Lemon Glazed Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2014
The one star is for the glaze. It was way too liquidy.

Good for You Greek Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2014
An excellent salad, quickly put together. I recommend seeding the cucumber after peeling (scoop out the seeds with a spoon after cutting in half length-wise). Also, I used my immersible blender on the dressing, worked beautifully in keeping the dressing from separating!

To Die For Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2014
Made it as written, divine!! Next time I'll persuade my 13 yo son (who made this) to add fresh garlic and hopefully mushrooms to the butter as it cooks.

Beef Tenderloins with Mushroom-Garlic Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2014
We had to substitute a few things for budget reasons. We found a less expensive steak, used regular mushrooms instead of portobellas, and used cream of mushroom soup instead of the package sauce. It still turned out incredible! I think my daughter added a little more wine to help thin the sauce a little (yes, my 16 yo made this).

Spicy Pretzels

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2013
Most definitely use garlic powder instead of garlic salt. Cut the oil to 1/2 cup. I don't keep lemon pepper on hand, so I use regular pepper with some chili powder. Mix everything except the pretzels in a big bowl FIRST, then add pretzels and toss. Toss every 5 to 10 minutes. Usually they soak up all the flavor quite well, especially when you cut down on the oil.

Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
My family LOVED this recipe! It was fresh and creamy and loaded with bacon and tomato flavor! I normally take liberties with the recipes here, but the only thing different I did was just use 1/2 pound of bacon. It was still amazing!

Spicy Southwestern Slaw

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2013
Loved the flavors in this. The only change we made was to dump the jalapeno and substitute a milder pepper, 'cause we're weenies. Amazing enough that my picky 12 year old had thirds!

Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
I made it the first time tonight with a houseful of people playing D&D. They were clamoring for it before the bread machine beeped. Everyone loved it and it was gone in 15 minutes. I didn't put in the Parmesan or the chives, I did put in 1/4 cup gluten in place of 1/2 cup of the flour. The only other change was upping the fresh garlic to 3 cloves, minced, which came to about 1 1/2 tablespoons. Wow!

Asian Ground Beef and Pepper Saute

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
I read the reviews, but mostly changed it a little as I cooked it. I wanted more veg, so I steamed some green beans until about two-thirds done, then added it to the peppers as I stir-fried them. Added a half onion as well as the garlic. As I was stir-frying this I put the sauce ingredients in a bowl to blend: one can beef broth, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 2 tbsp sweet hot chile paste, 1/4 tsp black pepper, 1 tsp powdered ginger (didn't have fresh). I tasted and it seemed too sweet. I added 1/4 cup cider vinegar and 1 tbsp sesame oil. I poured the sauce in with the hamburger and let it simmer a bit. The sauce seemed too thin and watery, so I mixed about 1/3 cup cornstarch with 1/3 cup water, added and stirred. Thickened beautifully, of course. Forgot about the Worcestershire entirely! This all worked quite well, although I'd added more black pepper than I should have and it was on the hot side. My kids didn't complain about the green beans as much as usual. This version will go into the rotation, with changes on the veg as wanted.

Easy Baklava

Reviewed: May 26, 2011
This is an easy awesome recipe with lovely results. I have made this several times, using orange zest, and it's gone quickly every time. I use more like 5-6 tbsp of the chopped nuts (I use walnut) per layer, start with 6 leaves of the phyllo and put 4 in between, top with 6, according to other reviews. I use a Pampered Chef chopper for the nuts, goes quickly.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
I was not impressed. I followed this recipe to the T, using a 2 pound roast. It came out dry and tough. I ended up using the leftovers to make a beef noodle soup, and even after simmering the meat for almost two hours it was still tough.

Turkey Burger Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
I read a lot of reviews and made my own version of this. Ground turkey is pretty bland on its own. I used taco seasoning to season it up some. I also grated two small zucchini and added that to the meat as I browned it. After using the taco seasoning mix and adding the water, it had to cook somewhat longer than usual because the zucchini added extra liquid (even after draining). I used 1 cup Bisquick, two eggs, and 1 1/4 cup almond milk (we're lactose intolerant) for the topping. Both picky kids liked this, especially after I called it 'taco pie' instead of turkey burger pie. It's an easy recipe to adapt to your own tastes.

Zucchini Herb Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
I don't remember if I've reviewed this or not, but it was wonderful. My husband will actually eat zucchini, if it's served to him in this dish. I have changed a couple of things: I make brown rice, and I make more of it (2 to 3 cups cooked) so I can make this a vegetarian main dish, and I use less cheese, so it's not quite so fattening. Seasoning is perfect as it stands.

Bev's Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
I only gave this four stars because the texture is a little odd. However, it's delicious. I'm lactose intolerant, so I tried substituting unsweetened almond milk, original, and adding one tbsp cornstarch. Set up beautifully! A dense fudgy chocolate pie, rich and sweet.

Cinnamon Popcorn

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
My daughter likes this so much I make it for her class on her birthday. I have to say DON'T make it with tub margarine, just too much water, yuck. Make it with real butter or stick margarine. Also, use more popcorn. This seems to dilute the overly buttery sugary syrup a bit and still tastes yummy.

Ground Beef N Rice Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
I made this and it was okay. It was quite bland. I probably won't make it again, but for a suggestion I would try making it with your favorite jarred spaghetti sauce, instead of plain tomato sauce. It might zip it up a bit.

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
This was VERY VERY GOOD. I made it and took it to a Thanksgiving supper and everyone had seconds and thirds and asked for the recipe. Some of us poured gravy on it, and I told someone else that it would make a good breakfast, heated with maple syrup. And I can see lots of different adaptations you can do with it: add chopped green onions, add Mexican corn instead of regular corn, add a small can of jalapenos, add cheese of almost any sort. Excellent!

Everything But the Kitchen Sink Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
My husband was intrigued by this recipe and he tried it. The flavor is good and savory, made me think of paella or arroz con pollo or something. HOWEVER, you should cook the brown rice first, preferably in the brothy liquid. He cooked the casserole an extra half hour and the rice still was crunchy. It makes me want to scratch my head: you cook everything else you put in this casserole, why not the rice??

Gooey Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
As everyone else said, they are a rich, decadent, incredibly sweet bar. I think it's missing something: a tsp of vanilla in the cream cheese? toasted almonds or coconut on the top before baking? And I probably won't try any more recipes that use cake mix, just way too much added sugar. I think this would be better with a shortbread cookie-like crust, and if I EVER make this again I would cut the sugar way down.

BBQ Tuna Fritters

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2008
This sounded really weird when I read the recipe, but I was desperate for something to do with canned tuna besides a tuna noodle casserole. I thought it was decent, and I would have given it four stars. I added the extra star because my extremely picky ten-year-old daughter said it was great, and she NEVER says that about anything. The first time I made it I didn't have any barbecue sauce, so I made a mix of catsup, brown sugar, vinegar, spices and seasonings, and it was even good that way.
