Corn with a Kick

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2012
This was very yummy. Everyone in my family liked this pretty well, including my 6 year old who hates corn, and my two year old who is VERY picky when it comes to what she will and will not eat. Instead of chopping a tomato, I added half a can of rotel's diced tomatoes and green chilies. I also omitted the cayenne and green pepper. I will definately be adding this to my list of ways to make veggies for my kiddos...score!! ;D

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!!

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2012
This was very good!! I did made a few modifications. I didn't have corn so I omitted and subbed a can of diced tomatoes for one of the cans of chicken broths and added an 8oz can of green chilies. In addition to the chicken, I also added a left over pork chop that needed to be used up and I thought that it gave the soup an extra flavor. Lastly I subbed lime juice for the lemon and added an extra two teaspoons. It turned out absolutely delicious and I'll definately be adding this to my five star recipe box.

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

Cranberry Brisket

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2012
This was simply fabulous! When I first saw this recipe, I was really skeptical at first because of the combination of ingredients together and I was worried that it would turn out too sweet as my husband and I don't really like sweeter dishes. However, as a newer cook, I've been trying to broaden our horizons (and palettes) and seeing as how the recipe contained all things we like on a normal basis, I decided to take a leap of faith. (The four and a half stars might have contributed to the equation as well ;) ) WOW!!! Like I said before, flipping amazing. I changed absolutely nothing on this recipe, with exception to using frozen cranberries and not fresh because my local grocers didn't carry them. It's hard to imagine that the frozen cranberries made a single bit of difference in the over all flavor of the roast, it was really just that good. The flavors blended perfectly and it was not a sweet roast at all. It was so tender that fell apart with a fork; we didn't even need steak knives. All around, beyond and above, excellent recipe and I am soo glad that I decided to take a chance on it. I will most certainly be making this again!!

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
These were delicious! I had the hankering for something sweet but 'healthy' so I set to work finding a good oatmeal cookie recipe. This was easy and packed full of flavor. I cut the recipe down to a dozen which lasted all of two hours in my house before my husband my kids and I had gobbled down the entire batch. Then of course is the question, 'So mom, are you going to make any more?' haha ;) Awesome cookies! Thanks for the recipe.

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

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!

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. ;)

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

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 :).

Baked Chicken Broccoli and Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2012
This was very yummy and my kids absolutely raved about it! I added a can of cream of chicken soup, a cup and a half of chicken broth instead of water then about 3tbsp of real butter and 3tbsp of cream cheese. On the chicken, I put paprika, cayenne, onion powder and lime powder. I sprinkled some shredded cheddar over the top and baked for about an hour to get the rice and chicken completely done. Instead of broccoli, we had creamed spinach on the side. It turned out very creamy and very tasty. Kudos to Campbell's Kitchen for the good base recipe ;)

Baked Pork Chops II

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2012
Nice and quick. I didn't have dry mustard so I subbed for dijon, which turned out pretty good. I added diced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce and light brown sugar since I didn't have dark. All of us liked this pretty well, but agreed that it wasn't special per say, but tasty none the less.

Key West Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2012
This was pretty good, though we thought that the soy sauce completely over shadowed the lime flavor. My husband said that he thought it tasted more like terriyaki. Next time, I'll add more lime to the mix and maybe just a touch more honey. All and all, it was tasty and went over well with my family.

Johnny Marzzetti with Ground Venison

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2012
Pretty tasty and hearty meal. My kids thought this was really good (though it's pretty hard to go wrong when you've got lots off cheese, noodles, hamburger with kids involved hehe ;) I used ground beef instead of venison, which is not readily avalible where I live. I took the advice of some of the other reviewers and seasoned my meat first. I used little shells instead of elbow noodles, and omitted the bell pepper since my kids don't care for the taste. All in all, this turned out great and baked very well. The best part: it's super easy!
