Sassy Chicken Enchilada Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2005
This recipe was great! I took it to a BBQ at a friend's house and to a work potluck and received rave reviews both times. The first time I made it I didn't put the cilantro in because I don't really like cilantro, but the second time I put it in and I thought it added a little something. The second time I forgot to add the green onions and it still turned out great. My friend's 7-year old nephew loved this dip so much that he made me promise to bring it to our next party! I'm planning on making it again for a New Year's party in a couple of days. Thanks for the great recipe!

Turkey Pot Pie II

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2006
My family loved this recipe. Keep in mind my 13 year old normally hates any kind of pie, including fruit pies. He ate two pieces of this. I made the following modifications: instead of frozen mixed veggies I used freshly cut carrots, celery and diced potatoes. I didn't saute the onion first--just threw it in. I put the turkey & veggies in, mixed the soup & milk together and poured that over the turkey & veggies. I used store bought refrigerated pie crusts to make it super easy. I also used an egg wash on the crust to make it nice and golden brown. I plan to use this recipe on a regular basis. Delicious homemade pot pie! Thanks so much for the recipe!

Pesto Pasta with Chicken

Reviewed: May 1, 2005
This recipe was delicious! Even my picky 11-year old thought it was great--he ate 3 helpings! I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe. This will become one of our frequently used recipes. I plan to make this when we entertain.

Basil Butter

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2006
This butter is absolutely delicious! We made it for our 4th of July picnic to use on our corn on the cob, and everyone loved it! I think I may become addicted to this! I put it on my baked potato last night and practically inhaled it! I'm sure it would be delicious on bread too.

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2006
I made this recipe for a party. I thought it was delicious. I loved the contrasting flavors. The only substitution I made was feta for the blue cheese because I knew no one at the party liked blue cheese. One person said she didn't like it because it was just too weird a combination of flavors, but everyone else complimented the salad. People loved the candied pecans. I think I may make some more of those and keep them around the house for snacking! Note: This salad does not make good leftovers. I tried it the next day and of course the avocado had turned brown and the dressing had turned a little sour. I recommend you eat it all when it's fresh!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
By far the best zucchini bread I have even eaten. Mine took a full hour to bake. I made a few changes to make it healthier: substituted 1 of the cups of white flour with whole wheat flour and substituted 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce for 1/2 cup of oil. For the sugar I used 1 cup white, 1/2 cup brown and 1/2 cup Splenda. I added 1/2 tsp of nutmeg and omitted the nuts because my family doesn't care for them. I'm eating it warm right now; it's AMAZING!!

Banana Nut Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
Delicious! We made these because we were looking for more muffin than cupcake. They were very moist and tasty. They didn't turn out very attractive--they didn't have nice round tops like cupcakes normally do--but since they were just for us, we didn't care. We topped them with cream cheese frosting. The only thing I would change is I would substitute canola oil for the shortening. I don't care for shortening but used it this time since it was my first time making this recipe. I will use canola oil instead next time. Fantastic recipe--will definitely make again.

Spinach and Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2005
I made this recipe for a BBQ and got several compliments on this salad. I don't like olives, so I omitted the olives and substituted mushrooms instead. I sauteed the mushrooms in some olive oil and garlic and then threw them in the salad. I think they really gave the salad a good flavor! I also substituted fresh spinach for the frozen. I forgot to add the parmesean cheese, but it didn't taste like it was missing anything without it. I'm sure I will make this recipe again!

Simple Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
We really enjoyed this recipe. My family does not like ground turkey, but since we are trying to eat healthier I thought I'd try this recipe since the reviews said it doesn't even taste like turkey. It's true! I did make some modifications: used diced instead of crushed tomatoes, added 2 generous tbsp of tomato paste and cut the cayenne pepper in half. I didn't smash the kidney beans either. I don't like spicy foods, so even though I halved the cayenne it was still a bit too spicy for me. Next time I will try halving the chili powder and see if that helps. Overall, it is a great recipe and I will definitely make it again!

Banana Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
Banana cream pie was my Grandma's specialty, but I didn't have her recipe, so I thought I'd look for one here. I'm so glad I found this recipe--it was delicious! I made the changes suggested by many--reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup, used cornstarch instead of flour and didn't bake it, just chilled it for about 3 1/2 hours. I had no problems with the custard filling being runny--but I made sure to use whole milk and I cooked the custard until it became nice and thick. I think if you do both of these things, yours should turn out great like mine did. I tossed my cut-up bananas in some lemon juice to prevent browning, but it didn't do any good--they still turned brown. That is my only complaint about this recipe, but I don't see how that can really be prevented. I also folded the bananas into the custard and then put everything into the pie crust--I didn't layer bananas on the bottom first. I topped with Cool Whip since my family doesn't like meringue and this pie was for my son's birthday. If I was making it just for me, I would have topped with fresh whipped cream! All in all, a delicious pie and it was easy to make as long as you follow the instructions carefully.

Dill Dip II

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
This recipe was just okay. I followed the recipe exactly and wasn't very thrilled with it. I prefer a ranch dip instead. I won't make it again.
