Seven Layer Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2003
My sister requested I make a seven layer salad for Easter this year. I looked up some on-line and decided to try this recipe. It was wonderful. I made it last weekend to test and brought it to an Easter dinner this weekend. I did change a few things. Instead of just iceburg lettuce I mixed in a package of spring greens to make it more colorful. I also used half mayonnaise and half miracle whip and added two tbsp milk to thin the dressing. I made the salad the night before and tossed it to just prior to serving. It still looked pretty and everyone got a good mixture of the salad.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
I really enjoyed this cake. I followed some of the other suggestions and substituted applesauce for a part of the oil and added a can of crushed pineapple. My family doesn't love nuts so I didn't add the pecans to the frosting. This is a keeper for me.

Holiday Peppermint Bark

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
I Love this recipe. I make it every year for Christmas. This year I purchase a package of white candy quick. Followed the package instructions on melting in the tray. I finely crushed 40 mini candy canes leaving a few little chunks mixed in the tray and poured out on wax paper. Super simple... Super Tasty

Party Punch III

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2007
I liked this recipe. I served it at a baby shower for a little girl so it was a great color. It was simple to make and worked well in my punch fountain. I also froze some of the fruit punch with orange slices to float in the fountain which kept it cool and was pretty. I thought the flavors went well together and it was a good compliment to the food since it wasn't too sweet.

Bacon Ranch Pea Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
I have made this salad a couple of times and really enjoyed it. I use the packaged real bacon pieces and try and use the more expensive ranch dressing found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. I also just rinse the frozen peas in cool water to thaw and pat dry with a paper towel to remove excess water. Last time used a package of Great Value (Walmart) frozen sweet peas and tasted great.

Orange Sherbet Salad I

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
I made this for Thanksgiving and the family enjoyed it... especially the kids. Family preference is for nothing "chunky" in the jello salad so left out the oranges and bananas and it was still delicious. I frosted with cool whip.

Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
I thought this was an OK recipe. Easy to make. We added light sour cream to our individual bowls and thought it added better flavor.

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2007
This recipe was fun and easy to make. I used vegetable flavored cream cheese to give it a little something extra. I shared this idea with many people over the holidays so they could add something special to their veggie trays.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2014
I have made this cake a number of times. I usually substitute applesauce for the oil. I have also made it with white cake mix, vanilla pudding and white chocolate morsels. I prefer to use mini morsels as when I use the bigger chips they seem to sink to the bottom of the pan. I use this when I make layered birthday cakes.

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2014
Just made this recipe for April 1st (April Fools Supper) into "cupcakes". I followed another reviewers advice and used Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs. It was very tasty. After combining all the "loaf" ingredients I divided the meat mixture into large balls and put them into a muffin pan, then spooned the glaze over each serving. I still baked for one hour and they were done perfectly. When serving the "cupcakes" I bought premade mashed potatoes (easy) and tinted it bright pink. The mashed potato "frosting" then went on the meatloaf "cupcakes". I served each on a plate with a lit candle that we all blew out after saying our dinner prayer. It was a fun and tasty meal. My 6 year old niece told me I really "April Fooled" her as she thought we were having real cupcakes for supper.

Tex-Mex Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2012
I thought it was an OK soup. Good but not really exciting. I might make it again but would add a little more spice to give it some kick.

Sharese's Spaghetti Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
I have made this twice. I add more black olives and tomatos. I will definately be keeping this recipe in my favorites. It is important to use the McCormick salad seasoning as another reviewer suggested.

Can't Leave Alone Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009

Luau Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
This is a great recipe that I will be adding to my favorites. I made it for a luau and doubled the other ingredients but tripled the sauce ingredients so I would have more for on the side to add to the white rice if needed. The only thing I changed was I put one can of bamboo shoots and one can of water chestnuts and used green, red and yellow peppers to equal two peppers for more color. I would recommend this recipe

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
I made this for a luau for 10 adults and 9 children. Used Hawaiian rolls (purchased at Walmart). I served it with coleslaw, barbecue sauce, pickles and cheese. I checked all the stores in town and could not get Hawaiian sea salt so went with regular sea salt. I might try and order the hawaiian salt on- line. We had a buffet so double the recipe of meat was plenty. I am looking forward to using the leftovers in other recipes. I would recommend this for the taste, ease of preparation and buffet friendliness. I did cut down on the salt by a 1 TBSP.

Brunch Strata

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
Great Recipe. I made it for a Mother's day brunch and it was well liked. My brother had four servings and asked to take home all the leftovers. I prepared it the night before and followed the recipe exactly accept that I don't have any 11 x 7 pans so put it into two 9 X 13 pans. I took the pans out of the refrigerator 30 minutes prior to baking and baked for 50 minutes. Next time I will watch the baking time closer because I think it was a little over cooked. Thanks for the recipe. I will be making it again.

Layered Chicken and Black Bean Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
If you are looking for a tasty Mexican dish to make a day ahead of time this is a great recipe. I followed another reviewers advice and baked the corn torillas to help them stay crispy. I thought the recipe could use a little more enchilada sauce but it got great reviews from the three different homes that I brought the casserole. Along with the casserole I brought spanish rice, refried beans and mexicorn. I also gave them lettuce, tomatoes, onions, black olives, salsa and sour cream to make a complete meal.
