Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
I made this recipe using 1 cup sugar, very good! Here's the utensils that made it easy: 6 quart pot large 1 quart measuring cup 64 ounce pitcher 2 zip lock gallon bags I lined the pitcher with the zip lock bag and used the measuring cup to fill the bag with punch. I had a wet washcloth underneath to catch those drips that stain the counter. I then sealed the bag and slid it out into the freezer. Repeat with 2nd bag. No sticky spills!

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
These were a big hit at Thanksgiving. Easy to make and a fun family activity. I used a chive flavored cream cheese which was fine but I wished I had gone with a stronger tasting cheese. Next time I will use ranch flavored. Thank you!

Delicious! A great balance of flavors. I made half the recipe with no changes. I would bring this to any gathering.

Carrot and Raisin Salad II

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2011
The dressing tasted like fruit salad dressing to my family. I used light mayo and light sour cream. I thought the addition of fruit was really needed so I chopped an apple and added that. Good, but pineapple would have been better. I think I will use this dressing again but play with the other ingredients to find that just right balance of flavor. Thank you!

Cranberry Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
I thought this was just okay. My family has been enjoying cranberries and cranberry gelatin salad for years. I lost my recipe so I thought I try something a bit different. This was not a hit and I ended up throwing away over half of it. It just didn't have the tartness we like.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
No one in our home likes sweet potatos but the reviews got me to try it. My picky eaters really liked them and so do I. I made half the recipe and came out with 6 huge burritos and leftover filling for another 5 smaller ones. I didn't get to the store for more tortillas for 2 days to finish them up and there was no problem with leaving the extra in a sealed container in the refrigerator. I microwaved one for lunch for just a few minutes and there was no mushiness. Handy for brown bag lunches. Thank you!

Frosted Rhubarb Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2012
A nice cookie with the same comfort value as an oatmeal cookie. That being said, next time I will add nuts and/or another fruit. The rhubarb just didn't come through. I used less coconut so that didn't bring much flavor. I also used 2 cups of defrosted rhubarb from the garden. Very moist!

Pecan Clouds

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
I used one half the amount of pecans, chopped, and it was a lot! Very chewy and delicious, I couldn't stop eating them. I want to try this recipe with even less nuts and see how it works. Thank you!

Greek Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
I really liked the ingredient list. I followed it exactly and found the onion to be too strong for my taste. If I were to make it again I would cut the onion to at least half and either put more tomatos in or possibly a bean or small noodle. Thank you sharing this Jerry.

Cayenne Pretzels

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
These are worth the wait. I didn't get very many as they disappeared fast! I tried the 2nd batch with less oil and the family disapproved. I added double the amount of cayenne and I was disappointed with the lack of fire, but otherwise the flavor is very good.

Spinach and Black Bean Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
I really liked this pasta combination. I thought it sounded different, which was what I was hunting for. It wasn't the prettiest dish. I used chicken broth and sprinkled extra cayenne on each serving along with the parmesan. Wow! A great blend of flavors!

Italian Pasta Salad I

Reviewed: May 15, 2009
Can you ruin this great recipe? I doubt it! I thought I had all the ingredients. It still turned out very well when I used only half of the amount of caesar dressing and upped the italian dressing to make up for it. I also put in less green pepper and onion then the recipe called for. Still tastey. To bulk it up for a meal I added mozzerella shredded cheese and sliced black olives. Thank you.

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
Fast & Easy! I didn't want to decorate so I took half of the sugar that was meant for decoration and added it to the dough. I also used 1 tsp vanilla & 1 tsp almond flavoring. Perfect!

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
I really liked this. I doubled the cayenne and omitted the cilantro to suit my taste. I think it could use another punch of flavor too. Thank you for this recipe, it was my introduction to quinoa and I'll be making it again.
