Thanksgiving Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2014
I cut the onion back to one big one and added a half cup or so of chopped carrot, used chicken broth instead of water and a mess of fresh garlic. I also went easy on the salt. Everyone in our house loved this stuffing, even the two kids who normally hate stuffing. None of us had ever had stuffing made with bread AND stuffing, it was a huge hit. This may be my go-to from now on!

Epic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2014
I doubled this recipe. Because my baking potatoes were on the small side, I did throw in a couple more just for good measure. I did use homemade roasted garlic instead of regular garlic. We all were MMMMM'ing all through dinner. Very delicious. Definitely a make again.

Easy Herb Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2014
I used melted butter instead of EVOO and chicken broth instead of water. I also added onion powder. Because I do not have a roasting pan with a lid, I used a roasting pan and foil. This made for a moist bird and a flavorful gravy. We would use this again but I don't think we would use basil again and maybe use poultry seasoning instead of plain sage. THAT IS NOT A REFLECTION ON THE RECIPE, just personal preference. As is, this would be excellent for roast chicken, IMO.

Freda's Cherry Supreme Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2014
Instead of strawberry jello, I used cherry. I also used sour cream instead of mayonnaise and pecans instead of walnuts. Different but incredibly tasty. It reminded me of Strawberry Jello Salad but without the crust. I think that I would have liked more of a cream cheese layer but honestly, I think it's personal preference. My kids thought this was amazing, especially my youngest. I would make this again.

Apple Pie Crescents

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2014
I doubled this and made my own apple pie spice. My crescents needed a little longer to bake, mine weren't done until almost fifteen minutes. After letting this cool, I served them with vanilla bean ice cream. Eight thumbs up, my whole family loved them. I will make this again.

Garlicky, Spicy and Sesamey Green Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2014
I cut the sesame seeds back by half and added a sprinkling of red pepper flake, other than that I made no changes. Very good. No leftovers. I served this with brown rice and Budget Bytes Honey Sriracha Chicken.

Easy Fudge Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2014
I'm sorry, this recipe wasn't for us. It just didn't work out.

Apple Pie Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2014
I had some issues getting it to stay pourable because it thickened quickly and it was not fun to glob it on the pancakes I made.

Hard-Boiled Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2014
I made three small changes. My local Walmart did not have gruyere cheese so I substituted an equal amount of swiss. I also omitted the parmesan only because I did not have any on hand and I used evaporated milk in place of the half-n-half. I served this over whole wheat toast--HUGE hit in my house. We ate every goshdarn bit of this. LOVED IT. The kids actually asked me to make this again this weekend. This was inexpensive to make and really filled my husband and two kids up!

Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2014
Even after adding a cup and a half of flour, this pancake batter was still wet. I couldn't even get one solid pancake out of it.

Whipped Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2014
For this recipe, I used Extra Creamy Cool Whip and I omitted the nutmeg and increased the pumpkin pie spice to a full teaspoon. The kids thought this pie was fantastic........the grownups wouldn't eat any more past a bite. A little under half of this sat in the fridge until I threw it out. Easy? Yes. Did we like it? Not really.

Pumpkin Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2014
Instead of corn oil, I used vegetable oil. I did not have flax seed, I just increased the nuts just a touch. I also used my own spices to make pumpkin pie spice. Very moist muffin, my whole family really liked the combination of the pumpkin, apple, dried cranberries and nuts. This is quite different but in a good way. All the diverse textures was lovely. I will absolutely make this again. Eight thumbs up!

The Candy Bar

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2014
I used my homemade irish cream in this recipe. VERY sweet but quite good. This really does taste like a candy bar.

Lemon Kamikaze

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2014
I left out the lime juice only because I didn't have limes on hand. I kept to the recipe otherwise. DANGEROUS. I adore this drink. What's not to like?

Champion Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2014
I admit I was a hard sell with this dressing, I thought for sure I would hate it. Honestly, I ADORE IT. I did increase the granulated garlic, dill weed and curry powder but other than that, I kept to the recipe. The longer this sits, the better it gets. Totally addictive. EXCELLENT WITH HOMEMADE PITA CHIPS.

Quick Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2014
I omitted the celery (for some reason, I didn't have any on hand this week and didn't want to spend extra money at the store), increased the garlic and went a little easy with the chili powder. I used pre-cooked brown rice. Heating this through for 20 minutes was unnecessary. I think if I had done that, my rice would have been WAY overcooked. Tasty, though a little salty for our tastes. The kids especially liked this. NO leftovers.

Leftover Meatloaf Tater Tot Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2014
I made a few small changes. I eliminated the can of cream of chicken and added a half cup of milk or so to make a thinner sauce. I did not add the seasoning salt because the cream of mushroom soup was salty enough on it's own. I did cube up the leftover meatloaf and folded it into the sauce ingredients and I used Crispy Crowns instead of tater tots. I DID NOT TRY THIS MYSELF--but my three boys ate the whole thing in one sitting. My husband is STILL talking about this almost a week later. I thought it was pretty amazing because a) this used leftover meatloaf in a new way and b) this recipe called for all ingredients I had on hand. Thumbs up from our family, I will absolutely make this again.

Never Fail Applesauce Spice Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2014
I kept to the recipe only adding a teaspoon of vanilla and a half cup of organic raisins. I also used homemade applesauce. I made muffins out of this recipe (I skipped the frosting today, though next time I make this, I will try it) and I actually got 18 muffins out of one recipe. Moist and delicious. When I make this again, I would double the spices but honestly, that's a personal preference. Four and a half stars.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2014
I flip-flopped the baking powder/baking soda amounts and added a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. After mixing this batter up, I let it sit for about ten minutes (maybe more) before ladling it onto the hot griddle. AMAZING PANCAKES. They turned out GORGEOUS. Like something you would see on the front of a food magazine. And the flavor is JUST LIKE OATMEAL COOKIES. As soon as I finished making these, I wrote this down on a notecard and put it in my permanent recipe file. Good job, jasper33!

Spicy Cajun Pretzels

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2014
I used a homemade dry ranch seasoning instead of packaged. I made no other changes. My pretzels were done baking at about an hour and a half. I also stirred them every fifteen minutes. These are terribly addictive. Everyone loved them, especially my oldest boy. This recipe's a keeper.
