Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
My father made the world's best pumpkin pie! Our family would salivate at the thought of a big piece at the end of our holiday meal. We all came to find out after he died that all he did was used the Libby "Famous Pumpkin Pie" recipe - with his special touch....... a dash of vanilla. He told people it was an old family recipe he could never divulge. Dad was quite the character, and dearly missed. But somehow when I now make this recipe I feel him standing there with me. Thank you Libby for that oh-so-special memory!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2007
This recipe is YUMMY and very versatile. I used this to make stirfry chinese veggies with tofu ande udon noodles. This was fantastic! I had originally intended to use this for teriyaki chicken wings, but Thought I would try this with the stirfry inst4ead. I had everythihng in the house except cider vinegar, so I used rice vinegar with a bit more garlic and ginger. The recipe was a bit sweet, but perfect after I added a dab of Wasabi. Now I can't wait ti make this on chicken or beef.......Thanks Marian! Definitely a keeper.

Bachelor's Creamy Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2004
WOW, this recipe is great. I was looking for a way to use up some canned pumpkin and thought soup would be an unusual choice. Saw this recipe and thought that it was quick and easy - so I decided to use it. Mind you, I have only had pumpkin soup once and it was from some gourmet recipe that required fresh pumpkin and a long list of ingredients. This simple recipe was much better than that one. I made it exactly as called for and found that it was a wee bit bland, although I could definitely taste the pumkin and only used enough water to get it to the right consistancy. So as several reviewers suggested, I spiced it up. I added onion 1 tsp onion powder, 1 Tbs. sugar, 1 Tbs. curry powder - and 2 tsp of a Morrocan spice blend (cumin, paprika, cinnamon, corriander, ginger) I had left over from another recipe. YUM! This was total perfection! Now we like things savory, so that you may want to adjust the amounts, but this is delicious and definitely a keeper. My cream of potato soup (Campbells) had chunks of potatoes, so I purred it with a stick blender before serving. Thanks, Katherine, for the wonderfully easy recipe. There is a bit left over - and it is MINE.

The Best Chicken Salad Ever

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2004
YUM! Finding a chicken salad recipe as versatile as this is great. In its original form, it is great for sandwiches (although I too used mayo instead of "salad dressing"). I also experimented with using some and making a chicken pasta salad. To the spread I added: 1/2 green and 1/2 red bell peppers, wasabi mayo for creamy salad dressing, 1/2-3/4 cup finely shredded cheese and added this to cooked rotini pasta. Was this ever good! There is something about the coleslaw dressing that gives it such a great "sweet twang". Thanks so much, Richard, for sharing this great recipe with so many possibilities.

Mediterranean Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2004
Looking for a new way to make salmon, and this one turned out well. I omitted cilantro because I do not like it, but added a bit of rosemary and thyme in its place. Friend suggested adding a bit of diced tomato and chopped ripe olives to mixture - which I will do the next time I make this. Served with rice pilaf and steamed spinach for a quick and easy "healthy" dinner. Thanks, Ariel101.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2004
Yet another recipe from this site tht I crave! Made this exactly as written (well OK, I used lemon juice and ground pepper separately) on the Foreman grill. YUMMY! I diod as others had suggested and saved the leftover marinade for extra cooking and thickening and drizzled the "sauce" over fresh spinich to wilt it and served salmon on top. TO DIE FOR! Then I decided to experiment by tweaking the recipe slightly. I took out the pepper, left in everything else and added minced fresh ginger. I then sliced up some bok choy and sauteed it a bit to just get it slightly softened. Again I took the "sauce" and drizzled it over and the salmon on top. YUM YUM YUM!!! Both ways are a big hit in this family - even the cat comes around to get some. LOL THANKS, TINA.

Authentic Thousand Island Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2004
I must concur with all the other reviewers. This dressing is wonderful! I used to love 1000 Islnd, but found that over the years the ready made stuff has bvecome too sweet or cloyingly sour. And what is up with the color. So when I ran out of all other dressings at home and saw I had all of the ingtreds to make this, I decided to see how it came out. Well, I really love this! Mine came out slightly pinkish - from the red peppers I guess, The taste is perfect, and even before I had the salad made I was dipping veggies into it. Only additions were salt. a smidge onion powder (1 tsp.) and black pepper. Thanks, Local 1000 Islander!

Home Fries

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2004
I used this as a side dish to accompany simple grilled chicken, and boy was it ever a winner. I love home fried potatoes and the idea of putting them together with the broccoli slaw mix was fine with me because I love it too. Only addtition was that I used 4 medium russet potatoes. I will make this all the time now for any meal. YUMMY! Thanks Mann's!

Mushroom Blue Cheese Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2004
Yum! Yum! Yum! This is a great burger - turkey or otherwise. Only change I made was to use worchestershire sauce instead of soy and added a bit more cheese to the mixture. Served on toasted buns with tomato slices and additional bleu cheese dressing for those who wanted more. Have also varied the recipe by adding herbed feta cheese instead of bleu and serving in a pita with cucumber sauce. Thanks so much for the recipe, Trish, It is a big favorite at our house!

Sesame Udon Noodles

Reviewed: May 30, 2004
YUM! I used peapods instead of snap peas (bought the wrong ones) ,added about 1/3 of a large cucumber cut into thin matchstick pieces and some shredded carrot. Guess you could really use any vegetables that you would put into a stirfry. Next time I will add some leftover chicken or shrimp. Thanks for the recipe, Baja!

Cousin David's Slow Cooker Brisket

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2004
I have eaten brisket made this way since I was a little girl. The only thing my family did was add sliced mushrooms to the rest of the ingrediets. On Jewish holidays Mom would add a kishke to cook in the pot during the last hour or so. YUMMY! Your Cousin's legacy certainly lives on. Also just a note to you not familiar with brisket. Brisket and corned beef are not the same thing, although a corned beef is made out of a brisket of beef. Corned beef has been cured, or "pickled" before it is cooked - and has a very distinct taste all its own. The Guiness rcipe on this site is wonderful for corned beef. However the BRISKET called for here is just the plain cut of beef. I can't imagine what a horrible mess this recipe would be if you used a corned beef............

Chicken Curry Croissants

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2004
Hey Cookin' Cowgirls! This is a delicious sandwich - just like the one they prepare at the gourmet sandwich shop down the block. You can really make it your own depending on what kind of chutney you use (I like peach or mango), and how hot you want it. Good tip of toasting the curry powder before adding he oil to saute the chicken breast. Makes the flavor even better. All I did was add maybe a clove of minced garlic - but otherwise it was good without any tampering. Now I don't have to spend the big bucks for this sandwich down the street......... LOL

Diane's Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2004
Super Yummy! The first time I made it, I followed the recipe exactly and WOW I was hooked. The second time I made it, I had no fresh potatoes in the house so I used (horrors) instant that I keep on hand for emergencies. I also used some "sweet meat" given to me by a neighbor instead of the bacon, and threw in some garlic. I don't know what I was thinking because I topped it with a bit of finely shredded Cheddar cheese. Well this served as my main dish that night - and I could have eaten the whole pot. Definitely a keeper - and not just for St. Paddy's Day. Thanks, Diane!

Veggie Ranch Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2004
Wow! This is great pizza! Never would have thought it with the ranch dressing. Have made this twice......first time I followed the recipe exactly but used a garlic ranch dressing as sauce. Great! The garlic added a nice flavor. The second time I used Ragu light alfredo sauce as a base cause I was craving the pizza and was out of ranch dressing. This was equally as great! Big hit at my house. Love all the cheese too! Thanks, Darlene - this is definitely a favorite.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2004
This recipe is perfect as is for excellent appetizers. My family has been making these exactly this way for many years to great reviews. Nowadays if we have time we make the meatballs - if not we use the frozen variety. No one really knows or cares. And these are not just for appetizers anymore. We also love these with mashed potatoes and boiled cabbage on the side. Thanks, Tammy for a great recipe!

Mexican Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2003
Very quick and easy recipe - nothing gourmet, but very tasty too. I too was looking for a recipe for dinner that would have the things I had in the house already (its getting cold in the Midwest and I was not in a mood to shop), and this fit the bill perfectly. The only change I made was not to ad the green chilies - only because my salsa and Nacho cheese dip were spicy enough (and I didn't have them in the house.) Will definitely make again......... Thanks Pat for the recipe!

Leah's Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2003
Leah, this soup brings back many wonderful memories of family and holiday gatherings. It is very similar to my mother's except for the Dill - which adds a nice touch. I will be making this for the Holidays tonight with both noodles and matzah balls added, as is our family tradition. Thank you again for such a great recipe.
