Paprika Chili Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
I was told this was delicious, juicy and tasty!

Imitation Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
I love all the ingredients separately, but apparently not together. Maybe it was just too much filler (bread crumbs, wheat germ?) and not enough good stuff? Plus, I followed directions exactly and it was still a soggy, hard-to-slice mess.

Delicious Raisin Nut Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
I was honestly surprised this tasted so awesome! I thought for sure I would see cereal flakes, but you would never know it's in there. I used Raisin Bran Crunch, but it seems like a perfect way to use up any cereal in your house. I also added a dash of cinnamon and a dash of cloves. Perfect with my morning cup of coffee!

Black Beans a la Olla

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
This was a great dish, but I wish I had let it simmer longer. If I made it again, I might even let it sit in the crock pot for a few hours on low. It was great over rice, spicy but the perfect amount. I also used it as a filling in burritoes with cheese.

Parmesan Potato Wedges

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
Since I was already baking chicken in the oven, I decided to bake these rather than risk soggy potatoes. I covered them and baked them for 30 minutes before uncovering them and baking them another 30 minutes. They were done, but not crispy. Next time I would not cover them at all, and maybe put them on a baking sheet instead of a pyrex. Good flavor, not gritty as some people have said, and these would be perfect dipped into a garlic sour cream dip. For some reason they didn't taste that good with ranch or ketchup.

Garlic Cheese Chicken Rollups

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
This was so easy to make, and was declared 12 out of 10 stars! I used cream cheese, mixed with fresh chopped garlic and dried chives instead of the cheese the recipe asked for. I cooked it for 50 minutes and it was done perfectly.

Chili Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
These burritos seemed dry inside and very dense and heavy. While the taste was okay, it seemed almost dry to me. If I make this again, I would rather do the potatoes differently. I think next time I would cut them into small pieces and bake them (covered) with the spices to cook them. Then I would put together the potatoes and cheese in the tortillas, but keep them on the smaller/lighter side. It also lends itself to adding other things, like beans, onions, olives, etc.

Spicy African Yam Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
I think I put too much peanut butter in, which ruined it for me. I doubled it, and wished I hadn't. If I try it again I think I'll keep PB the same, get hot salsa instead of medium or add some hot sauce to it!

Party Pinwheels

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
These are my favorite pinwheels, so addicting! Instead of using a Ranch packet, I use the same amount of seasonings used in the Ranch Dressing II from this site (just omit the mayo and sour cream).

Chocolate Surprise Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
I was surprised the batter didn't have any egg in it, I had to go through the ingredients twice because I thought I was forgetting something. This makes a lot of batter though, I had probably 30 cupcakes worth even after filling them almost full. It tasted great, just like a cupcake with cheesecake baked in it. So if you want something lighter or creamier, this recipe is not for you.

Lemon Horseradish New Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
I mixed all of the dressing in a bowl before I added the new potatoes, which I had quartered. I also added an extra tablespoon of horseradish. If I make this again, I'll decrease the amount of butter, I think it had a little too much.

Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
I too added the whole can of tomato sauce, but omitted the water. I ended up adding some more water when I reheated it the next day. Very good soup, would probably try again without the ham too!

Pollo (Chicken) Fricassee from Puerto Rico

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
I think this turned out pretty salty, and I only used half the salt. Next time if I make it again, I won't use any salt!

Korean BBQ Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
I marinated chicken drumsticks in this for 24 hours, then barbecued. I basted the chicken often with the leftover sauce which was simmering on the barbecue.

Korean Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
If I make this again, I'll use half the pepper. This wasn't very flavorful--just hot!

German Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
This sure yields a lot of pancakes--makes me wish I had used a bigger pan to go faster! These are great food a treat once in a while, otherwise they're a little to greasy for everyday dinner.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
This was a fantastic recipe! No one minded there was no meat in our meal. I substituted basil for the rosemary too. I also used more feta cheese in there too in each layer. Next time I'll add kalamata olives, I think that will make it even better! Because there's so much liquid, I didn't cook the noodles either, which makes it a one-pan meal! Update: Made this last night using hearts of palm instead of artichoke hearts, and goat cheese instead of feta. Best one I've made yet!

Garlic Bread Fantastique

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
I didn't think it was possible for four people to finish this off in one sitting, but we did! I doubled the garlic too, and I'm sorry I don't have any leftovers!

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
I liked the idea of this recipe because I could use the alfredo sauce in my pantry I was never going to eat, and because it didn't use mayonnaise! I added two extra cloves of garlic, and it was very good.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
My new favorite recipe! I made only 6 servings, and still had a lot of filling leftover. I'll use the leftover filling to make quesadillas or empanadas later this week. Next time I make this, I'll add cilantro too.
