Easy Seven Layer Vegetable Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2005
The dressing was so bland that I won't make this recipe again. It tasted like lettuce with mayonaise.

Ground Turkey Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2004
This casserole is simple and economical. Very easy to put together. My husband and I both really like it. I used whole-wheat pasta and added some chopped onion and garlic powder, as we like things spicy. I made it with ground turkey the first time and ground beef since. It is good comfort food. I didn't think there was too much cream cheese at all. I actually might use more next time.

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2003
I made this for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. I used fat-free sour cream and Durkee fried onions on top. I was a little turned off because you could definitely tell that canned beans were used, but I love the sauce--I will make it again but will experiement with fresh or frozen green beans.

German Rouladen

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2003
"Wow! This is DELICIOUS!" Those were my husband's exact words. This is a fabulous recipe. It wasn't nearly as time-consuming as I thought it would be, and I didn't have any trouble making the rolls. I think the trick is in how you slice the flank steak. I sliced mine the long way and was careful to make sure I had slices that were thick enough to hold together but thin enough to cook. I used French's Bold 'n Spicy brown mustard (don't use ordinary yellow mustard). I think it's the mustard that makes this better than other rouladen I've had. This recipe is a definite favorite at our house. It's not healthy, so we won't have it weekly or anything, but it is requested for birthday dinners, etc. A great fall or winter meal is rouladen, mashed potatoes, and acorn squash. If you want to lower the fat content, it tastes just as good if you slice the bacon strips in half the longway. Use the leaner half and discard the other portion.

Grandma's Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2003
My husband and I liked this chili, but I'm still looking for a recipe we like better. It was good, but I prefer a chili to have more of a tomato base. If I try this recipe again, I will add a can or two of tomato paste. I used Bush's hot 'n spicy chili beans instead of plain kidney beans, and for the canned tomatoes I used chopped tomatoes with jalapenos. I used Progresso's black bean soup, ready-to-serve, not condensed. I only added half the baked beans, as other reviews said it tasted too much like baked beans, and it came out good. I used lots of garlic powder, rather than fresh, and added extra chili powder, as we like our chili very spicy. I served it with with shredded cheddar and sour cream on top. Very filling, high in fiber, and low in fat. It was very fast and easy to throw together, and makes a LOT of chili. I did have it in my crock pot for about 4 hours on high, but my crock pot is old, so maybe 2 hours is enough in a newer pot.

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2003
Delicious. I used fat-free mayo, and no one could tell. Great to take to picnics and barbeques. An excellent way to get your family to eat broccoli!

Quick and Easy Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2003
My husband loved this, and he's not always crazy about Mexican food. To scorch the corn tortillas, I just layed them across the grate of my gas stove with the flame on medium. I took them off after about a minute. I tore them after they'd cooled. I boiled my chicken also, then saved the broth. I used fat-free sour cream and mixed it with the chicken, rather than layering it on the cheese (I used cheddar because that's what I had). For the enchilada sauce, I used one 10-oz. can of green enchilada sauce and one 10-oz. can of "hot and spicy" red enchilada sauce. I didn't coat the tortillas in the sauce, I layered like lasagna. I alternated the sauces when I layered, it added a little extra color. This has become a family favorite!

Artichoke Dip I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2003
This was OK. My guests really liked it, but it didn't have much of an "artichoke" flavor. I would call it "Baked Cheese Dip with Artichokes" because it does have more of a cheese flavor than an artichoke flavor. If I make it again, I'll double the amount of artichokes. I will continue searching for a great artichoke dip.

Cherry Poppyseed Twinks

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2002
Delicious: light and buttery. Cherry preserves add a nice sour filling. I found that making the "thumbprint" wide and deep provided the best results. I also baked them at 325 because they weren't getting done at 300. I baked until slightly brown on the edges. I made some with cherry preserves and some with blueberry. Both very good. Next time, I'm going to try some with lemon curd.

Injera

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2002
Injera is a a little tricky, but once you get the hang of it, it's easy. You pan HAS to be at the perfect temperature or else ANY injera will stick. It is designed to be laid flat on a plate and piled high with a thick stew. It has a bland taste and a spongey texture, which make it perfect for soaking up rich stews. You actually use it instead of utensils.

Country Corn Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2002
I served this at Thanksgiving dinner because my father likes scalloped corn. He (and everyone else) LOVED this dish. Everyone asked for the recipe. I used low-fat onion dip. Next time, I will reduce the butter by half. It was a little rich and it looked very greasy while baking.

Asparagus with Parmesan Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2002
Delicious. The asparagus had a roasted look and taste. I used very little olive oil but a lot of parmesan. Be sure to use freshly grated parmesan for best flavor.

Florentine Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2002
Good. It really is more of a spinach dip than an artichoke dip. The flavor of the artichokes is overpowered by the spinach. Still, it's good.

Reuben Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2002
Delicious. A big hit. Strain the sauerkraut well in advance. Squeezing it dry takes a while if it has not drained sufficiently. I used fat-free dressing and it tasted wonderful.

Rhubarb Custard Pie III

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2000
My husband really liked it but I thought it was too sweet (I like rhubarb to be tart). I had to bake the pie an additional 20 minutes to get the custard to set. The recipe doesn't specify how to beat the egg whites--glossy, soft peaks, stiff peaks? I beat them 'til glossy.

Cottage Cheese Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2000
A great way to serve potatoes. My family loved it. I used fat-free sour cream and cottage cheese and added extra cheddar--it turned out well. You have to be sure to leave the dish UNCOVERED while baking, or the sauce will be too thin. Let it stand for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Praline Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2000
Fantastic! My family loved this recipe. It's high in fat, so I don't plan to serve it often but it will be a staple for holiday dinners. I bought canned sweet potatoes, drained them and mashed them to save time.
