Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
4 stars because the recipe is very high in fat. I used ff sour cream and ff cottage cheese, along with 2% cheddar. Still very good, and a lot healthier.

Spam™ and Napa Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
This was a good, quick meal. I used 2 cans of Spam and a large head of Napa cabbage. I was surprised at how much the cabbage reduces in volume. I will make it again.

Stuffed Pepper Soup IV

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
This was a good starter recipe. I used 2 lbs. sausage, 2 bell peppers, and omitted the broth. I added 2 T brown sugar and 2 T cider vinegar instead of the soy sauce. Mine was more like half soup, half casserole. Family loved it - including 4 teenage boys. No leftovers.

Nanny's Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
This was very quick and easy, and everyone enjoyed it. I added some browned ground beef, but it was fine without it.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
My family really liked this, and they are not big coleslaw fans. I substituted 1/2 the sugar with Splenda, and it was fine. Also, I added a lot of celery seed (1 T) instead of poppy. I used a whole cabbage, which is cheaper, and I was tempted to just slice it thinly, but I grated it instead, and it went over better. I don't know why - it's the same thing. Go figure.

Karen A's Chocolate Dump Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
I don't know what happened. The cake turned out very dry and the chips didn't melt. I'm giving it 2 stars because my husband and sons actually finished it. I'm not one to turn down either chocolate or cake, so you know there's a problem.

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2008
This was excellent - not too peanut butter-y. I used nonfat milk, cream cheese, and Cool Whip to lighten things up a bit.

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
These were very good. I used Reisens candy, and Release foil. I thought the pecan was bland. Next time I will use a large cashew or almond.

Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2008
This was very good. I particularly liked how it firmed up the next day. I was able to trim the fat, and slice it thinly for sandwiches, or a little thicker for dinner. I do wonder if this would be a good crockpot recipe. I don't always have that much time to watch a pot.

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
I will make this again, as it has a lot of potential. I did not have a bundt pan so I used a regular baking dish, and it did not bake evenly. I also thought it was a little dry. Next time I will use a bundt pan and double the syrup.

Sauerkraut Hot Dog Topping

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
Very good. I will make this again. Instead of the pickle relish and prepared mustard, I substituted hot dog relish.

Spanakopita (Greek Spinach Pie)

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
Went over really well at a Greek-themed dinner party. I made the following adjustments: 20 oz spinach, cooked and drained, 4 eggs, 2 C feta, 1 C ricotta, 18 sheets phyllo. I used all 18 sheets, and sprayed them with cooking spray. When I made it the first time, before the party, the crust along the side was thick, and leaked a little. So, in a brilliant move, I laryered 9 sheets of phyllo into the pan, added the filling, then layered 9 more sheets on top. Then I FLIPPED OVER the baking dish. That way, I was able to fold over the top layers attractively. Then I slid the package back into the baking dish. It looked professionally done.

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
Excellent. I used regular-sized muffin tins. Everyone wanted the recipe.

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2007
I used pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon. Outstanding.

Easy Chocolate Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2007
This was easy and we all loved it. I will definitely make this again. It has the consistency of soft-serve. I read one of the reviews and lowered the temperature in the freezer. I gave it a 4 out of 5 because the taste of the syrup is very pronounced. You can tell it is made with syrup, and not baking chocolate or cocoa powder.

Homemade Salami

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
This was excellent - dry and spicy. The family liked it very much. Excellent with cheese and crackers. I would definitely slice it uniformly with my electric slicer before serving to guests, as the log shape was not very appealing.

Sweet Pepper Balsamic Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2001
I doubled the dressing, and toned it down with a little water. I used cider vinegar because I didn't have balsamic. I served the salad over rice and soy "ground beef" as a cold dinner. Everyone liked it, including the kids.
