True Blue Custard Crunch Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2011
This was an awesome pie. It's a lot quicker to get in the oven than a traditional blueberry pie and only dirties a mixing bowl, so I doubt I'll even go the boil-with-cornstarch route anymore. It's so creamy and refreshing with the dairy, and the fresh blueberry taste comes through perfectly. I'll probably try with other fruit too. For my preference I'll use brown sugar in the topping but that's all I would change, thank you so much for sharing.

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2011
These turned out so delicious! I made with the written amounts of sugars and these were very sweet. Personally I will cut each down to 1/4c in the future but that's a matter of preference; as written these are still yummy. I also used two chopped Gala apples, which came out to at least a cup and a half. This made a very fruity moist bar, which we loved. I would use half a cup if I needed a bar that was more resilient, with all the apple I used you couldn't really pick one up and munch it. The batter is stiff, I plopped it into the pan and had to use my fingers to spread it out. I look forward to making these all fall, thanks so much for sharing!

Extreme Banana Nut Bread 'EBNB'

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
Wonderful. I had let two bananas get way too ripe, which was the perfect amount for one loaf. I halved the recipe and everything turned out great, using about 1/4c brown and 3/4c white sugar. Thanks for sharing :)

Beef and Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
A perfect recipe for my quest to use up leftovers. My ground beef was cooked taco meat. I did add the Worchestershire sauce to those flavors and probably won't in the future, it gave the dish a chili-like flavor I wasn't looking for. I used a 14oz can of tomatoes, half a box of beef broth (approx. 14oz, I think...) and added extra fresh tomatoes, green pepper and a medium zucchini I had on hand. This was fast, flavorful and so much healthier/economical than eating out, thanks so much Campbell's!

Pork Chops O'Brien

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
Delicious, a really unique way to cook pork chops. The cheese and celery soup give the potatoes a nice flavor, in the future I will probably add some pepper to round it out. The chops were nice and tender under the cheese, those too I will season for our tastes in the future. I did use 2 cups cheese total but that was with reduced fat cheese, if you use full-fat I bet the 1c as written would be fine. Thanks so much for sharing.

Ground Beef Curly Noodle

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
Such a quick, flexible meal. I love recipes I can plug whatever is on hand into, and that's just what I did. I used a pound of leftover cooked brats and doubled the noodles, adding a can of chicken broth and thus draining the corn. I also added a medium zucchini I had in the fridge. I skipped the ramen seasoning pack and added a lot of crushed red pepper. I had never thought of using ramen noodles for the "pasta" in a dish, thanks so much for sharing.

Macaroni and Cheese with Ground Beef, Salsa and Green Chiles

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2011
I've made the Creamy Macaroni and Cheese several times, it's my favorite. This is the first time I've doctored it up at all and thought it was very good. I did use a full 16oz jar salsa but I was using leftover cooked ground beef and added a 16oz bag of frozen green beans. I must say, mac and cheese is a great rich cheesy side but I think it may be a little much for a full meal. My husband loved it, thanks so much for sharing.

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
Very good. I had really fresh green beans so I made sure to use fresh tomatoes and basil too (usually I would have used canned/dried), it was perfect. I did use 3tbsp butter and 1 tbsp olive oil with good results. Thanks very much for sharing.

Sausage Barley Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2011
We really liked this soup. I used some turkey smoked sausage I had on hand, slicing into small pieces. It was good, but I think using Italian sausage as written is more suited for the soup. The carrot and spinach were really good, I used 6oz fresh spinach with no problems. I agree with reviews that you should increase the barley, at least to 1/3c, maybe up to a half. I did make this on the stove to suit my schedule and it worked really well: cook up the sausage/onion/garlic in a soup kettle, add broth and seasoning and bring it to a boil, add barley and cook in the soup according to package directions, about 20 mins before it should be done add in the veggies and finish cooking. Thanks for sharing.

Corn with a Kick

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
Very yummy side dish. I used a 10oz can of tomatoes with green chilis and omitted the cayenne, which worked really well. Thanks for sharing.

The Real Mojito

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
This is very good, but I think the perfect mojito needs a mint syrup (1:1 ratio of sugar or splenda to water, boil together for ~3mins, add fresh mint leaves to taste and allow to cool together before straining). I played all weekend and the mint flavor just translated better when I used the syrup. I muddled a few mint leaves with 1 lime wedge in the glass for effect, then added to taste the syrup, rum, and lime juice; ice cubes; and topped with club soda. This also cut down on the "dirty fish tank" effect of the drink, which never bothered me much but my husband complained about. Fun to make and very refreshing, thanks so much for sharing.

Quick and Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2011
Very good. I made as directed and did not miss the crumb topping. While the pasta was draining I did cook the onion in 2tbsp butter to soften it, then added back all the ingredients to the pot. I also had a steamer bag of frozen veggies so I microwaved them as directed and added with everything else. I do think this needs more tuna (I used 3 5oz cans). Thanks for sharing.

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
I can't imagine how to make this recipe any better. I did decrease the sugar to 1 cup, but I don't like the really sweet beverages. I would probably just omit the sugar next time for my preference. I did find the mix fit nicely into two gallon ziptop bags, after about 22 hours it had not frozen solid but was nice and slushy. Thanks so much for sharing.

Wake-Up Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
Very yummy. The leftovers are really good too. I definitely prefer baking the potato patties (my package says 15-20 mins at 450) in the dish prior to assembling to make them nice and crispy. I love cheese, but 4 cups is wasted I think: 3 is enough to be decadent and cheesy. The egg mix is really good, I think seven is fine but you could easily add in more if you need to stretch it for a crowd. I do double the ham, but that's just our preference. This is a go-to breakfast recipe for us, thanks so much for sharing!

Grilled Asparagus Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
Delicious! I love cooked veggies but have been trying to get myself to eat more healthy salads. This was quick and flavorful, the slightly wilted spinach and asparagus were really well dressed with just the oil and juice. I tossed everything but the cheese and toasted almonds (not seasoned for our tastes) and then we added them to our tastes on the plate. I will make this again for sure, thanks so much for sharing.

Peanut Noodles

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
This recipe turned out really well for us. I did add closer to 1/4c of peanut butter but still didn't think there was quite enough peanut flavor. I subbed the same amount of rice noodles for a dish more Asian-style and we both really liked the change. I will definitely make again after fiddling with the sauce, thanks so much for sharing.

Chicken Tortilla Soup I

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
This soup is wonderful, I make it more often than any other soup. I freeze chunks of cooked chicken in 2c portions, which is ideal for this recipe, they don't even need to be thawed first. I do add more liquid (usually broth) for consistancy, which is just preference. Healthy and flavorful, I'm so happy you posted this!

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
Very, very good. I followed all directions/ingredients and the broccoli was delicious. I am not a huge vinegar fan so I will sub a mild vinegar (maybe seasoned rice vinegar) next time, but the mix of flavors is very satisfying. Thanks for sharing.

Spicy Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
We really liked this blend. Spicy as the title states, and the thyme in there gives a really nice flavor to all that spice. This would be a really nice seasoning mix for blackening the chicken, too. Thanks for sharing, this will be a definite repeat recipe :)

Laura's Unbelievable Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
Very quick and fresh. I had red peppers on hand so I subbed in one of those for the cherry tomatoes that I didn't have, but I think I would have preferred the spinach-tomato combination. I also used a 10oz bag of fresh spinach and that worked great, I didn't think there was too much of it either. I am not a huge fan of the cream cheese sauce, though. I think a can of cream soup (chicken, maybe mushroom or celery) would make this as creamy and be cheaper and more flavorful. I will make this again with that change. Thanks very much for sharing.
