Brilliant! I also shredded some Beauty Heart (Watermelon) radishes and will serve at Thanksgiving dinner for something light and crisp!

Turkey Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2008
Yum! I used a small red onion as I had no green onions. This went together very easily. I couldn't wait 8 hours for full flavor meld, but waiting only 10 minutes, it was delicious. I think this would be an excellent post-Thanksgiving recipe. Thanks!

Raspberry Jalapeno Jelly

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2008
I'm giving this recipe a moderate review - it was a good concept, but the recipe seemed to be missing quite a bit of information. For instance, what is the yield? The small type said "one pint." I got 2.5 pints out of it. It was a little irritating as I had to quickly sterilize more jars. Also, the "1/3 (6 fluid oz) container of liquid pectin" was confusing as well. I ended up using 1 pouch from a 2 pouch pack of Certo. The results were very good, but the recipe really needs to be edited for clarification.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2008
This was so good - I had a pint of blueberries and a zucchini from the CSA and was looking for something to do with this. On a whim, I decided to sub lemon extract for the vanilla and add lemon zest. It was wonderful! I made 2 full size loaves and brought one to work, where it was immediately decimated.

Thanksgiving Leftover Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2007
Very good - I halved the recipe and messed up and added the full amount of water. Poured off a bit of the sauce, but it was still pretty good. I had leftover stuffing so I sprinkled it on top. Looking forward to having on the day after Thanksgiving!

Watermelon Fire and Ice Salsa

Reviewed: May 30, 2007
Really liked the contrast of the cool watermelon with the jalapeno. I changed it up a bit and added Italian parsley (not a big cilantrophile) and omitted the green pepper (not on hand). Just a really nice refreshing salsa on a hot muggy day! Thanks!

This recipe looked great, but didn't get a good reception from my family. Thanks for posting it, though!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2007
Yum! This got a thumbs up from the whole family - the 10 year old really liked it. I used a can of evaporated milk I had on hand as I just had skim milk - this made it very nice and creamy. Thanks for the great recipe and for a good way to get rid of the Easter ham!

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2006
Perfection! I've made these several times and just did another double batch for a party this afternoon. I used hickory smoked bacon, and the aroma was lovely. Please remember to follow the suggestions regarding the cooking on a rack. I used a wire rack over a foil-lined cookie sheet. If you cook directly on the cookie sheet, the brown sugar will burn onto the cookie sheet and the smokie itself - if it's on the rack, the smokie will happily roast away wrapped in it's little bacony coating safely away from burning sugar. I also found that no toothpicks are needed as the bacon will shrink onto the smokie. Dang, I'm hungry for a batch now!

Make Ahead Lunch Wraps

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2006
Holy Moley this makes a lot! I used 2 packs of the burrito sized tortillas and got 20 LARGE wraps! I had to farm them out to my dad to use them up. They are excellent and very filling and economical. I also followed another reviewers suggestion and threw in a taco seasoning packet with the brown rice when it was cooking. I thought I didn;t like beans, but this recipe made a burrito-believer out of me. One note of caution: have a very, very large mixing bowl to combine everything. It came to the top of the largest Pyrex bowl I have! Excellent recipe!

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2005
This was real fast and real good. Hubby who is pretty picky gave this a thumbs up! The balsamic vinegar gave this a really nice sweetness to the sauce. The chicken breasts were gone (only made 3), but I couldn't bear to dump the sauce. Serve this with some pasta to fully enjoy this! Yum!

Tortilla Soup II

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2004
Very good. Not too spicy, but it has a nice kick to it. I had made chicken tacos and used the leftover chicken in this, so there was a hint of taco seasoning there. This type of soup is going to be better the next day, after the flavors blend a bit. I'm looking forward to bringing this to work tomorrow! I anticipate this will be one of my cold weather staples (and darn good for clearing out your sinuses when you're sick!) Thanks, Sheila!

Beer Butt Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2002
This is incredible! My 18" Weber was too small, so I cooked it indoors at 350 for about 1-1 1/2 hours. Also, I didn't have beer handy, so I used an empty Coke can that I filled half-way up with some wine & threw some garlic and basil leaves into the mix. This is the best chicken ever - with the upright posture, the fat drains off and if you line the roasting pan with foil, cleanup is so easy. This is how we're making chicken from now on!

Caramels

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2001
As noted in other reviews, it did take a long time to get to 250 - over 1/2 hour. Also, I did do a 1 1/2 batch, since the can of evaporated milk had 4 oz left over. I'm still waiting for it to cool. It looks like it hasn't set right, but I might see if I can dump it into the pot again and crank up the temp to get it to set. Or we'll just have lots and lots of ice cream topping. Either way, it's quite yummy! Since this was my first candy making foray, I think I'll give this one another shot - it is tasty!

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2001
Pretty good. I threw on some garlic powder and it sure smelled good when I came home from work. My daughter loved the drumstick and the leftovers made a great chicken noodle soup. The tinfoil at the bottom of the crock pot was real helpful to cut down on the grease! Will make this again!

Baked Ziti II

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2001
Although I liked it, my family thought that the cheese mixture was overpowering. When I do this again, I will either cut the ricotta/mozzerella or add more sauce and noodles to compensate. But it was tasty.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2001
I only had 2 bananas, so a halved the recipe and made 6 muffins. Went over like gangbusters! I can't wait till I have a bunch of brown bananas so I can make the full recipe. (I can't believe I'm actually wishing for my bananas to go mushy!) Thanks again - this will be my new banana bread recipe (Sorry Better Homes and Garden!)

Italian Wedding Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2001
Pretty tasty! I followed the advice and cooked the orzo separately, then added it to the bowls prior to serving. Also, I thawed some frozen precooked meatballs and cut them in quarters to add to the soup,making it even easier! This is going into the recipe rotation!
