Twenty Four Hour Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
Thank you, Tami for submitting this. I left my family recipe at home so I checked here - I'm sure that there are other names for it but I've always known it as 24 Hour Salad. However, mine is a bit different, I melt the marshmallows in the egg mix because it helps thicken the salad overall and many people are not fond of the texture of marshmallows. I added a bit more than it calls for as I go by taste. No poppy seeds in mine! I also used a bit more whipping cream as well (maybe a quarter cup extra). Be extra careful when folding in the whipped cream to the rest of it or it can become sloppy. This is a hit every time.

Slow Cooker Spicy Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2008
This was excellent! Instead of water, I used straight low sodium chicken broth and sliced low sodium smoked sausage in place of the ham and bacon.

Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
This is a very good marinade. I use Bragg's all purpose soy subsitute as it's extremely low in sodium. Sesame oil is excellent with this. I also cook my pork tenderloin only about 15 minutes and then remove it from the oven and wrap it in foil then let it sit about 10 min. It keeps the extra moisture in as well as completes the cooking process.

Mock Angel Food Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
I made this as a sheet cake and it came out of the pan just fine. I rolled it, using a lemon filling from allrecipes and it was an absolute hit. However, the rolled cake MUST sit for at least 6 hours so the cake absorbs the filling's moisture - it IS a dense cake and will be chewy if you cut into it too soon.

Boiled Bagels

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
Excellent recipe! These guys expand in the simmering water so be careful just how many you put into the pot. At one poster's suggestion, I used molasses in the water and they all turned out just fine. I brushed them with an egg wash and put sesame seeds on top. Very, very good!

Blueberry Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
I made these yesterday and they are all gone! 6 kids here...I added a tablespoon or so of buttermilk to the crumb mix as I thought it was a little too dry. I'm sure water or milk will do if you don't have the buttermilk. I also used thawed frozen blueberries. An excellent dessert!

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
From experience, all the best brownies I have ever made were done in a gas oven. No idea why but they always came out more moist. This was the case for me as I am using electric. I also used plain cocoa and they did not turn out anything like I am used to. I usually use Dutch Processed cocoa which is far superior and darker in texture (and cheaper!). I agree about using less flour as stated by several reviewers.

The Best Thai Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
A most excellent recipe! It really needs the whole tablespoon of tabasco (if not more) for the extra kick. I use lite coconut milk and crunchy peanut butter. I also use more cilantro than it calls for. This is quite thick. You just need to add more water (or coconut milk) to thin it.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
I made this for my husband who loves anything and everything chili. While he enjoyed it, he just gave it 3 stars. Won't be making it again but I had fun.

Bacon Turnip Mash

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
You've turned a lifelong turnip hater to one that now loves them! I made this for a group of friends, following the recipe to a T and it was an absolute HIT! Thank you! My friend gave me some massive turnips to take home and I made this again: only because my husband and I are health conscious, I omitted the salt, used turkey bacon (Oscar Mayer) and fried it in some extra virgin Olive oil and to that I added a large pinch of black pepper and garlic. It was equally delicious!

Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
I've been making these for years, very popular. Only I use Westfalian ham (prosicutto works, too) as there is much less fat plus I shorten the baking time or the ham dries out too quickly. I've also had success using turkey bacon. These are a hit every time!

Strawberry Cream Parfaits with Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2009
This was a hit but two of my kids didn't like the coconut so next time I'm going to add either ginger snaps, oreo cookie or even chocolate chips. White chocolate and/or chopped nuts would work great, too.

Deluxe Chocolate Marshmallow Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
Very good! My marshmallows were 'peeling' away from the cake part when I melted them and tried to spread it so I just poured the melted chocolate on top and swirled it around. Worked out fine.

Bagel and Cheese Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
A-one! I followed this the way it was written (well, I did put in extra bacon and eggs) and it was very good! Still good the next day as well!Not bland in the least. I might want to try variations another time but this was very successful! Thank you!

Cornflake Clusters

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
These are wonderful - unfortunatley, my kids don't like coconut or most nuts (it's sad isn't it?) and I didn't have Corn Flakes but that didn't stop me. I had Vector cereal and toasted some sesame seeds and wheat germ. They tasted just like the sesame snaps in the stores! If I make them for myself I'll do the same again and add chopped peanuts. It was a hit, thanks!

Baked Spaghetti Squash with Beef and Veggies

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
I have made this a number of times and we think it's wonderful. I'd like to emphasize to those that think this dish is just OK - this is one of the kinds of casseroles that taste even BETTER the next day after the flavours have really melded. I strongly suggest you give it another try. I have added sliced portobella mushrooms and jalapeno to this for some extra kick. This is an absolute keeper!

Chocolate Wafer Roll

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
My Mom also made this every Christmas for many years. It has never fallen apart. It could be that some people do not whip their whipping cream enough. we only put in about a tablespoon of regular sugar to the whipping cream near the end. It has to sit for at least 5 hours so the wafers pick up the wetness from the whipped cream and fatten up. Also, we have always used THIN wafers (from Nabisco0 and not Oreos. It's very cakelike. A winner every time.

Megan's Granola

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
Very versatile. Not sure if anyone has written this but adding sesame seeds gives it a fantastic flavour! I toasted mine with the other nuts (added pumpkin seeds too). I only make half the recipe and use more pure maple syrup than honey and it fills a cookie sheet.

Quick Nariyal Burfi (Indian Coconut Fudge)

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
Interesting recipe. I used unsweetened coconut and it soaked up all the milk - is that normal? I ended up giving it less time in the microwave due to that. The bars were a little on the dry side but more than sweet enough. Also, I didn't want to waste the remaining half can of milk so I added unsweetened cocoa powder to it (about 1 1/2 T.) then drizzled it on top of the bars which gave it more of an Almond Joy flavour as I didn't use the cardamom. Very chewy, but right tasty!
