Holiday Green Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2013
Every Christmas eve, my grandma would serve this jello salad at her meatless dinner. When she passed, I inherited many of her handwritten recipes; this was not among them. I have been searching for this recipe and had been making versions of this salad for several years now trying to get it right. I knew the minute I made this recipe that it was 'the one'. The only difference is grandma used walnuts instead of pecans. This past Christmas, I set up this jello salad in a traditional bundt pan (just like grandma used to). Once set, I placed the bundt in the sink surrounded by warm water for 5 minutes, then flipped it onto a dish. Then guests used a pie slicer to cut themselves a wedge of jello. Perfect!

Wisconsin Native's Beer Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
I found this exact recipe in a local grocer's magazine. My problem: I had never made a cream/cheese based soup before....I added the cheese way too fast and in too hot of a pot, and turned my soup very very gritty. Note: after the roux is made (flour and butter mixture), remove from heat and allow the pot to cool for awhile, then add the cheese just a little at a time and stir. I made mine with Grain Belt Nordeast (the best beer out there in my opinion) and it was delicious....despite the gritty texture...this is a GREAT recipe and I will definetely try again!

Chicken Strawberry Spinach Salad with Ginger-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
While I loved this salad, my husband thought it was just "okay." I doubled this recipe and used a pound (small package) of boneless skinless chicken breast. Next time, I will definetely add a package of Splenda to the dressing and use 1/2 lite mayo, 1/2 non-fat greek yogurt. A very bright, delicious low-fat, low-calorie meal!

Crock Pot Cheesy Mushroom Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
I made this with reduced sodium canned soup and no salt added canned mushrooms. I used around 2.5 pounds of fresh chicken breast. I did not have celery flakes so I used 1/2 tsp celery seed. I did not have grated cheese so I used fresh shredded parm cheese. I really do think the sherry is the key ingredient here. I let it comingle in the crock pot for 12 hours on low. The chicken was juicy and falling apart with a fork. This had such a rich delicious flavor! Makes a terrific gravy so decided to serve with a side of mashed potatoes.

Rhubarb Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
Amazing! My only issue was with the topping. 1/4 cup butter mixed with the brown sugar and cinnamon....I mixed it up and it was very goopy, there was no way that was getting "sprinkled" onto the top of the cake. I ended up spreading it on and sorta marbling it into the top of the cake....still delicious!

Laura's Quick Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
When you make too many changes to a recipe you morph it into an entirely new recipe. That said, these are the changes I made to this recipe: I took the advice of many people who have reviewed this and omitted the soup altogether (I made this recipe earlier this winter with the soup and it tasted sorta like spaghettios) and used 2 cans diced tomatoes and 4 oz can of diced green chilis. I also used 1 can black beans and 2 cans chili beans. I added 4 oz water since it was quite thick as I was mixing it all up in the crock pot--which went on low for 8 hrs. The spices are terrific---you mess with the spices too much and you really have a different recipe than the original. This recipe is just fabulous, quite spicy, but if you don't like spicy then what are you making chili for?

Simple Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
This is delicious chili! A few changes I made: I browned the turkey, onions and garlic together in a pan. I used 4 cloves of garlic. I then combined all ingredients in a crockpot and put on low for 6 hrs. I totally left out the water and it was still bordering on stew consistency. I used diced instead of crushed tomatoes. I used one can of kidney beans and one can of chili beans. I only mashed the kidney beans. I left the spice combo alone, I mixed all the spices together before adding it to the crock pot. This spice combo, in my opinion, is close to PERFECT. Do not mess with the spices, if you do not have some--go buy them!

Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
Super tangy and delicious! I think the kind of BBQ sauce used will make a big difference in flavor. I used Big Jake's Northwoods Style BBQ sauce and I really taste the hickory flavor. I used less ketchup and more prepared mustard plus a little ground mustard, omitted the italian seasoning.

Pineapple and Pistachio Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
I just made this (in less than 10 minutes) and although there are many versions of this salad out there using pistachio pudding mix (including the side of the pudding box), so far this is my fav! The combo of vanilla and plain yogurt gives this a very savory, creamy flavor and smooth texture and the color is great for christmas! If you use non fat yogurts and cool whip lite you can cut the cals and fat even more!
