Confetti Bean Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2005
Tastes really good- nice change from the usual salad. Makes ALOT! I also added some feta cheese on top right before serving and used raspberry vinegarette dressing to cut down on the tart-ness.

Good salad. I added some raspberry vinegarette to cut down on the tanginess. Great with some feta cheese on top.

Ham with Pineapple

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2005
Delicious. I made this for Easter dinner with a few modifications: used ground cloves and pineapple chunks instead. I threw it all in the crockpot- first hour on high and then about 5 hours on low. Came out so juicy and tender.

Sweet and Sour Smoked Sausage

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2005
Very tasty, definite favorite at our house. Sometimes I use turkey sausage. I usually add more sweet and sour than the recipe calls for.

Peking Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2005
Amazing! My husband loved it so much that he even suggested I make this dish when his mother comes to visit! I used only about 1/4 cup soy sauce so it wouldn't be too salty and cooked it in the oven for 40 minutes at 350 degrees. I served the chops on a bed of brown rice with a salad. Delicious!

Amazing Brown Rice Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2005
It was ok. I added some chopped carrots to the mix. Definitely must eat right away-- not very good as left overs because the rice seems to get mushy after a day. Will make again.

Pepper Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2005
Too sour! The peppers shrunk down and became mushy and the lemon juice dressing was almost too sour to eat. Might be good with a different dressing, maybe italian or balsamic vinegarette.

Italian Stuffed Zucchini

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2005
I chopped up the zucchini into big chunks and also added a little oregano in addition to the other ingredients. I baked it for 20-30 minutes. It's now one of our favorites. Another variation we like-- add extra spaghetti sauce and serve over pasta.

Cider Vinegar Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2005
I didn't have garlic salt so I used some celery salt and garlic powder. I also added some red pepper flakes because we like spicy food and added a bit of water to cut down on the tang of the vinegar. Overall, I think it's a great recipe for chicken...not your everyday flavor!

Balsamic Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2005
This was a good variation to steamed carrots. I boiled them for about 2 minutes first and then followed the recipe. I used a pepper balsamic vinegar which gave it a subtle kick. I also added a squirt of maple syrup. Nice change for carrots, will make again.

Seasoned Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2005
Instead of soy sauce I used Worcestershire and only half of the onion soup that was called for. They came out really good!

Cranberry Sauce II

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2005
This was a bit sweet for our taste. Next time I will cut back on the sugar. Mine also came out a bit runny-- not sure if it will thicken up in the frig (although it's been in there 24 hours now). I may add less water, too. I think with these revisions it will be great.

Holiday Snickerdoodles (Cookie Mix)

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2005
I followed the recipe exactly and they were really good. I baked mine longer than the recipe said. They came out great and were easy to make!

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2005
My hubby loved them! I used 1 tbsp of lemon juice and some lemon zest instead of lemon extract. They were really moist and delicious. UPDATE: I made these again and refrigerated the dough for about 24 hours before I made the cookies. The dough was easier to handle after being in the frig- not as sticky. They also came out even better than the first time I made them...a bit of crispiness on the bottom and around the sides and soft inside. The powdered sugar seemed to adhere better, too. Putting the dough in the frig was definitely a good idea. These are our favorite!

Lemon Pepper Shrimp with Mustard

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2006
We didn't really enjoy this. I used some lemon pepper marinade and I think that was the mistake. There was also hardly any sauce and I found it to be pretty bland. It was just ok.

Cereal Yogurt Bars

Reviewed: May 21, 2006
I didn't like the texture. The flavor was ok, but couldn't eat the whole thing because of the texture.

Neat Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: May 21, 2006
This turned out great. I didn't have tomato soup so I used tomato sauce. I also used ground turkey and threw in some shredded carrots. Definitely better than that canned stuff and I always have these ingredients on hand.

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: May 21, 2006
Great! A good & different side dish. I used beef broth becuase I was serving it with meatloaf and I added some chopped garlic and dried onion while I sauteed the orzo. I didn't have fresh basil so I used dry. I saved about 2 tbsp of the broth and added it to the orzo just before serving so it wouldn't be dry as others had mentioned. I will definitley be making this again.

Yum-Yum Corn

Reviewed: May 21, 2006
I gave this a 3 because my husband liked it. I thought it was ok. I followed the recipe as listed and cut back a bit on the sugar. The cream cheese- butter mixture came out "bumpy" not creamy. Maybe it's because I used the whipped cream cheese. I'm not sure if I will make this again.....I'd probably opt for regular corn over this.
