Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
Followed everything in the recipe but added some vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon and 1/4 c dark choc chips and 1/4 c chopped walnuts and I made sure not to over stir. Made 2 mini loafs and cooked less time. Came out perfectly and moist.

Garlic Teriyaki Edamame

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
For those trying to eat the pod/shell, you don't. You pop them open and eat the soy beans out of them. When I first went to a Tempanyaki restaurant I didn't know what these were or how to eat them. I had a feeling we didn't eat the whole pod so I asked my sister and she showed me how to eat them lol. Yes it's easier to buy the beans already shelled but what fun is that?

Chili Rellenos Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
This was a good recipe. Something nice to eat every now & then. Wasn't a favorite. My son really liked it and ate up all the left overs. :)

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
Made this with canned apple filing and it was awesome. Neat thing is, you can really do whatever you want with this and it would be great (cherry pie filing, apricot, apples, etc)

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
My whole family really liked this. Unfortunately my husband took it out a bit too early and it was slightly gummy in a certain area. It needed to stay in longer and get browned more.

This tasted more like peppermint white chocolate. Everyone who ate it liked it.

Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
Fantastic. Will be making this regularly. I followed all of the directions except for 2 things (left the Thyme out-not a fan and we didn't have Worcestershire sauce so used Teriyaki). Everyone bragged about it.

Chocopeanutbanana Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
This recipe is awesome but we don't use choc syrup we used choc pwdr. After the first few times, we decided to change things up a bit. We now use 1 banana, 1/8 to 1/4 c creamy pb, 2 tbsp honey, 1 c of milk (coconut milk was awesome, next we'll try Almond milk with is healthier), 1 scoop of EAS choc fudge protein pwdr, 1 tbsp flax seed pwdr and some ice. Made it even more awesome. When I put some of mine in the freezer and accidently froze a bit of it, it kind of reminded me of a Wendy's shake, only healthy!

Banana Banana Strawberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
When looking for a strawberry banana smoothie, first thing I look for is the real fruit. I was shocked that the only strawberry in here is yogurt. I also never put extract in my smoothies so that can be left out. Using a banana is more than enough to give it a strong banana taste. It also doesn't need any sugar added. When blending smoothies with just fruit, it makes the fruit sugar more absorbable which leads to blood sugar spikes. (they advise adding a vegetable to slow that process down & avoid that). Adding some peanut butter also adds some protein. I also add protein powder and flaxseed powder to add protein & nutrients.

Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2013
I was looking for a smoothie recipe that used banana's & pb and ran across this. He just made it and I tasted it and it is very good. He also added some chocolate drink mix to make it chocolate. I think I would like it better a bit on the frozen side. Might try it with some crushed ice next time. My blender can't handle frozen fruit but it can handle already crushed ice from my freezer.

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
I make this every year for Thanksgiving. Only way I really like sweet potatoes. It tastes more like a yummy desert than a vegetable casserole. The pecan topping is the best part. I just made this for our Christmas dinner this year and my sister kept going on about how good it was. I told her I make this every year and she admitted that she never tried it before because she doesn't care for sweet potatoes. She got busted!!! Now she's a fan. :) Everyone raves about how good it is.

Raw Vegetable Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
Even though I made some changes to the type of veggies used, I feel I can give this a 5 star regardless. The dressing was made as is and you can really use any type of veggies to this and it's great. I don't like bacon in anything except BLT's or by itself so I omitted the bacon. I used reg unsalted peanuts instead of spanish nuts (don't like them) and I left out the celery and added 1 red bell pepper and a whole head of broccoli & cauliflower. Everything else was the same. Everyone loved it at our family Christmas dinner and my husband is a veggie nut so I knew he would love it. The cranberries & nuts give this an awesome wow effect.

Emily's Easy Sausage and Spicy Tomato Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2012
My favorite. I could eat this all day if the calories weren't a killer. I use spicy sausage though. I could use Rotel if I wanted it hotter but the spicy sausage is enough for us. This dip was the first to empty at a baby shower I gave and I'm making it for our carry-in at work in a few weeks. Can't wait.

Kevin's Sausage Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2012
I've had this twice but I use all spicy sausage (no regular). Like it a bit spicer. This made with cream cheese runs circles around the kind made with Velveeta. Making it for work next month for our carry in. My sister made it for my daughter-in-laws baby shower last month and it was the 1st to go. Should have doubled it.

Breakfast Pies

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
My family loves these but I think using 3/4 lb of sausage with only 3 eggs would be way too much sausage (for us). So I used 1/2 lb of sausage with 3 eggs & 1 cup of cheese. I used a small ladle to scoop the filling in and it worked perfectly.

Blackened Tilapia with Secret Hobo Spices

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2012
OMG, I LOVE this. I cheated and just bought Zatarains blackening seasoning to save time & amount of spices to buy. I also served it over brown rice instead of bread. I wouldn't have had any pan juices left over for bread anyways. For the brown rice: I used the brown rice in a bag and cooked it in chicken broth instead of water, when done, I added 1 tbsp butter, some garlic salt & worcestershire sauce. I placed this fish on top of the rice. Everyone loved it. Will make again.

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
This icing was fantastic tasting and it had no after taste like using shortening can leave. It might not be the best as far as having that 100% perfect wedding icing look but it gets the job done. It's great for piping swirls, grass/hair, etc but it looked just ok on the practice roses. Maybe others can have better luck making really good roses with this but we didn't. Thankfully, we didn't need roses. We used this to pipe a swirly cone on the cupcakes and then topped the cupcakes with a fondant flower. We also used this recipe as a crumb icing for the fondant covered belly cake my sister made. The difference was, for the crumb icing, the recipe was made exactly as called for. For piping, I made 2 batches of this recipe w/o any milk at all. For one, I left white. For the other, I added 1/4 packet of Duncan Hines Frosting Creations Strawberry Shortcake flavor and a little red coloring to make it a little more pink. I then put pink on one side of the piping bag and white on the other and swirled the two-tones icing onto the cupcakes. It would have been a lot easier had I used two separate bags & stuck them inside one bag than trying to get the 2 colors to go down one bag evenly. I had icing all over me but it got the job done. The two tone color was very pretty.

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
This is the 1st time I ever attempted meatballs and I really loved these. The sauce was really good. Tripled the recipe and took them to a baby shower. I had very little left over and had some requests for the recipe. The funny thing is, the entire time I was adding the sauce ingredients, I kept wrinkling my nose and thinking "this can't be good". I mean, cranberry sauce, chili sauce & lemon juice. Wow. But it was very good. I actually made these the day before I needed them. I baked the meatballs on a broiler pan so the grease would drip down and not pool around the meatballs. I then just placed them in a container, poured the sauce over them, put a lid on them and threw them in the fridge. The next morning at 8am, I dumped it all in the slow cooker to heat before the 1:00 baby shower. Perfect. The only change I made was adding a bit more minced onions and the bread crumbs were Italian flavored. That little bit of flavor didn't overwhelm the sauce at all.

Spicy Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
I would rate this a 4.5 only because I'm not a fan of Italian dressing or bell peppers. My husband, who loves both, really liked this as did a lot of the guests at the baby shower I took it to. I doubled the recipe and had plenty of left overs and people were taking big cup fulls home with them. Because I don't like Italian dressing, I made the following changes: 1/4 c Italian dressing 1/4 c olive oil Little lemon juice Little lime juice 2 sprigs of cilantro Plus I used real tomatoes as I didn't think canned tomatoes would be as good as fresh.
