Mom's Candied Yams with Caramel

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2012
I decided to look for another candied yam recipe for Thanksgiving just because I was tired of the same old one that I had been using. I found this one, and it looked easy to do. So I followed the recipe exactly, and it came out great! The only problem is that it was a small amount. I want to double it next time and just use one can of pineapple, and more of the caramel in it. This is just my preference of course, and has nothing to do with this great recipe.

Calico Bean Soup

Reviewed: May 30, 2012
I changed this recipe to fit into the large crockpot that I have. I used 1 cup of all the beans and peas. I used 2 chicken bouillon cubes, and used 1 tea. of celery seeds. I used turkey ham, and 1/4 cup of dehydrated carrots. I added to this recipe 1/2 tea. dried thyme, 3/4 tea. garlic powder, and 1/4 tea. cumin. Then I just let the crock pot do it's thing! My husband said that this was great and to make it again soon, and he is not a soup person at all. I have put all the beans and peas together, and want to jar some of this up to give as a gift. I will just have to add the turkey ham, and the seasonings. That's why I tried it with all the dry ingredients to see if it would work out, and sure enough it did. Just love this soup!!!!

Cheesy Cauliflower Couscous

Reviewed: May 30, 2012
I gave this a rating of 2 stars because I did not like the way it tasted. All I did was boil the cauliflower florets instead of using the microwave. That is because I really don't care to use the microwave for cooking food. This came out dried out at the temperature of 375 degrees F. Maybe if the temperature was lower, and the dish was covered it might of came out better.

Dark Chocolate Cherry Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
I now have two favorite fudge recipes that I love from Allrecipes. I made this recipe exactly, and put the cherries in last and stirred gently like a reviewer said. I loved this fudge, and I don't like cherries. It was great after I tasted it!!!

Cookies 'n' Creme Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
I wanted a different fudge recipe for a change. So I decided to try this one and another one from allrecipes. I used the 3 cups of white chocolate chips like a reviewer said. I also just broke the oreo cookies in half, and did not use the crumbes like another reviewer said. I tell you this is my new favorite fudge, and it was a hit at Christmas. Will keep this recipe for sure!!!!

Jambalaya

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
I have to say that I totally changed this recipe due to my tastes and on what I had on hand. I used olive oil instead of the peanut oil. I used a Kroger (Smith's) ground country sausage instead of the andouille sausage. I used two (1/2 inch) slices of a turkey ham instead of the chicken breasts. I added more of the vegetables, and used garlic grandules instead of real garlic. I used some fire roasted tomatoes with garlic instead of the crushed Italian style. I used a wild rice and brown rice mixture that I cooked ahead of time to make sure that it was cooked. I then let this simmer for about 30 minutes to let the flavors blend together. It turned out so good that my husband can hardly wait for me to make it again. Thanks for the great recipe starter, and I think I will try it again and maybe I will use all fish items. Who knows!

Chinese Egg Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2011
I made this soup two times and both times it was just missing something. I made it with the peas, and I made it without the peas.

Spanish Rice Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
This recipe looked so easy and so I decided to give it a try. I don't think I had the right Spanish-style rice mix (maybe I'll try rice-a-roni) next time. I used Uncle Ben's Spanish Style ready rice, and it wasn't seasoned that much. Then instead of using the Mexican-style stewed tomatoes I used fire roasted diced tomatoes that I had on hand. I decided to taste it and it was a bit bland. I decided to add 1 tea. black pepper, and 1/2 tea. cumin, and 1/2 cup Pace Medium Picante Sauce. This is a great start for a soup, but next time I think I am going to add some more ingredients like maybe some green chili or jalapeno's. I may even try what some of the other reviewers added. Thanks for the easy making starter soup!

Pink Fluff

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
Was looking for a way to eat cottage cheese, because I can't stand the stuff. I have only one way that I will eat it, but now I have two ways. The only problem with this is the cherry pie filling, and maybe the pineapple. I am a disbetic and it tends to raise my blood sugar, and so if I can find a way to use something sugarfree instead I will give it another go. The reviews were very helpful. Thanks!

Slow Cooker Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
This was so good! That even my husband who doesn't even care for chicken loved it. I was looking for a recipe that was for chicken legs when I can across this recipe, and I liked the ingredients. I did however change some things to what I had, and because I was in a hurry. I used dehydrated onions and garlic, and used !/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper instead of chili powder. I found out my cayenne pepper is really, really hot, and that is why I used only half the amount. So I can't wait to try this again with chicken breast like it calls for. Thanks for the recipe!

Rice and Lentil Soup in a Jar

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
What a hurt so good soup! I wanted to try this soup, but I had to go out for the day. So I put the ingredients into my crock pot. I did change some of the ingredients. Like I used two bouillon cubes, 2/3 cups of wild rice, 2/3 cup red lentils, 1/4 teaspoon of celery seeds (because I was out of celery), 1 (13 oz.) can of chicken breast, 1/2 cup barley, 1 (14.5 oz.) can of mecian style stewed tomatoes (crushed by hand), and 1 (4 oz.) can of diced green chili. The barley, and tomatoes came from other reviewers, and what a great added addition they were to this soup. When I was ready to eat I put a few drops of lime juice in, and my husband put lime juice and some smoke flavored chipotle tabasco sauce in his. This is a keeper! Thanks for the great lentil recipe that I was wanting.

Cabbage Beef Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
I gave this recipe 3 stars because it was way to salty for me and my husband. There is already salt in the canned kidney beans, tomato sauce, and in the bouillon cubes. I would suggest that the salt be left out, and then if you desire more than you can add it when you eat it. The cumin was a bit over powering, and I would suggest that it be dropped maybe to 1 teaspoon.

Southwestern Rice and Bean Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
I am normally a green leaf type of salad person, but I wanted to try something new. I used some frozen corn that I had instead of the can corn that it called for. I let the corn thaw out a bit while I cooked the rice. This was a great tasting salad, but next time I think I will try it with wild rice. For health reasons I need to stay away from white rice. This is a keeper-Thanks!

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
I loved how easy this was to prepare! I did make a few minor changes. Instead of garlic salt I used some dry garlic flakes, because I have to watch my salt intake. I also changed the chili seasoning mix to cayenne pepper (powder). This again was due to my watching the salt content. Next time I think I will add some Mexican style stewed tomatoes, because I just love tomatoes. My husband liked this chili so much that he said to keep this recipe!

Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
I will not go back to my old way of making deviled eggs again! I used Miracle Whip instead of Mayo, and used Real bacon bits crushed finer like in one of the reviews mentioned. I couldn't believe how fast they went, and the compliments that I received. I can't wait to try this receipe again with some of the other ingredients that were mentioned from other reviews. Great receipe-Thanks!

Make-Ahead Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
Followed this recipe except for using black pepper instead of the white pepper. I like this recipe because I was able to freeze these meatballs after they cooled off. Will use this recipe again, and I'm giving it to my son who loves to cook. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Meatball Orzo Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
I wanted some soup because I was sick. I decided to try this one because it looked so easy to make, and I am so glad I did. I followed the recipe almost exactly. What I did was cover the soup while it was simmering, and I didn't leave it uncovered like it says to do. I wanted more broth to eat, and I just wanted to eat one bowl of it. It was so good that I ate two bowls! My husband loved it so much that he said I should give this recipe 10 stars. This is a keeper for sure!

Instant Millionaire Pie for Diabetics

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
I wanted to make this for Thanksgiving, but after reading the reviews I realized that I needed to get the firmness perfected. It took 4 attempts, and realized that it works better with name brand ingredients. I used two boxes of Jello brand pudding that was sugar free and fat free. Also used 1 1/2 cups of 2% milk instead of 1 cup. Used cool whip brand Lite, and cut the pecans down to 1/2 cup because of the calories. It came out great. So for 1/8 of a slice it now has 177 calories, 11 g. sugar, 10 g. fat, 4 g. sat. fat, 17 g. carb's. Now I have the perfect desert-THANKS!

Slow Cooker Chicken Creole

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
This recipe is Great, and I definely will make it again. I changed it a bit. I didn't have any chicken breast, but I had some chicken tenderloins that I used. I didn't have any Creole-style seasoning, and so I used the cajun seasoning that I had. I didn't have stewed tomatoes, but I had some diced tomatoes. I didn't have a can of mushrooms, but I had fresh mushrooms that I used. I didn't have a fresh jalapeno, but I used two small cans of diced green chili. I did however use two things that are not not this recipe, and that was two chicken bouillon cubes and one cup of water. Thanks for the recipe!!!!

Poultry Seasoning

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
Followed the recipe except that I cut back on the salt by 1 tablespoon. My sister was over for lunch when we tried it for the first time. She raved about how good the chicken was. What my husband did was put some of this seasoning in a small bowl and added olive oil to it. Then he brushed some on the chicken before he grilled it. Thanks for this great recipe, and I will definely use it again.
