Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2014
Took this to a farewell for a friend who was moving. It was a great success and one friend even said it was the best punch she ever had! This is a keeper.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
This is great! I had never made potato soup before and this was very satisfying and didn't take very long to make. Tastes even better the next day. I used my hand blender to crush the potatoes somewhat. Great comfort food.

Oatmeal Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
Excellent recipe. This dish fits into our eating plan with the oats as a coating for the chicken. Very nicely spiced. I only have whole rolled oats so I put them through the food processor to chop them up a little. I also used skinless, boneless chicken breast halves. Then, instead of drizzling butter, I sprayed "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" butter flavor spray on it. I'm sure real butter would have been better, but we can't eat that, and the butter spray worked just fine. My husband is leery of trying new recipes but he went back for seconds, and ate the leftover piece heated and put on a salad for lunch the next day!

Buster Bar Ice Cream Dessert

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2010
I served this to company and it was a hit! I added a caramel topping layer in the middle of the ice cream and it was good but not necessary. There was only a little left and my husband gobbled it up after. I did have trouble cutting through the cookie crust so perhaps I pressed it in to hard because frozen it was difficult to cut through when frozen. It was also very easy to make!

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
I made these cookies exactly as written, and after putting 12 on the baking sheet decided to add some chopped pecans. After putting 12 of those on the sheet, I decided to throw in some sesame seeds to make the last 12. They were all delicious, but I think the original recipe ones were the best! I shared half of them with a friend or I would have eaten them all! This is a great recipe. Crunchy outside, chewy inside, great flavor.

The Best Meatloaf I've Ever Made

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
I made a half a recipe of this to try it and now I wish I had made a whole recipe it was so good! It tasted even better for lunch the next day. I didn't need the milk as I do not live in a high altitude area. I felt the amount of pepper was too much, so I added one third less and still felt it was too much pepper but still it was very delicious. This will be my meatloaf recipe from now on, and I have copied it out to give to my friend tomorrow!

Cuban Picadillo

Reviewed: May 24, 2010
What a delightful dish! Ok, I did make some changes after reading the reviews. I made half a recipe. I sauted the onions and garlic, then made the sofrito by adding to pot 16 oz. of tomato sauce, an equal amount of water, the chopped sweet red pepper, 1 tsp. oregano, 1 tsp. cumin, 1 tsp. coriander, 3/4 cup raisins, 1-5oz. jar of green olives sliced in half, a half jar of the olive brine, 1/8 tsp. hot pepper sauce, 1/8 tsp. red pepper flakes. I brought this to a boil, added the uncooked ground beef and let it all cook down. It tastes fantastic! The hot sauce and red pepper flakes did not make it hot, just mellow. I am serving it over brown rice. I was going to make coconut rice as another reviewer did, but decided the raisins made it sweet enough. I have not had much Cuban food in my lifetime and this is a real treat! Thanks to the other reviewers for their good comments, and thanks for the recipe!

Coconut Tilapia with Apricot Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
This is great! It is important not to let the coconut coating cook too long. A few of mine did and got slightly burnt but even so, they tasted good. The non-burnt ones were fabulous. A real treat, and a great way to eat more fish.

Creamy Coconut Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
This is a delicious cake, but I don't think it was as fantastic as other reviewers found it. Cool, moist and flavorful. We enjoyed it, and I will make it again but there are other cake recipes I like better.

Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
This is a great recipe! I have sent it to my family and friends. I mix it in a cruet with red wine vinegar and olive oil. I didn't have celery salt so I used celery seed, and I used half garlic powder and half garlic salt. I have used it mixed this way on salads, and as a marinade for meat and grilled vegetables. Its great for all these things.

Romaine Rice Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
This is a great recipe! I used 2 cans of tuna and a small can of black olive slices in addition to the rest of the ingredients. It has a great flavor. My husband and I enjoyed it very much. It is a simple and quick meal.

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2012
This is sensational! It tastes wonderful and looks great on the plate. It wasn't hard to make at all. I made half the recipe as it was just the 2 of us. I didn't have dried onion flakes so I used one-half teaspoon of onion powder. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. Hubby loved it and so did I. It would be great as a meal for company.

Old Settlers' Baked Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
These beans are wonderful. They were a little too sweet, so reducing the sugar is possible without compromising taste. I didn't have bacon so I reluctantly used a handful of imitation bacon bits, and it came out very good. I think using real bacon would have been much better, and will do so next time. I used them as a side dish, but I think in a pinch it could serve as a main course.

Sweet and Spicy Stir Fry with Chicken and Broccoli

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
I took a few hints from reviewers and doubled the amount of sauce ingredients, plus I added about 1 tablespoon of brown sugar to balance out the heat. Instead of broccoli, I used snow peas which added another level of sweetness to the sweet/heat balance. I also added sliced scallions, fresh mushrooms, red bell pepper, and a rib of sliced fresh celery. Served it over brown rice. Hubby went back for seconds. This is a keeper. It is delicious.

Aunt Rita's Italian Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
This is a very delicious dish. I used sweet Italian poultry sausage and did include the carrots and mushrooms. I also added some salt and pepper. It is different enough from my other Italian dishes to be a nice change. Hubby and I really enjoyed it! It is very healthy and a good way to get in the veggies!

Coconut Cream Dessert

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2011
This is great! Made it for company and it did not disappoint. The super market didn't have instant pudding so I made cooked: 3 pkgs. with the 4 cups of milk. It did not get as firm as instant, but it tasted wonderful and I was able to cut and serve it.

Herb Vegetable Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
When making this salad, I forgot to add the corn. I prepared the rest as directed. This salad is fabulous! I couldn't keep out of it while preparing the rest of the meal! Then I remembered the corn and stirred it in. With the corn it was good, but without it was much better! So from now on I think I'll leave out the corn.

Chicken Pot Pie II

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
Instead of pie crust I topped this recipe with Fluffy Biscuits by Nancy Horsburg from this site. It was incredible! It is my favorite chicken pot pie recipe. I even took it to my friend recuperating from surgery. I made everything as directed except the pie crust.
