German-Style Spinach

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
This was good and serviceable. Needed various ways to cook green leafy vegetables without many calories. I did not use the bacon -- and that may have been the secret ingredient needed to blast it into five star territory. We weren't wowed by it. I may make it again and tweak it in various ways.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
This recipe didn't turn me into a fan, unfortunately. I would have given this recipe three stars but my husband raved about them. He ate the whole lot of them and would have eaten more. He was delighted with them. I used frozen Brussels Sprouts, sliced in half as some suggested. Looks like I'll be making these again for my husband. I'll rate again if I change my opinion!

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
Used one quart regular V-8, one quart spicy V-8, one small can of Mexican tomatoes (as I did not have regular canned tomatoes) and added about 1/4 salsa. Also did not use beef broth but homemade chicken broth -- probably about 6 cups. The chicken broth had plenty of seasonings in it, so did not add onion soup mix. Did add a couple of dashes of garlic powder. This soups whacks a wallop -- very tasty and spicy. Is not overpowered by tomatoes, as others have suggested. I'll make it again for sure and use different ratios of spices, tomatoes, etc. We'll see if my husband loses weight! Will post an update if so!

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
Cream cheese made batter lumpy -- but I was mixing by hand, so took more work. Boy, was it worth it! This is delicious! Added lots more bananas soaked in a couple tablespoons of lemon juice.

Southern Pecan Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
Used light corn syrup. This came out too sweet for us. Made two pecan pies for Christmas dinner, this one and another. The other one "won." The difference may have been that I used light corn in this one and dark corn syrup in the other one. Liked the richness of the dark corn syrup better.

Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
Made two pecan pies with two different recipes. This one won the contest of family members. Baked a bit too long so became hard, but was still very appetizing.

Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
Been improvising this glaze for years. Stud the ham with cloves after cutting diagonal pattern on top. Decorated with pineapples as shown. Did not have Dijon mustard, so used brown mustard. Also tasty.

Hungarian Potato Stew -- Paprikas Krumpli

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
Scrumptious! Easy to adapt to your family's tastes in terms of hot and spicy or mild and savory.

Spicy Indian (Gujarati) Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
I love green beans and wanted to find other ways to fix them. I bought one of the huge frozen green bean package from Sam's Club and used those. Used horseradish rather than black mustard seed as others suggested. Liked it and would make it again for sure, but not my favorite green bean dish.

Toffee Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
Used to make these all the time years ago, but had forgotten the recipe. Glad to find it here! Made these a few days ago with butter but did not bake the bottom long enough, so it was hard to spread the chocolate. Found that the bars were much, much better after they cooled. Made them again tonight with (horrors) Blue Bonnet margarine. BIG mistake. Real butter is needed. Soft brown sugar is needed so that you won't have islands of melted brown sugar clumps in the bottom part. BTW, I remember the trick I used to do long ago with these bars. I put the chocolate (such as milk chocolate chips) on top of the bottom and let it sit for about 2 minutes after I've turned off the oven. It makes spreading much easier. Also, since we could not decide on the nut topping, I designated three sections of 1) walnuts, 2) almond slivers, and 3) no nuts. I used blanched almond slices a couple of days ago and that tasted best of all.

Cranberry Apple Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
One week after Thanksgiving and I still had homemade cranberry sauce from this site (1 c orange juice, 1 cup sugar, 1 bag cranberries). Loved that recipe so much I doubled it, so still had some left over -- maybe about 2 cups or so. Cut fresh Gala apples -- about 4 large ones -- until the consistency looked rather like not just cranberry sauce but somehow more like pie filling -- no spices or additional sugar, then put topping on. I loved it and will always keep this in my recipe file as I hate throwing out homemade cranberry sauce after the holiday feasting is over. Very, very tasty. Needs no tweaking on spices at all. The fruits (in my case, apple, cranberry and orange juice) carry the recipe to perfection.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
Made teeny tiny crescents then switched over to larger ones. The small crescents became a bit too dry and didn't have that wow effect that the larger ones did. Made two batches. Used half of the second batch for cinnamon rolls (brown sugar/cinnamon sprinkled on the butter), then put them unbaked in the fridge for post-Thanksgiving breakfast for guests who stayed overnight. That sure was handy! Would make these again.

Curry Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
I had left-over pumpkin in a can after making cookies, so was looking what to do with it. Found this recipe and then made a whole Indian dinner based around it. Actually this was amazingly tasty. My husband and son were scarfing it up until I told them it was pumpkin and then they lost their enthusiasm. Note to self: wait a while and then make again, hoping they will forget that it has pumpkin in it... Otherwise, wonderful and different. Thanks for the recipe.

Raita

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
Thought this was very tasty. Don't usually add tomato to my raita and liked the mix. Will make again.

Uncooked Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
Tasty, although I added lots, lots, lots more bananas. Sliced them down into thin slices and sprinkled them with reconstituted lemon juice to make sure they wouldn't turn black. Used regular flavored instance vanilla pudding, but probably will use French vanilla next time and/or add vanilla extract. Wanted just a tad more vanilla flavoring. Used generic vanilla wafer cookies, so maybe that might make a difference as well.

Crunchy Peanut Butter Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
Followed the directions to the letter, but maybe my shortening was at fault... My dipping chocolate was runny and the balls I dipped in them turned out to be lumpy masses. If I make this over again, would likely put the chocolate chip, marshmallow creme and peanut butter mixture in a 13x9 pan like regular krispie treats, then brush the chocolate mixture on top. BTW, I used Cocoa Krispies instead of Rice Krispies. Tasty, but what a mess...

Steakhouse Wheat Bread for the Bread Machine

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
These were tasty but not as good as another knock-off I found on another site. These didn't seem to be dense enough and were a bit too heavy handed on the cocoa/sweet taste. Whereas the other ones I would make again, these -- not so much. A good recipe but not a great one.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
Made muffins in a Pampered Chef baking stone muffin pan. 1/2 had walnuts mixed in and 1/2 did not. Used Blue Bonnet margarine and mashed bananas, otherwise made as directed. Oh, did I mention that this was FABULOUS? The baking stone muffins had just a little bit of crunchiness to the outer crust from the caramelized sugar. Will make again for sure. Thanks!
