Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2013
Excellent, easy recipe! I was at first worried, since it seemed too easy...but it turned out wonderful! I followed the recipe, except I added chocolate chips to the pie crust before pouring in the pie mixture. It was awesome!!

Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2013
Great Recipe! Easy, no-fuss dinner. All I had was condensed Golden Mushroom soup, so I used that instead of the cream of chicken. Also, I had no au jus mix, so I put a few dashes of Worcestishire Sauce, onion powder and diced onions/mushroms. Served with mashed potatoes and peas/carrots. Turn out great. Hubby and baby ate it all! :-)

Easy and Quick Cream Cheese Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2013
Great recipe!...Followed recipe exactly, except I used light cream cheese and whipped in the kitchenaid blender. The potatoes were creamy and just the right consistency!

Doubletree Hotel's Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
I think these dont taste EXACTLY like to Double Tree Cookies, but they are still very delicious! I've made these twice so far. The 1st time I followed the recipe exactly and they were excellent, but a little on the thin side. The second time I made changes based on recommendations by reviewer CSANDST1. They turned out perfect consistency-wise, but the taste was a little better per recipe. Either way, you get a delicious cookie and I'll be making these for a long time! :-)

Shrimp and Okra Gumbo

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
This was great. I personally am not an okra fan, but my husband is and was begging for some gumbo. I decided to make this recipe and was pleasantly surprised. I followed the recipe, except I used zucchini instead of celery, since it was all I had. I also used about 3 cups of water and 3 cups of chicken broth (6 cups total, not 12!) I served with a little brown rice and butter biscuits! A+ !!

Zucchini Cornbread Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2011
Great Recipe! Defintely "sweat out" the zucchini a bit by adding some salt and letting it sit in a colander. Then, squeeze out the excess with a paper towel. Dont worry if you dont get every ounce of fluid out...just reduce the amount of liquid(usually milk or water) in your corn muffin mix recipe a bit. I followed the recipe except I added some diced jalapeno and did not top with cheese (only on the inside). Turned out great and disappeared quickly.

Easy, Cheesy Zucchini Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
This is a good, base recipe. To make it 5 stars: Cook turkey with onions, add garlic, pepper, paprika and oregano. Then, add about 1/2 of the spaghetti sauce until well heated. Then, pour mix onto the zucchini. I topped with black beans (no corn) and a few dices of jalapeno...Topped with cheddar and it was much better!

Baked Scallops

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
Excellent, simple recipe. Followed recipe exactly, except I dredged the scallops in butter and then the bread crumbs (i used Panko). Served with WW penne pasta and a side salad. :)

Easy Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2011
I dont know why, but this did not turn out as great as I expected it...I lightly browned it and placed in aluminum foil, but other than that I followed the recipe exactly. It was tougher than we like and lacked a little flavor (other than sweet). While I think the ingredients were great, I think the cooking method was probably not ideal, especially since my roast was a bit larger. Next time, I plan to do this in the slow cooker instead, that way the flavors meld better and the meat is more tender.

Red Pepper-Salmon Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
Great recipe...I was a little skeptical as I was making it, as it didnt taste like much on its own. However, once it thickened and was tossed with pasta and Salmon, it was AWESOME. I tweaked it a bit for our taste, such as adding a bit of salt and pepper, and a bit more garlic. NOTICE: The recipe makes enough sauce to barely cover salmon and lightly coat the pasta. If you like extra sauce, double the recipe! Im going to try to make a large batch and see if it will freeze well...

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
I love this recipe! Its a perfect side dish to pretty much any meat dish. I've made it about four times now : w/ Steak, Chicken, even Salmon. Despite my explanation that its a kind of pasta, my husband tells me every time I make it how he likes that "weird rice". :-)

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
Best Banana Bread. Ever. My husband said it was the same caliber as his grandmother's (or better). I made some slight changes to lower the calories a bit (although it did not taste "healthy" at all, if you know what I mean). 1) I used 1/2 WW flour and 1/2 all purpose. 2) Used about 1 cup less sugar 3) 1/2 butter & 1/2 Margarine 4)More cinnamon than called for and 5) threw in choco chips/walnuts. AWESOME!

The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
These were perfect! I had never made lemon bars before, but was having a mad craving for some...so I tried this recipe. I made exactly as stated, except I only had an 8x8 pan, but it didnt affect the taste or texture at al. Great recipe! :)

California Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
This was delicious! I followed the recipe exactly, except I used french bread (all I had) and roasted the veggies in the oven (instead of grilling)after tossing with a little olive oil. Turned out great!

Triple Berry Crisp

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
This tasted great and was really easy to make! The only thing I changed was that I used only fresh blueberries and raspberries(it was all I had) and used a lot less butter than the recipe calls for (3/4 cup instead of 1 1/2 cup). I also used a little extra cinnamon...I served it warm out of the oven with vanilla ice cream.Delicious!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
I scaled back this recipe to 1 dozen, but did not change any of the ingredients...I thought these were "OK"...The texture turned out to be cake-like, and if that's your preference, then use this recipe! However, I also felt it lacked something.. I really prefer choco chip cookies to be chewy, w/ slightly crisp edges, and with a more complex, rich flavor...

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
These were great! I modified it just a bit to suit our tastes: Used 1/2 all purpose and 1/2 w.w. flour and sprinkled in cinnamon and ground flaxseed...I made a batch with bananas and pecans and ate them with clover honey...My husband said they were the BEST pancakes he EVER had!

Raspberry Cream Cheese Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
This was a hit. I totally forgot to use eggs and it was still great. I imagine the eggs would have made them a little easier to handle, as they were a bit gooey, but no one complained! My husband loved them and they disappeared when I took the rest to work. I did, however, reduce the amount of sugar a bit, and only used about 1/2 a jar of jam. Still plenty sweet. I also mixed in cinnamon into the oats mixture and splash of lemon extract into the raspberry makes the flavors POP! :)

Apple Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
I thought that the original recipe is really good, but with my slight alterations, it made it a FIVE: In addition to putting cinammon and apple pie spice in the batter itself I also added about 1 cup of apple sauce (no added sugar kind) for extra moistness. Then, I made a blend of cinnamon, apple pie spice, and pecans (instead of walnuts) and set aside. Once I poured half of the batter into a bundt pan, I sprinkled the cinnamon/pecan mixture over the batter, then poured the rest of the batter over it. Once the cake was done and cooled, I flipped it out and dusted with powdered sugar. The result was a DELICIOUSLY most cake with a sweet/cinnamon/pecan swirl in the center!! Next time, I will likely use more apple pie filling, probably about 1/2 a can more.

Banana Nut Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
Delicious. I followed the directions exactly, except I added some cinammon, and used 1/2 cup of applesauce and 1/2 of the vegetable oil called for. I also added a handful of chocolate chips (cant help it, I love bananas and chocolate!). Once the muffins were done, I let them cool until I could handle them and placed them in an air-tight container. They have remained moist and tasty, and I will likely make these again. Next time, I may try 1/2 ww flour and 1/2 white.
