BLT Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 4, 2006
I like this recipe. More importantly, my husband LOVES this recipe. It is terribly simple to make, which is a plus. However, I have made a few changes as I have made this recipe again. I thought the pasta soaked up too much of the dressing as it sat and it kindof lost it's ranch flavor. I add more ranch as it sits until it is the consistency I like. Also, I started using Bacon Ranch to up the ranch flavor. Also, I use green onions instead of regular onions, and add about 2 cups of peas.

Deep Fried Cheese Curds

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2006
I havent tried this particular recipe, but as the wife of a transplanted born and bred Wisconsinite, I have learned the tricks of making cheese curds and this recipe is missing the most important step...you have to FREEZE the cheese curds after you coat them for AT LEAST an hour before you fry them!

Country House Fudge

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2006
For all those who think part of the recipe is missing, its not. You add the milk and sugar mixture to the chocolate in the bowl and beat it. Its just like every other fudge recipe. I like the different types of chocolate in this recipe. Be sure to use the highest quality chocolate you can afford.

Affy Tapple Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2005
This was ok. I had a salad similar to this a long time ago and have been trying to find one as good as the original. This was not it. All it seemed to be was apple. My husband ate quite a bit of it, but I think I will try a few more recipes that are similar but with different variations until I find one I REALLY like.

Ham and Bean Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2003
Very good. I made this to use up some leftover ham from Christmas dinner. Everyone loved it. We left out the potatoes and added only one can of beans. Very thick, meaty and flavorful. Will definately make it again.

Pumpkin Bars III

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2003
As a low-carb dieter, I am always looking for recipes I can adapt to suit my diet, and this one worked perfectly! The relatively small amounts of flour and sugar were easily adaptable and these still came out moist and flavorful. I reduced the raisins and added chopped pecans to mine. These would be great either frosted or just dusted with powdered sugar. I will definately make them again.

Peanut Butter Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
YUM! This is wonderful, simply because it IS, but also because it can be made really healthily. I use natural PB, Dannon Light N Fit (sugar free) vanilla yogurt, and Sugar Free Cool Whip. I keep a container in my fridge to have it on hand for a yummy snack and I think it taste even better if it's been in the fridge overnight!

BB's Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
I had some leftover Swiss cheese and wanted to use it up, so I was looking for recipes and am sure glad I found this one! This dish has wonderful flavor and is SO easy to make! It really does taste like you spent hours. The only changes I made was I shredded the Swiss instead of slicing it, and I didn't have sherry, so I used milk. I will be making this again!

Cranberry Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
These were ok. I was expecting something more buttery, crisp and shortbread-like, but the crumb mixture on this was very soft and quick bread textured, I think because of the egg. I won't be making these again.

Poppy Seed Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2005
This is my husbands FAVORITE dish, although I make a few changes to it. I like it because it is so versitile and goof-proof! I usually poach the chicken with some onion, celery and carrots for flavor, and use Wheatsworth crackers in the topping, processing them in a food processor with the butter and poppyseeds to make a sand-like topping that bakes together nicely. I also mix the sauce with the chicken rather than spreading it on top of the chicken to keep the chicken nice and moist. I also add leftover veggies (ie: peas, broccoli, carrots, etc) to the chicken mixture more often than not. Its a good way to sneak in veggies since my hubby doesn't like to eat them plain!

Toasted Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2005
I have actually never made this exact recipe, but I use it as a base to make sugar-free banana cream pies for my dad. It works WONDERFULLY. I simply replace the sugar with Splenda and the vanilla with banana extract,a drop or two of yellow food coloring, then pour the filling over sliced bananas in a sugar-free cookie crumb crust. Chill it and top it with sweetened whipped cream. My dad LOVES it and after tasting it, my aunt asked for the recipe so she can make it for my uncle, who is diabetic. If you know how to make a custard, this recipe is practically fool-proof and HIGHLY adaptable. 5 stars!!

Buster Bar Ice Cream Dessert

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2008
Colossal success! I served this at a dinner party and everyone raved about it. One of my guests ended up having 4 pieces before the night was over! I don't normally like ice cream desserts, but the combination of flavors in this is just too good. Just as everyone has said, it really does taste just like a Buster Bar! The only thing I did differently was add an 8 oz. container of Cool Whip on top. I will definitely be making this again...it's a keeper!

Fluffy Lime Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2007
I didn't care for this salad. I have had variations on the same theme which I have enjoyed much more. After it sat in the fridge for awhile, the cream cheese went from creamy and fluffy, to heavy and just kindof old, and the texture was not fresh. That's the only way I can describe it. And the lime flavor from the jell-o was too artificial tasting for me to really enjoy it. It didn't taste like real lime, it tasted like artificial flavoring. I won't be making this again.

Summer Sub Sandwich

Fast, easy, tasty and perfect for summer when I don't want to turn on the oven! We served it with chips, fruit and veggies.

Cucumber, Tomato, and Red Onion Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
I suppose it was ok, if all you want is some cut up cucumbers, tomatoes with some lime juice on your plate. I ended up adding mayo, lemon pepper an parmesan cheese to it to make it more like an actual salad, rathan than just a pile of cut up veggies. I would give it more stars with my additions, but as the recipe is written, only 2 stars. Its really not much of a recipe.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
Delicious! And not only that, but it is SO easy, as well. I took previous reviewers advice and baked the squash for about an hour beforehand. I also only used one 8 oz. package of cream cheese and it was plenty. I also salted it to taste, which ended up being about 1/2 - 1 teaspoon. I was surprised salt isn't in the original recipe, as it truly enhances the flavor. I will most definitely be making this again and again. And again!

Frosted Fruit Gelatin

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2007
This is a lovely dish, full of fresh fruit, but the topping is what earns it the 5 stars! I have used it on a variety of flavors and combinations of fruited jello and they disappear every time! The only difference in how I make this dish is that I use both sugar free jello, and I use Splenda in the topping instead of sugar.

Autumn Apple Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2011
Delicious! I love gelatin salads with a lot of different flavors and textures, and this fits the bill perfectly! Love the crunchy apples, celery and nuts, as well as the creaminess of the gelatin. Yummy!

Homemade Chicken Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
I use this simple recipe as the replacement in any recipe that calls for "cream of" canned soup as a "gravy." (I do NOT use it IN recipes as a replacement...it is not the right consistency for that. I use it just in the recipes that call for thinned soup as a gravy or sauce to an already cooked dish). It is easy and quick to prepare, light, and a wonderful alternative to the processed condensed soups.

Cauliflower Shrimp Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2007
This was ok. It was edible, but for me, it wasn't a GREAT recipe. It wasn't bland, like some have said, it just didn't do it for me, flavor-wise. I probably won't make this again.
