Frito® Corn Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2014
This is so good! I made a couple of changes. I used mayo and more corn and Fritos. I made it the night before, but I added Cheese Chili Fritos and the cheese the next morning. Everyone loves this one.

Sunday Best Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2014
Yum! I was pleasantly surprised. I was skeptical of the pie filling. Make choices in the fruit, but the pie filling is what makes this recipe unique. I also used green grapes, black cherries and fresh pineapple. I mixed the fruit with the pie filling and put it in a huge container. I saved the canned pineapple for a stir-fry the next night, but used the juice for soaking as directed. With the huge amount of fruit, one can of pie filling was perfect. By the time I took it to the party, the fruit had released a little juice and it thinned the pie filling a bit. Everybody loved it and the addition of apples gave it a bit of crunch. Don't worry about making it ahead of time and adding the fragile fruit right before serving.

How to Make Dulce de Leche

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2014
This is excellent! It's helpful to have a large pan of simmering water on the stove to maintain the water level in the small pan without changing the water temperature. I simmered mine exactly for 3 hours because I wanted it somewhat thin to spread on top of a Tres Leche cake. 3 hours is a long time, but as long as I checked it often and maintained the water level to an inch below the top, it was as easy as it gets. It was so delicious that I had to stop myself from eating it right out of the can! Much better than anything in the store.

Lemon Square Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2014
Yum! I've never made lemon bars before and I was concerned after checking reviews and all the changes. I decided to follow the submitter's instructions and make any changes, if needed, after tasting. The first time I made them, my crust was a little to dark and a little too crispy for my liking. They were excellent and the sifted xxx sugar on top hid the browning. The 2nd time I made them, I did decrease the butter by 2 tablespoons and lowered the temp to 325 and did everything else as instructed. I gave most of them (minus 2 pieces) to my friend that loves lemon bars, and he thought they were the best ever. Try this one, it's so easy and so good.

Browned Butter Vegetables with Almonds

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
Another great recipe from Wilemon! I did cut the butter a bit, but didn't change anything else. We loved it! I think you could use any vegetable you want, but I loved this combination. I would probably steam carrots a few minutes first if I was using them. You really should try her Delectable Marinated Chicken, here on AR (boneless thighs)it is so good!

PHILADELPHIA® Fruit Pizza

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2014
Fruit Pizza is a family favorite, but I try to keep it simple. I use a disposable, foil pan, if I am taking this to a BBQ and put it in a pizza box. The directions here seem a little time consuming, lining the pan with foil, flipping the whole thing and straining the marmalade. I just melt a little apple jelly to brush on mine to make the fruit all shiny. Great recipe!

Lemon-Basil Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: May 17, 2014
I've just starting eating quinoa about a year ago and found this to be a refreshing change from all of the usual salads we often eat. I discovered it on The Buzz and I'm so happy I did!

California Rice Salad

Reviewed: May 13, 2014
I absolutely loved this! They were giving away samples of this at my local grocery store. I promptly bought all the ingredients & ran home & made it. Now I make it with pineapple tidbits ... just smaller bites, haha. I love rice & bacon but try to eat each, only once or twice a month. Spice it up if you think it needs it, but try it!

Fiery Fish Tacos with Crunchy Corn Salsa

Reviewed: May 10, 2014
Loved them! Not being deep fried, they were so much healthier than the fish taco recipe I was using. Two tablespoons of cayenne pepper seemed like a lot so I cut down on it to suit our tastes.

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: May 10, 2014
I can't get enough of these! If you're pressed for time bagged coleslaw mix works and is prettier too with the purple cabbage. I did add cilantro because it just goes so well with Mexican dishes.

Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli

Reviewed: May 9, 2014
This is absolutely delicious! I love fresh vegetables and find that they are so much better when roasted. I used to steam them all the time with a little bit of butter and this is so much better. It's now one of my favorite ways to eat broccoli. Thank you for the simple, yet wonderful recipe!

Chocolate Caramel Candy

Reviewed: May 7, 2014
Yum! It's pretty rich so I save it for Christmas. Making 8 dozen means plenty for gift giving. Just know before you get started that all four layers need to be chilled before adding the next one. Of course it will take some to get together. Just do something else in between layers. Everyone loves this one. Thank you!

Fried Rice I

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2014
I think this is excellent as is, but whenever I cook rice, I use my rice cooker and cook quite a bit of rice. So the second time I made it, I used leftover rice. Although rice from the rice cooker is soft and fluffy, once it's leftover, it cools off in big clumps. I rinse it out in a colander with cool water, let in drain while I proceed with the recipe as follows. It's easy to throw in a few leftover veggies or meat to your rice and it's all good.

Pan-Fried Asparagus

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2014
Excellent recipe with a few modifications. Just drizzle a little oil and cut the butter a bit. I also add my fresh garlic near the end just to get the flavor but not overcook the garlic. I find it amazing how so few ingredients can make something so amazing! Oh, plus it was so easy!

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2014
A little labor intensive, but worth all the chopping. The most difficult part was peeling the squash. I cut it into quarters, stood it on end and used my sharpest knife and cut straight down the outside to peel. I roast at 450, tenting if necessary. Just use common sense with the cooking times for the vegetables you are cooking. I think the submitter has a great combination as is, but I see where we all like to add our favorites. With dried spices, remember to use 1/3 the amount, for the amount of fresh. Next time I will use less potatoes & more sweet potatoes, (personal preference) I made again adding summer squash, mixing in at the very end. I love all vegetables but didn't care for zucchini in it. Even cooking for a very few minutes I found it to be too mushy for me.

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2014
Although I love fresh green beans and cherry tomatoes, I wasn't too crazy about trying this one. . I didn't think I would like cooked cherry tomatoes with green beans. Shows you how little I know. The taste was phenomenal. I did make some minor changes. I prefer to steam my vegetables and I love fresh garlic over garlic salt. I didn't heat the tomatoes in the sauce, I just put them on top of the cooked beans and gently folded in the sauce. I didn't want them to turn to mush. So yummy! I didn't want to share!
