Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
WOW!!! I cannot stop eating this - and since I have to bring it to a party tonight - that's a bad thing! The chips are just like crunchy crispy cinnamon toast and the salsa is amazing! It is a little on the sweet side, but I used 50% sugar preserves, so it wasn't a problem for me. Too easy - a bit of chopping and mixing is well worth this result! Thank you thank you thank you! I will make this frequently!

Korean Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
Awesome salad! Very refreshing on a hot day. I used small zucchini since my husband doesn't groove on cukes, and I toasted my seeds in a dry pan rather than use oil, but otherwise, followed the recipe exactly. This is going to be one of my go-to recipes at the height of zucchini season when I'm tearing my hair out trying to figure out what to do with the little buggers!

Swedish Klimp

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
This is very tasty and couldn't be much simpler! I added finely minced scallions (the green part only) and made them smaller than called for. Yum!

Roasted Chickpeas

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
Thank goodness these aren't bad for me!! I've made three batches in the last three days - each time changing it up a little. I think my favorite so far is a combo of onion and garlic powders, a little smoked paprika and kosher salt. I mixed up the cooking times and temps as per some of the other reviews and what worked best for me was 365 for the first 30 minutes, then spray with cooking spray, add your seasonings, toss and roast further at 425 for 15-20 minutes. Be sure to check and stir if necessary every 5 minutes or so during the final stage to prevent burning and keep them all evenly cooked. SOOOOOOOOO good!

Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2007
I am certainly not what you'd call a baker... and despite that - these are terrific! I used butter and a higher ratio of brown to white sugar as some reviewers suggested. Thanks so mush for sharing this - it's a keeper!!!

Tuna Dumplings

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2007
This recipe is great as written, but really awesome if tweaked alittle! I bake the filled crescents until crispy and then either pour the sauce over and bake for a bit more or just use it as a dipping sauce. I also add a bit of sweet relish to the filling and some dried dill and onion powder to the sauce! A terrific easy dinner - thanks for sharing!!!

Zucchini Tomato Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2006
As written, definayely four - with a few minor changes 5+++! I sauteed the onion until deep golden brown, (we LOVELOVELOVE carmelized onions) plus sauteed the zucchini a little - it's crunchy otherwise. I also added more cheese than was called for. The "impossible pies" from the back of the box call for 2/3 c mix, 3/4 c milk and 2 eggs - so that's the topping that I used. I've made this 1000 times with 1000 different fillings - any cheese wotrks, most any veggie in most any combo. It's also good with chopped cooked meats! This is a terrific basic "starter". Thanks!

Chinese Chicken Salad III

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2006
My family loved this! As written I gave it four - with a few changes - it's 10!!! I put a few tbs. of hoisin sauce on cut up strips of boneless breast, tossed to coat, covered tightly in foil and baked for 40 mins at 350. It gives the chicken such terrific flavor!! I also added water chestnuts, julienned jicama and sliced mushrooms to the salad! The dressing was a little thick, so I added a couple tbs of water to thin. In the end - both my finicky eaters rated it a 9 out of 10! Thanks for sharing this one.

Sweet and Sour Zucchini Salad

Reviewed: May 26, 2006
Thought the soup mix would be a little weird - but it's really yummy! I added scallions and left out the celery, but followed everything else exactly! My 11 yr old daughter ate a bowlful and my zucchini-hating husband even liked it! Am going to make to bring to a picnic this weekend, only I'm going to play a little and add garlic and some crushed red pepper flakes.

Raspberry Oat Bars

Reviewed: May 26, 2006
I am definately NOT a baker - and this was easy enough for me to whip together in about 5 minutes... and even better - it's delicious! I used sugar free (juice sweetened) seedless raspberry preserves. My only advice - hold back less than half of the mixture for the topping. And do let it cool completely before trying to cut. THANKS!

Glazed Nuts

Reviewed: May 14, 2006
I've made these twice - both times got raves from the family! The first time I made it as instructed, snd the second, I had to play. I used pecans, 2-3 T of dried orange peel and about 1 t of nutmeg (and of course, the brown sugar and egg white). YUM!!! This is one of those recipes that you can totally change to fit your family - add any combo of spices... awesome!

Korean BBQ Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2006
This is awesome!! If I could give it 10 stars I would! Use as a marinade, over noodles with or without veggies, hot or at room temp (like cold sesame noodles) or in a stir fry thickened with a little cornstarch!! Definately add the lemon juice - it adds a very nice tone. I usually add some sesame oil and garlic (either powder or minced) as well. YUM!

Cheesy Zucchini Casserole I

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2005
excellent! I too, changed just a few things - used stuffing mix (roasted garlic flavor), sauteed a couple of Vidalias to throw in, and used a mix of zucchini and yellow squash. My family will eat these if I press the issue - but you'd have never caught one of them saying, "I love zucchini" - until now!! Good job, submitter!!

Comforting Cube Steaks

Reviewed: May 24, 2005
In a preverse thought pattern, when I first read this recipe, I thought, "God, this sounds so bad I have to try it." And it was terrific! The meat came out so tender and the gravy had a slightly sweet taste (but not nearly as sweet as I was afraid it was going to be). I cooked it for about 2+ hours though to thicken the sauce. The second time I added a ton of thinly sliced vidalia onions - yum! One note - be careful of the salt... both the canned soup and the soup mix are loaded, so whatever spice mixture you use, have it be salt free.

Green Bean Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2005
I had a "salad tasting" dinner - we tried 5 new ones from this site and THIS was everyone's favorite - from my 10 year old daughter through my teenagers and finishing with my husband and very picky mother in law!!! I omitted the peas (I hate canned peas!) and added a small can of slivered water chestnuts - fabulous. Thanks Patsy - this will be a favorite for years to come in my house!!

Chinese Cabbage Salad II

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2005
This was a big hit!! I omitted the seeds and nuts (husband has a bad tooth!) and used cider vinegar - but it was terrific anyway. I thought my family would like it - and was very surprised when they loved it! Thanks for submitting Alexandria.

Carmel's Crunchy Pea Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2005
My 10 year old LOVED this - but then, she'll eat a chair if it has bacon wrapped around it! I'll make this again - I have other bacon lovers in mind who will go crazy!

Cherry Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2005
This just wasn't as great as I had hoped - I followed the recipe almost exactly (something I rarely do, except for using "ugli" tomatoes instead of cherries. It was a little bland - but I may make it again with a tweak or two.

Ooey Goey Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2003
Yum! And sooooooo easy! My husband and kids gobbled this up like it was their last day on earth. I'm dressing it up by using chocolate cake mix and topping it with vanilla ice cream and a homemade hot fudge sauce for a dinner party tonight! One note - mine took longer to bake than the recipe said.

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2003
Adjust the cooking time a little - mine was still gooey after 30 minutes, but this is YUMMY!!! I added a teaspoon of lemon zest to the cream cheese layer for some extra "zing" and everyone who tried one begged for the recipe. I'm a caterer and if I can figure out a way to "dress it up" a bit, I may just use it for a dessert at one of my dinners! Any suggestions?
