Golden Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
Tasted better than anything I've had in a restaurant. I used new potatoes and a great tasting smoked ham - minced instead of chopped. I added a bit of butter and some green onions, and I used Velveeta Queso Blanco shreds for the cheese. Even though my husband prefers my old-fashioned potato soup, this is my new favorite!

Lettuce with Buttermilk Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2007
Very tasty dressing. I used 1/2 the sugar and 1/2 the vinegar (balsamic) due to personal preference and added a dash of dill weed and 1 tsp parm cheese. I had never thought about using a coleslaw-type dressing on lettuce, and it was very refreshing and provided a nice taste contrast to Dad's Best Burgers and Au Gratin Potatoes II, both from this site. Thanks for sharing, Jean.

Pesto

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
I toasted some almonds in place of the pine nuts and added lemon juice per the suggestion of IMVINTAGE (whose photo of the recipe is what attracted me to it!)This was quite delicious over Really Creamy Fettuccine Alfredo, from this website, and spread on some garlic toast--double whammy!

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
These were easy to make and a big hit at a church reception.I left out the 9 cookies to crush for crumbs and drizzled white chocolate over the tops instead. My dough yielded 40 balls.

Candied Carrots

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2006
Delicious and versatile. I added a can of rinsed and drained Italian green beans, so to make it a little less sweet, I used 2 T brown sugar, a squirt of soy sauce, and a splash of balsamic vinegar. For just carrots, though, I would not change the recipe.

Pineapple Mojo Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2006
We loved this cake. I used a butter recipe yellow cake mix and followed the suggestion of PPK and upped the cinnamon to 1 tsp. The is the first time I've put cinnamon in a pineapple upside-down cake, and I love it. My Mom, who is recovering from surgery, ate with gusto for the first time tonight and declared it the best pineapple upside-down cake ever. Thanks for a delicious & easy recipe, Jodie.

Rachel's Wasabi Cocktail Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2007
My first time using wasabi, and I found out that I love it! The recipe is perfect as is, but after mixing up the sauce, I tripled the wasabi! I will make a double batch of this for a family party this weekend when I make a crab dip. Thanks for sharing, Rachel!

Cranberry Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2006
I used part white/WW flour, added a 1/2 cup of white sugar, and used 1/2 cup of oil instead of 1/3 cup, then used Juliana's suggestion of 2 eggs. I had some leftover Pear Honey Cranberry Sauce from this site, so I used that instead of the canned variety. It may not have ended up as low fat as intended, but it was delicious. Nice texture, moist, and not too sweet, even with my addition of sugar.

Spiced D'Anjou Pear Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
I halved the recipe and used canned pears, which I finely diced. I will cut back a little on the ginger next time and definitely cut the salt by half. I prefer other pear bread recipes that don't mask the pear flavor, but this bread is moist and delicious, very much like a spicy gingerbread. Would make an excellent giveaway bread for the holidays.

Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2006
It's Fall, and I was in the mood for pumpkin pie but wanted something light, and this dessert fit the bill. It is so good--my family loved it! It's creamy and very delicately spiced and still has that wonderful pumpkin flavor. In place of the orange juice, I used maple syrup. To serve I drizzled hershey's new Dulce de Leche syrup over it and the flavor combo was amazing. Thank you for an excellent recipe Nancy--it is a great year-round dessert & would be perfect for Thanksgiving!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2007
Might as well add my 5-star rating to the legion of those who have already discovered this wonderful recipe! Truly the best muffins I've ever made--moist, very banana-y, and tender. I subbed brown sugar for white, and like JMCClark added 1 teaspoon vanilla. I got 12 muffins and only baked 15 minutes. Outstanding!

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2007
I served this cake as we sat down to watch a movie. I didn't hear the first several minutes of the movie because my Mom was raving so much about the cake! Hubby loved it too. It was light and tender and the kind you like to mash your fork around the plate to get every crumb. I used Creamy Cream Cheese Frosting as the filling and a vanilla butter cream cheese icing. This is great cake!

Chicago Dog Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2007
I used regular wieners; added FF mayo to make the dressing somewhat like a coleslaw dressing--cut back on the mustard. Used coleslaw mix and dill & sweet pickle relishes. Randy really liked it.

Tomato Bacon Grilled Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2006
We have grilled cheese (GCs) at least 3 or 4 times a month, and I've added tomato before but never thought about adding bacon. I used some thick sliced bacon that I had baked with brown sugar sprinkled over the top. I spread a little mayonnaise on the bread, added cojack cheese, tomato slices and the salty/sweet bacon, then grilled it with butter. It was almost like a bacon cheeseburger--delicious--thanks for a great idea.

Hot Fudge Sauce II

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
Although I modified the recipe by using bittersweet chocolate chips, brown sugar, and half & half, it made a smooth, chocolatey, just-thick-enough sauce--perfect for our vanilla bean ice cream. Thanks for sharing your Mom's recipe, Erin, and I'd be interested in your recipe for "Eskimo Pie Delight"!

Pecan Pear Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
I made this as a cake in an 8 X 3 cake pan, and we loved it. A little like apple cake in texture but a more delicate taste. The cardamom is the perfect touch--it really makes the cake. I used 2 Bosc pears, and the only change I made was to use plain yogurt instead of sour cream. I will definitely include this excellent recipe in my holiday bread baking!

Carolyn's Orange Rolls

Reviewed: May 24, 2007
These rolls are so delicious. The delicate orange flavor makes a nice counterpoint to the richness of the buttery dough. Almost like eating cotton candy, they are so tender! I iced them with the Orange Cream Cheese Frosting, from this website, and they are irresistible. I will also use this recipe for cinnamon rolls and dinner rolls. Outstanding!

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
This was delicious. The only adjustment I made was to use Rotel in place of the salsa. My husband is not a big spanish rice fan, and he had two helpings!Wonderful recipe, and I thought reviewer Karen H gave some very helpful tips. Thanks for sharing your great recipe, ilovetocook!

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
My husband said this tasted like restaurant dressing. I used fresh chives and dill, and threw in some fresh rosemary too. Subbed FF mayo for half the mayonnaise and light sour cream. I added milk till it was the right consistency for us. I think this will become a versatile recipe for us--I have no desire to buy commercial dressing again!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2006
Update: 7/30/06--the day after I first made these I tried them again using a full cup brown sugar and 1/4 t salt; I added the nuts, and since I only had 1/2 cup choc chips, I chopped up a bar of German sweet chocolate & added that; I used french vanilla pudding mix. Result: they are even better--now they are perfect. ***Original review 7/29/06: I liked the appearance and soft interior of this cookie; a nice change from the flatter, chewy standard. The flavor is surprisingly not too sweet. Delicous fresh out of the oven and even better as they sit. I left out the nuts, and the only thing I will add next time will be a pinch of salt. I would still be eating them if my company hadn't taken home the leftovers.
