SARA LEE® Egg in a Boat

Reviewed: May 24, 2012
This was great for the kids! Even my picky 2 year old enjoyed this and she normally doesn't like eggs; she gobbled it right up! My 5 yearold asked me for seconds and if I could make this for breakfast EVERY day lol. :D

Campbell's Kitchen Tomato-Basil Chicken

Reviewed: May 24, 2012
For a fast, cheap, dinner, this has pretty good potential. It definately needs some jazzing up as the other reviews have stated, but for a busy night, you can't really beat this.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: May 18, 2012
Excellent! One bite will get your taste buds dancing a happy little jig. My husband (who got worn out on potato soup when we were first married because it was one of the only things I knew how to make) LOVED it! His exact word was 'delicious!' and 'you WILL make this again!' Pat myself on the back for finding a potato soup that has him so enthusiastic hehe :D Even my kids, ALL of them, enjoyed this fabulous soup. The only thing I though was a little too much was this saltiness factor. (I'm not a big fan of salt) But on the same note, it's nothing a little extra milk in my bowl can't fix. So all I can say is two thumb way up! Thanks for the great recipe!!

Country Green Beans

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
This was interesting. My husband and I were amazed at how much the greanbeans changed the flavor of the ham. (not that that is a bad thing) We weren't sure exactly what to make of this. The flavors were pretty good, however, what we had for dinner apparently did not blend well with the country flare. So next time I make this, I think I'll make it with some fried chicken and mashed potatoes. ;)

Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Gravy

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
This was very good and pretty easy too. I was surprised that (besides my 2 year old) everyone liked this, including my two boys. The chops alone were very tasty and juicy to boot. But the sauce, the sauce was just awesome. I'll admit, I was expecting the flavor to be a lot stronger, and sharp, but was surprised that it was perfectly balanced with just the right amount of blue cheese flavor. It was delicious! None of my kids liked the sauce, but that's alright, more for hubby and me. ;)

Cream of Coconut Cake

Reviewed: May 16, 2012
I made the cake last night and put it in the fridge over night to cool it off. But I also made three cupcakes with the leftover batter which were nummy! The frosting was also delicious and very creamy! I added a pinch of lime juice to the mixture to give it a little zing and I think it made it even better. I havent' actually tried the two together yet (waiting for dinner tonight) but separately they are equally delicious so I know together they are going to be fantastic! Thanks for the great recipe and my second successful cake! :D

Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
We were a little disappointed in this. I thought it was WAY too salty. Sadly, I didn't read any reviews before I made this and so added the entire amount of butter (which like everyone else says, is not a good idea) I agree with other reviewers too, that the warm ranch made the recipe taste a bit weird. In addition to the chili powder, butter, pepper and salt, I also added some chopped onion, onion powder, and garlic powder. I added both motz, and sharp cheddar on top. Like I said, with the combo of all the ingrediants, it was very salty. All three of my kids didn't like this at all and asked me not to make it a second time.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
All of this thought that this was pretty tasty. The only one who didn't really care for itwas my two year old daughter and it's not very easy to please her anyway. I didnt' have bread crumbs, so I used flour instead. I doubt that it made much difference. Thanks for the yummy recipe :).

Coconut Lime Rice

Reviewed: May 11, 2012
My husband and I couldn't decide if we liked this or not at first. The flavor was very mild and the coconut over powered and hid the lime flavoring almost comletely. After two helpings, we finally decided that the taste was not for us, which is sad because with both love both lime and coconut, apparently just not like this. :(

Chicken Paprikash II

Reviewed: May 10, 2012
This was fantastic! I'd never had anything Hungarian before though I have heard through a Hungarian friend of mine that there are many dishes that are delicious and unique. Chicken Papkrikash was one of the dishes she'd mentioned. So when I came across this recipe, I was utterly delighted. It was every bit as good as she had stated. I loved the thick tomato, sour cream and paprika flavor. So rich and creamy! And I absolutely loved the zing that the red pepper gave it. Soo good! I followed some of the directions the other reviewers gave and added chicken broth instead of water which I think gave it extra flavor then it would have had I used just water. I also poured it over egg noodles. Yummy!! :) The only reason I'm giving this just four stars and not five is because my five year old thought it was a bit too spicy, (he doesn't even like pepper though) and my 2 year old took one bit and instantly stuck up her nose at it saying 'I no like it mommy...' (Sigh...she's soo picky -_-') Oh well, there loss hehe ;). Too bad for them, I'm definately adding this recipe to my list of keepers! Thanks so much!

Tomato Cakes

Reviewed: May 9, 2012
The flavor was okay. It could definately using some spicing up. My kids didn't like this at all, though I was rather proud that my 5 year old choked it down. My 2 year old daughter snubbed them immediately and my 6 year old took one bit and made a rather unpleasent face. (He doesn't like tomatoes anyway) I myself, thought that the consistancy of the mixture was blah...It turned out mushy not crispy and I had my pan super heated. I might be able to get past the somewhat bland taste by adding some of the ingrediants other reviews have added, but I couldn't handle the texture at all. I ended up throwing the rest of the batch out. I may or may not try this again, but if I do, I think I will definately add other ingrediants and an egg; maybe that will help.

Beer Batter Fish Fillets

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
This was pretty good. My husband added some creole seasoning for an extra zing and made a quick lemon butter sauce to go with it. (I highly recommend this fish with the sauce. It's crazy delicious! ;)

Tex-Mex Green Bean Salad

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
This was really yummy. I loved the contrast of the lemon juice, olive oil and cumin together. They blended very well together. Though my two boys (5 & 6) didn't care for this, my 2 year old daughter loved it, and my husband, who is pretty picky when it comes to how he'll eat greenbeans, liked this too. Thanks for the unique twist on a classic family veggie!

Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
This was very good!! (and according to my husband, very VERY good. In fact after he finished his first helping he begged me to make another batch) I didn't have any bread crumbs so I used flour and seasoned it with creole, italian seasoning, garlic powder, and a pinch of cayenne. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out delicious!! Thanks for the wonderful recipe! :)

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2012
This was simply delicious! And it was soo quick. Quick, easy and hearty is a very good thing around my house. This is the second time I've made this and it went over just as well as the first time which is very hard to achieve with my kids. Typically, at least one of them doesn't like whatever recipe I'm making that night. But with this, it's a win win ALL the way around. I just know this is going to turn into a family favorite! :D

Watergate Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
I was happy that this turned out pretty well. (for me that's saying something since I can't seem to cook dessert to save my life, including boxed) I followed the recipe to a tee, adding the coconut into the mix since my family all LOVE the stuff..(num) The only ingrediant I didn't have was the veggie oil which I subbed for canola. It left a slight after taste that wasn't entirely pleasent in the uncooked batter and I was pretty worried. Fortunately, in the finished product, the aftertaste was barely noticable. For the topping I added two drops of green food coloring just to give it that added springy look to it and sprinkled more coconut across the top. For the most part, I was really pleased with the results. The reason I'm giving it three stars, is because for some reason the cake solidified fine in the oven with the exception to one of the sides, which bubbled over the rim. I have NO idea why it did this, it could just be my oven, however, I had too work around the mess it created and also cook the cake 10 minutes longer then the recipe called for because it was no where near done at that point. So, the end result was that a small portion of the cake was harder along the rim while the rest of it turned out great. But that's okay, I'm just glad it's edible at all. :) Anyway, it's very sweet and my husband likes this very much so thank you for the recipe.

Pasta Pomodoro

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
Not Bad, not bad at all. I discovered I didn't have angel hair so I used macaroni noodles instead. It turned out pretty well though. In addition to the parm, I also added some shredded motz which gave it a little more of a cheesy texture, and I absolutely loved the blend of the balsamic and tomatoes so I added a dash more vinegar. Delicious! Even If my kids didn't really care for this, both my husband and myself enjoyed it tremendously. The only thing I think I'll change, is next time, I'll take DEBNJAMES' advice and add some chicken to the mix, yum! :)

Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2012
This was pretty good! It was also my first successful pie, yay me! My husband is an avid lover of cherries, but alas, unless they are cooked, he's very alergic to them. So, when I found this recipe, he insisted that I make it. I just gave him a skeptical look given my unfortunate lack of success in making any kind of dessert, no matter how easy it is. (when I say lack of success, I mean unedible) Still, I wanted to give it a shot all the same. I was VERY surprised (and utterly delighted) when it turned out, not only tasty, but presentable as well. Talk about a boost to cooking self-esteam. Thanks for the great recipe!! :D
