Very versatile recipe!! If you're finding it too sweet, I put Old Fashioned Oats in mine, and it tames the sweetness a little bit. Great recipe, because I was able to put a bunch of random items that have been sitting in our cupboard for a while: stale graham crackers, chocolate chips, chopped pecans, oats. Left out the coconut because we didn't have any and it's still delicious!

Jambalaya II

Delicious flavor, but I simmered for over an hour and could NOT get the rice cooked thoroughly. I loved it anyway, but next time I'm going to make the rice separately until just cooked, then simmer in the Jambalaya for a while for flavor.

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

I LOVE Tomato Cream Sauce, and this recipe is a godsend! It's SO delicious. I did throw it in the blender for a thicker consistency after following the recipe. For someone without a blender, perhaps substituting the diced tomato with canned tomato sauce and herbs would yield a similar result.

These are very yummy, but very rich. We can only have these once in a long while and can't really eat leftovers, because it feels so heavy. But it IS tasty!

Chicken Thigh and Dumpling Stew

Not exactly like traditional chicken & dumplings I'm used to, but a VERY tasty stew. Everyone goes nuts over it and asks for the recipe. The recipe ingredients and instructions are perfect! I personally like more dumplings, so I put more in and added more liquid.

I really wanted to like this dish...but it was way too rich. Maybe good as tiny hors d'oeuvres, but I'm definitely not going to make this again. We disliked it so much we took the leftover chicken filling mix and baked it with macaroni and shredded cheeses to salvage the ingredients we had used to make this.

My husband loved these! I used Pilsbury's Crescent Recipe Creations, and it still tasted great.

Amazing taste for such an easy and cheaply made dish!! I'm not into beans and my husband usually has to have meat in his meals, but this was SO good, both of us love it.

I was surprised how easy these were to make! Everyone especially loved the presentation with the cookie crust. Word of warning: Don't refrigerate too much or the cookie gets very hard.

SO good and SO easy! Very fresh tasting. It was so tasty that my husband kept trying to eat it all by itself with a spoon, haha

Holiday Chicken Salad

Nicole's rating

If I eat more than a bite of chicken salad, I usually feel sick, but this one isn't too creamy or as heavy-feeling. It has such interesting flavors with the nuts and cranberries. If you're going to make chicken salad, this is the recipe to use.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies II

I put in fewer chocolate chips and make sure to include the nuts since these are so rich. Delicious cookies!! I made them twice in one week! :-D
