Cranberry Jell-O® Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2013
I used strawberry jello and only added a small amount of additional sugar. I like the mandarin oranges whole so I ground up the pineapple instead. This reminds me of a salad my mother used to make. Thanks!

Mini Crescent Roll Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2013
I think an entire package dry onion soup mix is too much for 1/2 pound of ground beef. Otherwise these are terrific. I added a small amount of dill relish on top of the burger mixture. Thanks!

Pizza Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2013
These were okay but seemed bland. I don't think there's enough cheese or pepperoni in them. I accidentally used all the garlic powder inside the biscuits but that didn't even help boost the flavor. I think these would be great with a few minor tweaks.

Sandy's Sweet Slow Cooker Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2013
Very good! I had very little brown sugar (probably about 1/4 cup or less) so that is all I used and it was fine. I don't think I would want it much sweeter. I had frozen smoked sausage and was going to be in and out all day so I went ahead and added it at the beginning. Served with homemade potato salad it was a heavenly meal!

Chicken Baseballs

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2013
I used baked chicken breasts that had been breaded with bread crumbs seasoned with Italian Seasoning. I think the Italian Seasoning made the difference, otherwise they would have been very bland. Some dry ranch dressing would definitely be a good choice if using plain chicken. I really loved these. Husband poured on hot sauce but said they were good. I separated the crescents into triangle to make individual pouches. Very good and easy and I will make these again.

Easy Alfredo Sauce III

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2013
I halved the recipe and tempered the egg yolk and still got clumpy sauce. I think because I used real Parmesan and it is a hard cheese, it never really melts. The sauce never thickened for me. I ended up using a small amount of flour mixed with water to make it thicken. I added some garlic salt with parsley which boosted the flavor. I enjoyed this for lunch but doubt that I'll make it again.

Sweet Potato Zucchini Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2013
I wanted to like this recipe but I could tell by looking at it there are so many things wrong. Saying to add one sweet potato and one zucchini shredded can lead to so many different results. An actual measurement of mashed sweet potato and shredded zucchini would be much more helpful. I added approximately one cup of mashed sweet potato (that I had microwaved the day before) and about 1 cup of shredded zucchini. When the ingredients were all mixed together, the batter was far too thin as compared to other muffins I've made before. I added about 1/4 cup of old fashioned oats to try to soak up some of the liquid. I ended up with 12 muffins which stuck to the liners and a small mini loaf. The texture of the final product is comparable to a sponge. They are very sweet. I hope that my husband's coworkers who will eat anything will eat these. Sorry, I won't make these again.

Creamy Bacon Cheddar Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2013
I cut the recipe in half. I used shredded cheddar and colby jack cheese. The "cheese sauce" turned into a big clump and I had to add more cream (half and half) to make it anywhere near sauce like. Then when it cooled it was nearly solid. I added the bacon, milk and mayonnaise and used my immersion blender to blend it together. There are still lumps of cheese sauce visible. I am not fond of this kind of salad dressing but my husband is so he'll be eating it. We'll see what he thinks of it.

Ashley's Different Chicken Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2013
We weren't a fan. It really tasted like Worcestershire Sauce to me. Husband asked to go back to our old recipe. Sorry, but we won't be making this again.

Nutty Oatmeal Apricot Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2013
I followed the recipe including the directions in the notes about how to without a food processor. I used homemade strawberry preserves because that's what I had on hand. The bars didn't really hold together and are very soft. I think I'll keep looking for a similar recipe that works out better. Thanks.

Sweet Potato Casserole with Pecans

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2013
I reduced the recipe down to use one potato and I used one whole egg since quartering the recipe meant that it called for 3/4 of an egg. I wrapped my sweet potato in foil and baked it since that tends to make it sweeter than boiling. There is WAY too much sugar in this recipe. Wow! I don't think the sugar in the potatoes is necessary. If I make this again, it will be with at least that change.

No Guilt Spiced Mixed Nuts

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2013
Made these at the last minute for a family party and they were a HUGE hit. Delicious! I did use regular brown sugar and white sugar as I don't keep sugar substitutes around. Thanks!

Orange Carrot Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2013
This is similar to a dish that I remember from my childhood. I am trying to make recipes that use things I already have in my kitchen and this fit the bill. I did sub mandarin oranges instead of fruit cocktail. I also used regular mayo. I was skeptical about the addition of mayo and vinegar but I don't think you could taste either. The salad itself was a little less sweet than your normal gelatin salad which is a positive in my book. We both enjoyed this very much and I will be making it again.

Brie's Spicy Sweet Tangy Barbecue Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2013
This recipe lives up to it's title. It is spicy, sweet and tangy. It is easy to make and very good. I halved the recipe as I only had a small amount of cooked chicken breast to use up and mixed this sauce in with to make chicken barbecue for dinner. I think the recipe needs some Worcestershire but that is entirely my personal preference. I will be making this again. Thanks!

Twice Baked Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2013
I cut this down to one serving and altered just a few ingredients to use what I had on hand. I don't believe the changes altered the outcome of the recipe. I used one Russet baking potato which I microwaved. I only had some leftover french onion dip (a mixture of sour cream and onion soup mix) which I used in place of the sour cream. I layered half the potato which was cut in hunks into the bottom of a small Pyrex baking dish, spread on some dip, covered with a little of both types of cheeses, sprinkled with chopped cooked bacon and sprinkled with salt and pepper. Then repeated those layers. I baked at the recommended temperature and time. Chopped green onion went on top after baking. This was very good and a different way to eat a baked potato and the toppings that I would normally eat with it. Thanks!

Italian Zucchini Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2013
Wow this has too much black pepper! Even my husband who dumps black pepper on everything thought it was too much. I halved the recipe but used the whole can of tomato soup. The soup was good except for the pepper issue. I quartered the zucchini slices because I thought whole slices would be awkward to eat. At first I thought the extra sugar was unnecessary but added some after tasting it initially. I also added some dried basil just for my own preference. I'm not a real fan of vegetable soup but trying to eat healthy and I will make this again. Thanks!

Delicious Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2013
Read the reviews and you can tell this recipe needs serious tweaking. I really wanted to make an apple crisp where the base was more like apple pie filling and not just sliced apples. So I used this as a basis. I only had three Granny Smith apples so I cut the recipe in one third but used a whole tablespoon of cornstarch and 3/4 c of water. Next time I will use apple juice. I didn't add the cinnamon until the apples were done cooking and also added about 1/2 t of nutmeg (fresh ground). Looking at the measurements for one third of the topping, I decided it didn't look like enough so I used one half the recipe and even then it wasn't enough. Overall it is a good base recipe and the end result was very good. But made as is, it wouldn't have been.

Baked Macaroni and Cheese with Tomato

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2013
Definitely not your traditional mac and cheese. I can see this as a great recipe for a family with children that want a cheap/fast meal. I thought it was edible but not something I'll make again. I used a mixture of several cheeses that I had little bits of including mild cheddar, colby jack and blue. I also added a pinch of red pepper flakes which I felt needed to be included to keep it from being bland. Instead of the bread crumbs and butter I used some crushed Cheezits. Overall it was a decent comfort food but not something I care to repeat. Thanks.

Shrimp and Pasta Shell Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2013
We really enjoyed this salad. I halved the recipe and two of us nearly ate all of it for dinner. I followed another's suggestion and instead of ketchup and dill I subbed cocktail sauce. I wish I'd added peas too but will next time. I used frozen cooked shrimp which I cut into bite sized pieces. Delicious! I will be making this again.

Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2013
Because of the only other review, I decided to add more peanut butter. Somehow, I managed to get distracted and in the end added 3/4 c of peanut butter instead of 2 T plus a little more. That was my fault. I only had 1 1/2 c of banana so I think the extra peanut butter helped with that. I also had no ww bread flour or ww pastry flour so I used 1 c of white cake flour and 1 c of regular ww flour but the recipe notes said that was okay for this recipe. I also used regular crunchy peanut butter. The batter seemed the right consistency going in the oven and smelled good. It baked almost done in 60 minutes but since the middle was still gooey, I did as I always do with quick breads and turned off the oven and let it sit in there for a while to finish in the middle. This did get the edges a little over done but the middle was cooked when I cut it. Most of this went to work with the husband this morning for his coworkers. I would say this is a decent banana bread but I doubt that I'd make it again.
