The Best Chicken Salad Ever

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2004
I gave this recipe 5 stars. I thought this was a great salad; simple and easy to make with just a few ingredients. I loved it. NOTE: I don't have a food processor so I could only chop the chicken. I wish I had chopped them smaller, or even shredded them because my husband thought the salad was too runny. Again, I think it was because I could have chopped the chicken up more. I'm sure that would have helped. Also, I served it on flat bread. Too much bread per bite in my opinion. I prefer a better balance. My fault, my choice. Next time I'll try adding a chopped granny smith or something similiar. Another crunchy texture and a surprisingly sweet, tart addition. Yumm.

Creamy Peanut Towers

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2004
Try this with Nutella (hazelnut chocolate spread) without butter. It is fantastic. I would recommend, for visual effect, to use dark wheat bread alternated with the white. Yummy!

Aunt Nancy's Grape Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2003
Okay, I just wanted to add my review of a very similiar recipe. It contained 2 packages of seedless red or black grapes, 8 oz. cream cheese, 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 to 1 cup of chopped pecans. The cream cheese and sugar gets blended together with the pecans and grapes being folded in until coated. It is a wonderful fruit salad that just happens to have just grapes. I know it is a preference thing but I've had sooo many people ask me for the recipe. Nancy's recipe sounds great too...if not a little "lighter" with the whipped cream instead of sugar. Anyway, hope you enjoy.

Peanut Butter Chips and Jelly Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2003
I loved this dish. It's fantastic! It makes you feel just like a little kid again. Hey, pass the milk! The hubby and the kids loved it too. Of course you can use any jelly you like, but I do prefer the grape. Happy eating.

Queenie's Killer Tomato Bagel Sandwich

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2006
I LOVE this recipe! It's so refreshing and light. Very healthy choice along side all the other holiday fare. The best tomato I've found is the "Campari" tomato. Yummy!!! I've found them at Publix next to the grape tomatoes. They're in a small plastic container too. Perfect tomato to go with this dish.

Macaroni And Cheese II

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
I sometimes make a mac'n cheese using the cheddar soup as well, but I like this one better. The one thing I will still do, however, is use cheddar flavored fried onions on top.

Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2004
I took this to a church potluck....RAVE reviews!!! I did use pork instead of beef though...yummmmm! I chose hickory flavored liquid smoke in the sauce and added about 3/4 cup of hickory smoke bbq sauce to it as well. I did make another batch of sauce and bottled it in case anyone wanted any extra, but I thought it was just fine without it...and apparantely everyone else did too. I used about 11 lbs of pork (scaled to serve 24) and there was only a forkful left.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
Easy, easy, easy and great flavor. I've made it 2x so far. The 2nd time I wasn't as careful measuring the mayo and ended up adding a little too much. I noticed because I'm not a big mayo fan, but it was still good. I'll be sure to be more accurate while measuring the mayo because it was a better balance of flavors the 1st time. I also used 1 cup of freshly grated parmesan and 1/2 cup of Panko. Nice addition of flavor and texture to the crust.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2005
We LOVE this recipe! I used hot Italian sausage instead of ground beef and added garlic to the onion. I used Ragu's Chunky Tomato, Garlic and Onion spaghetti sauce. I prefer it's sweeter taste to the other saltier sauces. I also loved the idea of using a pasta with ridges to "hold" the sauce, so I used mostaccioli pasta. No matter how many times I've tried Ricotta, I end up with the same opinion...It's just not for me. I do, however, love the sour cream. Thanks for making it a part of your recipe Colleen. Reading the reviews, I decided to layer the dish with pasta, meat sauce, provolone, sour cream, pasta, mozzarella, meat sauce, and Parmesan...and cover with aluminum foil. BTW, we did try it following the original recipe, but prefer the changes made because it suits our family's tastes better. Thanks for sharing Colleen!

Day Before Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2005
This is the only way to make mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving! Not only does it save you time on Thanksgiving day, but it tastes great as well. Even better, I keep mine in a crockpot and reheat on low after adding butter and milk. Now my oven is free for the turkey and stuffing!

Pumpkin Fluff Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2005
Yummm! My youngest son loves anything made with pumpkin so I let him make this with my guidance. Easy as pie and it tasted great! He claimed the pumpkin fluff dip as his contribution to our Thanksgiving table from this year on.

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
It just gets better and better each year! To fill my round crockpot, I use 5lbs of Russett potatoes. The morning it is to be served, I add pats of real butter and pour in some milk and stir & set it on low for 3-4 hours. This year I used whole milk and it made a world of difference--we usually have only non-fat milk in our house.

You've Gotta Be Kidding Onions

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
This is such a great recipe! I've only had the opportunity to make it twice, but plan on making it again soon. The first time I used regular mayonnaise and loved it (and so did everyone else that tried it!). The second time I tried the "healthier" olive oil mayo and was disappointed. It just didn't taste the same. I'll stick with the regular mayo from now on.

Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2003
Okay, this gets a five stars but I took liberties with the ingredients. Here's what I changed: 2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni, 12 oz. canned chicken;drained, 1-10.75 oz. crm of mushroom soup, 1-10.75 oz. crm of chicken soup, 3 cups of shredded sharp cheddar and 1/2 can of milk. I tossed in some frozen peas as well and just covered the entire dish with the french fried onions after it had baked for 25 minutes. All the cooking directions remained the same. I love this!...and so did my kids. My youngest son even went back for thirds. Wow. Thank you Lindsay.

Caramel Crispy Treats II

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2004
These are fantastic...and SO easy! My variation was to mix in lightly salted, dry-roasted peanuts and some semi-sweet chocolate chips with the cereal and Milky Way, then to PRESS some more chocolate chips into the treat when in the pan. I also used a square baking pan because I like mine thicker. It looks like I'll have to double the recipe next time because we all wanted more! This really is better than any other rice krispy recipe I've ever made and so much easier (and with much less fuss). Thanks Cheryl.
