Feta Cheese Foldovers

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
I added sun dried tomatoes and roasted red peppers and used the fillo mini cups from the freezer section. Loved them, but they are definitely for feta lovers only!

Buckeyes I

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
I make 2-4 batches every year. Favorite technique: microwave 1 pkg semisweet choc chips with 1/4 block paraffin. (15-20 seconds at a time, stirring to prevent scorching.) When dipping, swirl the bottom edge against a fork to prevent puddling at the base. I do NOT recommend adding shortening to the choc, that just makes it too soft and sweaty at room temps. I get 7-8 dozen per batch; I guess I roll them small. The ratios are perfect. Too sweet? Seriously? It's a BUCKEYE! If your chocolate is grainy, you scorched it. If your dough is crumbly, work it with your hands. Really. This recipe does NOT need altering.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
This is the best ever - wish I could give it 6 stars! I halved the recipe for 5 mini loaves, baked at 325 for 45 minutes. I used 4 bananas, 2 eggs, 2 tsp vanilla, and 1 c. toasted chopped walnuts. Also used the topping mentioned in another review (1/2 c brown sugar, 1/2 c flour, 3 T butter, 1 t cinnamon and 1/3 c walnuts). The topping really put this recipe over the top!!

Very Easy Mushroom Barley Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
This was excellent! I thought the barley was still too firm at 50 minutes - allow a little more time if you like it tender. Great flavor though, thanks for this recipe!

Chicken Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
I absolutely loved this. I used chicken breasts instead of a carcass, boiled in broth and water for 2 hours. I also added some sliced carrot for color. Very easy to make. Great fall dish, thanks for posting this!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
We ate half right away and froze half right after rolling - and they were awesome both ways! This is not an inexpensive recipe though, so I'll probably just use it to impress company (which it did).

Lentil Soup with Lemon

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2014
I didn't have tomato paste, and I skipped the blender step. This soup was heavenly. It was very simple to prepare and was ready to eat in 45 minutes. I made it two servings by cutting the lentils to 1/2 cup, still in 4 cups of liquid. One serving came out to 179 calories, with 11.6 g protein and 12.6 g fiber. I am extremely impressed with this one! Thank you for posting it!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
I used the egg slicer suggested in another review to reduce time chopping the fruit. The fruit I used was so ripe that no added sugar was necessary. I also coated the tortillas whole and stacked them to slice, which saved time. But total prep time for me was still nearly an hour. I took it to a pot luck, and it got great reviews! Thanks for posting this.

Lasagna Roll Ups

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
I needed almost 2 boxes of noodles, since this made 24 rolls (and I thought 2 rolls was a perfect serving size). I added lots of minced garlic and oregano and some black pepper to the cheese mixture. Soft tofu blended right in to the cheese mix. Whole wheat noodles added fiber, and reduced fat ricotta helped reduce the fat a little. The teenagers loved it, and one of them swears he hates tofu. I would have needed more sauce if I wasn't freezing so many of them the day I made them.

Healthy Garden Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
I probably would only give this 4 stars on taste alone, but it gets the 5th one for being both super healthy and super easy to prepare. I think the lime was too dominant though - next time I may reduce it or add a little more sugar. Still, a double batch was gobbled up at a cookout. Thanks for the recipe!

Greek Pasta Salad I

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
I left out the basil (allergies) and the pepperoni (to lower the fat) and only had a few hours to marinate it, and it still went over very well at a cookout. I also doubled the garlic (minced) and topped it with shredded parmesan. I used sliced portabellas and whole wheat penne pasta too, which gave the dish a nice earthy look. Definitely a keeper.

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
I had no faith whatsoever in my ability to make fudge, but this turned out perfect! I used the 1-2-3 cup changes suggested by other reviews. And in my grocery, powdered sugar and confectioner's sugar are completely identical food items. Don't spend the extra 50 cents for a name brand. No need. Thanks for posting this awesome easy recipe!

Zucchini Casserole I

Reviewed: May 23, 2008
I was skeptical when this went in the oven, because it doesn't really look like a casserole, but I took it to a pot luck and it was a big hit. I used 1/3 c. olive oil, italian breadcrumbs, and both yellow squash and zucchini. I also sprinkled more cheddar on the top for the last 10 minutes of baking. People gobbled it up and several asked for the recipe.

Sarah's Applesauce

This was heaven. I need to get quicker at peeling apples, because I'm lazy and I'd like to eat this a lot! Thanks for sharing it!

French Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
Finally, I can make real French bread. My first try was a bit too dense becuse the pan popped in the oven and deflated the loaf a little, but that was no fault of the recipe - and it didn't stop us from eating it all when it was still warm!

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
This is the easiest chicken recipe I have ever made! I used potatoes instead of the tin foil balls, sprinkled the chicken with "Montreal Chicken" spice, and tossed in some baby carrots. Eight hours on low. The chicken was moist and tender and the house smelled wonderful!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
Simple, tasty, delicious, exactly as is, and easy to adjust to personal tastes. Browning the beef is unnecessary work and mess. I usually double this and increase the veggies, because it freezes great for weekday lunches.
