5-Layer Mexican Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
very blah... I think it needs a sour cream/cream cheese/light taco seasoning mixture in place of the plain sour cream. the rest of the toppings were perfect, however. I especially like that it didn't include lettuce. I hate lettuce in a taco dip.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
Excellent! Easy to work with... My daughter asked for them for her school birthday treat. Definately use the shortening for a smoother consistancy and a shinier presentation. I tried them with and without. It was easier to work with when shortening was used as well.

Sweet 'N' Tangy Freezer Pickles

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2010
This recipe has been used in my family for years. Love it! To make it especially pretty, use red bell pepper instead of green.

Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2011
Wow, is this sauce good. I didn't realize the recipe made so much. I guess I will freeze the rest. I didn't add liquid smoke as our family hates that "fake" taste. Other than that I followed the recipe to a T and we all loved it.

Spanakopita (Greek Spinach Pie)

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
I've been making this for years and I keep forgetting to rate it. I usually don't change up a recipe in a review, but after making it for so long, I thought that I would tell people that I double the phyllo, use frozen spinach (about 5 boxes), leave out the parsley, skip the green onion, use more feta, and use cottage cheese in place of ricotta. I usually put a layer of phyllo in between the spinach mixture. I also add a tad of nutmeg and sometimes dill. This recipe is very versatile and can be adjusted to so many tastes. Thank you so much to SILVERWOLF for submitting a recipe our family has enjoyed for a long time.

Frank's® Red Hot® Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
Love this recipe! It was the first to go at our superbowl party. Everyone wanted more... I have made this before with rotisserie chicken and I don't like it as much because it doesn't get in tiny enough shreds as the canned and it's a little dry. I normally HATE canned chicken but in this case I feel it works best.

Marinated Mushrooms with Red Bell Peppers

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
I didn't think the water was necessary. It lacked a little flavor.

Cabbage and Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
I made this to go with my St. Patty's Day Corned Beef. I cooked the dumplings in the juice of the corned beef that cooked in the crockpot all day. Delish!

Hot 'n' Spicy Buffalo Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
I really loved the idea of this recipe, but I felt the chicken shouldn't have been cooked in the hot sauce and butter. I think that just tossing it with the sauce after it cooked might have coated it better. I also added a hard boiled egg and cherry tomatoes.

Orange Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
Yum! A new way for my kids to eat their veggies! Served it with a spinach salad with fresh raspberries and blueberries, and sunflower seeds. The adults enjoyed feta too. I did add a tiny bit of oil to make it stick, and sprinkled some ginger too. I used a freshly squeezed orange for the juice. Thank you!

Crustless Zucchini Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2011
This was so good! I sauted the onions along with a couple garlic cloves first. Instead of parsley I used a little basil, and I added just a tiny bit of prepared horseradish. Loved it!

Crusty French Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
This was the best bread that I have ever made. I have been trying to make a bread like this for about five years. I finally found the texture that my family has been looking for. I don't necessarily think I want this for a "french bread", but the texture was perfect for a sandwich, not only the day I made it, but in the following days. The other recipes I have made from this site are really good, but they crumble and are unuseable the next day for a hearty sandwich. This recipe stays really soft on the inside, and does not fall apart like other breads. I doubled the recipe, and put both loaves on a baking sheet. Thank you so much!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
Oh my was this good. I didn't have ham, so I cooked up some bacon. I didn't add the cooked bacon with the potato/onion/celery pot in the beginning, but half way through cooking, as I didn't want it to get too mushy. I melted the butter in the same pan that I cooked the bacon in. I did drain most of the grease. The flour, butter, milk mixture was really rich with the small amount of bacon flavor from the pan. My husband can't stop raving about this soup.

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2011
Really, really good! I suggest adding frozen peas at the end. I was pleasantly surprised at how much it tasted like our favorite restaurant because the ingredients were so basic. Thank you!

Oatmeal Pancakes II

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
I had high hopes for this recipe, but it did not impress me or my family at all. The batter seemed way too thin, which I'm guessing is the reason why it wasn't a fluffy pancake. It was also way too salty. In my opinion the baking soda was not necessary.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
Amazing! The dry consistancy threw me off too, but if you keep mixing it, the moisture of the zucchini will come out to make it more batter-like. I imagine just leaving it dry would be fine too, as the moisture will come out in the baking process. I'm excited because I can make these in the winter with all the shredded zucchini I froze and I most likely won't have to drain it too much.

Zucchini Nut Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2011
I thought these were fabulous. I used allspice instead of cloves and cut the amount in half. I also used crushed peanuts instead of walnuts and left out the raisins. It reminds me of windmill cookies I had when I was younger.

Sweet and Tangy Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2012
Love it! I added some sharp grated cheddar and used halved red grapes because I didn't have raisins. I think next time I will throw in some sunflower seeds.

Thai Chicken Spring Rolls

Reviewed: May 12, 2012
This is a great recipe. I personally don't like watercress in it, but this recipe is so versatile to suit different tastes. I would strongly recommend using chicken thighs, however. They should be cut very fine. I also like to sprinkle some crushed peanuts in each one. Sometimes I put some fresh cucumber in it too.

Surprise Apple Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2012
I add vanilla pudding to the cool whip - I think it's necessary. It is a crowd pleaser, for sure. It always gets lots of compliments!
