Banana Chocolate Chip Dessert

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
I made this after Thanksgiving...Looking for something that wasn't PIE & on the lighter side. This was perfect! I used whole wheat, substituted 1 T ground flaxseed & 3 T water for the egg, halved both the sugars & used applesauce instead of butter. It was AMAZING! I took them to a family gathering & they completely disappeared. Thanks for the great recipe.

Zippy Summer Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2012
This was so yummy! I omitted the paprika because I didn't have any. Oops. I also used garlic powder too. I served it with sautéed zucchini, onion & yellow squash over angel hair pasta. Was even great chilled the next day.

Cranberry Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
This cookie is delicious & very pretty. The only thing I changed was I added a splash of almond extract to the batter & after tasting the end result, I think the orange zest (which I accidentally added 1tsp) over powered it. I used a big cookie scoop, probably 1/4 cup & cooked for 16 mins. Perfect! It made 21 cookies. Perfect for the holidays. Thank you!

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
This is seriously delicious! I did make some adjustments...I added a splash of almond extract to the batter & then baked in a bundt pan. I then made an amaretto glaze. Hello! Delicious. When you're done baking, poke holes in the bottom of the cake with a toothpick. Boil 1/2 cup of amaretto for 1 min. (if you want it kid friendly) Otherwise, just combined 1/2 cup amaretto with 1 cup powdered sugar, another splash of almond extract & 3 T milk. Whisk it together & then strain the any sugar chunks. Poor half of it on the cake. Let it sit for 20 mins, dump the cake out, poke holes on the top & then poor the rest of the glaze over the cake/bread. It's sooooo yummy & can certainly be served as a desert.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
This cooked up quite nice. The chicken just fell apart & the sauce was really good. I will definately make again as the fam gave 2 thumbs up.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2008
This was super good. Moist, just the way it should be! I didn't have enough bananas for 2 1/3 cups, so I did as another reviewer & added applesauce for the remaining. I made a loaf with chocolate chips & another loaf with cinnamon-sugar sprinkled on the top. Both turned very yummy.

Buttermilk Syrup

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2007
After sampling a buttermilk syrup at a local farmer's market, I thought I'd try and track down a recipe I could make at home. I am soooo happy I found this recipe. It's very similar and doesn't cost nearly as much to make as they were charging at the market ($7 for a little tub!) I am going to make & bottle this up for my neighbor's for Christmas present, along with pancake mix. Thank you so much for the fabulous recipe!!!----2nd Review: K, I made this a 2nd time & purposely omitted the baking soda. It's sooo much better. It doesn't have a bitter, baking soda taste like the first batch & it's a pretty, white color. It does have to cook a little longer & thickens up upon sitting on a heating pad off the stove. I like it even better the 2nd way.

Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2007
I am rating this based upon how it tasted before I doctor'd it up. I did the following: 1) used tomato paste instead of sauce 2) no parsley 3) 1 tsp chicken boullion granules 4) 1 T cocoa powder 5) 1 T brown sugar 6) 1/4 t cinnamon. When it was all said and done, my husband claimed it was the best sauce he's had & I myself would rate it a 5 star. Thanks for the good base to build upon!

Cranberry Salsa

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
I've made this recipe, but decreased the sugar to 1/2, 1 lime & 2 jalepenos. Soooo yummy. The best thing you can do though, is dump the salsa over a cube of cream cheese. It's so pretty too. Serve with tortillas chips and/or crackers.

No Time to Cook Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
I am rating this as such because my husband asked me not to make it again. It's okay, but it's nothing special.

Cranberry Chicken I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
I needed a recipe for a snowy, fall day & this recipe was perfect! The chicken was so moist & flavorful with plenty of sauce to spoon over the top. If you have members of your family who don't care of cranberries, but you do, make this! You wouldn't even know that the recipe was titled cranberry chicken if you saw it & the taste is so dynamic that you can't really pin-point what's in it. Only use 1 packet of the onion soup mix. That is plenty & it won't over power like other reviewers have complained about.

Old Fashioned Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
I think this was one of the best desserts I've ever had. Seriously, and I make a lot of good desserts. I used small gala apples & store bought, pillsbury pie dough. I just cut each pie crust into 6 strips, wrapping 2 strips up & around opposite of each other on each apple. It worked out great. I think I'm going to make this a lot now. My family couldn't believe how good these were. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2007
This was really good. I did make a change & that was I used regular milk and then added about 1 tsp of coconut extract. The flavor was great that way. I also recommend a tsp or so of salt & next time I won't add tomatoes or at least a full can. That many tomatoes was too much and it made the curry more orange than the traditional yellow color.

Zucchini Coconut Loaf

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
Wow, this is super yummy. I loved the coconut idea, but thought my fam would not go for the currants & walnuts. As another reviewer did, I subsituted chocolate chips for the currants. I took the walnuts out all together. I made the recipe slightly healthier by using egg beaters & replaced half of the oil with applesauce. I doubled the batch and used 1 packed cup of brown sugar and a half cup of white sugar...So, I probably cut out a half cup and it turned out sweet as can be. This recipe was so moist and delicious. I will surely make often. Thanks!

Chocolate Chip Orange Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2007
Holly moley! My sister-in-law made this and it is the best. It smells sooo good and even better is its taste. She made it with the orange glaze and didn't add as many chocolate chips. It was perfect & now I'll be making it. :-)

The Best Meatballs

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2007
These are super. I did make some changes...I cut the recipe in half and just used 1 lb ground beef. I didn't use french bread, but used 1/4 cup of Italian bread crumbs. I cut the water down to 1/2 cup instead of 3/4. Oh, I didn't have fresh romano cheese, so I used the dried Parmesan/Romano blend and I only used 1/4 cup. I didn't have fresh parsley either, so I used fresh basil. Honestly, I kind of made my own meatball, but they were super good. Thanks for the base!

Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
These are way good and the calories show it! I rolled my first batch into 1 inch balls, but realized if I kept that up, I'd be making a lot more than the recipes says. So, I made the 2nd batch of balls a little bigger. I do like the smaller balls though. They are more in porportion.

Cola Pot Roast I

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2006
Mmmmmm. Today will be my 3rd time making this within a month! My only suggestion is to do it in the crockpot. It's sooo much better that way. I've done it both that way and in the oven. Also, I've subsituted the onion for dried and the celery for celery salt (I just used celery salt instead of regular salt.) It's a must try!
