Bubba's Jambalaya

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2014
Cooking for a family of 8, I am always grateful to find a recipe everyone likes. I make this recipe almost weekly and my husband down to my 2 year old rave about how much they enjoy it! Since we are on a strict budget, I often substitute pinto beans for the meat in this dish and somehow it always turns out very flavorful and satisfying after boiling the beans with the veggies and broth. When meat is plentiful, this dish is great as well. Love it!

Brown Family's Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
I had high hopes for this pie recipe going into Thanksgiving this year. I made recipe exactly as stated but without much success on the "dessert table" end. I brought this recipe to 2 different Thanksgiving meals, labeled it "pumpkin pie" and hardly any of my family touched it. (BTW, my pumpkin pies were the ONLY pumpkin pies represented at both parties.) Out of 2 pies, I came back home with 3/4 of the pie leftover. I asked my people why I didn't succeed with such a promising, exciting recipe, and the one who did try it said, "It was good, but it didn't taste like pumpkin pie." The others said they wanted "straight up pumpkin pie without all the stuff on top." I am posting this review as a warning to all who may be tempted to try this recipe out for the "stand in" pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving: It is a good pie, BUT--it may be the pumpkin pie for people who don't really like pumpkin pie. My family, who are true pumpkin pie lovers, just wanted traditional pumpkin. I will not attempt this recipe again and will keep searching for a more traditional recipe.

Nikol's Garlic Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2011
This was delish! I made one change: I was low on tomatoes so I marinated some diced summer squash along with the tomatoes. (The yellow squash was very beautiful with the red tomatoes and green basil.) Whole family loved it--will make again!

RWOP Finalist: Swiss Chard au Gratin

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2011
I grew a bumper crop of swiss chard in my garden this spring and was hoping to find some good recipes to use it--I will keep looking. The final recipe tasted like cheese atop canned spinach. The chard turned wilted and soggy after pan-frying and baking. We ate it, but we were not excited about it. We will not be making again.
