Simple Roasted Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2014
So yummy! I've been wanting to try butternut squash, but I get scared of baked squashes because they get too mushy and the flavor that I'm not a huge fan of comes out. This way, they taste more like bites of potatoes and I love, love the garlic flavor! Will definitely make this again! (I added extra garlic, too.)

Easy Herb Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
This was my first turkey ever and it came out perfectly brown. Everyone loved the way it stayed so moist in the pan.

Shredded Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
These were a very festive way to serve brussels sprouts and everyone liked them. I used soy nuts instead of pine nuts. Take care not to overcook them because the flavor changes (which is the one most people hate).

Country Green Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
These green beans were phenomenal. Use a huge skillet, though. They make a lot more than they seem to make!

Baked Pork Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
These are the best spring rolls I've ever eaten! I made them for one party (the given serving size) and they were gone in like 15 minutes. I made them a second time for Christmas (with "Sweet and Sour Sauve II"--add cayenne, garlic chile sauce, and 2 Tbsp soy sauce). I made 30 that time and they were also a HUGE hit and disappeared quickly. By far, try these!!! You won't regret it! The only thing I changed is that I eliminated the cilantro because I'm not a fan. It wasn't missed.

Country Quiche

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
This is amazing quiche! My guests loved it and so did I! The only thing I might change next time is add a few green onions and mushrooms--the green onions because I love the flavor they give and the mushrooms because I'm a mushroom addict. Absolutely delicious!

Broccoli Cheese Soup V

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
This is the BEST broccoli cheese soup ever! I cook it all the time because it's quick and easy and I've never had anyone tell me that they didn't like it. A word to the wise, though: DO NOT USE 2 POUNDS OF VELVEETA! Normally I only use 1/4 pound (and I'm a cheese-a-holic!), but I usually buy the 1/2 pound block in case I want a little extra that day. I also recommend adding a little Tony Chachere's seasoning and a little garlic powder at the end. Be careful not to leave it on the burner too long, though, because the cheese will curdle easily.

These are awesome cookies! They're the typical gingerbread cookies with a very festive, holiday flavor.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2013
I thought this recipe was delicious! Especially since it's a crock-pot recipe! I made it one day as a diet thing (to eat some soup before each meal to eliminate calories) and I've thoroughly enjoyed it--which is not common for me with tortilla soup. I usually feel like they have too much chili powder, but this one is not like that. The only thing that I think is a little less-than-great is the canned tomatoes. I want to try to find some jarred peeled tomatoes next time because I feel like canned tomatoes taste a little like aluminum (but that's just a personal preference thing). Also, for the chicken, I used about 5-6 chicken tenders and boiled them in salted water, then shredded them myself.

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
I thought this was very tasty, but a different take than I was expecting because there is so much basil in it. I'd recommend using much less basil and adding some extra garlic and some Tony Chachere's seasoning until you like the flavor.

Creole Cornbread Stuffing

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
Flavor was great. The only suggestion I have is to use about half of a jalapeno. I'm from Louisiana, and it was too spicy for my family. This recipe makes a TON!

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
I loved this recipe. Easy, my first cranberry sauce. My only suggestion is to lessen the amount of orange juice.

Pesto Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2014
Quick and easy dinner. Yummy. I used bacon instead of prosciutto and put it on the top rack so it would crisp the bacon a bit, which caused a shell of sorts that trapped in heat and moisture. :) I think this would also be yummy with a nice meltable cheese inside.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2011
Great pie! I am more of a tart person than a pie person because pies generally have a bunch of added sugar and the filling is like the canned stuff (syrupy), which I think makes it taste less like the type of fruit you use. However, this recipe uses almost only the fruit for the filling and it's delicious! Not full of a branch of spices, either. The apple shines through. The only two suggestions I'd make are to use half granny smith and half red delicious apples to avoid overly tart flavor, and to make sure you take the sugar mixture off of the fire as soon as the sugar melts. If not, you'll end up with caramel and have to redo it.

Cheesecake Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
I thought this dip was fabulous. Caviat: I orginally made this recipe as is, and it was good, but I felt like I wanted more of the cheesecake flavor and less of the whipped cream flavor. So, I put in another block of cream cheese. Now, I made this recipe for 40 people, so my ratio was 2 blocks cream cheese (8 oz), one large tub of whipped cream, 1/3 cup of milk (not adding more milk helped thicken it a bit), and added powdered (not granulated) sugar to taste. I found it had more of a cheesecake flavor this way, but both ways were delicious, depending on your tastes. PS--I made it as a fruit dip for a shower, but it is very similar to what we use for Mississippi Mud Pie. Great!

Sweet and Sour Sauce II

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
I had never made sweet and sour sauce before, but I wanted to use it to go along with the recipe for Pork Spring Rolls on here (which, by the way, are AWESOME!). I used the pineapple chunks in the sauce, but it came out very sweet, so I offset it with a little (asian) garlic chile sauce (the one I used in the spring rolls, in case you'r e making them too), and some cayenne pepper to give it a kick. I also added two little packets (2 Tbsp) of soy sauce (like you get with take out), as another person suggested. It was a huge hit! Everyone loved it.

Sesame Tilapia

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
Love the way the sesame oil tastes and the way its scent lingers in the air when I'm done cooking. Didn't have sesame seeds to add, but would like to try that. I used someone else's advice to try lemon pepper seasoning, but I also sprinkled a tad of the Italian seasoning. I'd also like to try this with ginger next time for a Hawaiian flair.
