Lasagna Roll Ups

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2014
This was not as messy, nor as time consuming as I thought it would be. Did not use the tofu, nor the ricotta because I don't like either. Used cottage cheese instead. I also found the 1 lb mozzarella a little misleading. Used 2 c shredded as another reviewer suggested. Might use 3 next time. Forgot to add the spinach, but it was still good. Added sauted onions, garlic and basil as another reviewer suggested. Cooked the noodles just until almost done. Kept them laid out in cool water until I needed them. Laid each one on a paper towel, dried the top surface with a quick swiped of another paper towel. Starting about an inch from the end, laid a strip of filling down the center third of the noodle stopping about 2 inches from the end. This gives the filling room to expand as you roll without squishing out the end. Topped the ridge of the filling with a thin row sauce. Think snow on a mountain top. Folded the starting one inch of noodle over the filling and rolled. No squishing out the side, nor out the end. Put four roll-ups in a small glass dish, topped with more sauce and mozzarella for dinner that night. Placed the rest on a flat pan sprayed with Pam and froze. (Made 16 roll-ups total!) Now I can take out as many as I need. Very good recipe, extremely versatile! Thanks for sharing!

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2014
Wow! Super Easy! Great Taste! Super flexible. Use less seasoning and mild salsa for those who don't like spicy. More seasoning and hot salsa for those who do like spicey. Use small prepackaged breasts that thaw quickly or huge breasts for those who like lots of meat. Serve over rice, serve over pasta, or serve with a baked potato. Love it, love it, love it! Thanks for the recipe! This recipe is going in our permanent rotation!

Tex-Mex Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
My husband loves soup. If I'm going to use up all my left over turkey, the recipe had better knock my socks off. Alas this did not. I was disappointed.

Roasted Pears with Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2012
I really WANTED to like this recipe. So many stars and great reviews ... but it just tasted like sugar and pears. Nothing special. It was just ok.

Creamy Onion Gravy

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
I really wanted to like this. I'm not sure what I didn't like about it, maybe it was the taste of the buttermilk. I may try it again with regular milk.

Baked Tortilla Chips

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
I hate to be one of the few dissenters. I WANTED to like this recipe. It sounded good and a perfect snack for dh whose cholesterol is eleveated. I tried the original version and several variations of the spice combinations, corn and flour tortillas. I (and he) would rather eat two regular chips than a plateful of these. The sugar and cinnamon recipe was alright, but really only the children will go out of their way to eat them.

Turtle Candy

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2005
Because I love turtles, I have tried to make them every year. They have never turned out until this year. I decided to analyze what I did not like about them. First, using five pecans made them just way too big, so I used just one pecan. Then I cut the caramels in half and put them on the pecans. Second, they were always too hard. So I baked them for just 2 to 2 and a half minutes at 300 degrees ... just until they were malable. Then I smoothed the caramels over the pecans with my fingers and let them cool. Third the chocolate was always too tacky, it just never firmed up. So I added one eighth of a bar of parafin to the chocolate and dropped a dollop on the caramel/pecans. They turned out perfect! I've made two batches this year so far ... one with dark chocolte chips and one with semi-sweet chocolate chips. They were both yummy! Hope this helps others who have had problems with turtles.

Easy Cheese Ball II

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2005
I'm making this again for our Thanksgiving family get together. It is quick, can be made the day before, and is DELISH! I've made the original recipe and sometimes I've added green onions, sometimes red peppers, sometimes both. It's a very versatile recipe that can be changed based on your mood or what you have on hand. Thanks again for a great recipe!

Potato Leek Soup III

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2005
This soup is awesome! Taking the advice of others, I cut the calories and salt down by using 3/4 c butter, a 14oz can of evaporated milk and a half a container of heavy cream. I also did not add the salt assuming that people could add it to their bowls. In addition I added two sliced carrots for color and some smoked ham just because hubby likes to see meat somewhere, any where on the table. Oh, and my grocery store did not have leeks so I used green onions. Next time if I have to do that substitution again, I'll use more green onion. I also cut about a quarter of the potato pieces into smaller pieces knowing they would cook into mush and make the soup even thicker. This soup is definitely going in my recipe box to use at least once a month. Yum!

Karen A's Chocolate Dump Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2004
I have made this recipe for years. Got it from my mother, who got it from her sister, who got it from her mother-in-law. It's definitely been passed around. I have found that the finished quality is directly related to the kind of cake mix used. If I use the cheapest cake mix I can find ... it tastes that way. However, if I use a good quality cake mix such as Duncan Hines Devil's Food cake mix ... it is oh so yummy. Also, it cannot be a mix with pudding already in the mix. Those who have been unhappy with this cake, try it again with a good quality cake mix (if you didn't already) and see if you like it better. I give this recipe 4 stars, only because it can be messed up. A truly 5 star recipe is one that turns out great so matter what the cook does.
