Fresh Strawberry Pie I

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
This was an awesome recipe!!! The only thing I would change, like other reviewers, is to cut back a little on the sugar. I LOVE sweet things, and even though it didn't taste bad in the least, it was just a tad much. I even used sugar free jello, but I probably would cut the sugar back to maybe a 1/2 C. I also used a homemade gram cracker crust. I used 1 package of gram crackers, 1/2 cup of ground walnuts, 1/3 C. Sugar, cinnamon to taste, and 6 tablespoons of melted butter. There might have been some salt in there somewhere too, but I can't remember. Mmmmmmmm. . . Goooooood!!!!!!

Cranberry Crumb Pie by EAGLE BRAND®

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
MMMMMMmmmmmm!!! What a delicious recipe. I didn't have nuts so I substituted that with oatmeal (about 1/2 cup) and cut it in with the flour. Oh yeah, I also didn't have corn starch so used 2 T. of flour for substitute.

Kim's Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
I really liked this macaroni salad. Was simple but tastey. Instead of cider vinegar I used plain white vinegar. I would suggest adding this last if you don't use vinegar often so you can adjust to you own taste (start small and work your way up). I also used Light Miracle Whip instead of Mayo. Cut's drastically down on calories and adds a bit of zing. I added a bit of green pepper, extra onions, and just a smidgen more or salad dressing. Turned out great.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
Great recipe. I liked the "cakey" texture to the cookies, but used the batter to make variations of the cookies. I put little drops of the batter on a cookie sheet (like doghnut holes) and once they were baked put them into a bag with some powdered sugar. Mmmm. . . Next I mixed in some vanilla chips into the left over batter and made minature bundt cakes. They all turned out pretty well.

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2008
Ok recipe. The cookies were not shiny (possibly due to my part) but I was hoping for a more chocolately-peanutbuttery flavor. I would add more chocolate next time (and maybe just a tad more peanut butter - I love the stuff).

Sourdough Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
People complained of a dry cake and not enough chocolate flavor, so to remedy that I substitued canola oil for the shortening, used approximately a whole cup of baking cocoa, added a package of chocolate pudding, added 1-2 T (or more, not sure how much I put in) of instant coffee granuales to enhance the chocolate flavor. Cake was EXCELLENT. Was very moist and good chocolately flavor.

Grandma's Gingersnaps

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
Excellent recipe. I used canola oil rather than margarine, but everything else I kept the same. Was DELICIOUS!!! Co-workers kept raving about how good they were and how "picture perfect" they turned out.

Baked Tofu Bites

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
This was a good recipe. I didn't have any sesame seeds so I left those out. I was hoping for the coating to carmelize more so it would be more chewy, but it turned out ok.

Barbecue Tofu Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
This is the first tofu recipe I've tried and it turned out pretty good. I also put some Mrs. Dash on the "burger" before I put the barbeque sauce on it.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
Wow! This recipe is totally a keeper! My secret ingredient is the addition of 1/2 t. of pumpkin pie spice. Instead of the 2 cups of white sugar, I used 1 c. white and 1 c. brown. When it called for vanilla, I only had the cheap stuff, so I always use an extra tablespoon whenever it called for it. Instaed of cream cheese in the frosting, I used the Neufatchel cheese which has a 1/3 less fat.

Chilled Cantaloupe Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2008
Sorry to say that I was not a fan of this recipe. I was looking forward to it, but it didn't turn out quite how I imagined it. The cinnamon was too strong and the consistency was not the greatest either. I let it sit over night to see if it would get any better, but it didn't. I had to dump it all out, hence the one star rating.

Gobble Up Granola Snacks

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
This recipe is one of the best I've ever had, though like everyone else, I've made several changes. I actually did not have any rice crispy cereal, so I have at times substitued it for bran flakes or even puffed wheat rice (my personal favorite). I also found I liked a slightly higher ratio of the "sticky" ingredients. I also substitued the cornstarch for honey and added a little bit more vanilla. I have made this recipe over and over again, and always get great reviews from the tasters.

Corrigan's Minestrone

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
Was a pretty delicious soup. I did make a few changes. I left out the celery (I'm not a fan) and the potatoes (helps cut down on the carbs). In place of the potatoes I substitued an 14.5 oz. can of green beans (reserve about 1/2 c. juice). I also substitued the vegetable broth with just plain old chicken broth, and added the reserved green bean juice. I put dried herbs in because I didn't have fresh ones. Just feel it out to your own tastes. I would recommend putting the kidney beans in a little later because they were a little mushy, and cooking the noodles separate till al dante or just a little before that so when you add it to the soup, they are just right. And for my secret to the soup, I add a little red pepper flakes to give a nice heat to the aftertaste.

Lemon Bread

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
I LOVE lemon flavors, and this recipe was no different. It was an EXCELLENT recipe; one that I would make again and again for any occasion. In fact, I'm going to bring it with me to work tomorrow so my colleagues can enjoy it as well. I made some very slight adjustments. I didn't have any lemon peel, so I left that out, and increased the lemon juice to a 1/4 of a cup. Highly recommend this recipe!
