Pineapple Cracker Spread

Reviewed: May 9, 2009
This is probably my favorite recipe I've gotten off this site! It couldn't be more perfect- it's creamy, smooth, sweet and delicious! The longer it chills, the better it tastes! I wrote the recipe down, lost it, and had to come back for it. :) It's a keeper!

White Chip Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
I can't rate this a 5 because I changed one of the main ingredients...but these were DELICIOUS! I used peanut butter chips instead of white chocolate chips. I LOVE these chips (I could eat them by themself all day long!) and adding them to this recipe made it perfect! Thanks for a great recipe! :)

Citrus Chocolate Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
I actually thought these were kind of gross. I'm not sure why mine seemed to turn out so much differently than the other reviewers because this has been rated pretty favorably. I followed the recipe exactly and they cooked for just the right amount of time...but the flavor was just not what I was expecting from a chocolate cupcake.

Strawberry-Sauced Crunchy Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
I halved this recipe and other than that, followed it to a T. I'm not sure what all the excitement is about, b/c everyone seems to like this recipe. I did not like it AT ALL. The flavors did not mix very well and the sauce was too liquidy, too sweet.

Salmon Steaks with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
I used fresh caught salmon and that was good...but the recipe for the sauce uses WAY too much milk. We enjoyed the flavor, but I can't rate this recipe 5 stars if following the recipe exactly gives you less than desirable results. I think next time I'll at least cut that in half, but I am keeping this recipe for future use.

Peanut Butter Cake V

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
This cake was AMAZING. I made it for my grandfather's birthday because I know he likes peanut butter pie. The only thing I did different was add chocolate chips on the top, and it was delicious. I did have to bake it about 10-15 minutes longer than the recipe suggested. The cake was very moist and not too much peanut butter state, which was great b/c I generally hate a strong peanut butter taste. My family LOVED this recipe, especially my boyfriend who's hard to please with cake recipes! :) I will DEFINITELY make this again!

Barbecue Ham Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
I can't give this a five because I changed it so much! But with my alterations...i give it a 5! I was looking for a quicker recipe, so I used refrigerated pizza dough instead. The bbq sauce I used was raspberry chipotle, and I just put however much I wanted rather than sticking with any measurements. Lastly, the cheese I used was Fontina (it was on sale!) instead of Gouda, still mixed with the mozzarella cheese. With all of these alterations...it was magnificent!! Will definitely make again :)

Cheese Ravioli with Three Pepper Topping

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
This was a very good recipe and a refreshing change from the normal ravioli we're used to making. I did make a few changes...I used about 1 1/2 c.'s of broth b/c 2 just seemed like too much. I also thickened the broth with some cream as another reviewer suggested. Because I only had frozen chopped green peppers in the house, that's what I used. I'll be keeping this in the recipe box for future use. Thank you for the recipe!!

Fire-Roasted Tomato and Spinach Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
Delicious! I noticed that in many of the reviews people were adding spices to make it more flavorful...and in some hotter! I never use fire roasted tomatoes, and these were HOT! Or maybe it was the hot red pepper flakes I put on it :) Either way, very good recipe and my only change was to add an onion. Very good!

California Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
LOVED THESE! We felt like we were eating at Panera Bread but sitting at our own kitchen table! I couldn't find Focaccia bread in the grocery store, so I bought an italian loaf and just sliced it into sandwich size to grill. I also topped the veggies with southwest seasoning and put them in foil so they didn't fall through the grill. Either way, this will definitely be a regular in our house now! Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

Bountiful Garden Zucchini Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
With my modifications, 5 stars. I don't use tomatoes but cover them in salsa instead. Because I have the liquid from the salsa, I also don't add the milk into the sauce mixture. It comes out very thick - but I just mix all of that into the zucchini mixture and it tastes wonderful when it comes out of the oven!

Tuna Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2013
Great recipe! I followed the recipe exactly, except I used homemade italian dressing instead of store-bought. My mayonnaise was Hellman's Light. Next time I make it, I will likely add more celery, but as written this is delicious! Hubby and I both loved it.

Groovy Green Smoothie

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2012
I loved this - my first green smoothie and it was delicious! I only rated it a 4 b/c I made so many changes from the recipe. I used 1/2 banana instead of whole, almond milk in place of yogurt, and added a plum b/c it needed to be eaten soon! This was very good!

Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2012
This was a great recipe to make in a large quantity (I made 20 servings), but the end result was really kinda bland. I would think though that if I used a sweeter mayo, such as Hellman's Mayonnaise, it may have had a better result. I used Kraft Mayonnaise with Olive Oil, which I normally prefer...but it just doesn't have the same taste sometimes. I ended up adding a lot of celery seed just to sweeten it up some, and I was much more happy with it after that.

Apple Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
The pie tasted GREAT, especially with the addition of raisins and walnuts. My only complaint is that there was a lot of water left in the pie pan. I don't know if that's the kind of apple I used? I had a lot of golden delicious left from an apple-picking expedition that were very good. The crumb topping was delicious as well!

Bake Sale Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
20 minutes in my oven burned the crust...and continuing with the recipe just turned the whole crust black. The lemon topping was also terrible looking - I would NOT recommend making this recipe the same as listed!!! It's a waste of your time and ingredients. The recommendations many refer to where you double the topping is a great one - that worked perfect the 2nd time around! Thanks to that reviewer!!!

Corn Zucchini Skillet

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2009
I loved this! I had a few changes...when I cut open my summer squash it didn't look too good, so I threw it out and replaced it with red and green bell peppers. Delicious!

Pumpkin Pie Spice II

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2014
I always make seasonal "spices" like this (that require a combination of spices) myself. That way I only have what I need on hand and I'm not buying something I technically already have. Thanks for the recipe.

Slow Cooker Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2014
I absolutely loved this recipe! I've been looking for a good homemade baked beans recipe, and I finally found it!! I have a limited "convenience food" diet because of an allergy to artificial colorings...and EVERY can of baked beans has caramel coloring in it. I did not use any ham or bacon in the recipe as I wanted them to be MSG-free...so I did salt them to make up for that difference. I also soaked the beans overnight in water as another reviewer recommended to avoid boiling them, which also made these quicker to make! And for the maple syrup, I used half blue agave syrup, half real maple syrup that we always buy in northern Michigan. Mmmmmm!!! I first made them last Saturday and I've already been asked to make them again this weekend. Thanks for a great recipe!
