Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
I took others reviewers advice and used only butter. The key is to mix on high to get it to blend into icing. I put all the sugar in at once as well. I used all 4 cups of sugar and it was sweet. I love sweet, but this is too much for me, will make it again but only use 3 cups

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
LOVED IT!!! Per others' suggestions, I marinated the chicken and the taco sauce with water, about 3/4 C, over night actually. Put 1/4 C of salsa over each piece, baking uncovered for about 30 minutes, topped with Mexican blend cheese (that's what I had) and served with seasoned black beans, garnished with sour cream. AWESOME!!!!

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
I made half the amount, which fit into an 8x8 pan. Per other reviewers suggestions, I used half oil & half apple sauce. I also used a little over the amount of zucchini only because when I was grating it there was a small part leftover, so why not go ahead and use it. Also, I threw in a small handful of semi sweet chocolate chips. Mine were good, but definitely more cake like than brownie like. I had a small piece out of the oven and they were better the next day. They were very moist, were actually falling apart. I rated the recipe a 3 start because I'm not sure I'd call these brownies, but they were good, especially for having a veggie in them and less fat.

Chicken Pot Pie III

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2007
EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT!! I used a little over 2 cups of frozen veggies, which I blanched, 1 large potato cooked in microwave and then chopped, 2 cans of cream of chicken, 1/2 t thyme, a lil garlic salt & onion powder, 1/2 C milk for creaminess and I used 3 quarter chicken pieces, which I had cooked in the crock pot. All of this made enough for 2 pies (you can easily freeze half of it for later), but i used a large pyrex pan and it all fit perfectly. AMAZING! Definitely will make many times!

Spicy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2007
GREAT STARTER RECIPE!! I gave only 4 stars b/c I made some modifications as follows: no diced chili peppers or pepper sauce, 4 c chicken broth, 3 cloves fresh garlic, 1 T cumin, 1.5 c sauteed onions, 1/2 of a fresh green pepper for flavor removed prior to eating, pieces of ham chopped up & ham bones for flavor, added 1 can of petite diced tomatoes w/mild green chilis 1 hour prior to serving, I also pureed about 1/3 of the beans and added back. Topped each serving w/ Mexican cheese & sour cream...DELICOUS! Leftovers can easily be heated up or used in burritos or tacos!

Broccoli Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2007
I substituted 2 boxes of Jiffy corn muffin mix, used 5 eggs (per friend's suggestion who cooks this frequently), 1.5 sticks butter, sauteed onions first so it wouldn't be so strong, everything else the same, got RAVE reviews..Next time I may cut the butter back to just 1 stick. 2 ppl asked for recipe. Enjoy!

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
Not sure why, but my sauce never came together, butter and cream were completely seperate. Didn't bother to serve, opened a jar instead! I was really looking forward to it too...Maybe it was me??

Barbeque Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
AWESOME!!! I made some minor changes: sauteed some fresh minced onion and 1 clove garlic in small amount of EVOO, used 1 T prepared yellow mustard as I didn't have any dry, and I made a double bath of sauce, omitted the water, but only used 1 T of lemon juice, and used apple cider vinegar instead of regular it was great! Cooked as directed, except for last 15 minutes I did 7 of that in broiler on low, and meat was very moist and tender. Also, I only cooked 3 thighs and 3 legs...If you're gonna actually cook all 12 pieces I think you'll need more sauce! Can't wait to make again!! RAVE REVIEWS!!

Berries 'N' Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2007
Very good, easy and inexpensive fruit dip! I used a store brand, low fat sour cream, converted recipe to 5 servings, plenty! It was a wee bit tart (which could have been the low fat sour cream?), but it balanced out with the sweetness. It would be excellent over a bowl of mixed fruit or used on a strawberry shortcake or used on an angel food back with some berries. Definitely would make again!
