Broccoli and Ramen Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2014
Wonderful summertime recipe. We find this salad in all our family bbq's and parties. When making it myself I vary the nuts with sometimes just doubling peanuts and skipping out on the cashews. Even tried it with pumpkin seeds instead of sunflowers once because it's what I had on hand, and it was still delicious.

Sweet Potato Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2014
Great summer recipe, made it for first time this weekend and it was a big hit. I did adjust the seasoning to taste instead of following the recipe exactly but meanwhile have to eliminate celery, hubby and kids hate celery but the onion still gave it a crunch. This will be a family regular recipe especially for hot days.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2014
Great recipe and easy to make. Everyone in the family loves it even the kids. Only thing I do different is double the Marsala & sherry for the sauce so we can drizzle it on whatever side we make with it like mash potatoes or spaghetti. At times I also use fresh oregano because I just have so much in my garden.

Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken II

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2014
Loved this recipe! Easy to make and delicious. This will become a frequent dish in my home. But I hate to say I did change one little thing- I just had to add a splash of white wine to deglaze the pan.

Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2014
Very tasty but I did mash the bananas before adding them and added a pinch of nutmeg and cinnamon. I only sprinkled maybe half the amount of the chocolate chips on top of the pudding before baking, we thought it was sweet enough and didn't need more chips. I will definitely make again especially with old bread left over and ripe bananas- this is the perfect solution.

Sunflower Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2011
I love this recipe! But I'm sorry I haven't followed exactly because bacon isn't liked by everyone. Also I had no raisins or green onions so I substituted for craisins and a bit of finely chopped onion, red or white. But it was a big hit at the family dinner and had to make again the following family get together. thank you for a wonderful way to eat broccoli!

Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
The title of this recipe says it perfectly, it's a "delicious egg salad". I just made this but didn't have green onions on hand so I sprinkled some dried chives and it was still very yummy.

Pineapple Filling

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
Excellent filling! Thanks to the reviews that I read which helped me greatly because I only had canned crushed pineapple and saw one reviewer who used it successfully. Also followed another review who did it right on direct heat in a saucepan. Both variations worked and the filling turned out terrific which I used to fill a jelly roll and topped with coconut....delicious!

Seafood Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
Simple to make and a great meal especially on hot summer days. The creamy dressing is delicious. I don't add the celery because I have some picky eaters who hate them so I subsititute the celery for green onions to add the color and more flavor. Otherwise I follow the recipe exactly and love the tang of the vinegar with the balance of sugar. It tastes better than the salads the deli sells.

Veal Scallopini

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
A wonderful dinner, very tasty and everyone enjoyed it. I followed it exactly but added just a touch of white wine. I'm going to try this with chicken next time.

Brown Sugar Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
Used this to top off a pear cake I made from this site. It added another dimension to the flavors, but I had to give it 4 star because it was amazing when it was freshly made but the next day it was disappointing. I also found the brandy flavor to be a bit strong, next time I'll play around with the measurements.

Fabulously Sweet Pear Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2011
Good cake. The pears I used were very ripe. I didn't put any pecans because I didn't have them around, next time I'll add them. I regret following the reviews because someone recommended to do this in bread loafs because they found the texture to be dense....well, I did that and I divided the batter into 2 bread loaf pans because I was afraid 9x13 might be too much for us and thought to share a loaf with my in-laws but now I wish I didn't. Its definitly not dense like bread but very moist. I also topped it off with the brown sugar glaze on this site. I enjoyed it but my hubby wasn't thrilled with it. Next time i'll do this in a 9x13 pan and add the pecans with no frosting to really give this cake a fair review.

Three Bean Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
I hesitated to review because I didn't have some of the ingredients but it was soooo good regardless that I couldn't help myself. I didn't have green onions so I used a small ordinary onion finely chopped. No cayenne pepper or celery ...we didn't miss them. No kidney beans but I did have black beans so I put those in instead. I also added a bit of cilantro and a garlic clove minced even though I added the powder version of garlic too. Everyone had seconds even the picky eaters. I'm keeping this one and using it again. Wonderful dish.

Sun-dried Tomatoes I

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
Love this recipe! I wish I found this years ago because its a perfect solution to all the tomatoes we get from our garden and sun dried tomatoes can be expensive at the market. I made this on the weekend and used half of them yesterday in a pasta/shrimp recipe. WOW! Delicious and perfect. I stored them in olive oil in a canning jar in my fridge. Next time I'm going to try to put in freezer bags and freeze them. Thank you for such a terrific recipe!

Cocoa Apple Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
It tastes good but it was a disaster when I tried to get it out of the bundt pan. Luckily I wasn't bringing this cake to anyone because it split in half and the top part remained in the pan. I felt so discouraged because I've never had issues getting cakes out before. And I'm still racking my brain if I did something wrong. But my mom saw it and quickly fixed it. It doesn't look as bad now. But she found it too chocolately (she doesn't care for chocolate) and I love it because of the chocolate chips. Others are eating it and haven't said anything. It is a great way to get rid of all the apples I have.

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
I found them to be very good. We have so many apples from apple picking and I was getting tired of making pie and had to try something new. I've tried making apple cake before and was really disappointed so I didn't have high expectations when I made this...but it blew me away and I enjoyed it. They're like apple brownies with a nice chewy texture. I followed what one reviewer said about not testing it for "doneness" by inserting a toothpick but just cooked it for the time the recipe required. I also didn't have walnuts so I had use peacans. And after putting the batter in the pan I lightly sprinkled the cinnamon sugar on top. Oh, and I added a bit more than a 1/2 cup of apple...almost used 1 cup just because I really need to get rid of the apples and I'm glad I did because every bite has apple in it. Yummy. I was giving them five stars but my husband didn't care for them and other family members agreed that they were just "okay" but nothing to rave about. So I took a star off. I'll probably try these again when I have too many apples at home.

Grilled Lamb with Brown Sugar Glaze

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
Good recipe, but I didn't give it a full five stars because we thought the brown sugar was too powerful in the taste, making it too sweet.

Oatmeal Pancakes II

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
Really good pancakes. I followed the recipe exactly except I didn't have quick cooking oats just the old fashioned oats. I don't know if that made a big difference in taste. But I'll be making these again.

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
If there were more stars, I would give it because five stars doeesn't do this recipe justice. These are the BEST brownies I've eaten. I've tried other home made recipes but they were just to much work or didn't compare to the box mixes. But this recipe is easy to make and tastes better than box mixes. I followed the recipe exactly but I didn't have a 9 by 9 pan so I used an 8 by 8 and just kept my eyes on them to pull them out of the oven when they were done. These will be the only ones I'll be making from now on.
