Bean Relish

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2012
I scaled this recipe down to use one can of beans. I didn't have dry mustard so I subbed wasabi powder (1/4 tsp.) I used 1/4 c. mayo and 3 T. relish and a dash of granulated garlic in lieu of the garlic. I added white pepper and a ground pepper medley. I mixed everything together and let it sit in the fridge overnight; delicious! I wish I would have made more since everyone loved it. It reminded me of my Dad's homemade ham salad replacing the ham with beans. We prefered serving this over Ritz crackers which adds a buttery dimension to this recipe. Next time I will definitely make more and drain the pickle relish and perhaps add some white beans if I don't have several cans of the kidney beans. Thanks for sharing!

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2012
I loved it; my family did not. They prefer the traditional spaghetti squash with spaghetti sauce and sausage. I didn't have time to use my traditional crockpot cooking method of pouring 2 cups of water into the pot, pierce the squash with holes, and cook on low 8-9 hours. So, I tried two methods: oven and stovetop. Oven: preheat oven to 375, cut squash in half, put in pan and add water to 1/2 inches, bake for 45 minutes or until done. Stovetop: Bring a pot of water to a boil at medium high heat, add squash ensuring that it's covered halfway; cook 30 minutes turning halfway through. For simplicity, I love the crockpot method. A close second was the oven method--the only downfall was the difficulty in cutting the raw squash. The stovetop method although quicker was very difficult in separating the strands from the seeds in the end. I liked this recipe but I love spaghetti squash. Thanks for sharing.

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2012
I followed the advice of another reviewer...I used Pepperidge Farm Chessmen cookies in lieu of the Nilla wafers. I used only 2 cups milk to mix into the instant pudding. I beat the pudding & milk with a mixer, then beat the cream cheese with the condensed milk separately, stirred the cool whip into the cheese mixture, and added that to the instant pudding. I used 8 bananas to fill a 13 x 9 aluminum pan. The pudding set up perfectly. The bananas darkened after we cut into it, but they tasted just as good the second day.

Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
Delicious! I used leftover rosemary herb french bread and maple breakfast sausage. I cooked the sausage in my toaster oven then cut off the casing and ground it up. I put 1/2 cup of cheese in the mixture and the remaining on top. I ended up storing this in the fridge for two days before I cooked it. It was a little dry so I added more milk before the final cooking stage. Yummy with minor changes.

Maple Syrup and Banana Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2012
I made this for one person using one slightly ripe banana and 1/3 of the ingredients. I added a splash of vanilla extract and served over two gluten free pancakes--my uncle LOVED it! He said it was like something served at a fancy restaurant. Two pancakes, 1 serving of this banana topping, and a few sausage links...delicious! My aunt and I ate it over pancakes with gluten--I wouldn't change a thing. A definite keeper that impressed! Thanks for sharing!

Cantaloupe Bread with Praline Glaze

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
Omit the glaze. The recipe fits in one 9x5 bread pan and two smaller aluminum bread pans. The consensus is the bread is better with chopped pecans in it. Use very ripe cantaloupe. I told everyone that it was pumpkin bread until they agreed that they liked it then I told them the truth. Many agreed that they wouldn't have tried cantaloupe bread. A definite keeper.

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
Delicious with slight modifications. I doubled the recipe. So I mixed 2 cans of refried beans with one taco seasoning overnight and 1/2 of a serving of Taco Seasoning I by Bill Echols--it didn't make a difference. I put the remaining Taco Seasoning I in the sour cream/cream cheese mixture and let it sit overnight. Also used 2 jars of thick and chunky salsa and draining overnight eliminated two cups of water from the salsa. Layer 1-beans, layer 2-cream cheese, sour cream w/taco seasoning, layer 3-tomatoes, layer 4-green onions, layer 5-gucamole, layer 6-drained thick and chunky salsa, layer 7-cheese, layer 8-black olives. It keeps well in the fridge for at least a week. Next time I will put the taco seasoning in the sour cream mixture not the beans. I have also made it with Rotel vs. salsa which works well and is cheaper.

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
I had 1 1/2 cups of pumpkin seeds (fresh out of the pumpkin, not dried) and I used the amount of butter and Worcestershire sauce recommended for the two cups but I subbed seasoning salt for the salt and roasted garlic powder for the garlic salt. The recipe needs more flavor...I would double the garlic powder next time. Overall, good, not great.

Pumpkin Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
Used one large 24.5 oz. can of black beans for the puree and one 14.5 oz. can of diced, no salt added, tomatoes and leftover stewed tomatoes in the fridge to make the 16 oz. When added to the blender, it was too thick to puree so I slowly added one cup of chicken broth; it worked; the puree was smooth. I used 1/4 c. margarine but next time I will use the margarine/oil combination mentioned by others; you don't need 1/4 cup. Since I used fresh pumpkin, I only needed a total of 2 cups of chicken broth and one cup of water. Next time, I will use only two cups of chicken broth for a thicker soup. I omitted the ham; didn't have on hand and used apple cider vinegar in lieu of the sherry vinegar (same reason). I also added 1 teaspoon of cumin. Very filling but not pretty.

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2012
OMG! Delicious! I toasted the pecans (since mine were not fresh) in the oven for 8 mins.; 4 mins. on each side at 350 degrees. No need for additional butter or cooking spray, the natural oils are enough for the toasting process but watch closely to avoid burnt pecans--YUCK! Immediately remove from the oven and cool on paper towels. Meanwhile, lay the preztels and rolos on the parchment paper. Bake 4 minutes. Perfection! Press the roasted pecan on top. If you use the regular shaped preztels, it will resemble a turtle unlike the squared or round pretzels. I followed the recipe and everyone thought they were cute and Delicious! A keeper! Thanks for sharing!

Cheesy Ramen Noodles

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2012
I first had this recipe in Korea. The cooks would add hot dog slices or chunks of Spam and frozen corn kernels or frozen peas. I prefer to make this in the microwave using the noodles in the individual bowl. Add the water and seasoning packet, microwave for three minutes, take out of the oven and stir in 1-2 slices of cheese and a handful of frozen veggies. Delicous! I was never a huge fan of the hot dogs or spam but my friends loved it. A pat of butter also makes this creamier but also adds fat and calories. Very good. Thanks for posting.

Jerky Lover's Jerky - Sweet, Hot and Spicy!

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2012
I was marinating a steak in balsamic dressing and didn't get to cook it in a day or two so I decided to make jerky. I put the beef strips on a grilling rack; the pan was lined with aluminum and I sprinkled with ground black pepper. I cooked the beef on the racks at 150 degrees for 5-6 hours. I will definitely use this again when I am pushing the envelope on a steak.

Oriental Asparagus Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2012
I steamed one 6 ounce (pricked) bag in the microwave for 2:30. 1 T. low sodium soy sauce, 1 tsp. sesame oil; 1 tsp. red wine vinegar; 1/8 tsp. ginger and 1/8 tsp. cumin. I omitted the sugar and sesame seeds. Yummy warm or cold!

Super Easy Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
I made this for a party of 50 people following the recipe as written. No one liked it. Vanilla yogurt was too plain and didn't add to the whipped topping. I won't make this again.

Spiced Applesauce

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2012
Delicous! I used 1 1/4 cups water vs. apple juice for four apples. I added 1/4 tsp. cinnamon then looked for the cloves and allspice only to realize I didn't have any in the cabinet but I had pumpkin pie spice which I used as a substitute; I added 1/2 tsp. So light and refreshing and HCG diet compliant without the juice. To add sweetness, I added one packet of Stevia or four liquid drops. This is definitely a keeper.

Peri Peri African Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2012
I put the chicken and the seasonings in a ziploc bag to marinate. I was awaiting grilling weather but after 3 days, I ended up cooking the chicken in a casserole dish at 375 degrees for 40 minutes. I rinsed the bag with water and added it to the casserole dish. I used ground ginger since I didn't have fresh on hand. It was very tasty but next time I would add cayenne, black, or white pepper for a bigger kick. I love spicy foods and I don't think the hot chili powder gave me the kick that I wanted. For those on the HCG diet, this marinade complies with that diet. I will definitely make this again.

Greek Pasta Salad I

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2012
The Soldiers like the Antipasto Pasta Salad recipe more from this site. This one was very mild in flavor; Italian dressing would have been stronger. I won't make this again but it was good. We all like the other recipe more.

Country Green Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2012
I also followed the recipe as written and it was okay; a borderline 2-star rating. I used fresh green beans but the onion, smoked ham, butter, and garlic just didn't provide flavor to the beans. Perhaps broth would have improved the flavor but increase the fat and calories and I was looking for a healthy recipe. I won't make this again although it was flavorless and edible.

Herb-Stuffed Red Peppers

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2012
This is my third stuffed pepper recipe from this site and my least favorite; I hated the allspice. The ground beef results in more calories than the Stuffed Peppers My Way and I feel that the spices are overwhelming. I won't make this again, sorry.
