Absolutely Ultimate Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2014
Great recipe though I tweaked it a bit on multiple repeats. Cook as above saving a few slices of bacon raw. Once cooked bacon is removed add raw bacon to soup for added bacon flavor. Do not return the crisped bacon to the pan until the soup is finished. -To reduce fat, evaporated milk works well instead of cream. Liquid smoke can be used for 'bacon' flavor without the fat. Saute in coconut or other vegetable/olive oil for a healthier alternative. -To make this meat and dairy free,saute in coconut oil, substitute one can coconut milk and 2 tsp. coriander seed and dash of cayenne instead of smoky flavor.

Bill's Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2014
Though this is ok my version has less fat, tastes just as good and is less work. 1 lb sausage of your choice, we like 'Hot' pork sausage, 2 heaping Tbs. flour or 3Tbs. gluten free alternative flour mix (like Pamela's brand),1 can evaporated milk (reg or skim), salt and pepper or additional seasonings to taste and additional fresh whole milk as needed. Brown sausage well on medium high heat until you have browned bits on the bottom of the pan-cast iron works best. Stir in flour (w/o removing the sausage) and let it cook a few minutes stirring occasionally. Add canned milk while stirring and bring to a boil. Once boil has been reached and gravy has thickened taste, adjust seasonings as needed and add additional milk if it gets too thick or you need to stretch the servings out or like less sausage in your gravy. Enjoy.

Leftover Pizza Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: May 17, 2014
So halve the cheese, skip the butter altogether, and use 'egg beaters' or 2 eggs, 2 egg whites if you're concerned about the fat and calories...still great taste and loads less fat! Great recipe, thanks.

Best Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2014
This is a very old recipe, used by my grandmother and great grandmother exactly as written here. The milk/flour once it reaches a boil begins to thicken and looks like kids paste-that's what you're going for, then COOL it thoroughly. The recipe is for REGULAR sugar not confectioners sugar and to use confectioners sugar does not work properly. Once the 'paste' is cooled cream together the butter and white sugar well before combining the two mixtures. Then let it beat on stand mixer at least 10 minutes. It is the best frosting ever.

Sunshine Juice

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2013
First, I need to make a distinction between smoothies and juice. When you 'juice', you get a very rapid and easily digestible 'shot' of vitamins and minerals more quickly into your system because the fiber in fruit and veggies doesn't have to be digested (which takes much longer to travel through your system and get into your bloodstream.) That said, whether juicing or making a smoothie this is an excellent recipe but experiment with any and all fruits and veggies. Try 'juicing' kale, apples and a lemon for a super energy boost.

Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
This is my 'go to' recipe with just a couple revisions. Since we don't do white sugar in our home, I substitute 1 cup real maple syrup. I add one mashed/baked sweet potato to compensate for the liquid then double the cinnamon and cloves and use 1 TBS. of fresh grated ginger which bumps up the spices a notch.
