Fry Bread Tacos II

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2009
My first time of making fry bread and it turned out great! I had to add about 1 extra cup of flour all together for it to be the right consistency. I wanted to mention that I took the suggestion of making a hole in the middle for the bread to cook evenly, and on the last one I just made the indentation. The one without the hole turned out the best I felt so I'll just do that when I make these again. I really surprised my husband with these last night!

Honey-Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
These were fast to put together and very tasty! I used splenda in place of the sugar and only had enough honey to make half a batch. I ended up with 20 good sized cookies!

Chicken Chilaquiles

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
Made this tonight for supper and got rave reviews from my husband, he;s already requested that we have it again! I used fat free sour cream and had 4 blend mexican cheese so used that and had canned corn so used that rather than frozen. Instead of layering the different items I mixed everything together including 2/3 of the cheese, then put it all into the baking dish and sprinked the rest of the cheese on top along with some sliced up black olives. Thank you for a very good, quick and easy recipe that we will be fixing often. This would be a good dish to fix up ahead of time for a pot luck!

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
These are so easy to put together. I did cut back a little on the butter using 1 1/2 sticks instead of 2 and I used sugar free chocolate chips and the splenda brown sugar blend, my husband and I both enjoyed them.

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
Very good! I took anothers suggestion and added a little franks redhot and dijon and also doubled the onion. I made it up earlier in the day then later just had to pop it into the oven. My husband really did enjoy them and went back for a second big helping. I used fat free sour cream and sharp cheddar cheese.

Green Pepper Tomato Salad

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
This was a great base to start with to use up veggies I had on hand. I did not have any green pepper but used 1/2 a red and 1/2 a yellow along with 2 roma tomatoes and 1 stalk broccoli, sliced up 12 black olives and used the last bit of celery. My husband does not like raw onion so omitted that but added 1/2 t. onion powder. I also added 1 T. olive oil and 1 T. grapeseed oil to the dressing and added some bowtie pasta to really dress it up. I used splenda in place of the sugar. You can change this in so many ways, just depends on what you have on hand that you want to use up. A very fresh, tasty and healty side dish!

Grandma's Old Fashioned Tea Cakes

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
These turned out really well. I made them at work so did not have real butter and then I found out there was no nutmeg so I substituted cinnamon. Next time I will use nutmeg! I mixed up the dough, doubling the recipe, and put it in the cooler til the next day. I did not roll out the dough, I used a small scooper and then just flattened out the ball of dough on the pan with my palm (wearing plastic gloves) they baked up well and everyone enjoyed them. Nice chewy cookie when you want something not so rich.

Bill Clinton's Lemon Chess Pie

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
I made this for Mothers Day and it turned out lovely. I bought 2 frozen pie crusts, not deep dish! I took the suggestion and used half & half instead of milk and used 1/2 cup of lemon juice instead of 1/4. I took the lazy way out and rather than zest lemons I bought lemon peel from the spice isle, I didn't have a lot of time since I had to bake it Saturday after work. I used splenda instead of sugar. Let it cook and then in the fridge overnight and took it to my mother-in-law for dinner. Everyone loved it and it cut beautifully. Since I did 2 pies it only took 35 minutes in the oven. I'll be sure and make this again!

Josh's Four-Way Chili

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
Made this tonight and it smelled so good cooking! I halfed the recipe using 1 /2 lb hamberger and 1/2 lb sausage. I didn't have a green pepper but used 1/2 a red and a half of a yellow and a orange and half a red onion. I didn't bother to puree the stewed tomatoes and the can of red beans I bought was in a spicy tomato sauce so with all that I found the liquid amount was just right, I also added just a dash of cayanne pepper. The reason I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because we felt the pasta took away from it. My husband loved the chili and got a second bowl but that time he didn't bother with the pasta at all. I usually like rice with my chili and will use it to have with this. After I cooked it all up I covered the pot and put it in the oven to simmer at around 260 for a good 3 hours which I think really helped bring it all together. Then just had to cook the pasta right before supper.

Banana Cake III

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
This turned out very well. I use splenda instead of sugar and did not add any nuts. I used a 9x13 pan and only made half the amount of frosting and it was plenty. I also added about 1/2 of a small banana to the frosting and my husband said the frosting was great! I also used splenda for the frosting and only needed about 1 1/4 cups to sweeten it. I think the cake would also be good without any frosting.

Melting Moments II

Reviewed: May 1, 2009
I made these today at the jail, the recipe sounded so interesting with so few ingredients! I doubled it and didn't get anywhere near the number of cookies it said I'd get! Don't have real butter to use at work so margarine had to do and I added some vanilla. I baked 2 pans, first one I baked right away without chilling, second pan I chilled first, they both came out exactly the same! Instead of using flour when pressing down with the fork, I used granulated sugar, gave them a nice glisten. Very easy to make and next time I'm thinking of melting chocolate and drizzling a bit on top.

Ricotta Pie (Old Italian Recipe)

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
I only made half the recipe since it made so much! My husband loved it! I used splenda in place of the sugar and used pre-made pie crust. I also used the sugar free chocolate chips and chopped them up into smaller pieces before adding.

Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
These turned out nice and tender. Followed the recipe then was worried about them being to salty so when they were simmering I added more water and they turned out just fine. Also added some fresh mushrooms to the sauce. Will make these again!

No More Salty Easter Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
Will make again! My in-laws and husband loved this ham and I have gotten so many compliments! Husband was sad when all the ham was gone! He usually doesn't like leftovers and he couldn't get enough of this.

Pineapple Bread Souffle

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
This turned out very well in spite of me messing up a bit! I used a larger pan than needed so it was pretty thin but I realised my mistake when it was still baking so took it out sooner. I used splenda in place of sugar and the splenda brown sugar mix for the top. A good dish when you want to serve something out of the ordinary!

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
This was very yummy! I used splenda in place of the sugar and also the splenda brown sugar mix. I used 1 t. vanilla and added a dash of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. I found the topping to be the right amount for it and am glad I didn't double it like some have mentioned.

Special Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
I followed the recipe and found the filling to be to soupy for my taste. My husband who loves deviled eggs didn't care for them as much as other recipes I've made.

Shoe Peg Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
This turned out tasty, I used some fresh asperagas in place of the peas since I had some that needed to be used up, also used splenda in place of the sugar. A lot like 3-bean salad. Would go good for any type of picnic or bbq!
