Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
I made this as written and it was SO good!! It was the favorite appetizer I put out and went quickly. Tastes like the dips you get in restaurants but this is better (I think) because it's chunkier with the artichoke pieces.

Cranberry Cream Cheese Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
This are quite sweet, so cut them in small squares! I made the recipe as written and it worked out well. I only had 12 oz of homemade cranberry sauce left but it was enough - I just adjusted the cornstarch down accordingly. Good way to use up leftover cranberry sauce!

Bread and Celery Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
Yay! I finally found a stuffing recipe just like my Moms! She never did get around to writing it down for me but this is it - she never used eggs or meat in her stuffing or ever stuffed it in the bird. I cubed the bread and let it dry out overnight. I doubled the recipe and it fit just right in a 9x13 pan. Also, I found 8oz of broth just fine even for a double batch, but I kept foil on until the last 10 or 15 minutes of baking so it could brown, but not get too crunchy. I will be using this recipe for all future Thanksgivings!

Delicious Apple Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
Yummy salad! I used yogurt in place of the sour cream to make a healthier salad. Substituted craisins and almonds for the raisins and pecans. A nice refreshing salad!

Easy Mini Quiches

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
This is a nice little recipe, but I think calling them "quiches" is a little deceptive - they are much more like little bacon/onion/cheese muffins. Quite good but I wouldn't serve them as an appetizer, they are more like a brunch item. I made them in mini muffin tins. - they are yummy little bit sized breakfast treats!

Convenient Vegetarian Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
The end product was DELICIOUS, but we had to make a lot of adjustments to the proportions so I can't give this 5 stars. Namely, we used 1/2 of a 16 oz box of noodles which is 9 noodles. Also 1 lb of ricotta cheese and 2 eggs was plenty of filling for a 9x13 pan. I agree with another view on sauteeing the veggies in much less oil, abt 1 T is plenty! Will definitely make this (adjusted!) recipe again :-)

Hot Caramel Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2006
This was very easy and tasty - my skeptical husband even liked them. I omitted the red hots and used a pastry blender to cut the cinnamon and sugar into the butter for easier handling when stuffing the mixture into the apples. Stuck one carmel in first, then stuffed the butter mixture, then another caramel on top. Next time I may cut down on the butter a bit as it seemed to be a lot for only 4 apples. Also, serving w/ ice cream would be nice so that you could use some of the yummy left over sauce!

Minestrone Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2006
Delicious and so easy! I used Swanson's organic chicken broth and a tomato paste w/ italian seasoning. I also used a good 2 T of the tomato paste. My husband wanted twice the noodles so against my better judgement I added 1 c and as I suspected the soup ended up pretty thick by the time the noodles were done - it's kind of like a chowder now! Also, the noodles are a bit overcooked and gluey. Next time I'll cook the noodles separately and add them to the soup so the soup maintains more of its liquid. Will definitely make this again. UPDATE: I froze about a quart of this for about 6 mos and it held up great and still tasted good!

Laura's Quick Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2006
Good chili! Very easy to make - I did as another reviewer did and used 1 can of tomato soup and 1 can of whole tomatoes instead of 2 cans of soup. Will make this one again. UPDATE: I froze some of this four months ago and just ate it last week - I'm happy to say that it was good! Held up well and tasted great!

Real Southern Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2006
The only change I made was to halve this recipe. After baking over an hour it was still not cooked inside, but the outside was pretty brown. We ate what we could be it was pretty bland. If we put chunks of it IN the chili that was the only way it was palatable. Threw away the rest. Will not make this again.

Moist Garlic Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2006
This was a good, simple recipe. Instead of slicing the garlic I used a paring knife to poke holes in the breast and inserted the whole garlic cloves right in. There was a nice garlic flavor throughout the chicken. I took another reviewer's suggestion and opened up the parchment paper during the last 30 minutes so the chicken could brown.

Garden Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2006
WOW! I love this soup!! It has to be one of the best recipes I have tried on this site in a long time. Trying to use up a bunch of soft tomatoes and this was the way to go. I used 1 can of Fat free/no salt added chicken broth and a nice extra thick slice of white onion in addition to about 4-6 cloves of garlic (does anyone else wonder if the recipe author means whole cloves as in the spice?? I can't imagine putting a sweet spice such as cloves in this soup, so I used cloves of garlic). No food mill here, so I used my immersion blender right in the soup pot then ran the soup thru a sieve to remove the solids. The roux made an amazing difference in texture - the soup thickened right up and took on that beautiful orange-red color and fantastic silky creaminess that you get with a cream soup - but no cream here! I didn't even add the salt or sugar as I liked the tangy fresh tomato taste in the soup. I will absolutely make this again and tell all my friends too!

Fresh Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2006
We were really disappointed with this recipe. First I thought the ingredient list was vague: 6 tomatoes - how big? How many ounces? Do you skin and seed them? (I did). Same thing with the onions - how many cups or how large an onion? I cooked the sauce for 30 minutes but the sauce was chunky and pretty watery so I used my immersion blender and blended the sauce which helped to thicken it and then cooked it another hour to get ride of more water. The final product was just so-so. Maybe use it as a base, like pizza sauce, but it wasn't good enough to hold up on it's own on pasta. I won't make this again.

Buster Bar Ice Cream Dessert

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2006
This was very good, but I think the fudge sauce could be better, so I can't give it 5 stars. I did make the fudge sauce a few days in advance and I think that ended up helping the flavors blend - it tasted more full and richer after it had been in the fridge a few days. The day I put the dessert together I just microwaved it a minute to make it pourable (but not hot). I also used unsalted butter which I think gave the sauce a richer flavor. I crushed the Oreos in a ziploc bag and the stuff that stuck to the sides I threw out - I think it worked better that way, so I had 99% just chocolate cookie crumbs. Lastly, I put the peanuts on top of the fudge sauce layer for a pretty presentation.

Excellent Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2006
These were nice oatmeal cookies, but not excellent. My husband really liked them but I thought they felt like they wanted to crumble when you picked them up. I also substituted 1 c raisins for the nuts.

Zucchini Parmesan

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2006
WOW - this was delicious!! We just added a little asiago cheese to the mozzarella. Great way to get your veggies and use up some zucchini. It was a little watery after baking - may saute the zucchini next time in hopes of reducing the water content.

Fried Egg Sandwich

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2006
This goes back to my childhood - it's an easy and yummy meal - I don't use ketchup and like a little Miracle Whip instead of mayo.

Oriental Cold Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2006
Nice, easy recipe but I think it would be a lot simpler to break the noodles into 3" pieces than cut them after they are cooked! I'd try this recipe again with maybe some green onions for color. UPDATE: I made this again with cold whole wheat spaghetti and it worked great. Also added some peas and grilled chicken to make it a whole meal. Yum!

Strawberry Pie II

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2006
I thought this was a little on the sweet side - the crushed berry filling tasted like strawberry jam. I guess I was expecting something more light and berry tasting. I'll try again and cut back on the sugar a bit.

Graham Cracker Crust II

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2006
Shame on me for not reading the reviews before making this crust! I always get confused about what makes up "1" cracker - I guessed wrong and figured 2 crackers per sheet and had WAY too many crumbs and a crust that fell apart. Otherwise, this is a nice, simple graham cracker crust recipe.
