Momma's Wine Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2013
I love the way the wine makes the cake taste. I feel that it also makes it lighter. I like to use this for cakes even if it's not a bundt.

Red Potato Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2013
One of my favorite potato salads to make! I just wish more people liked this salad as much as I do. I like to add a bit more cheese and a bit more bacon. Yum!

Almond Sandies

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2013
These are some of the best cookies I have ever made. I really like the way they turned out even though I don't really care for almond extract because to me it's got a really fake taste. I do use the almond extract but I also throw in about 1/2 tsp. of vanilla extract. Totally yummy...and HIGHLY addicting!

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2013
This is my go to sloppy joe recipe. I don’t eat sloppy joes but my kids love them. I scale it to where I use 1.5 to 2 lbs. of meat, usually ground turkey. When I brown the meat, I add about half an onion (chopped) and omit the onion powder. I also add a few garlic cloves and omit the garlic powder, but I do use either garlic salt or seasoned salt, which ever I have on hand. I like to throw in a smidge of bbq sauce too.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2013
My kids liked this, so that makes this a winner. I didn't try it when I made it but they seemed to really like it and if it's healthy and they like it, then I have to agree :).

Holiday Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2013
I love this recipe! I usually use left over Costco Rotissire Chicken. And I do make a few changes. I omit the bell pepper (don’t feel that it goes with this recipe), I only use half the cranberries and add between ½ cup and ¾ cup green apple, and as far as the pecans go, if I have them, I add them, but I have also used sliced almonds as well as walnuts. Oh and if I have any sometimes I add about half cup sliced grapes. I love it and my kids love it.

Quinoa with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2013
Only one word to add: delicious!! Cut the calories by not using butter and just cooked the quinoa like the package suggests. Also only used about 1tsp. of oil vs. 1 tbsp.

Aloha Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
I am just giving this a four star because I felt that it needed some seasoning, other than that, it was a great recipe! I cut my chicken into smaller pieces instead. For the dredging, I mixed 1 cup of flour, about 2 tablespoons seasoning salt, 1 tsp. paprika and some black pepper. I also used peanut oil instead to fry the chicken so that the oil didn't burn. To the sauce, I did as other reviewers suggested and added red pepper & also added about 2 tablespoons of soy sauce cause I felt like this recipe had too much sweet in it. I think next time I will try making the chicken grilled instead of fried. It was really good, but like I said, it needed spice! I will definitely make this again. Thanks for the recipe Jenny!!

Mushroom Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
I have tried this a couple of different ways. First I increased the serving size to 6, used a can of cream of mushrooms in place of the canned mushrooms, reduced the water to 6 oz., which came out pretty good. The second time, I made it with the mushrooms, it came out okay. The third time I made it using fresh mushrooms and cream of mushroom soup, again reducing the water and used wild rice - increasing the cooking time to 45 mins., instead of 20. That was our favorite! I will definately make this over and over. Thank you Anita!

Skillet Beef and Macaroni

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
This dish is a great starter with many possabilities. We made too much and had left overs which we added spagetti sauce too, very yummy. Hubby and I had a lot of good ideas for this plate, so no doubt we will be using this recipe for a long time to come.

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
This has become a family favorite in our house. When I make this, I double the rice, I use about 1 1/4- 1 1/2 lb. ground turkey, I add oregano to the turkey just as its done browning, and after I mix the meat and rice together, I let it cool a little and then add about 1/2 - 3/4 cup cheese to the mix, and also add the cheese on top. Everyone loves it. I used to blanche the peppers, but since only a few of us in the house actually eat the pepper, I don't take the time to do that anymore. I think it tastes good either way. Great recipe!!!

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
This is a great recipe! I have made it time and time again. I always add at least 3-4 cloves of garlic and fresh ground pepper. I serve it with grilled chicken, it is delicious! I would say its probably better than Olive Gardens sauce!!!

Easy Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
This has become one of our family favorites! The first time I made it however, I didn't have any chili beans on hand so instead I used one can of black beans and one can of kidney beans, and I have been making it like that ever since. I also made the following changes: I browned the meat in taco seasoning (no water, just the mix), Instead of 2 full cups salsa, I just added 1 jar Pace Picante Sauce, I put one layer of chips at the bottom of the pan, then added the mix & sour cream and on top of that I added crumbled up chips and cheese, covered baked, and then added the onions, tomatoes and olives (and a little more sour cream to those who wanted it), when I served it. We probably have this dish once a month now! Tyvm for the recipe, we love it!!

Hot Cocoa Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
I have to agree with some of the other reviewers, this is a good starter mix, but I feel that it could use some doctoring up. I messed up the first time I made a half batch and added just a little more cayenne pepper than I intended to add (an 1/8 tsp. should do btw), so I had to make another half batch to compensate. It s much better now. I also added 1 tsp. salt to the full batch to balance it all out. Also like some of the other reviewers, I cut the milk back by about 3/4 and added creamer to compensate. Very creamy thats for sure! I'm actually drinking it with water vs. milk, which is my prefered way to make hot cocoa and its pretty good!

Kim's Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2007
Wow! Let me start off by saying that I didn't have all the ingredients called for so I had to do some substitutions. Instead of Cider Vinegar I used 1/2 Red Wine Vinegar & 1/2 Balsamic Vinegar. I also didn't have Jalapenos, plus I had to feed this to my kids so I used Yellow Peppers instead, which are much more mild. I also didn't add all of the mayo cause I ran out, but it was only like 3 tablespoons short, which turned out perfect. Once I was done putting it together, I decided to add a little handful of cilantro since it seemed like a good match. [Great choice by the way!] This Mac Salad was OUTSTANDING. I really, really liked it & I am NOT typically a Mac Salad fan. I will definately make this again. Infact, I can't wait to make it for my family who loves spicy stuff. Thanks for the recipe!!
