Baked Ziti II

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
Need to add a little salt, garlic, and Italian seasoning to the cheese mixture. Also, extra sauce needed for reheating because pasta absorbs a lot of it. Kids LOVED it!

Shrimp and Asparagus

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
This is the only way I've gotten my 5 year old to willingly eat asparagus! This is best described as shrimp scampi plus pasta and veggies. DELICIOUS! I tried to cut back on the butter and oil, but I ended up having to add it back because it's the basis for the sauce. Definitely not a "light" recipe, but a wonderful treat every now and then. Will definitely mark this a "keeper" per my 5 year old's request.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
Used about 1 tsp salt instead of a pinch. This was excellent. Tasted like buttered popcorn! Next time will add a pinch of sugar right when it comes out of the oven.

Red and Green Christmas Jalapeno Jelly

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
I was going to give this 4 stars at first because of the strong cider vinegar taste when I first tried it. Then it's like the flavors blended better after the first 24 hours. When I found myself eating it straight out of the jar, I changed my rating. LOL Make sure to mince the peppers finely so you don't have large chunks of pepper skins stuck in your teeth. I used 1 large red bell pepper and 4 good sized jalapenos with seeds from 2 peppers. Just the right amount of heat. Yield was 2-1/2 pint-size jars. The half jar didn't last long, and my mother already took one of the two jars! Got to make more!

Bacon Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
Good concept, sort of like chicken and dumplings meets loaded potato soup! I used whole milk instead of half-n-half and cut back by 1 cup, but still too runny for me, even after adding 1 T cornstarch. Will try with more cornstarch next time. I also used bone-in chicken thighs, then used forks to shred meat from bones and returned to pot before adding milk. Also sub chicken stock cubes in water for actual broth. Otherwise worked well! Follow baking mix box directions for dumplings and resist the urge to stir once the dumplings are in. Let them steam with the lid on for full 10 mins.

EAGLE BRAND® Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
I used 1 cup of crunchy peanut butter instead of 1/2 cup creamy plus peanuts. Added a pinch of salt. This tasted a bit like a Snickers bar minus the chocolate. Rave reviews at home!

Moussaka

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2008
I broiled the eggplant slices for about 8 minutes instead of frying. I also didn't have any tomato sauce on hand, so I used half a jar of pasta sauce (7-herb variety), and it turned out great. I'm not sure what the traditional way of serving moussaka is, but I served it over white rice, and it was excellent.

Creamed Spinach with Jalapenos

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
I doubled the amount of spinach but forgot to increase the liquids. I omitted the jalapeƱos because my son can't eat them. It had a good flavor though, which we enjoyed.

Three Cheese Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
My husband and I like a lot of garlic, so I used 3 cloves instead of 2 as called for in the recipe. I think it was still rather mild, so maybe next time I'll try 4 cloves. This came out creamy and cheesy, and my guests loved it, too. Definitely a keeper.

Mint Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
I mixed cider and red wine vinegars for this one, and I also added between 1/2 and 3/4 of a tsp of sugar to help cut the tartness. It tastes just like I remember it did back when lamb with mint sauce was served for our school dinners in England in the mid-80s.

Deep Fried Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
This was my first attempt at fried pickles, and they turned out great. Very easy recipe. There was a lot of leftover batter though, so you can use it on other veggies, too.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
This is lighter and fluffier than the savory dressing we normally fix. The fruit lends an unexpected sweetness, so plan to balance that out with more savory sides. We like to fix this with wheat rolls or different breads at the bakery's sale racks.

Thai Spiced Barbecue Shrimp

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
I ended up cooking this in a skillet, and it still had great flavor. Add a little corn starch mixed with cold water to the pan juices to make a great sauce. Goes well with coconut rice for a more authentic experience.

Asian Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
I've had the real deal from street vendors in Malaysia. This wasn't bad, but still not as sweet as what you get in the Far East. I needed to add more water to get the rice to cook through.

Amish Friendship Bread Starter

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
Incredibly easy to do and hard to mess up. It beats spending money on a "powdered starter mix" that some websites advertise.

Bread and Butter Pickles II

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2007
Try using half the cider vinegar in the recipe and replace it with regular white vinegar, if you like a slightly tarter pickle. This is an awesome recipe and very easy to do. Definitely a keeper.
