Graham Cracker Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
This was SO good...the CRUST!!! I had a quarter of a can of Sweetened Condensed Milk left from another dessert on this site, so I easily quartered this recipe with the calculate tool. We just thought that this was to die for and very simple. Thanks!

Roasted Broccoli

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
As others said, salty, salty, salty (depending on your taste, I guess) and I put NO extra salt in it. Next time I will also halve the Montreal steak seasoning for that reason. Seems like this would always be a very dependable recipe. Roasted the veggies (used red pepper) and they came out perfectly crisp-tender. Thank you!

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2010
Scrumptuous! I also didn't bother with the foil, just sprayed the pan. Had a can of raspberries in heavy syrup, so drained and used that since I didn't have the jam. It was melt in your mouth good but it was on the crumbly side for cutting and serving at a potluck. Next go around, I might look back again on other reviewers suggestions for moistening it up a bit. Simple, simple, simple and not too sweet, just right. Next time I'll use the Smucker's Low Sugar Raspberry Jam. We always preferred it to regular. It even seemed fruitier. Thanks for sharing!

Overnight Blueberry French Toast

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
I was never a fan of bread pudding, but this makes a fantastic one! I liked it much better cold as a dessert. I had an 8oz. mixed berry whipped cream cheese and a plain 12oz. one to use up. As someone else suggested, I mixed the cream cheese right in with the milk mixture,and used boysenberry syrup rather than maple. I dusted it with powdered sugar for a bit more sweetness, then poured the blueberry sauce straight over the baked casserole and no one even reached for the extra syrup. You might mistake the very moist bread as not being done but if you refrigerate it and serve it cold, you will see that it is perfect. Good either way, but I'm filing it under desserts. Thanks!

Barbequed Pineapple

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
BBQ'd Pineapple Very nice side. Steve made this for a larger group, so he doubled it. The good thing about this one, you can cheat and halve/quarter the rings on the buffet table at the last minute if you find you have to stretch it!!!. Lots of inquiries on this one. He made it as written, no changes or tweaks. It was both a hit and --GONE!

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2010
Read some reviews and halved the butter but I also halved the honey (for the calories). Left the quantities the same on the (coarse Dijon) mustard and the curry. Only used 3/4 t. of salt. It was just PERFECT for our tastes. I put it in a 9x11 dish and the sauce was already more than half way up the sides of the chicken. I did cover it for the first 45 minutes with foil. Very simple and very, very good. Thank you for such a quick and tasty dish. This would be wonderful over brown rice.

Asian Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
This was so tasty and a very nice change! I like using Napa cabbage so I only used that which gave me 9 c. shredded. We were camping, so I just used 1 t. ginger and 1 T. garlic powder. Used one red and one green pepper, no carrots or cilantro. This was very, very good. It does have a tan color to it that might not appear to be too appetizing to some. I also used chunky peanut butter (our taste) and next time, am going to use shelled peanuts for even more crunch and texture.

Cuban Midnight Sandwich

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
Quick and easy solution for dinner. Hub's was on wheat bread and he did mine on a tortilla (less carbs). Next time will use the flip side of the waffle iron, flat griddles for panini. Didn't think of that at the time but should be perfect. Thanks!

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
Used boneless chicken breast filets. I didn't realize we were out of Balsamic vinegar so I had to sub Tarragon. It was just wonderful! We omitted the butter at the end but thickened with flour/water. I agree with the previous reviewer about making more sauce and putting it over pasta next time. Chicken was very tender and melt-in-your-mouth good. Thanks!

The Best Bean and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
This really lives up to its name, "The BEST". Very, very tasty. We need to keep referring people to the cook who submitted this recipe's "real" directions on 3/24/08. I could only cook it about 6 hours the first day. I used a 1# bag of baby carrots and 4 tomatoes. For the 7 c. chicken broth, I used 1 1/2 T. ham base for 4 c. Added the additional 3 c. and 1 1/8 T. ham base the next day when it cooked for a few more hours. I don't think anything was lost having to do it this way in case plans to cook it all in one day change for you, too. And the day after, it was just as good, if not better. Thank you!

Vicki's Hush Puppies

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
Instead of self-rising flour and self-rising cornmeal, per others, I just added 3 t. (1 T.) of baking powder. It admittedly was on the sweeter side and I know that isn't the traditional Southern style but if you like cornbread that way, you'll like this. It's not for everyone's taste but it was for ours. Thanks!

Spicy Spaghetti Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
I skipped the step of cutting it in half. I pierced it with a knife all over and nuked it for 10 minutes, not covering it and no water. Came out perfectly. I used leftover ground lamb and pork tenderloin for the meat. Used a 29 oz. can of the crushed tomatoes and omitted the wine and capers. The thickness of the sauce was just right. We put freshly grated Romano on it as a great finish. This was very tasty and also a very attractive dish. I am going to add cubed eggplant to it for the leftovers. If served alone, this was enough for 2 of us to eat for one meal and enough for a 2nd meal as leftovers.

Spicy Lamb Patties

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
These were very good...different. Served it, as suggested, with a plain yoghurt/cucumber mixture. We like them on the rarer side so 3-4 minutes per side was perfect for us. Thank you.

Applesauce French Toast

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
I used a little more applesauce (1/3 c.) and a little less milk (2/3) and 1 T. brown sugar instead of the white. Used slipper cibotta bread cut thick (1"). It made 8 pieces. Everything else was the same. I cooked it on an electric griddle at 350. Served it with applesauce on the side and warm maple syrup. Powdered sugar and a fruit syrup would be really good with this, too.

Super Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
The hub who never made or understood white gravy and always thought it was yucky-looking cooked this up. To make it palatable to himself, he turned it brown. He achieved this by adding a 1/4 t. Kitchen Bouquet and a 1 t. Worcestershire Sauce. He then added 2 T. chives and 1/2 t. prepared minced garlic. He baked up Grands biscuits and he is now a convert and forever hooked. He had the Tabasco out at his plate (yuck!) but I noticed he didn't use it. VERY easy recipe and the bonus is, he's showed "ownership" of it so I have some kitchen time off. Thanks for the recipe, Mr. Evan's, but I have to admit it was his own spicy elk sausage that he used, naturally.

Breakfast Treat

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
I really did a lot of changes on this one but it was delicious. There is only hubby and I and there was still more than half left (only because I'm trying to lose weight!) I made it in an 8 x 8 glass dish, sprayed with Pam. I used 9 cocktail rounds for the bread, which fit pefectly. I doubled the cheese to 2 c. I layered that on top, then half a green pepper chopped, and half an onion, chopped, then sprinkled Bacos on top of that. I eliminated the butter entirely. I mixed the 4 eggs with only 1 c. of milk, adding 1/4 t. salt, 1/4 t. pepper and 1 t. dry mustard. I still baked it for an hour but maybe this was my mistake. The recipe said to cover and refrig overnight. I did not do this but it never said to uncover it to bake, so I left the foil on which made it a little soupy. The taste was all there though. I will try this again definitely but this time leaving it uncovered and see how it goes. With the changes I made, a definite keeper. Thanks Shari for putting me in the direction of getting this great casserole together!
