Spring Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
I found this recipe one day when the grapes I bought at the market turned out to be too sour for the kids to eat and too expensive to throw out. The family was reluctant after seeing the ingredients, but were pleasantly surprised. What a wonderful way to get fresh and healthy vegtables and fruit into my family. I used two cups of green grapes instead of one each of the red and green. I also used low fat turkey bacon. Otherwise followed exactly.

Strawberry Angel Food Dessert

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
After using this web site for about 2 years, I believe this is my favorite recipe thus far. I used the suggestions for homemade glaze and mixed of homemade glaze with some left over jelly/jam flavors that the kids weren't eating. I didn't have the full amount of strawberries recommended but it still came out great and easy. Nice alternative to strawberry shortcake.

Cherry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
My family definitely prefers this no egg no bake version. My mother has been making this for over 30 years and has come out perfect everytime. No changes. My teenage son loves it and has never found any cheesecake that beats it.

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
Great! Love fresh cilantro. Added a cut up tomato. Too much dressing. Will cut oil & vinegar in half next time. Seemed like a lot of salt so cut to 2 1/2 t. There is so much flavor could probably put even less salt and be ok. Serves about 12.

Golden State Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2011
Made this multiple times & always comes out great. I use whole wheat flour and half the salt. I love eliminating processed foods and cooking from scratch. It's easier than I anticipated.

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2011
Perfect! Just as I remember as a kid. Boiled 2 minutes as suggested by others. Used no salt peanut butter (trying to use up). Even used skim milk because that's what we keep in the house. Was looking for something where I didn't have to turn on oven in the summer. Such simple ingredients with spectacular results.

Luscious Turkey Bacon Refried Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
Used smoked bacon that our neighbor makes. Had to cook longer than stated to reduce fluid, next time I will add less chicken broth. Instead of using potato masher, I put the whole mixture in food processor. Flavor and texture excellant. Agree, may never buy canned beans again.
