7-Up® Biscuits

Reviewed: May 23, 2013
Liked it better with 1/2 cup of 7-UP, and putting the melted butter in the pan not in the mix as others suggested. I also cut the sour cream into the Bisquick with a knife (as for scones or pastry crust), then added the 7-UP - it is really sticky wet dough,so you need extra bisquick on your surface to aide in patting the dough into a 9 "circle. I used a small juice glass to cut them out and got 9 biscuits. Hubby likes them too. Good with jelly or fried ham, and tonight I am making chili to eat with the 6 leftover :)

Tuscan Soup

Reviewed: May 8, 2013
I use red new or baby potatoes, scrubbed well with peelings left on sliced not cubed, and half and half not evaporated milk. Need to use SPICY Italian sausage and crumble it for best flavor in this soup. One could use Kale or Spinach.

Quick Chick

Reviewed: May 7, 2013
This recipe needs spice changes to meet our taste. Chicken, celery, onion and soy sauce are a good start, but we prefer to use sesame oil, water chestnuts not mushrooms, and some chicken broth not water, 1/4 tsp. garlic powder and pinch of Chinese 5 spice then tighten the sauce up with a Tb. or less of cornstarch. Serve on cooked rice, pass the soy sauce, and top with crunchy Chinese noodles.

Chef John's Sausage & Shrimp Jambalaya

Reviewed: May 4, 2013
If you like HOT food you might LOVE this as written, but it was WAY too spicy-hot for us and I only used 1/4 tsp of cayenne and smoked sausage, not hot andouille. I added a squirt of tomato paste from a tube and a minced clove of garlic and it added that "something" I felt the flavor was lacking. My rice got too well done, I think it would be better to cook it seperately and add at the end or something..

Quick and Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: May 1, 2013
Nice recipe as most of us have the ingredients on hand, or if you don't have noodles use macaroni, no cream of mushroom soup?.. you can use celery or chicken, if you dont have frozen peas you can use drained canned peas or leave them out, no American processed cheese substitute shredded cheddar or omit, no fresh onion use dried minced or powdered onion.

Pan Cream Puff

Reviewed: May 1, 2013
So much easier than making individual cream puffs. Good to take to a large gathering-hard to keep leftovers from getting soggy.

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: May 1, 2013
Easy and quick! Follow the recipe as written and it won't fail. I adjusted the recipe to make 6 muffins and used 1 whole small egg (even though the adjusted recipe called for 1/2 of an egg)! it worked just fine with the whole egg. One could add 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts, and sprinkle with some sanding sugar (which I did) or whatever else you like, but when you add other things you are not really making THIS recipe.

Super-Simple, Super-Spicy Mongolian Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2013
Made it exactly as written but went really easy on the chili. Too salty and garlicky for me and seemed like it needed something but we couldn't figure out what. Served it on rice (with NO salt added) which made it too bland. I threw some sauted celery and sliced fresh broccoli in to the mix after the meat was cooked along with the green onion, the sauce was watery so I thickened with 1 Tb cornstarch and 1/8 cup water and cooked til thickened a little. Served with crunchy noodles on top and fresh sliced tomatoes and fruit to cut the salty/spicey on the tongue.

Corned Beef Hash

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2013
I don't add any broth, I sauté onion in some oil and add cubed potatoes that have been boiled in the skins and peeled, salt and pepper to taste, then add crumbled canned corned beef and heat through. This is an old school recipe from the WW II era when meat was rationed, and you could fill up a family cheaply. Mother would add a fried egg and some canned green beans to round out our dinner - and pass the ketchup - if we had it!

Campbell's Kitchen Tuna Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2013
Oldie but a goodie! Fine as is! Add black pepper, or seasonings you like! Easy to adapt to what you have on hand or your taste. I often use ONE can of tuna (my mother used to stretch a can of tuna this way).I have used cream of celery, mushroom OR chicken soup, shell or elbow macaroni instead of noodles, and added one or more of the following if I have it on hand to add flavor/variety - a Tb. of dried minced onion or 1/4 tsp. onion powder, a little dry dill weed, dry parsley, a cup of shredded cheddar cheese, and topped with crushed potato chips - good way to use up the end of the bag!

Taco in a Bag

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2013
Fun! Fun! Fun! I use low sodium taco seasoning because the chips etc. add up to a lot saltiness. Serve with icy cold beverages to quench thirst! So easy to adapt the idea many ways for cost effectivness for church youth group etc. by using cheaper corn chips and paper plates for example but the fun is in using corn chips in a bag and dumping whatever you like in the bag! :)

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2013
This is meant to be a different apple pie, a caramel-apple apple pie; so make it as the recipe reads if you want to make THIS pie - otherwise use another recipe that calls for cinnamon, nutmeg and no lattice. Put a large baking sheet or piece of aluminum foil under the pie to avoid any boil-overs in your oven!

Easy Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2013
Easy and Good! This is a plain downhome dessert and with a scoop of vanilla ice cream it is yummy! I made this with a 21 oz. can of cherry pie filling and accidentally only put in 1 tsp of baking powder, but it seemed to turn out fine. (I also put a little vanilla in the batter and sprinkled the top with some sanding sugar about 10 minutes before taking it out of the oven just for fun and a little sugary crunch).

Microwave Popcorn

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2013
Cool! 4 stars due to directions only. You probably need to experiment with amounts and time and bags to see what works best in your microwave and WATCH it as it is popping!! I made it as written, but had to stop my microwave at 2.20 minutes because the Orville Redenbacher corn popped up so big and fluffy it filled my brown paper lunchbag so full it about fell over and some of the popcorn was really jammed in the bottom of the bag. It is kind of dry and tasteless as written but we poured melted butter over it in the bowl and salted to taste.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
Tried this recipe and the Baked Salmon Dijon with just Dijon and breadcrumbs and preferred the less sweet no pecan recipe, but this is very good and some people who like a little sweet with their salmon would really like this I am sure. It is easy, good and fancy looking.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2013
Easy and Delicious! I made the BARS option and followed recipe EXACTLY as written. I used REAL butter, pressed the dough into an ungreased 9x13 pan and baked for 35 min. at 375. They were perfect, thick bars chock full of nuts and chocolate. Three of us practically ate half a pan in a day! I already shared it with friends and relatives and plan to use it a lot!! Be sure to use quick cooking oatmeal NOT instant, maybe that is why some people had problems.
