Garlic and Basil Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
Okay I really hate to give a recipe a bad review espically if we just didn't care for the "outcome" of a recipe. This dressing is very thick, and very strong. It really over powers the flavors of the salad. Not what I expected from a vinaigrette. But with that being said I am going to give it a higher rating because it is awesome on grilled chicken and pasta. I didn't want to throw it away so I mixed it in with some left over pasta, grilled chicken, and parmeasean cheese. It tasted almost like pesto but lower in calories and fat. So give it a try on your pasta and skip in it as a salad dressing.

Holiday Mimosa

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
I gave my sister in law the task of making the Christmas brunch cocktail and she came in with this little gem! Oh my it was so good that 3 of us drank the whole pitcher ourselves. Oh and don't skip the sugar rimmed glass it gave it the right festive touch.

Double-Cheese Eggs Benedict

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
This was my first time to make Eggs Benedict and it was a hit at our Easter Brunch. What a great and elegant dish that took very little time. Don't let the fear of poached eggs scare you. Once I got the time down (3 min.) for my eggs they were perfect and the sauce was very light and tasty.

Slow Cooker Reuben Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
This was a hit a Christmas Eve. The only difference was I used a can of drained Bavarian Sauerkraut and 1/2 pound of deli shaved corned beef. I put it in my crock pot on low and then before I served it I drizzled the Thousand Island dressing on top. Serve with some of the Triscuit Rye crackers if you can find them in your grocery store. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

Cajun Grilled Corn

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
This was a nice twist on traditional grilled corn. I did however husk my corn, rub butter all over and sprinkle the cajun seasoning onto it, and then wrapped it up in foil. Mine took about 45 minutes on the grill so plan ahead so it can be done when you take your meat off the grill.

Chicken Taquitos

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
These were so great! I cooked my chicken in the crockpot with a jar of salsa. I mixed the shredded chicken with some onions and placed it into my steamed corn tortillas. I placed the tortillas in a wet paper towel and microwaved them for a minuted. They were soft and I had no probelm with breaking. I didn't fry but brushed them with olive oil and baked them until crispy. Sereved with queso, quacamole, and sour cream. This a fun Saturday night meal that was a great alternative to eating out.

Orange, Walnut, Gorgonzola and Mixed Greens Salad with Fresh Citrus Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2007
Wow this was great! Everyone at dinner gobbled it up and kept asking for the recipe. I followed others advice for all olive oil, and less sugar. I also added a clove of garlic to the dressing and it was amazing. I did sub feta cheese for the gorgonzola (not sure if everyone would like the flavor) and used mandarine oranges. Don't pass this recipe up, it an amazing and very gourmet tasting salad

Chicken Bake and Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2006
This recipe was suprisingly good and easy. I was a little afraid it would taste to much like cream of mushroom soup but it all cooked together into a nice sauce. I used the roasted garlic cream of mushroom soup, and chicken broth. The cream cheese seemed a little chunky so next time I think I might melt it in the microwave to make it smooth. I would recommend this for the great taste and the little effort.

Marshmallow Treats

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
These were so good and gooey. My kids and I couldn't stop eating them and they were a hit our cookout. I followed the tips some of the others suggested and ended up using the whole bag of marshmallows and rice krispies with a whole stick of butter. Which was great so I didn't have half a bag of marshmallows hanging around in the cabinet. Thanks for sharing will be making this alot this summer.

Skillet Bow Tie Lasagna

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
I needed something quick and easy to cook for the kids dinner and this was the answer! I did use some Italian diced tomatoes and some onion powder. I just adjusted the seasonings to our families taste and skipped the cottage cheese. It tasted alot like HH but without all the additives. Thanks for the post and another great and easy meal. Oh....the kids loved it!!

Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
This was amazing!! I think next time I will add less oil because it seemed a little heavy. Sereved on romaine, with dried cranberries, toasted walnuts, purple onion, and feta cheese. Not a drop left in the bowl.

Swiss Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2008
This is such a quick and easy casserole for those weekday meals. I layer chicken, swiss cheese, ham (if I have it), cream of mushroom soup, and then the chicken stuffing with the butter. Then make a quick side of veggies and you have a fast dinner with little prep.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2006
This in one of the best recipes for oatmeal rasin cookies I have tried. Keep to the original recipe and you will not be disappointed. They had a great flavor and stayed moist and soft after they cooled. Even after I over baked a batch.
