Refreshing Avocado, Tomato, and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2014
I'm glad I made this and avoided the instinct to not try it just because of the tomatoes. It definitely all works well together! I did not add the fresh garlic or olive oil and probably wouldn't next time I make this either. Just personal preference.

Jalapeno Popper Dip with Bacon

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2014
I wish I had corn in the house when I made this recipe. I think with the corn it would be perfect. Unfortunately, I had none. I did mix in some sweet/hot pepper Jelly rather than more mayo - 1/4 cup wasn't enough to loosen it up enough for me and rather than add more fat, I opted for the sweet heat of the jelly. I didn't have 8 jalapenos on hand either, I had half that amount. I think it was perfect with just 4, with 8 it would have had too much pepper to cheesy goodness ratio.

Low Carb Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2014
subbed sour cream for heavy cream, added some fresh chopped dill, and used roasted pine nuts in place of almonds. A great base to adust to your flavoring and needs!

Blackberry Jam Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2014
We aren't huge on cake eating here so I like to take cake recipes and make cupcakes - we like them much better! That was what I did to this recipe. I did cut the recipe in half and made a few changes. It sounds like from the reviews this recipe is pretty good to start so because I did make it with some changes I am giving it a rating of 4. I reduced the amount of allspice and cloves. The amount just seemed too much for our preference. I also made my own buttermilk with sour cream, apple cider vinegar and a little bit of almond milk. To frost I made a blackberry buttercream by adding blackberry jam to the buttercream I was making. Turned out pretty good - and I will definitely be sharing at the office tomorrow!

Brazilian Lemonade

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2014
I can't imagine this recipe without the rum and coconut water. ;) I thought that rum would be a good addition to this drink, then I saw that Ms Powers had the same idea - but she also used coconut water! I increased the lime to 3 instead of 2. Grumpy and I both loved the drink. I'm sure the original is good but I think it is an excellent base for an adult beverage. I will definitely be keeping this drink in my files for future reference!

Amazing Muffin Cups

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2014
If the hash browns have not started to crisp at the bottom before putting the egg mixture in, I suggest letting it have a longer baking time. I altered the recipe to fit ingredients I had here, made my own hashbrowns by parboiling the potatoes then shredding them. I added some chili powder and cumin the mixture since I didn't have Mexican flavored cheese. No peppers except jalapeno so I used about 1 tablespoon of that and chopped tomato and tomatillo to stir in. I also reduced the sausage to about half. This is a great base recipe. You can do so many different flavors. It gets 5 stars for that purpose alone! 4/13/14 - I made these again today and left the Mexican flavors out. Sharp Cheddar, sauteed mushrooms and red peppers and chives for flavor. AMAZING is the word. :)

Pork Carnitas with Cilantro Tomatillo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2014
This is a great recipe. I didn't use pork because we very rarely eat anything pork in our home unless it's bacon. I used boneless skinless chicken thighs. Since I had the corn oil that Mazola sent, I did use their oil. However, I used about a teaspoon of Adobo along with the spices and added some cumin. Squeezed some lime juice in the salsa and ate some sliced avocado - Oh, and I did use flour tortillas (homemade ones!) instead of corn since we are not fans of corn tortillas here (unless they are fried!). I would definitely make this again.

No Sugar Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
I first had these cookies when our intern made them and brought them into the office. I loved them! After baking them myself, I realize it reminds me a little bit of baked oatmeal, but they are really good when your watching your calorie/carb/sugar intake. I didn't use raisins, instead I used dark chocolate chips and I didn't have applesauce but I did have apple butter that my mom had made so I went with that. Great recipe for those cravings and you aren't killing your diet!

Buttermilk King Cake with Cream Cheese Filling

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2014
skipped cream cheese and went with almond filling. I didn't have buttermilk so I used almond milk with a teaspoon of vinegar..I would definitely go with buttermilk next time. I'm sure its a 5 star recipe. I think I just overbaked it a little.

Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2014
Added raisins, cut the oil to 1 cup and subbed 1/2 cup applesauce for the rest of the oil to reduce fat and since I had 4 cups of shredded carrots, went with it. Turned out awesome.

Easy Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2014
only differences: almond milk since I never have cow's milk in my house and I had to use about 1/3 cup of flour to thicken it to the right consistency. I made homemade biscuits rather than buying the canned.

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2014
I had to adapt this to fit what ingredients I did have in my kitchen. I used regular cream of mushroom soup, 1/2 cup of fat free italian dressing, plain (1/3 less fat) cream cheese - but I had chives so I chopped some up and added them. I went with only 2 tablespoons of butter to reduce fat more and stuck with the wine. I loved it, Grumpy thought it needed stronger flavor (so next time I will make sure to have the seasoning packet mix.) I also used chicken tenders and sauteed fresh mushrooms to add more mushroom to the mix.

Peanut Butter Cookies IX

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
these are excellent. I used all white flour since I had no whole wheat and I did cut the sugar to 1/2 cup each. I followed Grannyloohoo's suggestion of the almond extract and instead of chocolate used peanut butter. I was in a really peanut buttery mood today. :) Great base recipe. I'm sure that made as written they are fab also!

RITZ Push-Cart Hot Dog Bites

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2014
Yummy! Loved the onions and the heat was right up my alley. I even added some sliced jalapeno piece on top to give the bite a little color. I could eat a lot of these. I skipped the tomato paste just because Grumpy doesn't like it. For this reason my topping was just a little liquidy, but that was fine, I just strained the oinons out with a fork to top the cracker so they didn't get soggy.

RITZ White Pizza Meatball Dip, created by Lombardi's Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2014
I enjoyed the recipe enough to make it again, but personally, I could go without the meatballs in it. I did add fresh minced garlic to the mix as well as used fresh oregano over dried. I really loved the dip before the meatballs. Would definitely make it again.

RITZ Fried Ravioli

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2014
I love the light crispy crust this gave the ravioli. My only mistake was choosing a ravioli that we don't normally eat and I ended up not liking the filling (no fault of this recipe!). I will make this again using our favorite ravioli!

RITZ Spicy Asian Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2014
Oh a DEFINITE keeper! I made these for dinner and since it was just two of us I went with chicken legs. I skipped the frying because the chicken legs were pretty big in my opinion to do that - but followed the recipe to a T and instead, baked at 375 degrees until done (about 35-40 minutes). Before baking I did spray with some cooking spray. If I were to make the wings themselves I would follow the recipe. However, the legs were crispy skin (just look at the photo!) and man, the skin, that was almost the best part of the recipe (with the sauce of course!)

Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2014
I used meyer lemons which gave it less of a tang. I like it but prefer the tang. Gave it 5 stars because with regular lemons it would be that for me! Turned out great. If your still having runny curd after 20 minutes of stirring your heat may not be high enough. It should thicken with the eggs.

Four-Cheese Italian with Garlic Basil Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2013
What I loved the most about this was the Campanelle Pasta I used. :)The little horns filled up with the peas an sauce. As far as flavor goes, I didn't feel it had much flavor at all. Next time I would try to do something else to enhance the flavor of the broth because the sausage just doesn't carry it. I used the 3 cheese red pepper sausage for this particular recipe. After tasting the sauce I added some shredded asiago to the sauce along with more pepper and salt, but it didn't do anything for it. Grumpy's not here to give his opinion. He'll probably come home, warm it up, and say it was good, I should make it again. ;) You never know! I think I just have a really developed palate and need more flavor in my food. All in all it is a good base recipe, but I would probably only make it again if I had nothing else on hand to do quickly.

Touchdown Italian Sausage Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2013
We liked this but I did make changes to it by adding chili and cumin powder. I also used the Jalapeno Cheese Sausage Links by Johnsonville (which are fabulous by the way!). I also reduced the amount of tomatoes by 1 can and it still seemed like a lot of diced tomatoes. Iused kidney beans instead of the white bean but only because I didn't have any. I think the Sherry is what made this stand out flavor wise and will make sure to try this again with more modifications - only still will use the Sherry! Grumpy said it was better the second day as he had the leftovers for lunch.
