Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
Best I've ever tried. I omitted the dill weed, and used freshly minced garlic and finely diced scallions instead of dried onion. Excellent!

Banana Oatmeal Cookie

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
The nutmeg was overpowering. Next time I will make using only cinnamon. I also found the 400 degrees for 15 minutes way too long. I kept a close eye on them and after 10 minutes they were looking way too brown. I usually bake cookies at 375 for 10 minutes. I will make these again but tweak slightly. I found them slightly bland. Will add chocolate chips next time. The texture of the cookies was great--soft and fat.

Wilderness Place Lodge Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
Taste great, but I prefer the texture of the Urban Legend cookie recipe. The 2 recipes are very similiar...only a few adjustments. I also prefer using old-fashioned oats.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IV

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
I give these 5 for the excellent flavor--they remind me of some of the expensive Oatmeal Raisin versions available in some bakeries. I followed the recipe to a t except I left out the nuts, and I mixed on low setting instead of stirring by hand. I think soaking the raisins prior makes the cookies more moist.

Broccoli-Cheese Corn Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
this was pretty good--I added a 1 cup corn bc I was trying to clean out my frig. I only used 2 eggs bc that's all I had. I also didn't add any butter bc I'm trying to watch my fat intake, so I used 1/2 cup milk instead. Turned out really good. Next time I may add some ground turkey sausage.

Chocolate Snaps Sugar Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
these are REALLY good. The only thing I did different is I did not bother chilling or roll in sugar. I immedately dropped by large spoon (I always make big cookies) on a cookie sheet and baked. Flavor and texture was PERFECT

Broccoli Cornbread

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
I made quite a few changes, based on some of the feedback/reviews. I omitted the cottage cheese and added 1.5 cups of milk in place of it. I added 1 lb lean turkey sausage to make it a main course dish. I also sauted onion and jalepano and added coarse black pepper. The end result was DELISH. Will make again.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
EXCELLENT!! I used 4 lbs of pork shoulder picnic roast (it was on sale) and it worked out wonderfully because it was fairly lean, only a bit of fat to trim off. I used Baby Ray's Original BBQ sauce and followed the directions exactly, except I cooked for 4 hours on high, then 2 hours on low. This will be added to my weekly meals, the kids gobbled up

Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
Best I've found. I vary the actual chicken soup some (seasonings) but the dumplings are perfect.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
I used 15 oz tomato sauce instead of paste (did not add the water), omitted the marjoram, honey and anchovy paste (didn't have and didn't want to buy any) and this recipe was still the best I've tried!

Red Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
I only gave 4 stars because I feel like the sugar measurement is off. These are very good, but only require 1 tsp sugar. I also never measure my half and half exactly, just splash in enough until the mixture is creamy.

Creamy Corn Couscous

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
I made a few modifications: used whole kernal corn, drained, because I didn't have any cream style on hand. Also used the Roasted Garlic and Olive oil couscous so I didn't add any additional salt. The family ate it up, and asked for more, so next time I'll double the recipe.

Spaghetti Pizza Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
I made a few healthy changes: used lean ground turkey instead of beef, and smoked turkey sausage instead of pepperoni. Only used 3/4 cup cheese on top instead of 2 cups. Also, added in Italian Seasoning to my meat mixture, and diced bell pepper. Used canned olives and mushrooms. I added half my jar of sauce to the meat mixture, and layered the other half directly on top of the spaghetti. Turned out WONDROUS.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
Perfection, that's all I'm saying. I made one change, I did not have any molasses so I used dark Karo syrup and it still turned out perfect. These cookies literally melted in our mouths and next time I'll double the recipe!

Sauerkraut Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
I had to make too many changes to rate this higher than a 3, but this is a good base recipe to modify according to what you like. The first time I made exactly like recipe, and it was way too watery, not enough meat, and I wasn't crazy about the dill taste. The 2nd time, I eliminated the water altogether, doubled the meat (used hot turkey sausage links to decrease the fat content) used parsley instead of dill, and fresh carrots and potatoes. After all that, it was an excellent soup. I used a 32 oz jar of kraut also, and kept some of the juice in there. Delish.

Southwestern-Flavored Ground Beef or Turkey for Tacos & Salad

Reviewed: May 17, 2008
I will never use packaged taco seasoning again after trying this. I did use a can of Rotel diced tomato/green chili instead of the plain tomatoes, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly, including the 3 lbs of meat. We LOVED it.

Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Crabmeat

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
Pleasantly surprised by this recipe! I was a bit worried while it was cooking because I used extra large breasts, and had to cook them awhile in the oven (45 min at 375) to make sure they were cooked all the way through, but they turned out excellent. I had to make a few substitutions because I lacked some ingredients--I used crushed Ritz crackers instead of bread crumbs, and used rosemary instead of dill. I also doubled the entire recipe because 4 chicken breasts don't last very long in our family!! Very pleased, will make this again soon.

Always A Winner Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 4, 2008
Loved it! I used frozen, jumbo shrimp instead of the canned because I think it has more flavor and several reviews complained you could not taste the shrimp. I just steamed the shrimp and chopped coursely so there were pretty large chunks in it. I definitely could taste the shrimp, but I only used half the paprika and ommitted the celery salt because I didn't have any. I also made my potato dices very, very tiny. I also used regular white onion instead of green scallion, I will try it with the green next time, but it was still very delicious.

Cabbage Jambalaya

Reviewed: May 4, 2008
I was pleasantly surprised by the recipe; I took some of the suggestions of others and used chicken broth instead of water, omitted the celery, used Rotel instead of the stewed tomato, and used lean ground beef and turkey italian sausage. I also cooked my rice seperately and used a long-grain wild rice, pilaf style mix with added diced veggies because I was worried about the "blandness" that others had mentioned. In hindsight, plain rice would have been fine. Next time I'll add two cans of Rotel instead of one, and use plain white rice. Overall, very pleased and will be making again soon. I served with blackeyed peas, Mexican cornbread and potato salad.
