Seven Layer Dip

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
Excellent! Although I made some modifications. In the bean layer, I left out the peppers, and added a 1/4 c. or so of chili sauce, and some extra chili pwdr and cumin. For the guac layer, I used only 2 avacados, which was plenty. I added some chunky salsa to the guac as well. I added a ~1/2 pkg of taco seasoning to the sour cream layer for some color and a kick of flavor. I don't like olives, so I drained a can of black beans and put about 1/2 on top for garnish. Overall, it was a BIG hit and everyone loved the flavors!

Take The Night Off Slow Cooker Pineapple Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
Good flavors, but could use some more spices. I did add about twice the soy sauce because we use low sodium soy sauce. I used boneless chicken thighs, which kept the meat moist. Does not need to cook as long as the recipe says. Next time I'll add some garlic & salt & pepper, and cook on the low setting for only 2-3 hrs.

Apple-Filled Cranberry Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2008
These are SO yummy! I used apple sauce instead of the cranberry juice, and so the batter was VERY thick, but they turned out delish! Next time, however, I might just mix the apples into the batter, instead of using it as a "filling". I made a few in ramekins, and they made excellent individually-sized dessert cakes...warm up & serve with ice cream - YUM!

Spanikopita

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
I added 2 eggs & put in about 1.5 c feta (no mozz or parm), and threw in some extra seasoning -- a little nutmeg, some dried onion, oregano, etc. And I rolled them up into little "cigars". Very yummy!

Chunky Pecan Bars

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
Very rich & yummy. Made them for a party & got great reviews. Chill before cutting so they don't break apart, and then cut them small...they are very rich & chocolate-y! I mentioned that I might cut down on the chocolate the next time, and all the guests cried out "NO!!"...so I guess I won't. :) Helpful note...I didn't have dark corn syrup, but I found the following substitution for it online...1 c white sugar + 1/4 c water + 1/4 c molasses....and then I just used 3/4 c of that mixture.

Warm Apple Compote

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
I used this on a pumpkin spike cake ("Easy Pumpkin Muffins", but baked in 9x13) last night & it was delicious. I used dried blueberries (because I had run out of dried cranberries & don't keep raisins on hand). The recipe doesn't say how much water to use...I used about 1/2 - 2/3 cup. I also cooked it down a lot longer than this says....I wanted the apples really soft & for it to be a bit "saucier" to spoon over the cake.

Rosemary-Scented Pork Loin Stuffed With Roasted Garlic, Dried Apricots and Cranberries and Port Wine Pan Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2013
Made this without the port sauce (because we had no pan drippings), and it was still delicious! Loved the combination of sweet and savory flavors. I used apple butter instead of apple jelly because I had it on hand, and it was a very rich flavor.

Frikadeller (Danish Meatballs)

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2013
My husband & I went to Scandinavia for our honeymoon last year, and have been looking for a recipe for the meatballs we loved while over there. This comes very close, but we used the sweet/savory spice suggestions from another recipe here (ginger, nutmeg, allspce). Made a gravy with the pan drippings & a little cream. Ate them with lingonberries that we brought back with us. Awesome!

Raspberry Peach Crumble

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2008
I was really looking forward to making this recipe, but was a little disappointed. Too much butter! And maybe my ramekins are smaller than others...but the filling ran out all over the sides & onto the pan. Very soupy...would cut out the juice and some of the sugar in the fruit. And cut down on the butter. Next time, I'll probably make it in a large pan, instead of the ramekins.

Mixed Fruit Crisp

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2008
Didn't care for this recipe. I LOVE fruit crisps, but the banana flavors just did not work. I also would not recommend adding the water to the fruit...it made the fruit too soupy after baking. The topping was bland.

Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Strata

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2015
Very good! Added more bacon and cheese than called for. Also made it once with just milk and it was delicious. Needed a little more spice, so added some hot sauce and seasoned salt & pepper the next time.

Sausage-Cheese Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2014
Awesome! Family loved them and in-laws said they were better than their mom's. I added some ground sage and cooked them only about 17-18 mins on parchment.

Pita Chips

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
Excellent chips! I made these last weekend for a Christmas party. Instead of cutting the pitas into wedges, I used metal cookie cutters & cut them into holiday shapes -- trees, holly leaves, snowmen, stars, bells, & gingerbread men. They were a BIG hit! I'd suggest leaving the salt out of the oil mixture, and instead sprinkling on a little kosher salt just before baking -- you'll get a more even and controlled coverage.

Tortellini Salad I

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
Very good! I left out some of the things I don't like (olives) or didn't have (mint, feta), used dry seasonings (didn't have fresh parsley), and added more veggies (shredded carrot, broccoli, etc). Served it at a family gathering, and everyone loved it...even the kids who hate all veggies!

Sea Bass Cuban Style

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
Made this recipe with tilapia, and it was delicious! I used canned tomatoes with chilis, as one reviewer suggested, and it added just the right amount of punch.

Peaches and Tequila Sunrise Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2014
We liked it, but it's a little sweet. Next time I'd add some soy sauce to make it more savory and cut down on the OJ.

Anytime Punch

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2014
I have made this for several parties, and it's always is a hit. It'll go faster than you think, so bring more supplies to replenish during the event! I used raspberry sherbet, left out the champagne (let people add their own booze), and tossed in some frozen raspberries to pretty it up. I also made an ice ring with some raspberries in it to keep it cool throughout the party.

Baked Potato Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2013
I used this recipe as a guide & it was delicious! I cut the (frozen) bacon into thin strips (w kitchen shears) & fried them in the stock pot, removed them with a slotted spoon when done & set aside. I then used the remaining bacon drippings with a few tbls of margarine to brown ~1/2 chopped onion; when browned, I added the

Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
Delicious and so moist! I used Pillsbury sugar free yellow cake mix (no one would have known), and it was fantastic! I made this in a 9x13" pan, but will do muffins or mini-muffins next time for portion control. Made "Warm Apple Compote" from this site to serve on top. So yummy & a great way to welcome autumn!

Blackberry Cobbler II

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2013
Excellent! Served it with vanilla ice cream, and everyone cleaned their plates! Will definitely make again, and maybe use other fruits or a blend of fruits next time.
