Cottage Noodles and Cabbage

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2002
This recipes is delicious. I made minor modifications -- cooked the cabbage and onions till very soft, used 2 cups cottage cheese, and added 1 lb. sliced, browned, & drained turkey kielbasa. It was a very good main dish. My husband (who's not very fond of cabbage) had two BIG servings!!

Bow Tie Medley

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2003
This is a GREAT recipe....very fresh using summer's ingredients. I used more veggies than called for but followed the rest of the recipe as is. I really enjoyed this meal.

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2003
This is very good cornbread. I've always used the "box" mixes because I couldn't find a recipe that tasted "as good." This one does. As far as the crumbliness goes -- if you cut it when it is very hot, it'll crumble; if you let it cool a bit, it holds its shape just fine. A simple recipe too.

Peppercorn Ranch Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2003
I was skeptical...but this was GREAT. I used all leftovers from the fridge -- spaghetti noodles, steamed carrots and cauliflower. I omitted the onion (didn't want) and brocolli (didn't have), substituted red bell pepper for green, and used lowfat "parmesan peppercorn ranch" dressing. I've been dieting and made this for a quick lunch yesterday. Give it a try. The pasta really mellows out the peppercorn taste in the dressing. I'll save all my leftover dinner veggies from now on to use in this salad!

Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2002
This was great. It wasn't too "cranberry-y." My husband doesn't like cranberry anything and thought that this was just a great BBQ sauce until I told him. HE said it is a definite keeper. I've used a bone-in pork roast as well as boneless pork ribs and cooked on low for about 6 hours and it was incredibly tender. The "gravy" was nice on white rice.

Pumpkin Fluff Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2003
THIS IS SOOOOOO GOOD!!! Absolutely everyone raved about this....I served with cinnamon graham crackers, gingersnaps (my favorite), as well as apple wedges (straight from the orchard). This does make a HUGE amount -- my party only had 6 people so I have LOTS left. This would be good for a large crowd -- perfect for fall parties.

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2002
These were very good. I worried about the zucchini being too watery, so I shredded it into a collander and added about 1/2 tsp. of salt. I let it drain for about 30 minutes (pressing slightly with wooden spoon)...yielding about 2/3 cup water. I will definitely make these again.

Giant Ding Dong Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2002
The flavor of this cake was very good, but I guess I'm not a bit "Ding Dong" fan....I thought there was too much cream filling in one place. I made this again but as a 3-layer torte with half the cream between each layer and covered with the chocolate glaze. As a torte -- it was one of the BEST cakes I've ever made. The comments were "which bakery did you get this from?" -- I love refrigerated chocolate cake and this one is AWESOME!

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: May 11, 2002
This was awesome. I stretched the sauce a bit by adding 1 cup of plain tomato sauce to 1 cup salsa then served it over white rice with a side of brocolli. My 4 year old asked when I was going to make it again!

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
I must say I was way hesitant to try this (with the cream cheese) and am more than pleasantly pleased! It was delish!!! After enough stirring, the cc and butter blend to what looks like melted marshmallows, and then I just added milk to the right consistency. I upped the meal by turning it into Pasta Primavera -- with the addition of sauteed red bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, garlic, asparagus & shrimp -- a PERFECT Lenten meal. I'm dying for the leftovers today for lunch!!!!!!!!!

Mock Champagne

Reviewed: May 23, 2006
I made this exactly as presented for my daughter's first communion brunch. It went over well with the adults as well as the children. As recommended by another reviewer, I made an ice ring in my bundt pan out of an additional 1-liter of ginger ale & apackage of fresh raspberries to keep the punch cold. I liked this better than "regular" punches with sherbert floating in them. It has a nice light, crisp taste.

Creamy Pasta Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2002
The really was delicious. I made it last night--it was super easy and so creamy. I used light sour cream. The recommendation to top it with mozzarella and cover baked were good calls. My kids were a bit skeptical of the spinach, but ate it anyways!! You've gotta try it.

Taco Cornbread Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2002
This was great. I served with sour cream, salsa, shredded lettuce, and diced tomato on the side. I used only 1 cup of the cheese on the top of the pizza only (to cut a few calories). This is a keeper!!

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2002
This is an excellent recipe....I made it a bit "low fat" by using light sour cream and making buttermilk from skim milk and vinegar. I also reduced the amount of raisens to about 1 cup and it was perfect. I didn't even "knead" it in the bowl, just transferred the batter directly to the baking dish for shaping and baking. Everyone asked for the recipe. Excellent toasted in the morning!

Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2002
I've been making this same recipe for years. I always use fresh cranberries (which I keep in the freezer and add directly to the batter) and substitute applesauce for half-to-all of the oil. It still comes out moist, just a little less heavy. I love this bread!!!

Strawberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
Replaced shrooms with red onions and left out the bacon. Use a GOOD quality bottled dressing and you're good to go! I did toss with about 1 Tbs. of poppy seeds for a little "crunch." My mom doesn't veer off the "normal" food path and this is NOT something she'd eat. But, to be polite, she tried it and raved throughout the whole meal. A keeper!

Cinnamon Hazelnut Biscotti

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2002
THESE ARE AWESOME!!! I made these last week for a baby shower and everyone RAVED about them. They were easier than I had expected. I substituted slivered almonds and rough diced them to make it easier to cut. You HAVE to try these. Next time I'm going to drizzle a bit of chocolate over them.

BBQ Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2003
I've been wanting to make this for a long time. I mixed my BBQ sauce right with the shredded meat of 3 breasts before then spread it over the crust.....sprinkled it with a diced fresh jalapeno (didn't have pepponcini)and covered with mozzarella and cheddar (didn't have cilantro or red onion). IT WAS GREAT!!! I can't wait to try it again WITH the red onion. The hot pepper gave it just a bit of heat. Went great with the chicken.
