Chocolate Pretzels

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2002
I wasn't able to find the round pretzels either - as I saw some other reviewers note. I used the square 'waffle' kind instead and still ended up with a tasty result. Do be sure to note the fact that the kisses keep their shape when melted so don't wait for them to 'puddle' onto the pretzel. When they are shiney take them out of the oven and press the M&M into the kiss to mold it to the pretzel. I'm sure the round pretzel would be cuter, but the chocolate adhered fine to the square pretzels and tasted just as good!

Spicy Pretzels

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2002
I didn't find these pretzels to be spicey or frankly very good at all. They were saltier but no real added flavor. Perhaps more spice powder would work but I don't think I'll be trying this one again.

Santa Fe Rice Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2002
I served this yummy salad at a family barbeque and it got great reviews (and requests for the recipe). Very easy to prepare.

Oven Baked Tempeh

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2002
I've made this recipe twice now and enjoyed it both times. The first time I tried it I made a LOT of substitutions but found it to be a great (and forgiving recipe). I was true to the recipe the second time with the exception of using a can of diced tomatoes rather than fresh. While I think meat eaters would enjoy this one, I don't think anyone woul be fooled into thinking there was actually chicken in the dish (then again I haven't eaten meat in over 10 years!)

Field Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2001
This was a big disappointment. I think the cheese was the problem. Too strong and overpowered the salad. I tried it on dinner guests and I could tell they didn't like it. Won't make this one again.

Cheesy Potato and Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
Good stuff and quite simple to make. I used vegetable broth to make it vegetarian. I had all the ingredients on hand except for the gravy mix so I did a quick search online and found one. Basically it was flour and a few spices but it worked just fine. I used a mail scale to get the measurement but I'm sure that you could go with about 3-4 tablespoons and up the amount as needed to thicken. Great recipe and easy to modify to suit tastes or available ingredients!

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2000
I made these little fellows for a cocktail party - they brought giggles from the guests and everyone wanted the recipe. They're quite easy to make, the cream cheese will hold together any 'errors'. I used baby carrots and they worked out fine. Definitely give this fun recipe a try.

Fudge Bonbons

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2001
I found this recipe sounded better than the results tasted. The 'fudge' dough tastes like the flour so it's more of a cross between fudge and brownie. I'm not sure how this could be done in 19 minutes...took me over an hour!

Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: May 28, 2001
I substituted refried black beans which worked well. I didn't end up with 7 layers but still enjoyed the result. This even better reheated since the tortillas soften and the flavors blend.

Baked Potato Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
I'll give this a generous 3 - I can't imagine this recipe as is without a LOT of additions for flavor. I added garlic powder, onion powder, fresh ground pepper, 6 oz of shredded sharp cheddar (still kinda blah) then sauted some onions and threw them in with salt and more pepper and then added about 1.5 cups of corn. The good news is that soup allows for a lot of 'tweeking' but the recipe as it is with no changes is way overrated. Be prepared to experiment and you'll probably get something you like - otherwise be prepared for hot starchy water. :-)

Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2010
As I was preparing this I thought there was no way it would be interesting or flavorful but it turns out to be both! My 3 year old son LOVED it so it's definitely on the family dinner rotation now. I didn't have pine nuts and chose not to buy them at $5.99 for a little jar but otherwise I followed the recipe as written and will again next time.

Lentil Loaf

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2002
This was OK as far as lentil loafs go but quite crumbly. I'm not sure the dry soup flavoring worked too well. I may try again with tomato soup mix instead.

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
Wow....I was understandably skeptical but this was a great way to cook up kale! I used parchment and sprinkled on olive oil and adobo seasoning. I didn't measure anything I just spread the kale til the pan was covered. My husband was as amazed as I was at how yummy the result was!

Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2002
Super easy and super yummy. You can vary the crumb topping if you don't have the exact ingredients listed on hand. I rarely eat fish and hardly ever cook it myself (always seem to mess it up when I do!) but this recipe is as easy as it is tasty!

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
Very nice! Easy, vegetarian and yummy. I used a can of tomatoes (drained) to be lazy and fat free half and half. My basil was fresh from my garden so there was a lot of flavor. A dollop of sour cream and a tiny basil leaf for a garnish and it looked like an all day soup in under 45 mins!

Southern Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
Eh. Just ok. It didn't have much cheese flavor (I even used extra sharp) and was overall bland (I even used a little extra cayenne). I don't recall ever having 'southern' mac and cheese so perhaps this is representative of what that dish should taste like. But if that's the case I guess I'm not a fan of southern macaroni and cheese!

Imitation Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2002
What a fabulous recipe!?! I served this to meat eating guests and they all liked it. I crumbled fresh white bread (the heavy Pepperidge Farms white) in place of the dry crumbs listed and it was very moist and delicious - definitely a "keeper"!!

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: May 28, 2001
This is really good and quick. I even skipped the pecan and parsley and substituted seasoned bread crumbs - still yummy!

Apple Dumplings I

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2001
I tried this recipe out on dinner guests and it was a big hit - I wasn't too fond of the 'douginess' but my guests like that the best! Certainly quick and easy if you like this type of desert.
