Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: May 7, 2014
Instead of the cilantro (hate it) I use kale. Otherwise, I pretty much go with the recipe. Very good after it sits in the fridge a day or two.

Shrimp and Sugar Snap Peas

Reviewed: May 7, 2014
I make this frequently. Usually add mushrooms and onions and increase the amount of garlic. However, if I use this recipe I'll have to find the chili oil. I've looked in numerous grocers and have come up with nothing. Can someone tell me where to look for chili oil?

Slovak Haluski

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2014
My mother introduced me to this recipe over 40 years ago. I've made it in several variations over the subsequent years. I like to add a few coins of kielbasa occasionally and vary the pastas.

Honey Bean Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2014
This salad is sooo fine. I've made it numerous times now since first stumbling upon it. I make it about once a week. I've added macaroni and kale and an extra white bean and have used the two kidney beans. I've made it so many times that now I have to get another large jar of honey from the grocer.

Simple and Delicious Kale Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2014
Didn't change a thing. Couldn't be much simpler. And for sure delicious. I've made this many times. Usually use cannellini beans. They come out so creamy.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
I've just gotta say, I will never have to look for another chocolate chip cookie recipe again!!! Throw all of those others away or hide them in the rear end of your cookbooks. These cookies are so good that I've eaten practically the entire batch. I halved the recipe and used half chocolate chips and half white chocolate chips. I lost track when I was mixing and I think I got a little heavy handed with the white sugar but I don't think it caused any harm. I can see why the cookies were award winners. I'm going to make more batches for Christmas gifts for the postman, recycle and trash pick-up men and a friend or two. These cookies deserve 10 stars.

Oregon Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2013
Since finding this recipe here years ago, I've never used any other recipe for salmon patties. I've misplaced my original printout and had to come and get another. I make the patties exactly as the recipe instructs and haven't ever been disappointed. I use a butter cracker similar to Ritz as the crumbs. However, I don't usually get a full ¾ cup of liquid drained from the can of salmon and have to add a little chicken broth which really can't be noticed in the tasting. Excellent recipe!!!!

Juiciest Hamburgers Ever

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2013
I've always had a problem with the meat falling apart in the skillet. Have used bread crumbs but with not much success. Other reviewers' suggestions of bread and milk works just fine. Otherwise this is a fine recipe. Thank you.

Easy Mango Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: May 12, 2013
Thie smoothie recipe has been way overlooked. I find that it is just perfect. I halved it and it is so easy to remember. 4 ingredients: 1-1-1-1. Easy to make, easy to remember. How much better can you get?

Shrimp Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2013
I make this recipe all of the time. And here I thought that I had invented it. Sometimes I make it without any sauce at all and it is still delicious. My combination of shrimp, garlic, onions and mushrooms with mild seasonings over rice can easily stand alone.

Easy Asian Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2013
You had me at 'pasta' and 'sugar snap peas'. Didn't change a thing and it makes a stand-alone meal for me. Of course, it's easy to add chicken thigh meat or shrimp which I will probably do next time. Thank you.

Pork Chops for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2012
Instead of messing with flour or cornstarch as thickening agent, I add a tbsp of dry tapioca to my crockpot gravies. It works well and you can't taste it in the final product. For 3 c of liquid, I usually add 2 tbsp. This recipe turned out fine for me. My only change/addition was the tapioca.

Microwave Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2012
I leave 'em in the husks and also wrap with the moist+ paper towels and nuke 2min. per ear. Then leave them in the towels to steam for another minute. The silks just almost fall off. Butter w/ a little garlic salt. I make a meal out of the corn and carmelized brussel sprouts and sliced fresh garden tomato slices. Mmmmmmmmm--can't beat it.

Unbelievably Good Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2011
This is so very well named!!! I love it! So very good. Mine was a little lumpy but I didn't use a mixer or blender and will do so next time but the texture didn't take away from the taste. Absolutely amazing for so few ingredients. Thanks for the recipe.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2011
I've made it often and actually have a couple of slices left in my kitchen right now. It is wonderfully chocolaty and stays moist for a long time.

Rolled Dumplings

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
I made these tonight and they are just great!! I like flat, chewy dumplings so I used just half of the baking powder recommended. Otherwise, I kept to the recipe. I dropped half of the recipe into a pot of chicken w/broth and am drying the other half. Don't know how the dried half will turn out as I've not done this before but I'll learn something by trying. This is the best dumpling recipe I've found and let me tell you, I've been looking for years. Thanks so much for sharing.

Kidney Bean and Chickpea Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2011
I have just recently fallen for chickpeas. This salad brings out the great taste of both beans. I use the dried beans to bring up more flavor. I also use purple onion sliced paper thin. This is sooo good. Thanks for posting the recipe.

Vanilla - Chocolate Powdered Sugar Frosting

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
Made this tonight with the cocoa for 9X13 MMMmmm Chocolate Cake from this site. Frosting is easy and quick to put together. Didn't even need all of the milk. I think I just used less than a tablespoon. Not too sweet. Just right. I will be making this frosting again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

MMMmmm Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
Made this tonight in a 9X13 pan and followed recipe exactly. It is just right...moist and light crumb. Had to use AP flour w/baking powder + salt as I don't keep SR flour. This cake would be fine with only a powdered sugar dusting as topping but I went ahead and used the Vanilla-Chocolate Powdered Sugar Frosting from this site. I've eaten two large squares of cake already which I really have no business doing. But it is soooo good!!! This will be my go-to chocolate cake recipe from now on. Thank you for sharing, Denise. Photo doesn't do it justice.

Excellent recipe and thank you for sharing. I make this all year 'round. Only thing I do differently is to make my own Italian Dressing for it. Kudos!!!
