Charleston Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
Ok, here goes. I love, love, love this, however, my family is trying to eat healthier so I made some changes. First I omitted the butter entirely and used 1 egg plus 1 1/2 cups Egg Beaters. I used half regular cheese and half fat free cheese, fat free croutons and 1/2 C lower sodium, real bacon bits. I prepared it the night before and cooked for about an hour in a 9x13 pan and did not adjust the milk at all. It turned out wonderful (not soggy) and this altered version is so much healthier. I got 8 servings and froze some so I coukd just pull them out of the freezer and reheat in the microwave for a midweek breakfast. They reheated wonderfully in the microwave. Thank you so much!

Easy Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2007
While I am sure this did not taste exactly like "real" chocolate mousse, it was divine and I proudly seved it to guests last night for dinner. I added a little Bailey's and made a raspberry sauce to go with it. I served it in chilled wine glasses and it looked very impressive. Don't let the simple recipe for you, this doesn't have to be just for kids!

Cranberry Nut Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
I cut the butter to 2 Tbs. and added 3 Tbs. of applesauce and they came out great. I do agree that they are more of a coffee cake than a bar but they were still very yummy.

Mango-licious Tilapia

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2007
I have to admit that I don't like fish, but I keep trying. However, I was really looking forward to the salsa, so I was disappointed that I ended up throwing most of it away. It had too much avacado, WAY too much salt, and the mango got lost. My husband did love the tilapia and ate all four fillets, so I gave this recipe two stars anyway. This was also a lot of work with all the chopping and prep. And not an inexpensive dish either!

Chive and Onion Yogurt and Cream Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2007
YUM!!! This was so light and creamy and not overpowering with onion. I really hate to rate a recipe that I have made many changes to, but I didn't have chives and when I looked for my onion powder I realized I was out. I substituted 1/2 tsp. Adobo seasoning and didn't bother getting chives and it was a HUGE hit at our BBQ yesterday. I served it with Triscuits and many people asked for the recipe.

Italian Wedding Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
Very good soup! This is very similar to my recipe for Italian Wedding soup, but I like these meatballs better, although I did substitute ground turkey. To those who found it a little bland - do not pre-cook the meatballs. Let them cook in the boiling soup and then the spices will season the broth. I make my meatballs smaller using about 1 tsp. per meatball and I use acini de pepi pasta (tiny ball shape) instead of the orzo. Sometimes I just use ground pork sausage for the meatballs wehn I am in a hurry.

Cheesecake Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2012
I made these in a 11x7 pan and I cut them into 24 servings. They were small peices and thin but that made them easier to eat like a bar cookie rather than a piece of cheesecake. In that regard, this was exactly what I was looking for. I also made a blueberry topping to go with and they were fantastic.

Made it exactly as written and it was wonderful. I did bake it in a 8x8 pan for 35 minutes and it turned out beautifully.

Sourdough Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
I was so excited to try this recipe because it is a true sourdough recipe and does not require yeast. I am so happy that this turned out well. I was very nervous because this was my first bread from a homemade starter and while it did take a long time to rise, it was worth the wait. It took about 20 hours for the first rise and then about three for the second. My dough was very sticky as well - too sticky to knead - so I added a small amout of flour just so I could handle it and it turned out fine. Not to dense as I was worried it would be. Good sourdough is a true test of patience!

Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Ricotta Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
I thought this was okay, but nothing special. I am glad I tried it, but I don't feel the need to make it again.

Swiss Potatoes Gratin

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2007
I wanted to like this so badly. It was very time consuming to make and the ingredients were rather pricey. I was also trying to overlook how unhealthy they are, but when we tasted them, it was not worth it at all. The ricotta was just wierd in there and there was not much flavor (and I even threw in extra seasoning based on other reviews). We did eat them with dinner but threw the rest away. Usually when I try a new recipe that I am very excited about and it does't turn out like I want, I 'tweak' it until it works. Not this one.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2007
I followed the recipe exactly and these were wonderful. I gave them away as Christmas gifts and everyone loved them. These cookies have been added to my holiday 'must haves'.

No-Bake Granola Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2005
These are fantastic. I have made them many times with different add-ins and they always turn out great (except when I used low-fat peanut butter). Today I made the 'sauce' and dipped apple in them to make diary-free carmel apples. My daughter is allergic to dairy and these came out better than I imagined!!!! I would give this recipe 10 stars if I could!

Pollo Fajitas

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2005
These were not like any fajitas I have ever had. They didn't taste anything like Mexican food. I will not be making them again.

Apple Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
I was so disappointed. I followed the recipe exactly and they were flat, greasy and no apple taste at all. I was also very surprised that there was no baking powder in these.

Roasted Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
Neither my husband nor I cared for this bread and the eight people at the dinner party I served it at said it was 'okay'. I had a lot left over that we didn't eat. I followed recipe to the letter.

Southwestern Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2007
I served these with mexican rice and they were great for dinner. I have made them twice and the first time I used egg roll wrappers and they turned out just okay. The second time a used flour tortillas and they were much better. They also freeze well, too.

Cheese Soup III

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2007
Tasted okay, but very, very watery. I would add another potato to thicken it. I also ended up adding some sour cream after it was done to make it a bit more creamy. Very fast to make though.

Meatball Sandwich

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
I used 2 lbs. of beef and made 40 meatballs. I was only looking for a meatball recipe so I did not make sandwiches out of these. The meatballs were very good though.

Kay's Shortbread

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
This was my first time making shortbread so the disappointing results may be my fault. I wasn't sure how to mix the butter in so I first tried to cut it in with a fork (kind of like a pie crust). Then I gave up and mixed it with my fingers and that worked fairly well. I doubled the recipe and pressed the dough into a rectangle and cut it into bars. I did get 35 bars that were about 1x3 inches and about 1/2 inch thick. I baked for 20 minutes and that was just enough. I did forget to add the white sugar to the top and I definitely missed it. This was only my first attempt so I will definitely try again sometime.
