Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2003
WOW! Yum yum yum yum! This was the best salad I ever made AND ever tasted! I loved it so much that I hope to make it often enough to never need to look at the recipe each time! The dressing is so good, too. I cut back the amount of sugar a little and it was still very sweet, but I have a sweet tooth, so that was good for me. This is going to become a signature salad for our family, I'm sure!!!

Peanut Butter Candy Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2004
Usually I make a new recipe once or twice. Not this one - I have made it and have been requested to make it over a dozen times! I recommend using natural peanut butter - the coarser consistency makes the peanut butter part more like a peanut butter cup - YUM!!!!!! Also, I only put in about 3 to 3.5 cups of sugar - it is just as sweet!

Betty Crocker's Easter Bunny Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2005
The creative aspect of this recipe is great and VERY easy to do. The cake mix itself is OK, but I HIGHLY recommend making your own cream cheese frosting rather than using the fluffly white frosting. Using a cream cheese frosting is much better for a carrot cake, otherwise it is just too sweet combined with the coconut flakes. This was a visual hit on Easter Sunday, but not much got eaten.

Easy Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2005
Very good recipe. I took the previous reviewer's suggestions and added 1/2 cup of beef broth (I used bouillon) and decreased the amount of sour cream. I also added about 1/2 tsp of chili pepper and used leftover steak tips (yum) instead. My hubby LOVED it and it had just the right spice (we love spicy).

Mom's Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2005
Sooooo good. Perfect all around. I will use this to frost all cakes from now on. Not overly sweet with a smooth creamy texture. Thanks for the recipe!

Zucchini Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2005
This was great. My 2 year old son who hates squash ate some of it - and that is a lot! I actually made two pies by doubling the recipe and used both shredded zucchini and carrots - a very colorful arrangement! I also used gruyere and cheddar (2:1) and it was very tasty!

Aunt Carol's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2005
I made this pie twice in less than 7 days - and had never made an apple pie before, EVER! I got RAVE reviews of it, and even managed to forget the butter the second time and it still was perfect (and lower in fat!). I use either frozen or boxed crusts and it makes for a very quick and easy dessert. A real keeper! Don't forget the ice cream!

Chicken with Garlic, Basil, and Parsley

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2005
This was easy and good. I soaked the chicken in vinegar for about 30 minutes (longer is better, though) before preparing in the pan. It made them juicier. I also did what others suggested and added about 1/2 cup of shredded mozz during the last 15 minutes. That made the dish.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2005
This was OK. I think I need a bigger crock pot - a 5 1/2 lb pot roast took up almost the whole thing (I think my cooker is 5 qt). The pot roast should really be flipped half way because mine was well done on top and not done enough on the bottom.

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2005
Very tasty and creamy. I omitted the bacon for some vegetarian friends. I will make them with bacon next time for me!

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2005
The flavor was great, but they came out more chewy than moist. I will definitely try again, but my inital attempt wasn't the best.

Sesame Asparagus

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
This at least gave me another idea for an ingredient to add to our common asparagus. I am a sesame lover and I'm surprised I hadn't thought of this on my own. I found it easiest to dry-toast the seeds in a non stick saute pan, and letting them cool for about 5 minutes before adding butter and garlic. This way the butter melts easily on the still warm seeds and you can allow it to stand for a few minutes while your asparagus is cooking. Hubby liked it, I loved it AND my 2 year old loved the 'sesame sticks'.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2005
EXCELLENT. I hadn't ever made chili before and no one believed me when they tasted this. It tastes like a recipe perfected after years of making chili.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2006
The time on this recipe is certainly true! I had dinner prepped and on the table in 20 minutes flat - that included some last minute thawing of my Tilapia! Will definitely be keeping this one!

Awesome Roast Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2006
It may have been what I did, but my pot roast came out tough and flavorless. We are on a low carb kick, so I did not cook any potatoes with the roast, which I will never do again. Pot Roast and potatoes go hand in hand. I will also add minced garlic and some other spices next time to give it more flavor. In all, a good recipe, but needs spice.
