Layered Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
This salad is so filling it is a meal in itself. I added 1/2 a rotisserie chicken, bacon bits and a few egg slices to the recipe. I tossed the salad to spread the good stuff around -- yum.

Pumpkin Curry with Lentils and Apples

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
The recipe is a bit off. Followed posted suggestions and reduced the lentils by half, doubled the spices and added another apple. It still wasn't quite right -- maybe add golden raisins?!

Green Bean Salad with Feta

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
I was looking for something different for green beans...this was a great change. I tossed cooked green beans with the feta, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and orange juice. Then I added sliced grape tomatoes and some slivered almonds I had on hand. What a yummy side dish!

Broccoli and Tomato Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
What an easy and tasty way to use up leftover crudite! Spooned over brown rice and served as a main dish with a few shakes of red pepper flakes on top.

Spicy Cucumber Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2011
Holy smokes is this spicy! I halved the cayenne and pepper flakes, and it was still super HOT! Will make again, but with 1/4 of the heat.

Spinach and Yogurt Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
If you can get past the somewhat nasty appearance of this dark green soup, it actually tastes pretty good. I used fresh spinach rather than frozen, and I substituted sour cream and some leftover cottage cheese for the yogurt. Topped it with a tablespoon of sour cream and some bacon bits. Not bad to go with a sandwich.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
This recipe provided the base for the best salad ever. I substituted pine nuts (toasted with the sesame seeds at 350* for 10, no butter) for the almonds, used Craisins instead of cranberries, omitted the poppy seeds, halved the sugar and then added bleu cheese and mandarin oranges. Everyone raved!

Baked Potato Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
Wow! Made a half recipe, substituted onion powder for chopped onions, used half mayo and half sour cream, and skipped the black olives. Chilled in the fridge a few hours then ate whole darn thing with the hubby! Can't wait to serve this on the 4th.

Cool Watermelon Slushes

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
What a great way to use up the leftover watermelon from this weekend's bbq! Made as directed, topped with a little whipped cream and served with a straw. A big hit with and without the frozen strawberries.

Brat 'N' Tot Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
This casserole was way too salty. I should have just made the brats and served them with a side of crispy tots.

Tortellini Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
I've streamlined the recipe a bit to cut down on dishes and ingredients. I brown the sausage in the pot with a little olive oil, 2 Tbsp rehydrated minced onion and 1 tsp jarred minced garlic. When the meat is done, I pour one large can of beef broth over the undrained meat and skip the water and red wine. The rest of the recipe I use as is, sometimes adding chopped spinach or arugala in place of the parsley. This soup is always a hit at our house.

Dirt Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
Yummy and simple -- I don't know that I'll ever "slaughter" a box cake with icing again! I used a plastic bag with the corner snipped to fill plastic cups for individual servings, then decorated each cup with a flower stem or gummy worm -- perfect for the girls and the boys.
