Grandma's Pear Preserves

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2013
REDUCED SUGAR BY HALF!! This was my first time making preserves...I used 5 cups sliced pears, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1/2 cup water, 2oz pectin, 3.5 cups white sugar, 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice, 1/4 cup brown sugar. The only modification in the cooking process was that I used a potato masher to mash the pears before the sugar, leaving some chunks. It gelled nicely and tastes great!

Shrimp Fried Rice II

Reviewed: May 8, 2012
So yummy and I even healthy-ed it up! I used 3 cups of brown rice and one tablespoon of coconut oil (so good for you) and a splash of olive oil in place of ALL the vegetable oil. I added a few chopped mushrooms and chopped cooked carrots in place of the bean sprouts. I also scrambled the eggs before adding them.

Patchwork Veggie Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
SUPER WONDERFUL! I made it exactly like it shows except I was only able to fit 1 1/2 cans of crescent rolls on my cookie sheet. Not only was it yummy, but it was so "pretty" - if food can be pretty :)

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
Yummy! Everyone loved this salad, hands down! I only made 2 substitutions: feta for the blue cheese and romaine for the lettuce. The candied pecans make this salad worthy of about 10 stars all by themselves.
