Gobble Up Granola Snacks

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2013
I'm giving this recipe a 5 star, not that I followed it completely but it was very good with the changes I did and thats only because I made this recipe with my cooking class of 10 small children at March Break Camp and its a peanut free environment. So with that in mind I couldn't use the peanut butter so I use MOLASSAS (same measurements). The kids also wanted to add chocolate chips and mini marshmellows so because the mixture was sticky enough, we just added them on top then pressed down on all of it in the pan...worked out great! OMG...THE LITTLE MUNCHKINS LOVED THEM! Next time I'll make them at home using the peanut butter.

Garden Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
I'm giving this recipe a 5 star rating as it sounds great. I'm quite surprised by reading many other reviews by modifying the recipe but did come across one review where it basically said there was and is no need to change it up and this recipe has a purpose of having it the way it is. I will make this recipe tomorrow morning and will rate it once tasted. Thanks for this recipe Charlotte! UPDATE: GOOD SUNDAY MORNING...I JUST FINISHED MAKING THIS RECIPE AND FOLLOWED IT EXACTLY. THE AROMA REMINDED ME OF CAMPBELLS TOMATO SOUP. WHEN ALL WAS DONE, I HAD TO TASTE IT AND "WOW"!!! VERY GOOD. IF I COULD, I WOULD NOW GIVE THIS RECIPE A 10 STAR RATING. I WILL MAKE THIS RECIPE AGAIN AND AGAIN...I HAVE A GARDEN FULL OF TOMATOES SO NOW I KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THE EXTRA AND WILL FREEZE THE SOUP FOR THE WINTER MONTHS TO COME. THANKS AGAIN CHARLOTTE!!!

Apple Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2012
this was very good and quick. a little trick to keep the apple slices from going brown is dipping them in a bowl of sprite pop. the lemon/lime in the pop keeps them from spoiling rather than using lemon juice which can leave a little bitter taste. the sprite works great on banana slices as well. I use this trick at camp and it works wonders!

Tuna Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2012
I used this recipe as a guideline only as I did have my mother-in-laws' recipe so I came up with my own version. I sauted 1 chopped onion, 1/2 green pepper & 1/2 red bell pepper & 1 cup sliced mushrooms in 1 tbsp butter...put aside. Then made a rue (1/2 cup butter & 1/2 cup flour) added 1 tsp salt & pepper to taste. Cook the egg noodles then combined them with sauted onions/peppers/mushrooms, 1 cup frozen peas, 3 cans drained flaked tuna. Mix well, heat and serve. I was going to make a crumb crust on top using ritz crackers & melted butter suggested by another reviewer but didn't have the ritz crackers...sounds good though. Next time I will make Florences' recipe as she has it...but this time round my husband wanted his moms dish for his home birthday dinner but I couldn't help but add my own touch. That and I didn't have all the ingredients listed here. I'm giving this recipe a 4 star up until I actually try it then will change my rating if the families' all thumbs up with it. It does sound pretty good!

Old Fashioned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
This recipe was pretty good. I added garlic in with the potato's while cooking. I used green onion, dijon mustard, a bit more garlic (not garlic salt) when mixing everything together and chopped 2 pears in it as well and omitted the celery salt. TASTES GREAT! Good idea with the relish, I would have never thought of adding that to it.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
This is always a good quick recipe to do for Valentines. I did this for a dinner party we went to last night but didn't add the shortening which I thought was even better. Once the strawberries were dipped, I sprinkled chopped pecans on some, red & white candy sprinkles on others and some left plain. I also dipped banana pieces in the melted chocolate then drizzled peanut butter on each one. A HUGE HIT! Mind you, when I make my rumballs I do add veggie oil to thin out the chocolate.

Stuffed Strawberries

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
This recipe was a huge hit. I changed things up a little by cutting the stems off and piped the filling through the tops then drizzled chocolate on each strawberry. VERY, VERY, VERY GOOD!

Thirty Day Friendship Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2008
My review is part 1 of 2. I'm a little concerned right now. I started with the 3 week process of making the "starter juice" and that was ok. Now I'm on the 2nd 10 stretch by adding the sugar and pineapple. It states that the mixture should foam when stirring. It's not happening when I do the daily stirring. I hope this is going to be ok. I'll keep you posted when I bake the cakes. When completed, I'll rate this recipe again.

Banana Cream Pie III

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
I made this very simple recipe at my girlfriend's cottage and the men loved it. It was a little messy cutting into it and the banana's did turn brown some but all in all, it was very tastey. As previous reviewers mentioned, I will try dipping the banana's in lemon juice before hand and will also try using a graham cracker crust too. This recipe is a keeper with a minor tune up...Thanks!

Cowboy Cookies III

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
YUM, YUM, YUMMY! These cookies were a huge hit with my family. My 14 yr old daughter picked the recipe and made them herself a few days ago and then made them again a few days later. I have never seen cookies go that quick in my home...WOW. I did add an extra half cup of chocolate chips to the ingredients but thats only because I have chocolate lovers here and were extra gooey. This recipe will take place of my own recipe for now on. Thanks so much for sharing it with all of us.

Sweet and Sour Pork Patties

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
Ok Gang! I had a package of ground pork that I had to use and stumbled upon this recipe. I didn't have bread crumbs so I tried crushed Triscuits (deli-style rye) and added cumin & garlic to the other ingredients. I also left out the sauce as I didn't have any in my pantry and didn't want to make it from scratch but "WoW"! This was very tastey which left a little tingle on the tongue for a short moment...MMMMMMMMMMMM! I'll make this again but next time I'll make into meatballs and try the sauce with it.

Festive Onions

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
I've made this recipe twice and each time was a great hit. I followed the recipe to a "T" but added 2 more onions to it. The only thing I found that it isn't a good leftover addition to the next days meal. It just doesn't have the same flavour. This recipe is a huge keeper but will not keep leftovers.

Angie's Dad's Best Cabbage Coleslaw

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
This recipe is great but I have come to the conclussion to only use half a cabbage and not a full one. It makes lots and I have found out that not too many people like coleslaw and 2 people can only eat so much of it before turning into a cabbage. This is the second time making this recipe and have enjoyed it both times...will make again.

Creamy Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
OMG, this recipe was to die for and was a big hit at Thanksgiving. I made a batch of this recipe and a batch of the regular deviled eggs and guess which ones went first...next time I'm only making this recipe. 2 Thumbs Up!

Sweet Potato Oranges

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
I tried this recipe last year for Thanksgiving but due to a mishap with the oven we weren't able to try them but I was told they were good. I did make them again at this years Thanksgiving and had to triple the recipe. I only used 1 1/2 cups of both sugars and they still came out pretty sweet but again tastey. So, I would cut back more on both the white sugar, brown sugar and also the number of eggs when tripling this recipe.

Shrimp Avocado Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
I'm not too sure what to say about this recipe. The first time I made it...wow, our mouths watered after each bite (we used elbow macaroni). The second time was for our big feast on Thanksgiving Day and used the penne pasta but it didn't taste the same as the first time where we used elbow macaroni. Perhaps it didn't turn out the same as we doubled the recipe...who knows. I will make this again but will stick with the elbow macaroni.

Shredded Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
We followed this recipe but wasn't too impressed with it. It sounded better than what it tasted. It was ok but not sure if I would make it again. Sorry

Spicy Cranberry Chutney

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
This recipe was awesome and was a hit at our Thanksgiving Dinner we had on Saturday. It was the first time I ever used fresh cranberries and won't be the last. The combination of apple, cranberry & ginger (along with the balance of ingredients) were well suited. I have already planned making this again to be included in my gift baskets to each of my family members.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2006
WoW! Something so simple & tasting really good. I just made this and had to sample it when it came out of the oven (hot but yummy) and it's everything you would have in your pantry. I used to have this when I was a kid growing up and boy does it bring back some fond memories. I will definately make this again & again. Thanks!!

Baked Alaska

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2005
This recipe was great but was a little confused when it came to preparing the cake. This recipe called for 1 egg along with the almond extract but if you prepare the cake mix by the directions on the box it calls for 3 eggs so I went by the box directions and it turned out really good. Everyone was amazed that the Baked Alaska didn't melt and was very tasty. We used orange/pineapple ice cream which was very yummy! Thanks
