Kickin' Collard Greens

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
This was my first time cooking greens because I don't eat them, but when I sampled at the end to see if they were tender enough, they were, and the taste actually wasn't gross to me, which must mean they're delicious. The family loved them at the Thanksgiving table! (Being a real Southerner, I doubled the bacon per other reviews.)

Seven Layer Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
I've always loved these and disagree with cutting the butter. If you want to be healthy, it's better to avoid these altogether. They are far too delicious and rich for an everyday treat.

Dad's Pan-Fried Green Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
Yum! I don't like the "fresh" taste of green beans because I was raised on the canned kind that are cooked almost to disintegration. This sauce made them enjoyable to me, even though I could still taste them. I used red wine vinegar instead of balsamic, because that's what I had. I used two 12 oz. bags of the beans that you steam in the bag, which made it quicker, and the sauce covered them fine.

Creamy Caramel Flan

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
I loved this, but I don't normally like the texture of flan, custard etc. This was more "cheesecakey", therefore right up my alley. I was worried about not being able to spread the carmelized sugar enough, but it spread out when cooked. My guest enjoyed adding some fresh strawberries that happened to be on the table as well.

Macaroni and Cheese for Two

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
This was my first time doing Thanksgiving, and I needed a recipe like Mom used to make (before she got sick) because mac and cheese casserole is required at every celebration in my extended family. This was hit - what a relief! I tripled it and cooked it in a 9 x 11 pan. Next time, I may add a little more milk and egg for added fluff, and do a smaller pan or larger recipe because it wasn't as deep as we prefer it.

Whole Wheat Pumpkin-Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
These were good, but they did taste "healthy". I used apple butter for the oil, brown sugar only, an added Craisins. I also added 1/4 flax meal because I need to use it up. The batter was thicker than I expected, but maybe that was my flax. I should have taken a little more care in shaping the tops after dropping them into the muffin tin, because they cooked in the original shape. I ended up with 12 regular muffins, plus 9 mini-muffins to finish the batch.

Makeover Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2008
We enjoyed these. Just FYI, for others who are not familiar, the batter is really thick and has more fruit/carrots/nuts than muffin...which is fine, I just didn't anticipate it and was afraid I did something wrong when I got ready to bake. Maybe I did, but they were still good! I also only had 12 muffin cups, so I baked the rest of the batter in the bottom of my loaf pan for about 10 extra minutes and cut it into bars.

Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
Based on prior reviews, I added baking powder, added baking soda, used applesauce for oil, and used brown sugar for 1/2 cup of the white sugar. I did Splenda for the other 1/4 cup of sugar and omitted the coffee because I didn't have it. Skeptical hubby and I both liked these. All we tasted was chocolate. The batter smelled "beany", but the finished product didn't.

Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
I love this because I'm lazy and it's easy. I serve it almost every time I entertain because people love it. I usually offer flavored dippers like Cracked Black Pepper Triscuits or garlic pita chips for those who want more flavor.

Crunchy Turkey Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
Per earlier reviews, I halved the lemon juice and apple (used golden delicious), and added about 1/4 cup crushed pineapple and more turkey. We like sweet and savory (as opposed to sour or tart) and it was perfect in a pita pocket. I think the doubling of the sauce is strictly a personal preference. We like only enough sauce to hold the other ingredients together, so I did not double and felt was juicier than I would prefer.

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
I made this for Thanksgiving. My family loved it, including my "vegetarian" sister who doesn't eat many vegetables. (Don't ask.) It was easy and tasty!

Cajun Style Baked Sweet Potato

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2008
Excellent! I cut the potatoes into fries per some of the other reviews, sprayed them with cooking spray, and shook them in a bag with the spices. I used 3 potatoes and a double recipe of the spices. I baked them in two batches at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. The heat was just right for us. I still have a gentle tingle on my tongue, but no pain. Hubby loved them! He said, "Ummm...girl...you can cook!"

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
We really enjoyed this, but I only used one box of spinach and that was plenty to me! I made it with leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. I prepped it and stored it in the freezer in one of the oven-safe disposable plastic dishes with a lid. I thawed it and baked it later. Next time, I would up the sauce a little, because I was barely able to cover the top layer.

Lasagna Roll Ups

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
This is a great recipe. I made half the recipe to use up some lasagna noodles and ricotta. I was able to get 8.5 rolls in an 8x8 dish (I cut down one of the noodles to make it fit perfectly in the pan.) I left out the tofu and doubled the spinach. The edges of my noodles got a little crispy, but that could be resolved by adding sauce or covering for part of the cooking time. They were wheat noodles, so that may have been part of the issues. Awesome dish for my sister the vegetarian that the rest of us can also enjoy!

Cheesecake Cookie Cups

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
I made these to use up a non-preferred flavor of cookie mix I received in a jar as a gift. So easy and delicious!

Nitey Night Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
My mom made these when I was a kid and we loved them. They're great for parties/showers because you can customize the color with food coloring. The melt in your mouth texture is awesome. It is critical to turn off the oven when you put the cookies in or they will brown, when they should be white.

Veggie Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
Yum! I did this on a sundried tomato wrap to cut carbs. I ate it yesterday for dinner, ate another small helping after dinner, ate it again today for a snack, and made my husband eat it for his snack. The next time I entertain, I may roll this in a wrap and slice it for some colorful and tasty pinwheel appetizers. I don't even like veggies, but I loved this. The cream mixture is delicious!!

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
EASY! I used salsa instead of opening tomato sauce and added more cheese for our preference. Loved it!

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a hit. I doubled the pecans and felt it was just barely enough topping to cover ad 9 x 13. I added cinnamon, but think I will also add nutmeg next time. We normally eat our potatoes sweeter than this, but the topping makes it so yummy!

Chicken Salsa Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
I've made this before (from another recipe) with two additions that make it awesome - a can of drained corn and sliced black olives. The sweetness of the corn is a nice contrast to the salsa.
