Spicy Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2001
Everyone loved it! My father-in-law made Thanksgiving dinner all by himself, and when I asked if I could bring something, he said 'pasta salad', so I used this recipe. Three people asked for the recipe, and the leftovers got eaten by my kids the next day...they were actually ANGRY when there was none left! Thanks!

Easy Corn and Crab Chowder

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2005
This recipe was great. I followed everything EXACTLY except that I doubled everything except the flour and still had to thin it a little with more milk. I love that it's a creamy soup I can make with my regular 1% milk instead of half and half or heavy cream. My whole family loved it. I served it with Tabasco sauce on the side because I really like a little kick and it was great both with and without it.

Delicious Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2006
These turned out great. I used just over half a teaspoon of salt and it was plenty. My husband likes not so sweet cookies, but I eat sweets rarely enough that I think the sweeter the better. My compromise was that half of these got a quick roll in granulated sugar (make sure you shake off the excess) before I flattened them out with a fork. Definitely a great peanut butter cookie recipe though, no matter where it came from!

Super Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2006
Yum! We don't seem to have Bob Evans sausage here, but regardless of the brand, this is good stuff! Try it on chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes... just don't eat it too often!

Italian Style Sausage

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2006
Wow. I was just looking for a way to use up the leftover ground pork from last night and I discovered the ONLY way I'll do italian sausage from now on. It's just as good as the stuff you get from the store and the ground pork I used was 96% lean. I didn't have anise, so I used fennel as a substitute like some other did and I discovered that I love the stuff. I even added extra. I left out the red peppers because of my picky seven year old, but did everything else according to the recipe. I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you!

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2006
This is one of my favorite recipes. I actually like my kahlua pork better than some of the luaus I've been to. Just make sure you don't use TOO lean a piece of meat. When I was on a weight loss kick I tried this with pork sirloin and it didn't turn out nearly as great. I've used just about every other pork roast with amazing results. If you have tons of leftovers like I always do, try rolling the extra pork into taquitos (that one got rave reviews)and serve with salsa, sour cream and guacamole, or add some barbecue sauce and a couple ounces of beef or chicken broth, reheat, and serve on buns or rolls for pulled pork sandwiches. It's leftovers without anyone knowing they're leftovers!

Pumpkin Muffins II

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2006
These are the muffins I was looking for! Perfect muffiny texture... nice and dense and perfectly seasoned. I added chopped pecans to the batter for protein and topped each with a half pecan. They were beautiful! The perfect grab and go breakfast for our family!

Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
This was awesome! We did a ham for New Year's and I actually did this in my slow cooker. I put the ham in, cooked for about 5 hours on high, then added the glaze and cooked for 1 1/2 hours on low. The only problem I had was trying to figure out how to get it out of my crock pot! The sauce smells and looks a little weird when you mix it up, and I was leery because I'm used to the regular honey/brown sugar glaze, but once it's had time to cook on the ham it's perfect. I made this with the "potato casserole" (recipe submitted by JeremyBeeler - also a five star recipe... just don't check the nutrition information!)which I've made from time to time over the years and green beans with almonds.

Taco Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
Yum-o! I found this recipe when I was trying to find a way to cook all the stuff I had left over from making taquitos for a football party. Because I was using things I had on hand, I used 1 lb ground beef just seasoned with garlic salt and 1 lb chorizo sausage (cooked down I'd say that's about 6 ounces... I put paper towels in a bowl and use them to strain the oil through!), I added a can of chili beans for some fiber, used 2 7oz cans of Herdez salsa verde, no green onions and other than that I guess I stuck to the recipe. 30 minutes in the oven and I had a beautiful casserole with a crispy cheesy top... and I didn't have to go to the store!!!

Minestrone Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2007
YUM!!! This is sooo good. Due to some of the previous reviews, I used italian seasoned stewed tomatoes (oregano and basil). I didn't have to tweak anything. I made a double recipe and I have no doubt that by tomorrow night it'll all be gone. I LOVE all the veggies in it... it feels healthy making it. Thank you for the great minestrone recipe!

Raspberry Kielbasa over Cheese Grits

Reviewed: May 9, 2007
I was pretty skeptical when I read this recipe, but the solid marks from the reviewers convinced me to give it a try. I didn't have raspberry preserves, so I used cherry (and I was missing the mushrooms)but it turned out great. I don't like grits, but my husband does, so I made this for his birthday breakfast. Everyone looked at their dishes with a strange expression as I put it on the table, but once they dug in, they all liked it... including me!

Ham and Fresh Basil Pinwheels

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2007
I just made these pinrolls (less the lettuce) and they are great! I used Trader Joe's lavash bread (hye rollers at the supermarket are basically the same thing) and they are 100% yummy!

Queso Fundido

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2007
I don't know that I would consider this queso fundido, which I've always thought of as more of a fondue type dip, but it's very good. I made it for our first Sunday football watching party and it was a big hit. I seasoned the ground beef with a little garlic salt while it cooked, and used chicken chorizo from Trader Joe's (less fat and all of the flavor). This turned out like a layered dip. I think I'll add more cheese next time and mix everything up. Really though, a great alternative to bringing a seven layer bean dip.

Lemon Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
This turned out great! I made mine with whole wheat flour and Smart Balance instead of the shortening and it still turned out ALMOST perfect. It was a little dry around the corners, but really good still. I might bake it for 50-55 minutes next time instead of the full hour. I added the juice of half a lemon to the bread batter to make it more lemony, and used powdered sugar for the icing. Really good and I don't have to feel guilty about eating it with the modifications that I've made!

Cabbage Kielbasa Supper

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
I really enjoyed this, especially I think for the easiness factor! I followed the instructions as written, but left out the potatoes as suggested by other reviewers. I used turkey kielbasa and added about 1/2 cup of white wine along with the chicken stock. I baked the potatoes instead, then opened them up, buttered them with a bit of Smart Balance and served with the cabbage/kielbasa mixture. My only complaint is that there is so much cabbage, which is fine for me, but I think hubby and the kids would have liked to have more sausage, so I'll add more next time. Really though, no complaints... my son ate his with yellow mustard the way he does his corned beef, but I thought the wine helped out the flavor and didn't need anything else.

Pumpkin Ice Cream

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
Great recipe! I made this for Thanksgiving along with the crackle top molasses cookies from this site, which I absolutely love. I was about to give it a four star rating because of the nilla wafers... doesn't sound appetizing... but other than that, the recipe is simple and delicious. I used less sugar than called for and served the cookies a la mode. Yum! Best Thanksgiving dessert ever!

Crackle Top Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2008
I can't believe that I haven't reviewed this cookie yet. I've been making them for about a year and they are soooo good! I've never had to change a thing. We made them for Thanksgiving dessert along with some homemade pumpkin pecan ice cream and the combination was incredible! Hubby's still trying to devise a plan on how to turn them into ice cream sandwiches!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
I love this recipe and came very close to following it to a T! I used four cans of 'mexican style chili beans' since I couldn't find the spicy/non spicy, omitted the bacon bits, and used two cans of tomatoes with green chilis instead of fresh chilis... they were expensive and ugly on the day I went shopping. I also added two squares of unsweetened chocolate, which I had seen done at a chili cookoff. Definitely the best chili I've ever had!

Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
I love this recipe. It's been a while since I've made it, and I had to frantically search the site to make sure that it's still here, but I found it! The dumplings turn out great - light and fluffy - and don't use a prepackaged mix, which scores bonus points with me!
