Fast Chicken Soup Base

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
This is excellent. Makes a rich full bodied soup. I made it with a rotisserie chicken and the skin darkened the soup a little too much for my eye. But the flavor was fantastic, I added a couple cups of chicken broth from a box and that "lightened" the color. Great idea!

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
Exellent, re-warms well, just one suggestion, do not fry the bacon with the onions. Fry the bacon, then remove from pot, (I use lean bacon, so very little fat left), saute onions and garlic, then add bacon back and continue with rest of the recipe. Great recipe, my husbnd loved it and it makes great leftovers.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
Like others, I changed it a bit, but these are really uyummy and its the pecans that do it. This is how I did it. We are both type 2 diabetics, so I used Splenda brown sugar blend. I floured and browned 2 boneless pork chops, put them in a pie pan, added butter and pecans and apples to the frying pan and cooked until apples were crisp tender. Added cinnamonand ntumeg to the apples while cooking. Then put one teaspoon of brown sugar blend on top of each pork chip and kind of patted it down. Poured apples/nut mixture over the top and sprinkled with one more teaspoon of brown sugar. then I put hte pie pan onto of a rimmed cookie sheet and added frozen sweet potato fries. Baked it all together for 20 minutes at the temp on the sweet potato fry bag (425?). Everything is done at the same time that way. Also you can add more apples or a veggie to make it a really big meal for heartier appetites. But great recipe! Made it twice in the past few weeks, its a keeper!

Apple Radish BBQ Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2010
I left out the garlic salt, worchestershire and horse radish and they turned out great! 4 lbs is a rack of ribs, I cut them in quarters to fit in the stock pot and it took two large bottles of apple juice to cover them. But we didn't need 3 cups of BBQ sauce. The meat was incredibly tender, the sauce had the nice flavor of the apples as did the meat itself. Great recipe, will use over and over again!

Taco Seasoning

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
Just perfect! Just the right amount of kick and if you like things spicier, you could easily increase the red pepper flakes or the chili powder slightly. I am going to mix up a big batch and seal it in snack size bags to have on hand.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2012
Excellent, juicy, brown, skin very crisp. Even gives you pan drippings. I found it a bit peppery for my taste, but will make it again with a different blend of spices. Just w of us, so after we ate it with noodles and a veg, then I used meat in chicken pot pies (4), and then used the carcass for soup. So we got multiple meals from one chkcen! Great value!

Parmesan Basil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2013
Like others I modified this a bit, but it was great! Changes I made were minor, left out the rosemary (not something our family enjoys), and I added a can of diced Italain style tomatoes that I blended with an immerison blender before adding. I also added one can of no fat 1/2 and 1/2. Everything else was the same and this is a great soup.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2014
I did some changes to make it more diabetic friendly and it worked well. Very tasy, moist, just what you want from zucchin bread. My changes were to use 1 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup oil, replace white sugar with Splenda Brown Sugar blend (more flavor and it is 1/2 splenda, 1/s brown sugar, so 1/2 the carbs!), and I think I used more zucchini than called for as I shredded it up in a food processor. Seems like a nice eary to adpat, recipe. Thanks!

Peach Cobbler Dump Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2014
If you want to cut down on the sweetness and/or cut down on the carbs, there is an easy fix. My husband's family calls this Fruit Cocktail Cake. So we use 2 cans of fruit cocktail, 1 of peaches and 1 of pears, cut into pieces. (14 oz cans, not the big one) I drain the juice out of most of the cans and just make sure the fruit is moist. Then use sugar free cake mix on top. Like everyone says, good easy recipe. Wonderful taste and nobody ever thinks its dry cake mix! Thanks for sharing!

Family Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2013
I had really ripe bananas, but no buttermilk, so searched for a recipe without that. This was an excellent recipe. I was in a hurry and did not soften the cream cheese enough, so it ended up with tiny pieces of cream cheese in it but when it baked, they disappeared. Like other reviewers, I used brown sugar, but I used brwon sugar blend by Splenda and because I had 4 bananas, I used 4. I think this is a recipe that can be tweaked many ways and still turn out great!

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2012
I have made these before but lost the recipe! They are so good and like others have said, you can easily make them sugar free by using Splenda instead of sugar. I also add all fruit preserves to the top of the cream cheese which others have suggested. You can also substitute puff pastry for this. Just put one sheet in the botom and one on the top, but you will have to slightly roll out or stretch the puff pastry to have it fit a 13x9 pan. Ooooooh, making these this weekend, can't wait. Thanks for posting the recipe.

Really, really good. I had some really rouch prok chops (boneless) and put them in the crockpot with the soup and cooked on low for 10 hours, then followed the rest of the recipe, shredding and then adding sauce and baking, Really great. Almost no work. Super!

Cucumber Gyro Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
Exactly what I wanted, thanks for a great recipe. I used 2 cucumbers and after shredding them put them in a dish towel and twisted it to remove as much "water" as possible. That is my only hint, the rest was wonderful!

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2003
Really good french dip "juice" but I had to make the beef a little longer than the recipe called for. Since this is just for my husband and myself, after I cut off some for the sandwiches, I cooked some carrots, potatoes and onions in the juice in the crockpot, thickened it with a little flour and had a great beef stew the next night.

Pear Pie II

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2004
Yummy! We are trying to watch our sugar, so I used 1/3 cup sugar, 1/3 cup brown sugar and 1/3 cup Splenda. We only had 2 large Asian pears, so they are still a little crunchy. Next time I will use bartletts. I also added a handful of raisins (that I plumped in hot water) and they added some another layer of flavor and texture. I thought the almond extract was just perfect. Will definitely make again! Thanks for a great recipe--one more thing, we ate it right out of the oven and it was great, can't wait to taste it tomorrow when it is cold as recipe called for.
