Deep Dish Layered Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2011
Took this to a potluck and got rave reviews. I am addicted to the dressing in this recipe! Doubled the dressing so I could have leftovers for myself, but used greek yogurt and sour cream to cut the mayo taste, then added fresh lemon juice. I mixed the dressing up a day before serving so the flavors could blend, then poured on top of the salad right before serving (did it separately for easy transport). Such a versatile salad recipe - I used what I had on hand (iceberg, red cabbage, shredded carrot, cucumber, Vidalia onions, green peas, egg, and cheddar cheese). Didn't even miss the bacon, but might try it next time. This will be my go to potluck recipe from now on. The extra dressing was yummy on a toss salad with grilled chicken, craisins, and almonds.

Easy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2010
I love this recipe for its simplicity and adaptability - and of course, great taste! I change it up depending on what I have in the pantry - almonds, walnuts, sunflower kernels, pumpkin seeds, rice kripsies, etc. I've been making these granola bars for almost 2 years and constantly get requests for more. I made these for a bake sale last year - they were so popular that I had to make them again this year.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2010
Yummmmy! I made these for a bake sale and had a hard time eating only one during my taste test. Like a few others, I used canola oil instead of olive oil (the muffins were moist and tender). I also added nutmeg and ground ginger (1/4 tsp each) to the batter, and a pinch of each to the cream cheese mixture. Some mentioned having problems with the cream cheese mixture...I used a small spatula to push some batter up against the sides to create a well, then topped with about a tbsp of cream cheese mixture. I had enough batter and filling to make 24 muffins. I'm usually not a big fan of streusel toppings, but oh my - it really pulled everything together. Thanks for a great recipe, Barb!

Chicken Soup III

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
Yummm!! This is my go to chicken soup recipe from now on...excellent flavor!! Made this last night for my boyfriend who is sick, he raved and raved over this soup (thank you Robbie!!). I kinda ate two bowls ("taste testing") before he could get home. I kicked it up a bit with some jalapenos, Adobo seasoning, fresh cilantro, garlic cloves, and chipotle chili powder in the first step (omitted the buillon). In the second step, I left the diced chicken out and added it back to the soup after the rice and veggies had cooked. I did have to add some additional stock at the end to thin it out. I just went to my freezer and thawed out some corn stock for a little more depth. Oh, I used thighs since that was all I had on hand. I plan to make big batches of this to freeze when I catch chicken on sale.

Gourmet Pretzel Rods

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2008
Yummy! Made these the other night for our departmental bake sale...they almost didn't make it to work. I found that the caramel did a little better when it hardened up just a little - after melting, I set it off the heat for a few minutes, then used the back of a spoon to smear on the pretzel rods. I didn't have any trouble with the caramel running all over the place once I put them on parchment paper to 'set' before covering with chocolate. I changed up the toppings a little - used chopped roasted peanuts (used my mini food chopper to chop 'em up fine), shredded coconut, chopped white chocolate, and multi-colored sprinkles. I didn't put all the toppings on one rod - I made a variety. The only thing I didn't like about this recipe is the use of pre-packaged caramels - it took a while to unwrap all those little buggers. However, I used what I had left over in my baking stash - next time I think I'll try making caramel from scratch. I had some caramel, chocolate, and toppings leftover, so I threw all the toppings together in with the caramel, stirred it up a little, rolled into small balls, then dropped them in the chocolate. A nice little surprise. Thanks for a great recipe!

Joy's Prizewinning Trifle

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
My mom gave me a store bought lemon pound cake to take to a family reunion, and I wasn't sure how it would taste alone, so I sliced it up and served it alongside the pudding/whip cream/sour cream mixture and a big bowl of cut up strawberries and peaches. I suggest using a big package of instant vanilla pudding and 8 oz. of Cool Whip. I made the cream topping as directed, but it tasted too Cool Whip-py to me, so I dumped the rest of the big package of the pudding over into the bowl. Very yummy! Will definitely make again.

Tuna Salad With Fresh Dill

Reviewed: May 24, 2007
Excellent!! I'm giving it four stars only because it was very runny when I finished - almost like soup - a really good soup. I even added three chopped hard-boiled eggs, and it was still runny. I will drain or at least save the juice to add once the other ingredients are mixed together. One good thing about being runny was not having to add salad dressing when eaten with salad greens.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2007
Yummy! The only modifications I made were: adding 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats, 1 tbsp. milk, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. This is definately a keeper!

Chicken Tortilla Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2007
I've never been a fan of the tortilla soup that you get in restaurants, but I wanted to try my hand at making it. I am glad that I found this recipe. I took the suggestions of other reviewers and just used homemade chicken stock and threw in chipolte peppers instead of the green chiles. The first night it was ok, but it got sooo much better the longer it has sat. It's delicious when topped with chopped tomato, avocado, shredded cheese and a little sour cream (what wouldn't?).

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2006
I used fresh spinach and fresh mushrooms, and I must have misjudged the amounts. I had more filling than would fit into the pie crust. However, it was so yummy! I think I like it better left over and reheated...the flavors blend better after it sits for a day or two. Thanks for a great recipe!

Lemon Dill Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2006
I thought this was great!! I've been weaning myself off bottled dressings - they taste too artificial to me. This dressing was nice and fresh. I used it on chef salads, side salads, and as a dipping sauce for crab cakes and squash fritters. I will definately make this again.

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2006
This is the easiest and best tasting pasta I have ever made!! I couldn't believe how easy it was to prepare. I didn't have tortellini on hand, so I just used some ziti. I also threw in some fresh mushrooms and cubed chicken breast from a previous meal into the sauce, before adding the cream. Yummy!!

Crispy Orange Beef

Reviewed: May 16, 2006
This was really great and a different recipe. I think I used too much orange concentrate or got too much orange zest in the sauce because it made my lips pucker, but it was still great served over fried rice. I will definately make again.

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
The ingredients sounded so whacky that I had to try it out for our community Christmas party. They were a really big hit and so incredibly easy to make.

Cheesy Chicken Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2004
Too salty using the canned cream of chicken soups. Might try different brand or making my own cream of chicken soup. Otherwise, very tasty--definately a keeper.
