Candy Bar Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
When I give tea parties, I love to make several items and give small tastes. I chose to make this recipe as one of my desserts. It was deliciously different.

Sausage Cheese Balls

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
These are really good but very different from the sausage balls I usually make at holidays. Amazingly, the onion, celery, and garlic powder totally change the flavor. I wish these had a different name so that people wouldn't expect the traditional sausage ball. I needed to cut the cooking time just a little. They tended to drain out the cheese and get a crispy bottom if left even a bit too long.

Tropical Sandwich

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
A perfect little sandwich for a tea party. I served mine open faced. The bananas would need to be spritzed with pineapple juice to keep them from turning dark, especially if made very far in advance.

Ham and Egg Salad Sandwich Spread

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
This is the best ham salad I have ever eaten. I say that because I don't particularly care for ham salad yet this was good. I used hamburger dills only because I didn't have any dill pickle relish. I really liked the mayo/Dijon dressing.

Summer Time Cucumber Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
A perfect cucumber sandwich! I used my homemade wheat bread rather than rye.

Pineapple and Cream Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
Since I am of that "vintage age," this recipe did bring back wonderful memories as the submitter suggested. An easy to make cheese ball that requires minimum ingredients. Always a hit for a delicious appetizer.

Pepperoni Cheese Balls

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
A great little appetizer that has very nice presentation. I used a small cookie scoop and made lots of little balls rather than just 12 as the recipe states. Each one was perfect to place on a Ritz cracker. I put a toothpick in each one to make picking up easier.

Butter Bean Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
This soup was delicious! I couldn't bring myself to use canned lima beans, though. I began cooking my frozen baby limas in water seasoned with Better than Bouillon and after about 7 minutes added the potatoes and onions. At the end, I drained the vegetables and saved all the broth. Sure was glad I did because in order for it to be soup, I ended up returning ALL the broth to the mixture. I was afraid to add the cumin but did. It gave it a very nice flavor. I did omit the coriander because I was out. One of the guests I served this to wanted the recipe, so that says much about how it turned out.

1-Dish Pepperoni Cheese Pizza Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
I just didn't trust the step of mixing the crust in the pan. I didn't want it to stick to my black skillet, so I mixed it in a bowl prior to shaping it in the pan. Like others, I put the crust in a cold oven, set the temp (yes, it works), and baked it for 10 minutes before adding the other ingredients. Next time, I will bake it for 15 minutes. Now, for the changes: I used 1 pkg. of RapidRise Yeast and 2 1/4 tsp. instant yeast. It's what I had. I also sliced up eight 1-oz. mozzarella sticks because that's what I had, but I didn't need 8 and used less. Like others, I think you could easily get by with 1 1/2 cups grated cheese. This really is a very easy pizza to make and tasted ok to me (but I'm not a pizza connoisseur).

Quick and Easy Mexican Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2013
I made this dish "quicker and easier" by omitting the step of browning the chicken in a skillet. I also marinated the chicken in Cajun Seasoning before I decided to make this, so I omitted the cumin. I added the cheese at the end rather than cooking it the entire time. My husband really liked the flavor of this chicken dish and I found it to be extremely easy, so I will definitely make it again.

Pineapple Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2013
I used 1/2 cup sugar and that was too much. I also should have mixed the flour and sugar in with the pineapple rather than just pouring it over the top. I believe that would have solved the problem of too much juice in the bottom of the casserole. I also think there was too much cheese on top. I omitted the saltines and butter as a personal preference. I like pineapple casserole but prefer a different recipe from this one.

Connie's Sweet and Sour Christmas Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2013
I used Italian breadcrumbs rather than just the bread, and I added garlic powder to the meatballs. Certainly, you could add whatever you like in your meatballs. I like the sauce, and especially appreciate that it calls for ingredients I keep on hand.

Lemon Berry Tartlets

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2013
I've been looking for something to do with my one sheet of puff pastry, and this was perfect! The technique works great although I did have to let my dough thaw longer than 2-3 minutes to get it to open up. I made these lemon berry tartlets for an early Valentine dessert, and they looked very elegant. Can't wait to try it again using pudding or mousse or even flavored whipping cream.

Light Pimento Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2013
I used store-bought pimiento cheese spread to make this. I would suggest you buy the best tasting pimiento cheese the store has to offer. I also put it on my homemade Amish White Bread. Personally, I would have given it 3 stars because the pickle relish seemed to overpower it. My husband, on the other hand, actually liked it. He said it was tangy and more flavorful than regular pimiento cheese.

Easy and Delicious Crusty Popovers

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
This is my first time making popovers. While they did fall (no, I didn't open the oven door), they still tasted like the ones I've eaten elsewhere. I made some strawberry butter for them and enjoyed them for breakfast.

Signature Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
You just can't get any easier than 5 simple ingredients. This pie is too good and too easy for it to just be made at Thanksgiving. It's an any night dessert!

Company Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
I didn't care for the cinnamon in this recipe. My gut told me to take it out and add garlic powder and Italian Seasoning, and I will next time. I also ended up using double the tomato sauce. I baked it covered with foil to keep it from drying out too much. This is actually a poor man's lasagna recipe, and one I will make again with my changes.

Bear's Spinach Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
I wanted spinach balls tonight. I had seen this recipe and thought it would be similar, especially if I made them as mini muffins rather than regular size. I'm glad I did. I really think this recipe could benefit from extra herbs like sage, thyme, and basil. I also wish it had had an amount for the salt. I added salt, but not enough. I enjoyed these tonight as a side but in the future will use my personal spinach ball recipe over this one.

Iced Mocha Cola

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
I used Diet Coke since it's my cola of choice. I also mixed the coffee into the half and half because I didn't think it would mix well otherwise. When the Coke meets the coffee and half and half, it puts on a big fizz show. Might be fun for a few minutes, but the taste just isn't something I care to experience again.

So simple to make, and bonus points go to this recipe because I had everything in my pantry to make it.
