Sweet Potato and Apple Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
I used three sweet potatoes and excluded the lemon as suggested by others. I almost wish I'd included the lemon just to know whether that might add a little extra to the soup as otherwise the soup tends to be a little on the bland side. However ours could have been bland from the extra sweet potato, and salt and pepper helped bring out the flavors a lot. I used feta as the garnish and would have preferred something different, such as perhaps grated parmesan or a dollop of sour cream.

Homemade Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
I quadrupled the recipe, using four eggs and a little over three cups of flour, added gradually. I overworked my dough (they were a little chewy, and it wasn't because they were al dente or overcooked) but otherwise the noodles turned out great.

Three hours on high and we had a completely cooked, fall off the bone, moist chicken! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

Sausage Crescent Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
I found these to be a little "one note." I did not add poppy seeds, however. Not sure if that would make a difference.

Low-Fat Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
I used whole wheat flour, fresh pumpkin and 2 eggs. I made two batches, one as bread and the other as muffins. For the bread, I made the mistake of putting all of the batter in a meatloaf/bread pan so it overflowed while cooking! It took about twice as long to cook, too! Oh well, it otherwise turned out good. For the muffins, I got 2 1/2 dozen full-size muffins out of one batch. They took about 17 min. to cook per dozen. In terms of the overall taste/texture, mine turned out very dense, likely moreso than the original recipe because I used whole wheat flour. Also, the pumpkin flavor (and all the related spices of pumpkin pie) were very subtle. I would have preferred a stronger pumpkin taste. Otherwise, I'm happy with this recipe!

Cool Whipped Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
Points for being an easy recipe, but this tasted odd to me. Be aware that if you substitute evaporated milk for regular milk, as someone suggested, the frosting will have a definitely peach undertone in terms of color.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
I would agree that these are about the best chocolate chip cookies I've run across. Take the cookies out at 10-12 minutes. They won't be brown at that point, but I kept one pan in until they had that golden look I'm used to and those turned out a little crunchy. This recipe makes A LOT if you're using the teaspoon/knife method to put them on the pan. One batch made over five dozen cookies. Thank you so much for sharing, Dora!

Fresh Peach Dessert

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
This is a great end-of-summer recipe -- along with peaches being in season this time of year, we had marshmallows and graham crackers left over from a Labor Day camping trip! Thus, instead of mini marshmallows I used 5 c. of the regular size. Also, I had Redi-whip left over from a party so I used 7 c. of that instead of the cream and sugar. I added about 6 iced oatmeal cookies with the graham cracker mixture for added flavor. I used 6 white peaches, diced, and made these in muffin tins. I made a dozen individual servings in muffin tins, then had enough left over to fill a pie dish as well -- and still had about three cups of peaches left for snacking! I filled each muffin tin with about 1 T. graham cracker mixture, 1 T. whipped mixture, 1 1/2 T. peaches, 1 T. whipped mixture and a sprinkle of graham cracker mixture on top. The dessert holds up fairly well in the muffin tins and doesn't require spoons if you eat carefully.

Grilled Zucchini Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2011
I have made these about five times this summer! I skip the butter and pizza sauce. Instead, I grill one side, then flip them over and top the cooked side with bacon bits, diced well drained tomatoes and cheese and cook until the cheese is melted, the underside is cooked and the zucchini is soft (but not mushy). These reheat great. They're VERY filling!

Slow Cooker Latin Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
This was okay. I'll probably make it again just for some variety. I used chicken tenders. I really wish I HADN'T added corn. The corn overpowers this dish.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
This is the first recipe I saved and have made it several times a year exactly as directed. I just realized I'd never rated it! It's a keeper!

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
EXCELLENT!! Beware - these are VERY filling! I accidentally used pinto beans and used cheddar jalepeno wraps. I also omitted the water per other reviews. I used fresh sweet potatoes that I peeled, cut and microwaved, then mashed. I'm not sure why so many reviewers seemed to have troubles with mashing. Thanks, Karena, for sharing this recipe! I will be making it again!

Creamed Spinach II

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
I love how easy this recipe is. If you like really creamy creamed spinach, I'd suggest adding cream cheese or something as this recipe isn't really creamy. I added a can of artichoke hearts and two cloves of garlic, cut up. This is good reheated, too.

Thanksgiving Asparagus Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
I substituted bacon bits for slivered almonds and used fresh asparagus. I cooked the dish for an extra 15 minutes, covering with foil for 12 minutes, to make sure the asparagus was cooked. Ten minutes probably would have been sufficient as the asparagus turned out a little more cooked than I like. The cheese "sauce" turned out like mashed potatoes. It was okay but I probably won't make this again due to the consistency of the cheese and the lack of "depth" in this recipe.

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
These turned out very good. They were crunchier than I was hoping. I used milled oats, which I think are also known as old-fashioned oats.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
I just wanted a peanut butter cookie recipe and these turned out good. I doubled the recipe and got 2 1/2 doz cookies, so I'm not sure why the original recipe says you'll only get 6 in a batch. Also, trust that 8 min. is enough time for the cookies. I didn't think they were done at that point and cooked them twice as long until they started to brown and firm up, but those turned out pretty crunchy. The ones that came out at 8 min. turned out much better - firm but not crunchy.

Fluffy Whole Wheat Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
I made these with 2 c. whole wheat flour only and substituted the butter for 1/4 c. applesauce. They turned out a little dry and pretty dense. Although they didn't have too much more flavor than wheat bread, hubby and son loved them with a pad of butter in the middle. I am thrilled to be able to eat a biscuit guilt-free! I'm going to try this recipe as a bread loaf.

Summer Celery Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
Although I like bold flavors, this tasted weird to me. I did substitute oregano and Italian seasoning for the thyme and basil, but I don't think it was those spices that made it taste strange. I think its the wine. Maybe not so much? Also, I wouldn't puree the soup. It turned out brown. Maybe reduce the broth by half so it creates more of a "stew" consistency and leave the veggies as they are.
