Herbed Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2004
I omitted the lemon juice and peel, added extra minced garlic and rubbed with butter before tenting. Guests really enjoyed, said it was juicy and flavorful.

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2004
I made this in individual ramekins for our first course at Thanksgiving this year, with a little spoon of cranberry sauce, and it was quite delicious. The only change I made was to use only 1/2 the muffin mix so it would be more eggy and less bready. I would make again!

Oranged Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2004
Very nice -- I usually make the recipe on the cranberry bag but this was more flavorful and everyone enjoyed it at dinner. Just make sure you have 3 hours to simmer it so it gets thick enough.

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2004
This did not work for me at all. I used cornbread instead of dry bread cubes, maybe that was the problem, but it was totally mushy despite using only one can of broth and I will not make again. It did not have a nice stuffing texture and I would not serve it to guests. Sorry, I was really excited to try it!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2004
These were a hit at my husband's office, but I did not care for the texture. I'll keep the recipe for when I need a giant batch though, since everyone but me liked them.

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2004
We like these. I substitute cornmeal for the flour and sometimes add green onions or a half-can of creamed corn for variety. Delicious!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2004
This was quick and easy, and my husband really liked it. I halved the recipe and baked it in an 8x5 dish -- it looked like a little cake instead of a loaf but turned out fine. We'll make again.

Italian Stuffed Zucchini

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2004
Sorry, I did not like this at all. The filling was very bland. Then again maybe I am just sick sick sick of zucchini.

BUSH'S® Zesty Black Bean Quesadillas With Cilantro Sour Cream

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2004
I thought these were good. I used pepperjack instead of mozz. and feta, and added a little canned corn on top of the beans. Extremely fast to make and handy for a weeknight dinner.

Coconut Cream Pie I

Reviewed: May 10, 2004
What a great little pie! I used a ready-made graham crust and fat-free coolwhip; also could not find a 5 oz pudding so used one 3.4 oz of coconut cream flavor instant and a few shakes of lemon instant and it was fine. Also toasted 1/2c of coconut for top. Lots of compliments, will make again. Thanks!

Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2004
I made a vegetarian version of this and it turned out great! I substituted a 12 oz bag of morningstar crumbles for the cooked beef and added two extra cans of beans (one black, one pinto) as well as an extra tsp cumin and chile pepper, and reduced the water by 1/2 cup to make it thicker. Very spicy and good!

Easy Cream Cheese Danish

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2004
What a delicious treat this was for a quick breakfast when we had overnight company. I made just half the recipe and added boysonberry jam to the filling before putting the crust on top. I will definitely make this many times as it is the easiest breakfast treat I've made.

Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2004
Good recipe. I made the following modifications: six oz. sour cream; only 2 oz cream cheese; 1 tsp regular salt instead of onion salt; 2 tsp black pepper; paprika on top. Very handy to have the potatoes out of the way by preparing early.

Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2004
I give this recipe high marks for convenience but I did not enjoy the taste or texture as much as I do a traditional oatmeal cookie. But they are soft and chewy and speedy, so try it sometime when you don't have time for all the mixing and measuring.

Donna's Cheesy Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2004
I found the spices in this to give an excellent flavor to this quiche. I did use 1% milk instead of cream, and used only 5 slices jack cheese instead of the 1 1/2 cups shredded. Even with these modifications it was delicious and a big hit at my Easter brunch. This is quick to prepare with a readymade crust and I will definitely make again, next time adding veggies or different cheeses. Thanks for a good recipe!

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2004
This is an excellent yeast bread. I have used it for dinner rolls and cinnamon rolls and am very pleased with the results. I do not use the bread machine, instead dissolve the yeast in the warm water, then add the milk, sugar, butter, egg, salt and flour in that order and let it rise 1 1/2 hours before punching down and rolling out. It's really delicious with an excellent fragrance and I recommend it highly.

Giant Ding Dong Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2003
What a fun recipe! Instead of using a 10" springform, I used 2 9" round cake pans. I made the "lid" by making a very thin layer in one of the cake pans, and put the rest of the batter in the other for the main part. This was a little easier than cutting a slice off the top. Also, I used a butter-flavor crisco stick for the shortening in the filling, and that has a yellow color so my filling was not the bright-white I wanted, but it still tasted fine and was not too noticeable. I put the cake in the freezer for 10 minutes after frosting to give the glaze a shiny, hard texture like a real ding-dong. I wish I could make a Giant Twinkie as well as we so much enjoyed the massive sugar freak-out from this delicious cake.

Bacon Wrapped Corn Dogs

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2003
I'm vegetarian but made these for my carnivore sister, who lists corndogs as one of her all-time favorites (along with spam, pork-n-beans and basically any other type of nitrate-infused meat). She really enjoyed them! I could not find refrigerator cornbread twists so used actual cornbread mix, which I prepared using only 1/2 the liquid so the stuff would stick to the dog. It worked ok and baked fine, although I'm sure the twists would be much more attractive, if that's a term that can be used on a corn dog. I'm giving this a 4 star because pre-cooked bacon is expensive and she didn't actually eat the whole pan.
