My Mother-in-Law's Plum Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2011
I used dried plums instead of fresh, as that's what I had on-hand, and it was soooooooo good! My family & guests loved it, and after an hour we were sad to find that it was gone!

Dinner in a Pumpkin I

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2011
The first time I tried to make this I ended up with the wrong kind of cooking pumpkin, and I wouldn't have been able to get into its hard shell without boiling it for an hour. So I went pumpkinless, and made a casserole with the cabbage and filling instead, and my family went completely bonkers for it! I modified the recipe a little - used ground turkey instead of beef, tripled the garlic (we love love love garlic), and used Trader Joe's low-fat creamy tomato soup instead of tomato juice because I had it on-hand; also, as recommended by other reviewers, I omitted the green beans and cooked the rice half-way before adding to the other ingredients. I also probably used 4 or 5 cups of coarsely chopped cabbage. Layered in a casserole, cabbage on bottom, meat/soup/rice mixture on top, with a few cabbage sprinkles on top, this was really fabulous, and has been added to my regular meal planning rotation. I did cook the filling in a pumpkin once and it was great, but we were all a little disappointed in having a change to the dish we liked so much!

Sweet Potato Souffle

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
I used this recipe as a Thanksgiving side dish instead of the same old sweet potato & marshmallow casserole, and it didn't last long at all. Everyone LOVED IT, myself included! I used egg substitute instead of whole eggs, and the dish still had a nice little touch of custard flavor. I also used Smart Balance margarine in the potatoes (real butter for the topping) and skim milk to cut back on the fat a little. This dish was truely a wonderful addition to our holiday meal!

Black Bean Tortilla Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2010
I made this as an alternative to black bean tacos & it worked out really well. I started with dry black beans & cooked them in a pressure cooker to avoid mushy beans after baking, and used a thick salsa instead of picante sauce. I also replaced half of the reduced fat Mex-blend cheese with Cabot 75% reduced fat cheddar to make it just a wee bit more low-cal-diet-friendly, and used whole wheat tortillas. Turned out great - will probably add some chili powder and/or canned chilli peppers next time.

Maryland Crab Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
PERFECT!! Very authentic! Like other reviewers, I swapped the lima beans for cubed potatoes. Other than that, it's wonderful as-is. I look forward to making the soup again VERY soon!

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
I made this for my family to nibble on for breakfast on Thanksgiving day, and they all loved it! I substituted the canned pumpkin puree with 15 oz. fresh pumpkin that I steamed and pureed in a food processor, and used apple sauce instead of oil. I'll defintely be using this recipe again at Christmas!
