Tofu Sandwich Spread

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2013
Well, to be honest, I have never tried tofu before and quite frankly, the thought of it used to induce nausea.However, that being said, I was given 3 packs of extra firm tofu(we are poor and I guess it was cheaper for that person than buying meat, but beggars cant be choosers)so I had no choice but to figure out how to fix this stuff and feed my kids and actually make it taste edible.I found this recipe and tried it out.IM SURPRISED, it was actually good.I forgot however, to use the soy sauce until the end so when I did finally add it I didn't even measure it since half was already gone.If I had to guess, I'd say I used less than a TB but as stated most the tofu was gone already.I found the spread to be crumbly, I guess is the word, but I had extra firm and it wasn't that bad, it was not soggy at all anyway.I also had no celery so I added a little celery seed, and some dill weed too, and I did put in a dash of cayenne pepper to give it more kick but not too much my kids don't like spicy.I also added sunflower seeds for a crunch.I was going to add finely diced bell pepper but I was out of that too(again any food is a blessing).I didn't add onion either.I did freeze my tofu first though and allowed it to thaw and etc...made the difference I believe. We ate this rolled up in tortillas since we had no bread and I added cooked black beans atop and sprinkled cheese on, its good.I saved the rest and put it in the fridge and we ate it on crackers the next day it was still good.

Sweet Potato Pecan Pie by EAGLE BRAND®

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
Great recipe! I left out the orange. My husband (who doesnt normally eat sweets at all) ate over half! I blended up almost 2 cups of pecans, and so it was partially chopped and mostly ground up, I was worried it woud ruin the topping but it didnt and actually it prevented the runny and liquidy topping everyone mentioned. I aleady printed this out and put it in my recipes. I am going to try pumpkin puree next time just cuz I really like pumpkins and I bet that would be good too. Oh I also used a 9 oz pie shell and put egg whites around the edge and on the bottom and precooked the shell (about 5mns.) before putting in the mixture. This helps to prevent burning too early on the shell and it wont get gooey.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
These were very delicious when I allowed to cook for only 12 minutes, added more vanilla, a dash of ginger, 1 cup of white sugar and 3/4 cup of brown sugar, and loads more cinnamon(we love cinnamon)oh and I added cinnamon to the icing. I made drops of teaspoon size and tried to flatten. They came out perfectly like a muffin top! I drizzled the icing up and down and then side to side instead of just pouring it on. It was a great recipe and I will make it again, only I will add chopped pecans next time. Thanks

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
I loved it! This was so delicious and when using parchment paper its no mess. I used sweetened coconut and it was so good, I think maybe next time I might add some lime juice for a twist. Its been awhile since I made this but I think I did 325 for just 16 minutes and it was perfect, but I cant recall Ill try it again and revise this but I know it was really good and I ate almost all by myself--which is why I haven't made anymore in awhile:)

Slow Cooker Barbeque

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2012
This is great, if you slightly brown a london broil all around in a pan first, and then put it in a crock pot for several hours, w/ little water. Then drain broth (don't discard)shred meat and then add KC Masterpiece original and cook for a few more hours. Don't add too much broth or water in it. If you do, it wont thicken up good and wont keep its flavor. We make this about 3-4 times a month. My family loves it Cut off the fat before you brown the meat. and there will be none to fool w/ later on. i dont add anything except the sauce and salt/pepper

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2012
Surprisingly good, I made the mistake of adding more cashews cuz we love them, but it actually took away from the flavor, and became too much w/ broccoli. I made it again the right way and it was the perfect amount of everything. A new favorite in our home.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2012
The best recipe by far for fish!!!! I use 1/3 C lemon juice and black pepper to taste along w/ sea salt and garlic powder. I also wrap it in a foil packet and bake for about 20 mns on 450 and then broil it for about 6 more mns. It is so good this is the only way I will cook fish and all my kids (7,5,3, and 1) and my husband LOVE IT!!!! It is so good w/ the balsamic asparagus and crock pot mashed potatoes recipes from this site.

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2012
This was great! I think next time though I might cut the sour cream a little and try just 2 cubes. I liked it but I can definately taste the sour cream and Im not a big fan of that. We even enjoyed it the next day made into patties.

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
I love it and we fix this regularly. But I dont use garlic, and I use plain tomatoes diced--sometimes I use it with added basil so I dont have to add that but there isnt much difference. This is a great recipe and goes well with a lot of things and its good for leftovers.

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
Perfect way to get in veggies!!! I used 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar and 1 teaspoon soy sauce and browned the butter. WORD OF ADVICE--eat as soon as its done otherwise the asparagus soaks up the sauce and it gets soggy.

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2011
This was amazing, but the freshness of the basil/tomatoes definately made this what it was! I used 1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar(due to high sulfates and Im pregnant)instead of what was called for, and I didnt have sun-dried tomatoes so I used fresh organic cherry tomatoes with organic roma tomatoes and a little extra olive oil(just a tad). I also reduced the garlic to 1 clove(not a big garlic fan), and added about 1/4 Cup of finely diced bell peppers maybe a little less. I used sea salt and added parsley. This was great and I couldnt find baguetts so I just used toasted wheat bread and it was great. i will try a thicker bread next time, cuz it did make my bread soggy, but it was still great. My husband even loved it and he is not a fan of store bought tomatoes at all.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
THE BEST! but I add cried blueberries, white chocolate chips,and cinnamon. I use organic sugar instead of white and brown (same amounts), I use 2 Tablespoons of vanilla(we love vanilla),1/2 cup of walnuts, and 1/2 a cup of pecans,and for some reason Im thinking I may have used 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder too...but I cant remember. I always modify and print my way out and add it to a seperate book. Anyway these are great this way but I love the added blueberries and white chocolate. I wish I could find vanilla chips instead.
