Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
These are wonderful! My husband and daughter really enjoyed them and I can see this as a weekday morning staple in our home. Made some minor changes based on what i had in the house: (1) subbed applesauce for oil, (2) cut brown sugar down to 1/2 cup and will reduce even more next time, (3) left out vanilla extract (4) added one packet of 'strawberries and cream' instant oatmeal for slight berry flavor, (5) brushed top with honey and returned to oven for the last 5 minutes. [Note: did a second batch because the first disappeared in a day, and used peanut butter, raisins and walnuts - delicious!!] My husband thought these were absolutely amazing and asked me to make them again for him to take to work as a mid-morning snack.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
Wonderful recipe! We had the crockpot version with evaporated milk listed below and my daughter who doesn't like soup LOVED it. My husband said that it was restaurant quality. Only addition was a bag of frozen broccoli/cauliflower/carrot mix and it added some much needed color and texture. I would probably use 2 bags of frozen veggies next time. We'll definitely make this recipe again!

Baked Moist and Savory Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
This recipe got good reviews at our Christmas dinner, but I modified it quite a bit based on what I had on hand. Diced 3 stalks celery and one onion and let it simmer with 4.5 cups of water and 2 T butter until soft. Immediately mixed it with three 6 ounce boxes of stuffing mix, transferred to baking dish and baked it for 15 minutes @ 400 degrees. Wonderful and moist! I followed the directions on the box for the water measurement (1.5 cups per box) It really didn't need to be baked and could have been served immediately. Nice addition to jazz up plain stuffing!

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
Used a package of garlic croutons (crushed) instead of crackers and it was delicious. Great recipe!

Boiled Fruitcake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
I've never been a big fruitcake fan, but this was delicious! I made it with a few variations: * Dried cranberries marinated in vodka for a few days until fully re-hydrated * Raisins marinated in water until fully rehydrated * Two large apples, diced * Marinated the typical neon dried fruit blend for fruitcakes in vodka for a few days until re-hydrated * Walnuts and pecans because I had them on hand * Used cooking spray on cake pan and it came out fine -- no parchment or newspaper needed. I was trying to get a more natural tasting fruitcake and would probably add more apples/cranberries and decrease the neon fruitcake blend next time. Rum taste was very mild and added a nice warm undertone. This cake would probably be excellent with just apple pieces and I may try that next time.

Old Settlers' Baked Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
This recipe smells heavenly while cooking and is something I'll make again. Instead of white sugar, I used molasses. I also cooked this in my crockpot and made the mistake of adding the ketchup at the beginning (tomatoes make the beans stay hard) so it took a lot longer to cook. 6 hours on low and another 6 hours on high. It was worth the wait!

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
Great alternative to regular burgers! I omitted the Thai chili sauce (didn't have any) and added a packet of Lipton Onion Soup mix. We ate them without a bun and topped with salsa and sour cream. I'll definately make these again.

Greek Lentil Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
Wonderful salad! I made this while we were on vacation and ate it at almost every meal. I love lentils, but had not found a "wow" recipe in which to use them until this one. I've made it several times since and will say that the choice of dressing really makes a difference. I'd recommend Ken's Healthy Options Olive Oil and Vinegar, or one of the other higher end dressings. I also added olives and green onions and used as a dip with pita triangles.

Italian Meatball Sandwich Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
This was a very good recipe and one that I would make again. I used lowfat cottage cheese instead of mayonnaise, and pre-made organic turkey meatballs instead of ground beef.

Marinated Black-Eyed Pea Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
This was a wonderful addition to our New Year's lunch and a creative way to serve black-eyed peas. Instead of using it as a salad, we served it as an appetizer with tortilla chips. My brother returned to our house later in the day to see if we had any left -- it was that good! To make it a little healthier, I substituted a cup of lowfat italian dressing in lieu of the olive oil and vinegars and omitted the bacon. Also substituted fresh cilantro for the parsley because that is what I had on hand. This recipe gets better over time, so plan to make it at least 24 hours in advance.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
Great recipe! I made this on New Year's Day with collards, black-eyed peas, sweet potato sticks and ham and it was a big hit with our guests. Probably not something I would make on a regular basis due to the amount of butter, but it will definately be an annual treat.

Baked Sweet Potato Sticks

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
Yummy recipe! I made these for a family lunch on New Year's day and the garlic/onion/salt/pepper version was the hands-down favorite. I was wary of trying that combination on sweet potatoes, but it was tasty. Made great left-overs too.

Tasty Collard Greens

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
I've always been nervous about attempting collard greens, but this recipe was easy and delicious! Instead of fresh greens, I used frozen and cooked in a crockpot on low for 10 hours. It was flavorful and made a great addition to the bean and vegetable soup we made the next day.

Peanut Butter Cocoa No-Bake Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
We made this recipe last night and it was a huge hit -- tasted just like I remember from elementary school! I did make a few modifications because we didn't have some of the ingredients. I used 3 squares of baker's unsweetened chocolate instead of cocoa, and 1 cup of extra chunky peanut butter since we didn't have peanuts. We also used brown sugar instead of white sugar, and I'll probably reduce it to 1 cup next time. It is very rich and flavorful. Instead of individual cookies, we put the mixture into an 8 x 8 baking dish and cut it into bars when it cooled. They didn't turn out as firm as I would have liked, so I'll probably add more oats next time as others have suggested. I'm keeping this batch in the refrigerator and the coldness seems to keep them firm. Thanks for sharing!

Bean and Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2007
This is a great recipe! The taste can vary depending on your choice of beans, so keep that in mind. We used a 9-bean blend that was delicious. I was a little paranoid about ending up with crunchy beans after reading the other reviews, so I soaked the beans overnight in the crockpot on "warm" (not low). It was bubbling the next morning, but the beans were soft. I then drained the water and replaced with chicken broth, garlic powder, onions, onion powder, basil, and celery, salt and pepper. It was cooked to perfection by noon. Serve over a hearty long-grain rice and it is a complete meal. Very tasty! We generally do not eat beans as a main dish, but I could easily eat this once or twice a week. It is very filling.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2006
Very good! The only modification I made was to add one can of sauce to the pasta before layering. My husband and daughter were impressed with this dish and had seconds. This is a great recipe to prepare ahead of time and then pop in the oven right before dinnertime. I served this with salad, Focaccio bread, and a bottle of red wine for the adults. I think the secret to this recipe is the sauce -- a bland sauce will make it mediocre at best. The other ingredients don't add much taste.

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2006
I really wanted to like this recipe! I substituted whole wheat flour and it came out pretty dry. This is even after adding more water! I think it has a good foundation but needs some tweaking.

Spicy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2005
Wonderful recipe! My husband enjoyed it as well. I made a few modifications based on the other reviews -- added onion, diced tomatoes with jalepenos, diced kielbasa, and a little chili seasoning. Served with green onions and melted cheese on top. Absolutely wonderful!!

Bread Machine Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2003
These are awesome!! I feel justified in keeping my bread machine now. :) I didn't have any powdered milk, so substituted 1 and 1/4 cups skim milk in place of the water and milk powder. My husband absolutely LOVES these and requests them at least once a week. thank you!
