Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2007
This salad is DELICIOUS!! I left out the sour cream because DH is lactose intolerant. I also added 1 Fuji apple chopped into bite-sized pieces for some extra crunch. DH doesn't like green vegetables, but loved this! Thanks!

Cranberry Swirl Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2002
Delicious cake! I did increase the ingredients by 1/4 as recommended by another review, plus added 1 c. chopped pecans to the batter. I used Cran-Fruit for Chicken instead of a can of cranberry sauce because that was what I had on hand. It comes in two flavors -- Cranberry-Raspberry and Cranberry-Orange. I used the raspberry. I took the cake out after 50 minutes and it was slightly overdone, so will try 40-45 minutes next time.

DELICIOUS!! I used grated cheddar instead of processed cheese and had to add a litte more milk. I also added some cayenne after adding the cheese.

Elvis Presley Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2005
I take this to work regularly and it always disappears quickly. I have used yellow cake mix as well as the white and I think I prefer the yellow.

Georgia's Tennessee Jam Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
Fabulous cake! I followed the recipe exactly and it was perfect. I frosted it with Caramel Frosting, but think the Cream Cheese Frosting would be yummy too! Maybe next time I'll try caramel between the layers and Cream Cheese outside the cake -- the best of both worlds!

Old Fashioned Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: May 22, 2010
Delicious pie! It is "soupy", but I've never had a baked strawberry pie, that wasn't soupy. Strawberries aren't like cherries or apples, so they make a pie that is more like a cobbler with two crusts. If you want a firm strawberry pie, you need to make the cold, unbaked kind with a glaze.

Oriental Asparagus Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2009
Delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and it is wonderful. We love asparagus, but were getting tired of steamed or grilled. This salad is perfect. Very quick to prepare and it's yummy!!

Asparagus Bruschetta

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
DELISH!! I served this before a barbecue and got rave reviews! I used fresh grated parmesan instead of the blue cheese and added a little more salt, but that is a matter of taste. I'll be making this again soon.

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
The first time I made this exactly by the recipe and it was very good, but I felt it needed more spice. The second time, I used 1/2 c. vegetable oil and 1/2 unsweetened applesauce plus used 2 tablespoons of ginger instead of 2 teaspoons and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon instead of 1. I baked it as a cake in a tube pan (45 minutes) and topped the cake with a simple frosting made of butter, confectioner's sugar, and lemon juice (put it on the top and let it drizzle down the sides). I grated candied ginger and sprinkled that over the frosting. It made a delicious, professional-looking cake that got rave reviews from my guests! This is perfect for the holidays -- sweet, but not too sweet.

Mediterranean Pasta

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
Delicious recipe and quick to fix. DH is lactose intolerant, so I left out the cheese. I think it would be great with shrimp or scallops.

Aunt Dee Dee's Apple Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2008
I made the recipe exactly as written the first time and it was very good. I needed a quick, but homemade, dish for DH's snack day at work. I didn't have apple pie filling, so substituted raspberry pie filling and omitted the cinnamon -- DELISH!! Raspberry pie filling is sometimes hard to find, but I'll be stocking up when I find it. It was better than the apple! Very moist and tasty!

Super Easy Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
Easy and delicious! I put everything into the crockpot in the AM and it was ready to eat by supper. I used one teaspoon of cayenne and it was perfect -- just spicy enough. It's not as heavy as beef chili, but still has a nice chili taste. I'll be making this often.

Easy Peach Crisp II

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2012
YUMMY! I followed the recipe exactly except for using fresh peaches. I thought there would be too much "crisp" when I was putting it in the pan, but it baked down and is perfect. I'll be making this again with our next batch of peaches.

King Ranch Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
I was short on time so used a rotisserie chicken, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It was a huge hit. My son even had "thirds". I'll be making this again soon! Easy and DELISH.

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
Followed the recipe exactly and this is fabulous! I served the Scampi over Garlic-Herb Linguine made locally. It was perfect! DH thought it was the best pasta I've ever made. Thanks!

BLT Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
A lady used to bring this dip to work for Snack Days and it was my favorite. I was thrilled to find the recipe. I followed it exactly and it is delicious!

Sugar Pie I

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
Delicious pie! I followed the recipe exactly. We love lemons and this is the perfect blend of sweet and tart. "3 lemons" is 1/2 cup of juice--you'll get a bit more if you microwave the lemons for about 15 seconds before squeezing. If you squeeze them too hard or press to extract the juice, you might get some bitterness from the pith. A hand-held wooden reamer is best, IMHO. I served it after it had cooled (just room temp) and topped with a dollop of Cool Whip and a strawberry. YUM!

Southern Praline Pecan Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
This is a very easy and quick recipe that makes a yummy cake. I made mini-cakes using the Nordicware Mini Bundt pan. I used pecan meal instead of chopped pecans in the bottoms. They were done after baking about 17 minutes. After cooling, I topped each with a small dollop of cream cheese frosting and then drizzled each with thin caramel frosting. They made a spectacular presentation!

Cranberry Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
Delicious! Just sweet enough -- very tasty. Only made one change, because I didn't have orange juice, and substituted cranberry juice. I was afraid the muffins would be pink, but they weren't. Really yummy. Will definitely be making these again, especially since DH is lactose intolerant, so these are perfect for him!
