Chocolate Pear Spice Cake

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
This is the first time I have ever rated a recipe. This cake is just fantastic. I made it exactly as the recipe indicated except I used milk chocolate chips on the top instead of shaved chocolate. The cake was light yet moist and just delicious. I have a feeling it will be even better tomorrow!

Aunt Dorothy's Marinated Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
This was very tasty and simple to make. I didn't have tomato soup, so I substituted French dressing and omitted the oil. Turned out great!

Easy Spicy Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
This was easy and delicious. I browned the chicken and cut up in pieces. Used lite sour cream as suggested and low fat soups and brown rice. I sprinkled a little grated cheddar cheese over top. Would probably add some tortille chips on top next time as it could stand some crunch.

Gobble Up Granola Snacks

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
These are delicious. I added craisins and a few chocolate chips. I used regular oats rather than quick and the consistency seemed fine to me. I left out the brown sugar altogether and didn't miss it.

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
This was delicious and easy. I left out the raisins and craisins so that everyone could use their favorite or none at all.

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2009
Very easy and very tasty. I used fresh basil instead of oregano. I cooked on the grill rather than in the oven. Very good!

Sweet Potato Potato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
This was delicious and easy. I doubled for larger batch except for eggs. I used 1/2 dijon mustard for extra zing and topped with small heirloom tomatoes.

Oven Beef Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
This was so tasty and easy. I used one can of beef consomme and 1/2 package of onion soup mix, about two cups water and two bay leaves. I put in a COVERED dutch oven as I let it cook for about 6 hours while I was gone and was afraid of drying out since I couldn't stir it.

Chocolate Applesauce Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
I added a tsp. of vanilla, replaced a cup of the sugar with Sugar Twin and added some cinnamon in the topping. I made a dozen regular size cupcakes and 24 mini-cupcakes. Only took about 20 minutes to bake. Very yummy!

Sweet Potato Minestrone

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
This is easy and delicious. It also does not take long to cook once you have the chopping done. My husband said he could smell the wonderful flavor from the garage.

Apple Lettuce Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
This was very tasty and easy. I used honey crisp and granny smith apples. Also added low fat feta cheese to cut the sweet and a few dried cranberries for variety and to look pretty for the holidays. Great recipe!

Jenn's Out Of This World Spaghetti and Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
This was excellent. Very flavorful and easy. I also added small chunks of Italian sausage to the sauce. I let it chill and then removed as much fat as possible. This got high ratings from the family.

Red Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
This was pretty flavorful and attractive with the red potato skins. Mine was a little flat so next time I will use most salt when cooking the potatoes.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
This was very good although it became a little too mushy. I overcooked it I think. Next time I will reduce cooking time.

Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
This was surprisingly good. The pumpkin does give a more creamy texture without giving the dish a pumpkin taste. I did add additional cumin, garlic salt and chili powder, tomatoes with green chiles and a can of black beans. I sauteed peppers and onions and browned the ground turkey and put all in the crockpot for the day on low. It was delicious!

Baked Tortilla Chips

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
These are delicious and easy. I used whole wheat tortillas. Made a stack of tortillas and cut in triangles. Put in a plastic bag and added olive oil and lime juice. Shake around and then lay in single layer on cookie sheet. Sprinkle with chili powder and seasoned salt. Make sure to brown enough to be crunchy without burning. These even stay crunchy when stored in a plastic bag.

Chicken and Fresh Tomato Slow Cooker Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
This was delicious and very easy. I used southern style hash browns and canned petite tomatoes to make a little easier. I didn't have tomato sauce on hand so I used a can of tomato soup. I sprinkled a little parmesan cheese on the top when serving. It tasted even better the next day.

Chicken in a Pot

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
This is very delicious. I used the sauce ingredients as listed, but only used two large chicken breasts. The amount of sauce was just right. I did pound the chicken breasts to make them cook more evenly and used crushed garlic melba toasts in place of the bread crumbs. Sprinkled a little parmesan cheese over the top. Excellent recipe!

Berry Crisp

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
This is very yummy. I put old fashioned oats in the food processor for a few seconds since I did not have quick-cooking variety. I also substituted brown rice flour to accommodate a gluten free diet. It was delicious although the filling was a little soupy when warm from the oven.
