Chicken Corn Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2015
Made as directed and the results were fabulous! Made it a second time with a packet of fajita seasonings and it tastes the same (go for which option is easiest for you!). I chose MOJO seasoned rotisserie chicken and topped the soup with lime juice, Mexican cheese blend, and fresh cut cilantro. Served with soft flour tortillas to the family members who don't enjoy crushed crunchy tortilla chips . We will definitely make this again as it is perfect as written.

Jumbo Shells with Asparagus, Prosciutto, Ricotta Cheese and Three Cheese Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2014
Made as directed without substitutes, I had way too many shells go to waste. Boil half as much noodles and you will have plenty to work with. In the future, I will omit the asparagus as it threw us off texture and flavor-wise. Also, I'd substitute prosciutto next time as it was hard to find fresh in the south. Good prosciutto is suppose to smell and taste similarly to bacon. It should never feel slimy to the touch and should slice easily.

Spaghetti with Buffalo and Tomato and Basil Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2014
We liked this recipe. It is something we would be interested in eating again. However, it's not amazing and I just don't understand why Barilla needs so many additions to their sauces to make it a tasty dish. Why does a sauce with basil in the name need a recipe asking for more basil? I chose a red wine that pairs with buffalo and wasn't impressed with the outcome. It's good but just another spaghetti recipe in my opinion.

Applesauce Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2014
The streusel ingredients threw me off because I'm use to cutting in cold butter for streusel toppings. I prepared as instructed and it's worth 3 stars as it because it was okay. I added 2 more slices of bread to the recipe to thicken it up, changed the brown sugar amount to 2/3 cups, and added 3 tbsp melted butter to the bread mixture. I cut in 2 tbsp cold butter with the streusel ingredient which made a beautiful and thick topping. The Mott's in this recipe was a really nice flavor add and I think with the changes its a 4-5 star recipe. It taste better also when reheated after the flavors had a chance to meld together.

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2014
Wow! This recipe tastes absolutely wonderful! I suggest using the cooking vanilla pudding to make sure the cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk get fully incorporated with one another. This is a recipe I will use again and again. Got rave reviews from everyone AND it's nice to say, "Just make your banana pudding recipe and whip in softened cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk" when everyone's asking for the recipe over and over.

Wavy Lasagna with Meat Sauce, Fresh Ricotta and Spinach

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2014
I used a jar and a half of sauce. Added 3/4 lb. Italian sausage to the Barilla meat sauce because other reviewers suggested adding more meat to the recipe. This is a wonderful lasagna recipe that I would highly suggest you to try. Wonderful balance of flavors and textures.

Elbows Mac and Cheese with Tuscan Herb Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2014
What a wonderful way to incorporate the Barilla sauce with a classic favorite. The fontina cheese is a must for this recipe. The flavor combination with the cream, cheese, and tomato sauce is delectable to the last bite. I'd highly suggest giving this recipe a try. It's quick, tasty, a twist on a classic, and I think your whole family would thank you.

Grilled Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: May 30, 2014
Tasty but mine hadn't cooked long enough. Followed recipe exactly as stated and it was grainy. Remade recipe, extending cook time to 20 minutes and it was very tasty. Such a creative use for a shortcake shell!

Brown Bears

Reviewed: May 30, 2014
Made this twice so far. First, as directed using the butter and cinnamon as coating after it's done cooking. Second time, I coated it in the cinnamon-sugar mixture before cooking followed by the butter and cinnamon coating. Wow! It's like Monkey bread or a cinnamon roll to go! It's very pretty, cheap, and simple. I will be keeping this recipe to pass on as a camping breakfast tradition. It was so much fun to make! Thanks for this delicious recipe! If you want to make these at home because you are craving them but weather isn't permitting camping, follow the recipe but bake at temperature and time suggested on your biscuit can, rotating once half way through cook time.

Karen's Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2014
The dough is so difficult to work with. I couldn't use the cookie cutters on it and they were pretty bland to taste. I prefer the rolled sugar cookies on this site that contain Cream cheese. Those are really easy to work with cookie cutters.

Ashley and Whitney's Popcorn and Pretzel Sweet Snack Mix

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2014
This recipe has such a unique flavor! Cinnamon with cranberries and salted pretzels really wows your taste buds. I wouldn't suggest any substitutions but definitely make this for a big group and triple the recipe.

Amazing Muffin Cups

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2014
Really great flavors and presentation. Do follow the directions and have some paper towels ready to remove some of the oil collected at the bottom of the cups. This would be a great take along recipe for family and church brunches. This really is just a casserole recipe made in a muffin tin. This recipe was extremely easy to prepare.

Barbecue Beef Cups

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2014
Substituted Sausage to enter into a 6-ingredient or less sausage as a beef substitute contest. I doubt I'll win but this recipe's flavor is a winner. Easy to make also!

Avocado Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2014
I made it as is, re-made it as suggested by other reviewers. Imagine bland guacamole mixed with bland Mac'n'cheese. Not worth it unless you change the type of cheese.

Cheesecake-Stuffed Strawberries

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2014
I didn't have graham crackers (couldn't get any either since we are currently snowed in) so I just dipped and drizzled Godiva milk chocolate on them, mixed filling in my food processor with the hulled part of strawberries thrown in too. I suggest serving with a side of whip cream.
