Fantastic Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
This is the first time I have ever rated a recipe! My husband and I loved this! I used lean ground beef because that's what I had. I'm originally from Texas and we have to have cumin in our chili! I added about a tablespoon of cumin. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. Yummy!!!

Triple Berry Crisp

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2008
Excellent! I used frozen blueberries and it was perfect. I did cook it a little longer than stated as it didn't look done in the center. May have been due to the frozen berries. Thank you!

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2008
Excellent! I made these last week using fresh (not frozen) bananas and they were fabulous. Today I made them using frozen bananas and while they are still good, the first batch was far better. I definitely suggest fresh bananas! Thank you for a great recipe.

Cheesy Potato and Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
Made this for dinner tonight and we all LOVED it! I used chicken gravy mix since I didn't have the country gravy mix and I ended up adding about a tablespoon of cornstarch to thicken it a little more. Used fat free milk, 12oz frozen corn and Light 2% Velveeta. This is a keeper! Oh by the way, if you are on Weight Watchers like me, this is only 3 points per cup (using the substitutions I made)!

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
Oooooh Yeah...this is a keeper! I can't wait to serve this to company. I used monterrey jack cheese and it was fabulous! I cooked the bacon (one slice per piece of chicken) in the microwave and crumbled it before topping the chicken with it. I sauteed the mushrooms in a little olive oil/butter mixture and removed them before browning the chicken (which I marinated with a little worcestershire and sprinkled with seasoned salt). I did not use the corn syrup per others reviews. From there I assembled as directed. Great recipe!

Chicken Enchiladas Suizas

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
This recipe is perfect! OMG, the filling is unbelievable. The only thing I did different was to not use the red bell pepper. I don't know what people are talking about with the sauce being too thin...it was perfect when using the exact proportions as written. Too give this an extra kick, try adding a dollop of sour cream on each serving. I thought I had the best chicken enchilada recipe. Not anymore! This is my new one!!! Thanks for a great recipe! You know, I just went back and read the opening paragraph where the author said she usually doubled the whipping cream and chicken broth. I think that would make this recipe PERFECT! Just wish I had read that part before I made this batch, which by the way, made TWO complete meals for a family of four. I cooked one pan and froze the other.

Pineapple Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
I have to agree with others...this cake is NOT sweet enough and a little on the dry side. I followed the recipe exactly. I won't use the recipe again. Sorry!

Double Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
First bite and this pie is great, but after just a couple bites it is way to strong. I guess if you like super rich chocolate this might be good. I think I will stick to my old fashioned chocolate cream pie recipe.

Baked Pesto Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
This is a great, quick and easy, recipe! I used fresh tomatoes from my garden and provolone cheese (didn't have any mozarella) and it was delicious. Next time I will try it with the mozarella, though I can't imagine it being any better!!

Easy Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
I have to repeat what many others have said...this is a great pie crust if you are in a hurry, but too salty for a sweet filling. I read others comments and cut back on the salt for a chocolate pie filling. It was still a bit salty. I will save this one for quiche filling. Edited....I used this again tonight for a pumpkin pie, but cut the salt to about 1/4 tsp and used a full Tablespoon of sugar. Worked great for the pumpkin pie! Of course, I didn't bake it first, but it filled and baked as usual with pumpkin pies. Very flaky and good. A little "different" taste than traditional pie crust, but still very good.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
Years ago, I cooked roast with a recipe just like this which I had gotten from my cousin. I had forgotten about it so I was happy to have my memory jogged! I never salt meat before cooking it so I did not add salt, but added TONS of black pepper. My old recipe called for cooking at 500 degrees for 5 minutes per pound and leaving in the oven for three hours. Not sure what size roast I used. Anyway, this is the BEST way to cook Eye of Round roast. It's delicious with a horseradish cream sauce on the side!

Yummy Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
There were awesome! DH declared them the best pork chops he has ever eaten! I didn't have enough soy sauce, so probably only used 2 T (actually, I had a couple packets of soy sauce left from Chinese take-out and that is what I used!). Had a bottle of Tuscan dressing that I wanted to finish off, so 1 Cup of my dressing was that and the other cup was regular Italian dressing. I did brown the chops in a little olive oil and then sliced an onion on top, poured the dressing mixture over all, covered and popped into oven at 350 for about an hour and a half. Yummy! is right!

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
Super quick, super easy, and super good!!! I doubled the recipe for three of us and we each had a nice BIG bowl of soup as our complete dinner. Since we are all on South Beach, this was a perfect dinner!

Burgundy Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
Very easy and very good. Loved the "gravy". I used the leafy tops from the celery, left them all in one piece and laid them across the tops of the pork ternderloins along with sliced onion. Made it easy to remove before make the gravy, but still added flavor.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
Excellent! Loved the tomato juice in this. I did a couple packages of Williams chili seasoning and ommited the chili powder. Still added cumin and oregano. Used chili seasoned tomato sauce and chili beans. Very good chili.

Raspberry Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
Sorry, didn't care for this one. Just wasn't sweet enough for us. I served it over cheesecake, but even with the sweetness of the cheesecake, the sauce was just too tart.

Pork Chops and Dirty Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
This is very good! Like others have said, it is also very easy and doesn't make a big mess. I have always done the pork chops, rice and mushroom soup bake, but decided to try something different. We all liked it very much. I was a bit afraid the rice might be a little dry without the soup so I made a separate pan of cream gravy. Glad I did. The cream gravy was excellent with the rice and the chops! Hubby said the gravy was a great idea! I'm sure if I make this again, I will make the gravy as well. I'm just afraid without it the dish would be too dry. Overall: very good!

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
These are excellent! I cooked overnight in the crockpot since we were having company for lunch around 1:00 and I knew they wouldn't have time to cook otherwise. I used an immersible blender to "mash" them when they were done and left them in the crockpot on warm. Also, I like to add shredded cheddar cheese when mashing them. This even makes them creamier! Yum...

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
This frosting is amazing! It makes cupcakes taste like those you pay $3.00 each for at the specialty cupcake shops! It came out perfect for me, not runny at all as some have said. I first softened my cream cheese at room temperature for about three hours and mixed it with the sugar and vanilla until it was very light and fluffy. I chilled my bowl and beaters before whipping the cream. Then folded the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture using my Kitchenaide stand mixer on #1 on the mixer to "fold" in the cream cheese. No lumps! It was perfect. This is my new favorite frosting!!!

Hot Bean Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
I had left over pinto beans which I warmed and then mashed (I do not like canned refried beans!). I added the entire package taco seasoning and I forgot the parsley so I add it on top. Also, I sprinkled shredded cheese on top AFTER it came out of the oven instead of before so that it didn't have that tough cheese layer on top. Added a little extra cumin and chili powder. This dish was a HIT at a party!!!
