Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
This was so good. The trick is to TASTE the dressing before you pour it all over the broccoli mixture. DON't put it on if you think it's to vinegary. Add more mayo, or more sugar and fix it before you ruin a bunch of perfectly good broccoli. We added raisins to ours and my 9 year old nearly ate half of a double batch. I was about to omit the onion, but I'm glad I didn't. Its really good. I can't say that I made the dressing to the recipe, but again- TASTE and ADJUST to suit you. Better to toss a few tablespoons of dressing than alllllll that other good stuff!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
YUM! I made this into one giant "cookie cake" for my son's birthday. I followed other's advice and chilled the "dough" for an hour or so before baking. I blobbed it onto a 15" pizza pan and baked for about 24 minutes. I usually throw out some cake after a party. This was GONE! I only got a tiny sliver and it was really good. I wish I had doubled the batch- just so I had some to enjoy. Thanks for a great recipe!

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
These brownies were great, though I had my doubts as the "batter" was basically sand with worms, as my babysitter coined it. Very dry batter that moistens as the zuke bakes. Mine were a little lumpy and did not hold together as I would have liked but MY KIDS LOVED THEM and never knew there was a veggie lurking under the surface! Thanks for a great, easy, yummy way to use up all the zucchini in my fridge!

Summer Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
My family really liked this! I used shredded zuke (bc thats what I had) and a box of stovetop instead of the crutons and I didnt have the soup so it was sour cream, butter, some water (as called for in the stuffing, but not much bc the zuke will release juice as it cooks) and cheese, in the oven with the ham for an hour. Even Miss Picky ate most of it and said it was sooooo good! Little Mr Picky did also. Thanks for a great way to get a veggie into my unsuspecting family!

Cake Mix Cookies IV

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
Forgot to bake the cookies for the field trip to the local firehouse until 30 mins before the bus came! This recipe saved the day. Why bother with scratch!? These cookies were really good, and I am not easy to impress. I used a chocolate cake mix and chocolate chips and did just what the recipe said. They were awesome- chewy with a little crispy crust. Baked for 15 mins on stoneware. Yummy flavor. Can't go wrong with chocolate. I sent 2 dozen for the firemen and had to stop myself from eating the rest before the kids got home from school! YUM!

Bake Sale Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2008
This was a decent lemon bar recipe. I have no desire to pucker up over my lemon bars, so after reading the reviews I made a few modifications (but not as many as some people). FILLING: I added the 1/4 cup lemon juice PLUS the pulp and the rind (used one of those citrus zesters with the little holes in it that makes curly strips)of one lemon. Added one extra egg, 1 extra TBS flour and left the sugar and everything else the same. CRUST: Added a pinch of salt. **Noticed some people complained about the crust not filling the pan. DO NOT MELT the butter. If you do, you will end up with a wet dough ball that won't fill the pan. Cut the soft butter into the dry ingredients with two forks or a pastry blender. You should end up with a pile of crumbs that you can then pat into a nice crust that is perfect for a 9X13 pan. My 4 yr old helped with that part. The results were tasty, not too tangy, looked pretty and only used 2 lemons! Yum!

Orzo with Mushrooms and Walnuts

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2008
Really really good!! I halved the recipe and I thought it still seemed like a LOT of muchrooms but it was perfect. Like someone else, I added some spinach (fresh) and it was very pretty and tasty. My kids were not thrilled that it had mushroooms but one bite and they all happily ate it. By the way, I used whole wheat orzo, since it is healthier than normal orzo and it tasted great. There was no "you tried to make this healthy" regret! Thanks!!

Pasta Pomodoro

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
Just wanted to mention that saving pasta water to use instead of chicken broth doesn't make the sauce as thin and is tastier than regular water.

Sweet and Sour Pork Patties

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
Really Really good. Had to make with grnd turkey since my tchotchke store had no ground pork. The consistency was a little mushy, although they were cooked through. Not sure why.... Anyway, really good despite. Kids and hubby are like they were starving and had seconds and thirds. Yummy!! Everyone would be happy to see this go into the rotation! Thanks!!

Green Tomato Relish

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2007
I love this recipe... although I had my doubts. I usually throw out the whole tomato bush, tomatoes and all, at the end of the season. Well, no more! This was easy, tasty and looks pretty in the jars. I have only ever canned jelly so the 30 min hot water bath thing was a bit much since I have no canning supplies. Just make sure your biggest jars fit in your biggest pot with plenty of room above it for water. Mine didn't and there were two jars that I could not process that are hanging out in the fridge. No matter, though, they won't last long!! All I changed was that I added extra salt and a little more vinegar than called for. Tastes like sweet pickles, NOTHING like tomatoes, in case you are worried. Also, I had a variety of tomatoes: big, little, cherry. Some were green, some were a little orange, I think maybe a few red ones even snuck in. One thing I'd love to try is adding heat, like a hot pepper or red pepper flakes to zip it up even more. I'll let y'all know if I try it! YUM!

Pizza On The Grill II

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
I love grill pizza! (Keep in mind that many grocery stores sell bags of pizza dough so you don't have to buy that stuff in a tube.) I grilled my well oiled dough on one side for just a min or so (our grill cooks super hot) and then flipped and topped with pesto, mozz and sliced tomatoes. Awesome!! Also make a normal one with sauce and cheese for the kiddos. SO much better than baking in the oven. No sog and doesn't heat up your house!!

Blackened Tuna

Reviewed: May 25, 2007
This is a really simple recipe, which is a good thing, but because of the simplicity, how it "turns out" depends largely on the quality of your ingredients. I bought a cheap piece of tuna and used a cajun seasoning that was just "ok" and my results were edible, but not great. I think that if you had a great piece of fish and a seasoning blend that you really liked, it could be a GREAT recipe. Simple, easy, quick. Great for a summer night. My advice would be to buy good ingredients and give it a shot!

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
Made these for an appetizer on Valentine's Day. They were good. My only problem is that I don't own a deep fryer and I hesitated to waste 3 cups of oil to fry 12 shrimp (I refuse to save it like my grandma used to). So, my result was cooked shrimp in a kind of cooked coconut breading. The consistency was kind of chewy rather than crispy, but that was my fault. Think I may try toasting the coconut first, if I decide to make them again. Also, I tried substituting rum for the beer as someone else suggested and it was yummy! As a dipping sauce, I reduced about 1/2 cup of OJ until it was syrupy and then added about a t. of honey and a t. of mustard (did not have the h.radish or marmalade) Result was good, since it was a pinch. Thanks!

The Way to a Man's Heart

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
This was good. It was pretty easy to make and had good flavor. It was too rich for me, but my husband loved it. Guess that is how it got it's name... Nice for a special dinner but won't make my "regulars" list. PS- I used flounder as the fish and fat free evap. milk (but it was still really rich).

Amish Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2006
My plan was to give this a really bad review. No offense, but this meatloaf came out like a "meat pudding" which I served with a spoon rather like normal meatloaf. It came together like a dream, baked up well, smelled good and then crumbled into wet chunks when I cut it. Fortunatly, the wet chunks were very tasty, all my kids and my husband had seconds, and I found myself spooning extra bites after mine was gone too. Hubby said it was "really good meatloaf" and sheepishly had a third serving. So, I am giving it 4 stars, 5 for taste and 3 for appearance. :). By the way, the next day, the loaf seemed to "set up" a bit and could be cut and served the way meatloaf should: with a knife!

Tasty Tuna Burgers

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2006
YUM. Not sure what people did wrong with this recipe. My kids LOVED these. I am always on the lookout for kid-friendly fish recipes. I did make the following changes: Subbed ketchup for the chili sauce and ommitted the hot sauce. Added juice of 1/2 a lime. Ran out of bread crumbs so I crushed up ritz crackers for 1/2 of the cup I needed (since I doubled recipe). THIS is what I think made them extra yummy. I dropped them by the soup spoonful (a la chocolate chip cookie) into a skillet with a little olive oil and browned them on both sides. I doubled the recipe and my three kids (6,5 and 2.5) ate them ALL for lunch. I think the recipe would be awesome with a spicy dip as appetizers. I will definitely be making these weekly. Thanks!!
