Seafood Gumbo

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
I added some squid and 1 pound of turkey sausage. I also substituted black pepper for the white pepper powder (a little carton of white pepper cost 4 bucks, while black pepper costs 69 cents. See my point?). I also served long grain white rice on top of this. It was great.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
Fabulous recipe! The first time I made this, I toasted the sesame seeds and poppy seeds to bring out their flavor (definitely a must), added blue cheese, used toasted walnuts instead of toasted almonds (was out of almonds), and used 1/3 a cup of sugar. The second time I made this salad, I followed the recipe to a T. I will say that I definitely liked the first one more. Why? Well, 1/2 a cup of sugar is wayyy too much. Even with 1/3 or 1/4 cup of sugar, the dressing is sweet! Second of all, you gotta have some kind of crumbly cheese - blue and feta would work well. Third of all, you cannot refrigerate the salad dressing. I believe someone recommended that step, and in my opinion, they deserve a medal for that. If you refrigerate the salad dressing, it becomes a sugary, sesame seedy paste that is very hard to distribute evenly among the spinach leaves. Even though I prefer the salad with my variations, I still gave this recipe five stars because the original version is very tasty!

Three Berry Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
I used 1/4 cup of cornstarch and 5 cups of mixed berries (1 cup of strawberries, and the remaining four cups a mixture of blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries). Tangy, sweet, and delicious. It also tastes great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Wheat Germ Whole-Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
These pancakes are wonderful! Soft, fluffy, and light! I also added 1/4 cup of mixed berries and 2 T. of chopped walnuts to make Berry Walnut Pancakes once. Delicious!

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe! Especially the crunchy, delicious topping. My only complaint is that this recipe is a little sweet - I would probably cut back on the sugar a little. However, with less or the same amount of sugar, this is fantastic! Whole family loved it.

Grilled Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
I very rarely like my mother's food, but when she made this, I loved it! The second time I made this, I served it over linguine with the sauce the user "Donna Jean" recommended. I also served a salad and garlic bread on the side. It was great!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Nut Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
I took out the almonds and sugar for the top. I also used 3/4 a cup of cocoa powder instead of 1/2. And by the way, my muffins were done in 20 minutes, so watch out for those timers!

Greek Veggie Salad II

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
Love it! However, I use only 1/2 c. of red wine vinegar, and I still have plenty of dressing left over.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
I used 1/4 a cup of water and coated the flour mixture. For the topping, I added 1/4 a teaspoon of nutmeg, and used regular oats, as I did not have quick cooking oats. It still turned out great!

Missy's Candied Walnut Gorgonzola Salad

Reviewed: May 27, 2009
AWESOME! I have found that blue cheese works just as well as gorgonzola cheese, and that I prefer Kraft raspberry vinagrette instead of the one listed here - not saying that it's bad though! The first couple of times that I made this recipe, I followed it to a T, and it was still a give star recipe! Yum yum!

No Fail Pie Crust III

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2008
This recipe makes the absolute best pie crust I have EVER tasted. I used a food processor and frozen butter and it turned out fantastic! I was able to make two double crust pie crusts. My berry pies turned out great.

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2008
I did not use the cheese, as I did not have any and used a medium sized box of organic mixed baby greens instead of a head of lettuce. That was a good idea, as I had many varieties of lettuce, and the taste was more varied. I forgot to add the thinly sliced green onions, and it still turned out delicious! And instead of using just three pears, I used a large thinly sliced pear (with the peel intact) and a large thinly sliced Granny Smith apple. Yum yum! For candied nut mixture, the I changed two things: I added 2 T. of water and used walnuts instead of pecans. For the dressing, I added dijon mustard and used balsamic vinegar instead of red wine vinegar (I was out).

Red Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
I cut out the steak seasoning (because I didn't have it) and the sugar (following the advice of other reviewers). I also used evaporated milk instead of half and half, and it turned out fine. I also used 3 good sized garlic cloves and chopped them up. Put one of the chopped garlic cloves to boil with the potatoes and used the other two chopped cloves with the mashed potatoes. And since I needed the beaters for beating whipped cream, I mashed my potatoes in a food processor. It stayed a little lumpy, just the way I like it.

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe. The only thing I prefer to use is canola oil instead of butter. This will make the cookies oilier and heavier, but I think butter makes the cookies a little too light and dry. Still tastes deelish with butter though! Fabulous recipe. Five stars all the way.

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
What a great and simple recipe! I have found this to be very versatile - I have successfully added 1 cup of either frozen berries, frozen diced peaches, or chocolate chips without ruining the texture or taste of the coffee cake. However, it is great when plain too! This is definitely my favorite coffee cake recipe, as I can always slightly modify or add something to it and still end up with great results.

Pumpkin Cranberry Nut Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
I used whole wheat flour and some applesauce and oil instead of margarine. I also used an egg substitute, as this bread was supposed to be vegan. I also once made this bread following the recipe exactly. The bread turned out great both times!

Caramel Peanut Fudge

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
This was heavenly! I made this for Christmas for my family and they loved it! However, I will say that this is quite sweet, and if you do not have a good, strong sweet tooth, beware!

Cranberry Upside-Down Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
Beautiful, absolutely gorgeous cake! I have discovered that this cake tastes best with 1 2/3 c. cranberries instead of 1 1/4 c. Walnuts can also be substituted for pecans (though the pecans do taste better). Also, the bread part was very light (in a good way), but a little bland. So, I use a spice mixture consisting of: 1 t. cinnamon, 1/4 t. ginger, 1/4 t. nutmeg, 1/8 t. allspice, and 1/8 t. cloves. Next time, I might try the orange juice and zest addition that somebody recommended. As a plus, this is a super easy recipe!

Coconut Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
Since I love coconut a TON, I used this instead of regular pound cake in trifle. It was fantastic, and everybody raved about it. This pound cake makes an excellent layer cake - just top it with coconut cream cheese frosting, and I guarantee that people will love it! I do it all the time, and people always ask for the recipe.
