Jalapeno Poppers I

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2006
This is a hit every time I make it and people can't believe it's homemade! I use reduced fat mayo, cream cheese, and cheddar/monterey jack cheeses. I also use corn flake bread crumbs instead of cereal, I find that it sticks better. Also it's wise to use latex gloves when handling the peppers.

D's Famous Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
A great base salsa! However, I did modify slightly...I used fresh tomatoes from the garden, 3 cloves fresh minced garlic, skipped the green chilis and added a chopped jalepeno, red onion as well as a vidalia and used fresh corn (right off the cob!). I also used a whole lime instead of 1/2 and added a bit more fresh cilantro then the recipe called for. I ended up making 2 batches, one with corn and one without! GREAT recipe, thank you!!

Baked Zucchini Chips

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2007
THE BEST!I've always had the fried zucchini my whole life, but not after this! I did take the advice of others and increased the seasonings...I added a packet of dry Italian dressing to the breadcrumb mixture and some garlic powder as well. I also did not slice the zucchini as thick as the ones in the picture. When I baked them, I sprinkled with fresh parmesan and drizzled (slightly!) with olive oil and baked longer (20 min or so) then the recipe called for and they turned out perfect! My step daughter who doesn't like zucchini, loved these! Will definitely be making again! I would have to say the prep time is longer then the 5 min stated, but worth it. Thanks for the recipe!

Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
This by far is one of my favorites! I get compliments every time I make it. I did change it up a bit though..I add cauliflower, carrots, radishes and sunflower seeds. Great for the flavor and the look of the overall salad! Every time there's a party to attend, I get requests for this one each time! Thanks for the recipe!

Baked Corn I

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2006
I make this for Thanksgiving and it's always a hit! I opt to use fresh frozen corn instead of canned, it seems to add more sweetness. I've also topped it with a little shredded cheddar and let that bake until brown. Awesome!

Abby's Chicken Rollatini

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2006
Absolutely one of our favorites! Make sure to use REAL mozzarella...the flavor is so much smoother and nicer than when using shredded processed cheese. Will make again and again!

Greek Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2008
Will definitely make again! Good flavor and very easy to make! I served over whole wheat linguine with fat free feta. Next time I will add kalamata olives like someone suggested. Will also add zucchini for something different. A keeper in my book! Thanks!

Cranberry Sauce Extraordinaire

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
I rated this recipe years ago and had to submit an update. I am asked to make this every Thanksgiving and Christmas. Here are the revisions I've made...I add fresh ginger and cloves along with the cinnamon and nutmeg. I omit the dried fruit and salt because I don't think they're necessary. Also I use walnuts instead of pecans and only use about 3/4 cup of organic pure cane sugar. A hit every time I make this!! Also found if there ARE leftovers this tastes great spread on toast! :-)

Chicken Parmesan Bundles

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2012
Great recipe! Would use less spinach next time though. I also combined the ritz crackers with some Italian breadcrumbs to give it a nice texture. I served the marinara sauce on the side. Next time I'm going to add some pancetta to the mixture to give it some more flavor. I pounded the chicken breasts thin to make it e3asier to roll up. But overall I think this was a good recipe and super easy to make!

Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2008
Very good flavor! Easy to make. I took the advice of another and made in a dutch oven instead of slow cooker...much quicker! Also, I only added about a 1/2 cup of water instead of the 2 cups it calls for. To me this is another rendition of a chili, I suppose if you added the water it would then be a soup. I also used lean ground beef as well as ground turkey. Served over tortilla chips with grated cheese, sour cream and chopped jalepenos. Very good!

Easiest Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
After reading all the reviews I decided to modify the recipe. I first carmelized the onions and mushrooms along with 2 cloves minced garlic in butter, then added chicken broth instead of beef broth, about a 1/4 cup white wine and salt and pepper. In the end, I thickened with cornstarch instead of flour (based on other reviews, I don't like a floury taste). Turned out great! Served over baked chicken.

Ricotta Stuffed Zucchini

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2007
I used fat free ricotta and also added fresh garlic and sprinkled Italian breadcrumbs on top. I think the flavor was good, but next time I will add more seasonings and maybe some chopped tomatoes.

Cheese and Bacon Potato Balls

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2006
VERY tasty! However, I wish they would've remained round balls after baking, they spread out, but that may have been due to the sour cream I added. I would eliminate that next time. I also let them cook for a minute or two under the broiler to get them crispier on top.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2012
Good base recipe. I used ground chicken and substituted red/orange peppers for green. Also put a small amount of Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce instead of brown sugar and also addded about a teaspoon of worcestershire sauce. Nice flavor!

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2006
Great flavor and texture! I baked a bit longer than recipe called for so the center would get done and it turned out fine. Will make again!

Baked Onion Rings

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2006
I modified several steps of this recipe..I chose to not use the resealable bags, but instead used bowls. I did not soak the onions in ice water (didn't see the point). I dipped in egg mixture and then into flour and then finally into a bread crumb/corn flake crumbs mixture. It helped to dip twice to make the coating thicker. I drizzled a bit of olive oil into the baking dish and baked according to original recipe....VERY GOOD!! Next time I will try without the olive oil to see if they get as crispy. Sprinkled with parmesan/romano hot out of the oven! Yum!
