Grandma's Cherry Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
Easiest salad I have ever made! It is always a hit at potluck dinners as well. I now keep the ingredients on hand for a fast dessert. Sometimes I will use one larger can of cherry pie filling (or one with more cherries) with 2 cans of fruit cocktail.

Heather's Cilantro, Black Bean, and Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
Easy and inexpensive. I took this to a potluck and several people asked for the recipe. I have also made it without avocado (when I couldn't find good fresh ones) and it still tastes delicious. Substituting lemon juice for lime juice gives a different, yet still good flavor as well.

Hummus III

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
This has become a family standard. I may change it or adapt it at times for a new flavor or to use different ingredients I have on hand, but this is always the beginning.

New England Bean Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
We have never eaten this as a dip. My dad learned to make this from his dad who learned to make in WW2. We have always eaten it as a bean salad side dish. To make it more filling, diced boiled egg has been added at times. We have also done this with canned pinto beans for a slightly different color and flavor. And we have doubled the recipe with half kidney and half pinto beans. You may have to experiment with relish. The wrong kind can make this too salty or too sweet. I usually leave it out of mine.

Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
Authentic or not, it does taste like the Mexican restaurant near-by. My family likes te flavor so it has become a regularly used recipe. When I want it thicker I use tomato paste or puree instead of tomato sauce and will reduce the water by 1/2 cup or so. I also use home made salsa when possible. You may need to play around with spices to get your personal taste.

Extra Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2005
Wonderfully easy! Even my 5 yr old could help. I made this with 2 tsp cumin (we like the flavor), doubled the garlic, and added paprika and lemon juice as suggested by others. I liked it blander as written but my family liked it spicier. Wonderful flavor either way depending on your tates. I do recommend you taste it after mixing it as listed to see what you would like. Also, Add bean liquids carefully. One can I used had so many beans that it took all of the remaining liquid to get the consistency I wanted. The next can of the same brand had fewer beans I guess. I added all the liquid at once and the consistency was much thinner. Even better the next day after being refrigerated.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2005
I used less salt (table salt) and ground red pepper. Wonderful flavor. A definate keeper that pleased my picky family. It is good on chicken, beef, or venison. I also increased the recipe to keep the mix ready in a jar.

Pat's Baked Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2005
great flavor, easy to make. It does make a bunch but that is good for pot lucks or large gatherings. I froze leftovers and reheated later. They were still wonderful and my family enjoyed them just as much as the first time.

Quick Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2005
This had ok flavor but did not go over well at our home. Too much rice, too bland of flavor, and the texture all seemed mushy. Even when we put salsa on top and added a salad, we did not like this. Not something I will make again.

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2005
Almost identical to my oven lasagna recipe so I loved the flavor. Took some extra time for planning and browning the meat so not exactly a "throw it in and leave" recipe. Also works best in a long oval crock pot. When I made it in the tall round one, it took longer and made a too thick lasagna that did not come out in clean cuts for picture perfect squares.

Applesauce Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2005
My husband and 5 yr old son LOVE this barbeque sauce! It is the first bbq sauce I have made or bought they would eat. It is sweet, but that is alright by us. I did reduce the amount of brown sugar by 1/2 cup (but only because I ran out) and used all natural unsweetened applesauce because that is all I buy. After making it, I put it in the frig overnight then added to shredded pork in the crock pot. The smell was wonderful, great smooth texture, and family pleasing taste. Add easy to prepare and this is a winner for me.

Dog Treats II

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2005
I helped my 4 yr old make this for our friends dogs. We rolled it out and cut with cookie cutters. My son loved making it and our friends all asked for the recipe saying their dogs loved the treats!

Noodles Romanoff

Reviewed: May 14, 2004
I used the 2/3 cup sour cream as mentioned earlier and used fresh garden green onions instead of chives. This was easy, fast, and my family loved it. We ate it as a compliment to a veggie meal that included corn, green beans, and carrots. I will be making it again.

Spicy Mexican Torte

Reviewed: May 12, 2004
My very picky husband loved this! Since he does not like red peppers, I instead did that layer with fat free refried black beans and thin slices of tomato. Wonderful in outr opinion. When my brother made this the next time, he added jalapenos instead of the green chilies to make it hotter.
