Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
I thought it was okay, but nothing spectacular. I tasted it after it was mixed and it was way too warm, so I added 2 ice cubes and blended them in. Maybe using a frozen banana would help with the temperature.

Corn Chowder I

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2010
I really liked this, my husband, not so much. I made a few small changes. I did half milk and half chicken stock, I used turkey bacon, I did one of the cans of corn as regular instead of creamed and instead of mashing half the potatoes, I just did a really rough mash with a hand masher. My husband doesn't love bacon, so I kept it out and just added it back in when I served mine. I didn't use any cheese. I also wasn't sure that it was thick enough, so I mixed a few teaspoons of flour in with some soup and mixed it in my little mixer. In retrospect, I probably didn't need to do that, but I do like my chowder to be thick. I might up the potatoes a little next time, too. I would definitely pass this recipe along to friends. I made half a batch and we had two big bowls and there are probably 4 more big bowls of leftovers. I'm pretty excited to have the leftovers tomorrow.

Seafood Salad III

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
I used half the mayo with a whole package of imitation crab that I shredded and it was still too much mayo. Disappointing.

Plain Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
I used chicken broth instead of water and just one can of evaporated milk. I sprinkled some cheddar cheese on top when it was served. I would make it again.

Cheesy Potato and Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
This was very good and is different from other potato soup recipes that I have tried. I used frozen corn, which I put in with the potatoes (I'm not a big fan of canned corn).

Crunchy Oven Fried Tilapia

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
This was a good starter recipe for me. I didn't use the eggs, I just sprayed each side with butter spray and sprinkled on the bread crumbs. I put a little cajun seasoning on the bread crumbs so it had more flavor. I thought it was excellent. Nice and moist. I will definitely be making this again.

Famous Japanese Restaurant-Style Salad Dressing

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
This is very close to the dressing at my favorite hibachi restaurant. The only change that I made was that I added 2 tablespoons of Miracle Whip so that it was a little creamier. I also will probably use a little less vinegar next time, maybe 1/4 cup instead.

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: May 5, 2008
I have made these twice using Oreos. I made them most recently using Nutter Butters instead. I never thought they could be better than with Oreos, but I definitely like them better with the Nutter Butters. I used 30 cookies, but it seemed a little dry, so I might use fewer next time. I did use a little of the crumbled cookies on top and I think it makes them look nice.

French Toast I

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2005
Just like my Mom used to make. I cooked on the same heat that I use for pancakes and that was a little too low (it wasn't getting browned at all). I would cook on at least medium heat next time. Great easy recipe.

Chicken Paprikash I

Reviewed: May 23, 2005
I used about 1-1/2 tablespoons of paprika. About 1/2 tablespoon sweet and 1 tablespoon hot. It made for a very nice and spicy sauce. I also used a slotted spoon to take the chicken out of the skillet and put into a bowl with the sour cream so that the sauce would be a little thicker. I used pieces of chicken breast that were cut small, so I cooked it for a little less time. Yummy. We will definitely have this again.

Apple Delight

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2004
I made the recipe exactly as written. It was impossible to stir the cake mix and butter after it was on the apples. I ended up having to put about twice as much butter on to cover all the mix. I thought the flavor was too sweet and it could have used some spices. I would not recommend this recipe.

Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2004
This makes delicious kettle corn. I tried substituting brown sugar for the caramel corn flavor and I didn't like it at all. Make sure you don't have the heat too high when you are cooking the popcorn or you will end up with a big, stick, burned lump in the bottom of the pan.

Dill Cucumber Dip

Reviewed: May 23, 2004
I reduced the mayo by 1/2 and used Miracle Whip in place of the mayo. I also doubled the hot sauce and used the Georgia Peach and Vidalia Onion hot sauce that I get from Peppers (an absolutely must-have). Next time I would probably shred the cucumber. This is definitely a great summertime dip for parties.

Shredded Potato Quiche

Reviewed: May 2, 2004
I have made this recipe several times with some changes. I shred potatoes instead of using frozen. After browning the potatoes in the oven, I layer some shredded cheese and sliced ham to keep the egg from baking through the potatoes. I also put the cheese on top instead of mixing with the egg.

American Frittata

Reviewed: May 2, 2004
I like the idea of the cast iron skillet, but the recipe was very bland. I used some hot sauce to spice it up after it cooked. I also used about 1/2 of the potatoes called for in the recipe.

Salmon Cakes II

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2004
I substituted crushed Ritz crackers for the bread crumbs and also used them on the outside in place of the flour. I added 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice to the salmon mixture. On the advice of previous posts, I baked for about 20 minutes at 375. I would recommend using cooking spray if you bake them, otherwise you won't get to eat the bottom (voice of experience).
