Hamburger Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
This recipe was the bomb! My husband and I just loved it. The only thing I did different was I used ground turkey and a larger can of diced tomatoes instead of the smaller can of crushed. Also, to make it a bit healthier I used only half of the amount of butter and flour. The soup was still very flavorful but with half the calories and fat. Thanks Sandra for for giving my family such a superb recipe!

Spinach Salad with Peaches and Pecans

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2006
This salad was awesome and got rave reviews from the ultra picky husband! The only things I changed were adding fresh parmesean cheese and I drizzled honey over the pecans before baking. Also, the 1/4 cup of poppy sead dressing seemed to be too much and made the spinach leafs a little soggy, so I had to add a cup more spinach. So you might want to add dressing to taste instead of pouring the whole 1/4 cup in like I did.

Tomato Pasta Toss

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2007
Thank you so much Rebecca for helping me make an excellent meal when I only had two garden tomatoes left! My family raved about this meal. The only things I did diferently was adding 1 teaspoon of basil and oregano and I used 2 tomatoes instead of one. Thanks a bunch!! :)

Buttery Almond Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2007
Wow these were great! In fact, I'm eating one right now. The really cool part about it was that I happened to have all 5 indredients on hand and was able to whip these up in a flash. These taste just like the ones my grandma used to make. Sadly, they were not a favorite of the kids mainly because of the almonds, but oh well. This just means there are more cookies that I don't have to share!! Thanks for the great recipe.

Traditional Style Vegan Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
Wow! This was out of this world delicious!!! I have been making more vegan dishes for health reasons and thought I would try this one out. I cooked the recipe exactly as written and it turned out fantastic. It was so good my husband asked me if I had in fact thrown ground beef in it. The next day he had two more servings for breakfast!! Thanks Laura for submitting such a great recipe!!

Classic Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
I was happy with the way the base and soup turned out. My husband has a cold and requested chicken noodle soup. Instead of Campbells like I normally do in these situations, I decided to surprise him. Growing up in a family of Vegetarians, it kinda grossed me out to have to take the meat off a chicken and throw the bones and skin in with the chicken broth, but ultimately it was worth the dirty dead. I did not add the peas because it didn't sound good to me, and used only one onion instead of two as another reader suggested. Also, I added two cups more water as the soup tasted a little concentrated. This was excellent!

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2007
This was absolutely devine! My family and friends consumed these cookies in less than a day. I rolled the cookies in sugar as one reader mentioned to make them crunchy and when they were done stuck them in the freezer for 10 minutes to keep the chocolate from running. They came out perfectly!!

Tiny Chicken Turnovers

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
I thought these were okay. Husband felt they were a little too rich for dinner. My sons didn't like the cream cheese in it. I'm thinking these would work great as an appetizer for a special occasion, but not as an everyday type of meal.

Creamy Butternut Squash With Cinnamon Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
Wow! This was absolutely devine. I had this strange craving for butternut squash soup and initially couldn't decide which recipe on here to try. I chose this one because I like cinnamon and I happened to have apple chips already on hand for the garnish. I followed the instructions exactly as written except I roasted the squash for 45 minutes as some of the other reviewers had done. I was happy that it made so much soup and thought I could reheat this for the next few days until my husband came home and ate 6 of the 8 servings. The next day for breakfast, he consumed the last remaning serving! Be sure to add the apple chips as garnish because it was excellent with the soup.

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
I love, love, love, love this recipe for banana bread! I cannot count the number of times family, friends and co-workers have asked me for this recipe and I have guided them to this site. The only thing different from the recipe is I substitute 1 teaspoon of white vinegar with 1/3 cup of milk for five minutes (as suggested by another reviewer) for the buttermilk.

Neat Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
These sloppy joes were pretty tasty! I noticed some of the reviewers saying the mixture was too runny so I just cooked the liquid down a bit and they were perfect. Next time I make these though, I might reduce the brown sugar a bit because it seemed a little sweet. But, otherwise these were great and I will keep this recipe for future use.

Tofu and Veggies in Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
I wasen't very impressed with this recipe. I don't know if I didn't follow the directions right, but this was not so good. The sauce was thick, with the look and consistancy of brown gravy and I wasen't fond of the sweet and peanut buttery taste.

Curly Noodle Dinner

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2007
I was so impressed with this meal! Not only did I happen to have the ingredients, but it looked and tasted like I had spent a lot of time preparing this wonderful creation!! I did what the previous reviewer suggested and didn't add the water. Also, I used ground turkey and chicken flavored ramen noodles instead of the beef because that is what I had on hand

Home Style Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2007
This recipe was excellent. I would give 10 stars if I could!!! I read the other reviews and doubled the macaroni and used club crackers mixed with butter instead. This is one of the best mac and cheese dishes I have ever tried.

Luscious Spinach Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2005
This recipie is wonderful! I made this for an appitizer last Thanksgiving and everyone wants me to make this again for the hollidays. The only thing I do differently is I add parmesean cheese instead of the Romano simply because I usually have parmesean on hand. This is so awesome with tostitos!

Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
This is a really great recipe for when I am wanting chicken salad fast. Also, I make many substitutions and yet it still turns out excellent! Today, instead of the grapes, I added diced strawberries, and chopped dates instead of the cranberries/raisins. Also, used Vegenaise instead of Mayo. This is an awesome and simple recipe!

Pistachio Crusted Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
I was really surprised with how great this chicken tasted. I did reduce the bread crumbs to 1/4 a cup and am glad because I think 1/2 would have tasted a little to breaded.
