Kids Favorite Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
Cannot believe I have not reviewed this - we've been using it for years! Only thing we change is oatmeal - about 1 cup ground in mini processor - in place of cereal. Tastes great and holds together well. Thanks so much for sharing

Oatmeal and Applesauce Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
Am giving five stars because our grandchild asked for them again today after eating yesterday! Cut in half and used whole grain flour in place of all purpose and plain yogurt in place of sour cream. Also ground up the oatmeal in the mini food processor. Because used whole egg in half the recipe, did not add milk, as it was moist enough. Also used all the cinnamon, baking powder and soda and added nutmeg.

Very nice. Made in the 9x13 with 3 29oz cans of peaches and doubled everything else. Would not have ever been able to guess the crust ingredients from taste - it is great. Thanks for sharing!

Mexican Strawberry Water (Agua de Fresa)

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
Scaled this way down to have a serving for DH to carry to work in his water bottle. Delish. Just used the strawberries, sugar and water, with ice for the latter part of water, tho am sure it would be great with the lime and mint and hope to try that way. Thanks for sharing!

Sirloin Steak with Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
Cooked as instructed, but only had 3 lbs of top sirloin. Grandson and hubby both ate it up - hubby without his usual A-1 and that says a lot. Thanks for sharing.

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
This is the genuine article! As suggested by Allermom, baked in a 13x9 pan for almost 40 minutes. Used only half the amounts for icing because it was one layer. Yummy and rich.

Chicken Fajita Melts

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
Used almost 2 pounds of chicken tenders sliced; one large vidalia onion, 1 1/2 red bell pepper; a whole packet of taco seasoning; and, did not measure the salsa, just spread it on the bread. Cooked the thinly sliced onion and bell pepper till tender and then browned the chicken and added the veges back in before making the sauce. We just toasted the french bread halves and did not slice until cooked. We did not measure the cheese either. This was great and completely gone between the 5 of us. Thanks for sharing!

Lemon Pie Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
Made with the suggestions of others of 1 1/2 's the filling and it was delicious - like lemon meringue pie without the meringue.

Best Ever Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2010
Made this morning with both blueberries and strawberries. Was tempted to use applesauce in place of the oil, but with only 1/4 cup in question, went with the oil as it seems to make a more tender cake/muffin. Was afraid it would not be enough sugar for the blueberries, as they were not real sweet, but it was perfect even for them. Added about 1/2 tsp or more cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg to the dry ingredients. As suggested by Katie, started out at 425 and turned immediately down to 400. Rose to great heights! Thanks for sharing!

Cabbage Burgers

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
I scaled this down to four servings to use 1 pound of ground beef. Per Mels' suggestion, used frozen rolls instead of loaves. Next time, will try with one roll for bottom and one for top. It made 6 VERY large burgers. Also used preshredded packaged cabbage and no water. Hubby loved these.

Spicy Oven Fried Chicken

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
Would have given 5 stars for the flavor if the breading would stay on and the bottom would be crispy. After browning (which took off quite a bit of the breading - will try Linda MClean's suggestion next time (used her ranch dressing suggestion); placed chicken on rack in oven, but the bottoms still came out soggy - and they were crisp from the browning when they went in! Great flavor, tho, and will keep trying to find a solution.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
Used 4 chops. Marinated, as suggested by another reviewer, in apple juice-soy sauce mixture for a little more than 24 hours. Then browned in pam-sprayed pan. Placed in foil-lined pan. Used one can of apple pie filling, as also suggested by the other reviewer, and sprinkled cinnamon and nutmeg over the top of the apples, after heating with 1/2 cup butter in pan. Covered with additional foil and cooked at 350 for 30 minutes, then uncovered and sprinkled with brown sugar and left uncovered for another 15-30 minutes. Yummy.

Easy Pizza Sauce III

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
Great flavor and easy. Added 1/2 tsp Basil; 1/2 tsp sugar; 1/2 tsp onion powder; 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder and 1/2 tsp onion powder, as suggested by other reviewers. Just over the amount needed for our huge cookie sheet pizza. Thanks for sharing.

Salmon Cakes II

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
These were very good. I did not use the parsley or cheddar (dh does not care for cheese, imagine!). I also substituted the 10 ritz for the bread crumbs and added an extra egg. Added 2 tablespoons Miracle Whip and 1 tablespoon dill weed and upped the hot sauce. Made 6 patties. Put together early in the day to cook for dinner, so they were in the fridge much longer than the 20 minutes and did not dust with flour until just before cooking.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
These are easy and delicious. Melted the butter and added 1/2 cup white and 1/2 cup organic coconut palm brown sugar to that while slightly whipping the eggs (suggestion of redzinner). Mixed the white wheat flour (had no all purpose) with the baking powder, salt, 3/4 cup chopped walnuts, and 1/2 cup cocoa. Added the eggs and vanilla to the melted butter/sugar mixture and then gently incorporated the dry ingredients. Used Baker's Joy spray in place of grease and flour for the pan and baked in a 9x9 for about 20 minutes (next time will use the suggested 8x8, as the brownies were a little thin). Did not frost as have never really cared for frosted brownies. Yummy

Fruit and Vegetable Pork

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
Followed the changes suggested by Podger1: browned the chops, removed them from the pan, then sauteed the onions in the drippings. In a separate bowl, put in my chopped Granny Smith apples and then sprinkled the corn starch over these and tossed it to coat. If using a 14 oz. can of sauerkraut, increase brown sugar to 3/4 cup. Add the sauerkraut, brown sugar, and sauteed onion with all the drippings to the apples and mix well. Place the pork chops in a casserole dish, cover them with the sauerkraut mixture, place lid or foil over. Then, cooked at 300 for several hours. Tender, flavorful, filling, easy. Thanks for sharing.

Amy's Healthy Fruity

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
This is a tasty treat. Like iheartnitz, did not have soy powder, so subbed wheat germ. Used all frozen fruits, as that was what was in house. Also used lowfat Dannon vanilla yogurt in place of plain. Only used one banana, as don't really care for them. Thanks for sharing! Update: used apple fiber with pectin in place of the wheat germ, fresh blueberries, frozen strawberries and only one bannana. Even better!
