Cheese Filled Triangles

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2006
Delicous and easy, but time consuming. Made the following changes - reduced salt to 1/2 teaspoon, added 2 tablespoons of grated parmesan and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, did not pre-cook cheeses and egg - instead added to cooled spinach and onion mixture. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For the reviewer looking for suggestions on shaping triangles: I used 3 sheets of phyllo per turnover, brushing with butter between each layer. Cut layered sheets lengthwise with a pizza cutter into long strips. Put spinach filling at lower end of strip and fold bottom corner up over filling to side edge (at a 45 degree angle), forming a triangle - then fold triangle over to opposite edge (like folding a flag) and continue this back and forth motion. At the end seal edges with extra melted butter. Keep extra phyllo sheets covered with plastic wrap to prevent them from drying out while you work. Hope this helps!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
What a wonderful surprise! Such great flavor and texture from so few ingredients and little effort. I had 1.5 lbs. of beef and only one can of golden mushroom soup so I improvised by adding 1 1/3 cups beef broth instead of the water. Started with frozen beef cubes.

Apricot Scones

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2006
Not too sweet, biscuit-like texture. A family favorite. Best eaten straight from the oven.

Get a Husband Brunswick Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2006
Compared recipes and took best of each - used crock pot, served with cornbread. Changes: 2lbs. boneless chicken thighs, 1lb. leftover pork roast, 1/2 cup diced smoked ham, plus 2 slices crumbled turkey bacon in place of all meats. Added 1/2 cup sliced okra, 2 cups lima beans, 1 clove minced garlic, 1 can chicken broth, dash of worcestershire. Replaced ketchup with tomato puree and creamed corn with 2 cups frozen. Increased BBQ sauce to 1 cup. Wonderful aroma!

Apricot Cream Cheese Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
Butter + cream cheese + apricot ALWAYS = delicious! The dough was a little too sticky and the first batch didn't hold their shape, but after adding a little more flour they worked out perfect.

Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2013
This recipe was a big hit at our party. A Norwegian friend thought it was a Scandinavian recipe and Indian friends thought it reminded them of an Indian recipe. I agree that adding the seasoning to taste is a good idea. Used dried dill in the cream cheese and fresh dill sprigs as garnish. Served on a chilled platter.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2005
Wonderful! Definitely cook the chicken in the soup as suggested by previous reviewers. This soup will only be hot and spicy if you use hot ingredients - I used mild enchilada sauce, etc. and my kids asked me to make it spicier next time - go figure! I also omitted the salt and used low salt products. Used a 2nd can of chicken broth in place of the water. Store bought tortilla chips are the way to go - try melting some sharp cheddar on the chips before adding to the soup along with a sprinkle of fresh cilantro and a dollup of sour cream - yum!

Grilled Orange-and-Bourbon Salmon

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2006
We love this recipe! My husband doesn't eat salmon, unless I make it this way. Tastes alot like the bourbon sauce served in chain restaurants. Did reduce bourbon to about 2 tablespoons; other times I've used Southern Comfort and that works too. I do recommend serving the marinade as a sauce - just boil it for at least 2 minutes. If you prefer, strain before serving. My kids pour the sauce over everything on their plate! Served with rice pilaf and broccoli.

Hershey's ® 'Perfectly Chocolate' Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2005
If you've never made a scratch cake - start with this recipe. For a little extra effort you'll get a classic chocolate cake - dense and satisfying. Mixing the cocoa into the butter while it's still hot gets rid of the chalky texture. Keep frosting at room temp until ready to spread (doesn't spread well if cold). The cake is so forgiving that I have spread the frosting on while cake is still lukewarm. For birthdays I put a layer of cherry pie filling in the middle instead of frosting and use toothpicks to keep the layers from sliding. It is my family's most requested birthday cake. A real keeper.

Mandarin Mousse Mold

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2006
Tastes like creamsicle jello. The creamy layer started to melt under the weight of the jello layer so next time I'll adjust the proportions and make the creamy layer thicker. Since the orange sections float in the jello I pushed some them into the jello after it had partially set. This distributed the fruit more evenly throughout the jello layer.

Whole Wheat Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2005
Wow - finally a healthier version of banana bread that my family loves! It actually tastes better after it cools. I stored it wrapped in plastic wrap in the frig and we ate it cold - which intensified the flavor and made the texture more dense. Will increased walnuts to 3/4 cup next time. Thanks for the great suggestion of freezing overripe bananas -- now I'll always have them on hand.

Crunchy Lettuce

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2006
My kids loved this salad. I made half of the recipe for the 4 of us and left out the bacon. Lettuce started to wilt as soon as I tossed with dressing but still tasted great. Added chow mein noodles at the end. Served with "Asian Flank Steak," also from this site. Next time I might add a little sesame oil and/or soy sauce, especially if I'm making it with the Asian steak.

Spice Sachets for Mulled Cider and Wine

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2005
Excellent flavor - tastes the way mulled cider should. We like our cider spicy so I used one sachet for a 1/2 gallon of cider and simmered longer - about an hour. We made up a bunch of sachets and gave them as gifts - definitely include instructions so friends friends don't make the same mistake as a previous reviewer by removing the spices from the sachet.

Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2006
The Timeless Classic. Have tried other recipes but always come back to this one. My 12-year old daughter took over the pie baking duties last Thanksgiving and wowed everyone with her first pie. Her great grandmother asked what bakery made the pie!

Basic Chili Recipe

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
I like to simmer this until about half of the water from the tomatoes evaporates. Nice consistency. Great over rice or topped with cheddar cheese, sour cream or sliced green onions.

Cinnamon-Roasted Almonds

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
Addictive! I tweaked this recipe only a little. To increase flavor I reduced nuts to 3 cups but kept coating ingredients the same. Be sure to wisk the egg white until it is VERY foamy. Baking an extra 30 minutes increased the crunchiness! It's important to use the correct size baking sheet for the amount of almonds - nuts should be single layer and just fill the pan - an old dark pan works best and I don't bother to spray it - I scrape up the extra sugar at end and throw it in with the nuts. After the first hour stir every 15 minutes and continue baking until the coating is dry.

Bavarian Style Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
Perfect as an appetizer for holiday parties. Most people are surprised by the delicious combination of cranberry sauce and sauerkraut. Definitely use WHOLE BERRY cranberry sauce. I usually reduce sugar to 1/2 cup, and use only 14 oz. of drained sauerkraut. Works equally well with beef, turkey or pork meatballs. Can be made ahead and frozen.
