Blueberry Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
I used 3 bananas and baked it in one large loaf pan for 65 minutes. Turned out wonderfully. I will definitely be baking this bread again.

Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2014
The best recipe I've tried for corned beef. The beer gives it a great added flavor. I used the meat for sandwiches and everyone loved it. This is now my go-to recipe for cooking corned beef.

French Toast Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
I've made this twice already and we love it. I followed the advice of some other reviewers and added cinnamon to the mixture. Also, before baking, I flipped it over in the pan so that the bottom didn't turn out soggy. It's a fun weekend breakfast staple for us now.

Chicken Tortilla Soup I

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
Made this last night and followed some suggestions from other reviews. You really can't go wrong with this recipe. Here are the changes I made. 64oz of chicken stock for the liquid, 28oz can of white hominy because that is what my store had, 2 cans of diced green chilies, 2 cans of corn and black beans, 1.5tsp cumin instead of oregano. After sauteing the onions and garlic I put everything into a large stock pot, brought it to a boil, then simmered for just over an hour. It was awesome! My 19yo son usually hates anything with chili powder and cumin and he asked me to put this in his college recipe binder so he can make it on his own.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: May 24, 2012
Made exactly as written (refrigerated for just 2 hrs) and it was wonderful! I did use wild salmon so the marinade tasted subtle on the bold flavorful filet. I imagine on farm raised salmon the marinade flavor may be a bit stronger. It was perfect for us though.

Fast Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
I made this tonight with some leftover cooked rice. My boyfriend and son loved it! I did follow the suggestion of using a tsp of cinnamon instead of a Tbs. Glad I did. A tsp was more than enough.

Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
Super fast and easy. Even my son said he'd love to have it for dinner again. I put a decent amount of parmigiano reggiano cheese on top when serving and the soup was a hit!

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
I absolutely love this recipe. Such a nice change from cream of mushroom soup types. The sour cream and onions give it a really great flavor. I make this for every holiday. I just add extra cheese on the top since we are big cheese lovers. Delicious!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
Wonderful basic and easy Sloppy Joe recipe. Doubled the recipe and made it for my family last week and they loved it! I can see us having this a couple of times a month.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2014
We loved this. The only thing I would do differently next time is to cook the peppers, mushrooms (used baby bellas) and onions at the same time the chicken goes into the pan because I prefer a softer texture to them. I did add some extra Cajun seasoning due to the other reviews but not enough to really say I made huge spice changes to the recipe. Also, I think the key to any good pasta recipe is buying the best pasta you can and not the box stuff from the grocery store. I'll be making this again.

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2014
We love this recipe and make it at least once a month. The only changes I make now is to use the rice cooker for the rice because I'm notorious for under cooking the rice, which is no fault of the recipe. Other than that I made it just as written. The other change is that I use three large green peppers instead of six since there are only three of us. Makes an entire meal!

Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2012
It wasn't bad but it wasn't good. I wouldn't make it again. It seemed pretty dry so I would definitely suggest adding more sauce.

Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
By far the best peanut butter fudge I've ever had. I gave it away in candy/cookie packages to friends and family this holiday season and everyone LOVED it. I will absolutely make this fudge every year.

Eggnog Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
I agree with some of the other reviewers, not the prettiest cookie.. but who cares, they taste amazing! I made several dozen as part of a holiday cookie collection for friends and family and these were a huge hit. I will make them every holiday season from now on.

Made exactly as written and they were the best chocolate cookies I've ever had. I baked 3 dozen and gave them to friends and family as part of a cookie collection for the holidays... and everyone loved these the most. They will be my go-to cookie from now on!

Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
I'd never had Shepherd's Pie before but gave this one a try. Easy and the family ate it up. I followed some suggestions and added half a chopped onion while browning the ground beef and put a tsp of Worchestire in as well.. then topped with cheddar cheese for the last 10 minutes. I will make this again.

Cajun Crab Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2014
Great soup base but not quite right for me and my family. I used a high end can of lump crab meat and canned crab seems too crabby/fishy tasting for this recipe in my opinion. A pound seemed like way too much. Fresh mild tasting crab would have been ideal but I wouldn't pay for fresh crab for this recipe. Next time I think I'll use this soup base (minus the green onions again) and add some potatoes and chopped clams instead of the crab. I'll give this one a few more tries with some changes and maybe a different brand of crab meat and see what happens.

My Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2014
Nice chili recipe. I made a few adjustments to suit our taste. Subbed 2 cans of Rotel tomatoes with green chilies for 2 cans of the stewed tomatoes, added an extra can of kidney beans, added an additional tablespoon of chili powder and also decided to throw in a 1 1/2 teaspoons of cumin because I LOVE cumin. Really good!

Chocolate Cream Pie II

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2014
Outstanding! I read a lot of the reviews and took the following advice... 4 egg yolks, 4 tablespoons of corn starch and replaced 1/4 C of the milk (I used 2C half-n-half and 3/4 C of 2% milk) with Baileys Irish Cream. The pie set up perfectly. I used an Oreo crust and made my own whipped cream. Taking the 10 minutes to do it is absolutely worth it. This was by far the most decadent, rich and amazing chocolate pie I have ever had. A small slice goes a long way!
