Herb Oyster Crackers

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
I haven't had these for a long time and enjoyed making them again! Used only about 1 1/2 pkgs of crackers and added a couple cups of pretzel rings before mixing with the oil/seasonings. Then I baked the snack mix at 250 degrees for about 10 minutes. The saltiness of the pretzel rings was a nice addition to the crackers. Because of baking the mix, I used the full amount of oil.

Sauteed Apples and Raisins

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
This may be considered a breakfast food item, but I enjoyed it very much as a dinner side with soup. I used the entire amount of brown sugar and didn't think it was too sweet. Maybe the type of apples used makes the difference. And I used dark raisins and I think that using craisins as someone suggested would be nice, too. I like cinnamon and added about 1/4 tsp.

Macaroni and Cheese with Bacon and Onions

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
Delicious. I am rating this based on the addition of the bacon and onions as I made baked macaroni and cheese from another AR recipe and then just heated the leftovers on the stove, sauteed the onions & added the bacon and thyme. I did add a bit of balsamic vinegar & brown sugar to the onions as they sauteed to add a slight sweet/sour flavor.

Veggie Egg Scramble

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
I chose not to use the wine, instead mixed the shredded cheddar cheese with the eggs and poured the mixture over sauteed onions and chopped mushrooms. Didn't have fresh basil, so just added some dried to the veggies as they were cooking.

Butterscotch Pudding I

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
This tasted wonderful - I LOVE brown sugar - but unfortunately I ended up with a not-completely-smooth texture even though I used a whisk during cooking. Another thorough whisking off the heat took care of that problem, and the pudding was just the right thickness while it was warm. After it cooled...it was much TOO thick. So I guess the amount of cornstarch used depends on whether or not you plan to eat this warm or store in the refrigerator. Next time I would follow the same cooking method I use for vanilla & chocolate puddings - mix the milk into the dry ingredients and cook until thick, THEN add the egg (tempered with a little of the hot milk) and continue cooking for another minute or so. Adding all of that butter seemed unnecessary - half of it was plenty for me.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
Just the recipe we were looking for...perfect for us with a few changes - only 1 pound of meat but three cans of beans: 1 pork & beans, 1 chili beans, and 1 kidney beans - more sugar - and only chili powder to taste because of the seasoned chili beans. Half as much tomato juice & a can of undrained petite diced tomatoes. The rest of the ingredients (sauce, spices, veggies) as listed.

Cream Of Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
I rated this 4 based on the fact that I added to the recipe. I chopped carrots and green onions very fine and sauteed them briefly before making the roux. I omitted the sugar - couldn't quite understand adding that much sugar to a soup like this - but used poultry seasoning for additional flavor. I like this and it's an excellent use for leftover cooked chicken. So rich and thick that a cup alongside a sandwich makes a filling meal.

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
Baby carrots cut in half lengthwise work well and shorten the cooking time s a bit.

Sweet and Spicy Popcorn

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
I liked the flavor. The only change I made in the recipe's directions was to melt butter, mix in the spices, and drizzle over the popcorn.

Macaroni and Cheese - Baked

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
I intended to make the original recipe minus the bread crumb topping, then discovered the new feature AR just added to view custom recipes, so saved this one to my recipe box to make again. The thing I liked best about this recipe was that it is tasty macaroni and cheese that doesn't use processed cheese. For my future reference - I halved the cheese sauce and used 2 cups of uncooked pasta shells. I also added several Tbsps of parmesan and used Colby Jack instead of cheddar. Some shakes of paprika for a little extra color and zip.

Balsamic Dijon Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
I liked the flavor of this dip but doubt that those who don't love vinegar would agree because the flavor was quite strong. I added some heaping spoonsful of mayo but even then I found it WAY too thin to use as a spread and it's not a very appealing visual presentation. I also added honey to take away some of the sharpness. Perhaps using this as a honey-mustard salad dressing would be a better idea.

Tim Perry's Soup (Creamy Curry Cauliflower and Broccoli Soup)

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
I had a few mushrooms that I had to use so added them too. I sauteed the sliced mushrooms with the onion before adding to the other veggies cooked in the chicken broth. (I added the curry to the onion/mushroom mixture and let it saute a bit as well.) A very pleasant, comforting soup.

Ratatouille Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
I bought a large eggplant to make eggplant parmesan but then wasn't sure what to do with the amount remaining...this recipe worked perfectly. I did cube the eggplant and yellow squash into approximately the same size pieces, used sliced mushrooms, chopped onions, diced sweet red bell pepper, and quartered roma tomatoes from this year's garden. Used a few squirts of ketchup instead of tomato paste because I didn't want to open a can... The other addition I made was halved black and green olives. This is a great way to use a variety of leftover veggies and with the pasta and cheese made a very filling meal even for a non-vegetarian.

Italian Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
A perfect marinade when there's no time or no desire to mix one from "scratch". I used Kraft Tuscan House Italian Dressing & Marinade. Can't see why the additional oil would be necessary, though. Very good with brown sugar & butter mashed sweet potato.

Veronica's Apple Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
5 for flavor, 5 for being quick & easy. I halved the recipe, but used 1 egg so needed to add a couple of extra tsps of flour.

Eggplant Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
Even though the flavor that comes from breaded & fried eggplant is missing from this recipe, this is my favorite recipe because it's quick, easy, and healthy. I used canned Italian-style diced tomatoes and Italian-blend cheese instead of mozzarella. Also added a few dollops of Ricotta cheese on top of the eggplant slices.

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
I followed jmarie's advice and tried this chili AND liked it! I followed the directions exactly except for using rinsed and drained Great Northern Beans that I did not mash. Used a little less broth and the chili was thick enough for my liking. Also did not add the cheese to the soup but used it as a garnish on top and stirred it into the individual servings.

Winter Blossom's Often Requested Ham Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
Ham salad has always been a favorite of mine as a sandwich or cracker spread. But I've never added brown mustard and that makes it especially tasty.

Linguini with Broccoli and Red Peppers

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
A good combination of veggies and an excellent side with sweet and sour meatballs. I omitted the parmesan, but if I was eating this as a light entree, I'd certainly use it.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs II

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
Very tasty - an excellent sweet/sour sauce. I made some slight changes to the meatballs: only 1/2 of a large red onion, chopped VERY fine (almost like grated) and 3/4 cup of breadcrumbs. I used only 1/2 cup brown sugar in the sauce and next time may decrease the vinegar a bit, too. I made 15 meatballs from the recipe and used 9 for the sweet/sour sauce, will freeze the extra six to have with tomato pasta sauce and spaghetti.
