Best Ever Crab Cakes

Reviewed: May 13, 2012
We substituted 1/2 cup crushed sesame crackers (gluten free) for the ritz crackers, 1/2 tsp Old Bay for tarragon, and added ground black pepper & celery seed. These turned out perfectly! Browned cakes completely on one side, flipped, cooked lightly on second side, then put under low broiler until everything else was ready. This made 8 small patties for crab cake benedict, served with Knorr hollandaise sauce, which we seasoned with extra lemon juice and a little cajun hot sauce for kicks.

Pumpkin Pie II

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
I used the Shortbread crust on this site (did not pre-bake crust), everything turned out quite well. I also cut way back on sugar - only used one cup.

Bacon Wrapped Barbeque Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
Fantastique! I bought two pounds of shrimp, and I cut my [one pounds' worth of] bacon slices into thirds instead of halves. Had a little shrimp leftover (made a quick scampi out of them & threw in the fridge for later). I did not use toothpicks, the bacon ends overlapped perfectly so I put that side down on the rack. Used my broiling pan, worked perfectly. I was looking for a slam-dunk appetizer, this was definitely a hit!!

Grilled Turkey Legs

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
The flavor on these is amazing. UNFORTUNATELY, turkey legs are such a pain to eat. We loved the taste, but ended up greasy and annoyed by the time we were done. I may try again with turkey breasts on the bone.

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
I would definitely call this dessert restaurant-quality, served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. I did cut back on the sugar by about 2 tablespoons, we like our "sweets" a little less sweet! Omitted walnuts, used smart balance 50/50 butter and increased chocolate chips to 1 cup.

Breakfast Casserole III

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
Yum! I halved the recipe (fed three of us) and used frozen cubed hashbrowns. Used garlic instead of onion, 3 whole eggs & 3 egg whites. Added a can of chopped green chilis and 1/4 cup of reduced-fat sour cream. Used reduced-fat mexican cheese blend instead of cheddar. Sprinkled sliced green onions on top in the last 5 minutes. I cooked in a 2 quart casserole, and it took longer to cook than the recipe instructed, I would probably use a 11x 7 glass pan instead next time. SOOOO good! There were no leftovers.

Veronica's Hot Spinach, Artichoke and Chile Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
Perfect! I was tempted to put in the entire 4 oz. can of chopped jalapenos, I'm glad I didn't. We like spicy, but it was just right to appease everyone's tastebuds as-is. I used reduced-fat cream cheese & mayo, and a regular 14 oz. can of artichoke hearts, not marinated. I also used a three-cheese blend, parmesan-romano-asiago. Yummy!

Tomato Barley Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
Good soup! I added some chicken for my hubby's benefit. Used veggie broth. The only herb I added was to simmer a bay leaf in the soup. I did throw a handful of frozen chopped spinach in for the last ten minutes. That made it perfect.

Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
I'm giving this 4 starts because I think when I halved the recipe I didn't use half the beans. My soup turned out rather... well, BEANY. Regardless, I still would use twice the veggies called for even at normal quantities, and I didn't care for the consistency of the meats after they simmered in the soup for 3 & 1/2 hours. I will try this again, I'm confident that it's good as written.

Oven Barbecued Beef Brisket I

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
Mine came out tough. May have been the quality of the brisket I bought. It was a lot of cooking just to be disappointed.

Chewy Coconut Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
I subbed: whole-wheat flour, 1 3/4 cups natural turbinado sugar, Smart Balance 50/50 butter blend, 1 cup (unsweetened!) shredded coconut, 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips. UNBELIEVEABLE!!! Rich, yummy, delish. Next time I will sub 1/2 cup rolled oats for 1/2 cup of the flour. Took 30+ minutes to cook.

Slow Cooker Latin Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
I was looking to make soup with ingredients I had in the cupboard, used this for inspiration. (Did not slow cook.) The changes I made: used chicken breast, no red bell pepper, no cilantro, no allspice, included liquid from black beans. Added celery, carrots, frozen corn kernals, and 3 cups of chicken broth. I had an 8oz can of "El Pato" Jalapeno Salsa, it was perfect. Garnished with Frank's Red Hot Sauce. So delicious! Thank you for a wonderful base.

Tina's Shortbread Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
These are shortbread cookies, not sweet & gooey chocolate chip cookies! That said, we LOVE them! I used whole-wheat flour (skipped the sifting), smart balance 50/50 butter blend, and natural sugar. Added some extra chocolate chips to make up for the walnuts that I omitted. The cookies take about 22 minutes in my oven. YUM! EASY!

Cream of Asparagus Soup I

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
So good, but I did alter a bit. Sauteed 2 sliced red potatoes for about 10 minutes with onions, carrots, celery and garlic. Then added broth & seasonings, one cup frozen chopped spinach & 2 cups frozen broccoli florets, simmered for 10 more minutes. Added one can asparagus (cut into small pieces) and the half-n-half, brought back to simmer, turned off immediately. YUM! Did not need flour, not concerned about the soup being really thick.

Pumpkin Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
Surprisingly good! Only used two cans of black beans, didn't drain completely. I did not puree any of the ingredients. Added chopped celery and carrots, sauteed with the onions. Used veggie broth & 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar. I really want to try this with 3 tbsp red wine vinegar next time. No need for salt - so many of the ingredients have it added already! Hubby garnished w/ tabasco, I sprinkled a little "Frank's Red Hot".

Basil and Pesto Hummus

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
This was good and quick. I do agree that lemon juice is necessary. Served with celery and carrots, was a yummy & healthy option next to the other high-fat appetizers that I served.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
This was VERY good. I felt like maybe it was lacking something however, some kind of spice, maybe a little heat? I used a couple of splashes Frank's Red Hot Sauce per another reviewer's suggestion, I think I would use more next time. Or maybe a small can of green ortega chilis. Also, I used sour cream instead of mayo (per many reviewers), next time I will try as written.

German Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
VERY very good. I did blot the water out with a papertowel. Served w/ sour cream for the adults and ketchup for the kids. Yum! We all wished we had more.

Brownie Mix

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
This is a pretty good recipe, except: there is too much flour and too much sugar. I need to experiment more, but my basic feeling is that 1 - 1 & 1/4 cups of flour and 1/3 - 1/2 cup white sugar would be better. A pinch of salt is good too. I subbed a 4oz container of applesauce for 1/2 of the oil to cut back on fat. REALLY YUMMY WITH A LITTLE VANILLA ICE CREAM!
