Terry's Texas Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2012
This is my new favorite bean recipe. Simple and delicious! Because I don't like spicy food, I always leave out the jalapeño pepper. The first time I made it, I substituted regular salsa, but have also made it with the green (preferred the red). I have tried both bouillon and canned chicken broth (preferred the bouillon). Cumin is a new spice to me, so I cut it in half. First time I made it, I had left over dark chicken in the fridge from a store-bought roasted chicken. Added it to the beans and was blown away! Tasted like a mild chicken chili.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
Made these for Christmas morning breakfast. Loved them! My husband ate them, but isn't a big pumpkin or pancake lover. Tried them with a pumpkin syrup, which was O.K. I liked them better topped with applesauce and vanilla yogurt. Would be good with baked apples and whipped cream too.

Fantastic Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
Love this chili! Instead of using canned black beans, I used "Ivis' Black Beans" recipe from this site (which I had in my freezer) and beef chili meat instead of ground turkey (which I also had in my freezer). I used diced tomatoes instead of crushed because that was what I had in the pantry. I did add one can of tomato sauce as well. I will definitely make this again!

Black Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
I had a bag of black beans and used this recipe to prepare them. We enjoyed them as a side dish the first night. I also used them drained over a green salad and in a Bean Bean Chili recipe from this site. Great depth of flavor! Definitely a Keeper!

Best Ever Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2013
The only reason I even looked for a different meatloaf recipe was that I lacked the tomato sauce needed for my old meatloaf (I've been making the same recipe from a cookbook printed in 1963) for at least 34 years. What a surprise it was to eat THIS meatloaf! Taste, texture and sauce are awesome! I will not be making my old recipe ever again. BTW I used a combination of ground venison, beef and pork. Everything else was as written.

Sweet Cornbread Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2013
Yum! I didn't choose this recipe for it's healthy nature, but because my husband likes sweet cornbread. It delivered! Made it for New Year's Day to go with black-eyed peas and cabbage. Neighbors also loved it.

Paleo Oatmeal (Not Really Oatmeal At All)

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2014
My daughter and son-in-law eat Paleo for health reasons. . . Wanting to spoil them a bit, I did most of the cooking during my recent visit. I have been wanting to try this recipe for a month or so. . . . I followed it exactly and used Granny Smith apples. This "oatmeal" took some time to put together, but was well worth the effort. It was a delicious comfort food, perfect for a cold winter morning! Will definitely be making this again.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
This is the tastiest quick bread ever! It is far better than my standard pumpkin bread recipe (which I started making in my high school cooking class 36 years ago.) The texture and spices were awesome! Highly recommended!

Daddy's Sausage and Peppers

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
I made this recipe as written except that I added an extra can of diced tomatoes and served it over linguine. It was beautiful and delicious! The next day I used the leftovers in omelettes. Excellent as well. Keeper.

White Almond Wedding Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2012
Following the recipe exactly, I made LOTS of cupcakes. We had the lobby of our local movie theatre decorated like a wedding reception and served these cupcakes for the premiere of "Breaking Dawn Part 1." I'm not a big fan of white cake, but this one is wonderful! Great taste and texture.

Blueberry Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2015
I had TONS of blueberries from our produce co-op and decided to try this. It is easy to make and perfect for so many things! I refrigerated it overnight (as suggested) and had some on Belgian waffles the next morning! Yum! It was also tasty on Greek yogurt and vanilla ice cream (like cobbler without the crust).

Blueberry Crisp II

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2015
I, too, was leery of the mayo in a dessert recipe, but decided to trust the other reviewers. . . Not fully committed, I halved the fruit and made a full recipe of the topping. It went together quickly and was delicious hot with vanilla ice cream. Keeper!

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013
After a week of quick meals, I was in the mood to cook and to try something new. The email featuring this recipe caught my attention. The only changes I made were to use only lemon juice from a bottle (it was all I had) and substituted 1 t. of Penzey's Spices Ozark Style Seasoning for salt and pepper. This was delicious served with brown rice and sauted zucchini. Keeper!

Banana Wake-Up Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
I had one very ripe banana, so I decided to use this recipe as inspiration. As suggested in other reviews, I used applesauce instead of margarine, whole wheat flour and a bit of cinnamon. I have a favorite "healthy cookie" recipe that starts with a package cookie mix and adds TONS of other things. I did that with these bars. . . I added additional oatmeal, raisins, craisins, coconut and toffee bits. Baked it for 25 minutes in an 8x8" pan. My neighbor and I loved them. The texture is more like a snack cake than a granola bar. I ate mine with my hands with no problems :) 7/23/13 - Ohmigoodness! Inspired by the thought of a banana split, tweaked this recipe today as follows: subbed 3 T. applesauce for margarine, added 1 small can crushed pineapple (drained) and a small handful of chopped maraschino cherries with mashed banana. Added a small handful of coconut, half a bag of Ghirardelli 60% cacao bittersweet baking chocolate chips and some cocoa (eyeballed it). Used mini loaf pans (filled 1/3 full) and baked 25 minutes. EXCELLENT! 2/4/14 - Made these Paleo for my daughter by substituting honey for brown sugar, gluten-free granola instead of oatmeal and almond meal/flour instead of wheat flour. Added raisins, craisins and coconut. Good!
