Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2013
I made these last year for office Xmas presents. Had I actually tried them before giving, I would have had a hard time parting with them. Read reviews for instructions on how much ingredients to buy if you are making in bulk and set up an assembly line putting in one ingredient at a time in all jars. Also, consider order of ingredients using some of the prettier ingredients at the bottom of the quart jar where they aren't hidden by any decorative top you might use. Along with the decorative top, I attached a tag with instructions for baking. Everyone raved about them.

Asparagus Soup in Seconds

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2013
I just made this for lunch and it was wonderful. I added just enough chicken broth for the consistency I wanted and added touch of cream near the end of heating. Next time I'll probably skip the cream since it took away some of the asparagus taste. I'm now wondering what other canned veggies might be transformed into a soup with so little effort. Thanks for this quick and easy recipe

Yellow Squash and Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2013
I increased the recipe by 50% because of the size of can of creamed corn and the fact I had a large squash - over 3 cups. Per other reviewers, I sautéed the onions - maybe tripling amount - and also sautéed squash though I am not sure it was necessary. I also cut squash into 1 inch cubes rather than slicing. For the mix, I ended up using a mistake I made earlier in the week when I mixed a pie crust box and a cornbread box. Who knew it would turn out so well! It did take about 1 hr to cook, but this is probably dependent on size of pan. It is my favorite squash casserole recipe!

Quick Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2013
Delicious, quick and easy! It takes longer to get together the toppings you want than to get the soup on the stove. Plus, I didn't have to cook the rice since I had some on hand in the frig. (I always keep some cooked rice in the freezer for an emergency ingredient but didn't have to use it this time.) I made exactly as written, except cutting the red pepper to 1/4 tsp because my elderly Mom can't stand heat. I will definitely make again but will try blending less beans - maybe blending just one can instead of two cans - since I felt the soup needed more whole beans. Thanks for such a quick recipe! It was a lifesaver last night when I was late from work.

Blueberry Cornbread

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
I've made twice, both times with splenda and once cutting salt. Do cut salt to 1/2 tsp. The batter was quite dry & I resisted the temptation to add more liquid before baking. It worked out fine without it. Needless to say there is a reason why I made it twice - it is a wonderful and interesting recipe.

Chinese Napa Cabbage Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2013
As other reviewers suggested, I stored the cabbage, dressing and noodles separately and mixed at serving time. For a healthier dish DO NOT use the ramen seasoning packet. I sprinkled a bit of Herb ox sodium free chicken bouillon granules on mine, but the noodles can go without any seasoning. I cut back on oil a bit and I didn't have sesame seeds and it was fine without. Great salad. Thanks for posting.

Lemon Basmati Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2013
I thought it had too much lemon and too much ginger and right now I'm really into lemon. My lemons were large so the recipe might be sensitive to size.

Creamy Lemon Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2013
I wasn't sure what to make of it after I tasted it for the first time. It certainly was tart! After about 3 spoonfuls I was hooked. I also meant to try it with a little sweetness but didn't get around to it this time - maybe next time.

Lemony Mediterranean Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2013
My chicken was well done and dry before the hour was up so I would check temperature frequently. The lemon dressing was good but would be better if it was used to marinate the chicken for a few hours. Nice basic recipe but be sure to reduce and or watch cooking time.

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2013
This is an excellent recipe (surprising sweet) that everyone loved. Its only problem is not enough liquid. I supplemented using an additional can of tomatoes and some additional broth. Other than adding one medium onion (chopped) in with the sausage, the addition of liquid was the only change I made. This was the first time I've used canned Italian tomatoes and I'm glad I did. I wasn't sure they were that different from other canned tomatoes, but they were. In addition to the spices, the tomatoes included tomatoe juice. I think this helped to make the soup and if you haven't tried it, certainly try in this recipe.

Baked Fried Brown Rice Recipe (Yes, baked fried rice!)

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
I used my own choice of veggies, including butternut squash. It was nice to free up stove top and have larger space for rice to crunch up.

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
With only 3 ingredients (also a plus) and very little modification it just seemed like 3 ingredients stuck together and not a cohesive treat. However, most who tasted enjoyed. If not bought on sale, the ingredients are expensive.

Lemon Herb Lamb Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
I have made this recipe several times. The marinade is my go-to recipe for grilled lamb chops. Do not be tempted to add additional lemon or you will have too much of a good thing. Having deviated once - I stick to the recipe. You can't go wrong with this. Love it! Thanks for sharing,

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2012
Without a doubt this is the best way to cook an eye of round. Here are some tips I've read here or elsewherer 1) rub with kitchen bouquet before cooking to give a nice consistent brown 2) adjust cooking time to size of roast - 7 mins per lb. However, if smaller than 3 lbs leave in oven for 2 rather than 2 1/2 hrs

Eggplant Supper Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2012
Great recipe. I cook it a couple of times a year - in summer when the eggplant are plentiful and in winter for a cold winter day. I skip the macaroni because I have plenty leftover and don't like my pasta well done. It is a flexible recipe that stands modification so experiment away.

Butternut Squash Soup with a Kick

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
Great soup! Coconut milk can overpower so be careful on the amount used or you will have coconut milk soup with squash. However, coconut milk lovers may prefer the latter!

This was ok. It is simple, makes alot and fills the crockpot. If it is your first time making, you may want to do a half recipe
