Apricot Brown Sugar Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
We loved this glaze. I used a brandied peach jam since I didn't have apricot. The foil stuck to my roasting pan...guess I should have expected this but it has been a pain to clean up. Next time I will spray the pan before adding foil. This will be my "go to" ham recipe from now on. Easy and delicious.

Hot German Potato Salad III

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
When I first took a bit I thought it was a bit too sour...but after a few mouthfuls I quite liked it. My 15 year old step-son loved it and wondered if I could fry the potatoes and use for a breakfast dish. May be....we'll see.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
I loved this....it was such a change from the canned mushroom soup recipes most of the meat dish preparations require on this site. It was subtle with a hint of caramel sweetness. I should say that I forgot to buy the pecans on my shopping trip...and only had one apple at home so substituted a pear for the second apple. It was delish....I liked the mix of apple and pear. Since they look alike on top of the pork you're not quite sure what to expect with each bite.

Chewy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
These are the best. I need nut free granola bars and want them to be preservative free and low in sugar. Good luck finding them in a grocery store. I used 1/2 butter melted, no sugar, 3/4 c. honey and 1/4 c. applesauce. I pressed them into a pampered chef large bar pan (similar to a cookie sheet), covered them with waxed paper and rolled them with a rolling pin. The first time I made them I took them out 1/2 way to roll them again (covered with waxed paper). I let them cool partially in the pan, cut them into 32 and wrapped them all indiv. and then put them into a large freezer bag and popped them into the freezer. They are delicious frozen and are perfect for popping into the kids lunch boxes in the am (the schools are nut free...hence my quest for a peanut butter free granola bar). They also make a healty breakfast choice when you are in a rush to get out the door (of course this depends on what you add for accessories....I tried craisins, white chocolate chips and sunflower seeds the first time....and semi-sweet mini choc chips with raisins and sunflower seeds the second time). I will be making these weekly during the school year FOR SURE!! Thanks SO much for this recipe!!

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
Delicious! I didn't have two cans of black beans so used 1 can of mixed beans and another one of black beans. I used a submersion blender to puree it while it was in the crock pot. I ate it with sour cream and green onions...but added crushed nacho chips to the top of the kids bowls. My fussy 9 year old son gobbled it up and loved it!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2008
I reduce the sugar to 2/3 cup, leave my bananas slightly lumpy and bake for 55 minutes. Perfectly flavorful with pockets of intense moist banana flavor.

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
This is amazing. The best part is that both adults and children love it. I tell the adults it is "Thai" noodles and tell the kids it is "peanut butter noodles". I didn't have chili paste so used a pinch of dried chili pepper seeds. I also used spaghetti and spaghettini noodles....tonight I am making it with multicolored spiral noodles and adding some chicken to it.

Maple Dill Carrots

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
Oh My Gosh....I really....and I mean REALLY second guessed teh dill with the sugar....I love garlic, cream and dill...the usual...but really hesitated but decided to go for it. Boy am I ever glad I did. I first steamed the carrots and then tossed them in the melted butter brown sugar and dried dill (didn't have fresh)...and it was so so good. Loved it. It is barely finised and the kids haven't tasted it...can't wait until they do and will post an update. Thanks

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
The best crust. Adding spices to the crust isn't neccessary....those can be added to your sauce and other flavors can be added via your toppings. I made this twice when my yeast wasn't active (too old I guess) and everybody loved it as a flat crust too....but whoa look out when you add active yeast....what a huge crust. This easily makes two pizza crusts....nice and chewy if you don't overbake it. People are asking for the recipe....which is a good indicator of a keeper!

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
I used fat free mayo and found it a little heavy for my taste, but I have to give this a 5 for being one of the moistest chicken dishes I have prepared. It also lends itself well to substituting the artichoke hearts with other veggies like broccoli, mushrooms or spinach etc. I am sure by using half sour cream and half mayo it will solve the problem of the dominant taste of mayo.

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
I printed this recipe off based on the ingredients and stars....but didn't look at the prep instructions. Of course when it came time to make dinner I didn't have time to marinate it for 8 hours nor was I going out in the snow to grill the chicken. In essence what I did was marinate partially frozen, boneless skinless chicken thighs in the marinade for about 4 hours. I think removed the chicken and placed it in a pie plate and baked it at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. The chicken was moist and extremely delicious!! I served it with roasted baby potatoes and steamed broccoli, This will become a regular dish in our house.

Creamy Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
We loved this soup. My daughter especially liked the chunks of tomato. It was rich so next time I will decrease the cream cheese by half and add a bit more skim milk. I made this a second time using a can of crushed tomatoes instead of tomatoe chunks to please my son, reduced the cream cheese to 1/2 (used low fat cream cheese) and added enough skim milk to make it "soupy" to my liking. It was fantastic!!

Home Style Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
I did forget to add the mustard so thought I would add it to the crumb topping at the end...and I also made too many breadcrumbs (didn't measure, just dumped)but it was still fabulous! We loved it...and will make it time and time again!

Corn and Black Bean Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
Sooo delicious. I am biased as I really love this combo of vinegar, oil, cumin and cilantro. You really can't go wrong....and when you throw in veggies, grains or beans it can't help but work.

Old Fashioned Raisin Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
I have never had or heard of raisin pie before when a friend of mine commented "don't you just wish you could find raisin pie like mom/grammie used to make"....to which I said..."yuck". After the same fried had a radical surgery and tramatic diagnosis I made this pie for her and took it to her home. She loved it...closed her eyes and said..."it taste's just like my grandmothers". I would consider that a success!!

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
This is a wonderful sandwhich mix. I used a light Miracle Whip but because of the tang I think light mayo will work better....will definately make again and again especially for functions. Thanks!

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
This salad was delicious. I didn't have green onions so used a small onion and diced it very small and I doubled the dressing. Next time I am going to use green onions and increase the cilantro. I also think a drizle of maple syrup would be a nice additional flavor...but I have to try that. This will become a healthy, filling low fat staple in my home. Thanks!

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2008
I love this salad. The cilantro really sets the tone for the taste....it has just the right amount of spice. The only change I made was to omit the salt and added chopped fresh green and yellow beans. The crunch they add is a nice added touch.

Maple-Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
Absolutely delicious....I scaled it back to work for one chicken breast.....and omited the sugar....and it was sooo good. I was feeding myself and my four year old son so used medium (biryani) curry paste and we both loved it. I tossed it with a multi colored (veggie) spiral noodle.

My sister made this for a dinner party and it was delicious. She used a ton of spinach though and everybody gave it rave reviews.
