Tiger Butter II

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
Made these and sent to hubby's work for all the folks along with some other goodies and they raved about them. Will be doing every Christmas now. Followed recipe exactly and cut them into squares while still a little soft. Melt in your mouth!

Grilled Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
Excellent flavor. We did trim to remove the tough ends. We put them in a plastic baggie and sprinkle with olive oil and mixed, then sprinkle with sea salt and pepper and mixed again. There was some grill-side discussion as to whether we should have parboiled before grilling, with some declaring they would be tough with just 3 minutes of cooking. This recipe prevailed, thank goodness, and we all enjoyed them tremendously - even fighting over the last ones. Thanks for sharing!

Honey Of An Oatmeal Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
This is a very tasty and healthy bread. Did not use the bread machine, so followed the suggestions of Cola, and added the honey to the warm water prior to proofing the yeast. Used whole grain flour instead of bread flour as well, for a really hearty loaf. Thanks for sharing!

Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2011
Even non-whole grain eating hubby liked this one. Used flaxseed meal in place of the wheat germ, as that is what I had on hand, and added Italian spices before placing in the fridge for about 6 hours - probably could have left on the counter instead, as it did not rise then. Put in warm spot about an hour before using. Did not poke with holes and precooked about 10 minutes before adding toppings. Thanks for sharing!

Strawberry Pie II

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
This is so easy and delicious. We used cool whip to lessen the calorie load. Used 1/2 cup of Mountain Dew in place of the 3/4 cup water and only 3/4 cup sugar. Placed 1/3 of the strawberries in the pan and mashed with a potato masher before adding the sugar, cornstarch and Mountain Dew. Stirred constantly while bringing to a boil and boiled for only 2 - 3 minutes thereafter. We also had about 2 quarts of strawberries, which we hulled and sliced, placing the prettiest ones in the extra large graham cracker crust, which we painted with some melted semi-sweet chocolate in hopes the crust would not get soggy as quickly. This tip worked well. Thanks for sharing and thanks for all the great reviews which helped make this pie the bomb!

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
Used half whole wheat pastry and half all-purpose flour; 1/4 tsp nutmeg; reduced the topping sugar to 1/4 cup but left the cinnamon at 1 teaspoon and should have cut the topping margarine as well, as had about half left. Got 18 mini's out of this. Had sprayed the pan with PAM and they plopped right out when done. 15 minutes cooking time was perfect in my oven. Thanks for sharing! (No one guessed about the substitution of ww flour!)

The Best Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
This is indeed a moist meatloaf. Cut it down for one pound of beef, as that is what I had, but used the whole egg and whole onion with no bell pepper. Next time, will use something other than A-1 (what DH loves on his steak so we have in house), as the flavor was overpowering. Thanks for sharing! Update: did use a mix of Heinz 57 and A-1 - much better. Also, used oatmeal in place of the bread crumbs and 2 eggs in place of one. Awesome

Oven Fries

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
These turned out very good. I used olive oil, which I hand-rubbed onto the sliced sliced potatoes. Then sprinkled seasonings over both sides of fries and rubbed in a bit, adding quite a bit more cayenne and some salt-free Greek Seasoning, as had used sea salt with the other spices. I have done oven fries many times before, always spraying the pan with Pam, placing the potatoes on, sprinkling them with spices, then spraying the potatoes with Pam and cooking at 425. The olive oil works better, I think, or maybe the difference is the sugar (I just sprinkled that over the fries and probably used quite a bit less than a tablespoon), but should have Pam-ed the pan, as they stuck quite a bit when done. They tasted great, tho, and that is what we cook for! Thanks for sharing.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2012
Hoping the grandkids would eat these, and being sure that most of today's kids do not eat oatmeal, I ran the oatmeal though the mini processor a little bit. Also added lightly salted peanuts, which ran through the processor as well to make unrecognizable as nuts (those kids!). Because of the peanuts and using salted butter, I used only about 1/2 tsp salt. Did not chill the dough and used a mix of stevia and splenda and white sugar, but all the brown sugar for its part. Used all the cinnamon and gave a shake of allspice for good measure. Did not flatten or grease the pan. Thanks for sharing!

Taco Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
Made our own crust. Added 3 cloves roasted garlic to crust when adding warm water; added the rest of roasted garlic to bean-salsa mix. Sauteed the onions when beef was almost done. Did not add taco seasoning or water to beef and onion mix. Layered beans, then tomato paste mixture, then beef/onion mix, then low fat 4 Mexican cheese mix and cooked at 500. Added shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes (Greek yogurt to mine) and served with taco sauce. DH loved it and it was yummy

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2013
These are a bit of every flavor, if you add chocolate chips, as we did. Cut the white sugar to 1/2 cup, added 1/2 cup almond butter and used crunchy peanut butter. Only used 1/2 teaspoon salt and added an extra half cup of oatmeal, a teaspoon of vanilla and about 10 ounces of mini chocolate chips. Thanks for sharing

Special Occasion Seafood Au Gratin

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
I made a lot of changes and am rating for what was created thereby so it will show me in the future one of my top rated recipes. Here's how it came out: cut it in half, as there were just two of us; couldn't find scallops, so excluded them but did not increase the other seafoods. Used 4 baby bellas for the mushrooms and sautéed them with 4 green onions and 2 garlic cloves in butter for about 30 minutes. Had large frozen shrimp and thawed and dried with paper towels before adding them to the sautéed mix and continuing to sauté an additional 3 minutes before adding the crabmeat and removing from heat. Melted 3 tablespoons of butter and added 2 tablespoons of flour before adding a cup of heavy cream (in place of broth) and left out the wine. Put seafood mix in a buttered casserole, covered with the cream sauce and topped with freshly grated provolone then roma cheeses. Put all this together early in the day and refrigerated until dinner time. Removed from fridge while oven heated and cooked 15 minutes. Absolutely one of the best dishes we've enjoyed. A side of oven roasted asparagus went very well with this. Thanks for sharing and giving me the courage to try this yummy dish

Marinated Broccoli

Reviewed: May 20, 2011
Did not have white wine vinegar, so used balsamic and added a bit more garlic and cayenne. Used a packet of Truvia (splenda-like sweetner) in place of honey and only 3 teaspoons of olive oil and forgot the water! Other than that (lol), baked, as suggested by Eileen, because broccoli is more easily broken down to the the nutrients when cooked. Only cooked while oven was heating for about 10 minutes uncovered. Yummmmmm and so healthy! Thanks for sharing.

Peach Pie

Reviewed: May 11, 2012
Only had 8 peaches so added some rhubarb we had on hand to fill it in (should have added a little more sugar, as rhubarb is quite tart). Added the cornstarch suggested by many other reviews, and wish I hadn't, as there was almost no juice. It was very tasty tho. Used some other suggestions of starting off at 425 degrees for 15 minutes and turning down to 350 for remainder, as well as leaving in the oven for several hours to ensure a non-soggy crust. Great suggestion and will use it for other pies hereon out. Used half white and half brown sugar and also added nutmeg to the crumb mixture. All in all, a very easy and tasty dish. Thanks for sharing here!

Italian Breaded Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2012
Love the hint about flour first before the egg wash and bread crumbs! Really kept these little babies crispy. Three eggs really is too many, as many other reviewers noted. Used more than 2 TBSP olive oil. Did not measure the bread crumbs and sprinkled with mixed seasoning before flouring and continuing with the breading and cooking. Did not keep in the skillet in the oven, but placed on a rack as advised by another reviewer. Just like fried without the effort and juicy and tender and, most importantly, the breading stayed put! Thanks for sharing.

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2008
Made this for Easter and really enjoyed it - only had 3 bananas, but that didn't seem to bother it. As another reviewer suggested, I broke up the wafers and that was a great suggestion, as it made it easier to serve and eat. Thanks for the recipe, Patty.

Beefy Cabbage Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2012
Added a can of black beans and an onion and used a cut-up head of cabbage in place of mix. Added a beef and a chicken bouillon cube. Did not have Rotel or Italian style tomatoes, so used to cans petite diced. Did not use the corn either and did not drain the beans. Am glad for that, as there was almost not enough broth. But, after all the changes of necessity or taste, we both thought it was very tasty. Served with cornbread and lots of Tabasco!

Coconut Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
What a great idea! Made this as the crust for a lemon meringue pie and it was a big hit. Did use 2 cups coconut with 5 tablespoons butter and 3 tablespoons Splenda and then followed the instructions. Thanks, Carol, for sharing this.
