Classic Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
Wow. Just wow. I am truly amazed that I can make such a delicious, rich, satisfying homemade soup in less than 2 hours. I omitted the peas, kept the noodles seperate & only used about 1/3 cup parsley. Otherwise followed directions as written. BIG hit with the kids, husband, everyone! Thank you!

Turkey Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
Wow! This was way better than I thought it would be! It sounds bland but everyone loved it & it was devoured by my picky family. I used broccoli instead of green beans & added a can of mushrooms. Also I did not add the cubed cheese but layered extra grated cheese over the onions. No additional spices, however I did have very good homemade garlicky mashed potatoes so that might have made the difference.

Lasagna Toss

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
Very good! I had a craving for lasagna but wanted something quicker. This fit the bill. Kids loved it. I used one box of penne pasta and a jar and a half of pasta sauce. Made great leftovers and it was very easy to make!

Green Shell Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
Just made this for a neighbor potluck dinner and it was good! Something a little different, had sort of a creamy pesto flavor. I used sour cream instead of yogurt, added extra garlic and added a little fresh oregano along with the fresh basil from the garden. I tasted it before adding the parmesan, and I thought it could use the flavor kick (plus I love parmesan cheese), and it definitely added flavor (freshly grated of course).

Corn Dip II

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
This was a big hit at my get together! It was very hearty. I added a little more lime and cayenne, and used regular corn. Next time I would use finely shredded cheese. EDIT: I have made this many times, and you MUST use the Mexicorn or at least add a can of chopped green chilies. It definitely makes it tastier. I use finely shredded cheese, usually sharp cheddar and Monterey Jack. ALWAYS a hit!

Fried Rice Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
Great texture! I toasted the rice in a dry pan for 5 minutes, cooked then cooled on a large cookie sheet. Followed the recipe except used double the eggs and used chopped cooked pork, red pepper and green onion instead.

Best Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
Everyone in my family that likes this kind of dish loved it. It's not for everyone. I used 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup and 1 can of cheddar cheese soup. Instead of the peas, I added 1 can of artichoke hearts that I quartered.

Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
Absolutely delicious! Makes a lot of sauce. I used 3 cups PACKED basil leaves and didn't change the other proportions at all and it came out perfect. Definitely toast the nuts. This is a great recipe!

Really Creamy Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
This is the easiest Alfredo recipe I have tried and it is delicious! I added another 1/2 c milk and it was plenty of sauce for a pound of fettuccine! Next time we will add chicken, maybe mushrooms, then try bacon...the possibilities are endless!

Faux Jerk Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2008
Interesting flavor! Brought it to a neighbor's cookout and everyone loved it, even the teenagers. I left out the chili pepper and I think next time I will be sure to include it - it wasn't spicy at all.

Mama's Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
This was okay. It was easy to make and used ingredients I had on hand. But it lacked flavor and has too much mustard in it.

Greek Spaghetti II

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
This was okay but it needed something to give it some more flavor. I only used 3/4 cup of cheese and fresh oregano, which I htink made a big difference. I will make it again, however I will add some garlic to the butter like someone else suggested. It was a fine side dish for our pork roast.

Cowboy Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
Hearty & delicious! I took other reviewers advice and baked in the oven til the biscuits were brown, about 20 minutes. Topped with grated cheddar and sour cream, it turned out great! I also added some chipotle seasoning for a kick. Can't wait to go camping so we can try this recipe outdoors!

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
EXCELLENT! It is thick, but that's how we like it. I added about half the dill called for in the recipe. Won't be buying premade ranch dressing again!

I used 1.5 lbs frozen chicken tenderloins, one box crushed stuffing mixed with 1 stick of butter, and sprinkled chopped onions over. Baked covered with foil for 40 min, then uncovered another 10. DELICIOUS!

Blackened Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2006
Very very good! We thought it was the perfect degree of spicy. Even the kids loved it - I lightly seasoned theirs however.

Oregon Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2006
Good flavor! I followed other poster's advice to use no liquid from the salmon. Instead, I added 2 tbsp of lemon juice. I also used Old Bay seasoning & garlic instead of the seasoning indicated in the recipe. Chilling the patties for a half hour helped prevent them from falling apart, but they were still a little crumbly. I fried them in the same pan I had sauteed the onions in for extra flavor. I would make these again!
