Mongolian Strawberry-Orange Juice Smoothie

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2012
This was really good! My daughter wanted to make strawberry smoothies, so we picked this recipe...we weren't disappointed. A couple of adjustments that we made...we froze just over a cup of strawberries (filled up the one cup Pyrex measuring cup), used one cup of orange juice, 10 cubes of ice, 2 tablespoons of sugar and 2 tablespoons of shredded coconut (unsweetened). We blended it all together and presto! It was so good and made enough for 3 servings. Yum!!

Brownies To Die For

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
This recipe is great. Of course, I'm glad that I read the reviews before I made this, so that I knew that it needed to be made in a 9x13 pan. I used 3 eggs and I baked it for approximately 40 minutes and it came out with a nice texture...firm on top and moist and fudgy on the inside. I did not add the chocolate on top because I felt that it would make an already sweet recipe (because of the entire can of coconut pecan frosting that goes into it) too sweet. I'm glad I made that call because the finished product is very sweet. It's good...but sweet. I am going to cut small pieces of this and serve it for our game day party tomorrow. The sour cream helps with the soft but dense texture, and you can definitely taste the coconut pecan frosting in each bite. Next time I will add the cup of pecans into the batter (didn't have any), as I think that will add a nice crunch to it. Overall, I thought it was a good recipe. I was afraid to try after reading many of the reviews but I'm glad I did. Now the true test will be tomorrow...when the guests eat the brownies!

Orange Coconut Crescents

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
I made these rolls for Christmas brunch and the tasted delicious! I made the rolls and glaze as written, but found it made way too much glaze. I felt that a little bit of the glaze went a long way...otherwise it was too rich. One thing I am going to do next time is add sliced almonds to the topping...after I brush the glaze on the rolls, I'll sprinkles some sliced almonds on the top and then some of the reseved coconut mixture. I think that will be a nice addition to this yummy recipe.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
This was really, really good. I made a few changes...I made it in a bundt pan, only used one pack of pudding (butterscotch), and substituted pecans for the walnuts. I also used half cinnamon applesauce for half of the oil, to make it healthier. The texture was perfect and the cake was a total hit! Thanks!

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
This was awesome!! I made it for a baby shower and it was a huge hit!! I followed the recipe exactly as stated, and it was yummy. I filled the punch in 2 gallon-size Ziploc-style bags and put it in the freezer the night before my lunch party. I took it out 2 hourse before the party was to start and it worked out perfectly. One bag plus the soda made exactly the amount of the bowl. I floated orange slices on top. It was so pretty and best of all...delicious!

Garlic Bread Fantastique

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
This turned out delicious! I used minced garlic out of a jar, used margarine instead of butter, added chopped sundried tomatoes to the margarine mixture, omitted the sage, and made half the recipe, which was enough to cover one sliced french baguette. It was a big hit and everyone had seconds and thirds. Thanks for the recipe!!

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
This is fantastic! I made some alterations, as follows: Increased the non-pumpkin batter to 1 1/2 cups, increased the sugar to 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp., increased the vanilla extract to 1 teaspoon, instead of the various spices, I used 1 1/2 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice, as well as 1/2 tsp of additional cinnamon, added 1/2 cup low fat sour cream to the batter to make it creamier, and the biggest change was that I baked it in mini-graham cracker shells, for individual cheesecakes, for approximately 20 minutes. They came out looking great!!! I am going to serve them with a dollop of whipped topping, with a little sprinkle of cinnamon, and then some caramel sauce swirled on top. I can't wait for my party tomorrow!!

French Toast I

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
This was delicious! I used banana nut bread and followed other reviewers suggestion of covering it for a few minutes on low-medium heat to cook it through. Then before I took it off of the griddle, I cut the bread slice into two triangles and slightly grilled the cut side of the triangle. I made this for a surprise breakfast for my husband's birthday and he absolutely love it, as did my daughter. Thanks!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2006
I've never made cornbread from scratch and this is good. As a reviewer had suggested, I baked them in muffin top pans and now have little cornbread saucers. I also decreased the sugar to 1/2 cup and baked them for approximately 13 minutes. They tasted very good, but were a little dry. So, I will definitely use this recipe again, but will bake them for slightly less time. Thanks!

Cheese Cake Cups

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2006
Ohhhhhhh...yummy, yummy, yummy! These are really good. As some reviewers suggested, I made the following changes...I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese, added 1 cup of non-fat sour cream, and added an additional 1/4 cup sugar. With these changes, the recipe made 23 cupcakes. They came out so creamy and yummy! I'm not sure what the other reviewers meant about the texture of the Nilla wafers...they seem to form a great crust and I didn't do anything to them. Since they sink when cooling, they've left a perfect crater for me to put in cherry pie filling. I can't wait to serve these at my party in a couple of days.

Chili Rellenos Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2006
This is excellent! I used the following suggestions from other readers: used an 8x8 pan, 3 eggs instead of 2, enchilada sauce instead of plain tomato sauce, added some black olives and jalapenos on top, used only 8 ounces lower fat mexican cheese instead of 16 ounces, and broiled the cheese on top. My husband and I both loved it and we'll definitely be making this again! We served it with spanish rice, salad, tortilla chips and salsa.

Zesty Taco Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2006
Not nearly as good as I expected. The crushed chips on top just separated from the rest of the dish after I baked it and just made a hard layer on top that was not good. The rest of the dish was just okay. I will continue looking for a better recipe.

Baby Shower Raspberry Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2006
This was delicious! I made it for a baby shower and the pastel pink color was perfect. I used strawberry extract since I didn't have any raspberry. I will be making this again.

Tofu Parmigiana

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2006
This is a really delicious dish. Instead of dipping the tofu in water, I dipped it in a beaten egg and dipped it in the breadcrumb mixture and then I fried it in a shallow skillet with a bit of olive oil. After frying, I laid the tofu pieces in a 9x13 pan, and then topped with spaggetti sauce and shredded cheese and then baked in the oven. It was delicious.

Sweet Potato Casserole I

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2006
This is a yummy, yummy dish. I made this three times over this last holiday season. Since I only had the 29 ounce cans, I used 2 of those cans and multiplied the recipe by 1.5, and baked it in a 9x13 casserole dish. It came out perfect! I had to bake it for more than 35 minutes...more like 45-50 minutes. Yummy! I'll be making this for every holiday. Added 12/22/06: I also made it this year and it's just as yummy! This time I baked the same 1.5 times the recipe and split into two 2-quart trays, and baked it for about 45 minutes. It was yummy and made it easy to bake one recipe for two potlucks.

Great Pumpkin Dessert

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2006
Wow! This is delicious! As other reviewers suggested, I used 1 cup of melted butter instead of the 3/4 cup and added 1 teaspoon cinnamon. I think that this really made a difference in the yumminess of the dessert. I also had to bake it for approximately 1 hour 15 minutes, which is a little longer than the recipe calls for. I made it for my Mom's birthday and served it with a big dollop of whipped topping. Make this...you won't regret it!

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
Delicious! Since fresh asparagus is expensive right now, I used canned asparagus. While it's not as good as fresh, it's still delicious. Just made it for a Christmas potluck, and will definitely make it again!

Mexican Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2005
This is a good recipe, but we felt that it needed a little more flavor. We added some sour cream to make it creamy, added some roasted cumin, used rotini pasta, a red pepper instead of a green pepper, and added some jalapeno. After all of these additions, the pasta was really good.

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2005
This recipe is delicious! The best hummus I have ever tried. I served it for a lunch party for my inlaws and everyone loved it! I prepared it exactly as is, and served it with flat bread cut into triangles and warmed up in the toaster oven. I highly recommend this recipe!!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2005
Since we're vegetarian, we used the Morningstar crumbles (1 package). It turned out fantastic! At first try, we thought that it was a little too sweet...the ketchup overpowered the taste. So, we added a teaspoon more mustard and 1/4 teaspoon chili powder. That did the trick. We enjoyed it on hamburger buns, with a slice of cheese and potato chips on the side. A quick and easy dinner! Thanks!
