Tropical Salad with Pineapple Vinaigrette

Reviewed: May 8, 2002
Once again my hubby is not one for fruit in his greens but he had to admit that this salad is superior. A perfect combination of flavors with salad ingredients and dressing.

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2002
This is a wonderful alternative to our standard "buttered noodles" accompaniment to meals. The biggest kid in our family (my husband) absolutely loved it!

Thirty Day Friendship Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2005
I have searched through countless Friendship Cake recipes to find this one. I received starter for this from a friend 10 years ago and I remember this being the moistest, most delicious cake that I had ever had. I was worried that it would actually taste like the holiday fruitcakes that I really don't like but instead I felt like I was in Hawaii enjoying a tropical delight. Thanks for posting this. The coconutwas a key ingredient that is not included in many recipes. I had to make the starter first this time so now it's off to Mom's group with the final product. They've been waiting 8 weeks for this ... I hope they like it as much as I do!

Curried Chicken Tea Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
I made this for a light lunch I hosted today. I added a bit more curry powder and skipped the cranberries and pecans. Instead of regular Mayo, I used Kraft light made with olive oil and squeezed a fresh lime for the lime juice. This salad was served along with a cracker and cheese plate. It made a lovely light lunch and is now awaiting the return of the children from school. I made it in the past with dried cranberries and chopped walnuts. In all this is a very versatile and tasty chicken salad. Thanks for posting! I will definitely use it again!

Whole Wheat, Oatmeal, and Banana Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
Wonderful! The kids loved them... especially with their requested chocolate chips. What I liked was that I didn't feel so bad adding the choc chips because of the healthy recipe. I didn't have whole wheat flour so I ground extra oats and increased the white flour (50/50) to make up for the 1 c. of whole wheat flour. Thanks for posting! I'm adding this to my permanent file.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
I tried this because I wanted a recipe that used lots of banana. This is our new favorite! I used the Splenda Brown Sugar blend and it turned out fine. The kids have requested this over and over. Thanks for a keeper!

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
This barely made it through the weekend. It was wonderful! I did make the following changes: 1. I ran out of sugar so used: 3/4 c. granulated sugar + 1 1/4 c. Splenda 2. For the Sour Cream: 6 oz. Plain Greek Yogurt + 2 oz. light sour cream 3. I used UNSALTED butter The only difference is that the cake could have handled an extra 10 minutes in the oven, but it was wonderful anyway! Thanks for sharing!

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
Thanks a Million for posting! Son's birthday order was chocolate cake with chocolate icing. This put the cake over the top and gave me more than enough for a 3-layer round cake with frosting in between each layer. I will definitely keep this recipe in my box for future use.

Bacon and Tomato Cups

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
These got rave reviews at the Preview at the book fair this morning! I'm passing the link to the recipe along to the teachers! Thanks for a savory, yummy "muffin" alternative! I did make a few changes. I'm a fan of cheddar paired with bacon. I doubled the recipe and used half swiss and half cheddar. I did not use the onion but sprinkled garlic powder on top of each cup (sparingly) before baking. I will definitely make these again (especially since I still have filling leftover and an extra can of biscuits).

Non-Alcoholic Margarita Punch

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
Oh my! I found this VERY tart but the kids absolutely loved it! Since sour is in, it is a total hit. I've promised to put it on the kids' "we're having a party" menu for all time.
