Blueberry Banana Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
This is basically an *ambrosia-type* salad without the white sugar added. My fresh berries from the backyard were pretty tart so I added some fresh sliced strawberries and plain yogurt. Very fresh tasting...don't think this salad would hold up well overnight with the marshmallows.

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
This was a quick and tasty pasta sauce. The heavy cream add a nice change from regular red sauce. I topped this with parmesan cheese and leftover sliced grilled sausage.

Pasta with Sweet Peas

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
This was kinda bland and needed seasoning. I used a different pasta and frozen petite peas. I added garlic and onion powder and a splash of olive oil. I also topped with parmesan cheese.

Russian Style Creamy Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
I've don't think I have ever had russian dressing and this was very tasty!! I scaled the recipe back to 4 servings and decided to use dried parsley instead of fresh (as to try and get the kids to eat it). It definitely needs the fresh. It has taste similar to thousand island dressing but this recipe has a milder flavor. Even with scaling the recipe back to 4 servings...it could easily be 5-7 servings.

The Earl's Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
This was easy to make for a quick lunch. I had leftover french bread that I needed to use up. We don't eat white bread so I subbed the french. next time I will add some lettuce and tomato. I made the russian dressing recipe from this site instead of buying a bottle from the store.

Almond French Toast

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
My kids liked this recipe. However, make sure you don't cut your french bread slices thicker than 1", cook on medium low and cover with a lid. Some of my bread slices had some soggy middles after cooking. I only used a handful of almonds and let sit for 30 before cooking.

Grilled Sausage with Potatoes and Green Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2008
This was so GOOD! I needed to use up leftover grilled sausage and a half can of green beans and this recipe fit the bill. Simple prep consisted of cut up boiled red potatoes! I had a pan of leftover sauteed butter panko bread crumbs. i put all the ingredients into the pan and heated through. Added freshly grated parmesan...will make again with fresh green beans. Will definitely add the sauteed panko bread crumbs with the garlic/sliced onion too!

Spinach Salad with Baked Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2008
This was my first experience using goat cheese. I used panko bread crumbs, gave a nice crunch coating! I added chopped walnuts and fresh blueberries. Next time I will blend the oil and vinegar together before putting it on the salad. It's missing some flavor though, even with the cheese. The cheese would be great served on top of filet mignon!

Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
Not Good! I used a duncan hines dark chocolate fudge cake, 1 tablespoon of canola oil, instead of 1 cup semi-sweet chips only used 1/2 cup. Replaced 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chips with peanut butter chips. 1st tray 3" cookies baked 10 minutes...very flat and bottom over done, 2nd tray 2" cookie-pressed top down slightly - baked 8 minutes--very flat and overdone on the bottom. 3rd tray--2" cookie, baked 8 minutes - centers raw (all three trays were baked on a SILPAT and dark cookie sheet, as well as oven thermometer reading 350 degrees. 4th sheet - 2" cookie, baked 8 minutes using parchment paper...not much difference than the other 3 attempts. Not a good chocolate flavor or even a good looking cookie Good thing the cake mix only cost .88 cents!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
DELICIOUS and SIMPLE!!! I had this recipe in my box for some time and wanted to try it using a less expensive cut of meat. Was at our local butcher's today and they had pork butt on sale for $1.99 a pound. After reading the reviews many used a pork butt so I decided to give it a try. Put the pork in the crockpot at midnight with the beef broth ONLY for 10 hours. Shredded the meat while still warm. I was surprised at the amount of fat there was with this boneless 4.5 pork butt. The meat tasted so good without the bbq sauce !!! After shredding I ladling a few cups of the beef broth onto the meat to keep from drying out. I topped with Big Al's BBQ sauce recipe. I will definitely make this again soon!

Green Grape Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
After reading the reviews and finding out this recipe makes alot more than 8 servings I scaled the recipe to 2 servings. I used 2 1/2 cups total of green and purple grapes. The recipe does not state the cream cheese should be softened at room temperature. In order to blend with sour cream I did let mine sit out. I refrigerated 5 hours prior to topping with a sprinkling of brown sugar and diced walnuts and almonds. I nice variation on using leftover grapes. However, I think my green grapes were very tart and may use all purple grapes next time. *UPDATE* I sprinkled a bit more brown sugar and refrigerated overnight...much better flavor the next day!!

Boston Iced Tea

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
WOW..this was a surprisingly refreshing tea! I love tea and am always looking for a new way to drink it. I halved the recipe, then halved the sugar to try it out. Good, but not too sweet. Next time I make this I will substitute ALL Agave Nectar to sweeten since I'm sure the cranberry juice has sugar in it.

Great Green Salad

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
The dressing really makes this salad. Light and flavorful! I added several extra veggies, left out the avocado and forgot to add the almonds. Can't wait to try this when all the veggies in my garden come in!

Italian Peas

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
Wow I was surprised at how good this simple recipe turned out. My family has never been a fan of peas so I was looking for a way to make them taste a little different...this recipe was it. I did have frozen corn leftover from another recipe so I put it in the last 2 minutes to heat. Hubby ate 2 helpings (so did I)! Next time I'd like to try it with a little crumbled bacon.

Grilled Onions

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
Very good topping for the smothered filet mignon recipe!! I only used 2 onions and sprinkled on powdered bouillon I cut the onion into smaller slices to shorten the cooking time to 30 minutes.

Smothered Filet Mignon

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
This marinade was DELICIOUS! It does help to have a great cut of steak too...I followed the recipe as stated and it was moist and flavorful. I didn't have bleu cheese so used feta in it's place. My company was wowed by this dish! Served the grilled onions recipe from this site on top. Will make again!

Fluff Dip for Fruit

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
Family really enjoyed this dip...very creamy. I had to make it kid friendly so I left out the amaretto but replaced it with milk. I also halved the recipe and still had a lot of dip leftover. Served with fresh strawberries and banana slices.

Easy Pizza Sauce III

Reviewed: May 30, 2008
I needed pizza sauce to serve with calzone/stromboli and this recipe was a SNAP to make!!! I put it together in minutes and it tasted better than the jarred sauce with sugar added. I will definitely use this recipe again and again!

Secret Burger Sauce

Reviewed: May 30, 2008
A nice alternative to ketchup! Had company and wanted to make the burgers special and this worked. I halved the recipe and chopped the dill pickles very fine (kids don't like chunks). Very good...will use again this summer for our many bbq's. Thanks for the recipe

Microwave Lemon Curd

Reviewed: May 30, 2008
This recipe is AWESOME!!! It took 2 MINUTES in my microwave to make!! I didn't temper my eggs so I did have some small cooked egg bits. I did strain the curd through a fine mesh strainer. To see if this would turn out I scaled the recipe to 5 servings using 1 egg. I have bought lemon curd (that was very expensive) from specialty stores before. Not anymore!! Can't wait to make the entire serving recipe and give as gifts.
