Coconut Gumdrop Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
Butter flavored shortening works best. My family has been making these for 30 years, but have never added nuts (kids prefer without!). We always at least double the amount of gumdrops it calls for. Cut the gumdrops into quarters using kitchen scissors dipped in water, then toss the cut pieces into granulated sugar to re-coat. Be sure to weed out the black gumdrops! These are very festive and a must-have for Christmas!

California Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
FANTASTIC! Served on "Easiest Focaccia Bread" recipe from this site (with added parmesan). In addition to the feta, sliced smoked gruyere was melted onto the bread. Added sliced Portabello mushrooms to the grilled veggies. Served the sandwiches buffet-style, so the kids could pick what veggies they liked. I added sliced tomatoes, capers, black olives and kalamata olives to the options. A little balsamic vinaigrette over the top of the veggies made it out of this world! I will be making these again and again!

Cheese Garlic Biscuits II

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
For light, fluffy biscuits, increase the baking powder to 2 teaspoons, and add 1/4 teaspoon baking soda. Fantastic!

Smokin' Jack BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: May 11, 2013
Made mostly as-is and this is CRAZY good! Used a bit more chipotle peppers for some heat. I've made this 2 ways; 1 using the whiskey, and 1 using 1/2 cup apple juice poured in after it's done cooking. I think we actually liked the juice one better, but they're both fantastic! I simmered the sauce for probably about an hour, and it thickened up well. Important note: 1/2 recipe makes PLENTY!

BBQ Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
My husband says this is the best pizza I've ever made! I only used 1 chicken breast (and it was plenty!). I added 3 strips of cooked bacon (chopped up), and I carmelized the onions in a frying pan before adding them to the pizza. Sweet Baby Ray's Honey Chipotle bbq sauce has just the right amount of heat. I used a shredded 4 cheese Italian mix. I buttered the whole crust, slathered in minced garlic, and baked for a few minutes before adding the toppings. YUM!

Black Bean, Corn, and Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
YUM! I did cut WAY back on the oil...probably to 1/4 cup or so. Added a little honey to sweeten up the dressing a bit. I used fat free feta. I left the jalapeno to be added on the side for individual tastes, and added cilantro as an option (that MADE the salad, as far as I'm concerned!) Definitely a keeper!

Heavenly Angel Food Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
OMG! Fantastic as-is! Angel food has always been my favorite, and this recipe is IT! Frosted with "Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting" from this site, that I halved the sugar on, and added 2 oz bakers white chocolate!

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
Fantastic! And I don't even like coleslaw! I used real mayo and used onion powder. It's even better with a clove or two of fresh minced garlic! Yum!

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
YUM!!! I halved the sugar and added 2 oz melted baker's white chocolate. I frosted the "Heavenly Angel Food Cake" recipe from this site with it, and served with fresh sliced strawberries for my little girl's birthday. This is my new favorite frosting! THANK YOU!

Tofu Parmigiana

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2012
Great recipe! I doubled the ingredients, and didn't make many changes (for once), except to the sauce. For the sauce I sauteed an onion until almost carmelized, then added tomato sauce, tomato paste, garlic, basil, oregano, a bit of brown sugar, and salt/pepper. I followed other suggestions for draining the tofu, then dredging in flour, then egg, then breadcrumb mixture. Baked for about 15 min on each side, then added tomato sauce and cheese and baked for 20 min in a 9x13" pan. It was fantastic! Kids gobbled it up, and even my hardcore carnivorous husband loved it!

Traditional Style Vegan Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2012
This was good! Instead of the carrots and celery, I added about a cup of mixed frozen chopped carrots, corn and peas. I didn't follow the mashed potato recipe; I just made traditional buttermilk potatoes and used regular grated sharp cheddar cheese on the top. I've never had "traditional" shepherd's pie so I have nothing to compare this to, but I will definitely make this again!

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
These are absolutely fantastic as-is! I have made them many times, and they are always the first thing to get eaten. Sometimes I add a little white wine to the bottom of the baking pan. YUM!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2013
These are SO much better than a pre-packaged mix! Sometimes I add a few tablespoons of barbecue sauce, or a few drops of liquid smoke. I make two versions; one with ground beef, and the other with Boca for the vegetarians in the house. Yum!

Harvest Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2013
Awesome salad! Here are my substitutions: pistachio nuts (instead of walnuts, and no need to toast!), gorgonzola cheese (instead of bleu), no tomatoes or ovacado (weird), shallots (instead of red onion), and DEFINITELY add either fresh sliced strawberries or fresh raspberries! Yummmmmmmmm! Be sure to add the dressing just before serving though, as it goes soggy fairly quickly. This is NOT a good leftover salad if the dressing has been poured onto it! Of course, we tend to not have too much of this left over!

Cilantro-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
Fantastic dressing! Used 1/4 cup honey as suggested by others. Here's the salad I made with it: Romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, corn, black beans, shelled edamame, sliced red and yellow baby bell peppers, sliced olives, shredded cheddar cheese, and crushed baked tortilla chips. I also added just a bit of some Southwest Chipotle dressing to give it a little kick. YUM!

Apricot Brown Sugar Ham

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
WOW! This smelled fantastic! As a vegetarian, I didn't eat it, but sure was tempted to convert to meat-eater! ;-) My husband and kids LOVED it! After it was cooked, I drained the juices from the pan, combined with cornstarch in a pan and cooked on the stove for 15 min or so to thicken into a dipping sauce. Everybody loved it! And it was SO simple.
