Easy Sesame Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2014
I would reduce oil by half & add 2-3 Tbs. sesame oil, to improve flavor. Reduce salt or use reduced sodium soy sauce. Would make again with changes.

Sesame Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2014
I would use less sesame seeds & add 1-2 Tbs. of sesame oil, to improve sesame flavor without so many seeds to deal with. Overall, a good recipe.

Cinnamon Supper Cake

Reviewed: May 9, 2013
I was expecting this cake to actually have cinnamon in it. And, although I could add that myself & will the next time, I don't think it is right to call this a cinnamon cake without it in the batter. Take away the glaze & there would be no cinnamon.

Scrambled Egg Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2013
Lovely recipe. I would probably use ham or bacon alternately, as well. So convenient. I don't understand, when folks say, they won't or might not try the recipe again, just because it needs more spice. Can a person not pick up the cayenne or red pepper flakes & put some in? That makes no sense to me.

Baked Salmon Fillets Dijon

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
Awesome...love salmon, love mustard! Someone referred to it, as a patty. I think someone is confused. I would have liked to have given 4 1/2 stars. Anyway, thanks CHRISTYJ.

Healthier Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
I reduced light sour cream by half, so I could have some light butter & used 2% Cheddar cheese. Yum. Might use turkey bacon, next time.

Mound Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
Needless to say, I love these ingredients but cutting sugar. This recipe is basically Magic Cookie Bars, made the hard way. Mixing coconut & sweetened condensed milk together & trying to spread it out, called for a way to make it easier to spread by one lady. No need, just do the layers: Melt butter in the pan in oven. No sugar is needed--GC crumbs already have sugar in them, so does flaked or shredded coconut & SC milk. Sprinkle graham crumbs over melted butter & press it out. You don't have to bake this crust separately either. Unless, you prefer it that way. My recipe's way, pours SC milk gently over whole crumb area--spreading a little,if needed. Add each remaining ingredient, pressing down on each layer, lightly to secure. I continue with this order: chocolate chips, coconut, & add nuts, if you like. MCB's call for nuts. Then bake, until golden, about 15-20 mins. The picture that is shown, with huge hunks of chocolate, would be too hard to eat & probably too rich, to suit me. If I made them that way, I would most likely cut into smaller squares or bars.

Zucchini Slaw

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2012
I like zucchini, & this recipe is very nice. But, when I think of slaw, I think 'raw'. I hadn't thought of it, prior to seeing the title of this recipe, for some reason. After all,there is broccoli slaw. So, I plan to see how I like raw zucchini slaw.

Aussie Breakfast Egg Mess

Chris' Bay Area Burger

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2012
I guess the olive oil is making the hamburger 'juicy', but I would only add it to ground beef, if it was very lean meat. And, I didn't add but a fraction of the salt. My husband & I have high blood pressure, a lot of salt would be bad for it. I would take that into consideration, if I were making these for quests.

Oatmeal Carmelitas

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
These are so yummy! I love caramel & chocolate. Someone said they were bland, I don't get that. These remind me somewhat of Magic Cookie Bars. The main difference, being the coconut in the MCBs. Someone also, called them Goober Cookies. Goobers are peanuts, so maybe they originally had peanuts in them. I prefer the walnuts, in this recipe. The nuts & oatmeal actually give you something healthy. ha

Cream Cheese and Chopped Dried Beef Ball

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2012
I sub onion & garlic powder for the ones with salt. Then, you might not find it necessary to rinse the beef. I left celery salt, but if I make it again, I might try celery seed, as a sub.

Crispy Rice Candy

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2012
Yummy, but is a little much w/2lbs. of wh.choc. Also, not sure, if I like the marshmallows, that much. I have sampled a similar recipe from an acquaintance; it had Captain Crunch peanut butter cereal & little stick pretzels in it, along with this recipe's other ingredients, except no marshmallows. Oh, that person poured her's onto waxed paper or in a pan w/waxed paper, & when solid, would break into sections. To LSHEPLY, in a review from 'ellisa', she said most puffed rice contains malt/malt extract, which is NOT gluten free. Thought you'd like to know.

Garlic Aioli

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2012
Very good. I love garlic! I did reduce salt & lemon juice, since my husband & I watch salt, due to high bp. And, he is a little sensitive to citrus. I love the freshness of lemon. Whoever said, it tastes like mayonnaise, that's right; it's suppose to. The title means garlic mayonnaise. I also love mayonnaise. It is the dressing that made my mom's slaw taste so great! Of course, it had other tasty ingredients, as well.

Good--would use a little less mustard. Still like my own recipe, so might alternate between them.

Margaret's Southern Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2012
Just as good as my Aunt Mary's! Gloria, one person, in their picture, decided to use marshmallows, instead of meringue. See the five other pictures. :)

Hash Brown Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2012
Good; variations are many. To Shonda, you could just put it under the broiler for a couple of minutes. If your skillet handle isn't ovenproof, use a couple of sheets of aluminum foil to mold over handle, & it is protected just fine.

Crispy Chicken Strips

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2012
Yummy, dipping in egg prior to crumbs. Covergirl, a salt-free product would be like Mrs. Dash, for instance. I'm sure there are more different kinds out there too.

Easy and Delicious Chicken and Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2012
I only use about half of the onion soup mix due to saltiness. If want more soup mix type onion, I can add dried or dehydrated onion that is found on the spice aisle. To Alymade, if you take all the seasoning (soup mix) away, bland is what you get. So, don't blame the recipe.
