Instant Pistachio Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
This was a fun dessert to make and eat. I used some of the reserved juice to mix in with the pineapple and pudding mix. I also addes some canned oranges. I used the low fat cool whip. I really liked this, but it did remind of me of something my Mom might have made in the 70's (in a good way!)

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
I had this recipe in my recipe box for over a year and kept forgetting about it. I made it one night and my son RAVED about how much he loved it with his noodles. I used the lower fat cream cheese with no problem. I did use a fresh garlic clove instead of the powdered stuff. A great and easy cheese sauce, yum!

Cream Puff Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
I was very skeptical of this crust, but mine turned out perfect. I made the filling by whipping the cream cheese well first and then alternating the pudding powder and the milk. This was quite a lot of filling, next time I might scale the pudding and milk back for 2 pkgs, instead of 3. I used real whipped cream on top also. This was great and the leftovers were good as well, although not quite as nice as the first day. This would be great for a crowd as there really are 8-12 generous servings. Very yummy and impressive!!

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
excellent bread as written. I did try it with 1 cup of whole wheat as another reviewer suggested and that was WAY too much whole wheat flour, the flavor of the herbs was lost. Last time, I also added a few tsp of vital wheat gluten (some of the recipe exchange members recommended this) and it made for an excellent, tender texture. Very good bread!!

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
This made for a decent, edible meal. It must be my personal taste, but I don't care for the shredded texture of chicken in this recipe. It winds up like the texture of tuna salad with the flavor of buffalo chicken. Not for me, but thanks for the idea.

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
I didn't follow this recipe exactly, (I used ground turkey and decreased the broth to one can and the beans to 2 cans) but I thought the seasoning using oregano and cumin along with the jalapenos was very yummy. I seasoned to my families tastes (not QUITE so spicy) and it was a very nice meal. I will make this one again, thanks.

Pierogi Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
This totally fit the bill for my pierogi craving (I can't find them here and have never made from scratch). This was a little time-consuming to make (like any layered lasagna type dish) but very yummy. I did take a short cut and make instant mashed potatoes (a cheat) and I did as some other reviewers and added the onions and bacons throughout the casserole. This was very rich and pleasing and delish with some sour cream on the side. Not good for the waistline, but a nice treat. Thanks for the idea.

Dough Ornament Recipe

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
This was a fun and easy project. I halved this recipe and found I needed a touch more water to yield a nice, smooth dough. I mixed mine up in the kitchenaid, so I didn't have to knead by hand. It rolled out nicely with a touch of flour. I made small hearts with my boys and we did some with holes punched with a straw, and some with the paperclips that Cheryl (1st reviewer) suggested. I think I like the clean look of the clip as a hanger. Then just painted then and added 2 coats of mod-podge to seal and get a nice finish. They were fun to do and so cute. We are giving them as necklaces with our valentines cards this year.

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
this was excellent sandwich bread. I did use 1 1/2 tsp of salk as some reviewers recommended. As soon as it was cool, I sliced the whole loaf and made my son's sandwiches for the week. I got 5 sandwiches out of the loaf, which I froze (PB and J) and he loved them in his lunch. I love when I make that stuff ahead of time!!

Lana's Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
Very good recipe, but I agree with others to double the sauce. I did double all the sauce ingred (except the canned pinapple) and served over steamed jasmine rice with some broccolli on the side. A good dinner.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
Excellent method for brussels sprouts. I also have made green beans and asparagus using this hight-heat roasting technique and it adds sweetness to anything. YUM! I followed others' suggestions and halved most of my sprouts. These were delish.

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
Good flavors. I used about 4 potatoes (the amount states sounded like a lot!) and the 4 were plenty. I used half a package of frozen, chopped spincach which was a great short cut. I thought this soup was kind of thin. I ate a bowl and was disappointed. I took what was leftover, made a slurry with about 3 TBSP of flour and some water and wisked that in and brought the soup back up to a boil. NOW, it is great soup, just needed some thickening to send it to greatness. I will make again, thanks for sharing.

Golden Rum Cake

A Plus Fair Corn Dogs

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
this was an excellent recipe for corn dogs, they fried up crispy on the outside, and tender inside. Awesome!! We made some by putting cocktail sausages on a skewer, 3 at a time and they were SO darn good. Totally worth the time and effort to make these at home. I did cut the sugar by about 1/3 based on reviews, did everything else by the recipe. Excellent, thanks for this batter recipe!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2008
excellent soup. I used much more ham than called for. We enjoyed this and you can add whatever spices you want to customize for your family. We used a little cajun seasoning at the table. Everyone enjoyed it!

Corn Dog Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2008
This was a good recipe. I halved the ingredients and chopped my veggies very finely. I thought it was a bit dry, I would maybe add a touch of sour cream or butter to the corn bread batter (could have also been my mix, just plain cheap Jiffy!). I think next time, I will also chop the hotdogs into "coins". The bigger chunks were kind of hard for the kdis to manage. BUT....., they did eat this (happily!), so I will tweak a bit more to my family's tastes. Thanks.

Fresh Cranberry Spiced Tea

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
this was good, but a lot of work and fuss for the end result. I don't know if I will make it again, but thanks for the recipe.

Pumpkin Bars I

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
I followed this recipe except for adding a little more spices. I didn't care for the 'oil' taste, next time I would use some melted butter or margarine. Also, I baked in 2 9x13s and they were tastey, but very cake-like, not like a bar cookie which I was hoping for. However,, they were still tastey and really cute with cream cheese frosting and candy corn to decorate.
