Cinnamon-Roasted Almonds

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
I really loved this little snack. I brought it to a New Years Eve get together and it was perfect to sit around and munch on while playing games. I would definitly make these again & even think about giving them out in tins for the holidays. (I did add the brown sugar as others had suggested.) 5 stars for sure!

California Kabobs

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2009
The marinade was really good, although I tripled it so that I could also soak the vegi's in the sauce. I also omitted the mushrooms (we don't care for those) and added broccoli, squash & zucchini. I will surely make this recipe again this summer!

Easy Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2007
I had a leftover pie shell so I decided to pour the mix into that and it was pretty good. I also substituted turkey-ham for pork ham & added green onions, salt and pepper and it turned out delicious!! I was really glad I added the green onions & spices because it really gave it nice flavor. It was very easy to whip together and I quite enjoyed it! I'm adding this to my recipe book for sure!

Triple Threat Fruit Smoothie

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
Great consistency, I liked the seedy gritty texture from the berries. It was really yummy! I changed the ingredients up a bit by adding banana instead of kiwi and adding blackberries & respberies as well. But will keep trying different combo's. Very good! A new breakfast must have.

Crunchy Turkey Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
This was a GREAT recipe for my leftover thanksgiving turkey! For the most part I stuck to the recipe, but I did change the quantities. I added more turkey & walnuts and less apple & celery. It definitly needed more turkey than 1 cup. My own twist was to add about 1/4 cup dried cranberries and that gave it a nice zing. I liked this sandwich a lot, but it could be served as a salad a well.

Phenomenal Chicken and Pasta in Creamy Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
I don't know if it's really fair that I rate this recipe, because I didn't stick to the direction whatsoever. The directions just looked too long & complicated for me, so I just did it my own way. First, I cooked the chicken in olive oil, garlic, salt & pepper. Once lightly browned I added pine nuts & sun dried tomatoes and simmered together. In a seperate pot I added 1 pint of heavy cream, 1/2 a jar of pesto, & between 1/2 cup & a cup of swiss cheese and boiled together. Then I boiled the penne for 10 minutes, then drained. Next I added everything together in a big pot & stirred. Viola! That was it. Much simpler by my standards. If this had been served to me in a restaurant, I would have been very pleased.

Peanut Butter Temptations II

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
Initially I put the peanut butter dough in mini muffin wrappers because in the picture that's how it looked. They ended up sticking to the paper. So for the second batch I put them straight into the muffin tin & they worked much better that way. My husband was satisfied either way. Nice twist on my usual peanut butter cookies w/ kisses...more peanutbuttery and a different look from the other cookies on my platter!

Vegetable Pizza I

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
I really didn't change much when making this, it was great! I just substituted cucumbers in place of tomatoes because I don't personally like them. I also cut back to 1 package of cream cheese, because it made plenty of "sauce" with 1. And I also didn't use the entire ranch packet. I will make this again for sure...it's a keeper!

Chicken Puffs

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
Yum! These are really good! I made them for dinner & my husband didn't really like them too much, but I sure did! I will make these again but as an appetizer and bring them to an upcoming potluck. Can't wait to see how they go over there.

Toasted Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
My 6 year old son made this (with my help ofourse.) He loved them & gobbled them all up before the rest of the family even had a chance to give them a taste. What a great Halloween memory to savour!

Chicken Taquitos

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2008
I don't give a lot of 5-star ratings, but I really dug these & my husband did too! My only complaint was that they were difficult to roll. But when I rolled them quickly & fried them 4 at a time they worked out o.k. Just took a little trial & error. I did however change the recipe quite a bit. Here's how I did it: 3 chicken breasts boiled & shredded 1 1/2 cups fiesta blend cheese 2/3 cups thick salsa 1 4 oz. can green chili 2 tbsp. taco seasoning This is a great addition to our "Mexican Monday" rotation!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
This was a really tasty treat. I would suggest cutting back on the pepper, because I thought 1/2 tsp was too overpowering. 1/4 tsp would be plenty in my opinion. I also substituted 1 cup milk with 1 cup heavy cream. I wanted to make the soup creamier and also I had some cream leftover that I didn't want to waste. I also increased the celery to 1/2 cup. That was a good call. More would have been fine too. I also doubled the amount of ham because I was serving this as the main meal for my family. Really great flavor, I will make this again, but with less pepper next time!

Beef Nacho Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
I tried this recipe but made a few alterations. First, I substituted ground beef with ground turkey. Always a healthier choice. Then I replaced chili powder with 2 tbsp. of taco seasoning. I also reduced the salsa to 1 cup & added 1 can of black beans in with the corn. Instead of 3/4 mayo I used 1/2 cup of sour cream & 1 heaping tbsp. of mayo. Once complete, this was really easy to make and so good! I totally loved it! My husband said it tasted like Nachos Grande. It's also is a good recipe if you have broken up pieces of nacho chips left at the end of a bag. I found the smaller more crumbled up pieces filled it in great. Thanks for the new recipe!

Pumpkin Cheesecake II

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
I can't think of any complaints with this recipe. The crust was especially good! I made it exactaly as the recipe called for only omitting the lemon juice & 1 spice that I didn't have. I was actually a little surprised that it came out so well because I live in a high altitude climate, so sometimes baking can be qite challenging...but it came out PERFECT...no cracks whatsoever!

California Cherry and Walnut Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
I pretty much stuck to the recipe, except I just didn't use chicken because I don't care for meat on my salads. Great meal to have while watching calories. Quick to whip up too! Yum!

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
Even my husband who is a meat-a-tarian really enjoyed this. It was really easy to make, which is great for me. I served it with corn bread & spanish rice & it made a great family meal.

Pumpkin Ginger Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
Nice fall recipe! I didn't have crystallized ginger or cloves, so I added a little nutmeg to even it out. The cupcakes came out nice & moist even baking at a high altitude. I topped with a cream cheese frosting & then sprinkled with cinnamon sugar for a touch of pretty. They tasted even better the next day after the frosting had stiffended up a bit.

King Ranch Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
My suggestions to improve this would be: cook at a higher temp, maybe 350 for a longer amount of time. Maybe 30 minutes instead of 20. We thought it was luke-warm and definitely could have been hotter. I boiled the chicken, but next time I'm going to pan fry it with seasonings to make the chicken more flavorful. This dish tasted great though. I will make this again for sure.

Ambrosia Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
I did change up this recipe quite a little bit. I just used regular flavor marshmallows instead of the flavored, but next time I think I will do the fruity marshmallows. I also added a little mayo too. Maybe 1/2 cup. Also I added a small can of marashino cherries (cut in half.) And about 1 cup of chopped walnuts as well. I chilled a good long time (approx. 6 hours...the longer, the better.) This was good. Great for an occasion with kids!
