Turkey Tetrazzini II

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2013
After reading that some cooks thought this was a little bland - I used buttermilk instead of regular milk - adds the zing that is missing for some! Also - when you put the pasta and turkey in the baking dish - add extras - like peas, pimentos (for a little color!), and mushrooms. If you used canned mushrooms - remember to add the liquid to the buttermilk mixture before cooking! Also - I use Wondra instead of plain flour and mini fuslli instead of spaghetti.

Five Ingredient Ice Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2013
Very quick and easy. I took another reviewer's advice and added peppermint extract, green food coloring, and mini chocolate chips to make a mint-chip flavor. I HAVLED the peppermint extract to 1/2 tsp. - and it was still a strange taste. I will make this again with this variation - but will use pure MINT extract next time. The peppermint would have been good - but with red food coloring and crushed peppermint! I served the mint variation I made on top of warm brownies....but would have been much better with MINT extract. Thanks for the base idea!!!! Will use when I need a special topping for those special desserts - as well as a true peppermint variety around Christmastime!

Dad's Escarole and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2012
I put everything in my crockpot! I used a carton of vegetable broth and added 2 cups of water. I used three different types of canned beans and added a tabelspoon of dried dill to make it interesting. I did have to add a good amount of salt - since everything I used was no salt added! The only part I cooked on the stove - was I sauteed 2 red onions and 2 medium hot peppers in grapeseed oil, butter, salt, and 2 tablespoons of sugar to almost caramelize them - then added them to the crockpot. Cooked on low for 5 hours - WONDERFUL - the slight warmth from the peppers was perfect for this 23 degree night we are supposed to have! Thanks! Will use again and again - the crockpot - made this soooo easy!!!!!

Sour Cream Dressing

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
I admit I changed this a little bit - but did keep the spirit of the recipe - but only because I don't like the taste of olive oil - so I used grapeseed oil instead. I also favor dill over parsley - so I made that substitution too. For anyone with guests not wanting alcohol (or ingredients made with or named after alcohol) you can substitute apple cider vinegar in place of the red wine vinegar....I did add a bit more sugar and a bit more sour cream - I wanted it sweeter and for it to have a thicker consistency. It does need to sit overnight - then be whisked again before dressing your salads! This would be great on a broccoli slaw as well!!!!!

Holiday Fruit Stuffed Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
First - let me say that the mix rubbed onto the chicken was wonderful - it made the drippings perfect for gravy - and in fact - I just used the drippings with Wondra and water to make the best gravy we've ever tasted! I will use this mix on my Thanksgiving turkey! Second - I learned a few things regarding the stuffing - for us personally - we don't like walnuts and will use pecans next time. Also - we will only use a pinch of cinnamon - it was too strong for us....maybe a touch of all spice instead next time? I'll have to experiment. Using the fruits - esp. the prunes - made it very tasty. I will quarter the grapes next time - so they are not so visible. Also - NOTE - this stuffing would be fabulous to serve with HAM!!!!!!!.................oh - I didn't find this stuffing expensive to make, as the other reviewer noted....I got grapes and apples on sale...canned pineapple is very cheap...and I actually used drained, canned pears - which are also pretty inexpensive. The chicken was the expensive part!

Momma's Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
I made the sauce for this before I starting browning my ground bison - so I could tweak it - if needed. The desired sweetness of a sauce varies for every individual - but for us - I added an extra tablespoon of white sugar and a tablespoon of light corn syrup. I substituted a little Wostershire sauce in place of the vinegar. I also sauteed one small onion and one medium red pepper and added to my bison. I will never use any other recipe listed with lots more spices/ingredients - this one is simple and perfect! Anyone can adjust the sweetness or acidity to their taste very quickly! Thanks a bunch!

Iowa City Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
A different twist on oatmeal cookies! For those that can't have chocolate - I found using an equal amount of toffee baking bits (Heath) worked just fine! ****Also - WARNING - one past reviewer of this recipe recommends eating this cookie dough RAW - I reported this to Allrecipes and they will not remove the review or put a footnote on this recipe - it is NOT safe to eat raw dough - not just for the raw eggs - but because of the raw flour!

Baked Italian Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
Great versitile recipe! You can use either bread crumbs or finely crushed buttery crackers! I doubled the recipe and used a large quantity of chicken tenders - made for great snack, dip-able nuggets, topper for my salad, and sandwich....the list goes on! Thanks!!!! Will use again!

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
Simple, quick, and versitile recipe! You can add whatever spices you like and it bakes (per my oven!) in only 30 minutes! Double the recipe and use a large quantity of pre-cut chicken tenders! Instant dip-able nuggets that any kid or hubby will love!

Pumpkin Bars II

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2012
Three suggestions to start with: I used about 2 tbsp less oil than specified, I added 2 tsp. vanilla and 1 tsp. maple flavoring, and I used pumpkin pie spice + some fresh ground nutmeg in place of the cinnamon To jazz this up: I added some chopped pecans and 1/4 cup caramel bits, and 1/4 cup shredded coconut!!!! I suggest leaving off the icing - it really doesn't need it - and is great plain with milk or coffee - and if you need it sweeter - then zap it in the microwave for ten seconds - then top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. I wanted a quick and easy pumpkin dessert - that could be dessert or breakfast - thanks - will use again!.

No Crust Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2012
Delicious! For the 1/3 cup milk - I just used evaporated milk - since I had a little left over from a previous recipe. I also added 1 tsp. of almond extract, in addition to the vanilla. I added some chopped, toasted pecans....and what made this very yummy - is I added 3/4 cup of those little round caramel baking bits (not the brickle bits - but Caramel!)!!!!! Will make again!

Grape Leaves Aleppo

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2012
Fantastic - Thanks for sharing! I used Jasmine rice and omitted the olives because my husband doesn't like them. I also didn't have fresh garlic on hand - so I used a lot of organic minced garlic from a jar. Also - I used Meyer lemons instead of regular ones. I just love having a few of these for lunch - I dip them in a sauce of sour cream, cajun seasoning, and a lot of curry powder!

Citrus Yogurt Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
This is a really nice cake recipe for when you want a little something when company drops by. Perfect with coffee! I did make one change - I personally don't like the taste of olive oil in sweet recipes - so I used Grapeseed oil instead - came out great! I also used the zest of FIVE small lemons - and in addition to the vanilla extract - I also added 1 tsp. of almond extract. After the cake was done - I made a glaze from confectioners' sugar, the juice of 2 lemons, 1/2 tsp. of almond extract, and a couple of drops of yellow food coloring. Will use this again - next time I'll make an orange cake!

Tangy Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2012
I wish I could give this ten stars! I used two large English cucumbers - didn't salt them - just sliced them - I wanted their liquid in the salad. I doubled the dressing - upped the honey and vinegar and salt a bit - and wow - this is addictive!!!! I only had canned, diced tomatoes (no salt added) on hand - but rinsed and drained them thoroughly. I think this would be great on its own - or served on some bibb lettuce - or maybe even add some pasta to it and make it a pasta salad! I'm going to make the dressing on it's own - and see how it is on regular salads!!!!! Thanks a million!!!!!!!!

Pumpkin Pie Pudding

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
Perfect flavor and texture - I doubled the recipe and didn't change any of the ingredients. I used my hand mixer for about 2 minutes on low - just to make sure everything was really smooth and combined. This dessert is perfect - because it can be served warm during the fall/winter and cold during summer. Even on low - this cooked very quickly in my slow cooker. After just under 2 hours - I noticed that the edges were at about 180 degrees and the center was around 120 degrees....so I made the decision and took a heavy pot whisk and mixed everything up again - yes - you will lose the perfectly smooth appearance - but you will risk having the sides burned by the time the middle is done, if you don't! So - mine was done just 30 minutes after that! Very yummy-licious! I also plan to spoon some in a bowl and top with granola for a different type of breakfast treat/parfait!!!!

Tarragon-Dill Grilled Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 30, 2012
Refreshing and perfect for summertime! I doubled the recipe - so I would have enough to last all weekend! The only thing I would do different next time is use a little bit less vinegar. I also added 2 teaspoons of white sugar....but probably would not need to do that next time, when I decrease the vinegar. Will make again and again! Oh - also - I used dried herbs and used Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream - since that's what I had on hand.

White Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
Excellent!!! I doubled the recipe to use with a smoked salmon pasta. I omitted the bouillon and granules - but added salt, pepper, and blackened redfish seasoning. I also used real butter. Will use this again - was super quick and super easy!!!!!

Mincemeat Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2012
Wonderful!! I did do a slight "goof" - I wasn't paying attention and forgot to bake the crust first, before putting the mincemeat in (I used a large jar and added walnuts as well!). Fortunately - I just doubled the bake time - and with my oven - it came out perfect!!! Will make again!!!!!!!! Oh - also - didn't use the frosting at all - but would have been nice - had with vanilla ice cream instead.

Banana Oatmeal Cookie

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2012
A good cookie - very cakey - so make sure you like that type of cookie. Also - you should totally spray a little Pam on the cookie sheet before putting the dough on!!!! A must! I added some vanilla bean paste - because I like a lot of vanilla flavor. These are good with milk - or heat up one in a bowl and put a spoon of vanilla ice cream over it.

Eggplant con Queso

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
This is great! I doubled the recipe and used mozerella cheese. Serve with large pita chips and drop a tiny bit of tobasco on before eating - yummy-licious!!!!!!!!! Also - another time - I fixed as a side dish too - put under the broiler to make extra crispy on top - served with veggies and fried pork chops! I would eventually like to put this in the middle of a soup bowl (after getting very crispy under the broiler) and ladle some onion soup around........very versitile recipe!!!
