Spring Cleaning Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2014
These cookies are awesome. They look like something you would buy in a bakery & they taste fantastic! Subbed half and half for the evaporated milk & subbed butter for the shortening (didn't have it). Beautiful, wonderful, tasty cookie that I was proud to share with friends and family!

Mediterranean Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2014
Truly tasty!!! Subbed yellow onion for red and red pepper for green. Added 1/2 tsp dried oregano, 1.5 tsp dried parsley & 2 tsp minced garlic. Very tasty...next time might cut back on Feta to reduce calories and fat, but wonderfully delicious as written! Thanks Hockeymom!

Pasta e Fagioli I

Reviewed: May 18, 2014
Awesome quick recipe! Subbed Ditalini for sea shell pasta and added 2-3 extra cups of broth and extra basil & garlic, as soup simmered down over time (lots of people over soup was on crock pot for hours). Wonderful, healthy & quick...thanks Corwynn!

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 10, 2014
Great base recipe that is flexible based on ingredients on hand. I frequently substitute chopped, dry roasted peanuts for the sesame seeds. I generally cut back or omit the chicken and instead substitute broccoli slaw. I also cut back on the oil & make up the difference with water. I also substitute Splenda for sugar...very nice, crunchy side dish. Thanks ohines!

Strawberry Spinach Salad II

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2014
This is my absolute favorite variation of the many "Spinach & Strawberries" salads on this site...absolutely delicious, light and flexible! I never mix the dressing in with the salad, but leave it on the side in a serving dish (prevents salad from getting soggy). My favorite variations include: 1) adding toasted almond slices to the greens ( based on personal preference, but at least a 1/4 cup) 2) subbing water for half the oil 3) mix sesame seeds in food processor with oil, water, vinegar, paprika, sugar, sesame oil & minced onions 3) sub Splenda for sugar 4) mixing Poppy seeds with greens instead of in the dressing 5) subbing Spring mix greens for half of the Spinach 6) add thin slivers of onion to salad greens/ strawberry/ toasted almond/ poppy seed mix. The sesame oil adds a wonderful layer of flavor to this dish...it is one of the best salads I have had in a long time...thank you PEGW!!!

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2014
AMAZING & SPECTACULAR.....would definitely be on the menu if this were my last meal on earth!!! I usually make a double batch in a lasagna pan, and I sub extra shredded cheddar on top instead of bread crumb / butter topping. I recommend adding a 1/2 cup of milk to the pasta mix before baking (1 cup if you're making a double batch). This will keep it moist when you reheat it the next day. This is definitely a dish that will have people singing your praises! Thank you MRSO!!!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2014
Nice flavor & easy to make; however, too spicy for the kids to eat. If I make this again, I will sub petite diced tomatoes for the Rotel tomatoes.

Brown Sugar Instant Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2014
Family liked these, but I modified it based on suggestions of other reviewers. CHANGES: 1) subbed apple cinnamon applesauce for veg oil 2) used 1/2 cup sugar instead of 1/3 cup 3) added an extra egg 4) added 1/2 tsp vanilla & 1/2 tsp maple flavoring to batter 5) added closer to 1/2 tsp cinnamon to streusel topping. Giving 4 stars because it had to be tweaked, but is probably closer to a 4.5. Next time I might add a little more maple flavoring & some cinnamon to the batter., as it was a little bland for my son ( and me).

Apple Cole Slaw

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2014
This was good and healthy! Subbed 3 cups slaw mix for shredded cabbage, subbed 1/2 cup toasted almonds for carrots, and added 1 tsp. Apple Cider vinegar. Very pleasant, quick, crunchy and healthy. Kids didn't HATE it (that gives me hope) & hubs liked it (highly unusual response from him on my new creations...LOL ). I will make again, as it is nice for the hot Florida temps...give it a try...you will be happy to have a change!

Ham and Cheese Crescent Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2014
Nice concept and very versatile. A single triangle wrap would be way too small a serving in my house; therefore, I put 2 triangles of dough together to form a rectangle, being careful to join all seams ( one tube of crescent rolls will make 4 crescent wraps). I covered the rectangle with a thin layer of light honey mustard dressing. After this, I chopped a large slice of ham, folded it into one slice of Swiss, basically folding the slice in half to act as a "pocket" for the cheese. I placed the pocket into the "sauced" rectangle. I wrapped the dough around the cheese/ham pocket, joining the long sides together & closing all seams by pinching with my fingers tips. I then folded the short ends in toward the center (similar to wrapping a present) and closed all seams. Cooked for 13 minutes, then turned the wraps over & cooked for an additional 5 minutes. It made a nice presentation (similar to hot pockets), but was greasy (that's why I'm giving only 4 stars). Next time I will make these using pizza dough instead of crescent rolls to reduce fat. This recipe has a lot of potential!

Awesome Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
Ehhh...this was okay, nothing great. Subbed brown rice, cut lemon pepper In half & forgot peas...very forgettable & won' be making again. This is one of those side dishes you have to remake into something else, as it is not interesting enough to eat again.

Cuban Midnight Sandwich

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2014
These were excellent & quick to put together! Needed to reduce fat, so Used half the recommended amount of mayo (light mayo at that), Italian dressing & mustard. Eyeballed & added minced garlic & oregano to the mayo mix to make it more authentic. Used Cuban bread & added thinly sliced onions with the pickles. Wrapped each loaf in foil & cooked the foil-wrapped sandwiches on the George Forman grill for 4 minuted per side....very tasty, quick, healthy & uncomplicated meal :-) These store really well and are great for kids' lunches....my son (who HATES dill pickle slices) could not get enough. Definite keeper recipe..thanks so much Maruchy!

French Ham Cheese and Egg Fondue Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2014
Bland and mushy. Might be better if you reduced milk and/or added more egg(s) or bread. This will not be going in my recipe box...sorry Sheaslounge!

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2014
Quite delicious, & even my veggie-phobic son & mother-in-law loved these green beans! Subbed 2 pounds green beans & omitted tomatoes because I didn't have any. Omitted sugar and added a little balsamic vinegar & Parmesan cheese. These were awesome with mashed potatoes & grilled fish. I have NEVER seen my son voluntarily go back for seconds on any vegetable (especially bypassing mashed potatoes), but he went back for thirds on this ( he couldn't get enough!). That's a home-run in my book...THANK YOU Starnetsa for opening my son's eyes to the wonderful, crunchy, delicious flavor of fresh vegetables!!!

Old Charleston Style Shrimp and Grits

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2014
Liked the pepper, sausage, onion shrimp mix....very flavorful but not too much heat for the kids. I subbed polenta for the grits because that's what I had. Kids & hubs did not care for the polenta, so next time I make this I would sub rice if I didn't have grits. Nice change of pace....I just like more texture to chew, so rice would work better for me. Definitely worth a try!

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2014
Quick & easy crust that can be modified easily to compliment the type pizza you're making (Italian herbs, garlic, onion, Parmesan. BBQ rub, etc). Outstanding recipe that is now my go-to pizza crust... No more pre-made crusts for me....LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this recipe!!!!

Jennifer's Burgundy Beef Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2014
Nice texture and I liked the addition of mushrooms with the Burgundy wine; however, the finished product was still rather bland. My kids liked it, but hubby thought it was only edible. The search for a good beef stew will continue for me (it is my Achilles heel)!

Autumn Apple Salad II

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2013
Easy, delicious & uncomplicated....PERFECT in every way!!! Big hit with the family...my kids thought it was a dessert, so they gobbled it down first (not realizing they were voluntarily eating something healthy...LOL). This one is a keeper for sure!!!

Crispy Rosemary Chicken and Fries

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2013
Good base recipe. Doubled it & subbed boneless, skinless, coarsely chopped chicken breasts & half the amount of herbs (dried rosemary & dried parsley) for fresh. Added a 1/2 cup low fat ranch dressing & 1/4 cup Chicken broth to mix, as I wasn't sure of portions of potatoes & chicken given the substitutions. Excellent, quick dish that required minimal prep & clean-up! Great dish to let cook while doing homework with the kids before dinner. You can tweak easily according to your taste preferences (more parsley, more moist w/ broth, ranch dressing or half & half.). Leftovers can easily be made into soups, wraps or a casserole. Definitely worth a try...easy weeknight dinner with tossed salad...will definitely make again! Thanks Sandy!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
These cookies are officially my new vice...my daughter dubbed them "a bite of heaven in your mouth!!". Only change I made was subbing chocolate extract for the vanilla & I left out the nuts (which were optional). Baked at 350 for 8 minutes, making 68 cookies out of this batch (we prefer small cookies for nibbling). I had to flatten mine slightly after pulling them out of the oven, as the cookies baked fairly high (I think it 's because I live at sea level & cookies generally cook so quickly they don't spread very much in my oven). BEWARE... These are highly addicting even if you don't generally have a sweet tooth. Thanks Kathy for this wonderful recipe...It is definitely going in the recipe book I am building for my kids. :-)
