Bread Pudding I

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2014
I made this today and it was fabulous I used a loaf of very stale wheat French bread. I was concerned because the bread was so hard it was difficult to cut into chunks. I made the following adjustments. 1. 5 eggs in lieu of 6 as reviewers suggested. 2. 2 cups fat free evaporated milk and 1 cup water. 3. Splenda in lieu of sugar 4. Semi sweet chocolate chips instead of raisins. I made a caramel bourbon sauce to serve over it. Because the bread was so hard I let it sit for about 15 minutes before baking. It was perfect! I like dense bread pudding and this was just to my liking. Will definitely make again. Next time I may add a bit more Splenda.

Hash Brown Casserole II

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2014
I made this today and it got mixed reviews. Some thought it was fantastic and other thought it needed more work and perhaps more time in the oven. I made a double batch and followed tips from past reviewers. I eliminated the butter. I used three cans of soup (mushroom, chicken, and celery), which is what I had on hand. I did not add a topping. I let the potatoes thaw as suggested. I mixed everything last night and baked the casserole today. After over 2 hours it was nowhere near done. I then cranked up the over to 385 and baked another hour. It was brown around the edges, which provided some much needed texture. Some guest felt it still did not seem done. Also, my sons felt it would have been more enjoyable had I used cream of cheddar soup in lieu of the ones I used. I think I agree. Also, I baked it in a round, deep dish instead of a 9x13 pan. The depth may have influenced the cooking time and texture. I need a good potato recipe that will feed a crowd and will continue to work on this until I perfect it!

Easy Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2013
I have used this recipe many times, with the following additions: 1 tablespoon of poppy seeds added to the cracker crumbs, a can of cream of celery soup to make more sauce, and thyme and garlic power to the chicken for additional flavor. My family loves it served over brown rice.

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
Made this for the first time today and just finished a bowl. It was delicious. I used a 20 oz package of hot turkey italian sausage. I used 2 cans of stewed tomatoes as suggested by other reviewers. I used 2 cans of low sodium beef broth and 2 cups of salt free free chicen broth. I added a can of kidney beans in addition to the great norther bean. I also added about of cup of elbow macaroni during the last 9 minutes. I added zucchini and celery. Finally, I added a bag of frozen spinash. My first reactiion was that the soup was a bit sweet and lacked salt. I added some salt which tamed the sweetness. To reduce the sweetness in the future I think I'll use plain diced tomatoes and add italian seasons. I'm looking forward to tomorrow because I think this is a soup that is even better left over. A great soup that I will make often!

Strawberry-Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
I just made a batch with the blender I received for Christmas and was extremely pleased with both! I made a few changes. I used Silk Plain Lowfat Soy Milk because that is what we usually drink. I added 4 packs of Splenda instead of honey, and added only a splash of OJ, which I will probably omit in the future and ad a bit more soy milk. It was wonderful. It was so thick I had to eat it with a spoon, which I prefer. I suggest adding more liquid if you want to sip through a straw. This is a keeper, which I will have as a treat several times a week.

Scrambled Tofu

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
I made this today and it was great! I used dry mustard instead of tumeric, as one reader suggested and also added a little creole seasoning for some heat. I omitted the tomatoes and cheese because I'm not wild about either in my eggs. I thoroughly enjoyed the dish and liked much better than egg beaters.

Bacon Wrapped Barbeque Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
Great recipe. However, I have discovered some substitutions. I did microwave the bacon as many suggested. The first time I made it I ran out of BBQ seasoning about halfway through my shrimp, so I substituted mesquite and liked it better than the BBQ seasoning. I prefer the smokey mesquite flavor over the sweetness of the BBQ seasoning. Also, I decided that I did not want bacon on all of the shrimp so I dipped some in the bacon grease and rolled them in the seasoning. They were equally tastey. I served the shrimp to a group of friends last wek and they all raved over them. This recipe is a keeper! I encourage you to try it with the mesquite seasoning.

Warm Crab Parmesan Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
Great Dip! I served it to two of my most finicky girlfriends today and they loved it. As most other reviewers I modified the recipe a bit. I used: 2 cans of crab meat; low fat sour cream; low fat spreadable cream cheese; 1 cup grated parmesan; 4 cloves garlic. I also added several dashes of worcestershire sauce and a dash of Louisiana style hot sauce. I omitted the mayo based on the suggestion of other reviewers. I mixed the ingredients the night before and baked for one hour before serving. I served it with small rounds of garlic toast, which I made myself. I was surprisingly pleased with the can crab but will try fresh next time to see if there is a significant difference. I may also add shrimp. This is a keeper that I will serve often.

Run For The Roses Pie III

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
Delicious, though not what I anticipated. I thought it would be similar to a pecan pie, but it is more like a deep dish chocolate chip cookie. I baked one for Thanksgiving day and another one the following day since I had ingrediants. I used Southern Comfort instead of Bourbon and it was just fine. I put 2 tablespoons in the second one and it did not alter the consistency. I are with a few dollops of cool whip. This is a keeper! Fast and delicious!
