Beef and Bean Crescent Burritos

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
I love Pilsbury Crescent Rolls and I love burritos...just not together. This recipe isn't something my family cared for at all. The tecnical side of the recipe wasn't written very well either. It said to combine the cooked and drained meat, and the rinsed and drained beans with the taco seasoning mix and boil. There was nothing to boil... I did add a little bit of water so the taco seasoning would mix together with the meat and beans. Also, it was WAY too much work and use of the oven for the end result. I'd rather just put the mean/bean mixture in a tortilla, roll it up and eat it. I won't be making this again.

Bold Eagle Ranch Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
I'm not a pickle fan; especially DILL pickles. After the first bite which was on a cracker, I thought, YUKE! But, being a person who doesn't like to make snap judgements, I just put it in the fridge. I went to the store the next day and purchased some veggies. Pulled out the dip and snacked on the veggies while cooking dinner that night. Yow-za!!! Really Good! We couldn't stop eating it and ate it all gone. This recipe needs to sit overnight to meld the flavors. It's a zingy, strong full bodied dip and really good. 4 stars because of the initial taste factor.

White Bean, Tomato, and Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
I've been looking for recipes to use all the fresh tomatoes from my garden. We like bean salads and we LOVE avacadoes, so this looked like a winner. I made exactly per recipe directions. It was good, but it needs something. I think garlic or ??? I will make again, but I will most definately tweak.

Spaghetti Pie II

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
We really liked this easy, quick and INEXPENSIVE dish and I will definately make again. I used plain greek yogurt drained mixed with 1 beaten egg and 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning in place of the Cottage Cheese for Lactose Intolerance reasons (as suggested by my AR Buzz Buddies), but otherwise made following the directions. Also, I want to make note that I DID NOT increase any amounts and 3 adults ate it for two meals. One pound of hamburger for 6 adult servings? Now, that's eating on the cheap! A great bargin meal.

Onion & Garlic Biscuit Flat Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
Since I'm not a "from scratch" bread maker, I was so happy to see bellepepper's recipe for a quick and very tasty bread that would compliment any meal. My family LOVED those little bisquits. I can see a multitude of variations on this recipe too! Thank you bellepepper for sharing your creation with us. I'll be making again soon! 5 great BIG stars!!!!!

Mama's Tomato Gravy

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
This is really good. I didn't have any bacon fat, so I used butter. And, it was good; it was really good. I served over "leftover" meatloaf. I can see using this recipe in endless ways. It was very easy and I'll be making again for sure.

Book Club Blackberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2011
Living in the PNW, it was almost NOT possible for me to make this recipe with canned blackberries. Oregon is known for their Blackberries for "crying-out-loud!" I wanted to rate it fairly, so I did use canned. (can't believe I did that) Anyway, I really liked that the cobble had a bottom. That's something I will do from now on when baking ANY cobbler. Here's what I didn't like about this recipe. Shortening in the crust. Next time I make, I will use butter. The flavor was good, but I would have prefered to use fresh blackberries. It was really just "good," not great.

Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
I'm giving this recipe 5 stars for two reasons. A 5 for ease. And, a 5 for yummy-ness! After reading the reviews, I decided to use my electric skillet instead of trying to convert to the baking method. It worked wonderfully. I'm posting a picture of the cooking method, not the the finished product, because i think this is a recipe worth making and cooks should not pass on this recipe or be intimidated to try the ELECTRIC Skillet method. This Shortcake recipe is a WINNER!!! I've made it 3 times now and it has been eaten gone each time. I will NEVER buy those little grocery store shortcakes again!

Green Pozole

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2011
This was wonderful! I have some pretty fantastic posole soup makers in my family and this recipe could give them a run for their money. Very, very flavorful. I made it EXACTLY as the recipe instructed. Good & authentic tasting. This recipe has made it into the soup rotation file.

Beef Vindaloo

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
This is a hard recipe for me to review. I love to say only positive things… but, honestly I have issues with the terminology and quantities of certain ingredients. Recipe directions said to make a marinade of the yogurt, vinegar and spices. Then soak at least one hour or overnight. This was more of a “coating” rather than a marinade. My VERY limited exposure to cooking sent me to the dictionary after preparing this dish to research the meaning of “marinate” as it pertains to cooking. Marinate is “soaking or exposing a food item for a long period time, then removing.” The yogurt mixture is UNremovable, so I’m choosing to call it a “Yogurt Coating.” Also, it was so salty and hot, we could hardly eat it. Way beneath the salt and the heat, was a hint of what I think might be a great dish. Could the 2 tablespoons of salt be a typo? If you were truly MARINATING the meat, those quantities would be o.k. Not being able to remove the meat from the coating is, in my opinion, the downfall of this dish. When I make this again, and I will with a good tweaking, I’ll use maybe 1 or 2 teaspoons of salt, 1 teaspoon each of black pepper and cayenne or ancho chili pepper powder. The garlic and ginger paste is a combination I love, so I think there might be some hope for this Vindaloo!

Real Strawberry Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
These are moist and flavorful cupcakes. I'm giving a 4 star rating only because I like my cupcakes a little bit lighter. They're not muffins, but they are heavier than I like my cupcakes to be. Nonetheless, they're very flavorful and good.

Real Strawberry Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
Very Intense Strawberry Flavor without using artificial flavoring. Since I was looking for flavor, I actually didn't expect the consistency to be one that I could put in a pastry bag and pipe onto the cupcakes. But I thought, what the heck. I'll give it a try. And, guess what? It's perfect for piping!

Creamy Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly plus followed the suggestions JustMe wrote below. It turned out PERFECT!!! I love this recipe because it's like a whipped cream frosting, yet not too sweet. I used Lactose Free Milk, so for those of you with an intolerance, you must try it! I frosted 3 dozen cupcakes using the "Simple White Cake" recipe from this site. OH MY GOODNESS, are these CC good! I will most certainly make again. It's worth the time it takes to make.

Five Minute Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
This is a good way to make ice cream if you are LACTOSE intolerant. Yogurt does NOT contain Lactose. You can use any fruit and any flavor yogurt. It really is good. And, if you're weight conscious, this has far fewer calories.

KFC Coleslaw - Knock Off

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
I made this for our Memorial Day dinner. It was easy and YES, it did taste like the coleslaw from KFC. It's a spot-on Knock Off! Thank you Baking Nana for posting this most delicious recipe. It's a keeper! UPDATE: 3/7/2012 = This most wonderful KNOCK OFF recipe goes absolutely perfect with Sweet Pork Tacos. See Sweet Pork for Burritos recipe from this site to make the bestest tacos ever.

Oma's Rhubarb Cake

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
This is very good! I substitued 1 cup of plain greek yogurt for the sour cream due to intolerance. Moist with a cake texture! I just couldn't quit eating it. The first piece I ate right out of the oven, the second piece, I topped with vanilla yogurt, the 3rd piece I ate was warmend with a pat of butter on top. Easy to prepare too!

Box cake mix, minus the box

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
I made up this cake mix right after it was posted by RG to take with me to my daughter's house when we visited during Spring Break. We made every version of it there was. I failed to give it a review when we came home. So, here I am getting ready to make up another batch. It is a great and flexible "bulk" recipe and easy to make different flavors. Good, tasty and we all loved it. Thanks so much RG and please forgive my very tardy revie.

Warm Orange Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
Today I made an "Italian Easter Cake." The recipe calls for a light dusting of powdered sugar. I've been wanting to try Avon's "Warm Orange Sauce" and thought it would go well with this Orange flavored dump-and-mix cake. It was fantastic. These two recipes were meant for each other. It's not too sweet either. My husband and I both ate two BIG pieces and ALL the Orange Sauce. YUM!!!! Thanks Anne!
