Kelly's Super Simple Shower Punch

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
I thought this punch was great...as a person who needs to watch sugar intake I used diet sprite and raspberry sherbert and I didn't have a big spike in my blood sugar after having a small amount. Usually I can't drink punch. It WAS super easy to make and tasted great. I made it for my parent's 50th anniversary party and it was gone by end of the party!

Moroccan Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
We loved this soup. I didn't have all the spices so I used a curry spice which contained most of what was called for. Also I added a cup of shredded chicken breast and used 2 cans of pinto beans (what was in the pantry). I am not a fan of putting soup in the blender, but it was worth it. I also added salt as suggested and it really made a difference. Served with homemade bread. Great!

Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
Delicious! I tried this on a whole chicken, scaling the recipe down to 4 servings. It was not enough and I ended up with 2x the water called for. I let it soak in a large stew pot for 8 hours. It took about an hour at 325 in a convection oven. I cooked it beer-butt fashion, emptying the beer and using 1/2 can of the brine. it was really juicy and tender, and more flavorful. The skin was brown and crispy. Definately an improvement over the usual way of baking poultry. And it was not difficult in any way. I will try it on turkey next time. UPDATE: cooked an 18 lb turkey for thanksgiving, and wow! I did use 1/2 apple juice instead of all broth and similar spices on hand. At 300 the turkey would have been done in 2 hours...so I turned the heat down to 275 when the internal temp was 135 and it was done in 3 hours! the breast meat was REALLY MOIST...I found that amazing in such a large bird. Everyone at the table agreed it was a 5 star turkey!

Potato Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2007
Biscuits are not our usual fare, however these were a wonderful treat for us. Everyone loved them and they were VERY easy to make, especially nice not to roll the dough out and cut. I am not comfortable with baking at such high temperatures so I cut it down to 375 and cooked a bit longer.

Low Carb Zucchini Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2012
We were impressed! My husband said 'best zucchini he ever had'. We eat diabetic friendly, and I have lots of zucchini in the garden. Even my boys thought it was 'edible'. This is easy to make as the Zucchini is easy to shred, getting the water out of it was the difficult part. I didn't have basil leaves, and I used shredded Mexican blend cheese, but I kept everything else the same. I noticed it took longer to cook on each side than stated, but that was probably because of the water content.

Graham Cracker Crust I

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
Yum! I used Splenda instead of sugar and only baked for 5 minutes. I used it for a pumkin cheesecake from this site and it turned out delicious.

Cranberry Sauce I

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
I had no idea how easy making your own cranberry sauce could be, the only change to the recipe was I used Splenda in place of sugar. Served for thanksgiving and everyone was impressed.

Pumpkin Layer Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
Oh ya baby! This is ultimately delicious! I think even a 1/2 cup more of the pumkin mixture could be added, but zero complaints in taste and it was gobbled up.

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
Everyone said = Really Delicious. this recipe calls for a vast amount of ingredients, so I cut back white sugar to 2 cups and used 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, 1/2 cup applesauce in place of 1/2 cup of oil and had to use a little pumplin pie mix, which has a bit of sugar already in it. It made 32 muffins and I filled the empty muffin cups with 1/4 of water to even out the baking process. 30 minutes in 350 convection oven. MMMMMMmmmmmmmmmm

Sugar 'n' Spice Nuts

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
I thought this recipe was far superior in taste compared to other similar recipes. I only used walnuts and almonds (my preference) and since I didn't have orange zest I used a tablespoon of orange juice. I epecially liked the ginger. Since I eat nuts as a healthy addition to my diet, I will definately make again.

Kung Pao Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2007
Wow. As others suggessted I tripled the marinate and quadrupled the sauce. Instead of water chestnuts I used onions and chopped baby carrots. I didn't have peanuts, so I sauted the onions, chili paste, carrots and garlic in oil and 1T of peanut butter. I served over steamed Jasmine rice, really, really good.

Cherry Pie III

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
Simply put...the best cherry pie I've made. I did use a Pilsbury crust and 3 cans Oregon pie cherries, left the rest the same and voila! deliciousness.

Sukhothai Pad Thai

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
I wasn't sure whether to give this a 4 or a 5 because the taste was 5+, but I did make some reviewer suggested changes. Like using rice vinegar and using lemon juice in place of tamarind. I used 1/8 cup spicy oyster sauce & 1/8 cup soy sauce and cut WAY BACK on the oil. Since I was serving this with chicken satay I didn't add tofu. I had extra Peanut Sauce I from this site and drizzled that in with the pad thai sauce. My husband thought he'd died and gone to heaven, and so did I. It was unbelievably delicious.

Chicken Stew with Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
This is wonderful chicken and dumplings, really just like my grandmother used to make. I used frozen chicken thighs and stewed them in about 20 minutes. After I scooped off the goop on top I added a can of chicken broth. I chopped the carrots, onion and celery fine and left out the potatoes and peas. After it simmered about 45 minutes I added about 1/2 cup of milk then the dumplings. I have never had the dumplings turn out so wonderfully, they were perfect. My family really liked it too.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
Delicious! Who knew refried beans could be soooooo much better than the store's? I didn't have a jalepeno so I used a few drops of habenero hot sauce. It cooked on its own for 7 hours and then I used a hand mixer. So easy, so good.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
Holy cow! (no pun intended) this is delicious, especially considering we're not big beef eaters, nor do we particularly love meat cooked in the crock pot. I used a prime rib roast and removed the slab of fat on top. With 1 can of soup and water (didn't have 2) the gravy was still rich, but the meat was very tender and absolutely delectable. At about 4 lbs. it only took 4 hours on high and another hour on low to be cooked through.

Chicken Pot Pie VI

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2008
Delicious! this was very easy to prepare and turned out wonderfully. I wasn't sure about seasoning the water to cook the chicken in, so I used a bullion cube and put the onion and seasonings in the mix. I only used one crust on top of the pie and used 98% fat free soups with a smidge of milk. I used an egg wash on the crust. In my oven it was done in about 35 minutes and my family loved it.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
This makes me happy! Since I was using the alfredo sauce in another dish, I left out the garlic and spices and added enough 2% milk until it reached the consistancy I desired. It was thick, rich and delicious. My husband, who used to own a restaurant, was really impressed.
