Delicious Avocado Egg Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
This recipe is delicious and healthy. The fat in the avocado is the "good cholesterol", which certainly beats the "bad cholesterol" in mayonnaise. Since I changed to olive oil almost exclusively, and I eat at least 4 avocados a week, my cholesterol medication has been a thing of the past. They really mean it when the commercial says "Eat more avocados". My husband and I like our foods salted "differently", so I make this spread with no salt and we each salt our sandwiches the way we prefer. Also, I think the amount of mustard is perfect, but we both really LIKE mustard. I can imagine those who don't would think the amount of mustard should be adjusted down. But, I feel that without any changes, this egg salad ROCKS!

Decadent Turtle Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2012
I made this pie for a bar-b-que and it was just wonderful. I think those who had trouble with the filling not setting might have made one or more of these mistakes: 1 - Use only Sweetened Condensed Milk made with WHOLE MILK ONLY 2 - Only ORIGINAL cream cheese will work, don't try to save calories or fat content here! 3 - The SOFTENED cream cheese (remove from refrigerator AT LEAST 3 HOURS BEFORE USING IT) and the Sweetened Condensed Milk MUST BE WHIPPED with an ELECTRIC MIXER on HIGH for the FULL 8 MINUTES required in the recipe. This is one of those unforgiving recipes. You will be punished if you don't follow the directions EXACTLY AS THEY ARE WRITTEN! Please try it again if you had a bad experience the first time. This is just DECADENT!
