Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2012
A good way to use up some ground beef. My only problem with it was that it was a little salty. I think next time I will do garlic powder instead of the salt. Topped with a little sour cream and black olives.

Cranberry and Cilantro Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2012
I used chicken broth to cook the uinoa instead of water. The only other alteration I made was to add a little cyanne pepper. Nice flavors, next time I will remember to start with half of a lime then taste before adding more. My lime was pretty big and it ended up having more lime flavor than I wanted.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2012
Awesome recipe. The only thing I did differently is cook the quinoa in a rice cooker with the spices and veg. broth. Sauteed the onions and garlic then mixed it all together.

Southern Praline Pecan Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
Nothing spectacular and not worth making again - very sweet. I pretty much followed the recipe except for the pecans. It crumbled apart when I went to take it out of the bundt pan.

Nacho Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
I liked the recipe a lot - my husband likes regular chili better. I did not make this recipe in the oven. I browned the beef and onion then drained and added the rest of the ingredients and simmered on the stove (also omitted the celery). The chedar soup was totally not needed. It would have been just as good with some shredded cheddar cheese.

Panuchos

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
I have made these a few times. I have used shredded chicken and also recently tried shredded deer roast and it was equally good. I sliced avacado and squeezed lime juice over the avacado. I also usually top with cilantro. This recipe is an easy one to try out on company.

Bean 'N' Beef Crescent Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
I almost gave this a 3 star rating. It was ok but needed some help. We followed the original recipe and I think it could have used some more meat and less taco seasoning. It could have benefited from some chopped tomato and lettuce on top too. It wasn't a bad start to a decent recipe though.

Manicotti Alla Romana

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
This recipe would have been 5 stars had it called for sausage instead of hamburger. I saw the reviews and wished I had not ignored them - sausage would have been perfect. I did not use 2 TBS of the chicken bullion - only used one TBS and was glad I did or it would have been extremely salty. Great recipe though. The white sauce added a lot of flavor to the dish.

Perfect Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2011
This was a great recipe. I did not have any sherry so I substituted it with water. I also used siracha instead of chile paste. After cooking the chicken I threw it in a bowl and spooned the sauce over the chicken and tossed. Kids loved it.

Cream Cheese Filled Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
These were good - I followed the recipe except for using pecans instead of sunflower seeds. I also replaced 1/2 of the oil with applesauce. These came out moist - my kids liked them but they were not overly excited about the cream cheese - I think I would have liked it better had I added a little sugar to the cream cheese.

Fabulous Wet Burritos

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2011
These were good - not quite fabulous. I followed the recipe except I did not add the whole can of refried beans and was glad that I didn't. I also baked these in the oven instead of in the microwave - but I think the result would have been the same. They were just missing something - not sure what.

Fiery Fish Tacos with Crunchy Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
This recipe was good but it was missing something. I ended up making a sauce with yogurt and lots of seasonings that I had from another fish taco recipe and that helped -

Smore Stuffed Brownies

Nice - kind of hard to tell when they are done though - pay attention to how long they are in the oven..

This recipe was good. My husband did not like it with ranch dressing - he preferred sour cream and taco sauce.

Fresh Tomato Shrimp Pasta

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
Easy to prepare - but was missing something. My husband and I tried several different things. Siracha, parmesean, more salt and pepper and it was still lacking. It needed more spinach too. I wanted to like it..

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
Great recipe. The only changes I made was to replace half of the oil with applesauce, reduced sugar to 1 1/2 cups and added an extra cup of carrots. The cake turned out very moist with lots of flavor. I used this frosting recipe too and only used 2 cups of powdered sugar - it was plenty sweet. I also topped the cake with toasted pecans.

Homemade Twinkies®

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
The filling is very sweet but sooo good. I was wanting to make cupcakes so I only made half the amount of filling. I still had quite a bit left over and it is too sweet to frost the whole cupcake with. So I added the remainder of whipped topping to the left over filling and piped that on the cupcakes - perfect. I also used chocolate cake and chocolate pudding mix.
