Navy Bean Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
This is an excellent and flavor filled recipe. As for the beans not being done beause of the tomatoes, just cover the dried beans with water in a stock pot, bring to a boil for two minutes, turn off the heat, cover and let soak for an hour. Drain off the water and put the beans back in the pot with the recipes ingredients and the beans will be be done in the stated time. I did add carrots and had no celery in the fridge, so I used a handful of dried celery flakes. I used leftover ham and cooked the beans for an hour with the hambone before removing the bone and adding the other ingredients. I also pureed my tomatoes with my immersion blender only because I like the creamier consistency it gives to the broth. Just tasted it and it's yummy. Can't wait for dinner tonight.

Southwestern Chicken and White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2010
I had to change this up a little bit to avoid running out to the store just for the salsa. Instead I used a can of diced tomatoes w/garlic and olive oil from Fresh and Easy that I had on hand. I added 1/4 cup of chopped pickled tamed jalapenos to the tomatoes and then hit it with my immersion blender. ( I have picky eaters and one refuses to eat any chunky tomatoes, peppers or onions.) I also added 1 Tbl. of homemade taco seasoning (from this website) to this along with the rest of the ingredients and slow simmered it on the stove top all afternoon. Amazing even with the substitution. Hurray for immersion blenders.

Berdean's Cube Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
This recipe was so good and also easy to make. I made it exactly as stated but also added some carmelized onions to it after simmering. I served it with mashed potatoes and 'Mushrooms with Soy Sauce Glaze' (from this website) and green beans. Perfect comfort food I will definitely be making again.

Herb-Stuffed Red Peppers

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
This is an excellent recipe that I almost ruined. I wanted to double it as I had 4 peppers. I only had two cans of sauce and thought we needed more sauce than that so I added an 8oz. tomato paste and another 1/4 cup of broth. It was a little too thick and sort of tasted more like meat sauce than tomatoe sauce. If I had kept the ingredients as listed intead of adding the tomato paste it would have been perfect. It was still good and even better the next day. Just stick with the tomato sauce and it will be fantastic. Will definitely be making this again according to the original recipe. Thanks for a great recipe Brenda.

Blueberry Cream Dessert

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
This was an excellent dessert. I made it for our seniors group at church, for our once a month birthday get together. Everyone loved it. We live in an extrememly hot climate, 110 in the shade at this time of year, so I wanted something light and refreshing. This was exactly what I was looking for. The only change I made was to make my own blueberry filling instead of using the canned stuff. I will definitely be making this again soon for my family. I was able to save a piece for my son to try and his exact word were, " This stuff is dangerous".

Simple Baked Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
First of all this is a very good recipe but I made a couple of mistakes when I made it. Make sure to use apples that are considered baking apples. I used HoneyCrisps because they are our favorites and they were what I had. I also used one other apple that I was given and have no idea what kind it was. It had a mushier texture though. That apple was the only one that really sofened up while baking. The Honey Crisps remained a little crisp even after an hour in the oven. I used brown sugar in place of white, that was good. And craisins in place of raisins, also good. Unless you really love cloves, leave that out. I only used 1/4 tsp and it was still too much. Next time I'll stick with cinnamon and nutmeg only. I didn't have whole milk so I used 1/2 cup of half&half, that also worked ok. I ground the nuts a little too fine I think and I used pecans because it was also what I had. All in all this is an excellent recipe and I will be making it again. I'll just make sure I use the right kind of apples from now on, leave out the cloves and use pecan halves in place of grinding them. (I used the coarse grind but it was still too fine for my taste.) I did like this recipe though. It's like apple pie with out the crust.

Cherry Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
I made this salad this morning for tonights dinner. The only thing was, I didn't have any green onions and my neighborhhod store was out also, darn. I did reduce the amount of oil to 1/4 cup as others recommended and even without the green onions this salad is very good after only a couple of hours of marinating. I then added 2 cloves of minced garlic, about 1/3 cup of crumbled feta cheese and a talespoon of minced fresh basil, as some other reviewers said they had. OMG! I'll definitely be making this often. Thank you Keren! Can hardly wait for dinner.

Baked Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
I made this a couple of times since finding it. Once for at home and again today for a pot luck dinner at church. We loved it the first time we tried it. I halved the recipe for us because it does make a lot. I cubed and cooked the potatoes in boiling water for ten to fifteen minutes instead of cooking them whole and then cubing them. Either peeled or not both ways work great. I also sauteed the onion in the same pan I cooked the bacon in after draining almost all of the bacon grease out. Thanks for a great recipe.This dish will take the place of the ones using frozen hash browns and canned soup from now on for us.

Easy Iced Coffee

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
This is such a simple and tasty recipe. You can make it so many different ways such as using decaf instant coffee, sweetener in place of sugar,add a tablespoon of chocolate syrup for iced mocha or whatever you'd like. I haven't tried adding caramel to it yet but I will. Great recipe!

Sharese's Spaghetti Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
Ok, so I had to change this a some, but I saw it on my email 'daily recipe' and it sounded too good not to make even though I was missing some ingredients. I used most everything called for, celery, onion, tomatoes, bacon, pasta, except I used rotini pasta and sauted all the vegetables in a little of the bacon drippings, just until they were still slightly crunchy. Didn't have any olives, seasoning mix or the Italian dressing so I had to use a little dried basil and oregano( I threw the basil and oregano in with the vegetables while they were cooking along with a minced clove of garlic). Mixed that in the pasta, added Kens Lite Caesar dressing and used some shredded parmesan and not the dried stuff in the bottle. I ate it warm 'cuz' it smelled wonderful and I couldn't wait to try it. Probably would have been even better if I'd had all the right stuff. I'll be making this for the next pot-luck for sure, (according to the recipe though next time). It tasted great even with the substitutions I had to make. Thanks Karinichols.

Mushrooms with a Soy Sauce Glaze

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2009
These are just plain THE BEST. I could make a whole meal out of just these mushrooms. But I did serve them over Honey Lime Pork chops from this site. They made the meal.

Fresh Peach Cobbler II

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2009
I thought this was ok but my son didn't care for it at all. The cake was more like a shortcake than cobbler. Also for my taste, it was way too sweet. Maybe my peaches were sweeter but I would cut back on the sugar if I tried it again. I tried it with vanilla ice cream, whipped topping and also with a little half and half poured over. The half and half worked the best as the ice cream and whipped topping just added to the sweetness.
