All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
I am so glad I tried this recipe. I followed another reviewers advice and just used 4 apples and cut the serving size down to 20. This made enough to fill a container for just my husband and I. I do think that this would make a good Christmas gift like other reviewers stated. I didn't use cloves because I didn't have any on hand and I'm not really a clove person. I added a little more cinnamon though and vanilla. Next time I make this I am going to add more apples and less sugar. I'd also like to try it with half brown sugar. However, this is probably just personal preference. I don't have a huge sweet tooth. This was delicious though. I started it about 8pm and let it cook overnight. This morning I woke up and used my hand blender to blend it a bit and had it on a piece of toast on the way to work. Wonderful!

Campbell's® Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
This was a good base recipe. Sometimes it's nice just to have a few ingredients, and this was a nice addition to the more complex dishes I served during Thanksgiving. Thanks for a great recipe! Will use again.

Honey Limeade

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2008
I liked this drink. I think next time I will make it without the honey flavor. It's good, but different. The sugar sweetens the drink enough. 10 medium limes equaled about a cup of lime juice for me. P.S.- To anyone who thinks they are making this drink more "healthy" by using artificial sweeteners instead of sugar, artificial sweeteners are anything BUT healthy. Add the sugar and bask in your vitamin C allotment.

Sparkling Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2008
I'm giving this a 5 because it tasted really fresh and all the fruit in the recipe doesn't turn brown which allows you to make this a few hours in advance. I also used canned pineapple chunks because it was a lot cheaper than buying a pineapple. Unlike other reviewers, I thought the club soda/grape juice combo added to the recipe and I could taste it on the fruit. I served this with some chicken garlic pizza and it was perfect. Thanks!

Lahmahjoon (Armenian Pizza)

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
Coming from an Armenian family, I grew up on Lahmahjoon. Making this on a tortilla is definitely easier, but it tastes more authentic on flat bread, (which is much more time consuming.) I moved from CA to UT and can't find ground lamb anywhere here. I made this recipe with beef and it still tasted good, but I prefer the lamb. I didn't follow the recipe exactly, but I felt the mixture of spices was pretty accurate. By the way: I love rolling Lahmahjoon up with lettuce and tomatoe in the middle. It makes a great sandwich.

Easy Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
Easy, go-to spaghetti recipe. Good when you haven't planned dinner because it contains common ingredients.

Chicken Garlic Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2008
This recipe was more delicious then I expected. I doubled the sauce and added mushrooms. I recommend adding 1.5 chicken breasts instead of one. Next time I think I am going to grill the chicken instead of boil it. I cooked this at 400 degrees as well and it turned out perfect! Thanks for an awesome recipe that I will make often. Update: This has become a regular in our household. Don't listen to reviews that say to add red sauce. The pesto-like basil-green onion sauce is one of the best things about this pizza. It also takes great on a homemade wheat crust. YUM! This is AWESOME.

Apricot Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2008
This is an excellent recipe. I didn't have cashews or the green pepper but I added a can of apricots, brown sugar to taste, and some pepper. My husband really liked this. Thanks for the idea!

Sweet Cottage Cheese and Bananas

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2008
This is a fulfilling snack. I did a few sessions with a trainer at the gym and she said that cottage cheese was high on her list of good foods to eat. The honey and bananas made this delish. I'm gonna make it again for lunch tomorrow. Thanks!

Mexican Chicken and Black Bean Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
Loved this. Cut the chicken in strips and put in a bowl with taco seasoning/tomato sauce mixture...Then I cooked that over the stove. This really hit the spot. Thanks!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies VII

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
My husband was craving something sweet and I had the ingredients for these. They were better than expected! I didn't have self-rising flour so I added some baking powder. Made a half a pan instead of a full. I will use this recipe again! This was a somewhat healthy treat. Thanks.

Chocolate Toffee Crunch Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2006
These crunch bars are great but it's a lot easier if you melt the chocolate chips first. When I tried to just sprinkle them and wait for them to melt, it didn't work or look very good.

Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
Great recipe. Cauliflower and nutmeg sure are a perfect marriage. I pureed some of the cauliflower with milk to make the soup thicker. My two year old even liked this. Thanks!

Crispy Orange Beef

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
This definitely isn't good for you, but it tastes awesome! The broccoli and brown rice I served this with, made me feel a little less guilty for making my family beef covered in sugar for dinner. I doubled the sauce by the way.

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2009
I'm surprised more people didn't write about how sopping they were from butter on the bottom. The overall taste was good, but they have WAY too much butter and that was unappetizing.
