Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2014
I made this the other night and everyone loved it. The only thing I did differently was to put about double the artichokes in it, thanks to a very large jar from Costco. I served it with crackers, tortilla chips, and a boule of crusty bread--something for everbody. This was so easy and it really didn't need the sour cream or cream cheese I've seen in other recipes. I will definitely be making this again!

Caramelized Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2014
I wasn't too thrilled about the final outcome. I DID cut the sugar to about 1/3 cup as others did and the sweetness was fine. I think I would have liked a bit more peanut butter though because I couldn't tell it was there in the final product. The sauce did thicken up very nicely but the overall taste was just okay. I also added some red pepper flakes to add a little bit of heat. I made two different kinds of wings last night and we agreed we liked the other kind better.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2013
I also mashed my bananas (3 medium very ripe ones) as I didn't want to bite into a chunk of cooked banana. I also used about a cup of unchopped walnuts. The rest I did according to the recipe. It was nice and moist but I'm thinking I would have liked a bit of banana extract to make the banana flavor more pronounced. I'd make it again.

Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
I used a fully cooked ham for this. I mixed all the glaze ingredients with a little water to make a nice paste and slathered a little over half of it on the ham. I put about a cup and a half of water in the bottom of the pan, covered the pan with foil and put it in a 350 degree oven for one and a half hours, basting the ham twice. After that time, I took the foil off and spread the last of the glaze mix on the ham and cooked the whole thing for another half hour. It tasted great. The flavors weren't over the top. Instead, they complimented the taste of the ham. I know I'll definitely be making this again.

Slow Cooker Creamed Spinach

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
I had first tried this recipe years ago when I had seen it on a PBS fundraiser. I've since lost the recipe so I thought I'd try my luck on Allrecipes. Since this was it, I decided to make it for Christmas brunch. Like other reviewers, I also cut down on the cooking time. I did the one hour on high but I only did one and a half hours on low. Came out perfectly! For those who think it's too rich, I think when I had seen it on that program I got the impression that it was supposed to be a dip. It would be great for that but you have to make sure your spinach is really finely chopped. Thank you so much for the recipe. Now I won't have to wait so long until the next time I make it.

Santa Fe Bean and Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2012
This really is versatile. You can make it vegetarian by adding vegetable broth and omitting the chicken or you can make it a stew by adding less broth. You can even add or omit the beans you do or do not like. From start (opening up the cans) to finish (eating) it takes 10 minutes.

Mexican Style Sausage Hash

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2012
I love this for a weekend breakfast because it has what I consider the necessary breakfast items: Eggs, Potatoes, and Sausage. The green chilies just add that something extra!

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
We made two flavors of these for Christmas this year: lemon cake with lemon frosting and white cake with white frosting with almond extract. We had a small scoop and made approximately the amount specified in the recipe, however I felt that they were much too large. I would have preferred something that only took about two bites instead of the five or six that these had. I liked them well enough and they were easy to dip once they were refrigerated or frozen but if I make these again in the future, I will DEFINITELY be using a smaller scoop.

Easy Smoked Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
This was so easy and tasted very good. Due to time issues, I had to let this marinate for about 24 hours. I'm glad I did, as I think it drew out more moisture. I think the only thing I would do differently was to add a little bit more liquid smoke. This was good right out of the oven as well as cold.

Tomato Bacon Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2010
I didn't like the taste of this all that well. The only things I did differently were to chop up my tomatoes instead of slice them. I also put them in a strainer while the piecrust baked/cooled. Due to this and the baking, the tomato taste was really concentrated which meant it was pretty acidic. I wonder if I would like it with a couple of teaspoons of sugar or a thick white sauce thrown in. I do have to say that it was quite pretty, though

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
I also halved this and put it in a 9 x 9 pan. The only thing I did differently was to dip the apple wedges into the melted butter and then into the cinnamon sugar before rolling them up in the crescent dough. I mixed up what was left and poured that over the top. I have to say that these were wonderful. I'm having my sister over for dinner tomorrow night and I'm making these again! Very nice recipe.

Root Beer Float Cake II

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
I made cupcakes with this recipe and took it to a Father's Day cookout. After reading the reviews, I decided to add the rootbeer concentrate (all I could find at the store. Is it the same as extract?)to the batter. The long mixing time made these light and airy. I also made the Cool Whip/vanilla pudding frosting and added a little rootbeer concentrate to that too. Crushed rootbeer barrels on top were great, but don't add them too early before serving because they kind of melt in the topping. I was told that I had to make these again.

Vegetable Pizza II

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
This is a recipe I had tried before but couldn't find, so I was glad it was on this site. Along with some of the standard vegetables, I added chopped water chestnuts for the crunch and sliced black olives for the contrast. I sprinkled some shredded cheddar over the whole thing. I had a lot of cream cheese mixture left over too, but I decided to use that as a dip for another day. We had it for a small New Year's Eve get together and the hostess informed me that I was not going to get to take any of it home. Her husband just loved it.

Maple Syrup Pudding

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
I'm thinking that this should be called Maple Syrup BREAD Pudding so that everyone will stop being confused.

Summertime Tuna Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2008
My mother used to make a salad similar to this and I've been making it my entire adult life. Instead of the broccoli and carrots I add seeded chopped tomatoes. Also, I think it's important to seed the cucumbers. If you don't do this, leftovers could get really runny. Also, in reading the other reviews, I'm pretty sure the recipe was supposed to say 2 cups of uncooked pasta. It looks like one reviewer thought that was how much cooked pasta should be used.

Potato Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2007
THIS is the way I've had potato pancakes since I was a kid. In fact, I'd never had the uncooked shredded kind until I was an adult. I guess it was thanks to Mom's frugality. The way these are put together is a little thick for my taste. You can mix the cheese right in if you want and make them the thickness of regular pancakes. I like the fact that they have a higher amount of crispiness that way. I also like to mince up some onion into mine.
