Ham Croquettes

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2014
I also did not include the salt (ham is already very salty and we are watching our sodium intake). I had a leftover ham, so I diced it very small - took a little longer than using packaged ham, but worked just fine. No green onion, so I just left it out. Used a Mexican blend and Italian blend, since that's what I had opened up in the fridge. I think this recipe is forgiving enough that small changes won't hurt it - it is just toooooo yummy!! It smelled so good, I wanted to eat the mixture before I had added the eggs. We don't normally eat fried foods, so this was a little hard on mine and hubbys bellies, I think we may try to bake them next time. Going to follow the directions for breading them and then cook them on parchment paper. I'll try spraying them with a cooking spray to help crisp them up.

Zucchini Jelly

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2014
Wonderful!! EASY!!! People won't believe this is made with Zucchini! You can be creative with this, use different flavors of jello. I've made strawberry (my favorite), peach (not bad) and grape (imho - NASTY!! tastes like the mix for grape koolaid, no water, just the powder. But, I am not a big grape person, so you may like it). I'm not sure what the poster did who said you need to add pectin to this recipe it's plenty thick as is. It is runny when you can it, but after it sits it thickens up nicely. Think about how runny jello is when you first make it. I have noticed when I pull a jar out of my cabinet it is less firm than when I use it after it's been refrigerated. So no, DO NOT ADD PECTIN TO THIS RECIPE!! Otherwise you wont' be able to use it!!

Brie's Very Vanilla Dog Treats

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2014
I modified a bit (no offense to poster, I never follow a recipe down to the T, lol). Had some bananas that were going to go bad soon, so I mashed one of those into the applesauce/egg mixture and added a 1/2 tsp mint extract. Used crunchy PB, cause that's what I had on hand. Instructions very clear, easy to follow - THANK YOU!! Cut mine with a pizza cutter, super quick. I love that these are made with ingredients found in my kitchen and this recipe is forgiving, so you can add items without totally messing up the outcome. IF there are any left at the 2 week mark, I can always throw the leftovers out to the chickens and make a new batch. But my little girl loves them, so I doubt there will be leftovers. Looking forward to trying some of Bries other recipes!!
