Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
Love this recipe! DO NOT use whole wheat pasta though. I am a huge fan of whole wheat/whole grain, but the taste was just too heavy for this nice, light dish. Also, I would recommend adding the bacon separately into individual portions, if you think you might have any left over afterwards. By the next day the bacon is chewy and unpleasant.

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
This is very yummy - but, oh my!, what a lot of work! LOTS of squeezing. I would not make this again without some type of a juicer. Just takes too much time!

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
This is very very good. I did use a little less olive oil, though. And I tried what another reviewer suggested - boiling it after marinating and adding mushrooms to serve as a gravy/sauce. Once it boiled down a little, it was VERY salty!! So if you decide to make it into a gravy, be sure to add some water to it.

Beef and Rice Dish

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
A little bland. But not bad. I added some cumin and fresh cilantro, which made it a little better.

Deluxe Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
The dough was way too soft to do cut-outs. Even after chilling for a couple of hours. It needed about another 1-2 cups more of flour, then it worked great. I added about 1/4 tsp. salt to the recipe, as well. The almond extract makes them smell wonderful!

Baked Potato Soup V

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
Soooo cozy and delicious. I used 2% milk to make it lower-fat, and also used just 1 stick of butter and 1/2 cup flour. After cooking the potatoes in the microwave, I cut them into chunks and left the skin on because I love potato skins. I didn't have any green onion, so I put in some dried, chopped chives and dried, chopped onion. It was so good. It did end up a little too thick, though, so I added a little more milk at the end of cooking.

Pumpkin Pie Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
I didn't have time to cook this in the crock pot, so I put it on the stovetop, covered, on low, and it was done in just 1 hour. (Don't stir until it's done). This was so yummy and easy to make. I am a huge pumpkin fan, so I really loved it. I did double the pumpkin pie spice, to give it a little more flavor. When it was done, I used it to fill little mini pie crusts (that I had baked in a mini muffin pan) to make pumpkin tarts, and I topped them with fall sprinkles.

Chicken and Corn Chowder with Thyme

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
We really liked the flavor of this, but it was a bit runny. I added cornstarch (mixed into a little of the broth then stirred into the soup) during cooking, and then let it sit a little while after cooking, and that thickened it up a bit. I think adding a can of cream of mushroom soup might also help thicken it up and add some more flavor next time. I used whole milk instead of half and half because that's what I had. I also added about 2 cups of shredded cheddar at the end of cooking and we topped our bowls of soup with a little more cheddar.

Kellogg's® Chocolate Scotcheroos

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
This was just what I was looking for! However, I just omitted the butterscotch chips because I was really wanted just chocolate and peanut butter (my faves!). For the topping, I did 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chips and 1/2 cup peanut butter. Everyone loved them!

Owen's Mozzarella and Tomato Salad

Melanie's Beef Barley Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2007
Very good, although I did make quite a few changes. I added a can of diced tomaotes and 3 cups of tomato juice. I also left out the bag of frozen vegetables and instead put in 1 cup of corn and 1 cup of chopped zucchini. And I changed the chicken broth to beef broth. After all, it's beef soup, right?? Soooo hearty and good.

Chicken Caesar Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
We really loved this as a nice, fresh summer dish. My husband especially loved it. Just be sure to cool the chicken and pasta before tossing it all together.

Baked Rice and Vegetables in Broth

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
We didn't really care for this, and usually I love anything with rice. It turned out rather soggy and was pretty bland. I used rosemary, as another reviewer mentioned, and it was the only thing that really gave it any flavor.

Easy Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
This was really good. I added in some chopped onions and traded the broccoli for spinach. I also used 2 eggs and then egg whites in place of the other 2 eggs. My 4-year-old had 3 helpings, and that is very unlike her!

Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2007
A really good, quick, and easy meal. I just added a can of chopped green chiles and a handful of partially mashed blackbeans. I served them with tomato soup. The fam loved them.

Rice with Black Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2007
Hearty and delicious. Just needed a little tweaking - I used brown rice instead of white, minced garlic instead of powder, and added some chopped, cooked chicken and about a cup of mild salsa. Then I topped it with a garnish of shredded cheddar. It was very easy to make and so good - I'll definitely be making it again.

Pumpkin Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2007
I doubled the pumpkin because I really like pumpkin, but other than that this recipe is just perfect! What a delicious and different cozy comfort food. Perfect for warming up a cold evening!

Stuffed Pepper Soup II

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2007
Very yummy. I put in just a dash of cinnamon, and we really liked it. It gave it just the perfect little "something". My husband kept telling me how good it was and that it really tasted just like a stuffed pepper. It does!

Pumpkin Bread II

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2006
What a yummy fall recipe. I cut it in half to only make 1 loaf, and it turned out great. I substituted half of the oil with applesauce, half of the flour with whole-wheat flour, and sprinkled in some flaxseed. I also added in some chocolate chips. My family loves waking up to eat it for breakfast.

Dana's Tropical Fruit Smoothie

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2006
Yummy. I used an 8 ounce can of pineapple tidbits, since that's what I had, and it turned out just right. Any more and it would have been too pineappley. I also added a little honey. My 3-year-old thought it was a real treat.
