Collard Greens and Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
This was delicious! I had to use a yellow onion instead of a red one, since it was all I had. I also used Great Northern Beans instead of cannellini. Will need to tone down the spice next time for my kids (maybe only 1/4 tsp. red pepper for them).

Hopi Corn Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
Delicious! I halved the recipe and used ground venison. Other than adding some minced garlic while browning the meat and onions, I prepared the stew as directed. I love hominy, and I can't imagine this stew being as good without it.

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2004
I made this tonight for dinner with friends. It was very tasty! I doubled the sauce, cut the chicken into strips before sauteing, and used half and half instead of heavy cream. I thickened the sauce with a bit of cornstarch, and served over spinach fettucine. Everyone enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing!

Chocolate Wave Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2004
This is delicious!! Next time, I'll just add an extra tablespoon or two to the whole thing, and forget able the layered effect, which didn't work too well for me. And I know there'll be a next time!

Stir-Fry Sesame Green Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
Excellent recipe! This is one of the best stir-fry meals I have ever made. I followed the recipe exactly, except for decreasing the canola oil to 1/2 tablespoon and using a full 8 oz. pkg. of mushrooms. I love the straightforward instructions. I chopped everything up and had it ready to add, so I just followed the directions and set a timer so I wouldn't overcook the veggies each time I made an addition. The apricots and the toasted sesame seeds really made it special. Can't wait to make it again!

Premier White Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
To achieve a more brownie-like consistency, I used 8oz. of white chocolate instead of 6oz. I removed them from the oven at exactly 25 minutes. Love to almond flavor! Family gobbled them up. Also, to simplify the prep, I melted the chocolate and the butter together. Worked perfectly.

Classy Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2005
Yummy! Easy to make and chicken was very moist. Husband declared it a winner! I followed the recipe exactly, except for using 3 large breast halves. It's a keeper.

Whiskey Mojo Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
Used on venison round steaks. Marinaded 48 hours, since dinner plans changed unexpectedly. Delicious! Will use again.

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2005
These are very good. Very buttery. I used fresh coconut that I grated. (Unfortunately, my son doesn't like them, so I'll have to give most of them away so I won't eat them all!) The batch made about 30 cookies.

Chicken and Biscuit Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2005
This was excellent! I used leftover chicken, and only had 3 cups, but it was fine. Next time, I may use frozen peas instead of canned, and perhaps add a few more carrots. The biscuit dough was a little hard to handle (sticky!), but definitely worth the effort. YUM!!

Slow Cooker Barbeque

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2005
My husband ate 4 sandwiches of this beef tonight....I couldn't believe it! This is very easy to make. The only change I made was to add 1 cup of water after 2-3 hours of cooking, because it looked very dry, and I was afraid it would burn.

Stir-Fried Chicken and Rice Noodles

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
This recipe is delicious and very forgiving. I messed up and didn't follow the method exactly, but it was still so good. The only ingredient changes I made were to use rice wine vinegar instead of wine or broth in the marinade and cashews instead of peanuts. And I used a 14oz. pkg. of Tinkyada brown rice noodles. My picky son asked for seconds! Will definitely make again.

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
I believe this was my first time ever making meatballs, and I was glad I chose this recipe. I used some ground beef which had a higher fat content (because it was what I had), I cut down the red pepper flakes to 1/4 tsp. (for my kids), omitted the hot sauce, and used finely ground oatmeal instead of bread crumbs. I also only used about 1/4 of a small onion. Once baked, I put the meatballs in a crockpot, poured my favorite jarred marinara sauce on top, and let it cook on low for a few hours until supper time. We recently bought a LOT of beef from a local farmer, so I think these would be a good way to use the ground beef. I plan to make and freeze some for later use. Thanks for a great recipe!

Awesome Ham Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2005
Wow! I just made this, and I don't think I'll be able to let it sit overnight! It's delicious! I used leftover Easter ham, small shell pasta, and 1/2 red onion. Also, I used 2 Tablespoons sweet pickle relish and 2 Tablespoons dill relish (since sweet pickles are not our favorite.) This is a winner, and can be easily adapted....may add shredded carrots, etc. next time.

Grandpop's Special Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2006
I made this for my husband's birthday 3 days ago and the cake is still moist and delicious. Try it with a homemade cream cheese icing....YUM!********** Update (12-2-10): Four years later, this has become my "go to" chocolate cake recipe. My kids ALWAYS request it (with homemade cocoa icing) for every birthday. I've made it over and over, and only once did it "fall", and that was when I switched brands of flour. Needless to say, I ditched that flour and went back to my old brand. Perfect chocolate cake!

Granola

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2010
I LOVE this granola recipe! It's easy to adjust according to what you have or what you like. I love that it uses no oil, keeping the fat content lower than traditional granola. I usually substitute organic prunes for the dates and use whole raw almonds, coarsely chopped. I add the almonds to the granola mix and bake it all together. I've made this granola many times, and every once in a while, it doesn't get dry/crunchy enough. When that happens (maybe due to humidity in the house, or water content of fruit mixture), I just re-bake it for a while the next day (or turn off the oven and leave it in there to cool, which dries it out a bit more.) Thank you for such a versatile, healthful recipe! Update: I have substituted prunes, raisins, dried cranberries, or a combination for the dates with good results. Any dried fruit would do, I think. Also, for added sweetness, I sometimes use apple juice instead of the water.

Easy Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
Easy and delicious! I added the mini-chocolate chips to the whole mixture at the beginning. Turned out fine and even made the ice cream light brown in color. (I skipped the green food coloring.) Kids voted it the best homemade ice cream so far!

BUSH'S® Traditional Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
I have been making this recipe for at least 6 years since first finding it on this website. I always add an extra can of black beans and use a full can of petite diced tomatoes for the tomatoes it calls for. We LOVE it! Made a very large batch for a vegan dinner party once, and they all loved it, too. Many thanks for one of my favorite recipes!
