Wilted Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2001
Great salad. Excellent flavor. I will make this again. The kids wanted to try it because my husband and I kept saying how good it was! Thanks for a restaurant-quality recipe!

Quick and Spicy Fish Fillets

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2001
My husband really liked this but the kids weren't too wild about the spicy part but next time I will make some peices without the pepper just for them. I liked the idea of crunchy fillets without frying. All in all an easy family pleaser

Green Bean Okazu

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2001
This was a tasty, easy meal. I didn't have access to fresh green beans, so I used canned and didn't cook it quite as long. I served over instant brown rice and my picky eaters lapped it all up! Due to the one pot prep and the addition of soy sauce, my husband thought he was getting Oriental, which pleased him as well. I will use this recipe often.

Christmas Cornflake Wreath Cookies

Reviewed: May 22, 2002
Instead of making individual cookies with this recipe, my grandma made one great big Christmas wreath on a pretty platter and we cut slices from it like a bundt cake.

Simple Savory Pork Roast

Reviewed: May 28, 2002
This is the only way I will cook a pork roast from now on! Excellent flavor and the pan drippings made fab gravy. I did not have fresh rosemary, but the dried worked fine. I tossed the roast in the fridge with the spices in the morning to let it all marry together until supper. It took about an hour and 15 minutes for the pop up timer on my pork roast to pop but it was still juicy. Great, simple recipe. Thanks!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2002
Great, moist brownies. Why use a box when it is so easy from this great scratch recipe? The frosting is good and adds a special touch but when I make them again, I prob will not frost them.

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2002
I followed everyones advice and used 2 smaller boxes of pudding one vanilla and one banana creme. This made an excellent tasting desert! The bananas did get brown after a few days in the fridge despite using Fruit Fresh and the cookies got really soft. Next time I make this, knowing it will sit in the fridge for a few days, I will skip the bananas and cookies and just make the pudding! Yum.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2002
I made this for my daughter's Halloween party and they were delicious! The parents couldn't stop eating them. I followed the directions of the person who suggested adding a sprinkle of sugar after baking. It was just right with the salt I had added previously! Excellent.

Broccoli With Lemon Almond Butter

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2005
This is a very good recipe. The combination on flavors is incredible. It even converted my two "green-beans-are-the only-green-veggie-I'll-eat" kids! I am impressed. Five stars plus. Broccoli is a Super Food Rx.

Easy Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2002
This is REALLY good pie! I am not crazy about graham cracker crust, so I make it with equally as easy Buttery Crunch Crust, also from this site.

Crust for Veggie Pot Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2003
I used this for turkey pot pie from this site and both recipes turned out wonderfully! Thanks for making my life easier. I was wondering which of the 43 pie crust recipes I was going to use until I found this one. Absolutely perfect in every way.

Turkey Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2003
The combination of spices is wonderful with turkey. It smells great baking. I used with crust recipe for vegetable pot pie (also from this site) and both turned out great. This would have been a really full pie dish so I put it in the size smaller than a 9x13 pan (rectangle) and it was just right.

Tim's Sausage Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2003
With the sausage I used, this was a great combo of flavors. It seemed a bit greasy, so I chilled it overnight then skimmed the fat off the top the next day. Next time we get italian sausage, we will get an extra couple pounds so we can make this stew!

Easy Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2003
Fab-u-lous! At first I thought there would be way too much crumbly stuff because it looks like a lot when you are adding it on top of the apples and water. But I went ahead and used the whole amount and boy am I glad! I wouldn't change a thing!

Very Easy Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2004
I wish I could give this salad more stars! Soooo easy and good. It kept for about 2 days in the fridge before the bananas turned brown. I will make again and again.

Cran-Apple Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2004
I get this magazine and made this salad. It is very easy and good and looked festive. I used the candy coated walnuts and added them just before serving. My parents loved it. I did too. The kids and husband weren't crazy about it but they don't branch out much from the ordinary. I think I will make this for our church's pot-luck Thanksgiving feast.

Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2004
Really good recipe, easy too. I would have liked better with ho'made chocolate frosting instead of the Betty Crocker canned milk chocolate frosting I used. But no one else at the potluck complained. They were still raving about it the next day.

Bolognese Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2003
This is the ho'made spaghetti sauce I have been searching for! I love the idea of it having veggies in it. My kids lapped it up, never knowing that it was better for them than the average spaghetti.
