Cheesy Baked Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2014
I got this recipe from a friend a few years ago and have made some variation of this dozens of times since then. My recipe includes a teaspoon of baking powder, which makes it puff up nicely. As written this recipe is five star, but here are some other things you can do. If you want to speed up the baking process, put it in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes, then turn the heat down to 350 for another 20-25 minutes. I sometimes add spinach and mushrooms instead of diced chilies. I usually use just 8 oz. of reduced fat sharp cheddar to cut down on fat and calories, and I use eggbeaters instead of whole eggs. You can substitute olive oil for the butter, too. It keeps pretty well for a few days, but is best when it's fresh out of the oven.

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
Creamy and delicious with just the right amount of chocolaty-ness. This recipe makes enough to generously frost two batches of cupcakes (i.e., 4 dozen). I made a batch of cupcakes today and will refrigerate the rest of the frosting for another batch next weekend. I better hide it from myself; I know I'll be tempted to take a taste now and then.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2012
Very moist and tasty bread - loved it. I made the exact recipe (which should be a prerequisite for a review -- you shouldn't review a recipe unless you actually made the recipe!). It occurred to me that the people that had trouble with the bread not being done may have used larger bananas, therefore more wet ingredients. I found that 6 medium bananas made exactly three cups mashed, which I think is the right proportion for this recipe. My only complaint is that the recipe is way more than four 3x7 pans' worth! I increased to six 3x7 pans and still had a god-awful mess in my oven. I'll use 7 or 8 small pans next time, or use larger loaf pans. I'll also try substituting some whole wheat flour to be more healthy. Thanks for sharing this delish recipe!

Fresh Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
I've been making this for a few years now. This is too much raw onion for me -- so I use about 1/4 the amount shown in this recipe. I also plump the raisins before adding, and throw in a can of slivered water chestnuts for added texture. To save calories I use Splenda instead of sugar and light mayo (and no one knows the difference). Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe!

Green Chile Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2013
I make this recipe often because it keeps well -- you can have it left over for the next few days. As is, the recipe is perfect, but here are a few changes that can easily be made with good results: Use egg whites in the carton in place of whole eggs to save a few calories (you'll never miss the yolks with all that cheese in there); 1/4 cup = 1 egg. Low fat cheese also works well. You can leave out either the spinach or the chilies, or add mushrooms, green onions or zucchini. I always make it in a 13 x 9 pan (sprayed with non-stick spray) and eliminate the pie crust step. Baking time is about the same as described in the recipe.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
The best flavor apple pie ever. I mix the apples with the filling/sauce before putting into the crust - works better for me.

Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Strata

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2014
I followed the recipe with the exception of adding more bacon. It was tasty, but too dry -- I will use less bread next time, and will also try using milk instead of 1/2 and 1/2 to save a few calories. I'll also try other ingredients such as ham instead of the bacon, and maybe some diced green chiles. It's good enough to try again with some tweaking.

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
Delish! I chill the mixture before rolling into balls, then freeze the balls before dipping. Adds to the prep time, but makes it easy. I usually end up melting more chocolate for dipping than the recipe calls for. The sprinkled crumbs on top didn't stick well for me, so I just skip that part.

Pork Loin and Cabbage

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
Great quick comfort food meal. I had a piece of pork sirloin that I needed to use (cheaper, tougher cut), and I cut 1/2 inch slices across the grain instead of using chops. I also added some chopped onion, as suggested by other reviewers. It worked well, and was delicious!

Chocolate Toffee Crunch Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
Tasty recipe, but judging the recipe as it's written it doesn't deserve 5 stars. I followed the recipe exactly the first time, and although the bars were good, half of the crumb mixture was left as crumbs in the pan. Will add more butter to the crust next time, as suggested. And, I will double the toffee as suggested by other reviewers because it was a little skimpy. I will also cut them before completely cool so they don't break (which they did). That said, the bars were good enough to give the revised recipe another try.

Salmon Loaf with Roasted Red Peppers

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2014
I must admit I didn't follow the recipe exactly, because I needed to use up some leftover fresh salmon that I cooked last night, so didn't use canned salmon. I adjusted the quantities to suit the amount of salmon I had, and thought it was delicious! The peppers and seasonings add nice flavor that I haven't found in other salmon patty or salmon loaf recipes, but do not overwhelm the delicious flavor of the salmon. Instead of making a loaf, I used cupcake tins. Next time I may increase the oven temp, because I had to add time for it to be done. We added some tzatziki dip and/or a little jalapeno Greek yogurt dip (from Costco) on the side, and it was yummy. Thanks for sharing!

Ham and Brussels Sprout Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
This is a list of ingredients that I would never have come up with on my own, but I'm so glad to have found this recipe! Great way to use left-over ham without a lot of potatoes or pasta; just veggies. I didn't have sauerkraut on hand the first time so substituted some shredded cabbage. The second time I just skipped it. I found that you can use significantly less oil (like half) without changing the flavor or consistency. I would suggest decreasing the cooking time a little to prevent the Brussels sprouts from getting mushy. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe!

Raspberry Ribbons

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
These just might be the new favorite Christmas cookie at my house! Easy and delicious. I will double the recipe next time. I added almond extract to the glaze as suggested in other reviews, and it was delicious. I used a chopping blade to cut them while still a little warm, and did't have a problem with crumbling.

Feta and Sun-Dried Tomato Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
Great flavor combination. Pounding the chicken is kind of tedious, but necessary to get it thin enough to wrap around the filling. Otherwise the filling seeps out (but still tastes good!). This recipe is a keeper.

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
So delicious! Not a low calorie meal, but a wonderful special occasion dish. Always gets raves at my house. I don't tweak this recipe at all - it's perfect.

Hearty Winter Casserole Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
Great flavor, and very satisfying! My husband loved this. It was SO easy and quick, but tastes like it simmered on the stove for hours. The sausage can be omitted for a hearty meatless meal.

Calico Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2014
I've made these for years and they are perfect! I sometimes leave out the ground beef if using this as a side dish with other heavy foods.

Curried Salmon Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2014
This is excellent! I've made it as written and loved it. However last night I didn't have any salmon, nor an apple. So I used cooked chicken and threw in some frozen peas. Also excellent! Another thing I do on occasion is to use coarsely chopped peanuts in place of the walnuts. The dressing is perfect and can be used with a variety of ingredients.

Six Week Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2014
I got this recipe from my mom many years ago, and they're the best bran muffins ever. Her recipe was 1/3 this size and much more manageable for a smaller family (uses a quart of buttermilk). I usually use half whole wheat flour, half white, and I sometimes add raisins or blueberries. Thanks for sharing!
