Stovetop Chocolate Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
Very good as written - got lots of compliments at work. It is a very sweet cookie though, next batch, I will lessen the amount of sugar & increase the amount of cocoa to balance the sweetness & chocolate flavors.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2013
Amazing recipe...I have used it for the last couple of years & always double ingredients - it turns out perfectly every time. I have also added mix-ins like chocolate chips, raisins, shredded apple and toffee bits for different flavors. They also freeze very well for a quick weekday morning breakfast.

Mincemeat Quick Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
Really good - very moist & sets up great. I have had issues before with pumpkin or banana bread having an uncooked middle, but after this comes out of the oven I let it cool for about 1 1/2 -2 hours and then cut it into slices. Perfect for mincemeat pie lovers!

Slow Cooker Scalloped Potatoes with Ham

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2006
This was awesome!! The only change I made was to microwave the potatoes (I had 4 large & 2 small white potatoes)for about 5 minutes before slicing into crock pot. I added some fresh sauteed white mushrooms and used leftover sliced deli ham and cooked it on low for about 7 hours. It is delicious and it will be a staple for the fall and winter months. I added a little extra water so there was extra "gravy" to spoon over everything at serving time. This recipe is great to use when you just have a few leftovers sitting around. Thanks for a great recipe!

Zucchini Apple Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2005
Excellent recipe!! Tastes just like apple pie - I substituted graham crackers for the bottom crust & oatmeal topping for the top crust.

Zucchini Pie III

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2005
Yes, it tastes just like an apple pie...My husband and kids don't care for pie crust, so I used graham crackers for the bottom "crust" and oatmeal/cinnamon/brown sugar/melted butter combo sprinkled on the top(like an apple crisp). I sliced the zucchini with a mandolin slicer so it was paper thin, but I think I'll try regular slices next time, for more of an "apple wedge" kind of texture. I will also try to use smaller zucchini to avoid some of the seeds, but no one seemed to notice. I microwaved the zucchini for a few minutes and added it hot to the sugar/cinnamon mix. It does taste just like apple pie (or apple crisp) and I am looking forward to trying it with splenda to make it a little more diet friendly! Thanks for a great recipe Sonya!!

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2004
I just made this recipe (halved since I didn't have tons of macaroni to top) and I thought it was very good. I used light cream cheese, only 1 tbsp of margarine, onion and garlic powder, and both parsley and chives. I thought it was a great quick sauce and the consistency was perfect. I have tried many versions of alfredo sauce and this is versatile enough to make low, medium or full fat versions!!The parsley & chives really added a extra flavor - thanks for a great recipe!@

Cheddar and Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2004
This was a wonderful recipe!! I did add a little onion powder, garlic powder and a sprinkle of allspice. Also, I used light sour cream, tofu (silken pureed) as well as tofu "mayonnaise" and it turned out great. Even my Hubby didn't realize there was tofu in it. It blends really well and I will be using the dressing for potato salad also! Thanks for a great recipe = )

Cottage Cheese Roast

Reviewed: May 10, 2004
This was a disaster for me...I did substitute tofu for the eggs, but I have made tofu quiche from this site w/no problems.This was a complete waste of ingredients...It baked for almost 2 hours and never set. Is there a trick to to having this set up?? After reading many of the reviews, I added extra cereal, even a little scoop of oats to ensure that it baked properly.

Cantonese Dinner

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2003
This is a great recipe!!! I wanted a different pork recipe & I happened to have the ingredients on hand - my husband & kids loved it. It has the same flavors as sweet & sour pork takeout but without frying anything! I really encourage using the pineapple & peppers combo as the other reviewers have said and also, doubling the sauce is a great idea if putting this with rice. I browned the pork, sauteed the peppers and onions and combined the rest of the ingredients and put everything into the slow cooker -- very tasty and flexible enough to substitute any of the ingredients for your own tastes! Thanks for a new favorite!

Chili I

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2003
If I could give this 10 stars I would!! It has a great deep chili flavor -- much more than my regular chili. I didn't have the sirloin cubes, I just used a combo of 1/2 TVP & 1/2 ground beef & extra green peppers & onions. I stay away from too spicy stuff for the kids & hubby, and this recipe is a great balance of flavor & heat. Also, the flexibility makes this recipe awesome for any and all substitutions! Thanks for a terrific recipe!

Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2003
I found this to be too crumbly in comparison to the plain beer bread recipe. The texture was a little dry, maybe I will decrease the amount of whole wheat flour if I try it again. The flavor was okay, maybe broiled w/butter & garlic it would moisten it enough.

Apple and Sausage Cornbread Stuffing

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2003
I wish there were 20 stars for this! We love this as a stuffing in between 2 pork chops. There is plenty for 6-8 chops (2 per stack)with a bit leftover in the pan. The flavor combo is great...I always replace the pork sausage w/the light breakfast sausage links to cut down on the fat content and the taste is great. Thanks for an awesome recipe :o)

Peach Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2003
I thought this was okay, but bland. I added toasted almonds, cinnamon & nutmeg to the sugar/butter/flour combo, but still I wouldn't make it again. It is very simple & quick to make and maybe with a side of ice cream in the summertime it would make a refreshing light dessert. I used three cans of peaches (no fresh available) and drained them well, so I didn't encounter the run over problem.

Easy Add-In Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2003
I was very skeptical when I saw the ingredient list for this, but as Beth says, you're almost certain to have everything you need for this. And, more importantly, we loved it!! I was thrilled to find that my husband, 2 yr. old & 5 yr. old had second helpings!! It really makes boxed mac and cheese more substantial...I only had saltines (unbuttered) for the top and it was really a casserole type dish...next time, I may add broccoli, mushrooms, etc to make it a one-dish veggie meal. Great recipe and super fast and easy :o)

Turkey Cutlets With Apple Chutney

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2003
Well, this is a very quick recipe..The apple chutney is good,but it didn't really seem to go with the turkey flavor. It's an easy recipe and fairly inexpensive, something I would make once in a while, but we weren't crazy about it. Perhaps the apple chutney would pair better w/a pork chop/pork roast.

Easy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2002
This is awesome!! It gets better after sitting in the fridge. I attempted hummus one other time with a yucky mess...this is THE recipe for great hummus. It's basic, quick, and very flavorful. While my kids (2yrs & 5yrs) thought it was too garlicky, I thought it was exactly right (it also mellows a little after a day or two)Also, I don't buy tahini (since I can never find small amounts) I just toasted sesame seeds until fragrant (not browned) and whipped them into a paste with 1 tsp. oil and used that for my recipe. This will be a staple in our house.

Rocky Road Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2002
This is the BEST chocolate ice cream recipe!! I like the fact that there are no raw eggs to worry about. Our 4 yr old and 1 yr old love this ice cream. I like to add some of the marshmallows to the hot milk/cocoa mix and let them melt for extra creaminess. Also, I substitute fat free evaporated milk for the heavy cream to lessen the fat/calorie content and it is still incredible:o)
