Cowboy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2004
I have to admit my expectations were pretty low for this recipe despite the reviews. It just sounded kind of strange and I didn't think it would turn out with a nice consitency with no milk, cream, sour cream, etc. I was very wrong and the reviews were right. I don't usually make mashed potatoes because they are trouble. This recipe is super simple. No peeling potatoes, no guessing how much milk to add, no endless mashing with lumps remaining. This came together like magic. Just boil, drain, and mash with butter and cheese. A great addition to my recipe box and a terrific way to use up fresh produce at the end of the week! Boiling the garlic with the potatoes is genius as well. Try this even if you are skeptical. You won't be disappointed!

Six Threes Ice Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2005
My husband said this was the best ice cream he had ever eaten...and we are ice cream fanatics. I made this as six twos and still had a little bit too much for my smaller ice cream freezer, so I just poured the rest into a plastic container with a lid and stuck it in the freezer. Both batches turned out great. Also the juice from the oranges and lemons combined to make about 6 oz. of juice. So if I'm really short on time I can buy fresh juice at the grocery store instead of squeezing my own. Thanks for a yummy new recipe!

White Chocolate Snack Mix

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2005
I found the chocolate coating to be kind of wet or greasy even after letting it set up. I ended up putting the mix back into the bowl and tossing it all with a little powdered sugar. It fixed the greasy problem and still tasted good. I loved the sweet and salty combination, but next time I won't add 3T of oil to the chocoalate chips.

Slow Cooker Hoppin' John Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2004
We loved this! I cooked all ingredients (except the rice) as directed with the beef broth and no water added. I was afraid the rice would get "starchy" in the slow cooker all day. Just before serving I cooked the rice in beef broth, put a scoop in each soup bowl and topped with the peas. My husband and I ate on this all week long till the leftovers were gone. Definitely a keeper!

Microwave Cake

Reviewed: May 11, 2005
I was quite surprised with how good this was. I ecpected it to turn out rubbery but tried it anyway because it sounded so easy (and inexpensive). Glad I did. I made the chocolate cake using a devils food cake mix (with pudding in the mix), a can of cherry pie filling, eggs, applesauce and added almond extract. (The almond flavor was really good with the chocolate and cherries.) I baked it in a soft-sided silicone bundt pan and the cake came out easily. I think the success of this recipe probably depends on your microwave oven. It worked for me, and I'll be making it again. Thanks!

Mandarin Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2004
Great sauce! I used only two chicken breasts but the full recipe of sauce. Glad I did because my husband & I couldn't get enough of it. I added garlic powder, salt and pepper to the flour and more OJ than the recipe called for (added more as the sauce reduced). Just the right combination of sweet and spicy. THanks!!!

Chicken Seashell Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2003
My family loved this recipe. I was a little skeptical about the almond extract, but added it anyway. The flavor of the dressing was great on the salad. I don't usually care for pasta salad, but this one is very tasty. The celery & mandarin oranges are critical to the salad for color. Everything else in it is white and not very pretty. I used fat free mayo and will probably leave out the cashews next time to make it very low fat.

Turkey a la Oscar

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2004
What a great idea! I made this as directed except I used 1 lb fresh asparagus for 4 people instead of the frozen. The finished producut looks especially impressinve! We were not that impressed with the texture of the turkey cutlets, so next time I'll use boneless, skinless chicken breasts pounded thin. Thanks for and easy impressive recipe!

A-Number-1 Banana Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
I baked this cake in a 9x13" baking dish. The flavor was ok, but not the best I've made. Same with the texture: denser than a cake, but "sponge-ier" than banana bread would be. Maybe best as muffins? I make banana bread/cake/muffins often to use up bananas at the end of the week. Probably won't make this recipe again, as I have others my family likes more.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2004
I'd never even heard of quinoa, much less cooked with it, so I followed the recipe exactly. My husband and toddler and I all loved it! I halved the amount to avoid a bunch of left-overs if we didn't like it. I served it as a meatless main dish and it we ate it all. I thought the proportion of beans-quinoa-corn was perfect. This is the sort of recipe you can play around with the seasonings to suit that of your family's preference. Definitely a keeper! Next time I'll make the whole amount so we can have leftovers since other reviewers noted that the leftovers were even better!

Southwestern Turkey Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2004
This is very similar to a recipe I make with ground beef, tomato soup, and salsa. I combined the ingredients (minus one can of soup)in a large skillet including the tortillas that I chopped into 1" squares. Put it all in a baking dish, topped with cheese and baked 20 min. My family likes this and I like that it is so easy!

Orange Sherbet Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
Some of the family loved this, others not so much. Not sure I will make it again. I have another similar recipe that has whipped cream in it that the whole family likes.

Lime Pineapple Jam

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
I really wanted to love this after reading the other reviews. However, the batch I made did not live up to the "sunshine in a jar" or "buttery" billing. Although I only cooked mine 35 minutes, it may have been too long because it became very sticky and thick...not spreadable the next morning after refrigeration. (Almost like the candied fruit in Christmas fruitcake.) The flavor was pretty good so I may try again since others had better luck than I did.

Spicy Pretzels

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2005
These are addicting! I try out new snack mix recipes all the time and this is by far the best one yet. I read the reviews and couldn't believe how good people said these were considering the recipe is so easy. These really are great. I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt and Fiesta Ranch dip mix along with the other ingredients and baked for 15 min at 250. (We love the Fiesta Ranch dip mix. It is mildly spicy southwest flavored ranch.) They turned out great - plenty salty and just the right amount of heat. The first few you eat don't seem spicy at all, but after a few you realize they have a little kick. They would probably be good with regular Ranch dressing mix too. Great for snacking during a game, movie, in the car, in care packages, teacher gifts, etc. Thanks Valarie!

The Dreamiest Peaches

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2004
I couldn't believe how good this tasted because it was so fast and easy to prepare. I doubled the topping as others recommended, and used 2 large sliced fresh peaches. I microwaved the peaches in a covered bowl for 1-2 minutes before adding the topping and broiling. I also melted the butter in the microwave instead of waiting for it to soften. The peaches turned out warm and soft with the sweet crunchy topping. This literally took only 5 minutes to make and served 4 people. Would also be good served with ice cream or whipped cream. I will keep this recipe on hand to make when guests drop in at the last minute.

Angie's Dad's Best Cabbage Coleslaw

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2004
I made this to go along with the honey mustard beer brauts(from this site) and the cole slaw stole the show. Fixed it 2 days ahead and the flavors were great when I served it. I used a 16 oz bag of shreded cabbage and carrot cole slaw mix with the half the amount of dressing. AFter several days the purple cabbage in the mix started to turn it all purple, so next time I'll use the bag of green cabbage only. Great side dish for lots dishes and occasions!

Spicy Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2012
Used lemon instead of lime and 1/2 tsp dried oregano (what I had on hand) and it turned out very tasty but not spicy. This was probably the most beautiful chicken I have ever grilled, however. Wish I'd taken a picture. I used drumsticks and baked in the oven for 30 min then finished on the grill for 10-15 min. Picture perfect and the family really enjoyed.

Pizza Salad I

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2003
Like some others, I found this salad to be too salty...almost too salty to eat. The dressing is very good, though. I will keep the recipe in my files just for the dressing. It would go well on other salads. Pizza salad is a great idea, but this recipe didn't work for my family. Will need quite a bit of "tweaking" if I make it again.

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
I followed this basic method but used mixed nuts (leaving out the salt) and added cayenne pepper for a kick. We loved them! The few that were left after snacking, I tossed in a salad. Terrific! Will make again...and will experiment with other spices.

Lemon Pie II

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
I upped the fresh squeezed lemon juice to 1/2 cup and added 1T lemon zest. (If you use bottled juice, 1/3 cup may be enough.) Aslo subbed fat free cream cheese. Served with whipped cream as a topper. Sweet, creamy, and lemony but not tart. We really liked it.
