Beezie's Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2004
I must have done somthing wrong. I cooked it much longer than was recommended and the beans were not cooked. I brought the soup to a work potluck and had to throw it out because the beans were still hard. Help! I would love to try it again because I loved the flavor. Did anyone else have this problem???

Cosmopolitan

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2004
I brought this recipe on our annual girlfriend's weekend getaway and everybody agreed that it was the best Cosmopolitan we ever had. I used Absolute Citron vodka. Don't know if that made any difference but they were wonderful! Thanks,Goldie!

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2004
This soup was wonderful. My husband asked if we could have the rest for the next night's dinner. The only substitution I used was original stewed tomatoes because I didn't have the Italian-style and then added some Italian seasoning. I also used an extra can of broth so I could add 1/2 cup of ditalini and still have enough broth as suggested earlier. And for those who thought it was too salty. Just use low-sodium beef broth. Mine wasn't salty at all. Thanks for the recipe, Karen.

Dip For The Stars

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2004
I wish I had taken everyone's advice and brought copies of the recipe with me . It makes a very large amount so I divided it and brought it to 2 parties. Everyone loved it and wanted the recipe. It is a little pricey to make but very good.

Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2005
I have to admit I was skeptical, at first, of the ingredients but I've made it for two functions now and everyone raved about it. The only thing I added was some thinly sliced red onion and once I used baby spinach. Absolutely wonderful either way!!!

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2005
Absolutely delicious salad! I've made it a couple times for parties and everyone wants the recipe. I agree with the previous reviewers that said it makes a lot of dressing. The last time I used 1 1/2 pounds of the spinach and still had more than enough dressing. Perfect color combination for the holidays!

Italian Bread II

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2005
I was a little confused by the instructions. It tells you to divide the dough in 2 but the recipe is for one loaf. Anyway, it was delicious . It was my first attempt at Italian Bread and my family all loved it! I also used your tip about baking it the extra five minutes while the lasagna I made was cooling. It worked great. Warm and crusty. Thanks, Verla!

Absolute Mexican Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2005
I cut the butter to 3/4 cup and there was still plenty. It is a very sweet corn bread (more like cake) but quite good. I brought it to a party and everyone loved it.

Beef, Bean and Barley Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2005
I would have given it a much higher rating if it didn't have the caraway. It was too overpowering for my familiy's taste. I might try it again without it.

Mary's Roasted Red Pepper Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2005
I used low fat cheeses and mayo and it was just as yummy. Also 1/2 the jack cheese I used had jalepenos which others suggested and is highly recommended. I also used a 12 oz jar of the red peppers because that happened to be what I had on hand. Everyone at my party loved it!! Thanks, Mary!

I didn't know what a buster bar was but tried the recipe anyway because of the reviews. I'm glad I did. Easy to make and rich and delicious. A big hit at my bbq.

Cheese and Broccoli Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2005
Wonderful soup recipe! The only thing I did different was use a combination of chicken broth and water 2:1 instead of the bouillon cubes. I served it in homemade bread bowls. My whole family loved it.

Dill, Feta and Garlic Cream Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2006
Wonderful spread! And sooooo easy. I mixed it all in my food processor. The only thing I did different was use a little less feta (my own taste), used 2 teaspoons of dried dill weed (did not have fresh ) and added a tiny bit of milk to make it spread a little easier. Everyone was right that it gets better with time.

Wonderful Banana Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2006
This cake was moist and delicious. It was a big hit with the co-workers.I used others suggestions as follows: I used a preheated 350 degree oven and baked for about 40-45 minutes. I frosted it with a mixture of 1 pkg. banana pudding; 1 cup milk; 1 tub cool whip. Topped it with chopped walnuts.

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2007
My family really liked this recipe. I also couldn't get the onion soup at our store so I improvised with some sauteed onions added to a can of condensed beef broth and added a little diced onion to the meat mixture. I also threw in about 1/2 lb. of sliced mushrooms when I added the sauce. Just something we like. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks, Kelly.

Pork Chops with Fresh Tomato, Onion, Garlic, and Feta

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2007
Loved this recipe! The only change I made was using diced fresh plum tomatoes because our grocery store was out of grape tomatoes. Next time I will use them and would also love to try it with chicken.

Henry and Maudie's Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
I was looking for a recipe using whole wheat flour and these were great. I couldn't tell the difference from my usual oatmeal cookie recipe. I did add 1 cup of raisins because we love them and also 1 tsp of cinnamon. Thanks for the great recipe!
