Strawberry Pretzel Squares

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2012
I LOOVE these bars! Which is strange because I normally HATE Jello. But the contrast between the salty pretzel crust and the creamy layer and then the sweetness of the strawberries is just perfect. Yum!

Salad Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2012
Simple to make but sloppy to eat, I agree. I usually leave off the chicken but add some shredded mozzarella for a meatless meal.

Cinnamon Streusel Orange Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2012
These were good! I added the zest of one large orange, which helped to highlight the flavor. Also, I used turbinado sugar in the cinnamon topping instead of white and it was a really nice touch!

Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2012
This was a good, meatless meal! Quick to put together and very satisfying, even the hubs liked it! I had to skip the tempeh because he wouldn't have touched it. Instead I added a can of drained corn and diced tomatoes with garlic and onion. This was a little soupy but that was probably from my changes. We'll be having this again, and I'll continue to tinker with it. Serve with light sour cream.

Peanut Butter and Cream Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
Easy and a real crowd-pleaser! I used a 9-inch cake pan, greased very well, and just ran a knife around the edges of the pan before inverting onto a serving plate - worked great! Didn't have chocolate shavings or peanut butter cups for a garnish, so I just drizzled with some Hershey's chocolate syrup. I ran a butter knife around the edges to keep them crisp. Yum!

Portabella Nirvana

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
This was just OK for us. We used Italian seasoned bread crumbs instead of crackers for the filling and that made it too salty.

Cheesy Sausage Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
Quick, tasty and simple! I used half the amount of pasta, skipped the oil and bell pepper and subbed diced tomatoes with garlic instead of the stewed with separate garlic. So good and so easy - thanks for this recipe!

Eggnog Quick Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
This was good but the eggnog taste wasn't very strong in the bread. I did use 1 1/3 cup eggnog and a small packet of instant vanilla pudding. I also topped with the eggnog frosting/glaze - we liked that. Not sure if I'll make again or not.

Eggnog Gingerbread Trifle

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
LOVED this! I made it for Christmas Day and those who liked it REALLY liked it. The eggnog is such a great creamy contrast to the spicy gingerbread. I didn't use the cranberries or cookie crumbs but I think next year I'll garnish with those Pepperidge Farm gingerbread men cookies on top. Thank you!

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
This was so simple and tasted very good. I halved the recipe and iced a 9x13 cake VERY GENEROUSLY. Added a bit of salt, too. Thanks!

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
This was good and so easy. I left out the mushrooms and extra seasonings (besides poultry seas. and parsley). I boiled the giblets in water for an hour or two and used that "broth" plus additional chicken broth to get to the level of moistness we wanted. It was so nice to be able to plug in the slow cooker instead of trying to juggle so many things in the oven!

Southern Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
I hate sweet potatoes but I've been trying different recipes for Thanksgiving for the past couple of years. This got rave reviews from all of my guests and was so easy!

Juicy Peach Crisp

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
I made this for my mom's birthday and she loved it! Doesn't make a huge amount but it's so simple and tastes great with vanilla ice cream. I liked the addition of the almond extract. It's the wrong season for fresh peaches so I just used 2 15 oz. cans of sliced peaches.

Tangy Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
This was just OK for us. The meat was certainly tender but I felt it was rather bland. I added minced garlic to the ingredients, marinated overnight, then boiled the leftover marinade and let it reduce down and add a bit of butter for richness. Don't know if we'll have again.

Slow-Cooker Lasagne

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
This was OK, just kinda dry and blah. I was disappointed.

Slow Cooker Roast Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
So simple yet so good! My roast was only about 2 pounds, so I cooked for about 4 1/2 hours on low. I used reduced-sodium soy sauce and found it to be perfect, not too salty at all! We sort of shredded/chunked up the beef and served on soft kaiser rolls with horseradish sauce and provolone.

Slow Cooker Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
Easy and so good! I'm thinking about making this for Thanksgiving dessert since I always have problems juggling dishes that go in the oven. I omitted the nuts and think I will try adding oats next time. I used whole wheat flour instead of white and it gave a nice nutty flavor.

Fully Loaded Cauliflower Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
This was good! A nice change from same-old potato salad. I just used a bag of real bacon bits to save time.

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
Simple and good. I used this to marinade a london broil for 24 hours before grilling. The flavor is not super-strong but it's good and tenderizes the meat. I poured the ingredients into a large Ziploc and just kneaded them around, instead of blending.
