Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2005
Very good! I made this recipe as listed except for using 1 c white sugar and 1/2 c brown sugar as opposed to all white. I also added mini chocolate chips. They are great without frosting but also delightful with a little cream cheese icing drizzled on top. I think my batch made 40 cookies. I will be keeping this recipe, sharing it with friends and making them throughout the year. Many, many thanks!

Pesto Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
Yum! I read all of the previous reviews and came up with my on little version of these burgers, and they were quite tasty. I mixed 1 T of pesto, a few shakes of garlic powder and about 3 T of diced red onion to the turkey. It made four burgers that I broiled about six minutes on each side. I ate this turkey burger on a whole wheat bun with just a tiny bit of mayonnaise, mustard and ketchup in addition to a large leaf of Romaine lettuce, a slice of red onion and a few small banana peppers. Next time I'll be sure to have some slices of cheddar cheese on hand to melt on top. I served the burgers with a baked bean dish. So tasty! Thank you!

Pat's Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
This is a basic recipe that I used to fill in for a misplaced favorite. Although these didn't turn out as moist as my usual ones, I was pleased with the simplicity of the ingredients and directions. I did add extra blueberries and I sprinkled each muffin with a cinnamon/sugar mixture prior to baking. The batch made exactly 12 muffins and I received compliments from co-workers at our potluck. I DO recommend this recipe. Thanks!

Best Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2013
After picking 12 pounds of blueberries yesterday, I was looking for some new ways to use them and this crumble caught my eye! I gave this recipe a try this afternoon and am very pleased with the results. I followed the recipe almost exactly with the exception of adding one teaspoon of vanilla to the egg/butter/sugar/milk mixture. I also added extra cinnamon to the crumble part and baked it for 45 minutes. I don't own a springform pan, so I baked this in a bundt pan instead. I inverted the bundt pan onto a wire cooling rack within minutes of pulling it out of the oven, let it cool for about 20 minutes, then inverted it onto a plate so the crunchy crumble would be on the top. This recipe is a quick, easy, delicious keeper! Thank you, Cristina! :)

Calico Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2004
I found this recipe in an attempt to replace a misplaced family favorite we called "Carnival Beans." This one was very close to our recipe and only required a few changes to fit the taste we remember. I omitted the bacon, beef and celery. I increased the dried mustard to one tablespoon. I swapped the small can of pork-n-beans for a large can of vegetarian baked beans. Not that it makes much of a difference, but I used apple cider vingear instead of white. I also added one small can of chili beans. Everyone was pleased with the outcome! Thanks, Kathy!

Spicy Black Bean Potato Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
A great variation of an old favorite! Changes I made: used 10 potatoes, left the peels on and diced them before cooking; skipped the bacon, jalapenos, salt and pepper; doubled the green onion and cajun seasoning; used only about 3/4 cup lowfat mayo. I was skeptical of the green peppers, but ended up really enjoying them. My boyfriend added canned jalapenos to his serving but was diappointed with them. Next time he'll try fresh instead. We both agree that we want to try adding extra mustard and possibly add some diced celery and olives next time.

Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2013
I have made these muffins twice within the last week, and everyone who has tried them has been as pleased as I am! I appreciate how quick and easy they are to make, as well as how delicious they taste. Changes I made: 1/2 cup of applesauce instead of oil; 1 c brown sugar + 1/2 c white sugar instead of 2 c white sugar; no salt; no streusel topping. I used four medium Honeycrisp apples and ended up with 24 muffins. I plan on making these muffins over and over again. Thank you SO much, JES55!

Valentino's Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2013
Quick, easy and tasty! Following the recommendation of someone else, I baked the crust alone for 10 minutes on the bottom rack at 500 degrees before topping and baking the pizza for another 15 on the middle rack. Toppings I used: pizza sauce mixed with pesto, diced garlic and parmesan cheese, onion, green pepper, orange pepper, yellow pepper, turkey bacon, olives, mushrooms, spinach, pineapple, cheese, tomato. Yum!

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2005
I have tried several banana muffin recipes and these are BY FAR the best! They are very easy to make and I made only a few modifications: eliminated the salt, used an extra banana, added one teaspoon of vanilla and a few shakes of cinnamon. Next time I will double the batch because this first group of 12 was gone in a hurry! Many thanks, Abi :)

Seasoned Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2004
I've made turkey burgers twice based on this recipe. The first time I added just the onion soup packet and soy sauce to 1 lb. of extra lean turkey and they seemed strange. I just cleaned up leftovers from my second adventure and blended the same amount/type of turkey with only the onion soup packet this time and was delighted with the results! One pound of turkey made four large burgers that were served on onion buns along with a baked bean dish! Yum! I'm giving this recipe four stars only because it has ingredients that I don't feel are necessary...

Chicken, Stuffing and Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2003
Doubled...Used chicken stuffing mix, healthy request soup and a quart of home-canned green beans. Omitted salt and pepper. Only used 1/4 cup of cheese on top but won't use any next time. Added diced apple to the stuffing. It is a bit salty so I'll be looking for ways to change that in the future. Thanks, Cathy....This one is a keeper! EDIT: Wanted to add that I made this again tonight with eight cups of fresh snipped green beans, two packages of stuffing, two cans of soup and cubed ham...a nice change from the chicken! :)

Bubba's Jambalaya

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2014
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

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2014
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

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2014
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!

Mango Blueberry Muffins With Coconut Streusel

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2013
I made these muffins for the first time last night and am so pleased with the results! A few changes I made: skipped adding the salt, added about 1 t of vanilla in with the eggs/sugar/butter, used 1/2 c nonfat milk with 1/2 T of lemon juice instead of buttermilk, used double the amount of brown sugar for the topping instead of white and melted the butter for the topping before stirring it into the crumble mixture. I was able to make 14 regular muffins out of this batch. Someone mentioned that they're not tasty hot, but I have to disagree! Thanks for this recipe, geranium. I'll definitely be making these muffins many times in the future!

Mushroom Soup Without Cream

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
I used this recipe as a base for a soup cooking experiment on a stormy day. Changes I made: - Skipped the butter, leeks and salt. - Used low sodium chicken broth. - Didn't measure any veggies...just chopped and tossed in three celery stalks, one large yellow onion, a bunch of carrots and mushrooms and about 1/2 of a green cabbage. - Added a few shakes of garlic powder and pepper and 1/8 t of dried thyme. - Added one box of Farmhouse long grain and wild rice (prepared in the microwave as directed then stirred in). - Added one packet of onion soup mix. I did garnish our bowls with green onions. My boyfriend added Sriracha for additional flavor. We enjoyed our new tasty soup with French bread. :)

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2006
This is a simple recipe that tastes great. I did add cinnamon, vanilla and cloves to the batter to spice it up a bit, and I didn't measure the bananas...just used six medium-sized brown ones! I got one solid loaf that tasted better today than it did yesterday when I baked it. It did take 70 minutes in the oven to be done all the way though...Thanks!
