Jalapeno Snacks

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
These were fabulous--made them for a party and they were a big hit. Comments: 1) I used turkey bacon and it works better than pig bacon, IMO, because it has more "stretch" for the wrapping part and isn't as greasy. 2) I used shredded mexican cheese because I had that on hand and the flavor was wonderful. 3) I recommend getting big, firm jalapeno peppers--the bigger they are, the easier they are to de-seed. I used a melon baller to clean mine out and it worked great. Super recipe!

Easy Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
A note about "shredding" apples...I had never done that before and didn't know what to expect, so I just used my cheese shredder (which I already had out for the carrots). Well, my granny smith cooking apple didn't exactly turn into nice stringy pieces, it ended up looking more like applesauce. Actually, it went brown immediately too, so to be honest it looked like throw-up. Yum! :) So I had another apple on hand which I peeled and cubed. (I liked cubed apples in my baking anyway.) They came out really good. Also, I substituted applesauce (including the goop I had made, lol) for oil since it's a shame to have all these healthy ingredients and then blow it with the oil. Other than that though, the recipe does not need any tinkering. AND it's AMAZING served with a little bit of low-fat cream cheese. I'm not kidding guys, you'll really want the cream cheese.

Cranberry Fruit Relish

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
Cranberry relish is better than cranberry sauce because sauce can slide off your turkey when you're eating it, but sticky relish bits cling all over the meat when you have it on your fork. I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a big hit. I made it the day before, which was convenient, and after it had chilled the flavors mingled well and it took on more of the orange/citrusy flavor. The only thing I changed was using 1/2 cup of sugar because I wanted to retain the tartness of the cranberries and we don't like things too sweet around here. Oh, and I learned that 3.5 cups cranberries equals one 12oz bag. Enjoy, this one's a keeper!

Corny Mexican Salad

Reviewed: May 23, 2007
I changed the recipe a lot: I skipped the hot pepper sauce and substituted more tomatoes and avocado for the corn. I made it ahead of time to give to someone and forgot that avocados go brown after a few hours, just FYI if you want to make it ahead of time and chill it, you should probably add the avocados at the end. I'm still looking for a good summer bean salad and will probably keep looking, but this one wasn't bad.

Bombay Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2007
This is one of the best Indian recipes out there! You get great Indian flavor but it's easy, and leaves your house smelling wonderful. I agree with the rest of the reviewers who said it only needed 45 minutes to cook. For the dried fruit I used a mix that I got in the bulk food section of my grocery store--it had raisins, cranberries, dried pineapple and dried mango. Those fruit flavors were delicious in this dish!

Seven Layer Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
I don't have a mortar and pestle, so I put the graham cracker crumbs in the bottom of a stainless steel bowl and used the bottom of the condensed milk can to crush the graham crackers. Using a little circular motion got finely chopped crumbs. Worked great!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
I followed the other reviewers' advice: instead of doubling the crumb topping I cut the apples in half to only 5 cups. I then put 1/2 the topping on top and 1/2 on bottom. The apple crisp was accidentally was served cold (outside at a church picnic) and the topping on bottom was extremely difficult to scrape off. Make sure to either spray the pan first or serve it warm. Otherwise, the flavor was very good.
