Bubba's Jambalaya
I tried this recipe for the first time last night, and my husband and I both declared it a keeper from the first bite! Changes I made: turkey bacon, no ham, 1 lb chicken, turkey sausage, petite diced tomatoes, 4 c chicken broth, no beef broth, no shrimp and added some minced garlic. I was concerned about adding the rice at the end due to other reviews, but it worked out great! The stirring seems to be the key, especially within the first few minutes. The Cajun spice I use is made by Weber, and 2 t was just enough. My husband usually puts extra hot sauce on stuff, but didn't with this recipe. We agreed that it's just enough spice for us, but would probably be too much for most kids or those who don't love spicy foods, so you might want to cut back on the spice in the beginning and add more later if desired. Thanks for sharing Bubba's recipe, FORDMAN88! We love it!

Blueberry Squares
Original post of 5 stars: I tried these for the first time today and was pleased with the results! Because I don't own a food processor, I used my KitchenAid mixer to make the bottom layer and it worked out just fine. I used my 7x11 baking dish, so the bottom needed 30 minutes to bake instead of 20. I will possibly try baking it in a bigger dish next time. The only change I made to the bottom layer was to add just a shake of salt instead of the whole 1/4 t. I made the blueberry mixture just as it said to. I also made the top just as suggested, although I'm going to add cinnamon next time. I baked them for about 25 minutes and couldn't wait until they were cool to take a bite! These would definitely be good with some ice cream or Cool Whip, especially when warm! I was hesitant to bake with garbanzo beans, but now I won't be anymore. Thanks for sharing your healthy recipe, Janet! Edit with change to 2 stars: Turns out these blueberry squares were good only for the first day. After that, they turned very soggy and inedible. I ended up throwing away over half of the recipe.

Peanut Butter Cookies IX
Yum! These cookies are SO delicious! I made just a few changes: 1/2 c whole wheat flour and 1/2 c white flour, 1/2 c white sugar, 1 c peanut butter. I ended up with 2.5 dozen cookies that I rolled into small balls and flattened before baking for 13 minutes. Thank you for sharing this recipe, Ruggles! It's a keeper!
