Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2012
The first time I made these I followed the recipe as written and they were good. The second time I made these I used Lipton Savory Garlic and Herb dry soup mix (instead of the onion mix), added some Dijon mustard to the meat mixture, omitted the salt, and added unseasoned bread crumbs. We then grilled them on a charcoal grill until done and they were WONDERFUL. Topped with lettuce and tomato. The Savory Herb and Garlic dry soup mix was an excellent compliment to the turkey.

Wonderful Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
Add seasonings (garlic powder, onion powder) for a better taste and flour to keep the loaf from falling apart. The rice really absorbs the juices from the meat and becomes soggy. This is an easy fix if you work flour into the mixture. A very good meatloaf, overall. The second time making this I added diced and drained canned tomatoes and diced green peppers along with garlic and onion powder. Topped it with BBQ sauce and it was phenomenal.

Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
Nope, nope, nope. Followed recipe exactly. The sweetness from the sugar combined with the tang of the salad dressing mix left a very artificial taste to the carrots. Either use the brown sugar or use the ranch, but not both together.

Peanut Butter and Apple Sandwich

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
Holy cow, was this a tasty treat! I took the advice of one of the other reviewers and used toasted Cinnamon Raisin bread. I shredded the apple and tossed it with a little bit of honey, cinnamon and cloves for a hint of added flavor. Oh my, was this good for my late night munchies. Will try this on a toasted Cinnamon/Raisin bagel tomorrow morning.

Swedish Meatballs I

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
Sauce lacked the flavor of the Swedish Meatballs I have had in restaurants and growing up. I made this once as suggested and a second time with a lot of modifications.

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2010
y-u-m-m-y!!! I coated the apples in "apple pie spice" and added 1/2 a caramel with the apple before wrapping with the crescent roll dough. Took the advice of several other reviewers and cut the sugar amount using 3/4 c brown and 1/4 c white sugar. Dusted these with chopped pecans and served with vanilla ice cream. What an absolute treat, EVERYONE loved these. Docswife, you nailed this recipe. Thank you for sharing. It was out of this world good.

Lime-Berry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
5 star for taste and ease and this recipe is easily lightened up for less fat and calories. A very good tasting salad. I made this once as directed and a second time 'lightened up". Like most salads all the fat and calories come from the dressing. So I just lightened up the dressing and voila! Same great taste and only a fraction of the calories. Lightened up version - chicken: I did not use limeade concentrate to coat the chicken. I just used straight, squeezed lime juice. dressing: 2 tablespoons of sugar, and only 1/4 c of oil leaving the remaining ingredients for the dressing intact. Then to compensate for the liquid I removed, I added some lime juice mixed with water. I blended all ingredients together for a wonderful salad dressing with much less calories. Just a small drizzle of dressing is all that is needed. salad: to save a few more calories, I only used about an 1/8 cup of pecans and crushed them up, then dusted them on top of the salad. This is a very good recipe as is, but there was not much difference in taste once it was lightened.

Slider-Style Mini Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
I made this once following the directions of the recipe and would give it 2 stars (the mayo was just too much), but the second time I made them I modified it a little. I used 2 lbs. ground sirloin, 1 envelope onion soup mix, 1/2 tsp. onion powder, 1 tsp garlic powder and 1/2 tsp pepper. I cooked the meat and chopped until the sirloin was left in very fine crumbles. I then drained the fat and added 1 cup of shredded cheddar and only 1 tablespoon of mayo. I topped the burgers with finely chopped, sauteed onions and placed them in the oven with the buns. Once heated I topped them with thin dill slices with just a dab of mustard and ketchup. They were very good.

Loved these. The only change I made was to add a slice of aged Swiss cheese and a hard, crusty roll. Thank you, Jenny.

Quick Lemon-Berry Trifle

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
This recipe looked beautiful in the bowl, but the lemon pudding (and I love lemon) was too overpowering and artificial tasting. Would be much better with a box of vanilla added to a box of lemon pudding. In addition, the leftovers were not pleasing...a soggy, mushy, mess. I used fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries) which made this an expensive desert with less than stellar taste. I would not recommend this trifle.

Orange Fluff I

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
Wonderful, tasty, light desert. I did, however make some changes. I used 1 can of mandarin oranges, 1 can of peaches and 1 can of pineapple tidbits. I drained the fruit and then mashed it with a potato masher. I also pureed the cottage cheese in the blinder. I followed the rest of the recipe and to make it look pretty I topped it with pineapple rings and placed cherries in the center. It looked and tasted wonderful. I will make this again and again and again. A big hit, everyone loved it! Thank you for sharing this recipe.
