Israeli Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
Yummy combination of flavors. I loved the parsley, mint and lemon - so simple. Took a lot more prep time than I imagined it would - lots of peeling and seeding and chopping. WAY too much olive oil. I would at least halve it and drizzle slowly till you get the consistency you want. Too much salt for my liking too so I will play with that. Nice and refreshing and will definately make again though!! Served in a pita pocket with some cream cheese.

Eclairs II

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
These were fantastic. I followed the advice to prick a hole in the end of the warm eclair to let the steam out...not sure if it made a difference but why not? The filling was too runny for me, so I would like to try again with less milk. I actually don't really like the vanilla filling, but my husband loves it so I made it that way. I piped it in which was nice and easy. Next time I would like to make some and pipe plain whipped cream into it which is the way I grew up eating them. Fantastic easy recipe. Also, I put the 'dough' in a zip lock bag, cut a corner off about the width of the eclairs and then piped them out onto the cookie sheet - SO EASY. Thanks for the recipes!!

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2011
I'm rating this 5 starts because I want people to try it, but I did not in fact stick to the recipe. I added a can of Rotel, used chicken broth, added corn, and used just a sprinkle of cayenne. This is a fantastic basic recipe though, and I think would be hard to ruin as you experiment.

Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
Yum. I followed another reviewers advice, and dredged the chicken in flour before using the egg and coating. I baked it in the oven, and added a cup of butter toward the end.

Beer Margaritas

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
I have wussy friends because this was more tequilla than they liked. I'm not sure how you can have 'too much' tequilla but, whatever. They were good!

Simple Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
Not too excited by this. I made it as stated and it was kind of bland. I used leftover cooked turkey breast which may have made a difference and I added some corn and some pinto beans. The sauce was too thin for my liking. I might try it again with some of the adjustments that other reviewers suggested.

Quinoa with Peas

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2013
I make this almost every week and I love it. This is what I do...I rinse the quinoa (some kinds you don't need to but the kind I buy you do), I add a teaspoon of coriander and cumin, and I add two cups of peas but not till the last 5 minutes of cook time so that they still have a little crunch. This is an awesome toddler food - my 1 year old loves this. Also - don't substitute the cheese. I've used parmesan just because I had it on hand and the pecorino is a much better flavor. I think I add more than a half a cup (ok, I know do but I tell myself it's there abouts). Wonderful recipe and it keeps in the fridge really well.

Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
These are so good! I doubled the recipe and would say I got about 30 - so definitely make more dough. Easy to roll - not sure why so many had a hard time with it. I piped on frosting that I found in the reviews. Yummy. Thanks for the recipe.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
Not one of my favorites, but my family all loved them and my husband is in love. I added some worcestershire sauce - probably about a tablespoon. I've made this twice and the second time doubled the recipe and used 1c. tomato sauce and 1/2c. honey barbeque sauce. I froze the leftovers in muffin cups as suggested by others - one muffin cup is enough for a sandwich. So clever. Thanks!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Will never try another recipe! So good. I didn't do that lattice but it was fine with just a crust on top.

Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2013
I have never given a bad review since I usually figure it's just a difference in taste buds rather than a bad recipe...having said that, this was gross. The only change I made was to add garlic to my saute. I like all the ingredients in the recipe, and I like the idea of it but it really didn't work. It just tasted like cream of chicken soup with some vege, which makes sense since that is what it is. Oh well, you win some you lose some. Thank you for the idea anyway. Back to the drawing board.

This is a favorite in our house. I always dredge the chicken in some flour, onion and garlic powder before I cook it.

Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
So I made this because I needed to use some mexican flavored Velveeta and didn't know what to do with it. So I left out the monterey jack, added the velveeta and sprinkled a little cheddar on the top during baking. It was ok, and the calories involved make me a little green but my kids LOVED it - really loved it. So for them I give it 5 stars!!!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
I made these without a bread machine and they were still super easy. SO DELISH!! My only advice would be to watch them - I baked for 15 mins but the outside buns were a little crunchy - I like them soft and could have taken them out a few mins sooner. Still good though!!
