Spicy Sweet Potato Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2005
This is delicious! I used a small onion instead of large, minced jalapenos from a jar, lime juice instead of lemon, half mayonaise and half sour cream, and added two stalks of chopped celery and 4 chopped hard boiled eggs. It was a big hit - I'll make again and again!

Nutty Coconut Fish

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
I mixed the dry spices with the wet ingredients instead of dry, and I used panko crumbs instead of bread crumbs. Simply delicious.

Quick and Easy Ketchup

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
What a great recipe! I didn't have apple juice concentrate, so I subbed 1 Tbl honey and added 1/2 cup minus 1 Tbl of water (in addition to the 3/4 cup in the recipe). I increased the vinegar slightly to add a little acidity that I thought might be missing without the apple juice conc (I used 4 tsp of apple cider vinegar in place of 1 Tbl white vinegar. And I used smoked paprika in place of regular. This is a keeper!

Tofu Turkey I

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
I made a reduced-size recipe of this as a trial run before Thanksgiving for my vegetarian daughter. I absolutely loved it, and I didn't think it was terribly difficult. Because I only used 1.5 pkgs of tofu, I couldn't really shape it into a turkey, so instead I sprayed a sheet of foil with PAM and spread the drained tofu on top, then covered with stuffing and rolled up to encase the stuffing with tofu. I baked the roll in the foil with all of the sauce for the full time; I didn't brush it later. I think I'll wrap it in foil the next time, too, to keep it moist and to crisp the outside. One thing I'll change - crumble the tofu finer, or even process some in the food processer to get a firmer more compressed "turkey" layer.

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
I wasn't crazy about the beans mixed with the taco seasoning. It kind of overpowered everything. I served this for a party, and for noshing the next day, and I still have more left.

Dinosaur Eggs

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
These were gross. I made them for a family event; I thought the kids would love them. I bought the egg-shaped jello molds, and gelled gummy dinosaurs in the middle of the eggs. The kids wouldn't touch them. I ate one, then threw them out. Nice idea, but I'd have to do something different if I tried these again.

Habanero Hellfire Chili

I used this as a base for my award winning chili. It won both the best chili and the hottest chili awards.

Garlic Feta Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
Delicious, and very garlic-y. I served it at a party. Good on Triscuits, veggies, pita, chicken . . . probably just about anything.

Bourbon Sausage

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
I have to base my review on my friend's comments. I made a double recipe, but they were gone before I got to try them. I did cut the sugar in half.

Winter Blossom's Often Requested Ham Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
At first the salt was overpowering, so I added a half teaspoon of sugar. Not sure if that tempered it, or if it just got better with age, but three days later I can't stop eating this. I loved ham salad as a kid, and I hadn't found a great recipe - until now! Thanks!!!

Texas Coleslaw

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
YUM! I wanted a quick coleslaw to go with chicken quesedillas - this is it. I doubled the lime juice, used a bit of chopped sweet onion instead of green, and omitted the radishes because I didn't have any. I could eat this as the main course, it's that good!

Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2012
Delicious! I used Rioja wine, added peach schnapps substituted fresh strawberries in place of the fresh orange, skipped the added sugar and used ginger ale instead of carbonated water. Next time, I would skip the peach schnapps and lemonade concentrate, too - just didn't need that much sweetness for my taste.

In-a-Pinch Ketchup

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
I've made this a few times but wasn't satisfied with the taste or consistency - way too sweet, and kind of grainy. Today I tried "Quick and Easy Ketchup" from this site - what a difference! Much less sweet, great flavor, and doesn't call for any cooking!

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
This was quick and delicious! I used boneless skinless chicken thighs cut into 1/2" cubes and sauted them along with the onions and garlic. I couldn't find canned tomatillas, so I substituted 8 oz of salsa verde (green tomatilla salsa). I also substituted two 10 oz. cans of RO*TEL tomatoes for the canned tomatoes and chilis. Excellent light supper for a cool Autumn evening!

Tofu Lasagna

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
This was so simple and healthy, yet every bit as delicious as my standard lasagne. I used whole wheat lasagne, 16 oz of tofu, a 12 oz jar of Bertolli sauce plus a 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes, and 1 tsp of Italian seasoning (plus a handful of fresh basil from the garden). I used colby jack in place of mozzerella, because that's what I had, and I used more than the recipe called for just to cover the pies. I added about 3/4 lb of cooked ground meat to satisfy my husband, then I made it into two 12x9 pans. It was great!!!

Spicy Sweet Potato Soup

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
Yumm! Like others suggested, I microwaved the potatoes first. One suggestion - mine turned out kind of thick, it would be helpful to have a more specific measure for the potatoes - in weight rather than size, for example.
