Really great. I didn't even add the frosting, and it was still fantastic! — debbysalmon 7/18/2014

Lo-Mein

Lo-Mein

Really good, really easy, can easily be used with any meat. (We used steamed fish cake.) My husband and I both liked, along with my 5 year old and 2 year old. What could be better than that? — mermaiden 4/15/2013
Lamb with Potatoes and Peas (Kheema)

Lamb with Potatoes and Peas (Kheema)

Absolutely delicious, and so easy! I used a can of diced tomatoes and it was great. Will definitely add this to our standard repertoire. — susanjm 1/16/2013
Salmon Loaf

Salmon Loaf

Really good! I used about a cup of onion and a whole green pepper, and used crushed saltines instead of breadcrumbs. I will definitely use this recipe again. — mrsroskopeeko 7/9/2012
No Fail Pie Crust

No Fail Pie Crust

Really easy to make, really easy to work with. Tastes great, too. Flaky and basic. This recipe made 3 1 crust pies, for me. — debapaka 4/7/2012

Delicious and easy! Husband couldn't stop raving about it! — heathero 3/18/2012
Black Bean Salad

Black Bean Salad

Fantastic! I served it with cheese enchiladas verde. Perfect combination. — 1MoreCreative 3/18/2012
Dunkley's Famous Macaroni Salad

Dunkley's Famous Macaroni Salad

Definitely the best macaroni salad I've ever had. I didn't add quite as much mayo as the recipe calls for because I don't like it quite as creamy. Don't plan on going to a meeting right after eating it though -- spicy onion/garlic breath! — MDCrabcake 3/7/2012
Moroccan Lamb Shanks

Moroccan Lamb Shanks

Fantastic! Made this with saffron rice in the rice cooker. Husband was thrilled! — keepsmilyn 1/30/2012
Mom's No Bake Cookies

Mom's No Bake Cookies

Really good, but really sugary. I only used 3/4 of what was called for. Next time I will only use 1/2. — love2cook05 11/17/2011
Beef Stroganoff- Unbelievably easy! (Kid-Friendly, Alcohol-Free)

Beef Stroganoff- Unbelievably easy! (Kid-Friendly, Alcohol-Free)

Good and easy! I made it with hamburger because it's what I had. The recipe leaves out when to add the bouillon, so I forgot to add it and it still tasted good. A little bland, but just fine with a bit of salt and pepper. Happily eaten by 1 year old, 4 year old and husband. — apostolicmom 11/6/2011
Cake Mix Cookies

Cake Mix Cookies

Cherry Chip cake mix with white chocolate chips and slivered almonds. Yum! A quick and easy recipe that kids can help with. — jwedzee 11/5/2011
Arroz Con Pollo [Rice with Chicken]

Arroz Con Pollo [Rice with Chicken]

This was great. We didn't think it was at all too spicy. I thought it was just right, and my spice-loving husband liked it but had to add some hot sauce. We used fresh tomatoes and corn from the garden and it was terrific. — tyson 9/14/2011
Steve's Fish Tacos

Steve's Fish Tacos

Fantastic! I added lots of cumin and coriander and put Jalapeno Tabasco on top. This will now be a new staple recipe in our house. — StevesKitchen 7/30/2011
Crazy Healthy Cinnamon Banana Pancakes

Crazy Healthy Cinnamon Banana Pancakes

These are great. Very sticky batter and very brown color, but fantastic taste. Even my relatively picky 3 year old loved them! And, low glycemic index so said 3 year old wasn't bouncing off the walls. — cheflaurelhudson 7/29/2011
Shepherd's Pie (gordon Ramsey's)

Shepherd's Pie (gordon Ramsey's)

Delicious! I used catsup instead of tomato paste, and frozen peas and carrots instead of the grated carrot, and it was still terrific. I also used beef broth. I was worried it would be too rich, but it turned out great. I think it is important to really reduce down the meat and wine untill it really is almost gone. Otherwise, it will have too much liquid and not thicken up nicely. — dianarose40 3/17/2011
rhubarb cake

rhubarb cake

Great recipe! I substituted 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour for part of the white flour, and reduced the sugar by 1/4 cup. Texture, even with whole wheat was light and fluffy, but not falling apart. The same recipe could easily be used with any fruit. I'll definitely make this again. — alice1 2/6/2011
Homestyle Meatloaf

Homestyle Meatloaf

This made my husband say "If my mom had made meatloaf like ths, I wouldn't think I didn't like meatloaf!" Fantastic! — sgrishka 1/28/2011
Moroccan Lamb Shanks

Moroccan Lamb Shanks

This is great, and so easy. I didn't have Middle Eastern seasoning, so I made it up with cumin, cinnamon, coriander, thyme, and red pepper. I don't know how accurate that mix was, but it tasted great! — keepsmilyn 1/16/2011

Thanks so much for trying my recipe! You're right! I totally forgot to write when to add the boullion. Since you left out the boullion, that would account for the blandness. Should you try making this again, add the boullion into the water. It should disintegrate into the water with some stirring before you add it to the skillet. Once again, thanks for trying my recipe! I'm glad your family liked it!
