Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
Wow, was this delicious! I had to make substitutions due to what I had in the house. I used v-8 juice and used canned diced tomatoes and put them in the blender. And I had to use some cream cheese and a teaspoon of flour to thicken-but I loved it!

Lucky and Rippy's Favorite Dog Food

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
After having my dog break out in a rash from corn allergy, but trying to save money on the food. Did my first run of it. Comes down to about a dollar a day to feed both my dogs. ( 70 pound and 15 pound) I read it was recommended to feed 1 cup per 35 pounds body weight, if that helps anyone. I plan on rotating chicken and fish. For the fish I used tilapia, can tuna, pack of salmon. I did about a little under half meat then the other half was white and brown rice, potato, eggs scrambled in olive oil, carrot, and brocolli. They absolutely loved it. And I feel so much better feeding them quality food instead of spending 15 dollars on a cheap bag of dog food that's practically all corn, what a rip off.

Mediterranean Medley Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
I would say a little too much going on for me personally. I wanted a cold rice side dish to go with Italian sandwiches. I left out the tuna and some of vegetables, and went more with multi colored peppers, onion, basil, corn, blk olives and tomatoes. I liked quite well.

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
Loved it. Only change was to use melted provolone cheese instead of the feta.

Glazed Lemon Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
For more lemon flavor--totally skip the milk and substitute with a cup of lemon juice. For a prettier cake--instead of greasing and flouring, grease then use sugar. It works better than flour and makes the cake prettier than dry flour baked to the surface. Enjoy!

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
It turned out well. I am accustomed to a richer quiche flavor, but I wanted to try this recipe to go more on the healthy side. Next time I will compromise and substitute some of the cottage cheese for cream and I think I will enjoy it more. Also a little garlic and onion powder give some extra flavor.

Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
OMG!!! Just wonderful. I had no idea how to make Enchilada Sauce. When I saw how inexpensive and easy this recipe was, I had my doubts. But it was better than any store bought product we have ever bought. So fresh, and with no added preservatives or fillers. We could hardly wait 3 days to have it again!

Heavenly White Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
Cake turned out and tasted great!! A definate keeper. Unfortunately the frosting recipe I picked out didn't turn out too good..hahaha....but still not bad enough to ruin the cake!

Rice and Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2008
I think I am going to try it with minced dried onions instead of the soup mix--since many people didn't care for strong taste...and it's so much cheaper and healthier than those salty packages. I am also going to use some white wine and water instead of the milk.

Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: May 9, 2008
Turned out great. Used pinenuts-never tried the walnuts before, might give it a try next time. Didn't have fresh basil. Probably used around a fourth of a cup of dried basil.

Amazing Cocktail Sauce

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
Forgot to pick up cocktail sauce for a party, so in a panic found this recipe. It's just as good if not better than the jar. Only thing I changed after tasting it, was to add a sprinkle of garlic powder. Also I didn't have chili sauce so I just added some chili powder to the catsup and tasted great.

Green Onion Dip II

Reviewed: May 2, 2008
I changed it quite bit, but it came out so delicious, I thought I'd share. Used a 16 oz sour cream, and about 8 ounces of activa yogurt. Chopped the green onions in a food processor, so they were very fine. Added a couple teaspoons of salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and just a hint of dill, maybe 1/2 teaspoon. Wonderful flavor

Beer-Batter Onion Rings

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
This is wonderful recipe. The batter must be of pancake batter consistancy. So add extra beer as needed. Recipe as written is good. But on our second batch we decided to add some spices to see if it would make them more flavorfull. We really enjoyed them better with the spices. We added some paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, red pepper, extra salt.

Olive Chicken II

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
I used pre-sliced olives for convenience. I added some cornstarch as someone suggested. It did cook fairly fast no more than ten minutes needed after the browning stage. It was a very quick and easy meal to put together. I will probably make it again sometime.

Vegetarian Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2008
I will give 4 stars for the nice idea of using all these great vegetables, but the recipe needs 'help' No bake lasagna noodles need a good amount of sauce in order for them to cook and stay moist, and they need some extra time. To fix this recipe you will need at least two jars of pasta sauce or use a large can of tomato sauce, add olive oil, and spices. Put the sauce at the bottom of the pan, and add sauce over each layer and on top. Chop your veggies very fine and small. Bake at 350 cover tightly with foil and bake for an hour. Let sit 10 minutes before serving. This recipe will be fine if you do this.

Green Beans with Bread Crumbs

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
After reading the negative comments on the bread crumbs, I just made it without them and I thought it was super! I just used canned green beans too. It kind of tasted like spinach fettucine alfredo.

Amish Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
Recipe needs to be cut down a bit for a 1 1/2 lb bread machine. Bread was good. As far as comments about it being too sweet. It is a sweeter bread, but I think that is how it is intended to be. It is not sweet in a bad way by any means. I will make it again, exactly as the recipe states.

Crusty Potato Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
Thanks to the last viewer who alerted us to the fact that a smaller bread machine will not accomodate the recipe. If you change the servings from 15 to 12 it will make the recipe a good size for a 1 1/2 lb bread machine.

Cocktail Meatballs IV

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
I was afraid of it being too sweet. I felt I had to tweak it to make it taste good. My final recipe turned out to be 1-jar chili sauce 2 oz low sugar grape jelly 1 small can tomato paste 1-teasp. onion powder 2 tbsp dijon mustard Used thawed premade frozen meatballs in crockpot on low for 3 hours. Everyone at the party said they were really good, none were left.
