Hearty Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2013
OUTSTANDING! We absolutely loved this recipe! I had a lot of peppers so probably doubled the recommended amount using half red and half green bell; added a bag of fresh spinach to the veggies in the simmer pot; also found that 1 and a half jars of sauce were more than enough. I made this in a regular lasagna pan and it worked out perfectly. Also, recipe directions weren't clear on this, but be sure to top the lasagna with a last layer of noodles, tiny bit of sauce, and then the rest of the mozzarella. This will be my go-to recipe for lasagna from now on!

Stuffed Zucchini

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2013
Excellent! My entire family loved this! I used ground turkey since we just ate sausage two days prior, added some fresh basil, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I used two gigantic zucchini from my garden to make 4 boats and it was the perfect amount of filling. (They didn't fit into a 9x13 pan so I used 2 cookie sheets but still covered them with foil and lined the pan with foil for easy clean-up. Worked great!)

Sour Cherry Pudding Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
Really easy and yummy! I substituted coconut oil for the veg oil, but otherwise followed recipe exactly as outlined. I made it with fresh sour cherries and used a strong straw to push the pits out, which worked great. This recipe would work great with other fruits/berries as well. Will definitely make this again!

Carol's Baked Ziti Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2013
This recipe was great -- I'm going to replace my current baked ziti recipe with this one. I did add 2T of Tastefully Simple garlic bread seasoning but even if you don't have that I'd recommend adding some seasonings of your choice (oregano, garlic, etc). I also mixed the sauce in with the ricotta mix instead of layering it. I found that it only needed to cook for 35 minutes and I took the foil off about 10 before the timer was set to go off so it got a little brown on top. Yummy!

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2013
This salad was great! I used only half the amount of olive oil and balsamic and it was more than enough dressing for our family. Also didn't have pine nuts so substituted with chopped almonds which worked just fine. My entire family raved about this (including two 5-year-olds)!

Chicken With Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
Absolutely awesome -- my family wouldn't stop raving about this the whole way through dinner. I did sauté the mushrooms with some garlic in the butter first. I used chicken tenderloins instead of breasts (since that's what I had on hand) and added a can of cream of mushroom soup to the broth. Will definitely be making this again soon!

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
Made the cake exactly as outlined above (except used a vanilla buttercream icing) and it turned out great. My husband prefers a darker chocolate cake made with a cup of coffee but everyone else loved this cake.

Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
Following the recommendations of others I used all butter (1 stick salted, 1 stick unsalted) and followed the rest of the recipe exactly and it turned out really good but a little too sweet. I will definitely make this recipe again but I will start with 3 cups of sugar and add more to taste.

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
Good but definitely not as good as fried rice you would get in a restaurant. Next time I will omit the pepper since it is very overpowering in this recipe.

Tandy Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2012
This recipe is great! I made it in a 9x13 cake pan and if using this size I would recommend lowering the peanut butter amount back to 1c. I also used all the leftover Hershey's eggs and kisses from Easter for the chocolate topping and it worked perfectly -- double bonus!!
