Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
Took this to a tail-gating party--was delicious. Left out poppy seeds and sesame seeds and didn't miss them. Used feta cheese-was essential. A few didn't try the salad, I guess because of the unlikely strawberry-spinach combination, so hubby and I had a little to finish after the game. Wouldn't have been too good to keep till next day, anyway. Will be one of our favorites now.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
I had 3-4 cups of huckleberries that I wanted to add to an apple cobbler. (Had heard that this was a good combination). This recipe looked like it might work for that. It turned out to be very good! Used about 8 cups of apples, cooked them separately with the flour and sugar in the oven about 30 minutes at 350 first, (Used no water) then sprinkled the huckleberries on top, then the topping and baked about 35 minutes longer. It turned out great. Next time huckleberry cobbler is the goal, probably would use more huckleberries and fewer apples, though, as the apple flavor dominated. I made 1 1/2 x the topping recipe, as some had suggested increasing it, but ended up not using the extra 1/2, as it was too much. A very good recipe.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
Wonderful soup! Added some red pepper flakes and doubled the other spices. It worked fine to put the chicken breasts in frozen--they cooked nicely. This is especially good with a large dollop of sour cream plopped in the middle of each bowl.

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
This is a great salad! It has so many nutritious ingredients and is delicious. I tried using half cauliflower with the broccoli the second time I made it, and was even better, we thought. Added 1/4 tsp. salt, too, which seemed to make it even better. One of our favorite salads now. Almost a meal in itself.

Winter Energy Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2012
Granddaughter and I made these for annual hike with grandpa and family. They seemed to really enjoy them. They are pretty healthy and good tasting as well. We used a cup of granola cereal instead of the wheat germ, as I didn't have any wheat germ, and they turned out great. I think you could substitute liberally and come out OK.

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2012
I wanted a good, easy way to fix pork spareribs, so tried this. Used 1 cup catsup, 2 cups Baby Ray's sauce, and turned out delicious. Liked that you browned the ribs in the oven before the slow cooking. Allowed to cook about the 6 hours. Don't let it cook too much longer than that, or it gets kind of stringy. Was very good.

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2012
A very good casserole--made just as the recipe said, except that I increased the cracker mix by about 1 1/2 times. Think that made it a little better, though higher in calories. Would be nice to do it that way for company, but just for daily cooking might not need to do that. Anyway, a really good side dish.

Megan's Granola

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
Can't make this anymore, as I just couldn't stop eating it--it is so good!! I 1/2X the recipe, and it made quite a lot. I thought we'd have a hard eating it all, but NOOO. It was delicious.

Teriyaki and Pineapple Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2011
A very good recipe for teriyaki chicken. All the vegetables cook down to combine with the other flavors to make a very tasty meal served over rice. I added about 1 cup of wine to the mixture along with about 1/2 cup of low sodium soy sauce. Thought it was going to be too salty, but turned out just about right. Had to add a little more flour to thicken. Very good and will make again.

Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
A very nice recipe for a side dish to serve with pork or by itself. The sauce is just the right thickness and the method makes it all turn out just right. Remove from heat just after sauce thickens nicely, though. I left it on low for a while, and the sauce thinned and the apples kind of wilted. Still good, but would have been better had I served it right away.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
Fixed this for 91-year-old mother-in-law. She thought it was wonderful. I have to confess, I didn't even get to taste it, but it surely smelled and looked wonderful! I'm sure I'll make it again and get a taste then. Will update my review.

Quick Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
This was very good and a quick easy recipe for a different, tasty breakfast. I used dried onion, sausage, and added some halved cherry tomatoes and green pepper. You could substitute almost anything that suits your tastes, I think. Will certainly make again.

Broccoli Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
Made this for an Easter dinner--requested by our daughter. I used only one can mushroom soup and 3 cups cooked rice. Left out water chestnuts. It was delicious. Topped with the buttery cracker-butter mixture, as suggested by a reviewed, which was a great contrast to the texture of the rice-broccoli-soup combination. Just used a rolling pin to crush the crackers right in the sleeve. Worked great. Will definitely make this again. Could even add a little more broccoli, as it wasn't very dominant in the flavor of the casserole. But overall, this was scrumptious. (How do you spell that anyway? Hope that's right.)

White Chocolate Macadamia Cranberry Dreams

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
These are really delicious!! The dough is quite stiff, so you have to mix the dry ingredients in by hand, but it handles really well, and you don't need to chill it before baking. I used more white chocolate chips, macadamia nuts, and cranberries. I chopped the cranberries in the food processor, which made the flavor more evenly distributed throughout the cookies. I also chopped the macadamia nuts in the food processor. It was really important to bake them just until set, as they stayed softer that way. Mine took more like 15 minutes, though, so I guess everyone will have to adjust the baking times to their own oven. I will put this recipe in with my best for the holidays.

Easter Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: May 19, 2010
This was a really delicious breakfast casserole. I used potatoes O''brien and baked them 20 min. before adding the rest of the ingredients. Will definitely make this again for company or special occasion.

Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
These were really moist (I added a little more carrot than recipe). They were very good--maybe just a little sweet--might decrease sugar to 1 cup. Used brown sugar, as I almost always do if there's an opportunity to. Second batch of muffins I baked on higher rack in oven, and they browned better. Made 24 muffins. Were very good, but not just wonderful--so 4 stars. Didn't look like picture at all. Were kind of flat on top. Maybe I did something wrong?? Kind of out of practice at making muffins. Update: I got a new box of baking soda and what a difference. The muffins were lighter, rose higher, and tasted wonderful. Would give 5 stars.

Christmas Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
Changed the recipe a quite a bit, but was a great base recipe. Very easy to substitute ingredients to your liking. Used 9 eggs, potatoes O'brien, 1/2 cup chopped jalapeno pepper, 1/2 cup cup-up tomato, 1 lb sausage, and about 3/4 lb chopped ham. Left out the salt. Left out the onion and mushrooms, as was in too much of a hurry to prepare and cook them. Did add some dry onion to the egg mixture. Layered it as suggested by a reviewer--1/2 potatoes on the bottom, covered with the cheese, meat, vegetable mixture, and topped with the rest of the potatoes. Baked it the same day. Then sprinkled about 3/4 cup shredded cheese on top, 10 minutes before it was done. Looked very nice when cut with the layers. Very presentable with the cheese topping. Very filling and delicious.

Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
This was delicious. It stayed nice the next day also. I used 1 large can pineapple tidbits and 1 can fruit cocktail, well drained. I also added 1 tsp. almond flavoring, which wasn't quite enough. Next time might add 1 1/2 tsp. It was quite pretty, creamy, and very tasty. Mother-in-law asked me to make it again soon!

Snickerdoodles III

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2014
These turned out very good. I used 3 cups flour, though. Think it made them a little less likely to fall in the middle and turn out flat. Very good cookies.
