Cornbread that is a Meal

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
We thought this was a very comforting and filling meal! I omitted the pickled jalapeno and added a can of drained diced tomatoes with green chilies, plus I used a cup of cheddar in the corn bread mixture and sprinkled with an additional cup over the top. Like others said, this definitely needs to cook about 45-50 minutes or it will be raw inside.

Tomato and Mozzarella Bites

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
I think this is a great recipe but my guests were unimpressed. They really didn't seem to care for the fresh basil.

Blue Cheese, Sweet Pecan, and Cranberry Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
I'm sorry, we just didn't care for this. I used craisins and toasted, chopped pecans so the color was fine but the flavors just didn't seem to meld. We love this combination in a salad form so I had high hopes. I also added a bit of heavy cream to make this creamier/easier to spread and to dilute the strong blue cheese tang but it didn't seem to help. Thanks anyway.

Marshmallow Treats

Can't go wrong with a classic! Love these, and they're not really all that naughty either.

Baby Blue Punch

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
I'm not much of a punch person but this was really tasty and very cute! I served it for my son's first birthday party with a pond theme of frogs and rubber ducks. I subbed white grape juice for the white cranberry. Everyone raved and it disappeared!

Dirty Diapers

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
This was such a cute appetizer for my son's first birthday party! And it was simple and tasty also. I used a pound of ground beef with about 4 ounces of shredded cheddar and a packet of onion soup mix (no pickle). I had enough filling for 2 cans of crescent roll dough, though. Everyone loved it and they were scarfed down quickly. Thanks for the post!

Mini Tacos

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
I made these using Tostito's Scoops. They were good but somewhat labor-intensive for such a casual snack. Sour cream is a must for these!

Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
This was a super side dish and the leftovers were great to take for lunch at work! Really simple to make, just a bit time-consuming. I used only 2 tablespoons of butter and melted it per previous reviewer's advice, plus I reduced the chili powder to only about 1 teaspoon. So good!!!! Thanks for the recipe!

White Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
YUMMY! These were the simplest thing to make and taste so good! I used 1/2 cup of milk, according to previous reviewer's advice. I don't think these are meant to be fluffy - they're more of a gooey bar with a crunchy edge. Thanks so much for this recipe!

Garlic Chicken with Orzo Noodles

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
This was really quick and tasted good. We're not huge fans of heat though, so I'll reduce the amount of red pepper flakes next time. I prepared the orzo with a can of chicken broth and a can of FF cream of celery soup to add some creaminess. Good weeknight meal!

Toasted Butter Pecan Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
I really wanted to like this cake but we just weren't impressed. The cake turned out dry (did I overmix or overbake?) and the icing was too sweet for our taste. Worth a shot, though.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
We seem to be in the minority, but we didn't really care fot this. I felt the pork was very tender but bland. I added carrots and potatoes per another reviewer's recommendation.

Creamy Roasted Vegetable Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
I used about another teaspoon of dijon, subbed red pepper for green pepper and doubled the mayo and parmesan. For us, this just didn't work. The onion needed to be cooked more so it would mellow, and I think it should have been a red onion. Didn't have a lot of flavor - we probably won't be having again.

Sesame Chicken Strips with Sweet Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
This was OK. Was a bit of a pain to make though and it wasn't super-impressive so I don't know if we'll have again. We used panko bread crumbs instead of cracker crumbs and added some dijon to the sauce. We cut the chicken into nuggets instead of strips and they still took longer to bake.

Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
I'm not sure why, but we really didn't care for this. I like all of the ingredients that go in it but it seemed very dry to me. Was worth a try, though!

PHILLY Bacon and Tomato Presto Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
This was quick and easy. I thought it was just OK but DH loved it so we gave it 4 stars. I used chopped plum tomatoes, lite chive and onion cream cheese and only 8 oz. of dry penne. Good weeknight meal.

Snickerdoodle Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
This was a simple recipe with delicious results. I took PP's advice and used butter instead of shortening, added a teaspoon of vanilla and cinnamon to the batter, created a layer of cinnamon sugar halfway through cake and drizzled with a half cup of melted butter. Yum!

Southwest Pasta Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
I can't put my finger on it, but we just really didn't care for this. We like everything that goes into it but the finished product didn't impress. Was very filling though.

Pepperoni Cheese Balls

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
This was good! It tastes a lot like another pepperoni dip I make from this site that uses cream of mushroom soup and is heated up. My DH made this for his poker buddies and just served it in a bowl but I'm definitely going to try forming these into bite-sized balls. I think the mild creaminess is a good accent to the spiciness of the pepperoni!

Cream Cheese Cookie Cups

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
Like other posters, we doubled the cream cheese filling so we could use the entire amount of cookie dough and added mini chocolate chips. I want to try this with cocoa added to the cream cheese mixture also, that sounds good. Very rich but they were well received by our guests.
