sheet before I removed them. They turned out absolutely perfect. I made the first batch with the chocolate chips that's called for, then I made another batch with raisins instead. They both turned out PERFECT! Thank you so much for this recipe!

Buttery Corn Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
For once, I made this recipe exactly as stated instead of changing things up. It turned out great. I am not a big cornbread fan but my family loves cornbread. This cornbread is sweet, which is how we like it, and turned out perfect. I wouldn't change a thing.

Corn Bisque with Smoked Sausage & Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
This turned out great. I read through some reviews and made a few changes. I cooked some minced garlic in with the onion. After adding the milk and bringing it to a boil, I added my potatoes (uncooked), frozen corn, sausage and frozen, cooked, peeled shrimp. It turned out great and was a wonderful dinner (paired with cornbread from this site) for a cold, rainy evening.

Pizza Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
My family loved this dish, I did edit the ingredients somewhat though. The only reason I'm am rating it 4 stars is because it was not my favorite dinner, but my husband and children thought it was wonderful (I'm not a big pizza fan either!). I made it a little healthier. I used whole wheat rotini, ground turkey and turkey pepperoni. I added a can of diced tomatoes, some oregano and some basil to the jar spaghetti sauce. I layered the rotini on the bottom of a sprayed baking dish then put a small amount of shredded parmesan over the rotini. Then I added the turkey/sauce mix on top and covered that with a 1/2 cup of fat free shredded mozzarella cheese. My family requested that I make this regularly, so it was a hit. Thank you so much for the recipe!

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
Wonderful! These turned out perfect. The only changes to the ingredients that I made was that I used bread flour instead of all purpose. When I took them out of the breadmaker, I made 12 rolls and put them in a 9x13 glass pan. Man, they got HUGE! They turned out so wonderful! They had a great flavor and everyone loved them. Thank you so much for the recipe!

Pumpkin Cookies V

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
These turned out so wonderful. My entire family couldn't get enough. I made 56 cookies and they were gone in 2 days. I tried to follow the recipe as written, but I only had 1 cup left of shortening so I used that and 2 sticks of margarine (well, whatever Parkay is). It turned out just fine, better than fine if you ask my family. I also did add an extra cup of powdered sugar to the icing. I tried "dipping" the tops of the cookies in the icing like others have suggested, but that just didn't work for me. So I had to do it the hard way and spread each cookie with icing. I will tell you though, make sure the cookies are warm when you spread the icing, it makes the icing smooth out and looks much nicer. This is no doubt a keeper. I have been asked to make another batch today.

Crunch Bar

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
For starters, this taste wonderful. My whole family enjoyed the taste. I did change a few things after reading all the reviews though. I lined my pan with no-stick foil, it stuck. That was the first time EVER that I had anything stick to no-stick foil. Next time, and I will be making it again, I will use the no-stick foil and I will be spraying it with Pam first. I also used Club crackers instead of Saltines. I just thought being a "toffee" taste, Club would work better. I also increased the sugar and butter by 1/2 cup each like some suggested. Well, maybe it needed to cook a little longer because of that? There are parts of it that are pretty sticky even after spending all day and night in the fridge. I think next time I will stick with the original 1 cup of each and see how that works. Also, I didn't have any problems getting the chopped pecans (I'm not a walnut fan) to stick to the top. I used milk chocolate chips and only had to let them sit for a couple of minutes before I easily spread them over the top. Then after I sprinkled the chopped pecans over the top, I just used my hand to press the pecans down into the chocolate a little, worked just fine. Over all this is a great recipe and it has a wonderful taste. I will be trying it again with Club crackers, milk chocolate and pecans, but I will be sticking to the original 1 cup each of butter and sugar.

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2008
This recipe turned out wonderful. I did make some changes though. I used olive oil instead of veggie and I added 1 tsp. of basil and 1 tsp. of garlic to the dough. Because it wasn't that big of a deal, I let the dough rise on the stove top for about an hour. I had dishes and other things to do, so I figured, why not? It rose up beautifully and made an excellent pizza. I used a 9x13 baking pan instead of a pizza pan. I do believe that next time I will use an 11x15 pan. Update* I have tried many size pans with this recipe, most of the time my husband thinks that the crust is too thick. I found that dividing the dough into two 9x13 pans work perfectly for us. That way I can also make two different pizzas and everyone is happy.

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2007
Perfect! I have tried this "cookie" for many years and it has NEVER set. This recipe worked wonderfully, they were perfect. The only changes I made were that I added 4 Tbsp. of cocoa and I boiled it for just about 2 minutes. Thank you so much for the great recipe!

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: May 14, 2007
Perfect, these turned out absolutely perfect. I followed the recipe exactly and I put the peanut butter cups in the freezer while I was making the cookies. I also put the dough in the fridge while the oven was preheating and I rolled the balls in white sugar before I dropped them in the mini muffin pans and I cooked them for 9 minutes. It made 36 of them and they all turned out perfect. This will definitely be a keeper (and made often) at our house.

Deb's Millionaire Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2007
This cake was wonderful. The mixture of chocolate and peanut butter is always terrific. The only change I made was that I used milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet, I just don't care for the darker chocolates. Also, I didn't use the stove to melt everything, I cheated and used the microwave. I will no doubt be making this one again.

Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
I am sorry, but I didn't care for this recipe. I was afraid the semi-sweet taste would be overwhelming so I added 2 cups of milk chocolate chips and 1 cup of semi-sweet. It was still too much. I also added about a cup of coconut and that was a good thing. Maybe if I would have used only milk chocolate chips it would have been better. The texture was fine though and it was super easy. My only complaint was the semi-sweet taste. My husband took the entire batch to work and they devoured it. It was a hit at his job.

Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2006
This recipe turned out really well. I gave it four stars because as my husband would say, "I tweeked it some". I have to admit, at first I was a little hesitant to put cream of mushroom soup in a mexican casserole, but it was good. I did use Ranch Style Beans, I believe that they add a certain flavor that only they can add. I have many recipes using Ranch Beans and I am grateful that they are a common staple in South Texas. I used a can of Rotel tomatoes and I used flour tortillas. I ommited the chili powder and instead used a half a packet of taco seasoning. I browned the ground beef with onion and then seasoned it with Tony's (I put that in everything!) and garlic powder. I did as others suggested and put a small amount of meat mixture on the bottom of the pan, then layered the tortillas then meat then cheese, then repeated the layers once more. I also don't measure cheese, I just add what looks good, but I probably used approximately 2 cups instead of the 4 that's listed. I also used Mexican Blend shredded cheese. Overall it was very good and was a nice dinner on a cold and wet night.

Mini Upside Down Pineapple Cakes

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2006
I thought this was wonderful. I just cut a small piece of the pineapple out to make it fit in a standard muffin cup, it was easy. Everyone loved them and I will be making them again.

German Chocolate Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
This cake is wonderful. I have to agree, the presentation isn't great but if you don't try it because of that, you are missing out on a wonderful cake. It is very rich and tasty. I saw that others complained it needed more chocolate, I don't believe that it does. German chocolate cake isn't supposed to be heavy on the chocolate, it was just right. Thank you for the great recipe.

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2005
This was really good. I used 1 1/2 packages of sausage, french bread, 12 eggs and I added onions to the sausage while I was browning it. My whole family loves it.

Treasure Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2005
These were good, different. There was so many chocolate chips in it, compared to batter, that I had a hard time getting them to stick together. They were good though.
