Goat Cheese and Spinach Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2006
I used spicy chevre and added in some other seasonings like garlic powder and tabasco. This recipe is designed for oven cooking, without a whole lot of bread crumbs it would be impossible to BBQ, and only marginally easier in a skillet. I added an egg which seemed to help it hold together better. When these come out of the oven all golden, I put a dollop of chevre on top and they taste divine. I am on a diet, and this is one thing that fits the bill for high protein, low fat and carbs, and great taste.

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: May 15, 2006
This is the easiest and best bread I've ever made! I don't care for how my machine bakes the bread, so I opt to use just the dough setting, allow it to rise a 2nd time and then bake my own loaf or rolls in the oven. I also substitute beer for the water, for a very subtle yeastier beer flavor to the bread, which is heavenly with honey butter. Also try mixing whole garlic cloves into the bread for a really delicious garlic bread.

Pudding Poke Cake

Reviewed: May 15, 2006
It doesn't get much easier than this! Although I do prefer the non-instant type pudding, which works just as well, but takes a little more time. There are many combo possibilities with this recipe - banana cake w/banana cream pudding, chocolate/chocolate, white cake/coconut pudding, etc. Top w/whipped cream and you've got a super dessert!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2006
This is a very tasty but heavy dish. Good to couple it with perhaps grilled fish or chicken and some steamed veggies to lighten up the meal. To reduce cooking time, slice the potatoes, place in casserole dish with some water, and microwave for about 6 minutes. Then you really only need to bake long enough to meld the flavors - about 30 minutes.

Pineapple Angel Food Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2006
Sooo good and sooo easy. Good idea to keep a box of angel food cake mix and a can of crushed pineapple on hand for those emergency situations where you need a dessert FAST!

Better Than Sex Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2006
It's always nice to have some quick tricks to dress up a box cake. This was very good, and is a nice alternative to frosting. I had a bag of Heath bits so I used those instead. We didn't have any Cool Whip, but I think this tasted fine without it. To me, not "better than sex", but still very good. My other favorite way to dress up a boxed cake is with pineapple upside down cake - some butter and brown suger, pineapple rings and maraschino cherries and voila!

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2005
Very good and easy chocolate pudding recipe. One note however - be careful with your cornstarch. Make sure you add milk to cornstartch rather than adding the cornstarch to the milk. I ended up with lots of clumps of cooked cornstarch that made it a little like chocolate tapioca pudding! Still a good flavor, just some weird rubbery chunks floating around because the cornstarch didn't get disolved. I'll definitely make again though.

Libby's® Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2005
This is a good cheesecake, but has a very mild pumpkin taste, and not a traditional cheesecake consistancy. I think I will try a couple more eggs and up the pumpkin a bit. Also needs more spice - will try pumpkin pie spice next time. Lastly, the cooking time wasn't adequate for me. With other 9" cheesecakes, I typically bake at 325 for 90 min, I think that would have worked better with this recipe.

Pecan Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2005
What's not to like? This tastes like everything I want in a pecan pie, only better, because I added 1/2 cup of Amaretto instead of 3 tablespoons... Especially good in a shortbread crust!

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2005
I tried this soup today, with a few mods... I put a whole small yellow onion in the food processor to chop it pretty fine and added all of it. I didn't want to hassle with cooking a whole squash, so I used a frozen pkg of cooked squash that was 14 oz cube from Safeway. I used a single can of chicken broth, also 14oz. Only used 1 tsp of chicken bouillon granules, skipped the marjoram and cayenne but did add a dash of nutmeg and garlic. I only added half an 8oz pkg of cream cheese since my batch was so much smaller. Pureed in blender until smooth and served with a dollup of (not Daisy) sour cream. It is very good. Along the lines of other creamy soups like tomato. Would be very good with grilled cheese sandwiches.

Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
What could be more comforting than warm bread pudding? It's the ultimate comfort food. I used whole wheat bread, and wound up using about 4 cups worth, but not tightly packed. I used Splenda instead of sugar, and a bit of cinnamon. This baked up great, but I found the milk/egg mixture was really too much volume for the amt of bread. Next time (yes there definitely will be) I will use 4 cups packed bread cubes and 3 cups milk/3 eggs instead. For the sauce, I used evaporated nonfat milk, cooked with brown instead of white sugar, and at the end instead of vanilla added amaretto liquor. This was fantastic. And the sauce definitely makes the dessert.

Peppermint Meringues

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2005
Let me save you the headache of making the mistake I did... I have never made meringue before, and I thought, "How could 2 egg whites possible make 48???" So I doubled the recipe. I never did get "stiff peaks" so I dumped and started over, this time following the recipe...mostly. I didn't have candycanes, so I used peppermint extract and green food coloring. I followed one other poster's advice and used a ziploc baggie with a corner cut out to pipe out perfect little hershey's kiss sized meringues. I got at least 48! I found that after cooking for the 1.5 hrs, I only had to let them sit in there for about an hour more, and they were perfectly done. Very easy, no fat, probably could be done with splenda to be low cal as well.

Pea Salad I

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2005
Well, I didn't quite follow the recipe to a "T", but recipes are just guidelines, right? Anyways, I only added 4 eggs, skipped the lettuce, used Miracle Whip instead of mayo and less than a cup, no sugar, and only about 1 cup of shredded cheddar. I boiled my eggs 8 minutes, just because that's always how I've made hard boiled eggs, I'm not sure what the difference would be - they turned out fine. By my calculations, I've cut the calories and fat by half or more. I didn't layer, just mixed it all together. Still, this tastes great! And with the adjustments, it's something we can eat more than once a year without feeling toooo guilty!

Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2005
I guess when it comes to peanut butter, I'm a real nut... This just wasn't my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe. It bakes up very light and crumbly, and doesn't have a strong peanut butter taste at all. I prefer a more dense moist cookie, and would imagine you could substitute some of the margarine (I used butter) for peanut butter - maybe 2 cups pb 1/4 cup butter. I just don't know for sure, but I didn't care for this recipe. Not that it's a bad recipe, just not what I was looking for.

Boston Baked Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2005
This is a great recipe. I soaked the beans overnight, but skipped the simmering for 2 hrs part and put them straight into the crock pot. On high, it took about 10 hrs for them to get tender and edible, so if you timed it so that they went in the crock pot before work, they'd be ready to go when you got home that evening, eliminating the need to be home for any cooking. I pan fried diced bacon before putting it in the beans, to eliminate some fat. I didn't have dry mustard, and I added some BBQ sauce and smoke flavoring to the mix. It has a great flavor (just like Bush's Baked beans). Just don't be in a big hurry to eat it, the beans definitely take awhile! If you're dying for homeade baked beans, just substitute canned navy beans, and you can skip the soaking and 10 hours of simmering.

Dutch Apple Pie with Oatmeal Streusel

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2005
This is just a fantastic recipe. I used a combination of sweet and tart apples, and it was a good balance. After slicing the apples, I cut them into smaller pieces. I used the "Shortbread Crust" from this website, and it was a great combination. I didn't use the lemon either. My only problem is that after the designated cooking time, my apples were still pretty crisp. We still ate it that way and it was delicious, but I'd like to try maybe steaming the apples until slightly soft in the microwave before mixing them with the sugar and flour mixture. I will be making this recipe again.
