Puppy Chow

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2003
Cute story to tell... I had a gathering and offered some Puppy Chow to 4 yr-old Anthony. He asked what was in it. I told him it was Chex cereal that had melted chocolate and peanut butter poured on it. Then it was tossed in powdered sugar. He says "Oh no... I couldn't possibly eat that." Thinking he was allergic to something I kind of freaked and asked why not. He put his little hand to his chest, took a step backwards and said "Because it sounds too delicious." FOUR YEARS OLD! Needless to say, I had to give the kid a hug. Anthony proceeded to gobble it up and even took a doggy bag (which he thought was hilarious) home for his brother.

Crushed Pineapple Sour Cream Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2003
I figured out what might cause the runniness of the filling!!! I don't know if anyone else has ever noticed, but if you stir and handle sour cream too much, it breaks down and becomes runny. I mixed the sugar, pineapple and pudding mix on low speed for 2 minutes. Then I folded in the sour cream with a spatula until it was evenly mixed. Wah-la! Firm and tasty pie filling. I used lite sour cream, a shortbread pie crust and garnished it with sliced strawberries and whipped cream... and boy was it tasty!!!! My friend's husband went back for thirds!

Slow Cooker Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2002
I added a few dashes of Mrs. Dash's Onion and Herb Powder when preparing the soup and a few more dashes about an hour b4 i served the soup. I put bacon bits, scallions and some cheddar on the side for folks to garnish the soup. Huge hit at the office food day.

Creamy Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2003
Yummy! Made this for dessert one evening at a dinner party... it was delish. If anything, it was a little too rich... I added about a cup of milk to the recipe to balance the chocolate flavor. It was da bomb!

Raw Veggie Picnic Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
YUM!!! Suggested a friend make this for a picnic. The entire batch was gobbled up! Instead of using the both types of onions, she only used the green onions. I am going to try a lighter version using lowfat or fatfree mayo, Splenda instead of Sugar, and turkey bacon. I will post with the results.

Laura's Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2004
I make a very similar recipe that I would consider a 5 star recipe... however... I use cottage cheese, cream cheese (1/2 a brick, I believe - I'll double check)and bleu cheese - no sour cream. I throw all 3 ingredients into the food processor and blend and then add finely chopped pecans or walnuts. I serve it with crackers and thin slices of granny smith apples (soaked in lemon water to prevent browning). A friend that loves the recipe has dubbed it as "Cheese Goo".

Cheesy Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2002
I LOVE these potatoes. My mom has been making these "heart attack on a plate" potatoes for years sans the onion and bacon bits. To cut down on the fat, use light mayo and light velveeta cheese. Still has the same great taste, but half the fat!!!!! Always a favorite at any kind of potluck dinner!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Wacky Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2001
I had a small gathering which the neighbor kids helped me prepare for. The 12 year-old girl made the cake and it was delicious. We decided to get REALLY wacky and added chocolate and peanut butter morsels to the cake and the peanut butter topping. We also threw in some marshmallows and toffe bits. It was delish!

Red Wine Flavored Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2004
I was cooking for 2, so I found some shoulder flanks (very lean pieces of meat), about 8 slices and two pounds worth - and turned this into a 5 star recipe. I marinated them overnight in a cup of red wine and 2 tablespoons of garlic. Once I put it into the crockpot and added another cup of wine and two cans of beef broth and the onion soup mix. I removed some meat, put it on hoagie buns with some light swiss cheese and baked it long enough to melt the cheese. We then used the broth to dip the sandwiches into and to pour onto some mashed potatoes.

Warm Crab Parmesan Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2003
Delicious! This was a GREAT recipe. The only thing I altered in this recipe is that I used some fresh imitation crab (as one of my guests is allergic to shell fish). It was a HUGE hit at my dinner party. I used Just 2 Good mayo and light cream cheese and sour cream and it was still very rich in flavor. You couldn't tell that I had skimped on some fat grams! I used my veggie chopper to chop the crab and saved some major time.

Butter Brickle Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2003
Delicious! Next time I'll add toffee bits to the batter and on top of the icing. It was also pretty easy to make.

Tomato Brie Bow Tie Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2004
I found this to be rather blah. It's great in theory, but just blah in taste. I do like the idea of adding the Brie to my regular tomato sauce for a different flavor. Next time I will melt the brie in the microwave before adding to the sauce... the heat was too high and it curdled.

Slow Cooker Spicy Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
Yum! The only change I made to the recipe was that I added a couple of cups of chopped kale. I must admit that I've never really had black-eyed peas, but my friends have and said they were delicious. I must add that I rarely ever make only one change to a recipe. Definitely a keeper!

Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
It was alright. Not quite as peanut buttery and sweet as I was expecting.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
Awesome! While a self-proclaimed Cookie Monster, I'm not a big fan oatmeal cookies, I sampled one to make sure they were edible. They were so edible that I had 2 more. :O) I followed the recipe to the letter EXCEPT I had substituted pumpkin spice for the ground cloves since I didn't have any of those on hand.

Sweet and Spicy Soup with Black-Eyed Peas and Sweet Potato

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
I really don't like being a negative Nelly, but I didn't care for this recipe at all. :O( I followed the recipe as written, so it may just be that I don't like my soups to be sweet. I ended up draining the veggies and freezing them to do something with at a later time.

Darra's Famous Tuna Waldorf Salad Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
People ALWAYS ask me for this recipe. To make it more Weight Watcher-friendly, I usually use half the mayo the recipe calls for and use 1 point wheat pocket pitas instead of the croissants. I also omit the celery because I am allergic to the taste of it. I've also used shredded chicken in lieu of the tuna. This one is ALWAYS a big hit at potlucks.

Feta Cheese Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2004
Burgers were still a little bland. They seemed to be missing something. I don't like olives, so maybe eliminating those from the recipe changed the flavor drastically.

Down Home Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2003
It's definitely rich and creamy! If it's too creamy for your tastes, thin it out with some milk. Mac and Cheese is one of my favorites of all time. Only a special recipe would get 5 stars outta me!!
