Primavera Noodles

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2006
I usually don't like pasta salad, but I love this one and so did my family. The only change I made was that I left out the carrots and mushrooms. DELISH!!

Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
Wow!!! As another reviewer said, I also got hooked on beer bread from a Tastefully Simple party and wanted a cheaper fix. I was quite skeptical about this bread because it just seemed too simple. Well, it is definitely simple, but it one of the best beer breads I have ever had! I like dark beer, so that is what I used in the bread. Awesome flavor! I can't overstate how good this bread is. I made it for a dinner party and everyone raved. I decided to give it as a gift at Christmas. (I posted a picture of my "gift" in the photo section of this recipe.) I got the bread pan and bags at the dollar store. I printed up gift tags on business card templates with my computer and on the back I printed the directions. In all, the whole package cost less than $4. I will be making & giving this bread for years to come!

Groovie Smoothie

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2010
DIRTY GROOVIE SMOOTHIE: (An excellent summer treat.) In the mood for a fabulously refreshing alcoholic beverage? Follow directions as written except, instead of using 3/4 cup milk, use 1/4 cup milk, 1/2 cup vodka (or rum) and 3 Tablespoons dry powdered milk. Also, as many other reviewers have stated, I usually add some sugar or Splenda to the mix. ENJOY! I have been using this fabulous recipe for a couple of years now and everyone loves it. I often don't have the exact ingredients specified so I will substitute more strawberries for bananas, different fruit for strawberries, cottage cheese, vanilla and some sugar for yogurt, etc. It is a very easy smoothie to throw together with ingredients on hand. Thanks!

Cinnamon Honey Butter

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
This recipe is easy & delish! I made it the 1st time as instructed. I love the Texas Roadhouse honey butter, so that is the taste & consistency I was looking for. This was close but a bit too sweet & the consistency was almost "frosting-like." The next time I made it, I used half the amount of confectioners' sugar. It was perfect! Just like Texas Roadhouse. Goes great with cornbread too!

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2011
Wonderful recipe. It is really sweet, so be forewarned that you may want to scale back the sugar a bit. I prefer it sweet so I left the recipe as is. Usually I tweak a recipe to my liking, but this one was perfect. My family of 7 completely agreed! Tip: 6 slices of bread is equal to approximately 5 1/3 oz. of bread.

Boudreaux's Zydeco Stomp Gumbo

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
I read the reviews before I started this recipe & here are my thoughts: This is VERY tasty gumbo. This will be my standby recipe. I followed the recipe as written and the only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it needs more meat. I read several of the reviews that said it was too thin, but gumbo is supposed to be a soup, not a gravy or a topping. After the batch was done, I added oysters, crabmeat & doubled the shrimp. Much better! Next time I make it, I will also add okra. BTW: Making Roux isn't hard, but to make it correctly, it is time consuming. If you are wondering how to serve gumbo or with what to serve it (I did), Here is what I found online: The most traditional way to eat it is to pour the soup over a scoop of cooked white rice & top w/ File’ (Google it for details) Then serve with French bread or cornbread, potato salad and/or a fresh salad. Good luck!

Ranch Oyster Crackers

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2014
FYI: 3 tablespoons of Ranch Dressing Mix equals 1 (1 oz) package. I buy the large seasoning containers of the mix, so this info comes in handy. Instead of vegetable oil I use olive oil. I just prefer the flavor of olive oil. Like other reviewers, I chose this recipe because it calls for less oil than similar recipes. You really don't need that extra oil. I will definitely make this my "go to" recipe for this tasty snack. Delish! :)

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2014
FYI: 35 Crackers is one sleeve of Ritz or 1 1/2 cups of crumbs. I am always looking for ways to get my kids to eat veggies and this certainly did the trick. I didn't have buttery crackers, so I used cheese crackers instead. I like to include green veggies with every meal so I added fresh spinach. It looked and tasted wonderful. This recipe would taste great with broccoli or zucchini added to the yellow squash too. I would definitely make this again.

Incredible Watermelon Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2014
This pie was really good. Not knock-your-socks-off awesome... but really good. I always enjoy trying new things and this was "something completely different." I made it for my family of 8 and everyone liked it a lot. I would make it again. The sesame seeds add a surprising amount of flavor. I would never have thought to put these ingredients together, but it works. I served it topped with whipped cream. One tip for the sesame seeds... I greased my pie plate with pan spray. When I added the sesame seeds I turned and tapped the plate like you would to flour a pan all over the bottom and rim. It gave me a great even sesame seed "shell" to pour the filling into.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2014
Best meatloaf I've ever had and my family agreed! I read through the reviews and looked at the pictures... it seems like almost everyone suggests to put the sugar and ketchup on the top WITHOUT even trying the actual recipe instructions. I was hesitant as well (we all grew up with sweetened ketchup baked on top of the meatloaf), but I went for it anyway. So glad I did! Instead of just the topping that you always wish you had more of, the sugar and ketchup make a marinade for the entire meatloaf but doesn't make it soggy. I would probably use a little less sugar than called for but that is just my taste. I will make my meatloaf with the brown sugar and ketchup on the bottom from now on! The ginger was a nice zing to the meat also, I've never added that to meatloaf before.

The Best Smoked Salmon Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2014
Very nice flavor. It doesn't just taste like cream cheese, capers and salmon like most of the other similar recipes. My boys ages 7, 3 & 2 loved it and they have never liked anything made with smoked salmon! I did not have green onion, so I substituted yellow onion. I didn't have heavy cream, so I used half & half. I didn't have fresh dill, so I used 1 tsp of dried dill. It was very good, but I bet it would be even better with the green onion, heavy cream & fresh dill. Will definitely make this again!
