This was fantastic! I used strawberry perserves and 16 oz of cool whip. I filled waffle cones and then froze. Delicious and very summer-y!

Teri's Dinner in a Pumpkin

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
Very good and festive! Mixed reviews from my five kids, but I absolutely LOVED the pumpkin mixed with the meat/rice mixture. We used a soy "meat" because we're veggies. It made a ton!

Sweet and Sour Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
I loved this salad, though I did make some changes. I used only 1/4 cup oil and the rest water. I used 1/3 cup splenda instead of sugar and I added ginger and garlic powder to add some flavor. I left out the butter altogether. I substituted almonds for walnuts. I used cooked broccoli. It was so flavorful and yummy!

Venice High School Cherry Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
These cookies were awesome. I added mini chocolate chips instead of the nuts. The dough was a little crumbly, but the baked cookies weren't. I baked mine for only 12 minutes and they came out perfectly. My kids said they were the best cookies ever!

Pure comfort food!! My family and I loved this! I doubled all the proportions and used fat-free cream cheese, but kept everything else the same.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs (Suan T'ien Niu Jou Po Lo La Tzu)

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
Soooooo delicious! I'm a vegetarian so I used soy "meatballs." I doubled the sauce and added a bunch more veggies. The sauce was the perfect combination of sweet and sour. This was quick and easy to make and yummy to eat. Thanks for the great recipe!

Chocolate Chip Meringue Drops

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
The texture and taste are fabulous!! Very airy, chocolatey. I did have to double the recipe because 2 egg whites doesn't make very many cookies. I used mini chocolate chips. Thank you for the great recipe!

Pumpkin Pie Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2011
I lightened this recipe by using heart healthy bisquick and fat-fee evaporated milk. I had to double the recipe because of my large family and it was still done at about 4 hours. So delicious! My kids LOVED it!

Fantastic! I used whole wheat flour and reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup to make it healthier. My kids said it tasted just like pumpkin pie. We eat this every Halloween. :)

Unbelievably good! I made a few changes: used 2 cups whole wheat flour, 1 cup white flour, used 1 1/2 cups of maple syrup instead of sugar, used 3 1/2 fresh peaches. The bread was tender, moist, and very flavorful. Thank you for this great recipe!

Volcano Pancake

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
I used half whole wheat flour and half white flour to make it a little healthier. Three of my kids loved it and two wouldn't touch it. I thought it was fantastic and tasted like french toast. Thank you for the recipe!

Ukrainian Red Borscht Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
This was great, but I did make a few changes. I shredded the potatoes and carrots, and left out the sausage. I also added dill and caraway seeds. Even my cabbage-hating son liked it.

This is FANTASTIC! The only change I made was I used about a cup of salsa. I served it with homemade guacamole and everyone raved. I will make this on a regular basis!

Southwest-Style Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
Made per the recipe, these were bland. I think they will be much better if I had roasted poblano peppers or at least some jalapenos. I dipped them in a combination of salsa and sour cream. This is definitely a versitile recipe.

Mexican Lasagna Chip Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
SO GOOD!! And easy! I used soy crumbles instead of meat, but other than that, I didn't change anything. I don't know why it's called lasagna either, but so delicious. I will make frequently.

Banana Oatmeal Cookie

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
These were fantastic!!! I also would not call them "cookies" but maybe muffin tops is more accurate. I made a few changes that made them taste even better. I used half margarine and half peanut butter instead of shortening. I used whole wheat flour and added about 1/4 of a cup of vanilla soymilk to compensate for the whole wheat. Finally, I used 3/4 of a cup of brown sugar instead of white sugar. They were moist, not crumbly, and delicious!!
