Halloween Eye of Newt

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2014
This was a hit at our Halloween party. I did have to make some slight modifications. Doubled the mayo, mustard and relish and ran it through a mixer to make it less thick in order to use a decorator. I also used dill relish instead of sweet per our preference. The green food coloring worked perfect for this. Some were even hesitant to eat not knowing what the "green stuff" was. Very fun!

Vegetarian Tortellini Cream Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2014
Forgot to mention, we use more spinach when it's just my me and husband. If you prefer more soup and less tortellini, use only one bag. My hubby prefers it with "more stuff in it."

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2013
Absolutely great recipe! I altered it only because I always try to minimize fat and cut sugar on all recipes. I cut the oil in half to 1/4 cup and used only 1 1/2 tbsp sugar. I skipped the green pepper (not a fan) but used the red pepper and it was plenty. We also added a can of garbanzo beans. My family raved over this! It was a great recipe to pack up and take to our boat. Tastes even better the 2nd day!

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
Great recipe although I made several changes to cut the calories from 642/8 or 428/12 down to 325 per 1/12 slice. Cut back the meat to 1 lb and drained fat after saute. Used reduced fat mozzarella and ricotta and used 9 lasagna strips of Dreamfield's lower glycemic index pasta. Flavor from seasonings is great although I also reduced the salt. My entire family raved over this without them ever knowing about the substitutions. I have found that I can still enjoy my favorites without all the fat and calories. I agree about refrigeration one night prior for flavor and keep boiling of noodles to 5-7 min and pat dry. Keeps the lasagna from being runny. Will definitely make again!

Pumpkin Pie Squares

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
Prepared as written for Thanksgiving dessert and went over very well w/ both family and friends. You can't beat this dessert for the calories per serving. There are many other recipes out there at 3x the calories, but this can't be beat for the taste!

Broccoli and Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
Great recipe! Followed suggestions made by other reviewers. Cut back to 1/2 onion (and was still strong), cut back to 1/4 c sugar (was plenty), used 3 tsp vinegar, cut back to 1/4 c sunflower seeds, added 1/4 c pecans, omitted raisins and lastly topped w/ some shredded cheddar cheese. My husband preferred the changes and agreed, recipe could cut back even more on onion. Didn't need to blanche broccoli (prefer more nutrition eating raw veggies). Used frozen tortellini. Had made bacon and eggs for breakfast this morning and was able to prepare bacon for this recipe for dinner saving time. Quick and delicious! Even w/ slight alterations.... still 5 stars!

Gravy Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
A hit with the family! Both hubby and 15 yr old son loved. Took advice of previous reviewers and used a lot of seasoning while saute (Old Bay, garlic powder, salt pepper). Didn't have Cream of Mushroom on hand so used Cream of Potato instead and worked well with both milk and water. Used boneless pork chops, cut the oven to 300 and cooked about 50 minutes. Tender and moist! Served over brown rice with a side of Candied Carrots and this will become a family favorite!

Candied Almonds

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
Wonderful to be able to recreate the same snack that I love at our local Autumn Festival. I doubled the recipe ingredients but loaded up to 2 lbs of almonds (vs 4 cups). Set a timer for 20-25 minutes and keep stirring until water evaporates and almonds lose their shine. This will dry out the almonds and make them crunchy. Great recipe!

Candied Carrots

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
Quick and easy...used 1 lb bag of baby carrots and steamed instead of boil (to retain more flavor and nutrition). Skipped pepper and substituted 2 shakes of cinnamon instead. Agree w/ cooking down a bit to reduce and using a little cornstarch to thicken. Even my 14 yr old manage to eat a few...this from the teenager who hates to eat vegetables!

Pittsburgh Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
Quick and easy. Watch the the cheese/butter in saucepan. Will burn easy even on low setting w/ gas stove. Must stir constantly. Lots of flavor. My 14 yr old son loved it.

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
Very cheesy and very filling. I agree that bread crumbs are really not necessary. Will try paprika next time as suggested by others. A bit of work but the taste is phenomenal!
