Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2015
Unbelievably easy. I had a recipe for Tropical Grilled Pork Chops. (See Allrecipe....so delicious!) but did not have any canned applesauce so made some with Sarah's Recipe. Perfect and obviously a lot healthier. I did drain off most of the water used to cook the apples before mashing them!

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
I served these for Christmas dinner with a wonderful beef tenderloin They were a big hit. I liked them b/c they were so easy to make ahead of time. I sprinkled jarred bacon bits on top after discovering I didn't have sliced bacon. That make it really easy.

Mom's Best Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
Just made this today. I used 1 lb of ground turkey, 3/4 c of fresh bread crumbs, 1/8 c of oats and corn meal. The rest remained the same. The BBQ sauce and the liquid smoke was a nice touch. After reading that the posters thought it was very moist and hard to get out of pan--I lined the loaf pan w/ sprayed foil which made lifting it out of the pan very easy. My husband likes brown gravy w/ his meatloaf so I served it w/ one of those envelop gravy packets. We really liked it and being turkey--it was healthier.

Feta Cheese Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
I made this easy recipe for Easter dinner. It was a hit. The feta cheese gave it a really nice flavor. I added garlic powder to the mashed potatoes and used 1% milk.

Cottoneyed Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
I made this for our New Year's party. It was so easy and really tasty! I sauteed the onion, celery and garlic in the bacon fat after cooking the bacon. I could not find jalapeno black eye peas so used three cans of seasoned peas and added 1 1/2 t. chopped jalapenos. I will definately make this again.

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
First time to make biscotti. This is a real tasty and easy recipe. The pistachio with cranberry are so good together. Make it for yourself or for gifts. It ships well, too.

Pumpkin Cookies II

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
I had a cup of pumpkin puree left over from making my pumpkin pie which was perfect to make this recipe. I added ground cloves, nutmeg, walnuts and raisins. Using a small 'ice cream scoop' was so easy to spoon on small teaspoon-size cookie dough on to the baking pans. It made approximately 4-5 dozen little soft cookies. I sprinkled granulated sugar on top of each just before baking. Yum!

Greek Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2014
These are the best Greek Green Beans (Fasolakia). The secret is to give them plenty of time to simmer to really fuse the flavors. I cook them for at least 60 minutes. I used i large onion (diced), a bit more garlic (3 cloves, diced) and 1 can of diced tomatoes with garlic and basil. A good tip is to add a good glug (maybe 1/3 cup or so) of red wine the last 20 minutes of simmering. I serve them with roasted lamb from the grill and crispy oven roasted potato wedges.

Danish Almond Puff

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2005
Wow...did this recipe bring back very fond memories! Although my mom made it for me as a child, I have never made it myself. It was very easy and was quite a hit with my Progressive Dinner group. Make this one and you will have raves at your next brunch!

Penne Pasta with Veggies

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
The picture looked so good we had to try it. I was concerned that since it didn't have a sauce it would be dry but it was light and full of flavor. I used diced salami since proscuitto tends to be pricey. It worked great... I used one jar of sun-dried tomatoes with the oil. Also instead of a bell pepper I used jarred roasted red pepper (added to the salami and sundried tomatoes). It was a pretty dish coming out of the oven.

Pesto-Stuffed Pork Chops with Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
This was a big hit at dinner. My husband and I really enjoyed it. Firstly I doubled the recipe for 4 boneless pork chops. I stuffed the chops with pesto and applied the rub about 2 hours prior to browning/baking. This may have added marinated flavor inside and out. I used a large cast-iron pan to cook the onions and then hot-seared the stuffed boneless chops for 1 min/side. I did find when putting the pan into the oven that it smoked up--I just added 1/2 cup of water. The water made a nice little sauce to go w/ the onions and pork chops. 20 minutes is all it took to bake. I chose not to add the extra pesto over the top at the end. Watch out for the toothpick when serving. Some recipe I read suggested using raw spaghetti to secure pockets. Maybe worth a try. This is company quality!

Chicken and Red Bean Enchiladas

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2014
This was a nice spin on an old favorite. Some changes I have made... I grilled chicken breasts and shredded them and instead of tomato sauce I use a can of enchilada sauce and simmer it with the sauteed onions and broth. My family prefers the kidney beans to be slightly mashed but a little chunky. Another portion of a can of enchiladas sauce may be needed for the top with shredded cheddar cheese added the last 5-8 minutes of baking.

Pesto Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2011
I always want to try a good turkey burger recipe. This one is pretty good. It has great flavor and the bread crumbs help to hold it together yet remain juicy. I did not add any of the salt as I felt that was way too much. I used only 1/4 c. of seasoned bread crumbs. Grilled with a little mayo, lettuce and tomato....it was yummy.

Chicken Salad with Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2014
I have made this salad twice now this summer. Both were hits. I have to admit, I hate it when writers say how wonderful a recipe was only to say they made all these changes but here I go. I love the addition of bacon to the salad but I really like to add fruit to give a sweetness and a variety of textures. I added sliced green olives, sliced red grapes, pineapple and walnuts. The lemon and Worcestershire sauce gives a nice zing. My Bunco and Beach friends were very complimentary. Thanks Brit!

Pork with Peach and Black Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
The pork was unbelievably tender. I used a Boneless Sirloin Roast. I don't know if browning it with the corn meal was the secret. The cornmeal stuck to the cubed pork so well. I did have to use 3-4 tablespoons of olive oil vs the recipe's 1 Tablespoon. This meal was as pretty as it was tasty, and it was equally as good the next night for leftovers. I have made this several times. We really enjoy it.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2005
My family really enjoyed this recipe. We didn't change a thing except I used my own spaghetti sauce. Oh! I should tell you to save on heating my kitchen in the summer, I cooked it on my gas Webber grill. I was able to keep the temperature constant. Now that was a good conversation topic over a fantastic dish of ziti.

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
A very tasty sandwich for sure. I used posters' suggestions for 1 bottle of beer, 2 beef boullion, 1 pkg dry italian dressing,and 1 1/2 onion sliced. With only jarred chopped garlic on hand, I made lots of slits and pushed in the chopped garlic. I was a chicken and used only 8 oz of pepperoncini, sliced. I think I could go with more next time. It took a long time to cook so it would break down. Plan on at least 8-10 hours. Once it is shredded, put back into the pot and stir it around in the juices. Simmer for another 1/2 hour or so. It was so juicy. Add some provolone!! Yum!

BBQ Feta and Hot Banana Pepper Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: May 22, 2010
This has become one of our favorite turkey burgers. I only gave it 4 stars because I have altered it some to our likings. I make them with 1 lb gr turkey, 1-2 chopped pepperoncini, 5-6 small roasted peppers (chopped), 1/2 lb feta crumbled, 7-8 chopped calamata olives. When grilling, make a well in center of burgers. Spray grill w/ olive oil before placing burgers on .
