Rita's Spinach Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2014
I was searching here for something with spinach and spaghetti sauce and this fit the bill! I followed closely to the recipe, except I stirred the pasta, spinach & my homemade sauce together then sprinkled with mozzarella and grated Parmesan cheese. I forgot to add the sour cream, but it didn't really need it.. This was really good and my spicy spaghetti sauce helped make it a flavorful dish.

Whipped Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2013
My cookies turned out nicely and look much like the picture...BUT they taste like sand! I'm so disappointed too, as these were a lot of work especially when using a hand mixer. I'm trying to decide if I should take them to work. After all, there are a lot of good reviews here so maybe it's just a preference. Wish I would have read a few of the negative reviews.

Lemon Garlic Hummus

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
I used this as a base recipe. I added cumin, a dash of emerils seasoning an extra garlic clove, and added only about 1/3 cup of olive oil. I don't have sesame on hand, so this recipe was perfect for me today and the flavor is great!

Luby's German Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
I ended up trying this pie because I had all the ingredients on hand. I read all the reviews before preparing and decided to tweek it a touch. Here is what I did: I added 2 Tablespoons of cocoa, used evaporated skim milk, added a cup of coconut and only had sliced almonds for the nuts. After it baked 45 minutes I checked it and it was real runny, that's when I realized that I had forgotten to add the cornstarch. So I baked it around 15 more minutes and let it rest for 30 minutes before slicing. It was perfect! - with a nice smooth creamy pudding-like texture. The nuts worked and the evaporated skim milk was fine. Hubby loved it with a glass of milk. So I recommend everyone to try this recipe.

Cream Puffs

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
My hubby and I are going to a friend's house for an Italian dinner tonight and I said I'd bring dessert. I had considered making cannoli but remembered making Cream puffs years ago and how everyone loves them. This recipe with all the wonderful advice on the reviews is perfect, so give it a try!! Here is my process: I added some vanilla extract to the dough and just dumped in all the eggs, at the end, while mixing with a hand mixer. That's good advice as it turned out great! I used a soup spoon to drop globs on parchment paper. My oven bakes a tad hot so I checked after 10 minutes and turned it down to 400 for the last 13 minutes. I also poked them with a toothpick when finished baking and let them cool in the oven with the door ajar. I only made 1/2 a batch of the filling and it nicely filled 20 of the puffs. For the filling, I put the milk, whipcream, extract & pudding into a plastic container and shook it up. (I added a dash of almond extract). After the puffs were cooled I sliced off the tops and filled with a spoonful of pudding. I replaced the top and dusted them all with powered sugar. YUMMY, YUMMY, YUMMY!. I think I'll fill the four remaining puffs with some Butter pecan Icecream for a special treat.

Winter Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
Hubby and I loved this recipe. It had all of my favorite things: sweet potatoes, chicken breasts, cranberries.. and the apple/onion/carrot mixture was really yummy. Here is a hint - slice the sweet potato lengthwise and put it flesh side down when microwaving. I followed the recipe as written and used Craisons(cranberry raisons). I saved all the leftover veggys and had them for lunch today - what a treat! I think this would be great with pork tenderloin also.

Basic Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
Really good basic ingredients. I used leftover turkey, and added to the recipe: a dash of garlic & onion powder, fresh ground pepper and some dried cranberries. I also used Hellmans Canola Mayonaise which cuts down the calories and is a very good option.

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
THIS RECIPE is a KEEPER! I just made these scones and they are wonderful. Hubby loved them and they would be an impressive scone for company too. I used the recipe for the cranberry/orange except used lemon zest (I didn't have an orange) and added 1 tsp vanilla as suggested by another reviewer. I also mixed them in my food processor. This made it sooooo easy! FYI - pulsed together dry ingred. then I cut the frozen butter into small chunks and pulsed, then added the sourcream/egg mixture, flavorings, and lastly fruit. It only took a few minutes and it was nicely mixed.

Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
Just made this recipe today for breakfast baked in a bread pan instead of a muffin tin. Taking in to account other reviews I made the following changes: 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour with 1/2 cup white flour, 1/4 cup splenda brown sugar BLEND along with a scant 1/2 cup grandulated sugar mixed with splenda. Added 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, 2 Tablespoons ground flax, 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, and 2 Tablespoons extra milk. The loaf took 35-40 minutes to bake. I sliced strawberries on the side and it was a healthy and really tasty breakfast. Husband love, love, loved it, and I did too! Try it - you'll not be sorry.

Fabulous Oatmeal-Bran Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
Just made this cake for Hubby's birthday. I wanted to find something that was healthier and this cake worked out great! Here are the changes I made: For the flour I used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup white flour. For the cup of white sugar I used 2/3 cup white sugar and 1/3 cup honey and 1/2 cup unsalted butter for the shortening. I also added: 1 teas. vanilla, some chopped walnuts and a handful of raisons. We are lovin it! Great warm from the oven and it doesn't need any frostening, although some fat free cool whip or dream whip made with skim milk would be an excellent topping.

Mashed Potato, Rutabaga, And Parsnip Casserole With Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
Was looking for a different mashed potato recipe to serve with our annual New Years Eve Lamb roast and found this one. It was perfect. The only changes I made was to cut back on the butter and instead added a little of the leftover broth to the mashed vegetables. I also sauteed the onion in mostly olive oil with a tablespoon of butter. Just Hubby and I and we loved this, but I plan to make a big batch for my next family potluck!
