Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
Wow, just as almost everyone else has said, this is amazingly delicious. Hubby and I felt like it was a treat not a vegetable that we had to force ourselves to eat! I made half a recipe for just the two of us so I cooked it at 425 for 20 minutes then added the parmesan (no parsley) and broiled for five minutes. Make sure to grease the baking sheet or maybe try cooking on tin foil to make cleanup easier. The broiled parmesan is NOT easy to get off an ungreased pan and cooking spray was not a good substitute as I found out the hard way! LOL We will eat this many times in the future! Thanks so much for this easy and yummy recipe. Update: I actually made this again the very next day! I used tin foil on a baking sheet and sprayed the tin foil with cooking spray before spreading the vegetables on it, worked like a charm for same taste with easier cleanup!!

Hot Turkey Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
I would give this ten stars if I could. It's delicious! I can't believe it's only a four star recipe. I really tried to stick to the ingredients so I could judge it fairly. I made half a recipe with leftover Easter turkey breast and in place of the regular salt, I used both seasoned salt and garlic salt. I did use a whole green onion so that was more than a tsp. but the more onion the better in our opinion! Do Not leave out the pecans, they add a wonderful texture and flavor! My hubby couldn't believe he liked them in this casserole since he never likes them in cold turkey or chicken salad! I also used reduced fat cheese and low fat mayo and we totally couldn't taste a difference in the finished product. Yummy!! I will always use this recipe after holidays and probably look forward to the leftoves more than the holiday meal!

Easy Turkey Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
I really like this recipe. Based on reviews, I decided to use 6 oz. of noodles instead of 8 oz. so it would be a better sauce to noodle ratio and I used Hodgson Mill whole wheat fettuccine instead of egg noodles, I definitely think this was a great change. I did use canned mushrooms like the recipe said to use but next time I will sautee fresh murhrooms with onions instead. I also only used one TB. of butter while I sauteed the green onions (fresh from the garden!!) with the canned portabello mushrooms and minced garlic. The only other change I made was cream of chicken (all I had in pantry!) and added steamed broccoli just because it needed to be used and a little fat free half and half (milk would work the same but I had it in the fridge) because of the reviews that it was a little dry. I cooked this at 350 instead of 375 for 30 minutes and it was perfect. I will definitely make this again. FYI: The leftovers were suprisingly yummy the next day heated in the microwave!!

Poke Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
I like this recipe a lot! It's very simple and quick and yummy all at the same time :o) I used the cake mix that comes with the pudding already in it according to the package directions so I made the lemon pudding mix with milk to spread over the cake once I had poked holes in it and covered it with the liquid lemon jello. After this set, I spread on the cool whip and stored in the refrigerator until Easter dinner the next day. Yummy, everyone loved it!

Bikini Martini

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
Yummmy...one of my favorite drinks ever. I do use a little more pineapple so I don't fall on the floor after only a few of these! LOL Sometimes, I leave out the grenadine and use vanilla vodka instead of plain. You don't even miss the grenadine this way!

Southern Style Banana Split Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
My hubby will be mad I found this recipe! He thought it was "his" little secret! :o) He makes this in a jelly roll pan so it's thinner (which I like) and doesn't use the peanuts on top. This is the perfect summer recipe for a barbeque or to munch on while sitting by the pool. It tastes deceptively light but it is most definitely not a low calorie dessert. YUMMY!!!

Jet Ski Jolt

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
My hubby had the idea to use vanilla vodka instead of plain. Wow, that was over the top yummy!! You definitely don't need all that grenadine, it's just extra calories but it does add a pretty color to the drink :o) This is also good with plain pineapple juice if the combo orange-banana-pineapple isn't available.

Five-Cup Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
Loooove this fruit salad! My aunt introduced me to it three years ago and my hubby hasn't gotten enough of it yet! Don't change a thing, it's perfect.

Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
I loved this recipe for Easter! My sister complimented me on it by saying that she doesn't ever eat broccoli casserole but ate mine because it was made with fresh broccoli...It Wasn't!! I think adding the broccoli while still frozen (two 16 oz. bags of Bird's Eye broccoli cuts) helped it not get mushy in the oven like some other recipes do! I did use half mayo and half sour cream and added garlic, onion powder and lemon juice as someone else recommended. I also topped it with crushed ritz and melted butter. It was done in exactly 45 minutes just like the recipe states! I am looking forward to eating the leftovers for dinner tonight! :o)

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
This recipe has amazing potential for easy weeknight, weekend, holiday and any other meals that you need to cook turkey for without using your oven! I followed the recipe exactly except for adding one stalk of celery, half an onion and a little water to the crock pot so I would have juice for gravy! I got at least four compliments on the gravy at Easter because the dry onion soup mix provided so much flavor!! All you have to do is strain the juice into a small saucepan and add cornstarch mixed with water, stir constantly until it's thickened and there's your awesome gravy to serve with the turkey and stuffing! I was a little nervous about how long to cook the turkey because my slow cooker is insanely hot, but I used the advice to cook until 170 internal degrees and for my 6.75 lb. breast that happened in only 4.5 hours! I will keep a closer watch on it next time since my slow cooker cooks like an oven! LOL Try this easy recipe, you won't be disappointed.

French's® Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
I'd like to start out by saying that I prefer this recipe over Campbell's version on this site. Although I'm only rating this a four, it's definitely my favorite green bean casserole and I'd rate it a 4.5 if that rating was available! I think next time I might splurge on half and half instead of milk since the milk really diluted the flavor of the sauce so that might make it a five star recipe! I added sauteed fresh mushrooms and onions to this recipe and used a certain brand of green beans that seems to produce the highest quality frozen vegetables!

Reuben Sandwich II

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
My hubby LOVES these sandwiches! I whole heartedly agree with using two slices of cheese, if you're splurging on a sandwich like this might as well enjoy it to the fullest! We only eat thousand island dressing on these sandwiches so I didn't see the point of buying a whole bottle. I made half a recipe that is posted on this site and it was Perfect since I was able to use dill relish instead of sweet!! Thanks to whoever recommended heating up the sauerkraut in the microwave first, I had never thought of that and it really helped :o)

Watergate Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
LOVE this stuff! this recipe has been around for years. The only things I do differently is use a 20 ounce can of crushed pineapple and combine the juice with the dry pudding mix before adding the other ingredients to make sure it all dissolves. Oh yeah, I would just use the whole container of cool whip also to cut down on the richness and make it go farther at a buffet!!

Cheesy Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
We loved this change from traditional sweet acorn squash (although we love that too!) As per reviews, I cut the filling in half and I'm glad I did because it was exactly enough! The only thing I changed was cooking in the microwave for only ten minutes since ours is very powerful, used red onion because that's all I had and adding minced garlic to the filling while it was cooking. This is a simple and delicious recipe that we will definitely make again! FYI: I cleaned the seeds from the squash, sprinkled them with olive oil, garlic salt, creole seasoning and chili powder and roasted them in the oven! Tasted a lot like roasted pumpkin seeds!

Flip-Flops Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
This turned out pretty cute. I made my own buttercream icing so I should have let it harden a little more before I inserted the fruit by the foot and non-edible scrapbooking flowers! :o) That was my own mistake of course. I placed the flip flops cake on a baking sheet and surrounded it with crushed graham crackers to resemble sand.

Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
WOW!! I only had one 3 lb. brisket (unfortunately) so I halved the ingredients. Also, I used miller lite beer since that's all my hubby had! Followed everything else exactly and cooked in crock pot for six hours before adding cabbage and then cooked it until done. The beer, bay leaf and minced garlic really add another dimension of flavor to an already wonderful dish! This is SO yummy, I think I could eat the whole thing by myself!! :o) I'll never use another recipe for corned beef. Thanks so much!

Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Vinegar

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
I followed this recipe exactly except for using garlic salt instead of plain salt. I cooked it for 12 minutes which we thought was perfect and I added the balsamic when there was two minutes left so it would cook into the asparagus. I really enjoyed this and it was so easy, but next time I will add minced garlic before cooking for a little more flavor. thank you!

Healing Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
I thought this was ok the first day and phenomenal the second day. Apparently, that's the way cabbage dishes usually are :o) Next time, I'll use a whole onion and add a few more spices but I thought it was great as it is now! Soo excited about the very low fat and calorie content too! Thanks for a great recipe. FYI: We served this with a slotted spoon and ate it as a side dish instead of soup. I liked it better this way!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
Who doesn't love this recipe? I've always used it except with all butter and no shortening. Not terribly cool to change that one thing from the Quaker Oatmeal canister recipe and then claim it as your "own" recipe but it is nice to have online in case the "Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookie" recipe ever vanishes from the lid of the canister :o)

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
I took the advice of many reviewers and grilled the steaks instead of cooking in the pan since I was afraid to mess up expensive filet! I cooked mushrooms and onions in butter in a skillet and then put them on a plate to make the reduction. After I simmered the vinegar and red wine until it was reduced, I added the mushroom/onion mixture back to the pan and topped the steaks with it when they were done. It was insanely yummy according to my husband!
