Pizza Pinwheels

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2002
I made a few additions to this recipe and it was fantastic! I diced up pepperoni in some, and added crumbled, cooked sausage to others. After adding cheese and filling, i seaseoned with italian seasoning and grated romano cheese. I rolled and added more grated cheese to the outside along with garlic and herb seasoning. I refrigerated overnight, cut and baked the next day. Served with homemade marinara...realy impressive!

Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2003
I whipped together two eggs, added about a 1/3 cup seaoned breadcrumbs to the egg mixture, and then poured it atop the pasta. Then i added the cheeses (variety) to 1 can of evaporated milk that i let simmer. Add seasonings to the cheese mixture and when bubbly pour over pasta. To make it a complete meal, i steamed some broccoli florets, carrots, and cauliflower and added it to the pasta before pouring the cheese mixture in. Sprinkle the top with some more breadcrumbs and bake. It was DELISH!

Aunt Mary's Eggplant Balls

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2003
Thank you, Aunt Mary! These were ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! i didn't even have the time to refrigerate them at all, but agree that it would only make for an improvement if i had. i peeled the skin off, because of preference, and mashed them after steaming (you need to stir them every few minutes) and only baked them for twenty minutes because i finshed cooking them in my pot of sauce. My husband and his male friends (sorry to be stereotypical) preferred them to my meatballs! I can't wait to make them into a veggie burger, too!! This recipe will live on in my family.

Bruschetta II

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2003
This was relatively easy to make (and quick cleanup- just my processor)and was a hit at a dinner party. I was a little unsure of how they would be recieved because it did not look like traditional bruschetta, but they are SO much tastier and there were no leftovers. I added some diced mozzarella to the tomato mixture for that complimentary taste. I will definately make these again...One problem though- the recipe made way too much pesto, and i did not even use the requested amount of almonds. Thanks for the recipe, Maryanne.

Cheesy Vegetable Chowder

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2002
My husband and I loved this soup. I made a few tasty additions in vegetable preference, including chunks of zucchini, green onions, and lima beans. I also added an 8 oz can of tomato sauce and some basil,oregano,and parsley. I used more water than suggested and slightly less flour. Precooked orzo pasta mixed in gave it more substance. We will def. make this again! :)

Jo's Manicotti

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2002
The only addition to the filling that i made was to add some shredded mozarella to it. I used it inside eggplant rolatini, which i wrapped inside a lasagna noodle and covered with marinara and mozzarella. Fantastic!

Potatoes Au Gratin with Fennel and Bacon

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
DELISH! I used smart balance margarine in lieu of butter, reduced the flour to 4T, used 1 12 oz can f/f evaporated milk and additional 8 oz of 1% milk (6 oz initially and the other 2 as the cheese sauce congealed between layering to thin it out), used 4 oz of velveeta 2%, 9 slices (1/2 package) of low sodium bacon, and added a small onion cut into rings and layered with everything. I was skeptical about the basil, and thought parsley would work better, but tried it and it worked! thanks for this recipe.

Cheesy Sausage Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2003
This was a wonderful recipe, and it is so easy to experiment with. The only adjustments i made was adding a chopped italian frying pepper to the onion/sausage/zucchini/tomato combo, and some italian seasoning and parsley. I also diced up the sauasge before putting it in the oven. We will definately make this again! i think i might stuff this mixture inside an eggplant! Yummmy!

Fruit Dip I

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
to make ur own fluff: 1 (6- or 7-ounce) jar Marshmallow Creme or Fluff = Gently heat 1 (16-ounce) package marshmallows plus 3 1/2 tablespoons light corn syrup. Gently melt in a double boiler, stirring constantly. Great if you don't refrigerate - turns gelatinous

Pasta Primavera Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
I used all ingredients listed except tom paste, instead I used tomato sauce and I took another's advice and used broth instead of water. The only modification I made was to saute all the veggies in the olive oil and garlic for about 10 min (gradually- as I chopped each veggie, I added it to the pan) before adding the diced tomatoes and sauce. I tossed this with a corkscrew pasta, added a little grated cheese and YUM. Even my 4 and 2 y/o ate it up!

Raspberry Fudge Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
To start, it went against my gut to line the pan with aluminum foil. When these were done, I did not know if they were to cool on wire rack directly or in pan...thinking they would cool to the foil, I flipped it onto a wire rack - very carefully, I might add b/c it was cracking and was only about 1/4 inch deep (?) and it still was hard to remove the foi and some adhered... The bakers chocolate either needs to be cut into small pieces before pouring the milk/yolk mixture or to be directly added to the milk yolk mixture while in the pot over low heat b/c it did not fully melt. Third, the topping was impossible to get smooth like some pictures show. This definitely was not presentable like I'd hoped. I topped with chocolate chips scattered to hide the imperfection of the frosting. I did give 4 stars though because the taste was still quite yummy - although none of my guests made any comments either way...

I followed this recipe exaclty, only omitting the corn and adding shredded cheddar to the top before baking. It was delicious! My 15 month old devoured it! This goes great with a salad with catalina dressing!

Healing Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2012
Only thing I did different was added one packet Beefy onion soup mix bc I had no onion. perhaps that was the reason for the taste, but still could not see this improving THAT much with just an onion added. (and i added celery, shredded carrots, basil, and oregano as others suggested)

Slow Cooker Creamy Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
We wanted to prep the night before, so to the crock pot bowl, we added diced russet potatoes, a sliced bunch of leeks, and broth to cover completely (along with the evaporated milk that was mistakelny added). Refrigerated it covered overnight (read that this was ok to do) and next morning set it in the base and cooked it for 9 hours on low (added 1 hour to compensate for the refrigeration) We came home from work and it was inedible. The potatoes were firm and did not soften even after simmering on the stovetop for quite some time?! wierd!! I'm giving it afour so as to not taint its results bc i am sure it was something that i did since others did not have this problem.

Beef Stroganoff with Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2003
This was the first time i ever even ate stroganoff, and I liked it, as well as my hubby and his friends. However, it could have definatly used some carrots, green beans, even potatoes...mmmmm! I followed the recipe exactly, omitting the salt, and found that the bacon took a long time to cook. After simmering for the 1 1/2 hrs, i removed the floating bacon pieces and discarded them...they didn't look to appetizing! But thanks for the recipe we willl use it again!

S.O.P.P.

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2003
i took the advise of other reviewers and cooked the sausage seperately ( i broiled it, after having marinaded it and the onions in some teriyaki sauce) and added other spices to the potatoes as they were cooking. They took 20 min to soften and even then they weren't as soft as i'd like them.
