Rice and Lentil Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
Very yummy and wholesome meal that you can feel good about serving to your family. Only glitch was that at 40 minutes, the lentils still had a bite to them but the rice was perfectly done and the liquid was cooked out. I wasn't sure if I should add liquid to continue cooking, and the crunch wasn't too crunchy, so we ate it like that. My 5yo had two servings! The 4yo didn't care for it, but he's one that the food must be visually appealing and this wasn't so much. Only changes I made were to use a half lb of sausage instead of 1lb, and substituted celery for the bell pepper. Will definitely make again but tweak the liquid/cooking time. Oh, and bonus points for only requiring one cooking pot!

Navy Bean Soup I

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
This was great - omitted the tomatoes and bay leaf, and added a few extra chicken bouillon cubes, probably would have still tasted great as is. Soaked beans overnight and put in crockpot on high - was done by 4-5 hours (did add some extra water). Kids even gobbled it up (5yo & 3yo!) :)

Crispy Turnip 'Fries'

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
5 stars because of the health factor! Yummy, would definitely satisfy a french fry craving. I omitted the paprika, and probably could have decreased the oil (not sure if I really used 3lbs of turnips, though).

Chicken Katsu

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
It was a little bland - I used Tony Chachere's cajun seasoning instead of salt/pepper... next time I might use parmesan cheese in place of the flour.

Beef and Pepper Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
My husband and I love this (minus the mushrooms) - the kids will eat it occasionally (they're picky on different days). So easy to make and very different!

Chayote Squash Side Dish

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
YUM! I received some chayote squash in our church's Angel Food Menu Latin Veggie box, and didn't have the first clue what to do with them - this recipe was perfect! Had everything on hand, even some limes to swap out for the vinegar. SO easy, and SO good. Even my little ones tried/ate a few bites (the red pepper flakes were quite spicy, though - might want to leave them out if you're trying to broad your children's vegetable horizon)

Ramen Cabbage Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
This is so yummy and versatile. My grandmother adds green onions and peas, and I added almond slivers as well. I also beg to differ on the comment that it doesn't hold well! It might not have the quite the same crunch the next day, but it's still delish :) (p.s. we add salt & pepper to taste also)

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
Super delicious!! I too used 1/2 whole wheat flower and 1/2 white flour, applesauce in place of oil, and next time will try the 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown sugar. These are scrumptious!

Frijoles a la Charra

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
This was pretty good - it would have been much better if I'd left out the beer. I tasted it along the way, and after adding the beer, it was such a powerful taste that it was hard to overcome (I used Bud Light). I also used the can of tomatoes with chiles in it, and definitely wasn't too spicy. Kids and husband ate it, so all was not lost :)

Crawfish Etouffee Like Maw-Maw Used to Make

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2008
Great starter recipe - I left out the cumin/worchestire and in its place added some Tony Chachere's. My picky children (3yo & 15mos) gobbled it up! Thanks for the recipe!

Allana's Excellent Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2007
SO DELICIOUS! And incredibly easy too. When I make it the next time, I'll cut the potatoes a lot smaller and add more ham. It definitely does not need a lot of salt - I lightly sprinkled seasoning salt, and it was still fairly salty (not too much, tho). But very delicious and very easy! Hubby thought I spent beaucoup time in the kitchen when really I had not! (it mostly cooks itself)

Chocolate Mousse Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
This was pretty good - pretty rich, but good. I think it's one of those recipes where it comes down to the little things, i.e. the flavor of the instant coffee, whether or not you add the almond/vanilla extract. I didn't have the almond extract so I left it out - would have been interested to try it or even the mint flavored extract.

Cinnamon Snack Mix

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2006
I made this a few years ago as a homemade gift for my grandmother... she LOVED it! She made me give her the recipe and has been making it on a regular basis ever since. I don't remember the changes I made other than to add a sprinkling of cinnamon and to stir halfway through (and I believe I actually used the ramen noodles). Thanks for the recipe!

Ultimo's No-Bake Blueberry Squares

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2006
This was *delicious*. I, too, cut down on the sugar just as a precaution and it was quite yummy. It never actually firmed up, though, and I even put it in the freezer instead of the fridge for an hour. I think it was my fault though because I forgot about the lemon juice/salt/vanilla extract until after I'd already put in the blueberries. I think maybe increasing the lemon juice will help it to firm up some more too. But it was still a delicious dessert! Will definitely make again.

Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
Yum! This was very good. I made a few changes per previous reviews (1 cup of milk, 1 cup of half-and-half), and I also broiled the bread (unsliced) for a few minutes per side. I've never had crispy french toast, but with all the "too soggy" reviews I thought a slight crisp to the bread wouldn't hurt. I brought the dish to a ladies' bible study group and they all loved it! A few even asked for the recipe. Oh, and I sprinkled some powdered sugar on top. YUM! :)

Smothered Green Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2005
These were pretty good; something was missing, though I couldn't figure out what, but I'd definitely make them again as is (but with more salt/pepper).

Barlow's Blackened Catfish

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2005
I followed this recipe to a "T" and I did not like it at all. The only thing keeping me from giving it 1 star is that the hubby liked it enough to eat most of his fillet. I'm from South Louisiana, grew up eating cajun food, and something about this just wasn't right. I think it was the italian dressing, but if I make this again I'll use 1tsp of all the spices and possibly substitute Tony Chachere's cajun seasoning for the cayenne pepper (and of course, figure out something else to use in place of the italian dressing).

Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2005
These were really great... my first time making "successful" mashed potatoes! ("successful" as in we actually liked them and they didn't taste bland) In my opinion, what made all the difference in the world was the addition of onion salt... though... I didn't have any onion salt so I used garlic salt (ok, so what made all the difference was that the recipe *said* to use onion salt, which gave me the idea to use the garlic salt) ;-) Anyway, they were really yummy and I only used about 2.5lbs potatoes, 1 package cream cheese, and half a cup of sour cream (plus the pepper and garlic salt of course). They were even good the next day! Thanks!!

Smooth and Creamy Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2005
This is heavenly... quite rich, but very good! I, too, used crunchy peanut butter and I found it easier to mix the ingredients by stirring them one at a time into the whipped topping, although next time I'll mash up the cream cheese before stirring it in -- with both the cream cheese and the whipped topping being white, it was hard to tell if I got all the lumps of cream cheese mixed in. But a delicious and easy recipe!

Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2005
mmmmmmm!!!! This was SO good! It highly exceeded my expectations. I was mainly only cooking it because DH has been bugging me about cooking more mexican, but it was surprisingly good for being so simple. I followed other reviewers' suggestions and made the following changes: added 1/2 packet of taco seasoning, sauteed onions while the ground beef was browning, used 1/2 can of mexican Rotel (DH isn't a fan of tomatoes, hence the 1/2 instead of whole can), put cheese on all the layers (didn't need 4 full cups), sprinkled chili powder instead of using 2 full tbsp, and put a very thin layer of meat mixture on bottom of dish. I used flour tortillas because that was all I had and chili beans because I couldn't find ranch at the store, but I'd like to try it with the corn tortillas next time. And it's just as delicious the next day! DH even ate it as leftovers and that is a rarity. Thanks so much! It's definitely becoming a regular. :)
