Calico Slaw

Reviewed: May 6, 2013
This is a tough recipe for me to rate objectively. While I don't LOVE IT, as 5 stars would indicate, I DO love how nutrient dense it is for a low calorie return. Add to that the fact Mr. LTH said he "liked the slaw" and he HATES vinegar and it'll definately get repeat action at the LTH house. I did double the vinegar, but leave the sugar the same, as I wasn't sure 2T would coat. I messed up and bought broccoli slaw mix instead of the bagged cabbage and it worked out well. I think next time I'll sub a Granny Smith for the Golden Delicious. THANKS for such a good for us recipe, sandra!

Greek Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 6, 2013
This is a nice, basic, basic, Greek style, pasta salad. I did reduce the oil a bit and still found it a bit too oily for my tastes (and I even measured the dry pasta to be sure to keep the ratio as written). We don't like olives, so I left them out, but did add some chopped banana peppers, which were a lovely addition. THANKS for the recipe, Ms. Laroche!

Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: May 5, 2013
How have I never known you can cook baked potatoes in the crock and why would I ever cook them any other way? These turned out wonderfully. I cooked them on low for about 8 hours. I used my *normal* sized round crock pot and only 2 potatoes w/no issues. This WILL get a lot of use in our house. THANKS for the recipe, Nurse Ellen!

Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan

Reviewed: May 5, 2013
Our favorite way to prepare/eat asparagus. Works well w/either cooking spray or olive oil. THANKS for the recipe, Diane!

Sauteed Mushrooms (Quick and Simple)

Reviewed: May 5, 2013
These were a nice compliment to grilled steaks. I agree that the seasoning/mushroom ratio is a bit overwhelming, but is an easy fix. These would be great used in a quesadilla! THANKS for the recipe, NolaBlu!

Night Lemon Sauza®-Rita

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2013
This was an ok cocktail, but I prefer my cocktails a bit more chilled, so I opted to shake all but the lemon lime soda over ice for an extra chill. I used True Lemon and Diet 7-Up for fewer empty calories. CHEERS, Sauza!

Easter Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
I'm always on the lookout for new makeaheadable breakfast foods for when we have overnight guests. I was intrigued by the ingredient list, and the fact this recipe was "faceless", and decided to give this a whirl. I had some mild sausage I needed to use, so I decased it and used it in lieu of the bulk pork and I subbed ham for bacon. I knew I wasn't going the cross route, so I mixed 1/2 the cheese in w/the casserole and topped it w/the other 1/2 per directions. This was tasty, but none of us tasted the chiles or the liquid smoke or red pepper sauce. While we enjoyed it, it won't replace "Amish Breakfast Casserole" as my go to. THANKS for the recipe, LisaD!

Sandy's Greek Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
While I liked that this wasn't dripping in dressing, it did seem a tad dry after it sat; I found myself savoring the tomato bites for a burst of juiciness. I chose to leave out the olives per personal preference and I used dried basil in lieu of fresh. This was a nice change of pace from the typical Italian dressing or mayo based pasta salad, for sure. THANKS for the recipe, QUIKSANDY!

Sweet and Sour Borscht Shooters

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
Delicious! These will be a dinner party soup course staple at the LTH house. I love that they are makeaheadable and delicious, to boot. I enjoy the shooter presentation and am looking forward to trying the next round w/a little vodka. THANKS for the recipe, Lillian Julow!

Brunch Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
Our guests really enjoyed this and we liked it, too, though I can't say for certain I'd make it again. I didn't love the texture of the tortillas. I appreciate that it's makeaheadable and was quite easy to throw together. I served it w/sour cream and salsa, which were a nice accompaniment. THANKS for the recipe, DBLUNCK!

Mango, Corn, and Black Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
I was surprised to find how much I enjoyed this! This is a great lighter appetizer that will become a staple in my entertaining menu. Per personal preference, I did sub fresh parsley for cilantro and I used frozen corn instead of canned. Served w/blue corn tortilla strips, this was a big hit w/our guests last evening. THANK YOU for the recipe, GMW!

Erin's Jalapeno Hummus

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
Hummus isn't really my bag, but we were having guests that I knew would dig it so we gave this a whirl. It was super easy to prepare and I didn't end up needing any additional liquid. Our grocery store didn't carry dried jalapeno (even in the specialty Mexican section), so I subbed a whole (deseeded and demembrand jalapeno). I'd make this again, particularly when we're entertaining dairy free friends. THANKS for the recipe, erin!

Drunken Berries

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
This made a wonderful addition to a Saturday morning pre-booze cruise brunch! Our liquor store doesn't carry pear liquor, so I had to call an audible and subbed pineapple vodka. Served in a champagne flute, these drunken berries were quite a hit for soon to be drunken guests. THANKS for the recipe, angela!

Savory Monkey Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
This was ok, but I was expecting more of a savory flavor burst. I followed the recipe to a "T", with the exception of halving it. If I made this again, I think I'd definately add a healthy dose of minced garlic. THANKS for the recipe, poppy!

White Spaghetti

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2013
I hate to be the initial reviewer and kick things off w/a 3 star review, but, for us, it was "ok", just as 3 stars indicates. It was certainly quick to prepare and used pantry staples, but it just had a bit of an off taste to me, kind of like Pasta-Roni. So, if you're a fan of products like Pasta-Roni, you'll love this (and that's not a slam at all, just something to give you an idea of what to expect). Otherwise, this probably isn't for you. THANKS, for the recipe, Amy R!

Johnsonville® One-Pan Italian

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2013
I have to admit, I'm shocked to be giving this 5 stars! I'm not a sausage fan and was reluctant to try this, but decided to give it a shot based on the ease of preparation and other reviews. It was ready in less than 15 minutes, from start to plating AND I went back for more. I did use the sweet sausage, as it's what I had on hand, and used 2 links, rather than the whole package (though, Mr. LTH said he would have liked more). You really can't go wrong w/this for a last minute weeknight meal. THANKS, Johnsonville!

Mint Julep Cocktail

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2013
This is a nice stiff drink. I drank a few sips, as is, then decided to add a splash of Diet 7Up for bubbles. CHEERS, Alrecipes!

Dave's BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2013
If you're using this as a replacement for bottled BBQ sauce, you're going to be disappointed. However, if you're using this for a meat baster or IN something calling for BBQ sauce, it imparts nice flavor. I used this in "Slow Cooker Baked Beans" by wannabe chefette on this site and it was a PERFECT addition to that recipe, in lieu of bottled BBQ sauce. THANKS for the recipe, Dave G!

Ham and Cheese Dip in a Bread Bowl

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2013
This was a hit at a casual dinner party at our house last night. I prepped the dip the night before and stored in the frig until time to bake. I had a hard time finding a round loaf of bread for some reason, so I had to resort to "Plan B" and hollowed a fresh loaf of Italian bread instead. Even my dad, the "cheese hater", enjoyed this dip. I found it a tad too rich, so I'll probably cut the cream cheese in 1/2 and use 1/2 sour cream if I make this again. THANKS for the recipe, Danielle MacDonald!

Slow Cooker Baked Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2013
These are great and I'm not even a baked bean fan! The only tweak I made was to use "Dave's BBQ Sauce" from here (super easy to make from pantry staples) and I do think that probably imparted a bit more flavor than a bottled sauce, so keep that in mind. I may have used a bit more ham, too, simply because it's what I had left to use. These received rave reviews from guests and multiple recipe requests. This will become a rib dinner side staple at the LTH house. THANKS for the recipe, wannabe chefette!
