No Bakes

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
These are awesome! Taste just like I remember the ones from the school cafeteria over 40 years ago. I followed the recipe exactly. I used my hands to mix the oats and peanut butter because I wasn't getting anywhere with that wooden spoon. I can't imagine someone thinking they were dry, because they are not at all. Neither are they too sweet, IMHO.

Magic Wands

Reviewed: May 20, 2010
Such a fun idea. I used white chocolate chips because I've never known of frosting to harden to the point that I thought these should to keep them from being sticky. I used a brush to apply the melted chips to the pretzel. Then I sprinkled different colored sugars, sprinkles, nonpareils, etc. onto the pretzel. I sprinkled it over a paper plate and then poured the excess that fell onto the plate back into the container. Next time I think I'll try almond bark instead of white chocolate chips....I just like the taste better.

Tantalizingly Tangy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
Delicious. I made one change. I added a chopped onion because I couldn't imagine a meat loaf without onion. I was tempted to spice it up even more just because that's the way we like our food, but I thought perhaps it was purposefully lacking in spices because it would be a better complement to the glaze. Two things I will do differently next time. I will leave out the onions because I don't think they added that much to the end effect. And I will double the glaze recipe . . . half to pour on the top during cooking as the recipe calls for, and half to use to pour over the meat loaf at the table. I don't think this recipe will take the place of a regular meat loaf in our house, but it is a delightful change.

Chicken with Lemon Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
This was very good. My husband said it was perfect, but I thought it could use more lemony flavor. That may have been because I used bottled lemon juice instead of fresh. Other than that, I followed the recipe. Next time I will use fresh lemon. Since my husband said it was perfect, and since I fudged on the lemon juice, I decided this recipe deserved 5 stars instead of the 4 that I was leaning toward.

Sweet Potato Pie II

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
Absolutely delicious! I have never made a sweet potato pie before but I wanted to make one for a special occasion. I expected to try several recipes to determine which one was best, but after the way this one turned out, there's no need to try anymore. I made it according to the recipe with two exceptions. (1) I agree with another reviewer that 3/8 cup of sugar must have been a misprint--never heard of 3/8 cup of anything. Eighth marks aren't even on my measuring cups. I decided to go with 3/4 cup of sugar. (2) I went to the beverage store for rum and they were closed, so I used 2 tsp. rum extract. Didn't know what in the world I would do with a bottle-minus-2-tablespoons of rum anyway. If you're not sure about the rum flavor, just leave it out because I know it would still be great. I may skip it next time. FYI, 2 cups of mashed sweet potatoes equals about 1 1/2 lbs. of raw sweet potatoes. If you have time, bake them rather than boiling or microwaving because the taste will be far superior. I too had slightly too much filling for the regular 9-inch pie crust, but not enough for a deep-dish. If you like sweet potato pie you will love this one. UPDATE: Made again with minor changes. Reduced rum extract to 1 tsp. and increased cinnamon and nutmeg to 1 1/2 tsp. This time I would have given it more than 5 stars if possible.

Fasolatha

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
Delicious the first time around...even better after sitting over night. I used canned white kidney beans. Didn't have fresh parsley so I used dried. Other than those two changes, I made it according to the recipe. Served it over rice. I will definitely make it again...the same way I did this time.

Pecan Snack

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2008
Delicious! Love the sweet and salty combination. In fact, I may add just a little extra salt next time, but that's just personal taste. Easy, no-fail recipe.

Pretty Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
WOW! If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would. I didn't have low-sodium soy sauce, so I used regular soy sauce and halved the quantity from 2/3 cup to 1/3 cup. I have put low-sodium soy sauce on my grocery list, though, to keep on hand just for this recipe. I didn't have spicy brown mustard so I used dijon. This recipe actually made a little more marinade than I really needed for 3 breast halves (that's what always comes in a package in this part of the country), so I may make a little less next time. This is the first time I have ever used liquid smoke. I'm a fan!

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
Love it! Followed recipe exactly. No need to cover the chicken as long as you baste every 15 minutes, as the recipe directs. I do suggest that you check the internal temperature of the chicken after about 45 minutes. I baked mine one hour, and it was slightly overdone.

Baked Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
I made this according to the recipe with two minor exceptions. I left out the peppers, and I sauteed the onion in a little butter before adding it to the mix. It is delicious, but way too fattening to eat on a regular basis. We will save this for the occasional splurge.

Simple Taco Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
Delicious! I made a couple of minor changes based on personal preference. Two pounds of ground beef seemed like too much for a recipe that serves six, so I only used one pound of ground beef. After I browned and drained it, I added it with all of the other ingredients to a crockpot. I added a 2.25-oz. can of sliced black olives, drained. I left out the water because I ran out of room in the crockpot, but it proved to be unnecessary, I assume because the crockpot held in all of the moisture.

Crunchy Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
This one is a keeper at our house. My entire family loved it. We even got my very picky 3- and 5-year-old grandsons to eat some. I did not deviate from the recipe, although I did use low-fat mayo and sour cream (not fat free) and the 98-percent fat-free soup. Also, I used one of those Uncle Ben's 90-second packets of rice because it's the exact amount that the recipe calls for, and it speeds things up. I used the plain white, but next time I'll try a different one, maybe the one with some brown rice in it because I did think the casserole could use a little color . . . it was just so white. I cooked it in a 9x13 casserole dish. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing!

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
This frosting was exactly what I was looking for. It is very creamy and not too sweet. If you like a really sweet cream cheese frosting you will probably want to use a recipe that has less cream cheese and more powdered sugar.

Creamy Spinach

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
I made this exactly as the recipes directs, and it was delicious. I wouldn't change a thing. I do recommend using whole nutmeg rather than the pre-ground. One thing you should note is that it only makes 3 servings. I didn't notice that before I made it. When it turned out to be such a small amount, I double-checked the recipe and discovered it only serves 3. I was making this for a large group, so that was kind of a shock, but it was my fault.

Sea Foam Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
This salad tastes great. My only problem was that I couldn't get the pears smooth like the recipe called for. I mashed them first, like the instructions said, then when that didn't work, I beat them with my electric mixer. They still weren't smooth, but I finished the recipe anyway. Like I said, the flavor was wonderful, but I do think it would be even better without the tiny chunks of pear. It wasn't too sweet. I wanted a side dish that people would not confuse with a dessert, and this served that purpose. But next time I make it I think I will try putting the pears in my food processor. Surely then they will be smooth and I will get the texture in the salad that I'm looking for.

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2012
I made this recipe with the orange zest and dried cranberries. They are delicious, and I will make them again. However, I will change up the prep method. I usually try to follow a recipe exactly the first time, which is what I did here. But I do not like grating anything on a box grater, and frozen butter is no exception. And trying to mix the butter into the dry ingredients with my hands was a total mess. So terribly sticky that a large portion of the dough stuck to my fingers. In desperation, I sprayed a little Pam on my hands, and I was finally able to get a ball formed. From that point on, everything went smoothly. The next time I make this recipe, I will skip the grating with a box grater and mixing with my fingers. Instead, I will follow other reviewers suggestions to use my stand mixer or food processor.

Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
This one gets a 5 star...delicious. I have my first tomato plant ever and for some reason that I don't understand, by the time the tomatoes turn red, they start splitting open and have to be thrown away. So I decided to use them green. This is the first time I have made fried green tomatoes. I made them exactly as the recipe called for except I added a teaspoon of cayenne pepper to the flour mixture. These were different from the way my grandmother used to make them...she used corn meal, but I decided I like these even better. I will not let any more tomatoes on my plant get red.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
Delicious. I used fresh pumpkin instead of canned. I substituted an equal amount of Splenda in place of the sugar. I also substituted an equal amount of whole-wheat pastry flour in place of the all-purpose flour. It had a great flavor. It wasn't quite as moist as I had hoped, but I didn't rate it down for that since I altered the recipe. Perhaps the ww flour caused the slight dryness. I am going to try it again, and this time I will replace the water with coconut milk to see if that makes it a little more moist. I'll let you know how it turns out. Oh, one more thing I changed but didn't intend to...when I opened my carton of eggs I realized I had bought medium instead of large. So I used 5 medium eggs instead of the 4 large eggs called for in the recipe. No idea what effect that may have had on the final product. When I make it again I'll be sure to have the correct size eggs.

Lucy's Mac and Corn

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
I made one unintentional change to this recipe. I accidentally picked up 2 cans of creamed corn rather than 1 of creamed and 1 of whole kernel. It still turned out delicious. I was torn about whether to precook the macaroni because about half of the reviewers were adamant that you should and the other half said definitely do not. I decided to follow the recipe exactly and NOT precook. The macaroni was done to perfection. It's a mystery to me how we can all follow the same recipe, cook it at the same temp for the same length of time, and some get done and some do not. But my recommendation is to NOT precook it. Just adds to the time required to prepare and the number of dishes to wash. The one thing I will try next time is using less butter. While the dish wasn't at all greasy, I just keep thinking about how much fat is in a full stick of butter, even though I used light butter. We won't eat this too often because it's loaded with carbs, but it's a great dish to serve the grandchildren.
