The John Collins Cocktail

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2013
I gave this a try when I saw LTH's photo! I had to make some changes according to what I had on hand! I subbed pink champagne for the club soda and a raspberry for the cherry. I also doubled the simple syrup because unlike LTH, I like sweet drinks! This was VERY good! John Collins can come to my party anytime! =D

Corn on the Grill

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
I made this tonight and it was PERFECT! It is tender, smokey, sweet and spicy...very much a Tex Mex flavor, which I love! I tweaked it similar to what Jill did by soaking the corn and grilling it with the husks! Instead of using the seasoned butter on the corn AFTER it was cooked, I peeled back the husks and brushed it on and then I relpaced the husks and grilled on low flame for 30 minutes...turning constantly! The husks will flame up while grilling, but thats what gives the corn that great smokey flavor! I didn't use the lime juice because I didn't have any. I will use this recipe for grilled corn from now on!

Out of this World Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
This was very good! I made it as written except I used regular broccoli...I couldn't find the alien kind! And I used all wagon wheel, no spiral. I may add some green onion next time...just for more flavor! I did use the black olives, as suggested, and it went very well with this salad!

Fruit Pizza Trifles To Go

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
Okay...I just tried this and LOVED it! I ended up using peaches, strawberries and blueberries! And I scaled it down to one serving...just for me! I didn't have any sugar cookies, so I used strawberry Cheerios! This was VERY good! Great recipe LTH!

Beer Margaritas

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
This is the best margarita I ever had! I made some changes after reading the reviews. I used 1/2 Sprite and 1/2 water...I also used lemonade concentrate instead of limeade. and I used a light beer. I put the mixture in the freezer for a few hours to make it slushy. This is the perfect blend of sweetness, with just a hint of tartness! Perfect!

Crescent Pizza Pockets

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2011
I made these exactly as written, but I used the reduced fat crescent rolls! I just shaped them into domes because it was so much easier! These were VERY good, as I knew they would be because I love anything made with crescent rolls! These were like little fluffy pillows of pizza goodness!

Kale Chips

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
I make my kale chips the same way except I add a little apple cider vinegar. These are so good! It tastes like broccoli to me! And it just melts in your mouth! BTW...I loved your 'What's Cooking' segment! =)

Original NESTLE® TOLL HOUSE® Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2011
I always use Toll House chocolate chips in my cookies! I love walnut chocolate chip cookies! This is a great recipe as is, but I modified it to suit our tastes. I used half the butter, salt and sugar. I formed them into cookie sticks to match my other Christmas cookies in my cookie platter! I always make these every Christmas!

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
This was PERFECT! I did make some changes just for personal preference! I only used 2 cups of sugar (perfectly sweet enough) and I used 1/2 cup of oil + 1/2 cup applesauce to cut down on the fat! I also only used 3 large eggs. I added 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract and I only used 1 tsp. of salt. This took an extra 10 minutes to bake. This will be my 'go to' gingerbread recipe from now on!

Applesauce Loaf Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
This was PERFECT! I made the same changes that Angie Seaman mentioned! Increased the cinnamon to 1 tsp. and omitted the raisins. And I decided to use only 3/4 cup sugar, which worked great! And just like others have said, this doesn't make 2 loaves, just one! I love the fact that this cake is very low fat and very moist! It has a great apple/cinnamon spice flavor that makes your home smell heavenly while this is baking! Thanks for a great recipe!

Slow-Cooker Posole

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
This was excellent! A very hearty, authentic, flavorful, stew! I changed it slightly for personal tastes! I used pork and chicken cutlets. I used mild sauce and mild green chilies. I only used 1/2 the oregano and I added 1/2 tsp cumin. I served it with refried beans, cheddar cheese, sour cream and chives...and some homemade italian bread to soak up the broth! This meal hit the spot! Great recipe!

Firecrackers

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
This was very good! I had to use 'Andy Capp's Hot Fries' because the store didn't have the hot Cheetos. I coated them individually in the white chocolate and sprinkled them with cayenne pepper to make them as hot as the Cheetos. These are so addicting! I can't stop eating them! I will be trying it again when I find the hot Cheetos!

I will be making these for Easter and Halloween! Great recipe and so easy!
