Curried Couscous Salad with Bacon

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2014
this was very good and simple to make. I used some fresh asparagus instead of the cucumber, because that is what I had in the frig. It was good at room temp. and would be good chilled. Very colorful! A little bacon adds a whole lot of flavor, so please don't omit the bacon.

Butterscotch Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2014
This was very good. I read several reviews before making this. I cut the brown sugar in half and even though I enjoy sweet desserts I found that to be plenty. Because several people mentioned that this seemed "wet", I only used 3 cups of milk. I cooked this on high for 3 hours in my crock pot. Maybe because the crock pot uses a lid, the pudding turned out really moist and tasty with only 3 cups of milk. My bread was very dry before assembling this so I don't think I would ever need more milk. Because of changing the amounts of sugar and milk, I rate this a 4. Will definitely make this again. My bread was multigrain/wheat and we still enjoyed this.

Orange Carrot Cookies

Reviewed: May 26, 2014
I steamed my carrots in the microwave and then pureed them in the food processor. As was suggested by others, I added 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, and 1/2 tsp. ginger to the cookie dough. They are a moist and tasty cookie. i did not have time to zest my orange so my glaze was not very "orangey". May use orange juice concentrate next time. Everyone at work liked these cookies.I thought they were very quick to mix up and bake. Will definitely make these again.

Slow Cooker Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 4, 2014
This was very quick to put together and had very good flavor. I added 1/2 medium onion and sauteed with my ground beef. Then I added a can of black beans to my beef mixture as some suggested. I did not use the water because my taco spices are a homemade blend and do not have corn starch to thicken when adding water. I then covered my 11X13 casserole dish with plastic wrap and foil and cooked in the oven @ 350 for 45 minutes.

Reuben Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2014
I did not have the rye read for this so I omitted this. I used rotini and smoked sausage because that is what I had. Mixed everything together, did not layer and put it in the oven. We all enjoyed this. Will make this in the future. Very easy for potluck/ carry-ins.

Impossible Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2013
This turned out great. Since I had fresh pumpkin which has more water in it than the canned, I used only half a can of milk. I did sub brown sugar for the white, but otherwise followed the recipe. I used this recipe because I wanted to make an impossible pie without using Bisquik. We like impossible pies because you get all the good filling without the extra calories from the crust. The pumpkin may not be quite as custardy, but I don't think it was "Cakey" as some have said.

Bacon Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
These are one of the first to disappear when I make them for church. If you think they are bland, you can intensify the flavor by using a SHARP cheddar ( Swiss is good also) and using some of your bacon drippings for the oil.

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2013
Very good recipe. I always read both positive and negative reviews before making a new recipe. I see that there are people who say they found this "bland" and then I see people who find this "too spicy". The way you clean your jalapeños would make the difference. The more seeds you remove and discard, the milder the flavor. I really liked the flavor of this soup and will make it again. My only confusion was that the recipe said 3 cups of chicken and 3 cans of white beans yielded FOUR servings. I used 1can of white beans and 1 1/4# of ground chicken. I added a can of retried beans to make a thicker soup.

Pork Marsala

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2013
I like chicken Marsala so I knew I would like this. I cut the pork into bite sized pieces after it was cooked and stirred cooked rice into the pork and sauce so that it would serve easier at a pot luck dinner. This was tasty and easy to make. I will use this recipe again.

Peach Cobbler II

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2013
Just had this for dinner. Followed the recipe, except I added the 1/3 C. Flour to the fresh peaches as was suggested by others. It is 85 degrees outside and we are using the air conditioner inside so I cooked the peaches on top of the stove in a saucepan before putting the peaches in a large baking bowl and adding the "biscuit" topping. This way the oven was only on for about 25 minutes. The recipe makes 8+ servings so we will be enjoying this tomorrow.

Roasted Potato Salad with Balsamic Dressing

Reviewed: May 22, 2013
I made this recipe for a small wedding reception. I agree with a couple of the reviewers that the color is not similar to what you are used to from the deli counter. I lightened the color of the dressing by adding 2T. Sour cream and 2 T. Mayo to the dressing. This was done to make the color of the salad more familiar to the wedding guests. The salad as is does have wonderful flavor. Foodies and adventuresome types loved this. I have had several requests for my recipe. I diced my potatoes into 1/2-3/4" cubes, coated them with the oil,and put them into a cold oven, turned the oven on and 25 minutes later the potatoes were done. I do think the salad tastes better at room temp. so take it out of the frig 20-30 minutes before serving.

Easy Cream Cheese Danish

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
I prefer to "bake from scratch", but these were so fast, easy, and GOOD that I will make them often. I had tube crescent rolls that had gotten lost in my frig (they were past the expiration date) and I wanted to use them without worrying whether they would rise well. Even though the dough was expired, my cheese Danish tasted great. I chose to cut the rolled up dough into 10 portions as suggested by others. I made half the recipe of cream cheese, knowing that if I ran short I could make more. Each of my mini Danishes had a liberal tablespoon of cheese topping. Don't know how I would have been able to put more cheese on them. Haven't had time to quality check a "cold" one, but the ones out of the oven are tasty.

Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
I made these because they sounded easy and flavorful, not because I was looking for something low cal. The filling was very easy to put together and we all thoroughly enjoyed them. I used all the stems and 6 TBL. of shredded Parmesan for the cheese. My bread crumbs were unseasoned so I added some garlic powder. The balsamic vinegar was quite noticeable, but nobody complained. Next time I might try white wine instead of balsamic vinegar for the liquid. Will definitely make these again!

Winter Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
I made this recipe for 2 adults who like chicken, sweet potatoes and cranberries. I really liked the whole dish, the other person did not appreciate the cranberries with her vegetables. I used a lg. sweet potato that I peeled, but did not precook and my chicken breasts were added right from the freezer to the recipe. I put the chicken on top of all the vegetables. and covered the casserole dish. Everything was ready in 60-75 minutes and the chicken was not dry because it was cooked covered. I will certainly make this again. Because my sweet potato was quite large and both carrots and sweet potatoes are orange starches, the carrots were omitted this time.

Bob's Habanero Hot Sauce - Liquid Fire

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
I made a triple batch of this (36) peppers. I cooked everything together then put the hot cooked sauce into hot sterile pint and half pint jars to can. After the lids were screwed onto the jars they were put onto a rack in a dutch oven type pan with hot water already simmering. They were then processed for 20 minutes. This makes a great gift for the hot sauce lovers in your family.

Old-Fashioned Italian Zucchini Fritters

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
So good! I cut this down for a small family. I grated 1-1# zucchini and salted it and drained before proceeding with all the cheese and 1/3 of the rest of the ingredients. Never have too much cheese. The mixture was thick (like muffin batter?) and I used 1 large TBL. per fritter in just a little oil in a hot skillet. It made about 12 21/2" round fritters. Very tasty. Will be making these often. UPDATE: I took these to my county fair as a vegetarian appetizer. The recipe was given first place in it's category.

Zucchini and Eggs

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
I had never considered combining these ingredients. After reading a few of the reviews I decided to cook diced onion, minced garlic and shredded zucchini in a skillet. When my vegetables were slightly brown I stirred some salt, pepper, and soy sauce into my eggs. This then was poured over top of the vegetables. Viola! Zucchini foo yung. An excellent low fat, low carb luncheon. I ate mine as reported, but you could make a sauce to pour over the eggs. Very quick and easy. I will make this with my abundance of zucchini. Thanks for the great idea.

Company Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2011
I used the idea of equal parts cheese/sour cream to make the sauce for fresh steamed caulifower. After reading other reviews, I subbed ranch dip for the sour cream. My grandson who is 3 and I both enjoyed this. I did not think it needed any other spices. This will be a recipe I will use again.
