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?

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!!!!

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.

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.

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!!!

Andrea's Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
Everyone who wants to change this recipe and still call it Pasta e Fagioli should read this review: Reviewed on Jan. 7, 2010 by T-Bone Start by saying that I am 100% Italian. This is a recipe for pasta fagioli an Italian soup that means "pasta with beans". Pasta Fagioli does not have ground meat,carrots,celery etc. It has pasta, tomato and beans. By the way this recipe as it stands is very good. Also, I have made this recipe over and over and find that it needs no 'kickers' or additions or subtractions. This is a true Pasta e Fagioli. My only change would be to make more of it. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.

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?

English Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
I've been roasting potatoes this way for years. Didn't know they were considered 'English' though. I also make my own Italian Dressing and marinate the potatoes a few minutes and then roast so I guess mine could be considered 'English-Italian', huh? This recipe is fine as is though and is so adaptable to tweaking. Thanks for this one.

Cream of Mushroom Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
C'mon, people. If you change the recipe and add a little of this and that and take away a little of this and that, then it isn't the original recipe you're rating, is it? This author went to a lot of trouble to put this recipe up and it should be rated as is. The recipe is great and needs no tweaking. If you change it, then submit your CHANGED recipe as your own. Thank you for submitting this just-finne-as-is fantastic recipe.

Corn and Black Bean Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
I made this recipe this week and it is just great. I doubled the recipe and am still eating on it. We put pasta in it for the 2nd time and added a little more sugar. Next time, I'll probably add some kind of a white bean. Thank you for sharing. Since my first review, I've continued with this salad as a "go-to". I've added cannellini beans and serve over rice. The dressing can be so versatile.

Chewy Coconut Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
I made these this week and must say that they are the absolute best for sure and deserve more stars than I can assign. I did use 3X the amt of coconut called for and went with the margarine as the fat. But they are just soooo soooo tasty. And, no, I couldn't eat just one. Thanks for the recipe, Myrtis. I'll be making these again and again. I gave some to a neighbor and she scarfed 'em down too. So next time, will be making 2 big batches. yum yum Bonnie N.

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.
