Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2010
Awesome salad. I cut the amount of the olive oil and red wine vinegar in half. Also used a slightly rounded TBS of sugar. We only ate 1/2 of the salad the first night, but that was fine because reviewers said it was even better the next day. They weren't kidding! Next day I wrapped some in a warm tortilla with a little sharp cheddar. Sooo good!! My idea of comfort food :)

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
Everyone loved this stuffing. I have a smaller slow cooker so I cut the recipe in half. If you do this, one bag of store bought bread cubes works beautifully. I had a 8oz pkg. of mushrooms, and just used them all (as opposed to the 6oz halving it called for). Added broth just till moistened (just like directions say!), and then carefully stirred in more broth, as needed, a couple of times during cooking process. The stuffing was perfect. It was so good I am going to use this method from now on.

Sweet and Spicy Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
Delicious. To make sure the spices get distributed evenly, I like to mix all of them together first, and then mix it in with the sweet potatoes.

Russian Green Bean and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
I love this soup. I was kinda freaked out about adding the sauerkraut, not usually a fan, but it's what makes the soup IMO. I didn't have any fresh dill so I used approx. 1 tsp. of dried. Also, I had frozen organic green beans that I just broke into pieces and I thought it worked great. Served with buttermilk biscuits, which went perfectly cuz of the slight tang from the buttermilk. Will be making this soup ALL winter!

Apple Oatmeal Crisp

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2010
Wonderful and delicious. I just cut the sugar a bit as I was using Honeycrisp apples. I followed the advice of another reviewer, and mixed the white sugar and cinnamon with the apples before putting in the baking dish. Baked 40 min. resulting in a still moist topping with a slight crunch. Will probably try baking just a little longer next time.

Lori's Famous Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2010
LOVE this recipe! In fact the whole family loved it. I used a small yellow onion, cuz that is what I had and I sauteed it along with red and orange bell pepper. Didn't add the parsley or Worcestershire sauce and doubled the Old Bay. Used the whole egg also as I didn't see myself using the yolk anytime soon and didn't want to waste it! Used panko for coating the outside and cooked them in olive oil. DELICIOUS!

Stuffed Zucchini

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2010
Great way to use zucchini! Scraped the zucchini pretty thin so I wouldn't have a cooking issue and mostly pre-cooked the sausage, along with diced onion and mushrooms. I made bread crumbs with my processor, using a hearty artisan type wheat bread. Only had 25oz jar of sauce and I don't think it needed any more. Baked for a total of 35 min, adding the mozzarella for the last 5 min. Family enjoyed it, but wants me to use a spicy sausage next time.

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2010
Yummy! Used a natural crunchy peanut butter and left out the chopped peanuts. Definitely use the full amount of hot chile paste. Goes great with Asian Tuna Patties from this site.

Five Minute Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
Love, love, love this! I made two batches, one with strawberries, and one with mangoes. They were both deliciously creamy; I can't choose which one I liked better! Both frozen fruits came in a 12oz size so I just used it all. I also only added a slightly rounded 1/4 c sugar for each batch and felt they were both plenty sweet so I will continue to use the less sugar amount. **UPDATE** I have made this many times now, mostly with mangoes. I now use plain nonfat yogurt, and only about 2 TBS of sugar. Still very delicious. I use the cream version for a special treat! Also, I only make it in my food processor; there is NO WAY my blender would be able to get it to the right consistency without it being to soft.

Garden Veggie Pizza Squares

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
I could eat this all day long! Definitely adjust the amount of the ranch dressing mix to taste so it's not too salty tasting. I made this for a appetizer party and it was the only one completely eaten!

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
These are fantastic. I use a TBS cookie scoop instead of rolling into balls. Perfectly done at 8 min.

Pumpkin Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
Yummy! I love anything with pumpkin. I freeze the pumpkin puree in ice cube trays, and then put the frozen pumpkin cubes in freezer bags. Makes it really easy for just 1 or 2 servings. When I want a smoothie I just toss in a few cubes, and add the rest of the ingredients to the taste and consistency I like.

Sesame Parmesan Zucchini

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2010
WOW, this is GOOD! I doubled the recipe, but used only 3 TBS of the olive oil. I will try cutting it even more next time. I agree with other reviewers that you only need to bake it for 10 min; maybe could have even got away with eight min. I love how quick and easy this dish is too. **Made this again and accidentally forgot the cheese, it was still delish and nobody even noticed!

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
This recipe is great, especially if you bake them like other reviewers suggested so they're all done at the same time and with less fat. I could tell from the amount of zucchini that I would need to double the recipe to feed my family of 4. Doubling it made 12 patties, 3 each, which was the perfect amount. (3 med. zucchini). I just squeezed the zucchini after I grated it. I added the bread crumbs gradually, and ended up not needing all of them. I will make these often as we all enjoyed them!

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
This frosting tastes wonderful. It is light and creamy with just the right amount of sweetness. My 14 yr old son actually made it, and whipped it up in no time. He used skim milk as we did not have any evaporated.

Mango Lassi II

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
My son loves to order a mango lassi at our fav. nepalese restaurant, but for some reason, it never occurred to me we could make them at home. Don't know why, as we are always making smoothies . Anyway, came across this recipe and it is delicious! I used frozen mango halves from Trader Joes, and used the ice also, so it was very thick. My son thought it tasted perfect, but I think the sugar could be cut a little.

Spinach Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
Delicious salad. I used a whole bag of baby spinach; didn't have the salad greens. Added sliced strawberries along with the mandarin oranges. I used organic mayo from TJs instead of Miracle Whip, and added a dash of balsamic vinegar to the dressing.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
The whole family really like the flavor. I'm kind of wimpy when it comes to spicy food so I only put in 1/8 tsp. of red pepper flakes. After tasting it, I will probably stick to that amount.

Ratatouille

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
This is SO GOOD!! Be warned, prep time is not 15 min! Between chopping all the veggies and sauteing the eggplant, it took 40 min. I seasoned every layer with Trader Joes 21 Seasoning Salute, and added basil and oregano to the eggplant when sauteing. Used baby bella mushrooms and Parmesan and Romano cheese blend. Did not cover the dish and was perfectly done at 45 min. Absolutely delicious!
