Heavenly Zucchini Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2013
It was a nice healthy-type salad that used an abundant ingredient. I took it to a party and the recipe was requested by a family that appreciates healthy food. I will make it again next summer. I am going to try to make it a little more exciting.

Banana Cake II

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2012
I am laughing because other reviews said this cake was light. I must have done something wrong because, although the cake was moist, it was quite dense. The joke is, my son and daughter-in-law loved it because it was dense!. They have a favorite (expensive) bakery that makes very dense cakes and that is why they like it so well. Now, if I make it again, they will be disappointed if it turns out light. Lol. In any case, they want me to keep making this cake. I did make sour milk with vinegar. Maybe that had something to do with the problem or sucess. I guess I will find out when I make it again. The flavor was excellent.

Neat Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2012
Took this over to share with my son's family. Used 3 1/2 lbs. of hamburger so adjusted the recipe but did not add additional celery and sugar. Served with baked french fries. Easy, simple meal. I will make it again. Next time I will toast the rolls.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2012
Excellent recipe. I was looking for the lowest fat recipe but I did not have applesauce, yogurt or buttermilk. I decided to make this one without the crumb topping although, I did sprinkle the tops with a little cinnamon sugar. I had about a 1/3 cup of extra blueberries and decided to add them also. The batter is quite thick but don't worry it will have perfect results. My advice is not to stir too much. Just make sure the ingredients are combined well and that's it! My husband said they tasted "special".

Roll-Out Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
I have made many different recipes for cut-out cookies. I chose this one, this time, because I was in a hurry and did not have time to refrigerate the dough. I really liked how easy it was to roll out the dough; I liked the taste of the cookies; and I liked the texture of the finished cookies. I will definitely make these again. I did find that I needed to lower the temperature of my oven as I came close to burning the first ones. I also tried the glaze with sprinkles and that worked out well and dried fast. Excellent recipe. Thank you.

Decorator Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
I used this recipe to frost my cutouts at Christmas and was very pleased with the results. I definitely prefer a recipe with butter instead of shortening. Makes a lot of frosting which was good because I made many colors and had a lot of cookies with the Shortbread recipe that I used.

Shortbread Cookies II

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
I made two batches at Christmas with excellent results. I used my Super Shooter for one batch and prefer this recipe to any others for my spritz cookies. The batch that I rolled out were quite delicate but once they were baked and frosted, they held up well. Very tasty results. I will continue to make these cookies.

Pizza Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
Tried this recipe twice during Christmas holidays. It was very well received both times. Appeals to all age groups. I used onions, green peppers and pepperoni. Olives and mushrooms are not favorites of some of my guests. Thanks for an easy recipe.

Tortellini Salad I

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
By end of summer, my husband was not enthused about pasta or potato salad. He agreed this one sounded different for our planned picnic. We all really liked it. Since I left the small amount of leftovers at my son's house, I ended up making more for my husband, two days later. The lemon juice really gives it a fresh taste, I think. I was wondering if anyone had comments on using dry tortellinis. I used frozen tortellinis (19 0z)and followed the recipe otherwise as written.

Black Bottom Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
It's a winner! Everyone loved these cupcakes. I followed the ingredients and instructions as given except I only made 21 and used the remaining batter to cover the cream cheese mixture so that I could frost them and decorate with Fourth of July sprinkles. They only needed 20 minutes to bake. This recipe is much better than one I tried previously with a cake mix. They taste best chilled. Don't leave out the vinegar, you need it and you won't taste it. You will be glad you tried this recipe. Perfect and easy.

Chicken and Red Bean Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
We liked this casserole very much. I followed the original recipe except I used refried beans instead of red beans and I only used about 3/4 of the can. I didn't use raw onions or cilantro on top but had sour cream available as a topping. It was plenty spicy with the "Helluva Good" brand Monterey Jack with Jalapeno cheese. I really liked the sauce. There was just enough of all the ingredients to make the dish. By the way, our Maltese dog loved it too and wanted more.

Normal Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
Easy recipe with good flavor. I used light soy sauce and added two tablespoons of brown sugar. I sliced the breasts into thinner fillets. I also flipped them over during baking and basted them a couple of times to improve the light color on top.

Homemade Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
I was looking for something to serve with fresh strawberries that are slightly under ripe. This was fast, easy and I had all the ingredients. I should have read the reviews first as I did get a few small lumps. I will combine the dry ingredients with the milk before cooking next time. The sweetness will benefit these strawberries but for future, I will use only a 1/4 - 1/3 cup of sugar.

Candied Almonds

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
Tasted good but they were not crisp enough. I cooked them until all the moisture was gone. I will try another recipe, called "Cinnamon Roasted Almonds" as suggested by a reviewer. Maybe they will be crisper because they are baked.

Greek Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
It is a 5 with changes. I had two 5 oz. packages of feta (one was lowfat with Mediterranean seasoning) and ground beef. I looked for a recipe and this is the one that struck me. I loved the idea. I used 1 lb. of cooked penne, 1 1/2 lbs. ground beef, a 15 oz. can of diced tomatoes, a 26 1/2 oz. can of tomato sauce, 1 large clove of garlic sauteed with the onion, salt, and pepper but no parmesan, no cinnamon. I added one package of feta to the sauce. I combined the beef sauce and pasta in the casserole. For the white sauce I used the same amount of butter, 2 tablespoons of cornstarch with 3 tablespoons of flour and 4 cups of milk seasoned with salt and peper. I put 1/2 container of lowfat feta in this sauce and poured it over the pasta mixture. I sprinkled the rest of the feta on the top. I baked it for 25 minutes. My husband rated it a five.

Raspberry Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
This is now my new favorite Banana Muffin recipe. I like using canola oil because it is easier and healthier than using solid fats and have tried other recipes using oil. I did make a few changes. I added a teaspoon of baking powder since I wanted to make the bread lighter in texture for muffins. I had about 1/2 cup of leftover cranberry sauce that I added and did not use the nuts. I did not add any flavorings and enjoyed the banana and cranberry flavors. I made 20 muffins in paper liners and baked them for about 21 minutes. A delcious and satisfying breakfast.

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
These cookies were good but I agree with another reviewer who said that Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies III on this site were better. They are made with oil too and have better flavor and texture. I was thinking children and others who don't care for spices might prefer this one though.

E-Z Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
Perfect. The texture inside is moist and the exterior is a little crunchy on the edges. I have tried many other biscuits that were not nearly this good. I think the cup of milk is key. Also it is important not to stir biscuits too much. I definitely will be making these again and again.
