Bologna Salad Sandwich Spread I

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2014
Pretty good. Reminds me of when I was a kid. I adored ham salad and sometimes my mother would make it out of bologna. I processed mine a little finer than what appears in the picture. I actually didn't mean to, I wanted it a little chunkier, but my food processor has a mind of its own and decided to pulverize it within a matter of seconds. So it's more like smooth spread than a chunky spread. But the taste is still delicious. Going to take a bologna salad sandwich with me to work tomorrow. Just be careful when reading the recipe. "Desired amount" of salad dressing and "desired amount" of pickle relish should probably be up there in the ingredient list because it appears a few peeps assumed you use a whole jar of dressing and whole cup of relish. This is not the case, as stated in the instructions. Unless, of course, you like it that way ;) I used light Miracle Whip and turkey bologna, as I watch fat and calories.

Shredded Potato Salmon Cakes

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2013
These were good (left out the capers because I can't stand them) but I have to admit, the presence of the potato wasn't really noted. I think next time I'll go ahead and cook the potato and have it on the side.

Chicken and Biscuit Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2013
This was REALLY good. However, I should note that I went with another reviewer's suggestion of using a cup of half & half (1/4 of the broth ingredient) to 3 cups chicken broth. Made it rich and creamy, which is the way I like this kind of dish. I noticed another reviewer's comment that her biscuits soaked up all of the 'gravy' but also noticed that she said she used drop biscuits. I would like to point out that using drop biscuits *will* soak up the gravy, which is possibly why this recipe suggests rolled biscuits instead. I would go with the biscuits the recipe states or make your biscuits separate rather than baking them with the chicken mixture. This would also be great over mashed potatoes or toast.

Tater-Dipped Eggplant

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2012
Fabulous! I cut mine into thick chunks and only used a tablespoon or two of butter to cut fat and calories and it still came out nice and crispy. I'm going to save this recipe because it would be a great way to prepare the eggplant for Eggplant Parmesan without having to fry it first.

Salmon Patties II

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2011
These are fabulous. I've been searching for a really good - but simple - salmon patties recipe because every time I make them, they fall apart. The self-rising flour is a great idea because it's much finer than regular flour and it holds the salmon and the egg together perfectly. All I added was a little salt & pepper and served them with pea sauce. If you think they're too bland (I think they're perfect as is) then simply add your own spices to taste. This simple, yet delicious recipe is a winner.

Green Pea Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2011
Fabulous sauce. The picture I added was of the sauce over tuna patties. It's also great over salmon.

Shrimp Egg Foo Yung

Reviewed: May 20, 2011
Very good recipe, but you do NOT need the extra salt in the gravy. The sodium from the chicken broth and the soy sauce is quite sufficient.

Pineapple Pizzas

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
These are absolutely fantastic. And a little hint to those who didn't like it... ummm... it helps if you like pineapple in the first place. Why attempt to make a 'pizza' with something you don't like? That makes your review a slightly moot point, I hate to say. However, this recipe is tastier with jarred pizza sauce instead of tomato paste. Tomato paste is just a little too harsh for the sausage/pineapple combination. And if you want it a little more like a Donatos Hawaiian, sprinkle some cinnamon on it as well. Very good and thanks for the idea!

German Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
Very good. I made this as instructed, using the lasagna noodles and the ingredients and amounts called for and it came out perfect. The only thing I did different was I took another reviewers suggestion and used some swiss cheese. Did give it a nice bite, but I think it gave it too MUCH of a bite. The sauerkraut alone does that. Just depends on your tastes, I guess. I personally don't think this recipe NEEDS any cheese. The sauce in itself makes the dish nice and creamy. So next time I make it, I'll probably leave the cheese out completely.

Almond Celery Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
I love this recipe and make it often. I subscribe to Taste of Home and have had this recipe for some time now and when I found it here on this site, I just had to add a comment about how delicious it is. Even those who aren't fond of celery may eat this and if you're a true celery lover, you'll DEFINITELY love this one.

Great Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2007
I made this cake for Halloween, but I didn't use the recipe stated for the icing, I used 2 cans of the Betty Crocker cream cheese frosting instead and it came out wonderful. The flavor of cake I used was spice cake. Very cute!

Eggplant Tomato Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2007
Very tasty. I slipped some sliced avocado in between the eggplant and tomato to give it a bigger nutritional boost. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for the recipe!

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
Very tasty. I 'fried' them in nonfat cooking spray rather than using oil to cut down on fat and calories. In my opinion, the Old Bay Seasoning is the key ingredient in this recipe to making them taste similar to crab cakes. I love crab cakes and, of course, zucchini can't take the place of that taste, but combined with the Old Bay it came pretty close. Will definitely keep this one and make again.

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
For those of you whose pitas didn't puff - I've made this recipe 3 times. My first 2 times were successful. The 3rd time none of them puffed. I looked at the date on my yeast and it was old. Old yeast will definitely prevent the dough from rising and puffing correctly. However, I was able to salvage a few of them. The ones that were soft enough to work with, I cut them in half. Then, using a sharp knife, I very carefully worked the knife down inside of the pita to split it open. Some of them I could do this with. The others that remained flat and unworkable, I saved them to use for homemade personal-sized pizzas. Just cover them with your favorite pizza sauce and favorite toppings and put them in the oven until hot and the cheese is melted. Very delicious pizza crust! So even the pitas that don't puff can be used for yummy things. Editing to add one word of mention: DO NOT roll these pitas out on an oiled surface. It will cause them to go flat. I sprayed my table with nonstick cooking spray to prevent the pitas from sticking to the table. I had to throw out the entire batch, they were oily and the dough stretched out horribly when trying to remove them from the table. My next batch I rolled out on a lightly floured surface and they came out perfect.

Ultimate Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2007
I made these and they came out just fine. Made them for a Sunday dinner one week and everybody loved them. Once you bring the chicken out of the buttermilk, dip it in some beaten egg to get the coating to stick better to it.
