Beer Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
I will definitely try this recipe again. The burgers were quite tasty. However, the burgers tended to break apart. Next time I will try with a little less beer.

Green Bean Artichoke Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
This is a very rich recipe. I modified the recipe by reducing cheese and breadcrumbs and adding a bit of the liquid from the beans. However, it was still too rich.

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.

Golden State Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
My family raved about this soup. I made 4 modifications - added 1/4 cup dry white wine, substituted a little half and half for part of the milk, added a bit of garlic, and used less than a cup of sour cream (because I didn't have it). It probably would have been just as good as written. Definitely a keeper.

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
I didn't follow the recipe exactly since I didn't measure the cups of bread and used far less butter. I did use about all the broth, but ended up with not enough sage - getting the right amount of sage is the art of the stuffing. The stuffing made using this recipe had the consistency of stuffing, not dressing which tends to be drier. I loved being able to free up the oven.

Pecan Puffs I

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
A major step has been omitted - rolling/shaking the completed cookies in powdered sugar while they are still hot.

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!

Slow Cooker Latin Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
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

Ratatouille Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
Everyone loved it. We had to have it twice in one week. We added more ravioli than called for and did not add tomato sauce as suggested by others. However, I suspect it would also be good with the extra sauce. What a great and versatile recipe!

Marzetti® Hawaiian Slaw

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2011
4 1/2 stars for a tasty change of pace to regular coleslaw. Loved the fruit, but you can never have enough coconut so add more. Give it a try!

Pizza Sauce I

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
Tasty but - as another reviewe mentioned - this is more like a pasta sauce than a thicker pizza sauce. I added tomato paste to thicken, but it didn't help.

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

Baked Potato Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2011
My family loved this, with my elderly mother declaring it was the best pizza she ever had. I'm using their ratings rather than my own since I'm not a potato person. I used thin crust pizza in a tube (11 oz) from the grocery refrig case which pressed into a jelly roll pan. As per other suggestions, I mixed the sour cream with spicy ranch dressing - a great modification!

Best Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
Yummy comfort food. I added a can of milk and forgot to add the peas so served them on the side. I used a 9X13 pan and definitely think that the can of milk just saved it from being too dry. If you like old fashion tuna casserole, this recipe won't disappoint as long as you add more moisture.

Buttery Corn Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
This is an ok recipe if you are not looking for a good old fashioned cornbread recipe. This recipe tastes too breadyw, like it didn't have enough cornmeal. I didn't try reversing the proportions of cornmeal to flour (I made it according to recipe), but it sure tasted like I should have. Even Jiffy mix has more of a cornmeal taste! If you don't like old fashioned souther cornbread, this may be the recipe for you.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
I've made this twice. The first time I served it as a side dish and then using the leftovers served it as a main meal adding a formed toasted small floor tortilla shell with the condiments for a taco salad (e.g., sour cream, salsa, tomatoe). I typically use fresh corn and per suggestions of others, I use only one can of black beans. Tomorrow, I'm bringing this as a side dish for a work party. I've found this recipe to be forgivable and adaptable - you can add any enhancements you want.

Low Sugar Strawberry Rhubarb Crunch

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
A definite keeper with a couple of modifications. I substituted cooking splenda for the honey - 1-2 tablespoons. It came out tart, but not too tart. As others suggested, I used 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and 1/4 cup splenda brown sugar. The topping was a bit skimpy but that may have been because I used the one minute oats. Next time I will may double the topping.

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.

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.

Fettuccine Alfredo Without All The Guilt

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
Excellent. I had to add more flour and cook longer to thicken. Also added chicken.
