Greek Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2014
I really like this Greek style pasta salad. I didn't have any cherry tomatoes so I added 1/2 can each of white kidney beans and dark red ones. That's what's great about pasta salads...you can add or omit a few things as long as the main ingredients like the dressing and the feta cheese remain! And olives of course, which I usually don't slice. I just get the small sized ones and toss them in whole.

Asparagus and Mushroom Quiche

Reviewed: May 13, 2014
Very easy recipe and a great way to use up asparagus. I used swiss cheese for the shredded cheese variety. Using thicker cut bacon meant I didn't have to use as much. I just used 3 slices cut up in chunks. A basic tart recipe for the crust made it even better.

Vegan Brownies

Reviewed: May 4, 2014
I am not vegan but was looking for a chocolate cake or brownie recipe that didn't call for eggs. I didn't have eggs in the fridge and didn't feel like running to the grocery store. This recipe is a keeper and satisfied my chocolate urge. Like others, I made adjustments to the original recipe. After reading through several comments I decided to cut the oil to 1/2 what it calls for. I used cold strong coffee in place of water. I added the flour and coffee together and let it sit while I gathered the rest of the ingreds. Then I just added it all together (didn't sift...I forgot!) I used less sugar and replaced raw for white. Lastly, since I love the taste of chocolate, I added a bit more cocoa and stirred in about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Baked about 35 minutes and it was done. Next time I am adding walnuts!

Vanilla Glaze

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2013
Added cinnamon and nutmeg for icing on pumpkin bars since I didn't have cream cheese for frosting. Turned out great! Can easily be thinned or thickened. The additional spices add a nice color to it also.

Beef Tips

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
I changed a few things since I cook for only two. I used a boneless sirloin tip steak (less than 1 lb) and sliced it. I cooked sliced onions, fresh mushrooms, and minced garlic (from jar) together first in 1/2 the olive oil then set that aside while I sauteed the meat in additional oil which I had coated with some flour first. After it was browned I added a little water at a time (about a cup) and it thickened up nicely. I added the soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce before putting a lid on it and letting it simmer for about 1 hour. I didn't use the dry gravy mix because I thought it was fine without it...just added a bit more water. Served over noodles. I added no salt to the recipe but added a little garlic powder and pepper.

Cheesy Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
So glad I found this recipe. I had misplaced this recipe that my aunt had given me 5 years ago! I make a few changes to lower the fat: reduced fat chicken soup, reduced fat sour cream, and reduced fat cheddar cheese. I also cut down on the butter over the cereal mixture (and use Corn Flakes). It's also nice to saute the onions in olive oil first so they're not 'crunchy'. I like this recipe because it's easy to cut in 1/2 for our small family or double for larger celebrations--it's a must for Easter and Christmas in our extended family!
